Millennial Prophecies in the Book of Isaiah "LOOK AT THE WORLD TODAY! Is there anything more pitiful? What madness there is! What blindness! What unintelligent leadership! A furiously racing mass of bewildered humanity, strengthening, not in wisdom but in vulgar passions, crashing headlong into each other, motivated by greed and propelled into brutality. The time must come when evil will destroy itself…And when the strong have devoured each other, then at last the meek shall inherit the Earth. (Mt.5:5)" James Hilton, 1933, when the world wasn’t that bad yet. The world today is such a mess and there are such “MESSERS” running it! In fact, in all the thousands of years that man has been trying, he has never been able to save himself. Man's plans have never succeeded and never will! Any system, whether it be capitalist, socialist, communist, democracy or dictatorship, whatever it is, is going to be a flat failure without God!--And although man's final one-World government which is soon to arise under the Antichrist will purportedly be the greatest, most powerful, most ideal government he's ever had, man's ultimate creation, it will turn out to be the most horrible, hellish, heinous government the World has ever known! But one of these days very soon, the King is going to come back to claim His Kingdom at the awesome Battle of Armageddon and will then sweep away all of this world’s kingdoms, but not all the people!-Many of them will still be here, but we'll be governing over them.--"And there was given Him dominion, and glory, and a Kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve Him: His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His Kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. But the saints of the Most High shall take the Kingdom, and possess the Kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever!" (Dan.7:14, 18)
God is going to be supreme and Jesus will reign from shore to shore and we will rule and reign with Him with that rod of iron! Then wicked man will be forced to do what's right and forced to obey for a thousand years!--"And judgement was given to the saints of the Most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the Kingdom. And the Kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the Kingdom under the whole Heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him!" (Dan.7:22, 27.) In this class, we will focus on the prophecies of the Old Testament prophet Isaiah and we begin here with: Isaiah 1:24-28 “Therefore says the Lord, the Lord of Hosts, the mighty One of Israel, ah, I will ease Me of Mine adversaries, and avenge Me of Mine enemies! And I will turn My hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin: 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. Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness. And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the Lord shall be consumed!” As we come into the Millennial Kingdom of Christ, all this will have been accomplished already. Following are some of the most famous and most beautiful passages regarding this Coming Kingdom of God on Earth, this millennial thousandyear reign of Jesus Christ with His Saints: Isaiah 2:2-4 "And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains"--these mountains symbolising governments, and God’s government will be over all other kingdoms and nations. "And shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem. As you can see, the biggest job we have in the Millennium is to teach others about the Lord and continue to witness the Love of God, to invite them into His Kingdom of the Spirit. Jesus Christ is going to set up His throne in Jerusalem and make it His Millennial capital! And from there He will rule and reign over the Earth! And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning
hooks." Wow! That will be the day!--No more war, no more armaments, no more weapons, no more killing! Final disarmament! THAT will be the real genuine disarmament, beating their weapons into instruments of peace, into useful instruments and tools for the farmers, which will be nearly everybody! "Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." At last there will be peace on earth which shall never end under the reign of the Son of God and prince of peace Himself! Today's wicked and vengeful men of war will be stopped at last as God "destroys them that destroy the Earth!" (Rev.11:18) Isaiah 2:10-21 "Enter into the rock and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of His Majesty." God's speaking of His enemies now, when Jesus comes! "The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the Lord ALONE shall be exalted in that day! For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up..." "And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up, and upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, and upon all the ships of Tarshish. And upon all pleasant pictures. And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day! And the idols He shall utterly abolish!"--Including the Image of the Beast of Revelation chapter 13, the Abomination of Desolation! (Rev.13:14-15; Mt.24:15; Dan.11:31) "And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of His Majesty, when He arises to shake terribly the Earth! In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; to go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of His majesty, when He arises to shake terribly the Earth!" (See also Rev.6:15-17, Lk.23:30) Are you saved and ready to meet the Lord of Hosts? There's only one WAY you can be ready. Jesus himself said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man come unto the Father, but by Me!" (Jn.14:6) "There is no other mediator between God and man, but the man
