Why don’t Christians walk into synagogues at all to preach about Christ, as Paul did in the book of Acts? Or is this just “unacceptable” in today’s culture? Maybe some do, but I haven’t heard of any. Thanks again for your ministry!
My 90 year old Uncle, who is not a believer, is feeling God’s tugging on behalf of prayers. He has not been open to spiritual conversation however, due to many health problems, he recently questioned the existence of Heaven. What scriptures would help convince him of the reality of Heaven?
I saw your post on the 4 scriptures concerning the “thief in the night” and how that phrase doesn’t refer to the rapture but the 2nd Coming. I was wondering how that works out for Rev. 3:3. If this reference is written for the church and the church doesn’t experience the 2nd coming, why here is the Lord threatening some of the church with having to go through the tribulation, according to your post?
I have always been a little confused concerning the 12 tribes of Israel. Jacob had 12 sons, which became the 12 tribes. When land was given to the tribes, Levi received no land, and the 2 sons of Joseph were each given land making them 2 independent tribes. That makes 13 total.
After King Solomon’s death, God separated the nation. In 1 Kings, it says that God separated the nation into the northern 10 tribes (counting Joseph’s sons as separate tribes) and the tribe of Judah (10+1=11 tribes). Assuming that Levi was not included in this count because they received no land, that makes 12 tribes accounted for, but, since in the 10 northern tribes Joseph’s sons are counted as separate tribes, there should be a total of 13. The missing tribe appears to be Simeon, which was completely surrounded by the tribe of Judah. Can you explain why the tribes were counted like this?
In regards to a generation of years, God stated that no one would live longer than 120 years after the great flood. As far as I am aware some individuals have come to live very close to 120 years but not to 120. So does this mean that the average life span could be longer than 70-80?
I was reading a website and they are actively advocating disaster preparation. While this sounds reasonable, I and my daughter, sons and grandchildren do not have the means to prepare as indicated. By that I mean, I am elderly and just not young enough to lead the group in preparing. Some people are saying prepare for at least 7 years. That brings up the thought of such chaos, it sounds like the tribulation. What does the Bible say?
I wanted to ask you about whether or not we have specific demons with their own personalities that attack us on a regular basis. I am in the word daily and take my relationship with Jesus Christ very seriously. I am very careful about the media I subject myself to and have a genuine love for God’s discipline and refining nature. I do, however, have very specific attacks involving mental pictures that are terrible, and don’t seem to make any sense at all, but have a unique “stamp” on them. I’ve prayed and thought about these attacks a lot. Does this sound like a common theme… from a single demonic entity? If so, are there any specific ways to more permanently fend this thing off?
