What about believers whose bodies have been cremated and ashes deposited over the oceans or into the air and whatever particles of dust remain were consumed by animals or fish; or those who have been burned in fires and there is no body; or anything else that that would prevent there being a body to bury? I don’t know how to say this because I do not want to be flippant, but it seems there will be some in the Rapture who will not have a body with which to be reunited. Will God call into being a new body with identical traits as the living counterpart had?
Some teachers who deny Psalm 83 as a prophecy claim that Israel is now living in the time of peace that will cause them to be taken by surprise when the battle of Ezekiel 38 comes. I know you believe in Psalm 83, but do you think the part about them living in peace could be true?
I have a question regarding your article about the Great Pause. In Daniel 9:24 where it says “to seal-up vision and prophecy”, does that mean that Jesus fulfilled the vision and prophecy spoken of Him in the Old Testament, or that vision and prophecy were to be sealed-up?
Revelation 22 gives a description of our heavenly home, it’s awesome! Verse two states that “the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding it’s fruit every month.” What is your understanding on the monthly time cycles mentioned here, when we’ll then be in eternity. Won’t time cycles, as we have now, be no more?
I have a question that I just can’t seem to find the answer to, so I’ll just jump right into it- I don’t understand the Millennium period- do we as saved Christians come back in our heavenly bodies to dwell with the tribulation saints? And I also read that God removes all non believers from the earth when he comes back but yet at the end of the Millennium there is as many as the grains of sands ready to fight with Satan? And when a tribulation Saint dies a natural death during that time do they instantly get their heavenly bodies?
I have run into a belief I am not acquainted with regarding events surrounding the rapture. There are those who believe that all the blood from those who are raptured will be left for the world to see. Their reasoning is that this blood cannot enter heaven. I never thought about this as I took that we when we are changed in a moment in the twinkling of an eye, the blood will cease to exist just as the flesh will. Another argument used is that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. What is your view of this?
You recently stated “we can assume there will be no more prophecy after the end of the 70th Week, which coincides with the Second Coming.” But you also stated “I’m guessing the Lord will have additional revelation for man in the early days of the Millennium like He did for us.” By that do you mean you believe post Second Coming revelation will not be prophetic? I am confused. Please explain what you mean.
I have become very confused lately over whether or not there really will be a pre-tribulation rapture. Many if not all “post-trib rapture” sites state that since Jesus didn’t teach it, it’s therefore not so. Can you please explain?
Why do some Christians turn away from sinful behavior and clean up their act, or try to, while other Christians think it’s okay to continue sinning because they are already saved? I hope you can shed some light on this matter for me.
I know the word of God tells us not to be afraid and to not worry, but how do I and all other Christians not worry about the salvation of those we love since they have a free will to reject the Lord. This is the one area I just don’t know how to handle. So many family and friends don’t believe in God, and God won’t make anyone love him, so how do we not worry about them? Many people quote Acts 16:31 stating to “believe on Jesus and we shall be saved and thy house” as guaranteeing the salvation of our loved ones, but I don’t agree with that interpretation. I don’t believe there is a guarantee that our loved ones will be saved (accept the Lord), just that the Lord will pursue them as we pray fro them. So, how do I not worry?
