The author emphasizes the point that the binding of Satan narrated in Revelation 20 was effected through the ministry, sacrificial death, and exaltation of Jesus Christ. Further in this article, the author discusses the identity of the souls who had been beheaded, who were reigning with Christ in the millennium.
The author demonstrates that the binding of Satan has already taken place. This becomes evident when Jesus announced that his coming meant that he had first bound the strong man, Satan, before he plundered his house.
Postmillennialism teaches that Jesus will return after the millennium. The controversy around this teaching centers around the interpretation of Revelation 20:1-10. Should this passage be understood literally or figuratively? Postmillennialism reads this text figuratively, but presents a different understanding than the common Reformed view on the topics of the binding of Satan, the reign of saints, the first resurrection and the victory of Christ.
