How come the Holy Spirit is not worshiped in the Book of Revelation? He has no throne in heaven like the Son and the Father? I believe He is deity, the third person in the trinity, with all personal qualities mentioned in the bible, but the fact that He has no throne in heaven comes as a challenge to me. What are your thoughts?
A divorced couple has entertained the idea of re-marrying. The man stayed unmarried but the woman is going through a divorce with her current husband of 3 years. The reasons for the divorce is his addiction to pornography, which she feels is adultery against her. I have been under the assumption that a man should not remarry a wife who has been polluted through adultery (She had committed adultery – the reason for the divorce previously mentioned.) What do the scriptures have to say about such a situation? Would it be biblical for the two to marry again?
After the Millennial reign of Christ, and the banishment of Satan to the Lake of Fire, I assume eternity also begins for all believers who are on earth. Will it be possible for anyone who resides on the New Earth to lose their salvation? Will it always be a faith plus works combination for them to maintain their salvation, even in eternity? Or will their salvation ever be secure?
To whom is Ps 34.10 reffering? The context makes no sense to me. I realize the term lions means different things in bible depending on context but here…? I have researched this but cannot find satisfactory answer.
One thing that has always made me wonder / sort of worry is when are facing Jesus Christ in Judgment ( like if we were to die) and he asks us ” why should I let you into the the kingdom of heaven”? I’m wondering what if I’m so tongue tied, and freeze up and cannot answer him and stutter? I’m afraid I won’t know what to say even though I know my answer would be ” because I accepted your payment on the cross for my sins, and put my trust in you alone”. I’m just afraid I will be so caught up in the glorious feeling, I wont know how to answer the Lord.
In various answers you’ve spoken of tribulation saints of Rev. 7:9-17 and Rev. 20:4-6. Are you saying the tribulation martyrs (Rev. 20;4-6) are different then those believers who come out of the great tribulation (Rev. 7:9-17)? Would I be assuming correctly that Rev 7 tribulation people are those who survived through the tribulation and Rev 20 are those who died during the tribulation? If they are the same, then why do you say that the tribulation believers of Revelation 7:9-17 are never called priests? Are they not called “priests” in Revelation 20:6>
My wife and I have been lifelong members of a denominational church that has recently embraced the homosexual lifestyle and is proclaiming that Christ is not the only way to eternal life. This has caused us to stop attending. We just don’t know what to do. All we want to do is love and worship our Lord. Scripture is clear, homosexuality is a sin, and Jesus is the only way to the Father. Do you have any suggestions on how a believer can sort this all out and make the right decision?
In two of the Kingdom Parables, my study Bible’s interpretation differs from yours. With the Parable of the mustard Seed, it says says the ‘birds’ do not represent evil as they did in the previous Parable of the Sower. It goes on to say that the large growth of the mustard tree is good and represents the huge growth of the Kingdom from such a small beginning. In the parable of the Yeast, it again negates the yeast as symbolizing something evil; but rather its dynamic growth character. Again, pointing out the spread of yeast in dough, parallels the future fast growth of the Kingdom of God by the inner dynamic of the Holy Spirit. Could you give further explanations for your unique interpretation of these parables?
