In his vision in Revelation 20, the Apostle John records how Satan will be bound and cast into the abyss for the 1,000 years of the Millennium, while at the same time the saints will be reigning over this present earth. Hallelujah!
But, is this something that is actually going to happen? Or, is this chapter just speaking in a symbolic way, as some Bible teachers claim?
In this edition of the Radio Hour “Shortcast” (it’s just over 10 minutes long) we look at an event from the earthly ministry of Jesus that gives us a definitive answer to this question.
This edition of the program was recorded in segments beginning on Thursday, 20 April 2023.
