“The Millennium, The Seventh Day” - Author Ron Nelson



BIBLE MEDITATION:

Genesis 2:2-3 “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”


ENCOURAGING WORD:

The topic of the Millennial Kingdom of God, where Jesus will rule and reign from David’s throne from the city of Jerusalem is a highly debated theological topic. I’m going to show visible and hidden evidence that it is going to come to fruition just as the Bible says, and it could be soon. First let me start out right away by sharing this Bible verse with you and then I’ll tie it in with what I believe it represents. It is the same verse that I used for my Bible Meditation. Genesis 2:2; “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.” We also need to read the following Bible verse that was spoken of by the Apostle Peter to get across why I see this as a hidden message from God. 2 Peter, 3:8; “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.” Think about this, God created the world in six twenty-four hour days as we read in Exodus 20:11; “For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.” We also need to tie this in with the next verse, which has this to say, Genesis 1:31; “And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.” Notice, the Bible says that it was evening and morning, which is evidence that it was literally six twenty-four-hour days. Now, let’s take what Peter says about a day being as a thousand years and a thousand years as being one day. We have just finished the six thousandth year since creation, but it in God eyes it is the sixth day. What comes after the sixth day, the seventh day which is the Sabbath day, the day of rest. For the last six thousand years we have had to labor our lives away except for Saturdays or Sundays depending on which day you celebrate as the Sabbath. We have now entered the seven thousandth year since creation or the seventh day according to God. The Millennial Kingdom we are being told will be a time of peace and rest like no other, as we read in Isaiah 65:20; ““No longer will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, Or an old man who does not live out his days; For the youth will die at the age of one hundred And the one who does not reach the age of one hundred Will be thought accursed.” We also read in Isaiah 11:6; “And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, And the leopard will lie down with the young goat, And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little boy will lead them.” That definitely sounds like a time of peace and rest to me. Then, after the one-thousand-year millennium is over, time on earth will be no more. The White Throne Judgement will take place and those that rejected Jesus will stand trail and be found guilty of every sin they ever committed because they did not receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and become born gain into the Holy Spirit. If you are part of this judgement, this is considered the second death where you will be thrown into the lake of burning fire for all eternity, and yes, I said, all eternity. Just to clarify something right up front, those that have died rejecting Jesus Christ are now in a place that is call Hades or Gehenna or more commonly known to us as hell. Those that have died without receiving Jesus Christ are there waiting for the final judgement, and no, this is not purgatory. Purgatory has never existed and never will for those of you that have accepted this lie to be true. There is saying that fits this truth and it goes like this, (If you are born once, you die twice, if you are born twice, you die once.) Therefore, we all need to be born-again so we don’t suffer the second death, which is eternity in “The Lake of Burning Fire” Do not take this lightly, one of these two scenarios will be in everybody’s future. Where you end up depends on you.


See, we are all born once, that obviously took place on the day that we were born. We are all children of God until we hear the gospel and then depending on how we receive it, that will depend on whether we are born again, or if we decide to become children of the world? If we reject the truth of the Gospel once we hear it, we still have time throughout our life to come to the Lord and become born again into the Holy Spirit, which is the second birth, which is also necessary to be saved. So, if you are only born once, which means you have not accepted the truth of Gods Word, you will die the second and final death which happens at the White Throne Judgement. If you are born twice, you will not be present at the White Throne Judgement because you will have no sins charged to you, because they have been paid for by Jesus Christ when He took our sins upon Himself, allowed Himself to be crucified on a cross, and in return, He gave us His righteousness. We call this the great exchange. That’s a quick explanation of what I am trying to get across. This was just a little sidetrack, so let me get back to my original message.


So, like I said, there are hidden messages and there are many messages in the Bible that are hard core evidence that Jesus Christ will rule and reign in Jerusalem from the throne of David for one thousand years. We need to hear this promise that The Angel Gabriel gave Mary, which we all know as the annunciation. We read this verse in Luke 1:32-33; “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.” Every church going person should have heard this verse spoken to them during the Christmas season regardless of what denomination you are from. Read for yourself, what does this say? If I’m reading this message right, and I am, it says that Jesus will rule from the throne of David forever. My question is this, has Jesus ever ruled from the throne of David. Absolutely not! This is not to be taken symbolically and allegorically as the mainline churches of today do!


How about this verse that we read in Revelation 20:4; “And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus (they are those that were beheaded during the Tribulation Period) and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.” What does it say? They lived and reigned with Christ for one thousand years. Once again, this is not to be taken symbolically or allegorically. It says what it means and means what it says. Therefore, we need to read the Bible for ourselves, so we can know the truth, not some religious fabrication of the scriptures.


Just so you understand where I am coming from, I was in one of these denominational churches for forty years, in which I learned very little, if anything, when suddenly one day, The Holy Spirit banged me upside the head and told me its time to know the truth and get into the Word of God. From that point on. I have studied the Bible seriously for about thirty years which brings me to the present. I don’t claim to know everything, nor can I even touch the surface of what God has instore for us, but the Holy Spirit has taken me aside and taught me everything that I need to know so I can help others know Jesus Christ. Not that I am a prophet or anything like that, which I am not, but I do understand how the prophets of old were rejected and condemned for trying to share messages from God just as the called ones of today are. The one thing that keeps me going regardless of what happens to me is in the following verse that was spoken by Jesus Christ, Himself. John 15:18-20; “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.” I will tell you right up front; I am not of this world; I am just passing through until my work here on earth is done and then I will be going home. My wish is that I can take as many with me as possible, but its not looking that way. But that makes sense when I read the following verse in Matthew 7:14; “Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Let me ask you this question, will you find the way, or will you remain an earth dweller which is in reference to the unbelievers of this world?


One more verse that I want to share with you that is in reference to the Millennial Kingdom of Jesus Christ. Zechariah 8:3-5; “Thus says the Lord: I will return to Zion, and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, The Mountain of the Lord of hosts, The Holy Mountain.’ “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Old men and old women shall again sit in the streets of Jerusalem, Each one with his staff in his hand Because of great age. The streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in its streets.” Notice, Jesus says “when He returns”, which means He was here once already. Does the gospel message ring a bell? Yes, of course it does if you have any knowledge of Bible history at all, you should know that. He was here before, which means, according to this verse that He is coming again, and that is during the Millennial reign of Jesus Christ.

Are you starting to get the picture. You need to stop listening to religious doctrine that’s been around for hundreds of years and get into the Bible so you can know the truth. The Holy Spirit will guide you in all truth if you confess that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior. If you decide to stay where you are, then you will be held accountable for that decision and be judged according to what you believe. Here is my closing verse to end with, Daniel 12:4; “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” We are living in the time that the Angel Gabriel told Daniel that knowledge will increase. Knowledge is increasing to those that have given their lives over to Jesus Christ and trusting in the Holy Spirit for truth. The rest are sticking with the doctrines of old instead of searching the scriptures that are know being revealed to us. Its quite incredible when you start to see things in the scriptures that you never saw before and the more you read and study the scriptures, the more knowledge you will be given.


Last note: Think about this, until 1948 when Israel returned to their Homeland and just as Jesus said they would, the Bible made no sense because the Bible is mostly about Israel. It had to be spiritualized and allegorized for it to make any sense, but know that Israel is in their own homeland, the Bible should now be read with clear understanding because Israel is in the own land and by the way, they will never be uprooted again regardless of what some are saying. So, I hope this message opens your eyes to truth. Remember, in the end, it is up to you what you choose to believe. This message was truly given to me by the Holy Spirit.
