And He that sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” (Rev. 21:5)

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him” (I Cor 2:9).

Hidden Rapture Doctrine, Follow Up

Q. When we meet the Lord in the air, Satan’s front yard, do you think we will be  able to see Satan and his demons ?  I’ve imagined them all, powerless to stop Jesus and all of us as we are passing through to heaven. I would think Satan will be enraged.

More On The “Last Trump”

Q. You are teaching a pre-trib rapture. 1 Thes 4:16 mentions a trumpet of God as one of those things that call us to meet the Lord in the sky. If that was all I had, I could see how the rapture is pre-trib., but 1 Cor. 15:52 says at the last trumpet, and isn’t the last trumpet toward the end of the Trib. according to Rev.?

Who Are Those Babies?

Q. I have a question about Matthew 24:19,  “But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days.”  I know this verse is instructions given to those living in Judea (the Jewish people) after they see ‘abomination of desolation’ which occurs at the mid-tribulation point or after the Rapture of the Church. So, does that mean that Jewish children will not be raptured? I thought all children under the age of accountability would be raptured. Thank you so much for your hard work.

The Hidden Doctrine Of The Rapture

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Over time I’ve received several questions along the line of the following one. “Why do you think that such an important occurrence as the rapture is spoken of so few times and why is it so “hidden” in scripture?”

What If You’re Wrong?

Q. For centuries men have been putting a date on the second coming, the rapture or both. And they have always been wrong, made fools of themselves and given unbelievers more reasons for not believing.  Now you’ve calculated that because the scriptures say that the generation that saw Israel become a nation will not pass away before the second coming of Christ.  And because scripture says that a lifespan is 70 years, that places the rapture no later than sometime in 2011. Which makes sense to me and I agree with that. However …

Make Them Defend Their View, Follow Up

Q. I do have to say that even though I hold to the pre-mil, pre-trib rapture belief, I know there are very godly men and women who hold other beliefs based on careful study of scripture. Isn’t it a matter of preparedness rather than salvation?  Should we let this divide the church?

With All That Noise How Can The Rapture Be Secret?

Q. I was discussing the rapture with some other guys.  One of them said that (regarding 1 Thes. 4) there’s a shout and a trumpet, so how could the rapture be secret if there’s such a big fanfare right before it happens?  Second, they said that John 14:2-3 could just as easily mean that we come back to earth to the New Creation in Rev. 21.  It seems to me that there is a bunch of stuff being skipped over for that interpretation to work. Your thoughts?

Between The Rapture And Daniel’s 70th Week

Q. Hello I love your site and i keep it bookmarked on my ipod to check nearly everyday. Here is what I can’t figure out. I know a lot of people think there may be a gap of time between the rapture and the start of the 70th week. My question is under which dispensation would this period of time be under?

Will The Rapture Precede Ezekiel 38?

Q. I have a question about the Ezekiel 38-39 war. This is a little confusing. The Lord intervenes on behalf of His land and His people and they realize His intervention has kept them from being destroyed and yet go on to build the temple. It appears that even the nations recognize that the Lord’s intervention has spared Israel, but they still do not recognize Jesus as their Messiah. Is that correct? Will the rapture take place before this war? If it does, we are closer than most think.
