Question: What does God want from us as Christians?

He wants your love and for you to have knowledge of His Word. (Hosea 6:6) Question: Where does it speak of the healing Word in the bible? In several places it speaks of the healing Word. Here are a few scriptures to help you out. (Psalm 107:20, Psalm 147:15-18, II Kings 20:4-5, Matthew 8:8) Question: Where can I find the Old Testament laws of divorcement and do they apply to us today? You will find them in (Deuteronomy 24:1-5) You can also find part of your answer in the New Testament (Matthew 19:5-9). Yes they would apply to us today. Remember that divorce can come about for many good reasons, and upon repentance will be forgiven by the Heavenly Father. Question: Can you tell me where it says that judgment will be on the church first or starts at the pulpit and what does it mean? You will find it in in the book of Peter. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? (I Peter 4:17) Peter is saying that judgment must start at the church because that is where God's Word is supposed to be taught. The problem is that many churches are not teaching the truth of the Word, and judgment will begin there first. Peter goes on to say if judgment begins with the church, just think what will happen on judgment day to those who do not obey or study God's Word at all. I would not want to be one of those preachers or teachers who mislead the people with false teachings and traditions of men. God will come down on them very hard at judgment day. Question: What scripture in the bible says that God gives some people "eyes not to see" and "ears not to hear" the truth and why would He do this? Also, does this apply to people today? Romans 11:8 says that God has given them the "spirit of
Gospel to the world

slumber," eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear unto this day. We will also read of this in Isaiah 29:10. Yes this would apply to us today and is very obvious in many people. Why does He do this? Because many people cannot handle the truth. They are so wrapped up in traditions of men that when they hear a truth in the Word they just blow-it-off. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (II Timothy 4:4) Even if they accept the truth, chances of them of sharing it with others are slim to none. God opens up truths to the Word to those who will believe them and take action on them sharing what they have received with others. But we must be able to discern truth form tradition and false teachings. To do this we must fully search the scriptures as it is written. Question: How do we know if we receive the comforter, or the gift of the Holy Spirit? Also, how can we tell if someone has the gift of the Holy Spirit? The book of John would explain it best. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. (John 16:13) The spirit of truth (Holy Spirit), will guide you to all truth. You can tell if someone has the gift of the Holy Spirit if they are sharing or teaching the truth. If they are filling your head with traditions of men and false teachings, I would question whether they had the Holy Spirit or not. They may have the "spirit of slumber" (Romans 11:8), or may have a different spirit within. Satan turns the minds of many through false teachings! Question: Where does it say that some were chosen by God before the foundation of the world? You will find it in the book of Ephesians. According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love. (Ephesians 1:4) Question: Is there any scripture that says animals have souls, I cannot find any?

Great question. I think there are several different opinions on this one. I believe you are correct in saying there is no scripture that says that animals have a soul, but in my opinion, if they did, I do not think it would be the same as our soul. We know that there will be animals in the new Kingdom in the next world age here on earth, but on the other hand, in the book of Genesis, man was given dominion over the animals. God also created us in His image and the image of the angels, not the image of the animals, which would also be a clue that we have a different soul. We can also refer to Genesis 1:21-24 and Genesis 2:7. Reference in the Hebrew Strong's #2416 and the meaning of "living" (chay), pertaining to the creation of animals in Genesis 1:21-24. Now reference Hebrew Strong's #5315 and the meaning of "soul" (nephesh), pertaining to the "breath of life" that God (blew into the his nostrils) when He created man in Genesis 2:7. I think that "living" and "soul" here are different when pertaining to man and creatures of the earth. Although you may notice that at the end of Genesis 2:7, it says man became a "living soul," (chay nephesh). This is where I believe some make the connection that our souls are the same as the animals, or that animals have a soul. Just my opinion, I hope this will help! Question: Is there any scripture that says how the bible came about and if it is the Word of God? You can find how the bible came about in the book of Timothy. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (II Timothy 3:16) Question: Was Jesus created in the first world age or has He been here since the beginning of time? Jesus is the Word and God, and is the beginning of time. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1) What are Christian saints according to the Bible? The word saint comes from the Greek word "hagios" which means consecrated to God, holy, sacred, pious." It is almost

always used in the plural, saints. Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much harm he did to Your saints at Jerusalem. (Acts 9:13) Now as Peter was traveling through all those regions, he came down also to the saints who lived at Lydda. (Acts 9:32) And this is just what I did in Jerusalem; not only did I lock up many of the saints in prisons. (Acts 26:10) There is only one instance of the singular use and that is: Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:21) In Scripture there are 67 uses of the plural saints compared to only one use of the singular word saint. Even in that one instance, a plurality of saints is in view every saint. (Philippians 4:21) The idea of the word saint is a group of people set apart for the Lord and His kingdom. There are three references referring to godly character of saints; that you receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints. (Romans 16:2) For the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ. (Ephesians 4:12) But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. (Ephesians 5:3) Therefore, Scripturally speaking, the saints are the body of Christ, Christians, the church. All Christians are considered saints. All Christian are saints; and at the same time are called to be saints. 1 Corinthians 1:2 states it clearly, To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy. The words sanctified and holy come from the same Greek root as the word that is commonly translated saints. Christians are saints by virtue of their connection with Jesus Christ. Christians are called to be saints, to increasingly allow their daily life to more closely match their position in Christ. This is the Biblical description and calling of the saints. Question: Where does it say that Satan comes in peace at his return? He not only comes peacefully, but he comes prosperously. You can read about it in the book of Daniel. Satan as the vile person and the little horn. Daniel 8:9, 8:25, 11:21, 11:24. He comes in peace pretending to be Christ and will deceive many. How? In Daniel 11:24 it explains that he will enter the richest areas of the

land and take the property and wealth of the rich and scatter it among the people. That will make you pretty popular with a lot of people that are just getting by day to day and paycheck to paycheck. Question: Can you explain Matthew 24 where it says one will be taken and one left behind? The subject of the chapter is the return of Anti-Christ and the return of Christ. Christ warns us that the Anti-Christ returns first and compares it to the time of Noah. Just as the waters took away the people, so shall the anti-Christ come first to rapture (gather up and take away) the one in the field. In verse 13 of Matthew 24, Christ tells us that those who endure till the end shall be saved. After the tribulation of anti-Christ the true Christ shall appear. Mark 13:11-13 also tells us that we will be delivered up before anti-Christ to testify against him with the help of the Holy Spirit. It also confirms that those who endure till the end shall be saved. Question: Can you give me scripture where it says God is against witchcraft, physics and fortune tellers? You will find it in the Old Testament book of Deuteronomy 18:10-12. God finds this type of practices an abomination. Question: Are we all sinners according to God and is there scripture that says we are? Yes we are all sinners. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: (Romans 3:23-24) We have a study topic titled "Were all sinners" that may help you.
