I have been going through the LGV translation of Revelation. If I have further questions, should I raise them as a comment in this post or submit another question in the forum? If you make this post for all LGV translation/footnote questions on Revelation, it is better to change the subject to indicate that (if that’s possible for the admin).
Thank you for the thoughts. I need to chew on this.
John 14:2-3, from what I’ve come across, is the main verse used for showing a heavenly destiny for the saints, and in dispensational circles, for “the church” (ie, Pentecost to Rapture saints) as opposed to an earthly destiny for OT saints and other non-church saints.
Thanks for the clarification on your position on the Father’s house being the earthly Kingdom temple. As I said, I wasn’t fully recollecting your points, hence i mentioned “heavenly” in bracket with a question mark. In my mind, How could Jesus prepare *now* the future earthly Kingdom Temple? I know this is only one passage against a multitude showing earthly destiny. However, this is still an important one, perhaps the best one for the other camp. Any further thoughts on how it can be the Kingdom temple if Jesus is to prepare it now?
Thanks br. Tim. This hermeneutical approach makes sense in light of the NT revelation.
