The Marriage Supper of The Lamb (Revelation 19:9) occurs immediately after the rapture. The Great White Throne of Judgment (Revelation 20:11-15) does not take place until after the 1,000-year reign of Jesus Christ here on earth.
Q. Will the two witnesses (Revelation 11:3) be Moses and Elijah? – Vera
No. The two witnesses will be two men that God will raise up to do His work during the final three and one-half years immediately preceding Armageddon. We know they are mortals because they will be killed by the Antichrist.
Q. Do you know which part of the world (in WWIII) will be destroyed in the last days? Could it be the US or does the Bible say?? – Fran
The Bible does not say which nations will be destroyed. However, Revelation 9:14-18 tells us that WWIII will emanate from the Euphrates River region (Middle East) and will kill one third of mankind. Consequently, it appears that most nations on earth will be affected, including the United States.
Q. Can you prove, using scripture, that there will be a physical third temple rebuilt on the temple mount in Jerusalem? – Kevin
Matthew 24:15 and 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 clearly tells us that at the Abomination of Desolation, the Antichrist will stand in the holy place or temple of God and proclaim that he is God. Without a physical Jewish temple, this would not be possible. Also, Revelation 11:1-2 states there will be a temple standing 42 months prior to the second coming of Jesus.
Q. Did Jesus have a beard? – Jim
Yes. Isaiah 50:6 states this concerning the torture of Jesus before His crucifixion, “I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.”
Q. How are you able to interpret the book of Daniel, when the Lord said, “Go thy way, Daniel: for the words [are] closed up and sealed till the time of the end.” (Daniel 12:9) – John
God told Daniel the prophecies would be sealed until “the time of the end.” We are now understanding these prophecies because the end time has arrived.
Q. Irvin constantly refers to the sixth seal, under which, one third of mankind is killed. What about the fourth seal where one fourth of the world is killed? Doesn’t he believe that the seven seals were written in chronological order? – Anna
Yes, the seven seals are written in chronological order. However, the fourth seal (Revelation 6:7-8) says that power was given unto them over a fourth part of the earth, not that they would kill one fourth of the world’s population. Furthermore, the prophecy of WWIII, which destroys one third of mankind, is the sixth trumpet found in Revelation 9:13-21.
Q. Why do the ten horns destroy Mystery Babylon in Revelation 17:16? – Bethel
In an effort to gain world power, the ten-horned beast will form an alliance with Mystery Babylon. After this world government is firmly established, the beast will feel it no longer needs the influence of the woman and will consume her.
Q. Why do you say that the Antichrist will not take over Jordan? – Polly
Daniel 11:41 tells us that Edom, Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon will escape out of the hands of the Antichrist. All of these tribes were located in the country currently known as Jordan. Edom is southern Jordan, now known as Petra. The Moab Mountains are in central Jordan and are still known by that name to this day. Ammon today is Amman, the capital of Jordan.
Q. What does the term “day of the lord” mean? – Karen
The second coming of Jesus, when He will rapture His saints, have the marriage supper of the Lamb and go to fight at the battle of Armageddon is known as the “day of the Lord.”
Q. What day of the week did Jesus raise from the dead?
Mark 16:9 says, “Now when [Jesus] was risen early the first [day] of the week,” which lets us know that Jesus rose from the dead on Sunday.
Q. Why do Jewish folks leave the “o” out of God and spell it “G-d”?
This is done out of respect for the very name and position of God. For instance, they believe that the name is so holy, that they should not write the name out in full, if there is even a chance that the document will be placed in the trash.
Q. What scriptures teach that homosexuality is a sin? – Al
- Leviticus 18:22, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.”
- Leviticus 20:13, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.”
- Romans 1:26-28, “And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.
- 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
Q. Does the wrath of God happen during or after the great tribulation? – Larry
The three and one half years of great tribulation is the wrath of Satan upon the earth. However, the vials of the wrath of God (Revelation 16), which last a very short period of time, are poured out at the end of the three and one half year tribulation period.
