Revelation Chapter 20

Rev 20:1 Then I saw an angel come down from the heavens, having the key of the Abyss and an enormous chain in his hand.

Rev 20:2 So he overpowered the dragon, that old serpent, who is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

Rev 20:3 and threw him into the Abyss, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, that he should deceive the people no further, until the thousand years should be fulfilled; and after that he must be freed a short time.

Rev 20:4 So I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them; and I saw the souls of them that were decapitated for the witness of Jesus, and for the Word of God, and who had not worshiped the wild beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their forehead and upon their hand; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Rev 20:5 But the remainder of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection.

Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection; on such the second death has no authority, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with Him a thousand years.

Rev 20:7 When the thousand years have completed, Satan will be freed out of his prison,

Rev 20:8 and will come out to deceive the people which are in the four corners of the land, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle; the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

Rev 20:9 For they went up on the breadth of the land, and encircled the stronghold of the saints, and the beloved city; and fire came down from God out of the heavens, and devoured them.

Rev 20:10 Then the Devil that deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the wild beast and the false prophet are, and will be tormented day and night into the New Covenant Age from the Old Covenant Age.

Rev 20:11 So I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heavens fled away; and there was no place found for them.

Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened; and another book was opened, Who is the Life; and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Rev 20:13 For the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them; and they were judged each one according to his works.

Rev 20:14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.
