The Agonies Of Great Tribulation Period Before The Millennial Reign Of Global Peace Under King Jesus Christ.
As active soul winners and Rapture ready believers, Lord Jesus Christ has a strong warning for us in the Bible.
“When the Son of Man (Jesus Christ) comes, it will be the same as the thing that happened during Noah’s time. In those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking. People were marrying and giving their children to be married. The people were still doing those things until the day Noah entered the boat. Those people knew nothing about what was happening. But then the flood came and all those people were destroyed. It will be the same when the Son of Man (Jesus Christ) comes. Two men will be working together in the field. One man will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain with a mill. One woman will be taken and the other woman will be left. So always be ready. You don’t know the day your Lord (Jesus Christ) will come….The Son of Man (Jesus Christ) will come at a time when you don’t expect Him.” (Matthew 24:37-44).
The glorious Rapture is a blessed hope of all active soul winners and dedicated Rapture watchers worldwide. The Rapture trumpet can sound anytime! It will be suddenly and unexpectedly! Only those who are perpetually ready for Rapture will hear the Rapture trumpet, become transformed gloriously and caught up into the sky for the glorious trip to heavenly New Jerusalem with Lord Jesus Christ and the heavenly Angels.
“Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep (die), but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For what is mortal must be changed into what is immortal; what will die must be changed into what cannot die.” (1 Corinthians 15:51-53). “For the Lord Himself (Jesus Christ) will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
After the glorious Rapture, the satanic civil government described in Revelation 13:1-18 will be under the total control of Antichrist and his New World Order (NWO) evil forces. The False Prophet will work closely with Antichrist to deceive the unraptured people who are left behind on glorious Rapture day. During the great tribulation period, left behind lukewarm Christians who are now very zealous for Lord Jesus Christ will be persecuted and martyred horribly. Millions of them will be tortured and beheaded due to their refusal to worship Antichrist as “God” and also accept his mark of the Beast (RFID chip/human barcode: 666) either in their right hands or foreheads (Revelation 13:14-18).
There will be two kinds of people on the Earth during the 7 years worldwide tribulation period: those who will accept Lord Jesus Christ by faith in His blood shed on the cross for their sins and those who will reject Jesus Christ and instead follow Antichrist. The deluded followers of Antichrist will end up killing those who believe and revere the name of Jesus Christ. Presently, where do you stand? Have you ever personally invited Lord Jesus Christ to come into your life to forgive your sins and save your soul from eternal doom in eternal burning hell? If so, when? If you have not done so or you are not sure you have, you must do so right now! Rapture is imminent! Do not delay your salvation till tomorrow! Rapture will take place suddenly when you are not expecting it. Don’t be left behind on glorious Rapture day!
Indeed, according to Revelation 6-16, after glorious Rapture, this world will experience 7 years worldwide tribulation period full of severe trials, famines, earthquakes, pestilences, wars, divine judgments, etc. Millions of left behind lukewarm believers will be martyred for their faith in Lord Jesus Christ by the satanic agents of Antichrist. Severe tribulation will be worldwide after Jesus Christ removes Rapture ready born again Christians and the restraining power of the Holy Spirit (2 Thessalonians 2:3-12).
The revealing of Antichrist will spell trouble, terror and tragedy for the unbelievers and lukewarm believers left behind on glorious Rapture day. The “man of sin” (Antichrist) prophesied in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 will achieve worldwide power by conning his deluded followers worldwide to follow him. He will pretend as if he can create an orderly society out of one that has been reeling in chaos. His False Prophet will work miraculous wonders by the power of Satan. Later, the benevolence of Antichrist will turn to malevolence. He will fiercely persecute and attempt to slaughter all who accept Lord Jesus Christ and would refuse his demand that he be worshipped as “God” (Revelation 6:9-11). Antichrist will conduct a reign of terror bringing death to multitudes, both Jews, left behind lukewarm believers and Gentiles (unbelievers).
Antichrist will not be the only source of suffering during the 7 years worldwide tribulation period. In addition, this terrible period will be marked by great calamity that will come as a result of God’s judgment and wrath (Joel 1:15, Revelation 11:18; 16:9). Amid this devastation will be the death of one quarter of the world’s population (Revelation 6:8), massive earthquakes (Isaiah 2:19), catastrophic fires (Isaiah 24:1-6) and sudden destruction (1 Thessalonians 5:3). The Earth will experience unparalleled trouble as God’s wrath is poured out on all left behind people (Isaiah 13:6-11). The unbelieving nations will not go unpunished by the hand of God. They will live to hate the day they cast their lot with God’s arch-enemy (Satan). For generations their leaders will have rejected God and mocked the Lord Jesus Christ. A just punishment will befall them during the 7 years worldwide tribulation period. Two sections of the New Testament describe the events of these 7 years worldwide tribulation period. Read Matthew 24 and Revelation 6-16. These prophetic details indicate how left behind people worldwide will suffer during this frightening time.
The suffering and death that will fall on the rebellious nations during the great tribulation period will be horrible. Millions upon millions of rebellious people worldwide will die in the terrible outpouring of God’s wrath. However, due to demonic possession, the majority of rebellious people who are still alive will not repent. “…and people bit their tongues because of their pains, and they cursed the God of heaven for their pains and sores. But they did not turn from their evil ways.” (Revelation 16:10-11).
During the 7 years worldwide tribulation period, there will be a great multitude of Gentiles (Unbelievers) who will repent from their sins and accept Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. They and the left behind lukewarm believers will come to heaven as great tribulation saints due to their martyrdom by Antichrist and his satanic agents. Apostle John refers to them as a great multitude which no one could number from every race, tribes, nations and languages (Revelation 7:9-17).
There are two purposes for the 7 years worldwide tribulation period. The first will be the divine punishment of the rebellious nations and rebellious unbelievers worldwide. The second will be divine arrangement to bring Israel to the place where this Biblical nation can be restored to the position of spiritual favor she once held in God’s eyes. Israel will suffer intensely during the great tribulation period. This is the “time of Jacob’s trouble” prophesied by Prophet Jeremiah: “Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.” (Jeremiah 30:7). The Jews will be greatly hit by the terror of the great tribulation period. Prophet Zechariah prophesied that two-thirds of all Jews will die during this awful period (Zechariah 13:8-9) but the suffering will bring Israel to national repentance. The remnant will collectively accept Lord Jesus Christ as the true Messiah and sovereign King. Hallelujah!
Prophet Ezekiel prophesied Israel’s conversion: “I (Jesus Christ) will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries and bring you into your land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes and you will keep My judgments and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people and I will be your God.” (Ezekiel 36:24-28).
Biblical descriptions of Israel’s restoration are also prophesied in Ezekiel 37 (the valley of dry bones) and Zechariah 12:10-11. “Then they (the Jewish inhabitants of Jerusalem) will look on Me (Jesus Christ) whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son.” (Zechariah 12:10). The spiritual restoration of Israel as a Messianic nation will take place at the return of Lord Jesus Christ to Earth at the end of the 7 years worldwide tribulation period (Zechariah 14:3-5). When Lord Jesus Christ returns to rescue the Jews (Zechariah 14:3-5) from being annihilated by Antichrist, they will nationally accept Lord Jesus Christ as their Messiah and Savior, even though individually a large number of Jews will already have been converted (Revelation 7:1-8). It will be wonderful that after hundreds of generations of hard-hearted disbelief, the people of Israel will finally trust in Lord Jesus Christ as their true Messiah. In terrible agony, inflicted by Antichrist, the Jews will turn in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ.
As the 7 years worldwide tribulation period draws to a close, the Earth will be in turmoil. Millions of rebellious people will have died in wars and terrible natural disasters. Antichrist’s hatred of God will focus on the Jews as the 7 years worldwide tribulation period begins to wind up. Opposed from the North and East (Daniel 11:44-45), Antichrist will march his armies into Palestine in preparation for a vast military showdown. Evil spirits will draw rebellious nations together for a final battle on the plains of Megiddo (Revelation 16:12-16). “Then the spirits (evil) brought the kings together in the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.” (Revelation 16:16). The armies assembled in Palestine will be made up of satanic blood thirsty men who have resisted God throughout the 7 years worldwide tribulation period. Both sides – Antichrist and his opponents – will hate the Jewish people. They will engage in a fierce battle at Armageddon. The fighting will reach Jerusalem and the Jews living there will suffer horribly (Zechariah 14:1-2). A sense of despair will sweep over the Jews as the armies of Antichrist attack them.
Suddenly, when all seems hopeless, the scene will change. Lord Jesus Christ will appear in all His glory and descend to the Mount of Olives. When His feet touch it, the mountain will split in half, forming a vast new valley stretching from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean sea (Zechariah 14:3-9). The Jewish believers will be given superhuman strength to fight their enemies (Zechariah 12:6-9). God will send a plague on the enemy soldiers (Zechariah 14:12-15) and panic will grip the foreign troops, causing them to attack one another (Zechariah 14:13).
In Revelation 19:11-21, Apostle John provides us with a beautiful portrait of the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ to the Earth on His majestic white horse with the heavenly saints also on white horses. King Jesus Christ is depicted astride his royal white horse. His eyes blazing.
Antichrist will rally the armies of Earth to attack Lord Jesus Christ and the heavenly saints but they will be crushed in great defeat. Israel will be rescued and the rebellious armies of Antichrist will be totally slain. Antichrist and False Prophet will be thrown alive into the horrible lake of fire and sulphur (Revelation 19:20).
Satan will be bound by a powerful Angel of God and confined in the fiery bottomless pit where he will remain for 1,000 years and later thrown into the horrible lake of fire and sulphur (Revelation 20:1-10).
The victorious King of kings and Lord of lords (Jesus Christ) will ascend His glorious throne in Jerusalem to rule the whole world in peace for 1,000 years (Revelation 20:4). King Jesus Christ will rule over the entire Earth in 1,000 years reign of peace, prosperity and righteousness, which we call the Millennial Reign of Christ (Revelation 20:4-6). King Jesus Christ will fulfill His prophesied rule (Luke 1:32-33). The Raptured and resurrected saints will reign with King Jesus Christ (Revelation 20:4-6). When King Jesus Christ rules in the Millennial kingdom, His love, justice, mercy, righteousness and peace will be found throughout the Earth. The people of the kingdom will reflect the characteristics of King Jesus Christ and during this golden age, the Earth will be what God intended it to be (Isaiah 2:4, 11:6-8, 30: 23-26, 35:5-6, 65:19-22; Micah 4:4; Jeremiah 23:5-6; Zechariah 8:4-5; Ezekiel 47:9-12).
From what you have read so far, it is now obvious that the “Church age” will come to a distinct end on glorious Rapture day and will be followed by the “day of God’s wrath” (the unfulfilled worldwide tribulation period of 7 years – Daniel 9:27). Rapture ready born again Christians (“the bride of Christ”) will not go through the 7 years worldwide tribulation period because it is not for us due to the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ. “Because you have kept My command to endure, I (Jesus Christ) will also keep you safe from the time of trouble (the worldwide tribulation period of 7 years) which is coming upon the world to test all the people on earth.” (Revelation 3:10).
Lord Jesus Christ will deliver us on glorious Rapture day from the wrath that is coming to the Earth (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10. “The bride of Christ” is not appointed to wrath (7 years worldwide tribulation period) but to salvation or deliverance. “For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9). Lord Jesus Christ alluded to our merciful escape from the coming day of wrath that shall try the whole Earth. “Watch therefore and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass and to stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21:36).
The 7 years worldwide tribulation period is not for “the bride of Christ” (Rapture ready born again Christians). Instead, it is for Israel to fulfill prophecy and for the Gentiles (Unbelievers) to be punished if they refuse to repent and accept the great salvation of Lord Jesus Christ. To understand end times prophecy, you must distinguish between the “Church,” Israel and the Gentiles. The “Church” is really made up of both believing Jews and converted Gentiles who have spiritually experienced the “born again” (John 3:3-16) relationship with Lord Jesus Christ by faith. They have entered into the kingdom of Lord Jesus Christ spiritually by faith, awaiting the day when they will enter His physical kingdom by His glory and power at His glorious second coming to Earth. They are not appointed to wrath (7 years worldwide tribulation period) which is really for unbelieving Jews and rebellious Gentiles.
The glorious Rapture will be sudden and unexpected! Rapture ready born again Christians are looking for Lord Jesus Christ and perpetually ready for His glorious appearance in the sky on glorious Rapture day. They are spiritually prepared for Lord Jesus Christ like an expectant “bride” awaiting the coming of her Groom (Jesus Christ). “The bride of Christ” is perpetually ready for the glorious Rapture. However, lukewarm/cold Christians who live worldly, carnal lives show by their deeds that they have little or no anticipation for the glorious appearance of Lord Jesus Christ on Rapture day. Some of them did not want Jesus Christ to come in their life time while some want Jesus Christ to delay His coming perpetually. They will regret their actions when they are left behind on glorious Rapture day and experience the agonies of the 7 years worldwide tribulation period.
Deliverance of “the bride of Christ” from the world’s greatest period of wrath (7 years worldwide tribulation period) is a gift of Lord Jesus Christ for His devoted Rapture ready born again Christians. Jesus Christ loves us because He is our anticipated “Groom.” Therefore, it is like the perfect “Groom” (Jesus Christ) to manifest His love by rapturing His devoted “bride” (Rapture ready born again Christians) before the period of wrath just because He loves her. The present distress worldwide, calamities and violent Islamic terrorism (ISIS, Boko Haram, Al-Shabaab, Al-Qaeda, etc.) being experienced in some countries are “birth pains” prior to our merciful deliverance on glorious Rapture day. We must not give up our faith in Lord Jesus Christ. The love of Jesus Christ for “the bride of Christ” is sufficient to sustain our “blessed hope” of being raptured on glorious Rapture day.
The Millennial Kingdom Reign Of King Jesus Christ: 1,000 Years Of Global Peace And Righteousness.
The revelation of Lord Jesus Christ at His second coming to Earth is painted graphically in Revelation 19:11-16:
“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice He judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on His head are many crowns. He has a name written on Him that no one knows but He Himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and His name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following Him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of His mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron scepter. He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On His robe and on His thigh He has this name written:
King of kings and Lord of lords.”
There is no similarity whatever between the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ to Earth and coming in the air at the glorious Rapture:
“Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep (die), but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52). “For the Lord Himself (Jesus Christ) will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
At the glorious Rapture, there is no record that Lord Jesus Christ ever judges the Earth or that His purpose is to end the times of the Gentiles. During the glorious Rapture, Lord Jesus Christ will remain in the air, “catch up” (Harpazo: Rapture) resurrected believers and rapture ready believers that are alive and then take them to heavenly New Jerusalem where they will remain throughout the duration of the seven years worldwide tribulation on Earth. Therefore, people must be perpetually prepared for the glorious Rapture. Rapture (“Harpazo”) is the catching away of the saints, which will happen within seconds and any moment very soon (1 Corinthians 15:51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). It is the first event of the end time advent when the Angels of God will blow the trumpets. Only born again Christians who are waiting for it, expecting it and preparing for it will become raptured by God’s grace.
The simple clarification for self-examination here is that if you are thinking, waiting, preparing or expecting prosperity, miracle or anything more than Rapture, you will not make the Rapture. Only those who earnestly, eagerly wait and prepare for His (Jesus Christ) appearance more than anything else will eventually make it, just like the 5 wise virgins. Read Matthew 25. Rapture is a glorious event of all generations. It is going to be splendid, wonderful and rewarding for the saints more than any event in the history of the world. Then it will leave behind gloom, doom and destructive reign of the Antichrist (mark of the Beast: RFID chip/human barcode: 666) during the great tribulation period for people who will miss the glorious Rapture. “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, nor ever shall be.” (Matthew 24:21).
In Revelation 19:11-16, the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ is pictured in contrast to His first coming. In His first coming to Earth, Lord Jesus Christ came quietly as a Man to live a humble life on Earth, became crucified on the Cross for our redemption and resurrected after three days in the tomb. Later, He ascended back to heaven. In His second coming to Earth, Lord Jesus Christ will come in His great glory accompanied by the heavenly Saints and heavenly Angels. At the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ to Earth, there is no “catching up” of the church (Bride of Christ) and taking it out of the world as is true of the glorious Rapture. In the Second Coming, the heavenly Saints and Angels will accompany Lord Jesus Christ in His return and will remain in the earthly sphere to share in the Millennial kingdom reign that follows. At His second coming, Lord Jesus Christ will destroy the armies of the world that were gathered to conquer the Holy Land (Jerusalem). It is a terrible picture of divine judgment upon a wicked world that rejected Lord Jesus Christ. The world leader described as the Beast (Antichrist) and the False Prophet associated with him will be cast alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur (Revelation 19:20).
