Dear Heavenly Father this world is not our home and days and weeks like today in this week are just reminders. Life is so uncertain on this planet in fact there is nothing on this planet as certain you are the only thing that is certain you are the only thing that we can trust and that gives us hope and so we just uplift the family we pray for Brent's wife Sue and for those 2 daughters that will be traveling here. I can't imagine what they are thinking and what's going through their mind in the midst of this tragedy and a host of friends and family members where we would just pray that your Holy Spirit will draw close to each and every one that they will sense your presence and know that you are with them and just guard and protect that family and help those of us even here in this room to know how we can best minister to that family how we can be your hands and feet and I pray for Brenda as well as she is lost her brother Lord we don't want to embarrass her in any way but we just want uplifter to you we care about everybody that is coming to these meetings and in this community Lord we're all human we all have hurts and more I know that even beyond those requests that have been mentioned there are many others. That are weighing heavy on many in this room and we just want to give all of those things to you tonight. And we look forward so much to the days when you will make all things new and make all people whole again. And so we just look forward so much to that day May we not take any day for granted. But may we live today to the fullest and then we choose you. Today because we have no guarantee of tomorrow in your name we pray Amen. Today we are talking about Revelations 1000 years of peace. Revelation speaks very plainly about a 1000 years and we're going to look at that tonight. Largely in detail and so I think that you're going to enjoy this study this is one that puts a lot of things in place for me in my mind oftentimes there's all kinds of things out there that are you know you're trying to figure out when this happened and that happened hopefully tonight I'm praying that it will be clear and this will put a lot of things in place for you and I hope it will make a lot of sense. We're going to start out with a story a pretty incredible story this lady was named rose and rose was in her prime in a time of this country's history that was a little bit rambunctious we call it the roaring twenty's. And there was a lot of things happening and she was not you know she was just living it up she was doing anything and everything having a good time trying all kinds of things in her body and what it would do and just party and just about every night she could bring herself back to feeling well enough to do that until all of the sudden something happened with her health and doctors were exactly sure what it was and. She ended up falling asleep and 1st her arms and various things were freezing up and and it was almost like a coma type state there for a while and back and forth and she had everybody guessing until eventually all of that seemed to subside and she just rest peacefully and she seemed to be asleep and they nobody could wake her up and time went by and more time went by more time went by and she remained in that state not just for a few weeks or a few months but years in fact go back over here to double check I want to make sure I'm accurate here I think it was 40 years. 48 long years she was asleep Can you imagine but then in 1969 Dr Oliver Sacks administered a newly developed drug and they wanted to see what this would do for Rose and remarkably Rose woke up can you imagine what it would be like to fall asleep and wake up 48 years later. I mean let's do some some math who's a math major and here you take 2016 subtract 48 years and what do we come up with you wait for me to tell you I'm waiting for you to tell me. 60 was 68 has our culture changed anything 68. Has technology changed at all since 68 what appliances were being used in 68 what it cars look like you know this was a political scene what was the world seen anybody ever go into those often times or in stores like. What's the one here on Main Street at Mass General Store and they don't have to be in those type of places only but a lot of times you'll have a spinner with all these cards and you find the year that maybe you were born or something else that tells you all the things that happened in that year and if you've ever picked one of those up I should have gone by and picked one up for 60 what you say for 8 to that's a good my memory is 68 and just listed off some of the things that happened and we'd say wow 68 sounds like a long time ago. Well she woke up 48 years later and felt very much alone can you imagine I can hardly imagine what that would be like for this lady. And today we're looking at a great awakening but our great way he's going to be a little different than this great awakening right I believe is going to have a better ending a better outcome than this great awakening when we wake up it's not going to be to a world that's changed in many ways for the worse in some ways for the better but we're going to wake up to a world. That is far better if anyone passes away before Jesus comes we're going to have a great awakening that's going to be far different than this young lady here in fact John 528 says Do not marvel at this for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear his voice and come forth you believe that I believe that those who have done good to the resurrection of life and those who have done evil to the resurrection of condemnation now notice there's 2 resurrections I would submit to you that they don't happen at the same time there's a resurrection of good and a resurrection for those