I was just reading (The End Times According To Peter) and it seems to me that in Peter’s letters he never mentions the Lord coming as in the Rapture but always looking for His second coming after the Tribulation and seems to be warning these Jewish Christians to endure and then describes what is going to happen right before He comes.
Could the disappearance/vanishing in Psalm 12 describe the Rapture? If so, then could the rest of the psalm outline the events following the Rapture, including the duration of ‘seven times?’
There are some prophecy experts who have alluded to the possibility of a significant time gap between the Rapture of the Church and the onset of the Tribulation. Do you have an opinion on this and does the Bible hint at this possibility?
I hate to throw a stick into the spokes of Jack’s article concerning Revelation, but like all pre-tribulationists, he’s mistaken about the timing of the rapture.
When a Christian dies, do they go to “sleep,” until the time Jesus comes to rapture them, or does their soul or spirit go directly to heaven? Do they wait for their resurrection body while they are up there?
I agree with you that the attack upon Israel as foretold in Ez.38-39 will come but I also think that the devastation of the army of Islam will open the door for the temple to be rebuilt. I think the temple will be built before the start of the last week of the 70 weeks as there will be virtually no opposition to its building.
Q. Thank you so much for your site! I believe that God’s hand is truly upon you and your understanding of the Bible. You offer a true service in today’s world!
I have a hard time understanding how Israel could possibly believe that they are living in peace before the battle of Ezekiel 38, since they have never known peace from there inception in 1948. Do you think that it is possible after Israel levels Damascus, as Isaiah 17 clearly spells out, and which I believe could be very soon, the Anti-Christ could come on the scene and bring this false peace? Otherwise Israel will have to take out every enemy they have in the Middle East.
Also in your true opinion how close do you think we are of going home to be with the Lord? I know no man knows the day or the hour but we can watch and know that it is drawing close!
What view do you hold based on Scripture with regard to the amount of time that may lapse between the Rapture and the revealing of Antichrist?
When the rapture takes place and the church is taken away will our bodies disappear or just our spirits? There is a huge difference in the two!
What exactly is going on with the gathering of the elect in Matthew 24:31 and Mark 13:27, since the Church has already been raptured by that point?
