  • DURING THOSE THOUSAND YEARS,
  • 00:05:03.526 --> 00:05:04.794

  • REMEMBER THE ABYSS,THE BOTTOMLESS PIT,
  • 00:05:20.443 --> 00:05:23.479
  • IS A PLACE RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:05:23.513 --> 00:05:25.047
  • WHERE THERE AREA GROUP OF DEMONS

  • WHO HAVE BEEN JUDGED ALREADY
  • 00:05:26.849 --> 00:05:29.152

  • IT IS A HORRIBLEPLACE, THE ABYSS.
  • 00:05:32.021 --> 00:05:35.024
  • THE PLACE OF JUDGMENTFOR THE DEMONS.
  • 00:05:35.057 --> 00:05:37.994
  • AND JOHN SAID,

  • "I SAW AN ANGELWHO HELD THE KEY,
  • 00:05:39.262 --> 00:05:40.930
  • TO OPEN UP THAT ABYSS."
  • 00:05:40.963 --> 00:05:42.532
  • HE ALSO HAD A CHAIN IN HIS HAND.
  • 00:05:42.565 --> 00:05:44.901
  • AND WHAT DID HE DO?
  • 00:05:44.934 --> 00:05:45.935
  • THE ANGEL LAID HOLD, VERSE 2,
  • 00:05:45.968 --> 00:05:48.037
  • OF THE DRAGON, THESERPENT OF OLD,

  • AND BOUND HIM FORA THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 00:05:51.941 --> 00:05:55.578
  • AND HE THREW SATAN INTOTHE ABYSS AND HE SHUT IT
  • 00:05:55.611 --> 00:05:58.981
  • AND HE SEALED IT OVER HIM,
  • 00:05:59.015 --> 00:06:00.917
  • THAT SATAN WOULD NOT DECEIVETHE NATIONS ANY LONGER,
  • 00:06:00.950 --> 00:06:04.787
  • UNTIL A THOUSANDYEARS WERE COMPLETED.
  • 00:06:04.821 --> 00:06:08.157
  • THE PRIMARY FEATUREOF THIS PERIOD,
  • 00:06:08.191 --> 00:06:10.393
  • KNOWN AS THE MILLENNIUM,
  • 00:06:10.426 --> 00:06:11.894
  • IS THAT SATAN ISGOING TO BE BOUND.
  • 00:06:11.928 --> 00:06:15.031
  • HE IS NO LONGERFREE LIKE HE IS NOW,
  • 00:06:15.064 --> 00:06:17.567
  • TO ROAM UP AND DOWN THE EARTH

