Those Who Say They Are Jews

Q. Rev 2:9: “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.”

Rev 3:9:  “Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.”

Concerning the “group calling themselves Jews, but are not Jews” or “the Synagogue of Satan”.  Do you have any thoughts on who, currently on the world stage, this may be?

Interpreting Dreams

Q.  I am a college student taking Psychology this semester.  This week, I have an assignment due on Dream Interpretations.  My instructor sent me to a website that interprets dreams and gives their symbolic meaning.  Being a Christian, I don’t feel like this is a Christ-pleasing thing to do.  I don’t believe it’s up to us to interpret our dreams and try to put symbolic meaning to them.  I was wondering what the Biblical perspective is to interpreting dreams.  Any help or Scripture references you can give me would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you and God bless!

Why Did John Baptize People?

Q. I was wondering why, seeing as baptism was not performed in Old Testament times, John the baptist started to baptize people to symbolize their repentance.  I know in the New Testament Jesus instructs people to be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, but John came before Jesus.

Q. I was watching (a well known TV preacher) while He and his guest were discussing Communion, and how it can be taken daily to heal our infirmities. Now, I believe that God does indeed heal today, but the way they presented it made me think that they were using Communion as a tonic. I covet your thoughts please.

The Gift Of The Holy Spirit

Q. I have a question about this verse: “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?” My question is, did Jesus imply we have to ask for the Holy Spirit?  I thought the Spirit was already sealed in us by God when we first believed?

It’s What We Believe, Not How We Behave

Q. I have a question on Romans. What does Paul really mean in Romans 7:25 where he said that “with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin”. Does this mean that even though he can’t outwardly keep the law that pleases God as long as he has the will of wanting to do what is right, it is already a mode of serving the law of God?

Latter Day Hybrid Beings

Q.  As a Bible teacher, I don’t think I can simply pass off questions  from people I love and respect, whose integrity and character is solid and Biblical, about the bigfoot and other cryptid animal sightings.  Only one hint I’ve been able to find in Scripture are Jesus’ words about the Days of Noah being similar to the End of the Age. In those Days, apparently, there were strange humans and animals including giants and others.  Do we have an answer for these folks?
