175 Satan, Unmasked as the False Prophet, with a Pack of Lies deceives the Kings into Joining Him to Fight God by Changing Blood Back into Water

Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East.

Jesus had previously unmasked Satan by revealing him as a torturer, liar, and murderer during the fifth and sixth trumpets, but the wicked loves lies and hate the truth; so they were willfully deceived by Satan. But now the wicked are forced to see through Satan’s mask because of their suffering. The wicked complied with every demand of Satan, their god, including being tattooed with ‘666’ and murdering millions of saints. Now the wicked see their god cannot stop their terrible suffering; therefore they withdraw their support from Satan into depression – they have been willfully deceived. The wicked curse God for there is no love in their hearts – they reflect Satan’s image.

Satan has lost the support of the people so he turns to the ten kings of the Earth and their armies that he made rich. Satan catches the ten kings with a pack of lies. Like frogs catch their prey. The kings agree to fight God – their only hope of surviving is to kill the God that is causing all their suffering.  The ten kings join Satan, knowing that they are serving the devil, to make war against Almighty God. The kings see Satan as a god because of the signs and miracles he performs in their presence. They believe this is a war of the gods – their god fighting God.

In summary, the wicked see their god, Satan, is unable to stop their suffering, so then by the 1,315th day Satan has lost the worship and support of his kingdom that is over two billion people. Satan knows the Kings of the East {Jesus and His Father} are coming to destroy him. Therefore Satan and his demons go out to gather the kings of the Earth that he made rich during the Great Tribulation. Satan convinces the kings with a pack of lies and miracles, such as calling fire down from heaven and turning blood into water, to join him. They realize their only hope of survival is to fight God. The kings know they are serving the devil, but their armies declare war against God. This war is Armageddon.

The warning of the parenthetical remark of Revelation 16:15 seems to be out of place because the warning Jesus gives is sixty-five days after the judgment of the world is finished; thus everyone’s eternal destiny was set in stone by the end of the 1,260th day.

Revelation 16:15 “Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”

Jesus is saying to those of us who study prophecy. ‘Look at the suffering of these foolish people! They loved the lies and now they have lost eternal life forever; so don’t make the mistake of these foolish people.’ Obviously the warning has no meaning for those that have not read the warning, and it does not apply to the wicked after the 1,260th days that are lost.

Mark 8:36-37 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

176 The Global Picture

Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East.

Jesus had previously unmasked Satan by revealing him as a torturer, liar, and murderer during the fifth and sixth trumpets, but the wicked loves lies and hate the truth; so they were willfully deceived by Satan.

They loved the lies and now they have lost eternal life forever; so don’t make the mistake of these foolish people.’ Obviously the warning has no meaning for those that have not read the warning, and it does not apply to the wicked after the 1,260th days that are lost.

Mark 8:36-37 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

177 The Seventh Bowl & Armageddon

Revelation 16:17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!”

The seventh bowl begins on the 1,325th day; it is God’s response to Satan’s and the kings of the Earth’s declaration of war against God. The seventh bowl is ten days long ending on the 1,335th day at the Second Coming of Jesus. There are several scenes – some scenes are on Earth and others are in Heaven. There is a massive earthquake, the sun turns black, the moon to blood, the stars of burning sulfur smash the cities of Babylon, and Jesus wakes the sleeping saints to eternal life.

Six Scenes of the Seventh Bowl

1.  Revelation 16:16-21 is the seventh bowl. The massive global earthquake causes mountains and islands to disappear. Then there is a great hailstorm of burning sulfur smashing the cities of Babylon and the Second Coming of Jesus. There is no ice storm in Revelation’s story.

2.  Revelation 18:8-24 shows Babylon burning. The kings and the merchants are standing afar off, watching and wailing, as they see their treasures go up in smoke; thus life on Earth as we know it is finished.

3.Revelation 14:9-11 is the third angel’s message. Everyone was warned just before the 1,040th day not to worship the image of the beast or accept the tattoo of ‘666’ on the penalty of being tormented with burning sulfur.

4.Revelation 19: 1-6 is a heavenly scene of the 144,000 so loudly praising God for their salvation, and God avenging their deaths, that John describes the praise as a roar. And the servants of God are so excited in their anticipation of accompanying Jesus back to Earth in the Second Coming, they are about to split at the seams.

