Q. In Revelation 10:3-4 the 7 thunders are talked about. Are these anywhere else in the Bible or is there any explanation for this?
Q. Re: the Sequence of End Times Events. You have said that the Rapture comes first, then the Battle of Gog and Magog, then the 70th Week of Daniel, but why wouldn’t the 70th Week begin before the Battle of Gog and Magog and not after it? Couldn’t Gog and Magog come with the red horse in Rev. 6 after the anti-Christ has brought a false peace to Earth?
Q. In the Lord’s Prayer, there is a verse that says, “Lead us not into temptation”. Since James 1:13 says that God doesn’t tempt anyone, what is the correct interpretation of this verse?
Q. I believed the pre-trib position for years but I changed my view when I preached through 1 Thessalonians. There is nothing in 1 Thess. 4:13-18 about a pretribulation rapture. When Paul said, “we who are alive and remain until the coming (parousia) of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep,” he uses the word parousia meaning “coming,” “arrival,” or “presence.” There is no reason why they would not be thinking that this is the second coming in glory after the tribulation.
Q. Why is Jesus called the Lamb of God?
John 1:29 “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world”
Rev 5:6 ” Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne.”
And why is He called the Lion of Judah?
Revelation 5: 5 Then one of the elders said to me “Do not weep! See, the LION of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals”.
Q. In our Sunday morning Bible study we are looking at the two witnesses in Revelation and trying to figure out when they witnessed. Some of our group think that they’re here for the first 3 1/2 years, some the last 3 1/2 years, and I think that they’re in the middle, overlapping both the beginning and the end because God does things in 3s. So much happens both before and after the witnesses that I just can’t see how they fit anywhere else. Your input on the subject would be very appreciated. God has blessed you with an astuteness of the Bible and blessed us with the fact that you share what you know with us.
Q. I have asked The Lord everyday to come into my heart and forgive me me of all my sins, but I’m a drunk. I cry out and ask for his forgiveness as my guilt has a tight grip on me but can’t stop drinking. I let him down all the time I am so scared that He will leave me like this. Jesus help me please.
Q. Would you take time, possibly, to address a concern I have about unity of the Spirit – no differentiation between the Jew/Greek/bond/free/male/female – and the nationality issue? I’m speaking specifically about those who are Jewish Christians. Is it a natural response to being saved as a Jew to consider oneself different from Gentile Christians?
Q. After the rapture and during the Great Tribulation and Millennium, what will be happening here in the U.S? I am assuming the Jews left behind from the rapture will make their way to Israel once they see Israel win the Battle of Ezekiel 38 by God’s hand. With the economy failing , I wonder if some Jews in the U.S will even be able to afford to get over there, and then to flee when the abomination that causes desolation of the temple occurs. I wonder what becomes of nonbelievers (and non-Jews I should say) that live in the U.S. Some of them could possibly still attain salvation, correct? I understand that after the rapture and the church is gone, God is dealing with Israel only. I just don’t know where this leaves the United States of America , gentiles and Jews alike.
Q. I heard someone teach that it is the duty of the Bride of Christ to finance the return of the house of Israel to the homeland. He goes so far as to say that “the blood of Israel is on our hands.” In other words, if we as Christians do not help finance the return of Israel to the homeland, somehow we will be found with blood on our hands.
He is using the story of Ruth and Boaz to support his teaching. He likens Ruth gleaning the four corners of the field and bringing the grain to lay in Naomi’s lap as the Bride of Christ financing the return of the dispersed Israelites from the four corners of the earth to the homeland.
From your studies, what exactly does scripture have to say on this issue? Is the Body of Christ responsible for the return of the Jews to the homeland?
