If only the righteous are alive during the millennium, where do the wicked come from at the end of it?

Speaker 1

So Rod is asking if all righteous  are resurrected at Christ’s second coming at end of tribulation, then it appears that only believers with glorified bodies would enter the 1000 year moment linear. If this is the case, then where do the rebellious sinners that Satan deceives come from who are cast into the fiery pit with Satan at the end of the 1000 years? Well my friend Rod, that is a very good question and I just want to say I really like your name Rod because it reminded me of Moses and his Rod. It was what Moses had in his hand and God used it for his glory. So I pray God uses you for his glory as well.

Speaker 1

So to answer your question, let’s go to the book of Revelation and we’ll start in chapter 19 and verse 21. So let’s go ahead and take a look there. Revelation 19 starting in verse 21 and says end the remnant. So basically chapter 19 talks about the false Prophet here and the beast is doing his thing and Jesus comes and it’s just like all right, time to get things straight when it comes to the wicked people on the Earth. It says basically in the last verse of this chapter, Revelation 1921 and the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse which is Jesus, which sword proceeded out of his mouth and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Speaker 1

So basically when Christ comes, everybody who’s alive and wicked are slain. There are no people left on the Earth because like it says in one, Thessalonians four that the dead in Christ shall rise first and then we that are alive and remain shall be caught up with him. So all God’s people are up in heaven and then all the wicked people left on Earth are slain. So where are these people coming from after the thousand year Millennium? Well you have to go to the next chapter.

Speaker 1

So keep reading in Revelation chapter 20 and if you go to verse, we’ll start with verses one through six. How’s that? Just to give you a little bit more context there so that you can see for sure I’m not making this up. I let the Bible speak for itself. It says, and I saw an angel come down from heaven having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

Speaker 1

So this is the beginning of the Millennium. So all God’s people are in heaven and all the wicked of the Earth are slain dead here on the Earth. And keep going. In verse two and he laid hold on the Dragon which is that old serpent which is the devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years. So this is the Millennium.

Speaker 1

So on Earth the devil is bound here on Earth. Verse three then goes on to say and cast him into the bottomless pit and shut him up and set a seal upon him that he should deceive the nations no more till the 1000 years should be fulfilled. And after that he must be loosed a little season. So this is what you’re talking about that after the 1000 years there’s going to be a time where Satan is going to deceive these bad people into attacking God’s Holy Jerusalem and God’s people after 1000 years. So keep going to verse four and it says, and I saw Thrones and they sat upon them and judgment was given unto them.

Speaker 1

And I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the word of God. And which had not worshiped the beast. Neither his image, neither had received his Mark upon their Fords and in their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. So God’s people are living with him up in heaven for 1000 years.

Speaker 1

So keep going verse five but the rest of the dead. So this is the answer to your question my friend Rod. But the rest of the dead live, not again until 1000 years were finished. This is the first resurrection. So the first resurrection is happening when Jesus first comes as the people are up in heaven all the wicked dead are down on the Earth and they don’t live until 1000 years are finished.

Speaker 1

So they are going to be resurrected in verse six kind of shows this blessed and Holy is he that has part in the first resurrection. On such the second death has no power but they shall be priests of God and of Christ and shall read with him 1000 years. Now if you go down to verse the end of the chapter, I believe verse 20, let me see.

Speaker 1

So if you go down to verse 15 in that same chapter it says and whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast in the Lake of fire. So between verse six and verse 15 you see that’s when that war happens where all the wicked are resurrected, they see Jesus coming and Satan is like, let’s get them, we can overpower God and his people. They see Holy Jerusalem coming down and all these bad people and Satan are consumed at his coming basically. So that is kind of the answer to your question but really the answer lies in revelation twelve or 20, verse five which says that these people are not alive again until after the thousand years they’re all re resurrected. It says that the water gives them up and that’s where they come from the Earth basically they’re resurrected.

Speaker 1

And then after they try to ban against God, God’s like this is judgment time and they can’t stand in the judgment and those that cannot stand in the judgment shall perish just like it says in Psalms chapter one.

Speaker 1

That is Prince pretty much that’s.
