Who Was Created First?Published: May 26, 2023
I have a question that I cannot seem to find an answer to and I hope you can help. Is there any scripture or inference in scripture that Lucifer may have been the first of the angelic beings created? Any light you can shed on this would be helpful.
Who Makes Us Sin?Published: May 26, 2023
In James (1:14) we read that “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed.” which implies that we are ostensibly our own worst enemy. Meaning that the reason we sin is solely because of our own sinful nature and not because of some outside influence (the devil). However, in 1 Peter (5:8) we read “your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” and again in 1 John (4:4) we read “greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” These two scriptures would imply that temptation by the devil does exist and that (at least some of) our sin IS due to the devil.
Stolen Birthright?Published: May 25, 2023

More Mountain Moving FaithPublished: May 25, 2023
I have recently been having a heated discussion re Mark 11.23 in regards to what exactly is the mountain that is mentioned in this passage? It is obviously not literal. Is this passage a teaching on positive confession doctrine or something else?
Saying Jesus Is LordPublished: May 25, 2023
I have a question about 1st Cor. 12:3. I have a lot of associates who believe that because certain pastors say that Jesus is Lord, that they must be genuine because this verse says only by His spirit are you able to say that. Yet it is clear that some of these pastors, namely prosperity types, have nothing to do with the Lord at all. Can you explain this please, and other verses like it, so people won’t be deceived?
The Destruction Of BabylonPublished: May 24, 2023
I am studying the book of Isaiah and am in Chapter 13. In the 20th verse Isaiah prophesied that Babylon will never be inhabited through all generations. This being the case, how can Mystery Babylon of Revelation 17 & 18 be the same city?
The Coat Of Many Colors?Published: May 24, 2023
We are going to be teaching Vacation Bible classes on Joseph’s “coat of many colors”. What were the colors and what does the color purple mean?
The Bible And TraditionPublished: May 24, 2023
Concerning Jewish traditions, how do we use them in interpreting scripture? How does one study and use these traditions and reach proper conclusions instead of bad ones?
To Whom Was He Speaking?Published: May 23, 2023
Re: Luke 21:34-36 “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” I know that those who are to “pray that they may be considered worthy” are not members of the Church. To whom did Jesus address this scripture?
The Fig Tree Of Matt. 24:32Published: May 23, 2023
Recently I heard a pastor argue that the fig tree in Matt. 24:32 does not represent Israel. He says Israel was described as an olive tree when the Church was grafted in. Is that true?
