Daniel 7:10 the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

Daniel 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.

Matthew 19:28 ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

1 Cor 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: ...and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

This is a doctrine of judgment, given many times in the bible. In revelation it tells us how long this judgment will be. 1000 years

Francis and others: As it was in Jesus' time, that His disciples had trouble understanding His parables, we may also have trouble understanding Revelation - or other books, for that matter.

Revelation is always a hard book to understand, and there is the chance (what chance I don't know) that some of this is metaphorical - the orientals used metaphors more than we do, as far as I know.

So I will read and work to understand, but without the certainty that I've actually understood it!

There is not one sinble verse in the entire bible that says Jesus will reign on EARTH for 1000 years.

The order of things as given in revealtion is:
1: Revelation 19: The coming of Jesus and the total destruction of all the wicked both great and small( verse 18)
2: Taking of the saints to heaven where they sit as judges for 1000 years revelation 20:4
2.5: The binding fo satan for 1000 years
3: The resurrection of all the wicked dead, who are then led by satan to take the holy city which is coming down with the saints

There is no text that says Jesus will reign for 1000 years.

Jesus died and resurrected, is now at the right hand of the Father. And He's coming back to rule mankind for a thousand years? He told Pilate, "My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews, but now My kingdom is not from here." John 18:36

Scripture clearly states that His second coming would be Judgement Day "and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." 2 Peter 3:10 - so what earthly kingdom is left after this? When He returns, time will cease and He will establish an eternal state of life for His people and eternal death for the reprobates.

One thing I beleive about the Millenium that others are overlooking. Before Christ's death on the cross-from Adam til Christ,the righteous-the O.T Jews & Devout Gentile Monotheist died in their sin-nature but went to paradise next to hell. Since Christ's death heaven has opened up & innocence is given to those who die in Christ & it has been this way since the death of Christ 2000 years ago . However in the Millenium the part of the Lord's Prayer will be anwsered-"thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven". For 2000 years God's will has been done in those in heaven because they are "innocent". But in the Millenium this opprotunity of "innocence on earth" will open to those who see it .
---Ronnie_Safreed on 4/16/12

This is my opinion. There will be children born during the millennium. Isaiah 11:6-8 They would have a sin nature (Romans 3:23) and a choice to believe or not believe in Jesus. Some will come to believe in Jesus as their Saviour, but not necessarily all. It happen that way, when Jesus was living on earth the first time. People saw his miracles and heard his wisdom, and still rejected him. Satan is let loose for a short while, maybe to show them what evil is. Have them choose between Jesus and evil.

John 6:44 "No man can come to Me, except (unless) the Father which sent Me draw him; and I will raise him in the last day." This tells me that those who died before His coming had no opportunity to be drawn to Him or to believe, acknowledge or confess Him as Saviour. 45 "It is written in the prophets, and they shall be 'all' taught of God. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father comes to me." Cont. Pt.2
---joseph on 7/8/07

Pt.2 Obviously there were those, before He came, that were never given opportunity to even hear, much less learn of the Father. Ps.68:18 "You have ascended on high, you have led captivity (those exiled & bound in & by the darkness-obscurity & ignorance of their sin) captive (They were taken as prisoners of His righteousness), You have received gifts for men: yes, even the rebellious also, that the Lord might dwell among them." Cont. Pt.3.
---joseph on 7/8/07

Pt.3 1Jh.2:2 "And He is the propitiation (reparation) for our sins; and not for ours (believers) only, but also the sins of the whole world (current earth age)." The blood of Jesus covers all who have not heard the good news, & rejected it, back as far as the creation of man. Therefore there will be nonbelievers, rather than unbelievers, raised in the first resurrection. Including of course the aborted children, children who died at child birth or before they understood sin & death,.Cont. Pt.4
---joseph on 7/8/07 well as the mentally challenged. Before the start on the millennia, 'all' the dead in Christ shall rise & put on an incorruptible body. And those of us who remain & have not fell at the feet of the Antichrist, as well as those who died in 'The Faith' will be changed into our eternal immortal bodies, the rest will be still subject to death, although it will not have any power (delegated authority or right) over them. (1Thes,4:16,17>1Cor.15:52>Rev.20:6) Cont. Pt.5
---joseph on 7/8/07

Pt.5 There will be no births during the millennia. Isa.65:20 "There shall be no more thence an infant of days; for a child shall die (spiritually, in a figurative sense) an hundred years old; but the 'sinner' (lead astray) being an hundred years old shall be accursed." Zeph.3:5,11 "The just LORD is in the mist thereof; He will not do iniquity; every morning He bring His judgement to light, he fails not; but the unjust knows no shame. In that day you shall not be ashamed for all... Cont
---joseph on 7/8/07

Pt.6 Cont..your doings wherein you have transgressed against Me; for then I will take away out of the midst of you, them that rejoice in your pride, and you shall no more be haughty." The nonbeliever will be there, however, "The remnant of Israel (those who will rule as God) shall not do iniquity nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth; for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid."
---joseph on 7/8/07

Psalm 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8 warn us that we are not to take 1000 years literally. God doesn't measure 1000 years like we do. And note that Peter mentions this when talking about the return of Christ.

So suddenly in Revelation--the most symbolic, figurative, pictoral book in the Bible--these suddenly become 1000 fallen earthly years?

I think not.

Just as there is no pre-trib rapture, there is no literal millennium.
---Jack on 7/7/07

We are now living in the "thousand years" between Christ's first coming and His second coming when Satan is bound--LIMITED in power, not rendered inoperative.

Remember that there are two mentions of 1000 years (Psalm 90 and 2 Peter 3) where it is plain that God does NOT mean "1000 years" the same way we do.
---Jack on 6/19/06

Fist of all,during the millenium, the saints
will be doing the judging from HEAVEN.
By then everyone will have made up their mind, for Jesus or vs Jesus. It will be too late to
change. P.
---Pierr5358 on 6/1/06

If you read Rev. 20 carefully, you will see that John saw the SOULS of those who had been slain for Christ reigning with Him for 1000 years.

He did NOT see "souls reunited with bodies," but souls only. In other words, before the Resurrection.

Therefore, this reign has to be taking place in heaven and NOT on earth.

At least, that's what the Bible says.

Of courae, the traditions and precepts of men regarding dispensationalism taught as divine doctrines say otherwise.

We the saints of God are going to reign with Christ for 1,000 years. All that time Satan will be bound up. At the end of the 1,000 years Satan will be released for a little while -- I think that is when those who will rebel will do it, not before.
---Helen_5378 on 5/31/06

During the Millennial reign of Christ, there will be those that are not believers, but the difference will be that Satan is bound for those 1000 years, he won't be there to tempt. Those that openly sin will be judged on the spot. At the end of the 1000 years, Satan is released for a season and then will the true nature of the unbelievers of the time be seen and judged with Satan.
