Ask a Bible Teacher

Influenced By Evil Spirits

Published: March 18, 2022
Q

I was watching a bible teacher I respect the other day and he said something I had never heard before. He said spirits can influence a child in the womb. He said in John the Baptist’s case it was the Holy Spirit influence when John leaped in the womb but he also said evil spirits can influence a child in the womb as well. What do you think?


Reacting To Sinners

Published: March 18, 2022
Q

How do you think we’ll react to sin during the Millennium? We’ll be in our glorified bodies in the New Jerusalem, but we’ll have access to Earth. The Earth will have sinners, at least after the 1st generation has babies and they grow up. Some of them may be our loved ones. Do you think we’ll avoid sinners?


His Mercies Are New Every Morning

Published: March 18, 2022
Q

Recently I re-dedicated myself to the Lord. I grew so weary and heartbroken because of my addiction to a particular sin. One moment, I decided I had enough and got rid of every enabling piece of my addiction, and prayed and fasted for the Lord to deliver me from this addiction once and for all. Two days later, I found myself repeating the same dreaded sin. My question is, how long will it take for the Lord to deliver me? Will it take very long, or could it just miraculously happen overnight? Is there any way of telling at all?


Unbelievers And Miracles

Q

I just have a quick question for you. When the subject of miracles is brought up when talking to atheists what is the best way to handle this? Are there any good points to state or any good studies to support miracles? What do you normally say?


Will I Be Forgiven?

Published: March 17, 2022
Q

I am troubled and need advice. I am 78 years old. I want to go to heaven when I die but due to my past, I am not sure this will happen. I have always believed that God and Jesus were real but during my life I was a terrible sinner. I committed adultery many times, stole, cursed, and lied all the time. I have asked Jesus to forgive me and let me be born again so that I might be allowed to enter heaven when I die. I pray every day confessing my sins, I ask that my family be protected. What else must I do to become a child of God? I know that God and Jesus exist but I also know what I have done. I don’t know if I will be forgiven of my sins and enter heaven when the time comes to be judged. Please give me your thoughts and advice. I need help.


Do We Need A New Covenant?

Published: March 17, 2022
Q

Since my husband broke our marriage covenant when he committed adultery, does this mean that we are no longer married before God? Since adultery is biblical grounds for divorce, does that mean our covenant remains broken until we create a new covenant? Or is the fact that we are reconciling renew the covenant?


Why The Mystery? Follow Up

Published: March 16, 2022
Q

Re: Why The Mystery?. Concerning Israel’s acceptance of the Messiah, I’m trying to understand what their acceptance really means. My initial thought was that if they hadn’t killed Him, then that would have been their acceptance of Jesus as the Messiah. But after reading the Q&A, Why the Mystery, it reminded me that He had to die, to fulfill the Scriptures. In it, you said, “Had they accepted the Lord’s death as the final sacrifice for their sins there would have been no Church” So, what would have constituted their acceptance?


Why The Mystery?

Published: March 16, 2022
Q

As important as The Church/Body of Christ is, it seems puzzling to me why Jesus left talking about “this mystery” almost entirely up to Paul, with him having to convince the other apostles of this teaching given him by The Lord Jesus Himself.


Saved Out Of Laodicea?

Published: March 16, 2022
Q

Revelation 3:21 says to him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me on my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. Does this mean that there will be some that will go in the rapture out of the Laodicean church? I have mostly thought that none of the apostate church would receive his request, to hear his voice and open the door. Every other church was given the option to overcome.
