Q. The question I have is from Revelation 11:3 about who are the two witnesses. Some speculate that it could be Enoch because Enoch walked with God and was not, and it could be Elijah because Elijah was taken into Heaven without dying. I myself have the belief that it will be two that we have never heard of. I also have a problem with the idea that God would send one of the old prophets back here after they have already done everything God asked them to do the first time.
Q. I just finished reading the article on Rev. 11:15-12:17, and something occurred to me at the end of it, reading your comment on the surge of water Satan uses to try to destroy the Jews. I was just thinking, I know in Turkey, they’ve built the Anatolia dam with which they’re holding back all of the water of the Euphrates now (thereby releasing the “four angels”?) Certainly when the antichrist/Mahdi comes, he’ll have control over this dam. Could the unleashing of this dam release the water the antichrist uses to cause this flood? What do you think?
Q. My question concerns the events of the end times. I have often read how the 2 witnesses and the 2nd coming of Jesus will be seen world wide because of the present day communications such as CNN and other internet technologies that allow people to see real time images. However, these events are either after or during the endtime events that seem to cause massive destruction to the earth and to the inhabitants thereof. It seems to me that there will be such destruction that any infrastructure that would allow a world wide viewing of these events would be impossible. What say you?
Q. If it’s been 61 years since Israel became a nation again and we are looking at a 70 year lifespan but yet we are still waiting for the war of Psalm 83 take place and the war Ezekiel 38 to at least start before the rapture, aren’t we running out of time for all this to happen? If the 70 years from 1948 is correct alot would have to happen by 2011 if the tribulation is to end and the second coming to take place within the 70 years.
Q. Thanks for your honesty- you seem really sincere in your writing, and not a bit frustrated or tired of the same questions over and again. That means a lot! Keep it up… I know that must be a struggle. However, I guess I do not really see how you conclude Mt. 24:34 to mean a lifetime from 1948- why not 1967? I really appreciate you andyour ministry, it has been a huge blessing to me in my walk, and my own personal study.
Q. You’ve said that the first specific sign Jesus gave to His disciples concerning His coming is in Matt. 24:15, the Abomination of Desolation. Why then do you conclude that the first sign of the End of the Age was the re-birth of Israel, and base your 70 year count down on 1948? Why wouldn’t it be 70 years from the A of D?
Q. Our Lord destroys the armies of Israel’s enemies in the Gog/Magag war to reveal that it was he and not the IDF that causes their defeat,yet He causes a great delusion to come over the people during the tribulation so that they receive the anti-Christ. Why do you think that is ?
Q. Thank you for sharing the wisdom and knowledge the Lord has Blessed you with. I watched a TV documentary recently that investigated whether the breaking of the Seven Seals had begun. The documentary reviewed recent world events (natural disasters, famines, plagues and political/financial upheavals) to insinuate the seven year tribulation has begun. There is no question that our world is certainly in a time if despair, but there have been other times of despair before now. Can you share your thoughts on this question?
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
A while back I posted a study showing why the phrase “No one Knows The Day or Hour” was meant for the 2nd Coming, not the Rapture. Even though it’s clear that the Great Tribulation is 1260 days long, and the 2nd Coming follows it, the Lord said people on Earth at the time will not know the day or hour of His coming. To emphasize this, He repeated it 4 times within the span of 28 verses (Matt. 24:36-37, 42-44, 50-51, 25:13)
A reader responded with the fascinating suggestion that this might help solve the mystery of the 1290 days and 1335 days of Daniel 12:11-12. Here’s what she wrote.
Q. This is from an article I read on another website recently. There are some interesting, and insightful articles on the site, however, this excerpt surprised me.
“The Bible tells us that Satan is the “god of this world.” He is the one guiding and directing the affairs of everyday life. Because he is a spirit, he lacks the ability to act in this physical realm. He uses men to carry out his will.”
I’ve never heard this, and it doesn’t really make sense to me. If Satan was an angel, this shouldn’t be true. The angels were able to “act” in the physical realm of Lot and his family (as well as other passages in the Bible). What are your thoughts on this?
