The doctrine of the pre-Tribulation rapture was popularized by John Nelson Darby of the Plymouth Brethren Church and the Scofield Reference Bible which spread Dispensationalism, a form of Protestant Fundamentalism that divides God's saving actions into several ages or dispensations. In modern times Dispensationalism was popularized by Hal Lindsey's "The Late Great Planet Earth," and the "Left Behind Series." Some claim that it originated from a vision claimed by a 15 year old Scottish girl named Margaret MacDonald. It seems to have originated in a movement founded by Edward Irving (1792-1834) that was a pre-Pentecostal form of Pentecostalism
Because of Rev. 21 there were Fathers who believed in that Christ would come and establish a 1,000 year reign. However, the correct Orthodox view as reflected in the article is that the 1,000 year reign refers to the Church and the "first resurrection" to the Mystery of Holy Baptism. In order to make it clear that the Church did not believe in Chalism, the 2nd Ecumenical Council, Constantinople I in 381, added the words, "whose kingdom shall have no end..." to the Creed.
