What is God`s plan?

There are four main points in God’s plan:

1. Through the permission of evil, God's intelligent creation will learn the results of disobedience and sin. 
2. God will provide a way for the recovery of mankind and grant the willing an opportunity for everlasting life. This recovery is through the all atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
3. From among […]

If grace happened when Jesus died on the cross, what happened to everyone else in the Old Testament when they died?

The world of mankind includes all children of Adam – whether born before or after Jesus’ sacrifice. When father Adam sinned, he and all mankind were condemned to death. “One man’s trespass led to condemnation for all men,” Romans 5:18 (RSV).

What is the death which all mankind suffer? It is a state of oblivion – […]

Help me with my fear of death.

1 John 4:16 tells us about the character of God: "God is love." Two verses later we find out that "perfect love casts out fear." As we focus on God's character, we realize that His plans for all of mankind are good. 1 Timothy 4:10 even tells us that "…we have fixed our hope on […]

What is the gospel? Does the gospel have power? What is that power?

The gospel is defined in Galatians 3:8, “Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.” In other words, the gospel (literally meaning, “good news”) is the promise that all people will be blessed through Abraham's seed. The angel […]

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 […]

What does the Bible teach about where we go when we die? Do our souls sleep in the grave? In the resurrection, will everyone be resurrected on earth and live here forever?

First we need to understand that our whole being is a living soul. At the creation of man, the soul is defined. Genesis 2:7, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” The soul is the […]

Do believers have a higher position than the angels in the kingdom of God?

It sounds as if you are asking, “will Christians have a higher position in heaven than angels?” The answer is – yes and we don’t know.

There are two classes of Christians during the present period. They are represented as wise virgins and foolish virgins in that same parable (Matthew 25:1-13). The wise virgins are believers […]

The breath of man and beast are the same. But in Ecclesiastes 3:21, why does one go upward and another go downward to the earth?

“For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same. As one dies so dies the other; indeed, they all have the same breath and there is no advantage for man over beast, for all is vanity. All go to the same place (the grave). All came from the […]

Please explain Mark 8:36 in an easy way – understandable for my non-Christian friend…

Mark 8:36 “For what does it benefit a man to gain the whole world yet lose his life?”

We all have choices in our lives. We may choose to live for what the world offers – financial security/gain, possessions, fame, and power. Self becomes our main focus. Serving God and sacrificing for others is unimportant. This […]

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 […]
