Note: This was typed in haste while on my lunch break, so just a brainstorm for now. I will take some time to support my ideas biblically later.
All this talk about weeping/gnashing teeth and outer darkness has me wondering how society will be classed during the Millennium.
The Church must be removed for the Trib to play out, so that justifies the resurrection of the entire Church body, but what about Israel, the believing gentiles, and the OT gentiles? How does that work? We know that at least some believers and non-believers will exist in the flesh during the Millennium, hence the need for King-priests.
Who are the King-priests? As far as I know, they consist of matured members of: resurrected Church, resurrected Israel, resurrected Trib gentiles, and possibly resurrected OT gentiles.
Those watching from the Outer Darkness so far are aborted kings from the Church Age.
So the question is, who enters into the Millennium as sinning believers? If some of them are jews, then not all of Israel is resurrected at the Second Advent. Ezekiel 37 talks about the valley of dried bones, which implies that only the dead of Israel get resurrection at Second Advent. Yet, we know that the Second Advent includes OT gentile believers too, since Job described watching Christ return in his own flesh.
Thats all for now, more later.
The word of God is alive and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and the spirit, of the joints and marrow, and is a critic of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
