Q. Revelation 13:10 says, “If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity he will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword he will be killed. This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of the saints.” My question is, I know that thousands upon thousands of Tribulation Saints will be killed during this time. Does it mean that the Saints will indeed have to have “patience endurance and faithfulness,” and leave revenge to the Lord? Thank you once again for sharing your wisdom of the scripture.
Q. I was reading a post “Who Goes Where And When” and you gave the reference (Daniel 12:1-2, Rev. 20:4) to show that the Old Testament saints would be resurrected at the 2nd coming. It has been my understanding that all people before Christ will sleep through the thousand years and I did not see anything indicating differently. What am I missing?
Q. When reading Jer 30: 4-11, but specifically part of verse 11 where the Lord says He will completely destroy all the nations, does that include the believers in those nations or does it mean maybe, that there won’t be any believers?
Q. I recently read your article about the pre trib rapture in which you seemed to indicate that all the people with the exception of Israel will either be destroyed or cast off the earth after the rapture. Perhaps I read it wrong. If not what about the tribulation saints?
Q. Your comments said that God is jealous and gets angry, He is just and righteous. I agree, but what do I say to those who believe that God is Love so he can’t get jealous or angry?
Q. You have said that Matthew 24 is a Tribulation chapter, I agree that some of it will take place during that period. As a Pre Tribulation believer, how can we not see it as a two fold chapter of Rapture and Tribulation? The birth pangs then are only for the Tribulation period … signs of His Second Coming. Where do these birth pangs then fit in a Pre Tribulation Rapture? Many people are taking the “signs” (birth pangs) now as a preview of the Rapture of the Church. How can this be if they are signs of just His Second Coming?
Q. Is the group of saints mentioned in Revelation 20:4 the same group from Revelation 7:13-17? They sound the same but the wording seems to indicate they have different destinies. Can you please clarify?
Q. I am studying your Revelation series. I am confused about your commentary on Chapter 7 verses 9-17. Specifically verse 14 where it describes that they came out of the Great Tribulation. Your commentary states that technically the Great Tribulation hasn’t started yet and that it is still the first half of Daniel’s 70th week. Sounds like a contradiction. Can you explain that better to me?
Q. I was reading your e-book on Understanding Revelation (very good) but it has raised a couple of questions in chapter 16 and the bowl judgements. In verse 2 it says painful sores came on men who had the mark of the beast on them. Taken literally that means post rapture believers do not suffer these sores. Also in verse 12, the Euphrates river dries up. Again taking things literally that means the plagues of the seas and fresh water have a time limit on them. So does that mean all the plagues there is an interlude between each one, maybe to give these people chance to repent? What is your take on this?
Q. In Revelation 12:14, It says that when the Antichrist moves against Israel there will be given to Israel two wings of a great eagle so that she may fly into the place where she is nourished for time, times and half a time. Is the great eagle the United States and will we be protecting Israel?
