Rev 20;1-3 " Then I saw an angel coming down out of heaven having in his hand the key to the abyss and a great chain.
He seized the ancient serpent[ who is adversary and the accuser] and bound him for 1000 years and cast him into the abyss, and fastened it and sealed it over him, that he might not deceive the nations any more until the 1000 years should be ended; after these he must be loosed for a SHORT time."
7-10 " And as soon as the 1000 years shall be ended the accuser shall be loosed out of his prison and will go forth to deceive the nations that are in the four corners of the earth, the Gog and Magog, to gather them to the battle, the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
And they came up over the breadth of the land and surrounded the camp of the saints, and the beloved city.
And there came down fire out of heaven and devoured them;
and the adversary that had been deceiving them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where were both the wild-beast and the false-prophet; and they shall be examined and scrutinised either by words of torture for ages and ages."
Just one of those cogitation things-
Those who die during the tribulation and before, who had their own understanding of Christ and the plan, will be those who will be returning to set up the kingdom, but still under the incorrect understanding of Christ- martyrs/dedicated believers who have died for the cause. These people were not correct and will need to see the real Jesus at their appointed time, just like the ecclesia came to their revelation.
Pretty big scale of events and conversion.
Also interesting that during the 1000 years there will be a camp- a fortress, marshalling of an army;
outside a city- an enclosed walled town.
This while nations are still to the four corners of the earth.
vs 11 " And I saw a Great White Throne, and Him sitting there-on from Whose face earth and heaven flew away and no place was found for them."
Then the real ministry of the ecclesia amongst this process. Awesome.
The 1000 years, being a day, will still be a major time-frame of events.
