The Wrath Of God

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).

The One World Religion. Follow Up

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?

Can Islam Really Become the One World Religion?

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?

God’s Obligation To Israel

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?

The Plagues Of Egypt And The Tribulation

Q. If the plagues of Egypt are a type of Tribulation and God doesn’t spare the Isrealites until the 5th plague(in fact their lives get much worse as they begin), is this symbolic of a mid trib rapture? I believe in the pre-trib, but haven’t been able to come up with an answer to the above with any satisfaction.

Isaiah And The Rapture

Q.  I am currently reading through Isaiah.   One chapter/verse has stuck with me, and I need some insight.  Do you think that Isa 26:20-21 is speaking prophetically about the Church, or is he speaking to the remnant of Israel that will be supernaturally protected in Petra during the Great Trib?  I read the NIV, and it uses the word “rooms”.  Upon reading Isaiah’s statement, I immediately thought of John 14:2, where the NIV also uses the word “rooms”, and I understand its a more literal translation of Jesus’ statement, as opposed to Mansions in the KJV.  Could it simply be a coincidence, and Isaiah is really just speaking to Israel?

The Islamic State, A Sample Of Things To Come?

Commentary by Jack Kelley

Like most students of prophecy I’ve been watching events in Iraq for the last several weeks and wondering what they mean. And like most writers on the subject, I’ve been silent because I haven’t been sure that what’s going on is Biblically relevant. After all, not all current events are foretold in prophecy. Nor do they all fit on a timeline to the 2nd Coming. But after a fair amount of seeking the Lord on this, I think I finally have a glimpse of something worth writing about.

What Tastes As Sweet As Honey But Turns Your Stomach Sour?

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me once more: “Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.”

So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, “Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.” I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour. (Rev. 10:9-10)

Who Populates the Earth?

Q.  I have a question about the sheep from the sheep and goat judgments. The sheep are ushered into the Kingdom and eternal life after the judgment. Would these people not be immortal since they have eternal life?  I am having trouble figuring out where the mortals who repopulate the millennium come from.  Are not all tribulation believers given eternal life and therefore no longer mortal?

Form Without Substance

Q. My question concerns 2 Timothy 3:1-5. It explains the last days and the behavior of those in the world, but I don’t understand verse 5, “having the form of godliness, but denying the power thereof”. To whom does this refer, Christians perhaps, that are not living by the word of God?
