    You may have read each of these topics listed, in The Old Testament.

    Each express 'a thousand', as 'magnitude', 'myryiad', etc.

    Remember, for the sake of honesty and investigation into, "What God would have us to UNDERSTAND", The Book of Revelation was NOT the first Book of The Bible that God Wrote and Revealed to Mankind.


    Rebekah is Chosen

    Genesis 24:…59 "So they sent their sister Rebekah on her way, along with her nurse and Abraham’s servant and his men.

    60 And they blessed Rebekah and said to her, “Our sister, may you become the mother of thousands upon thousands. May your offspring possess the gates of their enemies.”

    61 Then Rebekah and her servant girls got ready, mounted the camels, and followed the man."

    ...

    The Ten Commandments

    …5 "You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on their children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,

    6 "but showing loving devotion to a thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My commandments

    .7 "You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not leave anyone unpunished who takes His name in vain.…"

    ...

    Moses Appoints Leaders

    Deuteronomy "1:…10 The LORD your God has multiplied you, so that today you are as numerous as the stars in the sky.

    11 "May the LORD, the God of your fathers, increase you a thousand times over and bless you as He has promised.

    12 "But how can I bear your troubles, burdens, and disputes all by myself?…"

    ...

    The Song of Moses

    Deuteronomy "32:…29 If only they were wise, they would understand it; they would comprehend their fate.

    30 "How could one man pursue a thousand, or two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the LORD had given them up?

    31 "For their rock is not like our Rock, even our enemies concede.…"

    ...

    Moses Blesses the Twelve Tribes

    Deuteronomy "33:1 And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses, the man of God, blessed the children of Israel before his death.

    2 "And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; He shined forth from Mount Paran, and He came with ten thousands of saints. From His right hand went a fiery law for them."

    ...

    God's Enemies Are Scattered

    …Psalm 68:16 "Why do you gaze in envy, O mountains of many peaks? This is the mountain God chose for His dwelling, where the LORD will surely dwell forever.

    17 "The chariots of God are tens of thousands— thousands of thousands are they; the Lord is in His sanctuary as He was at Sinai.

    18 "You have ascended on high; You have led captives away. You have received gifts from men, even from the rebellious, that the LORD God may dwell there.…"

    ...

    Daniel's Vision of the Ancient of Days

    Daniel "7:9 As I continued to watch, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took His seat. His clothing was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze.

    10 "A river of fire was flowing, coming out from His presence. Thousands upon thousands attended Him, and myriads upon myriads stood before Him. The court was convened, and the books were opened.

    11 "Then I kept watching because of the arrogant words the horn was speaking. As I continued to watch, the beast was slain, and its body was destroyed and thrown into the blazing fire."

    So when Jesus says a thousand years, it could mean about 14 billion years?

    And that is the only way that is able to gain consideration, by a novice.

    Why would you despise someone for calling a novice someone who BRINGS SPECIAL, BIBLE-DIRECTED, ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES to INTERPRETING the PROPHETIC LANGUAGE USES, in The APOCALYPTIC GENRE(?)

    UNDER NO CONSIDERATION, WHATSOEVER?

    Being novices is why our Preachers are Apostate and NO EVANGELISM is BEING CARRIED OUT to 1% of WHAT IT HAS TO, ONCE GOD'S MEN SEE THE REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST.

    Jesus is Returning and there is NO MORE OPPORTUNITY for Salvation, after He Comes in The Vengence of our God.

    The "1,000 years" is contained within the "and" of verse of Isaiah 61:2:

    The Year of the LORD's Favor

    1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is on Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and freedom to the prisoners,

    2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of our God’s vengeance, to comfort all who mourn,

    3 to console the mourners in Zion—to give them a crown of beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and a garment of praise for a spirit of despair. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.…

    Jesus Came to Proclaim, "The Day of Salvation", "The Year of The Lord",
    which is Jesus' First Advent and Ministry:

    2 "to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor"

    "and" contains the Entire Period, between Jesus' First Coming and His Second Coming,

    ...after which Period of The Inter-Advent, our Present "Age of Churches",
    Jesus Will Return in The Day of God's Vengeance.


