Q. I’ve read your comments about reading Matthew 24 in chronological order, and I understand what you are saying. However, I have a hard time with people living life without a clue that the world is about to end after all the events of the tribulation/great tribulation. Are the events literal? Blood up to the horses bridles? The two witnesses, etc. I just can’t wrap my brain around people being that blind.
Q. I have always thought that Matt 24:37 referred to the period of time just before the Rapture, that things will be pretty much business as usual then we are raptured out of here. From what I understand from your teaching you believe it refers to the time just before the second coming not before the Rapture. It doesn’t seem to me that things will appear “normal” to people at the end of the tribulation but they could be that way before the Rapture, like now for instance. If what you are suggesting is accurate it messes up a lot of Rapture timing theory don’t you think”? Did I get something out of context here?
Q. I have read about the seven Churches and that we are at this point in history considered the Church of Laodicea. Beginning with the first Church, Ephesus, what was it’s length of time and also the the length of time of the rest of the Churches leading up to present. I am curious to know the average length of time for each of these seven Churches.
Q. Last night (a well known TV Bible teacher) revealed on his show what he believes is the span of years described as a Biblical generation. He quoted Mathew 1:17 where Mathew said there were “fourteen generations between Abraham and David, fourteen generations between David to the Babylonian exile, and fourteen generations between the exile and Jesus.” He took the number of years between each of those milestones and divided each by fourteen. The answer in each case was 52 years. He then said if that number is added to 1948, Jesus should have returned in 2000. Therefore, he places the beginning of the count at 1967 when Israel regained control over Jerusalem. This would make 2019 the year of the Lord’s return and the Rapture occurrence in 2012.
Q. If Israel is God’s chosen people and the Messianic Jews are those who have admitted they were sinners and have accepted Christ, then who will be the remnant saved in Petra?
Q. I agree with your position on Psalm 83 & Ezekiel 38-39. Your explanation makes sense scripturally. Israel is not at peace and is not a land of unwalled villages. Yet some other so called prophecy experts continue to make it a point to discredit the Psalm 83 information. This is difficult for me to understand. Why is it so hard for some to accept that maybe God is revealing new understanding through some of his other children for the edification of the whole body of Christ?
Q. I had a huge shock last Christmas when my pastor stood in front of our church and proclaimed ALL 500+ prophesies of Jesus had already been fulfilled. I really believe this man is a man of God but how on earth could he say such a thing? When I first walked into this church 8 years ago after spending 4 years looking, I felt at home. But now I am beginning to doubt that I am in the right place. I don’t know what to do. Can you help?
Q. Revelation talks about the 144,000 remnant of Jews left at the end. Do you know the current population of Jews in Israel? My understanding was that God miraculously saves them in these next few years. However, it recently dawned on me, & I started crying when I realized that it appears more and more like there will be another blood bath. Would you please explain this for me?
Q. Does the Bible say that the Rapture will occur before the Tribulation, or could the Rapture occur after the start of the Tribulation?
Q. If the fullness of the Gentiles being saved must arrive before the rapture occurs, what about all the people that are continually being born that need to be saved, how could the gentile number ever be final?
