Yet Another Trinity Question

Q. I thank the Lord for all the blessing that I am receiving everyday from your website and the wisdom that God gave to you to explain His word to us. I have a  question about your explanation of the Trinity and our Lord Jesus Christ. You said Jesus is forever in human form, you mean like us? But we are created in the image of God and maybe God looks like us?

Second, to whom Jesus paid the price for our sins? We all know that Jesus is our creator as it says in Hebrew and even Lucifer he is a created being of God and everything was created by Him and for Him. Lastly, why it says in Isaiah that our Lord Jesus will die as a ransom for many, why not all?

Are Tribulation Believers Saved By Grace?

Q. Can I know if the tribulation saints are saved by grace through faith in Jesus like the church or by their ability to endure and keep their faith to the end or by enduring and keeping their faith based on the eternal gospel announced by the angel. Are the Jews who survive the Great Tribulation judged based on their faith in the coming messiah or their ability to endure to the end?

Understanding Ephesians 5

Q.   I know that God requires nothing more from us for salvation than our faith in the redeeming sacrifice of Jesus. Most days I am comfortable in that belief, however, this morning in my devotional time, I read a passage that I have read many times before, yet today it struck a nerve.  If Paul is addressing believers in the Ephesian Church, then why in chapter 5 does he warn that anyone who is guilty of the sins listed in verse 3 will not have an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God?

A Torah Observant Christian?

Q. A friend of mine describes herself as a “born again, Spirit filled, Torah observant, believer in Yeshua (Jesus).”  Have you ever heard of this?  I can’t help being intrigued, because I have such love and admiration for the Jewish people.  Clearly my old friend believes in Jesus.  But seems that anyone observing the Torah couldn’t possibly embrace grace and forgiveness through faith.    I’m so confused… can you please help me unravel this?

Back Slidden Brides Maids?

Q.  I am confused. Most bible commentaries I have read suggest that the foolish virgins represent Christians who have become ‘backslidden’ and do not seek a true relationship with Our Lord or those who have been ‘given over to their sin’ (1 Cor 5:5), but haven’t yet cried out to God for the mercy of His Grace. I would be grateful for your comments.

The Feast Of Pentecost

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Pentecost comes in the early summer (mid May-mid June).   It’s the only Levitical Feast Day between the 3 Spring Feasts (Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits) and the 3 in the fall (Rosh Hashanna, Yom Kippur, and Tabernacles). The Hebrew name for this Day is Shavuot, which means weeks, so in Israel it’s often called the Feast of Weeks.

The Church And The Bride

Q. I have truly been blessed through your ministry, and find the information on your website very helpful in my walk with God. please help me understand the difference between the Church and the bride of Christ.  Apparently, some think there is a difference between the two.  They say faith in Jesus does save us… but to attend the wedding (i.e. get caught up in the rapture to meet Jesus) we must complete the mission God has for us.  I just want clarification because I do want to live a life pleasing to the Lord.

Jesus And Peter

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed him. (Matt 4:18-20)

Over Comers And The Rapture

Q. Don’t know if this is an appropriate question for you. I already know your answer but I know there are a lot of people out there teaching erroneous things. I “surfed” by (a well known evangelist’s) teaching the other day and was troubled at what he said about the Rapture.

He stated that not all believers will go in the Rapture, only those who have “overcome”. He said we have to overcome “the world, the flesh and the devil before we are “true” believers.  Doesn’t this negate all that Jesus did on the Cross?? Maybe you can clarify this for some of the others who may have heard the same teaching.
