… an angel…seized the dragon, that ancient serpent…
and bound him for a thousand years…
After that, he must be set free for a short time.

Revelation 20:1-3

Here we see the inscrutable wisdom of God. The natural mind asks, ‘Why does God not deal with Satan once and for all? Why allow him to introduce his deadly poison yet again?’ God answers: ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.’ (Is.55:9)
God is His own Interpreter,
And he will make it plain.
W. Cowper
