Seeking A Ministry Opportunity

Published: April 15, 2022
Q

I Love your site, it’s been a real blessing in my walk with the Lord. Quick question, I feel the Lord has called me into the ministry but I don’t believe it’s into a normal pastor of a church kind of thing. Truth is, I don’t have the slightest idea what it would be otherwise. Just trying to knock on doors as the Spirit urges. Could you point me in any sort of direction where I could start to find out what other kinds of ministries are out there that the Lord might be calling me into?


The End Times Kingdom

Published: April 15, 2022
Q

In the King James Version, Daniel 2:43 reads, “And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” I have read about nephilim in the Bible and also on your website, and have a three fold question.

1.) When the fallen angels were chained until the time of the end. Was that all fallen angels or a chosen few and where do you get your information when you answer this question. 2.) Will their “mingling” come at the time of the tribulation or could it happen anytime. There is no mention of their offspring in the future so I am assuming they will be destroyed in the trib wrath? 3.) “but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” Does this mean their babies won’t live to be born or that it would be like a cat and dog mixing, it just won’t happen?


Did Jesus Appear In The Old Testament?

Published: April 15, 2022
Q

Hi! I have found your site to be a great tool in my bible study. I love the way you back up your articles by quoting the chapter and verses in the bible, allowing a person to look them up and see for ourselves! I have a question. Can you point out some of the Old Testament “appearances” of Jesus Christ? Or am I misunderstanding something?


Interracial Marriage

Q

Is interracial marriage a sin? There are several people at the place where I work that claim that the Bible says that it is a sin. But Moses, Joseph, and Ruth are examples of interracial marriages. The passages they site clearly to me are saying not to marry a non-believer.


Antiochus Or Anti-Christ?

Published: April 14, 2022
Q

I appreciate the time you take in answering questions. I imagine you get millions of them. I have a question concerning Daniel chapter 8. I heard many people use that as a reference to anti-Christ especially the part that says “by peace he will destroy many”. I see no reference to anti-Christ but only Antiochus in that chapter. Am I correct?


Reformed Theology

Published: April 14, 2022
Q

I was wondering about your take on Reformed Theology. I recently attended a conference hosted by a Reformed ministry. With the aberrant theologies infiltrating many of the evangelical churches today, I’m desperate to find sound doctrine being taught. The Reformers seem to hold true to the Scriptures, but they also have a few practices I’m not very familiar with.

Also, can you offer some encouragement regarding those of us who are not able to find a fellowship wherein sound, meaty doctrine is taught? Our family has visited a number of churches and have finally settled into one simply because we know that we’re commanded to fellowship with and serve the body, even though the teaching is rather “milky.”


Can Satan Still Do That?

Published: April 13, 2022
Q

Jack, I have been thinking about this question for awhile and I know you will be able to shed light on it. I do believe that Satan has as much access to this Earth as we do, and even more. Earth and its atmosphere is right now his domain (2 Cor. 4:4 and Eph. 2:2). 1 Peter tells us that the devil walks about seeking whom he can devour. I think this is a warning to us because Satan said he has freedom to go up and down on this earth. If Satan cast slurs upon Job to the presence of God, does he also do this to believers today, to God, for permission to test us or whatever? I know Scripture tells us that Job had a protective hedge around him so Satan had to have God’s permission to attack Job in the various ways he did. If God permitted Satan concerning Job, is there anything in scripture that tells us God permits Satan to attack Believers in a “like” manner?


Seed Of The Serpent

Published: April 13, 2022
Q

Thank you so much for your website which I have found very helpful. In Genesis 3:15, addressing the serpent, God says,”And I will put enmity between thy seed and her seed…” Wherever seed is used in the Bible referring to offspring it means physical offspring, actual children. Could the antichrist thus be Satan’s offspring? Could he be some sort of super Nephilim?


How Will He Do That?

Published: April 13, 2022
Q

I’ve been studying your revelation series as posted on your website. As you know, all the fish of the sea eventually end up being killed as a result of God’s wrath. When Jesus ultimately returns, per Zech. 14 and Ezek. 47, will there be a creative miracle concerning marine life, and I guess, all plant and animal life on earth?

Scientists say that all the varieties of life sprang from one species via selective breeding, etc. Will enough be spared to go this route, or will it be as in Gen. 1? I recognize that the trees that bear different fruit and leaves for healing will be like nothing we know today, and could possibly be a new creation of sorts. I love science and all, and I’m a little mystified by this.


Are Some Gifts Only For Men?

Published: April 12, 2022
Q

Thank you for your incredible website! I read it daily and enjoy it tremendously. My question concerns healing. I cannot recall or find a single instance in the Bible where a woman healed someone. Is this a gift that is reserved only for men? The only mention of spiritual gifts pertaining to women that I recall are the ability to prophesy. Can you shed some light on this for me? Considering how women were to conduct themselves during services by remaining silent, are the abilities bestowed by the Holy Spirit (with the exception of prophesy) only available to men?
