Q. I would like to get your comment on 1 Samuel 6:19-20, why did the Lord smite all those people for looking into the Ark? And what lesson can we garner from these verses, like is there a type of grace or the forthcoming of grace (I hope I am making sense)?
When our Lord was resurrected, He left His grave clothes behind. I know a lady who is horrified to think she may go naked up into the air in the rapture, before “God and everybody.”
I have believed on Jesus the Christ for many, many years. I lean toward living under repentance of sins (probably from all the ell-fire-and-brimstone preaching from my youth), but I also am pulled towards realizing just how much the Father loves and adores me as His child. How should a Believer hold these two practices in tension?
I was reading the last few chapters of Ezekiel and noticed that in the reign with Christ, they will keep temple sacrifice. I thought that Jesus was the final sacrifice? My husband said that some people think it is in remembrance of what Christ did, but that doesn’t make sense to me. Why wouldn’t we do that now?
I was listening to a Christian radio show and a certain man called up asking some questions
regarding this and one of the passages brought up was Psalm 5:5 “The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong”.
Q. The mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. (Isaiah 55:12)
Is this the new Jerusalem? When we are completely free from sin, and put on Christ completely and be like Him as He is, will we have power and closeness to the creation where we hear mountains/hills sing and trees clap their hands? To think all material things that bring joy but not everlasting is to be replaced with creation makes my heart leap. Surely to hear a mountain speak must be simple divine.
A. Isaiah 55:12-13 speaks of Israel’s Kingdom age on Earth as God’s people finally return to their land in peace. After the curse is lifted and peace is restored to the creation, I imagine that we’ll see all kinds of grand and glorious changes.
Q. Places like Psalm 25:12 & 14 speak of the fear of the Lord. Is it by fear then that we ultimately look toward Him for salvation?
What happened to Jesus after he died? Because I remember he had told the thief on the cross that he would be with Him in paradise.
Jesus is God in the flesh, but what was he like physically, if thats the right word to use, before the incarnation?
A friend said that our walk isn’t really a straight path, but more of a giant circle. We’re traveling in that circle in any direction and no matter what, we are still in Gods will. No matter what path we chose, even if it’s a horrible one, God will still have us end in the end where he intended us to be. Is this true?
