Revelation 3

1 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority.

2 He laid hold of the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.

3 He cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and sealed over him the great seal of the living God.

4 Then I saw a great white throne, and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them.

5 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done.

6 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them. So Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire.

7 This is the second death, the death of the mind, the death of the heart.

8 And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake
