Shepherds Bible Rev CHAPTER 201. And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottom-less pit and a greatchain in his hand.# I am of the opinion that this angel is Michael, the Archangel. The chain and pit, whatever they mayhe composed of, are literal.did2. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound hima thousand years,#Note the different names used here. This is done so there won’t be a shadow of a doubt aboutwhom we are talking. In Aramaic the word chain, means a band that can totally hold. At this time,Lucifer’s children are still here, but his influence on them is utterly locked away. Do you see thegreatness, graciousness, goodness and love of Yahveh? Even Lucifer’s children will have anopportunity not to be influenced by their father and will listen to the elect’s teachings and learn thetruth, and will then have a choice when Lucifer is released again. That is just.3. And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he shoulddeceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must beloosed a little season.#Many people ask why Yahveh just does not leave him locked up, and be done with it. We have afair and just God. The first fruits, or the elect, had to stand and confront him and have alreadyovercome. Now the others must confront and overcome Lucifer at the end of the millennium.4. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw thesouls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the Word of God, and which hadnot worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, orin their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.# One of the rewards of the elect is to reign with Him for 1000 years.5. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the firstresurrection.# Let us fix the time. The last trumpet has sounded. This present dispensation has ended. Death of the flesh is no longer a reality, because there are no longer any flesh bodies. Paul states in ICorinthians 15:51—52, Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all bechanged (made different). In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpetshall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorrup-tible, and we shall he changed. Paul tells us this isthe beginning of the millennium, because of the last trum-pet. It is important that you note he saidthe dead: that is to say, all dead shall be raised. From verse 38 of this chapter, we see he speaks of the ethnos also. Note, they were raised, not resurrected, but raised to an incorruptible body, mean-inga body that would not decay, shriv-el, wither or age. Corruptible (perish-able) and incorruptible(non-decaying) has to do with the body only. Whereas, mortal (liable to die) and immortality(deathlessness) has to do with the soul.# Now let us understand Paul’s explana-tion of this as it applies to this verse. Those who had notreceived the mark of the beast were resurrected to immortality (deathlessness). Those, who are onlyraised (awakened to an incorruptible body, still have a mortal (liable to die) soul. This connectionwith death they must retain until Satan is loosed at the end of the thousand years. If at this time they
 
do not accept Satan, they may take part in the second resurrection, thus putting on immortality(deathlessness) of the soul. But they must stay in this state until the end of the thousand years.Matthew 10:28 says, And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: butrather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. The word soul, as used in thisquote, is the Greek word #5590, meaning, and immortal soul.6. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath nopower, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.# He that comes forth in the first resurrection shall reign with Christ one thousand years. This isanother reward of the elect. They are resur-rected in an immortal body. Therefore, they cannot die inthe second death. Nor will they he exposed to it. Note, they will be priests to teach the many thatwere only awakened or raised. Unfortunately, some of the ones that are only awakened will bedeceived a second time by Satan when he is loosed. Therefore, they shall die a second time.7. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,# The millennium is over. Blindness has been removed from all people by the teaching of Christ andthe elect. Christ stated in John 9:41 If ye were blind, ye should have no sin. No longer can ignorancebe used as a cloak of innocence.8. And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog andMagog, to gath-er them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.# Here we see Satan’s last stand against Christ. Some people confuse this verse 8 battle which ispost-millennium with Ezekiel’s destruction of Gog and Magog (chap. 38 & 39) and Armageddon(Rev. 16:16), both of which are pre-millenni-um. Gog and Magog merely symbolize all Gentilenations in the four quar-ters (corners) of the earth. Yahveh’s purpose in this is to let each prove theirlove for Him after they are taught the truth, or, to follow Satan to damnation.9. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and thebeloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.# The camp of the saints, no doubt, is the millennial temple, built as described by Ezekiel. Note,Satan’s army does not enter into that camp, but only surrounds it. There are no earthquakes orhailstones this time, only the consuming fire of God. Read Hebrews 12:18-29 for a clearunder-standing of this event. Sin cannot stand before God, therefore, if you are a man of sin, you willdie the second death. In Jude 6 some of Satan’s angels are ordained of old to this condemnation.10. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beastand the false prophet are, and shall be tor-mented day and night for ever and ever.# AT LAST, PRAISE GOD! THE END OF SATAN. Here he is only himself. He had this rolestripped from him in Rev.19:20. He is no longer the great false messiah. Ezekiel 28:18—19 hasbeen fulfilled. He is turned to ashes forevermore.11. And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heavenfled away; and there was found no place for them.
