Looking Upon The Unsaved Dead

Q. Your series from Isaiah was very interesting.  Thanks for all the effort you must have put into it.

I read in Isaiah not long ago where,  I think during the millennium, that people will walk past the burning lake of fire, and will look at those suffering and be reminded of what happens to those who don’t accept god’s grace.  It’s in Isaiah 66:24 and you quoted it at the end of the conclusion.

Do we have to look at this?  I don’t care to see it myself. Continue reading…

Who Are The Ruthless?

Q. On 02/14/09 you wrote: “The Psalmist said that the Lord is a shield for us, (Psalm 3:3) our refuge and our fortress. (Psalm 91:2) The Lord’s protective power will keep the ruthless at bay during His 1000 year reign, and at the end of it He will destroy them like He destroyed Babylon.”

Who are the “ruthless” that will be kept at bay during the Millennium?  Where are they; what are they if all the world is to be Edenic? Continue reading…

Will We Have Super Powers?

Q. You stated in an answer to someone else that when we get to heaven, we will be able to appear and disappear at will and that we will be able to travel at the speed of thought.  This sounds wonderful, a fantastic game of hide and seek.

Does it say somewhere in the Bible about these abilities we will have or is this your perception based on other abilities that it talks about? Continue reading…

Heaven Or New Jerusalem?

Q. Can you explain who will be in heaven and who will be in the New Jerusalem? From what I have read it seems to me like the rapture happens, we are taken to heaven and then after the tribulation we go to the New Jerusalem for 1,000 years. And then what after the 1,000 years?  Will we ever go back to heaven? Continue reading…

Do We Have Our New Heart Yet?

Q. Both Jeremiah and Ezekiel prophesied that believers would have “a new heart” (Jer. 31:33, Ezek. 11:19-20 and 36:26-27), and Paul and other N.T. writers seem to indicate this prophecy has come true in Rom. 2:29, Rom. 6:17, and Heb. 8:10.

Would you say that this prophecy has been fulfilled or do you believe the new heart is not yet available to us? Continue reading…

Sabbath In The Millennium, Follow Up

Q. Re: Sabbath In The Millennium

This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “The gate of the inner court facing east is to be shut on the six working days, but on the Sabbath day and on the day of the New Moon it is to be opened. The prince is to enter from the outside through the portico of the gateway and stand by the gatepost. The priests are to sacrifice his burnt offering and his fellowship offerings. He is to worship at the threshold of the gateway and then go out, but the gate will not be shut until evening.  On the Sabbaths and New Moons the people of the land are to worship in the presence of the LORD at the entrance to that gateway.” Ezekiel 46:1-3

Will you please provide a discussion of what this Scripture means?  What is going on?  Who does what?  Who is the “prince” (with a lower case “p”)?  Who is “he” that is “to worship”? Continue reading…

Sabbath In The Millennium

Q. I understand thru your teachings about the sacrifices returning to the worship practices in the millennium.  My question is about the Sabbath.  Is there any mention of a Sabbath day being observed during this 1000 years? Thank you so much for your insight and may you be blessed for all your study and teaching of God’s word. Continue reading…

What About The Fallen Angels?

Q. I have a question about Satan’s angels. Does the Bible offer any clues as to their motivation for joining Satan in his rebellion? While people have the weak excuse that they have never seen God, Satan’s angels have all been in His presence. Satan wanted to be “like the Most High”, but all his angels knew that they would be subordinate to him. So why would they betray God when they knew He was real and quite likely to get very mad? What could the devil have offered them? Continue reading…

Wiping Away Our Tears

Q. The Scriptures say that there will be no tears in Heaven.  What will happen to our memories then?  If someone I loved turned out not to be a believer and I knew they didn’t get to Heaven, I don’t think I could take it. Continue reading…
