worksheet number eleven the day the devil by now this is good to be one of those topics with perhaps expand on some thinking to you might've already had to put some concrete book in on this whole great controversy between good and evil between God and his enemy between Christ and Satan the day the devil dies if you've noticed he's been cast out of heaven but still hasn't died yet billions upon billions of other people of God but he gives anything on the question could be at when will he finally CNN that overgrown address tonight the Deva but before we get started let's begin with the word for heavily father thank you so much for all the many blessings and lords we study this particular topic you want to understand the Devils in the Lord help us to learn practical lessons from it help us by all means let's be a part of his Asian butt to go home with Jesus in the variant portrayed in Jesus name a the David Devil dies let's begin at Luke chapter ten of three page ten zero five in your pew Bible Luke chapter ten Jesus is here having an interesting encounter with his disciples in fact a bigger group of his disciples the seventy were sent out and they were supposed to do the same type of ministry that Jesus was doing healing the sick preaching the new good news the gospel to the poor and notice in verse seventeen what we were what's recorded in Luke chapter ten when they return to Jesus all very excited that the real for all the things they've seen the power of Jesus name happen in their ministry is September seventeenth the seventy returned in what state with what joy saying Lord even the demons are subject to us in your name I don't know that her Jesus feeling to think that they were surprised but they like you won't believe it even then the men's open a in your name and knows what Jesus says in verse eighteen and he said to them I saw Satan fall like what lightning from where have know we studied the fall of Satan the casting out that war in heaven that war of words and not weapons that great conflict in the universe where Christ cast Satan out but did not blot them out of existence he was cast to the earth in Jesus you says I saw Satan fall like lightning in the picture that I always had in my mind was that Satan fell and he was stripped out of earshot and lightning was a metaphor for speed quickness which RadioShack government that but I wanted to demonstrate from the Bible but in this instance I don't believe Jesus is speaking about quickness or speed to talk about the casting out with the fall of Satan in fact Jesus uses the lightning from heaven metaphor for some other event in fact one we just look at last night the back of Matthew chapter twenty seven enzymatic twenty four verse twenty seven the three page nine six one in your pew Bible Matthew twenty four verse twenty seven Jesus speaks of his own return and of course his return is coming from heaven right any the metaphor of a lightning Matthew twenty four verse twenty seven for as lightning comes from the east and flashes to the West so also will the coming of the Son of Man be but why does he say that with this look at the previous verse again we studied his last feeding the verse twenty six therefore if they say to you speak of the coming of Christ Loki is in the desert do not go out right Michael you don't see them here but he's over there don't know what or look used in the inner rooms even in a secret kind of spiritual way has returned none none no don't believe the enemies as for as lightning comes from the east and flashes of the West so also the coming of the Son of Man be what does Jesus mean when he says his coming will be from heaven like lightening bohemians it will be visible from East to West shines across the whole sky know the methods and he also employs lightning as we just saw about the fall of Satan and obviously it wasn't quick it's been six thousand years right surely you doesn't mean I thought Fox because they didn't fall like that from heaven he involved from the heights of glory in heaven to the depth of the grave in one fell through instantly know it wasn't quick like lightning but apparently will be visible like lightning the whole universe will see for themselves so did the lightning isn't a metaphor you we are in a film of blank is not a metaphor for speed but for visibility if you recall about what was his go back these he gives up a twenty eight when Satan was originally cast from heaven as the page eight thirty one in your pew Bible when Satan was originally cast from heaven notice the reason given is so that everyone could see him Ezekiel chapter twenty eight with over seventeen your heart was lifted up because of your beauty you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor I cast you to the ground as the casting out of adding all right I cast to the ground I laid you before games for what purpose that made my what that word gaze at you what is it mean to gaze look to see to watch they could see for themselves that they might gaze that you again it goes on for just continues in verse eighteen you defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude by the multitude of your iniquity by the iniquity of your trading therefore I brought fire from your midst it devoured you and I turned you to ashes of the site upon the earth in the sight of all this all you why first nineteen all who knew you among the peoples are astonished that you you have become a horror and shall be no more for ever noticed that he was cast out of heaven he currently is a horror and someday will be no more forever you notice the process language that it was cast out but not blotted out so that everyone can have an opportunity to see begin of Satan so that the final analysis all verse nineteen who knew you among the peoples everyone whatever anything to do with you our astonishment at the very final analysis Satan will have zero sympathizers in the universe no one will say it is pretty good I work at his ideas are worth a shot or maybe maybe killing and too