Man’s Life Span

Q. I am new to reading the Bible and am confused about a piece in Genesis where God shortens the lifespan of people to 120 years. At first I see that people were living 800-900+ years for several generations after Adam and Eve. Then in Genesis 6:3 it seems like He shortens the life of man saying:

“And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.” (KJV) Continue reading…

When Did Jesus Die?

Thanks so much for your web site, it has been a blessing. Once again, here is another thought about the timing of our Christ being crucified. I’ve read a lot of the articles, and they all make good sense, however I never seen in any of them a couple of scriptures that are very important.

Some suppose it was Good Friday, you say Thursday is the only day, while others say Wednesday. The gospel accounts all added together give us the clearest picture of all, setting aside Jewish traditions. Some say you must account for the traditions, I say the Holy Bible alone will give you the answers. Studying the Gospels, in conjunction with the old testament, when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday that He went into the temple for the first day of inspection. Therefore the  three day inspection ended on Tuesday. Continue reading…

Does Gomer Refer To Germany In Ezekiel 38?

Q. Regarding Ezekiel 38, I can see how most of the nations mentioned are ready to attack Israel, but if the attack took place tomorrow, Gomer (Germany) would not likely join… Any ideas as to what may change this situation? Continue reading…

What Does “All Things” Mean?

Q. Romans 8:32 says: “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” What does it mean that “…graciously give us all things”? What are these “all things”? God bless you! Continue reading…

Ezekiel 38, Zechariah 12, and Zechariah 14

Q. I have thought for a long time that the even as mentioned in Zechariah 12 is describing the Ezekiel war as mentioned in Ezekiel 38 and 39 and that Zechariah 14 is about the event that will occur later during the tribulation period. However, as I read Zechariah 12:3 again where it is written, ” On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations…”, Continue reading…

Playing In The Spirit

Q. Thank you for an amazing website!  So many things have been made clearer to me because of it.  I was reading 1 Chronicles 25 this morning and the words “who were to prophesy with lyres, harps and cymbals” caught my attention.  Can you explain how to prophesy with music? Continue reading…

Do We Have Our New Heart Yet?

Q. Both Jeremiah and Ezekiel prophesied that believers would have “a new heart” (Jer. 31:33, Ezek. 11:19-20 and 36:26-27), and Paul and other N.T. writers seem to indicate this prophecy has come true in Rom. 2:29, Rom. 6:17, and Heb. 8:10.

Would you say that this prophecy has been fulfilled or do you believe the new heart is not yet available to us? Continue reading…

The Timing Of Ezekiel 38

Q. Some scholars preaches that the war of Gog and Magog is at the beginning of the Great Tribulation.  Others believe that it will start at the beginning of Daniel’s 70th Week. It says in the word of God that it takes seven months for the Jewish people to bury the dead and seven years for them to use the fuel left by those who attacked them. If the first view is correct  and Ezekiel’s war does not start till the Great tribulation, then the seven years it takes to use the fuel left by Russia and others will over lap into the one thousand year millennium.  I do not see that happening since it seems to differ with the word of God. Continue reading…

Signs Of His Coming

Q. I have a twofold question this time regarding Matt.24:29,30.

First, in Matt.24:3 the disciples asked Jesus “what shall be the sign of thy coming,?” Doesn’t Jesus’s appearing in heaven with all the saints and the holy angels have to be the sign?  Otherwise it seems  he left their question unanswered because he doesn’t describe any other sign. Continue reading…

Span Of Time Between Resurrection And Rapture

Q. Thank you for your blessed words, I read your comments daily and have a question concerning the coming rapture.  I was always confused about the statement that, we would not all sleep, but the dead in Christ would rise first, then we who are alive would follow.  I always felt that these two events do not happen in the twinkling of an eye together but rather there is a space of time between the two events.
