Welcome to our bi-weekly post where we provide Bible verses, answers and advice to the questions and concerns you have. During the course of the last two weeks readers have submitted their questions and today we are going to answer some of them. So please join us and feel free to chime in on the discussion in the comments section below this post.
Before we get into this week’s questions we would like to point out that you are helping to spread the Word of God by your continued submission of questions. Because of your ongoing participation these Q&A posts have been read thousands of times. Without your participation this section of our site would not exist. So if you have a Biblical or non-Biblical question you would like to ask, submit it now for our next edition of “Bible: Question, Answer and Discussion“.
Question: With all the Kenites, bad figs, in Israel today, why aren’t there more people speaking up about them. Not all of them are from the tribe of Juda.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Chuck.
You are absolutely correct and the timing of your question is outstanding considering the events being played out in the Middle East at this point in time.
The first thing most Christians loose sight of is there are a total of twelve tribes, not just one. Revelation 7 tells us 12,000 from each of the twelve tribes (totaling 144,00) will be sealed before the Tribulation can even start. So we know all twelve tribes exist today.
Dr. E. Raymond Capt has done a wonderful work on the migration of the twelve tribes for those interested.
Most people do not have any clue that the tribe of Judah has been infiltrated by the seed line of Satan. As you already know, Christ told us about this in Revelation 2:9, 3:9 where He stated, “I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”
To answer your question, people are not speaking out about the bad fig, those who claim to be of Judah but do lie because very few people in the world actually understand they exist to begin with. Why is this such a mystery to begin with? Because most churches do not teach about the Kenites and it is taboo to talk about such subjects in our society.
Question: My wife is thinking about breaking our marriage covenant, just because she is not happy. No fornication has taken place. She said God would forgive her even though she knows God hates divorce. Is a premeditated act forgiven? As everyone says now I will commit the sin and ask for forgiveness later. What does scripture say on her thinking.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Chris.
I am very sorry to hear you and your wife are experiencing some marriage difficulties. Let me comment on that if I may. I would like you and your wife to both ask yourselves what was it about the other person that really interested you when you first met each other. What turned that first glance into love?
Often times after we live with our spouse for awhile we become lazy and figure we have them so there is no longer any need to do the things we once did for them which truly captured their hearts. Some of us may have held the door of buildings and cars open for the love of our life. We may have complimented them daily and now instead of that we always tell them what they could do better. I could go on and on, but we are all guilty of doing this I am sure. Think about these types of things and talk to your wife about it. I know “with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).
As for your question, we cannot say if a premeditated act is forgiven only God is the Judge. But we do know God is a heart knower (Acts 15:8-9).
9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
10 “I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.”
No one can con God, He knows the true intent of our heart. If we try and rationalize our sin in our mind with the thought that God will forgive our sin after the fact, that is being very deceitful with our Father. The person would have to have a true change of heart and understand the action they took was dreadfully wrong.
Please turn your Bible with me to,
2 Peter 2:20-21
20 “For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.”
21 “For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.”
Once we come to the knowledge of the truth and we turn back to sin there is a very large price to pay. We should note, none of us are perfect and we are all sinners. But there is a big difference between the weakness of flesh and willfully sinning. You may be able to con man, but I guarantee you cannot con our Father.
Question: Is God in Control of the world at this time? And if so please give documentation.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Rochelle.
God is always in control. Let us document that. Please turn your Bible with me to,
“And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:”
God is the ultimate power. Romans 13:1 tells us, “there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God“. Even the rulers of the earth have been put into their positions by our Father. They all serve a purpose which essentially is the fulfillment of our Father’s Grand Plan (also reference Psalms 75:7).
While God is the ultimate power. Satan is the god of this world and “the whole world lieth in wickedness” (2 Corinthians 4:4, 1 John 5:19, Ephesians 2:2). God allows Satan and his children to fulfill the negative part of our Father’s plan. However, Satan and his children are only allowed to go so far, they do not have absolute power over the earth as God does.
A great example of this can be found in the book of Job. Let us turn there for a moment.
8 “And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?”
9 “Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?”
10 “Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.”
Satan is saying to our Father, sure Job is a great man because you are protecting him from me.
“And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.”
Notice, God has the power, but He turned it over to Satan. He allowed Satan to have a little control, but our Father drew a line in the sand. God told Satan not to place his hand on Job, meaning Satan was not allowed to kill Job. Documenting Satan can only accomplish what our Father will allow.
This is a very important topic. If we understand our Father controls even the leaders of our world including Satan, ‘whom shall we fear‘ (Psalms 27:1)?
In closing please turn with me to,
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Ultimately, we are talking about the Tribulation of Satan. What are we to do? Suit up with the whole armour of God so that we may stand against who? Satan. Who controls Satan? Our Father!
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Satan is the highest office of wickedness.
“Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”
The prince of this world is Satan and when he is cast from Heaven to earth by Michael, Revelation 12:9 will be our reality. It will be the beginning of the Tribulation. The Saints of Almighty God will be suited up with the whole armour of God to make a stand for our Father who is always in control! “Whom shall ye fear?”
We would like to thank our Father for giving us this platform in order to spread His most precious Word. We would also like to thank our readers for submitting their questions and giving us the opportunity to share them with the audience.
