Read the Bible through with Yellow Creek Baptist Church:

The Thousand Years
Rev 20:1
  And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. 
Rev 20:2  He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 
Rev 20:3  He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time. 
Rev 20:4  I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 
Rev 20:5  (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. 
Rev 20:6  Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years. 
The Defeat of Satan
Rev 20:7  When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison 
Rev 20:8  and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. 
Rev 20:9  They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 
Rev 20:10  And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. 
Judgment Before the Great White Throne
Rev 20:11  Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 
Rev 20:12  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 according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 
Rev 20:13  The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 
Rev 20:14  Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 
Rev 20:15  Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire. 

The New Heaven and the New Earth
Rev 21:1
  Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 
Rev 21:2  I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 
Rev 21:3  And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 
Rev 21:4  ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” 
Rev 21:5  He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” 
Rev 21:6  He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. 
Rev 21:7  Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. 
Rev 21:8  But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” 
The New Jerusalem
Rev 21:9  One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 
Rev 21:10  And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. 
Rev 21:11  It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. 
Rev 21:12  It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. 
Rev 21:13  There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west. 
Rev 21:14  The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 
Rev 21:15  The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its walls. 
Rev 21:16  The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long. 
Rev 21:17  The angel measured the wall using human measurement, and it was 144 cubits thick. 
Rev 21:18  The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. 
Rev 21:19  The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 
Rev 21:20  the fifth onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. 
Rev 21:21  The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass. 
Rev 21:22  I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 
Rev 21:23  The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. 
Rev 21:24  The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. 
Rev 21:25  On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. 
Rev 21:26  The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. 
Rev 21:27  Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.  (NIV)
