Submitting To Government Authorities

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?

Die Or Not Die? Which Is It?

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?

Every Eye Will See Him

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.

Millennial King David?

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.

Frustrated With God

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?
