Jesus's Millennium Rule (MA48)

Rev 20:1-4  Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

Immediately after the wrath of the Lamb (i.e having completed the 70x7 years needed for the completion of God's dealings with the Israelites and finally the anointing of our Lord Jesus Christ as the Most Holy in Dan 9:24), our Lord Jesus will then begin His Millennium Rule on earth. With Satan bound for a thousand years, there will be complete peace on earth. All the martyrs, who were killed for rejecting the beast and its mark, will be resurrected to rule with Jesus Christ.

Rev 20:7-9 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.

During the period of the Millennium Rule of Christ (just like in the days of the garden of Eden), there is possibly no death nor new birth. Even though our Lord rules over mankind (with the mark of the beast) in joy, peace, harmony and tranquility for a thousand years, yet when Satan is released all of them will be deceived by him again. They will follow him to attack His saints in Jerusalem. Fire from heaven will kill all of them.

Brethren, beware, for once we are caught in the snare of Satan (proud, wicked, malicious, heretic, deceitful, evil, sodomite, covetous, etc.) we will reject truth and then begin to persecute bible believing Christians.

Rev 20:10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

Even Satan cannot escape from the lake of fire, and with the beast and false prophet, all of them will be tormented forever.

Rev 20:12,15 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

Brethren, let us ensure that our names are not erased from the book of life by our repentance of diluting His words in approving depraved, canal and covetous pastors, prophets and leaders. of abominable practices, sodomy, heresies, worldliness, etc.

Rev 22:19  and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
