Flesh, Bone, And Blood

Q.  In your article “Believe in Your Heart”, you mention that Jesus walked with His disciples, talked with them, ate with them and permitted them to touch Him to assure themselves He was not just a spirit, but a man with flesh and bone.  Paul writes that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 15:50).  So after the Rapture, will our glorified bodies no longer have flowing blood and a pumping heart?

Will The Angels Leave Too?

Q.  You have mentioned that after the rapture, the Holy Spirit will be taken out of the way (2 Thes. 2:7).  Does that mean all of heaven’s good angels will be taken away as well?  Planet earth will be a horrific place if the spiritual realm is 100% evil.

More Rapture Questions

Q.   Re: Matt. 24:36.  Why did Jesus not know the time of return ?  Was it because He had divested Himself of aspects of His deity in order to ‘take flesh’ and be able to die for us, or was there another reason?  I have heard pastors say that He still does not know, but surely that would make Him less than God.  He must know all that the Father knows, now that He is back with Him.   Also was His comment to do with the rapture or second coming?  I also have always believed the rapture to be number determined, but an omniscient God, who ‘sees the end from the beginning’ must surely know when that number will be completed.

Does Romans 11:25 Really Apply To The Rapture?

Q.  I love your website and have learned so very much through your explanations and teachings.  My question today is, if we as the Church are considered a called out people and are neither Jew nor Gentile anymore, why does the Romans 11:25 verse apply to the rapture?  I know that after the rapture of the Church God will return to his dealings with Israel, but was unsure if the Fullness of the Gentiles really applies to the Church.

Revelation 19-20

This entry is part 15 of 16 in the series Revelation

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The Great Tribulation has ended, Babylon has been destroyed, and Planet Earth is ready to receive her King. All that remains is the capture of that unholy trinity that’s caused all the devastation and the annihilation of their army. It sounds like a big job, but with the Lord personally directing events it won’t take long at all.

How Long, Lord?

Q. Is there any reason the rapture couldn’t happen this fall season? If  war breaks out in the Middle East it could all start the domino effect could it not?  Are there any prophecies (of the 500 that you have spoken of) that must be fulfilled that would make this fall season impossible?

Feeling Selfish

Q.   I feel that the rapture is coming very soon, and I am excited about that. This world is getting more corrupt daily. At the same time, I feel selfish for wanting to go home now. My longing for Christ feels selfish to all of the poor souls who will be left here. Certainly I am being convicted of my selfishness right? So I have been praying for God to show me where He wants me to be, mentally speaking, during this time.

Can A Person Be Post Trib And Pre Wrath?

Q.  A friend mentioned that they believe in a rapture, but a rapture that is post trib, pre-wrath (meaning the day of wrath). I have heard of both post-trib, and pre-wrath rapture theories, but not the combination of the two. I completely and firmly believe in a pre-trib rapture, with no other qualifiers, and to me it would be hard to “comfort one another with these words” if you believed in the above scenario.  Any input on this theory and how I can help my friend?

Happy To Be Here Vs. Anxious To Leave

Q.  There have been many letters to you regarding  anxiously awaiting His return vs. living each day to the fullest. I’ve got to admit, I am in a spiritual conundrum.  We are either happy to be here or anxiously awaiting Him to rescue us.  How can we be both?  If you like it on the planet, how can you be happy to leave?  If you don’t because last day events are so trying and His own are targets, do you still get a crown because you seek to be rescued?
