“And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea. And they marched up over the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and consumed them, and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”
Satan is insignificant to God!
Compared to us, Satan is an incredibly powerful being — one of the greatest angels ever created, beautiful in appearance, fearsome in ability. But compared to God, Satan is like a speck of dust on the scales.
Some time before the creation of mankind, God created the angels. Satan was one of those angels created with a mere word from God. Satan was cast out of heaven for his rebellion and has made the earth his sphere of activity, attacking the work of God in people’s lives.
But our passage today makes it clear that when Satan’s part is finished, God will simply throw him into hell. Don’t fear Satan — respect the God who made him!
