Q. Thanks for your insight. You have really clarified for me these difficult-to-understand times. I tried to map out the upcoming battles in the middle east & was wondering about Egypt & Iraq. Are either of these countries under prophecy to attack Israel in Psalm 83 or Ezekiel 38-39? I can’t seem to figure out where they fall into the picture.
Q. I’ve read a couple articles quoting a professor at a Louisiana university that the reddish color of the oil slick is explained from release of materials compressed over millions of years that are uniquely mixing with the oil now. However, what about the prophecy of the waters being red like blood that kills everything in them? Is this prophecy suppose to happen before the 70th week begins?
Q. My question is about the verses where Peter and Paul were said to fall into a trance. I believe contemplative meditation is wrong, and I want to know what your take is on these verses: Acts 10:10 and Acts 22:17. I’m doing a study on prayer. Thanks ahead of time for you answer.
Q. The bible mentions that not everyone who says Lord Lord will enter His kingdom. I agree with you when saying this refers to people who are not 100 % believing on the price paid by Jesus Christ on the cross, but I get really confused when this statement extends to people who were prophesying, casting out demons and healing people. Do you want to tell me that there are people who are given a gift of healing, prophesying and casting out demons but not 100 % believing on the Lord?
Q. I really enjoy reading your daily answers. Your ministry continues to be a source of great inspiration for me. My question has to do with the significance of the dream that Pilate’s wife had. A minister that I greatly respect said that it does not make sense that it would be from God because, “God wanted Jesus to go to the cross and this was the means He was using to have Him crucified (Lk.22:42). Satan wanted him dead but not at this time or this way. It was his last ditch attempt. He sent Pilate’s wife the dream to have Pilate cancel Jesus’ crucifixion and prevent Scripture from taking place. I have always thought that the devil was trying to kill Jesus because he thought that he could keep Jesus from fulfilling the prophesies. Do you agree with this minister?
Q. First I want to thank you for your efforts and insight. These are truly times of both terror and joy. My question is in regards to your latest article “A Chronology Of End Times Events”. I’ve read many times that the expected time of Jesus’ return is “about 70 years” from 1948. However, wouldn’t those be Jewish (360-day) years and not our 365.25-day years? 5.25 days over 70 years trims off an entire year! Are we closer than we think?
Q. In one of your articles you state that Mary had no brothers. I don’t believe I have read this in the Bible and I wondered where you got the information.
Q. What is the principal “event” that identifies each of the Seal Judgments as our Lord opens them, one at a time? That is, when He opens the first seal, what identifying “event” will occur on earth that marks and identifies that as the First Seal? What “event” marks and identifies His opening of the Second Seal? The Third? Etc.? Also, is it not true that the Church will be Raptured before Jesus opens the First Seal?
Q. Thanks for your incredible web site; you address issues most churches today don’t breathe a word about. I am confused with the event that leads to the end of the great tribulation and the actual second coming which I think is some time afterward. What event happens that ends the great tribulation if it is not the second coming?
Q. Please explain the relationship between the Rapture and the appearance of the Anti-Christ. I have understood that the Church and the Restrainer must be gone before AC can “appear.” If the End is as near as we believe, AC must be alive in the world now, but we are still here. Therefore, the man is not the AC yet. If AC cannot be revealed until the Restrainer is gone, that seems to imply that the Church will never see the man in his role of AntiChrist. He may be around, stirring in the pot for months or years before he is revealed as the AC, and he becomes the AC only after the Rapture.
