I have a question about the Rapture. I know “the dead in Christ shall rise first”,according to the Scriptures, but I’m wondering if this is a physical resurrection or a spiritual one? In other words, will unsaved people be able to see graves in the cemetary disturbed because Christians who have been dead and buried have gone to be with the Lord? Or do you think it will be more of a quiet, spiritual resurrection?
Peace and grace to you and yours. I have been studying in the book of Joshua and I came across the part where God tells Joshua to make six cities for those who have accidentally killed someone and they can go to one of these cities to seek refuge from the avenger. Topically, I understand this. What I’m wondering is if there is a deeper meaning to it. I know that (a well known bible teacher) says if you come across some scripture that is confusing to put Christ in the center of it. Is there something going on with these six cities other then just the idea of a ” safe house” for those Israelites seeking shelter until they can prove their innocence? As always, thanks for your efforts. God bless.
As always. thank you for what you do! I have been hearing alot of people lately say that they subscribe to the “pre-wrath” view of the rapture. How does this differ from the pre-trib view? If you disagree with this view can you tell me why you do scripturally.
I have heard that the pre-wrath view takes the stance that the rapture not happening before Revelation 6 is to purify the church. Why would this generation have to go through more “cleansing” than any other to be saved?
I’ve gotten a raft of comments on my comparison of John 20:22 with Acts 2:1-4 in my answer to a recent question. Some were more diplomatic than others in suggesting my understanding of these verses leaves something to be desired.
For some time now, I’ve been puzzled about the time between the resurrection and the ascension—wondering why the Lord lingered during those 40 days. It certainly wasn’t to complete His mission. By all accounts, He had already accomplished everything He came to do.
The doctrine of eternal security, or OSAS (once saved always saved) is one of the most hotly debated topics in all of Christianity. Did the Lord’s death really pay for all the sins of our life, thereby guaranteeing a place in Heaven for all born again believers?
Or, are we responsible for the sins we commit after we become born again, running the risk that our post salvation behavior can cause God to rescind his promise to save us?
And if God will not rescind His promise, can we walk away from our relationship with Him and effectively forfeit our salvation?
You’ll find the answers to these and other questions in this book, as well as Biblical answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about OSAS.
This study is for believers and non-believers alike. It describes three things in detail. What the Lord has done for us in the past, what He’s doing now, and what He’s preparing to do in the future. And it’s all free for the asking, no matter who we are or where we’ve come from. Feel free to down load this and share it with friends and family.
