I have read with interest and did my own research on your article about the Rapture and I have been convinced that there will be a pre-trib rapture. However, How do I answer someone who says that “the apostles in Jesus’ time were persecuted and went thru horrible times, so what makes us think that we will escape the Tribulation and not go thru the Tribulation?”
I tell them that the proof is in the Bible and have pointed out the scriptures that you have given, but this person still believes because the Apostles went thru bad times and were killed in Jesus’ name that we will be also. Also, this person listens to a “prophet” who does not believe in the Rapture. Any help on answering this other than what I have already pointed out in the bible would be helpful.
Re: Jewish Law And Abortion. So there is nothing in the Torah that states abortion is permitted for the health of the mother and that the child could be considered “partial life” until the child is birthed out of the mother? There are several Jewish Rabbi sites that state Jewish law permits abortion…. So this is all man made and not from the Torah? How are they passing this info as legit? And what about Exodus 21:22-23? To me, this reads that if a man causes a woman to suffer a miscarriage, the penalty of the law is a “fine.” But, if the woman also dies, then he shall give “life for a life.”
Could you explain James 2:19 in relation to salvation and works? I’ve heard many use this verse to say “see, just believing isn’t enough for salvation because the demons believe and aren’t saved”. They say your fruit is indicated by your “works”. Can you put this into proper perspective?
Just a question on sin from some one in my Sunday school class . If we should sin after saved [which is impossible not to] and die before we ask for forgiveness, are we still covered by the blood of Christ?
I enjoy your site very much. I was just reading about vanishing in the rapture without our clothes. Do we get new bodies then also? If so, could our souls vanish, leaving our bodies behind? That would be an interesting phenomenon to explain. Thank you.
Our Lord destroys the armies of Israel’s enemies in the Gog/Magag war to reveal that it was he and not the IDF that causes their defeat. Then He causes a great delusion to come over the people during the tribulation so that they receive the anti-Christ. Why do you think that is ?
I know no one is accepted apart from Christ. How are the Jews that are not Messianic since His resurrection capable of any hope for salvation? I am talking about all of them, especially oven ashes, those that screamed in agony at the hands of the nazis, in earnest cries to Jehovah yet without Christ. They burn twice for their hardened hearts? I trust God and know His answer to this question is just and perfect. Nonetheless, I long for a greater understanding of how 2000 years’ worth of Jews could possible be condemned to hell due this hardening until the Gentiles have come in. Not that I cannot accept it, just that I do not know how it is possible that they burn in hell secondary to this seemingly supernatural hardening. Lately it is physically painful to me to contemplate that this is the reality of the post resurrection Jews’ fate. I hate it
I just found your website. No offense intended, but your doctrine sounds straight out of the “Left Behind” series. Isn’t Revelation better interpreted when seen through the eyes of its earliest audience to which it was written, i.e. the seven churches of Asia Minor? There’s no end to the wacky stuff that can be attributed to Revelation when taken out of its context. It’s apocalyptic material written to give comfort to the Christians who were being persecuted by the Roman Empire, but your end times view confused a friend of mine abut that.
Re: Matthew 24:30-31 Jesus is coming in the clouds, all see him and then the angels gather the elect from the four winds. Are these the saved Jews from the nations? And are they being all summoned to Jerusalem?
