Will there be tears in heaven at the bema?

Studying Bible Prophecy

 

This is a difficult topic, and in order to answer it we must look at a few Scriptures to get a clear understanding of it. First of all, the main passage in Revelation 21:4 that we generally go to that mentions tears must be taken in its proper context. What this verse is telling us is that in heaven, or in the eternal state, there will be no tears, nor will there be death or mourning or crying or pain. Now the question is, when will these things be wiped away or taken away? Well, it seems logical to me that they will disappear instantly when we are translated into the eternal state…or into heaven.

Another passage that confirms what we are saying is 1 Corinthians 15:52-55. It is the famous Rapture passage. It speaks of our changing into what is “imperishable,” and when we put on “immortality.”  Then…

How Will Christians Be Rewarded? Two Questions to Ponder

Studying Bible Prophecy

Will there be private ownership of land or co-ownership?  

The way I see it from Scripture is that we will share in God’s glory and will be his heirs and fellow heirs with Christ (Rom. 8:16-17). What does that mean? Well, as His bride, everything that He owns is ours also. So, we rule over everything with Him. Everything that is His is also ours—forever.

On the other hand, as part of our reward for our good deeds, each of us will be given responsibilities over certain parcels of land. In a sense we own it all with Him and will rule over it all; yet, in another sense we will have some individual ownership, or responsibilities.

How does one build up treasures in heaven now, and also after we die?

We can store up treasures in heaven now simply by doing good deeds; and those treasures will be…

How will things change for the Christian after the Millennium?

Studying Bible Prophecy

 

What we are mainly considering here is those of the church who have been rewarded at the bema judgment. As I have previously written about, our main reward in the Millennial kingdom will be the obtaining of responsibilities of service and rulership in God’s kingdom, in which we will reign and rule with Christ. Some will have great responsibilities, by which they will rule over many; and some will have few responsibilities, by which they will rule over a few.

Now the question before us is, how will our responsibilities of rulership change after the millennium, when we will enter the eternal state of the new heaven and the new earth?

First of all, it must be clear that the second we all are raptured, we will go into the eternal state—because, to have a raptured or resurrection body is being in the eternal state. And where is that?…

Covid-19: Used by Satan and the Globalists to Reduce the Population

Chinese traveling from China to New York and around the World.

Just today I read that Peter Navarro, the Presidents top aid, suggested that for two months the Chinese hid the Covid-19 virus from the world and then sent hundreds of thousands of infected Chinese on aircraft to Milan, New York and around the world. However, the President doesn’t think that it was deliberate, but accidental.

Nonetheless, whether it was accidental or deliberate, we can believe that it has been Satan’s plot to kill people. And in case you didn’t know it, it has been that globalists dream to reduce the population to 500 million people. So, why wouldn’t they use covid-19 to help fulfill that goal. And you can bet that more viruses—accidental or not—will be on the way. We should be prepared.

Who are the globalists? I think most of the world is, but the die-hard globalists are certainly the Chinese, and the World Health Organization, and Bill Gates, and people like Nancy Pelosi and the Clinton’s and the Obama’s. Stay tuned to more globalist news—but at the same time keep trusting the Lord!

What Is the Purpose of the Rewards We Will Receive in Heaven?

Studying Bible Prophecy

The overall purpose of our rewards, as in all things, will be to the praise of His glory (Eph. 1:12). Hence, whatever reward we receive: whatever praise, whatever service, or whatever responsibility, it will not only be filled with His glory, but it will reflect that glory back to Him. So, we will find ourselves in a never-ending cycle of glory. He gives us glory in our rewards. And then, as we use our rewards of service to service Him, His glory will be reflected back to Him.

Now, though all will receive His glory, and all will gladly give it back to Him (Rev. 4:10); not all will have the same capacity to radiate His glory. That may seem unfair, but we now in our works have the opportunity to determine our own destiny. Yes, He gives us now, through our obedience, the chance to make things right for…

How Will We Be Rewarded At the Bema Judgment?

Studying Bible Prophecy

  I think the best reward we will get is to hear Jesus say to us in front of all, “Well done My good and faithful servant.” That alone will be enough. But He has more in store for us that will be a joy to us for eternity. Our reward for eternity will be ownership of land, rulership, and areas of responsibility.

By land ownership. According to Randy Alcorn, from his book, Heaven, we will be “pioneers and settlers on the New Earth.”3 The term “inherit the earth” is God’s promise to those who fear Him and wait on Him, and is a term that suggests land ownership on the New Earth (and, I think, also on the new millennial earth). But if you are not particularly excited about owning land, you could also think of it as being prosperous. And I doubt that you will…

Hurt Not the Oil and the Wine — Ernie’s Musings

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. (Revelation 6:6) The Wuhan bug[1] continues to impact the world economy. Without a doubt, the virus presents […]

Hurt Not the Oil and the Wine — Ernie’s Musings

Unprecedented

The world is headed fast toward globalism, and things like this pandemic are speeding it up as nations are learning more and more how to work together in a crisis.

Ernie's Musings

For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. (Isaiah 64:4)

Tune your television to any news station you like these days and you will hear the word “unprecedented” repeated often. The rapid worldwide spread of the Wuhan Bug[1] is unprecedented. Those infected by the virus display no symptoms for up to 21 days yet remain contagious and spread it to others unknowingly. That is unprecedented. The shelter-in-place orders around the world are unprecedented. The effect of the virus on the global economy is unprecedented. The loss of employment in the United States (and around the world) – currently over 17% — is unprecedented. Many store shelves are empty of cleaning supplies, drinking water, assorted food items, and TOILET PAPER…

The Meaning of The Crowns Rewarded Us at The Judgment Seat

Studying Bible Prophecy

Paul, in 2 Corinthians 5:10 says, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.”  The key word we are looking for here is “recompensed.”  It means to be rewarded for. It is God’s praise to us for our good works. It is the way He will bless us for eternity.

A word used to describe our blessed reward is “crown.” In one respect, we may see this word as a reference to rulership. For because we will receive crowns, He will make us rulers alongside of Him in His kingdom.

In another respect we may see our crowns, generally, as our eternal life; and yet each crown given may represent certain characteristics of our eternal life. The following are five different examples…
