Jews, Gentiles, And The Church

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.

The Book Of Life, Follow Up

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?

Will Jesus Have Time For Us?

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.

Sin In The Millennium, Follow Up

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.

What’s Ahead For The Jewish People

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?

The Church In Heaven

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?

The Water Vapor Canopy

Q. Re: No More Sea.  I have a question on the whole idea of a water vapor canopy. Where did you come up with this idea? It sounds plausible but did it come from the Word or another place?

No More Sea

Q. My question comes from Revelation 21 and 22.  I’m wondering if something has been lost in translation.  Rev. 21:1 says “. . . there was no longer any sea.”, the earth having been restored.  Rev. 22, drawing on Ezekiel and Zechariah, indicates the River of Life flowing to the Mediterranean in the west and Dead Sea in the east.  Would you please help me understand how the sea is gone yet seems to exist during the Millennium?

Sin In The Millennium, Follow Up

Q. In your answer to the question “Sin In The Millennium?” you said “Lately I’ve had the suspicion that a third testament may emerge for the Millennial Age, just like a second one emerged for the Church Age. There are simply too many unanswered questions.”  In light of Rev. 22:18 (“If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues”, etc.) would it not be correct to believe that the Holy Scripture is pretty much complete in its fullness?  And since we will have the King Jesus reign with humankind on Earth during the Millennium, will the Lord’s physical presence not be enough to provide all the answers to people’s questions?
