The Parable Of The Wedding Banquet

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.

Rapture / Resurrection Bodies

Q.  I have a question regarding the rapture.  I get the impression from books, commentary I have read, and from bad movies I have seen that when the rapture occurs all those who are in Christ will disappear from the earth, however I don’t understand why God would have any use for our physical bodies.  It seems to me that when the rapture occurs God will receive our spirits and that the corpses of all those who believe will the left on earth.  Is my understanding incorrect?

More On Purifying The Church

Q.  I just read a teaching on the site of a friend’s son. He has a post tribulation view.  He states that “the church needs to go through the tribulation to be purified” and that pre-trib. believers will become disillusioned when we find that in truth we have to go through the tribulation.

Pre Or Post Doesn’t Bother Me

Q.   I’ve been watching a pastor on TV who is obviously post-trib and goes so far to claim we have been in the Tribulation for several years.  I have no quarrel with his teaching since I feel he is on target with his basic tenets of OSAS and it doesn’t bother me about “pre” or “post”.  However, I note in John 6:37-40 that Christ says He will raise us up on the last day.  Doesn’t that sound like “post-trib” to you?

The Spirit of Anti-Christ

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us. (1 John 2:18-19)

New Bodies For Old

Q.  Are bodies that are incinerated and/or destroyed via explosion the same bodies that Christ will make new during the rapture?  Or, do you think that Christ will make a completely new body for that person?

Why Doesn’t God Save America?

Q.  Genesis says that God told Abram He would forgive (preserve) Sodom if He could find just a few good men there.  In America today I see MANY men who are “good”.  I don’t mean sinless, of course.  I mean honorable men and women who do try to follow God’s rules, and be kind to their fellow men and women as part of that.  Why can’t He forgive us, then?  We have lots of people who have repented and want to follow God, including me.  Why doesn’t God save America, where there ARE a few good men?

United Or Divided?

Q.  Do you think that the church will ever be united and stop the “in-house” fighting? I know the end time church will be small and lack influence, but will doctrine become a non issue? Will we be about Jesus and Him only? I just don’t see how this thing plays out before the rapture.

When Do The Gifts Cease?

Q.  Some say spiritual gifts were only for the apostolic era.  Others say they continue in our time.  Does the Bible say when the laying on of hands and the expression of spiritual gifts will cease?