that have been evil and they happen at different periods of time how do I know that the Bible says so we're going to keep looking at death. Sometimes these slides trying to read my mind the resurrection of life in the resurrection of condemnation which resurrection do you want to be part of. Life. Give us life. I want to be part of the resurrection of condemnation to anybody like to be condemned Oh my I don't think so so that's the one we want to be part of what happens to all those to all that have believed in Jesus as we're going to look at 1st because I think that's the one that we're more interested in and. We're going to look at the other one too because it has to do with how sin is done away with but this is the resurrection of life the one I want to be part of we oftentimes call this the 2nd coming this is a young lady who has cancer and when she passes away the next thing that she's going to see. Is Jesus coming next thing she's going to see and we talked a few nights ago if you missed we talked about what happens when you die and if you missed that one grab a CD grab a study guide it's rather fascinating what the Bible has to say I believe is quite different than what the world talks about sings about all kinds of things but the next thing she sees she's going to fall asleep in the next person she sees if she loves the Lord and claims the Lord as her lord and savior she'll see Jesus coming in the clouds 1st as lonely as for 16 We've looked at this for the Lord himself on the sand from heaven with a shout with the voice of an archangel and with a trumpet of God are we going to miss it are going to sleep through it are we going to be organizing our basement doing spring cleaning that day and all of a sudden oh what happened. We're going to notice if you've ever been working outside in the yard or you know you had been the Are You could be inside the house then but he had somebody fly by or your house really low I mean really low I mean there's been some flybys in the news recently and some of these Maybe you've seen some of that some of our ships and they say these Russian planes have been doing these super low I mean it just shakes the whole house you think a bomb has gone off literally a member of the place we lived before in the middle of the night. This plane and maybe they'd be this was just a nightmare but I'm I'm quite convinced that there was a plane because sometimes they would do is them Blairsville Georgia and sometimes they do some training around those mountains and this was some time in the middle the night and this plane I think was so low it just buzz right over our house and had been a jet because it just hit I mean there wasn't even any I didn't even do the sound right it was just. And it was so loud I mean it just. Boom it felt like a bomb I thought a bomb had gone off and that was it that was it I have you know a 10th of a 2nd to realize I'm dinosaur it's all I had and I woke up and I remember going outside to try and listen for that part of the plane that. You know in time out of nothing now maybe I was losing my mind I don't know. But I know that if that was a for real thing it would probably feel something like what I describe We're not going to miss it this is going to be such a big event such a big deal we're not going to miss it to finish the verse and the dead in Christ and so here we have the Lord descending with a heaven with a shout the voice the Archangel the trumpet of God and it says and the dead in Christ will rise 1st so there's 2 resurrections who's who or which group of people will rise 1st the dead in Christ as the Bible says rise 1st so the 1st resurrection is the one you want to be part of not the 2nd resurrection into non for the Lord himself of the sin didn't we just read I pressed the wrong button I'm sorry continue on then we who are alive and remain to be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air beautiful verse I love this verse such a beautiful picture and thus we shall always be with the Lord Revelation chapter 20 verse 6 it says blessed and holy as he was part in the 1st resurrection to that I would say Amen that's the resurrection I want to be part of his resurrection of life and I promise yes when you want to be part of as well right. Now what happens if I'm still alive while the verse talks about that we're going to be caught up with those that are raised to life and those kinds of things but even still I want to be one of those caught up or raised up either way blessed and holy he is part of the 1st resurrection and here we have some pictures of some of that. Day and what that be like. Heaven is going to be a place of incredible love love will fill our hearts and our love needs will be met there are so many books in fact if you want to make a lot of money write a book on relationships and you notice that I mean they're just they come out all the time all the time all the time all the time. Married relationships and how to get this and how to get that and how to be this and how to be that His Needs Her Needs love cups making deposits and then withdraws and are you making more deposits or more withdraws and that's imbalance and on and on and goes your love needs will be met I believe in a way that we they probably never been met or can be met on this earth and that will be Heaven and God will do that I mean just taking selfishness out of the equation is going to help all of our relationships a 1000 percent right. So let's look at some a vent to Christ come in let's put him up on the can I say board is that too old school believers will be resurrected. Believers receive immortality we looked at that the other day as well but this verse reminded us again. And I think we're going to add to that list but that's all