Does Israel Have A Right To Our Support?

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?

More On Adam and Eve

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.

Q. I am truly enjoying the lessons on Revelation. However, I wanted to ask you about the two books that will be opened.

Did God Ever Stop Working?

Q. Re: John 5:19-21.  After Jesus healed the lame man at the pool of Bethesda and the Jews wanted his head for claiming he was God, He said that He did nothing of Himself but only what the Father does.  It appears in these verses in John 5 that the Father was doing independent work of His own.  So even though He equipped Jesus to do the work while on earth, the Father was also busy working Himself?

Adam And Jesus

Q. I’m aware that Adam was created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27) and that Jesus is the bodily representation of God (Colossians 1:15). Does it seem Biblically accurate that Jesus and Adam resembled each other? In a sense like twins?  Or is it more of a Spiritual imagery?
