                        "THE BOOK OF REVELATION"
                             Chapter Twenty
OBJECTIVES IN STUDYING THIS CHAPTER
1) To consider the binding, future release and ultimate defeat of Satan
2) To examine the "thousand year reign" described in this chapter, and
   those who will reign with Christ during this time
3) To note the criteria of the final judgment, and the importance of
   the Book of Life
SUMMARY
Previous chapters have illustrated the defeat of agents used by Satan
to persecute God's people.  One by one we have seen the fall of
Babylon, the beast, the false prophet, and the armies they had
gathered.  What about Satan, the dragon who gave authority to the beast
in his efforts to wage war against the saints (12:17-13:7)?  And what
of those killed by the agents of Satan?
This chapter reveals the binding of Satan for "a 1000 years".  It most
likely depicts a long period of time in which Satan is no longer able
to deceive the nations as he did during the time of the Roman empire
(cf. 13:14; 20:3).  It began following the end of Roman persecution and
would continue for some time in the future.  During this period, John
see souls reigning with Christ, who were beheaded for their
faithfulness to Jesus and the word of God.  No mention is made of
reigning on the earth, so my conclusion is that they reign with Christ
in heaven during this period (cf. 2:26-27; 3:21).  This "first
resurrection" may be a special blessing for the martyrs of Christ
during the intermediate state (between death and the bodily
resurrection at the end of time), while 7:9-17 may describe the
intermediate state for the average Christian.  Truly those who had been
beheaded for the witness of Christ are "blessed and holy" (1-6)!
After the "1000 years" are over, Satan is released for a short time
where he once again seeks to "deceive the nations" to persecute the
people of God (cf. 13:14; 20:3,8,10).  The mention of "Gog and Magog"
is likely an apocalyptic reference to forces of evil at Satan's
disposal during this time, not any particular nation or nations.  But
the final attempt of Satan is quickly thwarted by the Lord, and the
devil is cast into the lake of fire, where the beast and false prophet
were (cf. 19:20).  If any section of Revelation pertains to the time
just prior to the Lord's final coming, I believe it is this one.  The
description is brief, for the book was written for the benefit of
Christians in Asia Minor about things to shortly come to pass (cf.
1:1-4; 22:6,10).  These Christians would not experience this last
attempt of Satan.  But to assure them (and us!) that Satan would
ultimately be defeated, we have the description found in these few
verses (7-10).
The chapter closes with a description of the final judgment.  Before
the great white throne and Him who sat on it, all the dead are judged.
Books are opened, including the Book of Life, and judgment is based 
upon their works.  None escape the judgment, for the sea, Death, and 
Hades give up all the dead that are in them.  Death and Hades are cast
into the lake and fire, described as the "second death".  The same end
is given to those whose names were not written in the Book of Life
(11-15).
