Who Will Inhabit Israel During The Millennium?

Q. We know from the “sheep and goats” judgment that only “saved” humans will enter into the Kingdom.  By “saved”, I mean those who accepted Jesus’ sacrifice as payment for their sins, and survived the Great Tribulation. In addition, we will have resurrected Old Testament saints and The Church. Continue reading…

Understanding Isaiah 4:1

Q. Re: Isaiah 4:I.  In that day seven women will take hold of one man and say, “We will eat our own food and provide our own clothes; only let us be called by your name. Take away our disgrace!”

Pastor, how do you explain this passage? Continue reading…

More On Millennial Sacrifices

Q. I found it interesting in Ezekiel that temple sacrifices will once again take place during the millennial age.  Since Christ died once and for all and His work is finished, why are there temple sacrifices again?

Will The Church Get Stronger Or Weaker?

Q. I would like to hear your view on our Lord’s words in Matthew 16: 18 – 19 where He gives His Church the “keys to the Kingdom” saying “whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven” and “whatever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven”.  What exactly was Jesus promising here?.   I have encountered various different opinions/teachings for this passage.  While I now agree with your view on the Church becoming weaker towards the end, I have been taught the opposite, that because of promises like this, His Church will move in victory, be overcomers and represent “His light” in the darkness during these last days.

Post Resurrection Life

Q. According to Rev 21:24-27, it appears there are two groups of humans mentioned, 1. The Kings of the Earth 2.The Nations of them that are saved. I have a theory that those of us who are saved will be given an assignment like Adam had to populate a planet and have dominion over it.  Do you think God has prepared for each of as a similar assignment?  After all, I can’t imagine that we will do nothing!  Continue reading…

Worship In The Millennium

Q. Thank you for your work on your website and the thought and study that goes into your articles.  I am sure you are instrumental in many coming to faith in Christ and others to grow in the knowledge of Him.

I have a question regarding the life of the Jews in the millennium.  According to Ezekiel the Jews will have a Temple and will return to sacrificing animals as they did in the Old Testament.  My question is why will they do this and why would God require it for these Jews who were the Elect and accepted Christ as the Messiah before the 2nd Coming?  It would seem that their acceptance of Christ’s sacrifice for their sin would be like the tribulation saints and the Church’s which forgave sins both past and future and did not require any more sacrifices.  Also, what will the tribulation saints who are alive at the  2nd coming, who enter the Millennium, be doing in regards to worship? Continue reading…

Satan’s 7,000 Year Lease?

Q. I have heard and read it many times that God gave Adam the earth on a ‘lease’ for only 7,000 years. For this reason, when Adam fell and forfeited the earth to Satan, Satan only has 7,000 years to have dominion on this earth. After that Jesus Christ arrives in His Second Advent to reclaim the earth, etc.

Where is the express scripture that says that the earth is on a ‘lease’ of 7,000 years. If there is no express scripture. How can this be inferred? Continue reading…

Food In The Millennium

Q. I have a small question really that I have been asked and I can’t really be definitive in an answer.  In the Millennium with Jesus do we eat meat or do we become vegetarians??  Is. 11:8 talks about ‘wolf not being carnivorous’ and also speaks elsewhere about ‘nothing being hurt on His mountain again. Continue reading…

Understanding Rev. 20-22

Q. Please help me understand the following. You state that only the Church Age Saints will live in the New Jerusalem during the Millennium.  And that the Church Age Saints will be able to go back and forth from the New Jerusalem and earth.  What scripture supports that those Saints will be able to go back and forth?  Is the New Heaven and New Earth created after the Millennium?  Also, when the New Heavens and New Earth are created will the Church Age Saints still reside in the New Jerusalem or will they live on the New Earth?  Does scripture give insight what they will be doing (work, play, create, govern etc.) with regard to the New Heavens and New Earth?  Thank you for any clarification on the above. Continue reading…

Class Division In The Millennium

Q. I was thinking about the millennium the other day and the way I see it,during Christ’s 1000 year reign,there will be two distinct classes on the earth. Those who were raptured and returned to rule with Christ, with perfect bodies that never get old,tired,or sick.  And the tribulation survivors and their descendants, who still have all the maladies of a human body. Do you think this sort of class division will be used by the devil to cause the great rebellion at the battle of Armageddon? Continue reading…
