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: I don’t know how to reconcile passages in scripture like Psalm 91:3 with what I see happening to our brothers and sisters (even children) in Christ today, where they are being tortured and beheaded. Can you help me understand?
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: This is a very good question Kaye, one I can see a lot of people having difficulty grasping.
It is important to understand what we see today on TV is nothing new. Christians have been suffering and dying for our Father since the dawn of this age of flesh though I do believe there has been an escalation. Please turn your Bible with me to,
9 “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:”
What were they slain for? The Word of our Father and it will continue until the return of Christ.
The age of flesh we currently find ourselves in was brought about due to the fall of Satan in The First Earth Age. This age of flesh is necessary for our Father to see who will stand with Him and who will stand with Satan. With that, we should understand this age also provides us with free will where we are born innocent with no recollection from The World That Was. It is because of this that terrible things happen in this world. Our Father allows Satan and his children to fulfill the negative aspects of our Father’s Letter and unfortunately this means good people suffer.
While there are plenty of verses like Psalms 91:3 that tell us God will protect us, there are also a lot of verses documenting we will suffer for Christ sake as well. Listen to the Word’s of Christ,
18 “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.”
19 “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”
Jesus Christ was perfect and they hated Him, beat Him and then killed Him. Can we really expect not to suffer a little as well? There is something else we need to understand. Our Father has an Election who has what I will call limited free will. They have free will for the most part, however our Father can intervene into their life to lead, guide and direct them to accomplish His will if He deems. I believe a lot of the verses in the Bible about God’s protection are primarily, but not only directed at His Election.
To be quite blunt, there are a lot of people who say they are Christians, but they really do not follow what the Bible says or they listen to traditions of men which essentially attempts to void God’s Word. Having said that, who do you think our Father is more likely to protect?
God’s Word is very real, it is not make-believe or about fluff that makes us feel good. We need to take the good and understand there is bad as well.
No matter what we endure in this life whether it is good or bad we need to really grasp the idea this age is a blink of an eye compared to our Father’s Eternal time clock. While some Christians will unfortunately suffer what does His Word say about that? Please turn your Bible with me one more time and read the Word’s of Christ.
10 “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
11 “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.“
12 “Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”
Question: Does the Bible speak on race relationships?
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Anthony.
I do not believe we can document this subject in God’s Word which leads me to believe if God was against it He would have declared it. God did tell Solomon and the Israelites not to take wives that were foreign to them. Why? Please turn your Bible with me to,
1 Kings 11:2
2 “Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.”
God’s reasoning was not because they were of another race, instead our Father knew the Israelites would end up accepting the gods of these foreign woman and of course He was right and they did.
Question: Hi. We are told that the beast system will get a deadly wound. In your opinion do you think that with what is going on right now Russia, China not going along with “western” powers as far as policies go is the beginning stages or the characters involved with the breaking of the new world order (beast system) the Kenites want? Thank you.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Amandio thank you for the question.
We do not have the one world government that will receive a deadly wound just yet. We need Syria to fall and Iran to be attacked as well. Additionally, we do not have ten clay kings which are the ten kings of the earth in power just yet (Revelation 17).
Russia and China are not bucking any trends. They do seem to stand against the West at times and I am sure many will recall China saying if the U.S. attacks Syria it would result in world war 3. Well the U.S. has attacked Syria not only through their proxy ISIS, but the U.S. itself has been dropping bombs on Syria as well. Russia who claims to be the good guy in all of this is doing the same thing the United States is… Dropping bombs on Syria.
The West, Russia and China all have banks controlled by the international banking system which is a part of the global structure. With that said, they are already controlled opposition. The children of Satan only have a few nations left to conquer and those are the nations we see being attacked.
Remember, by their fruits, not their words you will know them. This goes for all aspects of life. While we hear rumors of world war 3 between the U.S., Russia and China we instead see them all working together to remove leaders of nations who will not go along with the globalist agenda.
Amandio we brought more information along these lines forward in the following studies. We discussed how world leaders are calling for a global government including those nations who claim to be against the West. The three links below will really help you and one is a video. Take your time with them and I think they will offer some more perspective for you.
