Are God’s Wrath And The Great Tribulation The Same?

Published: February 7, 2010
Q

There are some Bible verses that seem to indicate that we (The Church) will be here during the tribulation or at least the first part of it. It also indicates that we are not appointed to suffer wrath. I always figured that God’s wrath and the tribulation were the same and the rapture would take place before. Some of the prophecy web sites I visit just add to my confusion but can make a good point that wrath and the tribulation are different events. I was wondering if you could shed some light on this for me.

Q

When the Jews flee to Petra in the tribulation after the AC sits in the Holy Temple, what causes them to see that Christ is their Messiah? Why not keep praying to Jehovah?


Will The Unsaved Dead Know Of Their Condition?

Published: February 6, 2010
Q

Because I have accepted Christ as my savior I know that I am going to die and be in the presence of Christ. What about people who die in sin, who were in denial and attempted to understand salvation by Grace,or who believed in something that was totally false. When they die and go to Sheol till the Great White Throne Judgment will they know immediately upon death that they were wrong and that Salvation by Faith was the true way. Will their eyes be opened or will they be in limbo until the Great White Throne?


The Ark Of The Covenant

Q

I have a question regarding the temple artifacts that are being made by the temple mount institute/newly reformed sanhedrin. If all these artifacts are being made, (I read an article where the menorah was recently made) are the Jewish people planning on rebuilding the ark of the covenant? Or have they maybe secured the original? Please express your thoughts on this.


How Old Will My Baby Be?

Q

I read your site everyday and enjoy it a lot. My question is, my first child was a boy and he was still born. When I go home to be with Jesus, will he still be a baby or do babies age in heaven? I’ve ask many pastors and none have ever had a answer. Thanks for your help.


More On Treasure In Heaven

Published: February 5, 2010
Q

I LOVE your site and it has helped me get reinvigorated about reading the Bible. My question is this, you constantly mention storing up our treasures in heaven and not worrying about earthly treasures. I have given my life to Jesus Christ the Lord and know there is nothing I can do to earn eternal salvation, that includes any accumulation of treasures I am attempt to store in heaven. So what is next? I am saved by Jesus’ blood yet I still love in this world, I still strive for financial gain to better my families comfort, and to enjoy life, vacations and family time! If God really intended us to fore go all worldly things and only store up heaven’s treasures then there would be no working Christians or Christians striving to better ourselves and our families because these are worldly things…what say you?


Using Capitals

Published: February 5, 2010
Q

I have a question in regard to 2 Thes. 2:7. My question is: “Why is ‘he’ not capitalized in the verse?” If it is referring to God as the one who restrains, and the Holy Spirit as the one who is taken out of the way, why do you think the words referencing ‘he’ are not in upper case?


What Do We Know About The Sphinx?

Published: February 4, 2010
Q

I watched a TV special on the sphinx recently. They were trying to calculate how many years and how many people it would have taken to build it. I was wondering if this could have possibly been what the pharaoh had the Israelites working on before Moses came to get them. I knew you would know the approximate timing of its construction. Do you think this and the pyramids were built before the flood? Your take and knowledge on this would be appreciated.


The Maccabean Revolt

Q

I have a question as to where in the Bible is the miracle of the 1-days supply of oil for the light lasting for 8-days until new oil could be prepared, recorded. I seem to recall that it happened during the Maccabean revolt, but have not been able to locate it.


Jacob And Esau

Published: February 3, 2010
Q

I’ve been going through a study in Genesis by (a popular Bible Teacher). If Jacob is Israel and Esau is the father of the Palestinians, and Jacob and his mother tricked his father into blessing him, when in deed the blessing was meant for Esau, no wonder the Palestinians have been so angry and defiant all these years. Can you explain to me how/why God would honor such a trick by blessing the 12 tribes of Israel and the Abrahamic covenant via Jacob when it seems that is was done so dishonestly?
