Your Eternal Inheritance
Your Eternal Inheritance
1Thess 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
At Rapture the elect will be resurrected into their glorious incorruptible bodies. They will meet the Lord in the cloud and then follow Him back to heaven and be with Him forever.
At the Great White Throne judgement, the wicked, abominable, unbelieving, liars and unsaved will be resurrected into their inglorious incorruptible bodies. They will be cast into the Lake of fire for their eternal agony.
At the Great White Throne judgment, all those whose names are found written in the book of life will be saved and they will remain on earth to be with our Lord Jesus Christ.
Resurrected Martyrs as Kings
Rev 20:4-5 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
All those martyred during the Great Tribulation and resurrected at Rapture will be given white robes to wear. They will come back to earth to rule with Christ during His Millennium Rule. They will all sit on thrones.
Rev 6:9,11a When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. Then a white robe was given to each of them...
The New Heaven and New Earth
After the Great White Throne judgement, Death and Hades will be cast into the Lake of fire for their eternal punishment.
After the creation of the New Heaven and the New Earth, all those with our Father God Almighty in heaven will go with the Father into the New Heaven
Similarly, all those with our Lord Jesus on earth will go with Him into the New earth.
Those going into the New earth
After the Great White Throne Judgment, those left on earth with our Lord Jesus will be the resurrected martyrs (elect), the resurrected 144,000 Israelites and those found written in the book of life.
Those written in the Book of Life
1. Christians (who are saved by His grace) unless they have committed unpardonable sins or they refuse to repent of heresies, distorted truth and wrong doctrines and sins leading to death.
2. Jews who have kept His law and have not apostated with unbelief, rebellion, hypocrisy nor blasphemy.
3. Devout Men such as the Patriarchs such Abel, Noah, Job, Lot, etc. (before Judaism) and also devout Gentiles. Many of the above may have been counted worthy to be the elect and taken back to heaven at Rapture.
Rom 2:11-14 For there is no partiality with God. For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law (for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified; for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves,
