  • THE BEST WAY TO UNDERSTANDTHE MILLENNIUM IS
  • 00:11:36.485 --> 00:11:39.421
  • IT IS A RENOVATION OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:11:39.455 --> 00:11:41.757
  • NOT A RECREATION OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:11:41.791 --> 00:11:44.360

  • IT IS A RENOVATION,NOT A RECREATION.
  • 00:12:04.246 --> 00:12:07.383
  • BUT THERE IS A TIME COMINGWHEN THIS ENTIRE WORLD
  • 00:12:07.416 --> 00:12:10.352
  • IS GOING TO BE RAISEDCOMPLETELY, DESTROYED,
  • 00:12:10.386 --> 00:12:13.289

  • THE MILLENNIUM IS THERENOVATION OF THE EARTH.

  • SATAN IS GOING TO BE RELEASEDFOR A LITTLE WHILE.
  • 00:12:23.732 --> 00:12:26.368

  • ONLY BELIEVERS WILL ENTERINTO THAT MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:12:33.642 --> 00:12:36.512
  • REMEMBER AT THE ENDOF THE TRIBULATION,
  • 00:12:36.545 --> 00:12:38.080
  • NOT EVERY UNBELIEVEROR BELIEVER IS DEAD.
  • 00:12:38.113 --> 00:12:41.016
  • THERE'LL BE SOME BELIEVERSWHO SURVIVE THE TRIBULATION.
  • 00:12:41.050 --> 00:12:45.187
  • THERE'LL BE SOME UNBELIEVERSWHO SURVIVE THE TRIBULATION.
  • 00:12:45.221 --> 00:12:49.425

  • THE BELIEVERS WHOSURVIVE THE TRIBULATION
  • 00:12:56.699 --> 00:12:58.701
  • WILL ENTER IN THEIRNATURAL BODIES.
  • 00:12:58.734 --> 00:13:01.570
  • THAT MEANS THEY'LLBE ABLE TO REPRODUCE,
  • 00:13:01.604 --> 00:13:03.672
  • HAVE CHILDREN DURINGTHE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:13:03.706 --> 00:13:06.275
  • THEY WON'T DIE WHENTHEY'RE AN INFANT,
  • 00:13:06.308 --> 00:13:07.843
  • THEY'LL LIVE TO BE AHUNDRED YEARS OF AGE.
  • 00:13:07.877 --> 00:13:09.612
  • BUT THERE WILL BE CHILDRENBORN DURING THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:13:09.645 --> 00:13:13.082

  • 00:13:13.115 --> 00:13:14.683
  • IN OUR NEW RESURRECTEDBODIES WE GOT AT THE RAPTURE.

  • WE DON'T REPRODUCE.
  • 00:13:17.119 --> 00:13:19.355
  • BUT THOSE IN THOSENATURAL BODIES DO.
  • 00:13:19.388 --> 00:13:23.292
  • AND IT IS IMPORTANT THATEVERY PERSON BE GIVEN A CHANCE
  • 00:13:23.325 --> 00:13:27.162
  • OF WHETHER TO FOLLOWJESUS OR TO FOLLOW SATAN.
  • 00:13:27.196 --> 00:13:30.432
  • AND SO AT THE END,GOD'S GOING TO LOOSE SATAN
  • 00:13:30.466 --> 00:13:33.669
  • FOR ANOTHER PERIOD OF TIME.
  • 00:13:33.702 --> 00:13:35.604
  • AND AMAZINGLY, SOME OFTHOSE CHILDREN WHO GROW UP
  • 00:13:35.638 --> 00:13:38.240
  • INTO ADULTS DURINGTHE MILLENNIUM
  • 00:13:38.274 --> 00:13:41.377
  • WILL ACTUALLY CHOOSE TOFOLLOW SATAN INSTEAD OF JESUS
  • 00:13:41.410 --> 00:13:44.246
  • IN THAT REBELLION.
  • 00:13:44.280 --> 00:13:46.282
  • AND THAT IS THE FINAL REBELLION,
  • 00:13:46.315 --> 00:13:49.118
  • SATAN MUST BE RELEASEDFOR A LITTLE WHILE.
  • 00:13:49.151 --> 00:13:52.688

