Q. I have some questions regarding the borders for Israel. I have looked for answers but haven’t come up with anything I feel real confident about as far as accuracy. Has Israel ever inhabited all the land that the LORD promised Abraham? Are they doing so now (minus the West Bank and Gaza of course)? If the war prophesied by Psalm 83 comes to pass in the manner we expect it to and Israel gains additional territory from what it has now would they then be in full possession of the LORD’s Promised Land? Assuming that they are not in full possession now: How would their gaining full possession affect End Times time tables?
Q. I’m not a new Christian and I know a lot about the Bible, but I have never in my life heard the interpretation that Hosea 6:2 means the Church Age will last 2000 years and then the Lord will return to establish His Kingdom. . The one I’ve heard is that Hosea 6:2 will be fulfilled during the Tribulation in a literal three days and on the third one Christ will return. Where does this other idea come from?
Q. Jesus clearly stated to those around him at the time, that some of those standing there with him, would not see death before he returned. This is unequivocally clear. If you believe that he is yet to return, and he doesn’t, that makes him a false prophet.
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (Matt. 19:28)
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new.” Then He said, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.” (Rev. 21:5-6)
Q. Does Satan see the future as God does and if so is he just trying to change it?
Q. Is 1 Corinthians 12:3 to be taken literally that no one can say Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit?
Q. I am confused. Most bible commentaries I have read suggest that the foolish virgins represent Christians who have become ‘backslidden’ and do not seek a true relationship with Our Lord or those who have been ‘given over to their sin’ (1 Cor 5:5), but haven’t yet cried out to God for the mercy of His Grace. I would be grateful for your comments.
Q. Could you explain Isaiah 66:17. Is this saying that when Jesus returns all those eating pigs and rats and other abominable things will be condemned?
Q. Do you have a scripture that says Christ’s second coming is a set time? What do you think about a set time?
Q. In reference to your last article on the Ascension, it seems like most Bible teachers who teach end time eschatology never refer to Hosea 6:2. It surely must have some significance to the timing of the second coming, does it not?
