Q. I would appreciate your view concerning the time-frame of the word ‘Wrath’ in I Thess.1:10 where ‘Jesus delivers us from the wrath to come’ and I Thess. 5:9 where ‘God has not appointed us to wrath’. Are these verses speaking of the Great Tribulation (3 1/2 years) or do they refer to the entire 7 years of the 70th Week of Daniel? If this wrath includes the entire 7 years where is it explained in Scripture? I personally support the Pre-Trib. view and believe the entire 7 years will be about God’s judgment, but I would like to give a more complete explanation to friends of mine who believe in the Pre-Wrath view.
Q. The church being gone, does not mean there will be no tribulation for Christians. The church being gone means that in order for the anti-christ to rule, the church must be gone, and Christ proven FALSE. The AntiChrist will perform miracles, die and raise up, just as Christ, and because of this people will believe in this new “Religion” of the AntiChrist. And if there was going to be a PRE rapture, why does Christ consistently warn us not take the mark of the beast?
Q. In “Satan’s fall from heaven” you write: “But that will end at the beginning of the Great Tribulation when he (Satan) and his forces will be forcibly and permanently expelled (from heaven).” My question: Until that happens, where might Satan and his forces dwell, apart from sowing havoc on earth? Where might their habitation be, when not on earth? Are the whole evil bunch allowed somewhere in heaven?
Q. Can I know if the tribulation saints are saved by grace through faith in Jesus like the church or by their ability to endure and keep their faith to the end or by enduring and keeping their faith based on the eternal gospel announced by the angel. Are the Jews who survive the Great Tribulation judged based on their faith in the coming messiah or their ability to endure to the end?
Q. It’s my understanding that during the rapture God takes babies out of the womb of unbelieving mothers. My question is what does the Lord do about nine months later when the world has a new round of babies in the tribulation that may not live past six years old? Are these some of the ones that will be serving in the temple day and night?
Q. I heard a prominent bible prophecy teacher say that people who believed but did not “understand” the salvation message would miss the rapture and be saved during the Tribulation. He went on to say that those who did not believe and understand would have a deluding force sent from God so they would not believe. If I understand the whole concept of being saved, it is the Holy Spirit that draws you to a spiritural understanding when you hear and believe. Also, do any gentiles get saved during the Tribulation?
Q. Please help me understand how there will be people capable of even gathering for the battle of Armageddon. I know it will happen because that is what God stated. I’m just having problems figuring out how. How enough unbelieving people would have survived to get to that point since by then a lot has happened. I just see a world completely destroyed by the wrath of God’s judgments, natural disasters & good vs evil world wars; unbelievers on the verge of death due to the demonic bug bites, no drinking water, and people hiding in caves just for survival & living in complete fear.
Q. The prophecy of Malachi 4:5 referring to Elijah coming to this earth again has always been a puzzle to me. Do you think this is a literal coming? Do you think this would be before the rapture or before the second coming of the Lord Jesus? I have looked in your archives for information on this but I don’t seem to locate anything you have written on this. If you have written an article on this please let me know how to locate it.

Q. Will we know when Satan and his angels are thrown out of heaven? The Bible says there will be war in heaven, will we hear or see this event happen?
Q. My heart has been so heavy lately thinking about my friends and family who are too stubborn to believe in Jesus and His promises. It came to me that I might help them become saved before it was too late by describing the events of the 70th week and asking them “How many of these things would you have to see with your own eyes before you believe?”
My question is, if they do become saved after the rapture, can they then “Flee into the mountains” as somewhere to be protected until the end of the tribulation? Should this even be recommended to them? Or will they simply not make it there because it wasn’t meant for them, since they are not “those who are in Judea?” Continue reading…
