Are All Our Sins Forgiven?

Are All Our Sins Forgiven?

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I’ve received a number of questions about a recent series of online articles disputing the idea that Jesus died for all our sins, past, present, and future on the cross. The articles make the claim that the Bible teaches no such thing. So let’s find out. Does the Bible teach that all the sins of our life were forgiven at the cross or doesn’t it?

Confirming The Sequence Of End Times Events

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

He replied, “When evening comes, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,’ and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.” (Matt. 16:2-3)

So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. (Matt. 24:15-16)

For then there will be great distress (Great Tribulation), unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again. (Matt. 24:21)

When it comes to developing any kind of time line concerning the End Times, the watershed event has to be the Abomination that Causes Desolation. Why? Because from that time forward, the Bible gives a very clear sequence of events. Continue reading…

The Unbelievably Amazing Destiny Of The Church

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,  made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.  And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,  in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6-7).

The Promise Of A Lifetime

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well (Matt. 6:31-33).

Lord, Teach Us To Pray

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

A guest speaker came to our church with an interesting insight on the Lord’s Prayer. Taking line by line, he showed us how to turn it from something we know by heart and can recite without thinking into an impassioned personal discussion with the Lord that can last as long as we want. You do it like this.

I in Them and You in Me

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Some of the confusion regarding the permanence of our salvation comes from our failure to distinguish between the two facets of our relationship with the Lord: union and fellowship.

Water into Wine

The Woman Caught in Adultery

Commentary by Jack Kelley

The Teachers of the Law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with His finger. When they kept on questioning Him He straightened up and said to them, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:3-8)

Good Morning, Lord. A Commentary On Psalm 19

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Psalm 19 is one of the best daily prayers I’ve ever found. Commit it to memory and use it in your prayers each morning. Just like your daily bath or shower makes you physically clean, praying Psalm 19 makes you spiritually clean.  It’s a great way to fulfill 1 John 1:9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

Dreaming Dreams And Seeing Visions

Q. My question is about Joel 2:28. I hear many people today claiming that the Lord has spoken to them through dreams and visions about how these end times are going to play out and how we need to prepare with food and arming ourselves. When I asked one of these persons to give me Bible verses to back this up they beat around the bush and I really didn’t get a verse of scripture. There are so many people claiming that they are getting words from the Lord with this method that I feel left out! The only Word I get from The Lord is in the Bible. So are they right and can this verse of scripture be used to back them up?

The Coin Of Redemption

Q. I have a question about your Revelation 5 commentary. It reads: “According to the law a son could redeem what his father had lost, but in the transaction Adam had become a sinner, disqualifying all of his sons from ever redeeming him. The coin of redemption was the blood of a sinless man, . . .” How was this price established (the coin of redemption)? Can you explain this more fully? By the way, you have filled in many blanks in my mind regarding how God operates legally in the Universe. Thank you very much.

The Conviction Of The Holy Spirit

Q. I have a question from a friend of mine. He asked me if He is Saved if he sometimes feels no remorse what so ever for sinning even when he knows its wrong. He says the only thing he gets is a “maybe I shouldn’t do this” feeling and that it often goes away. Please help me answer him!!

The Number

Q. I notice that you stand with those who believe that the rapture does not have a set date, but instead a set number of believers who must be completed in order for it to take place. I was wondering if there were any clues given as to that number. I only remember reading “a multitude that could not be numbered” for the saints that stand behind the Lord at the final white throne judgment. Thank you for your insight and praise God there are those like you who encourage steadfast Christians to think.

OSAS And Matt 8:10-12

Q. Re: Matt. 8:10-12. I believe in OSAS but as I read this passage I wonder if my belief is misplaced. Here we have the Sons of the Kingdom! But they are being cast out? Why are they being cast out? What did they do to cause them to be cast out? This verse says, they are in the kingdom of Heaven!!! This bothers me. I must be missing something, It just doesn’t sound like you’re always saved. Please explain and pray for me.

The Kingdom Of God. Follow Up

Q. I was reading your answer to the question about the Kingdom of God saying the kingdom would never be destroyed or given to another etc. I thought that after one thousand years the earthly kingdom would be delivered up to God by Christ and the earth would be burnt up and everything made new for eternity etc ?

Is It Sin Or Not?

Q. I understand that when we get to Heaven our works on Earth will be judged according to our motives for doing them. But Jesus said to store up treasures in Heaven instead of here on Earth, and Paul said we can earn rewards in Heaven, including the receipt of Crowns. My question is: Does striving to receive rewards in Heaven for our deeds on Earth, even in part, constitute a sin? Deep down how can we not have a selfish motive in doing His work when we have these kinds of rewards in mind?

Who Is In Charge Here?

Q. Please help me to understand the following. When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, they legally gave the earth over to Satan, right? So, all throughout the years until the Lord gave Himself on the cross and rose from the dead, was Satan the real owner of planet earth, instead of God? How could God not own the earth? It seems incredible. It seems King Jesus bought the earth back somehow, with His blood, but Satan is still ruling it or something. Is there any more about this you think I should know?
