Q. We read where Saul, David and Solomon were anointed as Kings. Does this mean that when Christ returns he will require anointing? Since he arrives as King has He been anointed in heaven and do you think Hebrews 1:9 is in reference to this?
Q. The common answer to the ‘age of grace’ people’s questions regarding marriage/sex etc in heaven is Matt 22:30. But you always encourage us to study the Bible in light of the context and who was being spoken to. As I was reading this section of scripture this week it struck me that Jesus is addressing the Sadducees and talking about resurrected Old Covenant Jews who have an entirely different future than the saved ones of the New Covenant going into the New Jerusalem. It sounds like the Church age Believers are not the ones having their destiny, along with its activities, addressed here. Am I reading this correctly or missing something?
Q. A friend & I are having a disagreement as to whether there will be snakes in Heaven. First off, will there be any and second what is Isaiah 11:8 & 9 referring to? Thank you so much for your fabulous website and God bless you
Q. You answered a question about Tending The Tree of Life, in which you made a statement that the New Jerusalem will not be on Earth. Can you clarify this?
Q. In studying Revelation 21 & 22, I am perplexed by the verses that talk about the nations living on the New Earth and why they need the leaves of the tree of life for healing. Who are these people and where did they come from? Do they have glorified bodies also?
Q. I would like to know about the fruit on the tree of life in revelation 22:2. Is this a spiritual fruit we as GOD’s children will take of ?
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
From our studies you can see that for the past 20 years or more the battle of Ezekiel 38-39 has appeared to be on the brink of fulfillment several times. There have always been the same few preceding conditions left to be met. For the most part they’ve been Turkey switching sides, the US being taken out of the picture, and Israel living in an assumed state of peace with its neighbors.
Q. After the tribulation period is over and the millennium begins, what happens to the folks that die during the millennium period. Do their souls go to heaven or do they immediately get new bodies and go to be with the the folks who were raptured?
Q. Recently I heard a sermon on “wiping away our tears”. It was stated that Rev. 21:4 was in reference to the Great White Throne judgment. We will witness this judgment and will be sorrowful for who we see condemned to Hell. God will have to wipe away our tears. What are your thoughts?
Q. I recently heard a well known evangelist comment that Isaiah 66:22-24 was evidence believers in heaven would take an “annual tour” to observe unbelievers in hell. When asked “for what purpose” he explained (paraphrased) so that we might appreciate how blessed we are to enjoy God’s favor in heaven. Since we are told there would be no more tears or sadness in heaven this explanation does not seem reasonable. I certainly would not be happy or consoled to see those suffering in hell especially if some of those suffering were known to me - and as an “annual event”?. What is your take on this scripture?
