It is NOT a surprise for JWs to find out that all those people (who never ever knew about Jehovah and the bible and lived in remote areas of the earth before the death of Christ - ) will be amongst those who get a resurrection during the 1000 years and they will be taught about Jehovah and all will be tested at the end of 1000 years as perfect people. It is not a surprise for JWs because we READ and STUDY revelation 20. We do not make up our own narrative as we go along. This proves to me the logic of Jehovah (that the bible is true) - that jehovah absolutely thought through every aspect of his plan. You forget I used to preach to Muslims and other people who challenged the logic of the bible. If Jehovah says that at the end of the 1000 years there will be a test - a judgment by letting satan loose (people will all know Jehovah from the new scrolls that are opened) the test will be fair - we cannot say we do not like it. Just as Jehovah had the right to test adam and eve he has the right to test EVERYONE as a perfect person. Jehovah is the ultimate sovereign and he decides his plan..... we obey. We do not REJECT the word of Jehovah and make up our own stories as we go along.
Can anyone explain this to me?...Rev. 20:5 -- “(The rest of the dead did not come to life until the 1,000 years were ended.)…”? I thought that our loved ones will be resurrected DURING the 1,000 years… Does it maybe mean that they do not come to “everlasting life” until the 1,000 years are ended? Full Scripture for Reference: (Revelation 20:4, 5) And I saw thrones, and those who sat on them were given authority to judge. Yes, I saw the souls of those executed for the witness they gave about Jesus and for speaking about God, and those who had not worshipped the wild beast or its image and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand. And they came to life and ruled as kings with the Christ for 1,000 years. 5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the 1,000 years were ended.) This is the first resurrection.
