Elijah, Jew Or Gentile?

Q. Each time that I visit your site, I am blessed! Recently, I heard a minister on TV say that the prophet Elijah, mentioned in the books of 1st & 2nd Kings, was not Jewish. I had assumed that all of the old testament prophets were Israelites. Your thoughts on this.

All In The Family

Q. I sort of have an ongoing debate with a co-worker regarding the wives of Seth and Cain (Adam and Eve’s sons). My co-worker asked me where did they come from as there is no clear explanation in Genesis and they just sort of appear. I say that they have to be descendants of Adam and Eve who are the mother and father of mankind. My co-worker feels that this would be incest and can’t be. Can you clarify this for us?

The Plagues Of Egypt And The Tribulation

Q. If the plagues of Egypt are a type of Tribulation and God doesn’t spare the Isrealites until the 5th plague(in fact their lives get much worse as they begin), is this symbolic of a mid trib rapture? I believe in the pre-trib, but haven’t been able to come up with an answer to the above with any satisfaction.

Death In The Millennium?

Q. Would you please clarify this  verse for us?

“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.

It sounds like there will be death in the millennium.  Am I understanding that verse correctly?  I am also trying to understand in the millennium  - Rev 22:2 – that the leaves will heal the nations – why do the nations need to be healed?

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)

In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of the survivors in Israel.(Isaiah 4:2)

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

“Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:20-21.)
