    Satan has a trend, which is to deceive humans, and he also has a trend to start a Global Kingdom, Satan uses the same mode of operation which history has proved. Before Noah's flood he ran rife hence why the flood took place because of the human following of his lies. After the flood his control was Babylon, and God changed the language of Babylon to many languages and caused the Babylonian Kingdom to collapse also where all races and languages originated. His present Global Kingdom is the New World Order that is stretching its tentacles for Global control. God will again destroy this soon.Satan will be prevented from this point on from deceiving Nations for a 1000yrs, but will be loosed again to go and deceive nations again and the Kingdom he intends again is called Babylon, then the end of this earth takes place including Satan and all that rebel and follow him, humans

    Babylon is setup three time "Was "Is" "To come" then goes into perdition at the end (after a thousand years)

    Revelation says the saints will reign (rule) with Christ for a thousand years (Rev 20:4), yet I'm not certain who they will be ruling over.  I think Satan is released one last time for a final purging before the judgment seat of Christ is manifested, bringing in the final New Heavens and New Earth.  It is said that Satan will, for one last time, go out to deceive the nations again, bringing them together to surround the Holy City (Jerusalem).  There won't be a war at this time, as Revelation states fire comes from the heavens and devours them all (Rev 20:7-9).  We don't always understand God's ways, but He knows all things (1 John 3:20).  The Bible says we only know in part now, until He comes.  At that time we will understand (1 Cor 13:12).

    During Christ's 1000 year reign, the saints are indeed reigning with Him. They are reigning over those who were saved (coming to know the Lord) through the seven year tribulation. The tribulation saints will continue to have children. Those children will grow up and being of free will, will need to chose to follow Christ or satan. When satan is released, he will lead those who have chosen him to go up against Jesus and the Holy City. At this time, satan, and those that followed him will be banished to the lake of fire for all eternity.

    Revelation is made up by a guy who lived in a cave. It's fiction.

    Hi Carole:
    I think the answer to your question Carole comes down to those who take the bible as 'God's Word" so everything in it must be believed or true.
    And those, like myself, who see it as a fantastic book of Jewish myths and folklore along with the Greeks fables of a 'perfect {sinless}' man.
    It is a fact that John was outcast to an island because he would not stop preaching Christianity.  He was a fanatic and when he wrote the Book of Revelation he was probably pretty piss at the Romans who were the Christians mortal enemies.  He wrote one of the world's best horror story of all time.  Satan is always so much powerful then Christians, even God can't keep a 'bad man' down.
    In all, I think it is all a terrible myth that people make true because they believe it is God's Infallible Word.  NOT!
