Q

How did people get into heaven before Christ came and died for us? I understand salvation thru Jesus, but what about the time before Jesus?


The Gentiles, The Jews, And The Church

Q

If the Jewish people descended from Abraham then where did the Gentiles come from? Genesis 11:8 tells of scattering all the people and changing their languages. Were all of these people the Gentiles?


Can Prophets Be Wrong?

Published: June 18, 2021
Q

According to 1st Corinthians 13:9, Paul speaks of “prophesying in part” and many people today point to that as justification for the many “prophecies” today being way off or completely wrong. Personally I don’t see that as being correct, and Deuteronomy speaks specifically of prophets having to be 100% correct or face dire consequences. Do you see justification for the many “prophets” today being wrong? Can we trust those people to be speaking for God?


He Who Sits On The Throne

Published: June 18, 2021
Q

My question is concerning Revelation chapter 4 verses 2 and 3.

Rev 4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. Rev 4:3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.

Who is the one who sits upon the throne? Is this Jesus? If it is, how does it fit with these verses in chapter 5?

Rev 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. Rev 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

If the one on the throne is Jesus, and we know that the lamb is Jesus, how does Jesus take the scroll from Himself? If the one on the throne is not Jesus, is it God the Father? If so, how is John able to look upon Him? Any help you could give to this matter would be most appreciated.

When Did Jesus Become God’s Son?

Published: June 17, 2021
Q

Was Jesus the son of God from the beginning ? I mean did he give up his place in heaven as the son of God to be born on earth through Mary as a man? Also what happens after the one thousand year rule on earth by Christ is over does Jesus offer up the kingdom to God so heaven and earth become one like in the Lord’s prayer?


King Solomon and The Queen Of Sheba

Published: June 17, 2021
Q

I have a question about Solomon, I have read in several places that Solomon married the queen of Sheba but in the bible I can only find where she came to him to see if his fabled wisdom was true. Once she found out it was true the last I read of the queen of Sheba is that she returned to her land (1 kings 10:13). Am I missing something? Did Solomon marry the queen of Sheba? And where can I find that in the bible?

Could David Lose The Holy Spirit?

Published: June 16, 2021
Q

I was reading Psalm 51 and noting that in vs 11 David prays that the Lord take not His Holy Spirit from him. Since David was not part of the church, did he have a legitimate fear of losing his relationship with the Lord (in other words his salvation)?


Our Spirit And God’s. Follow Up

Published: June 15, 2021
Q

Re: Our Spirit and God’s. You said we’re born with our spirit attuned to the Spirit of God. I understand that Jesus commanded us to be born again (in the spirit). Why do we need to be re-born when God had already formed our spirit during conception? Is our original attuned spirit inferior to the required ‘born-again’ spirit?