5.Revelation 19:11-21 to 20:6 describes the fury of God’s wrath and the first resurrection of the dead. The whole scene is an analogy of Jesus riding His white horse while stomping on the wicked trading the winepress of His wrath. There is so much blood that it reaches the bridles of His horse and it splatters on Him. The vesture of Jesus dipping with blood {the analogy of Revelation 14:16-20}.  The kings of the Earth, with their armies, are gathered to fight God, and they are destroyed. Satan, unmasked, is called the false prophet. He is thrown into the lake of fire along with the leaders of Babylon. About two and a half billion wicked are killed by the sword coming out of His mouth {the Word of God} and by the brightness of His Coming. The birds gorge themselves on the dead bodies of the wicked. Satan is cast back into the prison of the Abyss, to wait on death row for a thousand years; this is the first resurrection of the saints back to the time of Adam.

6. Revelation 6:12-17: the sixth seal is the Second Coming of Jesus. The sun turns black, the moon is blood red, burning stars falls to Earth; this is the Second Coming of Jesus.

178 Babylon Burns, the Seventh Bowl - 1,325th Day to 1,335th Day

Revelation 18:8 Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her. “When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: “’Woe! Woe, O great city, O Babylon, city of power! In one hour your doom has come!’ “The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes anymore.”

The scene of Babylon burning is the time of the seventh bowl beginning on the 1,325th day. The massive earthquake and the sulfur bombs weighing fifty to one hundred pounds burns Babylon down.  This is the response to the declaration of war by Satan and the ten kings during the sixth bowl. The burning of Babylon is the end of the world as we know it. The kings cry and wail over Babylon going up in smoke.

In summary, the ten kings go to war against God to save their great wealth. They know their god, Satan, masquerading as God, on earth is a fraud. This is why John no longer calls Satan ‘the lamb-like beast’ {Revelation 13:11} that masqueraded as Jesus – now John calls Satan the false prophet in Revelation 16:13. The ten kings know Satan is the devil, but Satan convinces the ten kings to join him in his war against God by putting on a supernatural show, with many miraculous signs including changing blood into water. The ten kings are persuaded by a pack of lies from Satan that their only hope of survival is to kill God.

Absurd isn’t it! The war of Armageddon is between the devil with the kings of the earth and their armies against Almighty God. God responds to their declaration of war with a hailstorm of burning sulfur bombs that destroys the great city of Babylon, and the cities all over the world. On the 1,335th day King Jesus appears in all His glory with His Father the King in the clouds of Heaven. The ten kings cry out for the rocks and mountains to bury them and hide them from the face of God. The wicked are consumed by the glory of God. The birds gorge themselves on the flesh of the ten kings and the wicked. Cities, houses, and businesses all over the world are in rubble and life on Earth as we know it is over – Babylon is in ashes.

179 The Torment of the Wicked - 1,325th Day to 1,335th Day

Revelation 9-11 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured out full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day of night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name.”

The torment of the wicked by burning sulfur begins sometime after the 1,325th day and ends on the 1,335th day of the Great Tribulation.  Everyone was warned not to worship the image of the beast. Then Satan, masquerading as Jesus, ordered the death of everyone refusing to worship the image of the beast, beginning on the 1,040th day {Revelation 13:15}. All those who worshipped the image of the beast and accepted the tattoo of ‘666’ are tormented day and night with burning sulfur, until they are destroyed on the 1,335th day at the Second Coming of Jesus.

The first lake of fire is formed by the storm of burning hail described in the two previous chapters. The first lake of fire is a living nightmare for the wicked. These people have made many jokes and laughed about hell – saying, ‘If I go to hell I’ll have a lot of friends there, but nobody is laughing now. The wicked were taught by their ministers the false doctrine of everlasting hell fire. Now they believe God is going to cast them into this lake if fire to scream in agony forever – this is their picture of God {horrible isn’t it}.  Their mental agony is absolutely horrible – this is their torment.  Of course what they believe is a lie. But they don’t know it! As the sulfur bombs smash their homes and businesses the wicked run this way and that way to escape the fires and the tremendous heat. The wicked would like to rest, they would like a drink of cool water, and they would like to escape the terror by sleeping. They hated the Sabbath of the fourth commandment and refused to honor God by resting and studying the Word of God on the Sabbath day.  Now they have no rest day or night from their torment that goes up day and night forever. The torment of the wicked last forever because the wicked are tormented right up until the Second Coming of Jesus, which is their death.

Revelation 22:14-15 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates of the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

180 The 144,000 Shouting Praises to God

Revelation 19:1, 2 After this I heard what sounded like a roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for true and just are his judgments.

While Babylon burns during the ten days of the seventh bowl between the 1,325th and the 1,335 day, John’s eyes are lifted to a heavenly scene of the 144,000 servant-prophets praising God for avenging their deaths. God’s servants are so excited they are about ready to split at the seams. In less than ten days they will accompany Jesus in the clouds of Heaven at the Second Coming to witness the resurrection of the sleeping saints back to the time of Adam and Eve.

