Question

 

Dear Gramps,

How will Satan be bound during the Millennium? Is it the righteousness of the people that will bind him; and  if so, will they become wicked at the end of the 1000 years, which will cause him to be released?

Carol

 

Answer

 

Dear Carol,

Satan and his hosts will be cast into outer darkness during the millennium. From there he will have no influence on anyone but those who are with him. Near the end of the thousand years he will be loosed “for a little season” in order to tempt those who were born during the millennium when then was no temptation from the adversary. Here is a definitive picture that relates to the subject–

Thus saith the Lord concerning all those who know my power, and have been made partakers thereof, and suffered themselves through the power of the devil to be overcome, and to deny the truth and defy my power–

 

They are they who are the sons of perdition, of whom I say that it had been better for them never to have been born;

 

For they are vessels of wrath, doomed to suffer the wrath of God, with the devil and his angels in eternity;

 

Concerning whom I have said there is no forgiveness in this world nor in the world to come–

 

Having denied the Holy Spirit after having received it, and having denied the Only Begotten Son of the Father, having crucified him unto themselves and put him to an open shame.

 

These are they who shall go away into the lake of fire and brimstone, with the devil and his angels–

 

And the only ones on whom the second death shall have any power;

 

Yea, verily, the only ones who shall not be redeemed in the due time of the Lord, after the sufferings of his wrath.

 

For all the rest shall be brought forth by the resurrection of the dead, through the triumph and the glory of the Lamb, who was slain, who was in the bosom of the Father before the worlds were made.

 

And this is the gospel, the glad tidings, which the voice out of the heavens bore record unto us–

 

That he came into the world, even Jesus, to be crucified for the world, and to bear the sins of the world, and to sanctify the world, and to cleanse it from all unrighteousness;

 

That through him all might be saved whom the Father had put into his power and made by him;

 

Who glorifies the Father, and saves all the works of his hands, except those sons of perdition who deny the Son after the Father has revealed him.

 

And this is the gospel, the glad tidings, which the voice out of the heavens bore record unto us–

 

That he came into the world, even Jesus, to be crucified for the world, and to bear the sins of the world, and to sanctify the world, and to cleanse it from all unrighteousness;

 

That through him all might be saved whom the Father had put into his power and made by him;

 

Who glorifies the Father, and saves all the works of his hands, except those sons of perdition who deny the Son after the Father has revealed him.

 

Wherefore, he saves all except them–they shall go away into everlasting punishment, which is endless punishment, which is eternal punishment, to reign with the devil and his angels in eternity, where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched, which is their torment–

 

And the end thereof, neither the place thereof, nor their torment, no man knows;

 

Neither was it revealed, neither is, neither will be revealed unto man, except to them who are made partakers thereof.  (D&C  76:31-46)
