Did Enoch Prophesy The Rapture?

Q. In the epistle of Jude, Chapter 1, Verses 14 &15, (KJV) he mentions a prophecy of Enoch dealing with the return of the Lord accompanied by ten thousands of His saints to execute judgment upon all. Since those saints had to be in Heaven in order to accompany the Lord back to earth, isn’t this a prophecy describing the end of the Rapture period of the Church in Heaven and the Second Coming of Christ?

Did Jesus Name The Anti-Christ?

Q.  I saw a video in which a Bible scholar taught on a passage in Luke that he claimed was the Lord giving us a clue to the Antichrist’s identity. In Luke 10:18, Jesus said, “And I beheld Satan as lightning falling from the heavens…”. The filmmaker went on to point out that in the Hebrew text, the word for ‘lightning’ is ‘Baraq’, and ‘heavens, or ‘high places’ is Bamah.  You can see where he was going with this but it didn’t set right with me, so I decided to ask you about it.   What are your thoughts on this?

Scars And Amputations In Heaven?

Q.  Based on my interpretation of Matt 18:8-9, Mark 9:43-45 and John 20:25-27 I’ve concluded that our so called incorruptible/glorified body will bare all the scars and amputations of our fleshly body.  What do you think? Continue reading…

What Does Deny Mean? Follow Up

Q.  Re:  What Does Deny Mean?  You made the comment that some English translations use the word “disown” in 2 Tim 2:12, but the Greek word is never translated that way, and it changes Paul’s meaning because to disown means to renounce or repudiate. When I looked it up in the online interlinear Bible, it is always translated ‘disown’. Now I’m confused.

Why Another Temple?

Q.  Can you explain why the rebuilding of the Temple is so important? Why, when Jesus died to take away our sins and we are able to worship God without a temple?
And why is a Temple necessary during the Millennium?  If Jesus is here with us, why does the Temple need to be rebuilt?  It seems to be so vital to the Israelis. Forgive my ignorance on this matter.

Virgins Or Bridesmaids?

Q.  I have read Matthew chapter 25 about the 10 virgins, in the King James Bible, and it doesn’t mention anything in there about bridesmaids. Where did you get bridesmaids from Matthew 25?

Another Partial Rapture Question

Q.  Which Christians will go into the Rapture? Will it be those who appear to not sin as much as other Christians do? The reason why I’m asking is because I believe I am saved because I believe that I am a sinner and that Jesus Christ died for my sins and rose on the third day, but I still struggle with sin daily even with small sins. Would you please explain this to me?

Is Josephus A Reliable Historian?

Q.  As I was reading one of your responses, I noticed you referenced the Jewish historian Josephus. My former pastor claims that Josephus was an unreliable source, and was a self-serving ally of Rome. Have you come across such allegations?

Why Are We Fractured?

Q. I have been perplexed for some time now about the controversies that rage within the Body of Christ these days. There are large groups who hold views that other large groups claim are apostate.  How can we all be led by the same Spirit in so many conflicting ways?  Why is the discernment in one believer so different from the discernment in another?  Why is there not a consensus amongst the Body of Christ?
