I have a question regarding myself being a believer and being married to an unbeliever. When I married my husband, I thought that he believed in Jesus as our savior. I hate to admit it but back then we both were not attending church and I didn’t know until we were married 15 years that my husband misled me. He thinks we evolved from Apes. Is my marriage to him a sin? I pray that he will accept Christ and realize his thoughts on evolution is incorrect. Doesn’t Jesus want us to bring people like my husband to him? I love reading your site and thank you for blessing me with tons of inspiration and devotion time.
Re: Destroying Iran? It seems that Israel could very well strike and destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities without destroying their capability to wage war with conventional weapons. Wouldn’t an attack by Israel be likely to bring on the attack of Ezekiel 38 rather that thwart it?
In the last year I have been studying the “Hebrew roots” of my Christianity and am now in AWE more profoundly than ever – of God’s patterns I’m discovering. Partly in thanks to your website I understand in a more straightforward way, the prophetic significance of the Spring Holy Days (Passover/Unleavened Bread/First Fruits) and the first coming of our Jesus the Christ. That – and also the likelihood of Jesus’ birth being sometime during Sukkot and his conception being sometime during Hanukkah! Simply Amazing!
My question is – given how God’s ordained Holy Days are directly related Jesus, and how it is likely that the Autumn Holy Days also relate to His second-coming, wouldn’t the Rapture likely occur during one of these God-ordained Holy Festivals in autumn? That still wouldn’t be pin-pointing a day or an hour if it occurred “some time” within, say, an 8 day festival – right?
Thank you, as always, for your help. My question is about the book of Ezekiel. I’m well aware of the prophetic implications of chapters 38 and 39 as well as the Millennial Kingdom mentioned at the end of the book, but my question pertains to Ezekiel 12:27-28. I’m specifically wondering about the part of verse 28 that says, “None of My words will be delayed any longer. Whatever word I speak will be performed”. If the entire book of Ezekiel was meant to be fulfilled in the generation of Ezekiel himself, what fulfillment was there for 38-39, the temple and the kingdom? Was there a defined break in the book that I’m missing that showed that these prophecies are strictly for future times and not part of what God was mentioning in verse 28?
I am a brand new believer and my faith is very weak, very small. Is there anything in scripture that says you should feel differently after you’ve accepted salvation than you did before? I’m worried because I’m not sure if I’m really saved or not. My mother, the person most responsible for helping me get saved, assures me I only need faith “as small as a mustard seed.” But, I still have doubts as to whether I’m really saved because I don’t feel any different. Can you help?
“And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew…” (Genesis 4:25) What is the application for today? Is Abel’s death and replacement by Seth a foreshadow of the Gentile Church replacing Israel?
The Bible tells us to pray for our enemies. Please tell me how I can pray for someone for whom I have no trust or respect? When I try to pray, my words are flat, my heart is cold and my feelings go against everything in the prayer. God knows my heart. He knows that I am not sincere. What does God expect from a simple human? Please help me understand how I am to obey this difficult instruction from my Father.
I was reading and came across this verse in Genesis 5:3. And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat [a son] in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth. Why is this worded like this?
You failed to use Matt. 24:31 in your article which is common among pre-trib believers. You will stand in front of God and answer for why you did not teach the full gospel of the tribulation and that the rapture happens just after the tribulation of those days. You also fail to realize 1 Thes. 5:9 does not mean the rapture because God has the power to protect Christians from his wrath on the earth just as he protected the Jews from Egypt. Nowhere in the Word can you point out that the Word specifically states that the rapture is before the tribulation.
I find it interesting that everyone who believes in a pre-trib rapture never addresses Rev. 7:14. Just how do you have Christians coming into heaven out of the great tribulation if all Christians are raptured before the tribulation?
