14. THE MILLENNIUM REIGN OF CHRIST
The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on the earth for one thousand years (Zech. 14:5; Matt. 24:27,30; Rev. 1:7; 19:11-14; 20:1-6). This millennium reign will being the salvation of national Israel (Ezk. 37:21,22; Zeph. 3:19-20;) and the establishment of universal peace (Is 11:6-9; Micah 4:3,4).
