Q. Will The God loving Jews from the old testament,or just the leading Patriarchs,like Moses,Abraham,Isaac,Jacob etc.actually live in this city with the “Bride of Christ” or will only “The Bride of Christ” live there. Where and who will live in the rest of the “The New Earth”. The New City will be 1500 miles cubed so who will live there and who will live in the rest of the new World?
A. Rev. 21:27 says, “Nothing impure will ever enter it (New Jerusalem) nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”
Obviously, resurrected Jews from the Old Testament will not be impure, but I don’t believe their names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, which I believe is different from the Book of Life that God kept during Old Testament times. I think the Lamb’s book of Life contains only the names of believers from the Church Age. Based on Old Testament prophecies I think believers from those times will live in Israel on Earth.
