The Night is Far Spent


Paul said in Acts 14:22, “…that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.” The church is being persecuted now and has ALWAYS been in tribulation. We’ve been in the beginning of sorrows since the resurrection! This explains why Paul could say, “The night is far spent, the day is at hand” nearly 2,000 years ago. Paul expected Christ’s imminent return. How about you? Are you ready?



 

Where is God’s Word?

I’m often asked what Bible version I recommend or why I use the King James Bible. While the subject of textual criticism is vast, I want to summarize why I believe we can hold in our hands the accurate and perfectly preserved Word of God today.

Brother Scott Answers Your Question


Dear Bro. Scott,

I’m interested to hear your comments on John 14:3 regarding the rapture.

- Marlene C.

Dear Marlene,

I would argue that John 14:3 refers to all believers. Christ said, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
“My Father’s House,” would seem to me to be New Jerusalem. There’s certainly enough room for many mansions and billions of saints! I’m very glad Christ ascended to prepare a place for us! Jesus was likely not revealing the truth of the rapture directly, but He did say He would come again and receive the saints to Himself.
Paul said, “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” In 1st Thessalonians 4:16-18. Notice how both John and Paul record words of comfort for the believers?
I have no reason to believe the rapture is not at least implied, and perhaps included in John 14. I don’t say that the 12 Apostles will be in the rapture, though it would be hard to prove they are not. If God has other plans for them related to Israel, so be it. But regardless of the mechanism of removal from this world, we will ever be with the Lord in His Father’s house!

I hope this helps!


In Christ,

Bro. Scott

 

Dear Bro. Scott,

So my always skeptical husband has been asking me questions lately about why Jesus only started his ministry at age 30 and for only 3 years - and why there is no information about his first 30 years - even in the bible (other than His birth) Do u have a good answer for him?

- Gretchen L.



Dear Gretchen,

I do! Priests did not start to serve in their priesthood role until age 30. Jesus Christ is the great High Priest. His early life was not significant to the purpose for which He came: to die for sins and claim title to His kingdom on earth.
He is shown in Scripture being circumcised at eight days old and questioning the scholars in the Temple at age 12, but this shows that He learned of who He was by the Word of God. He understood that He was the Son of God, incarnated in the flesh, by the Scriptures so that He could experience being human.
"For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." - Heb. 4:15 9:46
"But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man." - Heb. 2:9
I suspect that in eternity, we may learn all about Jesus’ life from boyhood to adulthood, but God chose not to give us those details. He wanted us to focus on the words Christ would preach as an adult, and see the signs He would show Israel to manifest that He truly is the Son of God.

Yours in Christ,

Bro. Scott

 

Dear Bro. Scott,



I have two questions that I have struggled with my entire teen thru now life. I was raised Seventh-Day Adventist as a child. I was taught Saturday is the “Sabbath” day and to eat no unclean meat (pork, shellfish, etc.). My struggle is with majority of Christians worship (go to church) on Sunday. So how was this changed and why? I understand Jesus is Jewish and they worship on Saturday. However, did the early church continue to worship on Saturday? Was this changed to accommodate the “gentiles/pagans” to make it easier for them? Like the holidays?


For the unclean meat (according to Levitical codes) was this changed in the New Testament by the sheet being lowered down to Peter? I know it also concerned the teaching to the gentiles now.


Are there verses in the Bible that call out the right day to worship on and whether or not food is still unclean or not???


Please help me to better understand. Or is this just getting stuck in the law and not keeping our belief thru Faith in Jesus Christ?


- Shannon R.


That is a very legitimate question, Shannon. Thanks!
I recommend a study of Romans 14 to examine the charitable attitude we should have towards these subjects. Still, the primary answer to your question is Colossians 2:16-17, “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.”
Christ is the end of the law to us who believe (Rom. 10:4.) We have the grace to worship any day and to eat anything! The true Sabbath is the 1,000-year reign of Christ, and food has no bearing on your salvation. It’s good to live a healthy life, but sin will still destroy this body. We are looking for a new body!
Isn’t grace wonderful? Free yourself from legalistic dogma so that you can serve the Lord with joy!

Yours in Christ,

Bro. Scott
