Q. I’ve accepted Christ as my savior and am a born again believer. Raised Baptist, I am now married to a Catholic man. We’ve talked much about salvation but his viewpoint is different from mine although he says he’s accepted the Lord as his savior. I understand that only God knows our hearts – but do the “words” (salvation, accept the Lord, etc.) used by different faiths mean the same thing?
Q. 1 Corinthians 12:3 says that a man cannot call Jesus Lord except by the Spirit of God, yet we see in the Gospels that many at the Great White Throne judgment will call Him Lord, Lord. Even though I fail Him many times, I also call Him Lord and have believed on Him with all my heart for salvation. Can you elaborate on those who call Him Lord, Lord, yet ended up lost?
Q. I have been studying the book of Daniel and came across a verse that has me puzzled. I am of the belief that Christian believers will be raptured before the tribulation (pre-trib) starts but this particular statement has me baffled. In the second half of Daniel 7:25 it says: “The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times, and half a time.” Aren’t we (Christian believers) the saints?
If this is so, this sentence sounds like it means we are handed over to satan during the tribulation? Am I missing or misinterpreting something here? Thank you so much for opening yourself up to Gods wisdom and insight.
Q. May God continue to bless you and your ministry. A preacher on TV teaches that the Nation of Israel has salvation under the Old Covenant. That they don’t need to accept Jesus Christ or the New Covenant for entrance into God’s Kingdom. Is this a Biblical teaching? Or is it false and therefore makes him a false teacher?
Q. I thank you for your ministry to all of us . May the Lord continue to bless you and your ministry. In regard to the question How Do I Know I’m Saved, I believe that there should be a change in a persons heart about sin in their life and I believe that we are more aware and convicted of our sin when we still stumble. Would you agree or not?
Q. What do you think Jesus means in Matthew 6:14-15, when He says that if you will not forgive your brother then neither will your sins be forgiven?
Q. I want to know if I am mocking God when I keep saying the salvation prayer because I want to make sure I am saved. He said if you don’t believe you’re saved the first time you pray for salvation you are mocking him. Is that true? Please let me know and how do you know you are truly saved?
Q. I have been in this walk 20 years and am not as close to God as I used to be. I do not even do any of the disciplines like I used to. I talked to others and they have the same problem. Is this falling away? Is this normal after a long walk with God? I am really upset. I try to get back where I was but only can do so much. I feel pooped out. I love God and it grieves me about my walk.
Q. Would you please explain what Jesus was referring to as “the end of the age” in this parable? Is it the end of this age, which will cease at the end of the Tribulation, and then goes right in to the 1000 year reign of Christ? Or is it referring to the end of the 1000 years just before going into eternity? Verse 43 says “Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father..” Is this referring to the Millennium or eternity?
Q. What is the meaning of Deuteronomy 11:18-20? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
