Examination File 10

"Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves..."

The Answers to the following Questions can all be found in the sermons of Module 10

Question 1: Jehovah has made scores of promises in His Holy Word.
What reassuring facts come to mind when you think about promises; and what in your opinion are two of the best divine promises recorded in Scripture?
See Sermon Note 10/01. for answer.

Question 2: Jesus Christ is undoubtedly the greatest human being that ever walked this earth. He even claimed to be the Son of God! How you react to that claim will affect you eternally.
How would you answer the question: "What shall I do then with Jesus?"
See Sermon Note 10/02 for answer.

Question 3:

Peace is a divine product. It is made in heaven. Human governments cannot make or keep the peace; not for any length of time at any rate. War, turmoil, revolution, bloodshed, hate, revenge and greed is what we humans specialise in. And yet most people yearn for peace.
Complete these two verses:
"There is no peace, saith my God, .......................... "
"Great peace have they which ............................: and nothing shall offend them."

See Sermon Note 10/03 for answer.

Question 4: Millions of tracts and books have been published in an effort to identify the Antichrist. Undoubtedly his spirit permeate the evil organisations of men down through the ages.
List six Scriptural clues which help identify the Antichrist, the great Beast of Revelation 13.
See Sermon Note 10/04 for answer.

Question 5: Human suffering is, perhaps, one of the hardest things to understand. How can a loving, merciful and powerful God allow pain and suffering to continue on such a massive scale?
Name as many reasons as you can why God allows people to suffer.
See Sermon Note 10/05 for answer.

Question 6: People in their billions are neglecting salvation. All kinds of trivial excuses are spouted as a defence. "I'm too busy, too tired, too sick, too poor, too ignorant" etc..
Will God accept these excuses; and if not, then "How can we escape if we neglect so great salvation?"
See Sermon Note 10/06 for answer.

Question 7: 'All Scripture is given by inspiration of God.'
What are the key messages from Scripture and Which Bible Version has preserved its divinely inspired heritage?
See Sermon Note 10/07 for answer.

Question 8: Though "with God all things are possible," the Almighty still expects His followers to pray.
What are the mandatory parameters of prayer that release the mighty power of God so that the seemingly impossible is accomplished by Him with ease?
See Sermon Note 10/08 for answer.

Question 9: Inner peace for a sinner is not possible without true repentance, confession and a determination to stop sinning in future. The message of Psalm 51 tells of king David's repentance and confession.
To whom should sinners make their confession - to God Himself or to a priest?
See Sermon Note 10/09 for answer.

Question 10: Almost 2000 years ago Yeshua the Saviour departed from earth after making a promise to come back.
Why the delay?
See Sermon Note 10/10 for answer.
