Q. I’m a strong dispensationalist, so I’m always taken by surprise when someone calls it a false teaching. Can you explain why people would feel this way? As I see it, while the label “dispensation” may be more recent, the principle of God having different covenants with different peoples is clearly outlined in the bible. Can you elaborate?
Q. Unfortunately for me, I believe that Mathew 24:9-14 is all pre-trib, pre-rapture and coming very soon. There sure wont be ‘many’ false prophets running around during the tribulation, maybe one. God sure didn’t spare Israel from wrath. Crazy thing is my pre-trib philosophy excluded a possibility that God is angry at the U.S. And when He gets angry people die, and being God, He may not wait until the Tribulation to settle up. This warm fuzzy pre-trib business may end soon. Few are prepared. Fewer are speaking about it.
Q. I am currently reading your article “The 144,000 of Rev 7 and 14″ and this question comes to mind. Does Israel have any idea of just how many of their people come from which tribe? I am sure The Lord does and He will use that knowledge in selecting the 144,000 Jewish men for teaching in the Tribulation. That would be an interesting thing to know, I think.
Q. I know that throughout scripture, we are told in what ways society will erode and decay until Jesus returns to collect His Church. Daily I find myself, mouth agape with news of how the world considers “evil as good and good as evil”. I know these things signal the closeness of Jesus’ return. While this excites me, I am saddened and angered by the foolishness, and at times even frightened by the expanding lawlessness. I pray daily that Jesus will extend protection to His children who are caught in the middle of all the madness. Yet I read and hear reports of Christians who are badly mistreated even to death all over the world. I am not sure what is the question I want to ask. I guess I just need for Jesus to show up every now and then and give me a hug and say, “Everything will be alright.” Am I alone in feeling this way?
Q. I know the Church is unconditionally saved and we are the only group to be so blessed. This means that if a true believer during the church age committed suicide they would still be saved, albeit lose all their rewards. What about the believer during the tribulation who may be so despaired that they commit suicide. Would they still be saved?
Q. We watch the Hal Lindsey Report. This last Sunday he said his interpretation of the scripture is the antichrist will come out of Rome. I think he said this came out of the book
of Daniel. Can you tell me if this is something you agree with?
Q. You’ve said that the first specific sign Jesus gave to His disciples concerning His coming is in Matt. 24:15, the Abomination of Desolation. Why then do you conclude that the first sign of the End of the Age was the re-birth of Israel?
Q. What does Daniel 12:4 mean? Is the Angel speaking of today’s fast pace of knowledge in technology and people traveling here and there in airplanes,etc? Or, is he speaking of God’s Word in prophecy being understood more clearly and people hungering for more understanding so they travel here and there looking for truth? Also who are these people? I believe the angel is speaking about those are experiencing the Great Tribulation, am I right?
Q. I believe in pre-tribulation rapture. From my research I believe Matt. 24:40-42 are referencing the Second Coming (and not the Rapture). Matthew 24:40-41 says, “Then there shall be two men in the field; one will be taken, and one will be left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and one will be left.” Who are the ones taken, and who are the ones left ? Also who is Jesus prophetically telling to keep watch in Matt. 24:42?
Q. I am having trouble fitting the start of the Day of the Lord into the 7 year tribulation sequence. It seems it starts in Rev. 6:17 after the 6th seal, but in 2 Thes. 2:3, Paul says the Day of the Lord won’t come until the AC is revealed, which is in the mid of the tribulation. I thought the mid-trib point is after the 6 trumpets. So where in the sequence of seals and trumpets is the start of the Day of the Lord? Thank you so much for your help!
