Q. After Jesus died, did he descend into Hades to set the captives free? If so, who were the captives?
Q. I have a question about your recent post entitled “They Will Not Taste Death” in which you said, “There they were momentarily transported to the time of the 2nd Coming where they saw Moses and Elijah talking with the Lord in His glory.” I am familiar with the Transfiguration of Jesus, but had never heard before that what the disciples were seeing was the time of the Second Coming. Where does it say in scripture specifically that they were present at the Second Coming?
Q. Here is a question which has puzzled me for a rather long time. If I understand correctly, all of the Old Testament and New Testament Saints who have passed away are in Paradise right now. Do they already have glorified bodies? If they already have glorified bodies, then what bodies will rise from the graves during the Rapture?
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?
