Metanoia: What does the word "repentance" really mean in the Bible?
A ritual to remind yourself you live in a sinful version of the earth. The perfected version sees all the flaws fixed.
The gathering sequence is pretty specific so the pattern can be pointed out.
Ge:3:15 has a two-part prophecy that is completely fulfilled within a single hour of the Re:20:4 resurrected joining the few people the 7 vials did not kill.
In the perfected earth you have the same ritual only it is not a blood sacrifice so it is 'giving thanks' rather than 'Oops' offering.
The people allowed to repent all are included in the population that is alive for all of the 1,000 year reign. They are Shepherds later on while the people not alive will become their flock that they teach out life in a sinless earth. The 1,000 years was their training period. Christ and the 24 Elders from Re:4 are their Shepherds so they all survive the fire that sends all sinful immortals to the fiery lake.
Two men went up into the temple to pray;
the one a Pharisee,
and the other a publican.
The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself,
I thank thee,
that I am not as other men are,
or even as this publican.
I fast twice in the week,
I give tithes of all that I possess.
And the publican,
standing afar off,
would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven,
but smote upon his breast,
God be merciful to me a sinner.
I tell you,
this man went down to his house justified rather than the other:
for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased;
and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
