Q. I was reading Ezekiel 38 because I believe that this battle has been projected to start the 70th weeks of Daniel. I am particularly interested in Russia’s role in Ezekiel 38 since Putin is getting desperate. But, what confuses me is in two places it says that Israel will be in peace when the armies of Ezekiel 38 swoop down on it. How can that ever happen until the Anti-Christ signs a treaty that supposedly will restrain ISIS and radical groups now attacking Israel? Is the peace referred to in Ezekiel 38 really peace as we think of it?

He will be succeeded by a contemptible person who has not been given the honor of royalty. He will invade the kingdom when its people feel secure, and he will seize it through intrigue. (Daniel 11:21)
Q. I am currently reading your article “The 144,000 of Rev 7 and 14″ and this question comes to mind. Does Israel have any idea of just how many of their people come from which tribe? I am sure The Lord does and He will use that knowledge in selecting the 144,000 Jewish men for teaching in the Tribulation. That would be an interesting thing to know, I think.
Q. You’ve said that the first specific sign Jesus gave to His disciples concerning His coming is in Matt. 24:15, the Abomination of Desolation. Why then do you conclude that the first sign of the End of the Age was the re-birth of Israel?
Q. What does Daniel 12:4 mean? Is the Angel speaking of today’s fast pace of knowledge in technology and people traveling here and there in airplanes,etc? Or, is he speaking of God’s Word in prophecy being understood more clearly and people hungering for more understanding so they travel here and there looking for truth? Also who are these people? I believe the angel is speaking about those are experiencing the Great Tribulation, am I right?
Q. I have a question about Hebrews 11:23. When the parents of Moses “saw that he was beautiful” – does this mean something other than he was just too good looking to kill? Did they recognize him as the deliverer? Were they commended for their faith simply because they had the faith to disobey the edict and save their son, or does the word “beautiful” translate into something else? I’ve always wondered about this. I like what you’ve said about going back to the original language and looking for meanings.

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign. The virgin shall be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14).
Q. My jaw just dropped while reading your understanding of Jairus’ daughter and the sick woman. I never noticed the symbolism! I have a question about it. I would like your thoughts on the number 12 that is so prominent here. Woman with an issue of blood 12 yrs – 12 year old daughter. I read somewhere that 12 is the number for government. Is the number 12 in this case representative of the 12 tribes (Israel) and the 12 apostles (church)?
Q. Re: The Sick Woman And The Dead Girl. I was taught that this is a type of God’s work with Israel and the Church. But I didn’t quite grasp it. Can you expound upon this?
Q. I have recently come across mention of “The Samson Option”. Would such action even be possible in light of prophecy? I can’t imagine it would, given that the inevitable outcome appears to be the complete destruction of both Israel and whomever she would attack in such an operation.
