The Millennium, aka "1,000 year reign"

Updated: Jun 29, 2023

The Millennium

Voddie Baucham unpacks Revelation 20:1-3; some of the most hotly debated scripture in the Bible. He does not present difficult theology, charts, or graphs. He simply brings the simplicity of Christ.

He also describes some of the varying views people hold pertaining to this scripture that will require your attention and notepad if you are not familiar with the different views.


Personally, I do not believe it will be like the 'Left Behind' movies or any other Hollywood production where people just keep getting chances.

I believe when it's the Day of the Lord, just like the Word says, every knee will bow and confess Christ is Lord! However, on that day, He will say to many, "Depart, I never knew you." That is the day all will be decided.

For even demons and satan know Christ is Lord! It is not enough to proclaim Him with your lips and think you have a free ticket into heaven.

That's why it's so important to receive salvation TODAY. To rest in Christ TODAY. Not when you see signs and wonders. Not when you "get your life cleaned up". TODAY GET RIGHT and get covered by the blood. If you wait until He rolls back the firmament, it will be too late. Not only that, none of us know when death will take us. Don't come to Christ to avoid "going to hell". Come to Christ because of what He did for us! How much more can God love us than to die in a fleshly body for us!?

 

The Millennium! The 1,000 years of peace that Christians like

to argue about!

 

The Second Coming


There were two Old Testament examples of judgment that Christ gave to His disciples about the day of His return. They can be found in Luke 17; the days of Noah and the days of Lot. A sobering reminder to keep the oil in your lamp full (Parable of the Ten Virgins) and to take every thought captive! We do not know the hour. "Remember Lot's wife." On the Day of the Lord, there can be nothing that would make us look back.


Luke 17 20 Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he answered them, “The kingdom of God is not coming in ways that can be observed, 21 nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.” 22 And he said to the disciples, “The days are coming when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. 23 And they will say to you, ‘Look, there!’ or ‘Look, here!’ Do not go out or follow them. 24 For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day.

25 But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 26 Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.


28 Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot—they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building, 29 but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all— 30 so will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

31 On that day, let the one who is on the housetop, with his goods in the house, not come down to take them away, and likewise let the one who is in the field not turn back.

32 Remember Lot's wife. 33 Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will keep it. 34 I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed. One will be taken and the other left. 35 There will be two women grinding together. One will be taken and the other left.” 37 And they said to him, “Where, Lord?” He said to them, “Where the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.”


Don't lose heart. Patiently endure. Stay in the Word. Share the Gospel. Looking forward to that Blessed Hope.


I have also updated in the comment section with an extremely interesting perspective; especially if the timelines do no pan out the way people are believing. Clinging to a timeline may cause some to fall away from the faith in the future.

One of the most interesting topics I've ever come across! 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐥𝐚𝐰𝐬: 𝐇𝐚𝐬 𝟏,𝟎𝟎𝟎 𝐲𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐜𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐫? The presenter brings some pretty neat evidence forward on the matter. Enough for me to not trust the calendar and never be dogmatic in "eschatological timelines".

Even when things seem to "match up".

Time and the calendar...the greatest conspiracy few will look at. I think it would shatter some perceived realities and what we think we know - but in a good way. I came to the conclusion that Jesus is enough; His finished work on the cross. This topic also brings this scripture in 1 Corinthians Chapter 1 to life for me. 22 For the Jews requ…
