How Will God Take Away Our Tears?

Q.  In Rev 21:4 it says that God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow.  My 84 year old father is a good man, but he does not believe in God and is not born again. I love him dearly. How will God take away my tears and sorrow knowing that he is in eternal torment ? Will God wipe my memory of anyone who is not there with me or when I’m resurrected will I gain some higher understanding and understand that for my Dad it has to be that way. Either way I can’t bear thinking about it.

Why Another Temple? Follow Up

Q.  Re:  Why Another Temple?  I understand there will always be a temple for the Jewish people even during the Millennium. I don’t understand why, as Zola Levitt said, “Here come the Jews with that slaughterhouse religion of theirs”.  Why do they need to sacrifice critters, whom I love, if they now have Jesus who gave the ultimate sacrifice?  Can’t they have a temple and just honor Him? He clearly is the only way to salvation, not rites and rituals.

Abraham’s City

Q.   I have a question about Abraham in Hebrews 11:10: “For he (Abraham) looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God”.  Every time I read something you’ve written about The New Jerusalem being the permanent home of the Church and only the Church, that verse always comes up in my mind.  How do I rectify Abraham looking for a city whose maker and builder is God?  Is this city that he is looking for the same city we, the church, will occupy?  If so, is Abraham part of the church too?

Singing Mountains And Clapping Trees

Q. “The mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.” (Isaiah 55:12)

Is this the new Jerusalem? When we are completely free from sin, and put on Christ completely and be like Him as He is, will we have power and closeness to the creation where we hear mountains/hills sing and trees clap their hands? To think all material things that bring joy but not everlasting is to be replaced with creation makes my heart leap. Surely to hear a mountain speak must be simple divine.
