Matthew 7:24-27

Revelation Chapter Twenty


1 I saw an angel come from heaven who

Carried the key to the deep pit and held

A giant chain. 2 He seized the dragon, that


Old snake the devil, Satan−and bound him fast

Fast for one thousand years. 3 He cast him in

The pit, and locked and sealed it over him,


So that a thousand years would pass before

The dragon could again deceive the nations.

But after that, he must be set free for


A little while, 4 and I saw thrones where sat

The ones who had received the right to judge.

I saw the souls of those who’d had their heads


Cut off because they’d told of Jesus and

Had preached God’s message—the same souls who had

Not idolized the beast or his own image


And had refused to let its mark be put

Upon their hands or foreheads. 5 They’re the first

Raised back to life and they will reign with Christ


A thousand years, 6 and they are blessed and holy.

The second death lacks power over them,

And they’ll be priests of God and Christ, and they


Will reign with them a thousand years.

The other dead weren’t resurrected ‘til

A thousand years had passed, 7 and when


The thousand years are over, Satan will

Be set free from his prison 8 and will go

To fool the nations at far ends of earth,


Both Gog and Magog, to assemble them

For battle, with as many followers

As grains of sand along the beach, 9 and they


Will march across the earth and they’ll surround

The camp of saints and the beloved city,

But fire will fall from heaven and consumed


The army; 10 and the devil, who deceived

Them, will be thrown into the fiery lake

With burning sulfur, which is the same lake


The beast and pseudo prophet had been thrown in.

They will be tortured day and night forever.

11 I saw a great white throne, and someone


Who sat on it, and from his face the earth

And sky did try to run away, but they

Had nowhere they could go. 12 I saw the dead,


The small and great, stand in front of the throne

And books were opened, and another book,

The book of life, was opened, and the dead


Were judged by what those books said they

Had done. 13 The sea gave up the dead in it,

And death and hell gave up their dead, too. Each


Was judged by what they’d done, 14 and death and hell

Were cast into the lake of fire, which is

The second death, 15 for anyone whose name


Was not found written in the book of life,

That man was thrown into the lake of fire.
