The Second Resurrection and the Great White Throne Judgment

 

(Edition 1.0 20120505-20120505)

 

The Second Resurrection of the Dead and the Great White Throne Judgment is the end of the physical existence as we know it. This takes the sequence from the end of the millennial system through the release of Satan and the General Resurrection of the Dead and the judgment and re-education of all who have ever lived.

The Second Resurrection and the Great White Throne Judgment



The Millennial System                    

On the Tenth of Tishri the Seventh Month in the Sabbath Year of the 49th Year of the 120th Jubilee         called in the old system the year 2026 the Jubilee was blown. The wars of the end had been fought and the Messiah had been sent to save the world from destroying itself.  Satan and the fallen host had been sent to the Bottomless Pit over seven years previously in the Sixth Sabbath cycle from 2013-2019 and the world was brought into subjection by Christ and the elect after the First Resurrection of the Dead (see the paper Heaven, Hell or the First Resurrection of the Dead (No. 143A)).

 

Revelation 20:[1] Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain. [2] And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, [3] and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years were ended. After that he must be loosed for a little while.

 

The First Resurrection then occurred as covered in the previous paper No. 143A:

[4] Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom judgment was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony to Jesus and for the word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life, and reigned with Christ a thousand years. [5] The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection. [6] Blessed and holy is he who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and they shall reign with him a thousand years.

 

The Mystery and the Sun cults and its Trinitarian Sunday worshipping system of Christmas and Easter was removed from the world with its perversions, as had the corrupted system of fundamentalist Islam been destroyed along with all of its sheiks and teachers of Hadithic Islam and its hate. The perversion and corruption of the world had been crushed along with its war machines.

 

The nations’ war machines had been brought to the plains of Megiddo and destroyed in the great plain which now occupied a plain of 66 km in length where the centre of the Mount of Olives once stood.

 

The nations of the world had been brought to subjection in the Vials of the Wrath of God and the reorganisation under the new priesthood of Melchisedek     (see the papers The Seven Trumpets (No. 141); War of Hamon-Gog (No. 294); Advent of the Messiah: Part I (No. 210A) and Advent of the Messiah Part II: Vials of the Wrath of God (No. 210B)).

 

The Temple prophesied by Ezekiel had been built under the Messiah and the new system was put completely in place by the Golden Jubilee of 2077, fifty jubilees from the Restoration under Ezra and Nehemiah (see the paper The Golden Jubilee and the Millennium (No. 300)).                                                                                                  

God’s complete calendar was restored as it had been under the Temple system and the Sabbaths, New Moons and Feasts had been restored under national and individual penalty of famine and the plagues of Egypt (see the paper God’s Calendar (No. 156)).

 

The Restorations of Isaiah chapters 65 and 66 and Zechariah 14 had taken place.

 

Israel had been restored and the Threefold National system spread from Assyria in the North from the Mountains of the Medes or Kurds to the Euphrates and Israel incorporated the lands of Syria and Lebanon, through the lands of Jordan, Israel, Gaza, Edom and Moab, down to the Gulf of Aqaba and to the River of Egypt which had been pushed south to close the tongue of the Red Sea as prophesied. Egypt was incorporated into the tri-nation system based on its own domestic road and transportation system as prophesied.

 

Israel was run by a joint government of the tribal groups from the tribes that occupied the lands from the Euphrates to the River of Egypt, and from the Mediterranean to the Arabian Desert. All religious systems in the Middle East had been eradicated and the Churches of God were set up and governed from Jerusalem.  They were governed by a supreme council of the nations that met each year between the 1st of Tishri and the 22nd of Tishri, the Seventh Month. Each nation that did not keep the Feasts of the Seventh Month got no rain in due season and suffered the plagues of Egypt as nations (Zech. 14:16-19).  Those that did not keep the Sabbaths and New Moons as individuals and as nations died as prophesied in Isaiah 66:23.