we have on the list right now what happens to all that have rejected Jesus who I would submit that you don't want to be part of that group well how come is that because God's going to be angry he's going to be mad he's going to be vengeful come back tomorrow night on tell you all about that. I would say no navy you want to hear more than just a no Revelation says there's 2 groups the save and the Lost I want a part of the say that I want to be this guy that guy looks like he's in good shape he doesn't look like he's in good shape and the kings of the earth and the great men the rich men the commanders the mighty men every slave and every free man that pretty much covers I don't want to say everybody but look at all the influential people the great the rich the commanders the mighty men the respected the people on Fortune 500 men you know whatever it is people that you would think would know. We live in a time where if you graduate from Harvard Well you must be right and I must be wrong. If you have the have you let out in this company if you've been a president here you've done this and so we have all these influential people including every slave and every free man hid themselves in the cave in the rocks of the mountains and said the mountains and rocks fall on us and hide us from the face of him and sits on the throne and when the wrath of the Lambs we talked about that briefly in terms of the cop that comes up behind you with the lights and if you're going a 100 miles an hour this is how you feel scared to death I think I'm going to die. I can't breathe hardly at all kinds of stuff none of you know what that's like right to be pulled over having gone time tell you a random story I shouldn't tell you a story. It doesn't have anything to do with anything we're talking about this has to do with being pulled over after go on and on earning 30 miles an hour some I don't know too fast I wasn't driving by the way I just I but I still thought I was going to die no. No Was Elizabeth and it wasn't Elizabeth. But when we went to the hospital with our 1st child it was in the middle of the night and he said turn the flashers on I said Honey there's nobody on the road there's nobody out here she says I had in my mind when I was going to go to hospital to deliver my baby never flashers turn of lashes on said yes might put those on. All right says with a great day of His wrath to come and who is able to stand we were backpacking I'll tell you the story we were backpacking and we had to be back for them school function we were in high school and my brother was driving and we were in a nice Acura legend and we were on these back roads going through Tennessee through the town of Benton if anybody knows where Ben is never speed to Benton you know that don't you you know there's cops everywhere and been well we were it was early early early I mean we had to be at the car I think at 5 so we could drive a couple hours to be back at the school for a function of having a 9 or 10 on remember and there's a long straight stretches of nothing and nobody And so being teenage We had a stupid idea to see how fast Acura legend could go on the straight stretches and you know I got a little bit ways and little bit more on the next one and they contain to be this old Ford Ranger behind us. And what is this old Ford ramming it wasn't a new it was the old Ford Ranger and you know being teenagers in the Acura legend Come on let's lose. Next railway we don't lose them and we. And of course here is this this Ford trying to keep up with us we're like What in the world is going on we do this several times till eventually come to the town of Benton and we're trying to go through Ben and of course when you've been driving on a 100 maybe 110 or 15 I think that's what it was or wasn't too fast right. When the speed limit drops from 55 down to 45 I mean 45 feels like you're going about 15 if you've been speeding that test and so we thought we were slowing down I say we use my brother he was the one I was I didn't do anything wrong I'm innocent. We thought we were going slow we're still going 20 over and he whipped up behind us and there wasn't just one cop but there was about 4 or 5 cops that came out it was a blue light special. You want to know why it was a blue light special the guy in the Ford Ranger just happened to be an off duty cop. And then we all had our I don't know $4050.00 pound backpack there were 4 of us they were all in the trunk and so this Acura legend looks like it's like this which means we're doing what Hollander. I thought we were going to die I thought we were going to die we're going to go to prison I was never going to see the light of day again that's how these people are going to feel now we would have been poking along the whole time would we have been nervous no face is getting red just thinking about it same event totally different feeling and this is how they feel right here that Ford Ranger was on their tail to. 2nd testimony is 179 to give you who are troubled rest with when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his my angels in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ these shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power if God's going to destroy sin once and for all he's got to destroy Sen right and again that's our topic for tomorrow night so if you're curious about that and about this word everlasting destruction come tomorrow night we're going to talk more about it tomorrow night but he's going to make an end of sin he has to give us a way of escape as he's done at the up and he has to say come on you don't want to be stuck in that sand your whole lives get out of there well it makes me happy no it doesn't it's trying to kill you it's trying to eat away