The Bible appears to be associating the phrase thousand years to Christ Himself. However, in tribulation and judgment it becomes the rule of antichrist. Samson, for example slaying a thousand men with the jawbone of an ass seems to be speaking of God’s judgment on the Church (thousand men). The Elect also ruling with Christ a thousand years would be a reference to God redeeming the Elect from Babylon through revelation.
