AFTER THE THOUSAND YEAR REIGN. Revelation 19
The Thousand Year Reign is a phrase found in the book of The Revelation Of Jesus Christ. The book however opened up with and closed with the phrase “DO NOT SEAL THE PROPHECIES OF THIS BOOK FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND! Meaning it was happening to them back then. That the book of The Revelation would close with the same phrase to “DO NOT SEAL” because that book was meant for THAT generation and NOT US! And that time frame back then entered into a time of great peace and prosperity with this event described in Revelation 21.20. “Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. Meaning that after that time of great peace and prosperity, that Satan would have ANOTHER CHANCE to try and obscond with Gods creation and the people in it. If you are watching worldly events, it is obvious to conclude that we are in the time when Satan rules. Therefor we are in the time that “after these things he (meaning Satan), would be released for a little while for his last deception.
But more importantly what this shows is that Old and NEW Testament events that people call “prophecy”, meaning yet future, has little relevance for what happens AFTER the thousand year reign when Satan has his do over. Other than He is still Satan with the same tools, same methods and same demons, so there will be some similarities. But for us to try to re-present any of the assorted historical events people still call prophecies meaning yet future from earlier scripture is false and an abuse of Gods word. To try to figure out what is the next move for a second coming of Christ, is erroneous at best and a major distraction for what you are accountable for to God, which is to “work out your salvation”. Your completion should be your focus in scripture. (Ephesians 4.13)till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
The question is; if you are using Old or New Testament “prophecies” from Scripture to relate to today for some supposed return of Christ they are calling a “Second Coming”, and we say supposed because that phrase is non-scriptural. Meaning you can’t find it in the bible. And if you do believe in a second coming to fulfill events in the bible, what would you call Christs coming after Satans been bound for a thousand years then released and needing to be subdued again? His third coming? The truth be told, the phrase “The Second coming of Christ” is NOT in scripture! It is non-scriptuaral!
And also, If you are looking for Jesus to come and save again by way of “endtimes” and a “rapture”, what was the cross for? A form of saving? And if He saved us at the cross, and has to save others again to fufill the Revelation, then to save a third time AFTER the thousand year reign? THEN how many savings do you expect Him to do. This is all very confusing. It is The Cross that is the one time saving needed for all humanity, past present and future, PERIOD!
And another thing. Most Christians know John 3.16, but what about 3.17? “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him would be saved.” So what would second and third comings be for? And John 3.16 “that God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have Eternal life”. Isn’t that what it means to be saved? And if we have been saved, then doesn’t that include any future boogie men?
So you say you believe in the Jesus of John 3.16. Then what is His purpose to come again? We are not saying He does not come. We are challenging your expectations, because if you are expecting a “rapture” or some kind of a rescue, isn’t that a type of saving? And since we are warned of a “coming one”? “According to Satan?” Flat out! Who is your savior. And there is “the coming one whose according to Satan, with all lying signs and wonders if possible to deceive the Elect”. If this puzzles you, then think this overbecause “the coming one is with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, in order to be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. You have been warned!!
bThis is scary stuff! WHAT IF YOUR SECOND COMING JESUS IS THE LIE IF POSSIBLE TO DECEIVE THE ELECT? That they all may be condemned? To turn down the “Saviors saving of the cross in pursuit of another type of saving or rescue (same thing)? WHAT ARE ALL YOUR PREPARATIONS FOR? Is that going to save you till Jesus comes back?? In truth, all of your savings to keep you safe and to “save you” till some second coming Jesus comes, are ALL works of faithlessness. They are ALL acts of denial! “When Christ comes will He really find faith on earth??
