All about the Millennium – Part Three
The Millennium is also a day of rest. The same three Millennium scriptures in (Is.2:2-4) are also in (Micah 4:1-3) but a fourth vs. is added. “But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid.” God is telling us that the Millennium is a time of rest and peace and safety – “Thou shalt take thy rest in safety” – (Job.11:18). Sitting under our tree enjoying the 1000 year Sabbath Day. The curse of working that God placed upon Adam and Eve will be no more. No more laboring for bread and babies.
There were six literal days of creation after which God rested the seventh day from His work and then He blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, or made it holy and He taught His people of Israel to do the same – (Ex.20:8-10). Certainly God didn’t rest because He was tired, rather, He wanted to provide us a pattern or blueprint for our health and well being. But it was also a pattern of the ages. Peter said in (2 Pet.3:8) about the second coming of Christ to set up His millennial kingdom – “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” So we must not be ignorant of the 1000 year Sabbath Day Millennium.
There were about 4000 years from God’s creation of Adam to the birth of Christ and about 2000 years since Christ’s birth or 6000 years or six days. The soon coming Millennium will be the Seventh Day, the 1000 year Sabbath Day of rest and peace and safety, a time of holiday from work. We could call it a Holy-day or ‘Labor Day’ amen. “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God” – (Heb.4:9). And the only way you can get this rest is by being born again through Christ. “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest for your souls” – (Mt.11:28,29). The older a person gets, the more heavily laden they become with sin – (2 Tim.3:6).
Christ is referring to being burdened with sin. “Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity…” – (Is.1:4). My friend, sin is too heavy for you to carry alone. The only place you can put that burden is on Christ on the cross. He bore it for you, and He invites you to come and bring your burden of sin to Him. He is our sin-bearer, our scapegoat and atonement for sin.
The Sabbath Day Millennium is also a holy day, a hallowed day. This whole earth will be “holiness unto the Lord.” Halloween means (all hallowed day evening). We are entering into the Halloween of history, the great tribulation and the time of Antichrist just before the holy day of the Millennium. The darkest part of Halloween is soon to come. Sorcery and witchcraft is exploding across the world especially through Harry Potter, Satan’s wizard. Sodomy and abominations of all kind flood the land. But then at Armageddon King Jesus comes to set up His Holy Sabbath Day of righteousness worldwide.
There will also be a one-world language during the Millennium – “For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent” – (Zeph.3:9). There will be one language on earth, not hundreds, so that people won’t be divided but will be united with one consent. It will be a great means of unifying people and loving one another. We will with one language and one accord, call upon the Lord Jesus and serve Him. To speak in different tongues is to put a wall and a barrier, a division between people. Not being able to understand one another’s speech is a barrier and a wall that is higher and more effective in dividing people than any border or wall between nations. Speaking different tongues tends toward hatred between people – it divides, not unites.
When building the
One language in the Millennium will be a great aid in unity and understanding between people; to live and serve the Lord together. And it will be a pure language not a filthy language like now, no blasphemy against the Trinity will be permitted; no vile or vulgar words. Then will be fulfilled (Col.3:8) – “But now ye also put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.” O my, after 6000 years of blasphemy against God and filthy communication on this earth, the language is cleaned up. All speaking, and singing and writing will be pure. There will be one pure language on earth – only one.
Speak to Me Only of Jesus
Speak to me only of Jesus, tell of the cross that He wore,
Tell of the shame and the sorrow, tell of the burden He bore.
Speak to me only of Jesus, tell of His grace day by day,
Tell how the blood of atonement washes my guilt all away.
Speak to me only of Jesus, tell of His wonderful love,
Tell how He came as a Savior, down from the glory above.
Speak to me only of
Jesus, dying on
Speak to me only of Jesus, His name is so precious to me.
There will be worldwide unity in the Millennium. There will be a one-world religion (Christianity) and a one-world government (theocracy) rule by the Son of God. The Lord Jesus will be both the political ruler, King of Kings and the religious ruler, the high priest. He will rule as the head of both church and state – (Zech.6:13). Just consider the unity of just one religion and one government for the whole earth.
There will be one set of international laws, enforced one way, the
judgments being the same worldwide. They will have one law book, God’s Holy Bible, that will be enforced with a rod of iron. “For out of
All the rulers of the world will have the same unity of the Holy Spirit, for we are all one body, the body of Christ – (I Cor.6:17 and 12:8-26). All the rulers of the world will also have one heart that loves the Lord Jesus, with one unity of the same faith with the same fear of the Lord – “Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name” – (Ps.86:11). This will happen in the Millennium. We rulers are all brothers and sisters and belong to the family of God so it is very easy to join in affinity with one another – “perfectly joined together” – (I Cor.1:10).
For 6000 years the world has been ruled by the wicked with the spirit of
the world that doesn’t want righteous and holy laws and enforce them and they
hate the born again Christian who fears God and hates the evil. Well, during
the Millennium the tide will turn. The saints will rule and judge the world
with the unity of the Holy Spirit in a righteous, holy world. This world will
be united in Godliness, not in sinfulness like at the
Have you been born again and baptized by the Holy Spirit and united with the Father and His beloved Son? Are you united by the Holy Spirit with the body of Christ? Are you saved by Christ from your sins and hell? Born again describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved. You become a new creature in Christ. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” – (2 Cor.5:17). Jesus said – “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” – (Jn.3:6,7).
Repent of your sins and believe on Christ in your heart by faith and you will receive forgiveness of sins and become a saved, born again creature in Christ. You will be destined for eternal life instead of eternal death in the lake of fire. You will be destined to rule and reign on this earth with Christ in a glorified body during the Millennium and then for eternity. O do not spurn the love and grace of God in His dearly beloved Son on the cross.
