  9. 9. The Basis for Premillenial Pretribulation view  Rev 20 = Literal 1000 years reign on earth.
  10. 10. Millennium (Rev 20)  Angel down from Heaven-v1  1000 years – 6x  Rev 20:2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7  Satan bound – deceive not – v3  Saints reigned-v.4, 6  First resurrection – v.5,6  Satan released & deceived – v7  The Great White Throne Judgment Works – v11-13
  11. 11. The Basis for Premillenial Pretribulation view  Rev 20 = Literal 1000 years reign on earth.  Church distinct from Israel  Church does NOT replace Israel  1 Cor 10:32  Rom 11:1-2, 11, 25-32  Promises & curses to Israel applies to Israel & NOT the church
  12. 12. Premillenial Pretribulation view Implications  Great Tribulation – Matt 24, Daniel 70 week.  Rev 6-19 is Great Tribulation for Israel and the world.  Church will already be raptured.  Unfulfilled Promises to Israel will be fulfilled in the Millennium on earth

  19. 19. Post Millennial View  Church will usher in a long period of peace, through the preaching of the gospel.  Lord Jesus will reign spiritually through the church.  Christians suffer tribulation when gospel is opposed.  No future earthly future for Israel.  Rapture, Jesus coming, end of world at same time.

  21. 21. Amillennial View "Amillennialism," therefore, is the teaching about the thousand year period of Revelation 20 that denies that this period is a literal one thousand year period of history during which Christ will establish an earthly kingdom in the world. Positively, amillennialism holds that the thousand year period of Revelation 20 is a figurative description of the entire period from Christ's exaltation until shortly before His second coming. During this period two important events take place. One occurs in the abyss: Satan is bound. The other happens in heaven: the martyrs live and reign with Christ. A DEFENSE OF (REFORMED)AMILLENNIALISM Prof. David J. Engelsma – circa 1995-1996
  22. 22. Amillennial View  The Millennium (Rev 20) rule is now, symbolically, spiritually. Jesus is reigning in the hearts of Christians, or in the church.  Christians suffer tribulation in the world.  No future earthly future for Israel.  Rapture, Jesus coming, end of world at same time.
  23. 23. Amillennial View Implications  Israel is replaced by the Church.  Unfulfilled promises fulfilled in the church Spiritually.  Great Tribulation (Matt 24, Dan 9:27) is for Christians/Church.  Rev 6-19 Judgments are for the Church.
