Jewish But Doesn’t Know It?

Q. I have a question regarding Ezekiel Chapter 39:28.  Assuming it is possible that a person might not know that he or she is a Jew by birth, do you think it’s possible that one day a husband, let’s say, could wake up and say,”Honey, we are going to Israel.”   And the wife asks, “why?”, and the husband says, “I really do not know but we ARE going to Israel.”  I am married to a man who was orphaned at birth and knows almost nothing about his family history.  So it seems to me this could be a plausible scenario.  I believe when God says He will leave not one (of His people) behind that is exactly what He means.  I would appreciate your opinion.  And again thank you so much for all that you do.

Are We Fighting Against The Will Of God?

Q. Re: The Holocaust.  Since the holocaust, the tribulation, etc., are a judgment from God for rejecting Him, does helping the Jews, such as what happened in WWII and will happen in the tribulation, constitute fighting against the will of God – God’s will apparently being that they suffer under that judgment?

Finding Gog

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

(This is an update of a study I first posted in Nov. 2003.  I’m posting it again because of the impressive rise of Vladimir Putin, who some have suggested could be the “Gog” of the Bible.)

A Covenant With Death

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem. You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with the grave we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.”

So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed.

I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line; hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie, and water will overflow your hiding place. Your covenant with death will be annulled; your agreement with the grave will not stand. When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it. (Isaiah 28:14-18)

The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

Commentary by Jack Kelley

On the night Jesus was born, the Parthians (remnant of Persia and forerunners of today’s Iran) and the Romans (forerunners of the End Times Kingdom of the anti-Christ) were at odds with each other. The Syrians didn’t like the Jews and had tried unsuccessfully to conquer them, their attempt having been thwarted by the Maccabean revolt. Israel’s sovereignty had all but vanished, and the nation’s very existence was in doubt.

Cyrus Of Persia, Anointed Of God

Q.  My question is the meaning of verse 7 in context of the prophetic chapter 45 of Isaiah. It appears God is relaying a message to Cyrus, king of Persia to convince him who He is. Your insight is always appreciated.

Explaining The Sheep And Goat Judgment

Q. Can you please explain again how Messiah was meaning His Jewish brethren when talking about “if you did it to the least of these my brothers, you were doing it to me”, and how it means we should be helping the Jews today, whether monetarily or otherwise. Someone I’m talking to thinks it only means fellow believers, and I don’t think that’s entirely correct. Am I wrong in my thinking?

How Are Jewish People Saved?

Q. I am confused about the Jewish people and salvation. How do God’s chosen people become saved? Is it only by faith in the life and work of our Savior Jesus Christ? What about those who lived and died before He came?  Are they lost forever?
