The Voice Of The Lord

Published: February 15, 2022
Q

My question is on 1 Samuel 3:10, in the verse it states that the LORD came and stood and called Samuel as the other times. The Hebrew word for “came” is bow’ which could mean (to enter, come in)… and the word “stood” in Hebrew is yatsab which means (station oneself or present oneself). Then in verse 21 in chapter 3 it states that the LORD appeared again to Samuel. The word for appeared in Hebrew is ra’ah which could mean (to be visible).

So I guess my real question is, was this a pre-incarnate appearance of Christ, as in other times in the OT?


What Makes The Narrow Path Hard?

Published: February 14, 2022
Q

In Matthew 7:13-14 it says that wide is the gate that leads to destruction, but it says that narrow is the way and some translations say hard is the path that leads to eternal life. Why is it hard if believing on the Lord’s death as payment for our sins is the only thing we have to do? What makes the narrow path hard?


Why Do We Deserve Death?

Published: February 14, 2022
Q

I’m a Christian. I believe in Jesus who died for my sins and rose on the 3rd day and do not trust in my own works getting me into heaven, and therefore rely solely on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. However, there is one thing that my human mind has difficulty grasping and that is that we deserve death. I do understand and believe that the wages of sin is death, but I have difficulty really understanding that we deserve to die because of our sins. Should I be worried of my salvation?


Shedding Blood For Our Sins

Q

RE: Could Adam Have Been Eve’s Redeemer. Hebrews 9:22 says “Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” What is it about the shedding of someone else’s blood that forgives the sins of another person. Why does that work?


Where And When Is The Bema Seat Judgment?

Published: February 11, 2022
Q

Recently I’ve been asked for biblical references as to why I believe that the bema seat judgment will take place during the Tribulation (or Daniel’s 70th Week). Obviously, I believe that the Rapture will happen before those seven years start. And, although I can find the references that say that there will be a judgment for believers, I haven’t been able to nail down ones indicating the timing. Could you point me in the right direction?


The Leaves Of The Tree Of Life

Published: February 11, 2022
Q

I know when we get to Heaven we will have our glorified bodies. But will the tribulation saints have their glorified bodies also or will they still be in the flesh? I remember reading the Bible and it said when they got sick they will have to touch the leaves to recover. So does that mean only the church will have glorified bodies or will we all have glorified bodies?


Could Adam Have Been Eve’s Redeemer?

Q

If Adam had refused the forbidden fruit could he have become the complete model of the messiah by acting as Eve’s redeemer?


Lower Than The Angels?

Published: February 10, 2022
Q

My question today is from Hebrews 2:9: “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels….” How can that be and what does this mean? God bless you.

 


If Not Eve, Then Someone Else?

Published: February 10, 2022
Q

If Eve had not been deceived, nor given the fruit to Adam–if they had obeyed God–would one of their children or grandchildren have been deceived? If God’s plan was to prove Himself just and loving, then someone had to sin and need redemption, right?
