Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38, and Armageddon

Q.   I was wondering with all that’s going on in the middle east right now, I see it has a countdown / ticking time bomb to usher in a world war in the middle east.  My question is this: Is the Ezekiel War and Psalm 83 war that is prophesied the same war???  And this war is different than Armageddon right?

Psalm 83 And the Gaza War

Q.  I wonder if the current military operation in Gaza by the Israeli defense forces is in any way related to the prayers of Asaph in Psalm 83? I wonder if this is a prophetic prayer, hundreds of years ago for God to intervene in this conflict? Could it be that Asaph foresaw this conflict and this is his prayer for God to assist Israel to successfully defeat those enemies which surround Israel? This Psalm seems to describe many of those people groups, all Muslims, who have conspired together to destroy Israel and “cut them off from being a nation”.

Post Rapture Babies

Q.  It’s my understanding that during the rapture God takes babies out of the womb of unbelieving mothers.  My question is what does the Lord do about nine months later when the world has a new round of babies in the tribulation that may not live past six years old?   Are these some of the ones that will be serving in the temple day and night?

Counselor Or Controller?

Q. How do I know that I’m being controlled by the Holy Spirit? Sometimes (OK, seems like a lot of the time) I sin in word and deed, but I don’t like it nor do I go out of my way to do it or anything but, it seems like the sin nature has more control than I’d like and I don’t feel much like a new creation.  What can one do?

Nothing New Under The Sun

Q.  Can you explain what Ecclesiastes 1:9 means when it says “and there is no new thing under the sun”.  Is that implying that everything that we discover or learn about has already happened or has been here in the past?

Leaving Some Behind To Minister?

Q.  The day’s current world events leave me wondering if God might leave some believers behind during the rapture to evangelize or minister to those who are suffering. Despite my attempt to share the gospel with unbelieving friends and family,  I hate to think of leaving  them behind to suffer during the imminent tribulation. What are your thoughts about this?

Severity Of Punishment

Q.  I recently read a commentary which said “According to Rev 20:12d the wicked dead will be evaluated by Jesus at the White Throne Judgement for severity of punishment according to their culpability”.  Would you please comment on the “severity of punishment” idea?

Can Some Believe But Not Understand?

Q. I heard a prominent bible prophecy teacher say that people who believed but did not “understand” the salvation message would miss the rapture and be saved during the Tribulation.  He went on to say that those who did not believe and understand would have a deluding force sent from God so they would not believe.  If I understand the whole concept of being saved, it is the Holy Spirit that draws you to a spiritural understanding when you hear and believe.  Also, do any gentiles get saved  during the Tribulation?
