1. All believers saved in resurrection and given glorified bodies will be priests of our Father in the 2nd Heaven or reign with Christ in His Kingdom on earth.

*Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years. Rev 20:6 NASB

*And Jesus said to them, "Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. Matt 19:28 NASB+

 

Some of us will help Jesus judge those who will come into and live in His newly regenerated earthly Kingdom. We will also help Jesus judge angels.

*Do you not know that the saints will judge the world. And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases 1Co 6:2 NIV+

*that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. Lk 22:30 ESV+

*Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life? 1Co 6:3 NKJV+

 

2. Those who physically survive Christís 2nd judgment when He returns in power, will come into His 1,000 year Kingdom. They will live in our Fatherís regenerated earth, with physically mortal bodies; and Jesus will require them to come to Jerusalem each year to worship and celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles (Booths) with Him. The survivors will no longer remember anything which happened in the old world; only what Jesus has to offer them in His new Kingdom.

*Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, they will have no rain. Zech 14:16-17 NIV+

*"Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. Isa 65:17

 

Peter tells us the heavens will disappear, the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth will be laid bare. God will create new heavens over the earth, and there will be a new cleansed earth; where righteousness will dwell. We know this is not Godís eternal New Heaven and Earth in Rev. 21:1; for they will be holy. In Christís 1,000 Kingdom on earth, only the mountain around Jerusalem will be holy, as well as the spiritual beings of those who love Jesus above all things. There will be sin on earth, and because of sin there will be physical death on earth.

*But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. 2Pe 3:10 NIV+

*looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. 2Pe 3:12-13 NASB+

 

Jerusalem will become Godís holy mountain, and here there will no longer be the sound of weeping or the cry of distress.

*I will rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in my people; no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping and the cry of distressIsa 65:19 ESV+

*They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. Isa 11:9 ESV+

*The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, but dust will be the serpent's food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain," says the Lord. Isa 65:25 NIV+

 

There will no longer be socialism; but plenty, as each takes care of his own family.

*They shall build houses and inhabit them; They shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. They shall not build and another inhabit; They shall not plant and another eat; For as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of My people, And My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. Isa 65:21-22 NKJV+

 

Yet in the rest of the earth there will be sin, and punishment for sin which will cause droughts and plagues upon the people who do not obey Jesus; do not go up to worship and present themselves to Him at the Feast of Booths.

 *And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rainZech 14:17 NKJV+

*On that day the prince shall provide for himself and all the people of the land a young bull for a sin offering. Eze 45:21-22 ESV+

 

Note the sacrifice was a bull, not a lamb; for only Jesus was the Lamb who shed His blood on the cross as the only means by which any personís spiritual being can be made holy. The only way any can be made holy is to love Jesus above all things, and all who love Jesus above all things will obey Him. Since all will now be able to physically see Jesus as their King, all will receive forgiveness when they obey the ceremonially laws He will institute; with some deviations from the time He lived physically upon the earth. Remember Jesus is now the King, the prince referred to here is David, for he must make a sin offering for himself also.

 

3. Any who love God above all things when they physically die in Christís earthly Kingdom; their spiritual being will go to the 2nd Heaven

4. The spiritual beings of all who loved God above all things, will live in the 2nd Heaven until the White Throne Judgment

*"Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; he who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere youth; he who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed. Isa 65:20 NIV+

*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--those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. Jn 5:28-29 NKJV+

 

5. Any who reject God, and physically die in Christís earthly Kingdom; their spiritual being will go to Hades

6.All who rejected God; spiritual beings wait in torment in Hades until the White Throne Judgment

*No more shall there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not fill out his days, for the young man shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed. Isa 65:19-20 ESV+

*ĒAnd many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt. Da 12:2 NKJV+

 

7. After 1,000 years, satan will be set free from being chained in the prison at Tartarus in the Abyss. satan will once again bring nations including Gog and Magog to fight against the saints who are physically living in Christís Kingdom at Jerusalem. God will bring down fire from the 2nd Heaven and devour satan and his army with fire. This will be the last battle, the last war which will ever happen.

*Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. Rev 20:7-8 NKJV+

*And they came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and devoured them. Rev 20:9 NASB+

 

8. satan will be thrown into Hell/Lake of Fire; the same place the antichrist/man of sin/beast and false prophet have been previously thrown. There they will all be tormented forever and ever.

