Q. My question is about Joel 2:28. I hear many people today claiming that the Lord has spoken to them through dreams and visions about how these end times are going to play out and how we need to prepare with food and arming ourselves. When I asked one of these persons to give me Bible verses to back this up they beat around the bush and I really didn’t get a verse of scripture. There are so many people claiming that they are getting words from the Lord with this method that I feel left out! The only Word I get from The Lord is in the Bible. So are they right and can this verse of scripture be used to back them up?
Q. I am still confused about “Armageddon” Is that after the 1000 years? So many think the battle at Armageddon is the end of the Great Tribulation. Which is it?
Q. Do you see any connection between the Oil and the Wine that the Good Samaritan poured into the injured man’s wounds, compared to the command in Revelation 6 during famine ” See thou hurt not the Oil and the Wine ” ? One commentator said that the latter passage referred to Christians being protected during the tribulation, but that doesn’t square with the Antichrist being given power to overcome the Trib Saints. What say you ?
Q. I was wondering why in the passages pertaining to the Doom of Babylon (Specifically Isaiah 13-14 and Jeremiah 50-51) there appears to be a contradiction when some passages say that the land would never be inhabited again by man or beast versus the land would be abandoned by men but would be inhabited by animals. Are they talking about different periods of its destruction? How are those verses reconciled with each other?
Q. It’s interesting that the “L in “ISIL” (the name by which the al-Qaeda group originally called themselves, and by which our current administration still refers to them) stands for “Levant”, which incorporates the countries (Lebanon, Syria, Israel, and Jordan, along with portions of southern Turkey and the Sinai peninsula) that are indicated in Psalm 83.
I’m sure it’s just one more of those “chasing prophecy with headlines” things, but it does make you wonder if IS going to eventually stage an attack on Israel that results in the Psalm 83 prophecy being fulfilled?
Q. Hope this won’t sound frivolous. During the Tribulation; it will take a day’s wages to buy a one day supply of food. How will people be able to pay for their other expenses? (Rent, mortgages, utilities, gasoline, etc.)
Q. I want to thank you for clearing up a lot of questions for me. Here’s another one. I read your series called The End Times According to Ezekiel Part 7 and there’s something I don’t quite understand.
You are comparing the descriptions of the New Jerusalem with Jehovah Shammah. In the last two paragraphs you state that Heaven is the New Jerusalem where we will dwell with the Lord forever, while the Holy City on Earth is Jehovah Shammah where God will dwell in the midst of His people Israel forever. This sounds like we will be separated from the Jewish people forever in eternity . Can you clear this up for me?
Q. Matt 24:36 begins with “No one knows about that day or hour …” and, if I’m not wrong, this passage refers to Jesus Christ’s second coming, but this second coming happens exactly 1260 after the abomination of desolation and so it looks like it is precisely predictable. If that is true, could that sentence in any way be referable to the rapture, event of which we cannot know the day nor the hour?”
Q. The Lord’s richest blessing on you for your teaching and guidance given to many believers. In Daniel the prophet speaks of the anti-Christ making a covenant for one week—7 years, but in Revelation John speaks of power was given to the anti-Christ for 42 months. What happened re the other 42 months to make seven years?
Q. I recently heard a Bible teacher I respect say that Ezekiel’s battle is the same as the second seal judgment (the red horse). I know you’ve said that you think the Ezekiel battle will come before the tribulation because the Jewish people need a cause to return to old covenant worship. Other than that, is there a specific reason the second seal judgment and the battle in Ezekiel couldn’t be the same thing?
