Q. You have said that after the rapture the world will be left to fend for itself. What about the 144,000 Jewish servants of God and the 2 Witnesses and the Holy Spirit will Who still be on earth and also the “angels”? Revelation says many will be saved during the tribulation. Continue reading…
Q. First I would like to thank you for Gracethrufaith. It has taught me a whole lot and thanks to it am growing more In Christ. May God continue to bless you. OK, here is my question, When the rapture takes place will we be in the New Jerusalem or will we be in Heaven?
Q. My question is regarding Revelation 20:5, where it says this is the first resurrection. If this is the first, then how could there be a rapture beforehand?
Q. My question is about Christians who still smoke cigarettes, cigars, etc. In 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 it says, ” Know ye not that ye are the temple of God,and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy, for the temple of God is Holy, which temple ye are.” I am curious to know if I and my other Christian brothers and sisters are still smoking when the Rapture happens, will God destroy us, or leave us behind? What is your take on this scripture?

The letters to the churches of Philadelphia and Laodicea will bring our study on the Seven Letters to the Seven Churches of Revelation 2 and 3 to a conclusion.
Q. I have read almost every thing that I can find that you have written and I consider you to be one of, if not the, best writers on the end times. But in a comment on Rev. 6:11 you made a statement that bothers me.
“Just as the church has a fixed number to achieve before its time on Earth is fulfilled (Romans 11:25) so it is for believers who’re martyred for their faith following the Church’s disappearance.”
I know what Romans 11:25 says, but it seems that you’re saying that there is a fixed number that the Church must meet in people saved. To me this creates goal that must take place before Christ can return for His Church, making the timing of the rapture subject to a precondition. I thought the rapture could happen at any time. Have I misunderstood what you are saying?

Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.
Q. I have a question regarding the rapture. I get the impression from books, commentary I have read, and from bad movies I have seen that when the rapture occurs all those who are in Christ will disappear from the earth, however I don’t understand why God would have any use for our physical bodies. It seems to me that when the rapture occurs God will receive our spirits and that the corpses of all those who believe will the left on earth. Is my understanding incorrect?
Q. I just read a teaching on the site of a friend’s son. He has a post tribulation view. He states that “the church needs to go through the tribulation to be purified” and that pre-trib. believers will become disillusioned when we find that in truth we have to go through the tribulation.
Q. I’ve been watching a pastor on TV who is obviously post-trib and goes so far to claim we have been in the Tribulation for several years. I have no quarrel with his teaching since I feel he is on target with his basic tenets of OSAS and it doesn’t bother me about “pre” or “post”. However, I note in John 6:37-40 that Christ says He will raise us up on the last day. Doesn’t that sound like “post-trib” to you?
