The Millennial Question by John Stevenson
THE MILLENNIAL QUESTION
Does the Bible teach that there will be a future 1000 year millennial kingdom on earth? Instead of beginning with Revelation 20, I would like to go back and see what Jesus and the apostles taught concerning the Kingdom.
another quote from article:
‘In John 6, Jesus mentions that ALL believers will be raised up at the same time –the last day.
“And this is the Father’s will which has sent me, that of ALL which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again AT THE LAST DAY. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that EVERY ONE which sees the Son, and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY.” (John 6:39-40).
“No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him: and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY” (John 6:44).
“WHOEVER eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY” (John 6:54).
If ALL believers are to be raised up on the last day, and Jesus says this is the case, then it stands to reason that there will not be several different resurrections of believers separated by a thousand years. Indeed, if the last day is really the last day, then we cannot postulate a few more days to follow, let alone a thousand years.’
