Q. I would like to get your comment on 1 Samuel 6:19-20, why did the Lord smite all those people for looking into the Ark? And what lesson can we garner from these verses, like is there a type of grace or the forthcoming of grace (I hope I am making sense)?
Q. Why is it important that Jesus sit at the right hand of God the father? There seem to be a lot of verses that talk about the right hand, why?
Q. I read in one of the questions that you answered that there will be no time in eternity. I always believed that, too, but have read in a few Bible versions and books that Rev. 10:6 means “no more delay” rather than “time no more”. What do you think about the interpretation of it as “no more delay”? Are time and eternity different?
Q. In Romans 15:1-3, Paul tells us to please others, preferably our neighbor, for their own good. He then goes on to say that Jesus Christ did not come on this earth to please himself at all. However, in Galatians 1:10, Paul said that if were to please men, he would not be a servant of God. When comparing these two verses together, what do they mean? Are we to please God or please others?
Q. I believe that the Bible teaches that the Lord will come for His church before the Tribulation. But I was reading an article by another Bible teacher/author who says that there are no verses to support the timing of the Rapture being before the Tribulation. He seemed to have kind of a snarky attitude about it, too. I don’t know why, as fellow believers in the Lord Jesus, why some get so worked up about it and make the claim that it’s a deception for us to believe in the pre-tribulation rapture. What do you think?
Q. Re. John 9:4. What does Jesus mean when he says that the night is coming when no man can work? Did it come then? Or is it for this time?
Q. Re: Will I Be Left Behind Because Of My Habits? I read in this article you state “the Bible doesn’t mention drug use” I agree 110% that the only requirement for salvation and being part of the rapture is believe alone, by faith alone and by Christ alone. 1 Thes 4:14 says if we believe that Jesus died & rose again we’re in. However, the Greek word translated sorcery in Gal 5:19-21 is “pharmakeia” where we get the English word pharmacy. It’s talking about drugs.
Q. In the epistle of Jude, Chapter 1, Verses 14 &15, (KJV) he mentions a prophecy of Enoch dealing with the return of the Lord accompanied by ten thousands of His saints to execute judgment upon all. Since those saints had to be in Heaven in order to accompany the Lord back to earth, isn’t this a prophecy describing the end of the Rapture period of the Church in Heaven and the Second Coming of Christ?
Q. I saw a video in which a Bible scholar taught on a passage in Luke that he claimed was the Lord giving us a clue to the Antichrist’s identity. In Luke 10:18, Jesus said, “And I beheld Satan as lightning falling from the heavens…”. The filmmaker went on to point out that in the Hebrew text, the word for ‘lightning’ is ‘Baraq’, and ‘heavens, or ‘high places’ is Bamah. You can see where he was going with this but it didn’t set right with me, so I decided to ask you about it. What are your thoughts on this?
Q. Re: What Does Deny Mean? You made the comment that some English translations use the word “disown” in 2 Tim 2:12, but the Greek word is never translated that way, and it changes Paul’s meaning because to disown means to renounce or repudiate. When I looked it up in the online interlinear Bible, it is always translated ‘disown’. Now I’m confused.
