The Second Coming Is When?

The rest of chapter 20 is as follows.

-- Click To Expand/Collapse Bible Verses -- Rev ch20v7-10
Rev 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
Rev 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
Rev 20:9 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.
Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever

Now we see there is no scripture indicating that the judgement does not immediately follow the battle of Armageddon when the world (gog and magog) fight against the rider and his army. The "fire from heaven" sent by God that consumes His enemies "devours" the enemies armies in the same manner as the "spiritually hot" (c.f. the least of the host - the angel stood in the sun.) host of heaven descends to fight alongside the rider - "devouring" much flesh as all the fowls in the midst of heaven do in Ch19.

The battle of Gog and Magog shows the world surrounding the camp of God's people - in view is the full 42 months with which the beast is given space to encroach upon the salvation and calling of Jesus Christ. Fire comes down in the same manner (as the same event) in which the city of Mystery Babylon is destroyed.

We saw the dual fulfillment of the woman and dragon sign in the heavens was both a history lesson and a revealing that the beasts of satanic origin are actually the spiritual fruit of the mystery of iniquity, the work of the dragon as puppet master behind the curtain. In view here we also see that those of the beast and false prophet, (which are in the lake of fire (cast in alive) already and yet not completely in "torment" today as they that are yet alive in them still exist inside the Father's octal.) are actually still without repentance, and despite the grace offered to all those in these systems of the end days they are in actuality doing the will of the dragon (satan).

In fact the thousand years are an essential part of the divinely authored plan of salvation direct to the individual believer - of which the satanic seduction of the numbered 660 as over the senses of an individual and the 6 states of the dialectic facilitated over them is the satanic copy. The fire brought down from heaven (Ch20:v9) in this sense is the same as the fire which comes forth out of the mouths of the two witnesses, by which the lies of the serpent spirits of the sixth trumpet must be countered. The four winds of heaven, or the four angels bound in Euphrates are opposed by the testimony of the two witnesses, yet the witnesses are overpowered when their ministry is complete.

Likewise this is the exact same scene but in parallel here. In this case it is satan who is the serpent and God issues the fire which burns the forces of the serpent. (here the armies of the serpents are men, rather than formed of locust "spirits".) The Lord will fight the physical variant of the previous spiritual battle the witnesses had fought with the serpents and scorpions. That the elect are sealed and satan is not loosed over them - that he is bound against harming them shows that this last battle is too much for the individual - God will take full satisfaction in preserving His people and of the destruction of His enemies. (We have no calling to exercise wrath in God's name.) He will do so when His testimony (of this book of prophecy) is completed also! (And the salvation is completed when the thousand years expire.)

In parallel to the two witnesses standing firm in the truth (until death) with the fire issuing from their mouths to devour their enemies, we have the rider on the white horse with the sharp two edged sword coming out of his mouth. (c.f. His name, the "Word of God") which is truly in parallel "fire from heaven." The events of Armageddon and this final gog/magog battle are meritable to be the same.

Also we have to acknowledge the three deceiving spirits which issue from the mouth of the beast, false prophet and the dragon in the previous account of the battle at Armageddon. We equated these with the requirement that satan needs to construct his devices to deceive. The sea of glass, residing apart from the wrath of God, reconfigures the sea into a "single" octal despite the seals having been opened: The octal sea contracts as if by a winepress into the sole octal of the right hand, placing the enemies of God as only within the "four beasts about the throne."

The three spirits are those that sit in and obscure the place of "unity" as if they were the "oil" of the balances, which is the sole descriptor of the resulting fire column in the algebra. (and necessary for the pale horse construction of 666) Otherwise there is but one "bow" of antichrist at this time, whereas when there was once the wider (as in 30 octals) sea before the wrath - then from the outpouring of wrath the sea is "turned into blood of a dead man". There was required for the pale horse at least the potential for shifting unity, whereas these spirits encroach on the one single octal (the sun octal) a false "unity" in order to deceive the world into yet again following the dragon into the inheritance of the false prophet and the beast, the lake of fire.
