Q. In Matthew 26:64 Jesus answers the high priest,”…Hereafter shall ye see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.” Jesus is obviously referring to His second coming after the Great Tribulation and before the millennium. How can the high priest see Him coming in the clouds of heaven if unbelievers are not resurrected until after the millennium?
Q.. Thank you for your teaching and ministry, Mr. Kelley. Does Matthew 24:44 “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh” imply that the world will be calm at the time Jesus calls for His Bride – i.e. the rapture? Will He call for us at a time of calm on the earth? Continue reading…
Q. I believe in pre-tribulation rapture. From my research I believe Matt. 24:40-42 are referencing the Second Coming (and not the Rapture). Matthew 24:40-41 says, “Then there shall be two men in the field; one will be taken, and one will be left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and one will be left.” Who are the ones taken, and who are the ones left ? Also who is Jesus prophetically telling to keep watch in Matt. 24:42?
Q. Why is it important that Jesus sit at the right hand of God the father? There seem to be a lot of verses that talk about the right hand, why?
Q. Re: Matthew 24:30-31 Jesus is coming in the clouds, all see him and then the angels gather the elect from the four winds. Are these the saved Jews from the nations? And are they being all summoned to Jerusalem?
Q. I’m having trouble reconciling the “unknown day” of the Lords return with the battle of Armageddon, Matthew 24:29 says “Immediately after the tribulation of those days” which means the Great Tribulation is over, then has the fighting not stopped or does this just mean the Bowl judgments are over? Because at the Lord’s return he destroys the armies that have compassed Jerusalem, can you please clarify the sequence of events.
Q. Thanks so much for your very informative site. I have a question regarding Luke 12: 47-48. Who is being spoken of here ? Do these verses indicate punishment for lazy believers or degrees of punishment for unbelievers ?
Q. In the epistle of Jude, Chapter 1, Verses 14 &15, (KJV) he mentions a prophecy of Enoch dealing with the return of the Lord accompanied by ten thousands of His saints to execute judgment upon all. Since those saints had to be in Heaven in order to accompany the Lord back to earth, isn’t this a prophecy describing the end of the Rapture period of the Church in Heaven and the Second Coming of Christ?
Q. Re: Is The USA In Biblical Prophecy? After reading this, I had a question about the Jeremiah 30:11 prophecy. Revelation talks about the nations in several places. The mention of the nations in chapters 21:24/26 and 22:2 are the last ones recorded. The nations are very much present here, so I am wondering if this speaks of times during The Millennium only? How does Jeremiah’s prophecy fit in with the nations being destroyed? Does this happen someplace before Revelation 21:1?
Q. Re: Birth Pangs Update. I’m not sure whether Jack Kelley is still around, but I have a question about the way he presents a view that Rev. 6:12, with the moon turning red and the sun going black, represents the beginning of Daniel’s 70th Week, while the stars falling from heaven per Mt. 24:29 marks its end. What about the stars falling from heaven in Rev. 6:13? How can these events be viewed as separated in time when they are mentioned in consecutive verses as a direct consequence of the opening of the Sixth Seal, and why was the subsequent verse 13 not mentioned in Kelley’s commentary?
