The delay in the full revelation of the Messiah has given a boost not only to the kingdom of God, but also to the devil's side of this war. Many more people had an opportunity to prepare to enter into the millennial and the eternal kingdom of God. Many others chose to align with Satan.
When the tally is done, and the toll is taken, we might discover that Satan had the upper hand in the beginning, two years ago, but that God erased the devil's gains. When the death toll is counted, it will include not only the known dead, but also the walking dead, the ones whose bodies are now inhabited by demons from hell.
