vs. 3 - During the 1000 years Satan cannot deceive the nations any more. The Saints will be judges (Psalms 149:9) and officers of peace (Isaiah 60:17). The unsaved will be raised in this resurrection. In short, I believe that the most reasonable interpretation of the 1000 years is that we are in the 1000 years now, as the end days have already begun. During that time, the 144,000 heavenly joint heirs will be judges and will rule “as kings with the Christ for 1,000 years.” (Revelation 14:1-3; 20:1-4; Romans 8:17) Judgment Day is not some hurried event lasting a mere 24 hours. At the end of Revelation, we learn that this period when Christ reigns is to last 1000 years (Revelation 20:1-6). Don’t we have to be on earth to “reign” over others during this time?

Answer: The second resurrection takes place at the close of the 1,000-year period. Some teach that at his second coming the Christ will set up a kingdom here on earth.  Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. Now, Revelation will take up the subject of Christ's long anticipated and prophesied thousand year reign. The Lord Jesus Christ’s 1,000 year Reign The Lord’s Millennium Reign Revelation 20:4 – “Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. THE THOUSAND YEAR REIGN The book of Revelation, chapter 20, is the only New Testament account of the “Thousand Year Reign of Christ.” It is only found in this passage within the book of Revelation. VERSE 7 (Rev 20:7 KJV) And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, vs. 5a - The rest of the dead will be raised at the end of the 1000 years. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a … The Bible says plainly that the saints will “reign forever and ever” (Revelation 22:5). It is called the resurrection of condemnation. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. It is the only place that tells us that it will be a thousand years duration. Hence this 7th 1,000 years since creation, the 7th millennium, is the millennium of "rest" (God rested on the 7th day of creation week). Does it not stand to reason that they too will have to make a deliberate decision to serve God of their own volition as Adam and Eve, and all mankind, have? 1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
