ten in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire… This is the

second death”

(Rev. 20:7, 10, 11, 13, 15, 14 KJV).

The “second death” is when death, hell, sin, unrepentant

sinners, and Satan find their end. Only then can God lift the

curse He pronounced at the beginning, after mankind fell in

the Garden of Eden. Humanity has come full cycle; we are

back to the very beginning:

“In the beginning God created the

heavens and the earth”

(Gen. 1:1).

In this new beginning God has prepared,

“a new heaven

and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had

passed away…”

(Rev. 21:1). He will have purged the rebellious

men and angels, and a perfect earth is possible once again, this

time without the existence or presence of sin and evil.


The end at the beginning of the Day of the Lord (a 1,000

year “day”) will end man’s week. (Man will have had approxi-

mately six 1,000-year “days” since the Garden of Eden, as cal-

culated by tracing the genealogies in the Bible from Adam to

Christ and through the present). God will then regain control.

The book of Revelation expounds many details of God’s “take-

over.” God takes back the title deed to the earth that He gave

to Adam, who in turn gave it to Satan at the Fall. God gets the

deed back from Satan (the god of this age, 2 Cor. 4:4) by un-

rolling the seven sealed scroll of Revelation. By God’s decree,

man will no longer have to suffer under the curse, or pay the

price for being painfully educated by the tree of the knowledge

of good and evil (Gen. 2:17).
