Q. Because there are 3 major views of when the Church will be raptured and very knowledgeable scholars on all sides ( pre, mid, and post tribulation) and because Jesus alludes to all three (Church of Philadelphia pre, Church of Thyatira mid, Laodicea post) is it feasible that all three are correct?
Q. I know that throughout scripture, we are told in what ways society will erode and decay until Jesus returns to collect His Church. Daily I find myself, mouth agape with news of how the world considers “evil as good and good as evil”. I know these things signal the closeness of Jesus’ return. While this excites me, I am saddened and angered by the foolishness, and at times even frightened by the expanding lawlessness. I pray daily that Jesus will extend protection to His children who are caught in the middle of all the madness. Yet I read and hear reports of Christians who are badly mistreated even to death all over the world. I am not sure what is the question I want to ask. I guess I just need for Jesus to show up every now and then and give me a hug and say, “Everything will be alright.” Am I alone in feeling this way?
Q. Here is my question. When we are raptured, what happens to our current body? In the movies and just in general the thought is we will just disappear. Will our bodies be left where they are at the time of the rapture, or will they disappear?
Q. I enjoy reading your articles and answers to questions daily. My question is this: How will the believing Gentiles provoke the Jews to jealousy?
Q. I have been married for 7 1/2 years and love my husband dearly. I am a believer but He is not. I have presented him with the facts and showed him scriptures in the bible to back it up. He just believes that Jesus was a good man that started one of many religions that are practiced today. He believes that when we as Christians tell someone that Jesus is the only way to salvation, that it is discriminatory against other beliefs. We have had many heated discussions in reference to this. It breaks my heart to know that his soul is at stake and I pray that the Lord will open his eyes one day.
Q. I heard a bible teacher say that the white horse in Rev. 6:2 represents the word of God and not the antichrist. He tied this to the horse being white(purity), the other three horses do not represent actual people, and a verse about Gods word being an arrow. He said that after the rapture a large number of people that had heard about it but did not get saved will turn to the Lord. This I guess is the conquering part. He also said that is it too early in the tribulation for the antichrist to be in power. Have you heard this before?
Q. I enjoy your site very much. I was just reading about vanishing in the rapture without our clothes. Do we get new bodies then also? If so, could our souls vanish, leaving our bodies behind? That would be an interesting phenomenon to explain. Thank you.
Q. When the condition for the rapture to begin is met- the full number of Gentiles have come in. What about the Jews that are saved in this Church age? Why are they not mentioned, too? Isn’t there a full number of them, too?
Q. I think we may have already entered the 7 year peace tribulation. I have been reading articles on a website that demonstrate some astounding evidence that Israel may have already signed the 7 year peace treaty, and therefore we are already in the 7 yr tribulation. There are also some great videos on You Tube that make the same point. Sounds far-fetched but there is some huge evidence there. I would really appreciate your views. If it is true its really important that Christians are made aware as we don’t have much time. Would you please review this evidence and tell me why it couldn’t possibly be true?
Q. I believe that the Bible teaches that the Lord will come for His church before the Tribulation. But I was reading an article by another Bible teacher/author who says that there are no verses to support the timing of the Rapture being before the Tribulation. He seemed to have kind of a snarky attitude about it, too. I don’t know why, as fellow believers in the Lord Jesus, why some get so worked up about it and make the claim that it’s a deception for us to believe in the pre-tribulation rapture. What do you think?
