Literal Bible on The Thousand Years and First and Second Resurrections.

Revelation 20:1-15 and “a” or “the” thousand years.

There would be no objection to Scofield and followers replacing the words “the thousand” or “a thousand” if they would not make it one thousand and covert it to numbers.  If they must use numbers all the time it should be 1000x, since a or the thousand is a variable for the last days, starting with Peter’s announcement on the first day of Pentecost after the Ascension of Christ and ending with the withdrawal of the Holy Spirit from earth.

“Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.” (Revelation 20:4-6)

Why the x in 1000x, the x is needed since the first resurrection of the martyred dead will take place during all the last days, so you see that if one martyr dies today in the year 2018, and you now it is happening across the world today especially as victims of ISIS and other radical Muslims.  What would the x variable have to be if Christ came today, well it would be 1000x = 2018 years, or x = 2018/1000 = 2.018.

It makes sense to concentrate more on the first and second resurrections than on the bad mathematics of 1000 years.  The greater reward comes to Christians of martyrdom like the first 12 disciples of Jesus,  Hence they have the blessing of immediately going with resurrection bodies to be with Christ.  The rest of us, here on earth and in heaven, have to wait patiently here or in heaven for our resurrection bodies which is the second resurrection, at the Second Coming of Christ.  How could Scofield and followers make a mess of something that is so simply? For money, Scofield was a scoundrel but an aggressive and , divorced and talented lawyer without formal Bible training, almost criminal who contracted with Oxford Press to change the Bible with Notes to promote the cause of the Zealots.  Even the Scofield Memorial Church Congregational Church, formerly the First Congregationalist Church in Dallas of Scofield and Chalmers, has finally admitted the dubious character and behavior of Cyrus Scofield; yet none of that stops the influence of Chalmers at Dallas Theological Seminary, and the graduates with promotion in Lifeway Bookstore of new Study Bibles based around the Scofield notes.  You must decide that today, it is also for the money, or some other profit or personal gain.

On the positive side, may to be recommended to follow the SunGrist Literal Bible on at .

And clearly you see in this great Revelation 20 chapter the chaining of Satan when the Holy Spirit came in great power and glory on the first day of Pentecost after the Ascension, to “convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and judgment” thus thwarting and binding the work of Satan, the period of last days from the coming the Holy Spirit to the withdrawal, and then a little while with final destruction and the intervention of Christ with His Second Coming.

“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.”  (Revelation 20:1-4)
