1I saw an Angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a large chain in his hand. 2And the Angel seized the Dragon (that serpent of old, also known as the Devil and Satan), and bound him up with chains for 1000 years. 3Then the Angel threw the Dragon into the bottomless pit of the deep and closed it up, sealing the Dragon in and shutting him up, so that he could not lead the nations of the earth astray anymore, until the 1000 years were ended. And after that the Dragon will be set free for a short time.
AFTER YAHUSHA HAS DEFEATED THE NATIONS AT ARMAGEDDON (IN SECONDS - AS THIS WHOLE DIMENSION FRACKLES), AND AFTER THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE THROWN INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE (IN THE PREVIOUS VISION), WE FIND AN ANGEL CHAINING THE DRAGON UP IN THE ABYSS FOR 1000 YEARS. AGAIN THIS COULD BE A LITERAL 10x100 YEARS OR AN ABSTRACT TERM SIGNIFYING A VERY LONG TIME?? ALSO THE TERMS "THE BEAST / FALSE PROPHET / ANTI-MESSIAH etc" ARE ALL SYMBOLIC FOR A SYSTEM OF EVIL PROGRAMMED BEHAVIOUR THAT ALL MANKIND MUST PERFORM FROM BIRTH, HAVING THE CORRUPT SEED OF DESTRUCTION SOWN IN THEM. THE DRAGON IS SUPERNATURALLY BOUND AND CAN NOT AFFECT THE NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH THAT YAHUSHA IS ABOUT TO USHER IN THROUGH HIS MAGNIFICENT ARRIVAL ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.
NOTICE HOW IN REV.9 YAHUSHA SENT AN ANGEL WITH THE KEY TO THE ABYSS TO OPEN IT UP AND RELEASE THE DEMONS THAT WERE LOCKED UP IN IT IN ORDER FOR THEM TO TORMENT EARTH PEOPLE? NOW IN CHAPTER 20, SATAN AND HIS DEMON MINIONS ARE SENT TO THE ABYSS. SATAN IS BOUND IN CHAINS AND LOCKED UP THERE FOR 1000 YEARS. THE OPENING TO THE ABYSS (WHICH IS
THE SHAFT LEADING DOWN TO THE ABYSS) IS SEALED UP AND IT SEEMS THAT SATAN CAN NEVER AGAIN BE A BOTHER.
THERE IS A GROWING (AMILLENNIALIST) BELIEF THAT SATAN HAS BEEN CHAINED UP EVER SINCE YAHUSHA DIED ON THE STAKE, AND THAT FOR THE PAST 2000 YEARS HE'S HAS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HUMAN EVENTS AND NO INFLUENCE OVER THE BEHAVIOR OF MANKIND. NOT ONLY IS THIS IMPOSSIBLE BY OBSERVING THE WORLD AROUND US DETERIORATE MORALLY AND GROW DARKER AND MORE WICKED WITH EACH PASSING YEAR, BUT IT'S ALSO AGAINST DIRECT SCRIPTURES THAT TELL US HOW WE ARE TO FIGHT EVIL AND AVOID TEMPTATION.
1 PETER 5:8
"STAY SOBER, STAY ALERT! FOR YOUR ENEMY, THE DEVIL, STALKS ABOUT LIKE A ROARING LION LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO DEVOUR.
JAMES 4:7 "SO SUBMIT TO YAHUSHA, BETTER YET, TAKE A STAND AGAINST THE DEVIL, RESIST HIM AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU".
"DON'T BE AFRAID OF WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SUFFER. LOOK, THE DEVIL IS GOING TO HAVE SOME OF YOU THROWN IN PRISON, IN ORDER TO PUT YOU TO THE TEST; AND YOU WILL FACE AN ORDEAL FOR TEN DAYS. REMAIN TRUSTING, EVEN TO THE POINT OF DEATH; AND I WILL GIVE YOU LIFE AS YOUR CROWN".
EVERY ONE OF THESE STATEMENTS ABOUT THE IMMINENT DANGER SATAN POSES ON US IS MADE DECADES, AFTER YAHUSHA DIED. SO THE DISCIPLES CERTAINLY DON'T THINK SATAN WAS BOUND UP AND MADE HARMLESS AT YAHUSHA'S DEATH.
4Then I saw some Thrones and people sitting on them. These were the ones who had been given the power to judge. And I saw those who had been killed because they witnessed the truth of YAHUSHA and His Word and who did not worship the beast or its image, or receive his mark (behaviour) on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and ruled with YAHUSHA for 1000 years.
