Q. After the bride is caught up to meet Jesus in the air, wouldn’t there have to be some space of time for the ten kingdoms to appear with ten kings. The Bible says they must exist for a while then the 11th king, the little horn of Daniel, aka the anti-Christ will arise. Your insight on this would be deeply appreciated.
A. I believe the Rapture has to precede all of Daniel’s 70th week. But a lot of what you’re talking about could take place during the first 3 1/2 years when although much of the world will experience a period of false peace, many countries will actually be at war as the anti-Christ consolidates his power. The seal judgments of Rev. 6 speak of this. Remember, prophecy will be on “fast-forward” during that time so things will be happening in rapid order.
