CHILDREN AND THE RAPTURE
the most often asked topics has to do with
children and what will happen to them at
the Rapture and during the tribulation.
CHILDREN will go in the Rapture (Joel
2:16; Matthew 18:3; 19:14; 1 Peter 2:2).
ONE knows for sure what the "age of
accountability" is. The
Bible DOES NOT say.
GENERALLY SPEAKING, it's somewhere from

of God, right and wrong.
Explain IN SIMPLE LANGUAGE WHO JESUS IS
(God Incarnate) and WHAT HE DID (died to
save us from our sins).
if they wish to receive Him as Savior and
God, and LEAD THEM in a SIMPLE prayer to
invite Him into their hearts.
Teenagers ARE ACCOUNTABLE for their
need to receive Christ into their hearts,
as do adults.
What about embryos
and fetuses in their mothers' wombs?
mother is Christian, she is going and
mother is UNSAVED, I
that case she,
evidently, will stay.
I haven't found a Scripture that clearly
states what would happen to the baby or
babies she's carrying.

and women will conceive and give birth.
child born during the tribulation -
regardless of whether he or she dies during
that time or survives - is
saved by Jesus' Perfect Work of Redemption
and by His Most Precious Blood.
Will children born during the tribulation be
forced to take the mark of the beast, or
will their parents be forced to give the
mark to their children?
There's nothing in Scripture to indicate
that it will be required for children.
Revelation 13:16-17 says:
"And he causes
ALL, both small and great, rich and poor,
free and slave, to receive a mark in their
right hand, or in their foreheads:
no man might BUY OR SELL, except
he that had the mark,
or the name of the beast, or the number of
causes ALL, small and great, rich and
does NOT, however, say "young and old".
children, evidently, will be EXEMPT from
taking the mark.
main purpose for receiving the mark will be to
be able to buy or sell.
Since children DO NOT engage in such
activities (and the
tribulation children would be VERY young, 3
years of age or younger), I'm
quite certain parents won't be required to
give it to them.
Moreover, Revelation 14:9 says:
third angel followed them and said in a
loud voice: "If
anyone WORSHIPS THE BEAST and his image and
RECEIVES HIS MARK on
the forehead or on the hand....
Children three years of age or younger DO
NOT engage in conscious WORSHIP, nor in
buying or selling.
Furthermore, the angel warns about RECEIVING the
mark, clearly showing it
will be A DELIBERATE CHOICE.
-- hypothetically speaking
-- it were offered to children, or FORCED
ON THEM by their parents, no
three year old would remotely understand
what's involved or what the mark stands
NO WAY that God would hold them accountable
What about children
of UNBELIEVING PARENTS?
CHILDREN will be raptured. Their
UNBELIEVING parents will remain on earth,
WITHOUT their children.

of God, not once, but MANY,
MANY, MANY TIMES.
The Bible commands us to be continually
being filled with the
Spirit (Ephesians 5:18-19).
means that Jesus
and His most Holy Spirit MUST BE
All the time!
However, it all
starts with the "FIRST TIME".
we receive Jesus into our hearts as Lord,
He penetrates our spirit with His, and
deposits His Incorruptible Seed within us.
That's when we get born-again. That's
what STARTS the whole process.

It's another, to be FILLED
We've all heard the analogy
of the "half full, half empty" glass.
Our spirit can be half-full of God's
Spirit, or it CAN BE FILLED TO CAPACITY,
TILL IT OVERFLOWS.
we're filled, His Spirit simply overflows
and comes gushing out of us in the form of
unknown tongues (Acts
2:4; 10:46; 19:6).
So, the INITIAL
MANIFESTATION of being filled with God's
Spirit is SPONTANEOUS utterance in tongues.
Thereafter, we use tongues in
our private devotions, for our own
spiritual edification, NOT in public.
Christians are not to use tongues
for "show", or to brag about spiritual
don't make anyone superior.
That fullness of the Spirit
sometimes ACCOMPANIES the new birth. For
most of us, it comes spontaneously and
effortlessly AFTER being born-again.
God's doing ENTIRELY. So,
all it takes on our part is asking God in
childlike TRUST, AND BEING WILLING and
YIELDED TO RECEIVING His Gift of unknown
tongues by Grace.
Jesus promised that if we, being evil,
give good gifts to our children, HOW
MUCH MORE will He give His Holy Spirit, to

