A Question On 1 John

Q. 1 John 4:1-3 admonishes us to “not believe every spirit… but to test the spirits.”  Further, “every spirit” is of God if it confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh.

What are those “spirits” we are to test?  Am I correct in assuming that the “spirits” we are to test are the message a speaker or writer promulgates?  That a speaker/writer who denies the divinity of Jesus is not of God?

Should We Associate With People From False Religions?

Q. I am very thankful for this website.   I believe that God has used this to confirm many things that He has shown me and He has also used it to teach me (of which I have gone to confirm it through His Word!).  Thank you for your obedience to your ministry!

I was reading your article about Contemplative Prayer (which I had never heard about) and looked up Deut. 18 to read about how we are to not have anything to do with people who practice witchcraft etc.

A Predestination Question

Q. If you read Proverbs 16:4 that The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil, does not this imply that the Westminster Confession of Faith regarding election and predestination of both the good and evil to be true?

Who Are The Gentiles?

Q. When the Bible mentions Gentiles, I believe that it is speaking specifically to a certain race of people.  For example, in Genesis chapter 10, it talks about the sons of Noah and their offspring.  The Bible states that one of Noah’s sons Japheth, is where the Gentiles originated.  And when the gentiles are mentioned in the New Testament, I believe that they were referring to the Romans.  What’s your thought on this?

The Correct Form Of Baptism

Q. My pastor had a sermon the other week and stated a person should get baptized by the name of Jesus Christ not just  by the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. He says the Bible states this and that a man changed it. I was baptized by the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit not by Jesus Christ.  Should I get baptized again?

Perfect In His Generations

Q. My question concerns Gen 6: 9. The verse states that Noah was perfect in his generations and walked with God. In verse 18, God tells Noah “thou shalt come into the ark, thou and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee.” What was the lineage of Noah’s wife and the sons’ wives? Were they considered perfect in their generations? Thank you and God bless you and your family. Your web site is a blessing to a lot of people.

Fufilling Obadiah 1:15

Q. Do you see a correlation between the actions of the US Presidents regarding Israel and the problems the US experiences.  Does this fit Obadiah 1:15 or are the incidents simply coincidental?  I enjoy your web site and have found the information enlightening and helpful to share with scores of others.  I enjoy God’s prophecies and I pray for the coming fulfillment.

Is Mary The Only One Who Knew?

Q. Re: Mark 14: 3,8:
And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leaper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious: and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.

The Disciples were up set and said it should have been sold and the money used for the poor.
But Jesus said,

She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.

Question: did this woman know and understand Jesus was about to die and be put in the tomb but his disciples did not?

A Question On John 7:7-8

Q. I am reading and studying in John.  I’ve read John 7 before, but never noticed the inconsistency regarding the word “yet” in verse 8 .  I thought maybe it was the translation I was reading, (it doesn’t have the word at all) but when I read a different one, it says that the earliest manuscripts didn’t have the word “yet”.
