What is the Millennial Reign of Christ in Revelation 20? Amil, Premil or Postmil?

Dr. Thomas Schreiner, professor of New Testament Interpretation at Southern Seminary (sbts.edu) respectfully unpacks postmillennialism, premillennialism and amillennialism. He puts forth several strong arguments for premillennialism and then brings in several competing arguments for amillennialism. (Postmillennialism is somewhat discounted before it gets out of the gate here.)


Understanding Revelation 20 and the Millennial Views: Premillennialism, Postmillennialism and Amillennialism

Does 1,000 years mean 1,000 years? How would the devil be bound? What is the first resurrection? What is the second death? Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller offers a quick look at Revelation 20, the millennium, and the amillennial view of the second coming.


The Reason 1000 is NOT to be Interpreted Literally

Pastor Jim McClarty claims that the number 1000 is used in a figurative way only when its being compared with a smaller number. This is exactly what we have in Revelation 20. Gary shows that the 1000 years is being compared to a short time (20:3). But the real comparison is found earlier in Revelation. The key is found in Rev. 20:4. Can you spot what’s being compared?

Pastor Wagner talks about what he refers to as biblical millennialism, otherwise known as amillennialism. The millennium is a figurative amount of time between the first coming of Christ and the second coming of Christ, where the saints live and reign with Christ as the new Testament local church on this earth in the kingdom of God. Millennialism, end times and the reign of Christ.