harsh I don't know no one could have any sympathy for him left all of the new human peoples are astonished at you even become a bore and shall be no more forever there is a day when the devil will die but were living in a time when that has not occurred yet so why is that let's outlined what this fall from heaven is all about go back to Revelation chapter twelve the four steps of Satan 's fall I would like to demonstrate from Scripture page eleven eighty two by the way Revelation chapter twelve would like to demonstrate from Scripture that Satan 's again his fall from heaven was not from the height of glory to the depth of the graven one shot short but actually it takes for stings steps eight there are four different play with that little metal coil toy was a thing called thank you and what's the one good thing this link you can do if you go down the stairs once you twist nothing about a way to use is no more point but it is one really cool trick a set of staircase at the very top and you just given a little shove right you don't have to go down a shopping step it just keeps going on its own right the original pushing it over triggers the chain of events that finally gets it all the way to the bottom and interested in what the go down the stairs right use this imagery as we look at the following text and you'll see that Satan 's fall is not one big shot off a cabin of a cliff but is actually a sequence of steps down the stairs to be in you understand the analogies of Mark that was watching overlap with Scripture relationship with well start over seven were to look at the first casting out the original pushed on the stairs and war broke out where it have and finally Jesus said I thought they can fall like lightning from where from heaven like to start the debit is the first step in war broke out in heaven Michael and his angels fought with the Dragon the Dragon and his angels fought but they did not prevail nor was the place found for them in heaven any longer you can imagine he is like the slinky being kicked by a place with no longer program so it continues reading Silverstein the great dragon was cast out serpent of old called the Devil and Satan who deceives the whole world he was after the earth and his angels were cast out with him that's the original step one testing out of state but obviously he wasn't blotted out of existence as I say anything is that the Lord wants everyone to see this fall so we go on a Revelation chapter twelve verse ten by the way all four steps are right here in order and Revelation chapter twelve we've already stated before Revelation twelve brings them all together in one then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven now salvation and strength in the kingdom of our God and the power of his Christ have come for the accuser of our brethren who accused them before our God day and night has been cast down and we still earlier that this member Jesus Christ came to the earth himself beneath it now the ruler of this world will be cast out he was speaking about his death on the cross right when before all those people who knew him in heaven Hughes character was clearly revealed as the murderer Jesus had known he was all alone right now violence who was within was finally unleashed on Jesus and in one act they saw this as the character of God who would give himself versus the character Satan would take everything for himself even the life of God the second phase testing out of state and across the butt of the cross he still was not blotted out why is that while users mortgage is simply the destruction of Satan Jesus had in mind praise the Lord the cause if all he needed to do was demonstrate to those who had known Satan that he was worthy of a death sentence he could've accomplished it the moment Jesus died Satan could've died right along with right lucky kill the innocent son of God whatever evidence do you need but praise the Lord his plan is not simply call the plan of destruction it's called the plan of salvation the plan of redemption he wants to do more than simply destroy Satan yet she wants to save sinners which is good news for us by the way Revelation chapter twelve eleven intimates this step and say overcame him by what the blood of the land and the word of their testimony and they did not love their lives to the death six phase three is those who accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior did the same thing the unfallen beings it taken out of their sympathies no longer I we don't care about it were going to overcome him by the blood of the lamb we see would Jesus do we accept his sacrifice on our behalf and we are overcome with along with Christ powerful thought and noticed that Satan 's influence in the universe is quibbling down suitably if the original estate in his original establishment in heaven is called called Lucifer son of the morning he was the covering cherub I got established and he was an ordained minister of God right they are the very presence of the father and his his influence was universe but when he was cast out of heaven only a third of the Angel with them you can read that revelation seven as well through the Angels with it his influence was whittled down his calf failure the only earth while now but now there are people who are going to follow Jesus instead of Satan and there to cast another sympathies to his influences whittled down until there's one final step in what's amazing about this step it it probably doesn't take place when you think it should explain what any so now the state has been cast out of heaven I would got the God see-through his shenanigans all the time course is like you can on the first place God thought it is hard to begin with right but he needed other people to see so all those who knew him in heaven you there just to see that the cross now we who he died for can see the contrast in our lives we can choose this day whom we will serve a casting out of our hearts and apologies of and we can overcome him by the blood of the