5(The rest of the dead did come back to life until the 1000 years were ended). This is the First Resurrection, 6and great blessings belong to those who share in this First Resurrection, for they are YAHUSHA’S Chosen people, and the Second Death (SECOND RESURRECTION) will have no power over them, for they will be Priests of YAHUSHA and will rule with Him for 1000 years.
1 CORINTHIANS 15:22-26
"SO JUST LIKE EVERYONE IN ADAM DIES, EVERYONE IN YAHUSHA WILL BE RISEN AND MADE ALIVE - BUT IN THE RIGHT ORDER: FIRSTLY YAHUSHA (WHO IS THE FIRSTFRUITS), THEN THOSE WHO BELONG TO HIM WILL RISE AT HIS COMING, THEN AT THE END, WHEN HE HANDS OVER THE KINGDOM TO YAHUAH THE FATHER, AFTER HAVING PUT AN END TO EVERY RULERSHIP, AUTHORITY AND POWER, AND PUTING ALL HIS ENEMIES UNDER HIS FEET. AND THE LAST ENEMY TO BE DONE AWAY WITH WILL BE DEATH".
ANYONE WHO DOES NOT RISE/TRANSFORM IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION WILL RISE AT THE SECOND FOR DESTRUCTION !
CHECK OUT THIS POPULAR QUOTE OF THE 1000 YEAR REIGN :
"Consider this: during the Millennial Kingdom, at first it will be populated by a minority of Believers who survived the End Times calamities plus a majority of re-embodied souls of believers who died prior to the 2nd coming. Thus it seems it will be a mixed population. Those who return to earth from Heaven in what I can only call "glorified bodies" will live throughout the 1000 years. Those who survived the End Times and enter the Millennial Kingdom as believers will age and die; as will their offspring. And keep this in mind: since the children of those believers will be just as much regular human beings as you and I, it means that they will in no way be born redeemed. They will have to make the same conscious choice to love and trust Messiah as we had to. And, clearly, some will not accept Him and most of those who don't will have to pretend as though they did so as not to be discovered and dealt with. So there will be births and deaths of human beings all during the Millennial Kingdom, and as Ezekiel 40 - 48 demonstrates, animals will also lose their lives on the Temple altar. This is why we read in 1Corinthians 15:26 that the last thing to be conquered at the end of the Millennial period will be death itself. The human population will increase but the re-embodied population will remain static the entire 1000 years. So by the end of 1000 years, the regular human population will be larger than those who now wear glorified bodies, because while those with glorified bodies will not age and die, they also will not be procreating".
PEOPLE ACTUALLY BELIEVE THIS CRAZINESS . . . WHERE'S YAHUSHA?
7Then when the 1000 years are ended, Satan will be set free from his prison. 8And he will go out to the four corners of the earth to deceive all nations, known as Gog of Magog (NOT GOG AND MAGOG - THIS IS SATAN & HIS EVIL MINIONS). Satan will gather them for battle and there will be more than anyone can count, like sand on the seashore. 9I saw Satan’s Army march across the earth and gather around the camp of YAHUSHA’S people and the city that YAHUSHA loves. (HIS BRIDE) But fire came down from Heaven and destroyed them all. 10And the Devil (the one who deceived all nations) was thrown into the lake of burning fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet were thrown, and there they will be tortured day and night forever and ever. (ETERNAL DESTRUCTION)
ONCE AGAIN THE JEWS HAVE INTERFERED WITH THE INTERPRETATION OF SCRIPTURE, TAKING AWAY THE GOG “OF” MAGOG AND SLIPPING IN A FALSE WORD WHICH EXPLAINS IT AS GOG “AND” MAGOG (MOST TRANSLATIONS READ `GOG AND MAGOG' !!
LETS NOT BE CONFUSED: SATAN IS GOG AND MAGOG IS HIS HOARD OF RESURRECTED EVIL DEAD.
THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF MYTHOLOGICAL CHARACTERS (IDOLATRY), EXPLAINING AWAY JUST WHAT GOG AND MAGOG ARE, WHICH ADDS GREAT CONFUSION, AND EVEN TODAY SOME ARE SAYING THAT RUSSIA AND CHINA ARE PROPHESIED AS GOG AND MAGOG, WHICH CAN’T POSSIBLY BE TRUE BECAUSE THE WAR OF GOG OF MAGOG HAPPENS AFTER THE 1,000 YEAR MILLENNIUM, WHEN SATAN AND HIS EVIL HOARDS STILL THINK THEY CAN MOUNT ONE LAST ATTACK ON THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE.
