Discussion for Revelation 20

  • Matt
    Those who do not overcome during the first resurrection will have to be taught by God's election during the Millennium (1,000 years). If they fail to follow God afterwards, they will follow Satan and the other ungodly souls into hell. Our Lord is VERY patient, and He does NOT wish to send anyone to hell but Satan. That is why He gives every soul a fair chance to accept Him. 2nd Peter chapter 3
  • Matt
    The rest of the 'dead' are the spiritually dead: those deceived by Satan. The antichrist is the devil: Satan. Those who believe they are going to be raptured are the ones who are spiritually dead. The Lord made it clear His disciples would be going through the tribulation in Matthew ch. 24. Satan's children are setting things up for his arrival. You have to know who the Kenites are. John 8 v.44

    Who are the rest of the dead in vs of rev. 20?
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Amen, Paul ! It's difficult to get people to comprehend that, especially those raised in church. They are actually arresting ministers in Germany for speaking TRUTH. There's already a county in NM that can revoke a preachers govt. license if the "COUNCIL" disapproves of the message from his pulpit. God help us. It has begun........
  • Paul
    Gods Sabbath is the mark of his authority meant to be worshiped (forehead) and practiced (hand).

    Conversely the mark of the beast is her (papacy) authority and that is their Sunday law.
    When you will not be able to buy ot sell anything. The EU has already put this into practice.

    The 144,000 I think symbolic and not a literal number.

    Grace be with you all.
