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?
Q. I understand the meaning of the Lords Supper but should we, as christians, partake in the Lords Supper and if so how often.
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?
Q. What does the Bible say about Cremation (if anything)? I know it says ” The graves will be opened and the dead in Christ shall rise!”
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?
