Q. I am wondering if the current sanctions placed on Russia by the EU and US might be the catalyst for the Ezekiel 38 war. My understanding is that Putin has a strong interest in the oil reserves in Israel. Could an economic downturn in Russia resulting from these sanctions motivate the invasion?
Q. I was wondering with all that’s going on in the middle east right now, I see it has a countdown / ticking time bomb to usher in a world war in the middle east. My question is this: Is the Ezekiel War and Psalm 83 war that is prophesied the same war??? And this war is different than Armageddon right?
Q. Some teachers who deny Psalm 83 as a prophecy claim that Israel is now living in the time of peace that will cause them to be taken by surprise when the battle of Ezekiel 38 comes. I know you believe in Psalm 83, but do you think the part about them living in peace could be true?
Q. Does Vladimir Putin have the credentials to be the Gog of Magog?
Q. Do you think Zechariah 12 is talking about Armageddon, or perhaps the Gog/Magog invasion?
Q. I still hear people saying that the next fulfillment of prophecy will be the battle of Ezekiel 38. I have heard a lot of talk lately about how the current situation in Iran could mean the battle could start today, but from what I understand of the scriptures and your articles there are still several things that have yet to happen. I am wondering what your current thinking is on the next prophetic event?
Q. Is the Peace Treaty of Dan 9:27 before or after Israel re-builds the Temple?
Q. There are some who look at Revelation 12 and match the sign that John saw in the heavens to a computer program called Starry Night that accurately tracks past and future movements of stars, planets, sun, moon, etc. and the description matches very well in Sept of 2017. If Revelation 12 is considered “mid trib” then could it mean that the beginning of the seven years would be March of 2014?
Q. I know that the anti-Christ will work out a 7 year covenant with Israel which will be a sign of the beginning of Daniel’s 70th week. I have just read Rev. 6 again (the seal judgments) and I don’t see how Israel can be at peace with all of these terrible judgments taking place. Does it mean that Israel will be at peace (literally from war only) although the opening of the 2nd seal brings war. Are these judgments solely for the Gentiles with Israel being immune? Could it be that everyone is so preoccupied with their own problems that they leave Israel alone?
Q. Re: Your comment from your answer on when Israel will recognize their Messiah. “Putting this verse (Zech. 12:10) into the chronology of the end times according to Zechariah, I think Israel will nationally acknowledge Jesus as their Messiah shortly before the end of the Great Tribulation.” I thought the Battle of Ezekiel 38 opened Israel’s eyes to Jesus. Doesn’t the Lord reveal Himself to them as He supernaturally intervenes? I am a bit confused here.
