The power of sin

• “…who will bind the dragon or sin-power for a thousand years”.

The Christadelphian : Volume 6. 2001, p.360

The power of sin• The first part of the work is to restrain sin,

apocalyptically styled binding the Dragon, the Old Serpent; who is designated also by the words diabolos and satanas; the former being rendered devil, and the latter left untranslated.

The Christadelphian : Volume 10, 2001, p.485

Page 6: Chapter breakup

The power of sin

• We see from these hints that diabolos, or ‘that having the power of death,’ appears in divers parts of Scripture in a sort of personal manifestation. The personality, however, is not that of a single individual; but the personification of a power in man, and in society antagonist to God and His people. .

The Christadelphian : Volume 10. 1873. p.486.

“…They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended). This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one that shares in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power…”

The throne in Revelation

• It is the same throne in Dan 7 before whom the books were opened to judge the nations and from which proceeded the stream of fire that ignites the lake of fire.

• It is the white throne and very glorious (Mt 25:31-32,41).

• Set up at the same time as (Dan 2:35)

“first resurrection” = the only escape from the condemnation of mortality that God

passed on all.

“second death” = the condemnation of Christ, either at the commencement or at
