Spiritual reality is conveyed in metaphor. See Jesus' parables.I'm actually disagreeing with the term "metaphor..." This is not a similitude to me, but a spiritual reality.
OKIf the angels neither marry nor are given in marriage, that is the case for all the angels in the OT...maleness or femaleness, as my limited understanding sees it in the spiritual realm, is in the sense of seed bearing, or fruit bearing.
But the kingdom of God isn't on earth. That's a problem for those who see those in the kingdom of God as inheriting this earth. What does "the meek will inherit the earth" actually mean?I'm with Corrie Ten Boom. I'm a panmillennialist. It will pan out, and I'll see it when it comes. I'm also promillennialist. I'm all for it. As far as the church goes, He delegated to us His authority as the Son of Adam, He promised I would do all the works He did and greater, and that He was always only ever with me right up to the end of the age. That's not a millennial thing. That's a day/night thing. As He promised, night came. No man could work, and now the day is dawning, and the church is awakening to the authority He measured to us in His new will and testament.
We are still stung by wasps and stinging nettles, and can catch deadly diseases. Our bodies still die. I think our flesh remains under the curse all right.There is something to "no longer being under the curse" that belies your claim. We are no longer under that curse.
The prophetic roles we have been given are still being played out. You are right, and as the "Woke" enforcers becomes increasingly depraved, we can see how seriously Paul's prophecy in Romans 1 should be taken.
How can satan fall a second time?It comes as it came the day Jesus sent out the seventy, and satan is poised once again to fall...like lightning from heaven as the church takes it to his gates.
Yeah...that comes later. There is a lot more that is about to be fulfilled. Peter talks of a "salvation that stands ready to be revealed in the last days." That is something imminent to look forward to.
