Discussion for Luke 19:11

  • Dennis on Luke 19:11
    The biblical reference to a thousand years in Rev 20 is NOT teaching a literal thousand year period that is to take place here on this earth. The whole book of Revelation is referring to the day in which we all live, the entire Gospel Age, however long that may be. What John wrote about, using symbolical language to describe the things which Christ shows him, is what is transpiring all around us. This understanding of the book is called Amillennialism, or a Realized Millennium. Not two comings, nor two judgments, nor a 1,000 yr reign followed by eternity. Rather Christ comes and raises the dead at the "last day." The righteous go into eternal life. The wicked are cast into outer darkness, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.
  • Bill on Luke 19:11
    In a nutshell, millennial security is the belief that God s children are all guaranteed a millennial existence on par with heavenly existence, including heavenly bliss, with the only differences being place and time. Unfortunately, that is not biblical. Ironically, how you live your life of seventy years give or take on earth here and now will determine how you live your thousand year existence in the millennial world. The consequences are sobering either reward and ruling or suffering loss and regretting. The former truly inherits the millennium the latter merely exists in that world, and the existence will not be joyous. This truth is clearly illustrated in the parable of the pounds, Luke 19 11 27. Cr. James Hollandsworth KingdomPreparation Millennial Security