In summary, in Revelation 19:1-6 John’s eyes are lifted from the horror of cities being burned all over the Earth to the scene of the 144,000 servant-prophets praising God. They are so excited they are ready to burst with joy. They have waited their entire lives to see Jesus, and now they see Him face to face {Revelation 14:1-5}. They have waited to receive eternal life, and now it’s their forever. They praise God for His righteous judgments against the great whore that killed them for their testimony to the Word of God. Yes, God avenges the death of His servant – He avenges the blood the religious wicked spilled. But as if it were not enough – they are so excited in their anticipation of accompanying Jesus back to Earth in the next few days, that their joy and praise sound like a roar. They are going to follow Jesus back to Earth in the clouds of Heaven to witness the death of the wicked, and the first resurrection of the sleeping saints from all parts of the Earth back to the time of Adam.

Daniel 12:1-2 At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people – everyone whose name is found written in the book – will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake; some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.

181 The Winepress of God's Wrath

Revelation 19:11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war.

Revelation 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

Revelation 19: 17-18 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; so you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great.

This scene of the Second Coming of Jesus on the 1,335th day focuses on the wrath of God more than anything else.  Revelation 19:11 to 21 describe the fury of God stomping the wicked and casting the leaders of Babylon and Satan into the first lake of fire. Satan is cast into the lake of fire and his physical body that he appeared in to deceive the world, masquerading as God on Earth. The religious wicked, that received the mark of the beast, are destroyed by the brightness of Christ’s appearance and His voice. The voice of Jesus that wakes up the sleeping saints to everlasting life simultaneously kills the remaining wicked. Jesus shows His contempt for the wicked by calling the birds to the supper of God. The corpses of the wicked are supper for the birds, and the saints are the bride of Christ, invited to the wedding supper in Heaven.

Then John sees an angel coming down from Heaven and locking up the dragon. The word dragon is used to describe Satan in the spirit world of demons. Satan, the false prophet, lost his physical body that he masqueraded in as God on Earth, in the first lake of fire. Now the devil is again locked up in the prison of the Abyss again, but the language of Revelation 20:1 to 20:3 tells us that Jesus has locked him up in high security. Now that the subjects of Satan’s kingdom are all dead, Satan has no one to tempt or destroy. If Satan was not chained to prison walls of the Abyss, he would leave the dead world of Earth and fly to millions of unfallen worlds in an attempt to continue his war against God by perpetuating sin. The fear of Satan gaining sympathy from just one being somewhere in the universe would fill the universe with such a constant state of anxiety during the thousand years, that there would be no peace anywhere in the universe. Therefore Jesus is assuring us that Satan is chained to the desolate Earth in the prison of the Abyss.

The hours and days that Satan waits on death row will seem like forever to him. During the thousand years he is surrounded by his kingdom of death. There is nothing for him to do but think about all the people he has hurt by tempting them into sin. Satan will suffer terribly as he waits minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, year by year, century by century contemplating the debt he owes for his high treason against God during the last six thousand years.  The waiting and anticipating the suffering of being destroyed in the lake of fire is worse than death itself.

Matthew 25: 41-46 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.  For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ “They will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick in prison, and did not help you?’ “He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do it for me.’ Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

The fire is eternal because after the wicked, the devil, and his angels are burned up to ashes, the end lasts forever. God is not a monster torturing the devil and the wicked for endless ages. God is love – He destroys the devil and the wicked to get rid of sin and death.

182 Armies of the world gathered to make war against Lord Jesus and His angelic hosts

184 The seven religious heads & the eighth head which is Satan the false prophet were burned alive in burning sulfur at the Second Coming of Jesus

When all the specifications concerning the leopard-like beast are assembled, Babylon is not too hard to identify. Babylon will be a monster-sized church-state. Babylon will rule over the nations with deadly power. It will persecute and devour those who oppose it. At first, the seven heads (the seven religious systems of the world) will control the leopard-like beast. I understand that the pope will be selected as the leader of Babylon and he will lead the world in appeasing God (actually blaspheming God) until the devil appears in the fifth trumpet. At the sixth trumpet, the devil will suddenly abolish the seven religions of the world and put ten kings in their place. Lucifer will assign these ten kings the task of rebuilding the infrastructures of Earth. The devil will demand the reconstruction of the world for the pseudo-purpose of establishing the kingdom of God and bringing in a thousand years of peace. Of course, this demand is a big lie. The devil will establish ten kings because he wants these kings to try to destroy Jesus at the Second Coming (perhaps by nuclear arms). It is reasonable to assume that labor camps will be set up and everyone will be forced into hard labor. Slavery will be imposed as a form of punishment. Civil authorities will punish those who refuse to work and obey.  The devil will kill most of his opposition (a third of mankind) and rule the world as “Almighty God” without significant opposition for almost a year. It is easy to see how the leopard-like beast mirrors its ancient namesake, the great city of Babylon, whose temporary splendor was created through years of forced labor and destroyed by God in a single night.  On the 1,335th day of the Great Tribulation, the devil, masquerading as God, along with his entire evil host and the seven religious heads and the religious wicked will be thrown into the lake of fire at the Second Coming of Jesus.

