So he’s saying, also when it says every knees will bow, will sinners actually be on their knees? And will this happen after the second resurrection?
Yeah, so great question. This is sort of going around the same time people were talking about. So after the millennium, after the dead have been dead for 1000 years, the wicked are raised up, and then we have them trying to attack the holy City in Revelation 20. And then, sorry about our neighbor’s dog. And then after the holy City is about to be attacked, God judges them. And as part of this judgment, I believe that it’s there in the Bible really implicitly, but it’ll take forever to explain. But I believe that God is going to reveal to everybody what they did, all their sins. And when the book of Life is unscrolled, we will just see and experience everything that happened. And we’ll see how God is actively working in our lives, in the whole world, trying to protect us, trying to bring us back to him, and then Satan actively trying to attack God and take us away and deceive us. And at the end, every sinner will have seen all their decisions they made, all the ways they hurt people, all the refusals to repent and turn around. And again, see the contrast to what Jesus did, how he suffered and how God tried so hard to forgive them and bring them back to him.
And it’s that time where everybody, I believe everybody, including Satan, will literally bend the knee in confessing that God is good. God is almighty not just by power, but mighty by his love, mighty by his goodness, his grace, his truth. And that, I think, will be a very powerful moment. Everybody will confess that God is fair and just and good. And in a sense, at that point, then, by the way, as part of this, I believe the wicked will also understand that they’re going to be condemned to destruction and they’re going to recognize they deserve it. So this is time where God has been on trial. He’s on trial right now. And everybody’s going to admit that God was right, Satan was a liar, and the rebellion was wrong, and God is right and good to put an end to it. And then that is when the flames of destruction come down. I believe that could even just be the glory, the presence of God. God could be holding it back right now because God is a consuming fire. And when he lets it go, it’ll just consume everybody. And those who have been ready, purified in the fire, those who are like gold will not be burned up.
Gold doesn’t burn in the fire. Gold gets more pure. And so God’s people will be more refined. God’s people will totally stand. God’s people can stand in the presence of God. That’s an interesting Bible study. Bible often asks, who can stand? So the righteous will stand. And Isaiah talks about it’s the righteous who can dwell in the everlasting Flames. The Bible says in Isaiah, the righteous will stand, whereas the wicked will be consumed. Consumed doesn’t mean burning forever and ever. Consumed means they’re burned up until they’re not there anymore to be burned up. And then they will be like ashes under the feet of the righteous.
The sin is gone.
Sin will be forever gone. So no more pain, no more sorrow, no more death. And thus, as RevelatiOn 20 says, and then death and Hades are cast into the lake of fire. So even death, death is destroyed, it will never come back. So by the last act of destroying sin, in the sense, sorry, both sin is destroyed and death will be destroyed. Beautiful thing.
All right, Tina, did you want to add anything to that or close us out?
I agree with that. I always think of when Jesus, everybody bows to him. I would think that’s at Christ coming. You see that in Philippians, chapter two, verse ten? You know that the name of Jesus. Every knee should bow of things in heaven, things in earth, and things under the earth. Definitely. I do think every knee is going to bow. I think in some way, shape or form, there’s going to be some respect made to Jesus because he deserves it.
