Millennialism: A Thousand Year Reign
There exists among many Evangelical Protestants a dogma
based on some passages in the Bible called
which means a "thousand year reign." The basis for
millennialism is found in the Book of Revelation.
Then I saw an angel come down from heaven, holding
in his hand the key to the abyss and a heavy chain.
He seized the dragon, the ancient serpent, which is
the Devil or Satan, and tied it up for
a thousand years
and threw it into the abyss, which he locked over it and
sealed, so that it could no longer lead the nations astray
the thousand years
are completed. After this, it is
to be released for a short time.
