Why Was Israel Hardened?

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?

Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy

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?

Is Matt. 24:9-14 For The Church?

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.

Rapture Or Occupation?

Q.  Several months ago during my meditation, the thought came to me that America is going to experience its own “Babylonian Occupation” as in the time of Daniel. Last week, as I surfed the internet, I came across video of politicians quoting Isaiah 9:10 after the 9/11/01 attacks.  When I read Isaiah, I realized that it was a verse of defiance from the Israelites vs. turning back to God. With the creep of Islamic law in this country, could we be looking at a similar situation vs. one that includes a rapture, at this time?

Saving Believers In Name Only

Q.  Do you ever get the feeling that born again believers should try to focus more effort on  so-called believers in name only instead of trying to reach “sinners”?  Seems like an even more difficult task to me, but I ask because with the nearness of the rapture.  I can’t imagine a more surprised, disappointed, and terrified group than they will be after the rapture.

2012, A Very Good Year?

Q. In reviewing what one website has said about December 21,2012 I found an interesting statement.

“It looks like this gravitational cosmic tsunami could cause the sun to scorch the earth. That means that the only immediate survivors would be people in the underground cities, caves, and submarines.”

If I’m correct you said in an article that it is possible the sixth seal and prophecy concerning Dec 21,2012 could be one and the same. If so, that would make the Rapture very very soon. What do you think?

Signs In The Sun, Moon, And Stars

Q.  Matt. 24:29 and Mark 13:24-25 say that the signs of the sun, moon and stars occur after the tribulation.  But Joel 2:31 says the signs in the sun, moon, and stars happen before the Day of the Lord.  My question is do the signs in sun, moon, and stars occur after the tribulation and before the start of the 1000 year reign of Christ as Matt. 24 says, or before the Day of the Lord as Joel 2 says?
