Jesus Christ's Millennial Kingdom: How Long is it?

 

Recommendation:

Development.

   It is essential for answering heading’s question to search out the Scriptures. First we must understand that One Day is with the Lord as A Thousand Years, and A Thousand Years as One Day (2 Peter 3.7-12; Psalm 90.4). But, which Day that is?; that Special Day is each believer’s Day of Salvation, the believer receives from God Power to tread under foot serpents and scorpions (which being interpreted is to overcome the devil and his army) and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing by any means hurt him (Luke 10.18-19; Psalm 91.1-16; Jeremiah 30.10-11); in addition, it is impossible that the devil deceives the Very Elect (Matthew 24.12-14 and Matthew 24.22-24).

   John (Revelation 20.1-3) wrote that satan was bound A Thousand Years that should deceive the nations no more, which must be understood as satan should deceive no more the Very Elect which the Lord Jesus Christ takes out from every nation under heaven (Acts 10.34-35; Romans 8.14-30; Romans 9.15-16; Romans 10.12-16 ; Romans 11.7-10; 1 Corinthians 8.3; Proverbs 8.17; Galatians 3.26-29 ; Galatians 4.5-7). As we shall further see the Very Elect belong both to the Old and New Testament. Now, Who did bind satan that should deceive no more the Very Elect?. We may read that when a strong man armed (satan) keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace; but when stronger than he (Jesus Christ) shall come upon him, and overcome him, He takes him all his armour wherein he trusted and spoils his goods (see Luke 10.18 ; Luke  11.20-23; Matthew 12.29). If we also read Mark 3.27-29, we can get more light about it: “No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except He will first bind the strong man; and then He will spoil his house” (see John 12.31; John 13.31 and John 16.11).

   The Lord Jesus Christ did bind satan to rescue all his Very Elect (see Job 19.29 and Job 40.19), and the Lord did it through his “Sword”, it is to say his Holy Spirit (see James 2.19 and James 4.7-10; Ephesians 6.16-18).

   As we did affirm above the Very Elect belong both to the Old and New Testament; on this wise John wrote (Revelation 20.4): “…and they lived and reigned with Christ A Thousand Years” (These are all of them which abide beside the Lord outside this world); whereas in Revelation 20.5 we may read: “…but the rest of the dead lived not again until the Thousand Years were finished. This is the First Resurrection (or the Day of Salvation); wherefore Paul did affirm: “To Day if ye will hear his Voice, harden not your hearts” (Hebrews 3.15 and Hebrews 4.7). Moreover: “For He saith I have heard thee in a Time Accepted, and in the Day of Salvation have I succoured (helped) thee: Behold Now is the Accepted Time, Behold, Now is the Day of Salvation” (2 Corinthians 6.2).

 

Do you ask yourself how the rest of the dead live again?

   Please, read slowly Luke 15.11-32; Romans 6.1-14; 1 Corinthias 15.21-29 and 1 Corinthias 15.52-58. After the reading you have perceived that it is essential to be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ: “Know ye not that so many of us are baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?”.     Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the Glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in Newness of Life”. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his Resurrection” (Romans 6.3-5). This is the First Resurrection as we may read in Revelation 20.5. If you didn’t understand it, go on as follows:

 

How can be explained that the Lord Jesus Christ did promise us an entrance into His Everlasting Kingdom? (see 2 Peter 1.11).

   Jesus Christ being God Himself is Eternal (1 Johm 5.20; Isaiah 9.6; Hebrews 13.8; Revelation 11.15) therefore His Kingdom is Eternal too, so It endures throughout all generations (Ephesians 1.19-21; Ephesians 2.5-6 and Ephesians 2.10; Romans 5.17-18). While in the Book of Psalms it is written: “The Lord sitteth upon the flood, yea the Lord sitteth King for Ever” (29.10), and “Thy Kingdom is an Everlasting Kingdom; and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations” (145.13). As regards generations, we may read: “The Lord shall Reing for Ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the Lord” (Psalm 146.10; see also Revelation 11.15; Exodus 15.18; Jeremiah 10.10; Zechariah 14.9).

   The Holy Word of the Lord gives us a full assurance that it is impossible a Jesus Christ’s millennial reing, like as it is understood by many people; because Jesus Christ both Lives and Reings for Evermore (Revelation 1.17-18; Revelation 2.8).

 

Jesus Christ shall appear the Second Time to Save them which look for Him (see Hebrews 9.28).

