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?
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?
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.
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.
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?
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?
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?
Q. How much of a time lapse will there be between the rapture of the church and the signing of the 7 year treaty? There has to be at least enough time to have the seven years of weapon burning correct?
Q. I always thought that the Rapture was the sure signal of the start of the 70th Week. You disagree, so what is the sign of the start? If the Church is gone by Rev. 5, can we assume the Rapture occurs in Chapter 4? Something you wrote several years ago says the Rapture occurs around the time of Ezekiel 38. Where is Ezekiel 38 in Revelation?
Q. I understand that the Rapture of the church could come at any time, but I have difficulty seeing how everything the Anti-Christ has planned could be accomplished in seven short human years unless that seven year period were in the distant future, say a hundred years from now when technology and knowledge are greatly increased.
