Will God Punish Me
  
No...he won't punish you. The moment you made Jesus your Lord He blotted out your transgressions.(Isaiah 43:25-26, Micah 7:19, Psalm 103:3)

The moment that you made Jesus your Lord you became a new creature/person in Christ and in Christ there is no condemnation(Romans 8:1, 2nd Corinthians 5:17)

One thing that you must do is forgive yourself.


Gulf From Abraham And Hellh
  
Jesus wasn't giving a parable in the context. he was literally telling where Old Testament saints and sinners went when they died. Abraham's bosom was the place in the underworld where Old Testament Saints went when they died. The other side was for those who OT nonbelievers.


Explain Revelation 22:18-19
  
It only applies to the book of Revelation. Reason being if you read the context where it says, "...heareth the words of the prophecy of this book,..."

It was simply talking about the prophecies given in Revelation.
It is IMPOSSIBLE to add to or take away from the word of God. The word of God is forever settled in heaven.(Psalm 119:89, Isaiah 55:11)
In Deuteronomy 12:32 it's the same principle. It's talking about the instructions given to them at that time.


Love A Spiritual Gift
  
No...love is one of the fruits/produce of your born-again spirit.(Galatians 5:22-23)

The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts via the Holy Spirit.(Romans 5:5)


Upon This Rock
  
In verses 15-18 it shows that the "Rock" was the revelation of Jesus as the Christ.
Rock in the Greek is "petra" and it means "big stone, large rock".

Peter in the Greek means "small rock". Jesus revealed Himself as the Christ to Peter to present to people after His ascention into heaven.


Holy Spirit In Old Testament
  
In Luke 16 it shows where OT saints and sinners went at death. The ones who followed God's law and kept His commandments were in "Abraham's bosom". When Jesus resurrected OT saints ascended into paradise. Paradise is in the 3rd heaven. (2nd Corinthians 12:4)

This is where believers go now. When the rapture occurs we will go to heaven at the judgment seat of Christ(2nd Corinthians 5:10)


Explain Freewill Salvation
  
Both are true. The thing is that salvation is offered to everyone according to John 3:16, but not everyone will except it.

We do have a free will to choose Christ or deny Him. Contrary to popular belief, we are the ones chosing salvation. God has done His part.

As far as "drawing" a person God cannot override a person's will. The gospel is present to all, but a person doesn't have to recieve it.

Romans 10:9-10 even shows that a person has to choose Christ. The "if you shall" in that verse shows that it's up to us & not God.


Sign Of Baptism Of Holy Spirit
  
Tongues is the initial sign of being baptized in the Holy Spirit. (Acts 1:8)

There is a difference between the Holy Spirit living in you which takes place immediately at salvation & the baptism in the Holy Spirit.

The things mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23 are in every believer, baptized in the Holy Spirit or not.

Fruit of the spirit ARE NOT the Holy Spirit's fruits. They are fruit/produce from your new-born spirit. Galatians 5:19-21 proves it in that it shows works of your flesh.

Galatians 5:19-23 show man's flesh & spirit.

All through Acts they showed evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit with tongues initially followed by other signs and wonders.


Holy Spirit In Old Testament
  
No. He came upon some for a season/task, but didn't dwell in them. Look through Judges...He came upon Sampson, but didn't live in him.

He couldn't abide in them because they weren't born-again. They couldn't get born-again under the law. A Savior hadn't come yet. (John 3:16)


Just Accepted Jesus Christ
  
If the man isn't willing to marry you it would be wise to start making plans for you and your child to move out. Remaining there will just keep you in sin.

Do you have a church home & pastor? Talk to someone that you can trust & ask them to help you get out of the situation if you are serious about moving forward in the Lord.


What Is The Kingdom Of God
  
On earth after the church is taken up, in Daniel it mentions 4-kingdoms/governments: Babylonian, Medo-Persion, Grecian, & Roman. Those are the 4 that will be here during the 7-yr judgment period.

