Revelation 20 – 1000 year reign, final test & Judgment of them that obeyed not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
Satan is loosed again to deceive the world. His release from the bottomless pit where his angels had been held captive for 2000 years occurs AFTER the full 1000 year Millennial Reign of Christ had occurred. He then goes forward to deceive again for a short time (perhaps four or five generations as demonstrated after the Flood prior to God's separation of races and nations at Babel). This is explained more thorough below after Verse 8.
 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Pretty clear here that only believers who were MURDERED for Christ or were willing to be with a pure heart before God will reign with Him. Read it again, only the 24 elders and those beheaded for the witness of Christ will rule and reign during the 1000 year Kingdom.
 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
*VERSE 4 IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION and only for those who lost their lives in this fake, temporary world for the witness of Christ.
 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ and shall reign with him a thousand years.
**This marks the beginning of our Lord Jesus Christ's Reign on earth as King of Kings and Lord or Lords.
The physical inhabitants of the earth at this time will be those nations and individuals whom do not take the mark and whom had provided aid to those whom are persecuted and murdered for their testimony of Jesus Christ.
Our Lord separates those whom provided aid and comfort to His Saints from the wicked whom are still living after Armageddon. This is the Sheep and Goat Judgment that lasts 45 days after Armageddon as described also by God through His prophet Daniel.
Matthew 25:  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
*The earth after our Lord's 1000 year Reign will be repopulated to levels far greater than before it. Remember during His Reign there will be no war, no pestilence, no famine, little disease and suffering because the wages of sin upon the earth will be subdued as a direct result of our Lord's physical Presence during this 1000 year Reign. There won't even be predatory or dangerous animals.
*However as clearly indicated and after this 1000 year Reign is complete our Lord wants to see whom will remain His once Satan is loosed again to deceive and His Rod of Iron ruler-ship is removed from the earth.
**Also keep in mind that during the Church age and among nations whom named the Name of Christ, the industrial revolution of invention propelled pride and creed rapidly among men. This sparked the end of men's understanding and acknowledgement of God. It's fake "enlightenment" caused all types of anti-Christ rebellion and vain imagination of men. I suspect that after our Lord's Reign is accomplished, Satan will swell men's pride and creed again through invention just as he did prior to our Lord's Coming at Armageddon. This short period of Satan's deception (ending in God's Wrath) will most likely be several generations just as the previous industrial revolution began the falling away before Armageddon.

 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.
*After this loosing of Satan to deceive the world again, believers whom follow our Lord on earth at this time are once again persecuted. They are once again hated for Christ's Namesake and must congregate together separating themselves from Satan's deceptive world system, this time in the Capital City of Jerusalem.
**This correlates to our Lord's destruction of the old earth where the elements shall melt with fervent heat.
 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
They stand alone before God and His Judgment with nowhere to hide, nowhere to flee.
To avoid this Judgment, read carefully the Real Gospel Page.
 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
The books mentioned here are the Books of the Bible, *primarily the New Testament Books of The Bible (note the reference below of John, Chapter 12). Your level of eternal torment in the Lake of Fire is determined by your personal life and how it measured up to God's Holy Word, the Bible. No human can ever measure up to Christ's Standards but some live less sinful lives than others so some will suffer less torment than others but all shall be tormented. We have provided information above on our Real Gospel Page on how to avoid this terrible Judgment.
 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
The verdict from this Judgment determines your level of individual torment in the Lake of Fire for ever and ever. Make no mistake however, all who die in their sins will be in torment. The Judgment described above merely determines the extremity of torment for eternity.
Our Lord stated clearly in the Gospel of John, chapter 12 that all will be judged by His Word:
He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
Not just your actions my friends, but all the secrets of your hearts will be revealed; every thought and word spoken during your lifetimes will be judged:
Luke 12: 2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
Every chance you had to know God by obeying His Gospel will be played back to you.
There will be no escape, no reprieve, no more chances! It will be TOO LATE. You will for the first time in your life understand what the word regret means.

 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
