To Eternity And Beyond

Q.  I have a question concerning the events at the end of the millennium. As I understand it at the end of the millennium Satan is released from the pit and deceives many and they are destroyed by the Lord. What about the ones that do not rebel and are saved?

I have read one opinion that they are preserved (like Noah) while the Earth and Heavens are renovated by fire. Then they (still having their fleshly bodies) receive a new heart and then repopulate the Earth and Heavens in eternity?

To Eternity And Beyond

Q.  I have two questions, in Revelation 19:20 it says the beast and the false prophet were thrown alive into the lake of fire.  Did they receive resurrected bodies, or were they thrown in to the lake of fire in their earthly bodies?  If so what will happen to them? Also, at the end of the millennium what type of bodies will the believers in Christ have and what type of bodies will the non-believers have as they enter eternity?

Abraham And The New Jerusalem

Q.  I have a question about the inhabitants who will live in New Jerusalem during the millennium and beyond.  People say the church, Bride Of Christ, will be those who dwell there. I agree, but a question always tugs away at the back of my mind about the city Abraham was looking forward to as recorded in Hebrews 11:10. “For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God”.  There is only one city that I can recall in scripture whose builder and maker would be God, and that’s the New Jerusalem.  So, if  Church age believers are going to be the only occupants of New Jerusalem, what city is Hebrews 11:10 all about?

Psalm 146

Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul. I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

What Does Eternal Mean?

Q. What is the meaning of the original word when the Bible talks about eternal punishment/damnation? Does the original word really mean “eternal”? I heard many times about this “aeons after aeons”.  Can we really equate them with eternity?  What do you think about 1 Tim. 4:10 that “God is the Savior of all men, specially of them that believe” ?  If God will be all in all, can this include an eternal lake of fire filled with condemned beings?

OSAS And Rev. 3:5

Q. I firmly believe in once saved always saved, and the verses that once led me to doubt it, for the most part, have been explained to me. However there is one verse that I still can’t get my mind around, and that is Rev. 3:5. Now I know that we are not supposed to take one scripture and use it to disprove the many that say otherwise, yet since Rev 3 is talking to the churches, how do we explain that we have everlasting life if our names can be blotted out?

Still More On Marriage In Heaven

Q.   I know the bible says we will neither marry nor be given in marriage in heaven, yet as soon as we get there we are going to the marriage supper of the lamb. I look at the universe and I believe we are the first of Gods creation, the beginning.  I also believe that God will once again turn His creative power back to the universe and make the rest of the planets habitable for mankind. One of the greatest joys I have had in this life is my children. It does not seem right that only the Jews and Gentiles will be allowed to repopulate the Earth, yet the church will not be able to have any more children. What do you think?

Will We Always Be Physical Beings?

Q.  I understand that man is created in God’s image, meaning that man has an eternal spirit.  Wouldn’t that mean the angels were also created in God’s image?  What is the difference then between man and angels if, after temporarily inhabiting physical bodies, man then becomes a spirit being?  Or does man become a physical being again inhabiting a physical place?

Concerned About Eternity

Q.  Will we do creative things in eternity like art and building things or something we enjoyed from earth or will all of that cease to exist forever with us having no memory or desire of it? I can’t stand the notion of all things being absorbed or losing the ability to be creative. That is a crappy view of eternity and for that reason I don’t have hardly any belief at all. I believe creative endeavors and desires continue.

The Destiny Of Unbelievers

Q.  I had a conversation the other day with a young man on the subject of our life span.  I told him he would live forever as I would, but it would depend upon his acceptance or rejection of Christ as to where he would spend it. When he asked where I meant, I said either in Heaven or the Lake of Fire.  He informed me that he had been to four different churches since he had moved here and they all said  it would be separation from God.  He said he was separated from God now and it did not bother him.  And he is right.  All the preachers I have heard in the last several years have described separation from God as the destiny for non Christians.  Do you believe that unsaved ones will go to the Lake of Fire?
