Satan’s Demise?

“But woe to the earth and the sea,
    because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury,
    because he knows that his time is short.” Revelation 12:12

Doesn’t our time feel like this? Cities are burning with riots; strange explosions are seen around the world. Media outlets are in full blown propaganda mode. But even this time may not be Satan’s full imprisonment. He is still prowling, but truth is restraining him.

“And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain.  He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.  He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.” Revelation 20:1-3

It is clear now that Satan’s imprisonment is not a step function, but a more gradual process.
