Believing And Repenting

Published: July 8, 2021
Q

Regarding OSAS, I believe many people wonder. What about repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. I read “I repented before I knew the meaning of the word. I have repented far more since than I did then”. How do you compare “Believe on the Lord Jesus” and “repentance”? That’s not talked about much.

What does it mean to enter/inherit the kingdom of God? How does it differ from being saved and going to heaven?


Why Did God Create Us?

Q

If the Lord knew that we would fall from the beginning, why did he create us? Why let us go through all the pain and suffering? I mean, what would the earth have looked like if Adam and Eve never have sinned?

Re: According To The Lord’s Own Word. Isaiah 26:19-21, appears to be speaking to the dead only. Would these Isaiah passages coincide with Matthew 27:52-54?


Where’s My Blessed Assurance?

Published: July 7, 2021
Q

Although I grew up in the church and my family members were all Christians, I am totally unable to remember any time when I “went forward” to an altar to be “saved.” Despite praying all my life for strength of faith, for “blessed assurance,” I often ask myself whether I’m one of those vessels destined for destruction. Can you help?


Is Prophecy Unimportant?

Published: July 7, 2021
Q

The asst. Pastor in the church that I attend, knowing of my interest in prophecy, recently tried to debunk this interest by quoting Acts 1:6-8 and saying that there were more important things to understand than prophecy, and sermonized for an hour regarding these verses, implying that prophecy was unimportant. I would appreciate it if you would clarify this.


Commentary On Matt. 11:11-19

Published: July 6, 2021
Q

I just can’t believe how sparse dispensational commentary data is! Everywhere I look on-line I see replacement theology. I have a Bible Study I teach weekly and currently Matthew is our topic. Would you please provide your commentary regarding Matthew 11:11-19?


According To The Lord’s Own Word

Published: July 6, 2021
Q

I wonder about this wording in 1st Thes. 4:15. “For this I say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the the coming of the Lord … ” Is Paul referring here to teaching in the scriptures or to personal teaching which he received from the Lord?

Have Our Future Sins Already Been Forgiven?

Published: July 5, 2021
Q

I recently read an article that claimed the Bible offers no proof that our future sins are forgiven. It says this is just an assumption that Eternal Security advocates have made. It says if that was the case we wouldn’t need Jesus to be our advocate (lawyer), and that Romans 3:24-25 proves that only our past sins were forgiven. I’ve thought of Colossians 2:13-14 “He forgave us all our sins …” as a rebuttal. Are there others?
