Q. I am really struggling with the idea you have taught that New Jerusalem will not be on the earth. Here’s an alternative. If New Jerusalem is in a “Spiritual state” and not a solid building type of thing, I believe it could exist right here on earth and not be seen by earth dwellers (and they would not be allowed in it at any rate). I agree with your idea that the thing would be too large to be on Earth if it was a solid block 1400 miles square and tall. I really believe that we as “Spirit People” will be in “Another Dimension” not presently enjoyed by humans except those like The Apostle John who saw all of the tribulation events and the New Jerusalem “In the Spirit”. Have I gone off the deep end?
Q. In Matthew 21 :43 it seems that the kingdom will be taken from those outlined in v45. Do you think this refers to all Israel? Further, who are the people to whom it will be given, and when will this happen?
Q. Is it safe to say the reformed theology you mentioned, gave birth to the “Kingdom now” theology we hear so much of in these days?
Q. I’m a believer in our covenant keeping God, and take seriously His promises to Abraham and David etc. I’ve always been of the view that God is yet to fully establish the Messianic Kingdom that He has promised, and eagerly await the return of Messiah, when He will reign as King on the throne of David, here on earth, as per the covenants and the prophecies. However, Joshua 21:43-45 seems to suggest that the land promises were fulfilled. I know other places in scripture suggest otherwise, but I would appreciate your thoughts on this passage that others often cite against my views.
Q. I remember once reading a book about Bible prophecy wherein the author said that sinners during the millennium will receive immediate punishment when they sin. Is this Scriptural?
Q. I believe my understanding is correct that during the Millennium, believers can lose their salvation and will be required to conduct animal sacrifices. But once the Millennium is over and Satan is forever shut away to no longer influence believers, will it still be possible for those living on Earth to lose their salvation? Will they be required to continue animal sacrifices in eternity?
Q. I was listening to your teachings on the Millennium and you mentioned the judgment of the Sheep and Goats. Right after that you said that ONLY Christians will be entering the Millennium. What about the individuals who did not receive the mark, were able to survive the Tribulation, and somehow never became believers?
Q. Am I correct in thinking that the New Jerusalem is not actually heaven? Will the New Jerusalem be our home for eternity or does anyone know for sure? The Bible does not give any hints , as far as I know, as to what will happen after the Millennium, so are we to assume that it will be our eternal home?
Q. What happens to the living unsaved after the GWT judgment?
Q. You responded to a reader that Tribulation people who died from other causes than martyrdom and went to heaven would be asked to “wait a little longer” for deaths to be avenged. I thought, “if there is no time, what does waiting a little longer feel like?” In fact, both my parents are now with God and do they have any concept of time on earth? I thought once we arrived in the New Jerusalem, time was no longer apparent and the time between being saved and dying (my Dad died in 1995) and our arrival, say 40 or 50 years later, would be non existent. How does one understand this?
