“When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, and will come out to deceive the nations which are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war; the number of them is like the sand of the seashore” (Revelation 20:7-8).

We have been consistently reading about people who are in rebellion against the Lord versus the saints.  It is no different here.  Gog and Magog are the people gathered against Zion, the people of God.  Of course, the devil relishes in identity politics.  There are only two kinds of people, those who will come into the salvation of Christ and those who will not.  But the devil entices those in rebellion to accuse and curse those who follow Christ.

Are you aware of what is happening around you?  Do you fall for the oft-repeated things that are believed to be true because they are said enough times?  The word of the Lord is consistent and has been telling us all along that the ways of the Lord are true.  Those in rebellion break God’s law.  You are called to obey Him.  Do you seek to fulfill the law, or desire ways around the law?

Lord Jesus, is it really all about faithfulness to You?  In this age, I will sin.  I will break the law, but that is not the measure of faithfulness.  Seeking to follow You and do what is right is at the heart of faithfulness.  Lead me out of the horde of Gog and Magog so that even if I am in the middle of them physically, I stand with You in every other way.  Help me, Lord. to follow the path of faithfulness.  Amen.
