At the end of the Millennial reign of Jesus Satan will be set free for a short time. During that time he will fool the countries of Gog and Magog, which are *at the far ends of the earth, and their people will follow him into battle against the Holy City. They will have as many followers as there are grains of sand along the beach. (Rev. 20:7-8) and they will march all the way across the earth. They will surround the camp of God’s people and the city that his people love. But fire will come down from heaven and Devour the whole army. (Revelation 20:9)
Fire from Heaven again
It first happened at Sodom and Gomorrah
“The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.” (Genesis 19:23-25) KJV
It will happen again. In a ball of celestial flame, the rebellion will be over. Once and for all, human rebellion will be wiped out of existence.
The Millennium will prove that even the best of conditions, a thousand years of peace, prosperity, safety, long life, health and abundance cannot change the wickedness of the unredeemed human heart. Only The Lord Jesus can do that! The angels that announced His birth proclaimed this.(Luke 2:13-14)
There will Never Ever Be War Again.
Never again. The Battle of Gog and Magog is earth’s last and final battle. Immediately following the Battle of Gog and Magog will be the Great White Throne Judgment and the assignment to Heaven or the Lake of Fire. (Rev. 20:9-15)
*The location of these people are drawn from the names of Gog, Magog, Meshech and Tubal and is not located in Russia as many think, but rather in an area south of Russia in northeastern Asia.
Two Separate Battles
This Battle of Gog and Magog in Rev. chapter 20 must not be confused with the Battle ofArmageddon in chapter 16. The millennial age lies between them. The Battle of Gog and Magog is the battle of the Great Day of God Almighty. Thus it eradicates all sin and rebellion from this planet. God has proven in each age that the natural man is unsubmissive
and grows worse and worse as time goes on. He must be annihilated.