Lamb so now why not destroy him now well let's take a look relationship in nineteen relationship in nineteen once I was it was finished by the privilege of twelve he didn't finish up reports that there after it says in verse eleven and they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony they did not love their lives to the death of these are people who could lay down their lives if necessary and faithfulness to God by overcoming that the demonstrated overcoming of Satan now verse twelve therefore rejoice O heavens and you dwell in them but woe to the inhabitants of your lessee for the devil has come down to you having great wrath because he knows what's happening in that he has a short time he knows his time is short his days are numbered his time is running out he understands this but there is a stage for when you could be completely eliminated Revelation nineteen relationship in nineteen starting with verse eleven we get a picture of the second coming of Jesus now last night we talked about the return of the King this can be visible and literal and audible and global every eye will see if the dead in Christ will rise first but the wicked will be destroyed by the brightness of his coming this could be two groups the sheep and the goats the right and the left of the week and the tears summer to go to the barn go to the burn was very very clear day in Revelation chapter nineteen gives a very graphic description of the second coming event verse eleven now I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse and he sat on his outing was called faithful and true and in righteousness he judges and makes war his eyes were like a flame of fire his head were many crowns he had a name written on him that no one knew except himself he was clothed with a robe dipped in blood his name is called the Word of God by the way who wrote the book of Revelation John how did he open up his Gospel in the beginning was the word write the word of God who is as the word of God whose name is the word about who we talking Jesus Christ right time at the coming of Jesus and the armies of heaven clothed in fine linen white and clean followed him on white horses and of course as a consequence of clouds it comes with all of his angel most of their coming with them not as a humble baby design of the king executing judgment right now out of his mouth was a sharp sword that with it he should strike the nations and he himself will rule the rod of iron if he himself treads the wine presses of fierceness and wrath of Almighty God and he has on his robe and on his by a name written King of Kings and Lord of lords very clear this is the second coming of Jesus now this is symbolic language in the next several verses here but you get the picture of the destruction and represents that I thought Angel spinning the sun he cried with a loud voice think of all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven and gather together for the supper of the great God that you may keep the flesh of kings the flesh of captains the flesh of mighty men in the flesh of horses in the boat to sit on the flesh of all people free and slave both small and great the pretty gruesome scene there's going to be apparently a great number of deceased people but the birds are going to feed on hold use graphic right it's a picture book goes on and I saw verse nineteen the beast the kings of the earth and their armies gathered to make war against him who sat on the worst against his army so God is coming with his people under through their people who are not looking for that negative rise up against them then the beast was captured and worked in with him the false prophet who were signs in his presence by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image and were to come back to the market to be stressed they were getting there in a later series but for now these two were cast alive into the lake of burning fire with brimstone and the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of him to settle the horse and all the birds were filled with their flash basil everyone who is not looking for is not be going behold this is our God we waited for him he will say that everyone who ran and hid box with it could be wiped out at the scene of arithmetic universal death will nearly universal you would think at this point surely this is when Satan gets his right if the wicked to be destroyed the king of the wicked should surely meet his end now look at the very next words Chapter twenty verse one then I saw an angel coming down from heaven having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his and he laid hold of the dragon notice that the linguistic kind revelation chapter twelve versus seventy nine with the verse where it says in verse nine the Dragon that ancient serpent called the double or Satan notices the same being he laid hold of the dragon that serpent of old who is the devil and Satan and bound him for a thousand years definitely on the righteous are taken to heaven and as Paul talks about the dead in Christ will rise first those were library they will be caught up in the air to meet him but everyone else will be destroyed by the brightness of his coming almost everyone is the one being who's left to live the coming of Jesus the one wicked being to be left alive is Satan himself the health there is this notices any thirty five thousand years any testament the bottomless pit and shut him up and set a seal on him so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished by the way this change seems to be a symbolic chain of circumstances what has happened at all the other nations that would be there they are all that right there's nothing there to tempt no one to talk to no one to see is just now noticed this so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished which is a strong implication that the nations will be alive again to tempt and deceive and now notice this language but after these things it is after the thousand years of being bound he lost the