Q. I know that the Rapture could occur before I finish typing. That said, (1) According to your chronology, it appears that the Rapture could occur as late as after Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17, but it will occur before Ezekiel 38-39. Is my understanding of your position correct? And (2) Do I understand correctly that the 70th week begins with the appearance of the AC at some unknown time after Ezekiel 38-39?
A. Yes, I think the rapture will precede Ezekiel’s battle. The 70th Week will begin when Israel officially acknowledges God again and the Old Covenant is reinstated. According to Ezekiel 39:22 this will happen following Ezekiel’s battle.
For reasons of his own the anti-Christ will assist in this, but it’s the reinstatement of the covenant that begins the 70th week. This could happen either before or after the Temple is rebuilt, but I don’t think it will happen before Ezekiel’s battle.
