Dear Arno Froese,

I read the article in Midnight Call (July 2014), by Ron J. Bigalke. I am a little surprised by his attack on Pastor John Hagee for his belief in the upcoming events of these Blood Moons! Does Dr. Bigalke know that besides the Blood Moons coming between 2014 and 2015, that there is also on or about 3/20/15, going to be an Adar 29 Nisan 1, eclipse of the sun? That should be extremely important.

Does not what the prophet Joel’s telling of the Lord’s coming after these events count for anything? Or does this magazine contradict every author’s writings? I do not believe that is how it should be, because no one knows when our great and wonderful Lord is coming back. If the beliefs of any author should get people to read their Bible or start believing in our awesome God, one’s opinions, so long as they are not hurting anyone, should not be condemned! There are a lot of books out there that should be taken off the market then, because no one’s writings are correct!

I am not an educated person; in fact, I did not go to a college to learn what I know about my Lord Jesus Christ. But I have attended Bible studies enough to know that everybody’s opinion counts. That is how we learn about upcoming events or the past ones. What about books written on the Antichrist? No one knows the when of that either; we have to trust the good Lord on all accounts.

Dear Sir,

I am curious if the book of Revelation is in the right chronological order. If not, do you know the true order? I would truly appreciate an answer to this.

Dear Director Froese,

Please refer to Norbert Lieth’s fine article entitled “Jesus Saves—He Lives—He Is Coming!” (June issue).

He states on page 27, about the middle of the page, and I quote, “The apostle Peter confirms three facts in the Acts of the Apostles which are indivisible from one another.”

From all I have read, it seems the majority of Bible scholars and teachers seem to agree that Luke probably wrote the book, The Acts of the Apostles.

Would you please ask Brother Lieth, where he found the information to support his belief that Peter was the author of the book?

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.

Dear Mr. Froese,

I was wondering if you have come across Gentiles (Christian) who are developing greater interest in the Old Testament and have begun Sabbath-keeping and Feast Days, and are looking to keep Torah Laws. (We have friends who are, and I thought it was just a local thing.) Then I learned that there is a group that keeps the Feasts in a rotation to different parts of the U.S., and has issued a Bible with Hebrew names and changed references to God and His many names to Elohim or Yahweh.

I know you have differences with Marv Rosenthal, but it seems the Lord has prompted him—out of all the Jewish Messianic and last days’ prophetic ministries—to begin addressing these movements. There seems to be a need for further expositions on Galatians for the Judaizers, and on Colossians and Hebrews for the superiority of Christ and the freedoms we have as believers (which, by the way, is much harder to live by). As in the Old Testament, the lines are there—just stay within them and keep the rules (Acts 15:19-20, 24, 28-29).

Dear Arno,

I read, enjoyed, and mostly agreed with MC for many years. But I have questions and concerns about the upcoming articles on “How Sure Is Salvation?” and the way it is being presented.

Are we not asking the wrong question? Is God not strong enough or not willing to keep a saved person faithful?

I have no doubt He is well able and more than willing. Rather, is not the question, are we willing to remain faithful? Willing to keep the faith; earnestly contend for the faith; continue to believe, to even be considered a believer; remain on the narrow way, which leads to life? As His sheep follow Him, and then the promise of eternal life? To not neglect our salvation when there is no escape (Hebrews 2:3), and this list would go on for a long time.

It did not work for Adam to blame God. The woman You gave me. Gave to me and I did eat. How well will it work for anyone on judgment day to blame God? The salvation you provided for me was not able to keep me from departing or falling away.

Some claim that once a person is born again, he can’t be unborn. Sounds physically correct. Bad comparison. Neither can a person be born again physically. Since when must a person be unborn to die?

Some also claim a saved person’s conduct cannot affect his salvation. Is this not a dangerous doctrine of devils, giving them a license to sin?

Brother Arno,

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, King of all kings and Lord of all lords, who we know and believe is soon coming in the Rapture for His people.

I am not a preacher, nor an evangelist, but a servant of the Lord, as John the Baptist was, preaching the coming of the Lord. My question to you from your knowledge of the Bible is, can you explain Acts chapter 2? As a Christian, why do we need an interpreter to understand the Word of God, when here they all heard and understood in their own language what was being said by Peter? Does not the Bible teach that God does not change? He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

I know for a fact that a friend of mine spoke in an “unknown language” to Him, while preaching on a street corner, and two young Indian girls came to him and asked, “How do you know our language? You were praising God and telling us that we should stop running from God and commit our lives to Him. How did you know? How did you know what we were planning on doing? We came to town to do this one thing that you mention in your words.”

I may be strange to some people, but I do not deny the power of God to do whatever He wants, whenever He wants, by whatever means He desires.

Thank you for taking time to read this letter. I enjoy reading your Midnight Call and hope to learn more from it.

Dear MC,

Hopefully, you can satisfy my question concerning Columbus’s voyage in 1492.

I’ve just learned that they were Jews that had been expelled from Spain, looking for a new place to live. Is this true? What happened to them? Where did they land? How did they live?

History books say Columbus was looking for spices; three boatloads? Come on, get real. I never gave it much thought, being taught of the Pilgrims coming to America for freedom of religion in 1612.

The longer I live, the more lies I’ve found out. Now, this new regime of historians lying about our forefathers, and what their morals and ethics were.

This is all the evil one’s doing; he is the father of lies.

God bless you for helping me and others get to the truth.

Dear Midnight Call:

I noticed what I believe to be an error in G. Wasserzug’s booklet: “What Does the Bible Say about Marriage?” She mentions that Paul was unmarried…yet, all members of the Sanhedrin had to be married, a group of which Paul was a member.

