The Ultimate Rags To Riches Story

A Feature Article by Jack Kelley

We all love this kind of story. And as much as we’re encouraged by the experience of an ordinary person who due to personal drive and perseverance rises from humble beginnings to become a leader of business or industry, we’re especially fond of stories where an absolute nobody is plucked from the faceless crowd and instantly propelled to the pinnacle of success. Great Hollywood stories have been built upon this premise, and they’ve never failed to delight us. But by far the absolute best example of this comes from the Bible and is about you.  Our story begins in the Old Testament Book of 1st Samuel with David and Jonathan.

More On Babylon And America

Q.  The United states is not  mentioned in the bible by name. One verse has really caught my attention.   I don’t know where this verse is in the bible but I do know it says. It says, the great Babylon has fallen, has fallen. Now I know when it is repeated twice that means it will happen twice. However the first Babylon has fallen and wont get back up. Could it be (by the way it is described in the bible) that America could possibly be the great Babylon?

Where Is Tyre?

Q. In Middle East Flames you said Tyre is a city in Lebanon today. Why is the city of Tyre still around, if in prophecy it said the city will never again be found?  Is it because Alexander threw the original city into the sea, and that was what the prophecy was referring to?

Timing Of Ezekiel 38

Q.  How is it that you say the Ezekiel 38-39 war happens before the tribulation period?   In Ezekiel 39:7 God says he is in the land of Israel after this war . The only time Jesus is in Israel physically is in the battle of Armageddon.

1260 Days Or 1290 Days?

Q.  Can you explain why in Revelation the second half of the tribulation is 1260 days and in Daniel the second half is 1290 days?  Some where during the last 7 years of Jacobs trouble there must be a leap year (extra 30 days) added because of the 360 day Jewish calendar.  Is that what happens?

Middle East Flames

A Feature Article by Jack Kelley

(For those of you who weren’t able to attend the Steeling The Mind conference in Denver on October 5th, here’s a written version of the presentation I gave there.)

Over the last few months I’ve wondered how much of what I’m about to say would still be prophecy by the time this conference started. But as of today it still is, so let’s begin.

Questioning The Placement Of Ezekiel’s Battle

Q. Re: the Sequence of End Times Events.  You have said that the Rapture comes first, then the Battle of Gog and Magog,  then the 70th Week of Daniel, but why wouldn’t the 70th Week begin before the Battle of Gog and Magog and not after it?  Couldn’t Gog and Magog come with the red horse in Rev. 6 after the anti-Christ has brought a false peace to Earth?

Lamb Of God, Lion Of Judah

Q.  Why is Jesus called the Lamb of God?
John 1:29 “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world”
Rev 5:6 ” Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne.”

And why is He called the Lion of Judah?
Revelation 5: 5  Then one of the elders said to me “Do not weep! See, the LION of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals”.

What Will Happen To The USA?

Q.  After the rapture and during the Great Tribulation and Millennium, what will be happening here in the U.S?  I am assuming the Jews left behind from the rapture will make their way to Israel once they see Israel win the Battle of Ezekiel 38 by God’s hand.  With the economy failing , I wonder if some Jews in the U.S will even be able to afford to get over there,  and then to flee  when the abomination that causes desolation of the temple occurs. I  wonder what becomes of nonbelievers (and non-Jews I should say) that live in the U.S.  Some of them could possibly still attain salvation, correct?   I understand that after the rapture and the church is gone, God is dealing with Israel only. I just don’t know where this leaves the United States of America , gentiles and Jews alike.
