    between the Gospel message and the passion to right the world is related to the fact that modern Fundamentalism does not explicitly articulate the social implications of its message for the non-Christian world. While identifying himself within the premillennialism camp, Carl admits that premillennial thinking regarding the kingdom of God, which holds no hope for changing within society, has induced a pervasive mood of “prophetic despair,” whereas Protestant liberalism is at least concerned to address the

    I still recall the first time I saw the “Left Behind” movie with the chaotic disappearances of people, the crunching of steel, smoke bellowing from fires, and the little old lady on the plane whose husband had vanished. The book brings back details that vanished along with the people. Page four of the book immediately tells you what is going on as Rayford’s mind drift back and forth between Hattie, the young flight attendant and his wife who is preoccupied with the rapture. It is what I call “church

    INTRODUCTION It’s a fairly formidable task to come to a conclusion on a Bible verse that there simply isn’t an answer for. What I am referencing is Revelation Chapter 20: 1-6 in which we see a picture of Satan being thrown into an abyss for a thousand years and Christ ruling over the earth. As I dissected the research paper directions for this assignment I dove into the process of learning about each of the views that scholars would contend for. There were several and each of them fairly complex

    Introduction The term millennium does not appear anywhere in Scripture. The idea originated from a thousand year period of time that characterizes the reign of the Messiah. In fact, the phrase “thousand years” is stated six times in Revelation 20. There are three main schools of thought based upon one’s view of the thousand-year reign of Christ. These views are: Amillennial, Postmillennial and Premillennial. Over the centuries these prophetic differences have caused conflict within the body of

    Amillennialism Amillenianism literally means no millennium. This name stems from the disbelief that there will be a literal thousand year period called the golden age, either before or after the return of Christ (Gregg 459). This view unlike the others, is not a new concept, even though the name is new. In fact, R.B. Strimple claims this particular view has been around as long as Christianity (83). Amillennialists generally assume that all millennium prophecies are fulfilled in between the first

    This essay will argue that the eschatology of the Book of Revelation forms an integral part of John’s attempt within the pages of his book to form a literary world in which the forms, figures, and forces of the earthly realm are critiqued and unmasked through the re-focalization of existence from the perspective of heaven. It will attempt to show that, in response to the social, political, religious, and economic circumstances of his readers, the Book of Revelation forms a counter imaginative reality

    The Millennial Reign Christ will soon reign again! Some of the most debated scriptures in the Bible are located in Revelation 20:1-6. This is the period in which Satan is bound and thrown into the bottomless pit. He loses all of his influence on earth for 1000. Consequently, during 1000 years Christ will reign, and all the martyrs, who lost their lives during the tribulation period would be resurrected to reign with Him. Clouse writes, “This period is a time when all humankind’s yearning for
