fire from heaven

After Armageddon and the imprisonment of Satan in the abyss for 1,000 years, the Millennial Kingdom follows; but, the Bible does not indicate who comprises this earthly kingdom. While there is no mention of evil fallen angels, it seems unlikely that they would be mortal human beings.

  • The reaping by angels involving the bowl judgments would negate human habitation on a worldwide scale.
  • The battle of Armageddon occurs when there are no Believers present on earth; thus, victory would likely be absolute and decisive over any remaining human beings (Rev 19:21).
  • The Bible mentions that glorified saints will judge angels (1 Cor 6:2-3), and evil fallen angels are confined to earth (Rev 12:7-10).
  • When Satan is released at the end of the millennium, heavenly fire consumes the enemy (Rev 20:7-9). The battle is not fought by using any familiar weapons or with unfallen angels; instead, supernatural fire is used (Rev 20:10).