Christ Jesus." (1Ti.2:5) "No other name under Heaven given amongst men, whereby ye must be saved." (Ac.4:12) Only Jesus can save you! Some might say, "Well, you’re some kind of a religious fanatic! You're some kind of a narrow-minded religious bigot! You don't think the Jews and the Muslims and the Brahmins and the Buddhists and the Humanists and all the rest of these people are going to get saved, huh?" We didn't say that! We said they can all be saved through the One whom God gave to save them, through the only One who could bear their sins in His Own Body on the Tree (1Pe.2:24), on Calvary, the One Who took their punishment for them. You can ALL be saved, regardless of your religion, regardless even if you don't HAVE any religion! You don't HAVE to have religion!--All you need is JESUS! We’ve had too much religion in the world, too many religious wars, too many ceremonies, too many forms, too many temples, too many churches and not enough JESUS! (Jn.4:21-23) The marvellous wonderful prophecies of the Coming Kingdom of Christ on Earth are so juicy and so delicious! It's already begun in us, because Jesus said, "For the Kingdom of God cometh not with observation. For the Kingdom of God is WITHIN you!" (Lk.17:20, 21) It is in YOU if you have Christ in your heart! You're a member of His Kingdom! God has some terrible judgements to come, but he has some beautiful things going to happen too. In this class, we are studying mostly the Happy Ending. Well, it is not happy if you're wicked, of course, not happy if you're unsaved. But for us who love the Lord and obey Him and are members, citizens and officers of His Kingdom, we shall rule and reign with Him for one thousand years, praise God! It will be the kindest, fairest, most just government you ever had! Isaiah 4:2, 3 "In that day shall the Branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the Earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel."— Here is a reference to those survivors of the Battle of Armageddon. Israel will also have a remnant who is going to be saved! "And it shall come to pass that he that is LEFT in Zion"—the remnant that survive, the survivors whom the Lord has blessed by permitting them to live on into the Kingdom of God on Earth during the Millennium. — "and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem." You've got to be written in God's Book of Life, a Christian, a believer in Jesus!
Isaiah 4:4 "When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgement, and by the spirit of burning." God is going to burn and purge the spiritual filth out! If it takes the judgements of God to do it, He's going to DRIVE the iniquity out one of these days! Isaiah 11:1-10 Ah, here are some of the BEST verses of all, it's SO beautiful! The 11th Chapter of Isaiah: "And there shall come forth a Rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of His roots: and the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; and shall make Him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and He shall not judge after the sight of His eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of His ears: "But with righteousness shall He judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the Earth: and He shall SMITE the Earth with the rod of His mouth!"--That's going to be the rod of iron, the Truth of God that will rule the World then! "And with the breath of His lips shall he slay the Wicked." There is nothing that curbs the Devil and His crowd like the Truth, the Word of God! JESUS is going to be here then and He's the One it's talking about! "And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins, and faithfulness the girdle of His reins. "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them." You never heard about a wolf lying down with a lamb nowadays, did you?--Unless the lamb was INSIDE of the wolf! Or a leopard lying down with a kid, a little baby goat!--THEY usually lie down with the kid inside too! "And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together." Usually the lion is tearing them apart and eating them! Neither have you heard about a little child leading them all nowadays! Because there was a day before the flood when all the animals were at peace with man and with each other. They didn't fight and kill and eat each other as they do today. That day is coming again when there will be peace between man and the animals and you'll
