Taking The Mark

Published: August 28, 2020
Q

If believing Christians are forced in some way to deny Jesus and take the mark of the beast during the tribulation, will they still be forgiven and saved?

 


Will The Dead In Christ Witness The Rapture?

Q

Your website ministry is incredible! My question – will the saints who are already in heaven be eyewitnesses of the rapture or simply have knowledge of its occurrence?


The 200 Million Man Army

Q

I know China and the kings of the east are not under his authority for they gather an army of 200 million men to attack the anti-Christ. Does God use them for his purpose to destroy the Anti Christ, or will God also eliminate this Army?

Can you please explain in depth what Pharmakeia means? Is it really the use of medicine? What was Pharmakeia in Biblical times, what is Pharmakeia in modern times?


The Wars Of The Second Seal Judgment

Published: August 27, 2020
Q

You have stated that the opening of the 2nd Seal will be characterized by major wars breaking out in various places. If these wars are associated with the 2nd seal, that would mean they will occur after Ezk. 38. So who do you think they will involve, where might they be fought, and what might be the reasons for these conflicts? Do you think they will involve only Israel? With the Rapture having already occurred causing a considerable weakening of America’s defenses, wouldn’t you think this would be a time when Russia might launch an attack on us? Especially with our recent worsening relationship with them?


Understanding Romans 3:30

Published: August 26, 2020
Q

Re: Romans 3:30. ” Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.” It is obviously differentiated between “by faith” and “through faith” as if the former is for the Jews, and the latter is for us. Can you shed some light upon this?


Blessings And Penalties

Q

A friend, referring to Deut. 28:63, said that the God she knows would not rejoice over anyone to destroy and bring them to nothing. I said that she was forgetting that God’s ways are not our ways and we can’t figure His ways out with our feeble minds. Can you give me a better answer for her?


Who Or What Is Shiloh?

Published: August 26, 2020
Q

Great work. I could not function in my studies without your web site. Concerning Gen 49:10 Is this a Messianic reference? In my searches I have not found a clear rendering of the meaning of the phrase “till Shiloh comes”.


Form Without Substance

Published: August 25, 2020
Q

My question concerns 2 Timothy 3:1-5. It explains the last days and the behavior of those in the world, but I don’t understand verse 5, “having the form of godliness, but denying the power thereof”. To whom does this refer, Christians perhaps, that are not living by the word of God?


The Lord’s Appearance In Power And Glory

Published: August 25, 2020
Q

I have a question. The Bible says Jesus will return in the same manner he ascended, which is at the Mt. of Olives. Will His and our first touch back on earth happen here or at the Battle of Armageddon? I get confused since the battle at Armageddon happens first before Jesus reaches Jerusalem where the Mt of Olives is located. If at the Mt. of Olives, how does Jesus confront and engage the enemy at the battle of Armageddon? Will we be suspended in the air during the battle?