 

Christ and the elect, under the direction of God through the Holy Spirit, ruled the nations with a rod of iron. There was one system of government as set down in the Bible for all nations that elected their captains of tens, fifties, hundreds, thousands and divisions (see A3) and there was ONE religion. All other false religious systems had been obliterated over the entire earth over the twenty-five years of the wars of the end from 2001-2026. Over two-thirds of the population of earth were obliterated in these wars and then the remaining third was further reduced in the Vials of the wrath of God because the world would NOT repent.

 

By the establishment of the Millennium with the tribes and nations in their lands there were far less than 500 million left alive.

 

Only then when it became obvious that the nations would starve to death and die out unless they obeyed the Laws of God did they give in and simply keep the Sabbaths, New Moons and Feasts of God. In that way it became obvious that if they wanted water to drink and to water their crops and they wanted the fruit for the healing of the nations they had to obey the laws of God or die.

 

After the 121st Jubilee (called sometimes 2077 under the ancient pagan system which was stamped out) it was easier and easier. 

 

Jubilee by Jubilee the earth became more productive and the whole of mankind was at peace.  No one experienced war anymore and only the old could remember what it was like.

 

The Spirit beings of the First Resurrection ran the earth as the demons were supposed to have done before them under Satan who was the Morning Star of the planet prior to the Advent of Messiah as the New Morning Star.

 

People began to live longer and only died after two jubilees if they were accursed as sinners (Isa. 65:17-25). People began to live a very long time as had the patriarchs. They lived as the days of trees and only sinners died. They became very self-righteous. 

 

The elohim appeared to them and they began to disdain the elect as they had sinned and such sins as were punished with the death of the unrepentant.

 

The elohim had confessed their sins when they appeared and guided the inhabitants of the Millennium.

 

At the end of the thousand years of the Millennium the earth was as lush as the Garden of Eden had been before them at the time of the Creation of Adam. They believed that they knew better than their mentors and the Messiah that redeemed them. They had one language and there was nothing that they might not achieve. They had lost the understanding of the reasons the world had been destroyed previously. 

 

It was now time that God was to test them.  In the Sixth Sabbath cycle at the end of the Millennium in the 140th Jubilee (i.e. 3013-3019) the One True God Eloah told Christ and the elect of the First Resurrection and the Host to stand back and He would again test the world.

 

The time had come to release Satan and the Fallen Host from the Bottomless Pit to once again deceive and test the whole world.

 

The Last War

Satan’s time had been cut short by just over seven years in order that the world might be saved.  He was now given that time back as God had allocated him six thousand years; and the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable.

 

Satan was then given just over seven years to test the world.

 

From the years 3018-3027 Satan and the demons had gone out and moved up and down among the world to deceive the nations.  He was allowed to break the Nexus of the Law once again.  Within a short period of time Satan had the entire world in rebellion. The only exception was the chosen and faithful of the elect of the Morning sacrifices of Ezekiel’s Temple. This group represented the chosen of the Churches of God of the millennial system in the same way that the Evening Sacrifice in the Old Temple system represented the Great Multitude of the First resurrection over the 40 jubilees in the wilderness. The Sabbaths, New Moons and Holy Days and the Wave Sheaf Offering of 72 per year represented the 144,000 of the Patriarchs and Prophets and the Elect of the Churches of God (see The Harvests of God, the New Moon Sacrifices, and the 144,000 (No. 120)).

 

The populace was roused to rebellion and they then marched against Messiah and the Camp of the Saints in Jerusalem. This sequence is covered in the text of Revelation 20:7-9.

 

Revelation 20:[7] And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be loosed from his prison [8] and will come out to deceive the nations which are at the four corners of the earth, that is, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea. [9] And they marched up over the broad earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city; but fire came down from heaven and consumed them,

 

Then a most difficult passage occurs because the names involved cause confusion in many who do not understand the Goodness and Love of God and His plan for the Host and the Salvation of all of His creation, both Physical and Heavenly.

 

 [10] and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulphur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

 

This text makes it appear as though Satan is cast into the lake of fire. The comment is that the Diabolos or the devil is cast into the lake of fire. That would indicate that God had a vengeful streak and was to punish Satan forever and ever but that is not what the Bible says in the Old Testament in both Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28.  In Isaiah 14:4-20 we read the prophecy made against Satan, the King of Babylon, who sought to make himself as the Most High God.

