NMD 20b Rev 20 Great white throne
In the previous study, NMD 20a Rev 20 Mean Time 4d, we have studied the temporary destination of satan, the 1st resurrection, four judgements and the millennium peace. In this part of the study, NMD 20a Rev 20 Great white throne, we will study Rev 20: 7-15 and see the release of satan for a short period of time which is immediately followed by expulsion to his final destination and the final judgements.
We are clearly coming to the end of the Scroll which started at Rev. 4. We have seen the imprisoning of satan in Rev. 20:3. Now we are going to read what will happen to satan after the 1000 year peace and after his release.
That is suddenly scary! People were living so peacefully in a heavenly spot and suddenly he is there again. Satan is released from his prison and immediately he is starting to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth. Even under these circumstances people still need to be vigilant. It is very difficult to understand at this moment why God wants this sequence of events. Questions like: “Why was satan together with the antichrist and the false prophet not immediately thrown into the lake of burning sulfur” and “Why was satan imprisoned for a period of 1000 years and then released for a short period of time?”
Looking at what happens after the release of satan, it is more what happens to, and the reaction of, the nations. It is as if the nations are tested by God as to which interest comes first. Do they really want to serve God or do they choose satan. As we have mentioned before there will not be complete obedience by the people during the millennium. We can also see the warning to the nations written in Isaiah 60:12: For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined. And in Zechariah 14:17 is written: If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, they will have no rain.
