Ezekiel 38 And Isaiah 17

Published: June 20, 2016 (Originally published: June 21, 2016)
Q

Do you think that Isaiah 17 will be fulfilled at the same time as the Battle of Ezekiel 38-39?

Isaiah 17:4 says that the glory of Jacob (Israel) will fade and his fat will waste away so it seems like Israel will become weak. But in verse 7, it says that they will turn back to God, matching with Ezekiel 38-39.

What do you make of this prophecy?

The Origin Of Rain Follow Up

Published: June 20, 2016 (Originally published: June 21, 2016)
Q

I have a question about your response in “The Origin of Rain.” In your response you said “Simple logic tells us that the rainbow God promised to Noah after the flood wouldn’t have been necessary for reassurance if they had often seen rain in the past. (Genesis 9:14-16) No, it was promised because the only time they’d ever seen rain everybody had perished. They were scared to death of it.”

This seemed logical when I first read it, and then a thought came to mind. “Why would God need to send this sign? Why couldn’t He have told Noah that it wouldn’t flood again? If only he and a few others survived the flood, couldn’t they just “pass down” the promise to future generations? I am not afraid of rain because I was taught not to fear it, couldn’t this have been possible of the survivors?”

I mean, Noah had enough faith to build the Ark, wouldn’t this same faith in God’s Word be good that it wouldn’t flood again?

Denying God

Published: June 17, 2016 (Originally published: June 19, 2016)
Q

My friend has accused me, and I admit I’m guilty as charged, of believing in the Hebrew God, Jesus and the Bible without considering every possible alternative god, theory, or ancient writing. He seems to think there any many Christian-like writings that preceded the Bible and therefore detract from its uniqueness.

I’ve tried to sum it all up for him with a bible based world view, and the need to be born again and sealed with the Holy spirit to be led to all truth but he thinks its a intellectual cop out. I don’t want to give up on him, but it may have to come to that point as everything is “yes, but …” for him. The one final thing I’m looking to provide for him is the uniqueness of Jesus. What He did that no one else or no other created entity or “god” could have done.

A Perfect Body?

Q

When we are raised (or raptured) and given the perfect bodies, will we be able to sin? Will we have the capacity for it or even the conception of it? Or even temptation? Thank you so much for answering questions, and may God bless you a thousand times!

Do Jewish People Go To Heaven When They Die?

Published: June 13, 2016 (Originally published: June 18, 2016)
Q

When Jewish person die, do they go to heaven or hell? Based on Salvation, I would think they unfortunately would go to hell because they rejected Jesus in their heart and His offer of salvation. However, I know the Jews are God’s chosen people, so sometimes I struggle with would he do that? I just don’t know how much Favor the Jews have with the Lord.

The Best Study Method?

Published: June 17, 2016 (Originally published: June 18, 2016)
Q

I have been following you for such a long time; and finally decided to ask a question I’ve long wondered about. You have become such an expert on answering scripture related questions; and I trust and respect your wisdom. Would you share with me the technique (method) you find most helpful in studying the Word? I’ve tried several methods and have lots of reference books, but still don’t seem to have a handle on the best way. I, too, believe time is short; and I want to learn all I can while I’m still here.

The Adulterous Wife And The Virgin Bride

Q

I know a Bible teacher there who holds a meeting once a week and I am very concerned about this doctrine he teaches. He says that God has a wife, and that wife is Israel. Next, he says that Christ has a separate Bride. I have never heard this before. Can you provide either confirmation or correction ?

Do We Reap What We Sow?

Published: June 13, 2016 (Originally published: June 16, 2016)
Q

My question is about sowing of seed and reaping. Do you believe it is Biblical to expect if I sow the seed of money I can expect a reaping of money? Or if I sow the seed of smiles will I reap smiles? The Bible does say you reap what you sow.

Careless Words

Published: June 13, 2016 (Originally published: June 17, 2016)
Q

Last night in our Bible study, we talked about judgment which I have no problems with at all. In regard to it, when we are faithful to confess our sins to God (say on a daily basis) for things we know are wrong such as envy, inappropriate words, hurtful actions, etc, will we be judged on them again when we see the Lord in the future? Since the Bible says we will be judged by every word or action, does this imply we are forgiven now but will be judged later or will God remove our transgressions as far as East is from West?