be able to call them to you by name and they'll come running like your cat or your dog like pets, playfully. Even your little child will be able to play with them, think of that! "And the cow and the bear shall feed."--Feed together, think of that! Cow and bear! "What do you mean? Bears don't eat grass like cows!" Well, they eat berries and things like that! Why can't they eat grass? "Their young ones shall lie down together and the lion shall eat straw like the ox." Because if they're not going to eat each other or eat us anymore, what are they going to eat? They're going to have to graze like the ox and graze like the calf, praise God? From creation until the flood, man was strictly vegetarian, because God said specifically at the time of Creation that He had given them every green thing, the herbs and plants and so on, to eat--just vegetables--no meat or flesh of any kind. (Gen.1:29, 30.) But after the Flood, that pre-Flood cloud covering that enveloped the Earth disappeared and those deadly cosmic rays began to come through. Instead of living eight, nine hundred or a thousand years, all of a sudden their lifespans were greatly reduced, as they are today. And man's body apparently needed extra help to survive the ravages of both the judgements of God and the toll of sin, so God mercifully gave him meat to eat. (Gen.9:2, 3.) "And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp." A little baby that's not even weaned yet can play right on top of the hole of this terribly vicious, poisonous little serpent called an asp, and yet not get stung or bitten! "And the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den." The day is coming when you will be able to put your hands right into the cockatrice' den, a weaned child! Or in another place it says adders' den, meaning a poisonous snake! The child can put his hand right into a nest of adders and play with the snakes then, like toys! What a wonderful place to be, huh? All the curse removed, all the viciousness gone, all the killing and hurting each other gone. "For they shall not hurt nor destroy in ALL My holy mountain!" Since there's nothing that will hurt nor destroy, we think that there aren't going to be any more cars there, no
automobiles: cars are one of the greatest destroyers of mankind today, kill more people than anything else! In the millennial Kingdom of Jesus Christ there won’t be any of these stinking automobiles belching fumes anymore, or any of these big smoky smoke-belching factories! So they won't have to worry about oil anymore! And there should be no more thorns or thistles or any of the sort of things that came after the fall of man when God said the ground would be cursed and produce thorns and briars etc., to keep fallen man busy and out of trouble. (Gen.3:17-19.) This, of course, will be a great blessing to the natural flesh-and-blood men of the Earth who are still going to till the land and build houses. No doubt they will proclaim, "Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other! Truth shall spring out of the Earth; and righteousness shall look down from Heaven. Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase!" (Ps.85:10-12.) "For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea." We won't have to say, "Know the Lord!" for He says "all men everywhere shall know Me!" (Je.31:34; He.8:11) --But we do believe we'll still be teaching them the WAYS of the Lord! "And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people"--JESUS--"to it shall the Gentiles seek: and His rest shall be glorious." Praise God! Isn't that beautiful?--A wonderful, wonderful, beautiful picture of the final wonderful glorious days of this Earth! But the next verses don't sound so good for the unsaved: Isaiah.13:6-14 "Howl ye, for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt."--This is in the Judgements of God after Jesus has Raptured and taken His Church OUT of this World. Therefore, "they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman in childbirth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames! "Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not
give their light: the sun shall be darkened in His going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine."--It's will be so smoky you won't even be able to see the sun or the moon or the stars! "And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible! I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will SHAKE the heavens, and the Earth shall remove out of her place!"--It's not going to be taken away, but it will be jostled around! Well, itâ€™s going to be shaken out of its place then "in the wrath of the Lord of Hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger! And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land." There won't be any place to go for some of them, there won't be any refuge. There will be no place to flee because the whole Earth will become a disaster area under the awful judgements of God and the Battle of Armageddon! Which will it be for you? That awful ending, that Hell of an ending, Hell on Earth?--Or the beautiful Millennium, Heaven on Earth, the days when Jesus will judge the Earth righteously! The earth will blossom as a rose, curse removed, enmity between man and the animals and the insects and the vipers removed, so that all God's Creation is in perfect peace and beautiful harmony and at peace with each other, no longer man's cruelty toward man, no longer man's inhumanity to man, but all will be peace, glorious, beauty and the Garden of Eden restored!-Heaven on Earth once again as it was in the Beginning, because we'll have Jesus! Isaiah 24:23 "Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of Hosts shall reign in Mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before His ancients gloriously!" Oh, there're so many wonderful verses! Isaiah 25:6-9 "And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things." Here we're going to have that wonderful Marriage Supper of the Lamb! "A feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined." Praise God, the vineyards and wineries aren't going to go out of business!
