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…

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?
