DEVOTIONAL – AUG 15
GENTILES SHALL SEE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS
Lord Jesus Christ, who is the messiah, says that He will not sit quite, nor will He rest until He redeems the city of Jerusalem. He has set watchmen upon the walls of Jerusalem and they will not keep quite nor will sleep but keep a watch over the city and will make the city a praise of the earth. This is a promise of Messiah and He has sworn by His right hand and by the arm of His strength. He promised that none of the enemies of Jerusalem will eat its corn as their food no stranger will ever drink its wine. Gentiles will see its righteousness.
Lord Jesus Christ defeats the kings loyal to Antichrist at ‘Armageddon’, and sits on the throne of David and reigns for a thousand years. In the thousand years of His rule there shall be perfect peace. Satan will be bound with chains and thrown into abyss by an angel who comes from heaven. Later Satan will be released for a short time when he goes Gog and Magog to deceive the nations but fire from God comes down from heaven and devours Satan. (Revelation Ch. 20:8)
The dead who did not accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior will resurrect at that time. The Lord shall judge them at the ‘Great white throne’ and cast them along with death, hell, and the devil and his angels into the ‘lake of fire’ to be tormented for ever and ever. This is the second death. For those who are saved, there is no second death but they will have everlasting life to be with the Lord for ever and ever. Note here when Antichrist and false prophet are thrown into the lake of fire! It is before the devil that deceived!!! Revelation 20:10 confirms it.
When the devil was cast into the lake of fire, the Antichrist and the false prophet were already there in the lake of fire. These are only the ones who will be in the lake of fire before the ‘Great White Throne Judgment’ (Revelation 16:16 and Revelation 20:8-10). Does the Scripture say any body is thrown into the lake of fire before Antichrist and false prophet. No, not at all!
There shall come out of heaven a New Jerusalem and we, who are saved, shall be in that Holy City. The Church is the bride of our Lord Jesus Christ and will be with Him for ever and ever reigning along with Him and every individual having been coformed to His image, irrespective of their earthly affiliation, while they were on the earth, to Jews or Gentiles.
