Do We Have Little Strength?

Q.  I agree with your interpretation of Romans 11:25 that  the timing of the rapture is based on a number instead of a specific date.  If so, do you see the big push for promotion and acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle, as well as abortion on demand to be a final “big push” of the enemy (Satan) to try and delay reaching the number? And is the twisting freedom of speech laws to try and stop Christians from sharing the gospel a sign that the church has “little strength” as the Lord said in Rev. 3:8? That our influence is being diminished, making the great commission more and more difficult?

Ruling Over What?

Q.  Our reward when we get to heaven is to rule and reign. My question is, to rule and reign what? Satan is vanquished. The only people there are ones that “passed the test”and received the reward of heaven. Its not like they need someone to keep them from robbing banks or stealing the asphalt. I myself would not be comfortable ruling over Christians  or setting myself above them in any way. What am I missing here?

Stuck In New Jerusalem?

Q.  You have said that the Church will be in the New Jerusalem during the Tribulation and the Millennium, but that we won’t arrive until after the battle of Armageddon. However, scripture says we will return with Jesus when He comes to destroy the nations at Armageddon and thereafter we will rule on Earth with Him. How can we do that if we are stuck in the New Jerusalem floating above Earth?

A Bible Based Church Without Prophecy?

Q. I have a question about a church I am attending. It is a wonderful, Bible-based church, and after quite a search, I have settled down into it. What is holding me back from membership is that I noticed the Pastor never mentions the Rapture or end-time prophecy. He does say general statements such as “When the Lord returns,” but that is about it.  I have searched high and low for a good, Bible-based church with loving people and I believe I have found it. I also would like to hear teaching on end times prophecy.  What should I do?

Giving To The Poor

Q.  I can tell you why I voted for Obama even though I am a Christian. First let me say neither candidate was a Christian. Then I asked myself whose policies show the most concern for the needy as God has directed as I do not see churches being able to carry this burden totally and in fact most do very little in this area. What do you think?

The Kingdom Of God

Q.   I just finished reading your article on Gospel of the kingdom, and it seems to me that , according to what I read, the period of grace which the present church is enjoying is the period between the 69th and 70th week of Daniel’s prophecy.   What is the difference and / or similarity between kingdom of God and the present church of God? Another one is that, the kingdom of God prophesied by Daniel, is it a physical kingdom or a spiritual one?

Ruling And Reigning

Q.  Will raptured Saints rule and reign with Jesus “physically” on earth during the millennium?  Revelation and Zechariah both describe Jesus’ 2nd coming when He comes with His army “clothed in fine linen, white and clean”, which are the clothes given to Jesus’ bride in Revelation 19.  To me this means that we are “with” Jesus when He comes back to reign on earth.

The Church in Ephesus

Q.  What does Jesus mean in Revelation 2:5 when he warns the church in Ephesus he might remove their lamp stand from its place among the churches?