Immediately after Lord Jesus Christ returns to Earth and judges those who wickedly oppose Him, Satan will be rendered inactive for the first time, as Revelation 20:1-3 states: “I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss (bottomless pit) and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.”
Distinction must be made in the interpretation of this passage between what Apostle John saw and what he was told. He saw what appeared to be Satan, described here also as the dragon, the serpent, and the devil. John saw him thrown into the abyss (bottomless pit) and saw the abyss locked and sealed, but he could not understand why unless he was told. God had to reveal that Satan would be bound for a thousand years and that he would not be able to deceive the nations during that 1,000 years period. It also was revealed that at the end of the thousand years, Satan would be set free for a short time (Revelation 20:3). This future prophecy is certainly not fulfilled in the present age because the present age is not the Millennium period and Satan is not bound in the present age. In fact, Scripture makes it clear, as in 1 Peter 5:8, that “your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” In the present age while Satan is limited by God, he is not bound or inactive and is deceiving millions of people worldwide. Therefore, in Revelation 20, Satan’s binding is the logical result of Christ’s coming to judge the world, restore righteousness, and install His Millennial kingdom in which Satan will be inactive for the entire period of the thousand years!
In connection with the events following the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ, Apostle John also saw the resurrection of those who had been martyred in the Great Tribulation period preceding the Second Coming. John writes: “I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years. (Revelation 20:4- 6).”
It is significant that the resurrection of the tribulation saints, who died during the great Tribulation period before the Second Coming, is accomplished in anticipation that they would in their resurrected life reign with King Jesus Christ for 1,000 years. Therefore, the Second Coming of Lord Jesus Christ is Pre-Millennial, that is, it occurs before the thousand years. This is required by the resurrection of the martyred saints killed in the great tribulation period. In essence, the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ results in the establishment of the Millennial kingdom. According to Revelation 20:4- 6, the martyred (murdered) people of the great tribulation period are resurrected and subsequently reign for 1,000 years with King Jesus Christ.
The false doctrine that there is one general resurrection of all people is also repudiated here because Revelation 20:5 states that the resurrection of the martyred dead is a selected resurrection and that the rest of the dead, that is, the wicked, will not be raised until after the thousand years. This is confirmed in the passage that follows, as described in Revelation 20:7-10, when the devil is released after the thousand years, begins to deceive the nations, and gains a large following, which surrounds Jerusalem and attempts to conquer it. Fire will come down from heaven and devour them, and Satan himself will be cast into the lake of burning sulfur where he will be tormented forever and ever. The resurrection and judgment of the wicked dead people will follow at the great white throne judgment of God (Revelation 20:11-15). At the beginning of the Millennial kingdom, all the righteous people have been raised from the dead, and those living, both Gentiles and Jews, who survived the great Tribulation period will enter the Millennium in their natural bodies and will perform natural functions in that Millennial kingdom. Only those who are wicked will still be in the grave and not resurrected during the Millennial kingdom period.
Indeed, the Millennium (also known as the Millennial Kingdom) is the 1,000 years reign of King Jesus Christ on Earth after the great Tribulation period and before the great white throne judgment of God (Revelation 20:11-15). Lord Jesus Christ will reign as king over Israel as well as all the nations of the world (Isaiah 2:4; 42:1). The world will live in peace (Isaiah 11:6–9; 32:18), Satan will be bound for 1,000 years (Revelation 20:1–3) and everyone will worship God (Isaiah 2:2–3). The purpose of the 1,000-years reign of King Jesus Christ is to fulfill promises God made to the world that cannot be fulfilled while Satan is free and human beings have political authority. Some of these promises, called covenants, were given specifically to Israel. Others were given to Lord Jesus Christ, the nations of the world and creation of God. All of these will be fulfilled during the 1,000 years reign of King Jesus Christ on Earth.
Revelation 20:1-10 says, “And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.”
After the glorious Rapture of the Church (“Bride of Christ”), after the seven years worldwide tribulation period, and after the second coming to Earth, Lord Jesus Christ will reign in His Millennial kingdom. The coming literal kingdom of King Jesus Christ to this Earth will be the most blessed time this world has known since the Garden of Eden. Many Edenic features will characterize this Millennial kingdom. All the unrepentant rebels who rebelled against God and Lord Jesus Christ during the great Tribulation period will be gone. Antichrist and the False Prophet will be languishing in the terrible lake of fire and sulfur. Satan will be bound for 1,000 years in the fiery bottomless pit so he cannot tempt people during the Millennial kingdom period. This will enable King Jesus Christ to enforce His worldwide 1,000 years reign of peace and righteousness. Together with His holy Angels, King Jesus Christ will have the glorified Saints (Raptured and Resurrected Saints) in their new glorified bodies to help Him enforce His worldwide 1,000 years reign of peace and righteousness. It will be illegal for potential law breakers, criminals and other people who may want to corrupt society to ply their evil trades in the Millennial kingdom. Therefore, the coming Millennial kingdom will be a time of unprecedented prosperity, when everyone will have his or her home. The curse on the Earth will be lifted by King Jesus Christ and the ground will bear incredible harvests. Cheating and war will be non-existent, so people will enjoy the fruits of their labors.
Immortality: Glorified Saint With A Glorified Body. Glorious Rapture is a blessed hope of dedicated Rapture watchers worldwide. As a Raptured or Resurrected Saint, your immortal body will be like the glorified body of our Lord Jesus Christ at His resurrection and in which He lives today. “..But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He really is. Everyone who has this hope in Christ keeps himself pure, just as Christ is pure (1 John 3:1-3).” A vital connection between us (glorified Saints) and Lord Jesus Christ will endure for eternity. In the Millennial kingdom period and for eternity, you will live forever in a real glorified body, eat, drink, interact with Lord Jesus Christ and other glorified Saints in heavenly New Jerusalem, earthly Jerusalem and other parts of the world.
When will our glorious transformation into glorified Saints occur? It will occur on glorious Rapture day when Lord Jesus Christ will return in the air to take all of His own, living and dead, to be with Him in heavenly New Jerusalem. The Rapture event will take place before the terrible outpouring of God’s wrath on unbelieving Jews and Gentiles (Unbelievers) during the 7 years worldwide tribulation period. On glorious Rapture day, the dead in Christ will rise first and be given new, glorified bodies. Living believers will follow, and their bodies will be transformed gloriously. Both groups will meet the Lord Jesus Christ in the air. The glorious Rapture event will occur suddenly!
“Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep (die), but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For what is mortal must be changed into what is immortal; what will die must be changed into what cannot die.” (1 Corinthians 15:51-53). “For the Lord Himself (Jesus Christ) will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
What will our glorified bodies look like? The scriptural answers to this question are that our glorified bodies will be:
- Flesh and bone, but dramatically changed (Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:50).
- Like Lord Jesus Christ’s resurrected body (1 Corinthians 15:49; Philippians 3:21; 1 John 3:2).
- Incorruptible (1 Corinthians 15:42, 50).
- Awe- inspiring (1 Corinthians 15:43).
- Having new abilities (1 Corinthians 15:43).
- Suited for heaven and eternal living (1 Corinthians 15:47- 49).
- Spiritual (1 Corinthians 15:44).
The spiritual aspect of our glorified bodies is indicating the imperishable and perfect nature of our new immortal bodies. Since we have transformed from mortality into immortality, this means that we will be able to stand in the presence of and relate to Almighty God (Jehovah) who is a glorious Spiritual Being. Our glorified bodies have been designed by our Lord Jesus Christ for eternal life in heaven (New Jerusalem) for eternity! Eternity has no end. We will live in our glorious heavenly mansions forever (John 14:1-4). Yes, we will enjoy blissful existence during the Millennial kingdom period and for eternity in our glorified bodies. Hallelujah!
As a glorified Saint, your immortal body and clothes will always glow gloriously forever (Luke 9:28-36). Your glorified body and brain will possess supernatural powers. Your supernatural brain will be better than the most sophisticated computer or Smartphone in the world. You won’t need iPhone or Skype to communicate or vehicles to go from one place to another. Just desiring any information will bring it to your mind! You can also read the thought of another person near you or far away from you. If you feel like, you can use any sophisticated computer or Smart-phone that will be available during the Millennial kingdom period. There will be new and sophisticated technological inventions during the Millennium due to our superior knowledge. Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.
As a glorified Saint, distance will never be a barrier for you for eternity. Just thinking about going somewhere will get you there! However, if you feel like, you can use any vehicle, train, ship or an airplane. Just like our Lord Jesus Christ, you can walk on top of any river, lake or sea without sinking (John 6:16-21). In reality, you can also fly anywhere you want to go at the speed of light better than the science fiction character: “Superman.” As a glorified Saint, you can appear anywhere you want to go suddenly! Alternatively, you can also disappear suddenly! (Luke 24:13-49). Yes, as a glorified Saint, you will possess super-human abilities. This is not a science fiction or genetics engineering. It is a reality! As glorified Saints with glorified bodies, we have been blessed with our eternal inheritance through the special grace of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:35-58).
For eternity, all the things you can’t do in your mortal body, you will be able to do them as an immortal glorified Saint. You will never get tired or fall sick for eternity! You will have a youngish and radiant look forever! All glorified Saints will look young and handsome or beautiful forever! No aging wrinkles on your face for eternity! Your eye- sight will be perfect forever, no need for reading glasses again. No terminal disease or ailment in your glorified body forever! You can never die! You can’t die or become injured if you fall down from any great height. Gun-shot or dangerous weapons can’t kill you. No poison can kill you. Vehicle accident, car-crash or plane crash can’t kill you. If you are swimming in the swimming pool, river, lake or sea, you can go down and breathe under water! Yes, as a glorified Saint with a glorified body, you will be like a “Superman” or “Superwoman” forever! Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.
In reality, you will be able to do what you can only imagine presently. Super-heroes in Science fiction films are fictional characters but glorified Saints with super-human abilities will become a reality during the Millennium and for eternity! You will remain strong and energetic forever! You can walk through closed doors or wall (John 20:19-29). You can float or fly in the air like a bird. If you feel like, you can ascend into the sky through the ceiling and roof of any building without causing any structural damage to the building. You can traverse from earthly Jerusalem or any part of the world to heavenly New Jerusalem at will (Luke 24: 50-52; Acts 1:6-11). You can also get to any part of the world supernaturally within a twinkle of an eye! As a glorified Saint, there is no limitation for you for eternity! Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.
Lord Jesus Christ is the King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:16). Therefore, as a King or Queen, you will reign with the King of kings (Lord Jesus Christ) throughout the 1,000 years reign of our Great King Jesus Christ (Revelation 20:4). During the Millennial kingdom period, you will also interact with mortal people you are ruling over in any part of the world. The part of the world where you will rule and your responsibilities during the Millennial kingdom period will be determined by King Jesus Christ. You will report regularly to King Jesus Christ at Jerusalem to brief Him about the progress of your administration. Because we are saved “by grace… through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9), many Christians think there is little or no call on their life presently to serve our Lord Jesus Christ. Consequently, they accept the salvation of Lord Jesus Christ as a gift and do nothing to advance His kingdom afterward. Unfortunately, they do not read on to the following verse: “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10). By reading this passage, the Lord Jesus Christ expects His children to work for Him after they have been given salvation.
In fact, we will be rewarded in the Millennial kingdom period in direct proportion to the way we have served the Lord Jesus Christ presently (Matthew 20:1-16, 25:14-30; Luke 19:11-27). Therefore, we are expected, once saved, to serve our Lord Jesus Christ dedicatedly. Your dedicated service for the Lord Jesus Christ can be anything done in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, or for His glory. It could be soul winning, worshiping Him dedicatedly, or even giving a “cup of cold water” in His name (Matthew 10:40-42).
The Lord Jesus Christ will reward us according to our faithfulness, talent and time spent in serving Him selflessly. Talent times our productive sharing of the gospel (Evangelism) times the time we had after our salvation to labor for Lord Jesus Christ will equal our eternal reward. The record of our dedicated service is kept by Lord Jesus Christ, who knows what ability we have to serve Him, and will hold us accountable for how we use our talents and time for service. Lord Jesus Christ is a just God and He will treat each believer according to his/her works, based on his/her ability (Matthew 6:19-21). In the mercy of Lord Jesus Christ, He has not only given us salvation totally free, but He also gives us an opportunity to invest a portion of our “treasure” (our life) in eternal rewards. The Lord Jesus Christ is not interested in having us serve Him faithfully for just a few years, but rather for our entire lifetime. “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 15:58).
Our reward is in heaven for everything we do on Earth for Christ sake. Our treasure is in heaven. Our continuous labor presently for our Lord Jesus Christ is being recorded always by the holy Angels. Our selfless service for our Lord Jesus Christ will be bountifully rewarded in heaven at the Judgment seat of Christ (Romans 14:10-12; 2 Corinthians 5:10). You will not take to heaven on glorious Rapture day anything you have acquired on this sinful Earth. You will only ascend to heaven on glorious Rapture day as a glorious Saint in your glorious white garment of righteousness (Revelation 19: 8, 14). Therefore, make sure you utilize your divine calling, time, talents and God given resources to evangelize zealously and win many souls for Lord Jesus Christ in this grace period while awaiting the glorious Rapture.
Don’t be a spectator believer. Our eternal treasures and rewards are reserved for us in heavenly New Jerusalem, kept safe for us by our Lord Jesus Christ. As profitable servants of Jesus Christ, we will be bountifully rewarded at the Judgment Seat of Christ when we get to heaven on glorious Rapture day. Don’t be an unprofitable servant who will have no eternal rewards in heaven. The holy Angels of God are daily recording everything we are doing on Earth for the sake of the gospel of Jesus Christ and any help we render for the poor and needy.
Romans 14:10-12 says, “For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat…so then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.” Second Corinthians 5:10 tells us, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” In the context, it is clear that both scriptures are referring to born again Christians, not unbelievers. The Judgment Seat of Christ, therefore, involves born again believers giving an account of their lives to our Lord Jesus Christ. The Judgment Seat of Christ does not determine salvation; that was determined by Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf (1 John 2:2) and our faith in Him (John 3:16). All of our sins are forgiven and we will never be condemned for them (Romans 8:1). We should not look at the Judgment Seat of Christ as God judging our sins, but rather as Lord Jesus Christ rewarding us for our lives. Yes, as the Bible says, we will have to give an account of ourselves. This is going to be the primary focus of the heavenly Judgment Seat of Christ after glorious Rapture.
At the Heavenly “Bema” or Judgment Seat Of Christ after the glorious Rapture, all dedicated Rapture watchers will get the crown of righteousness from Lord Jesus Christ because they are perpetually ready for His glorious appearance in the sky. Since they are dedicated Rapture watchers, the crown of righteousness will be the reward for perpetual watchfulness. At the Judgment Seat of Christ in heaven after the glorious Rapture, there is a crown of righteousness that Lord Jesus Christ will place on the heads of all dedicated Rapture watchers because they eagerly love, watch and await His glorious appearance in the sky (2 Timothy 4:7-8).
There will also be awarded the crown of rejoicing for active soul-winners for Lord Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 2:19-20). There will also be an incorruptible crown for overcoming the old nature (1 Corinthians 9:25-27). There will also be a crown of life for enduring persecution and trials while on Earth (James 1:12; Revelation 2:10). Additionally, there will be a crown of glory for shepherding the flock of Christ (1 Peter 5:4). The crown of glory is a special crown that will be awarded by Lord Jesus Christ to dedicated men/women of God who share or teaches the “Word of God (Holy Bible)” regularly with people in the churches and everywhere both online/offline. They could be Evangelists, Ministers, Pastors, Deacons, Sunday school teachers, Child Evangelism teachers or anyone who teaches the “Word of God” faithfully to others. Such individuals will be adequately rewarded by Lord Jesus Christ for their dedication and commitment to sharing the eternal Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ and encouraging the faith of other believers-in-Christ. Lord Jesus Christ is the “Word of God” (John 1:1-5). By God’s grace, you will be entitled to any of these glorious crowns in heaven as a raptured Saint at the heavenly Judgment Seat of Christ after the glorious Rapture.
At the Judgment Seat of Christ, believers are rewarded based on how faithfully they served Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 9:4-27; 2 Timothy 2:5). Some of the things we might be judged on are how well we obeyed the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), how victorious we were over sin (Romans 6:1-4) and how well we controlled our tongues (James 3:1-9). The Bible speaks of believers receiving crowns for different things based on how faithfully they served Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 9:4-27; 2 Timothy 2:5). The various crowns are described in 2 Timothy 2:5, 2 Timothy 4:8, James 1:12, 1 Peter 5:4 and Revelation 2:10. James 1:12 is a good summary of how we should think about the Judgment Seat of Christ: “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him.”
