Q. In your commentary on Psalm 121 you discussed the benefit of confession. With the many ways human religion has clouded this issue, would you clarify the Biblical view of confession? Exactly what is required to restore my fellowship with the Lord? What about the sins of thought that we might forget about? Do we have to remember each sin in order to ask forgiveness? Or is asking to be forgiven from all sins sufficient? Thank you for your help in this matter!
Q. Can you explain why Jesus did not get baptized until approximately 30 years old?
Q. Does anyone know how long the battle will last? At what point of this battle does the anti-christ step in proclaiming peace the beginning, middle or end? Is this when God will supernaturally protect Israel? Also is this the battle that will provide the weapons that Israel will melt down and use for energy purposes for 7 years? If God supernaturally protects them at this battle shouldn’t their eyes be open to God then?
Q. How is a pastor ordained and who does it? Is it a must or just a man made step intended to make reality of what the person has decided in dedicating his life to Christ. Is it in the Bible ?
Q. I seem to remember you doing this before, but would you explain again what happens when people die? Exactly what is a resurrection and when does it happen?
Q. Is the Ark of the Covenant needed in order for the Jews to use the Temple in the 70th week of Daniel?
Q. In Phil. 2:17, Paul speaks of being poured out like a drink offering. What was the purpose of the drink offering? I have tried to understand the meanings of the different offerings, but this one eludes me.
Q. I happened to notice a Catholic commentary on the Scriptures, and I looked up John 3:16 to see what it had to say. What struck me was the book’s claim that the words for “eternal life” stresses the quality of life rather than the duration of life. Can you help us with what the Greek means, and how to respond to this interpretation?
Q. It never occurred to me that when the AC declares himself to be God in the Jewish temple, the Muslims would consider that blasphemy because they thought he was claiming to be Allah. I thought he would actually unite the Muslims because they thought he was the Imam. Whose armies will defeat the king of the north and the king of the south? I thought that would be Jesus returning with His saints.
Q. In regards to the “cloud of witnesses” (Heb 12:1), and your oft-repeated assertions (to which I also hold) that in eternity, we will be able to visit the history of the world to watch events unfold before us, do you think that there are in fact saints around each of us today, from the “future”, watching our lives as we live? Could not I, in eternity, go back to visit myself as I type this, and then in fact as I type, my future “self” would be here with me?
