Timeless truths behind the debates over Christ s return.
When and how will the millennium of Christ s reign occur? Will Christ return to reign on earth before or after the church has been raptured? Will there be a literal thousand-year reign on earth? These questions vex many Christians, yet many miss the more important question: What does the coming millennium mean for life in our present age? This study will examine this question.
Table of Contents
SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 11:3 4; Jeremiah 3:17 18; Zechariah 14:6 9; Acts 2:33 36; 1 Corinthians 15:25 27, Revelation 20
Sample question:The Scriptures
How can we find a balance between not caring at all about the coming millennium and being ready to argue the merits of the position we favor?
What is the most important aspect of the millennium? See Acts 2:33 36 and 1 Corinthians 15:25 27.
Sample application questions:
... the Spirit is not calling us to debate ad nauseam when and how John s vision of the thousand-year golden age is fulfilled, but to focus on how we are to live now in light of Jesus future return. What does that mean to you?
How does that affect your attitude toward the future?
