Are Being Saved And Born Again The Same?

Published: October 14, 2019
Q

Is being saved and born again the same thing? I was saved when I was just a little girl but born again at 43. My husband was saved at 14 but I don’t believe he is born again. In your answer to the woman whose sister is gay and wants to know if she will be raptured you said if she is born again she will be raptured just like the rest of us who are born again. Also, you say once saved always saved. This is what I’ve come to know as a born again Christian. Are people who are saved but not born again going to be raptured? Or just born again Christians?


Is The Church Bound By Jewish Feasts?

Published: October 14, 2019
Q

Is the Church bound by Jewish Feast Days? When it comes to Prophecy, can the Rapture really be just any old day? Pentecost and Feast of Trumpets are the 2 most popular Feasts that most Experts debate over.

I love Feast Days because it allows believers a target to anticipate for the Rapture. Jesus says “I come at an hour you think not.” Some say that means Christ’s Appearing on a Sabbath which the Jews would never allow. Could it just mean He is coming just any old day out of the blue?

I never heard any church but the Catholic church use the word ‘sacraments’. Are there sacraments in the Protestant church too?


Was It His Choice To Die For Us?

Published: October 11, 2019
Q

I was recently reading about Jesus praying for God to “save him, deliver him” and almost begging. Yet in one of your articles, I recently read you mentioned that Jesus had scores of angels at his disposal and all he had to do was call on them and the whole thing would come to an end. In other words, he didn’t have to do this, but he chose to. Yet, while He was praying to be delivered it seemed like God didn’t answer. What was really going on?


Does The Lord Owe Us 10 Days?

Published: October 11, 2019
Q

Acts 1:3 clearly says Jesus appeared for 40 days after the resurrection. Recently we heard a teacher say it means Pentecost is the only unfulfilled feast & God somehow “owes” us 10 days ( as Pentecost means 50). Then he said that Jesus will appear for 10 days prior to the rapture to fulfill this feast. This we do not agree with, but where does the 50 in Pentecost come from if Jesus only appeared for 40 days?


How Can We Know That Prophecies Are Real?

Published: October 10, 2019
Q

How do I show somebody with a limited knowledge of the Bible that the prophecies it contains are real and are an important part of scripture (I understand it to comprise between 28-30% of scripture depending on who you ask), and that the whole point of God speaking through His prophets was to give us insight into events to come and not just confuse us?


Questions About Nations

Published: October 10, 2019
Q

In the Bible when it talks about all the nations of the earth will turn against Israel, is that the nations known at the time or literally every nation. If literal what does the Lord mean when He says He will separate the Sheep from the goats, which seems to be a reference to nations.


Supporting Conditional Security With Scripture?

Published: October 10, 2019
Q

I came across a website that opposes Eternal Security. The author has a lot to say and has scripture references to back up everything he says. I’d like to know what you think and maybe point out anything wrong with his opinion. I am really beginning to doubt the OSAS doctrine and honestly question why the Gospel is even called the Good news.


Inheriting The Earth

Published: October 9, 2019
Q

Re: Blessed are The Meek. Regarding “inheritance” as mentioned in Matt 5:5. you said, “if Jesus was given the Earth as His inheritance and if we have been made co-heirs with Him then we also will inherit the Earth, just like He said in Romans 8:17 and Galatians 4:7.” I agree on what the bible says, however, I have also read in your column that we being included in the family called “church” will populate the “New Jerusalem”. This is where my confusion arises, so my question is: Do you want us to believe that as we populate the new Jerusalem, we will also inherit the new earth? Please explain further.

I have a Holy Spirit Question. I’m newly saved and have fallen in love with the Word Of God. Can a saved person today know if they have received the gift of the Holy Spirit?
