You know, before the 23rd when the rapture happens
    The Bible and the Future, by the late A. A. Hoekema, is a very good treatment, from a Calvinist POV. Strongly recommended.

    Christ returns before the millennial reign (Revelation 20:6). To say otherwise is to deny God's word.

    Your opinion is duly noted.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    OK. Could you please then give your understanding of Revelation 20:6?
    Revelation 20:6,
    . . . Blessed and holy [is] he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. . . .

    It doesn't actually say anything about Christ being on earth when that happens.

    Revelation 20:4-5,
    . . . And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. . . .

    Who do you think the resurrected Christians are going to rule? Why would it be not on earth?

    William Lane Craig did a very good 14 part study called "Defender's Series: Doctrine of the Last Things," at YouTube.
