Q. I live in England and as I write this we are experiencing severe and prolonged storms on a scale never seen before. I wonder how this fits in with Bible prophesy about the end times. I understand the Bible says these things will happen in the last days and perhaps this is part of the birth pains prophesied. If it weren’t so serious it would be laughable listening to the so called experts trying to explain why it’s all happening. Without a doubt this country has turned its back on God and I wonder if the Lord is sending us a warning. How do we who love the Lord try and convince a more and more skeptical nation?
Q. I remember once reading a book about Bible prophecy wherein the author said that sinners during the millennium will receive immediate punishment when they sin. Is this Scriptural?
Q. After reading your article titled Islam And The End Times, I have several questions. Given Islam’s unpopular reputation as a very violent religion, how could post Rapture masses willingly follow a leader representing it? Also, if Israel at that time considers this fiendish peacemaker to be the Messiah they were looking for since Old Testament history, then how could they cooperate with and endorse him by allowing him to construct a Jewish temple near Jerusalem? Isn’t the anti-Christ supposed to be of Jewish descent to make this arrangement? If the the aforementioned is accurate then how will this future ruler be of Islamic origin?
Q. I have been a pretrib rapture believer and defender for many years. I can support it from every angle out of the old or new testament, and I have a great understanding of the problems with placing the rapture anywhere but pretrib. I have read many times where you say not to let one verse undo what many verses have already established. Having said all of that I am wondering if you could help clarify Revelation 10:7 where talking of the mystery of God being accomplished by the seventh angel, at the seventh trumpet, and whether or not it is referring to the rapture of the church at the last trumpet.
Q. I believe my understanding is correct that during the Millennium, believers can lose their salvation and will be required to conduct animal sacrifices. But once the Millennium is over and Satan is forever shut away to no longer influence believers, will it still be possible for those living on Earth to lose their salvation? Will they be required to continue animal sacrifices in eternity?
Q. Revelation 3:3 states “So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you.” Does this verse imply for those that are awake that they will know the hour of his return? If so, it seems to contradict Mathew 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.” Could you explain?
Q. When the 5th Bowl Judgment hits, the Bible says darkness covers the throne of the Beast. How long will this last? I can’t imagine it will last until the time Jesus comes in His 2nd coming because there is the assembling of the armies at Armageddon and they’d need light to fight that battle. Am I right, or am I off base? Or will the darkness last until the 2nd coming? I did a search but couldn’t find any conclusive answers.
Q. What are your thoughts on being “written out of the book of Life”. It seems to be a clear and concise statement. Shouldn’t we take this literally? I couldn’t find an OSAS related answer on this question, or I got lost in all the questions on the topic.
Q. I was watching a well known teacher on TV today and he said a fascinating thing; Quoting 2 Corinthians 5: 1-5, he explained that we will have up to three bodies. The body we have on earth which is corruptible, a second temporary body when we go to Heaven if we die before the Rapture and a third, perfect body which we will receive at our resurrection. Apparently those who go in the rapture will only get two of these, the first and the third. Have you ever heard of this?
Q. My question is about the things the Bible says must happen before the coming of the Lord. Do these things refer to the Rapture or the Second Coming? For instance Christ talks about the gospel of the kingdom being preached to all tribes and then the end. Is this a pre- rapture prophecy or a pre-second Coming prophecy. Also Paul says Christ is coming for a church without spot or wrinkle. Is this talking about a church that has worked out its salvation? What does this mean? And this seems like a pre-rapture condition, too.
