What was the specific reason the Apostle John was sent to the island of Patmos? Was it because he accused the king of adultery? I get confused sometime between the Apostle John and John the Baptist. Thank you in advance for your clarification.
I have a question about John 4 where he talks about the nobleman’s son who is sick and who Jesus heals. Is it the same incident as the Centurion’s servant’s healing in Matthew 8? I have read that they are the same but are just different views. Just curious. What do you think?
Those who believe in a Pre-Wrath rapture say that the writers of the New Testament, especially Peter, Paul & John didn’t expect Jesus to come at any time. They say that according to Matthew 24:1-32 the temple had to be destroyed first. Also the Lord told Paul to go many places and the Lord couldn’t have come before Paul went to those places. Paul also said that the time of his departure was at hand, meaning he knew the Lord wouldn’t come back at just any time (2 Tim. 4:6). How do you answer them?
I saw an article about the date 10-10 having a biblical reference for the number 10. I know the number is supposed to stand for world completion, is there anything to this? The number 4 being for the world and the number 6 being for man, is 10-10-10 just a coincidence? Thank you for all of your insight and dedication, without you I would be somewhere out in left field.
I have two beautiful daughters who live with their mother, she does not go to church nor is there ever any talk about the Lord at their house. As I try to input a Biblical worldview and teach the girls the Word of God, their mother condemns me to the girls, basically saying that I am a ” Jesus Freak” etc.. She has pitted the girls against me and tries to make me look like the bad man. Do you have any scripture that I can use to get through to the girls that may help them to see the truth?
Does the “signing” of the covenant kick start the 70th week of Daniel or is it the day it goes into effect? Lets say, the Anti-Christ signs the treaty on October 13, but it doesn’t go into effect until December 31, which day actually starts the 70th week? Is it the day it is signed or the day it goes into effect?
I thank the Lord for your ministry, keep up the good work in Him. I have always read the Olivet Discourse understanding it according to the three questions asked by the disciples to Jesus, taking it not chronologically but like as question followed by its answer. I believe all 3 questions and relative answers focus on Israel. The Church is not “really” in view there. However, when we come to Mathew 24:36-42, I believe we are talking about the rapture of the Church as a sign to Israel and if not to Israel as a whole, to the 144,000 Jews involved in evangelizing people during the Tribulation. Where am I going wrong?
1. Does it say anywhere in the Word that God will release me from my own foolishness as I have paid a very high price for it over and over again. 2. Is it true that He would not have healed me if He had not also forgiven me? 3. Lastly, if someone apostatized – not just backslid, are they still covered under grace?
I asked a friend at church what Joseph and Mary did with all the gold and precious spices the wise men gave to them when they came to worship the Lord. She told me that Jesus was not a poor man, that He wouldn’t have called up His disciples to leave their families poor and unfed, and that He wore the clothes of a rich man otherwise why else would the soldiers gamble for His clothing. This goes against everything I’ve known. I don’t think it’s a correct view. How could Jesus teach about forsaking money and possessions, yet be a rich man? That would have made Him a hypocrite, and that’s impossible.
I have a friend who says God wants us to suffer for His name’s sake. The scriptures he uses to back up what God means by suffering are Philippians 1:29; 1 Peter 3:17 and 1 Peter 4:19. Can you explain the context of suffering that this gentleman is speaking of?
