Wearing JewelryPublished: December 28, 2022
I am sure you must know about some churches which do not permit wearing gold or ornaments. Can you please explain this belief to me as to where it came from and if its actually true or not…..Can you give me some scriptural references along with it too.
Thank you ever so much for all the help.
How Much Are We Supposed To Tithe?Published: December 26, 2022
Does the Bible offer any insight (other than mentioning 10% in the Old Testament) of how much we as Christians are to tithe, under the new covenant?
The Anointed CherubPublished: December 26, 2022
I am a little confused about this bit of the commentary on the fourth chapter of Revelation:
In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings. Day and night they never stop saying: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.” (Rev. 4:6-8) These are the four cherubim who guard the throne of God.
In the beginning there were five, but their leader betrayed both them and his trust, rebelling against God and causing the introduction of a second will in the universe. We call him by his primary activity, Satan, (it means accuser in Hebrew) but in Ezekiel 28:14 he’s called “the anointed cherub.”
Where did you get your information for this statement? I have looked in the word and I haven’t seen anything, I might be looking in the wrong place. Could you help?
Please Explain Genesis 3:15Published: December 26, 2022
Can you please explain the following verse regarding God’s prophesy about Eve in Genesis 3:15 to me please?
“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; he shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”
Hearing GodPublished: December 22, 2022
There are times I hear the Lords voice very clearly and others when I don’t hear it at all. Many times I’ll hear his voice over something small, but when I’m in a crunch and really need his guidance I get nothing. Whats the secret? To be honest I find it to be frustrating. The bible says to draw near to God and he will draw near to you, what exactly does that mean? Is it tied into hearing from the Lord? I guess the bottom line is the Lord sent the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us.. So I want to be led and guided.
The Christian LeftPublished: December 22, 2022
I came across the website of the Christian Left and their mission statement seems to be legitimate in accordance with what the Bible says about what a Christian should be. I am somewhat skeptical or suspicious though. I sense that they’re subtly inferring they are something that they are not. What do you think?
Please Explain ThisPublished: December 22, 2022
Unbelievers have said that our Lord was never seriously challenged in his earthly judgments. They were always in response to some form of entrapment by the Temple. For example, Scripture never reports that He was ever faced with the issue of healing an amputation. Although He could have, there is no hint that He was ever asked to. That seems a bit strange. What is the answer to unbelievers in that matter? What is the answer to believers?
Are These Stories True?Published: December 21, 2022
I’ve heard ministers of God claim that when they refused God’s call he sent tragedy into their lives even as far as killing their loved ones. They cite Jonah as an example of how far God can go to get someone to obey his call. Is this an accurate description of God? Also Eph. 4:11-13 says the gifts of the Spirit are given until we can all reach a unity in faith etc. Does the church have to get to this point before Christ can come for us in the rapture or is it as a result of the rapture that the church reaches this unity thus leading to an end of the gifts?
Come Back To Your First LovePublished: December 21, 2022
I have fallen into a grievous sin that I can’t seem to get away from. I am concerned because I am not very sensitive to it anymore even though I know it is sinful. Is there any way for me to regain that “innocence” and sensitivity to this sin that I once had when I first got saved? I long for it but am convinced that I will never have it again. I can’t even cry about it anymore and that makes me sad.
Teaching And PreachingPublished: December 21, 2022
Is there any difference between the teaching and the preaching of the word of God? If somebody is teaching the word of God is he is then also preaching to me?
