Again thank you so much for your knowledge and faith.
I have a question regarding the rapid growth of the emergent church and I wonder if you could explain this movement to me in more detail. I had always thought that the real Church would be the one falling away from the false teachings going on in organized religion today. Not falling away from OUR FATHER, but false religion. Thanks again.
1)What do you think about the pre-wrath rapture of the Church? I was pre-trib for such along time until I read the book by Marvin Rosenthal, “The Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church”. It made so much sense that just cannot see any other way. I would just like to know what you think about it and have you read the book.
2)If the Muslim’s messiah is the the anti-Christ then how does this go with the anti-Christ coming from the Holy Roman Empire?
I am puzzled by the current world situation if soon the prophesy of the Ezekiel war or about Damascus will taken place.
However, if the Ezekiel war or what was prophesied about Damascus will take place in the not too distant future, then when is in your opinion the rebuilding of the city of Babylon will take place, in the time table of end time scenario, in such away to prepare the city for the end time scenario of Zec 5:11?
Would you be able to comment on what the “pre-determined number” of Christians would be that would coincide with the rapture happening? In other words, does this (in Romans?) mean that once this number of believers is reached that no more people will be allowed into heaven and that this number will then be the signal to rapture? Someone once mentioned the number as 144,000…which seems pretty low. Thank you.
If marital unfaithfulness and/or marriage to an unbeliever are the only biblically acceptable reasons for divorce, then can I ever remarry?
My husband was physically and emotionally abusive to me…and after we had children he was including them in his abusive behavior as well. I wanted a divorce and told him so…many times. We tried counseling without success. Finally, he agreed to get a divorce…and he was the one who actually initiated the petition. I never fought it.
I have two questions in regards to the topic “Will We See Our Unborn Babies in Heaven?”. First: Isn’t using Psalm 139:13-16 taking that verse out of context, for even if life did not begin at conception, could God not also make us in our mothers wombs, and isn’t the point of that verse to talk about how much God cares for us and has planned out our life and not to define when human life starts?
Second: Is there any Scriptural proof that would say that before a child makes a decision they will go to heaven. Romans 10:9 says “if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” This would seem to say that babies will not go to heaven because they never confessed nor believed.
I have been wondering about this for a while now, and any answer you have would be much appreciated.
I was at a home school conference a couple of years ago and heard (a well known theologian) use one of the verses you used in this week’s commentary to support his replacement theology position:
The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.” (Psalm 110:1)
According to him this one verse sums it all up “Jesus will not return to earth until the Christians have made things on earth better and better by going forth and multiplying.”
I would appreciate your comments on what this verse really means because I know that the Bible teaches things here are going to get worse not better.
I have a question regarding tithing. My church has several different funds to which you can give. The building fund, cemetery fund, the pastors mission trip or to missions in general. I have always thought that I should give my 10% to the church budget and then anything that I want to give to the building fund or missions should be extra. Some people divide their tithe between the funds. Which is correct?
