WE ASKED QUESTIONS, GOD ANSWERS

 

  1. "LORD, DID THE CHRISTIANS YESTERDAY BUILD CHAPELS, CHURCHES, AND CATHEDRALS?

    As if God is saying, "You read how I and My disciples preached in different public places: in the mountains (John 6:2-5), in the synagogues (Matthew 13:54, Acts 9:20), by the seashore (Mark 4:1, Acts 16:13), in houses (Mark 2:1-4, Acts 20:20). I and My Disciples built SPIRITUAL TEMPLES and not physical edifices (1 Cor. 3:16)."

  2.  

  3. "LORD, WAS THERE ANY AMONG YOUR APOSTLES WHOM YOU APPOINTED AS THE LEADER?"

    As if God is saying, "While My disciples looked up at James, John, and Peter as the pillars of the Church, I never sanctioned their act. The Disciples eventually realized that it was a sin to respect anyone of them:"

  4.  

    James 2:9 "But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors."

     

    Matthew 23:8-9 "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master,* even Christ; and all ye are brethren."

     

    * Or leader or head or chief or guide or shepherd or teacher or pastor or minister.

     

  5. "LORD, IF NO ONE OF YOUR APOSTLES WAS A LEADER, WHO GUIDED YOUR CHOSEN ONES?"

    As if God is saying, "It was still I Who led them even after Pentecost. I did not leave them, and up to now till the end of the world, I promised to be with them (Matthew 28:20). Do you really know Who I am? How many people believe that I am the Spirit (2 Cor. 3:17), and the Word (Rev. 19:13) and the Truth (John 14:6). Was it really Paul or Peter or John who led the Christians of the 1st century? There is nothing written about that! It is I, the Word and the Spirit revealing the Truth, that lead My people. As the Word, My disciples were guided by what "IS WRITTEN..."

  6.  

  7. "LORD, WHO HAS THE AUTHORITY TO APPOINT APOSTLES AFTER YOU HAVE LEFT PHYSICALLY?

    As if God is saying, "Whom did Paul say appointed him as an apostle? Peter, John, and James? No! It was I Who appointed Paul as an apostle (Ephesians 4:11). This after I left My disciples physically. It was also I Who taught him, not anyone among My other apostles (Gal. 1:10-11). If I did this to Saul of Tarsus, could I not equally do it in your time? Matthias, the apostle appointed by the apostles under the ‘dubious leadership’ of Peter was never recognized by Me! (Acts 1:20-26)

  8.  

  9. "LORD, HOW COULD THE APOSTLES APPOINTED BY YOU ACQUIRE SPIRITUAL WISDOM WHEN YOU ARE PHYSICALLY ABSENT?

    As if God is saying, "If you believe and truly trust Me, this is what I say: James 1:5-8 "Ask Me... (1John 2:27) To whom do I endow wisdom? To the wise and the prudent? No! It is to the babes." (Matthew 11:25).

  10.  

  11. "LORD, DID YOU AND THE DISCIPLES FOLLOW THE LAW ON TITHES & OFFERING?

    Jesus Christ said: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil." -- Matthew 5:17. "LORD, WHY DID WE NOT SEE YOU AND THE APOSTLES FOLLOW THE LAW LITERALLY? For Me: "Is not this the carpenter?" Mark 6:3 For My apostle Paul: "I have coveted no man's silver, or gold, or apparel.Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me." Acts 20:34 I and My disciples followed the law on TITHES and OFFERING spiritually.

  12.  

  13. "LORD, WERE YOU (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) A GREAT MYSTERY TO YOUR CHOSEN ONES?

    As if God is saying, "It "IS WRITTEN" the very first thing I do to My chosen is to reveal Myself to them, both in the Old (Isaiah 48:16, Jeremiah 31:34) and New Testaments (Matthew 16:16-17, Hebrew 8:11).
