The Coming Blood Moons

Commentary by Jack Kelley

I first wrote about the so-called blood moons five years ago.  At the time a video series on the subject was being heavily marketed as revealing the date of the second coming. By now most people no longer believe that, but the series is still popular and since we’re getting close to the next one’s arrival I’ve been getting questions about the blood moons again. So here’s an update.

The California Drought

Q.  Could the current drought be a precursor of a famine in the California breadbasket? A good portion of the food Americans eat comes from California. God has in the past punished a nation filled with immoral sexual activity, not to mention abortion, with famine.  Global warming people are blaming mankind for the drought. However, I think God may be unhappy with our immoral behavior.

Will Jerusalem Be Destroyed Or Not?

Q.  I have seen several Bible verses and also questions answered here that the Lord will reign from Jerusalem in the millennium or that woman and man will sit in the streets of Jerusalem being old in age. I always believed that an earthquake will destroy the temple and its city.  Which is correct?

Incorrectly Teaching Revelation?

Q.  After taking Bible study classes and study of Scripture, I have taught Revelation in Sunday school from time to time and have taught that there will be a rapture. I know many Bible authorities teach that the only rapture will occur at the second coming. As I understand it, God says that if we wrongly teach what is in Revelation we will lose our heavenly rewards. What is your opinion?

The Fall Feasts Of Israel

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The fall is arguably the most important time of the year in Judaism. Three of Israel’s holiest days are celebrated then, and all in the space of 3 weeks. They are  Yom Teruah, also called the Feast of Trumpets, followed 10 days later by Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, and 5 days after that by Sukkot, the week long Feast of Tabernacles.  They all have both historical and prophetic fulfillment and, following the pattern of the spring feasts, the prophetic fulfillment will occur during the time of each feast. Therefore, Christians study them for glimpses into the future as well as to gain a better understanding of Jewish history and culture. This year they occur on Sept. 24-26 (Feast of Trumpets), October 3-4 (Yom Kippur) and October 8-15 (Feast of Tabernacles).

Destroying The Pre-Trib Position?

Q. I did a search for pre trib rapture  and came across a site claiming to destroy the pre-trib position with just one verse.  What would be your response to him? I would like to know in case someone ever challenges me with this question.

The Man From Eternity

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

NOTE: This study, from 2012, is a fitting addendum to our recently completed series on why the Jews reject Jesus as the Messiah.

But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times (Micah 5:2).

Everyone who has ever received a Christmas card is familiar with Micah 5:2. But here’s something you might not know about it.

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?
