There are no saved here, all lost. In Revelation 20:5 we are told,
"But the rest of the dead (the lost) lived not again until the 1,000 years were finished..." (Revelation 20:11-15).
Torment of Hades is now emptied at the end of Christ's reign. They appear before the Great White Throne Judgment, then to Hell ("Gehenna").
Diagram 7 was only inserted to give the reader an overall view of the resurrections of the saved and lost as they relate to their respective places. It must be noted that there is no one general resurrection of the saved and lost at the same time. The five separate resurrections which complete the First Resurrection fulfill what Paul was referring to in 1st Corinthians 15:20 and 23:
"But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept ... But every man in his own order...
Note: One Exception:
Notice on Diagram 7 at the end of the Millennium. At this point, the heavens and earth are destroyed and in 2nd Peter 3:10 we are told that: "In the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." "Nevertheless we, according to his promise (Isaiah 65:17), look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness." (2nd Peter 3:13)
You will recall that the Millennial Kingdom is started with all saved people in their human bodies (Matthew 25:34), who will bear children during the Millennium. We have no record of these or any other Christians dying during the Millennium. Longevity will, no doubt, be extended as it existed prior to the flood and a short time after. The Christian during the Millennium will still posses the old, Adamic nature just as we have today. So to dwell in the New Heaven and New Earth wherein dwelleth righteousness, their sinful bodies must be exchanged for the new resurrected bodies.
All Christians at the end of the Millennium will have a resurrection, exchanging their terrestrial bodies for a celestial body (1st Corinthians 15:40). In 1st Corinthians 15:53 we are told "For this corruptible (dead) must put on incorruption (bodies that can never decay), and this mortal (those alive) must put on IMMORTALITY (bodies that will never taste death). We are told why in 1st Corinthians 15:50, "Now this I say, brethren, that FLESH and BLOOD cannot inherit the kingdom of God..." (Read Philippians 3:20,21
