The vanquishment of Satan and his hosts shall be complete. The dead, small and great, all who have breathed the breath of life on earth, shall be resurrected - every soul that has tabernacled in flesh, whether good or evil - and shall stand before God, to be judged according to the record as written in the books. So shall be brought to glorious consummation the mission of the Christ. "Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. the last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet." Then shall the Lord Jesus "deliver up the kingdom, and present it unto the Father spotless, saying - I have overcome and have trodden the wine-press alone, even the wine-press of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God. Then shall he be crowned with the crown of his glory, to sit on the throne of his power to reign for ever and ever." The earth shall pass to its glorified and celestialized condition, and eternal abode for the exalted sons and daughters of God. Forever shall they reign, kings and priests to the Most High, redeemed, sanctified, and exalted through their Lord and God Jesus the Christ.