release for a little while now he will be or to escape real snake out the window he must be released for a little while now how does this possibly Nixon's other possible to Jesus returns and all the righteous dead arise first of all the living righteous go with them the sheep would we go into the barn but all the tears all the wicked ones are bound in front of the fire that destroyed it what is coming and you have a clean separation between righteous and wicked the living and the dead yet this guy stays alive for another thousand years and apparently at the end of the thousand years is good to get the glossy donations again is to have an audience once again how does this make sense how is it part of God 's plan to destroy Satan let's take a look at this let's go to the next page now fill in the blanks the lone survivor among the wicked of the return of Jesus is no Satan himself instead of being destroyed Satan is bound for one thousand years of being destroyed he simply tied down a stock is bound for a thousand years of course Satan can deceive the nations no more because at this point they're all that they don't exist they just gone and in its excesses after this set amount of time after the thousand years apparently Satan and you got it if this were there must be released for a little while according to Scripture the literal language of Scripture that he must be released from this thousand year prison fairly somehow in God 's great plan to in the sin once and for all he has to wake up as to be unleashed one would so let's go with understand what's going on during the spousal new keep reading the text the reversal for now and I saw thrones and they sat upon them and judgment was committed to them then I saw the souls of those who'd been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God who had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on therefore heads are on the right hands so these are those who came out of the great tribulation who did not bow their knee who did not receive the mark of the beast remained faithful to God to the very end currently there seated on thrones and they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years so the regained the righteous are in heaven with Christ sitting on thrones for a thousand years the same amount of time that Satan is bound to deserve four thousand year backing of undiversified but the rest of the dead the rest of the dead did not live again on Hill and here's another implication there is a resurrection of the wicked coming right at the second coming of Jesus there is a resurrection of the righteous and the dead in Christ will rise the nose was as rise when first is interested Susan Rice second the dead not incorrect string loses again but the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished so there's another resurrection coming not just the one in Jesus second coming interest now this is the first resurrection those who are sitting on the throne there they've experienced the first resurrection of the righteous they are reigning with Christ that the rest of the dead I could come up until the patient in the second resurrection Blessed and holy the Museum of Art in the first resurrection over such the second death has no power severely by the weight of these people die at some point according to that had they died yes it's very clearly first Oregon then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded beheading the dead friends right for their testimony to Jesus and for the word of God they had not worshiped the beast exhibited not received the mark and therefore had from their hands and they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years so they died but then they would begin they've been resurrected in the Scripture called that the first resurrection they experienced first staff but they don't have to experience second right blood again verse five the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished there's an abuse second resurrection describing the first one this is the first resurrection Blessed and holy is he was part of the first resurrection over such the second death has no power but they shall be priests of God and of Christ and shall reign with him a thousand years now this is fascinating when Jesus comes again the Bible repeatedly says behold I come quickly and my reward is with me to get to each according to his works so when Jesus comes again has the determinate determination been made already who is righteous and who is wicked yes very clearly right is a separate in shape there's about a group to the bar in the grip of our very clear so there has already been a judgment before he even came the second time to determine who the righteous and who are the wicked and simply he comes to execute that judgment when it comes the second time to separate the sheep from the goats does that make this open would take a look at this in the Bible to make sure we speak go back to Daniel chapter seven page eight sixty four we've seen this before in our prophecy study will take a look at it again in the light of this current study Daniel chapter seven starting with verse seven no notice the scripts again after I saw after this I saw in the night visions and behold a fourth beast dreadful and terrible exceedingly strong of course that represents the kingdom of a two or three B new Rome right Babylon media Persia Greece and Rome fourteen was wrong again for seven after the first on the night visions and behold a fourth beast dreadful and terrible exceedingly strong and huge INT is devouring breaking in pieces and trampling the residue of the state it was different from all the one piece before it and it had ten horns there's a beast that has ten horns just like we saw the iron legs at ten kilos divided Rome I was considering the horns and there was another horn a little one coming up among them before whom three of the first one for blocked out by the roots and they are in this one were eyes like the iPhone man and a mouth speaking