The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eight and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction. the ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom , but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast. These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings , and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful. </li></ul>

Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready .&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. </li></ul><ul><li>Then he said to me, &quot;Write, Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.&quot; And he said to me, &quot;These are the true words of God.&quot; </li></ul>

  24. 25. THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON (SHORT VERSION) <ul><li>(Rev. 19:19-21) And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. </li></ul><ul><li>And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image; those two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. </li></ul><ul><li>And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse , and all the birds were filled with their flesh. </li></ul>
  25. 26. SATAN IMPRISONED FOR 1,000 YEARS <ul><li>(Rev. 20:1-3) Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand.

  26. 27. THE MILLENIUM REIGN OF CHRIST <ul><li>(Rev. 20:4-6) Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them.

This is the first resurrection. </li></ul><ul><li>Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years . </li></ul>
  27. 28. <ul><li>Isaiah 2:1-4 : Now it will come about that, in the last days the mountain of the house of the Lord will be established as the chief of the mountains, </li></ul><ul><li>And will be raised above the hills; and all the nations will stream to it. </li></ul><ul><li>And many peoples will come and say, &quot;Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord , to the house of the God of Jacob; That He may teach us concerning His ways and that we may walk in His paths.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>For the law will go forth from Zion </li></ul><ul><li>And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. </li></ul><ul><li>And He will judge between the nations, </li></ul><ul><li>And will render decisions for many peoples; </li></ul><ul><li>And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; </li></ul><ul><li>Nation will not lift up sword against nation, </li></ul><ul><li>And never again will they learn war. </li></ul>
  28. 29. <ul><li>Isaiah 11:6-9 : </li></ul><ul><li>And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, </li></ul><ul><li>And the leopard will lie down with the young goat, </li></ul><ul><li>And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; </li></ul><ul><li>And a little boy will lead them. </li></ul><ul><li>Also the cow and the bear will graze, </li></ul><ul><li>Their young will lie down together </li></ul><ul><li>And the lion will eat straw like the ox. </li></ul><ul><li>The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra, </li></ul><ul><li>And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper's den. </li></ul><ul><li>They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain, </li></ul><ul><li>For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD </li></ul><ul><li>As the waters cover the sea . </li></ul>
  29. 30. <ul><li>When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison , and will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war; the number of them is like the sand of the seashore . And they came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and devoured them . </li></ul><ul><li>And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. </li></ul>The Millenium Revolt : (Rev. 20:7-10)
