Q. Re: Paul Was Pre Trib. By pre-trib do you mean at the start of the 7 years or before the last 3 1/2 years (Great Tribulation) ? Also what do you think Rev 18:4 means? My daughter’s fiance thinks that it means he can’t come to America because of it, and my daughter is agreeing. I believe it’s most likely America, but it’s some years off, probably near mid-trib. And we’re free to come and go from America until the Holy Spirit would tell us to leave, but more than likely we won’t have to worry about it due to the rapture. What’s your thought and scripture, if possible.
Q. In “Don’t Believe Anything I Tell You” you mention people feeling disappointment, anger and loss of hope because the rapture didn’t happened when they expected it. But you failed to mention fear! The fear that just maybe the world is at least partially right. We are surrounded by a society that considers the rapture absolute nonsense. To them the idea of millions of people suddenly vanishing from the face of the earth is insanity. We are human, after all, and this constant laughter by the society around us does take it’s toll. Right or wrong, many of us are having a hard time hearing the footsteps of the Messiah over the noise of the world.
Q. It baffles me that there are people in Israel who are preparing for a new Temple right now. This means that there is a sector of Jews who seemingly also believe that the End, as described by Jesus, is upon us and yet they still fail to accept Him as their Messiah. They can see the same end that the Church sees looming yet they still cannot see Jesus as the rightful fulfillment of Scripture nor do they feel He is the Messiah they have been waiting for all along. How can this even be?
Q. The word states that the generation that sees the beginnings of the end times will not surely pass away, OK? Well, here’s another idea. What if instead of using the average idea of 70 years being the time frame, we take literally the passing away of the generation. Now if as we know, some people live to be 100 years or even more, would God consider that the generation had not passed away even if one person was left alive and kicking at say 102 or 105 years of age?.
Q. In reading your post “Don’t believe anything I tell you”, I have a question about Daniel 12:11-12. I am doing my own research, and need help with how you get periods of 30 and 45 days here. I only see 45 days mentioned. Please explain.

The Fall Feasts are over for another year, Harold Camping’s latest date has passed, and the Comet Elenin has come and gone with no discernible effect. Hours of YouTube presentations, some very skilfully done, have been proven wrong and still no rapture.
Q. I have two brief questions. Considering that we are experiencing great economic difficulty throughout the world, do you think the Rapture will occur before conditions become worse and if so then could this momentous event we are anticipating cause a global economic collapse?
Q. Re: Why Won’t People Listen? Your answer begins, “You’re referring to Acts 2:17-18.” How can Acts 2:17-18 be applied to Gentiles? All that were there at this meeting were Jewish believers in Jesus. I realize it says “all flesh” but it also says “your sons and your daughters” and “your young men …, and your old men”. I have been led to believe that this refers to the believing remnant of Israel in the tribulation. Zechariah12:10
Q. How does Matthew chapter 13 verse 40 tie to the end times?
