The world is currently being plunged into a time about which the Bible says more than it does about the time when Jesus walked along the shores of Galilee.

The end of the 1,000 years of perfect environment, that Satan is released from his prison and he goes through the entire earth but this time he is visible and not invisible.

With his magnificent personality, he persuades literally millions and millions of people to revolt against God and revolt against the perfect envi­ronment of the 1,000 years Millennial reign.

It’s the same choice that the angels had to make, when they had to choose Jesus Christ on the one hand or Satan on the other hand.

The revolt against perfect environment is the same pattern as the revolt in heaven when Satan was in EZE 28:13 “Eden, the garden of God;

These are the winner believers who were willing to give their life or be martyred for the cause of Christ during the Tribulation period.

This is a reference to the second resurrection of unbelievers which is being referred to here and then John describes those who were resurrected for good in verse 5.

JOH 5:29 and some shall come forth; those who did the good {deeds} to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil {deeds} to a resurrection of judgment.

The second death is when unbelievers are raised from the dead and they stand before God and then are thrown into the eternal lake of fire.

2TI 2:12 If we endure, we shall also reign with Him; If we deny Him, He also will deny us;
more than one third of all the angels made a decision to follow Satan…..for Satan this decision was based upon his own agenda, ….which was ”Let me choose my will over God’s will!”

Just like the fallen angels had to make a choice so we are duplicating in human history what took place in the prehistoric angelic con­flict and the choices they, the fallen angels, had to make.

One of the main differences is the fact we are confined to one place, planet earth, in order that all angelic creatures can sit in the stands as it were and watch how members of the human race respond or react to the plan of God.

1CO 4:9  For, I think, God has exhibited us apos­tles last of all, as men condemned to death; because we have become a specta­cle to the world, both to angels and to men.

ROM 9:20  On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, “Why did you make me like this,” will it?

Would you sit down on a continual basis to just sit and observe what a lower creation like bugs or animals are doing?
Angels are watching us in 1CO 4:9.

When Satan revolted against God in prehistoric times all of the angels were created beings from the hand of God and therefore they were all perfect.

When Satan first entered the picture with mankind, he found two perfect people, Adam and the woman, who were created perfect.

During that time there’s great evangelism but not everyone believes in Christ, nevertheless they are still living.
Satan is released from his prison and he goes through the land and he is visible.

With his magnificent personality he persuades literally hundreds and thousands of people to revolt against God and revolt against perfect environ­ment.

It’s again the same choice that the angels made, Jesus Christ on the one hand or Satan on the other hand.

The revolt against perfect environment is the same pattern as the revolt in heaven in prehistoric times.

Satan has been in prison for a thousand years and during that thousand years on earth, perfect environment has existed.

The only thing that is not quite perfect are the people. People still have old sin natures…everything else is perfect.

Criminals who retain their arrogance do not change by serving a prison sentence.

Some people come out and they are changed people…but they are the exception to the rule rather than the rule in the time in which they lived.

The real purpose of prison is to isolate a criminal from the general public and that’s where Satan has been.

As the inventor of the cosmic system, Satan who is also the inventor of criminality, has now been released from prison.

JER 13:23 says, “Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then how can you also do good who are accustomed to doing evil.

Gog is actually the code name for Satan and Magog is a reference to his followers.

The First Advent of Satan is found in GEN 3:15, where Satan came to perfect environment and destroyed it; And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.”

In the Second Coming, REV 20:7-8, the same thing is true. In both advents of Satan, he found perfect environment on the earth when he came and conspired to destroy it.

In his First Advent, he was successful. In his Second Advent, the conspiracy and the revolution will fail.

In both advents, Satan alleges to improve perfect environment and to do that, he has to lie and deceive a lot.

He will lie to millions and millions of people and tell them that they could have it a lot better if they would follow him.

He lies, he distorts, and he uses the system of flattery in order to appeal to the arrogance of individuals.

People who have been living in perfect environment for hundreds of years, in some cases 950, 975 years, living in perfect environment and yet a little flattery stirs them up.

The implacability and dissatisfaction of the human race is phenomenal at this time and so Satan alleges to improve perfect environment.

Part of Satan’s cosmic philosophy includes the idea that of improving man’s environment by eliminating the weak and unfit from society.

Hitler was motivated by Satan that the Jews were inferior people and needed to be eliminated from the planet.

Satan comes along with his cosmic philosophy and his new educational system.

Satan also likes to promote reformation and better social understanding.