   Paul did write about this matter to the Christians of Thessalonica: “… seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; and to you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus Christ shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking Vengeance on them that know not God, and that Obey Not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the Glory of his Power; when He shall come to be Glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that Day” (2 Thessalonians 1.5-10; see also 2 Peter 3.7-12; Revelation 20.9; Matthew 22.7; 1 Peter 4.17-19; 2 Thessalonians 2.11-12):

From the former we may plainly understand that when the Lord Jesus Christ comes back He shall bring all Believers unto Everlasting Life (Romans 8.1; Ezekiel 36.24-38; Jeremiah 29.12-14), whereas He shall bring all unbelievers unto Everlasting Punishment (Matthew 25.31-46; Matthew 24.13-14 and Matthew 21.22; 2 Thessalonians 2.13-17; Ezekiel 20.38-40Ezekiel 28.15-19; Jeremiah 51.58; Jeremiah 51.64; Ezekiel 38.16-23). “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the Dead in Christ shall rise first, then We which are alive and remain shall be changed and caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord (see 1 Thessalonians 4.16-17 and 1 Corinthians 15.51-58). Please, pay much attention: It shall only happen to all of us which are in Jesus Christ; and how long shall we be with the Lord?, For Evermore, and not for a period of one Thousand Years. Let us remember that Jesus Christ’s Kingdom is Everlasting; but if you didn’t understand yet, go further and see Hebrews 9.27-28: “And as it is appointed unto men Once to Die, and after this the Judgment and the Second Death (see Revelation 20.6 and Revelation 20.14-15). So Christ was Once offered to bear the sins of many ; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the Second Time Without sin unto Salvation” (see also Ephesians 2.1-10). As you may read, it is written that Christ shall appear the Second Time to Save them which look for Him and to establish not a Kingdom for a period of One Thousand Years.

   Think yourself about the following: “It is impossible for those who were Once Enlightened and fall again, to be renew unto Repentance” (see Hebrews 6.4-6). Further, Why should the Lord establish a Kingdom for One Thousand Years?.

   Most of unlearned and unstable (2 Peter 3.16) think that there shall be a New Opportunity for Repentance to all them which didn’t do it before the Second Jesus Christ’s coming. Such a thought has no Biblical foundation, because as Paul did affirm, Christ was offered Once for all, and He shall come the Second Time Without Sin (see Hebrews 9.27-28; Hebrews 10.10 and Hebrews 10.1-39) To Save them that look for Him. “For it is impossible for those who were Once Enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly Gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the good Word of God, and the Powers of world (age) to come, if they shall fall away, to Renew (revive) them again unto Repentance, seeing they hang to themselves the Son of God afresh and put Him to an Open Shame. For the earth which drinketh in the rain that come oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs, suitable for them by whom it is dressed receiveth Blessing from God. But that which bearth thorns and briers is Rejected, and it is nigh unto Cursing, whose End in to be Burned” (see Hebrews 6.4-8 and Hebrews 4.1-7; Revelation 6.11; Matthew 25.41 and Matthew 25.46). For, “But the heavens and the earth, which are Now, by the same Word are Kept in store, reserved unto Fire against the Day of Judgment and perdition of ungodly men” (2 Peter 3.7; see also John 3.16-18; John 3.36John 5.29 and  John 12.48-50; Luke 11.31-32; Psalm 41.1-2).

 

Conclusion:

  • One Thousand Years are One Day, this Special Day is both each Believer’s Day of Salvation and Final Day too, in which the Lord shall come to catch up his People, all of them who shall be raised and those who remain alive. Afterward, the Lord shall punish all wicked men which shall be Burned into the Everlasting Fire (see Isaiah 27.1; Job 19.29; Job 34.20 and Job 34.25; James 4.12; 1 Thessalonians 5.2-3; Proverbs 2.21-22).

  • The Millennial Reing (or Kingdom) as it is understood by unlearned and unstable has no Biblical Foundation; by reason of:

a) The Lord Jesus Christ Lives and Reings for Evermore and not for a period of One Thousand Years (see Ephessians 1.21 and Hebrews 13.8).

b) It is essential Bloodshed for Forgiveness of sins (Hebrews 9.11-28), otherwise there is no remission. The Lord Jesus Christ Gave Himself Once For All; so whosoever that didn’t repent while it is present the Accepted Time or Day of Salvation; which is Right Now, neither has been baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ nor has endured until the end of his physical life, or until the Second Coming of the Lord, in Jesus Christ’s Gospel, shall receive the same Punishment as satan and all his followers (wicked men). (see Revelation 20.10 and Revelation 20.13-15; Matthew 10.22; Hebrews 10.26-31). A-men and A-men.