  • AND TO DECEIVE BELIEVERSAND UNBELIEVERS ALIKE.
  • 00:06:19.902 --> 00:06:23.539
  • HE WILL BE BOUND FORA THOUSAND YEARS,
  • 00:06:23.573 --> 00:06:26.676
  • THAT'S WHY IT'S LUDICROUS TO SAY
  • 00:06:26.709 --> 00:06:28.845
  • THAT WE'RE LIVING IN THEMILLENNIUM RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:06:28.878 --> 00:06:31.280
  • SATAN IS ANYTHING BUT BOUND,
  • 00:06:31.314 --> 00:06:32.982
  • JUST READ YOUR NEWSPAPERS,
  • 00:06:33.015 --> 00:06:35.084
  • JUST LOOK AT YOUR TELEVISION.
  • 00:06:35.117 --> 00:06:36.919
  • SATAN SEEMS TO HAVE FREEREIGN OVER THE WORLD
  • 00:06:36.953 --> 00:06:40.122
  • BUT IT WON'T ALWAYS BE THAT WAY.
  • 00:06:40.156 --> 00:06:42.124
  • DURING THE MILLENNIUM,
  • 00:06:42.158 --> 00:06:43.326
  • HE IS BOUND FORTHE THOUSAND YEARS,
  • 00:06:43.359 --> 00:06:45.394
  • UNTIL THE THOUSANDYEARS WERE COMPLETED.
  • 00:06:45.428 --> 00:06:49.699
  • AND THEN NOTICE THE LASTPHRASE OF VERSE THREE,
  • 00:06:49.732 --> 00:06:52.201
  • "AFTER THESE THINGS,
  • 00:06:52.235 --> 00:06:54.170
  • SATAN MUST BE RELEASEDFOR A SHORT TIME."
  • 00:06:54.203 --> 00:06:58.074
  • WHY MUST SATAN BE RELEASED?
  • 00:06:58.107 --> 00:06:59.809
  • I MEAN, YOU WOULDTHINK GOD HAS HIM.
  • 00:06:59.842 --> 00:07:01.611
  • HE'S BOUND HIM UP,
  • 00:07:01.644 --> 00:07:03.012
  • HE'S THROWN HIM IN THE ABYSS.
  • 00:07:03.045 --> 00:07:04.547
  • SURELY, THAT'S THE END.
  • 00:07:04.580 --> 00:07:05.882
  • NO, THERE'S ONE FINAL REBELLION
  • 00:07:05.915 --> 00:07:08.284
  • THAT MUST TAKE PLACE.
  • 00:07:08.317 --> 00:07:09.418
  • BUT BEFORE WE GET TO THAT,
  • 00:07:09.452 --> 00:07:11.320
  • LOOK AT VERSES FOUR THROUGH SIX.
  • 00:07:11.354 --> 00:07:13.489
  • BECAUSE JOHN DESCRIBESSOMETHING ELSE
  • 00:07:13.523 --> 00:07:15.358
  • WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND AS WELL.
  • 00:07:15.391 --> 00:07:17.727
  • AND THAT'S THE CONCEPTOF THE TWO RESURRECTIONS.
  • 00:07:17.760 --> 00:07:21.297
  • WE TALKED ABOUT THISAT LENGTH LAST TIME.
  • 00:07:21.330 --> 00:07:23.566
  • BUT REMEMBER JOHN SAIDTHERE ARE TWO RESURRECTIONS,
  • 00:07:23.599 --> 00:07:29.438
  • FOR THE SAVED AND THE UNSAVED.
  • 00:07:29.472 --> 00:07:30.706
  • THE SAVED ARE GOING TO HAVETHEIR BODIES RESURRECTED
  • 00:07:30.740 --> 00:07:34.443
  • AND CHANGED SO THATTHEY CAN EXPERIENCE
  • 00:07:34.477 --> 00:07:36.612
  • GOD'S BLESSING FOREVER.
  • 00:07:36.646 --> 00:07:38.414
  • THAT'S THE FIRST RESURRECTION,
  • 00:07:38.447 --> 00:07:39.916
  • THE RESURRECTION OF THE SAVED.
  • 00:07:39.949 --> 00:07:41.817
  • BUT THERE IS ASECOND RESURRECTION,
  • 00:07:41.851 --> 00:07:43.719
  • THE RESURRECTION OF THE UNSAVED,
  • 00:07:43.753 --> 00:07:46.455
  • THAT WE'LL LOOK ATIN JUST A MOMENT.
  • 00:07:46.489 --> 00:07:48.024
  • AND GOD RAISES THEM UP,
  • 00:07:48.057 --> 00:07:50.426
  • HE GIVES THEM A NEW BODY,
  • 00:07:50.459 --> 00:07:51.894
  • NOT TO EXPERIENCE GOD'S BLESSING
  • 00:07:51.928 --> 00:07:53.729
  • BUT TO EXPERIENCE GOD'S JUDGMENT
  • 00:07:53.763 --> 00:07:55.998
  • FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER.
  • 00:07:56.032 --> 00:07:58.568
  • AND THAT'S WHY THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:07:58.601 --> 00:07:59.669
  • REVELATION 20:6,
  • 00:07:59.702 --> 00:08:01.337
  • "BLESSED IS THE PERSON
  • 00:08:01.370 --> 00:08:03.105
  • WHO IS A PART OF THEFIRST RESURRECTION."
  • 00:08:03.139 --> 00:08:05.174
  • THE RESURRECTION OF THE SAVED,
  • 00:08:05.207 --> 00:08:06.976
  • BECAUSE OVER HIM,
  • 00:08:07.009 --> 00:08:08.444
  • THE SECOND DEATH HAS NO POWER.
  • 00:08:08.477 --> 00:08:12.582
  • THE FIRST RESURRECTIONOCCURS IN STAGES.
  • 00:08:12.615 --> 00:08:16.619
  • EACH MAN SHALL BE RAISED,
  • 00:08:16.652 --> 00:08:18.020
  • PAUL SAID IN FIRSTCORINTHIANS 15,
  • 00:08:18.054 --> 00:08:19.622
  • ACCORDING TO HIS OWN ORDER.
  • 00:08:19.655 --> 00:08:23.292
  • TOGMA, PLACE IN THAT PARADE.
  • 00:08:23.326 --> 00:08:26.562
  • BUT THE SECOND RESURRECTION,
  • 00:08:26.596 --> 00:08:28.164
  • THE RESURRECTION OF THE UNSAVED,
  • 00:08:28.197 --> 00:08:29.432
  • AS WE'LL SEE IN A MINUTE,
  • 00:08:29.465 --> 00:08:31.200
  • HAPPENS AT ONE TIME.
  • 00:08:31.233 --> 00:08:32.802
  • THERE'S ONE POINT IN HISTORY
  • 00:08:32.835 --> 00:08:34.437
  • WHEN ALL THE UNSAVEDWILL BE RAISED
  • 00:08:34.470 --> 00:08:37.340
  • TO EXPERIENCE GOD'S JUDGMENT.
  • 00:08:37.373 --> 00:08:40.042
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WE COME TO,
  • 00:08:40.076 --> 00:08:41.844
  • WHEN WE COME TO VERSE SEVEN.
  • 00:08:41.877 --> 00:08:44.747
  • BEFORE, JOHN DESCRIBES
  • 00:08:44.780 --> 00:08:47.149
  • THE FINAL JUDGMENTOF THE UNSAVED
  • 00:08:47.183 --> 00:08:49.852
  • IN ONE OF THE MOST TERRIFYINGPASSAGES OF ALL THE BIBLE.
  • 00:08:49.885 --> 00:08:54.023
  • JOHN DESCRIBES ACURIOUS HAPPENING
  • 00:08:54.056 --> 00:08:56.692
  • THAT OCCURS AT THEEND OF THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:08:56.726 --> 00:09:00.429
  • LOOK AT THIS IN VERSE SEVEN,
  • 00:09:00.463 --> 00:09:02.298
  • "AND WHEN THE THOUSANDYEARS ARE COMPLETED,
  • 00:09:02.331 --> 00:09:05.134
  • SATAN WILL BERELEASED FROM PRISON."
  • 00:09:05.167 --> 00:09:07.770
  • IN FACT, VERSE THREE SAYS,
  • 00:09:07.803 --> 00:09:09.205
  • HE MUST BE RELEASEDAFTER THE THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 00:09:09.238 --> 00:09:13.175
  • WHY?
  • 00:09:13.209 --> 00:09:14.110
  • TO LEAD ONE FINAL REBELLION.
  • 00:09:14.143 --> 00:09:16.646
  • LOOK AT VERSE EIGHT,
  • 00:09:16.679 --> 00:09:17.913
  • WHO ARE THE PARTICIPANTSIN THIS REBELLION?
  • 00:09:17.947 --> 00:09:20.650
  • SATAN WILL COME OUTTO DECEIVE THE NATIONS
  • 00:09:20.683 --> 00:09:23.786
  • WHICH ARE IN THE FOURCORNERS OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:09:23.819 --> 00:09:26.222
  • GOG AND MAGOG,
  • 00:09:26.255 --> 00:09:28.758
  • TO GATHER THEMTOGETHER FOR THE WAR;
  • 00:09:28.791 --> 00:09:31.360
  • THE NUMBER OF THEM IS LIKETHE SAND OF THE SEASHORE."
  • 00:09:31.394 --> 00:09:36.065
  • NOW THE TERMS, GOG AND MAGOG
  • 00:09:36.098 --> 00:09:37.867
  • SOMETIMES IN THE BIBLEREFER TO SPECIFIC NATIONS
  • 00:09:37.900 --> 00:09:42.405
  • BUT HERE IS JUST AGENERIC REFERENCE
  • 00:09:42.438 --> 00:09:44.907
  • SHOWING THAT THEREWILL BE PEOPLE
  • 00:09:44.940 --> 00:09:47.076
  • FROM EVERY NATION OF THE WORLD
  • 00:09:47.109 --> 00:09:48.744
  • WHO WILL CHOOSE TOREBEL AGAINST GOD.
  • 00:09:48.778 --> 00:09:52.648
  • THIS IS THE FINAL REBELLIONOF MAN AGAINST GOD.
  • 00:09:52.682 --> 00:09:56.185
  • NOW, REMEMBER THIS HAPPENSAT THE END OF THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:09:56.218 --> 00:09:59.255
  • SO THE NATURAL QUESTION IS,
  • 00:09:59.288 --> 00:10:01.290
  • WHO IS IT AT THE ENDOF THE MILLENNIUM
  • 00:10:01.323 --> 00:10:04.894
  • THAT WOULD CHOOSE
  • 00:10:04.927 --> 00:10:06.128
  • TO REBEL AGAINST GODAND FOLLOW SATAN?
  • 00:10:06.162 --> 00:10:09.699
  • WELL, THE ANSWERTO THAT IS FOUND
  • 00:10:09.732 --> 00:10:12.401
  • WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:10:12.435 --> 00:10:13.936
  • THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENTGROUPS OF BELIEVERS
  • 00:10:13.969 --> 00:10:16.305
  • WHO ENTER THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:10:16.338 --> 00:10:18.274
  • ONE GROUP IS GOING TOBE PEOPLE LIKE US,
  • 00:10:18.307 --> 00:10:21.544
  • WHO HAVE ALREADY RECEIVEDTHEIR RESURRECTION BODIES.
  • 00:10:21.577 --> 00:10:25.381
  • WE RECEIVED IT EITHER ATTHE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH
  • 00:10:25.414 --> 00:10:28.384
  • OR IF YOU'RE SAVEDDURING THE TRIBULATION
  • 00:10:28.417 --> 00:10:30.986
  • AND YOU'RE MURDERED,
  • 00:10:31.020 --> 00:10:33.823
  • YOU'LL RECEIVE IT AT THESECOND COMING OF CHRIST.
  • 00:10:33.856 --> 00:10:36.892
  • BUT THERE'LL BE AWHOLE GROUP OF US,
  • 00:10:36.926 --> 00:10:39.095
  • WHO ARE IN OURRESURRECTION BODIES.
  • 00:10:39.128 --> 00:10:42.031
  • BUT THE SECOND GROUP OF PEOPLEWHO ENTER THE MILLENNIUM
  • 00:10:42.064 --> 00:10:46.001
  • ARE THOSE WHO ENTER INTHEIR NATURAL BODIES.
  • 00:10:46.035 --> 00:10:52.408
  • THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO WERESAVED DURING THE TRIBULATION,
  • 00:10:52.441 --> 00:10:54.910
  • THEY WEREN'T MURDERED,
  • 00:10:54.944 --> 00:10:56.645
  • THEY SURVIVED THE TRIBULATION,
  • 00:10:56.679 --> 00:10:58.581
  • WITH THEIR FAITH INTACTAND THEIR BODIES INTACT.
  • 00:10:58.614 --> 00:11:01.951
  • AND IT IS THOSE CHRISTIANSIN THEIR NATURAL BODIES,
  • 00:11:01.984 --> 00:11:05.988
  • WHO DO WHAT PEOPLE DOIN THEIR NATURAL BODIES.
  • 00:11:06.021 --> 00:11:09.859
  • THEY GET MARRIED,
  • 00:11:09.892 --> 00:11:10.860
  • THEY PROCREATE,
  • 00:11:10.893 --> 00:11:12.128
  • THEY HAVE CHILDREN.
  • 00:11:12.161 --> 00:11:14.230
  • AND SO THERE WILL BE PEOPLEBORN DURING THE MILLENNIUM
  • 00:11:14.263 --> 00:11:18.634
  • AND IT'S THESE PEOPLE BORN
  • 00:11:18.667 --> 00:11:20.369
  • DURING THAT THOUSANDYEAR PERIOD OF TIME,
  • 00:11:20.402 --> 00:11:23.172
  • WILL HAVE TO FACE THEDECISION WE ALL FACE
  • 00:11:23.205 --> 00:11:25.975
  • AND THAT IS WHETHER OR NOTTO FOLLOW GOD OR SATAN.
  • 00:11:26.008 --> 00:11:30.246
  • AND STRANGELY,
  • 00:11:30.279 --> 00:11:31.781
  • THERE WILL BE SOME PEOPLEBORN DURING THE MILLENNIUM
  • 00:11:31.814 --> 00:11:35.351
  • WHO WILL ACTUALLY CHOOSE
  • 00:11:35.384 --> 00:11:36.952
  • AFTER EXPERIENCINGTHE RULE OF CHRIST,
  • 00:11:36.986 --> 00:11:39.455
  • THE PERFECT RULE OF CHRIST.
  • 00:11:39.488 --> 00:11:41.090
  • THEY WILL CHOOSE TO FOLLOW SATAN
  • 00:11:41.123 --> 00:11:43.025
  • IN THAT FINAL REBELLION.
  • 00:11:43.058 --> 00:11:44.660
  • THE ONLY EXPLANATION FOR THOSEWHO REBEL AGAINST GOD,
  • 00:11:44.693 --> 00:11:48.430
  • ARE GOING TO BE THE CHILDREN
  • 00:11:48.464 --> 00:11:50.399
  • OF THOSE WHO ARE BORNDURING THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:11:50.432 --> 00:11:55.037
  • VERSE 9, LOOK AT THE RESULT OFTHIS REBELLION.
  • 00:11:55.070 --> 00:11:59.208
  • VERSE 9, "AND THEYCAME UP ON THE
  • 00:11:59.241 --> 00:12:00.509
  • BROAD PLAIN OF THE EARTH
  • 00:12:00.543 --> 00:12:02.711
  • AND SURROUNDED THE CAMP OF THESAINTS AND THE BELOVED CITY,
  • 00:12:02.745 --> 00:12:06.015
  • AND FIRE CAME DOWN FROMHEAVEN AND DEVOURED THEM."
  • 00:12:06.048 --> 00:12:09.885
  • IN THESE FINAL DAYS,
  • 00:12:09.919 --> 00:12:11.687
  • THERE ARE GOING TO BE SOME WHOARE BORN DURING THE MILLENNIUM,
  • 00:12:11.720 --> 00:12:14.990
  • WHO WILL CHOOSE TO FOLLOW SATAN.
  • 00:12:15.024 --> 00:12:18.194
  • AND WE SEE THAT JUDGMENT OFTHE SINNERS IN VERSE 9.
  • 00:12:18.227 --> 00:12:21.297
