Topic: The Great White Throne

GOING DEEPER Questions (Small Group)

  • What stood out to you about this message and why?
  • How, if we have placed our faith in Jesus, do we still struggle with sin? What advantage to us is the Indwelling Holy Spirit?
  • How can there still be a sin problem with Satan bound for 1 thousand years?
  • Who is resurrected at the Great White Throne? Explain the books?
  • Is the Lake of Fire literal and eternal? How does this affect how you live and labor for Christ today?




Message outline

Title: The Great White Throne

Series: Revelation

Text: Revelation 20

Main Idea: God’s Kingdom is Coming; His Will is Being Done


  1. The Problem of Sin (Romans 7:21-8:17)
  • Two Desires Contrasted
    • The Desire to live for God is present; yet the desire to sin is as well (7:21-25)
    • Our desire to live for God comes because of being God’s child through Jesus; not to earn that position (8:1-8)
    • While our flesh will age with the wear of sin, the spirit will lead us into life and an eternal body (8:9-11)
    • God’s Spirit leads us into our adopted role (8:12-17)
  • Our Human Condition
    • Ecclesiastes 9:3 (Further, note Genesis 6:5)
    • Matthew 15:18-20
  1. The Thousand Year Reign (Revelation 20:1-6)
  • Satan is bound and cast into a pit (Vv.1-3)
  • Christ, His Bride, and Resurrected Martyrs reign during this time (Vv.4-6)
  • Satan, released, will lead a final effort to deceive (Vv.7-9)
  • Judgment over all who chose sin (Vv.9-10)

III. The Books are Opened (Revelation 20:11-15)

  • Original Heaven and Earth fade away, as if one awakening from a dream (v.11)
  • Resurrection of all outside of God’s Covenant- from Cain to the last under judgment of v.9 (v.12-13)
  • The Books are Opened
    • Recorded Deeds (v.12)
      • See Daniel 7:9-11
