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?

The Outer Darkness

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I’ve received several emails lately asking for clarification of the term “Outer Darkness.” It’s mentioned a total of 4 times in the New Testament, three by name and one by implication, and always by Jesus.

Will We Witness The Great White Throne Judgment?

Q. I’m very, very thankful for your site!  I’d like to ask you a question about the Great White Throne judgment.  My mom use to say that believers would not be at the judgment of the unbelievers, because it would be too painful for them to see people they knew, being thrown into the lake of fire.  I believe we will be there, because we will forever be with the Lord.  Would you tell me what you think about this?

Treasure In Heaven

Q. When we say we should store up treasure in heaven, what will that treasure be?  Are they the crowns we try to earn to present them to God later? In The New Jerusalem, pure gold and precious stones are everywhere. We won’t need personal treasure in heaven, will we?

What Can I Say To Him?

Q.  I know somebody who lost his 4 years old daughter due to cancer.  To the best of my knowledge he is not a Christian.  The daughter had numerous surgeries but her cancer was unstoppable. After her last surgery she died.  Of course her father was heartbroken he wanted to die. He tried to drink himself to death and is still struggling with alcoholism. He says he doesn’t want to do anything with God because God didn’t help though he begged Him for his daughter’s life.  I pray for this heartbroken father,  but if he ever opens up and asks questions what can a Christian like me say to him?
