Q. When Jesus was born he became a human. When he died did he remain a man or is he now a spiritual being like God. I need scripture to show my Sunday School teacher.
Q. For years as a Christian I have thought that if we believe in Christ we would go to heaven when we die. I have searched the Bible but cannot find any reference to this. In Revelation it talks of the dead being raised when Christ returns. My question is, do we go to heaven when we die or do we stay in limbo waiting for the return of Christ, which we know not when He will return.
Q. My question comes from a statement you made on one of your mp3’s. You stated that Jesus gave up some of his inheritance so we could share in it. By doing this is He forever in a weakened state because He is still in the form of a man? Does that mean He doesn’t have some of the abilities as God that He once had?
Q. Re: Rev. 20:1-6. Who are the ones who received authority to judge in Rev. 20:4? And who are the saints who will be priests of God and will rule with Him for the millennium in Rev. 20:6? Are these saints some members from the raptured Church, like pastors of today? If so, won’t the Church will be on earth during the millennium?
Q. Matthew 24:31 says, “And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” This verse states that the “elect” will be gathered from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other – heaven, not earth. Is this proof we are already in heaven before the tribulation? That we have been raptured?
Q. I’m hoping for a bit of clarification. Rev 20:5 states that the Tribulation Saints are part of the first resurrection, occurring after the second coming. Yet, if the dead in Christ are resurrected at the Rapture (1 Thes. 4:16), how is this not the first resurrection as it will occur at least 7 years earlier?
Q. I just read your August 10th answer about cremation which confirmed what I always thought about cremation being okay, but wanted to know what your beliefs were on organ donation. I would be an organ donor if I could get over the feeling that when the Lord resurrects our bodies, I will have given away part of mine. I know this must sound ridiculous, but was wondering what your studies have led you to believe. I would greatly appreciate your thoughts.
Q. As the Savior of the world, the Word became flesh. He chose to become human enough that He was capable of bleeding to death for us. He is the first fruits of the resurrection and received a new body similar to what I think we will receive. Capable of walking through walls, go to places by thought, but having physical texture that the disciples were able to touch and He even ate with them. My question is, do you think that part of His sacrifice in stepping down into creation was to limit Himself to having a ‘resurrected body’ as an eternal reminder of what He did for us?
Q. Re: Matt. 27:52-53. Who were the many saints who came out of their graves? I thought all that were saved before the cross were in Abraham’s bosom. It appears they received their body (was it the old or new) because they appeared unto many. Is there any indication that they ascended to heaven with Jesus, or did they die again? Was this told to give us a glimpse of the rapture?
Q. I once heard through a well known Pastor that we are not to cremate our bodies when we die and I have never found anything in the Bible to confirm that. Could you please share any scriptures to support that or not.