 

From the text in Isaiah 14 Satan is grouped as King of Babylon, Ruler of Assyria and also Philistia is prophesied as being destroyed by this smoke from the North. The City of Zion is established with all the nations surrounding it as being subject to it, and that includes the angelic being that sought to make himself as the Most High God, who is brought down to the sides of the pit. In other words he is killed but not buried. He is then made into a man and he is seen as being a man and made as weak as they.

 

Isaiah 14[1] The LORD will have compassion on Jacob and will again choose Israel, and will set them in their own land, and aliens will join them and will cleave to the house of Jacob. [2] And the peoples will take them and bring them to their place, and the house of Israel will possess them in the LORD's land as male and female slaves; they will take captive those who were their captors, and rule over those who oppressed them. [3] When the LORD has given you rest from your pain and turmoil and the hard service with which you were made to serve, [4] you will take up this taunt against the king of Babylon: "How the oppressor has ceased, the insolent fury ceased! [5] The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of rulers, [6] that smote the peoples in wrath with unceasing blows, that ruled the nations in anger with unrelenting persecution.

 

Note that once the King of Babylon is laid low and his system is destroyed the whole world is at peace.

 

 [7] The whole earth is at rest and quiet; they break forth into singing. [8] The cypresses rejoice at you, the cedars of Lebanon, saying, `Since you were laid low, no hewer comes up against us.'

 

Thus this being is laid low. The cedars of Lebanon are spirit beings and Lebanon is incorporated into the body of Israel under Messiah. Then note that the grave, Sheol or Hades, is stirred up to meet this angelic being, who is Lucifer the Light Bearer or Satan, when he is brought down to the grave.

 

[9] Sheol beneath is stirred up to meet you when you come, it rouses the shades to greet you, all who were leaders of the earth; it raises from their thrones all who were kings of the nations.

 

Then the human leaders say to Satan the following text when he is brought down to the grave to death. They note he has become as weak as they and his pomp or rulership and his system is brought down with him. He is identified specifically in verse 12f as the Lucifer.

 

[10] All of them will speak and say to you: `You too have become as weak as we! You have become like us!' [11] Your pomp is brought down to Sheol, the sound of your harps; maggots are the bed beneath you, and worms are your covering. [12] "How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low!

 

This can be no other being but Satan who was the then Day Star or Morning Star of the Earth.  This being had to be one of the fallen Host as we see from the text.

 

 [13] You said in your heart, `I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my  throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far north; [14] I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will make myself like the Most High.' [15] But you are brought down to Sheol, to the depths of the Pit.

 

Note that this being dies and lies with the maggots beneath him. He is thus rendered as a human body. Note also the question: “Is this the man etc.” He is human; he is not buried like the kings of the earth who lay in glory. He and the fallen host are not buried they lie with the stones of the earth.

 

 [16] Those who see you will stare at you, and ponder over you: `Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms, [17] who made the world like a desert and overthrew its cities, who did not let his prisoners go home?' [18] All the kings of the nations lie in glory, each in his own tomb; [19] but you are cast out, away from your sepulchre, like a loathed untimely birth, clothed with the slain, those pierced by the sword, who go down to the stones of the Pit, like a dead body trodden under foot. [20] You will not be joined with them in burial, because you have destroyed your land, you have slain your people. "May the descendants of evildoers nevermore be named!

 

Then the Lord pronounces the judgment of the system and the rest of the Host with them.

 

[21] Prepare slaughter for his sons because of the guilt of their fathers, lest they rise and possess the earth, and fill the face of the world with cities." [22] "I will rise up against them," says the LORD of hosts, "and will cut off from Babylon name and remnant, offspring and posterity, says the LORD.  [23] And I will make it a possession of the hedgehog, and pools of water, and I will sweep it with the broom of destruction, says the LORD of hosts."

 

Note that the entire remnant of Babylon is cut off. Its system of the Sun and Mystery Cults and its entire religious system are destroyed along with Satan the Lucifer.

 

Also, the Assyrian system is destroyed but we know that Assyria is brought from out of the north hand in hand with Israel in the beginning of the Millennium and so it is the Babylonian religious system that is described as “fallen” in Revelation chapter 18.