*And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Rev 20:10 NIV+

 

Nothing is said about what happens to satanís demons, who were on the earth when satan was locked in the Tartarus/prison after the battle of†† Armageddon. We believe all satanís demons were locked up with him in Tartarus so there would be peace on the earth during Christís 1,000 year Kingdom. Then since Godís Word only tells us satan/devil was turned loose after the 1,000 years; we believe the rest of satan/devilís angels (really demons) will be judged at the White Throne Judgment with all the other demons. Because we know satan, antichrist/man of sin/beast, and false prophet will the greatest punishment, while the rest of the demons will be judged and receive punishment for what they did.††

*For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell [Greek Tartarus] and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; 2Pe 2:4 ESV+

 

9. satan cast here to be with the antichrist/man of sin/beast forever

*ďThen he will say to those on his left, ĎDepart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. Matt 25:41 ESV+

 

Then a Great White Throne will appear over earth; at an unknown place in the heavens, for both earth and Heaven have fled away.

*Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. Rev 20:11 NKJV+

 

10. The existing 2nd Heaven will be destroyed, will be no more

10a. The existing 1st heaven will be destroyed, will be no more

10b. The existing earth will be destroyed, will be no more

10c. Hades will be destroyed, will be no more

10d. Abyss will be destroyed, will be no more

10e. Tartarus will be destroyed, will be no more

 

The existing Heavenly Kingdom of God, the 2nd Heaven; here referred to as the first Heaven God created, where He created earth and everything in it, not in the sequence of where it is located from the earth as the 2nd Heaven; fled away, will pass away, be no more. Then the first earth is referring to the earth God created and then burned, cleansed, changed, made righteous for Christís 1,000 year Kingdom. It likewise fled away, will pass away, be no more and the kingdom of earth includes the 1st heaven over it; it also includes Hades, the Abyss, and Tartarus the prison in the Abyss; for all these are in the bottomless pit of the earth.

*Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. Rev 20:11 NKJV+

*Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. Rev 21:1 ESV+

 

11. All in the 2nd Heaven; includes all the angelic spiritual beings, all with glorified bodies, and all the spiritual beings of those who physically died loving Jesus in Christís 1,000 year Kingdom. They will be taken to the White Throne Judgment, for the 2nd Heaven will pass away. Dead refers to those who have physically died.

*And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. Rev 20:12 NKJV+

 

11a. All who were physically living in Christís Kingdom on earth will be taken to the White Throne Judgment; an unknown place in the heavens, when the earth and itís first heaven will pass away.

*Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. Rev 20:11 NKJV+

 

11b. All the sinful spiritual beings of people from Hades will be brought to the White Throne Judgment; for Hades will be no more

*And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Rev 20:13 ESV+

 

11c. All demonic spirits (angels who sinned) from Abyss go to White Throne Judgment

11d. All demonic spirits (angels who sinned) from Tartarus go to White Throne Judgment

*For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell [Greek Tartarus] and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; 2Pe 2:4 ESV+

 

12. 2nd resurrection; all spiritual beings in 2nd Heaven or in Hades; reunited to their dead bodies

 

The 1st resurrection will be for all who accepted our God from Adam the first man, until the day Jesus will come in the clouds and gather (raptured) us up and give us glorified bodies. After Jesus has given us glorified bodies, He will judge our works and reward us for them; and we will not be judged again. We have no fear of the White Throne Judgment; we will merely be spectators at the 2nd resurrection; who will see Jesus avenge the wrongs other have done to us because we loved our Savior.

*But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Rev 20:5 NKJV+

*They called out in a loud voice, "How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?" Rev 6:10 NIV+

 

The 2nd resurrection will include all the spiritual beings living in the 2nd Heaven; those who will physically die in Christís 1,000 year Kingdom and have accepted God. Their spiritual beings will come down to the White Throne Judgment to be united with their resurrected physical bodies, which have been glorified. Their names will be in the Book of Life, and they will be judged to receive their reward for the works they have done for Christ while they lived in His Kingdom.

The 2nd resurrection will also include all the spiritual beings in Hades, those who will physically die rejecting God; from Adam to the White Throne Judgment. At the White Throne Judgment their spiritual beings will be reunited with their physical beings which will be made eternal. Then they will be judged on the evil they have done to determine the severity of their punishment, and be thrown in the Lake of Fire forever.††

*and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man. 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--those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. Jn 5:27-29 NKJV+

 

13. 3rd judgment on; 1. All demons in Abyss + Tartarus 2. All rejected God; those alive in Christís Kingdom + all from Hades

††††† 3. All love Jesus from Christís Kingdom; alive and from 2nd Heaven

 

At the 3rd judgment at the White Throne; Jesus will execute judgment on:

 

1. All who love God; those still physically alive on the earth after satanís army is defeated; those who physically died in Christís Kingdom, their spiritual beings going to 2nd Heaven, but now have been reunited with their physical being; will come into the New Heaven and Earth. Jesus will judge them according to what they have done for God, and they will be rewarded for the works in the New Heaven and Earth. Dead refer to those who have died are in 2nd Heaven.

