Then I saw a great white throne and the One seated on it. Earth and heaven fled from His presence, and no place was found for them. 12And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne. And there were open books, and one of them was the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their deeds, as recorded in the books. 13The sea gave up its dead, and Death and Hades gave up their dead, and each one was judged according to his deeds. 14Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death—the lake of fire. 15And if anyone was found whose name was not written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
A basic timeline of Rev 20
- The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed v5
- When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, and will come out to deceive the nations which are at the four corners of the earth... to gather them together for the war v7
- THEN I saw a great white throne...
Once the Millennium has begun, over the next 1000 years, the people who are not in Christ (those who were are given immortality at Jesus' return) will live a normal life and will die a normal death - these are still physical/mortal. Obviously, there will be a very different system in place - no more hospitals or cancer or sickness as we are plagued with now under the rule of the devil - but people will still die - perhaps of accident, old age, or murder, etc...???
he (the devil) would not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed v3
So before the "great white throne" judgement, all the dead have to be brought before the throne.
Is this a third (and final) resurrection?
each one was judged according to his deeds v13
There is no mention of a judgement during the millennium - it comes at the end - after Satan has been released to deceive one last time.
When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison v7
If the sea gave up its dead, and Death and Hades gave up their dead... is this a 3rd resurrection prior to the final judgement and the second death?
