    Rev 21:4 and God shall wipe away etc etc
    and Isaiah 43:16-21 (v19) Behold I will do a new thing
    Are these 2 books talking about the same thing? eg
    When Israel and us will be together in the N/Jerusalem with Jesus being
    King of kings and Lord of Lords for 1,000 years?

    Hi Linda,. 144,000 is not literal, 12 x 12 is the number for the church or spiritual Israel, Jews and Gentiles, (the "new Jerusalem") the dead know nothing and wait in the grave like Lazarus did, (not heaven) for Christ's return to be "called" (resurrected). I agree God will not torture the unsaved in "hell". The second death (by fire) will consume them within seconds and sin will be gone forever.
  • Linda Morgan
    I believe that only 144.000 ( little flock) go to heaven and we will be in a death sleep. Until Jesus shouts " come out " at the time of the new paradise on earth. GOD wanted us all to live in a earthly paradise like Adam and Eve had. He wouldn't send us to heaven then send us back to earth. It's all in the bible.and he would not send people to a burning he'll. They will just die or stay dead.

    Brother Roger, we will know each other as we have know one another on earth, however, the "relationship" will be different as Bro. Anthony stated, the relationship in glory will be based as brethren in Christ. Be blessed ... your granny will know that you were her grandson, and will be glad that you made it over as a brethren in Christ. Be Blessed!
  • Stephen B
    Roger Austin, you will indeed know your loved ones by name! And you will know all of the saints by name. Peter knew Moses and Elijah. Even the rich man knew Lazarus and 'father Abraham' though at that time there was a 'great gulf fixed' and he could not pass to them.
  • Anthony Terry
    No ma'm, I was teaching a brother of mine in dealing with his 17 year old daughter. Scripture tells that we will be brothers and sisters. Even here and now my wife is my wife but I am always to see her as my sister in Christ as well for this will be how we see each other within the Kingdom
