The Longest Prison Sentence

The Bible is very clear about the state of the righteous living, righteous dead, wicked living and wicked dead. It is easier to be saved than it is to be lost. The Holy Spirit will continue to try and reach lost souls throughout the person’s life. We were given free choice by God. Revelation gives us prophecy about what is coming at the second coming of Jesus.



Revelation 20:1-6


Satan Bound 1000 Years


 1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into 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. But after these things he must be released for a little while.
The Saints Reign with Christ 1000 Years


  
4 And I saw thrones, and They sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had 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 their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 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.
They means the Righteous or Saints. This is powerful. God is going to allow His Saints to judge the wicked.

John 5:28-29
Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice 29 and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.


So the Righteous Living and Righteous Dead will meet the Lord in the air.

John 14:1-3
The Way, the Truth, and the Life


 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

Revelation 20:5
But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
So the Wicked dead stay dead for 1,000 years.

Revelation 6:14-17 
Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. 15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?

The wicked living will beg for rocks to fall on them. Jesus is looking for that one time a human being will say: “Come into my heart”. Jesus will wait 1,000 times to get to that one time when a human seeks Jesus.

2 Thessalonians 2:8-10
And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

The wicked living will not be able to stand the brightness of the Lord.

Jeremiah 4:23-28

I beheld the earth, and indeed it was without form, and void;
       And the heavens, they had no light.
        24 I beheld the mountains, and indeed they trembled,
       And all the hills moved back and forth.
        25 I beheld, and indeed there was no man,
       And all the birds of the heavens had fled.
        26 I beheld, and indeed the fruitful land was a wilderness,
       And all its cities were broken down
       At the presence of the LORD,
       By His fierce anger.
 
 27 For thus says the LORD: 
 
       The whole land shall be desolate;
       Yet I will not make a full end.
        28 For this shall the earth mourn,
       And the heavens above be black,
       Because I have spoken.
       I have purposed and will not relent,
      Nor will I turn back from it.

Now to sum up what happens at the second coming of Christ:

Revelation 20:1-9
Satan Bound 1000 Years
 
  1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into 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. But after these things he must be released for a little while.

The Saints Reign with Christ 1000 Years
     
 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had 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 their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 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.

Satanic Rebellion Crushed
 
7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8 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. 9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.

Revelation 21:1-2
Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

I look forward to that day when Jesus returns. I gave my heart to Jesus and rededicated myself to Him in the past few years. All you have to do is ask, and Jesus will respond to a sincere heart. This old world is dying and getting hard to live in.