After glorious Rapture, at the heavenly judgment seat of Christ, raptured believers whose faithful service provides them with genuine rewards that survive the fire test will receive many crowns from Lord Jesus Christ. Since the Bible tells us that we will reign with Lord Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 2:12) when He comes to reign in His Millennial kingdom, it is obvious what these crowns signify, for crowns are for Rulers. That is compatible with His (Lord Jesus Christ) parable of the pounds, in which He promised to give rewards according to service by saying, “I will make you ruler over ten cities.” (Luke 19:11-27). That may be the reason the heavenly judgment seat of Christ will occur before the Millennial kingdom- so that glorified Saints can be assigned to opportunities of service according to the faithful use of their talents in directly advancing Christ’s spiritual kingdom in this present life.
According to 1 Corinthians 3:12-13, some of our heavenly treasure (“good works”) will be “gold, silver, or precious jewels,” meaning that they will survive the fire test and the believer will receive a reward. What you should also see in this passage is that “the wood, hay and stubble” (bad works) do not survive the fire test and the believer suffers loss of reward– not loss of salvation. The reason “bad works” don’t qualify to abide the fire test and earn a reward is because they have not been done with the right motive. To the eyes of people, they may look like silver, gold and precious stones, but in reality before Lord Jesus Christ, they are nothing but wood, hay and stubble. The reality of the fire test will reveal what sort it is, whether good or bad. The judgment seat of Christ will reveal all truth because the works mentioned in 1 Corinthians 3 evidently all looked alike until after the fire “tested every man’s work what sort it was.” There would be no purpose in fire testing straw or wood or stubble– unless they looked the same as gold, silver or jewels. It is the holy test of fire that determines whether the “works” were really “good or bad.”
To the church, Pastor or fellow Christians, a person’s “Christian service” may look like “good works,” but his or her “evil motive” or “hidden counsels” will be revealed by Lord Jesus Christ at this heavenly judgment seat of Christ, and the believer will lose his or her reward because his or her motive was one of self-seeking or hypocrisy. Therefore, a believer can lose his or her crown, receive less than a full reward, and “suffer loss’ even when expecting rewards. Some of the things that could cause a loss of reward are unconfessed sin, good things done with an evil motive, and hidden counsels of the heart that are displeasing to Lord Jesus Christ. In essence, God’s work should be done in God’s way- with a pure heart and a desire to glorify Lord Jesus Christ, or else there will be no reward, or at least a diminished reward.
Lord Jesus Christ will spit cold/lukewarm Christians out of His mouth (Revelation 3:14-22). Indeed, cold/lukewarm Christians, Rapture scoffers and unbelievers will be left behind on Rapture day. Therefore, be hot and zealous for Jesus Christ henceforth. Wake up from spiritual slumber! “I-don’t-care” attitude must stop now! Apathy for soul winning and contempt for dedicated soul winners must stop now! Attachment to mundane, worldly things must stop now! Don’t love the world too much like unbelievers. Always be heaven-minded. Live everyday from now as if it may be your last day on Earth. Have daily Rapture expectation. This will enable you to be perpetually ready for glorious Rapture and the Millennial kingdom period. You can’t know Rapture day or hour but it is imminent! It will happen when you are not expecting it. Suddenly and unexpectedly! Scoffing about Rapture or mocking dedicated Rapture watchers is not a good attitude. Stop your scoffing now! Whether you believe it or not, glorious Rapture is imminent! Be ready always!
The warning signs of imminent Rapture are now occurring worldwide. You are aware of these regular warning signs of imminent Rapture in the sky and in every part of the Earth. We can’t bury our heads in the sand like an Ostrich, pretending as if nothing is happening. It is Rapture scoffers, lukewarm/cold believers as well as unbelievers who are always opposing dedicated Rapture watchers and active soul winners. It is because they are so much in love with the world. Be perpetually ready for glorious Rapture and the Millennial kingdom reign of King Jesus Christ. Glorious Rapture is a true blessed hope of dedicated Rapture watchers and active soul winners worldwide.
In this grace period, global Evangelism should be urgently supported by all and sundry. Apathy and cold indifference must stop now! It is a satanic manipulation to hinder massive soul winning online and offline for our Lord Jesus Christ. Numerous lost souls are perishing daily worldwide. According to many true divine revelations from our Lord Jesus Christ, there are billions of doomed souls being tormented in eternal burning hell. On the great judgment day, they will be cast into the eternal lake of fire and sulfur (Revelation 20:11-15). We should stop this great calamity urgently. Our blessed and long-anticipated departure for heavenly New Jerusalem on glorious Rapture day is at the door! We should try to win as many souls as possible before the imminent Rapture day.
According to many divine revelations from our Lord Jesus Christ, many people worldwide will be left behind on Rapture day due to their lukewarm, sinful condition and not being ready always for Rapture. Therefore, we should try to increase the number of people worldwide who will become raptured on imminent Rapture day by the great mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ. We must urgently create continuous awareness about the imminent glorious Rapture both online and offline. Don’t be ashamed to be an active soul winner and dedicated Rapture watcher. We must urgently intensify our soul winning efforts both online and offline.
Henceforth, everything you are doing for Lord Jesus Christ should be done because you love Him and want to glorify Him. This must always be your motive in your continuous selfless service for our Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t serve because you want to get a reward or commendation from people, serve dedicatedly because you love Lord Jesus Christ and want to glorify Him. You will get your eternal rewards by God’s grace. During the thousand years of the reign of King Jesus Christ, you will serve Him during that period in direct proportion to the way you have faithfully served Him during this present time on Earth. If you have been a spectator Christian in this life, you will be one in the Millennial kingdom period. Your eternal rewards earned from your selfless service in this present life will determine your opportunity to serve King Jesus Christ for 1,000 years! In this grace period before glorious Rapture, it is entirely up to you to make the right decision now! Wake up from lukewarm, spiritual slumber! Time is running out! Prepare and be ready always for the glorious Rapture and Millennial reign of King Jesus Christ on Earth.
What Will Happen During The Millennial Kingdom Of King Jesus Christ?
The Reason For The 1,000 Years Reign Of King Jesus Christ. The Millennial kingdom is a period of time when King Jesus Christ will reign over all the Earth. The purpose of the 1,000 years reign is to allow for the fulfillment of several promises God made with Israel, Lord Jesus Christ, the Gentiles and creation. Therefore, the main purpose of Lord Jesus’ 1,000 years reign is to fulfill the prophecies given to Israel and the promises made by God to Lord Jesus Christ, the nations and the whole Earth. God’s covenants were voluntary and eternal. He promised He would bless Israel and restore the world in specific ways, and He will accomplish His covenants through the 1,000 years reign of King Jesus Christ on Earth.
Promises To Israel. Throughout Israel’s history, God has made several promises, or covenants, promising to bless Israel in specific ways. Some of these covenants have yet to be fulfilled. The Palestinian Covenant or the Land Covenant (Genesis 15:18-20; Numbers 34:1-12; Deuteronomy 30:1-10) outlines the exact borders Israel will possess for eternity; however, the nation of Israel has yet to encompass these specific boundaries. The Davidic Covenant (2 Samuel 7) is the promise that God made to David that David’s heir would sit on the throne of Israel forever. Lord Jesus Christ is that heir, but He has yet to take His physical, political birthright. The New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31-34) outlines the promise that Israel as a nation will return to God and worship their Messiah: Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 9-11).
God has already fulfilled the personal aspects of the Abrahamic Covenant. Abraham went to the Promised Land (Canaan), he had many descendants, and he was the forefather of many nations. Several hundred years after Abraham, Joshua led the Israelites to claim ownership of the Promised Land (Canaan). However, Israel has never possessed the specific boundaries that God promised in Genesis 15:18–20 and Numbers 34:1-12. Not even Solomon ruled over this particular area (1 Kings 4:21–24). Although he did reign from the River of Egypt to the Euphrates, he did not hold the area from Mount Hor to Hazarenan (Numbers 34:7–9)—into present-day Lebanon and Syria. In addition, the covenant God made with Abraham was that he and his descendants would have the land for eternity (Genesis 13:15; 17:8; Ezekiel 16:60). The current Israeli state may be a step in this direction, but they still do not possess the boundaries God laid out.
Concerning the Davidic Covenant (2 Samuel 7), God’s covenant with David was that his line would never die out and that David’s heir would sit on the throne of Israel forever (2 Samuel 7:16). Biblical scholars agree that Lord Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of this covenant—one of the reasons His genealogy is given for both His step-father (Matthew 1:1–17) and His mother (Luke 3:23–38). The Jews understood this when they laid down palm branches and their cloaks as Lord Jesus Christ rode into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1–17). They expected Him to be a military/political leader that would liberate them from the Romans and make Israel a great nation again. However, they didn’t understand the nature of Jesus’ work at the time was for the New Covenant, not the Davidic Covenant. The 1,000 years reign will be the beginning of Lord Jesus’ eternal reign over Israel and the Earth (Revelation 20:4, 6).
Pertaining to the New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31-34), or the work of the New Covenant—Jesus’ death and resurrection to reconcile hearts to God—has been accomplished. However, we have not yet seen the complete fulfillment. Jeremiah 31:33 says, “But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” Ezekiel 36:28 gives more specifics: “You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, and you shall be my people, and I will be your God.” Isaiah 59:20–21 explains that this covenant is possible because of the Redeemer, and the reconciliation He provides will last forever. This covenant means that Israel as a nation will eventually worship their Messiah (Lord Jesus Christ). The Old Testament prophets who spoke of this covenant, including Isaiah, Jeremiah, Hosea, and Ezekiel, all wrote that it will be fulfilled in the future. From their time on, Israel has yet to be an independent nation that worshiped its Messiah (Romans 9-11). They will be in the 1,000 years reign of King Jesus Christ. In essence, all the covenants of God with Israel will be fully fulfilled during the 1,000 years reign of King Jesus Christ on Earth.
Promises To Lord Jesus Christ. In Psalm 110, David records the promises that God (“The Lord“) made to Jesus Christ (“My Lord“). God invites Lord Jesus Christ to sit at His right hand until God makes Jesus’ enemies a footstool. Lord Jesus Christ will rule over, judge, and shatter His enemies while His loyal people will worship Him freely (Psalm 100). This combination of judging enemies and being worshiped by the faithful cannot happen simultaneously in the eternal heaven, because in heaven there will be no sin or rebellion to judge. Similarly, In Daniel 7:11-14, Lord Jesus Christ is given dominion over all the people, nations, and languages before His enemies are permanently destroyed.
Promises To The Gentiles. The promise in Daniel 7:11-14 refers to Gentiles, as well. It says that Lord Jesus Christ will be given dominion over all the nations. The whole world will know God (Isaiah 11:9). In addition to Jesus’ rule over the Gentiles, His faithful followers will be given positions of authority (Luke 19:12-27; Revelation 5:10; 1 Corinthians 6:2).
Promises To Creation. Jesus’ sovereignty will extend beyond human political systems and into all of creation. The curse will be lifted (Romans 8:18-23). Animals will live in peace again (Isaiah 11:6-9, 35:9, 65:25). Fields will be productive and freed from the curse of weeds (Isaiah 32:13-15). The mortals who survived the great Tribulation period and populate the Earth during the 1,000 years kingdom reign of King Jesus Christ will be freed from disease (Isaiah 33:24, 35:5-6,61:1-2; Ezekiel 34:16).
During the Millennial period, even though there is peace throughout the world, even though the worship of God is the norm for all nations, even though King Jesus Christ will reign from Jerusalem, and even though Satan is bound and cannot influence people, there will still be those who do not choose Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. This is due to the fact that when Satan is released in Revelation 20:7, the rebellious people are completely open for his deception and willing to follow him into battle against King Jesus Christ one last time. They will not be few individuals—“number is like the sand of the sea.” (Revelation 20:8). Indeed, rebellion is a deliberate action because the influence of King Jesus Christ over civilization during the Millennium and the removal of Satan are not enough to encourage rebellious people to follow God (Romans 3:11-12). Only the Holy Spirit dwelling in our hearts ensures we will choose good over evil. God cannot force people to accept the great salvation of Lord Jesus Christ. People must decide voluntarily whether they want to follow Lord Jesus Christ or Satan. Therefore, in the Millennium, rebellious people who choose to follow Satan will be doomed for eternity with Satan and his fallen angels/demons in the lake of fire and sulfur (Matthew 25:41, Revelation 20:11-15).
2 Peter 3:8-9 says, “But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” The 1,000 years reign of King Jesus Christ offers the opportunity for God to fulfill His promises to Israel, Lord Jesus Christ, the Gentiles and creation. Therefore, the wait presently offers the opportunity for us (soul winners) to reach the world for Lord Jesus Christ and teach others about His great salvation offer and the blessings of God awaiting people during the Millennial kingdom period and for eternity.
Second Coming Of Lord Jesus Christ To Earth Is A Reality. The Biblical Psalms contain a number of references to Christ’s second coming to Earth. In Psalm 2, the writer says that the Lord scoffs at those who rebel against Him. The Psalm states: “Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, “I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill.” I will proclaim the decree of the Lord: He said to me, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. You will rule them with an iron scepter; you will dash them to pieces like pottery” (Psalm 2:5-9).
The trilogy of Psalm 22, 23, and 24 gives a panoramic view of Lord Jesus Christ. Psalm 22 speaks of His work as the Good Shepherd dying on the cross for our sins (John 10:11). Psalm 23 speaks of His present care for His own as the Great Shepherd (Hebrews 13:20), interceding for them in heaven. Psalm 24 describes Lord Jesus Christ as the King of Glory, the Chief Shepherd (1 Peter 5:4), who will enter the gates of Jerusalem. Another major revelation is given in Psalm 72, revealing Christ’s Millennial reign over the whole Earth. After describing how He will judge the people, defend the afflicted, and deliver the righteous, the psalm continues: “In His days the righteous will flourish; prosperity will abound till the moon is no more. He will rule from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth. The desert tribes will bow before Him and His enemies will lick the dust. The kings of Tarshish and of distant shores will bring tribute to Him; the kings of Sheba and Seba will present Him gifts. All kings will bow down to Him and all nations will serve Him (Psalm 72:7-11). The Psalm concluded by stating that all nations will be blessed through Him and that the whole earth will be filled with His glory. (Psalm 72:17-19).
Another major passage dealing with Lord Jesus Christ in His second coming is found in Isaiah 11, where the righteous reign of King Jesus Christ and the blessings of the Millennial kingdom are revealed. Daniel 7:13-14 states that the Second Coming of Lord Jesus Christ marks the termination of the times of the Gentiles and the beginning of the reign of God’s kingdom on Earth: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into His presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and His kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.” This passage, as all others on the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ, makes clear that it refers to an event not yet fulfilled that will consummate the plan of God for the ages.
Zechariah 2:10-11 also anticipates the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and His residence in the Earth, “Shout and be glad, O Daughter of Zion. For I am coming, and I will live among you,’ declares the Lord. ‘Many nations will be joined with the Lord in that day and will become my people. I will live among you and you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me to you.” In that future day, Scripture declares that Lord Jesus Christ will claim the Holy Land (Jerusalem) as His own. Zechariah says, “The Lord will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land and will again choose Jerusalem.” (Zechariah 2:12).
A dramatic description of the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ is recorded in Zechariah 14, which describes an attack upon Jerusalem. Zechariah states, “Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.” (Zechariah 14:3-4). This prophecy makes clear that Lord Jesus Christ has not come in His second coming because the Mount of Olives is still intact, awaiting the coming of Christ.
Among the first duties of King Jesus Christ as He prepares to set up His 1,000 years reign is to sit in judgment on some groups of people. King Jesus Christ will judge three groups of people:
- Resurrected believers from before Pentecost and the resurrected martyred great tribulation saints (Daniel 12:1-3, Revelation 20:4).
- Jews who had gone through the great tribulation period and survived (Ezekiel 20:33-44). Some of them will be allowed to become citizens of the Millennial kingdom and some of them will be cast into Hades (Hell). Their destination will depend on whether they chose to accept Lord Jesus Christ or to follow Antichrist and his revolt against God and Lord Jesus Christ.
- Gentiles (Matthew 25). What King Jesus Christ will do with Gentiles who endured the great tribulation period will depend on how they behaved during those devastating years. Those who did not follow Antichrist and who showed kindness to the Jews showed their love for Lord Jesus Christ, so they will enter the Millennial kingdom. The rest will be “cast away” into Hades (Hell) either because they worshipped Antichrist or because they mistreated Jews or both.
Pertaining to the judgment of the Jews who survived the great tribulation period, Prophet Ezekiel described King Jesus Christ as a shepherd standing at the door of a sheepfold. The Jews who have trusted Lord Jesus Christ will be received into His Millennial kingdom while those who rejected Him will not (Ezekiel 20:33-44). Again, a shepherd metaphor is used to describe King Jesus Christ while judging the Gentiles who live through the great tribulation period. King Jesus Christ is pictured as separating the sheep from the goats (Matthew 25:31-46). Believers in Christ (the sheep) will be allowed to enter the Millennial kingdom while unbelievers (the goats) will die and await the great white throne judgment of God (Revelation 20:11-15).
