Friday, December 28th: Job 34-36; Revelation 20 ~ Emma
Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Job 34-36; Revelation 20
Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: Job 37-39; Revelation 21
I was having trouble finding a part of today’s passage that stood out to me, so I went to my life application bible and found some interesting notes about Revelation 20:2-4 :
I’ll shorten/paraphrase what it says, but basically there are 3 different positions that most Christians take on this “1,000 years of peace” that this passage talks about: Postmillennialism, Premillennialism and Amillennialism. What those exact stances are is not exactly what stood out to me, but it was the point that was made after which reads:
“These different views about the Millennium need not cause division and controversy in the church because each view acknowledges what is most crucial to Christianity: Christ will return, defeat Satan, and reign forever! Whatever and whenever the Millennium is, Jesus Christ will unite believers; therefore, we should not let this issue divide us.”
I thought this was an excellent point, because, while these topics can be fun to discuss with others who have the same/different view, they are not issues that make or break our salvation. It’s important to remember this so that we don’t let issues like this divide the church, or even our friendships.
