Still More On The Eye Of The Needle

Q.  Re: Mark 10:25.  Is there any truth in the theory that a ‘camel’ is an Aramaic reference to a thick rope used to secure boats to docks etc, which would make a lot more sense than referring to an animal?

Speaking Grace To The Mountain

Q.  I have a question concerning Grace.  Is it possible or is there a scripture that says we can speak Grace to the mountain?  The mountain being sickness, prosperity, problems, etc.
In our church service on Sunday we were told we could speak Grace to the mountain.  There was no scripture reference.  Can you help me with this?

Nimrod The Hunter

Q.   I’ve recently comes across 2 people who are naming their babies ‘Hunter’. Doesn’t this mean Nimrod?  And aren’t they cursing their babies?  Now my nephew wants to name his son Hunter.  There is still time for him to change his mind, so I would really appreciate your opinion.

How Many Gods Are There?

Q. My question:  Is there more than one God ?  I interpret Genesis 1:26  to mean that there may be multiple Gods through out the Universe.  Then God said, ” let us make human beings in our image and likeness.” Continue reading…

King Solomon and The Queen Of Sheba

Q. I have a question about Solomon,  I have read in several places that Solomon married the queen of Sheba but in the bible I can only find where she came to him to see if his fabled wisdom was true. Once she found out it was true the last I read of the queen of Sheba is that she returned to her land (1 kings 10:13). Am I missing something? Did Solomon marry the queen of Sheba? And where can I find that in the bible?

Finding God’s Promises For Me

Q.  When reading the Bible, how can one claim a verse of scripture for themselves?  For example, Jeremiah 29:11.  I have heard so many claim this verse as their own, believing that God intended this for them and their current situation. But as you read this chapter, it is specific to Israel and God releasing them from Babylonian captivity. As I write to you on this, my heart is pounding.  I want to claim or pray a verse for my situation, but I am thinking that it is just futile worthless hope. How can I apply verses of God’s word to my situation today when they are part of a bigger issue and theme. Do you understand what I am saying?

Where Were Samuel And Saul?

Q.  In 1 Samuel 28:19, Samuel says that Saul and his sons will be with him after they die.  Samuel was faithful to God and served God all his life so I’m assuming the he went to Sheol to wait to go to heaven when Jesus died on the cross for our sins. Also Saul’s son Jonathon was a man of God and King David’s closest friend. If Samuel went to Sheol, Saul must have gone there, too.   But if Saul, who according to 1 Samuel 28:16 had become God’s enemy,  went to hell then Samuel and Saul’s sons must have too since the Bible says they are all in the same place. So does that mean Samuel is in hell?

Trusting The Lord For Everything

Q. I have always wondered when God writes “He will supply all your needs, and that “we are not to worry about the clothes we wear, food to eat”.  But then I see those in very poor, third world countries and I am sure there are believers there. How do they not worry and wonder if their needs will be met when conditions are so terribly bad?  There are many believers who are losing homes and jobs now even in the US, and I wonder why God allows His children to lose everything but then says not to worry, that He’ll supply those basic needs?
