What Causes All The Martyrs?

Q. I had the idea that the primary indicator of the beginning of Daniel’s 70th Week is the appearance of the AC.  So, what is the difference between his “appearance,” as a powerful, or soon-to-be-powerful, political figure, and his revealing as the AC?  Is he revealed when he commits the Abomination (which sets off the Great Tribulation), or is he revealed as the AC before that?

Does The Church Return With Jesus?

Q. In one of your studies on the Rapture, you say that in Revelation 17:14, the Church returns with Jesus at the Second Coming because He is returning with His called, chosen and faithful followers, which can only be the Church. I can recall recently that you said that the Church will not accompany Jesus at the Second Coming because a Groom does not bring His Bride into battle. Could you clarify this?

The Hidden Doctrine Of The Rapture

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Over time I’ve received several questions along the line of the following one. “Why do you think that such an important occurrence as the rapture is spoken of so few times and why is it so “hidden” in scripture?”

What If You’re Wrong?

Q. For centuries men have been putting a date on the second coming, the rapture or both. And they have always been wrong, made fools of themselves and given unbelievers more reasons for not believing.  Now you’ve calculated that because the scriptures say that the generation that saw Israel become a nation will not pass away before the second coming of Christ.  And because scripture says that a lifespan is 70 years, that places the rapture no later than sometime in 2011. Which makes sense to me and I agree with that. However …

The Millennium Sabbath

Q. Do you believe there is significance to the Millennium-Sabbath Theory and do any reputable figures in history or current prophecy sites believe this?  I know it’s not what Peter was actually referring to when he said a day is like a thousand years, but the idea sure seems to hold credibility.

Outrageous Claims?

Q. I don’t understand how you can claim that prophecy students and theologians can know when the Second Coming will take place when not even Jesus Christ himself knew. The only one that knows is God himself, so why do you, and others, make such outrageous claims?

I’m Confused, Follow Up

Q. I have a question about your answer to “I’m Confused”.   You said the introduction of the anti-Christ doesn’t officially happen until the middle of the 70th week, several years after the Church is gone. I always thought the anti-Christ signs a peace agreement with the Jews at the beginning of the 7 years which he then breaks and establishes himself in the temple, the abomination of desolation.  How can the peace agreement occur without the anti-Christ identifying himself?  Can you clarify what is wrong with my thinking?

Make Them Defend Their View, Follow Up

Q. I do have to say that even though I hold to the pre-mil, pre-trib rapture belief, I know there are very godly men and women who hold other beliefs based on careful study of scripture. Isn’t it a matter of preparedness rather than salvation?  Should we let this divide the church?

And All These Things Will Be Given To You As Well

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

There’s a lot of talk these days about how bad things are, and what we should be doing to protect ourselves. The internet is rich with advice. Some is competent and some is not, but almost all of it involves applying the ways of this world. Some advise us to stock up on stuff, so when there’s a shortage we won’t run out. Others say we should also buy precious metals to help preserve the value of our assets when inflation comes.  The list goes on.

Make Them Defend Their View

Q. A friend of mine believes that many end times things happened in the 1st century AD and I’m trying to find precise information in the Bible (more than Mt 24, rebirth of Israel in  1948 etc) that we are in the end of the end times so I can say with corroborative evidence why I believe what I believe.  Can you help?
