Our church is in the country and we have 10 acres of land. We have decided to have a vegetable garden to help feed those in our church that have lost jobs or anyone else in need. We hope to be able to home-can some of the bounty. Now my question. Several elderly women have cautioned us that if a woman is having her period, she must not help with the canning because it would cause spoilage. This sounds like an old wife’s tale to me but they insist it is true. Someone suggested that since this part a female’s life is caused by the original curse on Eve for touching and eating the forbidden fruit, that the curse continues today. Does that have any biblical foundation? I have not been able to find and scientific reason for it to be true.
I have a question about the 7 years of weapons-burning mentioned in Ezekiel 39:9. On 1/3/12 you said that you believe these 7 years will take place during Daniel’s 70th Week. Aren’t the Jewish people fleeing for their lives in the second half of the 70th Week? When will they have the time to finish burning up those weapons?
Is it provable that Moses is one of the two witnesses in Revelation chapter 11? A well-know Prophecy TV program has recently declared that Moses is one of the two witnesses. I thought this was unprovable from Holy Scripture. What are your thoughts?
I have a friend with a strange doctrine that bothers me. She believes that when Jesus died He paid for the sins of the world and all in it. So far no problem with me. Then she says that everyone is saved by that death without any actions, faith, or even knowledge of Jesus. In her opinion people from other religions or no religion will go in the rapture and will go to heaven, even without their prior knowledge or consent. Frankly I’m flabbergasted and do not know what to say to her to convince her of her folly.
Recently my sister went to be with the Lord after a long battle with Brain Cancer. My family are true believers of God and worship Him as our Personal Savior. After dinner one evening, my sister’s children asked if their mom was in heaven and my fiance said that she was in a place called “Paradise.” He said that is where you go before you go to heaven. I’ve never heard of this. Can you please offer some answers that I can share with them?
I once heard you must be baptized by immersion in water. As an infant, I was baptized Catholic. And I’ve also heard you cannot be baptized twice. Can you be born again without a baptism at the time you asked God for forgiveness through Jesus Christ, and through faith accept Jesus Christ as your Savior?
Through some of your recent writings, I have come to more thoroughly and TRULY understand the difference between the value of faith in Jesus and works done in His name. What does the Bible have to say about those living children or disabled adults who either because of their immaturity or disability, can not comprehend the acceptance of Jesus Christ as their Savior?
I am currently in a long distance relationship with a girl. The Bible says a woman and a man who are married become one in God’s eyes. If the Rapture happens before I marry this girl, how will we be before the Lord? I wish I could marry this girl right now and I can only hope and pray the lord will allow that to happen before the Rapture which I believe like you is coming very soon. Will we be joined in the Lord’s eyes if not married when the rapture comes?
Like everyone else, I’ve been intently watching the headlines, wondering what’s next for our country, our world. I’m a pre-trib believer, but I’m also realizing that my family is not prepared for the “tough times” we’ll probably experience before the Lord comes for us. I’m wondering if you could give some advice, insight, references regarding what we can do today to make sure we are as prepared as we can be regarding finances, food, fuel, etc. Like many others, money is a little tight for us right now; but I feel like I could be doing more to prepare us for what lies ahead.