it's your life and your health and you're all kinds of things right and he says No come on out of that. Some people say Oh God doesn't really give us a choice no he does give us a choice he gives all kind of choices like going down on the Titanic and there's a lifeboat there and you don't want to get in the lifeboat and you say come on there's room in the lifeboat and you say no no no no what if you don't get the lifeboat you're going to die you give me a choice this is DA doesn't make any sense right the wages of sin is death the effects of sin ultimately are always death what is the devil want for you and me death sin when it goes full course in death. And so after warning after warning after warning. There's an everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord from the glory of His power and then the lawless one will be revealed when the Lord will consume with the breath of his mouth and destroy with the brightness of his coming so I have rejected God If I've said get out of my life I don't want anything to do with you leave me alone and then he comes in the sky one I'm going to be scared to death because all along I thought well if I could just believe that God doesn't exist and I'll be OK. I messed up on that one God does exist it's pretty plain this is something supernatural here and they're asking for the rock to fall on them and eventually the brightness of His coming God and sin cannot co-exist they just can't it's almost as if sin is flammable gasoline or something I don't know. And so we had to be purged from our sin and Jesus Christ is the only one that can do that he want to give us pardon and you and give us power to overcome sent our lives so. Let's go back to our list believers resurrected believers receive immortality in the wicked living are consumed OK so if I reject God and die now like right now lighting strikes and I'm going to see Jesus come at the 2nd. I'm going to miss it yeah well Mrs I'm going to keep on sleep and if I reject God and he comes tonight or tomorrow or whenever what's going to happen to me I'll be destroyed by the brightness of His coming right. And we are you talking about is the Ricky dead remain in their graves. John 41 says Let not your heart be troubled you believe in God believe also in me that's the whole point that's the key right here in my Father's house are many mansions if it were not so I would have told you I go to prepare a place for you and I will come again and receive you to Myself that where I am there you may be also That's what God wants for us is not the believers ascend to Heaven with Christ. And now we're going look at some questions that Christians oftentimes ask what happens after Christ comes when we go to heaven you know I know but what happens let's look at that what is the condition of the earth another good question I'm glad you asked and lastly what happened to Satan who do you want to know what happens to saying I tell you Satan's a jerk not just a little bit he's a jerk when you think about the most heinous crimes on the planet I don't know what you put in that category but for me when you put children and prostitution together that's right up at the top for me right at the top you want to get me angry and upset. For the Devils more than just a jerk you understand that I mean he is the epitome of jerk because he's behind and pushing and pushing and pushing all of those things and he's he's laughing when they happen and excited and that just fuels him and he's he's a mess I don't know it's going to happen the devil is going to be around forever when is he going to get his due because stop and think every one of our sins he has some responsibility for doesn't because he was right there all along don't you want to do this come along don't you want to cover you up which more times when we're done when is Satan get his due and talk about death and then when does God make the Earth new I want to know that too do you want to know that. Is there anyone alive on earth during the 1000 years that's another fair question so let's look at Revelation chapter 20 verse one most of these are going to come out of chapter 21 we're talking about this 1000 year period is right here in Revelation the rest of Bible supports it but the bulk of it comes right here and then I saw an angel coming down from heaven having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand he lay hold of the dragon that serpent of old who is the devil and Satan and balance him for a 1000 years now has a literal chain this is a literal pit let's look at that the word millennium 1st of all is not used in the Bible it comes from 2 Latin words military and any a meaning 1000 years but it talks about the 1000 years so when we say millennium it means a 1000 years Konstam idea the Trinity we don't have training in the Bible anywhere either but it talks all the time about the Father the Son the Holy Ghost the Holy Spirit we have the Creation we have in Revelation we have it in the gospels we have the baptism it's just it's everywhere OK but you don't find the word Trinity but that's OK. The bottomless pit the word for that is Abu sauce which means business which really takes us back the wording takes all the way back to Genesis when it talks about before God created it says without form and void so really in the Book of Revelation we not we don't really have creation we have creation in reverse everything starts to unravel and fall apart and disintegrate and kill eventually by the time God comes at the very last when we think all hope is lost and no one's going to be able to save us God rescues us right and people say this is our God We waited for him he will save us. It's at that point that the earth is virtually desolate it's a mess you've seen pictures