That after a thousand years have ended, those people who rejected God's salvation while living on earth, are brought back to life - This is called the Second Resurrection. Facing God, they see how they rejected God in their life, and then receive God's just judgement.
“...there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust.” Acts 24:15
“But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished.” Revelation 20:5
“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.” Revelation 20:11-13
That the city of New Jerusalem comes down out of heaven to Planet Earth. Satan with his forces of demons and the resurrected wicked, surround New Jerusalem in a final effort to overthrow God. But receiving God's just judgement, fire comes down from heaven and all those who rejected God are destroyed in everlasting death. Cleansing fire purifies Planet Earth. Thus sin with death is destroyed forever, never to arise again in the universe.
“Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Revelation 21:2
“Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea.” Revelation 20:7-8
“They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” Revelation 20:9-10
“Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:14-15
“For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.
