I think this would be a more interesting study if more people took an interest in studying what the bible was talking about when Jesus said He would return one day and there would be a 1000 years that Satan would be put away, and could not deceive the people during that time.
We need to ask the question why? What is the purpose? And why will Satan be released after those 1000 years? And what will we be doing during those 1000 years? Perhaps much more understanding will come.
It just seems odd to me that even people who read their bibles a lot bypass this scripture as though it's not something that they would ever be able to grasp. Could this scripture possibly pull the bigger picture into focus if we just had faith that God would reveal the truth to us?
