What is amillennialism? I had never heard of this before. I was reading in one of my books on definitions and came across amillennialism and started to read about it. I was astonished at what I was reading. So, I thought I would share this in my blog. Amillennialism is the theological position that there will be no 1,000-year earthly reign of Christ after his second coming. How they came to this conclusion I have no idea but there it is. there are other views as well that include pre and post millennialism.
Pre-millennialism is the belief that Christ will come back for His Church before the seven-year tribulation period, and after, Christ will rule for 1,000 years. This thought is literal. After the 1,000-year reign, Satan will be loosed on the earth one final time. There are two thoughts on pre-millennialism. 1) dispensational and 2) historical. I will let you looks these up. I just want to give some food for thought.
Post-millennialism is the belief that the millennium is not an actual reign of 1,000 years, but that the millennium is happening right now. This thought holds that when Christ died on the cross and rose from the dead the 1,000-year reign started at this point.
There is a lot of information on the internet about these topics and I urge you to search for yourself to find the answers to each. Do not take my word or anyone else’s. Read for yourself and decide what your heart tells you. Most importantly. pray for wisdom and discernment, and then listen to that which the Lord tells you.
