Q. I love your site and have learned so much. In one of your answers you stated, “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.
Q. Satan tried to prevent Jesus from coming to the earth by contaminating the human genome. One of the reasons for the Flood was to wipe out the hybrid-humans produced by the fallen angels mating with human woman. Noah and his family were the only genetically uncontaminated humans. Through Herod’s decree to kill all male boys 2 and younger, Satan tried to destroy Jesus again but failed. Now that Jesus has won for mankind the chance for eternal life and Satan has been defeated, why is Satan still trying destroy the Jews via the Holocaust and now through another oncoming mideast war? It can’t just be a supernatural hissy fit. Satan must see a way to avoid his ultimate destruction if he can kill the Jews.
Q. Please help me understand how there will be people capable of even gathering for the battle of Armageddon. I know it will happen because that is what God stated. I’m just having problems figuring out how. How enough unbelieving people would have survived to get to that point since by then a lot has happened. I just see a world completely destroyed by the wrath of God’s judgments, natural disasters & good vs evil world wars; unbelievers on the verge of death due to the demonic bug bites, no drinking water, and people hiding in caves just for survival & living in complete fear.
Q. I’m not a new Christian and I know a lot about the Bible, but I have never in my life heard the interpretation that Hosea 6:2 means the Church Age will last 2000 years and then the Lord will return to establish His Kingdom. . The one I’ve heard is that Hosea 6:2 will be fulfilled during the Tribulation in a literal three days and on the third one Christ will return. Where does this other idea come from?
Q. I understand that the Jews will rebuild the Temple and continue the sacrifices because they will still not believe their Messiah has come. It will be as it was before the Church Age. But, it is my understanding that there will be many Gentiles becoming believers due to seeing these things take place and becoming true believers in Jesus Christ–without becoming Jews and taking part in sacrifices. Doesn’t the Bible say that there will be people from all over the world, every nation, coming to belief in Christ at that time?
Q. Should I go to and support a church that has anything to do with Jewish persecution in any way or form? Are there any Bible verses that would support this view of not going to a church that believes in Jewish persecution? I was very close to joining this church when I discovered this about the church as a whole.
Q. RE: Matt. 24:22 “Except those days be shortened”. Is it possible that the length of the days may be shortened, for instance 16 hours instead of 24 hours? Thank you for the time and effort you spend on this wonderful site.
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
The Lord said to Moses and Aaron: “This is a requirement of the law that the Lord has commanded: Tell the Israelites to bring you a red heifer without defect or blemish and that has never been under a yoke. Give it to Eleazar the priest; it is to be taken outside the camp and slaughtered in his presence. Then Eleazar the priest is to take some of its blood on his finger and sprinkle it seven times toward the front of the tent of meeting. While he watches, the heifer is to be burned—its hide, flesh, blood and intestines. The priest is to take some cedar wood, hyssop and scarlet wool and throw them onto the burning heifer” (Numbers 19:1-6).
Q. Thank you for the tremendous effort you put into your site. It is a great blessing and a must read every day. It seems like every where I read just about every one, that is all born again believers, are expecting the rapture very soon, but the Bible says it will happen at a time when it is not expected . The thought that we might have to wait longer for it to occur is sad, can you please comment.
