I read an opinion that we have already experienced the first five trumpets and are awaiting the sixth which will bring about the Rapture. This person believes the timeline follows proper interpretation of Daniel 11 and understanding the trumpets. He says he is pre trib but delineates from regular views.Have you heard or read anything about this?
Lev 16:16 refers to the need to cleanse all the sins in the sanctuary by making an atonement on the day of atonement. Are these the sins that were transferred daily through the lamb sacrifices? How did these sins get into the sanctuary or did OT sanctuary service operate according to a substitute model where sins were transferred to the lamb, and from it to the sanctuary?
you state that “God said He created both the animal kingdom and mankind in a single day about 6000 years ago” (Genesis 1:24-31) I can accept that man etc was created in one day, but where in the Bible are we told that it was 6000 years ago. I have always believed that this is based on the various genealogies listed in the early books of the bible, but I also understood that some of these genealogies are not necessarily complete. I would be interested in reading your thoughts on how the 6000 years have been calculated.
I’ve recently been noticing more people praying to Jesus and/or the Holy Spirit during public prayer times. This doesn’t make sense to me since Jesus taught His disciples to pray, “Our Father…” No where else in the Bible do I see prayer being directed to anyone else except God the Father. Just wondering if I am missing something or there is Biblical warrant for what I have essentially assumed for most of my life?
Some time ago I came across Zechariah 2:8-9, verses that certainly seem to apply to the United States at this time. I wanted to share that with you and get some feedback on it:
For this is what the Lord of armies has said: In the way of glory he has sent me to the nations which have taken your goods: for anyone touching you is touching what is most dear to him. For at the shaking of my hand over them, their goods will be taken by those who were their servants: and you will see that the Lord of armies has sent me.
I heard that in the Hebrew language each letter has a numerical value and when you translate number 666 to corresponding Hebrew letters, you come out with the name Nero who was persecuting Christians at the time of John’s banishment to Patmos. Do you think John was referring to Nero? Was he perhaps referring to Nero and a future anti-Christ, too?
I have a friend who believes and teaches about preadamites. It isn’t that theory itself bothers me, as much as the idea that comes from it. The bible clearly says that Adam was the first man, and that through him (Adam) was sin and death brought into the world. If a race was already here and God destroyed it, wouldn’t that make these verses in the bible untrue? He teaches that this race happened between Gen 1:1, and Gen1:2 during the Gap Theory. Any biblical thoughts would be more than appreciated, thank you.
Does Ezekiel 33:1-9 mean we are to speak up when we see wicked things and warn or hold accountable the person involved in such things, or we will answer for their death? So if we remain silent, this is a sin?
There are people today in the Church Age who truly believe they are saved by grace and not of works, but “fear” and think they can lose their salvation by disobedience. I know all other believers from the Old Testament, Tribulation, and Millennial times will have to do works/obey in order to show they are believers. The Church Age is the exception, but can Church Age believers cancel out their salvation by being afraid they can lose it?
