Rebellion in the Kingdom of Christ

There will be a rebellion at the end of the 1,000 year reign of Christ on Earth as described in Revelation 20:7-15. Satan will be released, followers will be recruited, and the forces will come together to surround the capital city or Jerusalem.

But the Lord will act quickly by sending down fire from heaven to devour the forces of evil (v. 9). The devil will be thrown into a lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever (v. 10).

On the other hand, those who have lived and died in the faith will be enrolled in the book of life. They will be justified by the gospel and acquitted by the Judge; entering into eternal life.

What can we do now to add to the book of life? We can use our skills and strengths to carry the gospel to the ends of the earth so many names are added.

This day with God, do a heart check review by going to Him in prayer. It is prayer which is our greatest power. Ask what can be done to stir up the Spirit so His will is done. Go in confidence … remember that during prayer, we are speaking to the ONE who already has the answer.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
