More On The Full Number Of Gentiles

Q. Having read and believed that God knew from before the Creation who would come to Christ, it seems to me that he knows exactly who (therefore how many) of the Gentiles belong to Jesus. Therefore, the full number has less to do with a full complement (as with the ship’s crew metaphor) and much more to do with God waiting until every one who is known to be part of the Church (and is named and counted among the saved) is aboard.

A Chronology Of End Times Events

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

More and more as we get closer to the end, people want to see a time line of coming events. Questions about the order in which events will take place, the span of time between them and the likelihood of there being enough time for everything to happen in the time we have left are becoming more numerous with each passing week.

The Resurrection Of Believers

Q. The Old Testament saints were set free from Abraham’s bosom and then went up to paradise when Jesus went to the center of the earth for 3 days.(it must have moved because Paradise is UP after that)   However, they will not get their bodies until after the Great Tribulation ends.  So the Church saints (and angels) will ride back with Jesus at the 2nd Coming but the O.T. souls have to wait until the battle is over.  Right?  If yes, do they have to wait to get their spiritual bodies because they are connected to the 70th week by being Jewish?

A Land of Unwalled Villages

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I know I’m beginning to sound like a broken record by now, but there’s an enormous potential for a giant leap forward in End Times prophecy this summer, and this week we came breathtakingly close to witnessing its beginning.

The Rapture Seems Unfair

Q. Thank you very much for your reply on the purpose of the Church.  I have one follow up question.  Why do you think we will be so blessed (inc going in the Rapture) when we do not and will not suffer as much as those in the Tribulation ? It seems unfair to those who will be in the Tribulation !

I’m Confused

Q. I am confused when I compare two of your teachings. In the article “Signs of the Times … Times of the Signs” you indicate that the anti-Christ will rise as a charismatic leader in the aftermath of Ezekiel’s war. This makes Ezekiel’s war a pre-trib event.

Too Good To Be True?

Q. I was reading articles about the Rapture recently and came across one on the pre-wrath view.  I don’t know if you want to read it or care to, but it really upset me. It is talking about what I have feared myself. I have been asking my husband if we should not prepare for such an occurrence. He believes in the Pre-Trib rapture and I have always thought that made sense. Maybe I am just afraid it won’t be true…like it’s “too good to be true” and wishful thinking.

Is There A “Christmas” Sign?

Q. I thank you for your dedication to the study and teaching of God’s Word and your faithful service to us who need your insight and wisdom. I eagerly open your website each day to study with you. I pray for you every day that God continue to bless you and keep you. The question I have is about the timing of the rapture. I know you’ve heard the quip, “If you see Christmas merchandise in the stores, you know Thanksgiving is coming soon.” How true this is but exactly what is the “Christmas” sign that we can look for concerning the rapture?
