Question 615

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? Is there any verse that says when Satan’s angels are put into the Lake of Fire?

Answer: No, not specifically that I know of

This one has to be answered by deduction.

– Scripture states in Matthew 25:41..
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.

From this we can deduce that the Lake of Fire (everlasting fire) was made (prepared) for Satan (devil) and his angels THEREFORE they will at some point in time will be placed in there.

– Scripture says in Revelation 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 for ever and ever.

According to scripture here, Satan is placed into the Lake of Fire at the end of the One Thousand Year Reign of Christ here on earth, BUT, prior to this in verses 1 through 3 of Chapter 20 states…

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. (2) And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, (3) And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

Satan is placed into the bottomless pit for the duration of Christ One Thousand Year Kingdom and then after this according to V7…

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison.

He is released so that as V8 says…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.

The one interesting thing about all this is that there is no mention of Satan’s demons (angels) being put into the Bottomless Pit ONLY Satan being the one put there, THEREFORE I believe that these demons are allowed to roam free (so to speak) awaiting their eternal judgement.

So what is the answer?

I believe the answer in short is this… Satan’s angels have to be awaiting in reserve (during Christ One Thousand Year reign) for their commander, Lucifer to to be released from his imprisionment in the Bottomless Pit and then once he is released he commands them to go out and to influence and convince all those that are 99 years old and younger to take up arms and wage war (known as the Second Battle of Gog and Magog) against the Lord Jesus Christ.

NOTE… You see during Christ One Thousand Year Kingdom, Longevity will be once again reinsituted as it was Prior to Noah’s flood and any person according to Isaiah 65:20 if they have not trusted Jesus Christ as their saviour by the time they reach One Hundred years of age they will be put to death.

Isaiah 65:20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

Once this takes place then as Zechariah 14:12 says that God (Jesus Christ) will execute instant judgement upon them and then at that moment Satan’s angels (demons) WILL RECIEVE their eternal judgement in the Lake of Fire.

Zechariah 14:12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

I hope this helps, and Thank – You for the question.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
