I have read many articles stating that all who have died remain in the grave until the second coming. I have always believed “absent from body present with the Lord”. Your thoughts?
I notice that you stand with those who believe that the rapture does not have a set date, but instead a set number of believers who must be completed in order for it to take place….I was wondering if there were any clues given as to that number.
I have a question regarding the apostasy prior to the rapture. It seems to me that the spiritual climate mentioned by the Scriptures is world wide. Is there evidence of a global apostasy?
In your studies, does the #40 have anything to do with Gods covenants and the launching of dispensations? Do you find any significance in the 40th anniversary of Jerusalem Day last week, the anniversaries of Christian Pentecost (our calendar) and the Jewish Pentecost (Jewish Calendar)?
I noticed something today while reading Judges 13:17,18 that peaked my interest and connected some dots for me in scripture. Manoah asked the angel his name so that he could honor him when his word about Samson came true. The angel replied, “Why do you ask my name? It is beyond understanding.”
Since we wont get our resurrected bodies until the rapture, do you think the people in heaven now have intermediate bodies? If so what do you think they do with their time? When we are raptured and have new bodies we will spend our time ruling with Christ during the Millennium and then for eternity so we will have things to do.
I’d just like to follow up on a posting of 5/17 re: “End Times Timing”. Do you really think (those countries) are really in the final stages for THE Ezekiel’s battle?
In a question about tribulation babies, you mention human functions would continue through the tribulation for believers who are not perfected as well as non-believers. I thought all believers were perfected and would not be here through the tribulation? Please explain.
According to your article on Ez 38,39, you believe that the Church will be taken away to heaven before the battle. If that is the case the preparation for the battle would have to take place almost immediately after the rapture; since the church will spend 7 years in heaven before we come back with the Lord.
I have a question about Elisha in 2 Kings 2. Why did he pronounce a curse on children for mocking him about a physical characteristic, and then why did God honor it? What would be a lesson we today could learn from the story?