185 The Wrath of the Lamb, the Sixth Seal

Revelation 6:16-17 They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”

The last ten days of God’s wrath begins on the 1,325th day and ends on the 1,335th day with the Second Coming of Jesus. It is important that the student understands that these scenes, for the most part, occur simultaneously during the last ten days of the world’s history.

The seventh bowl begins on the 1,325th day as the response of Jesus to the declaration of Satan and the kings to make war against God. Jesus answers their arrogant declaration of war with a massive earthquake that causes mountains and islands to disappear, followed by a storm of burning firebombs smashing and incinerating the cities of Babylon all over the world. The kings of the Earth stand afar off wailing and casting dust on their heads as they see all their stuff go up in smoke. Those that worshipped the image of the beast and accepted the tattoo of ‘666’ on their right hand are filled with terror {tormented} as their cities and homes burst into flames {Revelation 14:9-11}.

As the smoke goes up to Heaven the 144,000 are praising God with such intensity that their voices sound like a roar {Revelation 19:1-6}. They are praising God for His salvation and for avenging their deaths. And the servants of God are also excited with the anticipation of following Jesus back to Earth in the Second Coming.

Then on the 1,335th day in Revelation 19:11-21 Jesus leaves Heaven on His white horse accompanied by the 144,000 on their white horses. Jesus is seen stomping on the wicked as He treads the winepress of His wrath. Why is His vesture dripping in blood? As Jesus stomps on the wicked in the fury of His wrath the blood of the wicked splatters all over His clothing, just like stomping grapes in a winepress with blood that is so deep it reaches the horse’s bridle {Revelation 14:17-20}. The scene is an analogy. The name of Jesus is unknown because anyone that knows Jesus is saying, ‘Who is the One stomping on the wicked with such fury?’ look at the description of Jesus! Revelation 19:12-13 ‘His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.’ Do you see the paradox? Verse 12 says no one knows his name but himself, and with the next breath in verse 13 His name is the Word of God; therefore we know the person is Jesus. Most of us see God as long suffering and merciful never losing His cool, but here Jesus is executing the judgment with a vengeance by stomping on the wicked. Then, after Jesus kills the wicked by speaking the Word of God, He calls the birds to gorge themselves on the flesh of the wicked to show contempt for their arrogant rebellion. And if this isn’t enough, as the wicked are dying by hearing the Word of God, the sleeping saints are simultaneously resurrected by the Word of God.

In Revelation 6:12-17 Jesus opens the sixth seal showing His displeasure against the wicked by a series of events that are parallel to the seventh bowl/plague. The earthquake of the sixth seal is the same as the earthquake of the seventh bowl. God is saying to the wicked by the following events: you liked darkness instead of light – the sun is black. You liked to shed innocent blood – the moon turns to blood.

You persecuted the saints and worshipped the image of the beast accepting the tattoo of ‘666’ –so thousands of stars of burning sulfur fall to Earth tormenting you and incinerating the cities of Babylon. The next scene is the kings of the Earth crying for the rocks and mountains to bury them hide them from the face of Jesus- for the Lamb of God is very angry. Where is their arrogance now?  Revelation 6:16 – ‘They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the lamb! God represents Jesus by a lamb because the lamb is a quiet, meek, and gentle farm animal, but here the Lamb of God is behaving completely out of character – the Lamb is very angry, just like the rider on the white horse in Revelation 19:11.

The student needs to understand that these five scenes showing God’s wrath is the reward of those that rebel against God. These scenes of judgment should discourage anyone that is living a life style of sin and rebellion. In all these scenes there is not a kind word for those that rebel against God.

Revelation 22:11-15 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie.

186 The Wrath of the Lamb occurs sometime after the 1,325th day

Revelation 6:16-17 They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”

The last ten days of God’s wrath begins on the 1,325th day and ends on the 1,335th day with the Second Coming of Jesus. It is important that the student understands that these scenes, for the most part, occur simultaneously during the last ten days of the world’s history.

