Pregnant At The Rapture

Q. I have a question that I am pretty sure is not covered in the Bible, but I was just curious about your thoughts on the matter.
I am six months pregnant. I was thinking about what would happen if I was taken in the Rapture today. Would I still be pregnant in Heaven? I believe that if I did give birth, it would not be painful at all. But if time does not exist in Heaven, then people could not age. So would my unborn child always be a child?
I know that Heaven is a concept my mind will never be able to grasp while on Earth, but these are things I think about.

Please Help Me

Q. For a very long time now every area in my life has been touched with adversity. I’m in my mid 50’s and still waiting for a mate. I am tormented by temptation so much of the time. My financial situation has plummeted. My health also. Now I just lost my job. I am currently searching for a new church and for ministry to get involved in.
I feel very very displaced in all areas of my life. I feel like Hannah did – I’ve cried out to the Lord. I have others praying for me. I asked the Lord “show me Lord what you want me to know”. I ‘felt’ like the Lord was giving me the scripture “My Grace is sufficient for you”.
I have surrendered my life to the Lord 100% but everything upon everything is just falling apart. I just don’t understand. I feel rejected by God when I see all the people I know moving on with their lives and here I am stuck in a hole (or so it seems) for so many years. Can you help me with this?

Separation Anxiety

Q. At age 33 my wife was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer one month after discovering we were having our first baby. What are typically exciting and fun times became a different experience; wife’s prognosis poor, double mastectomy at week 6, then chemo treatments every week throughout the pregnancy. Doctors were not sure if our baby would be born healthy or would even make it to term. Our son was born premature, but quite healthy- “a miracle baby”, doctors said. My wife is now cancer free for 7 years- a miracle as well doctors now say.
Since my son was born in the most trying of circumstances we obviously have a unique bond.
He will be 7 next month and my concern is the timing of the Lord taking him or me- either by rapture or by death. I think about the Lord taking me and leaving my son without a father and I pray quite often that won’t be the case. My son is extremely sensitive and loving and would be devastated and it pains me to think about that. It also saddens me to think if the Lord ever took him before me. I don’t think I could bare the pain either. So I pray that the Lord takes us together.
Please help me to come to terms with this. Perhaps I’m not seeing the situation clearly, or perhaps it’s not my place to ask such a thing of the Lord. After all, it’s his timing- not mine.

More On The USA In Prophecy

Q. I was reading on another Christian web site some of the reasons why the US is not mentioned in Bible prophecy. One reason is that the US could have such an economic collapse that we wouldn’t be considered a world power any longer. Also possibly Russia or Iran might attack us with EMP weapons prior to their attack on Israel to prevent us from aiding Israel. Then there’s the possibility that the Rapture would have such a devastating effect on the US we would no longer be considered a world power.
I’ve looked around your web site and don’t seem to find any information on what you think might be the reason the US is not mentioned in Bible prophecy. Could you please discuss what you think is the reason(s) we are not mentioned in Bible prophecy?

Isaiah 17 Before Ezekiel 38?

Q. Is there any way to determine if Damascus will cease to be a city prior to Ezekiel 38 or after Ezekiel 38? I suppose that the possibility of its destruction concurrent with the war of Ezekiel 38 must be considered for a thorough analysis.

Judgment In America?

Q. I live in a state that does not allow same sex marriages. Experts predict the highest courts will soon rule this and other such laws illegal making these marriages legal across the land. This would be consistent with the desires of our highest elected officials but contrary to God’s laws, obviously.Many Christian leaders are saying
this would bring God’s judgment on the land. Do you believe this will happen and if so what form might the judgment take, consistent with scripture?

Comparing Romans 8:32 And Ephesians 1:3

Q. Are Romans 8.32 and Eph 1.3 related in that the latter explains the former? What else could be meant by all things if they are not spiritual in nature. There are many believers who have little or nothing material, I am wondering if this is the correct interpretation.

Soul Mates

Q. What is your opinion of the idea that our soul is androgynous when created. And that before our soul is placed in our mother’s womb, it is split into male and female. We become one part and someone else becomes the other part. Therefore, finding our one true love is the actually reunification of our soul. Making the two into one again. I think that is a beautiful thing to believe. But does rejoicing in that belief make it so?

Excluded From Heaven?

Q. I was wondering if you could please give me some insight as to where the scriptures back up the belief of not entering Heaven if you are married to a person who has been married before and the person they were married to still being alive.
I have been married for almost 10 years to a man that has divorced 2 times in the past. However, I am told that since the 2 women he had married before are still alive, this makes me an adulteress because technically in the eyes of God, his wife is really the first lady he had married.
We are both saved now and have been for almost 3 years, I do not want anything to be in the way of my going to Heaven or his. Could you please help me to understand this better.
