You have said that in fulfilling His promise to meet all our needs (Matt. 6:31-33), God will usually provide opportunities for us to meet them through the work we do, instead of meeting them directly. But what can we expect concerning this work? Should it be evident that He provides us a job that is both fulfilling and doesn’t hinder our relationship with Him? When I say fulfilling work I mean a job that isn’t emotionally or other ways draining, that isn’t stressful and isn’t modern time slave work. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to work but perilous times or not I don’t want to live like a stress filled modern time slave.
What is your view or opinion on whether we should or shouldn’t go to church? My sister, who by the way is the one who told me about your site, said she read on the site that you said believers don’t have to go to church. Does the Bible speak to this specifically? I know our salvation doesn’t depend on it but shouldn’t we be a part of a body of believers?
My day is incomplete without paying a visit in your site. Thank you very much for the insight that you give us regarding the word of God. I have a friend who was born after her mother was raped. She doesn’t know her father. I strongly believe that God is all knowing and people come from God and he even knew how we would be born. But I want to know in the case of this friend of mine if was it God’s plan that she was born out of rape? If not, then why did God allow her to be born in such a situation?
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
In Matt. 6:31-33 Jesus said if we seek His kingdom and His righteousness, God will supply all our needs . Here’s a beautiful story from the Old Testament to show this wasn’t a new idea when Jesus spoke it, but was documented in their history.
I married a man in our church a year ago. We have been in so much strife here lately that I have been considering leaving him. I just don’t want to be in strife and miss the Rapture. If I were in strife with my spouse could this cause me to miss the Rapture?
The Pastor on Sunday was teaching on Discipleship and how we can be better disciples for Christ, He was drawing from (an apparently popular book) I have never read or even heard of. The Pastor said that we needed to Love God with all of our Hearts, Minds and Souls, and that this is a commandment, which I agreed with. He went on to say in order to show God that we loved him we needed to follow and obey all of Jesus’ Commandments in the New Testament and he listed about 44 of them. He then said that if we do not follow these then we don’t love God and we aren’t saved. He even said that our salvation is based on a lot more than a little prayer we said when we accepted Christ.
I’ve had a great problem with lusting after women and really being a womanizer. I was unfaithful to my wife and our marriage was headed for divorce. At that time I got on my knees and cried out for mercy from God. He answered swiftly and restored my marriage (absolute miracle) and gave me another chance. I took a step in faith and confessed to my wife what I had been doing and she forgave me. But recently I’ve been fighting off thoughts that I have not been forgiven because I haven’t told my wife every single detail of what I’ve done. Your advice would be appreciated.
Introduction: Part 1 of the “7 Things” series.
7 of the the most important prophecies in all of scripture will be fulfilled between now and the beginning of eternity. Knowing the circumstances surrounding each one is critical to avoid being deceived.
Below the audio, we’ve also included the written transcript of this study.
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the LORD is God. It is He who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;
The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake. Great is the LORD in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations. Let them praise your great and awesome name— he is holy. The King is mighty, he loves justice— you have established equity;
I believe in God and I consider myself a Christian. Jesus is in my heart and I pray for forgiveness every night. But in my past I’ve done some terrible things. Am I forgiven enough to go in the rapture? If so will my toddler come with me? And if she does, will we be in heaven together with her as my child? I have read that our children won’t be our children and we won’t know them anymore. That makes me very sad, is that true?
Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” This verse is used to prove that one must be born again to see the Kingdom. But does it not also mean that one must be born the first time? If this is correct, doesn’t it mean that aborted babies are not in heaven?
I have been reading your series on a study of Revelation. In your commentary on chapter 5, you state “God’s law requires that a next of kin redeem that which a family member has lost.” Where in scripture is this stated as God’s law? I ask because what you have presented fills many gaps for me. I just want to be able to back that up with scripture since it is the foundation of the point you present.
Recently, I feel like I’ve lost my sense of purpose. Since I believe the Lord’s return is right around the corner, maintaining my current schedule seems pointless to me. I spend most of my time either working or studying – and it kills me to know that I could be spending this time with my family. I’ve talked to my wife about this, and she believes that I should continue doing what I have been doing, in case the end is not as close as I think. What’s your opinion?
John 5:17-18, says, “In His defense (for healing on the Sabbath) Jesus said to them, ‘My Father is always at His work to this very day, and I too am working.’ At this point they tried to kill Him because He made Himself as high as God by calling God His own Father.”
When we pray, Jesus tells us to say “Our Father Who art in heaven” When we call God our Father, are we also making ourselves as high as God? Would you please explain it to me?
Regarding Rev. 3:11: “Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” My question is which crown is this referring to? And what can be done to take the crown away?
Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. The LORD has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations. He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to the house of Israel;
In about 1980 everything seemed to be falling apart around me. Sitting alone in my living room, I prayed a silent prayer to God/Jesus for salvation and guidance. Do you think God recognizes and accepts silent prayer for his saving grace, or at any other time when one prays?
Do you see any connection between the Oil and the Wine that the Good Samaritan poured into the injured man’s wounds, compared to the command in Revelation 6 during famine ” See thou hurt not the Oil and the Wine ” ? One commentator said that the latter passage referred to Christians being protected during the tribulation, but that doesn’t square with the Antichrist being given power to overcome the Trib Saints. What say you ?
I remember where after Jesus was resurrected He ate fish with his new body and He still had fingers and toes and so on.My point is,He did not change into some type of ooze or blob etc.My 1st Question is,when we get to heaven,if I loved Basketball here,will I still be able to love it there and maybe play it? 2nd,Is it possible that if I played a Sport in Heaven my body may not get tired as easily as the one does here?Maybe extended amounts of energy because there is no sin nature that is killing our body throughout the day?After all,are not the things we see here copies of the REAL things in Heaven.Thanks for this Wonderful website!
The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice. Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side. His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles.
4 yrs ago I lost my wife. We served and loved the Lord for many years together. I led her to Him and know with all my heart she was saved and now is with Him. But since this happened I have slid so far from God. I have withdrawn from any organized church teachings, for I was led to believe that with prayer and faith my wife wouldn’t die. I was told that just by speaking it in faith and standing on his word she would be healed. I did all that and when my wife was called home I lost my faith in Him. Now I have this deep yearning to get back. But how do I ask Him to forgive me for the bitterness I have had and really expect to be forgiven?
Through my studies in soteriology I have reached some confusion regarding the atonement of Christ. When the Bible says to believe in Christ, does that include understanding/believing the significance of Jesus’ blood; what about the exact happenings of Jesus sacrifice onward, like if it was on a cross, and if He went to heaven to sprinkle blood on the mercy seat in Heaven, etc. It seems like there are so many add-ons and technicalities to ‘believe in Jesus.’ The way to salvation is something that we just can’t afford to get wrong- and yet, it seems so easy to make some kind of mistake that could end up sending one to Hell.
What was the reason for having clean and unclean animals ie. Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14:3-21? Has this been done away with or is it still in force? And was it just for religious reasons or were there health implications/benefits also?
