I wish to thank you all involved with Grace Thru Faith. It is the best Bible-based website going. My question brings up something you’ve covered before. I think you said Satan will be exiled from heaven during the Trib. My grandson believes he was exiled from heaven at the time of Adam and Eve. Please clarify.
“A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah. And he left them, and departed.” Matthew 16:4. For as Jonah was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.” Luke 11:30.
Can you give me an explanation of what exactly is the Sign of Jonah?
I was reading the admonitions in the Bible to avoid believers who are sexually immoral, or who regularly eat or drink to excess, practice idolatry or greed, are swindlers, foul mouthed, gossipers, or verbally abusive (1 Cor 5:11, Ephe 4:29). In this way we help them see that such behavior is sin. I’m very confused by this passage.
In one of your articles you said you believe Satan’s fall occurred between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2, causing a judgment that ruined Earth, and the six day creation account really begins in Genesis 1:3. But in Exodus 20:11 God said He made the heavens and the Earth, the sea and all that’s in them in six days. It looks to me like this contradicts your opinion. Would you care to explain this?
My question this morning has to do with the parable in Matthew 20:1-16, the Laborers in the Vineyard. Mathew 20:16 says “So the last shall be first, and the first last.” Is this talking about the Gentiles being accepted first, then the Jews into the Kingdom of God?
I have a friend who believes that you should not speak with your mouth that you are sick or have a problem because that confirms it and it will be so. She says to pray for healing and start saying that you are well even though the symptoms are still there. She says that it may take a few days for the healing to take place but that God will heal you if you have faith and continue to claim the healing. I always think of God healing someone instantly and completely not over a period of time. I am wrong in my thinking? Does God sometimes heal gradually?
I was watching a bible teacher I respect the other day and he said something I had never heard before. He said spirits can influence a child in the womb. He said in John the Baptist’s case it was the Holy Spirit influence when John leaped in the womb but he also said evil spirits can influence a child in the womb as well. What do you think?
How do you think we’ll react to sin during the Millennium? We’ll be in our glorified bodies in the New Jerusalem, but we’ll have access to Earth. The Earth will have sinners, at least after the 1st generation has babies and they grow up. Some of them may be our loved ones. Do you think we’ll avoid sinners?
Recently I re-dedicated myself to the Lord. I grew so weary and heartbroken because of my addiction to a particular sin. One moment, I decided I had enough and got rid of every enabling piece of my addiction, and prayed and fasted for the Lord to deliver me from this addiction once and for all. Two days later, I found myself repeating the same dreaded sin. My question is, how long will it take for the Lord to deliver me? Will it take very long, or could it just miraculously happen overnight? Is there any way of telling at all?
I just have a quick question for you. When the subject of miracles is brought up when talking to atheists what is the best way to handle this? Are there any good points to state or any good studies to support miracles? What do you normally say?
