Q. Something has been weighing heavy on my mind for some time now. It seems that no one is preaching ‘preparation’. I believe there will be a rapture of the Church soon. As things are winding down and we see prophecy coming to fruition it is time for true women and men of God, I believe, to focus on being prepared for His coming. What are your thoughts on this?
Q. Could you give me a list of the scriptures showing the signs that appear before rapture takes place?
Q. I would like to know what exactly is the blessed hope? I always believed that it is the appearing of Jesus Christ as the verse which mentions the blessed hope says further in. Today, as we spoke via e-mail of the Rapture, someone told me that our blessed hope is not the Rapture, but that it is our redemption. This confused me. Can you please explain what it is?
Q. I bought your book (7 Things You Have to Know to Understand End Times Prophecy) and greatly enjoyed it. I was a post Tribulation believer, but I am starting to change my mind. My question is, what will happen right after the Rapture if it is indeed before the Tribulation? Won’t everyone see that by the disappearance of millions of people all of a sudden that the Bible is right and therefore have a Bible believing world? I was thinking that since we won’t have our resurrected bodies til the 2nd Coming that perhaps after the Rapture our spirits will go to be with the Lord and our bodies will be left on the earth. Thus appearing to the people left behind that millions of people have “died” instead of disappeared.
Q. Will babies who have been aborted go directly to the Lord as members of the Church or will they be part of another population? I imagine they would be the Church, but I’d appreciate your clarification.
Q. I noticed that you said in another article that the dead bodies of believers won’t be brought back to life at the rapture. I don’t understand because both I Thessalonians 4 and I Corinthians 15 say “the dead in Christ shall rise first.”If their bodies won’t be brought back to life how do the dead rise?
Q. How does grace after the Rapture work? The Holy Spirit is removed from the Earth, so what are the conditions of being saved during that time? Do those left behind still simply have to confess and believe that the Lord died for the sins? Or is it something different? Something more?
Q. What happens to those people left behind after the rapture? Who are those who pay with their lives for rejecting the mark of the beast?
Q. I have read your Union and fellowship theory, but am still bothered. When you are in the unchangeable union with God and the Holy spirit is bestowed upon you as he promised, but your fellowship is infrequent (being human) will you still be raptured considering the fact that you are not holy as a result of sin? If yes, people would have the idea that they can sin but would still be raptured. Please explain. I find this disturbing.
Q. Will we do creative things in eternity like art and building things or something we enjoyed from earth or will all of that cease to exist forever with us having no memory or desire of it? I can’t stand the notion of all things being absorbed or losing the ability to be creative. That is a crappy view of eternity and for that reason I don’t have hardly any belief at all. I believe creative endeavors and desires continue.
