“And I will put enmity between you [serpent/dragon] and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head [Antichrist], and you shall bruise His heel [feet/end-time Body of Believers].” (Gen. 3:15) NKJV; intrpl. mine

.
After Messiah treading the winepress at the Battle of Armageddon, as examined in the previous Revelation article, the secular and religious world will be stunned. The Great King will be revealed in victorious glory, and those who did so much evil, who seduced the world for Satan, will be brought to justice, much as many Nazis were when the time came for the light of truth to reveal their evils before the world.
.
In this article, we continue with the imprisonment of Satan and the False Prophet, where they will be prevented from deceiving humanity for one thousand years during the Great Sabbath millennium of Messiah. Other than a few passages that allude to the peace and justice to come, Scriptures are largely silent on the Sabbath millennium, and in the Book of Revelation this age is skipped over until Satan is released to once again gather the nations to war with Israel and deceive on the eighth millennial day from Adam (Shemini Atzereth), which is during the time of the Great White Throne Judgment. Thus, this article is largely about the Head of the Body of Believers (Messiah) fulfilling the Genesis prophecy and crushing the serpent’s head.
.
Along with the defeat of the Antichrist (i.e., the manifestation of Satan, a.k.a. Son of Perdition) and False Prophet, the spider web of global financial corruption, injustice via manipulation of the nations, with propaganda that does so much to empower the messengers of Satan, will be burned-up with nothing left.  
.
Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. (Rev. 20:1-3) NKJV 
.
For millennia the spirit of Satan has gone to and from the earth, tempting, leading national powers, and accusing the people of the Lord before God’s throne, even since ancient empires that ruled over the Hebrews. Halfway into the Apocalypse, c. 2026 A.D., a decisive war will break-out in the spiritual realm over the Law of God and the fate of Israel. When the spirit of Satan and his forces lose, and Michael casts him out to be confined to the earthly realm, he and his messengers will bring hell on Earth in rage of being spiritually rejected- because of his hatred for the nation of Israel and those who spread the prophetic Gospel of Jesus Christ: the awaited Messiah as King of Jerusalem.
.   
Clues are given of when Satan will be cast out: (1) He will learn that his time is short, and (2) he will be enraged by Zion and those who have the Testimony of Yeshua and the commandments of God. Why? He is enraged at seeing the truth prevail on Earth, and even great angels desire to look into some things in which God declares to His elect in this world. The “Testimony of Jesus,” again, is the “spirit of prophecy,” and by the Spirit we learn of a mystery on Earth that settles the appointed times and mysteries of God and Scriptures. Satan will seek to change the Divine times and prevent prophecies’ fulfillment, but he will fail. We bind these things together in truth on Earth, and they are bound in truth in Heaven, bringing victory for the Word of God- the mystery in which He has sewn in Heaven and Earth. The Lord’s truths will be manifest for the living, and all deception will be cleared away for justice. This revealed truth will enrage Satan and his followers, yet their appointed time is determined and cannot be stalled nor stopped. 
.   
Consider the battle in heaven to be a bit like a wager or a bet. Consider it a riddle. Consider the prophecies and the signs of the Bible as a chessboard for the immortals, and God, having the Law, is the righteous Judge. Some people are not graceful losers, and in anger they act out their rage. When Satan battled Eve, he deceived her over the Word of God with corrupted/twisted knowledge. When Satan subtly battled God over the character of Job, he challenged the righteous judgments of God. When Satan stood to oppose the high priest Joshua (Yoshua), he resisted the proper interpretation of the works of God for Israel’s restoration. When Satan battled the Messiah, he used the Word of God, seeking to fulfill it on his own terms. Satan is called the “Author of Confusion” because he twists the Word of God to sew his confusion and deception in the world and among the elect.
.
Victory in the spiritual realm means that the messengers of God’s Truth will prevail with clarity, and this will enrage the Author of Confusion. When the waters of the Word are made crystal-clear, Satan loses his power, first in Heaven then on Earth. The angels have desired a closer look and better understanding of the works done in Messiah and to know the prophetic times thereof; when His times are manifest in clarity, unifying the elect in the authority of the Kingdom, Satan will know that he has finally lost, and he will seek to destroy the holders of these truths by force. As for us, force does not bring about the finally victory, but mortal victory follows victory of Divine Truth.