  • AND THEN NOTICE IN VERSE 10,
  • 00:12:21.330 --> 00:12:22.765
  • THE JUDGMENT OF SATAN,
  • 00:12:22.798 --> 00:12:24.567
  • "AND THE DEVIL WHO DECEIVED THEM
  • 00:12:24.600 --> 00:12:28.070
  • WAS THROWN INTOTHE LAKE OF FIRE,
  • 00:12:28.103 --> 00:12:30.606
  • WHERE THE BEAST AND THEFALSE PROPHET ARE ALSO
  • 00:12:30.639 --> 00:12:34.243
  • AND THEY WILL BETORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT
  • 00:12:34.276 --> 00:12:37.813
  • FOREVER AND EVER."
  • 00:12:37.847 --> 00:12:39.915
  • NOW REMEMBER AT THEBEGINNING OF THE MILLENNIUM
  • 00:12:39.949 --> 00:12:41.951
  • WHEN CHRIST RETURNS TO EARTH,
  • 00:12:41.984 --> 00:12:44.153
  • REMEMBER WHAT HAPPEN?
  • 00:12:44.186 --> 00:12:45.454
  • THE ANGEL SEES THE BEASTAND THE FALSE PROPHET,
  • 00:12:45.487 --> 00:12:49.558
  • THE ANTICHRIST ANDTHE FALSE PROPHET
  • 00:12:49.592 --> 00:12:51.360
  • AND DROP THEM INTOTHE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:12:51.393 --> 00:12:53.762
  • THE ETERNAL PLACE OF TORMENT
  • 00:12:53.796 --> 00:12:55.764
  • FOR THOSE WHO DIEAPART FROM CHRIST.
  • 00:12:55.798 --> 00:12:58.434
  • BUT AT THAT VERY SAMETIME SATAN WAS TAKEN
  • 00:12:58.467 --> 00:13:02.037
  • AND HE WASN'T PUT INTO THELAKE OF FIRE AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:13:02.071 --> 00:13:05.040
  • HE WAS HELD INTO THE ABYSS,
  • 00:13:05.074 --> 00:13:07.343
  • TO BE HELD THERE FORA THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 00:13:07.376 --> 00:13:10.679
  • AND AT THE END OF A THOUSANDYEARS HE'S RELEASED,
  • 00:13:10.713 --> 00:13:13.015
  • HE LEADS THE REBELLION,
  • 00:13:13.048 --> 00:13:14.149
  • THEN FINALLY, GOD SAYS ENOUGH
  • 00:13:14.183 --> 00:13:17.052
  • AND HE TAKES SATAN HERE
  • 00:13:17.086 --> 00:13:18.621
  • AND WHAT DOES HE DO?
  • 00:13:18.654 --> 00:13:19.588
  • HE TAKES HIM OUT OF THE ABYSS
  • 00:13:19.622 --> 00:13:21.557
  • AND HE DROPS HIM INTOTHE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:13:21.590 --> 00:13:25.361
  • AND IT SAYS, THESAME LAKE OF FIRE
  • 00:13:25.394 --> 00:13:28.063
  • WHERE THE BEAST ANDTHE FALSE PROPHET ARE.
  • 00:13:28.097 --> 00:13:32.001
  • I WANT YOU TO CIRCLETHAT WORD ARE.
  • 00:13:32.034 --> 00:13:36.138
  • SOME PEOPLE THINK,WELL, HELL'S BAD.
  • 00:13:36.171 --> 00:13:38.407
  • IT'S CERTAINLY A TERRIBLE PLACE
  • 00:13:38.440 --> 00:13:40.109
  • BUT IF I END UP THERE,
  • 00:13:40.142 --> 00:13:41.343
  • I'LL BE THROWN IN THELAKE OF FIRE, BURNED UP
  • 00:13:41.377 --> 00:13:43.879
  • AND I WON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:13:43.913 --> 00:13:45.814
  • NO, THE TORMENT OF THELAKE OF FIRE OR HELL,
  • 00:13:45.848 --> 00:13:49.485
  • IS FOREVER AND EVER.
  • 00:13:49.518 --> 00:13:52.354
  • AND HERE'S A GOOD PROOF OF THAT.
  • 00:13:52.388 --> 00:13:55.391
  • THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET
  • 00:13:55.424 --> 00:13:57.192
  • HAD BEEN PUT INTOTHE LAKE OF FIRE
  • 00:13:57.226 --> 00:13:59.061
  • A THOUSAND YEARSBEFORE THIS OCCURS.
  • 00:13:59.094 --> 00:14:03.198
  • A THOUSAND YEARS
  • 00:14:03.232 --> 00:14:04.633
  • AFTER THEY HAVE BEENPLACED IN THE LAKE OF FIRE
  • 00:14:04.667 --> 00:14:07.169
  • AND SATAN IS PUT THERE,
  • 00:14:07.202 --> 00:14:08.971
  • JOHN SAYS,
  • 00:14:09.004 --> 00:14:10.506
  • "IT'S THE SAME PLACE WHERE THEBEAST AND FALSE PROPHET ARE."
  • 00:14:10.539 --> 00:14:14.109
  • NOT WHERE THEY WERE,
  • 00:14:14.143 --> 00:14:16.045
  • IT'S WHERE THEY ARE.
  • 00:14:16.078 --> 00:14:17.346
  • THEY CONTINUE TO LIVEIN THAT LAKE OF FIRE,
  • 00:14:17.379 --> 00:14:19.915
  • A THOUSAND YEARS LATER.
  • 00:14:19.949 --> 00:14:22.117
  • AND THEY WILL BE TORMENTED THERE
  • 00:14:22.151 --> 00:14:24.053
  • DAY AND NIGHT, FOREVERAND EVER AND EVER.
  • 00:14:24.086 --> 00:14:29.191
  • SATAN, THE BEAST, THEFALSE PROPHET,
  • 00:14:29.224 --> 00:14:31.827
  • ARE NOT THE ONLYOCCUPANTS THERE.
  • 00:14:31.860 --> 00:14:34.830
  • LOOK AT VERSE 11,
  • 00:14:34.863 --> 00:14:36.966
  • THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT
  • 00:14:36.999 --> 00:14:39.601
  • THAT WILL SEND UNBELIEVERS TOTHAT TERRIBLE PLACE AS WELL.
  • 00:14:39.635 --> 00:14:43.005
  • CHAPTER 20:11, JOHN SAYS,
  • 00:14:43.038 --> 00:14:46.375
  • "THEN I SAW A GREAT WHITETHRONE AND HIM WHO SAT UPON IT,
  • 00:14:46.408 --> 00:14:51.046
  • FROM WHOSE PRESENCE EARTHAND HEAVEN FLED AWAY,
  • 00:14:51.080 --> 00:14:53.816
  • AND NO PLACE WASFOUND FOR THEM."
  • 00:14:53.849 --> 00:14:56.085
  • YOU KNOW THERE ARE MANYREFERENCES TO THE THRONE
  • 00:14:56.118 --> 00:14:58.854
  • OF GOD IN THE BOOK OFREVELATION.
  • 00:14:58.887 --> 00:15:01.123
  • WE SEE 30 REFERENCES.REMEMBER IN CHAPTER 4
  • 00:15:01.156 --> 00:15:03.592
  • AND JOHN SAYS, "AND I SAWHIM WHO SAT UPON THE THRONE."
  • 00:15:03.625 --> 00:15:07.396
  • THE ONE WHO SAT UP ON THETHRONE WAS NOT GOD, THE FATHER,
  • 00:15:07.429 --> 00:15:11.000
  • IT IS JESUS CHRIST, THE SON.REMEMBER IN JOHN 5:22,
  • 00:15:11.033 --> 00:15:15.404
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, JESUS SAID,"FOR THE FATHER JUDGES NO MAN,
  • 00:15:15.437 --> 00:15:19.842
  • BUT HE HAS COMMITTED ALLJUDGMENT UNTO THE SON."
  • 00:15:19.875 --> 00:15:23.879
  • HAVE YOU EVER HEARD PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:15:23.912 --> 00:15:25.381
  • "WELL, I DON'T BELIEVE IN AJESUS WHO WOULD JUDGE PEOPLE."
  • 00:15:25.414 --> 00:15:27.449
  • WELL, YOU DON'T BELIEVEIN THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:15:27.483 --> 00:15:30.019
  • JESUS IS GOING TOPRESIDE OVER THIS FINAL
  • 00:15:30.052 --> 00:15:32.821
  • GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.
  • 00:15:32.855 --> 00:15:34.690
  • IN ACTS 17:31, LUKE SAYS,
  • 00:15:34.723 --> 00:15:37.192
  • "GOD HAS FIXED A DAY
  • 00:15:37.226 --> 00:15:38.660
  • IN WHICH HE WILL JUDGETHE WORLD IN RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:15:38.694 --> 00:15:43.198
  • THROUGH A MAN HE HAS APPOINTED."
  • 00:15:43.232 --> 00:15:45.667
  • AND THAT MAN IS CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:15:45.701 --> 00:15:48.904
  • WHO ARE THE SUBJECTS OF THISGREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT?
  • 00:15:48.937 --> 00:15:51.440
  • LOOK AT VERSE 12 AND VERSE 13,
  • 00:15:51.473 --> 00:15:53.475
  • "AND I SAW THE DEAD,THE GREAT AND THE SMALL,
  • 00:15:53.509 --> 00:15:56.845
  • STANDING BEFORE THE THRONE,
  • 00:15:56.879 --> 00:15:58.947
  • AND THE SEA GAVE UP THEDEAD WHICH WERE IN IT
  • 00:15:58.981 --> 00:16:01.750
  • AND EARTH, DEATH AND HADES
  • 00:16:01.784 --> 00:16:04.019
  • GAVE UP THE DEADWHICH WERE IN THEM
  • 00:16:04.053 --> 00:16:05.888
  • AND THEY WERE JUDGEDEVERY ONE OF THEM,
  • 00:16:05.921 --> 00:16:07.890
  • ACCORDING TO THEIR DEEDS."
  • 00:16:07.923 --> 00:16:09.691
  • REMEMBER I SAID THESECOND RESURRECTION,
  • 00:16:09.725 --> 00:16:11.660
  • OCCURS ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
  • 00:16:11.693 --> 00:16:13.796
  • THIS IS THE TIMETHAT EVERY UNBELIEVER
  • 00:16:13.829 --> 00:16:15.898
  • WHO HAS EVER LIVEDSINCE THE TIME OF ADAM
  • 00:16:15.931 --> 00:16:18.033

