Where Is Satan Going?
All of the genuine Christian Holy Days (Passover, the Days of Passover/Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, The Feast of Tabernacles, the Eighth Day - see the Fact Finder question below for Sermons and detailed studies for each of Christ's True Holy Days) have direct prophetic significance to Jesus Christ. The Feast of Trumpets (see The Feast Of Trumpets Prophecy) is a prophecy of the return of the Messiah to establish the Kingdom of God on earth (see The Gospel of The Kingdom of God).
"19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war [see The Coming World Dictator]. 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of kings, and LORD of lords.
"Cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more"
The Day of Atonement is specifically observed ten days after the Feast of Trumpets, however it is directly connected to the prophetic events of the days of Passover and the Feast of Trumpets - the delivery of Christ's atoning Sacrifice at Passover, and the putting away of the source of sin, Satan, on the day of Christ's return. The two goats of the Atonement (as it was originally observed before Christ's Sacrifice was completed), one sacrificed as an atonement for sin (i.e. Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God), the other convicted as the source of sin (i.e. Satan) and sent away into the wilderness, portrayed the Lamb of God and Satan (see The Saviour And The Scapegoat).
"16:7 And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the LORD [see 'The God Of The Old Testament' and 'Before Abraham Was, I AM'] at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
The sending of the "scapegoat" out into the wilderness as done by the Old Testament high priest after he returned from inside The Most Holy Place of the Tabernacle is a ceremonial preview of Jesus Christ sending Satan into the abyss which will be done after His Return from the Throne Room of God The Father.
"16:15 Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the veil [see Why Was It Torn?], and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat [see Christ's Mercy Seat]" (Leviticus 16:15 KJV)
Many people incorrectly assume Jesus Christ to be the "scapegoat" because of the modern-day definition of that English word ("someone punished for the wrongs of others"), but "scapegoat" literally means escape goat - the one sent away. It's not surprising that so many people have the understanding reversed because even their "view" of Christ is bedazzled by a culturally-brainwashed false view of Christ. Jesus Christ was an ordinary-looking man of that time ("53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not." Isaiah 53:2-3 KJV), whereas Satan is the "pretty-boy" with a sun-worshipping pagan halo around his head. Most of the "Jesus" pictures that millions of people revere are far closer to what Satan looks like (including the "Jesus" in the illustration that actually is far closer to depicting Satan, the arrogance-deflated "scapegoat," after being sent out into the wilderness) than what Jesus of Nazareth looked like then, or now.
"11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV)
As stated in the verses quoted above, Satan will first be in the spiritual wilderness "till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season." He will then be allowed out as a final test of humanity - after which Satan will be imprisoned forever.
"20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are [see Dead Souls and The Lake Of Fire Into An Ocean Of Fire - When?, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever." (Revelation 20:7-10 KJV)

This Day In History, October 4
1535 The first complete English-language Bible was produced by printer Miles Coverdale.
1582: The Gregorian calendar was ordered into use by Pope Gregory XIII. That year, to correct the season error accumulated by the Julian calendar (named after Julius Caesar), October 4 was to be followed by October 15. The order of the days of the week were not affected, but October 5 to 14 "did not happen" that year. Roman Catholic countries accepted the change, but Britain and its North American colonies did not accept the new Gregorian calendar for another 2 centuries, and Russia did not accept it until 1917. Today, the Gregorian calendar is used over most of the world. See Pope Gregory's Calendar
1830: Belgium became an independent nation apart from the Netherlands.
1853: After Russia refused to withdraw from the Danubian principalities, Turkey (i.e. the Ottoman Empire; listen to our Sermon The Ottoman Empire) declared war, thus starting the Crimean War; Russia against Turkey, England, France, and Sardinia. The war lasted 3 years.
1874: To stop further genocide of his defeated people on the vast plains that they had freely lived on for many centuries before the Europeans came, Kiowa war chief Santanta, known as "the Orator of the Plains," surrendered in Darlington, Texas. Contrary to the political surrender agreement, Santanta was then sent to a penitentiary at Huntsville where he was imprisoned with common criminals and forced to work in road crews - thereafter spending his days, in chains, looking out to the open prairie that once was his homeland; he committed suicide in the prison 4 years later.
