Q. I am a born again Christian and have been for many years. I love the Lord and I know he is the only answer. However, I know how God loves a humble heart and can’t stand people who are high on themselves. By us worshiping God forever and all the time, is God saying he wants us to be humble but yet he covets all the worship all the time? I know no one else deserves worship, but does God have any humbleness about him? Will we get to do other things in heaven and not just worship him all the time? I know this question might sound bad of me, but i was just hoping that God wasn’t someone who wanted to be exalted all the time.
Q. My question has to do with Christ being the light and we will have no need for the sun to light our way in the New Jerusalem. I always thought that the Bible says that we will always have the seasons and night and day. Does this pertain only to the earth and not to The New Jerusalem and mean that we will not sleep like we do during our night now?
Q. In Zechariah 14:16-18 it says, “Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, they will have no rain. If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain.”
I have thought that all unbelievers would be removed and held for judgment after the Tribulation when Jesus comes the second time, but this seems to be saying different. Will there still be unbelievers who have fought against Jerusalem on this earth during the Millennial reign?
Q. The Bible says that in the Millennium the old things will not be remembered. What, exactly, constitutes the ‘old things.? I’d like to see, up close and personal, the great events of history; the life of Jesus, the Flood, the Creation, etc. Will all of that be forgotten? And yes, there are some earthly things that I really enjoy, sports, trains, Mexican food, etc. Will those things be forgotten as well? What about relationships? Will we have best friends, lovers, romance, dancing, etc? David said in Psalms that he desires nothing except God. Really? So, does that mean we’ll remember nothing of our life here and know only God?
Q. Ezekiel 48:21 mentions the property belonging to the “prince”, who is the prince?
Q. I was just reading in John 12:34 where the Jewish people told Christ that they knew from the Law that the Christ would remain forever. I was just wondering what passages gave them that interpretation? Thank you so much for your ministry!
Q. I was taught growing up what I now know to be Amillenialism, and of course we were never taught any of the prophetic books and the Book of Revelation, etc. Lately, I have been on what seems to be the most adventurous path I have ever taken in life, in discovering the nature of prophecy and the end times from (several leading evangelical scholars). As you can imagine this really opened my eyes to a whole new world of things. I was really excited about it until I received information from a member of (my denomination) that challenged these beliefs. Now I honestly do not know what to believe and I feel like just giving up on trying to understand these sections of scripture. Can you help?
Q. I enjoyed your article – “Thy Kingdom Come”. My question is regarding Rev 22 and Ezekiel 47. The river is flowing from the throne in Rev 22 and from the temple or the house in Ezekiel 47. If there is no temple in the New Jerusalem (because God is) but the river flows out of the midst of it – does that mean the river in Rev 22 is not in the New Jerusalem? Will there be a temple in the Jerusalem on earth that the river flows from? I was thinking that the River of Life was in the heavenly city? Maybe I was wrong on that. Could you help clarify that for me?
Q. When we are in heaven, will we see the God head in physical form?

He will be succeeded by a contemptible person who has not been given the honor of royalty. He will invade the kingdom when its people feel secure, and he will seize it through intrigue. (Daniel 11:21)
