The Remnant Church of Jesus Christ
THE THOUSAND YEARS
(MILLENNIUM)
We believe the thousand years, or millennium, will begin upon the second advent of  Jesus, after the first resurrection of the
saved and their return to heaven.
 (I THESSALONIANS 4:15-17) (15) “FOR THIS WE SAY UNTO YOU   BY  THE   WORD  
OF THE  LORD,   THAT  WE  WHICH  ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN UNTO THE COMING OF THE LORD SHALL NOT
PREVENT THEM WHICH ARE ASLEEP.  (16)  FOR THE LORD HIMSELF SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN WITH A
SHOUT, WITH THE VOICE OF THE ARCHANGEL, AND WITH THE TRUMP OF GOD:  AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST
SHALL RISE FIRST:  (17)  THEN WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH
THEM IN THE CLOUDS, TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR:  AND SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD.”  
(REVELATION 20:6)  “BLESSED AND HOLY IS HE THAT HATH PART IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION:  ON SUCH
THE SECOND DEATH HATH NO POWER, BUT THEY SHALL BE PRIESTS OF GOD AND OF CHRIST, AND SHALL
REIGN WITH HIM A THOUSAND YEARS.”

We believe  that  the  Redeemed, during  this  one-thousand years, will judge sin  and its inception into Lucifer’s heart, the fallen
demonic angels, the sin on this earth, and the fall of all humanity,
(REVELATION 20:4)  “AND I SAW THRONES, AND THEY
SAT UPON THEM, AND JUDGMENT WAS GIVEN UNTO THEM:  AND I SAW THE SOULS OF THEM THAT WERE
BEHEADED FOR THE WITNESS OF JESUS, AND FOR THE WORD OF GOD, AND WHICH HAD NOT WORSHIPPED
THE BEAST, NEITHER HIS IMAGE, NEITHER HAD RECEIVED HIS MARK UPON THEIR FOREHEADS, OR IN THEIR
HANDS; AND THEY LIVED AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST A THOUSAND YEARS.”  
(I CORINTHIANS 6:2-3)  (2)  “DO
YE NOT KNOW THAT THE SAINTS SHALL JUDGE THE WORLD?  AND IF THE WORLD SHALL BE JUDGED BY YOU,
ARE YE UNWORTHY TO JUDGE THE SMALLEST MATTERS?  (3)  KNOW YE NOT THAT WE SHALL JUDGE
ANGELS?  HOW MUCH MORE THINGS THAT PERTAIN TO THIS LIFE?”

We believe that during this one-thousand years, Satan and all of the evil angels (or demons) will be bound by a chain.  We do not
believe that it is a literal chain but a spiritual chain of circumstances; the circumstances being that when Jesus destroys this earth,
all of the Redeemed will be going to heaven with Him, all of the evil people will have been destroyed and are dead, whereby
leaving no human or any life whatsoever on this planet except Satan and his cohorts,
(REVELATION 20:1-3)  (1)  “AND I SAW
AN ANGEL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN, HAVING THE KEY OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT AND A GREAT CHAIN IN
HIS HAND.  (2)  AND HE LAID HOLD ON THE DRAGON, THAT OLD SERPENT, WHICH IS THE DEVIL, AND SATAN,
AND BOUND HIM A THOUSAND YEARS,  (3)  AND CAST HIM INTO THE BOTTOMLESS PIT, AND SHUT HIM UP,
AND SET  A   SEAL  UP  ON  HIM,   THAT  HE   SHOULD   DECEIVE   THE NATIONS NO MORE, TILL THE
THOUSAND YEARS SHOULD BE FULFILLED:  AND AFTER THAT HE MUST BE LOOSED A LITTLE SEASON.”  
(II PETER 2:4)  “FOR IF GOD SPARED NOT THE ANGELS THAT SINNED, BUT CAST THEM DOWN TO HELL, AND
DELIVERED THEM INTO CHAINS OF DARKNESS, TO BE RESERVED UNTO JUDGMENT;”  
(II PETER 3:7,10)  
(7)  “BUT THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH WHICH ARE NOW, BY THE SAME WORD ARE KEPT IN STORE,
RESERVED UNTO FIRE AGAINST THE DAY OF JUDGMENT AND PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN.  (10)  BUT THE
DAY OF THE LORD WILL COME AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT; IN THE WHICH THE HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY
WITH A GREAT NOISE, AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH FERVENT HEAT, THE EARTH ALSO AND THE
WORKS THAT ARE THEREIN SHALL BE BURNED UP."

We believe that  upon  the second coming of our Lord, this world and our heavens will be destroyed; they will be desolate and
void for one-thousand years,
(JEREMIAH 4:23-28)  (23)  “I BEHELD THE EARTH, AND, LO, IT WAS WITHOUT FORM,
AND VOID; AND THE HEAVENS, AND THEY HAD NO LIGHT.  (24)  I BEHELD THE MOUNTAINS, AND, LO, THEY
TREMBLED, AND ALL THE HILLS MOVED LIGHTLY.  (25)  I BEHELD, AND, LO, THERE WAS NO MAN, AND ALL
THE BIRDS OF THE HEAVEN WERE FLED.  (26)  I BEHELD, AND, LO, THE FRUITFUL PLACE WAS A WILDERNESS,
AND ALL THE CITIES THEREOF WERE BROKEN DOWN AT THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD, AND BY HIS FIERCE
ANGER.  (27)  FOR THUS HATH THE LORD SAID, THE WHOLE LAND SHALL BE DESOLATE;  YET  WILL  I  NOT
MAKE A FULL END.  (28)  FOR THIS SHALL THE EARTH MOURN, AND THE HEAVENS ABOVE BE BLACK:  
BECAUSE I HAVE SPOKEN IT, I HAVE PURPOSED IT, AND WILL NOT REPENT, NEITHER WILL I TURN BACK
FROM IT.”  

