Have you heard of the millennium—the 1,000 years of peace prophesied in the Bible to happen at the end of time?
There are a lot of viewpoints on this period of time, but only one is biblical. Is there peace on earth? Are the wicked converted? Where is Jesus? Let's dig into the Word and find out!
Question: What happens at the start of the 1,000-year period?
Answer: A resurrection begins the 1,000-year period.
Question: What other events mark the beginning of the millennium?
Answer: At the start of the 1,000 years, the most devastating earthquake and hailstorm in history strike the earth; Jesus returns in the clouds for His people; and all the saints are caught up into the air to meet Jesus.
Question: Many believe the unsaved will have an opportunity to repent during the 1,000 years. What does the Bible say about this?
Answer: It is impossible for any person to repent during the 1,000 years because there will not be a person alive on earth. The righteous will all be in heaven. All the wicked will be lying dead upon the earth.
Revelation 22:11, 12 makes it clear that the case of every person is closed before Jesus returns. Those who wait to accept Christ until the 1,000 years begin will have waited too long.
