Jesus is looking for those that NEED healing and freedom! It’s okay to ask questions!!!!! Get your questions in this afternoon!!!

 

IS IT OKAY FOR A CHRISTIAN TO HAVE A GUN?

 

Q: My hubby and I are thinking about getting our CCW and stuff but we have been met with a lot of opposition from fellow believers about it not being right. I think I saw you post a while back about bearing arms and being able to protect your family. What are your thoughts on this?

 

A: I think it’s definitely ok to bear arms for family protection and hunting if necessary. The key is to do it as an individual, not to form a personal militia. Let God handle governments and appoint whom He will in authority over the land.

 

SONS OF GOD OR ANGELS?

 

Q: How do you know that the sons of God in Genesis 6 were humans, not angels?

 

A: Here are scriptures that refer to humans as sons of God:

 

Genesis 6:2

that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Job 1:6

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.

John 1:12

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of Godeven to them that believe on his name:

Romans 8:19

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Philippians 2:15

that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons ofGod, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

1 John 3:2

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

 

Job doesn’t necessarily mean angels could be saints like Enoch, Adam, Abel, etc

 

Jesus said angels do not marry Jesus said last days will be exactly like Noah’s day

 

Matthew 22:30

For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

 

If you want to understand Genesis 6, look at today.

 

A culture of superstars, stemming from sexual irresponsibility.

 

WHEN WAS THE WATER CREATED IN GENESIS?

Q: Is Genesis 1:2 actually referring to water or the Holy Spirit? God didn’t form the waters until vs 9 and vs 1 tells us the Earth was completely void.

A: It never said He formed the waters, it just assumed the water was there from vs 2. So he created the waters on day 1, but separated them from the sky on day 2, then He gathered them into the seas on day 3.

 

WHAT ARE THE REWARDS OF BEING A SUBMISSIVE WIFE?

 

Q: What are the rewards of being a submissive wife??

A:

  1. God rewards you with more eternal rewards In heaven.
  2. Your husband listens to God more because he doesn’t have to answer to you anymore, so it pushes him to actually seek God’s authority.
  3. This brings a great natural blessings and good decision making  in the home.
  4. Children supernaturally fall in line in submission. They also see a good example In the natural.
  5. Curses of rebellion, disobedience, and their demonic, spiritual, mental, and physical effects are broken Off.
  6. Your husband might get saved And believe the Word.
  7. The world sees the gospel actually lived out because the Word of God is no longer blasphemed.
  8. The home becomes a peaceful and attractive place of Gods order.
  9. Less stress for everyone.
  10. More heartfelt honor, affection, and praise from her husband.
  11. Husband can’t blame you for anything anymore, all you did was obey.
  12. Husband finds his anointing and takes life more seriously, because he now has responsibility without debate.

 

WHY DO MEN COMMIT ADULTERY?

 

Q: Why do men cheat?

 

A: Though shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife (10th commandment, Exodus 10:17).

 

Covetousness is idolatry (Colossians 3:5).

 

At its core adultery proves that you are covetous, and you worship something other than God – self, sex, or pride. We are commanded to control our heart’s desires. If we cannot do that, we have substituted God for an idol.

 

WHY KEEP THE LAW IF CHRIST DIED FOR SIN?

 

Q: If you’re not aiming to be justified by keeping the law, then what is the purpose for keeping it?

 

A: If we have already established that keeping the law of God does not bring salvation, but Jesus does, then why do we obey God? First reason is because there is no one better than God to obey. Everybody obeys someone. If God is the best, why not obey Him? There are several other reasons to obey God’s laws. You can start just to please God by obedience, for maximum rewards in the kingdom of heaven, and to live a wise life on earth. To love God with the heart soul mind strength, and to love my neighbor like myself. Also, God’s laws make the most sense and they work the best.

