Hi! Thank you for such a great website. My question is this. The people who become believers during the tribulation will go into the millennium and reproduce etc. What happens to them and their children during and after the 1000 years? Are they transformed into heavenly bodies after the 1000 years? Are their children automatically believers after the reach the age of accountability? Where are those of us who have been raptured kept during the 1000 year reign?
I get so confused about all of this. Thanks so much for your time and work. I really hope you are able to reply.
First let me thank you for providing such a great website. What a wealth of info you have for us here! I’ve been greatly blessed by reading and studying, and am currently enjoying your Revelation Studies.
My question is: Is Michael the Restrainer? I had always been taught that the Holy Spirit was the Restrainer, but recently I read that Michael was the restrainer. They referenced Daniel 12:1 in support of this. Here’s their quote.
This statement in the Bible tells us without doubt that it is not the Holy Spirit who restrains. Daniel 12:1;
At that time, Michael, prince and guardian of your people, shall arise. (remove his protection) It shall be a time unsurpassed in distress. At that time your people shall escape.
In 2 Thess. 2:7 it says, There is one who holds him back (the lawless one) until he be TAKEN out of the way.
The Holy Spirit is God and no one will TAKE him out of the way. But Michael, guardian of the people, is a created being under the command of GOD and can be taken or commanded to remove his protection. (End of quote.)
I don’t agree with this as in regards to Michael being the restrainer, but I’m not sure how to answer the person who made the above statement. I hope you can help me out.
Thank God, Jack, for your Website because it is helping lots of brothers and sisters out there, including me, who are thirsty for the word of God.
Do you believe this event has something to do with the prophecy of Damascus and if so; in your opinion is it before the rapture or after the rapture? I feel excited in the sense that the coming of our Lord is near and at the same time I feel anxious because I am not that good servant.
Is Isaiah 17 is also talking about the damage in Israel as well? And if so do you the think it will only take few years for this to come to the tribulation; please make your answers long and please cover more details on this. By the way I am here in Saudi Arabia.
In Isaiah CH. 17 it says that nations will rush like the rushing of many waters. This alliance of nations, who are they? What battle is this referring to after Damascus is destroyed? If nations rush it must be somewhat of a pretty sizable battle. God bless you for helping us Saints out. To a believer,this website means a lot.
In light of current headlines I was wondering if there is a link between the destruction of Damascus prophesied in Isa 17:1 and the battle of Ezek 38 lead by Iran? I find it very interesting that Iran has placed their National Security Adviser in Damascus. Is there any scripture that puts the timing of the two prophesies close together?
I have a question for you regarding being filled with the Holy Spirit. Do you believe, and does the Bible support, being filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues or was it just for the book of Acts? My husband has been saved for 3 years and is still waiting for the evidence of speaking in tongues. Is it for everyone to use at all times or just certain times that the Lord decides? Any info you have would be great. Thanks!
Thank-you for this section of your web site, it has helped so much with my Bible study.
I’m am however having a real hard time seeing in the scripture that everyone who is saved is going in the rapture. When I read some of the parables such as the ten virgins and the watching servants, it seems that Jesus is separating the faithful servant from the unfaithful servant. Could this mean that even though salvation is a gift for belief, the Rapture is a gift for faithfulness?
I also find it hard to believe that Jesus would take anyone in the Rapture that doesn’t even believe the Rapture will happen, Although many that Love the Lord do not believe. Wouldn’t this be against their free will?
I was reading the question on Judas and the Anti-Christ, and am wondering if this was free will on his part to betray Jesus, or was he chosen?
I would like to think that he was chosen and that God will forgive him. It could not have been an easy thing to do when he followed Jesus for the whole time of his ministry. Did God pick him because he was not of pure intent?
Any insights you may have on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for all your Blessed work.
Re: Revelation 11:15-12. Under the subheading “Where are the Twelve Tribes?”, I was looking forward to hearing about the dispersement of the 12 tribes of Israel, not the location of the temple. Unless I misread the article, you speak of the Jews only. The Jews only made/make up 2 1/2 of the twelve tribes of Israel (Judah, Benjamin, and some of the Levites). The other ten tribes went north during the time of Jeroboam (read Kings) and were eventually conquered and dispersed by the Assyrians. The southern tribes stayed in Jerusalem until they were conquered by the Babylonians and went into captivity for 70 years. After that period, they went back to Jerusalem and built the second temple. What has happened to the other ten tribes? Many think they make up much of Europe and the U.S. — I really don’t know but it is interesting to speculate.
I guess what I am saying is that you should not refer to the 12 tribes of Israel as the “Jews”. Besides Judah and Benjamin (the Jews), there are Reuben, Gad, Issachar, Zebulun, Asher, Joseph, Simeon, Naphtali, Dan, and the other half of the descendants of Levi. While all Jews are Israelis, not all Israelis are Jews.
Regarding the question: Are all Children Saved:
What if an unborn child , aborted fetus and little children that have not reached the age of accountability, what if their “parents” are not saved or Satanists or New Agers (any unbelievers)… I assume they will be saved too…
Do we have scripture for this or must one parent at least be saved?
