101-7. WHAT will the 1000 year reign of Jesus reign be LIKE?


Chapter 7.

 

Not all Christians AGREE or teach the same thing concerning the 1000 year reign of Jesus that we are told about in Revelation chapter 20. Some Christians wrongly interpret the words “a thousand years” in Revelation chapter 20 as being an unspecified and unknown amount of time. In other words, some Christians CLAIM that 1000 years does NOT mean a LITERAL 1000 years. But they do not tell you WHY they INTERPRET the SPECIFIC number “1000” as NOT being a SPECIFIC number.

Now, the reason for WHY they interpret the number 1000 to mean ANY number of years is because they predicted that Jesus would return on a SPECIFIC date and their prediction did not come to pass. And thus, they INVENTED the teaching that Jesus must have returned INVISIBLY. And in order to make their new doctrine fit the Scriptures, then they had to “interpret” the LITERAL 1000 year reign of Jesus as being a NON-literal 1000 years. They still believe in the VISIBLE return of Jesus at the END of their so-called NON-literal 1000 year theory.

So then, HOW do we know for SURE which INTERPRETATION is the CORRECT sound Biblical interpretation? We COMPARE Scripture with Scripture in order to allow the Bible to interpret ITSELF. In other words, we search the Scriptures for some UNDENIABLE FACTS that do NOT need to be interpreted. And then, we interpret Revelation chapter 20 in the LIGHT of those undeniable facts found in other passages of Scripture.

So let us get started to learn what the REIGN of Jesus will be LIKE. And after we learn what the reign of Jesus will be LIKE, then we can compare that with what the world is LIKE right now to see IF Jesus is reigning over the earth right NOW. For you see, if the CONDITIONS of the world do not MATCH the conditions described in the Scriptures DURING the reign of Jesus, then Jesus is NOT yet reigning over the earth.

 

Let us begin with Isaiah 2:4.

 

“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: (Or the people of the nations will turn their weapons of war into farm equipment WHEN Jesus comes to JUDGE the nations) nation shall NOT lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn WAR any more.”

 

So clearly, Jesus has NOT returned “invisibly” as some Christians CLAIM! For you see, there are still WARS being fought in this PRESENT world. Let us compare the passage of Scripture we just read in Isaiah 2:4 with Micah 4:3 to learn WHEN there will be no more wars. Notice how the wording is almost identical, word for word, with Isaiah 2:4.

 

Micah 4:3.

 

“And he shall JUDGE among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: (Compare with Isaiah 2:4. “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:”) nation shall NOT lift up a SWORD against nation, neither shall they learn WAR any more.”

 

And the last part of Micah 4:3 is word for word the same as Isaiah 2:4, which says, nation shall NOT lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn WAR any more.”

 

Now let us read Micah 4:3 in its CONTEXT. Please notice that the FIRST DOMINION is prophesied to be given to ANOTHER called “O Tower of the flock”, who is NOT Yahweh Himself. Also notice that Yahweh will rule HENCEFORTH or HEREAFTER the FIRST DOMINION and Yahweh’s rule will be forever.

 

Micah 4:1-8.

 

“But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD (Or the house of Yahweh) shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. (Yahweh’s house is referring to the City of God, the New Jerusalem that will be stationed in the sky or in the orbit of the earth. The people who shall flow into the City of Yahweh will be the saints in Jesus Christ DURING this PRESENT world)

2.  And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, (Or many unsaved mortals left on the surface of the earth during the Millennial reign of Jesus will say, let us get saved so that we can also ascend up to the City of Almighty) and to the house of the God of Jacob; (Or more correctly, let us go to Jacob, the God who Yahweh set over the earth) and he will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law (Of Yahweh) shall go forth of Zion, (The City of God in the sky or AIR) and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. (The earthly city that Jesus will rebuild, according to Amos 9:14,15, Acts 15:16, Psalm 89:35-37, and Isaiah 45:12,13) 

3.  And he shall JUDGE among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their SWORDS into plowshares, and their SPEARS into pruning hooks: (Or the people of the nations will turn their weapons of war into farm equipment WHEN Jesus comes to JUDGE the nations) nation shall NOT lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. (Speaking of no more learning WAR DURING the 1000 year reign of Jesus. For you see, AFTER the reign of Jesus comes to an END, then Satan will be let loose out of his prison in the bottomless pit. And for a little season, Satan will DECEIVE the nations to wage a WAR against the people of God and the earthly city of Jerusalem that will be rebuilt during the 1000 year reign of Jesus. And that FINAL WAR that will take place AFTER the 1000 years is finished will be the final piece of evidence to clear Yahweh’s NAME and prove that Lucifer falsely blamed Yahweh for creating him with a sinful rebellious nature. So then, DURING the 1000 year reign of Jesus, glorified immortal saints in the City of God and the mortals down on the surface of the earth will NOT learn WAR any more until the 1000 years are finished)

4.  But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; (The vine speaks of faith in Jesus. And the fig tree speaks of natural Israel, the Jews) and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken it.  

