Q. I have a question about Our Lord when He was on earth. I have heard it said that His knowledge or power was limited on earth according to God the Father’s discretion. That is why Jesus frequently prayed to the Father or the scriptures say, “Not even the Son of Man knows” about a particular thing. Do you agree with this?
Q. A friend at work asked me who created God. In Genesis 1:1 it says, “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth.” I believe that with my whole mind, heart and soul, but it doesn’t answer the question of who created God, where did He come from, or how did He come into being?
Q. In several of your articles about eternal security you have said that even the faith to ask for salvation was a gift from Him. However, salvation through Jesus is also our choice and we are responsible for making that choice. We must ask for and accept it. But we can’t accept it until we first believe it and we can’t believe it until God gives us the faith to do so. Do you see where I’m coming from?
Q. My brother recommended your web site and I have found comfort in your responses. My question has to do with why does God require innocent blood to be shed? Thank you in advance for any thoughts you share on this topic.
Q. I was reading John 17 and two questions came to mind. Verses 1-5 describes the Father restoring Jesus’ glory. While Jesus was on this earth was his glory hid or taken away so man would not recognize him as God? And my other question is, do you think he was referred to as the “Son” before he came to earth as a man? Or do you believe he might have been known as another name in heaven before that? Thanks for all that you do.
Q. First of all, thank you for your wonderful website. I have a question in wondering if there is a deeper significance than I realize. When Jesus was accused, he remained silent. When he was crowned with the thorns, the same. When he was enduring the agony of the cross, the same. His first “complaint” is when he cries, and then with a loud voice, “My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me.”
Q. What was God doing before He created the earth?
Q. Many blessings to you for your ministry! My question is Jesus has a glorified body from the resurrection. We will all have these bodies at the Rapture at least the believers will. I was told that in heaven God will have no body. I would think he would have a Glorified body also but maybe not. I mean you have the Holy Trinity. I guess I have just always assumed the Father & Son would have glorified bodies and then you have the spirit part of the Triune as the unseen always working for the glory of God. What do you think?
Q. Thank you for all you do, I have learned so much from you. My question is this. How was it possible for Enoch and Elijah to go into the presence of God before their sin was paid for at the cross? I know there has to be an explanation, but I can’t figure this one out. Can you please help me to understand? Were they thrust forward in time somehow to the cross? That is the only thing my little mind can come up with. Thank You in advance for your help.
Q. The Bible say God hates Sin and even on the Cross, when his own Son died, he could not look at Sin and turned his head. In Job 2:1 it says “..and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord” In Revelation 12:10 it talks about the accuser of our brethren cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. Satan is the ultimate in sin itself, why/how can God tolerate Satan in his presence?
