Revelation 19:17-21 A war arises between the rider on the white horse and his army against the financial system and the NWO, but these will be destroyed just as the false prophet and those who worship this financial system.

Revelation 20
Revelation 20:1-2 Satan for 1000 years locked in the abyss.
Revelation 20:4 The 144,000 chosen ones will rule as kings with Christ, a thousand years.

After the great tribulation the sign of the Son will appear followed by – after a loud trumpet – the inclusion of the 144,000 chosen ones.
Then ‘all tribes’ will mourn:

WEB (Matthew 24:29-31) 29 But immediately after the oppression of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken; 30 and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky. Then all the tribes of the earth will mourn , and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. 31 He will send out his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together his chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

In 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 is written that during a sound of a trumpet, the Lord will come, and that the deceased together with the living saints will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. Furthermore, in 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 is written that the dead saints are raised during the last trumpet, the 7th trumpet. The ‘dead prophets’ will be previously raised as the saints.
Only afterwards,  all other living faithful Christians will be included. The latter may not sit on thrones but get a task as servants in the temple.

WEB (Revelation 20:4-6) 4 I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as didn’t worship the beast nor his image, and didn’t receive the mark on their forehead and on their hand. They lived, and reigned with Christ for the thousand years. 5 The rest of the dead didn’t live until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over these, the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with him one thousand years.

Revelation 20:5 is a partially interleaved sense and is therefore sometimes in brackets: (The rest of the dead didn’t live until the thousand years were finished.)
The part of Rev. 20:5: “This is the first resurrection” refers to both verse 4 and 6.
The first resurrection is only for the firstfruits. The second resurrection is meant for all deceased people who will receive a resurrection after 1000 years and are given a chance. In verse 6 is written that death has no power over the first resurrection. Logical Reasoning, death will have power over the second resurrection.

Revelation 20:7-10 Satan will be released after the 1000 years for a short period, he will deceive many and will collect them to war. Afterwards Satan will be destroyed.
Revelation 20:11-15 The dead are judged according to the book of life. Whose name is not written in the book of life, will be destroyed.

Revelation 21
Revelation 21:1 the old heaven and earth have passed away.
Revelation 21:2 The New Jerusalem descends to earth, God is with his people.
With the descent of the New Jerusalem to earth, the prophecy will be fulfilled, that the meek shall inherit the earth:

WEB (Matthew 5:5) 5 Blessed are the gentle, For they shall inherit the earth.

Revelation 21:9   One of the angels (of the bowls) shows the bride of the Lamb, the 144.000.
Revelation 21:22 The New Jerusalem has no temple because God Almighty as the Lamb are its temple.

Revelation 22
WEB (Revelation 22:1-2) 1 He showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb, 2 in the middle of its street. On this side of the river and on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruits, yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