5.  For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever. (In verse 5, we see two different groups of people. We see one group called “all people” and the other group called by the pronoun “WE”. The “all people” group are those left alive in their MORTAL bodies after the wrath of God has been poured out by Jesus and the saints, according to Psalm 149:5-9. And the “WE” group are the glorified immortal saints. The context in Micah chapter 1 is about what Yahweh revealed to Micah concerning Samaria and Jerusalem. The word “Samaria” means the “WATCH station”, which speaks of the “watchers” over the earth. And the word “Jerusalem” means those “founded PEACEFUL”, which speaks of the inheritors of the earth. So the context leading up to Micah chapter 4, is the EVIL influence of the watchers, the fallen angels growing to a point that is no longer going to be tolerated by Yahweh)

6.  In that day, (Speaking of the last days when wickedness will increase and not one more unsaved person will seek to be saved by faith in Jesus, according to Psalm 14:1-3) says the LORD, will I assemble her that halts, (Speaking of the REMNANT of Israel REJECTING Jesus as their Messiah) and I will gather her that is driven out, (Speaking of the rapture of the church) and her that I have afflicted; (Speaking of the wrath of God on Israel for REJECTING Jesus as their NEW COVENANT)

7.  And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: (Speaking of the church being rejected not only by unsaved Israel but also being cast off by the unsaved in all the world. And also speaking of natural Israel that is cast off by the world) and the LORD shall reign over THEM in mount Zion from HENCEFORTH, even for ever. (The pronoun “THEM” is referring to ALL of the SAVED, both the saved during this PRESENT world and those who shall be saved during the world to come. And the phrase “HENCEFORTH and forever” is referring to the New Heaven and the New Earth AFTER the 1000 year reign of Jesus that is called the FIRST DOMINION in the following verse)

8.  And you, O tower of the flock, the stronghold of the daughter of Zion, unto you shall it come, even the FIRST DOMINION; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.”

 

In other words, Jesus will rule as God over the earth for 1000 years, which is called the FIRST DOMINION. Then Jesus will commit the Kingdom back into the hands of Yahweh the Father, who will rule over the earth HENCEFORTH and forever, according to 1 Corinthians 15:20-28. And according to Proverbs the NAME of Yahweh is our strong TOWER and the NAME of Yahweh is His Messiah, Jesus.

 

Proverbs 18:10.

 

“The NAME of the LORD is a STRONG TOWER: the righteous run into it, and are safe.”

 

In other words, the righteous IN Jesus are EXALTED and set in heavenly places on high. And, according to Isaiah 11:11, Almighty God the Father will turn again to Israel a second time to deliver the REMNANT of Israel left alive after the 3 1/2 years of the great tribulation followed by the WRATH of God. And that second time will be  DURING the 1000 year reign of Jesus.

Here are some more passages of Scripture that teach us WHAT the 1000 year reign of Jesus will be LIKE.

 

Isaiah 11:6-11.

 

“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

7.  And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox

8.  And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den

9.  They (Speaking of every living creature, animal or human) shall NOT hurt nor destroy in ALL my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. 

10.  And during that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. 

11.  And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.”

 

 Isaiah 62:20-25.

 

“There shall be no more at that time an infant of days, nor an old man that has not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old (In other words, there will be NO MORE premature deaths caused by Satan and the age of man shall be a full 100 years) but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. 

21.  And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. 

22.  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. 

23.  They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. 

24.  And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear

25.  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 of my holy mountain, says the LORD.”

 

Also, it seems that the roles in society will FLIP so to speak. In other words, those who oppressed the Jews in this present world will now be the SERVANTS to the Jews. To say this another way, the Jews will become the HEAD and no longer be the TAIL.

 

Deuteronomy 28:13.

 

“And the LORD shall make you the HEAD, and NOT the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall NOT be beneath; if that you hearken unto the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day, to observe and to do them:”

 

Even though the unsaved Jews will suffer the WRATH of Yahweh at the coming of Jesus, God will lift His wrath and leave Himself a REMNANT of His chosen people Israel. Yahweh will cause Israel to arise and shine during the DAY of the Lord, according to Isaiah 60:1- which you can read on your own. I will only quote a few verses.

 

Isaiah 60:8-12.

 

Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows? (Speaking of the many chariots of Yahweh that have gathered all of us IN Jesus Christ in this PRESENT world caught up to meet Jesus in the AIR at his coming) 

9.  Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring your sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the LORD your God, AND to the Holy One of Israel, because he has glorified you. (I am seeing that Tarshish is a figure of the United States of America. Remember in Revelation chapter 12 that the woman, Israel, being persecuted by Satan will be carried by two wings of an EAGLE to the wilderness where she will be FED and protected for 3 1/2 years during the great tribulation.

10.  And the sons of strangers shall build up your walls, and their kings shall minister unto you: for in My wrath I smote you, but in My favor have I had mercy on you

11.  Therefore, your gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto you the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought. (In other words, the treasures of the UNJUST are laid up for the JUST in the world to come)

12.  For the nation and kingdom that will NOT SERVE you shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.”

 

So basically, the PURPOSE for the 1000 year reign of Jesus during the world to come is threefold. And we will take a look at the THREE purposes for the 1000 year reign of Jesus in chapter 8 called 101-8 THREE REASONS for the 1000 year reign of Jesus!
