The end is coming! I mean, not the end of the world, the end of the Revelation seminar is coming.
As always, please read Rev20 before listening to the lecture.
The lecturer of today’s lecture is Lee Young-noh, Busan James Tribe leader.
As you know, the book of Revelation is the prophecy about what will happen at Jesus’ second coming. But did you know THIS? The book is prophesying about even the events that will happen after 1,000 years from Jesus’ second coming! Did you hear me? 1,000 years!
Rev 20 happens Rev19, the wedding banquet of the Lamb. The spirits, who were beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus, and those who didn’t worship the beast and the idol and didn’t receive the mark of the beast live and reign for 1,000 years. After that 1,000 years, a judge is held and the sentences are divided into two: the eternal life or the eternal punishment.
The beginning of the Rev20 starts with an angel holding a key and a chain. The angel captures the dragon with the chain, throws it into Abyss, then locks the door of the Abyss. This means the dragon, who is Satan (Rev12:9), the ancient serpent of Eden (Gn3:1), and the sinned angel (2Pet2:4), is revealed who he is and what he had done through the word of testimony. Even more, the angel prevented the dragon from escaping the Abyss by locking and sealing the door.
Then, there are people with authority, who are sitting on the thrones, judging people. They’re the 12 tribe leaders (yes, the people you’ve been meeting as lecturers!) of New Spiritual Israel working with Jesus’ 12 disciples. Also, all spirits and flesh who were sitting on the thrones in Rev4. They judge with the word written in the Bible (Jn12:48).
The first resurrection happens in this chapter, too. The martyr spirits are the beheaded spirits (Rev6:9, 1The4:14-16, Rev19:17). Flesh who are getting married with these spirits are the people who didn’t worship the beast and the idol and didn’t receive the mark of the beast. They’re the people who overcame the destroyers who had devoured the first tabernacle. They didn’t follow the false pastors and didn’t accept the false doctrines as the truth.
When Revelation is fulfilled, these spirits and flesh become one and reign for 1,000 years with Jesus (Jn11:25-26, 1Cor15:51-54). They receive the blessing: eternal life. They’re free from the second death, which is being punished in hell after people die physically.
In this peaceful 1,000 years, Satan is trapped in Abyss and the first resurrected people reign like kings. After 1,000 years, Satan is released from Abyss and deceives Gog and Magog. These people don’t belong to God and who are outside of the city (Rev22:15). They march to God’s beloved camp and surround it. This means they try to fight the congregation members in the city. They will be devoured by the fire came down from heaven.
And the devil, the beast, and the false prophet are thrown into the lake of burning sulfur. The lake of burning sulfur is the second death (Rev20:14).
You may have noticed, that there’s no record that some people in the city followed Gog and Magog. This is because people in the city already knew when Satan is released from the prison, so they were not deceived.
Then John saw a great white throne and a person sitting on it. A white throne implies it’s righteous and clean. A person sitting on it is God. He judges the dead. The dead are the spirits whose bodies died physically from the creation of the world. They’re judged according to the books, that are, 66 books of the Bible (Dan7:10) and what they’ve done. In Rom14:11-12, the sins of the people are recorded in their own bodies. Those whose names are not written in the book of life, they’re thrown into the lake of fire. The book of life is the registration book of the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony, which is led by the one who overcomes (Rev3:12, 21, Rev15:5). The judged people will live forever or receive eternal punishment.
The sea, the death, and Hades give up the dead from them. Those from the sea are the people who died in the world (Dan7:3, 17). Those from the death and Hades are people who had belonged to Satan, who has the power of death (Heb2:14).
The reason why the lake of fire is the second death is, that it’s hell where the spirits are punished after their bodies died. The result of those whose names are not written in the book of life is being thrown into the lake of fire.
Lee Young-noh, Busan James Tribe leader closed the lecture by saying, “If we understand and believe the word of Revelation that had been fulfilled today, we will become one in God. All pastors attending the seminar, now I hope that we can become one in God, Jesus, and the word, transcending the national borders, races, and religions. WE ARE ONE!”
