Everlasting Kingdom: Unraveling the Bible’s Secrets

BIBLE QUIZ: Answers Below

Question #2 Who was the first person to ever go to heaven?

Question #3 Name someone in the Bible who actually said that they wanted to go to heaven?

Question #5 In Isaiah 30:18 thru the end of Chapter 35 is a prophecy about a unique time in Israel. Chapter 35:1 mentions “the desert will rejoice and blossom like a rose”. Is this 5+ chapter prophecy being fulfilled A) Entirely now; B) Entirely in the future; C) Partly now; D) In the distant past?

Question #6 How many blood red moons does the Bible mention? A) 1; B) 4; C) 7; D) Some other number?

Question #7 All of the essential details of the New Covenant are explained in Jeremiah 31, with all of chapter 30 in the same context. Yeshua and the apostles mentioned them in passing without much contextual info (since Jeremiah did such a good job of that) such as who the New Covenant applies to.

Question #8 When Yehovah returns to earth He will stand on the Mount of Olives and it will split in two (Zechariah 14:3-4). (Note that the tetragrammaton: YHVH appears 15 times in this chapter.) This is certainly one of the most momentous events in the Bible! When the fighting ends and the dust settles, what will the survivors of the enemy nations be forced to do as a millennium of peace ensues—or else face a dire famine?

Question #9 The world’s best question is found in Luke 18:18-23. It is so important that the account is repeated in Matthew 19:16-22 and in Mark 10:17-22: One of the leaders asked [Yeshua], “Good Master, what must I do so that I can inherit eternal Life?” Yeshua gave a very brief answer, but the man wanted a more detailed answer, so Yeshua gave 5 specific examples of what a person needs to do to live forever. Name one of them. Hint: Christianity totally rejects His answer!

Question #10 Consider these 2 parallel passages:

2 Peter 3:10-13 Yet the Day of Yehovah will come like a thieving false minister in a time of moral stupidity and darkness [2], when the Heavens will suddenly pass by [3] with a great noise, and the former things will be dissolved by being set on fire, and the surface of the earth and the things being done on it won’t be found [4]. 11 Since all these things will be dissolved [5], what kind of people should we be in sincere conduct, and reverence, 12 anticipating and desiring the coming of the Day of Yehovah, when the heavens being tried in the fire will be dissolved [or unfastened, set free], and the former things being ignited will melt? 13 But we’re looking forward to a New Heavens and a New Earth as He promised, where the righteous live.

[2] Perhaps too much is being read into the figurative explanation of this “thief in the night” passage, but who doesn’t equate the darkness of night with evil? [3] “Parerchomai” could also refer to when the New Heavens will “come near, come forward, arrive.” [4] The Greek manuscripts say that the earth (land) “will be burned up” instead of “won’t be found.” Revelation describes widespread environmental damage, but not utter destruction. Malachi 4:5-6 predicts that Elijah will come and prevent the earth’s being “annihilated.” Matthew 24:29 describes the same type of cosmic events described here as following the Tribulation, and that is precisely when the Day of Yehovah begins. Isaiah 51 closely parallels this. [5] Very destructive, seemingly “end of the world” sounding language, including the earth being “dissolved” is also found in Isaiah 24:19-23: “The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. 20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard...” (KJV), during the Day of Yehovah (the “lord”)—just before the “millennium.”

Isaiah 51:6-8 'Look' up to the skies, and look at the earth below, because the skies will vanish like smoke, and the earth will wear out like clothing. Those who live there will die like a swarm of gnats [1], but My deliverance will be forever, and My righteousness will never be shattered. 7 “Listen to Me, you who understand righteousness, you people who have 'internalized' My Torah. Don’t be afraid of people’s scorn or fear their insults. 8 Moths will eat them up like clothing, and worms will eat them like they do wool, but My righteousness will last forever, and My deliverance [from sin] thru all generations.

[1] This is not an end of the world/universe reference, the time frame of this chapter clearly concerns the catastrophic Day of Yehovah and the imminent establishment of the Everlasting Kingdom. This topic is further addressed in 2 Peter 3.

Question #11 Revelation 21 describes the New Heavens the New Earth and the New Jerusalem. Does it A) accompany the restoration of Israel; or B) come after the millennium?

