  • A disciple
    We read how at the Great White Throne all shall stand before the KING for judgment, and it says that the books will be opened, and the book of Life. We read about how in the world to come the Saints will be in charge of the government of the world under Christ. Who are the Nations of the saved? Ezekiel 16:53-63 suggests that all Nations shall be restored to their former estate; minus the wicked.
  • A disciple
    "...Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?" The Day of the LORD shall be the commencement of the Regeneration, when the Lord Jesus Christ shall sit on the throne of His glory. In that day Israel shall say, Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the LORD; and in that day shall they repent and be converted with weeping and crying all over the Country and for ever changed!
