That at the end of the thousand years the Lord descends with his people and the New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:2),

(Revelation 21:1-2)

the wicked dead are raised, and come up on the surface of the yet unrenewed earth, and gather about the city, the camp of the saints (Rev. 20: 9),

(Revelation 20:7-9)

and fire comes down from God out of heaven and devours them. They are then consumed, root and branch (Mal. 4:1),

(Malachi 4:1, 3)

becoming as though they had not been. Obad. 15, 16.

(Obadiah 1:15-16; Matthew 10:27-28; Luke 12:4-5)

In this everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord (2 Thess. 1: 9),

(2 Thessalonians 1:7-10)

the wicked meet the “everlasting punishment”, threatened against them (Matt. 25: 46), which is everlasting death. Rom. 6: 23; Rev. 20: 14, 15.

(Matthew 25:31-46; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:14-15)

This is the perdition of ungodly men, the fire which consumes them being the fire for which “the heavens and the earth, which are now, . . . are kept in store,” which shall melt even the elements with its intensity, and purge the earth from the deepest stains of the curse of sin. 2 Peter 3: 7-13.

(2 Peter 3: 7-13)