of this on the news or maybe even in a place there was a tornado that hit Cherokee Valley Road near the where I grew up and I remember driving through that after this tornado and it looked like I was driving through the news you know I mean when I say that I mean it was just a mess everything everywhere was a mess ripped apart verge I think that's how the world going to look ripped apart burned you know craters I don't know what all but it's going to be just a total mess. Here we have just as one to the earth was without form and void same idea of who saw us same word so what are these chains that bind Satan it's a fair question 2nd Peter 2 for 4 of God did not spare the angels who stand by cast them down to hell and delivered them into the chains of darkness to be reserved for judgment I would submit to you these change or change of circumstances he's down here on the earth with nobody to tempt nothing to do the world is a total mess and he just has to sit there and wait and think about what he's done your parents ever do then you know you're in trouble when they use your middle name David Nicholas right go to your room I'll be up there and a little bit whoa can we just do that to your room right I want you to think about what you've done. Boy thinking about what I did think it was Mark and I'm thinking I'm going to get spanked if there was going to be sitting here on this earth thinking what he's done can a 1000 years to sit and to think before there's any judgments taken place on him we're going to talk about why you're in a mess so there we have him just in a messed up cluttered broken down world. Reminds us of the Garden of Eden you will not surely die and that's where this whole thing I mean there was war in heaven but then that's how we got involved as he went down the tempted. And we got sucked into this whole thing and it's a same question and we trust God as he fares he just is the true and I trust him and the whole universe has been watching ever since the angels and so on and so forth so everything God does is to ensure the security of the universe for eternity that's really the big question here how do you get rid of sin once and for all so it won't rise up a 2nd time how do you do that well for one you have to answer every question in anybody's mind you have to answer it because if I have a question in my mind I'm just really not so sure that takes us right back to where we were in the 1st place I don't know can I trust God is he fair is he just you I'm just I really don't know if you have to answer every question. About the judgment in terms of us was a judgment terms of god did he judge fear in your case in your case in your case in your case and in my case because all it takes is one case that they didn't judge fair or God didn't judge fair also and you could say ah ah well I judge and all the other billions of people all right yes but you made an exception here you're busted looking for we have to answer all these questions God is love and I believe God is worthy to be trusted and that's why I love tonight presentation we need to keep going the cross certainly was a huge piece and can we trust God huge piece here he does something and the whole universe and the angels and everybody are just waiting God can I go can I rescue him can I can I knock them all back and kill him one and say Jesus and bring him back to he says no we're just going to sit and wait we're going to watch we'll let this play out. Can you imagine I imagine that if it was me and you know I can watch as they were doing this to Jesus who is the epitome of love of selflessness of giving of you know and on and on and on and they nail him to a cross that was a huge piece but now we get to this other piece of the 1000 years the wages of sin is death we know that is there anyone alive on earth during the millennium we more or less already answered that but we have another verse here and you're my for $23.00 I beheld the Earth and indeed it was without form and void same idea and the heavens they had no light I beheld the mountains and indeed they trembled and all the hills moved back and forth I beheld and indeed there was no man and all the birds of the heavens had fled I beheld and indeed the fruitful land was a wilderness and all its cities were broken down at the presence of the Lord did you catch that part by his fierce anger for the says the Lord the whole land shall be desolate yet I will not make a full end that mean I will make a full in. There's more to come a full and would be permanent right the absolute but he says I'm not done yet this will be a full and why why how long are we going to let sin just continue to hang around how long the devil going to continue that hang around we need to just do away with this while I think God has a very valid reason to continue in Jeremiah 2533 and at that day the slain of the Lord shall be from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth they shall not be lamented or gathered or buried they shall become rescues on the ground can you imagine and maybe you don't want to that's a pretty grim picture of what it's like here on this earth after Jesus takes his children home. And I get the devil has no regard for you he's not going to bury you are you kidding you're just left there in heaps and piles and anyway that's not going to be you forgive me people that reject God. The devil is left with nobody to 10 Love brings life selfishness brings death is that a true statement I think it is and it absolutely is when Hitler got on his rampage was that because of love for mankind or because of sin and selfishness. And hate for other people and wanting to build up his own empire and on and on what are God's people doing during the 1000 years and this is an