  • AND THE DEAD,

  • NOW, PLEASE STAYWITH ME ON THIS.
  • 00:17:30.973 --> 00:17:33.442
  • SO IMPORTANT YOUUNDERSTAND THIS.
  • 00:17:33.475 --> 00:17:36.078
  • DID YOU KNOW, GOD KEEPS TWOSETS OF BOOKS, SO TO SPEAK?
  • 00:17:36.111 --> 00:17:41.817
  • THERE ARE THE BOOKS
  • 00:17:41.850 --> 00:17:43.452
  • AND THERE IS THE BOOK.

  • THE BOOK IS THELAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE.

  • EVERYBODY'S NAME WASWRITTEN IN THAT BOOK

  • BUT IF LEAVE THISPLANET, IF YOU DIE
  • 00:17:53.595 --> 00:17:59.334
  • BEFORE EVER RECEIVING
  • 00:17:59.368 --> 00:18:01.370
  • THAT GIFT OF FORGIVENESSIN YOUR OWN LIFE,
  • 00:18:01.403 --> 00:18:03.839
  • THE BIBLE SAYS YOURNAME IS BLOTTED OUT

  • OF THE LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE.

  • WERE JUDGED ACCORDINGTO THE BOOKS.
  • 00:18:10.212 --> 00:18:13.448
  • THAT IS ACCORDINGTO THEIR DEEDS.
  • 00:18:13.482 --> 00:18:16.485
  • WHY ARE NON-CHRISTIANSJUDGED BY THEIR WORKS?
  • 00:18:16.518 --> 00:18:20.289
  • TWO REASONS,
  • 00:18:20.322 --> 00:18:21.523
  • FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:18:21.557 --> 00:18:23.058
  • BECAUSE THEY'VE CHOSEN TOBE JUDGED BY THEIR WORKS.
  • 00:18:23.091 --> 00:18:26.061
  • THE UNBELIEVER ISSOMEBODY WHO SAID,
  • 00:18:26.094 --> 00:18:27.829
  • "I DON'T NEED THATGIFT OF FORGIVENESS
  • 00:18:27.863 --> 00:18:30.432
  • THAT CHRIST OFFERS.
  • 00:18:30.465 --> 00:18:31.466
  • I DON'T NEED HIS GRACE."
  • 00:18:31.500 --> 00:18:34.002
  • THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THAT IS,
  • 00:18:34.036 --> 00:18:36.838
  • THE STANDARD OF OUR WORKSIS NOT OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:18:36.872 --> 00:18:40.809
  • IT'S JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF.
  • 00:18:40.842 --> 00:18:43.512
  • HE'S THE STANDARD BYWHICH EVERYBODY IS JUDGED.
  • 00:18:43.545 --> 00:18:46.481
  • AND UNLESS YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESSMEETS HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:18:46.515 --> 00:18:50.018
  • YOU FALL SHORT.
  • 00:18:50.052 --> 00:18:52.554
  • THE REASON THE UNSAVEDARE JUDGED BY THEIR WORKS
  • 00:18:52.588 --> 00:18:56.258
  • IS BECAUSE THEY'VE CHOSEN TO BE.
  • 00:18:56.291 --> 00:18:57.559
  • THE SECOND REASON IS,
  • 00:18:57.593 --> 00:18:58.860
  • THEIR WORKS WILL DETERMINE
  • 00:18:58.894 --> 00:19:00.996
  • THE KIND OF HELLTHAT THEY EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:19:01.029 --> 00:19:04.433
  • I BET YOU HAVEN'THEARD THIS BEFORE.
  • 00:19:04.466 --> 00:19:06.802
  • WE'VE ALREADY SEEN
  • 00:19:06.835 --> 00:19:07.736
  • THERE ARE DEGREES OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:19:07.769 --> 00:19:09.338
  • AFTER WE'RE SAVED,
  • 00:19:09.371 --> 00:19:10.405
  • WHAT KIND OF LIFE WE LEAD
  • 00:19:10.439 --> 00:19:12.574
  • DETERMINES THE KIND OFHEAVEN THAT WE EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:19:12.608 --> 00:19:15.510
  • WE'VE TALKED AT LENGTHABOUT REWARDS IN HEAVEN
  • 00:19:15.544 --> 00:19:17.379
  • BUT DID YOU KNOW,
  • 00:19:17.412 --> 00:19:18.614
  • THERE ARE DEGREESOF HELL AS WELL?
  • 00:19:18.647 --> 00:19:21.416
  • WHERE DO YOU FIND DEGREESOF HELL IN THE BIBLE?
  • 00:19:21.450 --> 00:19:24.953
  • WELL ONE PLACE IS IN THEGOSPEL OF LUKE.
  • 00:19:24.987 --> 00:19:27.256
  • JESUS TALKED ABOUT IT.
  • 00:19:27.289 --> 00:19:30.092
  • YOU REMEMBER THESTORY HE TOLD ABOUT
  • 00:19:30.125 --> 00:19:33.395
  • THE SLAVE WHO WASJUDGED BY HIS MASTER?
  • 00:19:33.428 --> 00:19:40.802
  • THIS IS ONE OF THEMOST INTERESTING
  • 00:19:40.836 --> 00:19:42.437
  • AND FREQUENTLY OVERLOOKEDPASSAGES IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:19:42.471 --> 00:19:45.440
  • LUKE 12:47-48,
  • 00:19:45.474 --> 00:19:48.110
  • JESUS SAID,
  • 00:19:48.143 --> 00:19:49.344
  • "AND THAT SLAVE WHOKNEW HIS MASTER'S WILL
  • 00:19:49.378 --> 00:19:52.247
  • AND DID NOT GET READY OR ACT
  • 00:19:52.281 --> 00:19:54.449
  • IN ACCORDING WITH THAT WILL,
  • 00:19:54.483 --> 00:19:56.251
  • WILL RECEIVE MANY LASHES.
  • 00:19:56.285 --> 00:19:59.254
  • BUT THE ONE WHO DID NOT KNOW IT
  • 00:19:59.288 --> 00:20:00.956
  • AND COMMITTED DEEDSWORTHY OF A FLOGGING,
  • 00:20:00.989 --> 00:20:03.191
  • WILL RECEIVE BUT A FEW LASHES.
  • 00:20:03.225 --> 00:20:06.728
  • FROM EVERYONE WHOHAS BEEN GIVEN MUCH,
  • 00:20:06.762 --> 00:20:10.198
  • MUCH WILL BE REQUIRED.
  • 00:20:10.232 --> 00:20:11.967
  • AND TO WHOM THEY ENTRUSTED MUCH,
  • 00:20:12.000 --> 00:20:13.769
  • OF HIM THEY WILLASK ALL THE MORE."
  • 00:20:13.802 --> 00:20:17.606
  • JESUS SAID A SLAVE,
  • 00:20:17.639 --> 00:20:19.274
  • WHO KNOWS EXACTLY WHATTHE MASTER WANTS HIM TO DO
  • 00:20:19.308 --> 00:20:22.811
  • BUT DECIDES NOT TO DO IT,
  • 00:20:22.844 --> 00:20:24.279
  • HE'S WORTHY OF SEVEREPUNISHMENT, MANY LASHES.
  • 00:20:24.313 --> 00:20:27.983
  • BUT THE ONE WHO DISOBEYSTHE MASTER'S WILL
  • 00:20:28.016 --> 00:20:30.719
  • BUT NEVER REALLY HADKNOWLEDGE OF THAT WILL,
  • 00:20:30.752 --> 00:20:33.622
  • HE'LL RECEIVE A FEWLASHES. IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:20:33.655 --> 00:20:37.392
  • THE JUDGMENT WILL BE BASEDON HOW MUCH KNOWLEDGE HE HAD.
  • 00:20:37.426 --> 00:20:43.131
  • BY THE WAY, THAT MEANS EVERYONE OF YOU SITTING HERE TODAY
  • 00:20:43.165 --> 00:20:45.267
  • EVERY ONE OF YOUWATCHING ON TELEVISION,
  • 00:20:45.300 --> 00:20:47.135

