The Wave Offering

Q. I’ve seen different accounts of what is “waved” at Pentecost/Shavuot – wheat and barley. Does it mark the end of barley (spring) and beginning of wheat? Can you shed some light?

Abraham’s Children

Q. Where do we find any reference that Abraham had 8 kids (Isaac, Ishmael, and 6 others from another woman)? I have recently heard this teacher saying that, but he didn’t specify the source.

Israel At 60. Follow Up

Q. I saw your article on “Israel at 60, whats next?” I saw that you said that it all could happen within the next 10 years…is that true? I mean, no one knows the day or hour I know but I just want to know how you came to that calculation. Also, if the Rapture is to take place before the Gog-Magog attack, and if what you say about all that happening within the next 10 years is true, then the Rapture should take place at the most within the next 3 years. What do you think?

Unclean Children?

Q. I pulled this from an article and it got me thinking…
“The Bible plainly says that every child living in a home where neither parent is saved – under the protection of the blood – is automatically rendered unclean. Apostle Paul said it clearly, “For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy” (I Corinthians 7:14).
So then a child of 2 unbelievers is “unclean” and may not go in the Rapture because the parents make the children holy? Your thoughts on this?

Acts 2:23 And The Trinity?

Q. Hello and thank you for your site. I am hoping to get your feedback. I was reading an opinion of another as he was trying to use Acts2: 22, 23 in his analogy to help explain the Trinity, particularly vs.23 in reference to the “determinate counsel”. He is implying that the determinate counsel is the Triune God.
I think what the Apostle Peter was saying is that the determinate counsel were the high priest and his bunch that sought to persecute Jesus as foretold by God in PS. 2:2,3. I don’t think Acts 2:23 is a good example for the Trinity, what do you think?

Prophets Of Today

Q. I just read the three part article “Seven Things You Have To Know To Understand End Times” by Jack Kelley. I thought it was the best article I ever read explaining the end times.
I was wondering if you might consider writing an article on the role of the prophet in today’s church as described in Ephesians 4.
What is the role of the prophet in today’s church? How prevalent are they? How do we discern a false prophet from true prophet of God? How do we discern false, deceiving signs and wonders from the true miracles of God?
When I witness to people this comes up and I don’t have a good explanation. My only explanation is: If the prophecy or signs and wonders do not line up with scripture or if the prophet is not 100% right, then it is not from God.

Still More On Homosexuality

Q. Please don’t think that I am hard and unforgiving on the contrary from the day I committed my life to Christ I have known deep heartbreak and hurt from my own family who do not know the Lord. If I did not forgive I would ended with no family whom I love. I understand fully that without forgiveness the church is history.
As I said in letter to you I have weaknesses that I seek God for deliverance and strength but they are not a daily part of my life. I think if I did these same sins on a daily basis I would most likely
end up not serving God from a conscience destroyed by guilt and remorse.
Did the Lord not say to the women caught in adultery go and sin no more? If she had continued in her sin all I am saying is should there not be a change?

Why Didn’t God Send Someone Else?

Q. How come God had to send His only son to Earth to accomplish what he wanted accomplished? Why didn’t God just talk to someone else and tell them what to do? (kinda like Noah) So Jesus, being his “Only Son” does that mean he can’t send another person to earth now?
