Milennial Reign of Christ

My views of the Millennial reign of Christ has changed over the years but not significantly. I see the Book of Rev as prophecy to be fulfilled and the removal of the church in the Rapture will be the beginning of Jacob's Trouble. I believe there will be a literal 1000 year reign in which Satan will be bound. I believe Christ will reign for 1000 years and the church will reign with him. During the 1000 year reign I believe people will marry, give in marriage and have kids. After 1000 years Satan will be loosed and allowed to tempt those born during this time. Their decision will determine their future abode - heaven or hell. As they encompass Jerusalem, they are destroyed by Jesus and the White Throne Judgment now occurs and those who elected to refuse grace will be judged according to the law. Those unsaved will have a new abode in the lake of fire along with Satan, Antichrist and False Prophet. Eternity now begins and the Christians will reign as kings and priests over God's new creation.

Although this is dispensational theology at its best (or worse) it fits into the overall picture I have of end time events.
