In The Twinkling Of An Eye

Q.  I have read that the meaning of twinkling of an eye in Jewish sayings, means at sunset. Have you heard of this? Maybe there is a different root word for this?

Not Ready When The Rapture Comes?

Q.  My church leader has said in the past; speaking about the Rapture, if you are in the nightclub when Jesus comes, He’s not going to stop by there to pick you up.  I don’t go to nightclubs but, is this doctrine true of the Rapture?

Israel’s New Wealth

Q.  It is interesting that in the last few years, Israel discovered the gas supply of their coast and the Shekel has appreciated by 15% over the last year and a half.  So it seems that while the rest of the world is becoming worse off, Israel is becoming better off.  Does this tie in with end time prophecies?

Why Aren’t The Books Of The Apocrypha In All Bibles?

Q. I heard recently that the Catholic Bible contains 7 more books than does our own Bible. I wonder why there is a discrepancy. Were they originally included but removed later by Protestant reformers? Or were these extra books added by the Catholic Church after the original compilation of the Bible? Do they have any value to Bible believing Christians or should they be avoided as uninspired and possibly flawed?  Thank you so much for your intellectual and spiritual generosity. Your ministry is a continual blessing in my life.

A 10 Day Rapture?

Q.  I read an article recently where the author says that the rapture will take around 10 days, the dead rising first then us.  He was using Rev. 2:10 to back this up.  He also says that we should have a 10 day supply of food and water saved because of riots that will happen during this 10 day event,  I just don’t see all that from this verse. Do you think he is right about all this?

Jesus And The Rapture. Follow Up

Q.  Re: John 11:25-26.  Inferring the rapture from “Whoever lives and believes in me will never die” seems like a big stretch.  Does the “whosoever” in John 3:16 exclude everyone but the Church? No. Sometimes you add personal thinking not drawn from a strict reading of the text. Sorry if I’ve missed something. “Will never die” implies eternal life; not the rapture.
