The Final Overthrow of Satan - The Spiral of Satan
T he Spiral of Satan
Jesus saw Satan fall from the third to the second heaven.
The coming conflict between Christ and Satan, the most powerful in the history of the universe, lies just ahead of us. There will be war in heaven, that is, the second heaven. Satan will be forever ejected from outer space. He will spiral downward to the earth.
And will the inhabitants of the earth be aware of such an occurrence? Satan himself will be locked in the first heaven, never again to see the second and third heavens with which he is so familiar. The earth’s atmosphere is all he will ever see of heaven!
At the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, Satan will be cast into the bottomless pit, again a downward spiral, for one thousand years.
At the conclusion of the millennium, he will be loosed from his prison for a brief period. He will seek, yet one final time, to influence the resurrected dead, (the rest of the dead, the unsaved dead, are not alive during the millennial reign of Christ), against the Lord Jesus Christ.
In a desperate, all-out confrontation, he attempts to hurl everything at his disposal at the new Jerusalem.
Fire comes down from heaven.
Satan and his followers are cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, there to be tormented day and night forever and ever.
There he will remain - for all eternity!
