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?

What Is A Blood Moon?

Q.  In my 80 years, I have seen several total eclipses of the moon.  As I recall, the moon always assumed a reddish tint due to refraction of the sun’s light through the earth’s atmosphere. I think the more contaminated the atmosphere on the night of the eclipse, the “redder” the moon appears.  I seem to remember its being redder some times than others.  What is a Blood Moon, and how does it differ from the above? Is it only a matter of degree?  Who names it a Blood Moon?  What is the prophetic significance of a Blood Moon, if any, during “peace time”?

Problems In Europe

Q.  I was wondering what you think about what is happening in Europe right now. Europe might be splitting up into a smaller group, and countries might go back to their previous currencies (before the Euro). I know Europe has a big part to play in the end of times. What does the Bible say about the strength of Europe in the end of times?

All That In 7 Years?

Q.  A search into the average length of the longest lasting empires such as the Roman, Persian or Babylonian empires ranges from a few hundred years to over a thousand years.  How is it the greatest, most evil and last empire will begin, conquer the whole world and be destroyed within only seven years?  And a portion of that time is under the guise of peaceful intentions.  Granted Satan will not be restrained.  Should we consider a much longer time between the rapture and the beginning of Daniels 70th week?

Revelation Time Line One More Time

Q.   With all the “talk” lately about the tribulation and  the rapture, especially that according to some views we are already halfway through the “week”, i was wondering if you could provide a timeline.  Do the final judgements in Revelation take place throughout the final week or just the last 3 and 1/2 years? Can a case be made that one or more of the seals have been opened?  In my view the Church will be gone before any judgments start. What do you think?
