Why Another Temple?

Published: November 25, 2019
Q

Can you explain why the rebuilding of the Temple is so important? Why, when Jesus died to take away our sins and we are able to worship God without a temple? And why is a Temple necessary during the Millennium? If Jesus is here with us, why does the Temple need to be rebuilt? It seems to be so vital to the Israelis. Forgive my ignorance on this matter.

Q

I have read Matthew chapter 25 about the 10 virgins, in the King James Bible, and it doesn’t mention anything in there about bridesmaids. Where did you get bridesmaids from Matthew 25?


Is Josephus A Reliable Historian?

Q

As I was reading one of your responses, I noticed you referenced the Jewish historian Josephus. My former pastor claims that Josephus was an unreliable source, and was a self-serving ally of Rome. Have you come across such allegations?


Believers Who Don’t Care About Sin?

Published: November 22, 2019
Q

When believers choose to live sinful lifestyles (i.e. have an attitude of I do not care whether I sin or not, since I love sin and it is my lifestyle), does that mean they would reject eternal security if their intent is to live a sinful lifestyle? Or does it reveal that they are not truly saved?


Is God A Spirit Or Not?

Published: November 21, 2019
Q

I always thought that God was a spiritual form only but after reading one of your commentaries it stated that when God was living in the Holy of Holies the high priest would visit with him once a year and a rope would be tied around his ankles to pull him out if he displeased God to keep God from destroying him if he sinned in his presence. This indicates to me that God was in human form at this time. Is this correct?

When was the book of Daniel written down? Was it written by Daniel or someone else? You said that chapter 11 was the most heavily verified chapter in the Bible. Can you explain to me how it was verified?


Explaining Luke 21:36

Published: November 20, 2019
Q

Can you explain Luke 21:36 to me? Maybe it is for Israel in the Tribulation, but I always wonder when I read it if we are supposed to pray about this. It makes it sound as if we may not go in the rapture before the Tribulation if we don’t pray about it. I’ve never heard anyone explain this verse that I can remember.


What Does Deny Mean?

Q

in 2 Tim 2:12 says that if we deny Jesus and He will deny us. In what sense is denial meant? Does this include believers, or just those who reject salvation through faith in Jesus?
