Israeli Jews And The Temple

Q. There’s more in the news than there used to be about building the Temple, even though religious Jews have been wanting this for a long time.  Why is this?  Is it another sign of the times?

Those Who Claim To Be Jews, But Are Not

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you (Rev. 3:9).

Who are those the Lord accused of claiming to be Jews but are not?  Since Revelation 2-3 applies to the entire Church age, He may have been referring to more than one group.  Looking down through history, I’ve found several groups who have laid claim to the promises made by God to His covenant people. Some may surprise you.

The Parable Of The Ten Virgins

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

“At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.

Matthew Or Daniel, Who Is Right?

Q. The Rapture, A Secret Jesus Couldn’t Reveal, you quoted Matt. 21:43, “Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit” which is used to validate replacement theology. But Daniel 2:44 says, “In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.”  What Kingdom is taken from Israel and given to another people (presumable the Church), and what Kingdom will not be left to another people? In what way are they different?

The Fullness Of the Gentiles

Q.  I believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ.  I am a little confused about this scripture in Romans 11:25 though.  I believe there will be people from the nations of the world (Gentiles) during the 7 year and Great tribulation period to be born again/believe in Jesus as the son of God and to be saved.  My question for you is: if the Rapture doesn’t take place “until the fullness of the Gentiles come in”  then, does this “Fullness” not include the Tribulation Gentiles?

Why Does Satan Continue To Persecute The Jews?

Q.  I have a question re:Hosea 5:15.  I’ve wondered why Satan continued to persecute the Jews after the cross.  Before that I could see his efforts at Jewish destruction as an attempt to corrupt or break the bloodline required for Jesus’ lineage.  But after that, why continue pursuing the elimination of Jews?

A Secret Jesus Couldn’t Reveal, More Follow Up

Q. Re: A Secret Jesus Couldn’t Reveal.  I sincerely apologize for being so dense, but I want to be clear on this. My husband is a born again Jew, but I’m wondering if God blinded the Jews, how did he squeak through?  And then you wrote that God has different requirements for Israel than the Jews who become part of the Church.  I thought Israel was the Jews and all the other tribes?  What is the specific difference between Israel and the Jews?

Human Sacrifice In The Great Tribulation?

Q. I (we) do appreciate your knowledge of scripture and Godly sense. I know that this should not really concern those of us who are waiting for His call to ‘come up hither’. My question is; when the anti Christ sits in the temple at the mid-point claiming to be God might he will also sacrifice humans? Maybe this would be one more reason that the Jews will head out to Petra? Is there scripture that might suggest this, or is this just an over active imagination?
