Amillenianism literally means no millennium. This name stems from the disbelief that there will be a literal thousand year period called the golden grow older, either before or after the return of Christ (Gregg 459). This view contrary to the others, can be not a new concept, however the name can be new. Actually R. N. Strimple statements this particular perspective has been around as long as Christianity (83).
Amillennialists generally assume that almost all millennium prophecies are satisfied in between the first plus the second coming of Christ (Gregg 459). The time after the initially coming and prior to the second coming is recognized as the fantastic age. The Golden Age group specifically refers to the Messiah ruling on earth (27). Simply, amillennialists would say Christ's thousand year reign takes place in heaven with the spirits of departed believers (Rev 20).
As opposed to other views that believe that the second arriving will be in two phases, amillennialists think it will result from one level; within the time passed between the 1st and second coming (459). They merge the two resurrections spoken in Revelation 20: 1-6 into one stage. In this one level, a general revival will occur in which all believers and unbelievers will probably be gathered. They will understand that Satan will be bound during the in-between time and with the second introduction he will become released for the short time to cause havoc (458). Christ will come back after the beautiful millennium rule and all believers and transformed believers will be taken up for the clouds to be in his campany Him.
In my examination of amillennialism, I have chose to disagree with most every thing they believe...
... es to get the 1, 000 year stage. Whether that begin after the resurrection or after the second coming. Instead the postmillennialists can, in my thoughts, take the idiot proof watch. They believe that whenever Christ comes back the 1000 years is finished, then take away a thousand years and you'll find when the time started. Well duh!
