Q. When referring to Romans 13, which talks about submitting to governing authorities, does that mean the government has the right to control people’s lives? I know there are countries like China and North Korea that often seem to do that. This has happened throughout the Roman Empire in medieval times. When properly understood how authority works, how do we apply it to Biblical scripture?
Q. My friend has a new pastor who commented that currently there is no one (believer/unbeliever) in Heaven or Hell. He also believes that there are 3 raptures. I know what I believe, but how would you respond?
Q. In John 11:26 Jesus said “And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die”. But in 1 Thes. 4:16 Paul said at the rapture the dead in Christ will rise first. This seems like a contradiction to me. Do we die or not die?
Q. I firmly hold and believe that pre-trib is both correct and the only accurate biblical position for the rapture. However, I have a hard time coming to terms with believers after the rapture experiencing God’s wrath along with the world. I know they are tribulation saints but am I missing something?
Q. In Rev 1:7 it reads, “Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, and they also who pierced Him.” But in Rev 20:11-15 it reads that the unsaved won’t be raised until the end of the Millennium. Assuming that, “…they also who pierced Him,” were unsaved Jews (or Gentiles) at the time of the crucifixion, then how can they see Him when He comes in the clouds at the 2nd coming?
Q. I understand that the Bride of Christ is referred to as Kings and Priests, my question is does that apply to women? It appears to me that that title would apply to men only as the Bible is gender specific. What role do you think women in the Bride of Christ will have? Will they rule also as “Kings” and “Priests?”
Q. I have seen several Bible verses and also questions answered here that the Lord will reign from Jerusalem in the millennium or that woman and man will sit in the streets of Jerusalem being old in age. I always believed that an earthquake will destroy the temple and its city. Which is correct?
Q. I was just wondering where in the Bible it talks about King David ruling during the Millennium. You mentioned it in another study and that was the first I’d ever heard of it. Also why would the Third Temple be located in Shiloh? Isn’t Jerusalem God’s capitol on Earth? Thanks in advance and God Bless.
Q. I am so frustrated with God, I have been praying for years now, my family and friends too, to save my marriage. Last night I was talking to my husband again, meanwhile I am praying for God to intervene. He just will not. Nothing. My husband is moving out, he is done, and I stand here helpless. Where is God? He is able to move mountains, he can do anything he wants, and if he loves me, why does he not answer my prayers. I know it is his will we don’t divorce so why is he not stopping this. Why is he not helping me?
