|<< Revelation 20 >>|
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
1And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
And he laid hold on the dragon, the serpent of old, which is the Devil and Satan and bound him a thousand years
and cast him into the bottomless pit and shut him up and set a seal upon it, that he should deceive the Gentiles no more, until the thousand years should be fulfilled; and after it is necessary that he be loosed a little while.
And I saw thrones, and those who sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them; and I saw
the souls of those that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the word of God and who had not worshipped the beast neither its image neither had received its
mark upon their foreheads or in their hands; and they shall live and reign with Christ the thousand years.
But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is
the first resurrection.
Blessed and holy is
he that has part in the first resurrection; on such the second death has no authority, but they shall be priests of God and of the Christ and shall reign with him a thousand years.
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison
and shall go out to deceive the Gentiles which are upon the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle; the number of whom is
as the sand of the sea.
And they went up on the breadth of the earth and compassed the camp of the saints about and the beloved city; and fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are
, and they shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11And I saw a great white throne and him that was seated upon it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and their place was not found.
12And I saw the dead, great and small, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened; which is the book of life; and the dead were judged by those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and Hades delivered up the dead which were in them; and the judgment of each one was according to their works.
14And Hades and death were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
