The Christian scriptures in Revelations refers to a period of time that the saints will reign with Christ. "And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years." Rv 20:4b In the preceeding sentence it tells us that these saints were those who did not received the mark of the beast on their foreheads or hands.
This Bible verse in Revelations 20 has been the basis for much speculation and thought. The concept of a 1,000 year period has been extended by some to apply to other passages in Revelations, and by others like Charles T. Russell to apply to vast portions of scriptures. C.T. Russell arbitrarily decided through the entire Bible whether a particular verse was for now, or for this 1,000 year period called the Millenium.
The popular concept of a 1,000 year Golden Age millenium, that has been advertised so strongly by groups like the Watchtower Society has been rarely held by Bible scholars until the last two centuries. The appearance of this Millenium concept on the modern scene has actually derived its principle impetus not from Bible study as much as from a wide-spectrum of Masonic-started groups ranging from the secular communists and socialists, the Second Adventists, certain Rosicrucian groups, and the Jehovah's Witnesses.
This chapter is not an investigation into the meaning of Rev. 20 and what the Bible says about the Millenium. It is an investigation into how the conspiracy has used and manipulated people with these Millenarian visions. According to Scripture Satan quoted Scripture to Christ, the catch was his motivation was wrong.
