The Millennium—one thousand year reign of Christ……. • Post Millennial: Christ will return to the earth AFTER the millennium. • Amillennial. No LITERAL thousand-year reign of Christ on earth prior to the final judgment and the eternal state. • Premillennial. Christ will return to the earth PRIOR to the millennium.
>POST --Tribulational: The “taking up” of believers after the great tribulation to be with Christ just a few moments prior to His coming to earth with them to reign during the millennial kingdom. >MID-Tribulational: Christ returns in the middle of the seven year tribulation to rescue believers and again after the tribulation to reign on earth for 1000 years. >PRE-Tribulational: The “taking up” of believers into heaven secretly during Christ’s first return prior to the great tribulation.
The Throne of God… • Throne seems to be a FIXED point, with everything else in heaven located in relationship to it. • Judgment Seat of Christ before which ALL Christians will stand immediately after Rapture to receive rewards or have them "burned up. • The Throne is OCCUPIED.
