I was reading your article on a pre-trib rapture. You mention that the “last trumpet” in 1 Cor. 15:52 was simply one of many references to “last trumpets” in the Bible. I would very much like to know the other references that you are referring to when you made this statement.
Q. Why does Rev. 20:5 say that this is the first resurrection?
Would this be a correct:
1) Those who died before Jesus died, and were right with God, – they have already received their glorified bodies. (Elijah and Moses were recognized when Jesus was transfigured. Although Elijah didn’t die, Moses did.)
2) Those who died after Christ was resurrected, and are saved, will be resurrected at the time of the Rapture.
3) Those who are beheaded during the tribulation are resurrected at the beginning of the millennium (Rev. 20:5)
4) After the millennium, all those who rejected Christ are resurrected for judgment.
Also, does anyone die during the millennium, – and if so, when would they be resurrected?
Many thanks for your time. I have been trying to sort this out for awhile.
I have two questions for you. I just read your
“Failed Prophecies” article. If the one about Egypt being uninhabited for 40 years is still yet to happen, does that mean the second coming is at least 40 years away? My other question concerns Ezekiel 38-39.
I’m concerned about the Tribulation Events – Survival Map where you tell those left behind after the rapture “they must pray to God saying” (and then you give them the prayer to say). I feel this is misleading because no where in the Bible are we told to repeat a prayer to be saved.
I have listened to most of your commentary and i am greatly intrigued by it. Understanding prophecy in the Bible has greatly strengthened my faith. My question, and I know I shouldn’t question God’s timing but I just cannot help but wonder, is that why has our God waited so long?
Having just read your interpretation of the ‘Parable of the Talents’, I have a question for you. You explain that this parable refers to those who bury the word of God, and therefore lose appreciation for its value and consequently their insight. If they are followers of Christ does OSAS still apply?
Q. In the end times, there’s supposed to be a great falling away. But I have no clue if it’s people of the Lord falling away, or just people in general not coming for the Lord. What do you think? What does scripture have to say? Thank you so much.
I have a savings account and a 401K – I don’t want to leave them for people to pillage during the Tribulation, but I also don’t want to be a burden on society if the Lord tarries. What is the correct balance between these two issues?
Q. Have you considered overlaying the Feasts of the LORD to the end time events? I am not a specialist in this subject but I have found though my studying the Bride of Messiah, that the Feasts of the LORD (which are His appointed times) perfectly overlay the events of the end time and the gathering of His Bride! Just a thought.
I have been studying prophecy for just over a year now, and I have a traditional pre-tribulation rapture perspective. However, there is one issue that makes me question whether I have the correct rapture position, and that is the language regarding the wrath of God.
