I have a question based on something my former youth pastor posted on Facebook. He used Philippians 1:27-29 to deny salvation through faith alone. That doesn’t seem right to me. What are your thoughts on that?
My question deals with some thoughts I can’t make sense of. Jesus died so his blood covers our sins from God’s sight. Still, He knows our needs and we’re to pray to the Father. If the Father can’t see our sins now, will they be exposed after the rapture if we don’t ask for forgiveness? Also, do we pray for healing to make the Father aware of our need or just our desire? I’m having a hard time reconciling what the blood covers with how we pray.
I am wondering what the difference is between ‘fallen angels’ and Satan’s ‘demonic horde.’ I always thought demons WERE the fallen angels. Also, Satan and his hordes of demons do tempt us along with the temptation of the world and our flesh, right?
What can we learn from John’s letter to the Church of Philadelphia, in which he could find no fault with their mission or accomplishments? Of the seven churches mentioned early in Revelation, it seems odd to me that only one received such lavish praise without a single, even gentle, criticism. What can the church of today do to emulate that congregation?
In Matthew 10:32-33 Jesus said, “Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in Heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.” But in Matthew 26:34 Jesus said Peter would deny Him three times, and then Peter did. What is the implication of Matthew 10:32-33 for Peter, or for that matter for any of us who fail to speak up for Christ when we have an opportunity to do so?
What can you tell me about the last trumpet, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” 1 Corinthians 15:52 I don’t believe this is the same Last trumpet as in Revelation 11 but how do you prove that to some one who is post trib?
I’m sitting here doing homework for a study I’m taking on Revelation. In the booklet, there’s a reference to 1 Peter 1:10-12, concerning our salvation. At the end of verse 12 it says, Even angels long to look into these things. What is Peter talking about in the verses leading up to this verse and what does it mean that even angels long to look into these things?
Concerning this Scripture: “As it is written: No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit.” (1 Cor. 2:9-10). Please excuse me for asking a dumb question but I don’t know what the last part means or “but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit”. Maybe I’m complicating this verse but I really don’t know what the Spirit has revealed.
I love your site and appreciate the abundance of useful information you have here. The question I have for you is insignificant, but I’m still curious about it. I was wondering if in our new glorified bodies, would we be more powerful than the demons that bother us on an everyday basis. I was also wondering if we’d be more powerful than Satan once we are glorified. Any insight would be appreciated, thanks a lot.
