Matthew 24 verses 44 onwards speaks of an unfaithful servant who is not watching for the return of his master. As a result he will be banished to a place where there is ‘weeping and gnashing of teeth’ amongst the hypocrites. What do you make of this in light of ‘once saved always saved?’
A friend had a sister that was killed in an accident, she was 18 years old. I had made a comment that it’s a shame when someone dies and they have not accepted Jesus as their Savior and they go to Hell for eternity. She was very upset with me and told me that God would never allow an 18 year old to go to Hell, because the young lady was drunk and didn’t know what she was doing. She had had problems with drugs and alcohol so it wasn’t her fault. What do you think?
Thank you again, Jack, for your wonderful work that you do for our dear Lord. You are truly advancing His Kingdom through your work.
I have another question for you. I am curious as to the exact date that Jesus was crucified. Awhile back, I read an article on your site, I believe it was in Ask A Bible Teacher, in which someone gave the dates of His crucifixion, the date of his burial, resurrection, ascension. I couldn’t find that particular article on your site.
One other question if I may. How many years ago did He die for us?
I am asking these questions because my 20 year old son is asking me questions, and is searching for answers. Sadly, he has not come to Christ for salvation….along with my 18 year old daughter. I just feel that the Lord has put this burden on my heart to do whatever I can to lead them both to the Lord. Please join me and my brothers and sisters in Christ in praying for them. Thank you so much, Jack.
I’d like to thank you so much for your ministry. It is very helpful.
I have a question. I know that fasting is mentioned in the bible, old and new testaments. But, I have never found where God instructed us to fast, how, why or when to fast. I’ve done Bible searches on the word, fast, fasted, and fasting and I’ve read all the scriptures that came up on the search. Can you help?
Again, thanks for your website. I refer a lot of new Christians to your site. You make everything very clear. Thank you.
In your article Seven Things You Have to Know to Understand End Times Prophecy, you say “A Millennium is obviously a defined span of time, while by definition Eternity is the absence of time.” You say similar things about there not being Time when we are in our eternal state in other parts of the articles. I am curious why you think there will be no time on the New Earth. Is it from Revelation 10:6 where the KJV translates it “there should be time no longer”? If so, shouldn’t that be interpreted to mean “no more delay”?
In the book of Genesis, when God placed the curse on the serpent, God told the serpent he would crawl on his belly…….for all the days of his life. Now I know this is going to sound a little far out there, but I need to ask. Before the curse, was the serpent walking upright in some way?
I have been looking through a lot of rapture web sites lately and some of the stuff I read is pretty “out” there. Date predictions abound but all that has done for me is cause disappointment and discouragement since they are always wrong. My question for you is do you think it’s possible to know the date or predict it with any accuracy? Considering Jesus’ statement that we cannot know the day or the hour, do you think Jesus was speaking about the rapture or His second coming? Forgive me if I’m being a pest. I’ll bet you have had this question before.
Many Jews before Christ were counted worthy because of their faith. But after the Cross no one comes to the Father except by Christ. History tells us there were some really astute scholars who have been a blessing to the enrichment and enlightenment of the Jewish people in the last 2000 years. But no matter what, those Jews will not be allowed into the Kingdom without faith in Him will they?
Lucifer, a beautiful creation (at that time), a cherub of the throne of God and yet in all the perfection of heaven, sin was found in him, now we who have lived our earthly lives in nothing but sin and saved by the grace through faith of Jesus, will enter into Heaven’s perfection . Will there be a chance sin could be found in any of us? Or will all evil be destroyed when Satan in cast into the lake of fire.
I have another question concerning the court of the Gentiles. Apparently, in the Jerusalem temple there was a curtain that separated the court of the Gentiles from the rest of the temple. According to some Messianic believers the Gospel account of the rending of the veil at the moment of Jesus death was not the veil in the Holy of Holies at all, but the curtain that separated the court of the Gentiles from the rest of the temple. Since the scriptures don’t specify which curtain, how can we know for sure?
