Revelation 20:7-10 (The VOICE)
7 When the 1,000 years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison. 8 And he will crawl out of the abyss in order to deceive the nations located at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog as Ezekiel described them, in order to rally them together for one final battle. They are in number as the grains of sand on the shore. 9 They marched in unholy array over the expanse of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. As they laid siege to the city, fire rained down from heaven and incinerated them. 10 And the devil who had deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had already been thrown; and the unholy trio will be tortured day and night throughout the ages.
William Shakespeare once said, “Better is not good enough; the best is yet to come!” I absolutely believe the best is yet to come! I believe, “No eye has ever seen and no ear has ever heard and it has never occurred to the human heart all the things God prepared for those who love Him” (1 Cor. 2:9). Evil must finally be defeated and that will definitely make things better. However, that alone is not good enough. Enjoying the glorious presence of our Lord sitting on his righteous throne ruling the heavens and the earth for the joy of his people…that IS the best yet to come!”
Prayer: Lord, thank you for your promise to finally put an end to Satan and his evil spirits. One day, Satan will cease to be able to raise his head and attack your faithful sons and daughters. Glory to you who sits upon the throne. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
