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: Is there a study on the courses of Abia?
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Jim. We currently do not have a Bible study on the course of Abia. However, Dr. Bullinger has done a great work on this subject and I am going to refer you to that work for now.
Appendix 179 in the Companion Bible
179. Parallel Datings of The Times of Our Lord, Dates of The Begetting, The Nativity, and The Course of Abia
This link will jump you to the specific section concerning the “Course of Abia“.
Question: Since God never had a beginning or was never created, then obviously He has always been in existence. Since He created everything and everyone, then all that He created had a beginning. Which to me would indicate there had to be some amount of time that God was alone until He decided to create all that He did. Am I wrong to ponder this? I am not saying I am right or on to something. But it seems to make sense or am I missing something? Thanks for any input on this thought.

Answer: Lance, thank you for the question. I think anytime we think about our Father that is a good thing and I am sure He appreciates it. The thing concerning this subject is time itself. Time truly means nothing to God because He does not age and that is something we cannot wrap our minds around in the flesh because everything around us has a beginning and ending. We know a day with the Lord is as a thousand years to man (2 Peter 3:8).
I am not sure if you realize it or not Lance, but there was an earth age before the one we presently find ourselves in. Before the age of flesh mankind dwelt in their spiritual bodies which are our true bodies. Satan rebelled against God in that earth age and that has brought us into this age of flesh where we have been placed in order to make up our minds who we will follow, God or Satan. We have a couple Bible studies on this topic that I think would be beneficial to you. I am going to leave you with these studies because I think they will help to answer some of what you are asking here.
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.
If you would like to ask a question submit it for the next edition of this post. Additionally, you can continue and add to the discussion in the comments section below.
