God made Adam and Eve in His own image, Genesis 1:26-28 (NKJV). The image of God does not refer to His physical likeness. It refers to God’s spiritual likeness. God is all loving, just, wise and powerful. Perfect man is a manifestation of these attributes. Sinful mankind has been losing God’s image for over 6,000 [...]
Hebrews 12:22-24 (NKJV), “But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, [...]
All nations are blessed through Abraham. Are the Gentiles named as a blessed people? are the Israelites?
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
What a wonderful question, and the answer is YES! Here is the testimony in God’s Word: · Isaiah 11:9 – “They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.” (Also Habakkuk 2:14.) · Jeremiah 31:34 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
