Q. I’ve been on the net studying dinosaurs in the bible and it appears that the “Kronosaurus” (leviathan) is talked about in Job 41, Isiah 27:1, and Psalm 104:25,26 and the “Brachiosaurus” (behmoth) is talked about in Job 40:15-24. If these animals are dinosaurs, how could they have escaped the flood? What are your thoughts on this?
Q. I’ve recently read your article printed in ‘Prophecy Update’ regarding Messianic prophecy in the O.T. You mentioned that Matthew’s genealogy traces Joseph’s line, while Luke’s traces that of Mary, mother of Jesus. But I’m struggling to see how Luke shows the line of Mary – albeit v.11 mentions Nathan, David’s brother.
But how does that relate to Mary?
Q. If you read Matthew 18 : 6 and 14 you will know that the little ones among us need to have faith in order to be saved and that they could also be lost. I believe there is not one being in the entire mankind who doesn’t need our Lord Jesus to save him from being condemned, even the little ones need salvation otherwise they could be lost. Moreover read also Psalms 51 : 5 to see that you become a sinner since the time you are conceived in your mother’s womb.
Q. Many blessings to you for your ministry! My question is Jesus has a glorified body from the resurrection. We will all have these bodies at the Rapture at least the believers will. I was told that in heaven God will have no body. I would think he would have a Glorified body also but maybe not. I mean you have the Holy Trinity. I guess I have just always assumed the Father & Son would have glorified bodies and then you have the spirit part of the Triune as the unseen always working for the glory of God. What do you think?
Q. I have been listening to your mp3 series on Revelation for two days and I have to take a little break to try to work out an idea that has cropped up. If a river flows out of the temple mount and runs in two directions and one of the directions is toward the Med. Sea, then I can’t see how the Med Sea flow into the river won’t change the direction back toward the other end. The other end of that flow would be the Dead Sea. Isn’t the Dead Sea way below sea level? And if so, won’t the water try to reach it’s own level which would be the level of the Med Sea?
Q. Re: 2 Corinthians 13:1-10. I hope all is well and could you please explain what Paul meant by “I will not spare them— since you seek proof that Christ is speaking in me.”…. and…. “that when I come I may not have to be severe in my use of the authority that the Lord has given me for building up and not for tearing down.”
What exactly was Paul able to do in his authority? And do we also have this authority in Christ as Paul did? And how severe could he be with this authority? I realize that in part it has to do with the people sinning, but it appears that Paul has reached the boiling point of “no more grace for you, now it’s the power of God time”. This passage for some odd reason reminds me of Clark Kent turning into Superman!
Q. There is a command from God somewhere in the first few books of the Bible not to drink the blood of any animal. I can’t remember the exact place. Anyhow, I purchase protein powder for convenience and some brands carry a small amount of “bovine plasma protein”, which is literally blood protein from a cow (powdered, of course). It is full of immunoglobins and agents beneficial for the intestines. Breast milk also contains some similar chemicals. I’ve never consumed it and didn’t want to because of this command.
Q. The question I have is from Revelation 11:3 about who are the two witnesses. Some speculate that it could be Enoch because Enoch walked with God and was not, and it could be Elijah because Elijah was taken into Heaven without dying. I myself have the belief that it will be two that we have never heard of. I also have a problem with the idea that God would send one of the old prophets back here after they have already done everything God asked them to do the first time.
Q. I have a question which I have always wondered about. When the woman caught in adultery was about to be stoned, the Bible says that Jesus wrote something in the dirt. What was it that he wrote, and why did He do that? Thank you very much for your answer to this question and to all the other questions that you have answered for me and so many others through your daily posts.
Q. Thank you for your ministry and the many answers and teachings with which I’ve been blessed. Recently I was asked a question that I could not answer Biblically- Let’s say a man walks into his house only to witness another man raping his sister, he then grabs his gun and fires off three rounds killing the rapist., Now assuming that he’s fully within the law (owning the weapon and shooting at the intruder/rapist as allowed in many states) has this man (a born again believer in Christ) committed a sin? Are we not commanded in the Word “Thou Shall Not Kill”, and if it’s not a sin, when and where in Scripture was that commandment rescinded?
