Q. I have been taught that when we confess our sins and ask forgiveness of God, that through His sacrifice on Calvary’s Cross, our sins are washed away, and you accept Him as your own personal Savior you are His forever. We have been doing a Bible study on Revelation we’ve learned that when Christ comes back he will open the book of life and judge us. If, as it says in His Word, His blood cleansed me why will I be judged? This question bothers me and I would appreciate your input.
Q. Thank you for your insight and study and the willingness to share your time with us. I have a concern/question: I have read your studies on the Rapture and how to be ready when He comes. I believe what you present, but struggle with the teaching of others that say you have to have faith to be taken in the Rapture, just as you have to have faith to be saved, healed, etc. How do I reconcile the two points of view?
Q. In the July 18 th Q&A titled ‘Won’t All Christians Be Gone’ you wrote in paragraph two…and I paraphrase: ‘seeing the Church gone will motivate those who rejected (did not accept after hearing) would be motivated by the Rapture’ to believe. How do you reconcile this with 2 Thessalonians 2:5-12?
Q. The day’s current world events leave me wondering if God might leave some believers behind during the rapture to evangelize or minister to those who are suffering. Despite my attempt to share the gospel with unbelieving friends and family, I hate to think of leaving them behind to suffer during the imminent tribulation. What are your thoughts about this?
Q. I heard a prominent bible prophecy teacher say that people who believed but did not “understand” the salvation message would miss the rapture and be saved during the Tribulation. He went on to say that those who did not believe and understand would have a deluding force sent from God so they would not believe. If I understand the whole concept of being saved, it is the Holy Spirit that draws you to a spiritural understanding when you hear and believe. Also, do any gentiles get saved during the Tribulation?
Q. I have a question concerning the Jewish Feast Tu B’ Av. What do you know about this feast day? Do you know the date? With what we are seeing what is going on in Israel and the world I believe we are pretty close to going home. I am an full agreement with you on Rom11:25 and the fulfillment of the Gentiles. I am pondering a feast day as event driven just because we know our Heavenly Father works in a direct order. I would love your thoughts on this especially with shortness of time we are in.
Q. Regarding Rev 20:1-3 The Millenial Reign, I don’t understand something. Where are we, who have been faithful to Jesus all of our lives during this time period? I gave my life to Christ and am a firm believer. If Satan is released during the 1000 years, and there’s enough sin left in the heart of man, do I have to fight this battle with myself all over again? OR, do we who have accepted Jesus sacrifice get to rule with Him and be protected from Satan’s lies during the millennium? Please clarify for me.
Q. Thinking of how the news media is pushing the idea for at least the last 20 years of a World Wide Pandemic, and that there are many movies and a new hit TV show on the subject, I have been thinking that the public is primed and ready for this to happen. Why would we take our bodies to meet Jesus and leave just our clothes? I am convinced that will not happen. I think the strong delusion will be the millions of raptured saints bodies passed off as the coming worldwide pandemic. Someone will have to step up to calm those left behind and clean up the mess. Am I off base, and if not, why is everyone saying that only empty clothing will be left? I have never heard anyone say millions of bodies will be everywhere and it will be an international disaster. Is there anyone out there who thinks this way, besides me?
Q. I was just reading one of your answers where the writer was concerned about class differences in heaven based on our works for the Kingdom after we are saved. It brought to mind the parable Jesus taught about the workers who were hired late in the afternoon receiving the same wage as those who went to work early in the morning. The early birds complained, but the owner of the field said it was his field and his money, and he could pay whatever he wished to whomever he wished. It seems to me that this teaches that the Blessed will not make individual comparisons regarding who gets the most rewards in the Kingdom or Eternity. What do you think?
Q. Since nobody knows the day or hour, some persons who have accepted the Lord and repented of their sin, could be committing adultery, lying, gossiping, stealing, hating, cursing, having an abortion, murdering, having homosexual sex, and in the twinkling of an eye, they are given a glorified body and are meeting the Lord in the air and clouds. Is this right?
