No trial for Satan in the end

 A millennium is a 1000-year period of time. Between the Second Coming of Jesus which will end this evil age and the creation of the New Heaven and New Earth, that time of universal peace on earth will be sandwiched in. It will be the same terrestrial globe we are now living on before it is renovated, but it will not be in the same condition as now; for the curse will be lifted. Which means there will be no sickness, poverty, pain or untimely death during that time—for those who do not rebel. But, the fact that we resurrected saints under Christ will rule with a “rod of iron” those survivors of the Battle of Armageddon implies that some during that thousand-year slice of eternity will not right-up-front willingly fit in with the absolute rule of that Total Theocracy—God rule.

Many people will rebel with Satan

Angel Michael expelling Lucifer from Heaven

That next verse is Revelation 19:20. First, the Antichrist and his false prophet, who will deceive with his false miracles those who receive the mark of the beast, and those who worship that image the false prophet will have made of the beast—Antichrist—will be captured and cast alive into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone. Will angels handle that chore, or will Christ Himself do the honors? Consider Matthew 10:28.

Christ will not be alone in the battle of Armageddon

 Revelation 19:13 tells us that White-Horse-Rider was clothed with a robe dipped in blood. That was not His blood, but the blood of all those slain with that double-edged sword coming out of His mouth (verse 15). Christ’s blood has already been deposited on the altar of the heavenly Holy of Holies (Hebrews 9:12). Isaiah 63:3 prophesied that very event and identifies the blood that will stain Christ’s robe in that battle.      In the same verse, the White-Horse-Rider is identified as the Word of God. Our Lord was known as the Word of God before He became flesh (John 1:1, 14, 1 John 5:7), and maintains that same title in Revelation. Christ’s manhood did not alter his Godhood.
