Archives: Question of the Week

Dear Dr. Jack and Rexella, please answer this minister’s article. He has a weekly column.

Roy Holbert

RVI: Actually there are two men who write this column, Understanding What We Read, Harvey Davis and Steve Ryan.

In this article they say the devil didn’t make me do it. You’ve heard that before—the devil made me do it—they say no way. And they actually refer to Proverbs 6:16-18 and name some things.

I'm going to go back and forth with Jack and see, if the devil made me do it.

JVI: They say that there is no Satan to do it. It's our own minds. Let's hear what this Book says–not what two ministers who don't know what the Book teaches say.

RVI: First thing, a proud look.

JVI: I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven, Luke 10:18. Why? Pride, I Timothy 3:6.

RVI: A lying tongue.

JVI: He's a liar and the father of liars, John 8:44.

RVI: Hands that shed innocent blood.

JVI: He was a murderer from the beginning, John 8:44, and that's because Cain killed Abel.

RVI: A heart that devises wicked imaginations.JVI: Peter said in Acts 5:3, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit?

RVI: Feet swift in running to mischief?

JVI: I Chronicles 21:1, Satan stood against Israel. That's why the Jews have always been hated, because of this old devil.

RVI: A false witness that speaks lies.

JVI: Satan incarnates the world dictator in Revelation 13:3, and because of it, 2 Thessalonians 2:9 says he speaks lying wonders.

RVI: The last one, he that sows discord among brethren.

JVI: Paul said in I Thessalonians 2:18, Satan. You get it? Satan hindered us. That had to do as well with the break-up of Paul and Barnabas, the greatest missionary team in history in Acts chapter 15, verse 39.

One guy says there is no devil. The other says Satan will be in heaven. What a mixed up mess today some of these men present because they don't know the book.

What will signal the beginning of the Tribulation hour, bombs?

Mrs. Gigliotte

RVI: : Let's take a look at headlines. It will update us on the road map to peace. First of all, from the International Herald Tribune “The truth behind the peace process”, and “Bush's Middle East chance?” Then this article by Herb Keinon “The Christian right is watching Bush on Israel. Then from an article by Yossi Beilin: “All road maps lead to Washington.” And by Gideon Samet: “Time to tighten the road map.” Then from Israel National News “Anti-road map demonstrations continue in the United States.” And from Ben Lynfield in the Christian Science Monitor “Suicide bombings jolt Middle East peace. Then Meg Borton reports: “Muslims lament Israel's existence.” And this from ABC News/Reuters “Palestinian militants threaten new attacks.” And this from Israel National News “Palestinian terrorists preparing for war during temporary cease fire in Israel.” And from “Thousands being recruited for Jihad.” And these two headlines from The Middle East Newsline “Hezbollah continues to shove Israeli towns from Lebanon” and “Hamas expected to deploy Kassam missiles to West Bank of Israel.” And these two from The Jerusalem Post “Israel prepared for mega terrorist attack” and “And Arafat calls upon children to become martyrs.” And finally from “Jerusalem touted as world's capital.” There is a very sticky point. Jerusalem, they've always been very protective of that city.

JVI: One man said concerning this road map to peace in the Middle East, we are rapidly descending into hell. He means it's going to be all out war in the future. What does the Bible teach concerning bombs?

Yes, there will be bomb, but that's why a leader arises out of the European Union, Revelation 13:1, and Daniel 9:26, and makes and confirms a peace contract for seven years in Daniel 9:27, and the whole world is happy.

But there is a problem. Why? Because Zechariah chapter 12, verses 2 and 3 says, Jerusalem shall be a cup of trembling and a burdensome stone. This will be the sticky point. That's what's going on right now. Finally they negotiate and they give in and the land is parted and Jerusalem is divided and God is angry because Jerusalem is His city. It's the city of the Great King, Matthew 5:35. Because they've done this, Joel 3:2, indicates that all out war will begin. All nations shall come against Jerusalem, Zechariah 14:2. And they take it from the Jews.

That's interesting because for 2553 years, the Jews didn't control Jerusalem, but since the Six-Day War, June 5 through 10, 1967, they do. So this is the hour in history and they take it from the Jews. Well, the Lord Jesus at that time returns, sets His foot upon the Mount of Olives in the front of Jerusalem, Zechariah 14:4, sets up His kingdom in Jerusalem, Luke 1:32 and 33, and from then on, it is the city of the Great King, Matthew 5:35, because the Redeemer has come to Jerusalem.

There it is, ladies and gentlemen. But what starts this whole thing? Bombs? No. A leader rising and confirming the peace. We call it the Antichrist and that is 2 Thessalonians 2:8.

Question of the week is here and it’s from Newsweek directed to Sir Martin Rees who is the British Astronomer Royale.

This is what they asked him: The title of your new book, “Our Final Hour”, will certainly grab attention, but you’re not really predicting the end of civilization in the next one hundred years are you?

RVI: Well this was his answer—No, I genuinely believe that the risk of a severe set back to civilization is probably about 50 percent. We will not be wiped out, but there is a severe risk and I would make that sort of assessment even if we just considered the nuclear threat.

My that is something to think about. Lets look at when he is talking about here: First of all, from “Saudis Looking to Go Nuclear” and from USA Today Bush: “Nuclear Weapons Won't be Tolerated.” Then from BBC News “Black Clouds of Nuclear War Gathering” and once more from USA Today Bush Pushes for New Nukes.” Jack, tie this together and explain it.

JVI: 24 nations have nukes and they are going to be used , Psalm 97:3, Isaiah 66:15 and Ezekiel 20:47.

Russia makes that first invasion and a fire devours before them, Joel 2:3, and the prophet sees as Russia is pushed back, blood, fire, pillars of smoke and nuclear effects Joel 2:30. Then the second wave occurs as China moves into the Middle East and the kings of the orient, Revelation 16:12 and there is nuclear fire for Revelation 9:18 says, by these three were the third part of the men killed by the fire, smoke and brim stone.

No doubt about it.
