What Makes The Millennium A Failure?

Q.  Re: Your study on Dispensationalism.  What makes the Millennium end in failure and judgment?  I’ve always thought it was our Lord’s final triumph over evil–when he briefly looses them to send them into everlasting punishment.  Please enlighten me as to what I have missed here.