    "the day of our God’s vengeance, to comfort all who mourn",

    It means what it says.

    The question is, "what does it say"?

    God Explains How to Determine What He is Saying.

    Then, when Satan leads men's weakness to say, "it can mean anything", then they are out of the Ballpark of Worshipping God, or Caring How to, and over in the sidelines sandbox holding hands and Dancing with The Devil.

    Someone has to Worship The Beast.

    God didn't say that The Beast's followers were none.........

    Yep, proud novice here. Unfortunately, the self-described "experts" are all missing the Revelation blessing. The good news is, you'll get a crash course during the rapture, on the way up.

    Jesus is Coming Back and that is The Rapture and End of The World, or opportunity to be Saved.

    Satan deceives that there is a second, or third, or fourth chance, and he uses novice students depicting fake 'trib' and 'mill' non-Biblical pure junk, including the stupid idea of, "you'll learn".

    I have a Bible.

    If you don't, you are responsible to crawl to one, in your lifetime.

    Except Scripture doesn't support this.

    If this is what you've been taught about the rapture you've been fed a straw man. I suggest learning the theory. Then try to disprove it.

    If there are multiple chances then why preach the Gospel and call for repentance now?

    Because no one knows their time of death, until it is too late. Luke 12:16-20. . . .

    What do you know?

    9.0.0 > NT Intro iv: SIXTY-SIX NEW TESTAMENT Verses Teach The SECOND COMING of JESUS CHRIST & THE END of TIME.

    There is no disproof for Seven Visions in Revelation Teaching separate views of the same Period of Time, The Inter-Advent Era.

    Reading Revelation straight through, as if it is one big building up to the final chapters, is used by Satan to fool most people on Earth.

    Then, everything that is written there would have to be entirely new and foreign to the rest of The Bible.

    Makes me wonder if there is a forum where people know, or even want to know The Bible, at all.

    I could be sound as a Dollar on the One Covenant of Grace, from Eternity Past, but not Preach it, if Satan wants me to believe Jesus will Come Back and do my soul-winning for me.

    He may make me The President of The United States, but I'll leave it to him to beat people over the head with an Iron Rod, to only then turn against Him, when?

    When the 1,000-year Alarm Clock goes off.

    Isn't that the most ridiculous thing you've ever heard, including from Saturday Morning cartoons?

    There is no debate.

    The STUPIDEST THING A PREACHER CAN DO IS GET IN THE PULPIT and say, "there are four ways to view Revelation". '

    There are Seven.

    And God Gave them.

    There is One view-point, from which to view The ENTIRE CHURCH AGE, and 1,000 SPIRITUAL REIGN of CHRIST, from Heaven, now, with His saints on Earth and in Heaven...IN EACH of SEVEN VISIONS.

    So, there are Seven View-Points from which to Observe The Inter-Advent Era, by God, in Revelation.

    Men think they have 'four'. They have an admission of Stupidity.

    People don't believe or know that Prophecy and Parables and Old Testament Kingdom talk CAN BE INTERPRETED. They just consent defeat and come up with limericks about, "learn the Theory and try to disprove it, because it doesn't meet with wild imaginary hallucinations I have heard and believe APART FROM ACTUAL SCRIPTURE, AT ALL."

    There is one chance, before Jesus Returns, in a couple of seconds, and That is The End of The Earth, as we know it.

    Also, anyone must be Saved prior to death.

    One change prior to death and/ or Jesus Coming Back.

    That is what the Bible Teaches.

    Idiots teach 'Left Behind' and they are lying for The Devil.

    16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

    18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

    19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

    20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

    AND THERE IS NO SECOND CHANCE.

    Even if a soul is alive when Jesus Returns.

    Jesus is Returning in Judgment over the whole World and The Consummation of The Age Will Have Arrived.

    ALLLLLLLLLLLLL of the 'trib' and 'mill' talk is by a novice IN THE END TIMES TEACHINGS of The Bible. WITHOUT EXCEPTION.

    Jesus Doesn't Teach it.
