Resurrected Witnesses At The Rapture?

Published: July 4, 2022 (Originally published: December 29, 2015)
Q

In regards to 1 Thessalonians 4:16 -17, after the Lord descends with a shout, do you think the following scenario is possible? First, the dead in Christ will be resurrected and will enter into the cities and be seen by many. They may begin witnessing to family and friends. Just like Jesus, Jonah and perhaps even the saints of Matthew 27: 52-53, they may lead many to salvation. They may remain on earth for minutes, or hours or even days. Then, all those in Christ Jesus (i.e., the resurrected elect and the living elect) will be taken up into the sky to be with the Lord. Could this happen?

From The East To The West

Published: July 4, 2022 (Originally published: December 28, 2015)
Q

I recently watched a program on TV about a pastor/minister/religious leader proclaiming that he was Jesus in the flesh. This showed me there are false prophets amongst us and made me wonder if this is a sign of the end times.

How Was Jesus Tempted?

Published: July 1, 2022 (Originally published: December 25, 2011)
Q

Heb. 4:15 Says that Jesus was tempted in all ways. Was this the same temptation we experience? If I understand correctly He had no sin nature as we do, so how was it like our temptation? I’m not being contrary I just want to understand.

Can Satan Indwell A Person?

Published: July 1, 2022 (Originally published: December 10, 2008)
Q

I heard from somebody a while back that “Satan is a created being and can only be at one place at one time, like ourselves. Is it possible for Satan to actually “indwell” in a person? Because of my faith in Jesus, I know that He is with us and indwells in us always, but I thought that He and the Holy Spirit were the only ones capable of “indwelling” anybody.

Greedy Or Generous?

Published: July 1, 2022 (Originally published: December 24, 2015)
Q

I find myself often just flush with greed. I have much; I have more than enough financially and I have advanced to a healthy old age. Yet I seem to have the idea that, “if I had more I could contribute more to God’s work in the world.” Yet by most giving standards I do give far more than a tithe. I mean much more. Got any suggestions as to what is wrong with me? Is it just a worldly attitude? God forbid that an old person would be guilty of that!

Judging Teachers More Strictly

Published: June 30, 2022 (Originally published: May 24, 2013)
Q

We have a short family Bible study every night. We rotate the opening prayer each night between my children so that they learn that they are speaking to a real God and not a figure like Santa Claus. They are attentive, ask questions, and when I go over chapters we studied weeks before they remember what we have studied. My question concerns James 3:1. Am I held to a stricter judgment because we have Bible study as a family and I am teaching my children, or is James speaking of a formal teaching role within the Body of Christ?

Casting The Stones?

Published: June 30, 2022 (Originally published: May 24, 2013)
Q

I recently heard that the stones on the breastplate that the priest wore, were taken out, and cast down, much in the way (for those who practice it) chicken bones are thrown down, to see what God wanted them to do. I was told, “that is the only way they heard from God”. Personally, I don’t believe this. I have never read anywhere in God’s word of the Priest throwing down the stones out of the breast plate. Surely, if God can speak to Moses, and Abraham, He could speak to those High Priests too, couldn’t He,
