I am just curious as to the general opinion of my readership in regards to the 'thousand years' in Revelation. Toward what position do you lean? I will briefly describe the order of events in each view below:Historic Pre-Millennialism (world getting worse) Tribulation, 2nd Coming, 1000 years, Judgment Day Dispensational Pre-Millennialism (world getting worse) Rapture, 7 year tribulation, 2nd Coming, 1000 years, Judgment Day Post-Millennialism (world getting better) Christianized 1000 years, 2nd Coming/Judgment Day (same event) A-Millennialism (world getting worse, church getting better) Millennium (symbolic for church age), 2nd Coming/Judgment Day (same event) Pan-Millennialism (I don't even know enough to guess and I don't care) It'll all pan out in the end
* The above are generalities & sweeping statements. There is actually a fairly wide range of thought within each group.
