Wrestling With God

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

How a simple wresting match foretold the history of the nation Israel.

That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two maidservants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions. So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man.

The Branch

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land.(Jeremiah 23:5)

Listen, O high priest Joshua and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch.(Zech 3:8)

Here is the man whose name is the Branch, and he will branch out from his place and build the temple of the LORD.(Zech 6:12)

Living In The Millennium

Q.  I was wondering about who lives where in the Millennium. To go a step further, say we go in the rapture but have a family member who gets saved during the Tribulation and survives. It is true to assume they could not visit us in the New Jerusalem, but that we could visit them on Earth? And where are the Biblical heroes and redeemed people of the Old Testament?

Proving The Bible Is The Word Of God

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Naaman The Syrian

Q.  My question is this: In 2 Kings 5:1 it says Naaman was a leper but a mighty man of valor. I thought lepers were supposed to be separated from society. How is it that Naaman led a mighty army and had the victory given to him by God. Also there is another teaching that Naaman is the one who shot the arrow that killed Ahad which has nothing to do with my question. Naaman was also married with a mistress. Why wasn’t Naaman separated from people?

How Could Enoch And Elijah Go To Heaven?

Q. Thank you for all you do, I have learned so much from you. My question is this. How was it possible for Enoch and Elijah to go into the presence of God before their sin was paid for at the cross? I know there has to be an explanation, but I can’t figure this one out. Can you please help me to understand? Were they thrust forward in time somehow to the cross? That is the only thing my little mind can come up with. Thank You in advance for your help.
