64. God will return and resurrect all of the intelligent beings He has ever created, so we may all be alive together for the closing events of the war.

But each in his own turn: Christ, the first fruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. {1 Corinthians 15:23-24}

After Satan is allowed to unleash upon creation the most intense period of suffering ever witnessed, Jesus will return to Earth. As He comes in the clouds, those who are asleep in the grave and still have softened hearts will be awakened. And those who lived through Satan’s final onslaught and remained faithful to God will also be caught up in the clouds with Jesus. All those who have fully-hardened hearts will either remain in or be sent to sleep in the grave at that time, except Satan, who will be left to roam the desolate Earth for a thousand years.

At the end of that era, God will once again return to Earth. He will bring all the faithful with Him, and He will then awaken all the wicked who are asleep in their graves. At that time, all of the intelligent beings God has ever created will be awake and conscious together for the very first time so the closing events of the war may take place.

Imagine! Everyone who ever came into being alive at the same time—from those who fell asleep in their infancy and were never known to the “giants of history” like Moses, Napoleon, Genghis Kahn, Solomon, and Hitler. No matter how many days they passed on Earth, no matter their position or power in life, all will stand equal before the Creator, as creatures who were all granted the same freedom — freedom to alter their connection to the Source.
