Q. Are the birth pangs the judgment of God? I have so many discussions with a friend of mine who thinks earthquakes, tsunamis, weird noises heard around the world, sunspots and activity, dead birds,even the crashing economy are all part of God’s judgment against America and the world. She is now willing to cede that it is not God’s wrath because Daniel’s 70th week has not happened yet but that we are still being judged because of going our own way. What do you think?
Q. Is it provable that Moses is one of the two witnesses in Revelation chapter 11? A well-know Prophecy TV program has recently declared that Moses is one of the two witnesses. I thought this was unprovable from Holy Scripture. What are your thoughts?
Q. Do you think the next Pope will be the false prophet? If so is it him alone that is working for Satan or the whole religion?
Q. You have said in the past that Ezekiel’s prophecies are chronological. I agree with your view. However, Ezekiel 37: 26-27 (KJV) talks about the Lord making an everlasting covenant of peace with Israel with the Lord’s sanctuary and tabernacle in the midst of them. Some scholars have suggested that this prophecy will see fulfillment during the millennium or at the second coming at the earliest. I guess I am having trouble placing the events of this passage of scripture prior to the Gog and Magog war where Israel is hardly in peace.
Q. I constantly hear different interpretations regarding the following verse, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (Matt. 24:36)) and “As in the days of Noah”. I’ve gone back and forth on this way too may times. Won’t tribulation believers know when the Lord is coming? And how could people be carrying on as usual when the world is being destroyed around them? Also the examples of the men in the field and the women grinding in the mill sound a lot more like the rapture to me than the 2nd Coming. Please help!

Tuesday 12 Nisan. A Prophecy Lesson
Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “I tell you the truth, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.” (Matt. 24:1-2)
Q. As we watch worldwide earthquakes not only get stronger but more frequent all the time, do you think its plausible that we have to wait til we frequently see 8.0’s and 9.0’s as common place before we can hope that the Rapture is imminent? I watch the USGS site every day, and have definitely noticed more 6’s and 7’s occurring more frequently, but just wonder if we shouldn’t hope for the Rapture til we are constantly seeing 8’s, 9’s and even 10’s. What are your thoughts?
Q. Recently I talked with my Mom about eschatology and looming prophetic events. When we discussed the final 7 dreadful years of judgment before Christ’s return she asked me a question I couldn’t answer properly. I said although Satan is in charge here God is restraining evil. But He’ll stop restraining it during the final 7 years. My Mom’s question is: why will God stop restraining evil at all ? I couldn’t really answer it. I heard that evil has to unfold fully and absolutely but I don’t know what God’s real purpose with it is. Could you please help me with this question?
Q. My pastor, whom I love, keeps talking about the great revival that is coming quoting a famous prophet. He says we will empty the hospitals and “the sower and the reaper will be in the field together.” What is the interpretation of that verse and its application.

Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins (Isaiah 40:2).
