"For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but threw them into hell and locked them up in chains in utter darkness, to be kept until the judgment, and if he did not spare the ancient world, but did protect Noah, a herald of righteousness, along with seven others, when God brought a flood on an ungodly world, and if he turned to ashes the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah when he condemned them to destruction, having appointed them to serve as an example to future generations of the ungodly, and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man in anguish over the debauched lifestyle of lawless men, (for while he lived among them day after day, that righteous man was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard) -if so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from their trials, and to reserve the unrighteous for punishment at the day of judgment."

This will result in the death of approximately half of those who will be alive at the beginning of the Tribulation. These fallen angels were swift, terrifying, fierce, and destructive, probably a demonic army (see Rev 9:13-21). There are also four horsemen in Rev 6:1-8. The first four seals represent a different horseman. These horsemen were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill its population with the sword, famine, and disease, and by the wild animals of the earth (6:8).

The Lamb is worshipped by four living creatures, the twenty-four elders, and thousands of angels (Rev 5:6-14), and by the tribulation saints (see Rev 7:9-10). Ten kings under the rule of the beast will rise up against the Lamb, but He will conquer them (see Rev 17:12-14).

In the book of Revelation, Satan is the dragon (see Rev 12:9; 20:2). The dragon has seven heads and ten horns, which represent seven nations and ten rulers (see Rev 17:12). Ten kings will rule under his authority, but when Antichrist rises to preeminence among them he will subdue three of them, leaving only seven (Rev 13:1). In view of his limited time, Satan will concentrate his hatred on the woman, Israel (12:13 - 17). The reason that Satan will oppose the Jews is that Christ, his archenemy, came from them, is one of them, and has prepared a glorious future for them. Satan's chief instruments during the Great Tribulation are the Antichrist and the False Prophet. Satan will ultimately be bound and thrown into a pit for a thousand years. God will release Satan to fulfill His plans after the thousand years (see Rev 12:1 - 3). At the end of the Millennium, God will release Satan from the Abyss, and he will then resume his former work of deceiving the nations into thinking they will be better off submitting to his authority than to Jesus Christ. Satan will gather an innumerable army to oppose Christ, but God will destroy them with fire form heaven. Then He will cast Satan into the lake of fire that He previously prepared for the devil and his angels (see Rev 20:7-10).

The 144,000 are a group of Jewish believers, 12,000 from each of the twelve tribes of Israel, who are sealed by the command of God in order that they might be protected from the divine judgments sent on unbelievers in the Great Tribulation (see Rev 7:1-8). The "great multitude" refers to an innumerable multitude of people in heaven before God's throne. These believers had died during the first half of the Tribulation and had joined the angels in the heavenly throne room that John saw previously.

No one will be able to kill them until God permits this at the very end of their ministry. However, God will revive the witnesses' dead bodies, terrifying all who witness the event (see Rev 11:3-13).

He will wage war against believers and overcome them and will become a worldwide dictator (Dan 7:21, 23). Unbelievers around the world will not only serve Antichrist, but will also worship him, but faithful believers will not (Matt 24:24).

Fifth, Jesus would acknowledge them as His own in heaven.