pompous words this is the rise of the antichrist power the spiritual power that comes out of Rome the Roman Catholic papacy it covered all this before now what happens during this time worst night I watched till thrones were put in place major goal for Revelation chapter twenty the judgment described after Jesus comes from to put in place right so prevalent thrones are put in place this is the judgment seat and will see from the language in the text as we continue in the ancient of days was seated his garment was white as snow and the hair of his head was like pure wool his throne was a fiery flame its wheels of burning fire a fiery stream issued and can even before him and thousand thousands ministered to him ten thousand and ten thousand stood before him and here's very clear the court was seated and the books were opened this is a judgment scene in heaven now verse eleven is this the second coming no this is before the second I watched Ben because of the sound of the pompous words of the Lord was speaking I watched till the beast was slain and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame now when is the beast destroyed in his body given to the burning flame was quickly go back Revelation chapter nineteen as we just saw in verse twenty Revelation chapter nineteen in verse twenty C of Revelation and Daniel matchup on this point then the beast was captured and with him the false prophet who work signs in his presence by which he deceived those received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image these two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone right so this is it you Revelation chapter nineteen there describes the second coming of Jesus and it talks about the beast being destroyed and being burned by fire but notice that the judgment scene in Daniel chapter seven precedes or comes before the second coming of Jesus there is a judgment in heaven before Jesus comes and let's think of the logic of it why would there be a judgment before the second coming to determine right the sheep from the goats right who was going it is not who's got to go to the burn is to go to the barn you can separate so when Jesus comes he doesn't have to come come back to the earth and then set up a courtroom scene and start judging people in an amount the judge was already determined what you said behold I come quickly and my reward is what with me to give my part of the determined under is coming to build out to execute the judgment has already been an investigation beforehand and investigative stage of judgment before Christ returns and when Jesus comes the second time he pulled up the reward for the punishment right some go to life and self to death so of all that has happened then we see Satan however is bound for a thousand years when everybody else is dead these just stuck but after the thousand years there's been a be another resurrection a resurrection of the wicked so let's think of the justice of this we have to critically think about this if God truly Islam how in the world visit part of his loving just plan to kill people at the second coming weight of thousand years and wake them up again just to kill him again I'm in for the service loving God and this is what his word says we better understand the Supreme Court the service one question why we kill anybody is to wake him up until him again and why of all the people who get the latest Satan the one who gets to live but if there's one person should be wiped out is to be held right how does this make sense I swear to make sure that you see the accurate picture of what the Bible is describing right now there's this difficult neck Revelation chapter twenty note I went to haven't noticed revelation twenties having of your home-based nice feel to put these the paper the area fingers something relationship to twenty two eleven eighty eight relationship at twenty notice with that but the righteous are doing during this thousand years verse four and I saw thrones and they sat on them and judgment was committed to their already been a judgment even before Jesus came yes so there's been a judgment in heaven before Jesus comes Jesus comes to execute the note the results of that judgment many takes is the righteous to heaven and NATO work of judgment know the answer are they determining who is going to be lost as to be saved no has already been determined beforehand yes apparently what they're doing is reviewing what has been done is continue on verse Oregon I saw thrones and they sat on them and judgment was committed to them now what does this judgment by the way does the Scripture is is only in one chapter the Bible is the just as apocryphal picture language is surely to be twisting that to mean whatever you want is there anywhere else the Bible talks about the stretch will handily enough it does repeatedly for instance but go to revelation I'm sorry first Corinthians chapter two verse twenty and sponsor chapter six kids say things correctly first Corinthians chapter six the apostle Paul by the Windows ME page figure eleven zero two eleven oh two the apostle Paul dealt with some difficult individuals difficult church members in the church of Corinth in particular it's good it's a good thing the churches don't have difficult numbers anymore so that's good but Paul Cork I had to deal with difficult people write a notice in chapter six in verse one what he says dare any of you having a matter against another go to the law before the unrighteous and not before the Saints currently one of the issues was they were having difficulties with in the brother it was in the church family and they were going to the court of law I settle disputes with legal matters I want you to do it in-house letting take care of each other and then he lays out why that should happen in notices very carefully his reasoning verse two do you not know that apparently the student was common sense is one of the things you should know do you not know that this Saints will do what judge the world saints