Here are my thoughts on Revelation 20:7-10.

Summary: In this passage, Satan is released from the Abyss. He then gathers the nations for a climactic battle against all believers. They place believers in a quandary – yet God abruptly destroys them with fire. Satan is then thrown into the lake of fire – joining the beast out of the sea and the beast out of the earth in their eternal torment.

Thoughts: While I believe that many of the events that are described in the preceding chapters of this book have already occurred, I also believe that the events that are described in this passage will occur at the end of time. Thus, my curiosity is piqued regarding the identity of “the nations in the four corners of the earth – Gog and Magog.” How will Satan influence them to oppose God and His people? Will all believers migrate to a single location at some point in the future – or will they be attacked wherever they reside? How will God deliver them from their enemies in their hour of need? Will the events that are described in this passage occur in this generation? In any event, believers can be encouraged by this fact – God fights for them. Moreover, He will finally defeat Satan and deliver them from his power.
