This article considers the meaning and significance of Revelation 19:11-Revelation 20:10. It argues that the vision therein depicts the victory of Christ over Babylon. It is seen as the climax of the preceding vision, and should not be read as the start of a new section. In this way the Millennium is understood not as the sequel to the Parousia (return of Christ) but as a symbol for the delay that the church must expect before God's kingdom comes in its fullness. This is a time during which the nations are won for Christ and the Church triumphs through its sufferings.
