|161||No one who puts his hand to the plow....||Luke 9:59||Val||214192|
|Some did not want to follow Jesus on His terms. Some believe the father was still alive and this one wanted to put off following Jesus until his father died. Luke 9:59 And He said to another, "Follow Me." But he said, "Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father." Sincerely, Val|
|162||Before the new testament what was there?||Heb 1:1||Val||214190|
|God spoke to His people through His prophets.
Heb 1:1 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways,
Heb 1:2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world
|163||Demon leaving and coming back....||Luke 11:23||Val||214188|
|In other words if a man is delivered from demon possession and does not fill himself with Jesus then he is in danger of the demon returning. A person cannot remain neutral. He is either for Jesus or against him. Luke 11:23

2 Sam 7:12 "When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish his kingdom.
Something that will help you in answering your questions is to look at the cross references for the particular verse in question. They will shed light on the verse in question. Scripture is the best interpreter of scripture.
|165||proclaim the year of the Lords favor??||Luke 4:21||Val||214184|
|Christ is reading from Isaiah. He says in verse 21 that He is the fulfilment of this passage. In other words He is the Messiah.
Luke 4:18 "THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME,
BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR.
HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES,
AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND,
TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED,
Luke 4:19 TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD."
Luke 4:20 And He closed the book, gave it back to the attendant and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on Him.
Luke 4:21 And He began to say to them, "Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."

|Could you cite a specific passage please so that we may look at it. Sincerely, Val|
|167||Sins are responsible for sickness?||Mark 2:3||Val||214180|
|This passage shows that Jesus had the authority to forgive sins and the authority to heal. Sincerely, Val|
|168||The use of question in Bible's text?||Psalm||Val||214152|
|Hopefully it would accomplish a careful, thoughtful reading of the word. By asking questions it causes your mind to think and grasp what is being said. It causes you to look at the context of the passage. It slows you down to where you really look and remember what is being said. It shows you who the author is, the recepients, the purpose for writing, the historical and cultural context. Repeated topics form the theme of the chapter and book. Sincerely, Val|
|169||Why did Jesus fold His Napkin/Facecloth?||John 20:7||Val||214149|
|Dear Pattycake, Since the scripture does not provide an explanation we can just say what it says and that is that it was rolled up in a place by itself. Sincerely, Val|
|170||Does Jesus die for Gentile's sins too?||Gen 18:18||Val||214145|
|The first mention is in Genesis 18:18.
Christ the Messiah is the same God of the Old Testament. When we look at Jesus we are looking at God. He called himself the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. His line can be traced back to Abraham. He chose Abraham and his descendants to be His people and He would be their God. He said in you, Abraham, all the nations of the earth would be blessed. This is referring to the fact that when Christ the Messiah came, people would be saved who called upon His name. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
In bible study we consider the whole counsel of God, 66 books to know Him and His plan of redemption. Read all of the bible. There are some believers who make it a practice to read the bible through at least once a year. It can be read through in about three months. Before making final conclusions we have to read all 66 books. Sincerely, Val
|Dear John, Thats interesting since his website says it holds to the doctrinal statement of the Dallas Theological Seminary where Dr. McGee obtained some of his education. I have never heard him say that and I listened to him for about 20 years. I would like to know the context of the passage he was discussing when he said that. I have his volumne of the whole bible commentaries. I know there are the tulip points. I wonder if he held to the five points. Many people agree with three points. I don't know if people call them calvinists. I know many people hold to the sovereignty of God but do not label themselves calvinists. Just wondering. Thanks, Val|
|Dear C.S.; Welcome to the forum. 1 and 2 Thessalonians are the first writings on the rapture. There are many books written about this topic but I find the best book is the bible itself. There is an inductive study method which uses the bible as the main learning tool. In depth studies of the books of the bible can be found at Precept.org. I have studied Thessalonians and it was a wonderful study and highly recommend it. It takes time and dedication to study this way but it is well worth the cost. Sincerely, Val|
|Dear John, What makes you say Dr. McGee was a Calvinist? Just wondering. Sincerely, Val|
|Your Welcome, I had to search for the answer too. It was a good question from Beja. Sincerely, Val|
|Dear Beja, We can lovingly discuss why some people look forward to a rapture by understanding the scriptures that provide that foundation. A commentary at Preceptaustin that uses scripture to address the “first resurrection” is provided by Dr. Grant Richison.
"This is the first resurrection".
The New Testament uses the word “resurrection” 40 times. It always refers to physical, bodily resurrection except in Luke 2:34.
The “first resurrection” is not the first chronological resurrection because Christ was the first to rise from the dead. “Many” rose from the dead when Christ rose (Matthew 27:52-53).
The “first” resurrection is in contrast to the “last” resurrection (20:12-13). The word “first” carries the idea of “before.” All the righteous dead are raised before the resurrection of the wicked dead at the end of the 1000 years.
The resurrection of the righteous comes in phases (1 Corinthians 15:23). Christ rose first, then the “many,” then the church, then the Tribulation saints and finally the Old Testament saints (Isaiah 26:19-21; Ezekiel 37:12-14; Daniel 12:2-3). – Dr. Grant C. Richison. For a complete reading go to Preceptaustin.org and follow the link from Revelation to Dr. Richison.

|Dear Doc, that is a beautiful poem and picture of our hope, Sincerely, Val|

|Dear Bibleman, Welcome to the forum. Its is a custom here to mark a followup question to someone as a note so that it leaves the front page for original questions. I am thinking John may be preparing for Sunday service and will get back to you. Let me add if I may that the type of interpretations of the prohecy passages such as Revelation and Daniel as well as other verses from other books can be found at Preceptaustin.org. Just search for Revelation 20 and it will give you an explanation as to why allegory is used in interpretation of this passage. There are I believe three or four different methods used to interpret prophecy and it gives a list of the commentators and their preferred method. Let us all agree to disagree with gentleness and respect. I believe our brother John was just saying this passage is a difficult passage to interpret and that many well studied respected scholars differ on their interpretive views therefore it is not unusual for us to disagree on such passages. Sincerely, Val|
|178||Can one pray after his/her death?||1 John 3:2||Val||214086|
|179||Can one pray after his/her death?||1 John 3:2||Val||214083|
|Dear Bibleman, thank you for the passage. When looking at this topic; praying to someone outside of the true God we can see from this scripture that this would be displeasing to the true God.
Is 42:8 "I am the LORD, that is My name;
I will not give My glory to another,
Nor My praise to graven images.
We see an example of this from the passage you supplied. These prohets of Baal were put to death. This was divine judgment from the true God. It is a dangerous thing to put anyone or anything in the place of the true God.
1 Kin 18:40 Then Elijah said to them, "Seize the prophets of Baal; do not let one of them escape." So they seized them; and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.
Notice how many of them died that day.
1 Kin 18:22 Then Elijah said to the people, "I alone am left a prophet of the LORD, but Baal's prophets are 450 men.
|180||Why call Christ "Lamb" in Rev 6:16||Rev 6:16||Val||214081|
|Dear Kent, Using this verse I looked at the cross references for it and this verse was provided Phil 2:10 so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
Phil 2:11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
I believe this verse refers to the time that everyone will give Christ the respect He deserves. I seem to remember that this does not mean that everyone is saved but that there will come a time when everyone will acknowledge Him for who He is.
