Q. The book “Heaven is for Real” was extremely realistic, yet I have a catch in my Spirit in regards to it as I feel we are not to be involved with the supernatural, but receive our information re: heaven from the Bible and Our Lord Jesus Christ. John 3 :13 says No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man, who is in heaven. I would appreciate your thoughts and opinion.
Q. In John 11:24 Martha referred to the resurrection at the last day. What last day does this refer to? Is this the last day before the new heaven and earth, the last day before the millennium starts, a period of time, or some other last day?
Q. In John 12:1 it says:”Then six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany…”, and then verse 12 says, “The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast…” So, according to John 12:1, Jesus was in Bethany 6 days before the 14th of the month, that is He was there on the 8th of the month, and the next day is the 9th of the month, the day when the multitude went out to meet Him and cried out “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! The King of Israel!”, and it was not on the 10th of the month.
Q. I have often wondered what would have happened if the Jews had truly and officially accepted Jesus as Messiah; if the Lord’s reception on Palm Sunday had permeated the entire nation of Israel. Based on your broad knowledge and understanding of what Scripture reveals, can you speculate what would have been the course of history in the past 2,000 years?
Q. From my research, I see that Daniel was taken captive around 605-600 B.C. Yet, while there, he was given a vision of prophecy that would take place 483 years into the future, the coming of the Messiah. I’m having problems reconciling the time leading up to Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday from the 69 weeks of Daniel’s prophecy and the time-frame that he was held captive. Did Daniel have an abnormally long life span?
Q. Is Zechariah 12:10 a prophecy about Christ being crucified or about His return to Earth at the second coming?
“And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.”
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?
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?
Q. When and why did Jewish rabbis start celebrating the Passover Seder after sundown on 15 Nisan, which is the Feast of Unleavened Bread?
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?