"And He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations."--What veil? The veil of misunderstanding, the veil of unbelief, the veil of noncomprehension of spiritual things. "He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of His people shall He take away from off all the Earth: for the Lord hath spoken it." And we won't weep anymore! "No More Tears!" "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." (REV.21:4) "And it shall be said in that day, lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation. Whose side are you on? Who are you going to be with?--Those that are going to be weeping and wailing and gnashing their teeth as they see their World destroyed, in which they were rebellious, ignorant, defiant and disobedient to God?--Or are you going to be with those who rejoice over this new beautiful Garden of Eden, the Garden of God, the thousand-year Millennial Heaven-on-Earth rule of Jesus Christ! It will be a time of opportunity to again choose to serve the Lord and accept Jesus as the King of Kings, Ruler of all the Earth, a time of hearing of His Word, His Laws and of learning, obeying them. Those who do will be blessed, and those who do not will again be cursed and punished during that period, as well as thereafter in the case of the most rebellious and most recalcitrant, the most stubborn, the very most wicked, who though mercy is extended to them, as Isaiah says, "yet they will not learn righteousness" ISA.26:9-10 “With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.” We're going to teach a lot of people the ways of the Lord and to learn to love Him, that they might be saved. “Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.” And some will actually rise up again in rebellion against the Worldwide Kingdom of Jesus Christ and His Saints at the very end of the Millennium under the leadership of a released Satan in a last final horrible
Battle of Gog and Magog, a final destruction and separation of the most wicked and disobedient, from those who during the Millennium have received the Lord and His rule. So therefore the Millennium actually will be a second period of grace, and as some have called it, a first chance for those who deserve it, like the imprisoned spirits to whom Jesus preached after His crucifixion, (1 Pe.3:19-20) those who perhaps never really heard the Gospel or understood it or had adequate opportunity to believe it and receive it, but who will have definite clear-cut adequate opportunity to not only hear it, but see it in the Kingdom of God during the Millennium! ISAIAH 33:17, 20, 24 “Thine eyes shall see the King in His beauty: They shall behold the land that is very far off.” You know, the Lord went to prepare for us a City, and it's been very far off but will soon be nearby. “Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see (New) Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken!” The righteous City of God and His Kingdom on Earth are here forever, thank the Lord! “And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.” Just think, nobody is going to be sick any more amongst us, the Saints of God! ISAIAH 35:1, 2 “The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose! It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellence of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellence of our God!” Think of that!--The deserts are going to all turn green and beautiful with flowers and be as glorious as Lebanon once was, when it was covered with beautiful forests of giant fir trees, like Carmel and Sharon, two of the most beautiful parts of Israel even to this day! ISAIAH 35:6-10 …for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert! And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the
habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. No more deserts! The ground of the Earth itself will be healed! ISAIAH 40:5, 10-11 And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and His arm shall rule for Him: behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him. He shall feed His flock like a shepherd: He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness. A beautiful promise not only for the Millennium, but also for right now! ISAIAH 41:15-20 When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue failed for thirst, I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together: That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it. This is going to be one of the major ecological and geographic revamps during the Millennium, when God wipes out the deserts and make them blossom like the rose! ISAIAH 49:7b-13 Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the Lord that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and He shall choose thee. In other words, the nations shall fall down before us and serve the Lord. Thus says the Lord, in an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the Earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages; that thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Show yourselves. There will be no prisoners in the Millennium, no jails and nothing hidden!
