Dark Day Ministries offers this video as an affirmation of the doctrine that Christ’s kingdom (the 1000 years of Revelation 20) is a spiritual kingdom, in existence now, until His second coming. The teacher examines common contentions held many Premillennialists and Postmillennialists against the Amillennial position.

Scripture: The Bottomless Pit
And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
The beast that thou saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
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?
