And God himself will be among them. Revelation 21:3.


So, in Revelation 20, Satan, having been released from the pit, makes a last-ditch effort to kill off God and His people. Satan was only able to accomplish an attack of this size by deceiving the nations. If you are wondering, Revelation refers … Continue reading

They will call Jerusalem ‘The Throne of the LORD,’ and all the nations will be gathered to it. Revelation 21:2.


Let’s assume you read my last post and now have a confidence that allows you to describe how: The surviving Jews enter the millennial kingdom and become evangelists. “In that day … the survivors of Israel.” (Isaiah 4:2 NASB) “For out of Jerusalem will … Continue reading

God’s people and the beloved city, are surrounded. Revelation 20:9-15.

When the thousand-years have expired. Revelation 20:7-8.
