I have been having a discussion related to end times with a pastor and he mentioned to me that he does not think all prophecy is meant to be understood and he referenced 1Co 13:9,12; and 1 Jn 3:2.
I have been pondering the Sheep and Goats judgment and wondering what its purpose is if the goats had taken the Mark of the Beast. My question is, Could this be pointing toward the rise of an Islamic economy that has a mark as proof of allegiance, while those with no mark have dhimmitude status?
I recently read The End Times according to Ezekiel, part1. In the article You quoted Jeremiah (on the subject of child sacrifice). I have also read (on a different web site) that there are approximately 900 abortions in Israel every week. Do You think this could be true?
Of recent times I have been burdened with the “silence” surrounding the country of Jordan. In other words, while the greater region of the Middle East is involved in terror and the flames of battle, Jordan appears to be unscathed and/or untouchable.
In your study of Revelation 6 you mention Islam being the religion of anti-Christ. Recently I found the official web site of The Jewish Sanhedrin, who wants to establish Noahide Law world wide. How could these two religions come together in agreement for “one” world religion under the anti-Christ?
Q. I was listening to another commentator today in re: Rev 20 and it got me to thinking about something:
Revelation 20:1-3 Tells of Satan’s capture and imprisonment. From this, I assume John means Satan and his minions, not just Satan only. If Satan and company are locked up for the 1000 years, who administers punishment? I mean, as bad as Satan is, wouldn’t “hell” be about the equivalent of a bad boy being sent to his room?

Here are some interesting facts about Easter someone sent me.
Re: Loving Our Enemies. Careful Jack, you are starting to sound like a conspiracy type here. Yes, Hussein did try to have a sitting US president assassinated but to my knowledge no concrete evidence has ever tied him to the Oklahoma City bombing or even either of the World Trade Center attacks.
In the Old Testament, God frequently led Israel into battle, but Christ tells us to love our enemies. Is the Iraq war contrary to God’s will? Should we be loving our Muslim enemies instead of fighting them?
I just read your response to the question titled “Working Out Our Salvation” and I was wondering about one thing. When you said: “We should strive to be more Christ like in our manner of living. Not to earn something, for we’ve already received it, but to allow God to work in us according to His purpose.” I believe you are mistaken.
