Q. I’ve never observed 1 John 3:2 before in the context of the Rapture. “When He appears, we shall be like Him…” Sounds to me just like the translation of living believers in 1 Thess 4 and 1 Cor 15. Those who see Him at His 2nd Coming will certainly behold Him as He is–but, will not be translated into His likeness. Your thoughts ? One more question, please ! Do you equate the ISIS buildup as prelude to the imminence of the Psalm 83 battle ?
Q. What form did Jesus have before the world began and even before that…before God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) created Angels and possibly even Heaven? Was Heaven created for the Angels and the Earth for man?
Q. What if there was a married couple that began using hard drugs.Over time,in order to support their habit,they committed all types of crimes. Eventually, the wife gets saved and sincerely changes.They both die.On judgment day,while the wife will be spared judgement and the shame and embarrassment of having her life replayed,the husband will not. Now even though the wife is saved, will her indiscretions be shown during the husbands judgment, when that together they sinned? Or will her face/image be blocked out, since she accepted JESUS?
Q. I recently got into a very bad argument with someone who told me that they no longer consciously sin which threw me off. I brought up 1 John 1:8, but they said that I was wrong about my use of the verse. They got upset when I brought up something they had done to me in the past and essentially called me a liar because they no longer consciously sin and wouldn’t have done that. Is it really possible to no longer consciously sin?
Q. I believe in the pretrib rapture but I was wondering, would it be possible that if the rapture is not pretrib, and fundamental believers are disappointed by being in the trib, that they will apostasize and that is the great falling away? I hope I am being just a worry wort and too sensitive to the bad things that are happening. Is this even a valid theory? has anyone else raised this question?
Q. Re: Inspiration of Scripture. We often hear people claiming this confidently but is there really a verse that really claims that the entire Bible is the word of God? 2 Tim. 3: 16 speaks along those lines but to me it refers more to Old Testament scriptures rather than all other scriptures, because much 0f the New Testament hadn’t been written yet. What are your views on this?
Q. I have always thought the anti-Christ’s war against the saints in Daniel’s 70th Week would concern gentiles that come to know Christ after the rapture. But could that scripture also apply to Jews that come to know Christ after the rapture? Will Jews also be called ‘saints’ if they accept Christ after the rapture or is this a term reserved for Gentile believers? Or reserved for the church only? If it’s reserved for the church only that means a pre-trib rapture is not possible as the A/C will be battling the church ‘saints’.
Q. Persecution of Christians seems to be happening more and more. Do you think we will experience persecution (bodily harm) and death in America as is true in China, India, Iran, and various places in the middle East before the Rapture? A number of prophecy people think we should prepare for serious suffering and even death by beheading. Would you please tell us your thoughts about persecution?