 

[24] The LORD of hosts has sworn: "As I have planned, so shall it be, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand, [25] that I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains trample him under foot; and his yoke shall depart from them, and his burden from their shoulder." [26] This is the purpose that is purposed concerning the whole earth; and this is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations. [27] For the LORD of hosts has purposed, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back?

 

Note that the system is throughout the nations and it is God that destroys it. This is the Sun and Mystery cults that had penetrated the nations through the Trinitarian and other Cults of the nations, including Hadithic Islam.

 

Then the prophecy concerning Philistia or the Palestinians follows. They were reduced to nothing and then made part of the Kingdom of Zion under Messiah at the beginning of the Millennium.

 

[28] In the year that King Ahaz died came this oracle: [29] "Rejoice not, O Philistia, all of you, that the rod which smote you is broken, for from the serpent's root will come forth an adder, and its fruit will be a flying serpent. [30] And the first-born of the poor will feed, and the needy lie down in safety; but I will kill your root with famine, and your remnant I will slay. [31] Wail, O gate; cry, O city; melt in fear, O Philistia, all of you! For smoke comes out of the north, and there is no straggler in his ranks." [32] What will one answer the messengers of the nation? "The LORD has founded Zion, and in her the afflicted of his people find refuge."

 

Then we see from Ezekiel chapter 28 that Lucifer is set as and with an anointed covering Cherub and was cast down to the earth.

 

Ezekiel 28[1] The word of the LORD came to me: [2] "Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord GOD: "Because your heart is proud, and you have said, `I am a god, I sit in the seat of the gods, in the heart of the seas,' yet you are but a man, and no god, though you consider yourself as wise as a god -- [3] you are indeed wiser than Daniel; no secret is hidden from you;[4] by your wisdom and your understanding you have gotten wealth for yourself, and have gathered gold and silver into your treasuries; [5] by your great wisdom in trade you have increased your wealth, and your heart has become proud in your wealth -- [6] therefore thus says the Lord GOD: "Because you consider yourself as wise as a god, [7] therefore, behold, I will bring strangers upon you, the most terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom and defile your splendor. [8] They shall thrust you down into the Pit, and you shall die the death of the slain in the heart of the seas.

 

Note this being says he is a god and yet he is brought down and slain as man. “King of Tyre” is another name for Satan. God taunted him in prophecy and asked: “Will you still say I am a god in the presence of those who slay you?”

 

[9] Will you still say, `I am a god,' in the presence of those who slay you, though you are but a man, and no god, in the hands of those who wound you? [10] You shall die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of foreigners; for I have spoken, says the Lord GOD."

 

Then at this point the King of Tyre is identified as the being in Eden, the Garden of God. He was placed there with an anointed guardian Cherub by God. There were two beings of this rank placed there and one was Messiah pre-incarnate and the other was Satan. Thus this being, Satan, is to die as a human.

 

[11]  Moreover the word of the LORD came to me:  [12] "Son of man, raise a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say to him, Thus says the Lord GOD: "You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. [13] You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, carnelian, topaz, and jasper, chrysolite, beryl, and onyx, sapphire, carbuncle, and emerald; and wrought in gold were your settings and your engravings. On the day that you were created they were prepared. [14] With an anointed guardian cherub I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; in the midst of the stones of fire you walked. [15] You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you. [16] In the abundance of your trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned; so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God, and the guardian cherub drove you out from the midst of the stones of fire. [17] Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I exposed you before kings, to feast their eyes on you.

 

Note here that God declares that he profaned his sanctuaries in the multitude of his iniquities. Then note how God finally disposed of him.

 

[18] By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade you profaned your sanctuaries; so I brought forth fire from the midst of you; it consumed you, and I turned you to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all who saw you.

 

Note that God then brought this being to a dreadful end and shall be no more forever.

 

 [19] All who know you among the peoples are appalled at you; you have come to a dreadful end and shall be no more forever."

