Why Pray If God Already Knows The Outcome?

Q

My Husband and I were having the discussion on prayer. How do you explain to someone that even when God already knows the outcome of something, he still wants us to pray. Can you please explain this?


I’m Being Called To Fast

Q

I feel the Lord calling me to fast. I have prayed about it and am reading “God’s Chosen Fast.” Is it legitimate before God to fast and still drink vegetable juice and tea but have no solid foods?


Winning The Victory Crown

Q

Let me say first of all that I love your site – it is amazing and so informative. I was reading 1 Cor 9:24-27 and my question is what is the crown that we are obtaining here? (I know it is not salvation) Also, what is the meaning of the strict training?

Q

What part does repentance have in becoming saved? We often read we must just ask for forgiveness and believe in Jesus.


Will We Be Judged For Unconfessed Sins?

Published: October 18, 2021
Q

I recently heard a teacher state that Christians will be judged for their sins which have not been confessed. He said that if sins were confessed and forgiveness was asked, the sins would not have to be accounted for. However, he said that if we have unconfessed sin, we will be judged for it, not for salvation, but be judged for it nevertheless. Is this something that is Biblical? I can’t seem to find this teaching for judgment of Christians for their sins.


Unity In The Church?

Published: October 15, 2021
Q

Would you take time, possibly, to address a concern I have about unity of the Spirit – no differentiation between the Jew/Greek/bond/free/male/female – and the nationality issue? I’m speaking specifically about those who are Jewish Christians. Is it a natural response to being saved as a Jew to consider oneself different from Gentile Christians?


Saved By Their Works?

Q

Re: People who are here after the Rapture. How do they fight and prove themselves worthy, especially when the anti-Christ will fool most into believing he is Christ? I ask this because I feel many left behind will still have a chance of being saved by their works.


It Hinges Upon The Meaning Of One Little Word

Published: October 15, 2021
Q

I have a question about Revelation 3:10, I understand post trib rapture believers say that Revelation 3:10 implies protection while through but not removal from the tribulation. Pre-tribbers claim the word “from” in the Greek [ek] means “out of.” Therefore, we claim we will be physically kept “out of” the tribulation. Post-tribbers claim that the meaning of “ek” would more accurately be translated “out from among,” or “out of the midst of.” They say this is how it is defined in the Greek lexicons. In Rev. 3:10, the object is the tribulation. In order to come “out from among” the tribulation you must first be IN the tribulation.


It’s What We Believe, Not How We Behave

Q

I have a question on Romans. What does Paul really mean in Romans 7:25 where he said that “with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin”. Does this mean that even though he can’t outwardly keep the law that pleases God as long as he has the will of wanting to do what is right, it is already a mode of serving the law of God?


Locating The Garden Of Eden

Published: October 14, 2021
Q

I have a question about the Garden of Eden. I heard a well known bible teacher say that Jerusalem could be the same place where God established Eden. He made some interesting parallels like In Genesis 2:8 where it states that God planted a garden toward the east of Eden. Directly east of the Temple mount is the Garden of Gethsemane and the Mount of olives. What are your thoughts on if Jerusalem is Eden?
