Key Events: The Fifth Age will begin with the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, and the First Resurrection, which is the resurrection of God's Elect, the Bride of Christ.
The Millennial Kingdom of God will be a glorious thousand-year Age when Jesus Christ will rule and reign with His Bride on earth. Christ and His Bride will rule over the mortal fleshly people who survive the Great Tribulation and their descendants born during the Millennial Age. The Millennial Kingdom will be a time of great blessing for all nations, and the whole earth will become like the Garden of Eden and full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. Full details are given in Chapter 11 'The Millennial Kingdom of God'.
The Fifth Age will end with the release of Satan from his prison. At the same time, the Second Resurrection will occur when the rest of mankind will be resurrected. These are the overwhelming majority of people ever born and not included in the First Resurrection. (Revelation 20:5, 7)