They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places. They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor Sun smite them: for He that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall He guide them. Everyone will be provided for in the Millennium, and there will be no poor, for all shall have all their needs supplied by their own faithful labouring and the Lord. And I will make all My mountains a way, and My highways shall be exalted. Behold, these shall come from far: and, lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim (China). He seems to be speaking here of the re-gathering of the Jews to Israel during the Millennium, even from as far away as China, the land of Sinim. And if there's any place the Jews will want to go during that Heavenly period, it will be back to their homeland, Israel--at least to pay a visit. Sing, O Heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the Lord hath comforted His people, and will have mercy upon His afflicted. ISAIAH 55:6-7 Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. Thank You Jesus! That applies not only to the people who will turn to Him during the Millennium, but also to us today! ISAIAH 55:11-13 So shall My Word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an
everlasting sign that shall not be cut off! Praise the Lord! This is a picture of His people as they go out spreading His Word and winning souls for the Lord, today but also even more during the Millennium! Now here is one that is certainly about the reconstruction period at the beginning of the Millennium: ISAIAH 61:4-6. And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. Notice this does not apply to the new desolations, but to the old cities that had lain in ruins for years because of former wars. And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedresser. You see, we Saints will be like kings and priests unto the Lord and the Earthmen shall be our servants. But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves! ISAIAH 61:11; 62:2-5 For as the earth brings forth her bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations! And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name! Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God! Thou shalt no more be termed forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delighted in thee, and thy land shall be married! For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee. Sounds like the marriage of us, the Bride, to our Bridegroom Jesus, thank the Lord! For in the Millennium we shall be His Royal Family, and praised and honoured by all nations!
ISAIAH 65:18-25 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy! And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. 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! Here is another indication of how the Lord is going to wipe away all our tears, though we may start out with a few tears when we first get to Heaven. Also it indicates that people are going to live again much longer, the natural Earthlings. If they only live a hundred years they'll be considered a mere child, but the sinners or/and the rebels, will be accursed no matter how long they live! 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. Here's another hint that the millennial society of the Earthlings will be an agrarian farming society, and that the Lord will bless them for their labours. 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, says the Lord. That first part about the Lord answering prayer you can claim now, of course. But the rest is obviously Millennial, for the only way that the wolf and the lamb would lie down together today would be for the lamb to be inside the wolf!-And you don't believe lions could eat straw?--Well, just wait! And if there are any serpents, they're just going to eat dust and not our chicken eggs! Nothing shall hurt nor destroy in all His holy Kingdom! Praise God! Isaiah 66:18 For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see My glory! And it looks like the lord is going to allow visitors from all nations to come and see our glorious
City--at least from the outside! Although He does say that their kings will be allowed to bring their glory and honour into it.--Maybe after they get saved? Jesus is going to use people who lived godly lives who understand this world and its people to assist Him in running the world to come, governing it as it ought to be. God’s people will do their best to teach God’s love to those who have survived the horrible holocaust of the Plagues of the Wrath of God and the Battle of Armageddon. They will be among the administrators and judges who will oversee and adjudicate with God’s loving rules as their rulebook. And just where each of us is going to be and just how much each of us will be trusted with will depend a lot upon how faithful we are to Him and the job He's given each of us to do here and now! (See Luke 19:12-27, Mt. 25:14-30) Right now we are in training for the days when we will rule the earth!--But before we can do that, we must first learn to rule ourselves! So God is now having us sort of practice for what is going to be the real thing, and how well we do now is going to have a lot to do with how well we will do in the future. So remember, everything you’re being taught now, doing now and the decisions you’re making and the lessons you’re learning are all a part of your schooling and your training here and now so you can be greatly used by the Lord there and then! If not, a lot of it would be a big waste of time, except for what little we get done here, which isn't very much compared to what we will do then! So let's really try to learn our lessons today, learn to be faithful and obedient servants of the Lord now so He can trust and bless us with a place of blessing and usefulness to Him and others tomorrow, in the beautiful Kingdom of God on Earth during the Millennium!--When you and I will rule and reign with our King of kings, Jesus! Won't that be great? See you there! Compiled and edited by Gaetan
