Wonder If I Will Ever Get Married
No your not asking for to much. The bible says theres a time for eveything (even a time for you to find the right guy and get married to him) you will get married if that's something you really want to do. Don't worry the right guy will come to you.

How Often Should We Fast
1, People fast for different reasons: to ask God for mercy, protection, Holy Spirit etc., etc., Fasting is very important for all believers in as much as these people fasted(Jesus Christ, the Apostles, Queen Esther, Daniel and the people of Nineveh) we should fast also Matthew 17:21.

Before, during and after your fasting: it is very important to proclaim your fasting to God at the same time ask for forgiveness of sins, sanctification, mercy, strength and Holy Spirit Isaiah 58. Consecrate your heart to the Lord by making your petitions known through prayer in secret to the Lord. Fasting without prayer is not enough.
After fasting: you should wait patiently with perseverance and continue to ask until your joy is full Isaiah 62:7-8.

How Often Should We Fast
2,If you are among those who get up early in the morning and said I am going to fast today without previous preparation of your heart or I will not eat breakfast or lunch, but will drink my coffee or I can chew gum while fasting you are just fooling yourself, your cry cannot be heard on High.

Devil's Right To Moses Body
The devil has all the right to the body of Moses because of this particular statement must WE Bring You Water out of this rock. He gave the glory to himself and Aaron not to God whose Word brought the water out of the rock. Pride, anger and disobedience was found in him, even though it was the people who moved him to sin that was why he cannot enter into Gods rest.

However, on the throne of Judgment, Mercy was there on behalf of Moses for all his works before God. James 2 For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. Exodus 33: 19.

Can You Commit Spiritual Adultery
Committing spiritual adultery is any Christian who is attending church and professing to love the God and still lusts after foreign gods (openly/secretly) via these methods: reading horoscope, calling the psychic hotline, reading books that promotes witchcraft, consulting spiritualist , voodoo or fetish priests and mediums for guidance or participating in any occultic clubs etc., etc.,

Anyone practicing such should repent because such persons heart is not loyal to God, otherwise he/she will be judged. God will not give answers to such persons prayers Jeremiah 15:1-2. Joshua 24:19-20 (If you forsake the LORD and serve foreign gods, he will turn and bring disaster on you and make an end of you, after he has been good to you). Be holy!

Explain 1 Corinthians 9:23-27
1st Corinthians 9:23-27: this means you should humble yourself before God and all men because God gives grace to the humble Psalm 25:9 9 He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them His way.

The second part of passages is that you should not be weary in walking with Christ, choose life and dont let trials, temptations, tribulations caused by satan and his agents makes you fall before the Lord, but watch and pray. Revelation 3:5 He who overcomes will be dressed in white.

No one is above temptations, but those who resist satan and his agents to their last breath or when the trumpet sound will be welcomed in heaven with this saying: well done good and faithful servant!

Churches Asking For Money
There is nothing wrong with churches collecting building funds. These funds should be used to maintain the house of God and for planting new churches. Haggai 1, however, if there are poor people in their midst, God wants the poor, widows, and orphans needs (not wants) to be met Deuteronomy 15:7. How to achieve these needs depends on the church and the committees in place.

God instructed the children of Israel to leave the edges of their lands during harvest time for the poor and needy Exodus 23:11. All the workers in the vineyard of God should pay the offering with no exclusion according to Numbers 18:27-29.

Ezekiel 34:2 Woe to the shepherds of Israel who feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

Face Of The Water Genesis
The face of the water is actually the surface of the water where the Holy Spirit was hovering over. Water, land, air, hail snow, rain, sun and moon are all servants of God doing His will.

Water was the first creation to receive Holy Spirit that was why everything that God created on this earth has water. Without water, living or none living things cannot survive this earth.

God has promised not to use water to destroy the world, but to use it for salvation and healing of human beings.

Repentance For Salvation
The Bible is all about Repentance and repentance is a spirit that is given to a person by God.

The process of Repentance is as follows: you have to acknowledge your sins, confess your sins silently/publicly, ask God for forgiveness and finally stay away from anything that can make you sin against God.

Remember that as we are in these mortal bodies, temptations will come our way and we have to ask God for Holy Spirit to help us resist satan and his works on a daily basis.

Anyone that believes that repentance is not part of salvation does not have The Spirit of the Truth. These people are false teacher, prophets and antichrist.

How To Read The Bible
Firstly, it is very important to Fear the LORD your God because the secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him and He will show them His covenant.

Secondly, find the time that your heart is free from the cares of this world and with no interruptions to read your Bible. Thirdly, pray to God and ask for the Holy Spirit to turn the darkness into light since where the Spirit of God is there is liberty (Isaiah 60:2, 2 Corinthians 3:15-18).

Finally, after reading, pray to God Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know Jeremiah 33:3. I encourage people to read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation so as to know the God they worship and also attend Bible studies.

