Death In The Millennium

Q. People in the Millennium will be living longer as they did pre-flood, but I was wondering that since they still do die, what happens to them? If they are in Christ, do they then get a glorified body and still remain on Earth? Just wondering where they go since New Jerusalem is where only the Church lives.

A. The Bible offers only a vague hint of the disposition of people who die during the Millennium. Rev. 20:11-15 describes the Great White Throne judgment. In Verse 15 it says, “If anyone’s name was not written in the Book of Life he was thrown into the lake of fire.”

Although it’s normally thought of as the judgment of the unsaved dead, the idea that there could be some there whose names are written in the Book of Life gives a hint that perhaps not all are lost. As to where they go, the Bible is silent.
