Are We Out Of Time?

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.

Why Sept. 29 Will Not Fulfill Rev. 12

A Bible Study  by Jack Kelley

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?

Confirming The Covenant

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?

The Fullness Of The Gentiles

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.

Another Replacement Theology Question

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?

Why Is The Rapture Necessary?

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?

Tribulation Believers And Temple Sacrifice

Q. For many years Christians have  assumed that all the post rapture believers will need to do is repent and confess Jesus as their savior, and avoid taking the mark of the beast.  But is going to the Temple to offer sacrifices the 3rd element and without it they are woefully without hope?

No Peace After The Rapture?

Q. Re: Seven Things Part 1.  With all due respect, your order of end times event just can’t be correct.  I don’t see how the Rapture can occur prior to the Battle of Ezekiel because scripture clearly states that Israel will be living in peace and security and without walls!  The Rapture will foster anything BUT peace and security for anyone in the whole world so how then will Israel find itself peaceful for this battle to subsequently occur?  It seems to me that Psalm 83 may just provide the cloak of protection Israel needs to be able to let down it’s guard, followed at some point by the Battle of Ezekiel when Israel is living peacefully.  The Rapture may happen on the heels of this battle but I don’t see how the Rapture can occur first. There will be no peace after the Rapture.

Sudden Destruction

Q. Certainly immediately after the rapture, the whole word will be in chaos which will result in a huge mess and the deaths of many unbelievers as well. Have you seen reference to this in scripture? I can’t help but think 1 Thes 5:3 may be referring to this time period. It seems like the epitome of “sudden destruction”!
