The Millennium 1,000-year period What starts off this 1,000 period? Rev. 20:4: These came to life again and lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. A resurrection begins the 1,000-year period. What is this resurrection called and who will be raised in it? Rev. 20: This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection It is called the first resurrection. It will be the righteous people, “the blessed and holy” of all ages-- who are raised in it. There is another resurrection. What is this second resurrection and who will be raised in it? Rev. 20:5: But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. These are the wicked and they live not again until the 1,000-year period is finished. John 5:28,29 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. This second resurrection is called the resurrection of damnation. It takes place at the close of the 1,000-year period. And so the resurrection of the righteous begins the 1,000-year period and the resurrection of the wicked ends the 1,000 years. Now can everyone agree on this basic starting point?
