SECTION TWENTY-FIVE – A COMING KINGDOM
Revelation 20:1-6 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that ihe should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
Postmillennial is the view that Jesus comes at the end of the 1000 years.
Premillennial is the view that Jesus will come before the 1000 years.
Note: If someone believes in a premillennial view, they believe that Jesus will come back after the worst time of human history. If someone believes in a postmillennial view, they believe that Jesus will come back after a time of peace and prosperity.
Note: We can add in there an amillennialist which is someone who doesn’t believe that there will be the Millennial Kingdom at all.
