I should really be serving God but I am naughty and want an interesting debate about your interpretation of revelation lol.

I wish I was an A milleniumist (or however you write it) as the world only gets better from this point i.e. the perfect world is coming about and whatever we do now to help it goes towards that.
I like this as it gives me manna to do good things for God - see how much I can do to see how fast we can get a perfect heaven and earth.

Pre-mil: This gets me down as although a 1000 year reign of Christ would be lovely, the enemy comes back right at the end and that ruins my peace in the anticipated 1000 years to come.


Ok ok, Sharky you wont live for a 1000 years lol! True if 1000 years is literal, maybe it is metaphorical for a long period of time.
Remember how Charles Spurgeon would not touch Revelation with a 10 foot barge pole oook.



Been thinking recently that Revelation is actually a personal thing to every Christian's walk with God before they go to heaven. And I have been thinking about this as things have been so tough for me.



What do you think?

Hi S&G,
             There are three general views:-
Pre millenial, where there is a 1k years of improving Christianised world and then Jesus returns.
Post millenial, where Jesus returns and rules for 1k years, there is a big rebelion and final battle.
A millenial, who don't believe there is a 1k years period.

That is an over simplifcation of all three views.

My view is that Jesus is coming again. So what about anything else.

I just get persecuted so much when I serve in love that I believe it is the end of the world sometimes.

I am really sorry Brother, do you forgive me for gently preaching that God loves people in town and then getting assaulted.


2 Timothy 3:12 Indeed all those who desire to live a Godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted...

I genuinely forgive you Brother - obviously we know what is up hear and we believe in forgiveness.

If you choose to have an honest heart now then you will agree that you know what is up, otherwise you need to look into your heart - God can help you with that Brother.

A preacher once said "If we are not persecuted in some way for being a Christian then what does that say about our spiritual condition?".


Please forgive me for anything I have done wrong.


Let's put all that we talk about into practice i.e. forgiveness. That is what God wants.


Bless you

S+G,
            Jesus's last command was not to love, though he did command us to love as he loved, but to Go and Make Disciples.
                        If we are not telling people about Jesus and the consquences of not believing in him we are not showing them love.

Point taken Brother and you are right but you blasted me in the first post I made on this thread. I think the same still.

Either way I will let it go now as I don't want to get chucked off this forum as I want to help people instead.


I still think people are not going to listen if we don't say our words with love:
"Give a reason for the hope that you have and do it with gentleness and respect".

Peace out.

How S+G  did I 'blast you' in my reply to your post?

You asked about millenial views and I gave a simple explanation.

Maybe you didn't but I was hurt by this:

Your right that we should only focus on the fact that Jesus is coming again but I only wanted an interesting debate.

Like I said, I just want to let it go please.

Peace out.