Question #12 How many of the Hebrew words translated as “seraphim”, “cherubim”, “god” and “Jerusalem” in English, are actually plural in Hebrew? A) 1: B) 2: C) 3: D) 4.

Question #13 Now that the name of God, completely spelled out, has been found in over 1,000 ancient Hebrew Bible manuscripts (and zero with Yahweh) do you know what it is? There are “about 412,000” searchable references on Google now. In 2004 there was just one website proclaiming it—this one.

Question #14 Word is getting out on another name far faster, so in an original 1611 King James Bible, to the nearest 100 times, how many times does the name “Jesus” show up?

Question #15 Who was the first person in the Bible to claim to be a Christian? A) John; B) Paul; C) Luke; D) No one.

Question #16 What is the most used number in the Bible?


Answer #1: Just before Elijah’s whirlwind ride (2 Kings 1:16-17), he told King Ahaziah that he was going to die (2 Kings 2). Years later he wrote a letter to the new king—2 Chronicles 21:12-15, So did Elijah really go to heaven?.

Answer #2 is found in John 3:13 (right by the most beloved verse in the Bible-3 verses later). So can you go to heaven? Also see HERE.

Answer #3: The only answeris in Isaiah 14:12-14. But HERE is the rest of the story!

Answer #4 B) Israel and Syria: 2 Kings 16:5-6

Answer #5: If you didn’t choose “B”, entirely in the future, then read Isaiah 30:18 thru the end of Chapter 35 very carefully.

Answer #6: Revelation 6:12 Here is a good explanation, tho it really needs some rabbit trails (like rapture) edited out.

Answer #7: Jeremiah 31:31 See The “New Covenant”—Coming Soon

Answer #8: Zechariah 14: 16-19 See my commentart on the Feast of Tabernacles.

Answer #9 See: Are the “Unsaved” Lost? I believe Yeshua’s answer to be the most astonishing thing that Christianity rejects.

Answer #10 All of the context of the above quotes precisely define the imminent timing that evades almost everyone: Isaiah 51:9-23 makes it clear.

Answer #11 To understand this topic you need to read the parallel account, the one John was alluding to: Isaiah 65 & 66 leaves no doubt. Also see New Jerusalem–A Place of Safety!

Answer #12 All of them are plural. There is a Jerusalem on the ground and a New Jerusalem that will soon rest on the mountain tops above!

Answer #13 Yehovah!

Answer #14 Zero.

Answer #15 No one in the Bible ever called themselves a Christian. Here are a bunch of supposed Bible references to the name “Christian”, but if you check, most of them are fake. The name first came into use in the city of Antioch by “outsiders”. 1 Peter 4:16 when viewed in Young’s Literal Translation and the Literal Standard Version read: “glorify [Aloha] in this respect”. They seem to be in line with Murdock’s Aramaic version: “glorify [Aloha] on account of this name”. This is why I tolerate the name well enough, but never call myself one. Besides, most Christians don’t consider me to be one of their own anyway.

Answer #16 I did a search for Yehovah's favorite numbers. I looked here and was not impressed. I expected the #1 to be the most commonly used number, then decreasing almost in direct proportion to the largeness of the number quickly before leveling off. Any anomalies would then be apparent, unless there are outliers:

The #1 most frequent number is the #1 with 16 columns in my antique Strongs Concordance, but ONLINE HERE.
#2 was next with 7 columns.
#3 was 4 columns.
#s 4 & 5 were a close next, but 5 just beat out 4.
#6 took a prejudential dip but was still a significant 1 3/4 columns.
#7 of course stood out at 4 columns-no surprise there.
#10 had 2 columns-no surprise there.
#12 had 1 1/2-no surprise there.
0 "none" had 3 columns.
#s 8 & 9 had noteworthy mention, but under a column, (inches of column).
Nothing other than #20 had 2+ columns, including the round 0 numbers (Huge anomaly). It trounced #30 at 1 inch!
#s 40 & 50 both had over 1 column-no surprise there.
#70 had half a column.
#80 Strongs only listed 3! But in fact there are 51 (I spot checked).
#19 Strongs also listed 3! In fact there are 5 (I spot checked that too) Makes me wonder about everything in Strongs, having failed both of my spot checks..
Everything else had 2 inches of column or less.
