Q. In an article you wrote on “Seven Things You Must Know About End Times Prophecy,” you indicate that after the Rapture and Ezekiel’s battle, the Jews will rebuild the temple and return to the OT Covenant, including the sacrifice of animals for the atonement of sin. How do we know it is God’s plan for the re establishment of the OT animal sacrificial system? Where does scripture cover this?
Q. I have two brief questions. Considering that we are experiencing great economic difficulty throughout the world, do you think the Rapture will occur before conditions become worse and if so then could this momentous event we are anticipating cause a global economic collapse?
Q. I read a study by a post-Trib teacher who claims the Great Tribulation could begin in 2011. Is there any possibility he could be right?
Q. I am puzzled in regards to the rapture of the Church. Will there be a short time when no one else will accept the Lord as savior, and at that time the Lord will call us home? There are people still being saved everywhere, so do you believe the cut off point will be between people that will make up the Body Of Christ, and the people that God knows won’t be saved until the tribulation?
Q. I had a question about the Feast of Trumpets and it’s relation to the Rapture. I agree that the Rapture cannot fulfill Rev. 12. My question is: since the Second Coming would be likely to occur on the Feast of Trumpets and if you’re correct in your theory that all prophecy will be fulfilled by 2018, and we know that Daniel’s 70th week is 7 years long, should we not be looking for the Rapture to occur at or very near the Feast of Trumpets in 2011? That would be next week. I know I’m always looking for the Lord’s return, but the calendar math won’t add up if the Rapture takes place in, say, December. That is, if the Second Coming is to occur by the Feast of Trumpets in 2018.

Judging by the questions I’ve received, a youTube video and an online article have apparently convinced a lot of people that the fulfillment of Rev. 12 and the rapture of the Church will both occur on Sept 29th of this year, which is the annual celebration of Rosh Hashanah, also known as the Feast of Trumpets. Can this be true?
Q. Daniel 9:27 uses the word “confirm”:
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate”. (King James Version)
Question: do you think the word “confirm” is a hint that this covenant will be made two times, and that the antichrist will take part the second time by confirming it, maybe after Ezekiel 38-39?
Q. I have always thought the phrase “fullness of the Gentiles” was the full number of Christians before the rapture but a news headline jumped out at me and got me thinking. It read that the earth’s population will reach 7 billion later this year could it be the actual number of gentiles and not the amount in the Church? I know 7 is God’s number of completeness.
Q. I was born and raised in a church that teaches Replacement Theology. However 3 years ago I began to understand the Jewish roots of Christianity. As a consequence I have been rejected and told to seek God and get saved and to stop studying ‘The Old Testament’ since the church are the spiritual Jews and that I had lost my way being an advocate of the Jewish people. My question, why is there such a rejection of the Jewish people in the church?
Q. What part does the rapture play in saving us from the wrath of God, when we have already been saved from that wrath by doing what others refuse to do – Accept Jesus as our Savior. God’s wrath falls only on the un-saved who reject Christ so why would we have to be in heaven to be protected from his wrath when there would be no reason for his wrath to fall on us? God protected the children of Israel when he was pouring out his wrath on Egypt, can he not do this same today with his church?
