With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

A rather interesting thought just occured to me. If Peter and Baranabas are correct and that 1000 years is like a day to God, when Jesus comes to reign in his glorified body for "1000 years", would time still pass by for him the same as it does for him in heaven? If that is so then if my calculations are right he could actually reign for 365 million years here on earth if his millenial reign is keyed to his Godhood. Dunno what made me think of this, it just popped in my head.
This is going to take some hardcore biblical scholars to ponder this out, because when it comes to it, i don't seriously think thats an idea anyone has ever considered before.
Stay on topic, any attempts to derail this thread will be met with petitions to have your post removed. Play nice and respect fellow members thoughts and ideas please.

You figure more Christians would realize that passage is a figure of speech meaning that God is not of our time. Hence the word "like" in the passage.
