EARTH 3.0 - Key Points
The devil and his angelic followers are bound up in the bottomless pit for 1000 years. Even though the devil, Satan is not on earth, people still follow their own desires - in spite of Jesus being here on earth and readily accessible.
"The devil did not make anyone do it"
Sin is bound up in the hearts of men. Choices determine if we will follow inordinate and unproductive means.
The 1000 years is a time of training of sorts for humanity. It is an opportunity to govern, manage and care for a planet the right way - in preparation for the yet to be revealed New Heavens and New Earth.
People worship the imaginations of their own hearts.
Many will not go up to Jerusalem at the Feast of Tabernacle every year. To them the Lord withholds the blessing of this revived planet: drought ensues.
Today many complain against God saying, "If God were a God of love, He would not let these things happen!" (i.e. rape, murder, theft, lying, oppression....). Yet with Jesus physically on the earth ruling the nations with "a rod of iron" there will be immediate protection of the innocent and helpless - this will of course result in harm to the oppressors.
They will ultimately tire of the perfect rule of God and call Him the "Tyrant of Jerusalem". When Satan is released they will readily join him in rebellion - to unseat Jesus and take possession of the revived earth.
They will join Satan in a march upon the "camp of the saints" - the sukkot at the Feast of Tabernacles.
And He will judge between the nations, And will render decisions for many peoples; And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war.
- Isa 2.4
But with righteousness He will judge the poor, And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth; And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.
- Isa 11.4
And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, And the leopard will lie down with the young goat, And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little boy will lead them.
- Isa 11.6
"The wolf and the lamb will graze together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox; and dust will be the serpent's food. They will do no evil or harm in all My holy mountain," says the LORD.
- Isa 65.25
"Look! The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when the one who sows will overtake the harvester and the treader of grapes will overtake the planter. Fresh wine will drip down from the mountains, cascading down from the hills
- Amos 9.13
Each of them will sit under his vine And under his fig tree, With no one to make them afraid, For the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken.
- Micah 4.4
"No longer will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, Or an old man who does not live out his days; For the youth will die at the age of one hundred And the one who does not reach the age of one hundred Will be thought accursed.
- Isa 65.20
"And it shall be from new moon to new moon And from sabbath to sabbath, All mankind will come to bow down before Me," says the LORD.
"Then they will go forth and look On the corpses of the men Who have transgressed against Me. For their worm will not die And their fire will not be quenched; And they will be an abhorrence to all mankind."
- Isa 66.23-24
Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he would not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed; after these things he must be released for a short time.
- Rev 20.1-3
When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, and will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war; the number of them is like the sand of the seashore. And they came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and devoured them.
- Rev 20.7-9
