Adams Millennium

God spoke to Adam at the tree of knowledge saying “in the day you eat of it you shall surely die. Adam died at 930 years and with God one day is as a thousand years. Adam died “in that day” in his millennium. The aspects of Adam and the fall are patterns of Christ.

We understand from Galatians 3.13 that the cross is regarded as a tree, “cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”.
Adam and that tree and that millennium signified a type of fruit from another tree and another millennium. We eat of the body and the blood of Jesus who is the fruit of the tree of life instead of the apple of death. In “that day” you eat of it you shall truly live. All who believe in the Son of God on the cross and His day of “in that day” have passed from death unto life. They are gifted with the millennium by faith, the 1000 year reign where they recon themselves dead to sin and the Adamic nature and alive to Christ. This is what Hebrews is referring to when it says “there remains a rest to the people of God”. A millennium meaning “in that day”, to be entered by faith.
It was at the cross the curse was reversed and a new humanity was born, a new creation. You see Adam was in an earthen vessel, made from mud, as are we. It is not necessary to wait for another day, hence “today” harden not your hearts. Peter said that baptism was “not the putting off the body but an answer of a clear conscience to God”. We don’t need a new body to pick up where Adam left off at the curse. We resume according to the plan right now. This is the Gospel!
When Joshua took them into the land and divided it, the physical promise of “the land” was fulfilled. However Joshua spoke of another day, the Holy Spirit signifying that “the land” was an eternal promise not a literal one.
Let me explain. In Christ’s day people called Him the “Son of David”. Well Solomon was the son of David, but because the promise was eternal and Solomon died, they received the son promise as spiritual.
The same way as the promise of the land. Because the promise was given “forever”, it could not have referred to this world which is passing away. The promise of “the land” was a picture and shadow of being “in Christ”. There is not one reference in the New Testament of “the land”. It was replaced for “in Christ”. He is the place where all promises are fulfilled.
Here again. The Lord calls Israel His firstborn son. (Ex 4.22) but is Israel really His Son? Not anymore than Joshua brought them to the land or Solomon was an eternal King. For God is spirit and He is truth and He seeks such to worship Him, like Adam before the fall. This is the reconciliation and the atonement, the gospel. Not a physical king or land.
So to be in Israel is being in the Son instead of Adam. Israel started as a people being the 12 tribes, then pictured as the land but the point is, We are in Israel and we are in the land and we are in the son we are in that day if we are “in Christ”
But this is where the rubber meets the road. This is where faith comes in. Because we can not see it and grab it or point to it, then we are in doubt. We do not believe. But God who calls those things that do not exist, as though they did, has put before us a choice. While we look not on the things that are seen, but the things that are unseen. That is right. For without faith it is impossible to please Him. If we can’t walk forward in this land of which I speak, we are doing the same thing the deniers of Joshua and Caleb and are classified with those in Hebrews 3.7-18
Adamites sins are acts of the body. The new mans sin is “unbelief” for whatever is not of faith is sin. We are judged by God on how well we can believe His word, regardless of what we see with our eyes. This is the land of faith.
When we read the old testament and the term “in that day” is read. It is not always referring to a singular day, the same time, but the same events that happens over and over and relates to the harvesting, not “a harvest”. It is futile to try to reconcile all the verses that say “in that day” to mean a literal single time. “In that day” is to get us to cross over from fact to faith, from physical to invisible.  For in reading the old testament there remains a veil, but it is taken off in Christ. Can you see it?
This is the confusion of the “science of eschatology”, to assume most scripture is open to be fulfilled. The pictures and patterns were laid out and fulfilled in their day, it left no need for it to happen again the exact same way. They too were pictures and patterns. The cycle of events will repeat themselves in this world as they always have. Think about it. There is no other topic so divisive to the people of Christ then “end times”. Where do divisions come from? We who then are risen with Christ should seek the things above, not on the earth.  The woes on earth are to make people look up, to awaken to faith and escape fear.
There is coming a day when the creation itself will be delivered from corruption to the glorious liberty we have right now. Yes we have been delivered from corruption(2 Peter 1.4) And yes the elements will burn with a fervent heat and all the earth and all it’s works will be burned up and our inheritance will be undeniable for we are absent in physicality but present in the invisible in the spirit by faith. It however is true, more so then what you see because it was and is and is to come. It is always.
Gal 6.14, God forbid that I should boast except in the cross (tree) of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom[a] the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation.16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.Not a physical people, not a physical place.
The Israel of God? Yes that is us. Those who are hidden in Christ, the new creation.



What is the millennium age?

What is the purpose of another earthly temple, especially a man made one. My question of the thousand years as a kingdom with Christ in the flesh is what I don’t understand. It would be a time that would require no faith and that is not like Him. Flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom, His kingdom is not of this world, and we wait for the kingdom or righteousness which can only be the New Creation at the time when creation itself is delivered from the corruption. Romans 8.19-21

The people behind the temple today reference the Ezekiel temple as their pattern, when it was a vision of the eternal. Anyway the weakness and un-profitableness of this age cannot correctly portray these things, hence we look for a city whose builder and maker is God.

Once again I don’t see Christ, Peter or Paul refer to an earthly kingdom between the Jewish temple and the Heavenly city, quite the contrary. I don’t believe there will be any partial re-establishment of the old Covenant and that’s what an earthly city/temple would be. He takes away the first to establish the second. I believe the thousand year points to a heavenly reality. Revelation 20 never says Christ’s reign on earth is in His physical Presence. Daniel refers to the courts being seated, are we not seated? Are we not invited to His rest? Are we not ambassadors of another kingdom?

The rest is the sabbath, which is also interpreted thousand year reign in scripture just once.

We have a minister of the true sanctuary and true tabernacle which the Lord erected, not man. He 8.2
His tabernacle is perfect. He 9.11
The heavenly Holy of Holies is denied with an earthly temple.
Christ after dealing with sin, sat down at the right hand of God waiting till His enemies are made His footstool.

I don’t believe He is coming back to wage war, for our weapons are not carnal/earthly. His work at calvary is complete so He sat down and this is the rest, sabbath,millennium, reign of Christ we are invited to

The book of Hebrews is replete with pleadings to let go of the shadows, images, and patterns. Why would the Lord return to that? Those things are to take us o Him, not bring Him back. It is carnal thinking that turns the work and promises of Christ into future events to happen on earth.
