Q. I subscribe to your site and find it very informative and encouraging. Have you posted anything to explain the full meaning of Rev 7:14 where it says, “And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. ”
Q. I am just wondering, do you think that we will have an insight or know who the anti-Christ is before the rapture? There are many speculations on who and where the anti-Christ will come from. Some say he will be of Roman descent, and others say he will be from the Mid East. I would think that the anti-Christ would be of Roman descent, since the Romans are the ones who crucified Jesus. Will God let us stay on this Earth to see any of the tribulation or at least until the anti-Christ shows his face?
Q. The four horsemen seem to me to be glimpses of the conditions of things to come with the judgments starting with the 6th Seal. It’s like each horseman pulls back another curtain to show the trouble they bring to the 70th Week. They remind me of a “Forward” written in a book which is the preliminary groundwork to the story coming up. Do you see my reasoning? If not, can you help me reconcile these things that don’t seem to fit with each other?
Q. Great site, I am a regular reader with a small question. How to interpret Isaiah 24:21 “So it will happen in that day, that the Lord will punish the host of heaven on high, and the kings of the earth on earth.” Who is the host of heaven on high here? From the rest of the chapter one could assume it is referring to Satan/Lucifer/fallen angels or the A/C, but being called the “host of heaven on high” sounds more like Christ. Is it a reference to Christ and his work on the cross instead?
Q. Thank you so much for your site and wonderful teachings. I use them for my daily morning devotional and am blessed. In your article, “The Hidden Doctrine of the Rapture” you stated “When God does take the Church out of the world, there will be another abrupt change as the Age of Law returns for its last seven years. Once again the focus will be on Israel. There will be a Temple with sacrifices and all the other associated ceremonies. Except for all the missing people, it will be like the Church Age never happened.” I had always believed that after the church is raptured, many gentiles who had heard the Word, but were on the fence, would be saved. But if your statement, above, is true, wouldn’t they be required to make blood sacrifice just like the Jews?
Q. I had the idea that the primary indicator of the beginning of Daniel’s 70th Week is the appearance of the AC. So, what is the difference between his “appearance,” as a powerful, or soon-to-be-powerful, political figure, and his revealing as the AC? Is he revealed when he commits the Abomination (which sets off the Great Tribulation), or is he revealed as the AC before that?
Q. What do you say to someone who questions if the delay for the completion of the 70th week is just a convenient way to explain away the fact that the world hasn’t ended yet and to make the bible match up more accurately to actual events. What in the bible supports that delay? I believe the Bible is factual but I’m not sure how to answer this question. Love your website. Thanks!
Q. The way I understand it thus far is for 490 years the Jews did not give their land a Sabbath year of rest so that was 70 years they owed God for the land Sabbaths. They went into exile to Babylon and that paid that debt. Daniel 9 speaks of six things they must square away for the 490 years that are determined for them. 69 weeks of years were fulfilled and the 70th week of years is coming up after the Church Age, what we nick name the 7 Year Tribulation Period. What is it that makes the 490 years still on the clock for them since they served the 70 years for the land Sabbaths in exile already?
Q. Hello I love your site and i keep it bookmarked on my ipod to check nearly everyday. Here is what I can’t figure out. I know a lot of people think there may be a gap of time between the rapture and the start of the 70th week. My question is under which dispensation would this period of time be under?
Q. I love your site and have learned so much. In your article dated 7/26/10 at the bottom of the article you state “However, the scenario you describe will come to pass after the Church is gone. It will happen during Daniel’s 70th week when millions of Christians will be martyred for their faith, and for their refusal to worship the anti-Christ and take his mark.” My question is, if all the believers in Christ have been raised with him, I didn’t think there were any Christians left.