The “full end” will not come until the end of the thousand years after the final destruction of Satan, the fallen angels, and all the
evil lost of humanity.  This earth will totally be purged by hell’s fire.
 (JEREMIAH 25:33) “AND THE SLAIN OF THE LORD
SHALL BE AT THAT DAY FROM ONE END OF THE EARTH EVEN UNTO THE OTHER END OF THE EARTH:  THEY
SHALL NOT BE LAMENTED, NEITHER GATHERED, NOR BURIED; THEY SHALL BE DUNG UPON THE GROUND.”  
(II PETER 3:10) “BUT THE DAY OF THE LORD WILL COME AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT; IN THE WHICH THE
HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY WITH A GREAT NOISE, AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH FERVENT HEAT,
THE EARTH ALSO AND THE WORKS THAT ARE THEREIN SHALL BE BURNED UP.”  
(Isa. 24:1,3-6,19; Isa. 13:6-11;
Heb. 1:10-11;  I John 2:17; Mark 13:31; etc.).

We  believe  that  at  the  end  of  the  thousand  years,  the Redeemed will return with Jesus Christ and God the Father in the
new city Jerusalem that will come down from God out of heaven to this earth,
(REVELATION 21:2-3)  (2) “AND I JOHN SAW
THE HOLY CITY, NEW JERUSALEM, COMING DOWN FROM GOD OUT OF HEAVEN, PREPARED AS A BRIDE
ADORNED FOR HER HUSBAND.  (3)  AND I HEARD A GREAT VOICE OUT OF HEAVEN SAYING, BEHOLD, THE
TABERNACLE OF GOD IS WITH MEN, AND HE WILL DWELL WITH THEM, AND THEY SHALL BE HIS PEOPLE, AND
GOD HIMSELF SHALL BE WITH THEM, AND BE THEIR GOD.”

We believe that after the new holy city Jerusalem comes down to this earth, it will usher in the second resurrection of the evil
people who are dead, to hell’s damnation.  We also believe that it is at this point of the second resurrection that Satan and all of
the demonic angels will be released from their chain of circumstances and darkness and can now go out, once again, to deceive
and lead the evil people into believing that they can overtake God and His holy city Jerusalem,
(REVELATION 20:7-10,14-15)  
(7)  “AND WHEN THE THOUSAND YEARS ARE EXPIRED, SATAN SHALL BE LOOSED OUT OF HIS PRISON,  (8)  
AND SHALL GO OUT TO DECEIVE THE NATIONS WHICH ARE IN THE FOUR QUARTERS OF THE EARTH, GOG
AND MAGOG, TO GATHER THEM TOGETHER TO BATTLE:  THE NUMBER OF WHOM IS AS THE SAND OF THE
SEA.  (9)  AND THEY WENT UP ON THE BREADTH OF THE EARTH, AND COMPASSED THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS
ABOUT, AND THE BELOVED CITY:  AND FIRE CAME DOWN FROM GOD OUT OF HEAVEN, AND DEVOURED
THEM.  (10)  AND THE DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE,
WHERE THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE, AND SHALL BE TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER
AND EVER.  (14)  AND DEATH AND HELL WERE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.  THIS IS THE SECOND DEATH.  
(15)  AND WHOSOEVER WAS NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.”   
(MALACHI 4:1,3)  (1)  “FOR, BEHOLD, THE DAY COMETH, THAT SHALL BURN AS AN OVEN; AND ALL THE
PROUD, YEA, AND ALL THAT DO WICKEDLY, SHALL BE STUBBLE:  AND THE DAY THAT COMETH SHALL BURN
THEM UP, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, THAT IT SHALL LEAVE THEM NEITHER ROOT NOR BRANCH.  (3)  AND
YE SHALL TREAD DOWN THE WICKED; FOR THEY SHALL BE ASHES UNDER THE SOLES OF YOUR FEET IN THE
DAY THAT I SHALL DO THIS, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS.”  
(Matt. 25:41,46; Isa. 66:15-16; II Thess. 1:8-9;
II Peter 3:12).
 We believe and find God’s epitaph for Satan written in:  (Ezekiel 28:13-19).

We believe that at this point, Jesus will re-create new heavens and a new earth.  We believe it is at this time that the redeemed
of God and His Christ will go out and inherit the earth throughout eternity,
 (ISAIAH 65:17)  “FOR, BEHOLD, I CREATE NEW
HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH:  AND THE FORMER SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERED, NOR COME INTO MIND.”  
(ISAIAH 66:22)  “FOR AS THE NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH, WHICH I WILL MAKE, SHALL REMAIN
BEFORE ME, SAITH THE LORD, SO SHALL YOUR SEED AND YOUR NAME REMAIN.”  
(Rev. 5:10; Matt. 5:5; Psalm
37:11).
(REVELATION 21:1,3,5)   (1)   “AND  I  SAW  A  NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH:  FOR THE FIRST
HEAVEN AND THE FIRST EARTH WERE PASSED AWAY; AND THERE WAS NO MORE SEA.  (3)  AND I HEARD A
GREAT VOICE OUT OF HEAVEN SAYING, BEHOLD, THE TABERNACLE OF GOD IS WITH MEN, AND HE WILL
DWELL WITH THEM, AND THEY SHALL BE HIS PEOPLE, AND GOD HIMSELF SHALL BE WITH THEM AND BE
THEIR GOD.  (5)  AND HE THAT SAT UPON THE THRONE SAID, BEHOLD, I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW.  AND HE
SAID UNTO ME, WRITE:  FOR THESE WORDS ARE TRUE AND FAITHFUL.”
