I came across a story in Judges chapter 19, about a Levite and his concubine. Understanding 2 Timothy 3:16, what is the lesson in this story? Did she bring this on herself? Should the Levite have listened to her father and stayed one more night? Was the Levite at fault too? Why was she cut up and sent to all the coasts of Israel?
What do you think about Tony Blair being confirmed as a Roman Catholic and now that he will be stepping down as prime minister, he is being proposed as the Middle East envoy to solve the peace issue with Israel and the Palestinians
You and Hal (Lindsey) both talk as the lion is at the door and surrounding Israel. The whole Arab world armed by America. Damascus going bye-bye?
My question is how can this possibly continue until the end of seventy years from 1948 or 1967?
The following question came into my in box a few days ago and seemed to merit a more detailed answer that I usually have room for in our “Ask A Bible Teacher” column. Here it is.
Q. What is your opinion on the alleged ‘failed prophecies’ of the Bible listed below?
These days we are witnessing various (proven) healings in Christian Churches. Can the devil be linked to healings?
Q. I am a believer in the pre tribulation view point with one of the major reasons being that believers are not meant for wrath (1 Thes. 5:9 among others). However, I find that the first time the “wrath” of God is mentioned in Revelation is with the sixth seal (Rev 6:17). Could it be that the 4 Horsemen and the Souls of the Martyrs (seals 1-5) might occur before the rapture?
Something I’ve been concerned about lately (to the point of severe distress) is the arguments I’ve heard against images of Christ, and how that is clearly in violation of the second commandment. What do you think about these issues?
Do you think that Isaiah 17 will be fulfilled at the same time as the Battle of Ezekiel 38-39?
Q. I would like to know if there is any evidence of a general time frame for the Isaiah 17 prophecy to be fulfilled? I see many Bible teachers mentioning that it could be fulfilled pretty soon given the current situation in Syria. Do you think there’s any merit to this view that the Bible might not be totally clear on when the prophecy will be fulfilled?
I’ve always struggled with the concept of Hell. I can understand the concept that if you reject God, you reject everything that defines his Character: Faith, Hope and Love and all he created. However, I can’t understand why God appears to go out of his way to make Hell painful.
