Amillennialism is the teaching that there is no literal 1000-year reign of Christ as referenced in Revelation 20. It sees the 1000-year period spoken of in Revelation 20 as figurative. Instead, it teaches that we are in the millennium now and that at the return of Christ (1 Thess. 4:16-5:2), there will be the final judgment; and the heavens and the earth will then be destroyed and remade (2 Pet. 3:10). The Amillennial view is as old as the Premillennial view which says there is a future 1000-years reign of Christ and Postmillennialism which states that in the future the world will be converted, and we will usher in the kingdom of God.