At the battle of Armageddon, just when all seemed lost, King Jesus Christ will appear in glory, leading His heavenly armies to Earth. The battle will be won by King Jesus Christ and the armed hordes of the Earth will be totally defeated. The Earth will be in ruins. Death and destruction will lie everywhere. Rather than returning to heaven, King Jesus Christ will erect His glorious throne in Jerusalem, establish it as His capital city, reinstate the Jews as His people, and rule over the entire Earth in a 1,000 years reign of peace, prosperity and righteousness, which we call the Millennium (Revelation 20:4-6).
The Old Testament prophecies are filled with details about the new government King Jesus Christ will establish when He returns to Earth. Here is what it will be like when the Lord Jesus Christ rules the world:
- Jesus Christ Will Be King.
- The Branch of David will rule (Jeremiah 23:5).
- Jesus Christ will fulfill His prophesied rule (Luke 1:32-33).
- The believers of the Church age and resurrected martyred great tribulation saints will reign with Jesus Christ (Revelation 20:4-6).
- Israel Will Be Prominent.
- Israel will be the favored nation (Isaiah 2:1-3).
- Jerusalem will be the capital city (Isaiah 60:10-14).
- David’s throne will be re-established (Luke 1:32).
- Christ’s Rule Will Reflect His Character.
- Justice for everyone (Isaiah 2:4).
- All will prosper (Micah 4:4).
- Jesus Christ will reign in righteousness (Jeremiah 23:5).
- The Earth will be at peace (Zechariah 8:4-5).
- People will be safe (Jeremiah 23:5-6).
- The Natural World Will Be Transformed.
- Climate will be ideal (Isaiah 30:23-26).
- Wild animals will be tame (Isaiah 11:6-8).
- Fishing will be great (Ezekiel 47:9-10).
- People will have good health (Isaiah 35:5-6).
- Life of people will be lengthened (Isaiah 65:19-20, 22).
- Trees will provide food and medicine (Ezekiel 47:12).
- God Will Be Worshiped.
- The name of Jehovah (God) and Lord Jesus Christ will be known throughout the world (Malachi 1:11).
- The new Millennial Temple at Jerusalem will be the center of worship (Ezekiel 40-48).
- Representatives will come from everywhere worldwide to worship King Jesus Christ at Jerusalem (Zechariah 14:16).
- All mankind will come to worship King Jesus Christ at Jerusalem (Isaiah 66:23).
- The Jews will lead in worship (Isaiah 60:10-14).
When King Jesus Christ rules in the Millennial kingdom, His love, justice, mercy, righteousness and peace will be found throughout the Earth. Since people reflect their ruler, the people of the Millennial kingdom will reflect the characteristics of their king (Lord Jesus Christ). During this golden age, the Earth will be what God intended it to be. Indeed, shortly after Lord Jesus Christ glorious return, He will transform this age-old Earth, reversing some of the fallout from the curse in the Garden of Eden. These changes will allow the inhabitants of Earth to enjoy a time of prosperity and happiness unparalleled in human history. The re-creation of King Jesus Christ will be marked by:
The Sovereign Ruler Reigns In The Millennium. The Millennial kingdom of King Jesus Christ will not be a democracy. Rather, it will be a theocracy– a benevolent government led by God. As Ruler of the Earth during the Millennial kingdom period, King Jesus Christ will be a King who will “reign and prosper, and execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.” (Jeremiah 23:5). As King, Lord Jesus Christ will do what no other leader in history has been able to do. He will govern with absolute authority, righteousness and justice. Finally, after so many failures on the part of mankind, a utopian world will have arrived. King Jesus Christ will rule as we have always desired leaders to rule. There can be no such golden age for this world apart from the personal appearance, presence and rule of its rightful Sovereign, the Prince of Peace, King Jesus Himself! During this time, the nations “shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.” (Isaiah 2:4).
Prophet Zechariah predicted, “Then shall the Lord (King Jesus Christ) go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle. And His feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives…And the Lord (King Jesus Christ) shall be King over all the earth (Zechariah 14:3-9).” Revelation 19 pictures the Messiah (King Jesus Christ) as Lord of lords and King of kings, coming down from heaven riding upon a white horse. In Revelation chapter 20, Apostle John made reference to 1,000 years about six times! This time span refers to a golden age when Satan is bound and King Jesus Christ is ruling over the nations of the Earth from the city of Jerusalem. During this golden age, “the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord (King Jesus Christ) as the waters cover the sea.’ (Habakkuk 2:14).
The Millennial kingdom is primarily a political kingdom, though it has spiritual aspects and Lord Jesus Christ is the King of Kings, who has come to reign over the Earth. Because it is an earthly kingdom with Lord Jesus Christ on the throne, it obviously cannot be fulfilled in the present age when Lord Jesus Christ is in heaven, though Christians form a part of the kingdom of God in a spiritual sense.
Jesus Christ will serve as King of kings and Lord of lords in the Millennial kingdom and will fulfill the promises that He will sit on David’s throne over the house of Israel (2 Samuel 7:16; Psalm. 89:20-37; Isaiah 11:1-16; Jeremiah 33:19-21). In His relationship to Israel as her king, He was born to rule over her (Luke 1:32-33). The people of Israel rejected Him as their king (Mark 15:12-13; Luke 19:14). In His death, it was posted on the Cross that He died as a King (Matthew 27:37). It is in keeping with this that when He comes again, He comes as the King who will fulfill prophecies of His ruling over the Davidic kingdom (Revelation 19:16).
In addition to reigning over Israel as the Son of David, Lord Jesus Christ is also King of kings over the entire Earth, and this includes the Gentile world. As Psalm 72:8 states, “He will rule from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.” The fact that Lord Jesus Christ will reign over the entire world is taught by many Scriptures (Isaiah 2:1-4; 9:6-7; 11:1-10; 16:5; 24:23; 32:1; 40:1-11; 42:3-4; 52:7-15; 55:4; Daniel 2:44; 7:27; Micah 4:1-8; 5:2-5; Zechariah 9:9; 14:16-17). These Biblical verses demand a literal kingdom and a literal reign of King Jesus Christ on Earth.
In Christ’s reign over the people of Israel, David will be resurrected as king and serve as a “Regent” under King Jesus Christ (Jeremiah 30:9; 33:15-17; Ezekiel 34:23-24; 37:24-25; Hosea 3:5). The twelve Apostles also will have part in the reign of King Jesus Christ on Earth and will judge the twelve tribes of Israel (Matthew 19:28).
The divine kingdom of King Jesus Christ in the Millennium is clearly over the entire Earth in fulfillment of Psalm 2:6-9 (Psalm 72:8; Daniel 2:35; 7:14; Micah 4:1-2; Zechariah 9:10). This is in keeping with His title in Revelation 19:16 as “King of kings and Lord of lords.” The Millennial kingdom will be an absolute rule of King Jesus Christ and it will involve judgment on anyone who opposes Him. (Psalm 2:9; 72:9-11; Isaiah 11:4).
Righteousness and justice will characterize the Millennial kingdom, in contrast to the corrupt governments of our present world. In keeping with this, Psalm 2:10-12 speaks of His wrath, and Isaiah 11:3-5 gives assurance that the poor and the meek will be dealt with righteously. Because all those who enter the Millennium are either resurrected saints or people who became born again (saved) during the great tribulation period and survived, in the early stages of the Millennium, there will be a righteous manner of life in the world such as the world has never seen.
A Time of Faith In Lord Jesus Christ. The Millennial kingdom period will be a time of faith, when the majority of the population will become believers-in-Christ (Christians). Only saved mortal people (born again Christians) will enter the Millennium and those born during the thousand years of Christ’s reign will need to receive Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and become born again Christians. Christianity will be the only approved religion worldwide during the Millennial kingdom period. No false religion or occultic society will be allowed worldwide. The Holy Bible will be the only approved Scriptural book worldwide. No false Scriptural book or occultic book will be allowed worldwide. Since King Jesus Christ will be fully in charge, there won’t be immoral or other forms of destructive Television programming or worldly music/movies that can blind the minds of people to the eternal Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ. Body damaging substances (cocaine, heroin, marijuana, opium, LSD, anabolic steroid, cigar, cigarette, alcoholic drinks, etc.) will not be available worldwide, so people will not have their minds so fogged that they cannot fairly appraise the truths of Scriptures (Holy Bible). Satan will be bound for 1,000 years in the fiery bottomless pit so he cannot “blind the eyes” of the people spiritually.
In the Millennial kingdom period, the citadel of learning (University) will not be dominated by Professors or Doctors who are Atheists or Agnostics set to destroy the minds of youths. The false theory of “Evolution” or “Big Bang” false theory will be banned forever. All education from Primary, Secondary and University levels will start from the premise: “In the beginning GOD!” In such an academic climate, young people will be more open to the claims of God and Lord Jesus Christ on their lives. All education and art forms will glorify Lord Jesus Christ during the Millennial kingdom period. According to Jeremiah 31:31-34, everyone will be acquainted with the eternal Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ. The Millennial kingdom period will offer people who have not known Lord Jesus Christ or His true expectations an opportunity to respond to Him. It is important to note that this is not a second chance. It will be the first and only chance for these people. The Bible teaches that everyone will have an opportunity to come to God (2 Peter 3:9).
During the Millennial kingdom period, Isaiah 65:20 indicates that unbelievers will die “being 100 years old.” This means that a person will be considered still a “child” at “100 years” of age. In essence, this indicates that only believers-in-Christ (Christians) will live beyond their hundredth birthday. Evidently God will give people “100 years” to decide about Lord Jesus Christ. If they accept Him as Personal Lord and Savior, they will be permitted to live on for the rest of the Millennial kingdom period. However, no sinner will survive his or her hundredth birthday. Therefore, only believers-in-Christ (Christians) will be alive to propagate and raise children after they are “100 years” old.
During the Millennial kingdom period, Satan will be bound in the fiery bottomless pit (Revelation 20:1-2) and God’s people who will have been changed into immortal beings (glorified Saints) on glorious Rapture day (1 Corinthians 15:52), will be actively teaching mortal people worldwide God’s ways and the eternal Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ. Commenting on this time, Isaiah 30:20-21 says: “And though the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your teachers will not be moved into a corner anymore, but your eyes shall see your teachers. Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it, whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.” Satan’s constant influence to cause people to sin, which is part of this present evil world, will be replaced by immortal beings (glorified Saints) that will help guide people into Godly paths. Because of this positive teaching and guidance by immortal beings (glorified Saints) and the fact that God’s law will be going out to all the Earth from Jerusalem (Isaiah 2:2-3), the mortal people living in the Millennium will know about this period of time and that this is their opportunity to respond to God and Lord Jesus Christ.
The Spiritual Life In The Millennial Kingdom. Though the Millennial kingdom is a political kingdom, it nevertheless will provide a context for a high level of spiritual life and experience. Though Lord Jesus Christ reigns in the hearts of His followers now, in the Millennial kingdom this will be universal, political, and visible. An important part of this is the fact that Lord Jesus Christ will be visibly present and the world will be able to see His great glory (Matthew 24:30). Psalm 72:19 also mentions that the whole Earth will be filled with His glory.
In addition to other aspects of the spiritual life, full knowledge of God and His ways are indicated, as stated in Isaiah 11:9: “They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” In contrast to the Mosaic Law, which was written on tablets of stone, God will put His truth in the heart of man, and all will know the facts about Lord Jesus Christ (Jeremiah 31:33-34). God will also forgive their sins and pour out His blessings upon them. The spiritual life in the Millennium will be manifested in righteousness among the glorified Saints, who will flourish (Psalm 72:7).
In addition to the kingdom being righteous in relation to spiritual life, it will also be a time of peace, when nations no longer fight each other, and interpersonal relationships will be peaceful. Isaiah 2:4 states, “He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.”
In keeping with righteousness and peace, there will be universal joy, as stated in Isaiah 12:3-4: “With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. In that day you will say: Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.”
In keeping with these predictions, the power of the Holy Spirit will work in the Millennial scene. Glorified Saints in the Millennium will be indwelt by the Holy Spirit, even as they are in the present age (Isaiah 32:15; 44:3; Ezekiel 39:29; Joel 2:28-29). The Millennial kingdom will manifest a high level of spiritual life unequaled in any previous dispensation.
The Social And Economic Characteristics Of The Millennium. The Millennium will provide a high level of social and economic characteristics for the entire Earth. Probably the majority of those living in the Millennium will be saved. This is because only saved mortal people (born again Christians) will enter the Millennium and those born during the thousand years of Christ’s reign will, of course, need to receive Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and become born again Christians. Because there is such universal knowledge of Christ and because Satan is bound and cannot oppose this, it would seem that the great majority of those who live in the millennial kingdom period will be saved even though at the end of the Millennium there will be a rebellion on the part of those who are not actually saved. The millennial kingdom period will also be a time of great prosperity and there will be no poor people or people suffering from lack of economic needs. The curse on the ground pronounced after Adam’s sin will be lifted, and even the desert will produce abundant crops (Isaiah 32:14-15; 35:1-2). It will be a time of general prosperity for the entire Earth (Jeremiah 31:12; Ezekiel 34:25-29; Joel 2:21-27; Amos 9:13-14).
In the Millennial kingdom period, each of the twelve tribes of Israel will have its designated portion of the promised land as indicated in Ezekiel 48.
One of the outstanding features of the Millennium is that there will be no war. Accordingly, expenditures necessary to support a military branch of the government will be turned into improvement of the social and economic life in the Millennium.
Contributing to peaceful circumstances, there will be universal justice. As stated in Isaiah 11:4, “With righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.”
The Earth, which was cursed following Adam’s sin, will now bring forth abundantly as stated in Isaiah 35:1-2, “The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the Lord, the splendor of our God.” There will be abundant rainfall (Isaiah 30:23; 35:7). In general, there will be prosperity under the ideal government of King Jesus Christ (Jeremiah 31:12; Ezekiel 34:25-29; Joel 2:21-27; Amos 9:13-14).
Apparently, sickness will be less prevalent in the Millennium than in any previous dispensation and physical difficulties will be healed (Isaiah 29:18; 33:24). Even those who are lame will be healed and those who are dumb will be able to speak (Isaiah 35:5-6). In general, longevity will characterize the human race, for a person who dies at the age of “100 years” will be considered a “child” (Isaiah 65:20).
Because the Earth’s population has been decimated by the events of the Great Tribulation period, those in the Millennium will witness a large increase in the birth rate. In the book of Jeremiah the Lord (King Jesus Christ) says, “From them will come songs of thanksgiving and the sound of rejoicing. I will add to their numbers, and they will not be decreased; I will bring them honor, and they will not be disdained. Their children will be as in days of old, and their community will be established before me; I will punish all who oppress them.” (30:19-20). Indeed, the Millennium will be a golden age to a far greater extent than any previous dispensation.
Increased Productivity In The Millennium. Prophet Isaiah said that “the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; it shall blossom abundantly.” (Isaiah 35:1-2). In addition to enjoying peace and prosperity during the kingdom age, the inhabitants of the Earth will revel in the blessings of a fully cooperative natural world. Nature itself will smile upon mankind. Even the deserts will be well watered. According to Prophet Isaiah, “In the wilderness shall waters break out and streams in the deserts” (Isaiah 35:6). Evidently, new areas of land will be made fruitful and this new source of usable land will lead to a time of great prosperity. Even the fishing will improve (Ezekiel 47:9).
Better Weather In The Millennium. According to Prophet Isaiah, “Then He (King Jesus Christ) will give the rain for your seed with which you sow the ground and bread of the increase of the earth; it will be fat and plenteous.” (Isaiah 30:23). King Jesus Christ transforming work will include changes in the climate of Earth. The sun will be more radiant and even the moon will shine brighter (Isaiah 30:26).
Peaceful Co-existence Of Animals In The Millennium. In the Millennial kingdom period, through the transformation power of King Jesus Christ, wild animals will become peaceful. In Isaiah 11:6-9 it is revealed that “Wolves and sheep will live together in peace, and leopards will lie down with young goats. Calves and lion cubs will feed together, and little children will take care of them. Cows and bears will eat together, and their calves and cubs will lie down in peace. Lions will eat straw (grass) as cattle do. Even a baby will not be harmed if it plays near a poisonous snake. On Zion, God’s sacred hill, there will be nothing harmful or evil. The land will be as full of knowledge of Lord (King Jesus Christ) as the seas are full of water. “
According to Prophet Isaiah, wild animals that are presently carnivorous will begin to eat grass only, so that the animals will not fear one another or harm people. However, not only will all animals literally be herbivorous in the Millennial kingdom period, but all animals once were herbivorous, since neither Man nor beast ate animal flesh prior to the great flood of Noah’s era.
