5 Growing in Christ Our Goal {169} THE goal of the quarter is to help us to not just believe the Truth (John 14:6), but to love Him even more and to grow in His grace.

6 Growing in Christ Lesson 13, December 29 Growing in Christ Lesson 13, December 29 When All Things Become New

7 Key Text Revelation 21:4 NKJV “ ‘AND God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’ ”

8 When All Things Become New Initial Words {315} IN the heavenly sanctuary, Christ will conclude His work for the salvation of humanity. After that, He will come to earth a second time, but with a glory never before seen. He will resurrect the dead saints and translate those who are living; and all of them will reign with the Lord Jesus in heaven for 1,000 years.

9 When All Things Become New Quick Look 1. Inaugurating the Millennium (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) 2. Midst of the Millennium (Revelation 20:7-9) 3. End of the Millennium (Revelation 20:7-9)

10 When All Things Become New 1. Inaugurating the Millennium 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17 NKJV “FOR the Lord Himself will descend from heaven…. 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.”

11 1. Inaugurating the Millennium God Provides Salvation {316} 1. The beginning coincides with the second advent of Christ. 2. The dead in Christ will be resurrected to join the faithful living. 3. Both groups will be taken to heaven.

12 1. Inaugurating the Millennium God Provides Salvation {316} 4. The wicked living at the time of Christ’s advent will be slain by His “brightness.” 5. And the desolated earth will become the prison house of Satan, who will be “bound” for 1,000 years by a chain of circumstances.

13 When All Things Become New 2. Midst of Millennium Revelation 20:4 NKJV “AND I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God…. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”

14 2. Midst of Revelation Judgment In Heaven {317} THIS text is portraying those who went through the experience of persecution as portrayed in Revelation 12:17–13:18. At the Second Advent (at which time occurs the first resurrection), these persecuted souls come back to life and reign in heaven with Christ.

15 2. Midst of Revelation Judgment In Heaven {317} Last week: judgment connected with Christ’s ministry in the heavenly sanctuary before the Second Advent. That judgment is different from the judgment in Revelation 20:4, a fulfillment of Christ’s promise in Matthew 19:28, and corresponds to Paul’s statement that the saints will judge the world (1 Cor. 6:2, 3).

16 Judgment in Heavan Three Phases {317} 1. Investigative. Associated with Christ’s priestly ministry in the heavenly sanctuary. 2. Millennial Review. The redeemed will examine God’s ways and judgment with the rebellion. 3. Executive. Will occur at the end of the millennium.

17 When All Things Become New 3. End of the Millennium Revelation 20:7-9 NKJV “WHEN the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations…to gather them…to battle…. They…surrounded the…saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.”

18 3. End of the Millennium Final Punishment {318} REVERSAL of the circumstances of Satan marks his being ”released.” This event is linked with the resurrection of the rest of the dead who “did not live again until the thousand years were finished” (vs. 5, NKJV).

19 3. End of the Millennium The New Earth {319} Revelation 20 ends with the elimination of Satan and his hosts. Revelation 21 opens with a vision of a new heaven and a new earth. God’s purpose in the Genesis Creation remains unrealized until the promise to make all things new is fulfilled on the new earth.

20 3. End of the Millennium The New Earth {320} The new earth will not only be home to human creatures but also to God. The estimated size of the “visible” universe is many billions of light- years wide; represents only about 7 percent of what’s actually out there! And to think: the God who created all that not only died for us but will dwell with us for eternity!

21 3. End of the Millennium The New Earth {320} True fellowship will be restored— not only between God and humans but between humans and nature and within nature itself. The cessation of animosity within the animal world will come to pass (Isa. 65:25). All that is harmful— decay, disease, death, and suffering—will be things of the past.

22 When All Things Become New Final Words {321} Human language is inadequate to describe the reward of the righteous. It will be known only to those who behold it. No finite mind can comprehend the glory of the Paradise of God” The Great Controversy 675.
