    Why do you all think the LORD is so weak? " new Jerusalem is within us". The New Jerusalem is EXACTLY what HE said. A 1500 mile cube within a diamond sphere. That "teacher" will regret his teaching some day as he is leading people, weak people, to doubt the LORD.
  • David
    Why do people who don't understand a passage always say it is subjective. The Word of the LORD is real and literal. Don't act as if a thing is too much or too great for the LORD. The city is as described as a 12,000 furlong (1500 mile) per side cube with a wall ( a sphere) of jasper ( diamond) around it. Do the math.same size as moon and hollow..like the moon. Aliens? Try fallen angels to fool us

    Ron......The bible says "in hell he lifted his eyes"..speaking of the rich man....I don't think hell is a place where souls will burn and be gone....it's a place where there will be torment, but it's a place that people choose to go..your right that God doesn't torture and God doesn't send people to hell....That's why he sent his only son; so we wouldn't have to go to hell.....
  • Servant of the most high God
    Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. Very very clear Jesus is talking about PEOPLE going into everlasting fire. fire that never ends. Do Not Mock God
  • Servant of the most high God
