After the Lord returns there will be a period of time when the devil is locked up for one thousand years. Christ will rule and reign upon the earth and the first group of people will be resurrected to reign with Him.
This period will end with the devil being loosed and he will gather the nations in the final battle against the people of the Lord. But he will not win. He will be thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur to burn and be tormented for eternity.
Then the second resurrection, the resurrection to judgment will take place and anyone whose name is not written in the book of life will be condemned to destruction.
Listen now to learn more about these fascinating times that are not far off.