 

I don’t keep the ceremonial cultural Hebrew laws, but I do try to keep the royal law, and the law of Liberty / moral law (10 commandments). I also get a lot of wisdom from natural and scientific laws that God instituted in the earth. I also obey government laws if they don’t go against Gods laws.

 

When we read the bible we have to use context clues to determine which law is spoken of. Jesus, James, John, Paul all mentioned several different categories of law in the New Covenant. There’s the royal law, the moral law, the cultural/ceremonial law that was added for transgressions, government laws and ordinances, law of spirit, law of sin and death, etc… Once you determine which law is being referenced, then you can figure out the purpose of it.

 

Jesus took care of our salvation, but that doesn’t mean that ALL of Gods laws have been changed and done away with. The only law that was removed and nailed to the cross was the ceremonial/cultural law that made Hebrew culture and holidays worth keeping.

 

But the royal laws of love didn’t change, the Ten Commandments didn’t change. It’s still against Gods law to steal and kill and lie. I can’t have sex with my neighbors wife and then say “Jesus is my not committing adultery.” The law of gravity is still here. I can’t jump off a cliff because of the new  covenant gospel. I still have to obey governors and magistrates and pay taxes right? So it’s important to know which law the bible is speaking of by using context clues.

 

What the cross did was remove the enmity between man and God, and remove the enmity between Jew and Gentiles. The law that separates Israel from Gentiles is the cultural and ceremonial laws. Does God want Gentiles to sleep with your wife? No. Does God need Gentiles to celebrate the feast of booths and get circumcised? No.

 

If you take an honest look, the difference between the different types of laws is very clear. Gentiles Christians  are not allowed to blaspheme,  worship idols, lie, steal, etc… The reason the cultural and ceremonial law was nailed to the cross is so that Jew and Gentiles can be one in Christ. But the majority of God’s laws have not been done away with and are still worth obeying for the sake of honoring Him, pleasing Him and walking in wisdom.

 

 

IS THE SYNAGOGUE THE SAME AS CHURCH?

Q: Hey bro….I have been praying about “church” lately…when Jesus preached in the synagogue is this synonymous to the church we attend on Sunday?

A: No not really because Jesus and the Apostles and Paul went to reach out to Jews who worshipped on the Sabbath. Sabbath is the day of rest and a lot of people went into the temple and synagogues on those days. However the temples were opened more than just one day a week. They were open all week.

The Sunday meeting was derived from Roman Catholic mass, which came from pagan forms of worship.

Not that it’s wrong to worship on Sunday, We can worship any day as long as we follow the biblical discipleship model instead of the one based on Roman Catholicism

But it’s still important to honor the Sabbath and keep it holy no matter what day we meet as believers.

 

WHAT DOES REVIVAL LOOK LIKE?

Q: What is your take on revival? what does it look like?

A: Revival is when the Body of Christ repents from idolatry and turns their hearts back to God. That leads to fathers turning their hearts to children and children turning back to their fathers – holiness and family becomes priorities. Also the disobedient return back to the Wisdom of God. When the Body is purified, prayer and worship of God becomes central. Power flows much quicker through the Body so unbelievers are able to get saved, healed, delivered, and discipled.

 

 

ARE THREESOMES IN GOD’S WILL?

 

Q: Are 3sums against the will for a married couple? I know the Bible says a man shall not lay with another man, but this isn’t a man. Also if the husband and wife are in agreement with it is it justified or am I looking out of context?

A:  I believe looking at the 10th commandment we can see that threesomes are against the will of God. Though shall covet thy neighbors wife. We definitely have been commanded to take control of our thoughts and desires just as much as our actions when it comes to the wife of another man. I think it has a lot to do with thankfulness, and being content with the gift that God has given you in life. Also, we can look at all the example of men that had multiple women in the bible. Everyone that did it paid a high price as far as violence and chaos in their family for the next few generations. So it’s definitely not justified even if it’s culturally acceptable, or if the husband and wife agree to disobey God. It’s still disobedience.
