Nero As The Anti-Christ

Q. On TV I was watching a show about the book of Revelation.  The show said that some people think that 666 was in reference to King Nero because a combination of Nero’s name and title adds up to 666 in a certain Hebrew alphabet.  And also that during that time that Nero was referred to as “the beast.”  Could you explain why this is incorrect and just coincidence?

More On Taking “The Mark”

Q.   I receive emails that say that in America the religious and non-religious will be micro chipped within the next three years.  This could include information for fitness, medical, banking, no cash payments, etc.  Is this something that involves “the Mark of the beast”?  Or does the “Mark”, as quoted in the Bible, have to include rejecting Christ and the Bible?   With all the new technology out there, what is your view on being micro-chipped for anything?

The Kingdom Of God. Follow Up

Q. I was reading your answer to the question about the Kingdom of God saying the kingdom would never be destroyed or given to another etc.  I thought that after one thousand years the earthly kingdom would be delivered up to God by Christ and the earth would be burnt up and everything made new for eternity etc ?

Do Jews Know Their Tribal Origins?

Q. Thank you for your ministry.  I suppose the 144,000 will somehow know their tribal ancestry.  Perhaps, you’ve already dealt with this subject and I haven’t located it yet.  Thank you. Continue reading…

Preparing Babylon

Q.  Doesn’t Babylon have to be re-established as an economic super power before the rapture can occur?  The way I understand it, the world will mourn the loss of Babylon when it is destroyed which indicates it would be similar in stature to New York or London.  This would indicate the rapture being further out in time versus imminent since building the city into something significant would take many years from this point.  I am eager to know what your thoughts are on this.

Al Mahdi And The Anti-Christ

Q.  I am convinced that the anti-Christ is coming through the Muslim nation.  I believe that  Europe  will be too weak to produce a man that the world will see as an effective leader who will be able to solve the worlds problems. The Muslim terrorists seem to send one group after another intent on destroying any one or thing in their paths to world domination. The Islam Mahdi will bring justice (their type of justice) to the world according to their religion.  What are the chances that the Mahdi is the anti-Christ?

Then You Will Know That I Am The Lord

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Some form of the phrase “then you will know that I am the Lord” appears in the Book of Ezekiel 50 times. Prior to the Babylonian captivity (605-535 BC) the Lord used it most often in the context of judgment, whether against Israel’s leaders (Ezekiel 11:10), the nation as a whole (Ezekiel 12:20) or its enemies (Ezek 25-35).

The Number

Q.   I notice that you stand with those who believe that the rapture does not have a set date, but instead a set number of believers who must be completed in order for it to take place. I was wondering if there were any clues given as to that number. I only remember reading “a multitude that could not be numbered” for the saints that stand behind the Lord at the final white throne judgment. Thank you for your insight and praise God there are those like you who encourage steadfast Christians to think.

Dreaming Dreams And Seeing Visions

Q.  My question is  about Joel 2:28.  I hear many people today claiming that the Lord has spoken to them through dreams and visions about how these end times are going to play out and how we need to prepare with food and arming ourselves. When I asked one of these persons to give me Bible verses to back this up they beat around the bush and I really didn’t get a verse of scripture.  There are so many people claiming that they are getting words from the Lord with this method that I feel left out! The only Word I get from The Lord is in the Bible. So are they right and can this verse of scripture be used to back them up?
