Please explain Mathew 10:23, “When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.”

These instructions were given primarily to the twelve Apostles. Doubtless, they understood them to mean that their mission was not to stay long in a place. As persecution arose, and the people were unwilling to hear their message, they were to go to other cities and villages. The time for their special testimony of the Kingdom […]

Why was the temple destroyed by the Romans?

The Romans vengefully destroyed the temple in 70 AD to put down three rebellious Jewish factions. They burned it perhaps accidentally.  But the fire melted much of the gold in the temple which then seeped between the stones. Hence, to retrieve the gold, the soldiers pulled apart all the stones, thus inadvertently fulfilling Jesus’s prophecy in […]

What does Nahum 1:7 mean? "The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knows them that trust in him."

The book of Nahum is a prophecy against the city of Nineveh, the capital of Assyria (current day Mosul, Iraq). History records that the Assyrians were ruthless and cruel to their captives. Sadly, parts of Judea were under Assyrian control. ​

In God's judgment, it was time to avenge His people from Assyrian oppression.  Nahum described the […]

This question comes from Genesis 3, verse 15.  Satan, the ‘anointed cherub that covereth’ was the guardian angel appointed to watch over our first parents (Ezekiel 28:13-17). We know that he lured Eve into eating the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.  As a punishment, God pronounced that He would “put enmity (hostility) between you […]

Can Satan drive out Satan?

Yes, it is possible.  Satan can cast out Satan by promoting contradictory partial lies. His response to combat the legitimate increase of knowledge is to “transform” himself into an “angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14-15, 3, 1 Corinthians 15:24-26, Matthew 7:22-23.  He disguises himself as a scientific atheist; a missionary of eternal torment; a "spiritual […]

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 […]
