Bi-Millenial Preterism – Two chilia(thousands). Two ages. Two covenants. One ruled on earth the other in heaven. Earth meets heaven at the X(cross). The crossroads if you will.

Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.
I saw an angel descending, having the key to the abyss and the ability to bind. He laid hold of the law giver and
The law was bound for 1000 years from Solomon the son of David to Jesus the son of David. The Jerusalem temple complex was the type, the foreshadow of the New Jerusalem that would come 1000 years later. The first brick and mortar temple was completed and then handed over to the son, Solomon.
Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end of the 1000 years, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.
And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him, Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God.
Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.
the biblical expression “40 days and 40 nights” just means a really long time.
At the time among the Jews, the number forty wasn’t generally used to signify a specific number, per se, but rather more used as a general term for a large figure. When it was used in terms of time, it simply meant a “long time”. Thus, the phrase “40 days and 40 nights” was just another way to say a “really long time”.
The number forty also had great symbolic meaning to the Jews and today among Christians and Muslims as well. The number forty to the Jews is a number that, when used in terms of time, represents a period of probation, trial, and chastisement (not to be confused with judgment which is represented by the number 9).
As the product of 5 and 8, it also signifies grace (5) ending in revival or a new beginning (8). Thus, when 40 is referencing a period of probation, it also often coincides with the meaning derived from the factors 5 and 8. When it relates to enlarged dominion or extended rule, then it is related to the factors of 4 and 10, with 4 representing the creation of something and 10 representing perfection and completeness.
