Does Daniel 12 Tell Us The Day?

Q.  You have said that people on earth during the tribulation will not know exactly when the Second Coming will take place [” … the Lord clearly said that believers on Earth at the time will not know the day or hour of the 2nd Coming.” (Matt. 24:42-44, Matt. 24:50, Matt 25:13)].  But doesn’t Daniel 12:11-12 give us the day for Jesus’ return?

“From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.”

Judging Israel

Q.  Are the Jews going to be judged (or rewarded) differently than the Gentiles in the “latter days”.  I realize there are different judgements at different times, such as rewards for believers, at the Rapture, the sheep/goat judgment of the nations after the tribulation, and the Great White Throne Judgment after the Millennium for nonbelievers?  But what about the Jews?

More On No One Knows

Q.  I was taught in the past and understood that the verses saying “no-one knows the day or hour” refer to the rapture.  I would think that once the temple is desolate, most people can count 3 years.  Where have I gone wrong?

Every Eye Will See Him

Q.  In Rev 1:7 it reads, “Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, and they also who pierced Him.”  But in Rev 20:11-15 it reads that the unsaved won’t be raised until the end of the Millennium.  Assuming that, “…they also who pierced Him,” were unsaved Jews (or Gentiles) at the time of the crucifixion, then how can they see Him when He comes in the clouds at the 2nd coming?

Timing The Events Of The Second Coming

Q.  When do you think the Sheep and Goats judgment will take place?  My confusion stems from Revelation 19:17-18 when the angel calls all the birds to feed on the flesh of all men.  Both obviously happen after the Glorious Appearing of Christ.  But, if all men die by the sword of Jesus Christ’s mouth and are eaten who is alive to go to the Sheep and Goat judgment?  I have considered it might be at the time of the White Throne Judgment, but I am uncertain about this!

What Is Isaiah 24 About?

Q.  Re: Isaiah 24.  To whom is the prophet referring and what time frame (s)? Is it Israel and the dispersion? Is it the last days of the tribulation? Is it the end of Christ’s millennial reign just before time passes away and eternity begins?

The Last Person Saved

Q.  We know that God has not already raptured the Church because of His long suffering,  giving every human a chance to trust His plan of salvation.  Do you think He will come back at a time when every person that will make a decision for Him will have done so, or will there be those who might have trusted Him at a later date, but be lost because He came back?  Or do you think it is simply a number thing, when the full number of Gentiles has come in?

Who Is In Charge Here?

Q.  Please help me to understand the following.  When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, they legally gave the earth over to Satan, right?  So, all throughout the years until the Lord gave Himself on the cross and rose from the dead, was Satan the real owner of planet earth, instead of God?  How could God not own the earth? It seems incredible.  It seems King Jesus bought the earth back somehow, with His blood, but Satan is still ruling it or something.  Is there any more about this you think I should know?

When Is Armageddon?

Q.  I am still confused about “Armageddon” Is that after the 1000 years?   So many think the battle at Armageddon is the end of the Great Tribulation.  Which is it?

More On The Day And Hour

Q.  Matt 24:36 begins with “No one knows about that day or hour …” and, if I’m not wrong, this passage refers to Jesus Christ’s second coming, but this second coming happens exactly 1260 after the abomination of desolation and so it looks like it is precisely predictable.  If that is true, could that sentence in any way be referable to the rapture, event of which we cannot know the day nor the hour?”
