The answer, in brief is: It occurs at the END of the millennium. Since the millennium will last at least 80,000 years or more, and certain signs must occur before the end of the millennium. These signs being that the: lion will lay down with the lamb, child will play by the adders hole, men will beat their swords into plowshares and study war no more, average lifespan of 120 or more (probably "or more" since other verses say "lifespan like a tree"), etc. It will happen just before "then comes the end" per 1 Cor 15:22-26 AFTER all the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, AFTER He (Jesus) has abolished all rule, power and authority.
As R.J. Rushdoony says in all his tapes: "Let us examine the relevant texts: (that is a hint that you should get his tapes, and listen to them in your car or download them to your mp3 player and enjoy them when you have idle time, Likewise with the tapes of James B. Jordan, Ken Gentry, and Gary North)
1 Cor 15:22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. 15:23 But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. 15:24 Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. 15:25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 15:26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