Genesis 1:29-30, “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.”
The Hebrew word “oklah” translated “meat” by the King James Version of the Bible (KJV) simply means food or that which is devoured. The beasts (animals) are neither given for Adam’s food, nor for one another’s food. Both Adam and the beasts (animals) are given the herbs and fruits to eat. So Man (Adam) and beasts (animals) were all vegetarian. However, God changed things after the great flood.
In Genesis 9:2-3 God says to Noah, “And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.”
Since after the great flood of Noah’s era, the animals began to fear people, because human beings were given permission to eat the animals. This was also when many wild animals became carnivorous. However, by the transformation power of King Jesus Christ, all wild animals worldwide will become peaceful during the Millennial kingdom period. Even snakes will become harmless and not dangerous to human beings and animals. No more poisonous venom from the deadly bite of a snake because during the Millennial kingdom period, snakes will not bite again. During this utopian era, a crawling baby will be able to play with a snake which will be like a harmless toy.
“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, the calf and the young lion and the fatling together.” (Isaiah 11:6-7). This means that during the Millennial kingdom of King Jesus Christ, wild animals will become gentle and will not kill other animals again. The implication is that all animals worldwide will become grass eating (Herbivorous) during the Millennial kingdom period. In essence, carnivorous (flesh eating) tendency among wild animals will be removed by King Jesus Christ and His plans for this golden age will surely cause our lives to be more enjoyable.
Life Spans Increased In The Millennium. Isaiah 65:20-25 says, “There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD (King Jesus Christ).“
There are many key statements in this prophetic passage. We see a great increase in life spans. However, not only will life spans literally be longer during the Millennium, but this too occurred before the great flood of Noah’s era.
In the genealogy from Adam to Noah given in Genesis 5 and 9:29, there are extremely long life spans. When we exclude Enoch who was taken to heaven by God (Genesis 5:24) at the age of 365 years and Lamech who died at the age of 777 years, we find that all of the other eight lived between 895 and 969 years. Methuselah was the oldest man who died at the age of 969 years. After the great flood of Noah’s era, there was a rapid drop in life span to a little over 400 years. Around the time of the tower of Babel, life spans dropped to a little over 200 years. Then they began to slowly decrease to more modern life spans over a period of hundreds of years.
According to Isaiah 65, during the Millennial kingdom period, longevity will be increased to almost what it was prior to the great flood of Noah’s era, when people lived to almost 1,000 years of age. At least that will be the case for believers-in-Christ born in the Millennial kingdom period, who will live from the time of their birth until the end of the Millennial kingdom period. In essence, 1,000 years life span will become a reality for a mortal believer-in-Christ during the Millennial kingdom period. Isaiah 65:20 indicates that a person will be considered still a “child” at “100 years” of age. Definitely, this will be a utopian era. Glory to Lord Jesus Christ.
In the Isaiah 65:20-25 passage we also see normal, everyday life taking place during the Millennial kingdom period. In this prophecy, we see normal activities like building houses, living in them, planting vineyards, eating fruit, bearing children, and sometimes even death among mortal human beings. The Glorified Saints with glorified bodies who are immortal beings can never die. This passage also provides further evidence of carnivorous animals becoming herbivorous.
It is pertinent to note that it is not only those who are resurrected or changed into immortal bodies that will enter the Millennial kingdom. This would leave no one in the Millennial kingdom who could possibly sin or die. But Matthew 25:31-46 describes King Jesus Christ dividing the sheep from the goats at the end of the great tribulation period. This is the judgment of the Gentile nations (Matthew 25:32). All of the people gathered on the Lord’s right hand are survivors of the great tribulation period and will pass into the Millennial kingdom in their mortal bodies. They will bear children who are mortal as well. The same is true for the many Israelites who will survive the great tribulation period, and will bear children in the Millennial kingdom. Ezekiel 37:25-26 says, “And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince forever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.” All of these mortal people and their descendants will be capable of both sin and death in the Millennial kingdom, even though Satan will be in chains in the fiery bottomless pit and unable to influence them.
An End To Wars In The Millennium. There will be no war on Earth during the one thousand years reign of King Jesus Christ, until Satan is released from his bottomless pit prison (Revelation 20:7-9) for a short period at the end. In reference to Lord Jesus Christ, Micah 4:3 says, “And He (King Jesus Christ) shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.” Isaiah 2:4 is another similar passage. Not only will there no longer be any war on Earth during the Millennial kingdom period, but the dangerous weapons of war worldwide will be dismantled and battle strategies will no longer be taught. Hallelujah! Glory to Lord Jesus Christ.
Israel will be at peace and dwell safely in the Millennial kingdom period. “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King (Lord Jesus Christ) shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is His name whereby He shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” (Jeremiah 23:5-6). This is certainly in contrast to the present period with Israel surrounded by her enemies on all sides.
King Jesus Christ’s Judgment In The Millennium And The Restored Judges Of Israel. Micah 4:3 says, “And He (King Jesus Christ) shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.“ “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King (Lord Jesus Christ) shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is His name whereby He shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” (Jeremiah 23:5-6). The prophecies of Prophet Micah and Prophet Jeremiah refer to King Jesus Christ judging the nations of the Earth during His Millennial kingdom. He will do so in all wisdom and perfect justice, with a rod of iron. “And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God” (Revelation 19:15). Lord Jesus Christ will reign as a literal King on a glorious throne, dwelling in Jerusalem.
King Jesus Christ will also restore the Judges to Israel. “And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.” (Isaiah 1:26). Who will the Judges of the twelve tribes of Israel be? Lord Jesus Christ told His disciples, “… Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” (Matthew 19:28). As a traitor, Judas Iscariot committed suicide (self-murder), therefore he is doomed forever in hell and will end up in the eternal lake of fire and sulfur on great judgment day.
The 11 Apostles under the leadership of Apostle Peter replaced Judas Iscariot with Matthias. Paul became an Apostle by the special grace of Lord Jesus Christ but he was very dedicated as an Evangelist and Missionary throughout his life time. Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Apostle Paul wrote some of the books in Biblical New Testament and the numerous activities of his Ministry were recorded in “The Acts of the Apostles’ (Acts 9-28). Therefore, in the Millennial kingdom period, King Jesus Christ will decide wisely whether Apostle Paul or Apostle Matthias will be among the twelve Judges ruling the twelve tribes of Israel.
Israel Will Be A Kingdom Of Priests In The Millennium. “Thus saith the LORD of hosts; It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities: And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts: I will go also. Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you” (Zechariah 8:20-23).
“Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.” (Exodus 19:5-6).
The Feast Of Tabernacles In The Millennium. A prophecy occurring in Zechariah 14:16-19 concerns the Gentile nations keeping the feast of tabernacles in the Millennial kingdom period. “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King (Jesus Christ), the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.” According to this prophecy, during the Millennial kingdom the Gentiles must keep the feast of tabernacles which was formerly a feast just for Israel. To do so, they must travel to Jerusalem once each year to “worship the King” (Lord Jesus Christ).
King Jesus Christ will reign on His glorious throne in Jerusalem like Ezekiel 43:7 says, “And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile..” To know the details about the feast of tabernacles which is also known as the feast of booths, you can read Leviticus 23:33-44. It may be that the feast of tabernacles will take on a slightly different meaning in the Millennial kingdom period since Israel will no longer celebrate their rescue from Egypt, but rather, from all the nations to which they have been scattered. Jeremiah 16:14-15 says, “Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.”
The Millennial New Temple And The Law In The Millennium. The Temple of the Millennial kingdom period is described in detail in Ezekiel chapters 40-44. The glory of the Lord Jesus Christ will fill the Temple (Ezekiel 43:5). The law given by God through Moses will still be kept by the Jews including the animal sacrifices (Ezekiel 43:19-27). The Levites will still minister in the Temple (Ezekiel 44:9-11). The laws and statutes delivered by Moses will be obeyed by the Jews (Ezekiel 44:24). The Sabbaths and feasts of Israel will still be kept including the Passover, the feast of unleavened bread (Ezekiel 45:21), and the feast of tabernacles (Ezekiel 45:25). It will be well known by all that Lord Jesus Christ gave his life as the perfect sacrifice for all mankind.
The new Millennial Temple will be a huge building rich in spiritual meaning. The spiritual significance of the Millennial Temple will differ from the importance of the Temple under the Mosaic Law, but it will provide a means of worship of God, including animal sacrifices. Though animal sacrifices in themselves do not provide any relief from sin, as was true in the Old Testament, Millennial kingdom period sacrifices will look back to the Cross of Lord Jesus Christ even as sacrifices in the Mosaic period looked forward to the Cross of Lord Jesus Christ. Though some critics have opposed the idea of animal sacrifices in the Millennium on the ground that Christ’s sacrifice was sufficient, there does not seem to be any other suitable explanation of the details of the Millennial kingdom period and the details of the sacrificial system in the Millennial kingdom period as provided in Ezekiel’s prophecy. During the present age, the Lord’s Supper is the scriptural reminder of the sacrifice of Lord Jesus Christ.
As portrayed by Prophet Ezekiel, the Millennial new Temple building differs so much from the Temples of Jewish history that it cannot be identified with any of them. Therefore, a new Temple is going to stand in Jerusalem during the Millennial kingdom period. A literal acceptance of Prophet Ezekiel’s prophecy about another Temple with its associated animal sacrifices does not, as some critics claim, mean a return to the bondage of the law. Indeed, as the animal sacrifices under the law in Old Testament times pointed forward to Lord Jesus Christ, so those that are offered by the Jews in the future Temple during the Millennium will point back to Lord Jesus Christ. They will be vivid reminders of the sacrificial death of Lord Jesus Christ and thus they will serve a purpose similar to the observance of the Lord’s Supper. As we partake of the bread and the cup during the Holy Communion (Lord’s Supper) service in our present day churches, we remember the sacrifice of Lord Jesus Christ for us through His bruised body and shed blood on the Cross of Calvary.
A literal fulfillment of Prophet Ezekiel’s prophecy and the observance of festivals and Sabbaths by the Jews during the Millennium will not be a return to the law. Instead, these observances are going to have memorial significance for the Jews. Although in the Millennial kingdom period, the ancient Jewish calendar will be followed by the Jews, we (glorified Saints) shall not be regulated as the Israelites were under Moses. Neither are we (glorified Saints) going to be involved in the observance of a complicated set of civil and ceremonial laws. Additionally, the idea of a future order of priests among the Jews in connection with the Millennial new Temple does not contradict the New Testament doctrine of the priesthood of all believers. Yes, priests from the Jewish family of Zadok will officiate in the new Temple services during the Millennium, but what they do will not in any way interfere with individual worship and access to God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Christians worldwide will still be attending regular church services during the Millennial kingdom period.
The literal interpretation of Prophet Ezekiel’s prophecy concerning the Millennial new Temple with its grounds and river, could never be located in Jerusalem as it now exists. However, in Zechariah 14:4, we are told that at the return of Lord Jesus Christ to Earth, the Mount of Olives “shall cleave in its midst toward the east and toward the west and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north and half of it toward the south.” Prophet Zechariah later said that, “all the land shall be turned like Arabah from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem.” (Zechariah 14:10). It would be an easy task for the Almighty Lord Jesus Christ to produce the topographical conditions and make possible the fulfillment of Prophet Ezekiel’s prophecy. Therefore, we have no reason to reject a literal fulfillment of those prophetic predictions which speak of the Millennial new Temple as the center of world worship. Nothing about its priesthood or the observance of festivals and Sabbaths by the Jews conflicts in any way with the teaching of the New Testament about the completeness of our salvation or the priesthood of all believers. Also, Zechariah 14 suggests how the Lord Jesus Christ could bring about the physical conditions that would make possible the literal fulfillment of Prophet Ezekiel Millennial new Temple prophecy.
Prophet Jeremiah prophesied of a day when”a King (Lord Jesus Christ) shall reign and prosper, and shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth.” (Jeremiah 23:5). Prophet Malachi prophesied that the name of God is going to be great among the nations “from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same.” (Malachi 1:11). Prophet Isaiah assured us prophetically that “with righteousness shall He (King Jesus Christ) judge the poor… and with the breath of His lips shall He slay the wicked.” (Isaiah 11:4). Certainly, the predictions about the coming Millennial kingdom are going to be fulfilled just like those related to Lord Jesus Christ first coming. We can therefore look forward with glad anticipation to the coming golden age when King Jesus Christ will personally return to this Earth to establish His Millennial kingdom of peace and righteousness. It will be the most glorious time in all human history!
Geographical Changes In Israel During The Millennium. In the Millennial kingdom period, there will be tremendous geographical changes in Israel. When Lord Jesus Christ returns to the mount of Olives, just east of Jerusalem, an earthquake will split the mountain in two. “And His feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.” (Zechariah 14:4-5).
Additionally, the fountain of living water described in Zechariah and Ezekiel will have a geographical impact in Israel. “In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.” (Zechariah 13:1). Zechariah 14:8 shows us where the waters will flow, “And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former (eastern) sea, and half of them toward the hinder (western) sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.” The living waters will flow out of Jerusalem in two directions, to the west to the great sea (western or Mediterranean Sea) and to the east to the Dead Sea (eastern or Salt Sea). For further reference, you can read Ezekiel 47:1-7.
In the Millennial kingdom period, what effect will these living waters have on the Dead Sea? The Dead Sea is about 10 miles wide and 50 miles long running north and south on along the eastern side of Judea. Its northern end is about as far north as Jerusalem. It has no outlet and is seven times more salty than the oceans. No fish live in the Dead Sea, and ocean fish placed in its waters soon die. Only certain types of microbes live in it. Yet In Ezekiel 47:8-11 we are told the waters of the Dead Sea will be healed. “Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed. And it shall come to pass, that everything that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and everything shall live whither the river cometh. And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many. But the miry places thereof and the marshes thereof (swamps) shall not be healed; they shall be given to salt.” Engedi, mentioned above, is on the western coast of the Dead Sea about 25 miles southeast of Jerusalem. A peninsula juts out into the sea from the east. South of this peninsula the Dead Sea is shallow, less than 20 feet deep in most places. But the majority of the sea is north of the peninsula, where the central and northern part of the sea is more than one thousand feet deep. Perhaps verse 11 refers to the shallow southern end, furthest from Jerusalem, that will remain too salty for aquatic life.
In the Millennial kingdom period, as the many following Isaiah verses show, the land of Israel will become much more fertile. The deserts will become fertile fields and the fields will become as forests.
“Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.” (Isaiah 32:15).
“Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?” (Isaiah 29:17).
“For the LORD shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.” (Isaiah 51:3).
“… the dessert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.” (Isaiah 35:1).
In the Millennial kingdom period, the nation of Israel will be given far more land than they presently possess. A general description is found in Genesis. “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates …” (Genesis 15:18). God confirmed this promise to Abraham’s son, Isaac, in Genesis 26:3 and later to Isaac’s son, Jacob, in Genesis 35:12. A detailed description of how this land will be divided by the 12 tribes of Israel is found in Ezekiel chapter 48. Zechariah 14:10 also reveals other geographical changes in Israel. These are just some of the changes to Israel’s geography and ownership that God’s Word (Holy Bible) says will take place when the Millennial kingdom comes. These are only a few of the many prophecies about the Millennial kingdom period in which King Jesus Christ will reign on the Earth from Jerusalem. The prophecies about the Millennial kingdom period that God has provided in the Holy Bible are vast and detailed. The evidence presented here is a sample of the teaching God’s Word (Holy Bible) has to offer on the Millennial kingdom period.
Jerusalem In The Millennium. In the Millennium Jerusalem will be exalted as a city and raised topographically above the surrounding land. According to Zechariah 14:10, “The whole land, from Geba to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem, will become like the Arabah. But Jerusalem will be raised up and remain in its place, from the Benjamin Gate to the site of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the royal winepresses.” Jerusalem will be greatly enlarged but will include some of the old landmarks such as the Benjamin Gate (Jeremiah. 37:13) as well as other gates (Zechariah 14:10).
Any close examination of the many particulars that abound in prophecy of this Millennial kingdom on Earth will make it clear that these prophecies are not being fulfilled in any sense now and that they require a second coming of Lord Jesus Christ, a personal return of Christ on Earth, and the establishment of His kingdom on Earth for a thousand years before the eternal state begins. The Millennial kingdom will not be fulfilled in the new Earth (Revelation 21-22), as in the Millennium there will be sin and death and divine judgment as well as other factors not found in heaven. The Millennium will be fulfilled in the present Earth, even though some changes will be made in the earthly situation.
