Q. I have been told that the ancient Rabbis call the first 4 books of the Bible the Song of Moses. They also believed that the verses in this group of books could be numbered for the years of life on earth. Each verse says something about what is going on on earth in that co-responding earth year. I also understand that there are some verses that we have in our Bible that the Jewish Bible does not have; so we have to take that into consideration. All this is very confusing and kind of far fetched. What are your thoughts on this?
Q. I watch and wait eagerly for more signs of the imminent Battle described in Isaiah 17. Every day seems to bring it closer, as the partnerships between Iran, Syria, Turkey, and Muslim Africa strengthen before our very eyes! We truly live in exciting times!
My question is regarding the Isaiah 17 battle, and the preceding “peace”… It seems to me that a peace that would be broken by surprise in the battle described in Ezekiel 38-39, and would also get Israel the plot of land between Jericho and Jerusalem (for burying the horde) would also get Israel the Temple Mount. It only seems reasonable to me that Israel would not be “lulled” into a peace without a Temple. It seems that if the rapture is timed between Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38, we could have even a decade still before we see our Lord. Your thoughts?
Q. One night around a bonfire our friends were talking about God. One man said he didn’t believe in God. My husband told him to jump in the fire and see what hell felt like because without God that was where he was going. But what about my husband ? All the while he was telling this man about hell my husband was steadily drinking his beer. He is from South Louisiana and all his people are cajun party people. They believe you should live life and enjoy it. That means drinking, dancing and having lots of fun. That is how he was raised and what he knows. Is he going in the rapture?
Q. Is there any scripture pro or con indicating whether or not those that have died in Christ and gone to heaven still remember the lives and relationships they left back on earth? I’ve been told by several people that I respect that they don’t because that might cause them to worry or suffer grief. And although that makes sense to me they can’t give me any scripture to back this up either way. Others have said that they do remember and bring up the story of Lazarus and the rich man, but is that all there is in scripture about this subject. I am wondering what your opinion on this might be.
Q. How can the church reign with Christ in the New Jerusalem when He is on the throne ruling in the Earthly Temple during the Millennium?
Q. I’ve been bothered as of late, with a kind of curiosity that has beset me that wants to know what is the deal with magic. I know the scriptures say that the dark arts are a bad thing. I know that dealing with anything that summons demons is a bad thing of course. My interest has brought me upon a book titled “The Book of Abramelin” This book is said to be a originally written by a Jewish Talmudist and contains information on how to achieve “knowledge and conversation” with the “Holy Guardian Angel” What are your opinions on magic and the Kabbalah, and if somebody like me who has the holy spirit within me, am I protected against the evils of magic? Or is magic an area I should avoid all together?
Q. I like reading your Q&A during lunch and noticed the posting yesterday concerning King’s Saul’s salvation that brought to my mind a question I have had concerning King Solomon’s salvation. That led me to so a search of “Solomon” on your site wondering if anyone had asked you about King Solomon’s salvation. We know God gave him wisdom beyond any other man and Solomon also acquired great wealth, but Based on 1 Kings 11:33 I wonder the same about King Solomon.
Q. This doesn’t mean that the people are sinning during the millennium when Satan is bound for that time does it, but that after his release he is able to convince man to sin again, as he did Eve in the garden? And he will be released for a time, which could be quite a period of time, as in the days of Adam to Noah, it didn’t take long for the whole earth to become evil.
Q. I am very concerned that getting angry at God, telling Him off, and tearing the Bible means God will never forgive me. I have since seen the error of my way and even when I thought I had been doing God’s will before this incident, I was wrong. I had been baptized before all this happened. Will God forgive me now?
Q. I have years and years worth of questions written in my prayer journal that I want to ask someone, as soon as I get to heaven! So, will I have to ask or will we be instantly infused with all knowledge upon arrival? I have a million of them! Will I even care once I get to heaven?