 

Thus this being was brought to a dreadful end and would be no more forever. This devil or Satan would be destroyed and would be no more forever.  What then of this spirit of Diabolos that would be immersed in the Lake of Fire?  This is the spirit of Satan that has to be removed in order to deal with the being that became Satan who was once perfect from the day he was created.  This being is killed and then he and the Fallen Host are resurrected as human beings and will be in the sight of all men who will be resurrected with them.  This transformation is demonstrated by the change from Tyre to Sidon where God manifests His Glory within Sidon but by His holiness and by that manifestation people will know that He alone is God.

 

[20]  The word of the LORD came to me: [21] "Son of man, set your face toward Sidon, and prophesy against her  [22] and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I am against you, O Sidon, and I will manifest my glory in the midst of you. And they shall know that I am the LORD when I execute judgments in her, and manifest my holiness in her; [23] for I will send pestilence into her, and blood into her streets; and the slain shall fall in the midst of her, by the sword that is against her on every side. Then they will know that I am the LORD.

 

Then in the text of the prophecy God turns to Israel where He says that all the neighbours of Israel will be unable to hurt them and they will know that He is the Lord God.

 

[24]  "And for the house of Israel there shall be no more a brier to prick or a thorn to hurt them among all their neighbors who have treated them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the Lord GOD.

 

Thus the nations know from the intervention of God and the Restoration of Israel that the religious system set up under the Messiah is to be followed, and Hadithic Islam and Trinitarian Christianity are false systems as is Talmudic Judaism, and they are then done away with.

 

 [25]  "Thus says the Lord GOD: When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and manifest my holiness in them in the sight of the nations, then they shall dwell in their own land which I gave to my servant Jacob. [26] And they shall dwell securely in it, and they shall build houses and plant vineyards. They shall dwell securely, when I execute judgments upon all their neighbors who have treated them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God."

 

Thus it is clear from two witnesses in the Bible that Satan will be brought to the grave and killed as a man. His spirit will have been removed and he will await the Second Resurrection of the Dead as a new being ready to undergo correction and teaching to salvation along with the rest of the Fallen Host that have not repented by that time.

 

The End of the Millennium

Thus this last war brought the Millennium to a close.  We were left with all the dead of the rebellion both physical and spiritual and the Living Elect that had not rebelled, together with the Messiah and the Elect of the First Resurrection. The Elect that had been part of the Kingdom of God, but had died before the end of the Millennium due to the circumstances or conditions of the early Millennium, lay in the ground with the rest of the dead.

 

Over the last years of the Millennium the myths of the mystery cults had been restored by Satan and the great myth of the cycle of reincarnation will have been prepared for the Second Resurrection. 

 

It was then time to complete the sequence of the Resurrection.

 

The Second Resurrection

Every person who has ever lived was then resurrected to a living body as had been the case in the First Resurrection. They were then divided into two groups.

 

Revelation 20 [11] Then I saw a great white throne and him who sat upon it; from his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. [12] And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Also another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, by what they had done. [13] And the sea gave up the dead in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead in them, and all were judged by what they had done. [14] Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire; [15] and if any one's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

The first group was of those who had qualified to become sons of God. They were then translated to spirit beings and joined the sons of God in the judgment.

 

The rest of those who had ever lived and were the progeny of the sons of Adam were resurrected to physical beings, along with the entire Fallen Host that had not repented.

 

In this group were also those of the Churches of God that had been deemed unworthy of the First Resurrection and not translated from the millennial system. These were those of the Sardis and the Laodicean systems or those who failed of the others (cf. Rev. Ch.  3). It is quite erroneous to assert a Third Resurrection where God simply resurrects the failures to burn them in the Lake of Fire as a punishment. This error has been taught in the 20th century in some of the Churches of God.  God is not a sadist or a perverted mind. He is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Perfectly Good. This error has been addressed in the paper The Fallacy of the Third Resurrection (No. 166).

 

The Great White Throne Judgment

Many are called but few are chosen and it is the ones not chosen that are resurrected and then given a second chance at salvation.  That is their proper time of calling and judgment and salvation.

 

The entire world that had not had the opportunity of salvation was then spread into tribal groups and extended families and they were all re-taught according to the law and the testimony.

