What happens to infants when they die?

infants when they dieIf all men and women are born into a state of sinfulness, then what happens to infants when they die? Or when someone is mentally incapacitated to confess their faith?

The question of how God accommodates the souls of children (or for that matter, the souls of invalids, mentally incapacitated, etc.) is not easy to answer, though Scripture does give us a limited answer.

What is the New Jerusalem?

New Jerusalem Is the New Jerusalem found on earth, and will we see the Father there? Beginning in Revelation 21, this scene takes place after the end of the 1,000-year Kingdom on earth. We see John describe it as the old heavens and Earth have been destroyed.

Revelation 21:1-4 (NKJV)

All Things Made New

21 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also, there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God, Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

This scene from Revelation 21 takes place after the end of the 1,000-year Kingdom on earth. At the end of chapter 20, we’re told that our present creation will be completely destroyed and will be found no more. Continue reading

What Is The Meaning Of Four Blood Moons

four blood moonsThe recent increase of blood moons has led students and scholars alike to speculate whether these occurrences are the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy concerning the last days. We had four blood moons no that long ago.

 

In late September 2015, the moon again experiences a total lunar eclipse. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes entirely through the earth’s shadow. The earth’s shadow casts an orange hue upon the moon, causing the moon to appear reddish-orange in the night sky. This unusual appearance has led some to call it a “blood moon.” Continue reading
