Revelation 20:8

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.

Satan will go out to deceive as he has always done.  However, this will be different than the deception that occurred prior to the millennium.  By the end of the 1000 years, Numbers 24 and Isaiah 11:9 will have been fulfilled.

20 And Yehovah said, I have pardoned according to thy word: 21 But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of Yehovah.

Isaiah 11:9

9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Yehovah, as the waters cover the sea.

During the millennial reign of Messiah, the earth will be filled with the glory and knowledge of Yehovah.  People will know and Jeremiah 31:29-30 will be true.

29 In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children’s teeth are set on edge.  30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.

Today, people do not die for their own sin, we all die because of Adam.  In the millennium, that will no longer be true.  All will die for their own sin.  All will have made their own decision.  As hard a it may be to believe, there will be those that will choose to have a life with Satan.  But it will not be, because they were deceived or that they did not know, it will because they chose death themselves.  They ultimately believed the lie.

Next Defeat of Gog and Magog