-J. Skinner, CT
Dear Midnight Call,

In the March 2014 issue of the Midnight Call, there is an article written by Ulrich Weiss titled “Continental Drift from a Biblical Point of View.” In this article, Mr. Weiss’s explanation of Pangaea and Continental Drift is in error and should not be referred to as a Biblical point of view. This theory is taught in schools and universities by evolutionists around the world.

Today’s modern technology, with sonar and satellite imagery of the ocean floors, has debunked the old “drift” theory. Indeed, Walt Brown was a teaching professor of the “drift theory,” when he became a Christian in the 1970s. At that time, it became apparent to him that the theory was not only seriously flawed, but more importantly, it was inconsistent with Scriptural truth. In 1980, after a decade of research, Brown published the first edition of In the Beginning, espousing his Hydroplate theory with no “drift” involved. Modern technology has since proven him to be correct, and his is the theory on which Creation scientists stand today.

What does Mr. Weiss mean by his repeated mentions of a “second earth”? And then, “the new creation of the third earth…”? How many Creations is he advocating? My Bible teaches a single Creation in which “…the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done…” (Genesis 2:1-2). The Prophets, Matthew 24, and Revelation all speak of catastrophic events during the 7 year tribulation, but this is not the creation of the new heavens and earth. (Neither is it proof of a second continental drift, since there was never a first one.) That new Creation will take place after the close of Christ’s millennial reign, as stated in Revelation 20:11: “Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heavens fled away. And there was found no place for them.”

If I may, I would recommend that Mr. Weiss examine the evidence that I have mentioned before advocating for the evolutionary theory of Continental Drift and multiple creations.

Dear Arno,

I have heard that there is a “blood moon tetrad” coming up very soon—the first one in April followed by another one later on this year, and then a total eclipse of the sun followed by two more blood moons in 2015. They are predicted to happen on the Jewish holy days.

I have not as yet heard anyone else speak on these things. I did look them up on the NASA website. Could you give any information about this?

-M. Boulton, CA
Dear Mr. Froese:

I enjoy your magazine and your teachings. I have read your articles in Tim LaHaye’s Prophecy Study Bible on “The Literal Babylon” and “The Figurative Babylon.” I would like your view on my question concerning the Babylon that is fallen in Revelation Chapters 18 & 14. Based upon the following Scriptures, it appears to me this is the City of Jerusalem.

Revelation 14:8 states it is a “great city” (not a nation), as some have written books stating America is the “Final Babylon.” “And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city….” Revelation 11:8 states, “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” (We know this identifies Jerusalem.)

Revelation 18:2 states, “is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit…”

Revelation 18:24 states, “And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.”

Revelation 18:20 states, “Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.”

Matthew 23:35: Jesus said, “That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom you slew between the temple and the altar.”

Matthew 23:37 and Luke 13:34: Jesus identified this city by stating, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee.”

Matthew 23:31: Jesus stated, “Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.”

Acts 7:52 states, “Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? And they have slain them…”

Jeremiah 51:49 states, “As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth.”

From other Scriptures I understand and believe that the Church will be raptured, then the Antichrist will be revealed. Something happens (we could speculate on what that “something” is) that causes 10 nations to form (referred to in Revelation 17:12-13). These 10 nations make up the 7th Kingdom that only lasts a short time (first 3 ½ years of tribulation); then the antichrist will set up the 8th Kingdom in the mid-point to begin the Great Tribulation.

At this time, the Antichrist has now stopped the daily sacrifices which began after the Jews rebuilt their temple. He has declared himself as God, and this is when the Jews that are living in the West Bank are to flee to Jordan. Daniel 11:31 states, “…and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.”

I understand the fall of Babylon to occur at the very end of the Great Tribulation. This Babylon is a literal city, and “Mystery Babylon” is the apostate religion (the false religion that sets up once the true Church is raptured). This religion only lasts 3 ½ years (the first part of the tribulation), because at the beginning of the Great Tribulation, the Antichrist destroys it and ONLY allows the worship of himself.

In summary, I believe from Scripture that Satan will try to duplicate God; so that is why he will take control of the Holy Land, the Holy City and the Holy Temple Mount, because he knows that is exactly what Christ will do. The Holy City Jerusalem is where Christ will rule His Kingdom from during the Millennium. That is why Antichrist will set up his headquarters there and enter the temple. That temple will be destroyed and another built which is described in Ezekiel Chapters 40—48. In addition to this new Temple being rebuilt, Christ will also restore the land from all the destruction that has come upon it during the Great Tribulation.

Gentlemen,

I need your prayers. I was just released from the hospital after hip replacement surgery. My children are being overprotective; even though they are loving and caring Christian children, they do not understand my ministry.

I write letters of encouragement to the sick, the lost, and the men and women in the military who don’t have anyone to write to them.

My daughter thinks I spend too much money on stamps, and I have no income. They have taken control of my money, my checks, and my mail so I won’t waste my money.

I love my children, but I cannot leave the house or drive at the present time. I love to read and write my letters. I receive notice from people all the time about how much I’ve encouraged them and brought them hope.

I try to be frugal and buy books and stationary, cards and envelopes on sale so I won’t waste money. In today’s computer age, people are starving for a word of encouragement written especially for them, but my children do not see this value in the written letter.

This is why I need your prayers. I need a way to earn money, but all I can do is write. I’ve written a couple of magazine articles, but nothing like selling a book. Please pray that I can find a way to earn some money so I can buy my stamps and stationary. I love your magazine and would love to purchase some of your “on sale books” when I can.

Our nation is in a seriously troubled state. We need revival in a big way.
