WILL YOU SHARE IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION? John saw a day when all those who share in the “first resurrection” would serve as priests of God and reign with Christ for a thousand years, a millennium.

COME OUT OF BABYLON John the Revelator wrote that he heard “another voice” calling out, perhaps the voice of Christ to His people. Like the angel who told Lot to get out of Sodom, He warned them to come out of Babylon. Many have offered opinions as to the identity of Babylon, but the most
