More brief is better if possible.
Many of Ray's paper were quite long with extensive proofs in order to cover all the known possible objections at the outset. I prefer explanations with the main points stated first and details provided in case the reader has ingrained myths in their mind from previous religious propaganda taught them in their youth.
Alternately a person may go through a paper and highlight pertinent passages for remedial study, which I think we all need to keep our understanding fresh.
Micha 6:8 can certainly be applied in this lifetime, but not so much during the 1000 years since we will have been given a new heart and a new nature by God that will motivate us to obey and to love fully.

Eze 36:25  Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
Eze 36:26  A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
Eze 36:27  And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

I understand, Bob.  Ray's papers aren't for everyone.  Not everyone learns the same way. But Alpine asked for detailed information, and that is why I recommended reading Ray's papers and watching his videos.

indianabob:
Hi Ralph,
Yes, Ray's papers have been a blessing to the many who study them.
I only  wanted to emphasize that in the 1000 years we will not be depending upon what we have learned in this age, God will change our stony hearts to hearts of loving obedience so that we will no longer have to struggle against our human nature.

Alpine:
Thank you all for you responses.  In  addition to spending time searching the scriptures I have for the past year diligently read Ray's papers and watched his videos.  As you all know, the more we spend our time in God's Word, even if we've read the same verse a dozen times before, something new and deeper is always revealed.   True for Ray's sharings as well. 

Another question, there is a video on YouTube where Ray states that the 1000 years is symbolic and he believes he discovered its meaning.   In my first go through of all his material, I cannot recall finding this.  Can anyone point to that information's location?

Again I am grateful for this forum.   And for all who are here and who have responded.   God is good

Alpine:
And I found a good video of Ray's  that supports all that each of you have shared.  Thank you  all so much.

There is much to be learned about Christís
reign, the eons , and the one thousand years
in the Letter to Dr Hagee.

In Christ, Pamela 💕