AND OF COURSE HIS ATTACK IS AGAINST THOSE HE IS SEETHINGLY HATEFUL AND JEALOUS OF : THE CITY THAT YAHUSHA LOVES ... (I.E JERUSALEM/ISRAEL) BECAUSE ALL OF SCRIPTURE IS ISRAEL-CENTIC - SHE IS HIS BRIDE AND TREASURED POSSESSION, AND AS WE KNOW, ISRAEL IN THE FLESH PLAYED THE WHORE AND WAS DIVORCED, BUT SHE WAS JUST A SHADOW OF A GREATER GLOBAL BRIDAL ISRAEL (JEWS & GENTILES).
11Then I saw a Great White Throne, and the One Who was sitting on the Throne. Earth and sky fled from His face and disappeared (LIKE IT WAS FRACKLED UP OR SOMETHING !!) 12And I saw those who had died, great and small, all standing before the Throne, and scrolls were opened. Then another Scroll was opened - the Scroll of Life. Then all people were judged by what they’d done, which is all written in these Scrolls. 13Then the sea gave up the dead who were in it, death and the grave gave up the dead who were in them and all these people were judged by how they’d lived and behaved. 14Then (finally) death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire, and this is all the second death ...
THE SECOND RESURRECTION IS PURELY FOR DESTRUCTION ... BECAUSE ALL THOSE WRITTEN IN THE SCROLL OF LIFE & REMEMBRANCE (THE WISE MAIDENS, THE SHEEP AND THE WHEAT) WERE IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION TO JOIN THE MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB.
15And anyone whose name was not found written in the Scroll of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.
LET US ALSO REMEMBER THAT SINCE THIS EVENT IS TAKING PLACE IN THE SPIRITUAL SPHERE (THE ONLY DIMENSION THAT NOW EXISTS SINCE YAHUSHA HAS RETURNED AND CREATED A NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH) ... THIS MEANS THAT TIME IS NOW COMPLETE. THEREFORE THE MENTION OF "FOREVER" IS THE SAME AS SAYING "ETERNALLY"... AND ETERNITY IS NOT A REALLY, REALLY LONG TIME BUT ACTUALLY THE ABSENCE OF TIME ENTIRELY. SO THE PROMISE OF YAHUAH TO THE SERPENT IN GENESIS 3 HAS FINALLY COME ABOUT:
GENESIS 3:15 "I WILL PUT HATRED BETWEEN YOU AND THE WOMAN, AND BETWEEN YOUR SEED AND HER SEED ... HE WILL BRUISE YOUR HEAD, AND YOU WILL BRUISE HIS HEEL."
2 CORINTHIANS 5:10
"For we must all appear before YAHUSHA'S judgment, where everyone will receive the good or bad consequences of what they did while in their fleshly body".
"You then, why do you pass judgment on your brother and sister? And why
do you look down on them? Don't you know that all of us will stand before YAHUSHA'S judgment seat, since it's written, "As I live, says YAHUAH, every knee will bow before me, and every tongue will confess to YAHUSHA. Yes! Each one of us will give an account of our life to YAHUSHA. So don't be judging one another any longer, but rather judge this: not to put an obstacle or a stumbling-block in each other’s way."
Likewise, every healthy tree produces good fruit, but a poor tree. produces bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, or a poor tree good fruit. Any tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down and thrown in the fire!So you will recognize them by their fruit.
1 PETER 4:17
"Because it is time for judgment to begin at the House/Altar of YAHUSHA. And if firstly from us, what is the end of those who don't obey His Good News of Deliverance? And if the just one is scarcely delivered (FOR ITS A HARD, NARROW, ROCKY PATH), then where will the wicked and the sinner appear?
So to CONCLUDE REV.20 ...those who want to be found worthy for the higher calling of the First Resurrection (in order to be Yahusha's Bride) ARE STANDING BEFORE THEIR JUDGE RIGHT NOW - IN HIS HOUSE - YES while they're alive and in their flesh. The Scroll of Life/Remembrance has been opened to them and each and every behaviour (both good and bad) is being judged RIGHT NOW in real time and for the willing, repentant applicant, their deliverance from each sin and their ongoing redemption is assured, THROUGH THE POWER-PACK, INCORRUPTIBLE SEED PLANTED WITHIN THEM, which is Yahusha's cleansing and training tool, culminating in a grand transformation in the twinkling of an eye upon Yahusha's Return. Those willing to walk this path NOW are experiencing what the rest of the world will discover at the end: HARSH JUDGMENT FOR SIN! But (unlike the world at the end) they also receive SWEET FORGIVENESS IN OVERCOMING. Those not willing to fall on the stone (offer themselves as a living sacrifice, pick up their torture stake and follow Yahusha to their death) ...will be crushed by the stone, and will stand to face their Creator at the GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT ... and as we know ... there is only one verdict:
