Many teachings state that belief in the work of Christ is sufficient to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. I quite often read that after the rapture, many prominent Christian leaders will be left. If belief is all that is needed how would a Christian leader get left behind?
Do you have more on why Jesus is not referring to the rapture in Matt 24-25…I’ve heard some bible teachers say the same as you do but how do you explain that when the AC presents himself as god in the temple, 1260 days later Jesus should be placing his foot on the Mount of Olives.
Last year we lost our only child to cancer. He was only 29. He trusted Jesus for salvation and on his tombstone is the wonderful, assuring verse, “absent from the body; present with the Lord.” But, I would love to know if my son is awake and enjoying his new life or is he simply sleeping?
I have heard (a well known prophecy teacher) say that he believes the rapture will take place during the Feast of the Trumpets, which would probably be September 2008. I certainly believe that it could occur at any time. What are your thoughts regarding the Feast of Trumpets theory?
I have a question about Isaiah 65:17-25. I know that Isaiah 65:1-16 is about Israel and their rebellion against God, but a friend told me that verses 17-25 are not about Israel, but about the people who will inhabit the earth after the Tribulation, not necessarily Israel.
Please clarify who the Tribulation Saints are. If I understand you, at the Rapture, God will turn His attention from the gentiles back to the Hebrews. Does this mean the Tribulation Saints will all be Jewish, that the Gentiles have missed the boat so to speak?
In the Bible study of the last chapter in Daniel, you commented that God does not work with both the church and Israel at the same time. I kinda disagree with you, and you are invited to disagree with me too. There is two occasions that God did in fact work with Israel and the Church.
Q. I definitely believe the rebirth of Israel is a big sign, however, once again your pre-trib analogy with the following statements from your article is full of holes: You said in your article:
The second clue is that the people he’s telling to flee are in Judea, the name by which the Biblical land of Israel was known during the time of the Lord’s visitation. (Matt. 24:16)
And the third clue is to pray it won’t happen on a Sabbath. (Matt. 24:20) Only observant Jews would be worried about this because they can only walk 1000 paces on the Sabbath, not nearly far enough to even get out of town, let alone into the mountains.
The aforementioned in your article is just one of the several big problems concerning the false pre-trib rapture doctrine theory:
I was wondering if you had a chance to wonder about Javier Solana’s comments last week in regards to peace for Israel and it’s enemies. Solana said that he expects an agreement will come in about 9 months. If so, wouldn’t that mean the rapture of the church would be very, very soon?
I would like your opinion on angels. Why are they always pictured as having wings? I think they’re God’s heavenly messengers so when God created them they can go through space at will. What is your opinion?
