Can You tell me what is the significance of number 69 according to bible? What does it denote?. This is because God has asked me to wait for 69 days about an important issue which I have prayed about.
I have a question about the Trinity. What do you think happened to the Trinity at the crucifixion – if Jesus was separated from His father by bearing the sins of mankind? Also if Jesus took everyone’s sin does that mean he descended into Hell before being resurrected and if so was that as Triune?
Hello and thank you so much for your website. It has been a blessing to me and I hope you continue it as long as you are able.
I’ve read what you wrote about “Why bad things happen to good people” and I still don’t find it very clear. One reason I’d like to have a clear answer is because my parents (who are not believers) ask me this all the time and I can never explain myself well enough for them.
Is the reason for bad things happening to good people because of Adam and Eve’s first sin? Are you saying that Satan is, in fact, ruling the earth right now and that is why bad things happen? So does this mean that God is not in charge of the earth right now, but Satan is?
Also, another question I’d like to be able to answer to my unbelieving parents is this: If God created us in His image and is all-knowing, why did he create Adam and Eve with the propensity to sin in the first place? God is more powerful than Satan, so why did Satan prevail here (by getting Adam and Eve to sin)? Thank you so much for your time.
My question is: Why do we no longer celebrate The Feast Days, and Sabbath? If I am correct, Jesus freed us from this part of the old covenant, however many say we are not exempt from honoring them. Also many say we should still have Saturday as our worship day rather than Sunday.
My husband has become quite enthralled with the Messianic movement. I enjoy the services and love to read how the different feasts relate to the Christ. My husband has been observing the feasts listed in Lev. 23. Since it says 4 times in that chapter regarding the feasts that “It is to be a perpetual statue in throughout your generations” he claim that God has meant for us to observe these feasts as well. The “throughout your generations” is what is emphasized. Would you explain this to me, please? I can’t argue with the Scriptures but I thought Jesus fulfilled the Law.
As a Jew and believer in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior … It is needless to say that I get many twisted looks from family and friends … If I had a dollar for all the “rolling of eyes” I get … However, my concern is that my family and loved ones won’t be saved since they deny Christ … I find it disheartening that I am looked on as a “sellout” or “crazy” …
I had a conversation with my father the other day and I asked him if he could have dinner with one person, whom would he choose. He said Moses because he has a lot of questions to ask a man who spoke with God. I said that is a good answer. He asked me who I would choose. I said Jesus. He asked me why, since Jesus came after Moses. I told him that Jesus came before Moses. The look on his face was of shock and disbelief. I don’t even think he understood where I was coming at first and when he did he just shook his head.
I pray that the cloud concealing The Truth is lifted from them but it has come to the point where I just rather not even speak about it anymore. I tell myself this is the devil trying to keep me from bringing salvation to family and friends but I don’t know what I can do.
What do you think?? It is so sad how the Chosen People are blind to their own Messiah. What a trick the devil has played on my people. Thank you and God bless you!!
Job 14:12, Dan. 12:13, John 3:13, 5:28 and some others seem to indicate we are asleep until awakened at the resurrection. How do you understand these scriptures? True the bible says absent from the body present with the lord, but when? When we awake at his calling. John 3:13 says no one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven etc.
Pastor Jack, Thank God for you. You have been a major blessing. God is mightily pouring His wisdom out to us – His church – through a willing vessel like you. God bless you.
I have a question. We had a guest speaker come to our church. A very anointed man of God – he shared with us a vision that God showed him about the end time battle. I wasn’t able to quiet get the picture. (Summary of the vision) Is this the Bride of Christ returning during the war of Armageddon? If yes, will the bride face death? I want to understand this clearly. Can you help?
I just finished reading your teaching on OSAS and had SO many questions answered. Thank you!
Toward the end of your message you wrote: “Those that stress belief, explain the permanent nature of our bond with God, and are directed toward eternity are Union verses. Those that involve grace and faith are Gift verses. Those that require work and are directed at the quality of our lives on Earth are Fellowship verses, and those that require work and involve eternal rewards are Prize verses.
I was thinking. It has bothered me that the need for repentance is not mentioned in verses like John 3:16, 1 John 5:12-13, Romans 10:9-10. Would all the verses in Scripture telling us to repent and be saved be verses dealing with Fellowship rather than Union since repentance involves a work? This is something I just can’t seem to get clear in my mind.
I’ve understood that repentance is a natural consequence of asking the Holy Spirit into our hearts. But wouldn’t it still be considered a work because we CAN choose to ignore the promptings of the Holy Spirit. If we DO ignore them and make no changes in our lives but yet still believe in Jesus Christ and in the work He did for us on the cross, that he IS God, that He WAS resurrected, if we really believe these things which are necessary for salvation but still refuse to give up our worldly lives, are we still saved? WOULD repentance be along the lines of Fellowship and not Union?
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for your continued service to our Lord Jesus Christ. I look forward to your response.
Were dinosaurs ‘named’ by Adam? Isn’t that a good question? Think about it. Why is it all animals have a name from Adam and they all carried over after the flood…except for dinosaurs? I understand the word ‘dinosaur’ became a word in 1841. I also understand that the words dragon and Behemoth that are found in the bible are most likely talking about a dinosaur. So, why do dinosaurs have names from recent discoveries in the fossil record but not the name that Adam chose? And, I believe with all my heart dinosaurs were on the Ark of Noah. I look forward to your answer. Many blesses to you all there at Grace Thru Faith.
