Q. It seems like the weather is getting more and more extreme. Floods, violent wind, hurricanes, drought, fires, major earthquakes. Do you believe this is a sign of the times?
Q. Thank you for the study on Revelation-my question is about the New Jerusalem–I was always taught that in Heaven we in our perfected bodies would have no need for food or drink or anything else we have here as humans because we died and gained eternity with Him. But in your study it looks as though we will eat etc. because those on “earth” will bring it to us–help I am so confused!
Q. Re: John 11:17-44. Since the narrative doesn’t state that Jesus asked Martha to find Mary for Him, did Martha simply lie to her sister Mary in this instance, or do you find evidence anywhere that Jesus did ask for Mary’s presence? If Martha lied to Mary, what was her reason or excuse?
Q. I have a friend who thinks that he has out-sinned God’s Grace because he no longer feels or hears the Spirit anymore. He has had a long walk with the Lord. Is there any way to explain what has happened to him?
Q. Recently I had a conversation with another Christian friend re dream catchers. Several years ago I worked on a Navajo Indian Reservation for one summer. During that time I bought many souvenirs. I found a beautiful dream catcher I liked so I bought it. It ended up hanging off my mantle in my downstairs family room. I really never gave it a lot of thought. My friend feels it’s something evil, like an idol I suppose. I never viewed it as such and certainly would never hang it over my bed hoping to filter out bad dreams. Did I use poor judgment in bringing it home?
Q. Our pastor is vacationing, so an elder was preaching on the above scripture and giving it as evidence of the “New Israel”. I was so upset I left and told him quietly that it was a false liberal message. Was I wrong to leave? I couldn’t handle hearing this.
Q. Could you explain the three hundred ninety days and forty days prophecy in Ezekiel 4:6. Does this apply to the regathering of Israel or the re-unification of Jerusalem or both?
Q. Do Angels touch and feel your body for energy?
Q. What is the difference between believing and accepting? I’ve always thought I am saved because I believe Jesus died for my sins. But I hear others say they’re saved because they’ve accepted Jesus as their Savior. Is there a difference?
Q. The following was posted on a message board I go to:
“I have been a Christian all my life and never considered giving up Christianity until now. My reason is found in the Bible itself. As much as I want to continue believing that Christianity is true, I feel that there is no getting around this passage.
“For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and will then repay every man according to his deeds. Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.”
Would you have a specific response to this? Evidently the person has a problem that Jesus had not returned during the lifetimes of those He was speaking to. They don’t buy the transfiguration theory.
