When I was younger and my mother was studying with me, she told me the following:
"Jaymes, After Armageddon, Satan and his demons will be locked away and we'll have 1,000 years to make the earth a paradise. After the thousand years, Satan and his demons will be released. Also, all the people that died will be resurrected.
"Satan will try really hard to make all the survivors of Armageddon, and all the newly resurrected ones turn against Jehovah. This will be the second test. Jehovah will destroy Satan, his demons, and all that turned against him.
"After the second test, we will all be perfect and will live forever in paradise."
I remember asking her two questions:
- What does being perfect mean?
- What happens if someone does something bad after the second test (when we're all perfect)?
Her answer to my first question was that being perfect meant that we couldn't ever do anything wrong anymore. Just like Jesus was perfect, we would be like him. Her answer to my second question was that I should revert back to her answer to my first question. When I pushed the issue, she said "If anyone does anything bad, Jehovah will kill them instantly, but Jaymes, no one will do anything bad as they will be perfect."
So my question to you is this - where did my mother get this information from? You see, she's not the only Jehovah's Witness to have ever said the exact same thing to me. Is this amazing piece of information in a Watchtower or a book? Please let me know as I am writing a blog post about this on my blog - www.JehovahsWitnessBlog.com and need to know.