will judge the world and if the world will beat and I love the logic of it if the world will be judged by Hugh are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters apparently we should be developing discernment injudicious thinking even now because the Lord is going to entrust us to do a work of judgment this is the art of the possible did you know you to be in charge of judging a player and you can even settle matters between yourself here right so it goes on verse three notices do you not know that we shall judge what order to judge the earth and Angels how much more than things that pertain to this life makes total sense do you not know that we shall judge the world we shall judge angels stick a look at a few other texts talk about this the apostle Peter except that same theme second Peter chapter two page eleven sixty two second Peter chapter two in verse four and tell me this doesn't sound like the language of revelation twenty relationship to a second Peter chapter two in verse four for if God did not spare the what who who did what I is a big Angels who sin but did what with them pass them down we seen in the book Revelation in the cast them down to hell she will have a whole study on health awareness and delivered them into what chains of darkness to be reserved for what judgment notice to cast them out of heaven but didn't destroy them but he reserves them change them preserve them for a day of judgment to come very clear that there is a coming judgment it's interesting that uses the language of change them down waiting for this judgment don't listen to the book of Jude right before the book of Revelation a tiny little sliver of the book June eighth eleven seventy three June six by leaving St. Paul with St. Peter we seen June and of course John in the book of Revelation basically all the New Testament writers keep coming back to this theme of a coming judgment after Jesus was come Jude six and the Angels who did not keep their proper domain but left their own abode by Lewis abode it's a dwelling place at your house for you live right beside method being cast out of heaven and the angels who did not keep their proper domain but left their own abode he has reserved in everlasting what chains under darkness for the what judgments of the great day continually looking forward to this judgment were even the Angels all the way those ones were used to be with Lucifer in heaven they were all cast out together they been reserved for judgment for this great income very clear one more Matthew chapter eight page nine forty two in your pew Bible Matthew chapter eight this I believe is fascinating from the lips of demons themselves and if you don't believe the Bible writers leave a demon I'm not sure that's the punchline we want in there but but you get the concept even the demons understand the scenario that would talk about Matthew chapter twenty geez is a fascinating encounter with two demon possessed men notice this verse twenty eight we come to the other side of the country the garden seems very met him two demon possessed man coming out of the tunes exceedingly fierce so that no one could pass that way that we do need to give the best men who made the tomb there home and just hung up scared everybody tormented them is an awful thing and suddenly verse twenty nine they cried out saying what have we to do with you Jesus you son of God violated even though Jesus was Elizabeth and the Jews rivaling out if you are you sure of who they say in an Olympic team and had no problems on God they know exactly who they're talking to enjoy their dealing with any sense they said to him what have we to do with you Jesus you son of God and of the question have you come here to torment us before what time do they understand there's an appointed time coming during they see Jesus coming that will Clinton is a this is according to schedule union fastening all throughout the New Testament from the lips of demons themselves the looking forward looking forward but they're anticipating this coming judgment and obviously again go back or keep obviously the Saints who will judge the world of the possible talk about are not determining who should be saved or lost as Christ already divided the righteous with the wicked second coming that's already been determined but they are reviewing the judgments made in ratifying them with their approval here's the reason it's italicized that the oldest got up it matters to God what his creatures think of he wants all those who will be saved and since living throughout eternity to understand why this destruction happens it's going to be okay he wanted to take a look at the house and you look at all the books looked the whole judgment the judgment I just completed and have it but I came down here to execute a want you to review it is you have questions Wyeth and so-and-so not here or why is that guy over here I mean happy to see your brother but how is it possible to as we can see the heart right but apparently recorded in heaven or have read secretly Scripture makes his patent everything why is it you want by the way is I'm glad that you accept Christ to record blotted out they don't have to look at every note granted he covered by the blood of Jesus you know that makes sense that's why you're here but there are people who do choose not to be covered by the blood of Jesus though I do not only been blotted out of the records understand my own defense ever heard of you heard the probably slaughter the little saying that a crook who defends himself has a fool for lawyer I believe the there are people who had an option to have their whole record blotted out by the blood of Jesus they just don't want London on whether I'm a pretty square and since I'm good thank you okay and thus the Saints are reviewing and ratify saying Lord you're right I totally see why this makes sense this makes it and if you see what's going on here in the very first step of Satan 's fall Christ understood the inside out he understood that in from the