Q. I was thinking about the tribulation and the 7 year period. If the Millennium is going to start shortly after that 7 year period, would that rule out the nuclear weapon wars that we all fear? How would the earth be in habitable within 7 years of a nuclear war? Also, what is your view of the ‘ Illuminati’ and their drive towards their NWO? Don’t they realize they will have no one to rule over after Christ returns?
Q. How is it that you say the Ezekiel 38-39 war happens before the tribulation period? In Ezekiel 39:7 God says he is in the land of Israel after this war . The only time Jesus is in Israel physically is in the battle of Armageddon.
Q. I believed the pre-trib position for years but I changed my view when I preached through 1 Thessalonians. There is nothing in 1 Thess. 4:13-18 about a pretribulation rapture. When Paul said, “we who are alive and remain until the coming (parousia) of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep,” he uses the word parousia meaning “coming,” “arrival,” or “presence.” There is no reason why they would not be thinking that this is the second coming in glory after the tribulation.
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
I’ve received several emails lately asking for clarification of the term “Outer Darkness.” It’s mentioned a total of 4 times in the New Testament, three by name and one by implication, and always by Jesus. The term is not used any where else, Old Testament or New, by any other writer. Those who ask want to know if it’s another name for the place of eternal punishment, or if it’s some place different. And they want to know who’s going there.

Nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea (Luke 21:25).
They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?” (Rev. 6:16-17).
I saw in heaven another great and marvelous sign: seven angels with the seven last plagues—last, because with them God’s wrath is completed (Rev. 15:1).
Q. Ezekiel 38:16 states that one result of God’s defense of Israel will be that “Then all the nations will know that I am the LORD”. Would you please explain the probable extent of this prophecy? How many and who will this prophecy apply to?
Q. As a Bible teacher, I don’t think I can simply pass off questions from people I love and respect, whose integrity and character is solid and Biblical, about the bigfoot and other cryptid animal sightings. Only one hint I’ve been able to find in Scripture are Jesus’ words about the Days of Noah being similar to the End of the Age. In those Days, apparently, there were strange humans and animals including giants and others. Do we have an answer for these folks?
Q. Is there anywhere in scripture that says Daniel’s 70th week will begin immediately following the Rapture, or could, say 5 or 10 years go by after the Rapture but before the beginning of the 70th week?
Q. I thank the Lord for your ministry, keep up the good work in Him. I have always read the Olivet Discourse understanding it according to the three questions asked by the disciples to Jesus, taking it not chronologically but like as question followed by its answer. I believe all 3 questions and relative answers focus on Israel. The Church is not “really” in view there. However, when we come to Mathew 24:36-42, I believe we are talking about the rapture of the Church as a sign to Israel and if not to Israel as a whole, to the 144,000 Jews involved in evangelizing people during the Tribulation. Where am I going wrong?
