As a friend used to say, "Stick this in your pipe and smoke it": (Rev 20:1) And I saw an angel come down from Heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand.
(Rev 20:2) And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.
(Rev 20:3) And he cast him into the abyss and shut him up and set a seal on him, that he should deceive the nations no more until the thousand years should be fulfilled. And after that he must be loosed a little time.
(Rev 20:4) And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast nor his image, nor had received his mark on their foreheads, nor in their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
(Rev 20:5) But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
(Rev 20:6) Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. The second death has no authority over these, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with Him a thousand years.
(Rev 20:7) And when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be loosed out of his prison.
(Rev 20:8) And he will 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 them is as the sand of the sea.
Explain that for a mid trib! Explain that for a pre trib! Gotcha!

Then after this
I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven
