The Samson Option

Q. I have recently come across mention of “The Samson Option”. Would such action even be possible in light of prophecy? I can’t imagine it would, given that the inevitable outcome appears to be the complete destruction of both Israel and whomever she would attack in such an operation.

The Two Languages Of Daniel

 

Q. Thanks again for a great website. It is truly a blessing.  Was the book of Daniel originally written in two languages? If so, do they correspond to God’s dealings with the Jews, and the Gentile world?

Tribulation Time Line

Q.  I am having trouble fitting the start of the Day of the Lord into the 7 year tribulation sequence. It seems it starts in Rev. 6:17 after the 6th seal, but in 2 Thes. 2:3, Paul says the Day of the Lord won’t come until the AC is revealed, which is in the mid of the tribulation. I thought the mid-trib point is after the 6 trumpets. So where in the sequence of seals and trumpets is the start of the Day of the Lord? Thank you so much for your help!

Is Israel’s Re-Birth Prophetic?

Q. I recently ran across videos and articles by those who contend that the current resettling of Jews in Israel is not according to prophecy but is a political situation that is the sole cause of blood shed in the middle east region. They use Leviticus 26 verse 14 and up along with sections of chapter 27 to support this view.  Please help me understand why the diaspora has ended and any verses that point to this promise. I can not believe that this return is without warrant from God.

Judging Angels?

Q.  I’m confused about believers in Heaven, judging angels. What wrong will the angels have done to be judged, if Satan has been vanquished, along with sin?

Full Number Of Martyrs?

Q. I have a couple of questions regarding Revelation 6:9-11.  Slain souls were under the alter crying out for God to avenge their blood.  I read a commentary on this passage and they thought the souls under the alter was the blood of the slain.  But in the next verse they are given white robes which to me means that they were more than just blood.  Second question, in verse 11 there is a full number to be slain.  Is there any significance to this number other than God knows the number?

Can It Really Be That Simple?

Q.  I know a person who believes Jesus is God, that He died for our salvation and rose again ascending into Heaven. The person believes he is a sinner in need of salvation, has confessed his sins and repented but can’t believe it is that easy to be born again.  He says all his life he has been told things only to find out in the end that he was mislead, that what he did wasn’t enough to receive his reward and believes that applies to salvation as well.  He thinks there has to be more, that just having faith is not enough.  He also says that how can people be born again and keep on sinning and still be saved?  What do I say?

Creation Questions

Q.  In Genesis 1:28 Scripture tells us that God commanded Adam and Eve to “Be fruitful and increase in number”, but we don’t read anything about their children until chapter 4, after the fall. Did God not consider their children important enough to write about or was Cain in fact their first child? If that is the case can we speculate that the fall occurred almost immediately after Eve was created?

Still More On The Four Horsemen

Q.  I heard a bible teacher say that the white horse in Rev. 6:2 represents the word of God and not the antichrist. He tied this to the horse being white(purity), the other three horses do not represent actual people, and a verse about Gods word being an arrow.  He said that after the rapture a large number of people that had heard about it but did not get saved will turn to the Lord. This I guess is the conquering part. He also said that is it too early in the tribulation for the antichrist to be in power.  Have you heard this before?
