Revelation 20:3

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.

[20:3. The seal indicates God's authority and guarantee that Satan will not be released until a thousand years have passed. During the Millenium (Latin for "one thousand years") Satan will not be able to tempt or deceive the nations. Any temptation to sin during the Millenium must come from within those people who are born after the kingdom begins. It must be assumed that all of Satan's demons or fallen angels are also imprisoned at this time (cf. Is. 24:21-23). Christ will reign on earth without opposition, and His kingdom will be characterized by righteousness, peace, and love (cf. Is. 2:3,4; 11:3-5; 35:1,2; Dan. 7:14; Zech. 14:9). However, after the thousand years Satan will be released for a short while (vv. 7-9).]
