Q. What are your views on the theory that the mark on the forehead and in the hand might be the Muslim prayer bump and a sword. This coupled with the contention that 666 was a mistranslation of letters which very closely resemble “praise be to Allah” which appears on Muslims head/arm bands makes me wonder.
Q. In a recent answer you said you believe the anti-Christ could be Muslim. I think that your scenario is unlikely. I read in the book of Daniel that – the whole reason he is the anti-Christ, that is the anti-messiah, is that he is a false Jewish religious leader, and not the “Muslim” 12th Imam. Israel would thus never accept him, and we know that the state of Israel “will receive” the anti-Christ.
Q. The most common interpretations of the rider on the white horse in Rev. 6:2 are: 1) Christ, 2) Anti-Christ, 3) Military conquest, and 4) “Proclamation of the Gospel of Christ in all the world” (I don’t remember hearing this before). My view has been the Anti-Christ but the fourth view is very interesting. What do you think?
Q. Is the “12th Imam” the anti-Christ? Do you believe the anti-Christ could be Muslim? I’ve always been taught and believed “He” would arise out of the revived Roman Empire.
Q. I noticed recently that you believe that the 3.5 years that the 2 witnesses are on earth during Daniel’s 70th week does not correspond to the 1st 3.5 years but overlap to 2nd half. Please give me scripture that leads you to that conclusion.
Q. I was listening to a radio show about the Church of Laodicea, the commentator was saying that the definition of Laodicea is rule of the people and I wondered if this could actually mean social justice since this is what a lot of modern churches are striving for instead of the Gospel. Maybe another indicator that we are in the end days. Just wanted to see what you thought of that.
Q. If as Dan. 9:25 reveals that it would be 69 Weeks or 483 years until the Messiah would arrive, and as many suggest it was Palm Sunday (the Triumphal Entry), and if therefore the Messiah was then Crucified on Thursday or Friday, you decide, then how do you account for the miscellaneous additional 4-5 days beyond Palm Sunday? Are you suggesting that God ‘approximated’ the prophetic Crucifixion of His Only Begotten Son, Yeshua Jesus? And did the Temple system and the Mosaic Law come to an ‘official’ end at that point, even though the Temple stood thirty some odd years afterwards?
Q. It seemed to me that the Mahdi had been sighted in Egypt during the riots. Some referred to it as the pale rider of the apocalypse, but I believe it was a sighting of the Mahdi–whether real or contrived, I cannot say. There are many reports of interesting phenomenon appearing (lying signs and wonders?) in the times we are living in. I think something “big” is about to happen in the Middle East.
Q. How do you know that Ezekiel 29:8-16 is unfulfilled prophecy? If you read the notes down below in the NIV, it says the 40 yrs is hard to pinpoint and then goes on to explain why. It sounds to me like its already happened. Could you explain why you say unfulfilled?
Q. There’s a prophecy of the destruction of Tyre in Ezekiel 26:3-21. Has this prophecy been fulfilled or is there more coming?