IN THE DETAILS
recently as November 25, 2012 I wrote a
message offering a number of possible
scenarios that might lead to the
construction of the third temple.
That's a question that comes up CONSTANTLY.
I said at the time that although the
Bible is clear THAT THERE WILL BE a third
one knew for sure how the temple would get
built or when.
However, the Lord recently hit me with
a revelation concerning the temple, which
has been in Scripture for the past two

me, that "if

Steve also was amazed and as
excited as I!
He said that would explain THE SPEED at
which they build the Temple. And that it
could be built in virtually no time...
So, we now KNOW
it is built by Israel,
not by Antichrist, as Ephrem
the Syrian suggested
in his 4th century manuscript.
we also KNOW its
construction begins when the tribulation
starts, and the Two Witnesses appear.
The Two Witnesses are undoubtedly
connected to the building of the temple, as
verse 3 says:
"And I will give power
to MY TWO WITNESSES, and they will prophesy
for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth."
The ALTAR mentioned in verse one already
It's 3 meters wide by 3 meters long and 2
meters tall. It
was built by the Temple Institute two and a
half years ago.
Revelation 11:1-2 also says that Jews
will be worshipping at that altar -
which will be placed at the location of the
former temples - EVEN BEFORE the third
temple is built.
It's also mentioned
in the Book of Joel 2:15-17:
the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, CALL
A SOLEMN ASSEMBLY:
PEOPLE, sanctify the congregation, assemble
the elders, gather the children, and those

When Jews see the

in the clouds IN POWER AND GREAT GLORY, and
that His Church has been taken to heaven,
they will realize what has happened and what
is ABOUT TO HAPPEN and
will cry out to God, at that location, for

That's HOW LONG the distress or trouble
or tribulation WILL LAST. I SEE THAT NOW.
Here's where it gets REAL tricky:
When we read the Book of Revelation,
chapters 8-16, it GIVES THE IMPRESSION that
the tribulation may be somewhat longer
because of the trumpet judgments which
APPEAR TO PRECEDE the reign of Antichrist.
Trumpet #5 ALONE lasts 5 MONTHS
The judgments are described in chapters
8-12 and Antichrist
ISN'T EVEN MENTIONED until chapter 11, and
his reign until chapter 13.

is GOING BACK in time and filling in some
of the detail. One of the "details" he
gives, as he goes BACK IN TIME is the reign
of Antichrist in chapter 13.
My conclusion, then, is that Jesus
WASN'T talking in linear time.
Had that been the case, we
WOULDN'T BE HERE.
He is talking about the 3½ years, which
last a BIT LONGER THAN the 1,260 days yet
still are, generally speaking, 3½ years.
The events described in Revelation
BEGIN in numeric order. However they
OVERLAP with each other.
So, whereas BEFORE we were looking
at a model which, in linear time, looked

events happen CONCURRENTLY, which looks

However, I often
shake my head in disbelief at HOW MANY
EXCUSES many of our Jewish friends come up
with in their STUBBORN REFUSAL to believe
Jesus of Nazareth is their Messiah.
They got answers - or at least, CLAIM TO
have "answers" - for everything:
someone quotes Mark 13:1-2 which predicts
the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple
in 70 A.D., they claim that Gospel was
written 40 or 50 years later, AFTER the
temple was destroyed.
Or, if they concede its true date which
is around 40 A.D. (a mere 7 years after
Jesus rose and ascended) they'll say that
"Christians ADDED that portion to the text
later", in order to "make it appear" that
Jesus had made such prediction.
someone quotes Isaiah 53:1-7, they claim
that refers to Israel, not to the Messiah.
That's why I usually don't even bother
bringing up that passage, as most
Christians love to do, because they EXPECT
THAT, and -- UNLESS A PERSON REALLY KNOWS
their Bible -- they are READY for it.
Of course, they have a hard time
explaining HOW Israel "did not open his
mouth and remained silent" in verse 7.
Or verse 8 where "he" had NO

Everyone knows that Hezekiah's
kingdom ended in 686 B.C.
So unless they want to claim that
Hezekiah will return as the Messiah, they CAN'T

When we bring up Daniel 9:24-27 and
show them that Messiah

edict to "return and build" Jerusalem, and

I could even take it even a step
