The Body Of Elijah

Q.  I love the vivid word picture describing Elijah, the fiery chariots, and charioteers. And I believe he will return, stand, preach, be killed and resurrected in the streets of Jerusalem during the Great Tribulation period. And I also know bodies will rise from the grave to meet Jesus in the Rapture.

But in the mean time, where is Elijah’s earthly body? I wonder if the fire consumed his body for this time until he inhabits it again during the Tribulation? Or is the body he’ll inhabit in Jerusalem already glorified?

All Bible Prophecy Fulfilled?

Q. I have a friend who used to have the same beliefs as I, but within the past few years has ended up being what he calls a Historical Realist, but to me he seems to be more of a Preterist. He believes ALL prophecies were fulfilled in 70AD.

I have been doing a lot of research to disprove his reasoning, but I want to make sure I have a strong impact. He believes Revelation was written before 70AD cause the temple was mentioned. I  know it’s a temple of the future, not of the one of Biblical times. And Nero does have anti-Christ characteristics, but I don’t see where he fit full prophecy of the Antichrist & beast.

Do you have any strong scripture references to support against Jesus’ teaching at the Mt of Olives was not referring to 70AD? Also do you know where I can find solid proof Revelation was written in the mid 90s AD?

Thank you, your site is a blessing. Continue reading…

Earthquakes And Volcanoes

Q.  My question is in regard to the recent earthquake activity.  Since God’s wrath doesn’t start until the tribulation, are the earthquake “birth pangs” a result of creation crying out for Christ’s return?

Judgment Before Rapture?

Q.  Do you think America will be judged before the Rapture? America has changed drastically the last 6-10 years and I do not recognize her any more. Is it wrong to ask God to spare America and the Christians who live there?  I long to see King Jesus and my family.  I have many there including my first born and only son.  I am so ready, especially since my children are covered and my granchildren are under the age of accountability.

Explaining Our Disappearance

Q. When the Rapture happens and people are left behind, how is the disappearance of so many explained? Won’t people realize that the prophecy of end times has begun, and won’t it create a breakdown on the economy?

Gathering The Elect

Q.What exactly is going on with the gathering of the elect in Matthew 24:31 and Mark 13:27, since the Church has already been raptured by that point? Also, does “the elect” strictly refer to the believing remnant of Israel? Even so, what is the point of this gathering, which seems to imply only believers so as to exclude this from being part of the “sheep and goats” gathering/judgment?

Where Is Babylon, Really?

Q.  I know you have answered this in the past but one again the “America is Babylon” scenario is being offered up.   I’ve been pretty much on board with your thinking that America is not Babylon the Great  Nevertheless, there are some valid points to consider especially about the seeming lack of time to build it along with all the infrastructure that needs to be put in place. It seems to be less and less plausible the nearer we get to the rapture.  Do you still hold to your position?

Understanding Daniel 7:25

Q.   In Daniel 7:25 it says the saints will be oppressed by the Antichrist for 3 1/2 years. That must be the first half of the tribulation 7 years.  If the rapture takes place before the 7 year tribulation (which I believe) then who are the saints referred to as all saints have been raptured and there will be none on earth for him to oppress?  Please straighten out my confusion – because Daniel 7:25 reads to me as a mid- trib. rapture verse.

The Ascendancy Of Evil

Commentary by Jack Kelley

For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way (2 Thes 2:7).

The number of emails I receive from people who are discouraged, frustrated, even despondent, is steadily increasing. They point to current conditions in the world and wonder how much worse things can get.

End Times Signs

Q. I have two questions. A) Why should the generation Jesus mentioned in Matt. 24:34 start with the rebirth of Israel, when Jesus didn’t mention this event when describing the end-time generation? B) In other words, is your position that Israel’s re-birth appears to be the earliest chronological sign even though Jesus didn’t mention it when describing the end-time generation?
