Someone asked: Will Yahshua the Anointed judge all personally?: Matthew 19:27-29
The Disciples will judge Israel and disciples (the elect) will judge all, including such as the Queen of Sheba, who is one of the elect. Yahshua the Anointed is enthroned as the highest potentate of the Judgment just as the District Attorney on Law and Order has many subordinates (or “Assistant DAs”).
Someone asked: Will their worm will never die?. Isaiah 66:15, 16, 23, 24.
This refers to the trash heap around Jerusalem after the final battle for the city. Although the NEW CITY will be a beautiful place, the decaying remains of the enemy will serve as a reminder of their disobedience and rebellion. Even when the worms have consumed all and the fires are burned out. The memory of the whole terrible thing remains forever.
Someone asked: Second Chance in the Millennium?
The Resurrection and Millennium do not constitute a second chance. This will be the First Chance for most people to know Yahshua the Anointed. Those who knew Yahshua the Anointed before but did not love him enough to keep his commandments and those who deliberately rejected Yahshua the Anointed will end up on the trash heap (Gehenna).
Young’s Literal Bible 'And be not afraid of those killing the body, and are not able to kill the soul, but fear rather Him who is able both soul and body to destroy in Gehenna.’
Weymouth's New Testament ‘And do not fear those who kill the body, but cannot kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.’
Those who take part in a rebellion against Jerusalem or are part of the beast system when Yahshua the Anointed returns will be killed in battle or annihilated in Fire Lake. Rev 19:20-21. Both soul and body are to be destroyed.
Those who never had the opportunity to know him will, for, in that day, 10. “they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.” Heb 8:10,11.
Those who are born of spirit will live on in the mystical Body of Messiah until the resurrection then become kings, priests and judges in the administration of Yahshua the King.
the thief on the cross go to Heaven that day?
“shmeron” – “This day” – far more than a literal 24-hour period.
Paradise “tw paradeisw” – the paradise or “the enclosed garden” Referring to the “new earth and sky” of Rev 21-23. This is the resurrection kingdom located on the earth.
Where did Yahshua the Anointed go from the cross that day? 1 Peter 3:18-20 to the spirits in prison – the fallen angels – to proclaim his victory over death.
The thief did not go to prison with Yahshua the Anointed. He died and his just-born spirit returned to Eloha (G-d) to await the resurrection of the dead whereas the other thief deliberately rejected Yahshua the Anointed. This thief may expect stiff punishment in the Millennium or the trash heap.
What survives when we (the born again) die? Matthew 22:31.
But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by Elohim, saying, 32. I am the Elohim (G-d) of Abraham, and the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob? Elohim is not the Eloha of the dead, but of the living.
John 3:6-7 The human spirit is born through a miracle of restoration. The human spirit is created by Yahweh and is good. We who were once spiritually dead become spiritually alive – babes in the spirit.
It is our spirit that survives physical death.
Eccl 12:7 The spirit returns to Eloha (G-d) before our bodies return to dust.
John 14:2 In Father’s house are many rooms – we can only understand this destination allegorically or symbolically – it’s beyond our comprehension and experience as to life outside of the body.
Rev 6:9-11 – Another symbolic representation of those spiritually alive but physically dead as “souls under the altar,” souls simply meaning living beings – referring to those that were “saved” out of the tribulation
1 Cor 15:16-22 – Those fallen asleep in Christ; 22-24 – the order of resurrection; 51-58 – Changed!
What Happens Then?
Luke 20:35-38: In the resurrection, those born of spirit will be as angels, or as the resurrected Yahshua the Anointed.
John 11:20-27 Our bodies will be resurrected and glorified and our spirit reunited with them.
2 Tim 2:7-15 We will rule and reign (and judge) with him over the renewed earth.
