Q. I have a question about Jude’s comments on Satan arguing with the archangel Michael over the body of Moses and the fact that Moses might be one of the witnesses in Revelation. If God buried Moses and kept the burial place a secret (maybe it was so the Israelites wouldn’t “worship” the burial site and make an idol of it) why would Satan be so concerned? Since it is appointed once for man to die, do you think God knowing His plans for Moses during the tribulation would take Moses to heaven like He did Enoch and Elijah?
Q. Your book, 7 Things You Have To Know To understand End Times Prophecy mentions the Coming Temple being located where a Tabernacle once stood in Shiloh but I don’t see how this can really take the place of the Temple Mount where both previous Temples stood. There is no doubt that God dwelt in King Solomon’s temple and while God is not confined to one place I really don’t see the any push for other sites being considered. While it is puzzling how the temple would escape destruction in the coming splitting of the Mt. of Olives, could the valley not extend all the way there in a straight line, but rather veer off on a tangent?
Q. Would you please help me to understand who the Bright Morning Star is? I thought it was a reference to Jesus, but others I’ve talked to believe it’s a reference to Satan.
Q. Isn’t it true that we were all born into original sin. There are no ifs ands or buts about it. When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden….their sin was passed along to us. So, there isn’t anyone who hasn’t sinned because we were born into the sins of our fathers.
Q. I noticed that Jesus said that the kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:20 and 21) but in 1 Corinthians 6:9 the Bible states that the unrighteous, fornicators, idolaters, etc. will not inherit the kingdom of God. Could the kingdom of God perhaps be the Holy Spirit? Please clarify, as I am stumped by this one.
Q. In an older post about the rapture you stated, “Only the Church is asked to believe solely by faith,” whereas OT believers and believers after the Rapture have had or will have evidence upon which to base their belief. All belief is a product of faith and many in the church have been the recipient or witness of miracles, had visions, or have had other evidence which brought them to faith. Would you care to comment on this?
Q. Genesis 6:2 says “The sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.” This may not be answerable but I would be interested in your thoughts on the following questions. I believe it’s rightly taught that these “sons of God” are angels. Their union with the daughters of men produced the Nephilim or giant offspring. It appears that God created only male angels as there are no indications of any female angels identified in scripture. What would be the logic of creating males and no females for one thing. and why would these angels even have the ability to produce sperm. I know God does nothing without a very good reason.
Q. I was saved in a church that taught the doctrine of Eternal Security. After a few years I moved to another city where I attended a church that seemed to be gospel centered but I discovered they are part of a denomination that believes we can lose our salvation. When I questioned this belief I was told that verses like John 3: 16, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 8:38-39 and others don’t mean our salvation is guaranteed. During the conversation the pastor also told me he was taught not to accept the prophecies of Revelation because they are only allegorical. When I asked about Daniel, Isaiah, and other prophesies concerning rapture, tribulation, and the millennium, he said these were also considered to be allegorical since they are to come in the future.
I stopped going there, but later I wondered if the saved people there are secure because they’re constantly being told they’re not. I also wondered how the pastors of that denomination can have a true relationship with Jesus Christ when they don’t accept Him and His Word totally as written?
Q. I’m confused . Did God create woman in Genesis 1:27 or was it in Genesis 2:18?
Q. There has long been the assertion that the church is the Bride. Could you please send me the specific bible reference? I have never been able to find this reference. The Church has a masculine gender and the Lamb’s wife is the New Jerusalem. How can ones own body be his bride, especially if the Church is masculine?
