A Unique Day

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.

Punishment For Believers Or Unbelievers?

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 ?

Did Enoch Prophesy The Rapture?

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?

More On Destroying The Nations

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?

Are Matt. 24:29 And Rev. 6:12 the Same?

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?

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!
