Q. Re: Rev. 11:19. This verse has puzzled me for some time, and with having heard/read that “the ark of His testament” resides under the Dome of The Rock in Jerusalem presently, I was wondering what are your thoughts on this verse?
Q. Do you have a teaching on Matthew 16:28? What was Jesus talking about?
Q. If the plagues of Egypt are a type of Tribulation and God doesn’t spare the Isrealites until the 5th plague(in fact their lives get much worse as they begin), is this symbolic of a mid trib rapture? I believe in the pre-trib, but haven’t been able to come up with an answer to the above with any satisfaction.
Q. I have a question about marriage. Is it okay to be married? This may seem foolish but the Bible says it is better for a man to be single. I am already married but this makes me feel that I’m weak for not staying alone. thank you for your insight.
Q. Would you please clarify this verse for us?
“Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; he who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere youth; he who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed. Isaiah 65:20.
It sounds like there will be death in the millennium. Am I understanding that verse correctly? I am also trying to understand in the millennium - Rev 22:2 – that the leaves will heal the nations – why do the nations need to be healed?
Q. In 1 Corinthians 7:17-23, Paul talked about believers remaining in situations that they once were. He states that God wants the believer (new or existing) to remain in the situation as he/she once was. For instance, Paul said that if a believer was called while a slave, he told them not to be concerned about it. The same goes for circumcision. In responses to situations, do you believe God puts believers in conflicting or bad situations as He did with Paul? For example, does God want us to be in prison for a crime we did not commit? If we were in slavery, does God want us to remain slaves? This is something to think about when meditating on this verse. How do you look at this verse?
Q. Who was Barabbas? I have been intrigued by the meaning of his name (son of the father, if I’m not mistaken). Can you shed some light into his role?
Q. In the July 18 th Q&A titled ‘Won’t All Christians Be Gone’ you wrote in paragraph two…and I paraphrase: ‘seeing the Church gone will motivate those who rejected (did not accept after hearing) would be motivated by the Rapture’ to believe. How do you reconcile this with 2 Thessalonians 2:5-12?
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
In our study of Matt. 5:21-48 (Be Perfect, Therefore, As Your Heavenly Father Is Perfect) I showed why I believe that Jesus, while not specifically addressing the Pharisees, certainly had them in mind when He explained what it would take to earn admittance into the Kingdom in one’s own strength.
Q. My question is this: In 2 Kings 5:1 it says Naaman was a leper but a mighty man of valor. I thought lepers were supposed to be separated from society. How is it that Naaman led a mighty army and had the victory given to him by God. Also there is another teaching that Naaman is the one who shot the arrow that killed Ahad which has nothing to do with my question. Naaman was also married with a mistress. Why wasn’t Naaman separated from people?
