Rev 20:1-11. Revelation chapter 20 describes the Lord Jesus reigning on the earth with the resurrected saints for a thousand years. It is a chapter that is avoided by many and has been a source of controversy for others. Is this passage describing a literal future reign of Jesus on this earth or is it symbolic of Jesus reigning through the Church now? What are the characteristics of this reign as described in Revelation and other passages of Scripture? These important questions are addressed in this sermon.