  • MUCH AS REQUIRED OF YOU,
  • 00:20:49.771 --> 00:20:51.273
  • BECAUSE YOU HAVE HEARD THETRUE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:20:51.306 --> 00:20:56.111
  • THAT'S THE BASISOF OUR JUDGMENT.
  • 00:20:56.144 --> 00:20:58.480
  • THE UNBELIEVERS WILL BE JUDGED,
  • 00:20:58.513 --> 00:21:00.082
  • ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS.
  • 00:21:00.115 --> 00:21:02.284
  • AND WHAT IS THE RESULTOF THAT JUDGMENT?
  • 00:21:02.317 --> 00:21:04.086
  • LOOK AT THIS, VERSE 15,
  • 00:21:04.119 --> 00:21:05.787
  • "AND IF ANYONE'S NAME WAS NOTWRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE,
  • 00:21:05.821 --> 00:21:10.092
  • HE WAS THROWN INTOTHE LAKE OF FIRE."
  • 00:21:10.125 --> 00:21:15.964
  • JESUS CALLED THIS PLACE GEHENNA,
  • 00:21:15.997 --> 00:21:19.101
  • THE VALLEY OF HINNOM.
  • 00:21:19.134 --> 00:21:20.602
  • IN THE OLD TESTAMENT TIMES,
  • 00:21:20.635 --> 00:21:22.003
  • THAT SAME VALLEY WAS THESITE WHERE ISRAELITES,
  • 00:21:22.037 --> 00:21:26.274
  • FOLLOWING THE PAGAN GOD MOLOCH,
  • 00:21:26.308 --> 00:21:28.176
  • WOULD BURN THEIRINFANT CHILDREN ALIVE.
  • 00:21:28.210 --> 00:21:31.680
  • IT WAS A HORRIBLE PLACE.
  • 00:21:31.713 --> 00:21:34.082
  • IN FACT, JESUSDESCRIBED IT AS A PLACE
  • 00:21:34.116 --> 00:21:36.918
  • JUST LIKE GEHENNA, HELL,
  • 00:21:36.952 --> 00:21:40.455
  • OF WEEPING AND WAILINGAND OF GNASHING OF TEETH.
  • 00:21:40.489 --> 00:21:44.726
  • THERE WAS MO MORE CURSEDPLACE THAN GEHENNA
  • 00:21:44.760 --> 00:21:48.130
  • WHY WOULD ANYONE REJECTTHE GRACE OF JESUS CHRIST?
  • 00:21:48.163 --> 00:21:54.803

  • "I WOULD RATHER BEDAMNED AND GO TO HELL
  • 00:21:56.838 --> 00:22:00.342
  • THAN EVER TRUST JESUSFOR MY FORGIVENESS?"
  • 00:22:00.375 --> 00:22:03.612
  • WHY WOULD ANY SANEPERSON SAY SUCH A THING?
  • 00:22:03.645 --> 00:22:07.416
  • THERE'S ONLY ONE REASON,
