Text Box: Rev.2:1-7, “To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:  The one who holds the seven stars in His right hand, the One who walks among the seven golden lampstands, says this: ‘I know your deeds and your toil and perseverance, and that you cannot endure evil men, and you put to the test those who call themselves apostles, and they are not, and you found them to be false; and you have perseverance and have endured for My name’s sake, and have not grown weary.  But I have this against you, that you have left your first love.  Remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you, and will remove your lampstand out of its place unless you repent.  Yet this you do have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of God.’”  
Text Box: Rev.2:8-11, “And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write:  The first and the last, who was dead, and has come to life, says this, ‘I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy by those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.  Do not fear what you are about to suffer.  Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days.  Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.’”  
Text Box: Rev.2:12-17, “And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write:  The One who has the sharp two-edged sword says this:  ‘I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is, and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith, even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.  But I have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching of Balaam, who kept teaching Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit acts of immorality.  Thus you also have some who in the same way hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans.  Repent therefore; or else I am coming to you quickly, and I will make war against them with the sword of My mouth.  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.’”  
Text Box: Rev.2:18-29, “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write:  The Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like burnished bronze, says this:  ‘I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your deeds of late are greater than at first.  But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond servants astray, so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.  I gave her time to repent, and she does not want to repent of her immorality.  Behold, I will cast her upon the bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds.  And I will kill her children with pestilence; and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each  one of you according to your deeds.  But I say to you, the rest who are in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not known the deep things of Satan, as they call them—I place no other burden on you.  Nevertheless what you have, hold fast until I come.  And he who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken to pieces, as I also have received authority from My Father; and I will give him the morning star.  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”  
Text Box: Rev.3:1-6, “And to the angel of the church in Sardis write:  He who has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars, says this:  ‘I know your deeds, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead.  Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God.  Remember therefore what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent.  If therefore you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come upon you.  But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white; for they are worthy.  He who overcomes shall thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father, and before His angels.  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”  
Text Box: Rev.3:7-13, “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:  He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this:  ‘I know your deeds, Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word and have not denied My name.  Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews, and are not, but lie—behold, I will make them to come and bow down at your feet, and to know that I have loved you.  Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell upon the earth.  I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, in order  that no one take your crown.  He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write upon him the name of My god and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name.  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”  
Text Box: Rev.3:14-22, “And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write:  The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this:  ‘I know your deeds, that your are neither cold nor hot; I would that your were cold or hot.  So because your are lukewarm, and neither hot or cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.  Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich, and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and eyesalve to anoint your eyes, that you may see.  Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; be zealous therefore, and repent.  Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with Me.  He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”

The Second 
Group 2
For Unbelievers Only

This ends 7,000 years of human history that started with Adam and progressed through the four different dispensations.  The souls of all unbelievers are now taken out of Hell and must appear at this judgment.  It will be demonstrated that their righteousness is not as good as that of Christ’s and they will be cast into the Lake of Fire for their unbelief.  Unbelievers will also receive a resurrection body but it will be capable of enduring the torments of the Lake of Fire for eternity.  Jn.5:28-29, “Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good (belief in Christ) to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil (unbelief in Christ) to a resurrection of judgment.” Acts 24:15; Jn.5:29; Dan.12:2

Text Box: The 
Eternal State

After the fallen angels and unbelieving mankind are finally judged and confined to the eternal Lake of Fire, God purges the influences of their evil on His old creations by dissolving heaven and the universe.  

He will then create a new heaven and a new earth for His elect angels and believing mankind to inhabit forever.   Believers in their resurrection bodies will have permanent residence in the new Jerusalem on the new earth.  The new Jerusalem will be created as a 1500 mile cube.  

Millennial saint will transition over from the Millennium into the Eternal State in their natural bodies and live outside the new Jerusalem in a Garden of Eden type setting.  Their Old Sin Natures will be eradicated by ingesting the leaves of the Tree of Life and eternal life will be provided by eating the fruit of the Tree of Life.  Mankind will then continue on as God had originally intended prior to the fall of Adam and Eve.  God’s original plan for mankind before the fall of Adam and Eve will then be realized.

