Millennial Kingdom: Geological/Geographical Implicatioins, Broad Plain of the Earth

Revelation 20:9 And they came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and devoured them.

The context of this verse is at the conclusion of the 1,000 year jail sentence of the devil. Satan has been released from prison. He is deceiving the nations to bring them to battle against Jesus and His followers in Jerusalem.

…the broad plain of the earth…Notice the term is singular, one land mass. Mountains and islands are not mentioned. They have been removed. The Greek word for “broad plain” is platos (πλάτος). Per Strong’s Concordance, the term suggests great extent. The Greek word for “earth” is ge (γῆ). The term is defined as: arable land; the ground, the earth as a standing place.

This is a huge land mass or a super continent.

In the beginning, God created a single land mass on planet earth. Genesis 1:9-10 Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.

Some would argue the land was divided during Noah’s flood. There is one verse that is very clear when the continents emerged.

Genesis 10:25 Two sons were born to Eber; the name of the one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan. Peleg’s life and times are noted after the Tower of Babel. Babel is where God scattered the peoples and changed their language from one to multiple languages. After Babel, God broke up the single land mass as well.

…the earth was divided…The Hebrew word for “earth” is `erets. This is the same term used in Genesis 1:9-10. It means: land or earth. The Hebrew word for “divided” is palag. It means: to be split or divided. Stated plainly, the land/earth was split/divided.

It appears, God will put His creation back in the order as He intended, one land mass, no mountains, no islands.

Revelation 21:5 And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