Can A Christian Be Depressed
Yes a Christian can be depressed and depression attacks ones health. Spiritually, it opens the doors for spiritual attacks and during this period, there is no space for the Spirit of God to dwell.

Depression is one of the fruit of satan, just as joy is the fruit of the Spirit. Satans absolute motive is to separate you from God, since he knows that in that state of mind you will be moved to strife with your Maker.

God told His people in the Bible not to worry, look to me Your Rock etc., etc., Jesus also told us not to worry, what we are going to eat, drink or wear (Matthew 6:25-34). Apostle Paul says rejoices always and be thankful (Philippians 4:4-7). The battle belong to God not yours. Jesus has overcome the world (John 16:33).

Why Did Jesus Die
Jesus died for us in order to reconcile us to God, make atonement for our sins, and for us to have eternal life Roman 5. Adams sin had caused us to be separate from God, to witness the wrath of God and caused us to be spiritually dead. The Bible says no sinner shall see the glory of God.

God loved Adam in Genesis 2 and satan despised it. Jesus was there as a master craftsman when everything was created Proverbs 8:22-31, John 1: 1-5. God was grieved in His heart because of the wickedness of man, man continued to sin even after the flood.

A call was made before the Throne of God and no one in the heavens and on earth was ready to die for you except Your God - Jesus Christ, The Lamb of God who takes away our sins Revelation 5.

Explain Matthew 16:28
In addition to what I wrote earlier, Moses and Elijah appeared to Him to talk about His departure, encouraged and remindered Him about His mission on this earth once it was near the last phase of His ministry.

What Peter, John and James saw was to strengthen their faith in God and to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

Explain Matthew 16:28
This verse referred to two individuals among Jesus Christs followers who were still alive when the above statement was made. These two persons, according to Jesus will see Him in His glory in His Fathers kingdom and they were:

Stephen - saw Jesus sitting at the right hand of God (Acts 7).

John was still alive when he saw Jesus Christ, the Alpha and the Omega (Revelation 1-4).
What Peter, John and James saw is to strengthen their faith in God and to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Unsaved Did Mighty Work
This verse is referring to anointed people of God who were saved, before/after Jesus Christ came to this earth. They cast out devils and did many notable works in the site of God or in the name of the Lord. These people turned their hearts away from the Lord and exchanged it for the vanity of this world.

Here are the Biblical examples: King Saul- prophesied, Judas Iscariot cast out demons and healed people too, Solomon- built a temple for God, and when he became old, his wives turned his heart away from God. King Hezekiah brought a great revival to Israel and many more. It is not the beginning that matters, but it is those who endure till the end that will be justified and inherit the kingdom of God. Words of encouragement: 1John 2:15-29

Is Smoking A Sin
Smoking is not a sin just as drinking intoxicating drink is not a sin. However, smoking is a sin to anyone who wants to live a holy life. It is very important that we don't defile the Temple of Living God (which is our body where the Holy Spirit resides). Our God is a Holy God - Leviticus 19: 1-2 'Be holy because I, the LORD your God, am holy.
For more information, please read Leviticus 15:31. Leviticus 10:9 talks about intoxicating drinks.

If there is anyone who has problem with smoking/drinking and wants to be closer to God, he/she should take this problem to God in prayer and God will surely remove the desire to smoke/drink completely from his/her life.

Can A Drunk Get Saved
No a drunk, while being drunk cannot be saved, forgiven and granted salvation. You have to be in your right mind and have an open heart to receive Jesus Christ and be willing to confess your sins loudly (Zacheus) or silently like the lady with the alabaster oil.
Noah got drunk with wine and cursed his son for seeing his nakedness and Lots daughters went in and lay with their father without him knowing it. Genesis: 9: 21 & 19:33.

Explain Proverbs 23:23
Buy the Truth and do not sell it. What is the Truth? God is the Truth, Jesus Christ is the Truth, and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Truth. Now, how do you buy the Truth? By loving God with all your heart, believing that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior and by following Jesus commands that He instructed us in the Bible, then, God will give you His wisdom, knowledge and understanding not the wisdom of this world.Proverb 3:3-4.

Do not sell it: under no circumstances should you allow any thing in this world God take the kingdom of God away from you. Romans: 8:35-39

In conclusion you should consider reading Matthew 19: 16-30 (the story about a young rich man).

Old Women Date Young Men
Not to contradict anyone but Jesus in the New testament did not come to abolish the laws of the old testament. and 1 of the commandments is honoring your parents and that's exactly what Isaac did when he married Rebekah. However do note this very important fact- God told Abraham to move to find a wife for his son. Abraham only moved, God is the one who arranged the whole thing. I believe that if God wanted 2 people from 2 different corners of the world to get married and do His will, who can stop it? And the marriage will be a fruitful one and full of love as it it was planned and blessed by the Father.