-Babylonian Kingdom(Daniel 2:38)
-Medo-Persian(Daniel 5:30-31)
-Grecian(Daniel 8:20-21)
-Romans(Daniel (9:26)
We know that it was the Romans under Titus that destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

Those mentioned are the 4-worldwide kingdoms that will be on earth.

Revelation 20:4 mentions Christ 1000yr. reign. He will reign as King of kings or Ruler of all rulers on earth.

Daniel 7:13-14 shows Christ's reign crushing these other kingdoms...this is the Stone kingdom or the Kingdom of Christ.


What Is The Kingdom Of God
  
MarkV., the "Stone Kingdom" referred to is the "Kingdom of Christ" or the period of time that Christ will physically reign on earth as King. In Daniel 2 & 7, as I have shown, it states what the Kingdom is & does. It is called the Stone Kingdom because Christ is the Chief Cornerstone & will come to the earth and "CRUSH" all other kingdoms like a big rock smashing little pieces of gravel.


Do Saved People Sin
  
1 John 3:4 isn't telling us that we are under the law, but that a person who sins will break the laws.
It is simply telling what sin is...breaking of the law.
Whoever puts him/herself under the law and tries to keep them all, but breaks even one has, in God's sight, broken all of them. (James 2:10)

Sin is fleshly and that's where the sin-nature is. (Romans 7:18)
Man is a 3-part being. (1Thessalonians 5:23)

Yes, saved people do sin. If we didn't then 1John 1:9, 1John 2:1-2 & Proverbs 28:13 need to removed from the bible.

My point is that saved folks do sin. Even the Apostle Paul did...even after being 'saved' for several years.(Romans 7)


What Is The Kingdom Of God
  
Stone Kingdom will be set up at the Revelation of Christ when He shall come w/ the armies of heaven and destroy the Antichrist and judge the nations. (Revelation 19:11-21)

Matthew 25:31-32
**In the Millennial Age God will again deal with mankind as a whole, but made up of nations.

**The Church will not be on earth at the time, only as it is represented by those who will assist Christ, THE KING, in His Administration of the Millennial Kingdom.

**The Jews will be the HEAD OF THE NATION (Deuteronomy 28:13)

**They will in part observe the ceremonial law, but they will also be under a new covenant (Jeremiah 31:31-37, Hebrews 8:7-13)


What Is The Kingdom Of God
  
**Christ will rule with a rod of iron, but that rule will be based on LOVE. (Isa. 11:1-4, Rev. 2:27, 19:15, Psalm 2:9)


What Is The Kingdom Of God
  
Daniel 2.44 shows how God's "Stone Kingdom" will crush all earthly kingdoms and give Christ reign on Earth for the 1000yr. period.


What Is The Kingdom Of God
  
Before the Stone Kingdom:
The Antichrist is to be a king and rule over a kingdom
He will accept the kingdoms that Satan tempted Jesus with (Matt. 4:8-10)
The Antichrist will exalt himself and claim to be God. (2nd Thess. 2:4)
The False Prophet only exalts the Antichrist not himself
Followers of the Antichrist shall be sealed by the False Prophet until the day of Perdition (Revelation 13:16-17)
This is the Satanic Trinity
Stone Kingdom will be set up at the Revelation of Christ when He shall come w/ the armies of heaven and destroy the Antichrist and judge the nations. (Revelation 19:11-21)


What Is The Kingdom Of God
  
Daniel 7:9-14 describes Christ and the Stone Kingdom.
Matthew 21:44 gives info too:
The Stone smites the image, the image doesnt smite the stone
The mountain out of which the stone is cut by invisible hands represents Israel (Genesis 49:24)
The mountain into which the Stone grows and fills the whole earth is the Stone or Millennial Kingdom
Jesus taught His disciples to pray for this Kingdom to come.

During the Millenial period the earth will be renovated by fire: II Peter 3:7-13