Going to scripture to calculate the end of the world and how it effects you, puts you on the wrong side of the cross and leaves you to be saved by your own methods from whatever scary news that comes to threaten you. Satan knows this! That my friend is the work of Satan. To keep you feeling vulnerable. But God says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
Since this is true, then you can focus your attention on what really matters, which is your transformation, your transfiguration and the mandate to put on Christ, our New prototype to follow. That having been born again and born from above, let that be your focus. (John 3)
END TIME SEEKING IS USING ALL SCRIPTURE OUT OF CONTEXT.
We have a phrase for those who go to scripture for this. We call them disingenuous seekers. Like with the spies in the time of Rehab of whom she “sent them out another way” because they were looking for the wrong reasons. That is what end time seekers do. To try to reuse expired scripture to appease your carnal infatuations is an insult to the one time Saving of the cross and even borderline blasphemy! You have to resurrect old expired scriptures and enemies to make your case. End Times is NOT the purpose of scripture. But the salvation of your soul and to put on Christ is.
If you remeber in 1 Corinthians 15 Paul said that “flesh and blood does not inherit The Kingdom of God” but we say, the re-spirited mind of faith does.
THE CASE FOR THE THOUSAND YEAR REIGN OF CHRIST.
Jesus had told the disiples that “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of ALL THE NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. To every tribe, nation and tongue, or language. Think of Pentecost here.
The Law era that “was added to make sin exceedingly sinful” had ended with Christ, for promise to Abraham to come into fruition that he would be the father of many nations languages and tongues”. The law era with all its prophets are history with no future influence.
Put lower…We also have the pattern of sevens. That God created everything in six days then “Rested from ALL His works”. And as Peter wrote “ for a thousand years is as one day….
If you are a ponderer of scripture for truth, and you can entertain this claim that we are AFTER the Thousand Year Reign and in the final deception. Meaning that the same fallen angels who were bound for a thousand years to then be released again in the last, last days, and not before the thousand year reign, or there is two end times. To deceive the nations one last time is NOT to be misconstrued with previous prophecies. But it will happen in a similar way with the same tools and trends. That “a day with the Lord is as a thousand years 2 peter and Rev 21 add all 2 petros 3 at the end
This means that as they were imprisoned for that thousand years, remember they are NOT bound to a single life like us as evident by them stepping in and out of humans. So this means that they have had a whole thousand years in the belly of the earth, to re-think how to steal creation from God another time with the same tools they had before but with a little better idea on how to do so because they had such a long time to think about it, to ponder and conspire to do so.
Up till now, every end time preacher has been wrong. The test of a prophet is if what tgey say happens. If not, do not be afraid of them or their threats or scary presentations. And Paul said in Galatians “if anyone preaches another gospel to you then what you’ve heard, let him be cursed”.
This is why they cannot get scripture to fit any end time scenario. Because it is a repeat of expired events.
“Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.”
Meaning that they were the generation to recognize Christs Kingdom. And again “Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place”.
And again “The law and the prophets were until John the Baptist. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is pressing into it.
And more condemning are the words of Christ who said “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” And “unless one is born of water and the Spirit, they cannot enter the kingdom of God.
You have to understand that “The Kingdom of God is At Hand” is the replacement of that cheap manmade rendition called Jerusalem in that day, of which Jesus wept and said “Oh Jerusalem,43 For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, 44 and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another (just in case you think the Israel of today has any relationship to the one that Jesus walked in) because you did not know the time of your visitation.” Meaning that their time is over.
So even with Christs last attempt to save that generation, and He said “Assuredly, I say to you that this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.
The main point we are saying is that the “End Times” we are in are NOT like back then but in conjunction with 2nd Peters warnings.
And with John the Baptist as the last and the most important prophet to seal The Old Covenant, that“among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but those who are least in the kingdom of heaven are greater than he.
And with the beheading of the last and greatest prophet, the era of the prophets was officially closed to have nothing more to say, ever. That’s it. Don’t try to reapply scripture to our day. It will always be out of context.
