How Many Days Equal Seven Years?

Q.  Have you calculated what 7 year period has 2550 days in it where there is the month of Adar in the 2nd half?  I have heard time and time again by Hebrew scholars that 2014 fits the bill.  Also, a neighbor was told by an ex ambassador to Israel to watch for 2014. It’s like no one will say for sure, but they say “Keep an eye on 2014.”

How Frequent And How Intense?

Q.  As we watch worldwide earthquakes not only get stronger but more frequent all the time, do you think its plausible that we have to wait til we frequently see 8.0’s and 9.0’s as common place before we can hope that the Rapture is imminent?  I watch the USGS site every day, and have definitely noticed more 6’s and 7’s occurring more frequently, but just wonder if we shouldn’t hope for the Rapture til we are constantly seeing 8’s, 9’s and even 10’s. What are your thoughts?

What Is God’s Purpose?

Q.  Recently I talked with my Mom about eschatology and looming prophetic events.  When we discussed the final 7 dreadful years of judgment before Christ’s return she asked me a question I couldn’t answer properly. I said although Satan is in charge here God is restraining evil. But He’ll stop restraining it during the final 7 years.  My Mom’s question is: why will God stop restraining evil at all ? I couldn’t really answer it. I heard that evil has to unfold fully and absolutely but I don’t know what God’s real purpose with it is. Could you please help me with this question?

How Long Will The False Peace Last?

Q.  I understand the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel will be a time of peace.  According to Revelation 6, the 4 horsemen show up before the beginning of the Great Tribulation in Revelation 13.  Do you have an idea of how much time of peace there is before the calamities of the horsemen begin?

What Was Jesus Warning Them About?

Q.  In Matt; 24:15 Jesus warned those in Judea to flee into the wilderness when they see the Abomination of Desolation.  This will be in  the middle of the 70th Week and begins the Great Tribulation.  Two questions come to mind regarding this urgency. Why just those in Judea and what are they fleeing from?

Will God Let Us Suffer Through The Fall Of Our Nation?

Q.  I know that God will not let us suffer through the Great Tribulation or any part of Daniel’s 70th week. But will He allow us to suffer through the fall of our nation which I see rapidly approaching?  Will the Rapture occurs first and contribute to the fall of the US?  How do Isaiah 17, Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 fit in? I am just glad that I have learned to have total trust in the Lord.

Ephraim And Judah, Gog And Magog

Q.   I am having a debate with a Christian friend as to when the Ezekiel 38/39 war will take place. She says that Joseph and Judah coming together again like two broken sticks forming one stick(Ezekiel 37:19) is a symbol of salvation and can therefore only happen at the end of the Tribulation at the second coming of the Lord. She then goes on to say that if that is the case, then the Ezekiel 38/39 war must be postponed until the end of the millenium, which is confirmed (in her viewpoint) by the Revelation 20 prophecy that puts an end to Gog/Magog and indeed Satan himself.

Why Was Israel Hardened?

Q.  After reading the book of Romans, a question came to mind: is the hardening of Israel’s heart due to the fact that they rejected Jesus as the Messiah? And if so, once the Rapture occurs, will Israel’s heart be softened and the will recognize Jesus as Messiah?

Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy

Q.  I am confused about the prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27 where everyone says the Antichrist confirms a treaty with Israel. Doesn’t Daniel actually say that he confirms a covenant with “many”?  I know it goes on to say about taking away the sacrifice and setting up an abomination that causes desolation but where does it say that he makes a covenant with Israel?  Doesn’t the “many” mean a 7 year treaty with many countries?  And who knows what the treaty is about – finance? Global warming?  I know the Sanhedrin is planning on the sacrificing the Passover Lamb this year.  Shouldn’t we be watching to see if and when a “man” makes them stop this offering instead of looking for a treaty?

The Seven Year Weapons Burning

Q.  In one of your recent answers, you stated that you believe that Israel would be burning the weapons from Ezekiel’s war during the seven years of the tribulation.  What throws me off is the fact that for the last three and a half years of the tribulation, Israel will be on the run from the Anti-Christ.  So how can they be burning weapons while they are on the run?  Isn’t it a possibility that Ezekiel’s war will end at least three and a half years, and maybe more, before the start of the tribulation?
