Q. Re: “Destroying All The Nations” According to the Scriptures you listed, I was wondering if the nations mentioned in Revelation 21:24 (“And the nations of them which are saved…”) and Revelation 22:1 might be newly-created ones, names and all. And, they would be “governed” by those in The Body of Christ that have been given charge over them during the Millennium. Or is that the heritage of Israel only?
Q. As I was reading Revelation I came across the phrase the “Lord’s day” in Revelation 1:10. I thought that when John says the “Lord’s day” in this particular verse he was referring to a day of the week, (Saturday? Sunday?). However, I read a commentary which said that John meant something else.
It said that “The Lord’s day” has nothing to do with a day of the week. Referring to Sunday as the Lord’s day only came into vogue many centuries later. No, the Lord’s day is the same as the “day of the Lord” and is one of the phrases used when talking of the Tribulation period or the time of the Last Days.
So which one is it? Is the “Lord’s day” a day of the week or does it mean that John was already in the future before he got to chapter 4 because I thought that John was only “transported” to the future in chapter 4.
Q. Recently a subject came up about the sex of angels in our bible study. They said according to Jesus after we get to heaven we would be like the angels neither marrying or being given in marriage. This led them to say that angels are “sexless”. However in Genesis we see the fallen angels comingling with humans with the Nephlim resulting. Any angel in scripture has a male name, so is there an answer?
Q. I have been seeing a lot of Rapture dreams and End Time dreams on Youtube and a vast majority of them keep saying Are you Ready for the Rapture? And one I watched just last night spoke about that just because we are Saved/Born Again does not necessarily guarantee we will be taken in the Rapture that we have to repent daily and live each day as if it is our last, etc. What are your views on this? I have been worrying and stressing a lot about this issue after hearing this. It has me questioning if I will be left behind.
Q. I am a Christian. The one area I struggle with is the six day creation account in Genesis. I have a hard time reconciling the world being created in six days with the loads of evidence for the 13 billion year old universe and 4.5 billion year old Earth. Also, the universe and our solar system was created through colliding planets and exploding stars. Dinosaurs roamed the earth and then became extinct. This hardly seems like a paradise before Adam sinned in the Garden. Was only the Garden a paradise? Perhaps there was still chaos outside of the garden and before the Garden was created?
Q. My question concerns Revelation 9, where the locusts ascend from the pit to torment those who do not have the Seal of God. I understand the 144,000 bond servants of God will have a seal, but what about other Christians on earth? Will they also have a seal to avoid this judgment of God, or does this chapter imply that there are no Christians on earth at this particular time due to martyrdom?
Q. Is it possible God made a wife for Cain much in the same way He did for Adam? That way incest isn’t in the equation, especially when God condemns incest later in scripture.
Q. Jeremiah 30:1-11 tells us that all the nations among which the Jews have been scattered will be destroyed. Can you expand on this? Does this mean there will be no more USA, Germany, France, Russia, Iran, etc.? I mean, the Jews were scattered all over the world in many nations. Does this mean they will all be no more and how does this happen?
Q. Does Vladimir Putin have the credentials to be the Gog of Magog?
Q. Some thoughts came into my mind yesterday. If millions of raptured believers live in New Jerusalem, is it possible for human friction, jealousy and politics to abound in New Jerusalem. I was thinking particularly about the Bema rewards that our Lord will give each one of us at His Judgment Seat after the rapture. Will believers become unhappy or jealous because they received less rewards than others? Will believers play politics (just like office politics and even church politics on earth) when they work for the Lord throughout eternity. I know it sounds silly because there will be no sin in God’s special enclave, but I can’t imagine that a billion people living in New Jerusalem (presumably an enclosed space) will not have friction or start playing politics.
