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.
|The Millennia Reign of Christ|
The Millennia reign of Christ on earth is a much-anticipated event by believers in Christ since the Church Age. While this truth is documented without any shadow of a doubt in Revelation chapter 20, yet many Christians have been persuaded otherwise to believe that there will be no such event in the future. They take a fairy tale approach when interpreting the Holy Bible concerning prophecies that are supposed to be taken literally. If we are to take some figurative approach towards interpreting prophecies, we could come out with as many interpretations as we want and none would be wiser as to who would be correct. We might just as well read some interesting literature like “Animal Farm” which would be a lot more interesting and relevant to our political and social setting so that we would be wiser in the ways of the world.
Nonetheless, the Millennia reign of Christ is certain and it is coming right on schedule according to promises in the Holy Bible. Here is a short discussion on this topic based on a sermon preached. The reader is recommended to check the text of the Scriptures concerned and be brutally honest in taking the Scriptures at face value. Let God be true and every man a liar. Let no man’s prejudiced views stir us away from the veracity of the Scriptures where we are supposed to apply faith to take God seriously. It is the veracity of the Scriptures that is in question. If we cannot take what the Scriptures reveal at face value, we might just as well stop believing the gospel. May the Lord bless the study of His holy words!
