"City of God" XX.8

Chapter 8:
We should understand that the binding and loosing of Satan spoken of in Revelation has multiple layers of meaning. For example, right now he is both bound and loosed--bound in the sense that he cannot touch our salvation, but loose in the sense that we are still subject to temptation by him. But there will also come day when (for a short time) he has more free rein in his persecution of the church and driving the city of man into greater rebellion, followed by a day when he will be totally bound. So there is much subtlety in this kind of Scripture.
