Between The Ascension And Pentecost

Q. I just can’t seem to get enough of your website.  I have learned more in the last few days than I have in the last few years!  Blessings upon blessings to you for sharing your wisdom!!

One thing I am wondering is… Why is there 10 days between the ascension of Yeshua and His giving of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost?   Numbers are always significant and so I am wondering what this means or is symbolic of?   Why didn’t he send the Holy Spirit right away?  Thanks!! Continue reading…

Is The Rapture A Number Specific Event?

Q. First of all, I thank God for making your knowledge and understanding available to the body of Christ and thank you for giving your time and energy to this excellent ministry. Now to my question.

I have heard and read many times that the timing of the rapture is based on the completion of the church, whatever number God decides is complete. This explanation has always seemed arbitrary to me and God is anything but arbitrary.  Also, I’m not aware of any scripture that says this or even hints at it. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Why Is Samson Among The Faithful?

Q. I’m a little confused why Samson is mentioned in Hebrews 11:32-34.  As I reread the account in Judges, it seems to me that his life was anything but a walk in faith.  I can’t recall a single incident in his life where he did what he knew was right according to his faith.  He defiled himself from the moment when he touched a dead lion to the point of sleeping with the prostitute and revealing the secret of his strengh to Delilah.  Even the motivation for his final moment when he killed his enemies in the temple was revenge.  He was a poor judge and a failer as a Nazirite.  Why is he mentioned among the faithful? What does Samson mean? Continue reading…

Did God Judge The Sea Creatures?

Q. Why did God not judge the sea creatures when the whole earth was defiled because of the wickedness of man (Genesis 6:5, 17-20). Is it because Noah’s ark was the first ship that was built upon the earth so that the seas were undefiled by the presence of man over it? And also in those days the sea and the land were separated perfectly during the creation of the earth.   God had the whole waters under the heaven gathered together in one place and then there was one dry land.

How Did Rahab Escape?

Q. Just like many others, I feel inclined to start this e-mail by thanking you for your ministry and for your dedication to digging deeper and helping others come to a better understanding of the Lord and His Word. Also, thanks for the answers you’ve provided to the questions I’ve already asked you; they were quite helpful.
The thing that has me thoroughly confused today is Rahab’s house, described in Joshua 2:15, which says “Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the city wall; she dwelt on the wall.”

You can probably see where this question is going. How did the Israelites spare the lives of Rahab and her family if they were inside of a house on top of a wall that collapsed right before the city was defeated? Continue reading…

Death In The Millennium?

Q. Would you please clarify this particular verse.

“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. Continue reading…

Is It OK To Be Married?

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. Continue reading…

Who Is The Group In Rev. 7?

Q. First I love your website!!! Very informative and has helped me so much in my study in end times prophecy!  I used to be very uneasy about end times prophecy but now that I have accepted Christ into my heart, I don’t fear anymore!!! I know I have a one way ticket! Amen!

I have a question regarding Rev. 7:9. I am in a current debate with a non-believer of the pre-trib rapture. He insists that those mentioned in verse 9 are the church, still here on earth, therefore no rapture. Continue reading…

Was The Lord Condoning Self Defense?

Q. Re Luke 22:36:  “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one

Would you please explain this verse about buying a sword? Is Jesus condoning self defense? Continue reading…
