In the past years I received a promise, and then I received many signs that confirmed that promise. But I have sinned because I made a promise to God too and I have not fulfilled it but I am working on that every day to fulfill the promise. I requested pardon to God for that things but my question is : Have I lost my promise? or God is going to fulfill the promise or it is possible that God will retract the promise by my behavior?
Thank you for paying attention to my question
Hi, I was hoping you would answer this question for me. Could you explain to me what exactly the anointing is? I have heard people talk about it but no one has actually taken the time to tell me what it is. Thank you and God Bless you and continue to do what you do! I am blessed every time I come online and read. I learn a lot too.
I was reading in the book of Titus and chapter 1 verse 14 caught my attention, “not paying attention to Jewish myths and commandments of men who turn away from the truth.” I’m curious what Jewish myths were causing trouble in the early church and if that means we shouldn’t rely on Hebrew teachings (maybe like those of Josephus?) and traditions to attempt to shed light on God’s truth? Or is it just an admonition to not get carried away with it? Thanks as always for your insight and hard work.
I have another question for your wonderful site. I always thought the “church” is the bride of Christ…but studying Revelation recently , I reread chapter 21 where John is shown the bride and it is the New Jerusalem/the Holy City “prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband…”. Will you explain or comment please? Thank you and God bless you.
I have come to realize that the most important relationship one can have is with GOD….What must I do to make it happen? Thank you for your time as well as your insightful website.
My question isn’t over anything in scripture or doctrine. I am just searching for a bit of wisdom from you. I have been considering Bible college, however, my rabbi doesn’t feel that is it truly necessary. I trust his opinion but was wondering if you know of any good reasons for or against going to Bible college.
I have asked God to reveal His will for me and I have noticed in the last year how much He has opened my eyes to His truths.
I’m just wondering if Bible college will help me any more then me simply studying like I have been along with the help of men such as yourself and of course the Holy Spirit. God bless you and your family.
In your articles you say that children under the age of accountability will automatically enter the Church at the Rapture, having made no decision for themselves. Given the Church’s position, being God’s shining example of all His goodness, doesn’t it seem that defaulting children into it, kind of lowers its high position?
I’m thinking this because everyone else actually chose to be there, whereas the children who haven’t actually made a decision get free entry, when even if they all did live out their lives, not all would have chosen it.
It’s as if ‘here is the excellent Church, who all chose to be here, except for these few who defaulted here’.
Personally I see them at most being included as the Servants of God IE people before and after Jesus (even though they are from Jesus’ time, they didn’t make a decision in that time). Even though this still is a ‘default due to no decision’ position, at least it’s not giving them automatic entry to the best position there is.
What are your further thoughts?
I am a native American born-again Christian and our tribe is in the beginning stages of getting a casino up and running. Is it scripturally wrong to take a monthly check from the Indians that has come from gambling? I admit I have accepted their checks in the past and spent them. Thank you so much and God Bless You.
I have recently been talking to an Atheist about the evidence for the existence of Jesus Christ. He of course does not believe Jesus ever existed. One of my arguments for Jesus’ existence is the founding of the Christian faith. I also argued that the gospels had been in circulation prior to Paul writing 1 Corinthians and is what Paul is referring to as what was given to him in verse 3.
My friend points out that there is a minor problem with what Paul says in those verses. 1 Cor. 15:5 says, ” And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve” My friend had this to say, ” There were only 11 disciples at the time. Judas was dead and his replacement, Matthias, had not been chosen until after the ascension (Acts 1:9-26). That there were only 11 disciples is clearly mentioned in the synoptics. If Paul truly had the gospels available to him before writing 1 Corinthians, then why would he make such an obvious mistake?”
