Millennial sects have typically
believed that the transition from the present age to the millennium
would be anything but smooth, with the Antichrist having to be defeated
and Jesus' reign on earth having to be established. Based on Revelation
20:3, some believe Satan's "Millennial Rebellion" will occur after the
1000 year peace.
On the other hand, those who did not believe in the millennium also
imagined the end of the world as chaotic and catastrophic. The word
Apocalypse has been used for this final phase of human history as we
know it, with Armageddon as the site of the last decisive battle on the
Day of Judgment.
In the Judeo-Christian tradition, a revelation of God's purposes with
the main intention of encouraging an oppressed and suffering minority to
have faith in God and of proclaiming his ultimate triumph;
In a world full of differences, the ones that are underprivileged are
the ones who doesn't have fair opportunities against he well-off
individuals. Giving hope to the less fortunate ones create a possible
optimism to the believers.
The book of Revelation was said to be implying the future as to when
Christ will reign upon his second coming but, like a riddle, the Book of
Revelation is not easy to interpret; full of hidden contexts and
messages. Whether to believe these passages or not depends solely to
