5 Things You Should Know About How God Sees You

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I’m convinced most Christians don’t have a very good understanding of how God sees us. I’m not surprised about this because it’s really hard to for us to comprehend. God sees us so differently from the way we see ourselves and the way others see us, that there’s really no comparison. It’s like He and we are looking at two different people. And in a way that’s true because we can only see ourselves from our past experience, but He has chosen to see us now as we will be in the future when we’re with Him forever. So let’s set aside how we see ourselves for a moment and take a look at five things the Bible says about how God sees us.

Are We Hedging our Bets

Are We Hedging Our Bets?

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

It was the clearest message the Lord has given me in a long time.  I was in bed and half asleep when it came to me. Fearful of forgetting it, I got up and made a bunch of random notes and then went back to bed. When they still made sense the next morning I decided it must have really been Him. Here’s the message I received.

Judging Planet Earth

Commentary by Jack Kelley

The combination of the Rapture and the Battle of Ezekiel 38 will fill the world with anguish and uncertainty as Daniel’s 70th Week begins. Where did all those people go? How did Israel so utterly destroy that massive invasion force all by itself? How did all these things happen so suddenly?  Why didn’t somebody see this coming and do something to prevent it?

A Letter From James, Part 5. Conclusion

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

In this study we’ll conclude our survey of the the letter from James, half brother of Jesus. The original Apostles named him overseer of the Church in Jerusalem, a position he held until his death in 62AD. James probably wrote his letter around 50 AD or even a little before. The stoning of Stephen in 36 AD had led to the persecution and scattering of the young Church, which was still primarily made up of Jewish converts. This study will focus on chapter 5, the final chapter of his instructions to the scattered Church.

A Letter From James, Part 3

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

In part 3 we continue reviewing the instructions James gave to the early church on how to properly live the Christian life.

This time we’ll cover chapter 3. Let’s begin.

A Letter From James, Part 2

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

We continue our study of the letter from James. In part 1 we determined that the letter was written by James, the half brother of Jesus, around 50 AD when most of the Church was still of Jewish origin. They had been scattered throughout Israel and surrounding countries in the persecution that began after the stoning of Stephen in 36 AD, and James was sending what was probably the first letter ever written to the growing Christian community. This week we’ll look at chapter 2.

The Watchman

Commentary by Jack Kelley

Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade him from his ways, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. But if you do warn the wicked man to turn from his ways and he does not do so, he will die for his sin, but you will have saved yourself. (Ezekiel 33:7-9

The Great White Throne Judgement?

Q. I have a question regarding the Great White Throne Judgement. I would like to know the point of this judgement. If people who have rejected Christ in life and are currently in Hell awaiting the second death along with all those in the tribulation who have rejected him, then why have this judgement if they are already going to the lake of fire? It says in scripture that Hell gave up all her dead and they all faced judgement, but I do not understand the point of it.

Why Doesn’t The Bible Mention Islam?

Q. Given that Ishmael was a son of Abraham, God promised that he, also, would be great.  Yet, there is no mention in prophecy of the rise of Islam, growing from the people of Ishmael, and becoming the worlds greatest religion, second only to Christianity; and destined to become the world’s largest religion after the Rapture of the Church.  Why is that?

Confirming The Covenant

Q. Daniel 9:27 uses the word “confirm”:
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate”. (King James Version)
Question: do you think the word “confirm” is a hint that this covenant will be made two times, and that the antichrist will take part the second time by confirming it, maybe after Ezekiel 38-39?

Are Food Stamps OK For Believers?

Q. I have separated from my husband because he has refused to seek help for his drug addiction and living with him has become too dangerous for my children and me. I am going to school to be a nurse and money is very tight for us right now. Because of this, I have started using food stamps. I do not plan on using them for very long, but I am wondering if I’m not trusting God to take care of me by doing this.  I’m constantly hearing people at church put down people who are on welfare, saying we are lazy and just want a hand-out. It makes me feel so worthless sometimes. I cannot tell if I feel bad about using food stamps because God is convicting me, or if I just feel judged by the people in my church. What do you think about using food stamps?
