As always, thank you for your beautiful site and for teaching us according to the Bible. I was wondering how do the Jews of today cleanse themselves of their sins without offering animal sacrifices?
I have a serious problem and don’t know what to do about it. My father passed away recently. It was very sudden, and ever since then my mother has been very nasty to me and my husband. I pray for her everyday, but recently it got so bad I finally sat down and told God that I was turning everything over to him since I couldn’t handle the burden any longer. I thought that by doing that I would feel better but I don’t. What you think I should do?
I believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ. I am a little confused about this scripture in Romans 11:25 though. I believe there will be people from the nations of the world (Gentiles) during the 7 year and Great tribulation period to be born again/believe in Jesus as the son of God and to be saved. My question for you is: if the Rapture doesn’t take place “until the fullness of the Gentiles come in” then, does this “Fullness” not include the Tribulation Gentiles?
The Rapture, A Secret Jesus Couldn’t Reveal, you quoted Matt. 21:43, “Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit” which is used to validate replacement theology. But Daniel 2:44 says, “In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.” What Kingdom is taken from Israel and given to another people (presumable the Church), and what Kingdom will not be left to another people? In what way are they different?
Re: Romans 8:16 which says, “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God”. What exactly is this “bearing witness” with our spirits? Can you more clearly define it? Is it a deep-seated “I know that I know that I know” feeling deep down? This verse has always confused me and it is seldom taught on.
After the Millennial reign of Christ, and the banishment of Satan to the Lake of Fire, I assume eternity also begins for all believers who are on earth. Will it be possible for anyone who resides on the New Earth to lose their salvation? Will it always be a faith plus works combination for them to maintain their salvation, even in eternity? Or will their salvation ever be secure?
To whom is Ps 34.10 reffering? The context makes no sense to me. I realize the term lions means different things in bible depending on context but here…? I have researched this but cannot find satisfactory answer.
One thing that has always made me wonder / sort of worry is when are facing Jesus Christ in Judgment ( like if we were to die) and he asks us ” why should I let you into the the kingdom of heaven”? I’m wondering what if I’m so tongue tied, and freeze up and cannot answer him and stutter? I’m afraid I won’t know what to say even though I know my answer would be ” because I accepted your payment on the cross for my sins, and put my trust in you alone”. I’m just afraid I will be so caught up in the glorious feeling, I wont know how to answer the Lord.
