Millennianism, or, Christ's thousand years reign upon earth: considered in a familiar letter to a friend.   There will be two resurrections, one thousand years apart. We are not in the last dispensation of time or “last days” upon this earth. (But, it is believed that we are living during the “end times.”) The thousand-year reign of Christ will finalize events here on earth .   The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.” If these verses are to be understood literally, then at some point in the future, before the eternal state in the new heavens and new earth, Jesus will rule as a literal, visible king on this earth.   A thousand years of peace. There is a biblical truth that promises a world of peace and prosperity for all. It is the scriptural teaching of the 1,year reign of Jesus Christ on earth, often called the Millennium. The world “millennium” is a Latin word that means 1, years. The Bible describes this millennial age as a time of peace and.

  Where in the Bible does it say that Jesus will reign over the world from Jerusalem? Premillennialists would point to Revelation In a debate that Gary North and I had with Dave Hunt and Thomas Ice in , I asked Mr. Hunt where in Revelation 20 does it state that Jesus will reign on the earth for a thousand years. He was silent. This thousand years, or chiliad, is then applied to the period of time mentioned in Rev. Specifically it is used by premillennialist to refer to the millennial reign of Christ upon the earth after the Rapture of the saints. The word millennial does not appear in the scriptures, it is of Latin origin.   The 1,year reign will be the beginning of Jesus’ reign over Israel and the earth (Revelation , 6). The New Covenant (Jeremiah ) The work of the New Covenant—Jesus’ death and resurrection to reconcile hearts to God—has been accomplished. But we have not yet seen the complete fulfillment.   Fifthly, if Christ comes personally out of Heaven, to reign a thousand years, this incongruity will follow, that either the Saints and Angels must come, or not come with Christ; if they must come with Christ, then it is a loss to them, for them to leave the immediate presence of God, and come upon the Earth where wicked men shall be amongst.

Millennialism (from millennium, Latin for "thousand years"), or chiliasm in Greek, is a belief held by some Christian denominations that there will be a Golden Age or Paradise on Earth in which "Christ will reign" for years prior to the final judgment and future eternal state (the "World to Come" of the New Heavens and New Earth). On the Thousand Year Reign (Chiliasm) Ch. 16 from The Truth of Our Faith by Elder Cleopa of Romania. Inquirer: There are those who maintain that between the Second Coming of the Lord and the end of the world Christ will reign upon the earth, governing, Himself, along with His elect for a thousand years. What is the truth of the matter, Father?. After these thousand years, Satan, who was bound up during Christ's earthly reign, will be loosed to deceive the nations, gather an army of the deceived, and take up to battle against the Lord. This battle will end in both the judgment of the wicked and Satan and .   Millennialism versus Millenarianism Millennialism, properly defined, is not nialism is the belief in a future time of peace and holiness on earth. True millennialism is a set of beliefs, within the Roman Catholic faith, which includes: the first Return of Christ (when He will establish His kingdom on earth), and then a very long spiritual reign by Christ through the Church .