 

They have to be taught the errors of Reincarnation and the fallacies behind Animism, Shamanism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Hadithic Islam and the Antinomian Gnostic Christianity of the Sun and Mystery Cults.

 

Dante had the popes in the lowest levels of hell but we will simply give them a garment and put them back to school along with all the people they have deceived.  Protecting them and the other false teachers might be a difficult task in the first instance when the people realise what they have done to them, and particularly within the Churches of God corrupted by false doctrine.

 

The aim of the Judgment is to properly educate and correct the human and angelic creation of its errors and prepare it for eternal life as sons of God, as elohim.  It was to this end that God sent Christ: firstly to deal with sin and secondly to save those who eagerly await him.

 

To that end the fallen host and the human creation are placed on a more or less even footing in the judgment.  It is not God’s will that any flesh should perish and thus we are faced with the task of completely re-educating the entire body of the Second Resurrection. These people are all in physical form. Those who do not repent and are not corrected and do not accept God’s laws under the Messiah as their leader will not be allowed to survive and will face the Second Death.

 

All those of the Second Resurrection will face the prospect of the Second Death if they do not repent and accept salvation.

 

Every one of these people will be given 100 years of the Judgment of Krisis or Correction being resurrected as an adult at 20.  Everyone who has ever lived, regardless of their age at death, even as a zygote, will be given new life as a complete adult and then live for 100 years.  At the end of the 100 years everyone who does not successfully complete the Judgment and accept salvation under Messiah will die.  Their dead bodies will then be burnt in the Lake of Fire.

 

That includes the Fallen Host which was formerly under Satan. Even Satan will be given the opportunity to repent.  It was to this end that Christ gave the parable of the prodigal son (see the papers Lost Sheep and the Prodigal Son (No. 199) and The Judgment of the Demons (No. 80)).

 

It was to this end that Christ went to Tartaros after his resurrection to preach to the demons that were held there in the Pit.

 

Each person will be able to survive. God understood the rebellion of the host and He set aside the entire Creation to be saved and Christ was sacrificed as the lamb slain from the foundation or laying down of the world.

 

All of us were set aside by the prescience of God and called at our proper time.  Each of us was ordained and set aside and our works foreknown and ordained before we were formed in the womb (cf. Jer. 1:5 and also Rom. 8:29-30).

 

That is why some were left and not called and were dealt with in the Second Resurrection.  Most people simply do not have the Holy Spirit and understand that the elect are required to devote themselves to the salvation of all those who have ever lived, including the Satan and the Fallen Host. Unless you are able to devote yourselves to achieve that aim you are not ready for the First Resurrection and your place in the elect as a son of God. However, did not God say in the Psalms, and Christ tell us that it is written in our law that “I said ye are gods (elohim) children of the Most High all of you and Scripture cannot be broken” (Jn 10:34-35; cf. Ex. 22:9,28 and Ps. 82:6). This text in the Psalms includes the Fallen Host who will “die like men and fall like one of the princes.”

 

It was Satan that taught man that the Angelic Host could not die as they were spirits. That was propaganda so that the demons would not repent. No other doctrine is so vehemently resisted as the doctrine that the demons can repent. The demons attack it wherever it is raised. Thus there are two groups at the end of the Great White Throne Judgment.  Those who have been passed, accepted salvation and been translated; and those who refused to repent and who simply died and were cremated.  It is not God’s wish that any flesh should perish and that indicates that none will. Certainly those that do not believe and work to this end will not be in the First Resurrection as they are resistant to God’s will. However, all those in the Second Resurrection can face the Second Death and die, including the demons.

 

That was also why the doctrine of reincarnation was taught by the demons in order to deceive those in the Second Resurrection. All those in the Millennium and the Second Resurrection will keep the Sabbath, New Moons and Feasts in accord with God’s Calendar. Those that do not keep them will not survive.

 

The City of God

After the earth is cleansed and the creation is all translated to spirit begotten sons of God it will be ready for the coming of God to the earth as the City of God (see the paper The City of God (No. 180))

 

Once that happens we will go on to rule the universe with the earth as the centre of all creation controlling the universe from the City of God.
