    1. 03:00 Could you explain “and their enemies beheld them” in Revelation 11:12?
    2. 04:45 Could you look at 1 Corinthians 16:9-12?
    3. 07:43 According to Habakkuk 2:3, I am getting worried that October 21 might not happen.
    4. 12:02 Please compare Acts 2:34-35 with Matthew 22:42-45 and Hebrews 1:13. In comparing these verses, who are the angels in Hebrews 1:13?
    5. 15:10 Could you look at Ezekiel 12:18-19? Could this be compared to Philippians 2:12-13 and could Ezekiel 12 have something to do with the five months?
    6. 17:27 Could you compare Matthew 5:14-15,18 with Proverbs 3:27? Even though we are in the 153 days, since we are the “light of the world,” this is puzzling me. I have had some discussions with someone and he is still thinking that salvation is available because we are not supposed to be a candle that is hid; but then Isaiah 26 comes into view and says that we are to be hid for a moment. Could you please explain?
    7. 22:43 Would the ferry boat crossing in 2 Samuel 19:18 be a spiritual picture of the elect crossing on dry land?
    8. 24:12 Comment from Chris concerning the parable of Luke 11:5-8 in relation to continuing in prayer after the door is shut.
    9. 34:40 Could you compare Daniel 7:11-12 and Revelation 19:20-21 in relation to Satan at this time?

  • Question Summary with Starting Times in Audio File

    1. 02:13 Could you look at Ezekiel 14:20-21 and explain why God uses Noah, Daniel, and Job, and could you also look at the “four sore judgments”?
    2. 10:17 Does the Bible say anything about what might be happening during the eight-day period of the Feast of Tabernacles?
    3. 15:47 Could you read Genesis 28:12? Is this what happened on May 21st? Is this a picture of the rapture?
    4. 19:35 Can you please explain 2 Chronicles 18:16? I was and am confused with what 2 Chronicles 18:16 says and with what Matthew 24:16-17 says. Notice the words “mountains” and “house.”
    5. 22:00 Please explain Job 33:15-17 and Job 33:29-30.
    6. 24:18 Aaron and Moses were brothers. Each one of them named one of their sons Eleazar/Eliezer. If you look at those words in the Hebrew, they are the same identical letters, but they are spelled differently in the English. You will notice in a concordance or in an Interlinear Bible, one of them has vowel points on one of the letters. Originally, there were no vowel points. Who would have only put vowel points on one of them? Would there be any difference in those words?
    7. 25:50 What does “sea of glass” in Revelation 15:2 mean? Is this referring to the true believers with Jesus?
    8. 32:42 I have a question about Ezekiel 29. This is one of a series of chapters where Egypt is being spoken against. As I understand this, this is usually referring to the church under judgment in those times. But in Ezekiel 29, especially in verses 11 and 13, God is saying that He is going to bring them back from their captivity after 40 years. They are only going to be a base nation and not very powerful after that. Can you tell me what this is referring to?
    9. 34:22 In Revelation 22:8-11 and Revelation 19:9-10, this illustration seems to be Christ Himself and yet He says to John not to bow down and worship. Can you explain these verses? What is the reason for God telling John this?
    10. 38:52 I heard Mr. Camping’s recent message. In Mr. Carman’s message tonight, he agreed with Mr. Camping on the word “quietly.” I am trying to understand how the rapture, how the raising of the dead in Christ, and how all of this is supposed to happen quietly. Is this suggesting that we are not even going to know what will be going on? Will the unsaved not even have time to understand what will be happening on October 21st?
    11. 43:33 Today, Mr. Camping referred to God’s vengeance. He also said that God would be merciful on the last day, October 21. How is 2 Thessalonians 1:8 in agreement with a quiet day?
    12. 48:15 Please explain Numbers 35:15-19.
    13. 52:34 Mr. Carman mentioned that in Scripture sometimes the spiritual is intertwined with the literal. When the Bible speaks of the heavens on fire and of fervent heat, I picture a natural celestial event causing this. Also, it reads that some of this will take place before we are raptured and then we are to hold our heads high. I was wondering what part we will be in before the rapture.
    14. 59:45 Could you look at 1 Corinthians 15:52? Will there be an immediate annihilation for the unsaved on October 21? This reminds me of the way that God took Enoch. When the elect get their resurrected bodies, will this be a simultaneous action on that day?
    15. 62:03 Did Satan lose all authority on May 21 or just his official rulership over the churches and the world? Did he lose his rulership over mankind?
    16. 71:54 Could you go over Psalm 11:6 and explain our understanding now after May 21 of this word “snares”?
    17. 76:41 Did the thief on the cross have a chance to show or manifest that he was a saved person? Will there be individuals today who have the same situation such as this case of the thief?

