1-IN BRIEF: THE FINAL JUDGMENT OF SATAN 
(Commentary)

    During the thousand years of peace on the earth, Satan is bound-ref Rev 20:2. After the thousand years expire, Satan shall be let loose out of his prison-ref Rev 20:7. He goes forth to deceive the nations one last time-ref Rev 20:8. Then Satan will come to his end. His final destiny for eternity is the everlasting lake of fire.

2-(Scripture)

    It is written, THOU HAST DEFILED THY SANCTUARIES BY THE MULTITUDE OF THINE INIQUITIES, BY THE INIQUITY OF THY TRAFFIC; THEREFORE WILL I BRING FORTH A FIRE FROM THE MIDST OF THEE, IT SHALL DEVOUR THEE, AND I WILL BRING THEE TO ASHES UPON THE EARTH IN THE SIGHT OF ALL THEM THAT BEHOLD THEE. ALL THEY THAT KNOW THEE AMONG THE PEOPLE SHALL BE ASTONISHED AT THEE: THOU SHALT BE A TERROR, AND NEVER SHALT THOU BE ANY MORE-Ezek 28:18,19.
  
For THE GOD OF PEACE SHALL BRUISE SATAN UNDER YOUR FEET SHORTLY-Ro 16:20.
  
AND THE DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, WHERE THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE, AND SHALL BE TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER-Rev 20:10. Indeed, the EVERLASTING FIRE (was) PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS-Mt 25:41.

3-IN MORE DETAIL: THE LAST REBELLION
(Commentary)

    The Millennium is over. There has been one thousand years of peace.
  
Satan has been bound, so that he could deceive the nations no longer during this period.
  
As a result, those that were born during the thousand years should not have experienced the temptations of the devil or had their faith seriously tested. Doubt or thoughts of war and rebelling against God should never have entered their mind.
  
All of this will change, once the thousand years have ended.
  
Undoubtedly, the people of the world have been warned concerning what is about to happen; they have been told what to expect. They have been told to beware; for those that do not stand fast in the Lord shall perish forever.
  
The time of testing for the people of the world is about to transpire.
  
This testing will not affect the saints that have their new resurrected bodies, who have reigned and ruled with Jesus for one thousand years.
  
Satan is let loose from his prison after the thousand years are expired. He goes forth one last time to deceive the nations. There is one final rebellion as the people of the world encircle the camp of the saints and the city of Jerusalem. Satan is cast into the lake of fire, where he will be for time without end. Fire comes down from heaven and destroys those that have rebelled.
  
The heavens and earth pass away.
  
The great white throne judgment is held.
  
A new heaven and a new earth come forth.

4-SATAN LET LOOSE FROM HIS PRISON
(Commentary)

    During the approximate time of the Battle of Armageddon, Satan was bound. He was cast into the bottomless pit for 1000 years. A seal was put upon him, so he could not deceive the nations during this time.
  
For the first time since man has existed, Satan was not able to deceive the people. For one thousand years, he was not able to put wrong thinking into anyone's mind. He was no longer able to deceive the nations.
  
Jesus reigned as the King of kings and Lord of lords. It had been a wonderful time on the earth.
  
For one thousand years there was peace. The world loved the Jews. People loved one another. The earth had lived in peace, love, and in accordance with the Word of God.
  
For one thousand years the evil and accusing thoughts that people normally have nearly all disappeared. The thoughts people have of rebellion and stubbornness against God virtually did not exist; these should never have come into their minds.
  
The people were not tempted, as in all previous generations prior to the Millennium, because Satan had a seal placed upon him.
  
Satan's voice had not been heard in the minds of the billions or perhaps hundreds of billions of people that have now repopulated the earth.
  
Undoubtedly, the people of the world have been warned concerning what is about to happen; they have been told what to expect. They have been told to beware; for those that do not stand fast in the Lord shall perish forever.
  
The Scriptures said that Satan would be loosed from his prison after the thousand years had expired.
  
The time of testing for the people of the world is about to transpire.

5-(Scripture)

   Rev 20:1-3-AND I SAW AN ANGEL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN, HAVING THE KEY OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT (or Abyss) AND A GREAT CHAIN IN HIS HAND. AND HE LAID HOLD ON (or seized) THE DRAGON, THAT OLD (or ancient) SERPENT, WHICH IS THE DEVIL, AND SATAN, AND BOUND (or chained) HIM (up) A THOUSAND YEARS, AND CAST (or threw) HIM INTO THE BOTTOMLESS PIT (or Abyss), AND SHUT HIM UP (or locked it), AND SET A SEAL UPON HIM, (so) THAT HE SHOULD DECEIVE THE NATIONS NO MORE, TILL THE THOUSAND YEARS SHOULD BE FULFILLED (or were over).
  
Once the thousand years are fulfilled, Satan will be loosed from his prison for a little while.
  
Rev 20:3-AND AFTER THAT HE MUST BE LOOSED (or set free) A LITTLE SEASON (or a little while, or time).
  
