The LAST GREAT DAY
occurs after the MILLENIUM
when the dead will live again
and be given their first chance
to choose God’s Way.
The LAST GREAT DAY is Holyday 7, the last Holyday of God’s MASTER PLAN to transform Man-Kind beings into God-Kind beings.
After the Millenium is fulfilled, another special period of about 100 years (Isa 65:20) is set aside for those who are dead and had not yet been given a fair chance to choose God’s Way of Life during the first 6,000 years of mankind’s history on this earth.
The “whole house of Israel” is included in this special period of a second physical life.
11 Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel; behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope has perished. We are completely cut off.’ 12 “Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel. 13 “Then you will know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves and caused you to come up out of your graves, My people. 14 “I will put My Spirit within you and you will come to life, and I will place you on your own land. Then you will know that I, the LORD, have spoken and done it,” declares the LORD.'”
Both Jews and Gentiles are alive together in this special period, which the Messiah calls the “Day of Judgment”.
20 Then He began to denounce the cities in which most of His miracles were done, because they did not repent. 21 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles had occurred in Tyre and Sidon which occurred in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 “Nevertheless I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you. 23 “And you, Capernaum, will not be exalted to heaven, will you? You will descend to Hades; for if the miracles had occurred in Sodom which occurred in you, it would have remained to this day. 24 “Nevertheless I say to you that it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you.”
This “Day of Judgment” period is also mentioned in Revelation as the “Great White Throne” Judgment when the dead are alive and “standing before the throne“, and it happens after the MILLENIUM is completed.
Rev 20:5, 11-13
5 The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed…
11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.
It is also important to note that during this judgment period, Satan will not be able to deceive them as before (Rev 12:9). They will finally be free to make their own choice about living the Way of Life forever.
7 When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, 8 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. 9 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. 10 And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
These people were never given the chance during the 6,000 year period to know the truth about God, Satan and The PLAN to transform them into God-Kind beings who agree to live by the standards of Eternal Life.
10 And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” 11 Jesus answered them, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted.
Now, WHY were these people not granted to know the truth during their lifetime?
Well, I believe because God, who knows the heart and attitude and receptivity of each of us, must decide when is the BEST time to call each of us, according to His PLAN, and according to providing each of us our best opportunity to choose to live God’s Way of Life. During the first 6,000 years of Satan’s rule over this earth, it was not the best time for most to have their only opportunity to make that choice.
2 Cor 4:3-4
3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
However, on The LAST GREAT DAY, all of these people who died in ignorance will be given an opportunity to come to a knowledge of the Truth so that they may make a valid informed choice.
37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.
Right now, all of these people are dead, and in their graves, knowing and feeling nothing (Ps 146:4). They are NOT up in heaven, and they are NOT in hell being tormented. They are simply dead, likened to “sleep” by the Messiah (Jn 11:11), and are unconsciously awaiting their resurrection to a second physical life for their first opportunity to choose God’s Way of Life as the way they also want to live forever.
These will all LIVE AGAIN, and then they will finally “KNOW the Lord“.
5 “Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. 6 ‘I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the LORD.’ “
God has promised The LAST GREAT DAY – Holyday 7 – as the best time period for these people to know Him and to become members of His own Divine Family, forever!
2 Pet 3:9
9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
