Are They Adding Or Subtracting?

Q.  With the growing number of “believers” gravitating away from true and traditional doctrine to churches that tell them “what they want to hear” do you believe that this is adding to the total number of the church or taking away from it?

Kept From The Hour

Q. I have been wondering if Revelation 3:10b where Jesus says to the church of Philadelphia (the evangelical church) “I will also keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” is also a verification of the rapture happening before the tribulation since some of the judgments happen before the “Great Tribulation”?  Could you also explain the “hour of trial”, would that speak of the whole 7 years?

Is This The Rapture Or The Second Coming?

Q.  I am confused about some of the teachings you’ve been sharing with us regarding the men in the field and the women at the mill in Mt. 24:40-41. Is this regarding the rapture or the 2nd coming? Can you explain it again?

Staying Focused

Q.  It’s only natural, I suppose, for us to hope and pray that our Savior will soon lift us from this life and take us to be with Him. It still hurts me deeply that so many will be left behind, knowing what they are facing in eternity.  I want more to come with us, especially members of my family and friends who I know are not ready, but fear keeps slipping in because of not knowing God’s timetable and it prevents me from being more assertive in my evangelism. My question is, how do you personally stand up to this? Can you give me a little something more to hold on to?

The Time After The Rapture

Q.  After the bride is caught up to meet Jesus in the air, wouldn’t there have to be some space of time for the ten kingdoms to appear with ten kings. The Bible says they must exist for a while then the 11th king, the little horn of Daniel, aka the anti-Christ will arise.  Your insight on this would be deeply appreciated.

Why Will They Switch?

Q.  I was reading your perspective of Revelation, and in chapter 6 you say:  “After the true Church is gone, those who also call themselves the church, but have been left behind, won’t have much trouble at all accepting Islam.”  Can you please explain why people will switch to Islam after the rapture? Wouldn’t the rapture be proof of Jesus and Christianity?

Inhabiting The Universe?

Q.  Matt 24:31 says the elect will be gathered from every part of the heavens, which you believe to be the raptured church. My question is why will we have to be gathered up?  Won’t we all be in the same place?  Is this a clue that we could be  inhabiting other places in the universe. I’ve always wondered who the Saints will reign and rule over as kings. Could it be that there are places in the universe being prepared for new civilizations during eternity?

A Bible Based Church Without Prophecy?

Q. I have a question about a church I am attending. It is a wonderful, Bible-based church, and after quite a search, I have settled down into it. What is holding me back from membership is that I noticed the Pastor never mentions the Rapture or end-time prophecy. He does say general statements such as “When the Lord returns,” but that is about it.  I have searched high and low for a good, Bible-based church with loving people and I believe I have found it. I also would like to hear teaching on end times prophecy.  What should I do?

Who Is The Lord Talking About?

Q.  I have moved from the post-trib rapture and now utterly reject it after studying this for a long time.  The pre trib rapture emerges as true after much digging into the scriptures.  I know that Matt 24:31 is not the rapture but could it be that it refers to the gathering of the Israelites to Jerusalem as Isa 11:11,12 and Isa 27:12,13 indicate?  Perhaps Matt. 24:31 could also refer to previously raptured saints being gathered from one end of heaven to the other,  ready to descend on horses behind the Lord as Rev 19 indicates. It may as you say also refer to the gathering of Tribulation saints.  What do you say about all of this?
