What does Revelation 12:10 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

Heaven cheers the expulsion of Satan and his angels from heaven. A loud voice from heaven proclaims the fact that the accuser of the believers has been cast down. The voice acknowledges that the accuser points out believers' faults and sins around the clock. Now he is cast out of heaven and God and Christ are exalted.

Satan's expulsion brings Christ's millennial kingdom even closer. God will deliver His people from the Devil's tyranny. God's power and Christ's authority are about to be displayed. The end of the Devil's kingdom is certain! Although Jesus judged and defeated the Devil when Jesus was on earth (John 16:11), Jesus did not execute the sentence He pronounced on Satan. Someday, however, He will chain the Devil and cast him into the bottomless pit for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1–3), and finally He will consign the Devil and his followers to eternal punishment in the lake of fire (Revelation 20:7–10).