    1. 01:50 I was wondering if you could go over Isaiah 66:17-18?
    2. 03:17 In Matthew 7:22, it talks about “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord.” Then Christ says in Matthew 7:23, “Depart from me.” When will this actually take place? We thought that this would take place on May 21st, but things did not turn out this way.
    3. 14:48 Could you go over Luke 21:25-28 again?
    4. 24:04 Can you explain the two witnesses being slain in Revelation 11? More people are teaching that the two witnesses were killed on May 21, 1988 and May 21, 2011.
    5. 27:46 In what the believers are telling people now, are we cutting them to the heart and are they gnashing upon us with their teeth at this point in time since there is no hope now for anyone who remained in the church?

Questions and Answers for 2011-09-16

  • Audio: Length: 33:04 Size: 5.7 MB
  • Question Summary with Starting Times in Audio File

    1. 00:00 Question is in relation to verses in Esther and their possible relation to May 21.
    2. 01:32 I wanted to have you look at Genesis 6:16 to help you with your study tonight. I know that this is obvious. I just want to make sure that people know that God did say that there was a door on the ark.
    3. 02:28 Could you look at Revelation 6:9-11? This is referring to May 21, 2011.
    4. 04:45 (Continued from Question #3) Revelation 11:7 is referring to 1988, and that identifies with those who are under the altar who get the white robes.
    5. 06:30 (Continued from Question #3) The killing is not the physical killing. We were killed in the eyes of the unsaved who did not believe our testimony. Our testimony is killed.
    6. 07:40 There are verses in the Bible that talk about the shepherd being silenced. I thought that this could be talking about our day in relation to Mr. Camping. For over 50 years, he has been like a shepherd to so many of us with all of the new information that God wanted us to know. Do you see any Biblical relation to those verses and to what has happened to Mr. Camping and Family Radio in these last days?
    7. 14:40 I know that the spiritual earthquake of May 21 was a snare to the entire world. Do you think that Jehovah will test the believers again?
    8. 20:52 Can you please check Isaiah 19:1-6? Could verses 4-6 be referring to what happened to the churches and congregations on May 21, 1988? Can you please also compare verses 1-4 with Ezekiel 29:19? Could the “cruel lord” and “fierce king” be referring to King Nebuchadnezzar who was a picture of Satan?
    9. 22:05 Do you have any new understanding of the 1,335 days in Daniel 12:12 referring to the end times versus Christ ministering from 29-33 A.D.?
    10. 22:45 During your study, you were mentioning the fact that the elect or the body of Christ bring judgment or fire and brimstone on the world. Us being the body and Christ being the head, He directs all of our actions or lack of actions. Is this what you were referring to? We do not really do anything.
    11. 24:45 In Isaiah 20 we read about Isaiah being commanded by God to “loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot,” did this happen literally? Why did God want him to walk naked and bear that embarrassment? Did he really walk naked or was this just spiritual?
    12. 29:10 In Revelation 9, are the 200 million a spiritual figure of God’s elect? How can we be sure that this is literal?

