Remember To Do Your Own Research…

“That there is to be a period of a 1000 years during which Satan shall be bound and Christ shall reign on this earth, is plainly stated in the New Testament. This period is mentioned 6 times in Revelation 20:1-7, and is generally called “The Millennium”, from the Latin words “Mille”, (1000), and “Annum”, (year). It is to be regretted, however, that the word “Millennium” ever supplanted the Biblical word “Kingdom”, for it is this period that Christ taught His Disciples to pray for in the petition – “Thy Kingdom Come.”

Let us drop then for the present the word “Millennium” and look at the word “Kingdom.” In the Book of Daniel, we learn that there were to be “Four World-wide Kingdoms” that were to succeed each other on the earth and that they were to be destroyed in turn by a Kingdom called the “Stone Kingdom”. As those “Four Kingdoms” were “literal” Kingdoms, it follows that the “Stone Kingdom” must be a “literal” Kingdom, for it takes the place of those Kingdoms and “fills the whole earth.” This “Stone Kingdom” is the “Millennial Kingdom of Christ.” The time when this “Stone Kingdom” shall be set up is at the “Revelation of Christ,” when He shall come with the “armies of Heaven” and destroy the Antichrist, (Revelation 19:11-21), and judge the Nations.

“When the Son of Man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the “Throne of His Glory”; and before Him shall be gathered all nations; and He shall separate them one from another as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats, and He shall set the Sheep, (Sheep Nations), on His right hand, but the Goats, (Goat Nations), on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom Prepared for You From the Foundation of the World.” Matthew 25:31-34. This Kingdom is an earthly, visible Kingdom, and is the “Millennial Kingdom” of the Lord Jesus Christ.

It will be a “Theocracy”, God will rule in the person of the Lord Jesus, Christ. “And the angel said unto Mary, thou shalt bring forth a son and shalt call His name Jesus. He shall be great and shall be called the ‘Son of the Highest’, and the Lord God shall give unto Him the Throne of His Father David; and He shall reign over the House of Jacob FOREVER, and of His Kingdom, There Shall Be NO END.” Luke 1:30-33. There are 7 of God’s “shalls” in this passage. Four of them have been fulfilled, for Mary did bring forth a “son,” He was called “Jesus,” He was “great,” and was called the “Son of the Highest”; the other three must and will be fulfilled.

Daniel the Prophet describes the event. “I saw in the night visions, and behold, one like the ‘Son of Man’ came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the ‘Ancient of Days’, (God), and they brought Him near before Him. And there was given Him Dominion, and Glory and a KINGDOM that all people, nations, and languages, should serve Him; His Dominion is an Everlasting Dominion, Which Shall Not Pass Away, and His KINGDOM, that which Shall Not Be Destroyed.”

Whether Christ shall sit in person on the Throne at Jerusalem, or whether He shall rule through another is not so clear. There are several passages of Scripture that seem to teach that King David will be raised and placed on the throne again, and that the Children of Israel will seek him, or it may mean that the new King shall be named David.

“Afterward shall the Children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God, and David Their King; and shall fear the Lord and His goodness in the Latter Days.” Hosea 3:5. “They shall serve the Lord their God, and David Their King, whom I will Raise Up Unto Them.” Jeremiah 30:9. “And David, my servant, shall be King Over Them.” Ezekiel 37:24. “I Jehovah will be their God, and my servant David a Prince in Their Midst.” Ezekiel 34:24. “My servant David shall be their Prince Forever.” Ezekiel 37:25.

As the “Lord of Hosts” shall reign in Mt. Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before His ancients “gloriously”, (Isaiah 24:23), the inference is that King David will reign simply as “Regent,” and will be called “King” or “Prince” as circumstances may require. It is very clear from Ezekiel that the “Prince,” whoever he may be, is not perfect, and has to offer sacrifices for himself, Ezekiel 45:22.

We have a hint of the manner of government in the Parable of the Pounds. That Parable was spoken to show what Jesus will do to His servants, (the Jews), when He shall have “received the Kingdom and returned.” The man whose Pound shall have gained “Ten Pounds” will be rewarded by being placed in authority over “ten cities.” The man whose Pound shall have gained “Five Pounds” will have authority over “five cities.” The man who failed to use his Pound is simply deprived of it and loses all opportunity of authority. Luke 19:11-26.

The promise that Jesus made to His Disciples that “In the Regeneration when the Son of Man shall sit on the Throne of His Glory, ye also shall sit upon Twelve Thrones, Judging the Twelve Tribes of Israel”, Matthew 19:28, in all probability does not refer to the “Millennial Age”, but to the “Perfect Age,” the “Age” that is to follow the renovation of the Earth by fire. The use of the word “regeneration” suggests this, as it refers to the time when the present earth is to be “re-created” and made “new”. It has occurred to the writer that we have not as yet the proper perspective as to all the Old Testament prophecies, and that we are putting in the “Millennial Age” some things that belong to the “Perfect Age.” The one just mentioned for example.

Some object to the “visible reign” of King David, or the Disciples on the earth during the Millennium because it involves the anomaly of intercourse between men in the flesh and those who are clad in resurrected and glorified bodies. But why should this be an objection? Did not Jesus appear “eleven” times “after His resurrection”, during a period of “forty days”, to His disciples? Did He not “eat” and “drink” with them during that period? Did they not “walk” with Him to the Mount of Olives and see Him go up in that Same Resurrection Body? Did not angels appear in human form and “eat” and “drink” with men in Old Testament times? Genesis 18:1-8.

We must not forget that they who shall be accounted worthy to obtain “That Age,” and the “Resurrection From Among the Dead”, shall be “Angel like”, (Luke 20:35-36), and like the angels can mingle with earth’s inhabitants, having visible bodily forms, can eat and drink, and there is probably more truth than poetry in the Prophet’s utterance that in those days, “They that wait upon the Lord, (as messengers), shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, (Angels); they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31. This can be said of only those who have been “Raised in Power.” 1 Corinthians 15:42-43.”