Text Box:      The FATHER, The SON, The HOLY SPRIT are co-equal and co-eternal.  The Father is the planner, the Son is the doer, the Holy Sprit reveals God‘s Plan.  Prior to any created thing, there was the Godhead.  Eternity applied to God means He has always existed and always will exist with no beginning and no end, Jn.1:1-5.  
     God has always existed apart from time, which is His invention.  God is not subject to time.  He is the cause of time, Deut.32:40, Psm.90:2, 102:27, 1Cor.2:7, Eph.1:4, 1Tim.1:17.  Both time and space, though, without substance, were created by God.  
     God is not time, but time is in God.  God transcends all His creations including time.  Time, which is finite, has both succession and duration.  Eternity, which is infinite, has duration only.  Just as God is not subject to time, He is not subject to space.  God is the cause of space,  Rom.8:20.  

     All three personalities of the Godhead share the same essence.  One simple analogy of this relationship is water.  It can be a liquid, a solid or a gas but it always maintains the chemical properties of water, H20.  What makes it water does not change.

Text Box: The angels witnesses to the creation of the universe.  

“In the beginning, God created heaven and earth.” Gen.1:1  

For thus says the Lord, who created the heavens (He is the God who formed the earth and made it,  He established it and did not create it a waste place, but formed it to be inhabited).  I am the Lord, and there is none else.”  Isa.45:18  

“The earth was (became) formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.”  Gen.1:2

     God is perfect and His creations are perfect.  God created the universe perfect ready to be inhabited and not a waste place.  The universe we see today is nothing like the universe that God originally created.  
     Therefore, there is a gap of time between Gen.1:1 and Gen.1:2 in which God in His permissive will allowed the fallen angels to take their negative volition towards Him to its ultimate climax.  This gap of time contains certain events that took place in the Angelic Conflict that we are not privy to.  These events that occurred during this gap resulted in the earth as well as the entire universe being placed in judgment by God.  Job 26:11-13  God created the darkness that now envelopes the universe.  God, in effect, turned out the lights and cast the entire universe into judgment.
     After God judged the fallen angels, He restored the earth from it’s dismal state to be inhabited by mankind.  The earth is now the focal point in the resolution of the Angelic Conflict.

Text Box: 	DAY 1  Gen.1:3-5, “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.  God saw that the light was good: and God separated the light from the darkness.  God called the light day, and the darkness He called night.  And there was evening and there was morning, one day.“
	DAY 2  Gen.1:6-8, “Then God said, ‘Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters‘.  God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so.  God called the expanse heaven.  And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.“ 
	DAY 3  Gen.1:9-13, “Then God said, ‘Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear‘; and it was so.  God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw it was good.  Then God said “Let the earth sprout vegetation:  plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them’; and it was so.  There was evening and there was morning, a third day.”  
	DAY 4  Gen.1:14-19, “Then God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”, and it was so.  God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night‘; He made the stars also.  God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth; and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good.  There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.”
	DAY 5  Gen.1:20-23, “Then God said, ‘Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.’  God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good.  God blessed them, saying, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.’ There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.”
	DAY 6  Gen.1:24-31, “The God said, ‘Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind; cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind‘; and it was so.  God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.  Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’  God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  God blessed them; and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’  Then God said, ‘Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food.’ and it was so.  God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.  And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.”  
	DAY 7  Gen.2: 1-3, “Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their host.  By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.  Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”  

2Pet.3:8, “But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.”  Human history from Adam to the Great White Throne Judgment will last 7,000 years.  Mankind, who has not been privy to witness the majestic power of God as the angels have and who is a much lessor creation compared to angels, must walk by faith whereas the angels walked by sight.  By this, mankind will prove to all the angels that God’s judgment on the fallen angels was righteous and just.