The seventh bowl begins on the 1,325th day as the response of Jesus to the declaration of Satan and the kings to make war against God. Jesus answers their arrogant declaration of war with a massive earthquake that causes mountains and islands to disappear, followed by a storm of burning firebombs smashing and incinerating the cities of Babylon all over the world. The kings of the Earth stand afar off wailing and casting dust on their heads as they see all their stuff go up in smoke. Those that worshipped the image of the beast and accepted the tattoo of ‘666’ on their right hand are filled with terror {tormented} as their cities and homes burst into flames {Revelation 14:9-11}.

As the smoke goes up to Heaven the 144,000 are praising God with such intensity that their voices sound like a roar {Revelation 19:1-6}. They are praising God for His salvation and for avenging their deaths. And the servants of God are also excited with the anticipation of following Jesus back to Earth in the Second Coming.

Then on the 1,335th day in Revelation 19:11-21 Jesus leaves Heaven on His white horse accompanied by the 144,000 on their white horses. Jesus is seen stomping on the wicked as He treads the winepress of His wrath. Why is His vesture dripping in blood? As Jesus stomps on the wicked in the fury of His wrath the blood of the wicked splatters all over His clothing, just like stomping grapes in a winepress with blood that is so deep it reaches the horse’s bridle {Revelation 14:17-20}. The scene is an analogy. The name of Jesus is unknown because anyone that knows Jesus is saying, ‘Who is the One stomping on the wicked with such fury?’ look at the description of Jesus!

187 Seventh Millennium - Questions, Forgiveness, and Judgment

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them.

Corinthians 6:2-3 Do you know that the saints will judge the world... Do you know that we will judge angels?

By the end of the 1,335th day Jesus has awakened all the sleeping saints from the time of Adam, and they have been caught up in the clouds of Heaven, with the great multitude that no man can number, to live with the Lord forever more. More than two billion wicked people who worshipped the devil by accepting the mark of the beast are all dead.

At the beginning of the seventh millennium Satan is cast back into the prison of the Abyss to wait for his destruction. Because the wicked are all dead and the saints have been taken to Heaven there is no one to tempt, lie to, or murder; thus Satan is bored, and would leave if possible. He would go anywhere to get away from Earth.  He would go to the nations of millions of unfallen worlds looking for sympathy for the purpose of perpetuating sin on other world, but he is unable to leave Earth.

During the next thousand years the saints determine the just restitution of punishment for the sins the wicked committed while living. Then at the end of the seventh millennium Jesus will wake up all the wicked, dead people to be sentenced to death. They will suffer before they die, to pay the just restitution for their sins they committed against God and their fellow humans.  Some people will die instantly in the lake of fire, others will suffer much longer until justice is satisfied. After suffering is finished they will be reduced to ashes – this is the second death, which is eternal death.

188 The Great White Throne Scene & The Seventh Seal

Revelation 20:11-12 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:8-9 ‘And [Satan] shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for battle; In number they are like the sand of the seashore. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves…

Revelation 20:9-10 But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown.

Shortly after Satan is released at the end of the seventh millennium the great white throne scene appears. The language of the Earth and the sky fleeing from God’s presence is analogous language. This language is used to describe a scene that is so awesome that it goes beyond the ability of human language. The entire judgment scene is a supernatural event that stops Satan and his army in their tracks.  During the half hour God supernaturally talks to every wicked person as though he were the only person in the world. {The judgment of the saints was finished on the 1,260th day of the Great Tribulation; this judgment scene only applies to the wicked}. God explains to each person as though he were the only person on Earth, everything He did to save them. But each person chose, by his own free will, the life of sin and death instead of eternal life. Each wicked person sees all the people God sent to turn them from their evil ways. Each person remembers the voice of the Holy Spirit begging them to give up sin, but each person refused. Every person understands he/she is lost by their own choice.

In summary, at the end of the seventh millennium Satan is released from his prison of the Abyss. He deceives the wicked again because they have always listened to him.  The wicked begin their attack on the New Jerusalem of God, but the Lord stops the attack by the supernatural event of the great white throne scene. Jesus removes the last seal on the Book of Life and the entire universe sees that God saw every detail before creation began. They see that God did not use His power to control the outcome of who would be saved or lost. God is worshipped by the entire universe including Satan, his evil angels, the saints, the angels, and millions of unfallen worlds. Then the devil and the wicked are cast into the lake of fire and burned to ashes. Jesus then creates a new Heaven and a new Earth where the saints will live in peace forever.

189 The End of the Seventh Millennium

Revelation 20:11-12 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:8-9 ‘And [Satan] shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for battle; In number they are like the sand of the seashore. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves…

Revelation 20:9-10 But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown.
