The Ashes Of A Red Heifer

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The Lord said to Moses and Aaron: “This is a requirement of the law that the Lord has commanded: Tell the Israelites to bring you a red heifer without defect or blemish and that has never been under a yoke. Give it to Eleazar the priest; it is to be taken outside the camp and slaughtered in his presence. Then Eleazar the priest is to take some of its blood on his finger and sprinkle it seven times toward the front of the tent of meeting. While he watches, the heifer is to be burned—its hide, flesh, blood and intestines. The priest is to take some cedar wood, hyssop and scarlet wool and throw them onto the burning heifer” (Numbers 19:1-6).

An Hour When We Don’t Expect Him?

Q. Thank you for the tremendous effort you put into your site.  It is a great blessing and a must read every day.  It seems like every where I read just about every one, that is all born again believers, are expecting the rapture very soon, but the Bible says it will happen at a time when it is not expected . The thought that we might have to wait longer for it to occur is sad, can you please comment.

Overpopulation Problems In Eternity?

Q. Do you think that those who make it through the Tribulation and Millennium will enter eternity in their mortal bodies and thus continue to produce children? If so, wouldn’t the earth eventually become overpopulated and thus the need to colonize other planets? I know it sounds wacky, but it has crossed my mind a couple of times.

The Church And America

Q.  Do you think the Church will be here if America does not repent of her sins, or will be taken out of the way.  There are many of us who pray our leaders will repent of the lawlessness they are forcing on the people.  But it seems to be getting worse.  I would appreciate your thoughts on this subject.

What’s The Point?

Q. What’s the point of the Bible telling us all about the end times such as the Great Tribulation, the Anti-Christ, seals, trumpets, bowls when we all will be gone from Earth in the rapture and we, the church, are the only ones who read the Bible?

What Is He Restraining?

Q. Re: The Restrainer = Holy Spirit resident in the Church.  The question centered on who was being restrained.  My small group leader didn’t feel that 2 Thess 2:7 was necessarily talking about the restraining of evil. He asked the question – How much restraining is the Church really doing anyway? – Not so much.  Seems a bit egotistical to believe that we as the Church are having that much effect on Evil.  His thought was that it was the Lord’s Wrath that was being restrained.  That it couldn’t fall until the Church was taken out.

This seems to match scripturally.  The event that allowed the Lord’s Wrath to fall in Sodom/Gomorrah and other “wrath” events in the Bible was a separation of the righteous from the unrighteous.  The Lord’s Wrath is restrained until that separation occurs.  How does this square with your thoughts?

Seven Heads, Really?

Q.  Upon reading Revelation 13:1-3, verse 1 states the beast has “seven heads and ten crowns”.  Verse 3 says that “one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.”  Is this “wounded to death” head an actual man’s head?  I mean, how can this “beast” not look ghastly??  Seven heads?  It’s like something from a sci-fi movie!  Verse 2 explains that in more detail.  This is a picture of the Anti-Christ, yes?  If so, how can he look like this and be ever-so desirable to the nations?  It sounds like he looks hideous.

The Seven Thunders Of Rev. 10

Q. I was studying the judgments of the end times for the purpose of warning some friends I care about what awaits them if they continue to put off salvation. I’d like your opinion on something.  While the fact is no one knows for sure it seems to me that the 7 thunders are an unrevealed series of judgments, probably worse than the trumpet judgments, but not as severe as the bowl judgments.  I say this because of the number of thunders and the location of the thunders in the book.  What’s your opinion?
