Study The Genuine So You Can Spot The Counterfeit
by Stephen Vattimo
9/04/2017 / Education
I am writing this short commentary on Revelations Chapter 20, due to witnessing a pastor telling his congregation , " that no where in the Bible,does it say Christians will rein.with Christ on the earth for a thousand years.
He told his congregation that Jesus’s rein is a spiritual one ,not a physical one.
His kingdom is reining in christians through the Holy Spirit.
So while i was listing to his teaching,I open my Bible to Revelations chapter 20 and read it to my self. According to this chapter in the Bible there is going to be a thousand years where the Devil and His Demons will be chain up and place in a pit, and they will not be able to deceive man kind . At this time Christ will rule the Earth as supreme leader,and christian will be His ruling body.
After Christ’s thousand year rein, the Devil and his fallen angel will be loosened , and they will deceive all human race that does not belong to Christ. These armies then will surround the City of God to conquer it. But fire will come down from Heaven and consume them.
You have to remember that even thou the Devil will not be able to influence the human race for a thousand years , this does not mean that all of the human race will be Christians. It means that The World will be under submission to Jesus’ One World government.
After The final conflict between God and Satan takes place,there will be second resurrection, which be made of all the the unbelieving people through the history of man,who will be judged by two books. one the book of life ,which they will be shown that their name is not written in it ,because only those who are Christians have their name in this book.
Then the book which has all their deeds recorded in it will be shown to them.
Ever one of them who have rejected salvation through Christ will take their part in the eternal lake of fire with the devil and his demons wich they will suffer eternal torment.
Revaluation Chapter 21 goes on to tell us that God will do away will the old creation
Create a new world which will not be touched by the cruse of sin. The heavenly kingdom will no longer be separated from the Earthly one,because their will be no sin to separated the two.
Here is Revelation Chapter 20
Revelation 20American Standard Version (ASV)
20 And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain [a]in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, the old serpent, which is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, 3 and cast him into the abyss, and shut it, and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years should be finished: after this he must be loosed for a little time.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as [b]worshipped not the beast, neither his image, and received not the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand; and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 The rest of the dead lived not until the thousand years should be finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: over these the second death hath no ©power; but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him [d]a thousand years.
7 And when the thousand years are finished, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 and shall come forth to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to the war: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up over the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down [e]out of heaven, and devoured them. 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where are also the beast and the false prophet; and they shall be tormented day and night [f]for ever and ever.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat upon it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne; and books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead that were in it; and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death, even the lake of fire. 15 And if any was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.
Here is my argument for those who think the thousand year rein of Christ began after the crucifixion of Christ.
Since the death ,burial and resurrection of Christ, there has been no time in history that their hasn’t been persecution against Christians and Jews.
Their has been no time in history that war fare between nation has stopped.
no world peace.
Their has never been a one world government.or economic system
Evil has never stopped.
Jerusalem has never been the capital of a one world government.
Jesus the Messiah has never set up a Earthly Government which all of mankind has submitted under it’s authority.
Conclusion is, there is no evidence in the history of man that supports the believe that the thousand year time frame where the devil and his demons have been bound,and their influence has been remove from mankind for a thousand years.
Their is no evidence of the world ever living in a time of peace, let alone a thousand year period of time of peace.
These thing that have not happened yet,will happen when Christ set up his Earthly goverment rule,over the Earth.
Friends if there there is a whole chapter of the bible that teaches about the thousand year rein of Jesus with his followers over the physical earth,do not listen to some commentator, pastor,teacher who tell you there no where in the bible that teaches there is going to be a thousand year rein of Jesus on the earth.
Read the word of God to know the truth, so you won’t be deceived by some one who is mishandling the word of God.