beginning he already knows all that needs me know what those around him in heaven distance so they had cast him out instead of blocking them out of existence but when they saw the cross then witnessed the four thousand years of history of all the things that went on up to that point they said no we see it he's his own living record go ahead with you pull the trigger but now we have that choice are we going to be saved are we going to loss or we can have our record covered by the blood of Jesus and overcome Satan by the blood of the lamb or are we to stand with Lucifer I don't need you automated regularly do web good but the righteous even when the resurrected can't see why the weaker moments they just see simply that they are but now Christ opens the books as your thousand meters those seats that were taken you soon take a look at the tickets honestly I don't want to go forward in history with any questions left unanswered everyone gets an opportunity to understand why anything is done has been done with it down no amendment machetes available only to come together this Psalm one forty nine because you would think that the destruction of the second coming of Jesus and going to heaven that's what everything will be happy but obviously there's still a work to do after the second coming of Jesus this the devil is still alive he got a few of them somehow in the righteous still need to understand what's going on in God 's mind he opens the book to them so yes while the righteous are thrilled to be stated in heaven there's still a difficult work to do it's a bittersweet experience if you can say that right and I believe that's what we see in rep and Psalm one forty nine watch this verse nine let the same to be joyful and glory let them sing aloud on their bed let the high praises of God be in their mouth and a two-edged sword in their hand to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the people to bind their kings their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron to execute on them the written judgment this honor have all the saints is a bizarre they like praising the Lord glory happy happy happy but at the same time as a sort of their hand in reviewing the judgment and if the execution of the judgment still to come it seems to be the experience of the same but there can have during the thousand years slip back in Revelation twenty our home base Revelation twelve chapter twenty verse seventy just pick the right chronologically was going on now when the thousand years have expired Satan will be released from his prison which again is a reference to the resurrection of the wicked now is to have people go out and play with your toilet or sport the disease and will go out to a narrative first data will go out to deceive the nations which are the four corners of your dog in Magog to gather them together for what purpose battle you can imagine things been alone for two thousand years the greatest masterminded evil universes ever know that no one is talking known to ten pieces laying plans reviewing his own he's review his own little judgment by the way looking back on everything used us and those we could rise of the ground was the very first thing he does deceives this is is is is is only effective tool from the beginning of the great cultures the variant all he does is to see people I like was the only person who can raise people from the dead Jesus Christ but was probably the very first deception Satan does grave start opening people coming up and you can almost imagine you're welcome but someone stole in your kingdom look they took what's rightfully yours we need to go take it back and his first schools to deceive them and gather them together for what purpose according to Scripture for battle and perhaps the some of the saddest lines in Scripture right here who's number is as Sandra C massive army they went up on the breath of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city of course jump to the end is not very much of a battle is what's been a be there in fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them the devil who deceived them was cast in the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are and they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever put to the network and becoming back to that when we study how a witch again the message is entitled the good news about hell and I know you're looking at that that doesn't sound like good news yet got a come back okay but what's the point of just waking them up just how the rest of the city and destroyed while the punchline the purpose is found in the preceding verses than once a follows are the preceding verse verse starting with verse eleven what happens before their destroyed that makes the full thing makes sense then I saw a great white throne and him who sat on it from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away notice what when Jesus came the second time they fled away from his face they did this is the same Jesus now the same one that they ran away from his now their jobs on his great white throne and there was found no place for them and I saw the dead small and great standing before God and books were opened now these dead who were been alive right now there standing before God books are open and another book was opened which is the book of life and the dead were judged according to their what works right they stand in their own record I'm good I'll let my record speak for itself the dead are judged according to their works by the things that were written in the book sea gave up and then rented and death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them and they were judged each one according to his works then death and Hades were cast in the lake of fire this is not what second and anyone not found written in the book of life was cast in the lake before so before they are destroyed by fire they faced their record one more time because of you noticed God has understood the whole thing from the very beginning