Colossians 3:25 gives me trouble. I know that just before it is written you will get your reward from him. But then it says whosoever does wrong will be paid for those wrongs. What about forgiveness?
I know that the raptured Saints will live in the New Jerusalem with glorified bodies during the millennium. My question concerns the tribulation Saints living on earth during the millennium in their natural bodies. Will persons entering the millennium with some sort of handicap enter with conditions such as missing limbs or mental disabilities? We read where there will be no more sadness, crying, or suffering during this 1,000 years. Will these people be changed or will live on earth during the millennium, after having gone through 7 years of Tribulation, make them more than happy? What is your opinion on this subject?
Some Christians believe that the spirit and soul go to heaven at the time of physical death. Others say that the spirit goes to heaven but the soul sleeps until the resurrection. I find this a confusing issue as I believe that the spirit and soul are in inseparable and both go to heaven. Is there Bible passages that clarify this?
In Luke 13:23-30 Jesus commands some followers who question Him about ‘Are there just a few who are being saved’ to “strive to enter through the narrow door”. Well, the word ‘strive’ sounds like ‘work’ to me and I thought we were saved by faith and not by works (Eph 2:8-9)? Could you explain this passage?
Everywhere you look in the Bible there’s 7 of something–and many times that 7 is divided in half, becoming 2 parts at 3 1/2. Jesus led his ministry for 3 1/2 years. Where do you think the other 3 1/2 is?
What constitutes the body, soul and spirit. Does the body include the subconscious? Is the soul your personality? Where does the Holy Spirit reside? Is your spirit your conscience? What goes to Heaven or Hell, your soul, your spirit or both?
