1000 years of peace. Satan or the Red Dragon is under God’s control for 1,000 years. Then he will be let loose for a while to test the nations one last time, after which he will never be seen by God’s people again.
The period during which Satan is confined and God reigns upon the earth is described in many parts of the Bible, especially Isaiah (e.g. 2:1-5), as being a blessed time of great peace and the rebuilding of the earth after the devastations of Armageddon.
After this time of a 1000 years, the saints came alive again and reigned with God and Jesus.
Check out in the Bible reading below what some of the saints of God will be doing during those thousand years.
20:2 The Angel captured the dragon, that ancient serpent, also known as the devil and Satan, and tied him up for a thousand years. 3 He threw him into the bottomless pit, locked it, and sealed it over him to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were over. After that, he must be set free for a little while.
The Vision of the First Resurrection
4 Then I saw thrones, and those who sat on them were given authority to judge. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshipped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or hands. They came back to life and ruled with the Messiah for a thousand years. 5 The rest of the dead did not come back to life until the thousand years were over. This is the first resurrection. 6 How blessed and holy are those who participate in the first resurrection! The second death has no power over them. They will be priests of God and the Messiah, and will rule with him for a thousand years.
The Vision of the Final Judgment
7 When the thousand years are over, Satan will be freed from his prison. 8 He will go out to deceive Gog and Magog, the nations at the four corners of the earth, and gather them for war. They are as numerous as the sands of the seashore. 9 They marched over the broad expanse of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. Fire came from God out of heaven and burned them up, 10 and the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet were. They will be tortured day and night forever and ever.