step one if step two the unfallen beings have been watching this whole thing and they understand all the things the deception Satan deceive is the deceiver unmasked is a murderer from the beginning of weasel about step three the righteous who accept Jesus Christ through his power overcome Satan amazing his deceptions they want nothing to do with it their allegiances for Jesus Christ and they reject Satan and then Jesus comes again who's the only group who has ever seen with Satan fell about the wicked think about the power of his friends Jesus raises them up to give them a chance to see the books of record even though they are going to die forever friends it even matters to God what his enemies think about the cabin offered in what they never get to be around us questions anyway right but that's not good enough for God he doesn't want to only be right he wants every creature under heaven see for themselves and understand clearly and have no more questions left is the why anyone stayed or anyone is lost why Satan should read why Satan should die because they seem for themselves it matters to God what people think even those people who are against something as we go here to begin the only ones would not get to see the contrast between Christ and Satan are the wicked they didn't seem to hold on right they need to see the resurrected Christ that let money with me show you this is your record this is the character that you've decided this is the one who's responsible for it it's not me it's a this is another chance at salvation by the way but simply the opportunity to stand wide to understand why they are lost have you ever run into people who you show them DNA to videotape evidence of them being wrong the stillness are edited but they finally knowledge you got me right at some point the weight of evidence is just simply so clear that there's no more obvious dating no more daunting or hitting on you were hiding just yet fine you're right the Bible looks forward to this day when everyone is going to see the difference between good and evil and dusty for themselves the person they have become in the choices they've made available they see the character they are developed would not be satisfied living in God 's purity and fill in the blank please God I heard this from pastor I respect love the way said it's not stolen right out from under God 's going to take everyone to happen who would be happy there the question is not is going to take me or not the questions and do you even want to go when this life is for is to develop a character that would fit into that society would love the law of God and not always be in rebellion not ever be in rebellion who would see what his way is just and true and you love it resonates with you harmonizing the so that no risk of this ever happening again ever comes up got to take everyone happen who would be happy to so I believe what we see in Revelation chapter twenty here is people not from a sense of love are not from a sense of repentance but just from the overwhelming clear evidence yes God is right Satan is wrong and honestly Lord I'd rather simply die than live with you but everyone by the way the uniqueness of this moment is the only time in the universe 's history when everyone who has ever lived will all be alive at the exact same and in one moment every knee shall bow every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord that guy they look for Tuesday closed on your Isaiah chapter forty five page seven zero two listen to the language to the Lord employs to talk about this opportunity salvation in the sadness of the loss rep Isaiah chapter forty five starting with verse twenty two page seven zero two in your pew Bible listen the Lord he says looks at me and me what they all yield ends of the earth this is an opportunity for everyone for God so loved what doesn't work on Philippa Jews rustle of the Christian God so loved the world everyone has an opportunity looked at me and be saved all you ends of the earth for I am God and there is no other I have sworn by myself the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness and shall not return that's in me every knee shall bow and every column shall take a note he's also a surely in the Lord have righteousness and strength to him men shall come and all shall be ashamed who are incensed against notice that everyone's fun with this but everyone may not everyone loves the Lord but even his enemies will admit you are right and I was wrong friends if you're still alive tonight you have a choice to make you do not have to be destroyed with the wicked you don't have to yell we all accused of the consumer alternate face first definitely to be honest about that image is uncommon and I got a one and on that note a Robin and I is true right out of its old age or bus or cancer I don't know if things board and I must first step but there's no reason anyone in this room has if a second Jesus is provided a way out the question is would you even want to go with the offer that's what this life is what has the presentation made sense was a logical praise the Lord I hope beyond just saying it makes sense that resonated to God as the God of justice and a God of mercy in and out of love from beginning to end the diets for WordPress heavenly father thank you thank you thank you for being a God who takes his time to get the process right you didn't do what Satan up the moment you saw the state in the iniquity in his heart because you knew that wouldn't solve the problem because you care about the righteous you've allowed the wickedness to mature and Lord even after the righteous and the wicked and separated you'll give it both a chance to see the record and why you're just is just and fair and righteous and right Lord help us to see it now while we can and in this way would help us to be drawn to Jesus and your Holy Spirit to those who might be struggling to wrestling with this decision Lord help everyone of us to continue grow in the light of Jesus Christ
