What is the Abrahamic Promise?

Genesis 22:17-18,  God said, “I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore…and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.”​

Who were the heirs of the promise?

Only Isaac […]

How will people sit with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom (Matthew 8:11)?

What is the Kingdom in this verse? Jesus referenced the kingdom earlier in Matthew 6:10, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is done in heaven.” Jesus was teaching an earthly salvation (for mankind) as well as a heavenly salvation (for His followers who make a covenant by sacrifice).​

Two salvations were […]

What are the real things we can do today to get to paradise? Only according to the Bible.

Three Scriptures use the word paradise. So to determine the way to get there, we need to identify where it is.

Luke 23:43, “Verily, I say to you today, you will be with me in Paradise.” Rotherham, one of the more accurate translations, places the comma after the word today. On that very day, Jesus was […]

What does 2 Thessalonians 1:8 mean? Will Jesus take vengence and burn up mankind?

First, notice that the Scripture does not say that any person is being burned by the “flaming fire.” It declares how the Lord's presence would be revealed.​

The fire is a symbol. Look at Zephaniah 3:8, 9 (NASB), “Therefore wait for Me,” says the LORD, “Until the day I rise up for plunder; My determination is […]

When the people that had done evil are resurrected, will they die in the lake of fire and cease to exist? Or God will do something else?

John 5:28, 29 (ESV), “all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment.”

The concept of judgment includes a trial and a verdict. Mankind is not currently on trial.  All are […]

Who was Shiloh in the Bible?

The person Shiloh is only referenced once in the Bible. Genesis 49:10 (ASV), “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the obedience of the peoples be.” Shiloh is Jesus. This is a prophecy which began its fulfillment at Jesus’ first […]

Why are we told to pray for enemies and then the Bible talks about having our enemies crushed under our feet?

“But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those […]

Please explain John 10:16, "I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd."

The context of John 10:16 reveals that Jesus is the Shepherd of the Little Flock. These are His chosen sheep who will work with Him throughout all eternity upon their resurrection. This sheep class, His Church, is now being called to be sacrificed just as the Lamb of God was sacrificed, “laying down their lives […]

What is the tree of life?

The tree of life was planted in the middle of the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:9). It supplied what was necessary for Adam's life to continue. When Adam sinned, he lost access to the tree of life so that he would not live forever (Genesis 3:22-24).

This tree of life is mentioned several times in the […]
