Do you have an opinion on Matt. 11:12? And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of Heaven is taken by violence, and the violent take it by force. (NKJV) I’ve heard it explained in various, even conflicting ways.
I have been hearing and reading that many people believe that the rapture is a false teaching started by a minister and a woman who had a dream in the 1800’s. This is especially held by (a well known radio personality). I really respect him and was devastated to hear this. What scriptures do pre-trib believers base their convictions on?
I just finished reading your excellent article on “Defending the Pre Trib Rapture Again” I appreciated your research very much. I would point out that I believe you quoted Daniel 12:2 as to when Old Testament Saints will be resurrected at the end of the tribulation. I think if you look at the gospels they show the old testament saints in Abraham’s bosom and they are resurrected when Christ is, that is why many graves were open and were seen by living people.
Hi, I really appreciate and enjoy your ministry, and perhaps you can provide some guidance for me on a particular issue concerning Christians who misinterpret the Bible and constantly spew “give peace a chance” pabulum. I have been continually excoriated by a handful of misguided Christians who are against all war and think that we should never stand up for ourselves and piously recite passages from the Bible to support their peacemaker dream sequences.
I realize that we live in an imperfect, fallen world, where Satan is doing his best to steal the souls of mankind. This is not going to change until Jesus returns, despite the best efforts of the Dominion/Kingdom Now groups. Man chose to go against God and do things his own way, and wars have been the end result ever since. War is hell for a reason, and no one ever wants to go to war. But, as stewards of the earth, we cannot let the weapons of Satan destroy the whole world (I am thinking of the Iranian Hitler and his nuclear capabilities).
I do not pine for the demise of any of the innocent and pray that those who live in the darkness of a religion that lacks hope will see the light, but we cannot acquiesce our own destruction in the meantime.
Is the Church not the restrainer of evil? Am I incorrect in thinking this? I am just tired arguing with these Christians who would rather put on a burka and grovel at the feet of the terrorists. I am also tired of being equated to the Nasrallahs of the world, as though I am somehow equally radical. Ha! Thus, I humbly request some guidance on this, as I have reached a boiling point of frustration.
I have been wondering, after reading many of your articles, do you think that the temple could be built before the church is raptured?
The reason I ask this is because I have come to understand that Christ inhabits the temple … but He is already inhabiting us (the believers) could it be possible that He won’t inhabit the temple again until He raptures us?
In your commentary of Revelation chapter 21, you quoted Isaiah 65:20 by saying: “The vast oceans, silent witnesses to the enormity of Noah’s flood will be hoisted back into the outer atmosphere, restoring the water vapor canopy that protected early man and allowing the return of long life spans they experienced. (Isaiah 65:20)”.
The statement, ” allowing the return of long life spans they experienced”, in my opinion, based on Revelation 21: 4 which says, “…there shall be no more death…” is not quite correct. I believe Isaiah 65:20 is referring to the millennium period.
What is your opinion on Javier Solana and his 7 year covenant with many nations that he negotiated in 1995 and he wants to re-establish beginning in Jan. of 2007? Could it be the Treaty of Peace that Israel wants?
I understand that France,Germany and Britain are stopping this from happening but Mr. Solana insists that it will take place. I also understand that Pres. Bush and the international community has given Mr. Solana the green light to find a settlement concerning the Middle East.
This man seems to be everywhere negotiating.
According to my understanding of scriptures, destruction of Damascus should precede Ezekiel 38 War. Since Ezekiel 38:5-6 does not mentioned anything about Syria. I believe destruction of Damascus will inevitably lead to Ezekiel 38 war. Appreciate receiving your comments.
I came across your web-site very recently, and I think it is not a mistake but for some purpose I came across you site. There are no accidents in the Kingdom of our Lord.
My question to you is on the subject of Christmas approaching very fast. I have been celebrating this event since I was a child and since “I was born again”, I came to know the Lord very closely. I personally feel that as a follower of Christ, we should stop celebrating this event which have been handed over to us from generation to generation.
I need to know your comments about this event. Whether we should celebrate or not? If we are to celebrate, why?
Your mails have been an immense blessings to me and many others. May the Almighty God bless your good work.
