Scarcer Than Pure Gold

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?

Birth Pangs And The Rapture

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?

More On Tribulation Believers

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?

Confused About Rev. 7

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?

The Timing Of The Bowl Judgments

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?

On Eagles’ Wings

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?

Who Will Be Fighting Israel After Ezekiel 38?

Q. After the battle of Ezekiel 38 with the downfall of Russia, what  Moslem nations fall with Russia ?  Assuming Damascus has already been destroyed, who do you think are the Power Nations left to battle Israel ?  Or as Ezekiel 38 ushers in the 7 year Tribulation period, are there no more major wars until the battle of Armageddon ? Without major wars involving Israel, are the remaining events of the end times only related to God’s judgments of Wrath upon mankind ?  Thank you for your site and your wise insight to coming events !

Still More On Taking The Mark

Q.  I understand that once saved it is eternal.  What if the people(s) who are saved and cannot be taken out of the hand of God take the mark?  Also, I know that in Revelation Yeshua said that He will keep us from the hour of temptation.  Can you explain these things, please?

Tribulation And Great Tribulation?

Q.  Would you clarify the Tribulation and the Great Tribulation? How I understand it is  that the whole 7 year Tribulation begins when Israel signs a (7 year) peace treaty with the anti-Christ and the Great Trib. starts halfway through (3 1/2 yrs) when the abomination of desolation occurs in the Temple by the anti-christ. You seem to focus only on this period. In your opinion, will we believers be here when the treaty is signed and be here through the first half of the Trib.? I always thought we were out of here for the whole seven years. And what will take place during the first half and what about people who are still here in America and other nations who don’t travel/move to Israel… what will they experience?

Destroying All The Nations. Follow Up

Q.  Re: “Destroying All The Nations”  According to the Scriptures you listed, I was wondering if the nations mentioned in Revelation 21:24 (“And the nations of them which are saved…”) and Revelation 22:1 might be newly-created ones, names and all.  And, they would be “governed” by those in The Body of Christ that have been given charge over them during the Millennium.  Or is that the heritage of Israel only?
