The World Of The Bible
by Wayne Blank
The people who write are from a wide variety of backgrounds - Roman Catholics, and literally dozens of varieties of Protestant. I also hear from some of those whose knowledge and behavior have advanced to the point where they may very well be counted among the first resurrection (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17), a scattered flock who are now more scattered than ever.
Amazingly, a substantial number of people who write, who are readers of Daily Bible Study, are non-Christian, including Jews (non-religious to orthodox, from Brooklyn to Tel Aviv, from Miami to Haifa), and Muslims (present and former). Many have turned to Christianity, some because of Daily Bible Study. Even some atheists write from time to time, and a few, a very few, of them have realized that it's time to wake up!
What I have found most surprising, and I wonder now why I should have thought otherwise, is that when I just read the email, without looking at the address of the country where it came from (which doesn't always indicate it anyway, since, for example, Hotmail is used by people all over the world), I can't see any difference in the people themselves. When it comes to students of The Bible, people are people. The questions, the comments, in agreement or disagreement, are indistinguishable, whether they come from Los Angeles or London, Montreal or Moscow.
Should that be surprising? No. While in many countries of the world today there is an "us and them" perspective that, although quite justifiable in the dangerous political struggles between nations, which Prophecy warns is going to intensify in the end-time, it has no place in Christianity. As the Scriptures make plain, the Holy Spirit knows no bounds to those who are willing to truly repent and obey God, according to His Word:
"And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations." (Matthew 28:18-19 RSV)
Fact Finder: At The Return Of Jesus Christ, are Christians going to receive a new citizenship (KJV "conversation" from the original Greek word meaning citizenship), in the eternal Kingdom of God, that will rule the entire world?