Jesus told the 11 disciples to “go to Jerusalem and wait until you’ve heard from Me. Then at Pentecost with the dispensation of Gods Holy Spirit distributed there to every tribe language and tongue, thereby fulfilling Gods promise to Abraham that “in you shall all the nations of tge earth shall be blessed “to every tribe, nation and language. That “The Law was added to make sin exceedingly sinful”, and “the Law was added till faith comes” that the Old Testament, Will and Covenant inferred that a change was coming to expire and expire means fulfill, complete and put out of business. You cant put new wine in old skins!!
And with the disiples in the upper room and behind closed doors Christ appeared (out of no where) in their midst and said “be nit afraid”. Then they were instructed to “go ye tgerefor to the ends of tge earth preaching and teaching all things that ive instructed you. And if that Jerusalem? Christ cried “oh Jerusalem the one who stones and kills all the prophets and those who are sent to you. Behold, now this destruction is upon you”. And “NIT ONE STONE SHALL BE LEFT UPON ANOTHER THAT SHALL NOT BE CHURNED UNDER BECAUSE YOU DID NOT KNOW THE TIME OF YOUR VISITATION.
we will wrap up this discourse with Peters 2nd epistle. If you remember Christ called Peter a rock because that is what Petros (his Greek name) means. Not to diminish Christ as “The Chief Cornerstone that the builders (Jews) rejected, but still to put an importance in order of the twelve, for he had even finally came together with Paul who had corrected Peter in Galatians. Pauls testimony as being a pharisee from the “brood of vipers sons of Satan”. Paul had a longer way to go and the reason he had more epistles because he had further to develop in the faith and the reason he had the most epistles. Like Jacobs latter Pauls epistles are progressive. And we know Jesus was the fulfillment of Jacobs ladder when bbb said he saw the angels of God ascending and decending on the man/God Jesus. Well that is what Pauls writings were. And this took time for Peter to figure out too but in his second epistle he exonerates and rectifies with Paul. Meaning that Pauls progression from Satans den to rich understanding of the gospel was in stages so DO NOT TRY TO MAKE ALL HIS WORDS FIT GODS END OF THE AGE SCENERIO. But we will use Peters.
2 Peter 3 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of [a]us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 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 creation.” 5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and [b]perdition of ungodly men. 8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward [c]us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. The Day of the Lord 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be [d]burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for NEW heavens and a NEW earth in which righteousness dwells. Be Steadfast 14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot (from other end time scenarios) and blameless; 15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures. 17 You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.
And so say we “grow in the grace and the knowledge of the things of our Lord, Savior and His Image thst we are given scripture for, to become like Him, not so much as His man, but who He has returned to, being seated far above all pricipalities and powers and calls us to Himself as sojourners and pilgrims saying come up here. You epwere not left to flounder here on earth with the scarey images the mediums of Hell who broadcast there seeds of delusion on everyone with eyes wide open to them, while salvation passses you by. For st the end of this day of the final, and we mean after the thousand year reign, age, if we have not used scripture for what it is given, your transfiguration. Let us not be found as foolish stewards of the things of God, and like the wicked steward be found scorned for not having done what scripture has instructed us to do. To “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For if we do not participate in that, then weve disregarded Gods purpose for creation of making us in His image. That what creation was for, fell, and redeemed from and paid for on the cross, to “give you everything that pertains to life and godliness”. Yes the wheat and the tares mature together.
At the end of the book of The Revelation Of Jesus Christ was “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand!”
So for them it did and for us thats history and history repeats itself agter this but not exactly as before. So don’t try to make scripture fit your understanding because we were not given the chronology for the deception “after the thousand year reign”. Just know its the same demons with the same tools of deception.
But we we have this stern warning of a time when the door thats opened for your own transfiguration gets closed and the angel says: “ 11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him [a]be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”
But for now for a limited time “The Kingdom of God is at hand “
And He said to me, “It[a] is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 Those who overcomes [b]shall inherit all things, and I will be their God and they shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, [c]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 (and final) death.”
