Today you should read: Revelation 20:7-10
Today’s my last post writing for this cycle of JumpStart. We launched JumpStart as a church in January of 2011 and have had hundreds of readers every day. This week we’re completing a cycle through the entire Bible. Some of you have followed and read all the way through with us – others have picked up along the journey.
A few weeks back I asked for comments as to whether we should start over and do a new cycle of JumpStart – your answers were breath taking. We were able to read comment after comment of how God has used this in your lives. I was blessed beyond measure. So… beginning January 1, 2016, we’ll start a new cycle through the Bible. Meanwhile, we’ll be posting some devotions we like a lot and would love for you to read about Thanksgiving and then on the Advent – Jesus birth. I hope you enjoy them and will share them with your family and friends. These would be great to read with your family.
In Revelation 20 we read all about the final defeat of Satan – our archenemy. Remember, after he is defeated at the Battle of Armageddon (at the end of the tribulation period), he is cast into the bottomless pit for 1000 years (during the time of the millennium).
Verse 7-8 tells us that after this Satan will be let out of prison and will go and deceive the nations one last time. God will rain down fire from heaven and defeat his opposing army. Then he will be thrown into the Lake of Fire (hell) and be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Satan is a defeated foe – the ending is already written. Jesus wins!
