A THOUSAND-YEAR REBUILDING PERIOD<quoted text>
Screaming at Snorkler is not going to faze him, you can be sure.
Here you have lied once again. Nowhere have you ever shown that our literature said that "Armageddon would be here in 1975."
It is not in print, you have not shown it in print, you cannot show it in print. That is a lie that you have repeated over and over.
According to the Bible timetable, mans history on earth has been nearly 6,000 years. Adam was created in 4026 B.C.E., which means that six thousand years of human history end about the fall of 1975 C.E. We are in the great 7,000-year rest day of God, starting at the time he rested after the creation of Adam and Eve. There are, therefore, a thousand years left to run. Without Satan and his demons to disturb mankind it will indeed be a restful time. It will be like a sabbath. In a way it will be a sabbath within a sabbath. The last thousand years of Gods great seven-thousand-year rest is a special sabbath over which the Son of man will be Lord.Matt. 12:8.
Since Satan is to be loosed along with his demons for a little while, by the end of this sabbath millennium mankind will have to be considerably changed, so that Satan will be unable to influence them so easily to take the course of wickedness that past history records. They will have to be helped so that they are able to withstand the final test at the loosing of the Serpent and the demons. This work, therefore, is to be done during the thousand-year reign of Christ. During his rule righteousness will be in the earth and the people will be taught righteousness. Christ and his 144,000 associate kings and priests will minister to mankind and raise them up from the imperfect state in which desires of the flesh have such a hold upon them. They will be able to make over their personalities and arrive at physical perfection. But as we go on farther into the Revelation prophecy we get much more detail and enlightenment on this, for the blessings that God has in store for mankind when the Great Disturber is out of the way are greater than man by his own reasoning can conceive.John 5:22, 28, 29; Acts 17:31; 2 Pet. 3:13; Eph. 4:22, 23.
