Revelation 21:4

Revelation 21:4  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Before the Scofield Bible came on the scene with its dispensational theology Christian commentary readily pointed out that these conditions were true in New Jerusalem. NOT on planet earth.

Here's another passage that describes what those who were taken up into New Jerusalem experienced. These were experienced by those in New Jerusalem and NOT those left on planet earth:

Revelation 7:9  After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10  And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11  And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12  Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13  ¶And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14  And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15  Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16  They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17  For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Christians have been deceived into believing that the events of AD70 mean nothing. 

They believe the lies of the antichrists that Jesus did not return in His Kingdom, New Jerusalem, in judgment of the 12 tribes of Israel [ref. Matthew 19:28] during the disciples' generation [ref. Matthew 24:34] while some of them were still alive to witness His return in His Kingdom [ref. Matthew 16:28].

A serious Bible student should look up the origins of the Scofield Bible. And then reach some conclusions as to who Scofield was and who had primary influence on him and "his" Bible.

His Bible is nothing more than an interpretation of Scripture. And it is a wrong interpretation of Scripture. It totally contradicts the words of Jesus and His Apostles. 

If someone wishes to debate me on my claim I say bring it on.


"A day is like a thousand years to God".

But also remember that

A thousand years are like a day to God.

Don't forget the second half of that verse.

Scofield did.