Rev 20:7-AND WHEN THE THOUSAND YEARS ARE EXPIRED (or are over), SATAN (the Adversary) SHALL BE LOOSED (or released) OUT OF HIS PRISON.

6-SATAN GOES FORTH TO DECEIVE THE NATIONS AGAIN
EVIL THOUGHTS INVADE PEOPLE’S MINDS
(Commentary)

    Then, suddenly, after the thousand years have expired, something happens to the billions or perhaps hundreds of billions of people. (Those in their spiritual bodies will not be affected.) All of a sudden their minds become full of thoughts of wickedness, rebellion, and hatred. There is a division between those that continue to follow Jesus and those that do not. There is a division between the Jews and those that hate the Jews. Even though the people of the world have been warned that this would happen, they do not resist the overwhelming power of Satan; they are consumed with hate and evil.
  
Some continue to believe God's Word, some do not. It is the same today. People will be tested to see if they will follow Jesus or the devil. They will be tested to see if their faith is genuine. The unsaved will be against the saved. Satan is once again able to take AWAY THE WORD OUT OF THEIR HEARTS-Lk 8:12. The world's population at this time will be as the sand on the seashore.

7-(Scripture)

    It is written, Rev 20:8-Satan SHALL GO OUT TO DECEIVE THE NATIONS WHICH ARE IN THE FOUR QUARTERS OF THE EARTH, GOG AND MAGOG, TO GATHER THEM TOGETHER TO BATTLE: THE NUMBER OF WHOM IS (countless) AS THE SAND OF THE SEA (or on the seashore).

8-(Scripture with Commentary)

    Rev 20:8-AND (Satan, having been loosed out of his prison after one thousand years) SHALL GO OUT TO DECEIVE
  
(1) THE NATIONS WHICH ARE IN THE FOUR QUARTERS OF THE EARTH. During the Millennium, people will live to be very, very old. A person that is one hundred years old shall be considered a child-ref Isa 65:20. The population of the world will explode. There will be nations upon the face of the whole earth, "the four quarters of the earth."
  
(2) GOG AND MAGOG. Once again, Gog and Magog are mentioned. This is the area of modern-day Russia. They led the invasion of Israel, in what we call World War III, during the first part of the Tribulation. Again, they are mentioned in connection with the final rebellion against Jesus.
  
Satan deceives the nations. He gathers THEM TOGETHER TO BATTLE: THE NUMBER OF WHOM IS (countless) AS THE SAND OF THE SEA (or on the seashore). The nations turn against the saints and against the Jew. They turn against Jesus. They are banded or gathered "together" in rebellion.
  
One characteristic of the Laodicean church age (in which we are currently living) is "deception." The people of this generation do not understand the magnitude of Satan’s ability to deceive. The people of the Millennium that will go into the period following will not truly understand the deceptive powers of the devil, even though they will be warned.
  
It is written, Rev 12:9-SATAN, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD.
  
Rev 20:10-AND THE DEVIL (or Adversary, which is Satan) THAT DECEIVED THEM. Multitudes of times, the Bible tells of the devil deceiving people and nations. Yet some in this Laodicean church age will make unwise statements such as, "Satan cannot deceive me."

9-THE WORLD REBELS AGAINST GOD FOR THE LAST TIME
(Commentary)

    The nations from all over the earth came or marched up on the broad plain of the land. They surrounded two things: the camp of the saints and the beloved city, Jerusalem. It appears that the saints have banded together and are greatly outnumbered.

10-(Scripture)

    Rev 20:9-AND THEY WENT (or came, or marched) UP ON (or across) THE BREADTH (or broad plain) OF THE EARTH (or land), AND COMPASSED (or surrounded) THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS (or God's people) ABOUT, AND THE BELOVED CITY.

11-(Scripture with Commentary)

    Rev 20:9-AND THEY (the nations of the world, Gog and Magog) WENT (or came, or marched) UP ON (or across) THE BREADTH OF THE EARTH (or land). During Armageddon, the position of the earth may possibly change. The wording "up on" or "across the breadth of the earth" leaves much room for speculation.
  
AND they (the forces of the world that had now turned against the saints and the Jews) COMPASSED (or surrounded)
  
(1) THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS (or God's people) ABOUT,
  
(2) AND THE BELOVED CITY (which is Jerusalem). Some translations omit the word "and"; thus, it would seem that the camp of the saints is the beloved city. Whether they are one or separate is uncertain.
  
The Jews, it appears, will stay faithful to Jesus during this time of rebellion; for it is written, "My words...shall not depart out of thy mouth...nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed...from henceforth and for ever."
  
It is written, Isa 59:20,21-AND THE REDEEMER SHALL COME TO ZION, AND UNTO THEM THAT TURN FROM TRANSGRESSION IN JACOB, SAITH THE LORD. AS FOR ME, THIS IS MY COVENANT WITH THEM, SAITH THE LORD; MY SPIRIT THAT IS UPON THEE, AND MY WORDS WHICH I HAVE PUT IN THY MOUTH, SHALL NOT DEPART OUT OF THY MOUTH, NOR OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THY SEED, NOR OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THY SEED’S SEED, SAITH THE LORD, FROM HENCEFORTH AND FOR EVER.

