“And when the thousand years are ended,
Satan shall be loosed out of his prison”
Read An Excerpt
“Jesus clearly says in Matthew 28:18 that all authority or power has been given to Him in Heaven and on Earth. I believe Jesus literally means what He says. By His perfectly righteous life, by His Cross and His resurrection from the dead Jesus has defeated the world, the flesh and the devil. He has ascended to the Throne of Heaven in the Heavenly Jerusalem and if we take Scripture literally He now rules Heaven and Earth. As we go on we will see that born again Christians see His sovereign rule with the eye of faith and that He is doing what He wills in the armies of Heaven and Earth and none can stay His hand or say to Him what are you doing? We read in Revelation 20:1-3 that satan has been bound. What does it say about why was he bound?
He was bound so that he would not be able to deceive the nations for 1,000 years. We must keep that in mind as we go back in the history of the nations and what happened to the nations after all authority was given to Jesus. Remember the nations refers to the Gentile world outside of Israel. So as we look at the Old Testament times we see of all the nations of the world only Israel was given the Word of God and the power of God was used mightily to preserve Israel because God was going to bring the Messiah into the world through them.”
