Q. In your answer to the question Will the Church See the Anti-Christ? You said the anti-Christ won’t be officially revealed as such until the middle of Daniel’s 70th Week (Daniel 9:27). But using the first part of Daniel 9:27 when he “confirms the covenant with many for one week”, wouldn’t this be the first sign of the Anti-Christ? I have always believed that the man who steps out on the world stage and brings peace to the middle east by the signing of the seven year peace agreement is the Anti-Christ.
Q. At the Rapture, Jesus will descend from Heaven with a shout (calling for the saints at the resurrection). (1 Thess 4:16) with the voice of the Archangel and the trump of God. I assume the trump of God is the voice of God. It seems to me that if we are changed into our new, glorified bodies at that time, how can all this happen in a twinkling of an eye? I’ve also been taught that all this will be a secret event, the Rapture, but at the Second Coming, every eye shall see him. If the Rapture is secret, won’t the Archangel’s voice and trump of God be loud enough to wake the dead, since at that time the dead will rise first?
Q. The four horsemen seem to me to be glimpses of the conditions of things to come with the judgments starting with the 6th Seal. It’s like each horseman pulls back another curtain to show the trouble they bring to the 70th Week. They remind me of a “Forward” written in a book which is the preliminary groundwork to the story coming up. Do you see my reasoning? If not, can you help me reconcile these things that don’t seem to fit with each other?
Q. I was wondering how you consider Christians ought to stand on the matter of the rebuilding of the temple. Does the rebuilding represent a truly good thing that Christians can support? Could Satan’s strategy be to have the temple built at the centre of the earth in Jerusalem so he can usurp the LORD and take His place?
Q. On your site you state:-”One day soon, the King of the Medes will again lead a vast army against Babylon, and this time her destruction will be complete, and the Lord’s words will be fulfilled” However, Revelation 17:16-17 says “And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire, for God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by being of one mind and handing over their royal power to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.” According to your logic, the end time Medes are the beast and the 10 horns. Does not quite fit.
Q. I have a question on Revelation 8:10. The star that falls to earth. I do not understand why my particular Bible, which is a New King James version, references the fallen star back to Isaiah 14:12? This cannot be referencing Lucifer at this point…can it? I took it to be just what it says, a fallen star (meteor, asteroid, etc) that was allowed to hit the earth. Can you explain why the reference to Isaiah?
Q. You are teaching a pre-trib rapture. 1 Thes 4:16 mentions a trumpet of God as one of those things that call us to meet the Lord in the sky. If that was all I had, I could see how the rapture is pre-trib., but 1 Cor. 15:52 says at the last trumpet, and isn’t the last trumpet toward the end of the Trib. according to Rev.?
Q. I have a question about Mathew 24. How is it that the disciples asked questions about Jesus 2nd coming when they didn’t even fully understand that he would be crucified and be resurrected like he was trying to tell them? Another question I have is about Him saying the time before he comes again will be like the days of Noah, (vs36 -41) where people will be eating and drinking, but I thought the days would be violent from the all the natural disasters and judgments in Revelation? And also in the parable following this it says the master who finds his servants not watching and expecting his return would be cut to pieces, Isn’t all of Israel going to be saved at the 2nd coming?
Q. In a recent post you said, “The believers who suffer during the Great Tribulation are those who come to faith after the Church is gone, and in fact the disappearance of the Church will convince many to become believers. We know they’re not part of the Church because their destiny in Eternity is different than the Church’s.” How do you know this? Please explain the difference.
Q. I have a question about Matthew 24:19, “But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days.” I know this verse is instructions given to those living in Judea (the Jewish people) after they see ‘abomination of desolation’ which occurs at the mid-tribulation point or after the Rapture of the Church. So, does that mean that Jewish children will not be raptured? I thought all children under the age of accountability would be raptured. Thank you so much for your hard work.
