Q. Thank you for this opportunity to ask you questions, I value your wisdom. My question is: There is a teaching that on some buildings and land there are curses because of the activities that have been carried out on the site, and these must be lifted by ‘spiritual warfare’ type prayer (applying the blood of Jesus etc). What is the Biblical position on this for New Covenant believers? Thank you.
Q. I have been ask to plan a Sunday when all the ladies in the church will wear white dresses. I feel that when this event is planned that the event should be based in scripture and have a scripture relevance and back ground;the wearing of white should symbolize or provide a link to help worshipers remember a meaningful/useful /encouraging/ promising verse or passage in scripture. What do you have to guide me in planning this event so that all will want to participate because it encourages them to reflect on Jesus and the promises of life in salvation and heaven. I want this event to be structured so that it is viewed and felt as a Holy -Sprit filled worshipful event.
Q. A few days back due to the problems in my life I said very bad things to God and Jesus. I feel sorry for what I said and I don’t want to go to hell. I am a born again Christian, I pray for others, tell them about Jesus, I help the poor, and I really have a tender heart in that I want everyone to get saved and be happy. But sometimes, due to the troubles I currently have, I get irritated when they don’t help me and shout at God. The last time it was just way too much. Can I still remain saved?
Q. I noticed something today while reading Judges 13:17,18 that peaked my interest and connected some dots for me in scripture. The angel of the Lord was visiting Manoah and telling him about the future birth of Samson, and how to raise him in the Lord (summary of vs. 2-16), and Manoah asked the angel his name so that he could honor him when his word about Samson came true. The angel replied, “Why do you ask my name? It is beyond understanding.” There are other scripture passages where people being addressed by the “angel of the Lord” asked the angel his name. Somewhere else in scripture, maybe you know the reference, the Bible mentions in Heaven we, the raptured saints, will be given new names known only to the Father, perhaps indicative of the personal and unique lessons we learned by being overcomers in Christ?. Do you think all of these passages somehow tie in the significance of our future names (and how they will be known only to the Father, indicating tremendous intimacy with God) and the nature of our co-servitude to God with the angels?
Q.Acts 3:21 says: “…whom [speaking of Jesus] heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God spoke long ago by the mouth of his holy prophets.” (WEB) I recently saw a website that says this verse means that the Church has to “restore all things” before Christ can return, so we need to get busy “restoring” things. I have never in my life read this verse this way. I always assumed it meant that Christ will not return (at the Second Coming) until it’s time to “restore all things,” which I take to mean “until it’s time to establish the Millennial Kingdom following the Tribulation.” Can you elaborate a bit on the proper interpretation of this verse?
Q. 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. I, like you, believe that we are saved as said in the Bible, by grace through faith and not of ourselves. I don’t think we can earn salvation at all but it is freely given, and it is not ours to give away or lose. In reading Revelation 22 I found the verses above that I need clarification on. Is this a sin that would remove someone who is in the Lamb’s book of Life? Thank you for your Scriptural integrity, may the Lord continue to bless you with wisdom and discernment.
Q. I heard a pastor say that if we walk away from the Lord and choose not to walk with him anymore that the epistles prove that your going to hell and not Heaven. I study so hard and try to come to the truth. It is real hard to hear so many different things and they use scripture too and it sounds like it is the truth. We have no church in our rural town that is teaching the truth, the apostasy is here too. We have visited so many churches. It can be frustrating to get to the truth of the Bible with all of this that is going on. I appreciate your site and knowledge of the word of God. Could you please give me scripture on what it does say if a believer walks away from the Lord. Some also say you don’t lose your salvation, but you can walk away from it and the Lord won’t force you to stay where you don’t want to be.
Q. I know the Trinity are One. How can it be possible, that One Part does not know what the Unity of the Trinity knows? Why then the following? “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (Matthew 24:26). Also, Father God knows everything beforehand – beginning to end. How is it possible that He will not know the day, hour, minute – when the last born-again person will enter His Kingdom, so that the Rapture can take place? Meaning, that the Rapture does have a spesific date and time? Thank you for much time spent in answering everyone’s questions. So much appreciated.
