Q. When believers are in heaven or in the 1000 year reign of Christ will we still have free will?
Q. I am so grateful for your teaching, I am on this site reading every day. My question is, how can I best explain to someone, what is the Kingdom of God?
Q. I have recently discovered your web site and thank you for it. Your answers to readers questions are most helpful. Is there somewhere where we can see a list in chronological order for things to come according to God’s plan?
Q. When it comes to the future Temple (Ezekiel’s Temple), and the location where it will reside, I agree with all that you have put forth in your material (the coming temple). However, I was reading Zechariah 14:17, which says, “And it will be that whichever of the families of the earth does not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, there will be no rain on them.” Now, doesn’t the act of worship require the Temple? Or, can one worship in the Millennium in Jerusalem while the actual sacrifices and Temple activities can be north in Shiloh?
Q. I have a friend who is very liberal and we are always talking about coal. He of course is against it and I am for it. His latest question to me is this “ what do you think God thinks when he looks down and sees us destroying his creation?” So what could I tell him?
Q. Here’s a question that has bothered me for some time: if the nations in which Israel had been living for some 2000 years are to be destroyed, what sort of “wealth” are we talking about that would be brought into her during the Millennium? Consider that there would in all likelihood be NO world economy at all, and even if there were a few commercial aircraft, that would be capable of flying, who would be left to even repair or maintain them? I am assuming that no boats would be available as Revelation speaks of their destruction, and to go by land from America would be a stunningly arduous journey if the seas were all dried up and only land travel would be possible.
Q. I’m not a new Christian and I know a lot about the Bible, but I have never in my life heard the interpretation that Hosea 6:2 means the Church Age will last 2000 years and then the Lord will return to establish His Kingdom. . The one I’ve heard is that Hosea 6:2 will be fulfilled during the Tribulation in a literal three days and on the third one Christ will return. Where does this other idea come from?
Q. Regarding Rev 20:1-3 The Millenial Reign, I don’t understand something. Where are we, who have been faithful to Jesus all of our lives during this time period? I gave my life to Christ and am a firm believer. If Satan is released during the 1000 years, and there’s enough sin left in the heart of man, do I have to fight this battle with myself all over again? OR, do we who have accepted Jesus sacrifice get to rule with Him and be protected from Satan’s lies during the millennium? Please clarify for me.
Q. Re: Saved From The Worst But Kept From The Best? When you wrote about the man being ejected from the wedding feast, you said “He hadn’t kept himself pure and had lost his salvation. When the Lord returned, he tried to gain entrance into the Kingdom in his own clothing (on the strength of his own righteousness) without the righteousness imputed to him by faith (the wedding clothes). He was discovered and ejected.” This man was already at the wedding feast. How then did someone who God knew was not a Christian get into Heaven in the first place? Am I reading this incorrectly?
I’ve been researching the term “outer darkness lately”. There are many sites on the ‘net that bring in this wedding crasher man into this phrase, and a lot of them suggest that Christians who do not get any crowns, or lazy Christians who have no reward are thrown into the outer darkness. No matter where I search, I keep getting conflicting ideas and different opinions. It seems as though no one has a clear answer. To say this has me perplexed is putting it mildly.
Q. Will the church -in New Jerusalem- be separate from all other believers for eternity? Will there be 2 heavens? Thank you for considering questions from confused people like me.
