The kingdom of God has multiple facets to it. One important phase of God’s kingdom program is the millennium. The position argued here is that the millennial kingdom of Christ is earthly and future from our standpoint in history. The millennium is not being fulfilled today but will follow certain events such as worldwide tribulation, cosmic signs, the rescue of God’s people, and judgment of the nations. This view of the millennium is found in both testaments of the Bible. The Old Testament tells of an intermediate era that is different from both our present age and the coming eternal state. The New Testament then tells us how long this intermediate period will be—one thousand years.
