Revelation 20.7-10

 

158

When the thousand years are up, Satan will be released to work his deceits again and gather multitudinous forces (called Gog and Magog) for a great battle (Rev. 20.1-8).

The narrative suddenly switches to the past tense:  “Fire came down from heaven and consumed them [Gog and Magog], and Devil, who had deceived them, was thrown into the Lake of Fire where the Beast and the False Prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night through ages of ages” (Rev. 20.9-10).
