What does the Bible say about the 2nd resurrection (general resurrection)? I'm given to understand that all will rise, my question is; what does the Bible say about when we rise, will we be made as new again or will we still remember our past lives including family and friends? If we are made anew and don't have any memories of the past life, how will we be judged if we don't have those memories? Many thanks, I look forward to the response and I am grateful for your app! (South Africa)

Summary: If the human race could not remember their past lives, it would be fruitless to resurrect them. They would only fail to obey again. Their memories with sin will teach them “to love righteousness [...]

Revelation 22:20 (WEB) He who testifies these things says, “Yes, I come quickly.” Amen! Yes, come, Lord Jesus. Yahshua (Jesus) promised that he would come QUICKLY. But it's past 2000 years already. Isn't Yahshua (Jesus) late in his second coming? Or is the word Quickly wrongly translated in English language? (India)

As your question suggests, the original Greek word “quickly” means “shortly, that is, without delay, soon, or (by surprise) suddenly,…” (from Strong’s Concordance).  Now, let's look at 2 Peter 3:3-9 (Young’s Literal Translation), “This first [...]

Genesis 1:31 (WEB), "God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. There was evening and there was morning, a sixth day." This ending statement is made after each creative day. But on the Seventh day the statement of "there was evening and there was morning, a seventh day" is not made by Elohim Yahweh. Why? What's the meaning or implication of this? (India)

The seventh day is not yet finished. Mankind has been living through the seventh day.  As you noted, Yahweh uses, “there was evening and there was morning” at the end of each of the six creative days.  Yahweh [...]

I'm in a church where the pastor controls everything. The pastor doesn't allow the leadership to make suggestions or contribute to church matters. There are no elders, no deacons and board. The leaders don't have any idea of how the church finances are managed. The pastor makes all the decisions and wouldn't allow anyone to question him. Is this biblical? (Australia)

Without knowing the details, we feel unable to judge. However, the Bible does teach how a church should be organized. First, the congregation should study the structure of the New Testament church. All Christian members were [...]

In the full Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) Yahweh is an ELOHIM (God) OF WAR. But his only Son Yahshua in the Greek Scriptures (New Testament) is a PROPHET OF PEACE. Why this clash or dual personalities of Father and Son? (India)

There are “times and seasons” (Acts 1:7) in God’s plan. Ecclesiastes 3:1 explains, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven” Verses 2-8 make contrast between being born and [...]