12-THE DEVIL IS DESTROYED AND CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE

    A fire shall come from the midst of Satan and destroy him. In the sight of the people, he will be brought to ashes. He shall terrify no one any longer. He shall be cast into the lake of fire, where he will remain for eternity, tormented day and night for ever and ever. 
  
Ezek 28:18,19-THOU HAST DEFILED (or desecrated) THY SANCTUARIES BY THE MULTITUDE OF THINE INIQUITIES, BY THE INIQUITY OF THY TRAFFIC; THEREFORE WILL I BRING FORTH (or made) A FIRE FROM THE MIDST OF THEE, IT SHALL DEVOUR (or has consumed) THEE, AND I WILL BRING (or reduced) THEE TO ASHES UPON THE EARTH (or ground) IN THE SIGHT OF ALL THEM THAT BEHOLD THEE (or were watching). ALL THEY THAT KNOW THEE AMONG THE PEOPLE (or all the nations) SHALL BE ASTONISHED (or appalled) AT THEE: THOU SHALT BE A TERROR (or you have come to a horrible end-NIV), AND NEVER SHALT THOU BE ANY MORE.
  
Rev 20:10-AND THE DEVIL (or Adversary) THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST (or hurled, or thrown) INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE (or lake of burning sulfur), WHERE THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE. The beast and false prophet have been there for approximately one thousand years, being tormented day and night. They are alive. They shall never die. Their torment shall last forever and ever. Now the devil will be in the same lake of fire AND SHALL BE TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER. This is the EVERLASTING FIRE, PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS-Mt 25:41.
  
These scriptures indicate after the Millennium, Satan will be seen by the people in some manner. When he appears to burst into flames and is brought to ashes, there will be people watching it happen. This indicates it may occur about the same time that fire comes down from heaven and destroys those that have surrounded the camp of the saints. The people of the nations do not yet appear to have been destroyed.
  
To understand the words, "I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee," the following may help explain this.
  
The deaths of two St. Petersburg, Florida women were reported some time ago, as well as a woman in Chicago. The Chicago woman abruptly burst into flames and was burned to death on a sidewalk. It was called a "spontaneous human combustion." When this happened, there were no vehicles or other people near her. Reportedly, only a few pieces of her clothing remained, including her purse. She was not a heavy woman. The theory was put forth that, perhaps, some people could ignite, as a result of a chemical reaction within their body.
  
It was reported that a St. Petersburg, Florida woman also died in a similar manner, in 1951. She appeared to have burst into flames as she was sitting in a chair in her home. The only remains that were found was a skull (which had shrunken to cup size), a piece of a backbone, and her left foot, which was unburned. The report stated, there was no major damage to the home and that no smoke, smell, or fire was detected.
  
About eighteen years later, another incident also occurred.
  
This may be what will happen to Satan when he comes to his end.
  
The fulfillment of Gen 3:15 is finally completed. Satan’s head is finally crushed.
  
The Lord God said, I WILL PUT ENMITY BETWEEN YOU (Satan) AND THE WOMAN (Israel), AND BETWEEN YOUR SEED (the offspring of Satan, the son of Satan, the Antichrist, which is yet to come, as well as the children of the devil) AND HER SEED (the Son of Man, the Son of God, Jesus Christ)-Gen 3:15 NASB; HE (Jesus) WILL CRUSH YOUR HEAD, AND YOU (Satan) WILL STRIKE HIS HEEL-Gen 3:15 NIV.
  
For THE GOD OF PEACE SHALL BRUISE SATAN UNDER YOUR FEET SHORTLY-Ro 16:20.
  
Satan was defeated at the cross and ultimately will be cast into the lake of fire. Satan was allowed to cause the death of Jesus, but to his own defeat.

13-THE REBELLIOUS PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED BY FIRE

    Scripture indicates that just before the rebellious people are destroyed, Satan is cast into the lake of fire.
  
It seems to be as it was at Armageddon: The Antichrist and false prophet were cast into the lake of fire, then the earth was reaped by Jesus. In other words, the leaders of the rebellion were destroyed first, then those that followed them.
  
The people from the four corners of the earth, including Gog and Magog, have surrounded the camp of the saints and the city of Jerusalem. This final rebellion will be destroyed by God, as fire will come down from God out of heaven and destroy them.
  
Rev 20:9-AND FIRE CAME DOWN FROM GOD OUT OF (or from) HEAVEN, AND DEVOURED (or consumed) THEM. God fights for His people. His judgment against these rebellious people is swift and final. God had told the disobedient people what would happen to them through His Word, yet they chose to believe Satan's lies. During the Millennium, they saw the wonderful works and miracles of God, but they still rebelled.
