Satan's Final Rebellion During The Millennium

Question:
I have a question for you.  After Satan is released from the 1000 years in the hole (abyss, pit) how can he get us to follow him?   i thought we would be done with sin yet we will be tempted?  With Jesus standing there, people would leave his side to follow Satan willingly?  How scary is that.  Does the bible say if we will ALL be on earth.  I donít know about you, but I'm not leaving my Father's side at the end of that 1000 years!!

That is some scary stuff.  i hope you can help me with this.  i read your last question and answer email sent to me and i have been puzzled about this every since.

Thanks for your time
 

Answer:
The simple fact is, when Satan is released, he will find many who will follow Him (Revelation 20:7&8) .  It can't be explained or figured out that's just what the Bible says will happen.  It's a fact.  It's the same Satan that convinced Adam and Eve to sin willingly.  I would have to say that no human has ever been closer to the Father than they were.  Enoch may have walked with God but Adam and Eve truly had a Father daughter and son relationship for which there was none other.  They were it, His first human creation.

Being blessed is not man's problem it's getting his way (selfishness, envy, covetousness, etc.).  That will be the catalyst that will cause man to turn from God to Satan even in the face of abundant blessing.  The awareness of selfish desires will be the fall of man.  We are born with a sin nature.  That won't go away during the Millennium.  Satan will only bring to light and accentuate those desires.  He will give confidence to those who already want to rebel against God to now go through with it.  Many will want to rebel against God throughout the Millennium but will lack the confidence to do so.  That's why God will have to rule the world with a rod of iron (Revelation 2:27; 12:5; 19:15). 

Coming into the Millennium, everyone will be saved, but generations down the road their hearts will rebel.  New generations will be born that will only give lip service to the Lord.  It will not be immediately, but like all times of revival, those who are not committed will rebel with their hearts .  How far into the 1000 year reign of Christ this will happen is anyone's guess, but many will be eager.  The Bible says that this rebellion will be so vast that it will be as the sand of the sea in number (Revelation 20:8). 

However, the Lord will be fully aware of Satanís plan and the rebellious heart of man. He will use this last rebellion as a means of separating those who truly love Him from those who are false professors.

The Bible says this battle will end in a flash of lightning! God will send fire down from heaven and consume the armies of Satan even before they reach the great city (Revelation 20:9).

It is most likely that only distant descendants of those who came out of the tribulation period will be fooled by Satan into rebelling against God.  No Christian will be in that number and especially none that were raptured prior to the start of the tribulation period.  Those Christians will have glorified bodies and will rule and reign with Christ (Revelation 5:10).

Are you ready to meet the Lord?  If not, your time is running out!