He will revive us after two days (2000 years of the Church Age); He will raise us up on the third day (The Millennium), that we may live before Him.  Isa.11:11, “Then it will happen on that day that the Lord will again recover the second time with His hand the remnant of His people who will remain,”  Eze.34;36:20-23, 32; 37  Hos.3:4-5
Text Box:      All unbelievers alive at the Second Advent of Christ are cast into Hades at the beginning of the Millennium.  Therefore, the Millennium starts with only the believers who survived the Tribulation.  Because the earth was trashed during the Tribulation, Christ will restore it and establish His reign. 

     Satan and the fallen angels are bound for 1000 years in Hades.  There will not be any Satanic influences, false religions or demon possessions in the Millennium.  

     The earth will be completely trashed after the seven year Tribulation is over.  Jesus Christ will have to restore the earth to be inhabited by those believers who survive the Tribulation.  They will be the generation who starts the Millennium.

Text Box: The Strength of the Oral Traditions

     The oral traditions were passed down from one generation to another through the family.  They were verifiable because eyewitnesses to these events lived for hundreds of years.  
     As you can see in the chart to the right, Adam, an eyewitness to the Garden of Eden and the fall of mankind, lived 930 years.  Adam was available to talk to Methuselah and Lamech, the father of Noah, the seventh and eighth generations from Adam.  Lamech was 56 years old when Adam died.  
     Noah was born 126 years after the death of Adam and 14 years after the death of Seth, Adam‘s son.  Noah and his sons were an eyewitnesses to the Flood and the Tower of Babel.  Noah lived 950 years and was available to the next nine generations down to Terah, the father of Abraham.  Terah was 128 years old when Noah died.  Noah died two years prior to the birth of Abraham.  
     Shem, the son of Noah, was also alive during the Flood event, the Tower of Babel and Sodom and Gomorrah.  Shem lived 600 years.  Abraham enter Canaan 75 years prior to the death of Shem.  Abraham was 150 years old when Shem died.  Issac, the son of Abraham, was 50 years old when Shem died.  The Jews entered Egypt 140 years after the death of Shem.  
     Abraham passed these traditions down to his son, Isaac, then Isaac to Jacob, to Levi, to Jochebed the mother of Moses.  As you can see, eyewitness to biblical events were present throughout history to keep the record straight.

Text Box: Text Box: The Creation of the Angels
Text Box:      God created heaven then He created the Angels in eternity past to serve Him.   Angels were created as eternal beings not subject to death or age.  The angels were all created perfect and sinless as the case with Lucifer makes apparent, Ezek.28:15.  
     The angels served God in heaven for an unspecified period of time prior to the beginning of the angelic conflict.  To this point, the angels had never witnessed God create anything.  Heaven was created by God prior to the creation of the angels and all the angels were created at one time, Col.1:16,17; Neh.9:6; Psm.148:2,5.   
     Now Lucifer, the most beautiful and powerful of all the angels, was assigned to serve God in His Throne Room in heaven.  He observed God’s glory in ways other angels could not see.  Lucifer, who later became known as Satan, became enamored with himself and his position.  Ezek.28:17  He committed the sin of pride because he thought he could be like the Most High God, Isa.14:12-14.
     Once Satan made his choice to go negative towards God and His plan, he opened the potential for all angels to do the same.  So, God demonstrated His creative power to the angels by creating the universe in their presence, Job 38:4-7.  But, Satan was still able to influence a third angels to became likeminded with him and revolt against God.  
     God, in His permissive will, allowed this Angelic Revolt to continue for an unspecified period of time, Ezek.28:15-17; Rev.12:4.   Then God’s overruling will stepped in.  God had given the angels enough time and opportunity to witness His essence and to choose for or against Him.  Because of their negative volition and evil, God pronounced judgment on Satan and the fallen angels, Isa.14:15.  God sentenced all the fallen angels to the Lake of Fire for all eternity.  
     However, prior to carrying out this sentence, God provided a demonstration for all of the angels to show He was just in His sentence.  God restored the earth and created mankind.  God gives mankind, a much lessor creation to the angels, the ability to choose for or against Him.  If mankind can choose to follow God and His plan, the fallen angels have no excuse and their sentence is therefore just.  The earth now becomes the center stage for the resolution of the Angelic Conflict.
