PTB3-18:  The One Thousand Years of Revelation 20 is the “Last Days” of the Bible.

1.  Beginning and end of the last days {1000 years} from Acts, Joel, and Peter.

     a.  Started on the first day of Pentecost after the Ascension of Christ back to heaven with the Coming of the Holy Spirit in great power and glory.

     b.  Ends immediately after the light of the sun, moon, and stars diminished as Christ comes the Second Time.

2.  The famous 1000 years {millennium} of Revelation 20.

Two categories of the dead are mentioned in Revelation 20:4-6:  (1) the Christian dead that died as martyrs, who “live and reign with Christ for a thousand years” (Revelation 20:4,6), called the first resurrection since they have the opportunity just like Moses, Elijah and the Apostles to immediately have a resurrection body as they live and reign with Christ, which by the way indicates that the one thousand years simply represents a very long period of time since all the Christian martyrs did not die at the same time–see NOTE below; and (2) “the rest of the dead”, Christian and otherwise, who go to the intermediate place of “Hades” and who have to wait in soul state without bodies in one of the two divisions of Hades, Paradise or Hell.

       a.  Satan bound for one thousand years (Revelation 20:1-3).

     b.  Actually it is a little more than 1000 years as the “little while” is also included in the “last days”, that time when Satan is released because the Holy Spirit is withdrawn from earth as more fully described in II Thessalonians.

     c.  Spirits live with God and Christ in heaven during this 1000 years {last days} in Revelation 20:5

     d.  The First Resurrection of Revelation 20:5,6.  Actually the verse of 20:4 must be read with 5 and 6

3.  The Release of Satan for a “little while” of Daniel, Revelation 20:3, Revelation 20:7, and II Thessalonians.

4.  The Last Great Battle of Armageddon of Revelation 20:8-9.

5.  Destruction of the old earth by fire is synchronized by God with the destruction of this gigantic army by fire, that army no doubt of Muslims, and led by the man of sin and Satan, which surrounds the old Jerusalem and the camp of the saints.  (Revelation 20:9)

6.  The Bottom Line from God:  The lake of fire and brimstone of Revelation 20:10 and Isaiah 66:24.
