This is what the Church says about the concept of Christ ruling the world for a thousand years after the Second Coming
676 The Antichrist’s deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism,577 especially the “intrinsically perverse” political form of a secular messianism.578 677 The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection.579 The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God’s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven.580 God’s triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world.581
Now I ask you WHY is it wrong to think that there will be a thousand year reign whats the harm? I’m having difficulty seeing why The Church thinks it’s not going to happen alot of the early Church Fathers like Justine Martyr believed Christ would rule the world a thousand years. It wasn’t until Augustine came along that it fell out of fashion well so what some of those ealier Fathers might be right. Someone explain all this to me I don’t get it
whats the big deal?