Moedim Paradigm, Top Week Is Adam-Great Sabbath, Image Mine
Moedim, Top Week Adam-Great Sabbath, IM

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, though for now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith- the salvation of your souls. Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ [1st coming] and the glories that would follow [2nd coming]. To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which have now been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven- things which angels desire to look into. Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (1 Pet. 3-13) NKJV; emp. & intrpl. mine (N.B., the apostles look for a future salvation at the Revelation of Christ- His arrival in the world, and the times being revealed to us.)

When the glory of the truth of the Word begins to mount, the angels of adversity will begin to act out their fear of damnation, in rage as religious lies everywhere come crashing down (all the hiding places of demons), for there is great power in the union and completion of the Body of Christ under the everlasting truths of the Law of God. When the Hebrew roots of the Word are reunited with the branches of the faithful in Messiah, new fruits of healing will blossom for the healing of the world. Corruption will fade as when the springtime sun and soft rains wrestle to take back the earth from the dead things that decay in the power of the winter season.  
.
And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the Word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. (Rev. 20:4-5) NKJV; emp. mine
.
Notice that this millennium has not yet come, as if the nations, at any point in history until now, have ever been free from satanic corruption. Catholic A-millennialism and Post-millennialism are false doctrines that claim we are already living in the messianic millennium under the rule of their popes (Roman bishops in Christ’s stead), but clearly Satan has not yet been bound in Hell. Righteous judgment has yet to reign in our world for any substantial period of time, not from their papas and not from national leaders, but the world has always suffered corruption and corrupt judgments. The Mark of the Beast has not come, nor has there been a resurrection of the faithful martyrs.
.
Why has the Roman Catholic Church and so many Protestant denominations confused something so simple? They hate Israel and do not believe the prophecies about Christ returning to reign on the Throne of David from Jerusalem. They spiritualize away all the prophecies that they loathe, and they have forgotten the Key of Knowledge and coming Great Sabbath, which the lesser Sabbaths serve as foreshadowing signs. The Book of Hebrews makes it quite clear that we await a seventh day of restored paradise, and the Moedim Paradigm illustrates what Paul was explaining. Yet for many people (both the learned and ignoramuses), their religion trumps plain biblical teachings (see Heb. 3; 4).
.
Moreover, Satan has not yet been bound; nations are still being deceived in a web of lies; those beheaded by the False Prophet Mohammad and his children have not be resurrected; and the Romans bishop heads of Catholicism do not (and will not) reign in the messianic millennium in place of Christ. We await fulfillment of the millennial Sabbath, after the revelation of Christ during the Battle of Armageddon in northern Israel.
.
The serpent can twist God’s Word all he wants, but the time is still appointed for his imprisonment and that of his messengers (see Matt. 8:29). Who are Satan’s messengers? Those who twist God’s Word, distort news and truths, and practice their false religions or atheism for their own glory- many doing so for their churches, personal power, self-glorification, and wealth in this present evil world. Who else are his messengers? Politicians and judges who practice injustices and deception among the nations, resisting God’s will for the world. Their time is ending, and it comes very soon. All the deceptive messengers of Satan, from secular Hollywood producers/actors to religious institutions filled with those who love lies, will be cast down rather than transcend the will and glory of our Elohim YHVH.

MANNA/MOEDIM IM
MANNA/MOEDIM IM

The above passage explains that this will be the first resurrection of the martyred flesh. There is but one earthly resurrection of the dead in Revelation, which is before the last resurrection at the Great White Throne Judgment- after the millennium of the Great King (although his dominion is an everlasting dominion).

