Have you ever noticed when people talk of “The End” it is usually referred to the battle of Armageddon? Its like no one reads the rest of God’s Word to see the real End.

Well yes of course they do refer to a new heaven, and even a new earth. But seem to miss ALL in between. There is the thousand years that Jesus will rule and reign on this earth.

Everyone will not be killed in the battle of Armageddon. But after that reign there will be another battle, if it could be called a battle, called Gog and Magog, but lets give God’s Word a “close look” as we always do.

Revelation 20: 7-10, (7) When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison (8) and will go out and deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth-Gog and Magog- and to gather them for battle. In number they are like sand on the seashore. (9) They marched across the breath of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. (10) And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Actually verse 10 is not involved in this discussion, it will be in another one later on, but I just like posting his future. 🙂

So as we look at each verse we notice in verse 7 the Bible says that Satan will be released after the thousand years are up. Earlier the Bible tells us he was chained and imprisoned. So that is where he is during this period of time.

Verse 8 tells us he will go out to deceive the people on the earth, as he did Eve in the Garden of Eden. He will gather them together for battle and the number is very HUGE, so much so the Bible says it is like the sand on the sea shore. So they will greatly out number the ones with Jesus.

Verse 9, like so many other places of the Bible we are to see God versus man and how that always comes out. They go against Jesus and His people, so they are just quickly destroyed by fire from heaven.

So, that’s it? Not quiet! Verses 11 through 15 discusses those that face the same fate as Satan being judged and sentenced. Then we are into chapter 21 talking about the New Heaven and New earth. But did you notice there is a BIG question about those “not” killed in verse 9?

You haven’t looked and asked that question? Well I always look and wonder about things that most don’t seem to, that is why I post many of the things I do. So lets ask it and look at the possibilities, NOT saying we will know because unless God says it I can’t say it as a certainty!

See the fire fell on the armies that went against Jesus, which was far from being all the world, remember there are children, babies, mamas etc., that would not have been there. What happened to them?

Now I have heard it said God just transferred them into their new bodies, well that is speculation, which is ok if it is stated that way. That is one possibility but to say it, as if it is Scripture, like some do with different things, is wrong!

Revelation 21: 1, Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.

One thing we know God would have to “do” something with those left alive after the fire fell on the armies. But what?

Just something to, hopefully cause you to say, I wonder what other things God has in His Word I haven’t even though of, maybe I can find something to show Calvin. I would love that. 🙂
