Doesn’t Satan Know?

Published: July 31, 2016 (Originally published: August 24, 2006)
Q

I have recently found your website and would like to thank you for your incredible insight into the book of Revelation via the Revelation Times articles you have written. They have certainly answered many questions I had and are BIG faith increasers!

My question is in regards to Satan’s knowledge of the end times. Am I correct in assuming that Satan knows of coming events such as the rapture (even though he doesn’t know the exact timing), the Gog/Magog war, the rise in power of the anti-Christ, Armageddon and the 2nd coming of Christ, and the fact that he will be bound for 1000 years and then loosed for a “little while” until he is thrown into the lake of fire?

Does he know this, and more importantly, is he ignorant enough to believe he can change the course of these events to his favor? Or does he know he’s doomed for eternal punishment no matter what he does? Hate must be his motivator?

Tithing

Published: July 31, 2016 (Originally published: August 24, 2006)
Q

This is a question about tithing. I have heard that if we don’t tithe a tenth of what we earn to God first then God will curse all of our money. Is this scriptural?

Pre-Church And Post-Church Salvation

Published: August 3, 2016 (Originally published: September 13, 2010)
Q

My question has to do with salvation during the Old Testament, New Testament, and during the tribulation. I am still a little confused about how people were saved in the Old Testament, and how they will be saved during the tribulation. I understand that in this age of grace, we are saved by trusting that Jesus died on the cross as a propitiation for our sins, but were the Old Testament patriarchs saved by believing on a coming savior, or did they have to meet certain behavioral requirements as well, in essence making it a type of faith-plus-works salvation? And will that also be the case for Tribulation believers?

Persecution Or Judgment?

Published: July 28, 2016 (Originally published: July 10, 2006)
Q

It seems to me many people are confused, about the difference between persecution and judgment.

Believers are promised persecution and it has been so since the dawn of the Church age. However, judgment (God’s Judgment) is only for unbelievers. What do you think?

Sheep And Goats

Published: July 31, 2016 (Originally published: August 28, 2006)
Q

I have been reading your messages and very blessed. Thank God for using you to spread His word to prepare believers waiting in anticipation of His coming.

Regarding the Parable of the sheep and the goat. This is my understanding: The sheep refers to friends of Israel. The goats refer to non-friends of Israel. The world is divided into two camps, one is nations for Israel, the other is nations against Israel. What do you think?

Age Of Accountability

Published: July 31, 2016 (Originally published: August 28, 2006)
Q

Some popular prophecy scholars teach that children will be included in the rapture regardless of whether they are believers or not. What scriptural basis is there for this? What is the age / event at which a child becomes old enough to be responsible for their own beliefs?

Three Views On Earth’s Creation

Published: July 31, 2016 (Originally published: August 31, 2006)
Q

I read a commentary about the book of Genesis and it says that there are three interpretation as to the age of the earth; 1. that the earth was created 7000 thousand years ago according to the genealogy in the bible literally in 7 days 2. That the earth was created millions of years ago, and 3. That the earth was created in 7 days but one day is equal to thousands of years.

These are confusing because of so much evidence that speaks about millions of years of earth’s existence. I cling to that view because God created the heavens which is the universe and the earth; but the very heaven where God lives we don’t know exactly because it is where God lives and since God is eternal then heaven is eternal and God did not create it in human understanding of creation and therefore angels were created long time ago too before the creation of man.

Please share your view on this one and thank you for sharing your wisdom to us. God bless you my faithful brother

Glorified Bodies

Published: July 27, 2016 (Originally published: July 13, 2006)
Q

First, I very much enjoy your answers and appreciate the time you spend composing them for us. As a scientist, I’m surrounded by staunch skeptics, agnostics, and fiery atheists all day everyday, and it is refreshing to see that many people out there have the same questions that I do and that there are answers to be found. I love the answers you give and hope you’ll continue.

My question is this: Out of the words of just about every end times book or even the mouths of many end times scholars, I’m always hearing a lot about what our glorified bodies will be like or how we’ll know everything or how we’ll “travel at the speed of thought” through space and time or…etc.

Is all this just imagination and hopeful creative conjecture or is there some biblical basis for it? I wouldn’t be disappointed if it IS in fact imagination since if it is we’re likely underestimating its grandeur, but I would like to see where these people get their ideas – yourself included. All that I’ve found is that Christ, after His resurrection, came and went as he pleased, but I think I must be missing something somewhere.

Does Acts 1:7 Say To Ignore Prophecy?

Published: July 27, 2016 (Originally published: July 18, 2006)
Q

I recently ran into Christians who cite Acts 1:7 as basis why we shouldn’t study prophecy or say that we are close to the end. They say “well Jesus said it isn’t for you to know the times and season.” It’s frustrating to me that so many Christians stick their head in the sand because of this one verse.

Isn’t it possible that Jesus was speaking specifically to the apostles and early church and not to the church that He knew would be alive at the time of the end? It seems to me that the church alive just before the rapture and tribulation CAN know the season. What is your take on Acts 1:7? Thanks and God bless your ministry.