Teachers who have installed two, three, or four miraculous resurrections into their interpretations, making their false doctrines of the Apocalypse fit their rapture beliefs, are thoroughly deceived. This they do because they have not discerned or accepted that others are born again for the coming Kingdom through the matrix of womanhood (cf. John 21:22; 1 Thess. 4:17). Hence, they must distort Scriptures to make them fit their eschatology.  

Again, only the martyrs of the Apocalypse are miraculously resurrected in the flesh, at the last trumpet; Scripture clearly proclaims this truth, not merely I the scribe. Others are awakened to truths at Christ’s coming, for the veil will be removed from the blind nations. The resurrected elect are those who are slain by the Beast and beheaded by the children of the False Prophet/Islam. Israel is spiritually resurrected in Christ (see Rom. 11:15), and all of the great patriarchs and matriarchs, all elect, are born again through natural birth for the Kingdom of Heaven (see Matt. 3:5-8). There is but one physical resurrection from the dead at the Lord’s coming; the second resurrection is on the 8th day for the Great White Throne. (Lord let these simple truths register in the minds of teachers who teach otherwise.)

Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep [remain dead], but we shall all be changed- in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1 Cor. 51:52) NKJV
.
The beheading of the saints of the Apocalypse validates the identity of the False Prophet nations of Islam for those in doubt; rarely is anyone beheaded in today’s world except by the children of Mohammad. This is what the children of the False Prophet, who gives his power to the Antichrist, will do to anyone who will not worship his religious and monetary image as the world’s messiah of Islamic prophecies. (NB: Paul counted himself with those who are alive and remain when Christ comes with the resurrected saints, but how? He is born again.)
.
Mohammad is the evil father of this practice for all Muslims, having first beheaded 600-900 Jews in the Massacre of Banu Qurayza (Medina, Saudi Arabia c. 627 A.D.), simply because they did not profess him a prophet and traded with his enemies in Mecca. After the Jewish fortress surrendered to the false prophet Mohammad and his murderous band of thieves and assassins (about 3,000 footmen and 30 horsemen), all males from the age of puberty, and one faithful woman, were lined-up in the marketplace and beheaded before the other women and children; the remaining Jews became slaves and were divided as loot for his followers to do with as they pleased, some of whom were later traded for more weapons and horses. The great False Prophet claimed that this beheading of Jews was commanded by Gabriel; thus, beheading has long been an intrinsic weapon of their religious fervor to this very day.
.
For those who have not read previous MOTS articles, the Bible clearly reveals who the religious-appearing ram with “two horns” of power is, which is also called the “False Prophet.” Islam vents death as the Dragon does, and his two horns of power are Sunni and Shia.  
.
“Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.” (Rev. 21:6) NKJV
.
These are the most honored ones, who let not even Death prevent them from preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven; they take Messiah and the Word everywhere, unashamed and unperturbed by the forces of the damned. Some are Arabs walking in the Light in the den of Satan, risking their lives to teach the Gospel and love of Christ in Lebanon and other nations of the False Prophet. Indeed, all of the Lord’s elect are glorified at His coming, but I am convinced that a special glory awaits those true martyrs who give there all against the powers of Satan. True martyrs are those who offer-up their lives for preaching the truth, not as the demons of Islam and their father Satan who murder unsuspecting innocents and call the deaths of their own bodies, in the process, “martyrdom.” Their lies and injustices will not stand another generation, and glory will be given back to the saints of the Most High.
.   
As for Islam, their forces are rising in our day against the nations. Surely they know in their spirits, and have felt and heard, what is about to be birthed, and their hatred boils over in preparation for the final war. This evil spirit of the False Prophet Mohammad will not die down, but it will continue to flex its muscles to bring terror into the hearts of those whom the Lord is raising-up to stand with Zion. They know in their spirits what is about to come forward, and their time comes to an end; yet they are too blinded by their religious pride and hatred of Christians and Jews to let the biblical truths come to the forefront of their minds. Arabian people, whom God is calling out of their death cult, are quickly killed by Muslims for daring to question the worldwide lie, but Messiah comes to put an end to this.
