Millennium Or Eternity?

Q. In a recent post you wrote:

What follows the Millennium? God only knows. The Bible, being the handbook for the Age of Man speaks neither of events before its beginning nor after its end. It instructs us on only three things of eternal duration. God Himself (Isa 43:10), life for believers (John 3:16), and punishment for unbelievers (Matt 25:46). The rest is left for us to wonder about, and for God to reveal as it suits His purpose.”

At the end of Revelations, it says there will be “new heavens and a new earth”…..In light of your writing above, what is your interpretation of the new heavens and new earth?

Will The Church Live On Earth?

Q. I am confused on a question about the Millennium. I had come to believe that the Church would also dwell on the earth with the Tribulation Saints during this time. Is this not the case, will those of us raptured, not dwell also on earth?

New Or Renew?

Q. I’ve taken note that a well known Bible teacher states that the Earth is a world without end, and uses Eph. 3:21 to back that up. But looking to Isaiah 65:17 says the Lord will create new Heavens and a new Earth; and that the former will not be remembered. This teacher says the Earth will be “restored”, but using the Strong’s concordance, the word translated new in Isaiah 65:17 is #2319, (kaw-dawsh) which means “new”-fresh, new thing, not #2318, (kaw-dash), which means renew.  Am I missing something?

Mansions on Earth?

Q. One pastor recently said,

“In the Millennium, we who will be raptured will live in earthly mansions that are already on Earth,  and the first preferences of occupying them are ours  as rulers with Christ!”

Is this true?  According to 1 Thes. 4:16-17 and 1 Corinthians 15:52 – after Rapture, we will be in glorified spirit bodies which do not require physical accommodations on earth, right? We can be anywhere in the universe in a split second. It is mentioned in the Scripture that the Lord Jesus, after resurrection, appeared at least eleven times. There is no record of the Lord Jesus having a physical accommodation all these times. I believe spirit bodies do not require any accommodation as the Lord did not have a residential address after resurrection, until ascension.

Will We Have Access To Earth?

Q. Is there any interchange between the natural people populating earth (who lived through the trib) and the OT resurrected saints working in the temple with Jesus and the church resurrected saints in New Jerusalem? Will the natural people see and talk with the resurrected saints?

A Question About Eternity

Q. I was reading Revelation again for the umpteenth time again and something struck me different. I was under the impression that when eternity begins, the entire 4 dimensions we live in will be destroyed. IE in eternity all things will either be 1) in the lake of fire or 2) in heaven (that exists outside our time domain) and there is no other possibility of any other location.   Upon reading it again it appears to say that the new heaven and new earth that were created at the beginning of the millennial reign will continue for eternity.   Am I missing something?

Animal Sacrifice, Follow Up

Q. I recently read your article entitled “Animal Sacrifice in the Millennium”.  I just don’t understand why innocent animals will continue (in the Millennium) to be condemned to suffer for the sins of man, especially when Jesus himself died to cleanse us of our sins?  I read through the scripture you quoted, and I don’t see how it supports this practice.

Don’t Pray For America

Commentary by Jack Kelley

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him” (1Cor. 2:9)

In the time just before the Babylonian captivity, the people of Judah were certain that God would not permit the Babylonians to conquer them. “After all,” they said, “we’re God’s people. His Temple is in our midst. Surely He will spare us.” Their leaders encouraged them to think this way and false prophets assured them that everything would soon be normal again. Even when the Babylonian armies were at the very gates of Jerusalem they were expecting God to miraculously deliver them.

Understanding Micah 5

Q. We are wondering who the 7 shepherds and eight principal men  in Micah 5:5 are.  I typed Micah into search and found some information in a question about an Assyrian anti-Christ.

It’s great to have a Bible teacher to ask when you have a question.  Thanks for all the time & effort you put into this.

Old Testament Saints In The Millennium

Q. I was just reading your recent post titled “Will David Be King Again?”.  In it, you stated that you believe that a descendant of David’s (not David himself) will rule over Israel during the Millennium (under the authority of Jesus, the King) because he has to offer a sin offering for himself on Passover and on Tabernacles. This got me to thinking; “What will be the role of the OT Saints during the Millennium?”.
