It says however in the book of Revelation chapter 20 this, 1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while”

With a perfect earth however mankind still maintains the evil seed in his being and desires to do wrong so our God will make sure that they cannot. We read of His control in the 12th chapter of Revelation, 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron.”