    1. 15:09 What really happened to Satan and his devils after May 21?
    2. 18:48 Do you know what Exodus 23:19 means where it says, “Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk”?
    3. 19:30 Where is Satan now?
    4. 24:58 Could you look at Psalm 102:18-20? I just wanted to point these verses out. In verse 18, the word “to come” is the word “latter,” as in the latter generation. Verse 20 is interesting because it is talking about loosing the prisoners. Could you comment on this?
    5. 27:14 Could you comment on Isaiah 29:17-18? This speaks of “in that day.” Does this relate to May 21?
    6. 28:55 In the parable of the rich man and Lazarus, could Lazarus have been a picture of Christ Himself?
    7. 33:07 Could you look at John 1:18 in relation to the parable in Luke 16?

  • Audio: Length: 1:07:58 Size: 11.7 MB
  • Question Summary with Starting Times in Audio File

    1. 04:58 Could you compare Revelation 19:8 with Luke 16:19? Does the rich man represent the church? Did he have the righteousness of the saints?
    2. 07:34 Could you also look at Revelation 18:16? This is related to the other two verses.
    3. 08:04 Could you go over the five wise and the five foolish virgins and relate this to our time now?
    4. 18:35 Does the parable of the wheat and tares relate now more clearly to what is happening in Revelation 9? The tares have been separated from the wheat and are prepared for the burning. Does this have to do with the fact that they are in torment now?
    5. 24:08 When God resurrects the bodies out of the graves of His elect who have previously died but who are spiritually with the Lord, will He resurrect them on October 21st as new glorified bodies?
    6. 26:45 In other words, He is not raising the old body?
    7. 27:48 In Revelation 11:13, who is the remnant and how are they giving glory to God?
    8. 31:15 In relation to Revelation 8, does the wormwood and the three woes have something to do with God’s wrath coming upon these people?
    9. 33:33 This leads into my next question. When water gets polluted from a flood, like we have recently seen in the news, this is called polluted water, right?
    10. 34:22 When God is speaking of the three woes, is this in relation to God bringing judgment?
    11. 35:20 Could you look at Luke 12:47-48 in relation to how these two groups of people receive different levels of stripes, especially since they both could be killed in a great earthquake on the same day?
    12. 40:30 In relation to 2 Peter 3:10-11, the word “elements” means “bound,” and “melt” and “dissolve” have to do with loosing. Does this point to May 21st?
    13. 43:47 Is Acts 1:18 referring to Christ? What is the spiritual meaning of this passage?
    14. 45:45 What is the significance of the repetition of what we read in John 21:15-18 where Jesus asked Simon Peter three times in a row if he loved Him and then told him three times to feed His sheep?
    15. 57:05 Chris, you are a teacher and teachers are few and far between who have a platform to feed sheep. But for the elect, for someone like myself, how do we feed sheep, these 200 million?
    16. 59:10 In 1 Corinthians 10:7, what does “rose up to play” mean spiritually?
    17. 60:15 I just wanted to share that verse that we talked about earlier. If we look at Genesis 31:42 and 53, we get a definition of this word “fear.”
    18. 62:30 I have heard you say that if someone was in a church previous to May 21, they have no hope. Could it be more accurate to say that this is the case if someone’s authority was in the church instead of someone physically being in the church?
    19. 63:48 Does God give any indication of what the spirits in Heaven are like? In 2 Chronicles 18, Micaiah was speaking about Ahab going to Ramothgilead. On one side they were saying something, and then on the other side they were saying something; and Christ was asking how He could persuade Ahab to be killed in battle. It was then that a spirit entered into him. Is this just a specific case or is this just how this world is playing out, as if God is making certain big movements and then asking how these things are going to be accomplished, even though He planned it beforehand?

  • Question Summary with Starting Times in Audio File

    1. 00:12 Is the earthquake in Revelation 16 spiritual or are we still expecting an earthquake in October?
    2. 02:32 In relation to the 200 million, is this number only from the great tribulation until today? Are we saying that there are more than 200 million or that there are just these 200 million?
    3. 06:07 Could you look at Revelation 15:7-8? In relation to the “seven angels” who are pouring out the vials in Revelation 16, is it possible that we could not yet go to Heaven because we are the ones pouring out these vials for God if we are these messengers? This means that we could not leave yet, because we are the ones who are to be doing the tormenting.
    4. 13:24 Could you look at Revelation 16:12-14?
    5. 21:34 It is amazing to realize these things that are happening. We cannot see this, but there are these tremendous things happening. So it looks like there are two-thirds that have been annihilated or vanquished. It looks like the one-third is being gathered to the great day. I know that this is very difficult spiritual language.
    6. 22:24 The beast and the false prophet, which were cast into the “lake of fire,” has this happened yet? Where is Satan right now? What is happening with the devil?
    7. 28:34 Could you explain Hosea 1?
    8. 30:00 I am still a little puzzled about the five months. You touched all around this today in regards to the scorpions and the fire and brimstone. Their “power is in their mouth.” You just talked about “the dragon” and how all of the fish were thrown on the land. Could this be during the five months? I know that a lot of stuff happened before the five months, but these five months are very, very important. The scorpions come out and they do not kill anybody; they just torment them. The torment would not be before May 21st. There is supposed to be torment going on and it is from the mouth. Is the Lord going to let them see something that we have said?
    9. 32:37 (continued from Question 8) What I found is that nothing in Revelation points out the sorrow. It points out pain and suffering, and I went over all of the verses. Nothing in these five months is like the sorrow that we thought of or like Mr. Camping was pointing out.
    10. 33:28 (continued from Question 9) As I saw it when I went over it all in Strong’s, I was surprised that it coming up with the same exact number. But how do the many lashes come in, as well as the fewer lashes? This cannot be before May 21st, and yet this stuff is supposed to be coming out of their mouths.
    11. 36:50 Is it possible that young Christians might realize in the middle of this that righteousness has come to their lives?
    12. 37:45 Could you explain Daniel 7:11-12?

    1. 00:05 If the 200 million are currently judging not only the unsaved of the earth but also the angels, those verses that talk about the “men of Nineveh rising in judgment with this generation,” is that going on right now or can you explain that?
    2. 00:59 What exactly is the torment talked about in Revelation 9? Judgment on Satan.
    3. 02:45 We've talked about the possibility that someone could have been saved before May 21st, are there any examples in the Bible that show this?
    4. 03:30 Are the goats those who thought they were Christians?
    5. 04:53 Sharing about the nature of the earthquake with a Family Radio listener; In regards to the 200 million, we had thought they included the dead saints so now it’ is different that the resurrection has not happened?
    6. 07:26 In regards to the Friday Night Study, it was pointed out that the Bible stands out in human history.
    7. 08:19 The Bible speaks of the number 666 which is two-thirds. Could this equate to one third of the unsaved in the churches and the other third of the unsaved of the world?
    8. 09:16 How should one be in regards to Bible study these days and how does this relate to 2 Timothy 2:15 in “&...rightly dividing the Word of true?”
    9. 13:42 Comments on the Bible as a comfort for chastisement and guidance.
    10. 15:59 Regarding Jude 22-25, how does that tie in with the end times?

  • Question Summary with Starting Times in Audio File

    1. 00:00 Does Jesus’ statement in John 7:37 mean that there is salvation all throughout the 5-month period and even up to October 21st, and maybe, especially, October 21, “the last day, that great day of the feast”?
    2. 05:56 How are believers to be living now? Are there any verses that you can give us that might show us how we ought to be living until October 21?
    3. 07:41 Could you look at Acts 16:27? When you were previously talking about Acts 16, were you saying that this prison keeper might have been one of the people who was loosed, because we go on to read that he was also saved?
    4. 11:05 Will October 21 have to do with a physical earthquake, as far as God bringing destruction?
    5. 11:56 Could you look at Luke 12:35-37?
    6. 13:21 In relation to Luke 12:36 that you just read, could there have been a spiritual wedding on May 21st, because Jesus is coming back from a wedding?
    7. 13:48 In Luke 12:37, is this relating to Jesus serving His elect on October 21st?
