New Heavens and New Earth #8

This age will come to and end

“Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Booths.” (Zechariah 14:16 NASB) This is a clear explanation of where unregenerate people (those who have not been born-again) come from.  They are the “ANY WHO ARE LEFT” who will live long lives giving birth to generations. (Isaiah 65:19-23)

Like the Garden of Eden

God, in His grace will spare some from the nations. They will prosper under Christ’s dominion of peace as they repopulate the nations. Once again, as with Adam and Eve, God will walk among His creation. With personal instruction from the Lord, weekly worship in His presence and attending appointed feasts, one might be led to think faith is longer  necessary. Think again. Adam and Eve lived under perfect circumstances and they lost faith in God. Sadly it will happen again.

“When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, and will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war; the number of them is like the sand of the seashore. And they came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” (Revelation 20:7-10 NASB) 

Judgment will be executed upon all whose name is not written in the Lamb’s book of life.  “And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:15 NASB) Then Comes the New Heavens and New Earth.
