Will The Rapture Cause Economic Collapse?

Q.  I have two brief questions. Considering that we are experiencing great economic difficulty throughout the world, do you think the Rapture will occur before conditions become worse and if so then could this momentous event we are anticipating cause a global economic collapse?

Left Behind On Purpose?

Q.  Do you think that it’s possible that Jesus has chosen some of us to stay behind at the time of the rapture to help certain others?  I have had some very clear and specific dreams to that effect and have been looking for any Biblical evidence to support this, but haven’t found any.

Who’s Holding Things Back?

Q.  It is amazing to me that the world’s economy has not yet collapsed. Every nation on our planet seems to be on the verge of a total economic meltdown. This has been going on now for months. Do you believe that perhaps God is somehow propping things up to keep a total collapse from happening until He removes His people to safety? I can think of no other reason why it all hasn’t tumbled into total chaos.

Another Rapture Date?

Q.  You have pointed out that according to the bible, the years are 360 days long.  You also pointed out that it is highly possible that the second coming of Christ will happen during Rosh Hashanah 2018.  Now, computer projections tell us Rosh Hashanah 2018 will be September 9-11.  So, if we assume Christ will come no later than the last day of Rosh Hashanah, 9/11/18, and we know that the Church must be gone before Daniel’s 70th week and the 7 year tribulation period, doesn’t it make sense that the Church must be raptured on or before October 18, 2011 (which is 2520 days prior to 9/11/18, and takes into account 2 leap years)?

More On Pentecost And The Rapture

Q.  I know we’ve chatted before about the Rapture occurring on Pentecost, and I’ve read the great article you wrote on the subject. But I still think the Lord showed me the Rapture will  happen on Pentecost.  I continue to agree with you that the Rapture may be a number-specific event not tied to a Feast, but it seems to me that there’s some unfinished business with Pentecost.

Can We Enter The Kingdom But Not Inherit It?

Q.  Lately, I am hearing more and more about entering the Kingdom vs. inheriting the Kingdom.  It’s being said that all Christians will enter the Kingdom, but not all Christians will inherit the Kingdom.  The reason given is that many people get saved and do nothing for the Lord, while others give all to the Lord.  Based on the enter/inherit idea, how do we know if we’re just entering the Kingdom, or are we also inheriting the Kingdom?

More On The Partial Rapture Theory

Q.  In Revelation, only the Philadelphia church was told they would be kept “from the hour that would try the whole world.” We like to apply that to ourselves, but doesn’t that mean because the Philadelphia church was “hot” they preserved their entire generation from entering into the time of the end. In contrast, the next generation of believers, the Laodiceans, are so weak spiritually that as salt that has lost it’s savour, they have no preserving power to keep that hour  from coming forth during their lifetimes( meaning the promise of the Philadelphia church cannot be taken and applied to our generation.) Do you think it could be possible to have a partial rapture–especially as John as the beloved disciple was the one chosen to receive the revelation, and he as the” type ” of those who will be delievered–showing us only those who are in close fellowship with Jesus will be shown the “open door” in heaven?

The Church’s Last Believer

Q.  I am puzzled in regards to the rapture of the Church.  Will there be a short time when no one else will accept the Lord as savior, and at that time the Lord will call us home?  There are people still being saved everywhere, so do you believe the cut off point will be between people that will make up the Body Of Christ, and the people that God knows won’t be saved until the tribulation?

Are We Out Of Time?

Q.  I had a question about the Feast of Trumpets and it’s relation to the Rapture.  I agree that the Rapture cannot fulfill Rev. 12.   My question is: since the Second Coming would be likely to occur on the Feast of Trumpets and if you’re correct in your theory that all prophecy will be fulfilled by 2018, and we know that Daniel’s 70th week is 7 years long, should we not be looking for the Rapture to occur at or very near the Feast of Trumpets in 2011?  That would be next week.  I know I’m always looking for the Lord’s return, but the calendar math won’t add up if the Rapture takes place in, say, December.  That is, if the Second Coming is to occur by the Feast of Trumpets in 2018.
