  • Hi Mike, I'm curious to know your answer to the following question, "how does the Sovereign God make Satan do that which he is predicted to do?"  For example: Rev 20:7 When the thousand years are complete, Satan will be released from his prison, and will go out to deceive the nations in the four...

  • Mike, Thank you for your last email. It was very helpful! You're really good at getting all of the details. I have another question (please forgive me) which has been bothering me. Does God know all? Thank you, I____ Hi I____, You are welcome, and thank you for your question. You ask "Does God know ... [read more]
  • Mike, I'm listening to the peace offering study, and I'm trying to understand why Christ is called 'the mighty God' and 'everlasting Father'. Can you help me please? Thanks!

If we say that God created a devil named Satan to do the tempting fo... [read more]

Read those verses and they, at least on the surface, seem to back up this claim. But I know of many scriptures that declare God's foreknowledge of the future, so I ... [read more]
  • Mike, I enjoyed reading "After the Counsel of His Own Will" on the Internet. How do you interpret Mat 6:13 "And do not lead us into temptation but deliver us from the evil one (NKJV)"? From your teaching, it would seem that we should pray that GOD not turn us over to the buffeting of Satan, but yet... [read more]
  • Dear Mike, When studying one of your articles, I came across this phrase: "We cannot so much a commit a sin if it was not first written in God's book before we were ever born." Could you throw more light on this please? Does this mean that those who sin could not help but sin because it was already ... [read more]
