After the thousand years of Jesus’ peaceful reign satan is released to deceive the nations once again. He deceives them with a lie and then brings them against God, and against His people, surrounding the city of Jerusalem. The army he musters will number as many as the sand of the sea which just shows how many people will be alive at the end of the millennium when people don’t die as early. God then destroys this army by fire from the sky.
“But after these things he [satan] must be released for a little while.”
“7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8 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. 9 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.”
The devil is thrown into hell to be tormented for ever and ever after God destroys the rebellion. He will be joining the antichrist and the false prophet who have been there burning for the past thousand years already.
“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.””
Great White Throne Judgement
At the Great White Throne Judgement the dead who had not believed in God or followed his word are resurrected to be judged. Heaven and earth will flee away from the face of Him who sits on the throne, which is hard to imagine since we always picture something physical. Those not found in the book of life are thrown into the lake of fire. Death and Hades are then thrown into the lake of fire, meaning nobody will be able to die from this point forward. This is the last and final judgement.
“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 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. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”
