As I listened to one of your teachings on the Rapture and Great Tribulation, a curious question that had come to mind a few month ago, came back again. Do you think there is anyone living today that may be someone like Simeon (who was promised he would not die until he saw the Messiah) regarding the Rapture of the Church?
Where will be the location of the fallout from the Ezk. 38-39 war? When the Jews flee to Petra to escape the anti-christ mid way through the tribulation, will they take a route that takes them near the catastrophic radiological damage created by the Ezk. 38-39 war?
Q. In your commentary you write “And as an aside, Michael didn’t even dare to accuse Satan during their dispute over the body of Moses (Jude 9) – (and that’s because Michael knows that Satan is God’s servant, so why would he dare to accuse him??). But he’s going to single handedly restrain Satan’s influence in the world? It doesn’t make sense.”
What does make sense is that Daniel 9:24 says “Seventy weeks have been decreed for YOUR people (Daniel’s people) and for YOUR holy city (Jerusalem)…” After reading that, Daniel 10:13, 21 and Revelation 12:7, then you read Daniel 12:1, and THEN 2 Thessalonians 2:6 and it’s obvious that Michael IS the restrainer, NOT the Holy Spirit.
Our last study began with God’s election of Israel as His chosen people. In Chapter 10 we’ll see how they came to be rejected.
Q. I came across (an) article and it made me realize that I have no idea what the LDS teach about the end times. Do you? With Mitt Romney running for president, it might be nice to know what he believes.
Does the Lord say anywhere about the enemies of Israel fighting amongst themselves? I was thinking about how the Sunnis and Shias are at war with each other but are still enemies of Israel. Also, the U.S. now says that it will speak with Iran and Syria about the current Iraq situation. Do you think that this could lead to discussions about the U.S. abandoning Israel to it’s enemies?
I have a time line problem with the Ezekiel 38 battle and the advent of the Antichrist. How do these two events relate to each other?
Q. Jack what is your take on 1 peter 4:17? This sounds to me like judgment is going to begin with the church. Where and how is this judgment going to take place? Thanks for your time!
I understand that many Biblical scholars believe Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem was on Sunday, April 6, A.D. 32; His death on the cross was Thursday afternoon, April 10; and He arose before sunrise the Sunday of April 13. Pentecost, the birth of the Church, was fifty days later. While only God knows the precise year and timing of the Rapture, is there any Biblical reference that may give a clue that it could occur on a “birthday” of the Church?
We turn now from a study of doctrine to one of prophecy. A prophecy involving both Jews and Gentiles that unlocks a secret hidden from the foundation of the world. From among both, God would create a new race of man, neither Jew nor Gentile, called the Church.
