(Rapture to Millennium)
1. When the church is raptured Satan will know his time is short. He won’t have God’s people, the Church (Bride of Christ) to attack, so He will turn his attention to attacking God’s people, the Jews. The Jews and Gentiles who become believers will be attacked especially hard.
Rev 12:7-9 And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down-that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
2. Thus Satan will do all he can to destroy Israel.
Rev 12:13 -17 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach. Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.
3. Satan will rule the world, which he has been wanting to do since he was cast out of heaven. He will rule through the Antichrist (see B. 2. Below)