interesting thing it says back in Revelation chapter 20 where it talks about the 1000 years blasted unholy as it is he who is part in the 1st resurrection a man over says the 2nd death has no power 2nd death what the 2nd death well if I die here on this planet which death is death 1st unless you die before you don't remember but only guess a case as a 1st death and then we're going to talk about a time where even those that curse God and die aren't done yet they're only part of the 2nd resurrection the one we don't want to part of they sleep through the 2nd coming of Jesus they sleep through the 1000 years but then they're part of the 2nd resurrection but there's also a 2nd death why why all this stuff we're about to see why. Over such a 2nd death has no power but they shall be priests of God is talking about the right just now up in heaven they will be priests of God and of Christ and shall reign with him a 1000 years and I saw throne and they sat on them and judgment was committed to them of all things to us judgment committed to us to meet to you what are we going to be judging. And it says and books were opened so here's the idea of a book because it can be a literal book I don't know it's going to be a movie screen I don't know to come in i Pad I don't know but the idea is there's going to be no secrets the books are open and what are we judging while we're judging is God fair just and true in how he judges in every case let's suppose some horrible crime is done to you as a child and let's suppose you get up in heaven and whole there's that person I have a problem with this and you go to God secretary to the secretary and say I need an appointment I'm rather upset why you have said well I saw somebody here you can be here oh OK I can fit you and oh now perfect and you want to know why is this person here and you better not take too long because you're somebody behind you that they're looking for Grandma Grandma was the most godly person you could have ever known you know you get the idea right but grandma is not there I need an appointment 2 years we need to talk Gran was not here how come now let's suppose God says I'm God you're a tiny little ant thing called a human I'm in charge you're not I'm in control you're not I'm all powerful you're not I'm omnipresent you're not I'm all wise you're not so trust me I'm fair I'm just I'm true and all right you're in line I'm I'm just I'm trying to get out of line I know who's supposed to be here leave me alone is that the picture. Not at all not at all and if that was the picture what would be in your thinking I saw it on your faces even now it was almost like well I don't like this I feel uncomfortable with this this isn't the God I serve absolutely right that's not the God you serve we serve a God where all the books are opened he's willing to be audited I need a book and so you have all your secrets how you had a sister growing up and she had a book a journal or something right and she'd sit down and she'd write all her secrets and it was OK because he had a lock and she put the key someplace and use a brother what do you want to do. You want is the in the book you want all the secrets you tell. Me This is a book that has all the records of you and of me and more importantly how God has done everything in his power to woo this person or how God respecting this person's freedom of choice to say I don't have anything to do with you and so God doesn't hide anything he says OK if you have a question look in the book it's all right there and if you have any questions I'll be happy to answer them but they're all right here and so you read and you study your wondering how calm right and all the sudden you start to cry you start to weep or I don't know what's going to respond to that but it becomes very clear and at the end of reading that little section on that person you say wow god you're fair you're just you're true you rule right in this case again I have a question about this one OK so you go there and eventually you look at enough cases that you say you know what God's fair what does that say about God It tells me that he can be trusted that he has absolutely nothing to hide. And any question that you have about anything that's happened on this earth will answer it God why did you let my mom get cancer why did you allow this guy to die on his bike tonight he woke up like the rest of us he had his breakfast and whatever else probably read his Bible had prayers pry had no idea that was the last Perry is going to pray in my view and pray for them on their bike I don't know God Why do you let that happen how is that a god of love and he shows you he shows you and he answers every question that you have that's a God I can trust that's a God I can put my life in his hands because it shows me he has my best interests at heart and he says we're not going to rush this we're not just going to take a weekend oh we'll take a long week now we're going to take a 1000 years and you're going to be able to look at any and every case that you want to every question is answered in your mind and here's the other thing nobody's destroyed once and for all intil it's clear in everybody's mind is that important just in case you think God made a mistake he says that's OK if we could reverse it's this god make mistakes no but he says for you I'm extra patient for you in fact I'm going to be patient a whole 1000 years so it's clear in everybody's mind and then we're going to do this thing once and for all and send will be destroyed forever and I talked about touching an iron in your hand in the ring member that and you might be dumb enough I shouldn't use words like. You might be naive enough to put your hand on that thing because somebody dares you and everybody