Revelation 20:7 (KJV)
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
I am reminded that one day Is with the Lord as a thousand years. Days are literal in the Bible but time is immaterial to God. It appears to me that all of human history will take place in something that looks to God like seven days.
Revelation 20 has both the binding of Satan and his release for a little season and the two events are a thousand years apart.
Further, the apostle John witnessed in the spirit all one thousand years. Time was immaterial to him too.
Time matters to us. We only have so much time so we must not waste it. But in a sense time is immaterial to us too in that, the time we have one earth passes so quickly and then eternity is upon us. Time is of such little consequence for our eternal souls that it makes no sense to occupy ourselves with it. We ought to live in light of eternity instead of temporality.