.
They cannot stop it nor His coming judgment, not with beheadings, not with rage, not by might, not by terroristic attacks in marketplaces, not by homicide bombers, not by self-victimization, not by deception and propaganda, and indeed by no means; their spirits are becoming manifest as the hatred of the Dragon, of Satan, but they simply cannot hinder the Lord YHVH’s victory for Truth. Despite all their schemes and rage, the religion of the False Prophet will be destroyed in everlasting shame at the coming of the true Messiah. Then, in that day, the remaining Arabian people will be free, raised in righteousness, and no longer walk in fear. Peace, biblical truths, and justice will come to the entire world, liberated from evil, for all who remain or are raised by the Lord in the world.
.
Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. (Rev. 20:7-8) NKJV 
.
Some readers of Revelation may wonder why Satan will be released after the Great Sabbath millennium. Again, for new readers, there was a boundary of time set on sinful man from the beginning: 1,000 years of life (see article on Adam and Eve), even until all sin is destroyed. Also, there is an 8th day judgment that must come after the Sabbath to put an end to death and spirits still in rebellion against the atonement offered in the sacrifice of the Lamb of God.
.
Time ultimately brings about new generations that will rebel and deny things that happened long before them. The Great Sabbath is a refinement process for the world, which is why the Great King is foreseen ruling and guiding the nations with a rod or iron, and the curse of no rain comes upon the rebellious national heads who will not keep the international Feast of Tabernacles. Times are forgotten and words are counted as myth. These articles I am writing, even if every detail was proven true, will mean very little to many people living one thousand years from now. No one during the immediate centuries following Christ was so foolish as to claim that He never lived, but now how many people count all the books, letters, and even the life of Christ to be myths? As long as new generations are born into the world and nations healed, there is nothing true that some will not seek to discredit, even with the Great King walking among us- especially if one nation is favored above all others and provokes their jealousy.
.
Once again, for those of you interpreting the prophecies, do not twist and bend the Scriptures. Do not make them fit your own interpretations and preconceived notions of the Great White Throne; let the Scriptures fit as they are. After the millennium is the final battle of the Kingdom of Israel, against the gathered forces under Gog and Magog. This is the 8th day cutting-away and the final judgment of God on the world, at least in the appointed times given to us in Scripture. Has Christ already reigned on Earth for a millennium with His saints? No, so please stop teaching this and confusing those who are learning prophecy! (Teachers are held to a higher standard, and every false interpretation, which they continue to teach after being corrected, will be required of them.)
.
This does not mean that Russia and eastern nations will not play their parts in the Battle of Armageddon, but before the eighth day they are not the biblical Gog and Magog. Ezekiel wrote of Gog and Magog coming against unwalled cities in the Kingdom of Israel, when they are living in quietness and peace, which should make it clear to everyone that this will occur after the Great Sabbath, since Israel today is not at peace, and the nation had to build a great wall because of the terrorism of Palestinian Muslims.
.   
In the Book of Ezekiel, God describes the messianic Kingdom before the war with Gog and Magog, and it parallels the Book of Revelation. First, God makes two sticks into one; He joins the Jewish stick of Judah with the Ephraim stick- the latter as another tribal name for the ten northern tribes of Israel. He forms one gathered nation (see Ezek. 37:11-21). Second, God has one Great King, likened to David, reign over His nation, and they will live there forever and multiply (see Ezek. 37:22-25). Finally, in the passage God declares that they will have the everlasting covenant of peace, with God’s tabernacle among them, which means the remaining Jews will believe the Gospel. All these things are yet to come. They have yet to manifest, and this is crucial to discern concerning Gog and Magog.