  • NOTICE WHO THE SUBJECTOF THIS JUDGMENT IS.
  • 00:14:12.541 --> 00:14:14.843
  • THIS IS THE JUDGMENTFOR UNBELIEVERS,
  • 00:14:14.877 --> 00:14:18.347
  • EVERY NON-CHRISTIANWHO HAS EVER LIVED.
  • 00:14:18.380 --> 00:14:21.483
  • REVELATION 20:13 SAYS, "ANDTHE SEA GAVE UP THE DEAD

  • "WHICH WERE IN THEM."
  • 00:14:28.791 --> 00:14:31.060
  • REMEMBER HADES IS THE PLACETHAT THE UNBELIEVER GOES
  • 00:14:31.093 --> 00:14:34.263
  • WHEN HE DIES.
  • 00:14:34.296 --> 00:14:35.664
  • IF YOU'RE NOT A CHRISTIANAND YOU GET KILLED
  • 00:14:35.698 --> 00:14:37.132

  • THE REAL PART OFYOU, GOES TO HADES.
  • 00:14:43.672 --> 00:14:45.841
  • IT IS A PLACE OFINTENSE SUFFERING.
  • 00:14:45.874 --> 00:14:48.944
  • JESUS TALKED ABOUTIT IN LUKE 16,
  • 00:14:48.978 --> 00:14:50.879
  • THE PARABLE OF LAZARUSAND THE RICH MAN.
  • 00:14:50.913 --> 00:14:53.182
  • THE RICH MAN DIEDAND HE WENT WHERE?
  • 00:14:53.215 --> 00:14:55.017
  • TO HADES.
  • 00:14:55.050 --> 00:14:56.285
  • AND HE SAID, "I'M IN THEAGONY IN THESE FLAMES."
  • 00:14:56.318 --> 00:14:59.755
  • IT IS THE HOLDING PLACE, BUTIT'S A PLACE OF SUFFERING
  • 00:14:59.788 --> 00:15:02.591
  • FOR THE UNSAVED UNTILTHEIR FINAL JUDGMENT.
  • 00:15:02.624 --> 00:15:05.394
  • "THE SEA GAVE UP THEDEAD, AND DEATH AND HADES

  • HOW WILL UNBELIEVERS BE JUDGED?
  • 00:15:11.633 --> 00:15:14.536
  • BY THEIR OWN CHOICE, THEYWILL BE JUDGED BY THEIR WORKS.
  • 00:15:14.570 --> 00:15:17.339
  • VERSE 13 SAYS, "AND THEY WEREJUDGED, EVERY ONE OF THEM,

  • "ACCORDING TO THEIR DEEDS."
  • 00:15:20.242 --> 00:15:22.478
  • WHY ARE THEY JUDGEDBY THEIR WORKS?
  • 00:15:22.511 --> 00:15:24.179
  • BECAUSE THAT'S HOW ANUNBELIEVER WANTS TO BE JUDGED.
  • 00:15:24.213 --> 00:15:26.548
  • HE SAID, "I'M AGOOD ENOUGH PERSON.
  • 00:15:26.582 --> 00:15:28.417
  • "I DON'T NEED THEFORGIVENESS OF JESUS CHRIST.

  • "MAYBE NOT PERFECT, BUT GOODENOUGH TO GET INTO HEAVEN."
  • 00:15:32.187 --> 00:15:35.657
  • SO JESUS SAYS, "FINE, WE'LLJUDGE YOU BY YOUR WORKS."
  • 00:15:35.691 --> 00:15:39.161
  • UNFORTUNATELY, THE STANDARDIS NOT OTHER PEOPLE
