The Kings Of the North And South, Follow up

Q.   It never occurred to me that when the AC declares himself to be God in the Jewish temple, the Muslims would consider that blasphemy because they thought he was claiming to be Allah. I thought he would actually unite the Muslims because they thought he was the Imam. Whose armies will defeat the king of the north and the king of the south?   I thought that would be Jesus returning with His saints.

Has Isaiah 17 Been Fulfilled?

Q.  I was preaching the other day about the Rapture when the Lord gave me an insight regarding Isaiah 17.  He said: please notice that Damascus has been nearly destroyed and will not return to be a city anymore.  I just met with an Arab friend who went there and he confirmed that.  I understand it is the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 that occurred just in front of our eyes (not in the real sense because it didn’t appear on TV). What do you think?

Trampled On By the Gentiles

Q. I’m wondering if “the generation” that sees the event mentioned in Matt. 24:34 actually started with 1948 and Israel once again being declared a nation or in 1967 began when Jerusalem was recaptured by the Jews.  So much of prophecy seem centered on Jerusalem itself; couldn’t this have been the “clock starter mentioned in Matt 24:34?

Between The Rapture And Daniel’s 70th Week

Q. A well known author recently wrote that “The one factor that is a big unknown is the amount of time that will elapse between the Rapture of the church and the signing of the covenant that will initiate the seven years of Tribulation.” To help me, can I just clarify your understanding of the Pre-Trib position on this matter? Surely the Rapture immediately triggers the Tribulation or have I misunderstood?

The Wrath Of Man?

Q.  Just when I think I have the basics of the End Times sorted out, thanks much to your teaching, I find another question.  Pre-trib. opponents are trying to justify their stand against Rev. 3:10 , by saying the Wrath of God does not start until after the Abomination of Desolation. The book I am reading attributes all the deaths to the Wrath of Man in the first 3.5 years, not to God. Thus allowing their Mid-Trib. position and still not violating Rev. 3:10. Is this a reasonable interpretation?

How Can I Convince Him God Is Real?

Q.  I’ve really enjoyed your website over the years and have told many friends about it. I have been trying to  financially support your website, as well, so many more can be reached. My question has to do with one of my 11 yr old twin boys. He is not convinced that God is real. How can I direct him to see that it’s true?

Prophecy And Prediction

Q. I have a question that I hope you can answer. Why does the Bible say it is wrong to consort with those who predict the future, when in fact it was prophecy – prediction – that told us of the coming of Jesus Christ? How can it be wrong? It feels like such a contradiction to me. Why are some called prophecy and others predictions anyway?

Two Questions About John The Baptist

Q.  I have two questions about John the Baptist, and how he was filled with the Holy Spirit in the womb.  First, what prophecies were there about John in the Old Testament? And second, (and this makes me sound a bit anti God, I’m not, I just would like to know what you thought of this) – was it not a bit imposing of God to fill John with the Holy Spirit in the womb, involuntarily? John didn’t ask for the life that he had, it seems like it was sort of forced upon him.  I can’t work out how this is justified, I’d appreciate your thoughts. Continue reading…

The 70 Weeks Of Daniel

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Many believe that Daniel 9:24-27 is the most important passage of prophecy in all of Scripture. Almost every mistake I’ve run across in studying the various interpretations of End Times Prophecy can be traced back to a misunderstanding of this passage. Let’s begin the year with an updated and expanded study of this important prophecy.
