Will Christ reign on this present earth for 1,000 years when He returns in glory? That is what the Bible strongly affirms (Rev. 20:1-10), and as Christians, a great part of our hope is that, if we are faithful to follow the Lord in this age, we will reign with Him in that age (Matt. 16:24-27).
Unfortunately, in recent years the false teaching of Amillennialism has gained in popularity among evangelical Christians, confusing many believers regarding the truths of the Lord’s return.
In this edition of the podcast, the last in our series on Amillennialism, we continue to deal with this false teaching. The first half deals with some general points regarding it, and the second goes on to deal directly with the key chapter concerning the Millennium, Revelation 20.
