10.4 The coming of the Lord with power and great glory

After the marriage in heaven, the Son of God will return to the earth with the firstlings (Revelation 19: 11-16). The Lord foretold this event by referring to His coming "with power and great glory" (Matthew 24: 29-30). Jesus Christ will then reveal His divine power on earth for all to see (Revelation 1: 7). He, the King of kings and Lord of lords, will take away all power from Satan and his followers, and thus put an end to the time of the great tribulation. Satan's followers will be judged (Revelation 19: 20). Satan himself will be bound for "a thousand years", so that "he should deceive the nations no more" (Revelation 20: 1-3). After Satan has been bound and cast into the bottomless pit, the resurrection of the martyrs from the great tribulation will take place (Revelation 20: 4).
