Re: Zombies In The Bible,Follow Up. Could the people in Rev. 9:6 who “will not be able to die to escape from the terrible pain of the scorpion stings they will have received” be suffering from a paralysis caused by the stings? If these people were totally immobilized(but still conscious) where they could not move or even speak then they may seek death and long to die, but will be unable to do anything about it.
Re: Must God Choose Us? Could you explain these two verses. Isaiah 55:6 says, “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near” and John 6:44 says, ” No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.” They seem to contradict each other.
How does the issue of divorce apply to a battered spouse and/or if the husband is abusing the children physically? I know of situations like this and there does not seem to be any Bible teaching addressing this because the only valid reason for divorce is adultery or if an unbelieving spouse wants it. In the “real world” these kinds of things are happening and people are seeking answers and they need a biblical response.
I believe in pre-tribulation rapture. From my research I believe Matt. 24:40-42 are referencing the Second Coming (and not the Rapture). Matthew 24:40-41 says, “Then there shall be two men in the field; one will be taken, and one will be left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and one will be left.” Who are the ones taken, and who are the ones left ? Also who is Jesus prophetically telling to keep watch in Matt. 24:42?
I have a couple of questions regarding Revelation 6:9-11. Slain souls were under the alter crying out for God to avenge their blood. I read a commentary on this passage and they thought the souls under the alter was the blood of the slain. But in the next verse they are given white robes which to me means that they were more than just blood. Second question, in verse 11 there is a full number to be slain. Is there any significance to this number other than God knows the number?
I recently ran across videos and articles by those who contend that the current resettling of Jews in Israel is not according to prophecy but is a political situation that is the sole cause of blood shed in the middle east region. They use Leviticus 26 verse 14 and up along with sections of chapter 27 to support this view. Please help me understand why the diaspora has ended and any verses that point to this promise. I can not believe that this return is without warrant from God.
I am having trouble fitting the start of the Day of the Lord into the 7 year tribulation sequence. It seems it starts in Rev. 6:17 after the 6th seal, but in 2 Thes. 2:3, Paul says the Day of the Lord won’t come until the AC is revealed, which is in the mid of the tribulation. I thought the mid-trib point is after the 6 trumpets. So where in the sequence of seals and trumpets is the start of the Day of the Lord? Thank you so much for your help!
I was talking with an atheist about morality and about God’s holy nature, and the Ten Commandments came up, and she asked me “What is the tenth commandment?” I responded “Do not covet”. She immediately said that I was wrong and said the actual Ten Commandments are in Exodus 34: 1-28. I looked it over and indeed in verse 28 it calls these orders, the Ten Commandments. I was not able to really continue the conversation because first I wanted to read over what she had referred to. Which ones are the actual Ten Commandments?
