Bible Questions

Here is a summary of some questions that came in to Leo Schreven during the 10 day long All Power seminars that I attended in January 2010.

Bible says we need to be baptized by immersion.
Matthew 3:13-17 13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. 14 John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” 15 But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. 16 And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; 17 and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”

1. What if my family member has died without proper baptism? God looks at the person’s heart. It is their relationship with God that counts. Many do not know the truth.

2. Is the USA mentioned in Bible Prophecy? Yes, it is in Revelation 13:11:
Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. In the late 1700’s, North America was like a lamb. Recent actions of USA are more like a dragon with wars going on.

3. Is it proper to pray for things? Don’t ask for things. Claim Them! Be a Victorious Christian! Pray that God will bless you and that you are claiming HIS Providence.

4. Lazarus being raised from the dead: Luke 16:19-31
“There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. 20 And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, 21 who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried, 23 and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. 24 And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’ 27 And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father’s house— 28 for I have five brothers —so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.’ 29 But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 
He said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.’”

5. How should a Christian dress? 1 Timothy 2:9
Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire.

1 Peter 3:3-4
Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.

6. Do We Have to Attend Church to Be a Christian?
Leo commented that we gain strength to overcome Satan by being in the Body of Christ. He then gave this Bible verse: 1 Corinthians 12:12-31

12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.


14 For the body does not consist of one member but of many. 15 If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? 18 But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. 19 If all were a single member, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts,  yet one body.


21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, 23 and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, 24 which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, 25 that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. 26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.


27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. 28 And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, helping, administrating, and various kinds of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? 30 Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? 31 But earnestly desire the higher gifts.


And I will show you a still more excellent way. 

7. Did Jesus Keep the Sabbath? YES! Jesus kept  1,742 Sabbaths in HIS 33.5 years. He was seen in the Synagogues reading the Scriptures. When HE came back after the resurrection, the early Christian church was keeping Sabbath and you can read about this in the Book of Acts. God’s creation story in Genesis 2 is that HE blessed the Seventh-day and made it HOLY. So the Sabbath is for all of mankind, not just the Jews. The Jews have kept Sabbath for over 5,000 years. Be not deceived as to what man has done.

Papal Rome said it had the authority to change the Commandments of God and the day of worship. The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine , By Rev. Peter Geirmann, Second Edition, p. 50:

“Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea (336 A. D.) transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.”

Papal Rome also changed the tenth commandment and removed the second one about Idol Worship. Be very careful that you are not deceived by Man. Follow the Word of God which is written in the Bible.
