Q. Concerning this Scripture: “As it is written: No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit.” (1 Cor. 2:9-10). Please excuse me for asking a dumb question but I don’t know what the last part means or “but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit”. Maybe I’m complicating this verse but I really don’t know what the Spirit has revealed.
Q. I have been reading several news articles this morning about how the situation in Egypt has serious implications for Israel. With pressure building on their northern borders with Hezbollah now there is a possibility of having an even greater foe forming on their southern border with much more advanced military capabilities. How does Egypt play into the upcoming events and what does the Word of God say concerning Egypt?
Q. Will there be an ‘old’ Jerusalem in Israel during the millennium, since there is a New Jerusalem for the saints to live in?
Q. I was reading an answer from a reader about where the Jews and other believers would be. I understood you to say, the Jews would be in Israel and the rest in the New Jerusalem. I think I’m confused about New Jerusalem and Heaven. Are they the same? If there is a separation, why, since the Jews have accepted Jesus as their messiah.
Q. In a recent article on the Book of Life you said only the church will be listed in the Lamb’s Book of Life, which is different from the original Book of Life. Won’t those who come to faith during the trib/great trib also be written in the Lambs Book of Life?
Q. We have a question concerning how much we will be in the physical presence of Jesus after the Resurrection, in the Millennium. I say that there is only one Jesus who has a physical body and that that he can only be physically in one place at one time. My wife says, nonsense, He can do anything he wants and be physically present in many places.
Q. In reference to dealing with sin in Millennium–I ‘m not sure there will be sin during the millennium, certainly Satan’s demonic spirits will be at work trying, but since Satan is bound during this time I believe the people living then are able to resist sinning. When Satan is released for a short while at the end I believe the ones he goes to gather are his demons who have been trying but failing to accomplish this. They are the number as the sands of the sea that gather to do final battle.
Q. I have heard that one who commits a transgression during the Millennium will have until the following morning to repent and make the matter right. Does Psalms 101:8 confirm this?
Q. Revelation talks about the 144,000 remnant of Jews left at the end. Do you know the current population of Jews in Israel? My understanding was that God miraculously saves them in these next few years. However, it recently dawned on me, & I started crying when I realized that it appears more and more like there will be another blood bath. Would you please explain this for me?
Q. I listened to your commentary at the end of Revelation in regards to the New Earth. First, I understand that the church will reside in the New Jerusalem. But will we (the church) have the ability, right, or desire to interface with the New Earth and its inhabitants? And if the church is supposed to go to heaven to be with Jesus, then how can he set up shop in the New Earth at the same time? Jesus as flesh and blood can only be in one place at one time. How does that work? Finally, if the church is in heaven what point would there be to have a physical glorified body? Why not just have spirit?
