Q. I have a question regarding the Holy Family’s return trip/timing to Nazareth. In Matthew’s account, the wise men were led by the star “till it came and stood over where the young Child was.” (2:9) with verse 11 stating “they were come into the house”. From there, they fled into Egypt as the “angel of the Lord ” told Joseph in a dream to escape Herod’s seeking to destroy Jesus. Reading further in chapter 2, it looks like they were there for up to 2 years before being told again by the angel of the Lord to “go into the land of Israel” since it was safe for Him now to return.
Q. If a Jewish person is willing to take the mark of the beast during the end times will the Anti-Christ allow him/her to remain in Israel without being hunted like the others?
Q. In Rev 6:9 we see all of those martyrs under the altar in Heaven. I had always thought that since the Church will be raptured prior to the start of the 70th week, they will come to Christ through the witnessing of the 144,000. I noticed tonight, however, that the 144,000 aren’t even mentioned until chapter 7, a whole chapter later. If this is the case, how do people learn/hear about Jesus between the rapture and Rev. 6:9?
Q. It seems to me that we really do not know what we will look like in the spirit in heaven. But I doubt that we are just blobs of light without faces. I look forward to seeing my husband of 35 years. And all my family. Very few are left now. We are surrounded by a “cloud”, those who have passed on, Paul said. Is this where the idea came from that we will look like ghosts or wisps of smoke? Jesus did say to His disciples when He appeared to them after He rose, that he was not a ghost or spirit. So they must have believed that a spirit or ghost would look like a person. And He did not correct that did He?
Q. In the book of Thessalonians in chapter 1:10 and 5:9 we see scripture that says clearly we are not appointed to wrath. However, how can we be certain that the wrath mentioned doesn’t mean eternal punishment from God? I appreciate your thoughts as always.
Q. Re. John 14:28. What does Jesus mean at the end of verse 28 where he says “the Father is greater and mightier than I am”? I never noticed this before. Can you please explain this in light of the Trinity?
Q. I have a question about Romans 8:17. If we do not suffer for Christ or share in his sufferings, does that mean we will not have eternal life at all? I kept struggling with the thought that if I do not suffer for Christ or share in his sufferings, I felt that I do not belong to him at all. If we suffer for Christ, does that result more in eternal rewards or both salvation and eternal rewards?
Q. You have said many times that you believe that God tortures unbelievers for all eternity in hell. So, please explain what the “Second Death” is as mentioned in the following Scriptures: Rev. 2:11; Rev. 20:6; Rev. 20:14 and Rev. 21:8. Also, God promises believers “Eternal Life” for our faith, so, if He tortures unbelievers for all eternity, doesn’t that make Him a Liar? According to your view unbelievers would also have eternal life, albeit a terrible one.
Q. I just read a news report that Israel will give out free abortions to women aged 20-33 starting in 2014. I know it seems that abortion has become the new normal everywhere but in your opinion does this fit into any end times scenarios?
Q. Re: Peace And Safety Then Destruction. My question concerns the time between the Rapture and the beginning of the Tribulation. If the world is in total chaos after the Rapture, what would lead to a brief time of peace before the Tribulation? Would it take several months of “recovery” until the Antichrist appears?
