Confused About Voting

Published: September 22, 2020
Q

**Note: Jack wrote this many elections ago. But it’s timeless advice. ♥ Samantha

I’ve read some articles on Christian websites saying Christians should not vote at all this time because neither candidate truly represents our values. But others are just as adamant in saying we should vote for the candidate who is most representative of our values. It’s so confusing. What do you think?


Can The Seal Be Broken?

Published: September 22, 2020
Q

I have some friends who believe in conditional salvation. I firmly believe it’s impossible for us not to sin and therefore our salvation has to be unconditional. One of my friends sent me to a website that supports conditional salvation. Most of its claims are easily refuted, but there is one article regarding the seal of the Holy Spirit that I’m having trouble with. It said the seal can be broken. Can you please help me with this?

Worship Him With All Your Heart

Q

My question concerns worshiping God. I understand that the angels worship and adore God above anything else they do and I believe we will do the same when we are with Him and I look forward to that time with all my being. But now I feel inadequate to give Him the worship He deserves. Do you have some teachings on worship that would teach me how to worship God with all my heart?


Longing For The Lord’s Return

Published: September 21, 2020
Q

I was just wondering if you could give me some advice about longing for Christ’s return. If I were to truly tell you how I feel, I would say that I just don’t feel any genuine longing for the return of Christ. I’m not saying I don’t want it to happen, it would be the best thing in the world, I just don’t have a general sense of everyday longing for His return and awaiting my King. Would you mind giving me advice on how to long for His return?

Taking Thoughts Captive

Published: September 18, 2020
Q

2 Cor. 10:3-5 tells us to demolish the enemy’s arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and to take take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ.

My question is , How do we take our thoughts captive in Christ? Are there words that must be said? Do we invoke Jesus’ name? Do we just try to think of something else? Do we pray to have Satan bound in Jesus’ name so he cannot affect us? How do we know If the thoughts are from an evil entity or just our sin nature? What is the correct way to deal with thoughts that cross our mind and are not holy and serving of God


Judges, Kings, and Priests

Q

Re: Rev. 20:1-6. Who are the ones who received authority to judge in Rev. 20:4? And who are the saints who will be priests of God and will rule with Him for the millennium in Rev. 20:6? Are these saints some members from the raptured Church, like pastors of today? If so, won’t the Church will be on earth during the millennium?


Can We Walk Away?

Published: September 17, 2020
Q

I think a Christian can choose to walk away from God. God would never walk away from us, but can’t we choose to walk away from Him. I don’t think we give up free will once we are born again, do you ?
