Q. You mentioned that the believing remnant of Israel will flee to the mountains (Petra) as a hiding place to escape the Great Tribulation, but what about the Jews who remain in Israel? Will they be subject to the mark of the Beast?
A. As I understand it, Jews who fail to flee into the mountains as the Lord warned them (Matt. 24:16) will be subject to the anti-Christ’s laws and will be faced with the choice of either taking the mark or risking execution.
