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…

Worship In Heaven

Q. I have learned a lot from your site and i thank you for it. I have heard or read that we will be praising the Lord forever and ever when in heaven.

I am a born again Christian and have been for many years.  I love the Lord and I know he is the only answer.  however, I know how God loves a humble heart and can’t stand people who are high on themselves. By us worshiping God forever and all the time, is God saying he wants us to be humble but yet he covets all the worship all the time? 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…

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?
