    The word millennium is a combination of two Latin words, mille, meaning a “thousand,” and annus, meaning a “year”.

Since Revelation 19 is a vision of the return of Christ, and since the millennium of Revelation 20 follows this event, it seems that the premillennial position is the most likely one. However, if the considerations we have summarized in the preceding are correct, the premillennial position is seriously compromised, if not refuted.

    The first five seals described in the book of Revelation are dealt with in 11 verses (see Revelation –11; only 3 percent of the total verses in the book), while verses (70 percent) deal with the sixth and seventh seals and the final glory of the earth.

It's exciting because it records dramatic visions about the role of Jesus and the church in the history of the world. But it's also confusing because its imagery is so foreign to modern readers. Even so, the overall message is clear: King Jesus is returning in victory.
