Q. I saw your article on “Israel at 60, whats next?” I saw that you said that it all could happen within the next 10 years…is that true? I mean, no one knows the day or hour I know but I just want to know how you came to that calculation. Also, if the Rapture is to take place before the Gog-Magog attack, and if what you say about all that happening within the next 10 years is true, then the Rapture should take place at the most within the next 3 years. What do you think?
A. I said it because from my studies I believe it to be true. I believe that Matt. 24:34 says in effect that those being born in 1948 when Israel became a nation again would still be alive at the 2nd Coming. According to Psalm 90:10 a Biblical lifespan is 70 years. 70 years from 1948 is 2018, about 10 years from now. I also believe that the Rapture could literally happen at any moment, but must precede the 2nd Coming by at least 7 years.
