Q. I know from your studies that God has 3 different “groups” of people on the earth, Jews, Gentiles, and the Church. Was the idea of the church in God’s mind all along, or did it come about because of the Jews being disobedient? Also is there a purpose for the church in eternity?
He has set his foundation on the holy mountain; the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. Glorious things are said of you, O city of God: “I will record Rahab and Babylon among those who acknowledge me—Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush and will say, ‘This one was born in Zion.’ “
Indeed, of Zion it will be said, “This one and that one were born in her, and the Most High himself will establish her.” The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: “This one was born in Zion.” As they make music they will sing, “All my fountains are in you.” Continue reading…
Q. I have a friend who continually says she can’t wait to get to heaven to see her deceased husband. Her daughter tells her she knows of no scripture to confirm this possibility. Can you please give a reply to settle this confusing matter for them?
Q. I’m bothered by an article I read on the Internet about being “saved.” The writer quotes multiple scriptures, and states quite dogmatically that “one must believe in the resurrection…confess the resurrection…to be saved. He lists a series of common steps seekers are guided to take by various churches and evangelists such as, “Invite Jesus into your heart….” or “Accept Jesus as your personal savior …” or “Say the sinner’s prayer” as being inadequate. Do you agree?
Q. I find it difficult to find the age of accountability explained in Romans 7:9. Are there other verses that might be a little clearer?
Q. Eph. 2:6 says we were, “…seated with Him in heavenly places.” I don’t understand this “reality,” since we are clearly still in this world, where Jesus said we would have tribulation. I can accept this truth by faith, but it is a mystery to me–why did He say this? Is there something we should try to appropriate because of this reality?
Q. My day is incomplete without paying a visit in your site. Thank you very much for the insight that you give us regarding the word of God. I have a friend that was born after her mother was raped. She doesn’t know her father. I strongly believe that God is all knowing and people come from God and he even knew how we would be born, but I want to know in the case of this friend of mine if was it God’s plan that she was born out of rape? If no, then how come God allowed this person to be born in such a situation?
Q. Concerning this Scripture: “As it is written: No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit.” (1 Cor. 2:9-10). Please excuse me for asking a dumb question but I don’t know what the last part means or “but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit”. Maybe I’m complicating this verse but I really don’t know what the Spirit has revealed.
Q. Lucifer, a beautiful creation (at that time), a cherub of the throne of God and yet in all the perfection of heaven, sin was found in him, now we who have lived our earthly lives in nothing but sin and saved by the grace through faith of Jesus, will enter into Heaven’s perfection . Will there be a chance sin could be found in any of us? Or will all evil be destroyed when Satan in cast into the lake of fire.
Q. You say the Jews will live in the Millennium under the Messiah, and then go on to their eternal destiny in what we call Israel. Will these Jews have eternal life? Will they go to Heaven when they die if they are faithful to Messiah? You say their fate is different from the Church, but do they have eternal life, or is that not stated?
