What hermeneutical principle do you use to understand Scripture?
How do you determine whether something is symbolic or literal?
How do you know for certain what a symbol means?
How many prophecies have been fulfilled in a symbolic manner?
Do the events of Revelation take place in chronological order?
Do the events of the Olivet Discourse take place in chronological order?
How many raptures are described in the Bible?
Are the two raptures of the Olivet Discourse the same event?
Is one of them the Pre-Tribulation Rapture?
Where does the one group which is raptured (Leviy-Matt. 24.40,41; Lk. 17.34-37) go to (Rev. 19.17,18)?
Was the ascension of Yochanan-John (Rev. 4.1) literal or is it symbolic of the Rapture?
Did YAHSHUA say no man can know the day and hour of the Rapture or did He speak of His Second Advent (Leviy-Matt. 24.32)?
Can a person know the day and hour of the Rapture?
Can a person know the day and hour of the Second Advent?
Doesn't the Yavan (Greek) language say that no one in 33 A.D. could gaze into the distant future and pick out the day of the Second Advent?
Were the first four feasts fulfilled on the exact days of those feasts by the death, entombment and resurrection of YAHSHUA, and the indwelling of the HOLY SPIRIT (Pentecost)?
Will the last three feasts be fulfilled on the days of those feasts?
What three major prophetic events have yet to be fulfilled?
Does the time of peace and safety start prior to or after the beginning of the Day of the Lord (I Thes. 5.3)?
When does the Day of the Lord (I Thes. 5.2; 2 Thes. 2.1) officially start?
Does the start of the Day of the Lord take the wicked by surprise (I Thes. 5.3)?
What is the sudden destruction that comes upon the wicked as a thief in the night (I Thes. 5.3)?
Should believers of the Assembly Age be caught by surprise by the sudden destruction (I Thes. 5.4)?
Since we are here when that destruction falls (which takes place after the official start of the Day of the Lord and the official Tribulation) doesn't that mean we go into the Tribulation?
Since we enter the Tribulation when are we raptured out?
Is the "coming of the Lord" and "our gathering together to Him" the same event (2 Thes. 2.1)?
Is this event the Rapture?
Does the apostasy take place prior to the Rapture (2 Thes. 2.3)?
Is the beast revealed for who he is prior to the Rapture (2 Thes. 2.3)?
Will we be raptured out before the wrath of YAHWEH is poured out (I Thes. 5.9)?
When is the wrath of YAHWEH and the Lamb poured out (Rev. 6.16,17)?
Are the first five seals a time of the Lord's wrath or a time of the devil's and the beasts' wrath?
If all Assembly Age believers are raptured prior to the start of the Tribulation and the 144,000 are not commissioned until the breaking of the sixth seal (Rev. 7.1-8) who shares the Gospel with those who are saved (Rev. 6.9-11) between the first and sixth seals?
Could those who are martyed during the fifth seal (Rev. 6.9-11) be Assembly Age believers who go into the Tribulation?
Does the Bible teach that Assembly Age believers will see the start of the Tribulation (I Thes. 5.3,4)?
Do the Scriptures teach that Assembly Age believers will see the apostasy and the man of lawlessness (beast/antichrist) prior to the Rapture (2 Thes. 2.1-3)?
Should a believer take a position on the Rapture before he does an in-depth, exegetical study on the major last days passages (2 Yahshua-Is. 63.1-6; Yechezqel-Ez. 25.12-14; 35.1-36.5; 38.1-39.29; Zek. 14.1-15; Lk. 17.20-37; Olivet Discourse -- Leviy-Matt. 24,25; Mk. 13; Lk. 21; I Kor. 15.35-58; I Thes. 5.1-11; 2 Thes. 2.1-12; Rev. 6-19 and pieced the facts together like a jigsaw puzzle to get a complete understanding? Have you done this? Has your bishop (pastor) done this? Do you know of anyone who has done this?
