John 4:23-24

 

Seven years after the rapture Jesus will come to the earth, put the devil in a bottomless pit, and rule over the earth for 1000 years. This is called the millennial Reign of Jesus. During this time life on earth will be good. At the end of the Millennial Reign of Jesus, the devil will be loosed. He will be defeated in a war with Jesus and thrown into the lake of fire forever.

Revelation 20:1-3 NKJV

“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 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.”

After that God will judge sinners – those who have not accepted Jesus as their Savior and Lord. This judgment is known as the Great White Throne Judgment of God. The sinners names will not be found in the Book of Life so God will have to punish them and send them away from His presence forever. They will be thrown into the lake of fire with the devil forever and ever.

Revelation 20:11-15 NKJV

“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”

The lake of fire is a very dark place which has a fire that never goes out. It is a place of great torment with crying and groaning. When we accept Jesus as our Savior our name is written in the Book of Life. This is the only way to go to heaven instead of hell / lake of fire. To accept Jesus we must pray admitting we have sinned, believe Jesus died and rose again for our sins, and confess our sins and ask Jesus to forgive us.

2 Peter 3:14 NKJV

“Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless”

Revelation 21:7-8 NKJV

“He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

After accepting Jesus as our Savior we must live our lives every day doing what Jesus would want us too. When Jesus returns we must be without spot, blemish, or blame.

Revelation 21:1-4 NKJV

“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. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

After the final judgment, the great white throne judgment, God promised He would make a new heaven, a new Jerusalem, and a new earth.

2 Peter 3:5-13 NKJV

“For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”

Jesus will give His millennial kingdom to God the Father, the supreme ruler. All true Christians will live with God forever in a beautiful new universe. This new heaven will be so beautiful and the most wonderful place to live. Revelation 21 gives us several descriptions of it. There will be no more tears, no sun or moon, no more mourning, no more pain, no night or darkness, walls of precious gems, gates of pearl, streets of gold, and a river of life. And the best part of all is that we will live there forever with God.

The new Jerusalem, will come down out of heaven and will shine with the glory of God. The city will be made of gold and will be decorated with precious jewels, and the streets will be made of pure gold, as transparent glass.

Revelation 21:18-21 NKJV

“The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.”

It will have a great wall with 12 gates made of pearls. The city will not need any light from the sun or moon because Jesus, the Lamb of God will be the light.

Revelation 21:22-23 NKJV

“But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.”

Revelation 22:1-5 NKJV

“And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.”

Down the middle of the city will flow the river of life, and on each side of it will grow trees of life. The throne of God will be in the city, and people will worship God forever. There is so much more about heaven that we don’t know, and it will be far better than we could ever imagine. While here on earth we can draw close to God in true worship, and we’ll begin to experience a small portion of how wonderful it will be when we stand before God in His holy presence.

John 4:23-24 NKJV

“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
