Q. I think Daniel’s 70th week will likely begin around the end of 2011 with the Rapture happening sometime between now and then. I don’t believe that’s the same as naming the day and hour. So if we are still here beginning of 2012 then are we to believe that there will be no rapture and that we will have to bear God’s wrath just like Noah did in the great flood?
A. No. It will just mean that we’ve guessed wrong about the timing (again). But God’s word will still be true. 1 Thes. 1:10 says Jesus will rescue us from the coming wrath, and 1 Thes. 5:9 says God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through Jesus Christ.
