That Satan will be bound for 1000 years and sin will still continue on the Earth

It is hard for some to understand how sin will continue on the Earth during the time that Satan will be bound for the 1000 years of Rev. 20:1-10, but this is easy to understand when we see that sin is transgression of the law and that men will still be free moral agents during that time. There will be laws to obey in the Millennium just as there are today and men will become sinners by transgressing them just as they do today. That there will be sinners in the Millennium is clear from Isa. 65:20-25; 1 Cor. 15:24-28; Rev. 20:7-10; Zech. 14:16-21.

The Bible plainly states qualifications for those who will go in the rapture

One must be "in Christ" (1 Thess. 4:16; 2 Cor. 5:17), be "Christ's" (1 Cor. 15:23; Gal. 5:24), do "good" and be "blessed and holy" (Jn. 5:28, 29); Rev. 20:4-6).

People will be saved after the rapture of the church

This is clearly stated in Acts 2:16-21, where we read of people being saved and receiving the Holy Spirit in their lives during the tribulation. See Rev. 7:9-17; 12:17; 15:2-4; 20:4-6; where great multitudes of people will be saved and come out of the great tribulation.

The future tribulation will not be world-wide

Nearly every plague that will be poured out in the tribulation states that it will be over fourth or a third part of the Earth only, thus showing that the trouble for which these plagues are sent will be only on part of the Earth. see Rev. 6:8; 8:7-12; 9:18; 16:10, 12. As one will see, Antichrist will rule just a certain part of the Earth, and because he is the one causing the tribulation, it will be only over the part of Earth, which he rules.

THAT HE11 HAS LITERAL FIRE AND NOT SPIRITUAL FIRE

One reading of these passages will prove this: "I am tormented in this flame" (Lk. 16:19-31); "Into the fire that never shall be quenched" (Mt. 25:41, 46; Mk. 9:42-50; Isa. 66:22-24); "He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone . . . . And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever" (Rev. 14:9-11; 19:20; 20:10).
The idea of spiritual fire could never be understood in such plain literal passages that speak of fire, smoke, and brimstone. There is no statement in Scripture that even hints of spiritual fire that will torment people, so to even question the reality and literalness of He11 is showing opposition to the Bible.

The time will soon come when no man can commit suicide

This will be during the five months of the fifth trumpet judgment in the first three and one-half years of the future tribulation (Rev. 9:1-12). During this time we read that men will desire to die and death shall flee from them. Regardless of how men will seek to kill themselves and others during this time no man can possibly die. This is a special time set apart by God that men will be tormented with the demon creatures out of the bottomless pit, as stated in this passage.
