Q. I just read a theory about the part of the Rapture that I have never heard before. I was wondering if you had heard about it and what your opinion is because I value your insight very much. I read on a site, that I usually trust, that meaning of “the dead will rise first” could possibly mean an earthly resurrection of them for the world to see? Could that be possible, that people would come back from heaven for a little while, before the rapture takes place? Thank you so much for all the questions you answer.
Q. At the rapture the Word says that the dead in Christ rise first. If that is correct what happens to us when we die? Where do we go? Where are we if we need to wait to rise with Christ at the rapture?
Q. I’m bothered by an article I read on the Internet about being “saved.” The writer quotes multiple scriptures, and states quite dogmatically that “one must believe in the resurrection…confess the resurrection…to be saved. He lists a series of common steps seekers are guided to take by various churches and evangelists such as, “Invite Jesus into your heart….” or “Accept Jesus as your personal savior …” or “Say the sinner’s prayer” as being inadequate. Do you agree?
Q. Am I right in thinking that although we will have new bodies and be like Jesus, there will be certain things we will not be able to do because He is God?
Q. In regards to Hebrews 11:13, whom does ‘all these’ refer to, for Enoch did not die, and which promises did they not receive? is this related to the promise in verse 39? Thanks for the great insights you share on this website.
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey (Zechariah 9:9).
Q. After Jesus rose from the dead, He stuck around the region for a full 40 days before His ascension to Heaven. From what facts I can glean, He only appeared to His disciples on three occasions in that 6 week time-frame. Where, and what was He doing in between visits?
Q. I have questions about Luke 24:13-15, the Road to Emmaus. 1. What was happening in Emmaus and why were these men heading there rather than any other place? 2. What was the significance of Jesus breaking the bread and its coincidence with the opening of the eyes of these disciples? 3. The scripture gave us the name of the second disciple to be Cleopas, I never heard about this name in the Bible before, was there a reason for the scripture to give it to us?
Q. The Bible tells us that Jesus appeared to many people after his resurrection. Thomas touched his body and Jesus ate fish with his followers. Obviously, it was a physical body. In what state did the Lord Jesus ascend to Heaven to be seated at the right hand of God the Father, physical or spiritual, and in what state is he in now as far as his body is concerned?
