All Things Subject to Christ
For “He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him,
that God may be all in all.
1 Corinthians 15:27-28
Throughout the Bible, we see how the Trinity––God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit––works together in harmony––three in One. Paul spoke about the dominative reign of Jesus Christ and God the Father in the time to come. We understand that Satan had already lost the battle when Jesus died on the Cross for our redemption.
Christians who were raptured to heaven will come back with Jesus Christ at the Second Coming to reign and rule with Him. We will have our new immortal bodies. However, after a thousand years, Satan will be let out of the bottomless pit to tempt the nations. He will gather an army that rebels against Christ, which will be destroyed. Satan and every demon will be brought into submission. They will be thrown into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:7-10).
At The Great White Throne Judgment, the books will be opened, and those who were not found in the Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire. Every person who took the mark of the beast on their forehead or on the back of their hand will also be thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death (Revelation 20:11-15). Then God will create a new heaven and a new earth, and Christ will rule and reign forever (Revelation 21).
Incredibly we have the promise of the Holy Spirit given to us as a guarantee of our salvation (Ephesians 1:14).
In Him [Jesus] you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
