If there is a final atonement cleansing the camp of all sin, there is a final removal of all sin from the people. Then, immediately preceding Jesus' Second Coming is a waymark in time when in His disciples all choices to rebel, all sinning, will have ceased. Their sins will have gone before them to judgment. They live in the sight of a holy God after Jesus' intercession for sin has closed. All are either sealed and on God's side, or marked and on Satan's side. No one will change sides again.