The Final Defeat Of Satan And End To Human Rebellion On Earth. It is unfortunate that in spite of all the ideal conditions arranged by God to attract a maximum number of people to accept the free salvation offer of Lord Jesus Christ, millions of people will rebel at the end of the 1,000 years kingdom, for Revelation 20 indicates that at the end of the 1,000 years Satan will be released from the fiery bottomless pit to go out “to deceive the nations” – that is, to tempt them to rebel against God. The reason for this tempting is so that all the people living on the Earth at that period who are still unsaved will be forced to make a decision about whether they will receive the salvation of Lord Jesus Christ before God establishes the eternal order. It is apparent that these will be people under 100 years of age because Isaiah 65:20 indicated that only believers-in-Christ will live past their hundredth birthday.
According to Revelation 20, it is very sad that even after living for almost a hundred years under the righteous reign of King Jesus Christ, there will still be a multitude “whose number is as the sand of the sea” who will rebel against God and Lord Jesus Christ when given the opportunity. The implication is that rebellious people has a tendency to reject faith in Lord Jesus Christ due to the rebellion of their own will. Therefore, Satan coming on the scene at this point only brings to the surface the rebellion of many hearts who, like many Jews during the time of Lord Jesus Christ’s Ministry on Earth at His first coming, “willed not to come” to Him that they might have eternal life. (John 5:40). The judgment of God on these rebellious people will be swift because they will be burnt to death by a raging fire sent down by God from heaven before they could carry out their nefarious plot to attack Jerusalem and overthrow the benevolent kingdom of King Jesus Christ.
Revelation 20:10 says, “And the devil who deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast (Antichrist) and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” The ability of living beings to suffer indefinitely in the lake of fire and sulfur is seen in the fact that the Beast (Antichrist) and the False Prophet are mortal men. They are thrown alive into the lake of fire and sulfur at the beginning of the 1,000 years kingdom of King Jesus Christ (Revelation 19:20), yet they are spoken of in the present tense in Revelation 20:10, indicating that they are still there alive and they will continue to be tormented horribly for eternity! Probably, God will transform them suddenly into immortal beings that can’t die before they are cast into the horrible lake of fire and sulfur in order for them to suffer agonizingly for eternity! Surely, with God, all things are possible. It is into this horrible lake of fire and sulfur that Satan is also cast. Satan, Antichrist, False Prophet, Fallen Angels/Demons and all the people from every age in history who rejected God’s free offer of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ “will be tormented day and night forever and ever” in the horrible lake of fire and sulfur (Revelation 20: 11-15, 21:8). Yes, for eternity! That is the strongest word structure in the Bible. Make sure you don’t end up in the horrible lake of fire and sulfur for eternity! Accept the free salvation offer of Lord Jesus Christ now! Tomorrow will be too late!
The bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ guarantees the Christian’s eventual resurrection. There are two resurrections, called in Scripture 1: “the first resurrection” also called “the resurrection unto life” and 2: “the second resurrection” which is the same as “the resurrection of damnation” or “white throne judgment.” The first resurrection is not a single event, but takes place in two stages which are separated by at least seven years. The first stage of the first resurrection is the glorious Rapture of the Church (Bride of Christ) which will include both living and dead Christians. When the Lord Jesus Christ shouts for His Church from heaven, He will resurrect the dead in Christ (all those who “sleep in Jesus Christ”).Then “we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:17). In essence, all those who have received Jesus Christ as their personal Savior whether living or dead at the time He comes in the air to rapture His Church, will be a part of this first stage of the first resurrection. The most comforting part of all is the promise that no matter what happens after that, “we will always be with the Lord.”
There are two stages of the first resurrection. After the first stage, millions of people will yet call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved during the seven years worldwide tribulation period. Then, when our Lord Jesus Christ comes to this Earth to set up His 1,000 years kingdom of peace and righteousness, He will resurrect the believers (great tribulation Martyrs) who are killed (beheaded) during the great tribulation period (Revelation 20:4-6). Indeed, during the great tribulation period left behind lukewarm Christians and unbelievers who become saved who are now very zealous for Lord Jesus Christ will be persecuted and martyred horribly. Millions of them will be tortured and beheaded due to their refusal to worship Antichrist as “God” and also accept his mark of the Beast (RFID chip/human barcode: 666) either in their right hands or foreheads (Revelation 13:14-18). Therefore, the second stage of the first resurrection will include the great tribulation Saints, most of whom will be martyrs because they refused to worship the Antichrist. Just like the raptured believers, the resurrected great tribulation Saints will reign with King Jesus Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the “dead,” or all unbelievers who lived from the days of Adam and Eve until Lord Jesus Christ comes to set His Millennial kingdom, will not be raised until the end of that kingdom age, which comes just before eternity. That is called “the second resurrection.” It is a resurrection of the lost to judgment and then to eternal separation from God (Revelation 20: 11-15, 21:8).
Now, what is your vital choice? Raptured or left behind? Glorious Rapture or 7 years worldwide tribulation period? Raptured in glory or Martyred in pain? Raptured Saint or Great Tribulation Saint? Dedicated follower of Jesus Christ or deluded follower of Antichrist? Micro-chipped or Martyred? Glorified Saint reigning with King Jesus Christ in the Millennial kingdom period or awaiting the great white throne judgment of eternal damnation? Eternal citizen of Heavenly New Jerusalem or doomed eternally in the eternal Lake of Fire and Sulphur? Your choice is very vital! Make the right decision now! Tomorrow will be too late! Jesus Christ is the “ONLY WAY” to Heaven (John 14:6). Accept the great salvation offer of Jesus Christ now! Rapture is imminent!

Time is running out! Rapture is a reality! Heaven and hell are real! Jesus Christ is our eternal Savior. Accept the eternal salvation of Jesus Christ now! Stop procrastinating! Don’t delay your salvation till tomorrow! Tomorrow will be too late!
End Time Visions And Prophecies Of Tsunami, Earthquake, War, Rapture, Great Tribulation And Millennial Kingdom Reign Of King Jesus Christ.
Divine Revelation Of End Time Events Given By Lord Jesus Christ To Elvi Zapata.
The Lord Jesus Christ took Elvi Zapata supernaturally many times, to show him many events of the end of times, including the great tribulation period and events that are going to happen before the Church (Bride of Christ) is raptured.
God showed him three main signs that we will see right before the Rapture. These signs are not to scare the people of God, but a calling for repentance of the nation known as USA and other nations worldwide. Obedience is everything to God. God showed Elvi that God sees the nation known as USA at this present time as Nineveh. Sin has multiplied even in the churches. There is no holiness anymore in many churches. This is a calling for repentance!
Elvi Zapata saw in a vision that huge Tsunami will hit the East-Coast, destroying Florida, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and others. The water will become contaminated. The Lord Jesus Christ advises him to tell the people to store water and food. He also saw a vision of great earthquake in California. The church should pray for the many that will die from the earthquake and Tsunami. He saw that millions will die in Puerto Rico and in the cities of the East Coast due to Tsunami. The Lord Jesus Christ confirms the Tsunami to him again and again. He saw that New Jersey almost covered by water, and only a few survived this great Tsunami.
The Lord Jesus Christ has shown and confirmed this many times, because He wants people to repent. This is an opportunity He is giving the nation called USA. Like He did with Nineveh and the Prophet Jonah as recorded in the Holy Bible (Jonah 1-4).
God also revealed to Elvi a war outbreak between Israel and Iran and its allies. However, he saw that God gives Israel the victory.
According to the revelation given to Elvi by Lord Jesus Christ, these are the main three signs before the Rapture which are the Tsunami in the East coast, the earthquake in California and the war between Iran and Israel. Be ready, following these events the Rapture will come. God is showing these things to His people, so we can be prepared always for the imminent Rapture.
Lord Jesus Christ appeared to Elvi Zapata and took him to heaven to show him His plan for His Church (Bride of Christ). He saw a bright golden table with the plans of God on it. God is going to bring a great revival. All people will have the opportunity to meet the Lord Jesus Christ. A mighty, powerful revival will come, and it will happen shortly after the Tsunami hits the U.S. God showed Elvi in a dream the fruits (positive outcome) that we are going to collect. Millions will be saved through this coming revival.
Joel 2:28-32, “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.”
God will put wealth in His people’s hands to help the needy. He is going to do justice to His people and restore everything that has been taken away from the Church (Bride of Christ) by the enemy (Satan). God will use His people. Everyone that is willingly obedient to Him and surrender to God will be used in the last harvest.
Elvi Zapata also saw in a time soon to come, a collapse in the U.S economy. In vision, he saw people crying because the government had cut medical assistance and they needed it for their children. Others stealing for food, because no more welfare program. The government had no more money to fund the millions in welfare, causing them to go into riots. He saw many crying desperately, complete chaos. Power outages in New York City and throughout the nation (USA). All those things are going to happen because of sin with no repentance. The nation’s wicked ways is bringing God’s judgment.
These catastrophic events are the judgment of God that is coming to the U.S. because of the sin that has multiplied, even though, the Lord Jesus Christ has given this nation chances. Abortion rates are sky rocketing, teenagers are lining up for abortion procedures, homosexual marriages are being widely accepted even among churches. God was holding his judgment. However, He will no longer hold it, if there is no repentance.
In a vision, Zapata was taken to U.S FEMA camps and saw many people from the city in these camps. He saw the National Guard and the army; they all had weapons with them. People were kept in these fenced camps. No one could come out of there. People that were in the camps were divided by nationalities. Everyone was fighting and arguing with each other. The government already planned this. Food has already been ordered. Guns have been taken away from the people, so they will not be able to protect themselves. It is all ready for those camps. Martial law will be implemented very soon. The government will take advantage of people’s right. Probably right after the Tsunami. The Lord Jesus Christ warned him that, this is coming soon.
Elvi was shown that the U.S government, CIA and the Vatican has direct contact with aliens, which are demons. This false teaching or idea will come out, the demons created false religion (Chrislam) to keep harmony throughout the world. Christian persecution will increase. These demons have been giving new technology to certain governments.
This is time to seek for wisdom from God and be closer to Him than ever before. We must repent from our sins. God’s judgment is not for His Church (Bride of Christ). He will protect His people. We should not be afraid. God does not want anyone to be afraid of Him. The fear of the Lord is not the fear that the enemy (Satan) confuses people with, saying that God is too holy for us. We should come to Him through the Lord Jesus Christ. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
After these events happen, and the revival comes upon the world, Lord Jesus Christ will come and Rapture his “Bride” (Rapture ready born again Christians).
Lord Jesus Christ took Elvi Zapata to the great tribulation period, in the spirit, like in a calendar; he saw month by month passing by. In that revelation, he was in the great tribulation period already at that time in his vision. By the looking of people’s clothes, he guessed the time was just before starting summer. He heard the huge cracks noise, because of the earthquakes; people everywhere were really scared and desperate. The people that he saw looked like business people that did not had time to seek God. In the vision, Elvi saw boys and girls 8 years and older, thousands of them, desperately looking for places to hide, robbing and even killing others. Why is that? He asked the Lord Jesus Christ. So many young kids doing horrible things. We have to pray for the children and always prepare them for glorious Rapture. If not, they will be left behind on Rapture day and go through the great tribulation period.
Elvi was taken in the spirit, to a C.I.A. chamber, where he saw them putting people in a sort of computer and implanting something in their brains, that would allow them to even know their thoughts, mind control them. He saw demons chasing people and killing them with no mercy. Those demons were up to 30 feet tall. In a different vision, he also saw demons chasing and killing people, but he saw Lord Jesus Christ in a cloud giving orders to His Angels to protect certain people. The devil does not have control over everything. Everything he does he has to have permission from God. The Lord Jesus Christ has all the powers and control.
The first half of the 7 years worldwide tribulation period will be bad; however, the second part will be a lot worse. The signs are here. There are earthquakes already happening all around the world. The False Prophet is already in place. God revealed to Elvi that the Pope is the False Prophet. There is evil in this man and people are not seeing. Pope Francis is the last Pope. It was also revealed to Elvi that President Obama is the first Beast (Antichrist) and Pope Francis the second Beast (False Prophet).
Revelation 13:15-18: “The second beast (False Prophet) was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast (Antichrist), so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. The beast forced all the people, small and great, rich and poor, slave and free, to have a mark (RFID chip/human barcode: 666) placed on their right hands or their foreheads. No one could buy or sell without having this mark (RFID chip/human barcode: 666), that is the Beast’s (Antichrist) name or the number that stands for the name. This calls for wisdom. Whoever is intelligent can work out the meaning of the number of the beast (Antichrist), because the number stands for a human name. Its (Antichrist) number is 666.”
Elvi Zapata saw zombies in the great tribulation period. After four o’clock, people had to get out of the streets, because they would come and chase them to eat their flesh. The Lord Jesus Christ showed Elvi that the cause of people turning into zombies is a virus that will ruin a person’s DNA, with any type of contact with it. They already have that virus set up to be released, and it will be released in the “Great Tribulation” period. Great evil will be upon the Earth. Mark 13:19, “For there will be greater anguish in those days than at any time since God created the world. And it will never be so great again.”
In the great tribulation period, people still can be saved only if they remain faithful until the very end. Therefore, no matter what happens, do not get the mark of the Beast, which the Lord Jesus Christ showed to be the RFID chip/human barcode: 666. If you do, the Lord Jesus Christ will not receive you as His son or daughter. Those who get the mark of the Beast (RFID chip/human barcode: 666) will not defeat death. If you take the mark (RFID chip/human barcode: 666), you cannot be saved. You lose the seal of the Holy Spirit and the devil will defeat you. You will be doomed for eternity in the horrible lake of fire and sulfur (Revelation 14: 9-12, 20:11-15, 21:8). God showed Zapata in vision, people giving up for the RFID chip/human barcode: 666 in the great tribulation period, because they could not take it anymore. They were starving, eating from the garbage, or whatever they could get a hold of. They were giving up. If for any reason, you are not raptured on Rapture day and you happen to stay in the great tribulation period, Do Not take the mark (RFID chip/human barcode: 666), because it will have no return. God’s plan is to take people to heaven for eternity. The Lord Jesus Christ wants us to focus in going home to heaven. We cannot change what is about to happen. It is in the Word (Holy Bible). Rapture will happen soon and the worldwide great tribulation period is coming.
The Lord Jesus Christ showed Elvi Zapata, North Korea releasing nuclear missiles against the U.S. that cannot be detected by the U.S. radars. He saw that North Korea has received this new technology from demons, which are principalities to deceive the U.S. and other countries in Europe. He saw when North Korea would launch those nuclear missiles and hit different cities in the U.S. He could see the CIA panicking because they could not figure out, where it was coming from. As a result of all the damage that is to come, the dollar is going to collapse. Elvi inquires of the Lord Jesus Christ if we are going to see all these, and the Lord Jesus Christ tells him, No! Lord Jesus Christ is taking his “Bride” (Rapture ready born again Christians) in the glorious Rapture before all these happens.
The glorious Rapture is near! Closer than ever before! It is time to be prepared at all time. The Lord Jesus Christ is coming for His “Bride” (Rapture ready born again Christians) for the Rapture, for those who are obedient and faithful. After glorious Rapture, 7 years worldwide Tribulation period will begin; great evil will be upon this world. After seven years of the worldwide tribulation period, the Lord Jesus Christ will come back to Earth and put an end to the agonizing worldwide tribulation. Also, arresting the enemy (Satan) and throwing him into the Abyss (bottomless pit); locking him for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-3). The Beast (Antichrist) and the False Prophet will be cast alive into the lake of fire and sulfur (Revelation 19:20).
God took Elvi Zapata to the Millennium period where the Church (Bride of Christ: Rapture ready born again Christians) and everyone who refused to accept the mark of the Beast (RFID chip/human barcode: 666) during the great tribulation period will reign with King Jesus Christ. In the Millennium kingdom, King Jesus Christ is the law. Everything will run according to the way that He wants to run. It is going to be very beautiful. This Earth by the end of great tribulation period is going to be destroyed. None of the technology that we have now, will be used in the Millennium. Everything will be brand new. Everybody will be young and handsome or beautiful. They are very happy. Fruits re-grow in the same day they are picked. There is no season for fruits.
In the Millennium, there will be night and day. There will be cars, buildings, roads, planes and highways. In the divine revelation, Elvi Zapata saw this amazing machine, with an incredible technology; building the roads. A single machine builds from beginning to end. The technology is beyond what we know. Nothing in the Millennial kingdom period compares to what we see today in the world because the wisdom comes from God. The science that we have is a fraction of its totality. As Prophet Daniel prophesies, the science will increase (Daniel 12:3). All of this is nothing to our God. He is the Almighty, all-powerful. All we have to do is believe His Word, His promises. Everything in the Millennium look like they can last for thousands of years. The weather will be always perfect. The sun and the moon will be brighter. There will be abundance of everything. No one is going to lack anything.