*And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. Rev 20:12 ESV+

 

2. All who rejected God; those still physically alive on the earth after satanís army is defeated; those who physically died in Christís Kingdom, their spiritual beings going to Hades, but now have been reunited with their physical being; their names will not be in the Book of Life. Jesus will judge them according to what they had done, for the severity of their punishment in Hell/Lake of Fire.

*And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Rev 20:15 NASB+

*And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Rev 20:13 ESV+

 

3. All demons in Abyss and Tartarus will judged, thrown into Hell/Lake of Fire; their punishment there will be determined according to their works in the 2nd Heaven, on earth, to the people on earth.

*And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great dayó Jude 1:6 ESV+

 

14. 2nd death for 1. all people not in Book of life 2. all demons; both cast into Hell/Lake of Fire

 

All who have been gathered in the clouds and given glorified bodies are part of the 1st resurrection, will be with Jesus forever; will never be judged again, have nothing to with the 2nd death, it has no power over them. Only those from Adam to the White Throne Judgment who have rejected Jesus; whether they have physically died and their spiritual being is in Hades, or if they are still physically alive on earth will face the 2nd death; along with all demonic spirits in the Abyss or Tartarus in the Abyss.††

*Blessed and holy is he who has part in 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. Rev 20:6 NKJV+

*But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." Rev 21:8 NKJV+

*Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. Rev 20:14ESV+

 

14a. All humans not in Book of Life cast Hell/Lake of Fire; punished according to their sins

*And if anyoneís name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Rev 20:15 ESV+

*"And that slave who knew his master's will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, will receive many lashes, but the one who did not know it, and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more. Lk 12:47-48 NASB+

 

All human beings who ever physically lived on earth and rejected God; will live forever in a resurrected eternal physical body which will be punished forever according to their sins in Hell/Lake of Fire. We do not know exactly where the Lake of Fire is, for Heaven and earth will have passed away. Except that it will not be in our presence, only in the presence of Jesus and His angels.

*And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matt 10:28 NKJV+

*he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. "And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name." Rev 14:10-11 NASB+

 

14b. All demons from Abyss and Tartarus cast Hell/Lake of fire to live eternally

 

We must remember that some angels who disobeyed God, became satanís angels, really demons who were thrown into the torment of the Abyss or Tartarus the prison in the Abyss were tormented from the time they were thrown there; the 1st death for them. At the White Throne Judgment they will be thrown into the 2nd death; Hell/Lake of Fire forever.

*And Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" And he said, "Legion"; for many demons had entered him. They were imploring Him not to command them to go away into the abyss. Lk 8:30-31 NASB+

*ďThen he will say to those on his left, ĎDepart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. Matt 25:41 ESV+

 

15. All with glorified bodies, all who loved God in Christís Kingdom; come into His New Heaven, New Earth, New Jerusalem

All believers will have their name written in the ďBook of Life,Ē will come eternally into the New Jerusalem, to be with our God, to be with all children of God from the beginning of the world. And all believers with glorified bodies will always be with our God, will live with Him forever, in a place Jesus will prepared for us.

*Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. Rev 21:1-2 NIV+

*And He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." And He said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true." Then He said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. "He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. Rev 21:5-7 NASB+

*and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life. Rev 21:27 NASB+

 

16. Israel and the Gentiles will become one family with our Father, our brother Jesus, and the Holy Spirit; living forever with glorified spiritual bodies in our Fatherís New Heaven, New Earth, New Jerusalem.

 

God promised Israel that it would be a nation until the sun and moon no longer shine; and this will only happen when God creates a new Heaven and earth; and then we will all become one family with our Heavenly Father. ††††

*This is what the Lord says, he who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar-- the Lord Almighty is his name: "Only if these decrees vanish from my sight," declares the Lord, "will the descendants of Israel ever cease to be a nation before me. Jer 31:35-36 NIV+

*There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. Rev 22:5 NKJV+

*And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." Rev 21:3-4 NKJV+
