Q. In a question about ISIS (the Islamic State) you referenced Daniel 11:40 which says in part, “The King of the North will storm against him with chariots, horseman, and many ships”. Will ‘chariots’ and ‘horseman’ be used in today’s technology world, so to speak, if this is speaking of the times we are in now?
Q. Matt 24:36 begins with “No one knows about that day or hour …” and, if I’m not wrong, this passage refers to Jesus Christ’s second coming, but this second coming happens exactly 1260 after the abomination of desolation and so it looks like it is precisely predictable. If that is true, could that sentence in any way be referable to the rapture, event of which we cannot know the day nor the hour?”
Q. The Lord’s richest blessing on you for your teaching and guidance given to many believers. In Daniel the prophet speaks of the anti-Christ making a covenant for one week—7 years, but in Revelation John speaks of power was given to the anti-Christ for 42 months. What happened re the other 42 months to make seven years?
Q. I recently heard a Bible teacher I respect say that Ezekiel’s battle is the same as the second seal judgment (the red horse). I know you’ve said that you think the Ezekiel battle will come before the tribulation because the Jewish people need a cause to return to old covenant worship. Other than that, is there a specific reason the second seal judgment and the battle in Ezekiel couldn’t be the same thing?
Q. I have been reading a lot on the subjects of singularity and transhumanism. I believe that secular humanist scientists are bent on achieving the ancient lie of men becoming gods and are feverishly working on the last phase of man’s evolution behind the scenes by gene manipulation and integrating man with machine. But many of the movies I’ve watched on the the mark of the beast show people reluctantly receiving the mark so they can live and eat. Do you think it’s a possibility that people will be excited to receive the mark due to the possibility of becoming a god?
Q. Is it possible that the trumpet judgements and the bowl judgments be defining the same events from a different perspective? It would seem that we are seeing God’s view and the unbelievers view of the same action for reinforcement.
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
NOTE: This Popular Post From The Past is a response to numerous questions I’ve received lately from people who have become confused about the timing and duration of God’s Wrath.
They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?” (Rev. 6:16-17).
I saw in heaven another great and marvelous sign: seven angels with the seven last plagues—last, because with them God’s wrath is completed (Rev. 15:1).
Q. Regarding your Q&A titled “Can Islam Really Become the One World Religion”, you stated in your answer that you believe that a great leader from the Islamic faith will emerge to restore peace and order. How can this future leader emerge from Islam since he’ll have no regard for any god including the god of Islam as it states in Daniel 11:37?
Q. In your study of Rev. 6 you put forward the following; “After the true Church is gone, those who also call themselves the church, but have been left behind, won’t have much trouble at all accepting Islam.” Do you still hold to this belief?
In light of Ezekiel 38-39, which you have stated, and I believe, will occur before the tribulation, God destroys the federation of Muslim countries that come against Israel. God explains in Ezekiel that all will know He is God at the end of this conflict. 1) Why would anyone seeing this believe that Islam is the true religion since it’s armies were destroyed 2) With all of the atrocities that are being committed in the name of Allah at this time, could any sane person come to that conclusion?
Q. I think Americans are expecting God to protect our country just as He does Israel, but God has no Covenant with the US and is not obligated to it. Are there Scriptures to show that judgement will come on the whole world, and God will only keep His Word to save Israel since he is bound to them?
