Q. I’ve heard it taught before, that at Judgment, the Jewish people will have a second chance to receive Christ as savior and Lord since they are the chosen people of God, and because the veil will have been lifted and the scales will have been removed from their eyes at the end so they can see the truth of Jesus and He being the true son of the most high God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Is this true ? If so, which scripture gives such reference so I can make note of this and share with my other brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ, Jew and gentile.
Q. If a person cannot live carefree in sin and yet still sins, can this internal battle be looked to as a “proof” of sorts that he or she has the Holy Spirit within and is saved?
Q. I have a family member who asks “why would God choose us to ‘Escape’ the 7 year Tribulation period, when all thru the centuries, there have been Christians who have suffered and died for their Faith?” I have tried explains to her about the difference in sufferings/tribulation in general and the 7 year Tribulation/Great Tribulation, which is God’s wrath upon unbelievers and workers of evil and iniquity! What else can I tell her that might help her in accepting a Pre-Trib Rapture?
Q. After seeing a recent posting on Q&A, I read 2 Tim 2 again and it got me thinking. Is Timothy a bond servant of God being a pastor? Is it correct to say not all believers are bond servants of God? Is there a difference between servants and bond servants? Is there a special calling? What happens to servants? Thanks so much. My learning has sped up so much reading the Q&A and your articles!
Q. I read an online article by someone who says having a standing army is a violation of Israel’s Old Covenant relationship with God and means they don’t have any right to the Church’s support. I think he’s missed a big part of the point point and probably is also using the Bible in the direction he wants his opinion to flow. I might be totally wrong. What do you think?
Q. If Adam and Eve were the only two human beings created by God, and then they had children, who did Cain and Seth marry? Or did God create other humans after Adam and Eve? Genesis 4.16.
I know this sounds like a silly question, but I have always wondered who their wives could be.
Q. I am truly enjoying the lessons on Revelation. However, I wanted to ask you about the two books that will be opened. You said something I had never heard, that our names are already in the Lamb’s Book of life. Can you explain further how you came to this and where I can find more on this subject? If my name is there already how come I can go through times worrying about it not being there?
Q. Re: The 144,000 of Rev. 7 and 14. If one of the groups consists of Jews, and the other represents the raptured Church, does that mean that 144,000 is the pre-determined number of Christians who will be saved & raptured before the Great Tribulation? In which case, aren’t there a lot more Christians in the world than that today? Does this mean that only a select portion of the Church will be taken in the rapture?
Q. What evidence do we have that Old Testament prophecies we believe to be Messianic in nature are also considered to be Messianic Prophecies by the Jewish people? And if our versions of them are the same what is their reasoning for not accepting Jesus?
Q. I have a question regarding Revelation 4. If the 24 elders are believed to represent the raptured church, what’s the significance of the number 24?