Messiah To Rebuild Temple, Muslim Dome of Rock Currently Pollutes Temple Mount
Messiah To Rebuild The Temple, Muslim Dome of Rock Currently Pollutes Temple Mount, PDI

“All nations also will know that I, the LORD [YHVH], sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary [Temple] is in their midst forevermore.” (Ezek. 37:28) NKJV; intrpl. mine

When the Lord had the prophet prophesy against Gog and Magog, with the nations gathered with them against Israel, He first made it clear that it is after many years (the Sabbath millennium), when Israel is sitting peaceful and righteous (see Ezek. 38:8). The nations interrupt Israel’s rest after the Great Sabbath, covering the land of Israel (see Ezek. 38:9-12), seeking to plunder the great wealth of the Kingdom. This is when God’s wrath and jealously will be stirred once more (see Ezek. 38:18-19). An earthquake will again shake the earth, and the multitude of nations gathered against the righteous nations will fall slain on the mountains of Israel for the last time recorded in Scripture.
.
“And I will bring him into judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many people who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.” (Ezek. 38:22-23) NKJV
.
Why will people not know that YHVH is God? Because Satan will be loosed after the millennium to begin deceiving nations once again. Once again there will be the slain to feed the birds. Again enemies will be given to the fire. Yet from this point on, nobody will be allowed to profane the name of the Lord YHVH, for all will know and accept that He is the Holy One of Israel, dwelling in their midst (see Ezek. 39:7). For seven years the elect and saved will burn their weapons of war, and for seven months they will gather and bury the people from the nations who will again be deceived by Satan after his release (see Ezek. 39:9-16).
.
Why do so many Christian theologians confuse this rebellion of Satan that will come after the millennium, I do not know. It is very plainly written in Revelation, and the sequence of events is plain in the Book of Ezekiel.
.
Jerusalem PDI,
Jerusalem PDI,

They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city [Jerusalem]. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever. (Rev. 20:9) NKJV; intrpl. mine

The Lord does not specify, at least from my reading, when Satan will bring these nations from the four corners of the world against Israel, only that it is after the Great Sabbath millennium, perhaps even right away. Yet we do know that Satan is loosed after the millennium, on the 8th great day, to start deceiving again for the final battle. Many things are left for another age, for the works of God carry on through history.
.
The mystery in which we have been given to prepare for the Apocalypse seems to be too much already for too many readers to comprehend. As for regular MOTS readers, please pardon my scornful tone on this, yet realize that people have distorted these truths and how much division and false doctrines their distortions have caused. If the Bible says that the War of Gog and Magog is after the millennium, let it be settled rather than twisted.
.
Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and heaven fled away. And there was no place found for them.  And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and the books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. Anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. (Rev. 20:11-15) NKJV; emp. mine
.
For the coming Eight Day Assembly (the Shemini Atzereth fulfillment), there is a corporeal judgment on the world at the final battle of Gog and Magog, but the spiritual counterpart is set before the very Throne of God, which is not of this world. It is not for me, the scribe, to better explain this, and much of it remains a mystery. The 8th day is a very mysterious day, which seems to leave those who search the mysteries guessing.
.
In this way, we are like the prophets of old, seeking to comprehend the infinite mysteries of God. Somewhere out there, in another world and perhaps for another time, more is known of the moedim mystery of God and His infinite works. From all the Divine mysteries given unto us- those in which I have revealed with His correlating framework of time- I am reminded that time itself is merely a concept revealed from the infinite mind of God. Many mysteries and glorious works will await the ages far beyond our current ability to prophetically view; to us there is given the sign of the Great Sabbath, along with the soon arrival of the everlasting dominion of the Great King.
What does seem very clear is that the Great Mystery of God will be known, with all of His signs of the times, and death will- from the time of the GWTJ- become a thing of the past for those inheriting eternal life. The last enemy will be cast away and destroyed.
