Where Will The Tribulation Martyrs Live?

Q.  If during the millennium the Church dwells in the heavenly Jerusalem, and tribulation survivors live in natural bodies on the restored earth,  where do the martyred tribulation saints belong?  Will their resurrected bodies be like those of the Church?  Do they belong with Israel, or with the Church or some other group?  In other words. how will they fit into the millennium, what is their purpose in God’s plan?

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.

Defining The End

Q. Your website is such a blessing to me. May God bless you for it because it has strengthened me in many ways. I have a question regarding Matt 24:14:  And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come (Matthew 24:14).  My question is this… can you define “the end” mentioned in Matt 24:14?

Millennial Saints

Q.  After the judgments that follow the Second Coming, believing survivors from the Great Tribulation will go into the Millennial Kingdom in their natural state and have children.  Of those millions of children, some will believe and be saved; others will not. During the thousand years, many believers and nonbelievers will die.  What will happen to their souls after death?  They can’t go to the New Jerusalem. So, where will they be until the Great White Throne resurrection and judgment?

The Last One Saved

Q. My daughter and I were discussing two statements in the Bible, one about “the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled” in Luke 21:24 and the other one is Romans 11:25, “when the fullness of the Gentiles be come in”. That that means there is ONE person who will be the final Gentile to be saved, and I believe this means before the rapture.  If so, then it would appear that NO Gentile will be saved during the tribulation. If that is the case, are all the tribulation saints that are killed Jewish? Does that mean any Christians in name only who will be left behind at the rapture would not have any possibility of getting saved during the tribulation as possibly indicated by 2 Thess. 2:11-12?
