Topic: The Millennium
A millennium is a period of one thousand years (Merriam Webster Dictionary). A period of one thousand years of the reign of Jesus during which the devil will be kept completely out of the scene (Revelation 20:1-3). Is studying about the millennium really important? When, where and who will be part of the millennial reign? This Bible study will proffer answers to these questions and other possible questions that may arise.
A. Is studying about the millennium really important? Yes, because:
It prepares us for the future Revelation 1:1
It will work patience in us 1 John 3:1-3
A blessing is attached Revelation 1:3
B. When will the millennium begin?
Obviously, during the 1000year period when the devil is taken out of the scene (Rev 20:1-3), but when will this happen? Different ideas have risen over the centuries, the most important being ‘amiillennial’ , ‘premillennial’ and ‘post millennial’ .
C. Where will the millennial reign happen?
There are many opinions on the location of the place where this 1000 years will be spent, the Bible however tells us that it will happen here on earth.
D. Who will be part of the millennial reign?
God, through Jesus, sent to give us the knowledge of the future, the understanding of which should empower us to endure trials, temptations, persecutions and live in absolute commitment to God knowing that our trust will be rewarded (2 Timothy 2:3-6). Although we may be despised and persecuted by the world today, we will reign with Jesus if we endure to the end (Matthew 10:22; 24:13).
