How Can Satan Come Into God’s Presence?

Q. The Bible say God hates Sin and even on the Cross, when his own Son died, he could not look at Sin and turned his head. In Job 2:1 it says “..and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord” In Revelation 12:10 it talks about the accuser of our brethren cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. Satan is the ultimate in sin itself, why/how can God tolerate Satan in his presence?

Identifying The Two Witnesses Of Rev. 11

Q. The question I have is from Revelation 11:3 about who are the two witnesses. Some speculate that it could be Enoch because Enoch walked with God and was not, and it could be Elijah because Elijah was taken into Heaven without dying. I myself have the belief that it will be two that we have never heard of. I also have a problem with the idea that God would send one of the old prophets back here after they have already done everything God asked them to do the first time.
There is another reason also. When you go into Deuteronomy what is required to put another person to death is that you have two eye witnesses, I also know that the two witnesses will prophesying, but could they also be here to eye witness the corruption for the final judgment? Now I know that God is Sovereign and sees all that goes on here on earth, but He still sticks with the laws that He Himself established. If God can take Saul and turn him into Paul and give Paul direct revelation from the Lord, why couldn’t God do that with the two witnesses, two that are here now?

Why Did God Let Satan Live?

Q. What is the reason God allowed Satan to survive for thousands of years after his rebellion? Why didn’t He just destroy him and his followers immediately? After all- we know they will all be destroyed (sent to Hell – the burning lake of fire) eventually (I think very soon). Can you imagine what life would have been like without Satan’s influence. Probably much like Heaven. Also, will unsaved people go to “the lake of fire” or do you think most go to “outer darkness” and suffer mainly the absence of God forever?

Sharing The Temple?

Q. I just read an article regarding the Temple Institute and the money it has spent preparing for the 3rd temple. It said the Institute intends to build the temple for all monotheistic religions to come worship, which clearly includes Muslims. It says that Al Aqsa can stay, and they will build right next to it, maybe even somehow incorporating it into the temple.
Also, the article said that a leading journal of the religious law in Israel envisioned a situation where an “authentic prophet” receives a “holy revelation” to build the temple in peaceful proximity to the Al-Aqsa mosque and nearby Christian shrines. This, of course, could be the antichrist or the false prophet. For some reason, this struck me hard. For the first time, I can see how soon the temple could be rebuilt and how it could be built under peaceful conditions. I didn’t realize the Temple Institute’s intentions to allow other religions to worship and pray in the temple. What are your thoughts on this?

Satan’s Flood

Q. I just finished reading the article on Rev. 11:15-12:17, and something occurred to me at the end of it, reading your comment on the surge of water Satan uses to try to destroy the Jews. I was just thinking, I know in Turkey, they’ve built the Anatolia dam with which they’re holding back all of the water of the Euphrates now (thereby releasing the “four angels”?) Certainly when the antichrist/Mahdi comes, he’ll have control over this dam. Could the unleashing of this dam release the water the antichrist uses to cause this flood? What do you think?

I Am The Lord Who Heals You

Q. I recently read an article that says if we, believers, ask the Lord to heal us, there are certain terms. We have to live obedient lives and if somebody is living in sin, he mustn’t expect the Lord to heal him. I immediately remembered my besetting sin. So, to those of us who have besetting sins praying for healing is in vain? According to the author when the Lord first called Himself our Healer He promised to the Jews that He would only defend them from all the Egyptian diseases if they kept His commandments and were obedient to Him.

The Holy Spirit After The Rapture

Q. I have recently been studying Revelation in preparing to teach a teen Sunday school class, and thus far what I have gleaned from your answers that I still have a question about from what I have read in the Word is the following:
I understand that the Scripture says that all of Israel that survives the Trib. will be saved thanks to the preaching of the sealed 144,000, but is there Biblical proof that gentiles will be saved after the Rapture of the church? If it is true that the Holy Spirit will be removed from the earth at the Rapture, how could more Gentiles be saved? And where does the Bible say that Gentiles will be saved?

Zionism, Communism, And The One World Government

Q. I read an article that claimed Zionism and Judaism are not one and the same. The author said Judaism is a religion but Zionism is a political movement started mainly by East European (Ashkenazi) Jews who for centuries have been the main force behind communism/socialism. The ultimate goal of the Zionists is a One World Government under the control of the Zionists and the Zionist-oriented Jewish International Bankers. He said the Ashkenazi Jews are not blood Jews but merely chose Judaism. He said that God said, “Beware of those who call themselves Jews and are not, for they lie.” Could it be that the Ashkenazi Jews are the people to whom God was referring and who have dominated the government of Israel since its beginning in 1948? Thank you for your insight, as always.

Remembering Our Daughter

Q. Our daughter died from a brain tumor 14 years ago at the age of seven. We know she is with Jesus now. She woke up three days before she died, lifted up her hands, and said, “King, come and get me!” She was paralyzed from the waist down and it bothered her a great deal that she could not move her legs. I have been struggling with this this week. If we were to get a glimpse of her in Heaven now (before she receives her new body at the Rapture) what would we see? Would she look like herself (or maybe an older version of herself?) Would we recognize her and would we see that she has the use of her legs back?
Soon after she died, I kept asking our pastor, is she really gone? Is she OK? Is she scared to go on to Heaven without us? He said, she would never be afraid of Jesus and His angels, and that she was already running the streets of gold. Would we see her as herself?
