Q. I was taught in the past and understood that the verses saying “no-one knows the day or hour” refer to the rapture. I would think that once the temple is desolate, most people can count 3 years. Where have I gone wrong?
Q. I have a question concerning Proverbs 3:19-26. Could this passage be used to support pre trib? In verse 25-26 it states the desolation of the wicked will come yet the Lord will be our confidence and our foot will not be snared… Does “desolation of the wicked” mean the attacks from the wicked to others that will come or Gods attacks towards the wicked?
Q. In Ezekiel 37:16-28 God has the prophet take two sticks and join them together into one. What it the passage really about?
Q. Something is laying heavy on my heart and was wondering if you could give me an answer. I have always felt Christians had one up on Muslims because I always thought Christ taught that it is up to you join Him or not, whereas Muslims have to join and stay a Muslim under coercion and threat of death. Deuteronomy 13:10- tells a different story. If God never changes why did he threaten death to those who refused to follow Him? Sounds like the koran. How can I tell a Muslim my God would not force you to believe in Him when He did it here?
Q. When referring to Romans 13, which talks about submitting to governing authorities, does that mean the government has the right to control people’s lives? I know there are countries like China and North Korea that often seem to do that. This has happened throughout the Roman Empire in medieval times.

Q. I did a search for pre trib rapture and came across a site claiming to destroy the pre-trib position with just one verse. What would be your response to him? I would like to know in case someone ever challenges me with this question.
Q. We had a discussion in Bible class this morning concerning the Apostle Matthias. Most of the students (as well as the teacher) think that the decision to chose Matthias to replace Judas was incorrect. The basis for their opinion is that so little is known about him and he is never mentioned again in Scripture. Also, the fact that Paul came after Matthias, which would make Paul the 13th Apostle. What do you think? Continue reading…
Q. My question has to do with the “falling away” of 2 Thes. 2:3. I understand that many will be deceived by/into the apostate church of the End Times through various avenues. If someone starts out as a true Christian but in the process of living becomes deceived and does not realize nor repent of this but continues to sincerely believe they are following Jesus even though they have fallen away from the Gospel they were saved with and their relationship with Jesus, have they lost their salvation?
Q. I love Psalm 139 but there is one word that has always confused me. …. That we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). Why fearfully and what does this mean in the context of this Psalm?
Q. When Jesus returns to carry away His bride, will all the Jews be called away as well, or only the 144,00 spoken of in the Bible?
