  1. I reckon Christ is coming in glory at the end of the Millennium that started when, as in Revelation 20:1-3, Satan was bound from deceiving the gentiles wholesale, so gentiles now have as much opportunity to believe as Jews.
    Does that make me a post-mill, an a-mill, or just a millstone round people’s necks (I call myself a post-present-mill)?

    • Hi John,

      I know you’re speaking a bit tongue in cheek here, so please don’t take it personally, but the rest of us will probably just continue calling your position a-mill despite the unfortunate and inaccurate prefix. There’s been enough time for the language to change on this one, and it hasn’t yet, so I doubt it ever will.

      Sincerely,
      Pessimistic Now-Millennialist 😉

    • Hi Brandon,
      I think that once it is accepted that a correct transloation of τὰ ἔθνη in Revelation 20:3 is “the gentiles”, it becomes clear that there is indeed a Millennium, and that it started shortly after Pentecost, when the Gospel was opened to the gentiles.
      At no time in my adult life did I imagine that classical postmillennialialism, with its inherent denial of the possibility of Christ’s immediate return, could be a satisfactory option, although “The Son of Man cometh at an hour that YE think not” shows that there will be many that think that it is.
