Q. Do you think Zechariah 12 is talking about Armageddon, or perhaps the Gog/Magog invasion?
Q. Who are the cowards of Revelation 21:8? One person wrote they are those that do not witness for Christ as a born again believer. I am rather timid and although I try to witness, if only to give out Bible tracts, this troubles me.
Q. How does Russia invading the Ukraine play into end time prophecy? It definitely seems likes things are moving faster.
Q. I have a question that I am struggling to get answered. John wrote down what he saw in Jesus’ Revelation whilst he was on Patmos. However, in Ch 1 v 9 he uses the past tense “I was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus” (NIV). This implies in his introduction that he is no longer on the island! If, as most commentaries who even try and address this issue think, he somehow had the letter smuggled off the island surely he would have said “I am on this island (present tense; or even present continuous tense). I know it’s a small point; but it’s bugging me!
Q. I was doing some research into Mystery Babylon and came across three videos which make me wonder if it is possible (or probable) that the anti-Christ could come from Kurdistan? Have you ever done any research into this possibility? It could explain how the Muslims could accept the anti-Christ as the Mahdi.
Q. I still hear people saying that the next fulfillment of prophecy will be the battle of Ezekiel 38. I have heard a lot of talk lately about how the current situation in Iran could mean the battle could start today, but from what I understand of the scriptures and your articles there are still several things that have yet to happen. I am wondering what your current thinking is on the next prophetic event?
Q. One thing we had wondered was, since the OT is so full of struggling twins and brothers: Cain and Abel, Esau and Jacob, etc., do you think that Lucifer and Yeshua were closer brothers in Heaven? Well, of course, as sons of Yahweh, they were brothers, but it seems there is more to this than meets the eye.
Also, I have trouble believing that we’re all going to be “raptured” and whisked off to heaven. Since there is no mention of the word “rapture” at all, some have interpreted this concept of meeting Him in the air as only for the chosen 144,000 (martyrs slain for Him) who will reign with Him (or serve as judges for mankind). When Yeshua said that the meek will inherit the earth, we take it to mean that His kingdom will be established on earth when it is restored to its former paradise under Yahweh’s Law.
Q. Is the Peace Treaty of Dan 9:27 before or after Israel re-builds the Temple?
Q. I was listening to your commentary on Rev6 the other day and it was very cool (as usual). One thing maybe you could help me with. You mentioned that the “bow” of the white rider didnt have arrows. I find out in the Greek that this bow is actually translated/literated as “shooter” and is the only occurence of this word in the NT. It has been suggested that this bow is the “covenent confirmed with the many”. I can understand this to be so.
In Genesis, God’s rainbow is a covenant with the earth and man. A “bow of/with the rain” as it were Question: is there any grammatical corroboration in either Greek or Hebrew that can definitively connect the idea of “bow” with a “covenant” and not just a weapon?
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
Part 2. The Gospel Of Grace
The word “grace” appears 170 times in the English translation of the Bible, 37 of them in the Old Testament. Of the remaining 133, only four are contained in the gospels and they all refer to the Lord Jesus (Luke 2:40, John 1:14, 16, 17). The Book of Acts contains 10 appearances, and 2 others can be found in the Book of Revelation (Rev. 1:4, Rev. 22:21) where they essentially open and close the book. That leaves 117 references to grace in the various Epistles.
