Guarding The Throne Of God

Published: June 26, 2016 (Originally published: June 27, 2016)
Q

I was reading your bible study titled “The Origin of Evil” where you state: “Satan’s original role was to head up the squadron of Cherubim who guard the Throne of God.” That sentence struck me odd and I can’t quite wrap my mind around it. In heaven and at the Throne of God, the holiest and most powerful place in existence where evil and nothing like it had ever existed before (I assume), who or what was the squadron of Cherubim guarding the throne from? Was there truly a threat of danger?

Do We All Have To Be Walking With The Lord?

Published: June 27, 2016 (Originally published: June 28, 2016)
Q

Did I understand you to say the Lord must call all who are born again but have strayed away back to faith before the rapture? If so then we are in for a very long wait. And I’m afraid that means the rapture won’t be anytime soon. And neither will the 1948 generation live to see the second coming, as they will be long dead by the time all who have strayed are called back to faith. In fact I think I’ve read the opposite on your site, that born again believers are turning to the world and false prophets at an alarming rate during the last days. Did I misunderstand you?

Ezekiel 36 And The Church

Published: June 20, 2016 (Originally published: June 23, 2016)
Q

Is the prophecy of the dry bones (Ezekiel 36:35-37) specifically about Israel, or does it also pertain to the church? How is this linked if at all??? I really want to know the truth. At this point, I think this is purely a prophecy concerning Israel, but I know too, that a lot of the Old testament mirror the things to come. One other question, How do we choose Christ and the gift of Salvation? Do we choose or does He do all the choosing for us?

My question is, what does John 21:15-24 mean? I do not understand this passage. What is it Jesus is saying here in the passage?

Confessing Past Sins

Published: June 20, 2016 (Originally published: June 22, 2016)
Q

What does the Bible say about a person’s past sins? What I mean is, I know that I am forgiven through my faith in Jesus and that God does not hold my sins against me any longer, but what about humans- what about the church? I am currently going through a situation where an ex-friend wants to tell the church of my past so that the heat can be taken off of her current sinning lifestyle. She knows that I have had experience in the area that she is sinning, and because she is feeling like people are judging her for her sins she wants to tell them about my past.

My fear is that I will be judged for my past- judged for sins that I have committed without seeing that I am a changed woman. So far she has not mentioned anything, but I am wondering if I need to confess my past sins to our mutual friends now or do I wait and see if she says anything then talk with them about it. Right now she says I’m denying my sin to others because I refuse to be revealing of my past to others. Like I said- this is all stemming from the fact that she confessed her sins and now is feeling the heat from the reactions of those around her. Any help is appreciated. Thanks so much for your time!

To Teach Or Not To Teach

Published: June 20, 2016 (Originally published: June 22, 2016)
Q

I am an adult Sunday School teacher. I read my Bible just about every day. I pray to God that my lesson each week will glorify Him, and I ask for His help when preparing my lessons.

When I started teaching over a year ago, I had support rather than criticism. Now it seems some in my class would rather criticize me than support me. My husband who is in my class said my lessons are great, and not to worry about trying to please everyone.

I have always gotten my facts right when teaching, but I made a mistake a couple of weeks ago. A man in my class corrected this mistake and I thanked him. But now that one mistake is being criticized by many. In fact during our revival, one man stood up and gave praise to a woman who used to be the adult Sunday School teacher who was visiting our church that evening. Then he made the remark, if you have a question about the Bible, call her, she really knows her Bible…..it was a direct attack on me for having messed up.

I feel at this time I have no alternative but to quit teaching the adults. Its a shame though, because I love teaching the adults, and spend about 10 hours each week in preparing the lessons because I enjoy it so much. Also, no one else at the church wants to teach. But, when I tried to prepare the lesson this week, I can’t get the criticism off my mind, and my heart is no longer into teaching this group at the church.

Different Doctrines

Published: June 20, 2016 (Originally published: June 25, 2016)
Q

Can you explain why different doctrines are being taught in churches rather than from the Bible itself. For example you teach from the Word of God and use cross references to what was said in the Word. You also give two or three scriptures that confirm what you are teaching. But we all see different churches saying what they’re teaching is doctrine but then give their opinion in contrast the truth. Is this a sign of the times we are in?

What Does “Dead In Christ” Mean?

Published: June 20, 2016 (Originally published: June 25, 2016)
Q

I have a question about 1 Thes. 4:16-18. From this it appears that the ‘dead in Christ’ are sleeping until the Lord comes to resurrect them at the time of the Rapture and unite them with their glorified bodies. I have always heard that the souls of the ‘dead in Christ ‘ are with Him or held apart in a place of paradise awaiting the Rapture or the Second coming. 1 Thess. 4:16 seems to contradict this. It appears that they are being held in the grave.
