THE SECOND RESURRECTION
The resurrection of the wicked takes place at the end of the millennium, right here on the earth -- the saints remain within God's glorious new city as the numerous wicked are brought back to life outside the gates of the city. [ REV 20:5, 20:8-9 ]
The wicked far outnumber the saints... They come forth from their graves feeling just as they did in life -- they are murderers, thieves, adulterers, liars, all those who rejected the call of the Holy Spirit.
These people refused to turn away from sin. These people rejected truth.
There are Papist priests and Prelates who claimed to be Christ's ambassadors, yet used the rack and dungeon and the stake to control the consciences of His people. There are multitudes in the vast throng of the long-lived race that existed before the flood.
The whole wicked world and the fallen angels stand arraigned at the bar of God on the charge of high treason against the government of heaven -- and the sentence is eternal death.
And, sad to say, here with the wicked will be millions of people who lived in the last days: the people who accepted the mark of the beast.
