THE REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST
Timescapes - Nigel Stanford00:00
Revelation 21:10-11 (NKJV)
10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
God's Great Reward
There is a great reward, the Millennium, for all Christians living on Earth right now in these chaotic times- and all who received Jesus Christ as their Savior before this current generation.
The Millennium is the thousand year reign of Jesus Christ, King of all kings and Lord of all lords- here on Earth. His Saints and all those saved, will join him for the thousand years of true peace on earth- under heavenly rule. Many will live for hundreds of years as in the days of Noah. Everything will be restored.
Governments will be run by Christian Kings without corruption. We will have the opportunity to enjoy living without the evil influence of Satan and his demonic army of angels and agents on Earth. He and his entire army will be locked up in the Abyss during the Millennium.
Satan Bound for the 1000 Years
Revelation 20:1-3 (NIV)
20 And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. 2 He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3 He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.
The Great White Throne Judgment
At the end of the Millennium, Satan will be unleashed one more time on Earth to gather the unbelievers. Although the Millennium will be a time of peace, and everyone will live much longer, more fruitful lives, everyone born during the Millennium will still have original sin and free will.
Satan will not be able to influence anyone during that time, but because of natural sin, many will still eventually rebel and reject Jesus Christ- even with Him ruling on the Earth!
Satan will lead that last revolt at the end of the Millennium, then God will wipe everything out and all of the unbelievers during the Millennium and those who rejected Jesus Christ's gift of eternal salvation before the Millennium, will be called to the 2nd Resurrection- the 2nd Death- death of the Soul.
They will all go to the Great White Throne Judgment where they will all be cast into hell- the eternal lake of fire- forever- including Satan and all of his army previously locked up in the Abyss.
After the Millennium
God will create a New Heaven and New Earth and He, Jesus Christ and everyone who received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will live eternally in Paradise.