says it's going to be OK and you will not surely die whatever lie they tell you and you put your hand on there and. You pull it off and there's the ring and for the rest your life you have this ring on your hand. Well Seppo Nessun. Ever again when you put your hand on a red hot stove this is the thing that looks about this no not touching it in fact you're going to do like this and so if anybody ever gets an inkling like Lucifer did the 1st time in heaven I'm not sure Jesus is fair just and true are you serious do you have amnesia Have you forgotten what we went through and you got what Jesus went through come over here let's let's let's have some conversations let's go watch some videos let's go see Jesus and let's let you feel his hands let's you know I don't even think that conversation will happen but if it does everyone will say very quickly you've got to be kidding since not going to rise up a 2nd time because every question's going to be answered we're going to in trouble I'm supposed to go into slides OK. First Corinthians 62 do you not know that the Saints will judge the world do you not know that we shall judge angels. I even think that during that 1000 years we're going to be able to see how God labor along with Lucifer how he labored with all those angels how he did everything that he could to try to convince them and how he gave in every opportunity but he's not going to force what kind of a choice is that well God is Life anything outside of life is death or God is death Alternately I even think we're the evil in this world are still continuing to live and be able to carry out their evil even because God has grace on them and might open up another can of worms too but anyway I mean to me anyway 1st Christians for verse 5 therefore judge nothing before the diamond of the Lord comes who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of their hearts then each one's praise will come from God. We can look at people's heart right now we can judge the outward appearance in fact the Bible tells us to do that when people are caught in sin response to go to them and try to bring them out of that but we don't know somebody's heart you can do the right things for the wrong reasons entirely kanji we do it all too often but we're going be able to see the intense of of individual hearts and at the end of it all will praise God for it so during the millennium God will answer how many questions every question how you have a question for God Yeah I do too and God doesn't say just stuff it he says we're going to get to your question and answer your question that's good news to me every question about is justice and love will be fully answered. So events during the millennium the righteous are in heaven the wicked remain dead Satan and his angels are bound on earth with nothing to do the earth remains desolate and then what events happen after the millennium and all my years where Satan gets his the wicked dead are resurrected as a 2nd resurrection we're going to look at a verse for that Revelation 20 verse 5 but the rest of the dead did not live again until the 1000 years were finished so you have one side of 1000 years all things that happen then you have this millennium or a 1000 years what we're doing in heaven we're judging and then now we're at the other end I used to the backwards for you didn't you understand I should be going this way for you sorry. Reza dad did not live until after the 1000 years and here is why do you have life on this side then you have the resurrection of damnation ovation 20 verse 8 numbers the sand of the sea which is said to me now in the 1000 years have expired Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the 4 corners of the earth and then Revelation $21.00 verse 2 says and I John saw the holy city New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God prepared as a bride adorned for her husband and that's when the New Jerusalem going to be set up on this earth the embarrassment of the entire not just universe but beyond it's going to be the center of the universe when God puts the city right here at the end of the millennium and then 20 verse 11 and I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it for mus face the earth and the heaven fled away and there was found no place for them and I saw the dead small and great standing before God and books were open if I cursed God In die I will raise up in that 2nd resurrection of damnation but before I am destroyed and before all of sin is destroyed it will be plain to me and my questions will be answered I will see all the times that I had an opportunity to choose Jesus when I had an opportunity to follow him when he was calling after me and I had every opportunity to do it and I rejected I pushed him away and that's when every knee will bow and every tongue will confess even the devil himself and all the evil angels will bow and say God you are fair you're just your true but doesn't last. They still say but we hate you we hate you they're so bent on evil you think when the devil is doing his most heinous crimes around this planet and in this county does he have any regard for what's fair just true 0. God you're fair you're just you're true but I still want you dead. Another book was opened which is the Book of Life from the dead the dead were judged according to their works by the things which were written in the books Philippians 21011 says that the name of Jesus every knee should bow of those in heaven and on of those on the earth and of those under the earth that little phrase I'm not going to get into tonight but really is talking about the demons and angels the evil angels and all these things so you have all these people here. Those in heaven and those on Earth and those under the