The Spirit of Anti-Christ

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us. (1 John 2:18-19)

1260 Days, 1290 Days, And 1335 Days

Q.  I have a few questions about Daniel 12. The one prophecy that seems to create more confusion than clarity among our group is the 75 day period between the end of the great tribulation to the 1335th day.   As you know 1260 days equals 42 months or 3-1/2 years, the last time period on the great tribulation. From Daniel 12:11-12 there seems to be 30 days missing. 1290-1260 = 30 days. Then there’s a 45 day period between the end of the 1290 days to the 1335 days.  Can you help us understand this?

Is Ezekiel In Chronological Order?

Q.  You have said in the past that Ezekiel’s prophecies are chronological.  I agree with your view.  However, Ezekiel 37: 26-27 (KJV) talks about the Lord making an everlasting covenant of peace with Israel with the Lord’s sanctuary and tabernacle in the midst of them.  Some scholars have suggested that this prophecy will see fulfillment during the millennium or at the second coming at the earliest.  I guess I am having trouble placing the events of this passage of scripture prior to the Gog and Magog war where Israel is hardly in peace.

Psalm 110

The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind: “You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.” The Lord is at your right hand; he will crush kings on the day of his wrath. He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead and crushing the rulers of the whole earth. He will drink from a brook beside the way; therefore he will lift up his head.

Will We Remember The Past?

Q.  In the New Jerusalem, we will have perfected bodies with pure minds like Jesus. On Earth now, our minds and works are imperfect (filthy rags). Will our perfected minds in the New Jerusalem even allow us to remember and look at the sins that we have done while on the old Earth?  When God says that he will wipe away the tears from our eyes, does that mean he will remove our memory of this life on earth?  Perhaps we will be so busy and excited exploring the New Jerusalem and Heaven that we won’t have the time or even care to think about our past life on earth.

What Is God Saying Here?

Q.  I was reading a recent post that referenced Ezekiel 43:6-7.  After reading the verses, I’m not certain what the Lord is saying.  Is God promising that the house of Israel will one day no longer defile the place of His throne?  I don’t understand the prophecy that is being spoken of here.

The Destiny Of Old Testament Believers

Q.  In the book 7 Things you Need to Know to Understand Bible Prophecy, which I think is excellent, you say of post rapture Jewish believers, “Along with their Old Testament counterparts they’ll dwell in Israel during the Millennium (Ezekiel 43:6-7).”

I am confused with the “Old Testament counterparts” dwelling in Israel during the Millennium because I thought that the Old Testament believers are in Heaven with Jesus right now because they are part of “the Church” and will live in the New Jerusalem together with the gentiles who accept the Lord. Can you clarify this for me?

Staying Behind?

Q. There are those of us faithful who although we accept Our Lord as Our Savior, expect to be left on Earth to to fight the Anti-Christ and his forces post Rapture. We actually picture ourselves as God’s faithful, willing to sacrifice ourselves for God. Don’t laugh, I know it sounds egotistical and somewhat like a contradiction.

It seems if we do, we’ll be damned for all time. If that’s true, why do we bother even worrying about anyone left? What good is a Thousand Years of Peace if no Faithful are even left to do God’s Work? Am I just missing something?