There will be Christian Ministries in the Millennium. There will be churches, but there will be no Pastors, only Evangelists. Lord Jesus Christ is the Pastor of the church. There will be people playing instruments. Lord Jesus Christ took Elvi Zapata to a church service, and Elvi saw Lord Jesus imparting gifts to the church, people were full of the Holy Spirit, rejoicing in the Lord Jesus Christ. The glory of God was tremendous.
Be prepared, the time is coming very soon. Jesus’ Bride (Rapture ready born again Christians) will soon be raptured. Rapture is imminent. Lord Jesus Christ is coming for His spotless “Bride” (Rapture ready born again Christians). Unfortunately, most who consider themselves Christians will be left behind on glorious Rapture day. Your will alone cannot rid you of all your wrongful desires. Get close to Christ’s love and sinful desires will lose their hold and fall away. Seek Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart. The days are very short. After the glorious Rapture, the Holy Spirit that held back the forces of evil in the world will depart from the Earth to heaven, and evil will rule worldwide (2 Thessalonians 2:3-12). Great Tribulation period will be the worst time on Earth. Get committed now! Repent from your sins! Prepare always for the glorious Rapture!
Divine Revelation Of The Destruction Of American Statue Of Liberty And Tribulation Calamities That Will Befall USA.
By Churchill Smith
I had a dream. It was a terribly frightening dream. In it, I saw a huge angel standing suspended in the air over New York harbor. It looked so large that it covered the night sky. His body was clad in golden armor as if he was going to war. His face and entire being were so bright that I could not gaze up at him for long. White beams of light seemed to radiate outward from him in all directions. He was standing over the Statue of Liberty.
It was night, but I could hardly see the lights around him coming from New York City as he blazed so brightly with divine light. He reached for his belt that was covered with a red sash around his mid-section, and drew out his sword. It was so massive! It blazed with light and fire all around it. It looked at least 100 feet long! I have never felt such fear when I saw an angel before. I just knew this mighty warring spirit had authority from the very throne of God. He had a grim expression as he held this mighty sword over his head with both hands.
I could see that he was poised to hit the Statue of Liberty and cleave it in two! I trembled and tried to hide, but the angel was looking directly at me, and I knew there was nowhere to go that he would not see me. Then he spoke! His voice was like thunder and echoed throughout the whole harbor. He said, “How long will you refuse to humble yourself, O America! You have been weighed in the balances of God and found wanting. Your beginning was great and noble, but your end shall be disgrace and destruction! Thus saith the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, the LORD of Hosts, ‘Time is running out. The bowls of My wrath are full of My fury and judgment. They shall be poured out upon you. You shall drink them down to the dregs every drop! I have come to you day and night pleading with you to return to Me for over one hundred years. I am merciful and long suffering. It brings Me no joy to judge you. But, you have hardened your hearts, scoffed at My warnings through My prophets, and my holy servants. I brought you from nothing and exalted you, O America, higher than any other nation! But now you have fallen lower than Sodom. You have sinned greater than Egypt. You have become prouder than Babylon and Persia. You have become more selfish than Rome. You have exalted yourself in your own wisdom higher than Greece. You have more idols and high places of idolatry and luxury than any Gentile kingdom in history.
Your beginning was pure and great, but now the stench of your sin and filth fills My nostrils! I shall cut you in pieces and you shall reap the harvests of wrath from what you have sown! You shall no longer be the Queen of nations. Now you shall bear your shame and become the lowest of the heathen nations! Now, as Agag, you shall be hacked in pieces! O EARTH, EARTH, EARTH, HEAR YE THE WORD OF THE LORD!” Then, to my horror, that massive sword came smashing down on Lady Liberty. When it hit the top of her head, there was a blinding flash of light and that sword split her in two – right down the middle! Then the sword came again and again against her. It divided her in pieces. As the sword would finish each strike, fires would burst forth. I heard terrible explosions. The vision of the Statue ended with an earthquake as it was hacked into pieces and sunk into the harbor. I was weeping and crying out to God for mercy. Never had I seen this side of God before. I had only really known the love and goodness of Him, never had I seen the Wrath of the Almighty!
Then, as if I was watching from a zoomed-in close up the dream shifted and I started to zoom outward from New York harbor and started traveling in the air over America. What I saw was horror beyond anything I have ever seen! I saw the United States seem to cracking into two with a giant earthquake – right down the middle!
I saw the South-eastern United States covered with a giant wave of water from the ocean. I saw a massive earthquake that just seemed to crack off the coast of California. It reminded me of a Saltine cracker that just cracked in two! The great cities along the West coast just fell into the ocean, all the way from Mexico up to Alaska and giant waves flooded inland until much of the West Coast just wasn’t there! It had disappeared into the Pacific Ocean.
Then I saw three giant rocket missiles that took off into the air. Two came from out of the ocean waters, and one came from land and traveled a great distance. All of them blew up in the air one, two, and three in the upper atmosphere within five minutes of each other. It was out near space. They were terrible nuclear bombs. But the last one was the biggest and it created a huge mushroom cloud over the Mid-west part of America.
Then the ground shook and everything just went black. There wasn’t any electric light coming out of any homes. Then candles began to be lit and fires, and a little light was seen. There were other nuclear explosions, and many people perished throughout the nation. There was just twisted metal and charred debris in cities that once were tall and majestic. There was widespread looting and gangs roaming about everywhere with guns, stealing whatever food and supplies they could find.
Then I saw what looked like elite riot police by the thousands go into communities and even cities, force the people out of their homes, and brought into what looked like concentration camps. Some, but not all of these “police armies” had light blue helmets on.
Hundreds of thousands of people were arrested in this way. Many would not “cooperate” and were just shot and left dead in their homes. But, there were millions of hidden groups that escaped the first wave of these terrible disasters. Revival broke out, and great evangelists, prophets and apostles rose up and began to preach to thousands outdoors, and many were saved and were born again. Miracles of provision, multiplication of food and water, and astonishing healings occurred. Millions of people cried out to God and he heard and answered.
I knew that this was not just happening in America, but the Great Tribulation was upon them, and all over the world these calamities were also taking place. I saw multitudes of Tribulation saints refusing to renounce Jesus as LORD. They were starving, many of them, but still refused to take the stamp on their bodies so they could eat and live. There was what looked like kiosks that were in every little town. They advertised food and water, only if you went inside them and took the electronic mark. Some went in, bowed down to a holographic movie image of the Antichrist and were branded in their hands and foreheads with an electronic tattoo-like stamp. When they came out, if they came out, they had a zombie- like look. Their minds and souls were gone. It looked like they had a spiritual lobotomy.
Then these immediately joined the armies of those police units, and were given weapons after they were fed and drank and rested in the kiosk. They were like robots doing the Antichrist’s bidding. I knew that they were lost forever. But, quite a few did not make it out. They were tortured mentally and physically inside the kiosk thing, but, if they still refused the mark of the beast, there was a laser that shot through their brain and heart, and sliced their heads off.
Then they were immediately incinerated. Nothing but ashes remained. This was the most horrifying of all. It made the Nazi death camps look like a picnic, if that is possible. Millions of people were executed in this way via computer systems automatically with such precision and efficiency that I marveled that something like this was even possible and could take place on such a large scale. The technology was more advanced than I had ever seen.
Then, I was back looking at that terrible angel of the LORD and he said, “Warn everyone! Flee from the wrath to come. Repent and turn to Jesus while you still can. Pray that you may escape these things that are shortly to happen and to stand in the Presence of the LORD. These things are about to take place! Turn to God and cry out for mercy. Come into the ark of Salvation before the doors of grace close and it is too late!” Then I awoke and was very troubled for some time and could not speak for several hours.
Vital Message From The LORD Jesus Christ:
“Few discover I am a GOD WHO is just and will judge according to each individual’s relationship with ME in this life.”
Words Received From Our LORD Jesus Christ By Susan Davis.
Take down these Words:
There is an overwhelming belief that I am not coming soon: so many want to believe otherwise. This world is too attractive to them—longing and looking for MY Coming is the last thing on their minds. When I come to bring out MY church, I will only be looking for a ready bride—a church perched in anticipation of her coming KING. I am coming in ALL MY Glory. Only those waiting…ready…watching with their robes white and stain-free will come out of this stagnant world—a cesspool of evil, a stench under MY Nose. Pin your hopes on the LIVING GOD. This is the ONE True Path—all others lead to destruction. The world is in a rapid descent to ultimate immorality and decay. Once I take out MY bride—MY true worshipful followers, this world will cave in on itself under the weight of the evil that will consume the land.
There will be bloodshed, cruelty, abominable atrocities. Man will enter a never witnessed before level of ultimate degradation. Children who turn back to ME after I take MY church out will find themselves under the rule of a cruel tyrant world leader: the Antichrist, who will round up the true believers, the ones who turn back to their GOD in great remorse. Theirs will be a sad plight as they must then endure the worst possible torment, torture, and death for their decision to return to their LORD and to reject the Antichrist system.
Horror awaits MY left behind, lukewarm church who must do the hard things to return to their GOD. Many will not be willing to pay the price before them in order to obtain their eternal freedom. Those who choose against ME for the Antichrist system will lose their place with ME for eternity and they will be tormented for eternity instead.
Hard choices must be made by those who are left and refuse to follow ME now. Turn to ME now. Surrender your ALL. Lay your life down. I am ready to take you out with ME when I come for MY beautiful bride.
Scoffers, mockers, doubters, lovers of this evil world will soon learn the error of their wayward ways turning back away from their GOD to give themselves over to seducing spirits and evil longings. They are grasping at evil pursuits following their own self-made paths believing they know best for themselves apart from their MAKER GOD WHO first loved them, created them, gave them life. Woe to those who believe this world a better choice than the LIVING GOD WHO makes all, WHO is ALL in all.
Come back to your senses lost church. Your love for ME is weak, your heart is failing, you have no temperature, you have grown cold. I cannot take you with ME, if you believe yourself ready while you devote yourself to this evil world. You are deceived, lost, and your destination is the broad road where many travel to, lost for eternity, everlasting hell.
If this Word sounds untrue, it is because you have not spent time in MY Word or getting to know ME. If MY lost children would come to fear ME, then they would come back to the narrow road and separate themselves from the world and evil.
Few discover I am a GOD WHO is just and will judge according to each individual’s relationship with ME in this life. Do you know your GOD? Come know ME before it is too late. MY Warnings are coming to pass. Do not find yourself outside MY Will, lost for eternity. MY adversary is cruel.
Your choice is before your face. I am the ETERNAL OMNIPRESENT GOD. Reach out. I stand before you.
Matthew 24:43 (KJV): But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
1 John 2:22 (KJV): Who is a liar but he that denieth that JESUS is the CHRIST? He is antichrist, that denieth the FATHER and the SON.
Revelation 7:9 (KJV): After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
Revelation 7:13-14 (KJV): 13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the LAMB.
Jude 1:17-19 (KJV): 17But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our LORD JESUS CHRIST; 18How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. 19These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the SPIRIT.
Vital Message From The LORD Jesus Christ:
“The majority of the world is caught up in their own pleasure: seeking wealth; seeking rebellion to GOD; seeking sensual pleasures.”
Words Received from Our LORD Jesus Christ By Susan Davis.
Children, this is your GOD. You see that the time is drawing near. You see I am trying to make it obvious to you but many do not want to pay attention. Many are still enthralled by the world by what looks normal and exciting to them. The world is putrid to MY Face: it stinks and it is disgusting to ME, a Holy GOD. The world runs contrary to MY Will, the Will of GOD. The world looks right and normal, but only a few operate in MY Will.
The majority of the world is caught up in their own pleasure: seeking wealth; seeking rebellion to GOD; seeking sensual pleasures. This is not MY Will, it is the will of MY enemy (Satan). And this is who the people are led by, the enemy of GOD.
The people want to be led by MY enemy. They want to run counter to MY Will. These are the ones who will drink MY Cup of wrath when I come back for the few who really want to be in MY Will. This is MY true church, MY bride, the bride I died for and the bride I am coming for. She has clean garments and pursues ME avidly. She takes MY breath away. She is the one I am anxious for and she is the one I am coming to rescue. These are MY loyal followers, the few who really read MY Words, the few who follow ME through a relationship and those who want to be in MY Will.
This church is a remnant: there is only a small number compared to those turned against ME. I am coming to set you free, O’ sacred church. You must keep your eyes on ME. For anyone who wants to be part of this church, surrender your all to ME, repent of your sins, give forgiveness to all, seek MY HOLY SPIRIT in HIS Fullness, pray to be baptized in HIS SPIRIT, read MY Words daily, seek ME as your Best FRIEND. I want to hear from you all through the day. These are MY terms, MY requirements for being part of the prepared church. If you do not want to be part of MY church, prepare for MY wrath that is coming to punish this evil world. You must seek ME as your Only HOPE, because I AM mankind’s ONLY HOPE.
This is the LORD GOD, YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH.
Vital Message From The LORD Jesus Christ:
“I cannot tolerate a world that is not interested in hearing about MY sacrifice on the cross.”
Words Received from Our LORD Jesus Christ By Susan Davis.
Children, it is I, your GOD from heaven above. I want to give you news about MY COMING. So few are paying attention in this daunting hour—there is only a remnant paying attention. This has been foretold in MY Book that very few would be watching for ME when I come: when I come for MY bride, MY church.
Very few will be ready…very few will be watching…very few will be looking for ME with eager anticipation. Very few will have their EYES FIXED ON ME. Very few want to follow their GOD: in MY Perfect Will. Very few want to read MY Book by the Power of MY HOLY SPIRIT. Very few want a FULL OIL LAMP. Very few want to give all those around them FORGIVENESS that goes forth from their heart. Very few are REPENTANT before MY Holy Face. Very few are truly REMORSEFUL over their sin. Very few want to SEEK the HOLY SPIRIT for handling the sins of the flesh. Many want to handle their sins in their own flesh apart from the guidance of MY HOLY SPIRIT. It is only by the GUIDANCE and POWER of MY HOLY SPIRIT that anyone can conquer their flesh.
I, GOD, cannot stand how the church clings to the world. The world is an enmity to ME. I will not come back for you if you cling to both, ME and the world. The two cannot mix. The two cannot co-exist although this is the move of the world.
MY Message is an enmity to the world. I cannot tolerate a world that is not interested in hearing about MY SACRIFICE on the CROSS. I AM intolerant of those who deny MY GIFT, MY BLOOD SHED for all mankind. They can look the other way, to other paths that they think will lead to GOD, but there is only ONE path and it is by MY CROSS, MY BLOOD, MY SACRIFICE, MY DEATH, MY RESURRECTION, and MY SPIRIT in all HIS FULLNESS. Surrender to ME, lay your life down before ME, empty yourself. I want ALL of you. Only by giving ME ALL of you will this transaction be made complete and then I will fill you with MY HOLY SPIRIT and you will receive the POWER from GOD on high to live out your life in MY PERFECT WILL for it. There is no other way, there are no other answers. This is what I require and those who think different will be left behind to face the worst, to face MY enemy, face the Antichrist, to face MY wrath. Only you can make this choice for yourself, it is yours to make.
This is your GOD, Loving in ALL MY Ways…
Luke 17:26-30 (KJV): And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the SON of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the SON of man is revealed.
Matthew 7:22-23 (KJV): Many will say to me in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in THY name? And in THY name have cast out devils? And in THY name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
1 Corinthians 9:27 (KJV): But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
Philippians 2:12 (KJV): Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
1 Peter 4:18 (KJV): And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
Matthew 7:13-14 (KJV): Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Vital Message From The LORD Jesus Christ:
“I am the GOD of Second Chances, but time is running out…”
Words Received from Our LORD Jesus Christ By Susan Davis.
Children, it is I, your LORD.
You believe I am never coming back. You say this to each other, “HE says HE is coming, but HE doesn’t come!”
MY children, this is your GOD speaking: Listen closely: I AM COMING! No, you will not know the day or the hour, but you can know the season and this is the season. The signs are appearing and you cannot deny MY coming is near.
I have given you many markings to follow. MY signs have been clear and they are coming to pass. Only those who don’t want to follow ME are not seeing it. They do not want to know because they do not want to know ME, their GOD. Those who follow ME closely can see what is happening around them. They can see the darkness moving in, darker than it has ever been.
This is not the time to be sleeping at the wheel. This is not the time to be ignoring your GOD. If you keep sleeping you are going to miss MY Coming. Will I find any with faith when I return? Many and most are disloyal to their GOD. Very few are looking forward to MY Coming. Wake up and pay attention! Come out of your spiritual slumber! Open your spiritual eyes and see the darkness around you! Stop letting the things of the world move you to distraction! Take your hands off the world! Come wash your hands and your garments in MY Blood. Come wash them in MY Word. Make ready for MY coming.
Warn your neighbors and your friends. You will have blood on your hands if you don’t warn the people around you. Who else can I send if not MY chosen bride? Only she has the truth and the map to the narrow path. All others are lost and misled: blind leading the blind.
