At the end of the great tribulation, Jews will recognize Jesus Christ as the blessed Messiah and call him to save them. Jesus Christ will come with his saints and reign in the promised land for a thousand years. It is the third "second coming." It is called the Millennium. Satan will be bound and cast in the bottomless pit. So, he cannot deceive for this thousand years.
Jesus Christ will bring his saints after the great tribulation, to reign in the Promised Land for a thousand years, which is the Millennium. Usually our teachers in the church say that Jesus Christ, with his saints, will rule the entire world. But, that is not true. Symbolically, he will sit at the throne of David to rule. David's rule was just in Israel. At the millennium reign, there will be perfect peace in the land. "Isaiah 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4 And he shall judge among the nations (within the promised land), and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD." There are many things to write about the millennium reign, etc. In that period of time, Satan and the evil spirits will be locked in the bottomless pit, and will be released after the thousand years are over. In that time, there will be no army, no war, and people will live in peace. "Revelation 20:1 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.... 7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 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. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them." After a thousand years Satan will be loosed from prison, and he will go around the world and bring a big army against the Lord. So, we can see that Jesus Christ was not ruling the entire world. Fire from heaven will destroy that army. His people will flourish with peace in the Millennium. People do not have to fight against the army, but the fire from heaven will take care of them.
