More On The Partial Rapture Theory

Q.  In Revelation, only the Philadelphia church was told they would be kept “from the hour that would try the whole world.” We like to apply that to ourselves, but doesn’t that mean because the Philadelphia church was “hot” they preserved their entire generation from entering into the time of the end. In contrast, the next generation of believers, the Laodiceans, are so weak spiritually that as salt that has lost it’s savour, they have no preserving power to keep that hour  from coming forth during their lifetimes( meaning the promise of the Philadelphia church cannot be taken and applied to our generation.) Do you think it could be possible to have a partial rapture–especially as John as the beloved disciple was the one chosen to receive the revelation, and he as the” type ” of those who will be delievered–showing us only those who are in close fellowship with Jesus will be shown the “open door” in heaven?

The Fiery Furnace And The Great Tribulation

Q.  Scripture says that many believers  will be delivered up to the anti-Christ and/or his forces. There is also an admonition that when the moment arrives, the believer should not prepare or rehearse any speech, but should allow the Holy Spirit to speak to the evil forces instead (Mark 13:9-11).  Assuming that the anti-Christ will expect a believer to RENOUNCE Christ and instead worship him and HIS religion, what do YOU think that The Holy Spirit, through the Tribulation believer, will have to say?

Denying The Faith

Q.  During the Great Tribulation, if a believer and/or his loved ones are tormented (in whatever broadest sense) to the point he denies Christ, will he lose his Salvation?

OSAS And Luke 21

Q.  How does Luke 21:34-36 stack up against OSAS? “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”

Can We Forestall The End Times?

Q.   What can be done to forestall the coming great events of the end times?  (I worry for those who have not heard to good news.)  I know there are unreached people and although I am really looking forward to the Rapture and being with the Lord soon and am praying for the Peace of Jerusalem, it bothers me that some will be left behind.

Does God Know The Rapture Timing?

Q.   My question concerns the verse in Romans that states the rapture will happen when the last Gentile is saved (my paraphrase) and thus it is a numbers based event not a specific day/hour event.  I contend that there is a specific day/hour out there, perhaps very close now, known only to God.  He isn’t delaying the rapture.  He isn’t tarrying, and He can’t be hurried.  It’s a specific day/hour that only He knows, but it’s out there.

As a follow up, there certainly are Jews coming to Messiah by faith these days, myself being one of them.  So when the verse in Romans talks about the last Gentile coming to Jesus, what about Jews?

What Will We Do After The Rapture?

Q.  I am confused on what the Church will be doing during the actual tribulation. If we are raptured directly into the New Jerusalem, will we be cognizant of the horrors that are happening on earth? Will we be able to see any friends/loved ones left behind and their struggles? And, at the end of the 1000 year reign, where is the church during the final battle?

Elenin And The Earthquakes

Q.  Be on the look out for another major earthquake on September 26-27 when Elenin is in alignment again with the Sun and Earth.  When Elenin was aligned previously with the Sun and Earth, the Earth had major earthquakes:  2/27/10 – Chile; 9/1/10 – Christhchurch, New Zealand; and 3/11/11 – Japan.   You can verify this on NASA’s website:  Is it coincidental that the UN will be meeting/deciding at this same time (week of September 26) on establishing a Palestinian state?

Why Not Sept. 29?

Q.  In your current article you seem to say the rapture can’t happen on Sept. 29.  Couldn’t God arrange to have the full number of Gentiles come in by Sept. 29 to have the rapture happen on the Feast of Trumpets?

Remember Lot’s Wife

Q.  In the case of Lot’s wife, I assumed that when she was pulled out of Sodom and Gomorrah with Lot and the family that they were saved because they were found righteous to be spared. If that’s so, why would she be turned to the pillar of salt just for looking behind. I realize she didn’t follow the directions to not look back, but I don’t understand why she was punished like that. It’s like how we’re saved and we still disobey on occasion but we’re still saved from the wrath. So why wasn’t she?
