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.
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 ?
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.
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?
Romans 8:28 tells us God is working everything together for the good of those who love him and “are called according to His purpose” What does “his purpose” mean? Do all things work for the good only for those for whom God has a special purpose; a special task?
My question relates to the priestly garments. Exodus 28:31-35 lists the garments for the High Priest to wear when officiating. But in Leviticus 16:4 the list for the Day of Atonement ceremony is different. What is the significance of that?
Re: No One Knows The Day Or The Hour I have a couple of questions. I always thought that the tribulation starts with the signing of the peace treaty the anti-christ makes with Israel. Am I wrong? Second, are you saying the Church will be here for the first 3 1/2 years but be gone the last 3 1/2 years? I always thought we would be out of here for the entire 7 years.
Thank you for all you do, I have learned so much from you. My question is this. How was it possible for Enoch and Elijah to go into the presence of God before their sin was paid for at the cross? I know there has to be an explanation, but I can’t figure this one out. Can you please help me to understand? Were they thrust forward in time somehow to the cross? That is the only thing my little mind can come up with. Thank You in advance for your help.
Is there something about the rapture that I and many others are missing? Perhaps you can bring some light to this. Many Christians, perhaps like me, believe that the pre trib rapture is sort of a Great Escape for people who don’t deserve to escape (like me) the hour of trial coming upon the world. It seems too easy. But perhaps we don’t see the rapture for what it really is. Is it true that the Davidic Kingdom cannot be set up on earth as long as the Church is on earth and that to remove the Church from the earth is the real reason for the rapture?
I heard a sermon about God’s blessings and success in our earthly life. The preacher said that evil spiritual beings and forces are more of an obstacle to God’s blessings than earthly circumstances. He said most times trying to live a life pleasing to God, although essential, isn’t enough. What is required to lead a successful Christian life and partake of all of God’s blessings is the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
