Joining The ChurchPublished: August 3, 2022
I would like to know if there is anywhere in the Bible that says in order to belong to a local church you have to be voted on by the members of a church. I may be wrong but I think that it is a denominational “custom” and the early church didn’t require a vote to accept someone as a member. I thought when you repent of your sins and trust in Christ that was the basis for membership into the church body. Please correct me if I am wrong and could you please back up any answer with scripture?
Where’s The Holy Spirit?Published: August 3, 2022
I was wondering if you could tell me where the Holy Spirit is. Is He presently on the earth or is he omnipresent? Also I was wondering where the Holy Spirit will be at when the church raptures. I mean if the restrainer is taken away like it talks about in Thessalonians that would mean the Holy Spirit would dwell in heaven, right? I would greatly like to hear your insight on this question it would help me gain a greater depth of insight into the word of God.
Was Jesus Called a Nazarene By The Prophets?Published: August 2, 2022
Matthew 2:23 says: “And he went and lived in a city called Nazareth, that what was spoken by the prophets might be fulfilled: “He shall be called a Nazarene.” I can’t find any OT prophet saying that. What was Matthew talking about?
Where Will Old Testament Believers Live?Published: August 2, 2022
Will The God-loving Jews from the old testament, or just the leading Patriarchs, like Moses, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob etc.actually live in this city with the “Bride of Christ” or will only “The Bride of Christ” live there. Where and who will live in the rest of the “The New Earth”. The New City will be 1500 miles cubed so who will live there and who will live in the rest of the New World?
The Power Of The NephilimPublished: August 2, 2022
In your essay on the Nephilim, you allude to their ability to foresee the future, and say their powers derived from Satan. My understanding has always been that Satan is not able to foresee the future. Otherwise, he would have tried to prevent the crucifixion of our Lord.
Regarding The TrinityPublished: August 1, 2022
Regarding the concept of the Trinity, I wish to ask, whats the appropriate way to attempt understanding? Is this an issue that we wont truly understand as long as we are in the flesh? Ive heard of 2 ‘explanations’ of the Trinity, and Id like to know how you see it. The first view was that there is One God, and He has 3 functions, like you are one person but you function as someone’s son, someone’s husband, someone’s father etc. The other view was there are 3 Personages, yet united, like in the government there are the 3 branches, executive, judicial, and legislative … all are still government, yet distinct branches. I can see the logic in both views but they can’t both be right. Help?

Who are the 24 elders in Revelation 4:4 wearing white raiment with crowns on their heads?
Goliath’s BrothersPublished: August 1, 2022
I was just wondering, in your “Children’s Stories for Adults, David and Goliath”, at the end you mention that the reason David took 5 stones is because Goliath had four brothers. Exactly where do you find that info? Is it in the Bible or other historical documents? Thank you!
Have They Lost Their Reward?Published: July 29, 2022
Re: Giving in Secret. I know of a couple who have faithfully given sacrificially towards supporting numerous missionaries for many years. On a few select occasions, they have tried to encourage others to embrace the joy of generous giving to get the Gospel out and in doing so, referred to what they have learned and in the process, some reference to what they do was made. Would this be a case of losing heavenly reward?
OSAS Believe It Or NotPublished: July 29, 2022
I love your site and have found it very helpful, however, I have a question. I am a born-again Christian and I believe in OSAS, but lately, I’ve been having a very difficult time accepting it for me. I understand that Jesus died for all of our sins, and all those who believe in him will be saved and that salvation can come only through faith. But at the same time, I often feel as if my own personal sins will somehow leave me exempt from that. No matter how much evidence I read I just can’t seem to accept the fact that I am saved, and still feel as though I need to earn it and that if I commit sins I will somehow forfeit my salvation.
