Q. In a question about ISIS (the Islamic State) you referenced Daniel 11:40 which says in part, “The King of the North will storm against him with chariots, horseman, and many ships”. Will ‘chariots’ and ‘horseman’ be used in today’s technology world, so to speak, if this is speaking of the times we are in now?
Q. I sort of have an ongoing debate with a co-worker regarding the wives of Seth and Cain (Adam and Eve’s sons). My co-worker asked me where did they come from as there is no clear explanation in Genesis and they just sort of appear. I say that they have to be descendants of Adam and Eve who are the mother and father of mankind. My co-worker feels that this would be incest and can’t be. Can you clarify this for us?
Q. I have been studying the Book of Revelation lately and I believe it says somewhere in there I can’t find now about the full number coming in. It says when the full number of Gentiles are killed in Gods name is when the end will begin. Is this true? Are we waiting on a full number of people to die in Gods name for the rapture to happen?
Q. Is it possible that the trumpet judgements and the bowl judgments be defining the same events from a different perspective? It would seem that we are seeing God’s view and the unbelievers view of the same action for reinforcement.
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?
