Q. What if a lot of Christians don’t get raptured, and what if Christians who don’t know about the mark of the beast take it because they don’t know about it and were left behind? Sometimes I wonder what if half of us miss the rapture because we’re not living the way God wants us to live. Doesn’t the Bible say when we get to heaven only those who are pure of heart can actually go into the kingdom and the ones who are not have to stay outside the gates and work their way in? What are yours thoughts on this?
Q. With all of the worldly/secular scientific attention focused on 2012, as well as the cross-cultural historicity of myths and legends about this time (12/21/12, specifically), I think that date or general time frame would be an excellent window for the rapture itself. Associated natural phenomena (pole/magnetic reversals, solar polar shift, etc) would be great cover and match the old Hopi legend of the Sun burning away the undesirables from the planet, leaving the enlightened more evolved to carry on. So if 2011 comes and goes, why not 12/21/12 for the rapture?
Q. Thank you so much for your insight, as I look forward to your e-mails every day. I am sincerely hoping for a pre-trib rapture, as I am sure that all of us are. Currently, I am reading an e-book that strongly supports the post-trib rapture, with many scriptural citations and inferences backing up this theory. This author presents a stong case for his position, as you do with the pre-trib assertion. Honestly, I am completely confused and don’t know what to anticipate, other than being in a “ready” status at any time. I sincerely wish that this wasn’t such a mystery, and was not an issue that is so open to interpretation. Is the Bible meant to be so ambiguous, so that we are not sure of the day and time of His coming?
Q. Enjoyed the article on Judgment. I read everyone of your articles. What if a person doesn’t realize they have sinned and the rapture occurs in this moment? Unconscious sinning I reckon is what I am talking about. Please respond!
Q. I’m a Christian and I believe the Bible is the word of God. The Bible says there is only ONE God and of course there is a trinity. My question is after the Rapture will we as Church be seeing God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost up in the Heaven? I know in the New Testament Jesus prayed to God. I’m confused because God came down in the flesh. So, where is God the whole time when Jesus was on earth? How is it possible that Jesus and God communicated with each other as there is supposed to be only ONE God. It can’t be 2 Gods talking each other!!! Follow me?
Q. If someone believes in the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, yet doesn’t believe in the Rapture event, will they still go? I have many friends who say that they don’t “necessarily” believe in the Rapture, but are true Christians who have taken Christ as their Savior.
Q. My question is about my husband of 35 years plus 3 lived together before marriage. I found out for sure last Christmas that he has a mistress and has been seeing her for at least 3 years. He is a born again christian still living with me and our 20 year old son. He takes trips with and sees his girlfriend every weekend. Visits her almost every day after work, then comes home to sleep in the guestroom. My question is, if he is living like this will he still be taken in the rapture?
Q. I am just wondering, do you think that we will have an insight or know who the anti-Christ is before the rapture? There are many speculations on who and where the anti-Christ will come from. Some say he will be of Roman descent, and others say he will be from the Mid East. I would think that the anti-Christ would be of Roman descent, since the Romans are the ones who crucified Jesus. Will God let us stay on this Earth to see any of the tribulation or at least until the anti-Christ shows his face?
Q. At the Rapture, Jesus will descend from Heaven with a shout (calling for the saints at the resurrection). (1 Thess 4:16) with the voice of the Archangel and the trump of God. I assume the trump of God is the voice of God. It seems to me that if we are changed into our new, glorified bodies at that time, how can all this happen in a twinkling of an eye? I’ve also been taught that all this will be a secret event, the Rapture, but at the Second Coming, every eye shall see him. If the Rapture is secret, won’t the Archangel’s voice and trump of God be loud enough to wake the dead, since at that time the dead will rise first?
Q. What do you believe was God’s purpose for Enoch and Elijah being caught up alive?
