WHAT IS AMILLENIALISM?
An Eschatological View That There Is No Future Literal Thousand Year Reign
Of The Messiah Jesus This view, held by most established
denominations, teaches that we are already in the millennium. They argue
that Revelation was written in the early 60s a.d. - - prior to the destruction
of the temple and Jerusalem. Thus historical events following the first
decades of the church age met the prophetic timeline written in The Revelation.
This view tends to view prophecy concluding with the destruction of Jerusalem
in 70 a.d. Amillenialists generally hold the view of 'replacement theology'
meaning that the church has replaced Israel. There are numerous sub sets
and variations to amillenialism. Revelation is thought to inspire figuratively.
Interpretation of Scripture

CHRONOLOGIES AND TIMELINES: I have never seen any timeline chart that
agrees with another commentary or church's interpretation. Therefore you
may assume that my version is also not without errors. At this point
no one really knows with certainty the timing of specific events within
the 7 year timeline. It is open to question when the 144000 are chosen
and go forth to minister. It is open to question when the Two Witnesses
begin their ministry I choose an earlier time rather than place their
ministry after the mid term (after 3 1/2 years.) There is still debate
as to whether the 'seals' are regarded as God's judgments or not. So when
you view my chart and see an arrow directed at the time it is my best
approximation and no more.
