Q. I can tell you why I voted for Obama even though I am a Christian. First let me say neither candidate was a Christian. Then I asked myself whose policies show the most concern for the needy as God has directed as I do not see churches being able to carry this burden totally and in fact most do very little in this area. What do you think?
Q. I just finished reading your article on Gospel of the kingdom, and it seems to me that , according to what I read, the period of grace which the present church is enjoying is the period between the 69th and 70th week of Daniel’s prophecy. What is the difference and / or similarity between kingdom of God and the present church of God? Another one is that, the kingdom of God prophesied by Daniel, is it a physical kingdom or a spiritual one?
Q. Will raptured Saints rule and reign with Jesus “physically” on earth during the millennium? Revelation and Zechariah both describe Jesus’ 2nd coming when He comes with His army “clothed in fine linen, white and clean”, which are the clothes given to Jesus’ bride in Revelation 19. To me this means that we are “with” Jesus when He comes back to reign on earth.
Q. What does Jesus mean in Revelation 2:5 when he warns the church in Ephesus he might remove their lamp stand from its place among the churches?
Q. In my recent study of false prophets in 2 Peter 2:10 and Jude 8 the term glorious ones (ESV) or celestial beings (NIV) was used to describe that which the false prophets blaspheme but angels dare not. Who are these glorious ones? The Greek word for glorious ones and how it’s used in other verses it puzzling.
Q. My question has to do with those martyred during the Tribulation. If I understand your teaching correctly, these are not part of the church/bride who will reign with Christ and are called priests and Kings. Revelation 20:4 says some of these martyrs came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.” What does it mean “and reigned with Christ for a thousand years? What is their destiny in the millennium?
Q. I believe you just recently said that there will be three different groups of saints. the old testament saints, the church age saints, and the tribulation saints. You also said the church age saints will live in the New Jerusalem and that the other two groups won’t get to live there. I know God has a perfect plan but in my human mind, I’m not sure that sounds fair. Don’t Moses or Abraham or Noah get to live in the New Jerusalem with the rest of us?
Q. We know that God has not already raptured the Church because of His long suffering, giving every human a chance to trust His plan of salvation. Do you think He will come back at a time when every person that will make a decision for Him will have done so, or will there be those who might have trusted Him at a later date, but be lost because He came back? Or do you think it is simply a number thing, when the full number of Gentiles has come in?
Q. Will babies who have been aborted go directly to the Lord as members of the Church or will they be part of another population? I imagine they would be the Church, but I’d appreciate your clarification.
Q. Re: the different races. I have argued that races were man made not from God. I use Act 17:26 to defend this. “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.” What do you think?