Strike a match, start a fire, let MY HOLY SPIRIT Wind blow on the fire. Let the Truth blaze like a fire from your heart through your hands, through your mouth, through your feet. Let the world see the fire of MY True Gospel through MY people, MY bride. You are the only ones who have the Truth. You must not hide a Light under a bushel basket!
I want you to stop being comfortable in this world. I want you to be uncomfortable at the sight of the lost all around you. I want you to stop being comfortable in this world: you are just passing through. You are a foreigner in this land. You must be like soldiers going to war. Many lives are at stake. This is their only chance. If they fail this test, they will be lost forever. Wake up church, get busy! Don’t waste another moment…so many will be lost for eternity…so many are already lost.
If you come with ME, I will open many doors. Just open your mouth. I will put the words in your mouth. I will bring the people to your doorstep for you to talk to about MY Gospel. Once I take MY bride from the earth, the enemy will move in and the people will have a much harder time getting to MY Salvation. It will not be easy for MY “left behind” church. They will have to die at the hand of MY enemy to make it into MY Kingdom. So do not let these golden moments slip by you. These are precious, golden moments. I am the GOD of Second Chances, but time is running out…
2 Peter 3:4 (KJV): And saying, Where is the promise of HIS coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
Mark 13:28 (KJV): Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:
Luke 18:8 (KJV): I tell you that HE will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the SON of man cometh, shall HE find faith on the earth?
Job 41:19 (KJV): Out of HIS Mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.
Psalm 119:105 (KJV): THY Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Proverbs 6:23 (KJV): For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
Matthew 25:3 (KJV): They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
Luke 11:33 (KJV): No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.
The LORD’s Words: “I Have Words, Stern Words to Give to MY Church.”
The following letter is from the LORD Jesus Christ—very serious Words for the church, for very serious times…
Words of the LORD:
“I have Words, stern Words, to give to MY church…”
Words Received from Our LORD Jesus Christ by Susan Davis.
MY children, this is your LORD Speaking, YAHUSHUA. These are the Words I am ready to give today: I have Words, stern Words, to give to MY church. It is the church that calls itself by MY Name. These children are lukewarm, at best. This church fights ME all the way. She is rebellious, but thinks she knows best. She uses MY Name and she thinks this justifies her every move.
She works outside of MY WILL and she believes all is well because she uses MY Name. This church is pimping MY Name for its own purposes. This church uses MY Name for every evil practice under the sun. They make money with MY Good Name even on MY HOLY DAY. MY Name is bantered about with great triviality. I AM A HOLY GOD AND I PROMOTE HOLINESS. I promote HOLINESS by the power of MY HOLY SPIRIT which can only be achieved BY A SURRENDER TO MY PERFECT WILL.
If you are not surrendered to MY WILL, then you are not part of ME and if you are working outside of MY WILL you are working for MY enemy even if you carry MY Name around. Your churches are white sepulchers with dead men’s bones and you are pimping MY Name for your own evil purposes. The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who practice the religion of the enemy using MY Name, spreading lies and half-truths, leading untold numbers of people astray. Whole congregations of people will stand before ME weeping and gnashing their teeth when I reveal to them, “I NEVER KNEW YOU, YOU WORKERS OF INIQUITY” and cast them away for eternity because they have refused to PURSUE their GOD with a FULL SURRENDER because THEY HAVE REFUSED TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT INTO THEIR CHURCHES IN HIS FULLNESS AND BECAUSE THEY HAVE REJECTED PURSUING ME WITH ALL THEIR HEART, SOUL, MIND, AND STRENGTH.
This church, instead, has propagated lies in order to handle the things of the world. It has pursued its love for the world on MY HOLY DAY and MY enemy has infiltrated MY church leading many astray. This church has a form of godliness but denies the power thereof.
MY TRUE CHURCH PURSUES ME WITH RECKLESS ABANDON. MY CHURCH, MY BRIDE, SITS ON THE EDGE OF HER SEAT WATCHING CLOSELY FOR MY RETURN. MY CHURCH PURSUES ME LIKE NO OTHER.
MY TRUE CHURCH DESIRES TO BE IN MY WILL. MY TRUE CHURCH PUTS DOWN EVERYTHING WORLDLY TO SPEND TIME REACHING LOST SOULS.
MY TRUE CHURCH WILL NOT MOVE TO THE RIGHT OR TO THE LEFT WITHOUT SEEKING MY WILL THROUGH PRAYER, FASTING, READING MY WORD, AND THROUGH HAVING CONSTANT COMMUNICATION WITH ME.
MANY CHURCHES WILL BE LOST BECAUSE THEY CARE NOT TO FOLLOW THEIR GOD. THEY LOVE THE WORLD AND IT’S WAYS TOO MUCH AND THEY ARE NOT WILLING TO HAND THEIR LIVES TO ME, THEIR GOD. IN EXCHANGE FOR THEIR INFIDELITY, THEY ARE RIDDLED WITH SPIRITS OF ADDICTIONS, LUST, REBELLION, FORNICATION, WITCHCRAFT, SORCERIES, AND ALL THE EVILS THE WORLD IS ENGAGING IN. THEY CANNOT CONQUER SIN BECAUSE THEY ARE STILL OPERATING IN THE FLESH. THEY STILL OPERATE IN THE FLESH BECAUSE THEY ARE UNWILLING TO MAKE A FULL SURRENDER TO THEIR GOD AND RECEIVE THE FULL POWER OF MY HOLY SPIRIT.
These are the foundation of MY harlot church. Take heed, O’ harlot church, make your way back to ME before it is too late! THESE WORDS ARE TRUE; READ MY BOOK AND FIND THE TRUTH, ASK FOR MY SPIRIT TO GUIDE YOU TO ALL TRUTH.
This is your LORD GOD: FATHER, SON, and HOLY SPIRIT.
Revelation 3:16 (KJV): So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Matthew 7:21 (KJV): Not everyone that saith unto ME, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that doeth the Will of MY FATHER which is in Heaven.
2 Timothy 3:5 (KJV): Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Psalm 139:20 (KJV): For they speak against THEE wickedly, and THINE enemies take THY name in vain.
Vital Soul Winning Admonition Of “MARANATHA TRUMPETER” Evangelical Outreach.
Heaven: Why Born Again? John 3:3-16; 14:6. To be allowed to pass through heaven’s gate, you need to have all of your sins removed. The only cleanser strong enough to thoroughly remove sin stains is the blood of Jesus Christ. First, admit your sinful state. Next, ask Jesus Christ to forgive you of your wrong doings. Finally, make Jesus Christ Lord of your life by surrendering your will to Him. Ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and to forgive your sins. By dying on the cross, Jesus Christ made it possible for each of us to be granted a full pardon from the punishment of eternal damnation in hell. The reason so few people accept this pardon is that they do not think they need a Savior or they want to find their own way of salvation. When God looked at your soul, He saw a sinner. God judges your heart, your thoughts, your attitude and intentions. When you are saved and forgiven of your sins, God looks upon you and sees the blood of Jesus Christ making you pure and clean. Accept the salvation of Jesus Christ now! Tomorrow will be too late!
After being born again, remain dedicated in your commitment to our Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is an act of faith (John 3:3-16, 5:24). There are no signs to look for. Believe strongly that you are saved in Jesus name. Don’t doubt. Make sure you continue to grow in your devotion to Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t backslide. You must always resist temptation that can lead you to indulge in sinful acts. Read your Bible daily. Also, pray always and look for a reliable gospel-focused Church where you can worship God regularly. Glorious Rapture is our blessed hope and an imminent reality. Therefore, we must be ready always for Rapture. Never give up.
IS YOUR NAME WRITTEN IN THE HEAVENLY BOOK OF LIFE? Revelation 20:11-15; John 3:3-16,14:6. Sincerely, to have your name written in heavenly book of life, you must accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour now! You can’t be neutral. You are either a true follower of Jesus Christ or a doomed follower of Satan. You are deceiving yourself and hell bound after death by claiming to be an unbeliever, freethinker or a religious idolater. You will be left behind on imminent Rapture day and suffer terribly during the 7 years worldwide tribulation period after Rapture. Accept the great salvation offer of Jesus Christ now! Tomorrow will be too late! Jesus Christ is the “ONLY WAY” to heaven, no other ways (John 14:6). You have been warned. No more excuse for you if you die and end up in hell. Your argument is futile! Repent now or perish for eternity in the eternal lake of fire and sulfur (Revelation 21:8). Raptured saint or martyred saint? Follower of Jesus Christ or Antichrist? Decide wisely!
ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED? NO! Do you believe in “Once Saved, Always Saved” (OSAS) teaching by some lukewarm preachers? If you do, you are being deceived by Satan. A backslidden preacher or backslidden Christian can end up in hell after death (2 Peter 2:1-22). Also, a cold/lukewarm Christian can be left behind by Jesus Christ on imminent Rapture day (Revelation 3:14-22). Therefore, as born again Christians, we must repent always from any known or hidden sins, be committed to soul winning and be ready always for imminent glorious Rapture. We can’t make heaven by personal efforts or self-righteousness. We can only make heaven by the great mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Is Your Name Written In The Book Of Life? Revelation 20:11-15; John 3:3-16, 14:6. To have your name written in heavenly book of life, you must accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour. You can’t be neutral. You are either a true follower of Jesus Christ or a doomed follower of Satan. You are deceiving yourself and hell bound after death by claiming to be a Freethinker, Agnostic, Atheist, New Ager, Mystic, Occultist, Muslim, Traditionalist, Living Perfect Master, Grand Master, Avatar, Swami, Occultic Guru, Buddhist, Grail Messenger, Eckist (Eckankar), Amorc (Rosicrucian), Sai Baba devotee, Hare Krishna devotee, Mormon, Ba-hi Faith believer, Scientologist, Sufist, Freemason, Illuminati member, Traditional Idolater, Religious Idolater, Satanist, Witch, Wizard, Sorcerer, Magician, Medium, Psychic, Enchanter, Hypnotist, Astrologer, Fortune Teller, Astral Traveller, Homosexual, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Pedophile, etc. You will be left behind on Rapture day. Accept salvation of Jesus Christ now!
Eternity: Are You Heavenly Or Hell Bound? “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8). This biblical quotation will condemn you to eternal damnation after your physical death. Jesus Christ will judge you on judgment day. You can still escape this eternal doom in the lake of fire since you are still alive. Repent and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour now! Today may be your last day before death. Avoid hell! Heaven is your best choice. Jesus Christ loves you. No more excuse for you if you die as an Atheist, Agnostic, Freethinker or unbeliever. God is real! Jesus Christ is real! Heaven and Hell are real! You have been warned! Repent before it is too late! Judgment day is certain! Jesus Christ is the only WAY to Heaven (John 14:6). Are you a cold or lukewarm believer? Be hot for Jesus and ready always for Rapture!
What Is The Great White Throne Judgment? At the great white throne judgment of God, the soul/spirit of condemned people in hell will merge with their immortal bodies. In their resurrected forms, they will be judged by God. It will be a judgment of condemnation, no appeal or mercy again. The verdict will be: “Guilty!” One can only repent while still alive. One can only accept the salvation of Jesus Christ while still alive. The resurrected condemned people will be cast into the eternal lake of fire and sulphur (Revelation 20:11-15). Second death means eternal separation from God in the horrible lake of fire and sulphur. “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8). Repent now! Tomorrow will be too late! Heaven and hell are real! Heaven is your best choice. Don’t go to hell! Jesus Christ is the “ONLY WAY” to heaven (John 14:6).
Satan, the deceiver and his fallen angels/demons will be thrown and confined totally into the lake of fire and sulfur eventually by God. They will be tormented forever. That will be the end of Satan’s evil activities on earth forever. “The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and sulfur…and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever” (Revelation 20:10). You will be eternally separated from God in the lake of fire and sulfur. Your soul will never die but it will be eternally tormented in the horrible burning lake. “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8).
Jesus Christ is the only way to make Heaven and escape from going to hell when you die (John 14:6). The lake of fire and sulfur will be a place of eternal torment. It will be very terrible for Satan, demons and the lost souls in that eternal burning lake. Do not end up in it! The second death is eternal separation from God in the lake of fire and sulfur (Revelation 21:8). Listen to what Jesus Christ is saying to you now: “Do not be afraid! I am the First and the Last. I am the One who lives. I was dead, but look: I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and hell.” (Revelation 1:17-18). God does not send someone to hell. You choose hell when you refuse to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour.
When you refuse God’s love gift of eternal life in Jesus, you willingly choose hell. Your soul will be tormented for eternity in hell when you die. When you say “No” to Jesus and His payment for your sins, you are saying that you are looking forward to dying and being cast into hell. You are telling God that you do not need Jesus Christ. You will pay for your sins in hell. Hell is for eternity! If you die without accepting the salvation of Jesus Christ, you will be tormented in hell forever! You will despair of ever having any deliverance! You will beg for death to come and take you away! However, you can only die once (Hebrews 9:27). Purgatory is a false doctrine. Reincarnation is a great satanic deception. Do not let Satan deceive you with false doctrines again.
It will be a great disaster if you die without Jesus Christ (Mark 8:36). Hell is a place of eternal torment! “The smoke from their burning pain will rise forever and ever. There will be no rest, day or night.” (Revelation 14:11). God has a perfect place for you in heaven: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no person has imagined what God has prepared for those people that love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9). Avoid hell. Jesus Christ is your only way of making heaven (John 14:6). It will not cost you anything to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. Accept Jesus Christ while you are still alive. It will be too late if you die and end up in hell. Take the right decision now. “The salvation that was given to us is very great. So surely we also will be punished if we live like this salvation is not important.” (Hebrews 2:3).
“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:11-15).
If you have never received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, ask Him to save you now! Confess all your sins and ask God to forgive you in Jesus name. Do not put it off another second! This may be your last chance before you die! Take the chance now! The salvation of Jesus is very important. Remain steadfast. Heaven will be your eternal home in Jesus name. It is very easy to accept the salvation of Jesus Christ. To accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, pray the salvation prayer below and mean it with all your heart.
Salvation Steps & Prayer
Are you still an unbeliever or unrepentant sinner? You must accept the great salvation of Jesus Christ now! If you remain in your rebellion against Jesus Christ, you will be left behind on Rapture day by Jesus Christ. Also, if you die without accepting the great salvation offer of Jesus Christ, you will end up in eternal burning hell! How can you be saved? It is very simple. Take the steps below.
The following prayer, “The Sinner’s Prayer” (also known as the Prayer of Salvation) is by no means meant to be an “official prayer”, but rather a sample prayer to follow when asking Jesus Christ into your heart. You may certainly pray to God in your own words.
Regarding the location of the Sinner’s Prayer in the Bible? Well, there isn’t one mentioned; it is only implied. The basis of the Sinner’s Prayer comes from Romans 10:9-10. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
If you say the following prayer and mean it with all your heart; along with repenting of your sins (asking for forgiveness), we believe that you will be saved and be born again. You may be wondering, “What happens next?” First, you will need to get into a bible-based church and study God’s Word. Once you find a church home, you will want to become water-baptized. By accepting Christ you are baptized in the spirit, but it is through water-baptism that you show your obedience to the Lord. Water baptism is a symbol of your salvation from the dead. You were dead but now you live; for the Lord Jesus Christ has redeemed you for a price! The price was His death on the cross. May God Bless You!
Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness. I believe that your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved. Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved. Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself. Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.
If you just said this prayer and you meant it with all your heart, we believe that there is a great possibility that you just got saved and are born again. You may ask, “Now that I am saved, what is next?” First of all, you need to get into a bible-based church, and study God’s Word. Once you have found a church home, you will want to become water-baptized. By accepting Christ you are baptized in the spirit, but it is through water-baptism that you show your obedience to the Lord. Water baptism is a symbol of your salvation from the dead. You were dead but now you live, for the Lord Jesus Christ has redeemed you for a price! The price was His death on the cross. May God Bless You!
Take these easy steps to be saved: Realize you are a sinner. “There is no person without sin. None!” (Romans 3:10). “All people have sinned and are not good enough for God’s glory.” (Romans 3:23). Realize you cannot save yourself. “We are all dirty with sin. Even our good works are not pure. They are like blood-stained rags.” (Isaiah 64:6). “He saved us because of His mercy (love), not because of any good things we did.” (Titus 3:5). Realize that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins. “Christ carried our sins in his body on the cross. He did this so that we would stop living for sin and live for what is right.” (1 Peter 2:24). “Jesus is the one who loves us. And Jesus is the One who made us free from our sins with his blood (death).” (Revelation 1:5). Simply by faith receive Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. “Some people did accept Him. They believed in Him. He gave something to those people who believed. He gave them the right to become children of God.” (John 1:12). “…Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, you and all these people from your house.” (Acts 16:30-31). “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).