earth that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father they're going to declare it's going to be obvious to everyone but then God does his strange act Revelation 20 verse 9 tries to rally the troops one more time they don't want it they've never wanted it they rejected it is not that they ended up there on accident no they end up there on purpose they didn't want to and they went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city and we're going to be hold as we're going to be in the city we're only looking down and we're going to be trying to get everything together they're going to try and crank up everything they can find and they're going to fire at this city and try and destroy the city and fire comes down from God out of heaven and devours them after it's plain in everyone's mind after every question has been answered after off off of everybody's tongue they say God you're fair you're just your true sin is destroyed once and for all and I magine you'll be a time of very solemn. Silence it will be done in God's wisdom this little thing start in the garden not going to be in the start of heaven this little tiny thing says I'm going to let it run its course. I could try and just nip it in the butt but I wouldn't do away with it and it would just cause more questions and all the rest and I would be going against my character of truth and all the rest and he says I just have to let it run its course and eventually it will be plain to everyone that the devil hates to know wants you dead but I love you and have something far better for you after a late run this whole course of sin is eventually extinguished once and for all for all done and that good news. Name in but the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise and elements will melt with fervent heat both the Earth and the works that are in it will be burned up there's something about fire that just yes it consumes but it changes things so completely You can't put them back you want to make a statement you go on You Tube and you light some on fire because it purifies if I let you go the dentist office or wherever else they put them in or extreme heat in a purifies or right and so the whole planet's going to go through this major purification process everything's going to be consumed all the pornographic videos are going to be consumed all of the little toys that were evil are going to be consumed all the people that were filled with sand and hatred towards God are going to be consumed and the devil's going to be consumed once and for all and you can't bring it back you can't blow on the ashes and bring it back it's gone it's gone gone be burned up and that new through some is going to descend and it's going to settle right here on planet earth and he's going to recreate it as it once was you think the Blue Ridge Parkway is beautiful you ain't seen nothing yet you think Switzerland's beautiful. You think the mountains and 1000 Americans are beautiful you think deserts in the cactus are beautiful you think the ocean is beautiful you think scuba diving is beautiful you think the coral reefs and you know on and on and on and on and on it goes you think that's beautiful. Thing it it's all tainted with sin God gives us little glimmers But I tell you when we see the real deal we're no longer going to be satisfied with a glimmer Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth for the 1st heaven in the 1st earth had passed away also there was no more sea and I heard a loud voice from heaven saying Behold the tabernacle of God is with men that's what he wanted all along he wanted to well his people so much so he's willing to go this whole long drama as long as he can get people that he can love and that will love him in return not forced but because they choose Him That's the definition of love and we're going to have such a marvelous and wonderful time and he will dwell with them and they shall be his people and God himself will be with them and be their God That's going to be wonderful that's going to be wonderful and no matter what we're going through now in this tiny little speck on the timeline of eternity is going to be nothing on that day and you give me nothing on the next day the next day and on for another trillion years we're going to look back and we're going to remember just enough to know I don't ever want to go back there and so whatever you're going through today keep the big context in mind God has a bigger plan he's going to be the victor and if you're on his side you'll be the victor I long with him I like to be on the winning team don't you do you have any father we're just going to pray a very simple prayer we have seen tonight yet again how you are so transparent how you have nothing to hide. That you love us that you care for us and that you are making every effort to draw us to you to give us life and to give it to us more abundantly not just in a heavenly existence but even here and now yes even here waltz in exists and bad things happen to good people but someday you'll make all those things right and Lord when that day comes that you come in the clouds we want to be part of the 1st resurrection we want to be caught up with those in the air for living and I believe in so soon many here will be alive on that day we will be caught up with our loved ones and we will live with you for eternity Lord if that's what people here want and we just raise our hands right now and say Lord I want to be part of that 1st resurrection I want to be there I want to be found faithful to you not in me I have nothing to do bring to the table except that I want to surrender. To you that you will have your way. That you will forgive us of our sins and empower us to live for you as our prayer and use.
