Let me state up front, I am not looking for a debate at this point. I am looking for exegetical answers to some questions that I have been unable to find addressed in some of our dispensational commentaries and such. If a non-dispensationalist wants to disagree with a particular answer offered by a dispensationalist, then please start another thread dedicated to discussing that issue. If the dispensationalists disagree amongst themselves in the answers they provide, that's fine. I'd be glad to know that there are differences. With all that said, here are some of my questions in no particular order.(btw, I use the NIV) 1)In Hebrews 11:8-10, 13-16, several references are made to a city that Abraham and others were looking forward to. Verse 16 refers to it as a "heavenly city", one that God has prepared for them. And in Galations 4:25-26, a contrast is offered between two cities. One is called the present city of Jerusalem and the other is referred to as the "Jerusalem that is above" which is "free" which Paul says is "our mother". Are the people of Israel to inherit an earthly city or is it a heavenly city? And why did the people of Hebrews 11 long for a heavenly city when it was an earthly inheritance that was supposedly promised to them forever? Why is it the Jerusalem that is "above" that is "free" of which believers are said to be children of and not the actual city of Jerusalem? 2) What is the promise that Christians are said to be heirs of in Gal. 3:29? It speaks of believers as being Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise. What is that promise that Christians share? 3) Is Ephesians 2:11-22 only speaking about the "church age"? Will the distinction between Jew and Gentile last forever? 4) If Daniel 9:27 is speaking to the 7-year tribulation, and the rapture happens tomorrow, are the Jews supposed to have a temple built and in use in the next 3.5 years so that the anti-christ will be able to go in and put an end to the offerings and sacrifices?
