    I'm not sure what is meant by redundancy in the context of Scripture. What counts surely is the integrity of the text, as given by the Spirit.

    Because the 1,000 years is NOT a literal number! The term 1,000 years was written as “words” not numerically. Therefore, 2Timothy 3:16 and 1Corinthians 2:14 must be utilized. Is there a spiritual significance meaning to the term 1,000 years? Most definitely. We’ll just have to search the Scripture for the spiritual meaning and when you will have found the spiritual meaning, you will have the joy that all the term 1,000 years fits together in the verses mentioned.

    Anytime we find a word, phrase, repeated in Scripture they mean God is driving home a point.

    So now you have become my judge for someone who does not even know there is a spiritual significance in the term 1,000 years?

    I say this kindly and with love. We have for the most part in the past have agreed on many doctrines taught in Scripture. To my surprise, am I beginning to see the real Enoch 111? I know we all have “feet of clay” but that should not create a dissension between us.

    To God Be The Glory

    Just imagine! What if your bank sent you a note saying that the $1000 in your account is not literal? I'm sure you would accept that as perfectly true.
    So what? We do that all the time. If you still write cheques, you will write out One Thousand Dollars only and in the appropriate space write $1,000.00.

    When Christians resort to SPECIOUS ARGUMENTS to protect their false doctrines, it is truly pathetic.
