1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. 7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 And 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 as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 10 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. 11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

1 Sam P = "Satan is bound in the bottomless pit for 1,000 yrs and then loosed for a period and re-bound and cast back in the bottomless pit.That's the first 1,000 yr period. and approximately 1000 yrs ago this happened. The holy wars of the Catholics and Muslims killing tens of millions of Christians from both of those factions.Satan was again bound via the Holy Ghost giving the common man His Word to see the truth and the Great Reformation began. The Word of God bound Satan and the torturing started to lessen.Now; here we are 1,000 yrs later and Satan is again loosed out of the bottomless pit, but this time he will be cast into the lake of fire.In Eze 28 we see the model of Lucifer as the King of Tyrus and this feat has been duplicated today. I submit this feat is beyond human capabilities.  Amos 5:26 tells what his mark is and without it you will not be able to be a part of that commerce. It will finally escalate to the point that individuals will be forced to have that mark (which is being done today with digital information embedded on a chip and inserted in people's hand in FEMA camps throughout the USA.  2 Thes 2 tells us that Lucifer will be revealed prior to Jesus' return. Also, Rev 11:14 tells us that Jesus will return during great tribulation at the beginning of the third woe. At the time the 7th Angel declares that time will be no longer and when the third woe begins, he sounds the last trumpet sound and we are gathered unto Jesus on the last day.   Do a search on "last day" and "last trump" and see it happen in Rev 11:14--15 +.   "
2 Cary W = "Paul often said he fights the good fight of faith daily, that he may be counted among those who are in this first resurrection, having already overcome death by laying their lives down for he sake of Christ and His gospel."
3 Sarah R = "We will all one day be brought before the throne of God. Those in the book of life are those who have chosen to follow after faith in God through Jesus Christ. Those who have denied Jesus will not find their names in that book. They will be judged by their works, and none will be found holy enough based on works alone. Our works cannot save us in front of a Holy, perfect God. Only through the righteousness attained through faith can we be saved from the "lake of fire." "
