Heretical Teachings about the Millennium and the Truth

 

 

     ►► From the Southwest Radio Ministries   (Since 1933)

 

     "Those who argue against the animal sacrifices in the Millennial Temple because of the completed sacrifice of Christ are guilty of faulty reasoning. They reason that, prior to the death of Christ, the animal sacrifices were the means that God had appointed for the taking away sin. Consequently, the death of Christ removed the need for animal sacrifices."

 

     Actually, what we have here is faulty Bible knowledge from the Southwest Radio Ministries. Take these Scriptures, for instance.

 

     Hebrews 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. KJV

 

     If animal sacrifices provided for the remission of sins, there would have been no need for the birth of Christ because that was the primary reason for His birth and death. How can someone preach on the radio for 86 years and not know that little truth?

 

     Well, they DID understand that little truth because in the next paragraph they say this:

 

     "However, animal sacrifices never took away sin."

 

     That kind of teaching does nothing but confuse someone looking for understanding. You can’t teach it both ways. It DOES remove sin; it DOESN’T remove sin.

 

     ►► From the Salem Web Network

 

     "At its inception, those believers who survive the Tribulation will enter the kingdom in their natural bodies. They will have natural children, all whom will be born in sin, some of whom will reject God.

 

     "Those believers who survive the Tribulation will enter the kingdom". Totally erroneous. It’s not who survives the tribulation, it’s those that have never had an opportunity to hear or receive the truth, THEY will be the ones to enter and participate in the Millennium.

 

     By this time, the believers are already in Paradise, awaiting the great day of Judgment. For them, it will be rewards and not punishments.

 

     They go on to quote Matthew 25:31-34 to substantiate their belief that we will be in our natural, earthly, flesh and blood, bodies during that time. 

 

     Matthew 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

 

   Matthew 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

 

     Matthew 25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

 

     Matthew 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: KJV

 

     Within those four verses, I see nothing that indicates that we will be in our “natural” body. What happens when the Son of man shall come in his glory? Let’s read what St. Paul writes about it:

 

     1st Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, KJV

 

     The word sleep is a euphemism for “to die” or “be dead”.

 

      Sleep_NT:2837 koimao (koy-mah'-o); from NT:2749; to put to sleep, i.e. (passively or reflexively) to slumber; figuratively, to decease:

 

     So, let’s read this verse again with that in mind…We shall not all die or be dead, but we shall all be changed.

 

     Paul continues with the next verse:

 

     1st Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. KJV

 

     Do we receive a change of clothing? Nope. We receive a change of bodies; we go from our earthly body into our spiritual body.

 

     1st Corinthians 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. KJV

 

     Our earthly, our flesh and blood bodies are corruptible while our spiritual bodies are incorruptible. At the instant that our Lord sets His feet on the Mount of Olives, we will instantly change from our flesh and blood body to our spiritual body.

 

     Do we have the sequence of events straight in our minds? Let’s quickly go through them:

 

            We’re living our daily lives as usual in our earthly bodies.

 

            Then comes the five-month tribulation of Satan/Antichrist. We are still in our earthly bodies.

 

            Our Lord returns, and we’re changed from our earthly body into our spiritual body. This is also the first day of the Millennium.

 

      So, during the Millennium we are in spiritual bodies and not flesh and blood bodies.

 

     All natural entities have been done away with and will never return. We are all in spiritual bodies and therefore there WILL NOT be children born during the Millennium because spiritual bodies DO NOT PRODUCE CHILDREN.

 

     During this lifetime Father required that we be married, a man and a woman, before we produced a child. That will change because we are now in spiritual bodies. Matthew gave us some information on whether we will marry and have children when in a spiritual body:

 

     Matthew 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. KJV

 

     Have you read anywhere in the Bible that angels had babies? Not in my Bible. Having children was only for those in flesh and blood bodies because that’s how Father created more human beings in which to instill a soul and spirit.

 

     There will be NO children born during the Millennium nor during the Eternity. And as far as them being born with sin, if it were possible to have children during that time, whose sin would be attached to them? The sins of Adam? Nope.

 

     Let’s read some verses from both the Old and New Testaments concerning the sins of other people:

 

     2nd Kings 14:6 But the children of the murderers he slew not: according unto that which is written in the book of the law of Moses, wherein the Lord commanded, saying, The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, nor the children be put to death for the fathers; but every man shall be put to death for his own sin. KJV

 

     And,

 

     Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. KJV

 

     And,

 

     Jeremiah 31:29 In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge.

 

     Jeremiah 31:30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge. KJV

 

     Even if children could be born they would NOT be born with sin on their souls.

     "The millennial kingdom is the time when Christ will rule on the earth before the heavens and earth are destroyed."

 

     Why did Father create this earth to begin with?

 

     Isaiah 45:18 For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else. KJV

 

     He formed it to be inhabited, for spiritual and earthly beings to live on it and understanding the three heaven/earth ages will remove all doubt as to whether this earth will be here forever.

 

     2nd Peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

 

     2nd Peter 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

 

     The FIRST heaven/earth age,

 

     2nd Peter 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. KJV

 

     The SECOND heaven/earth age in which we are now living.

 

     2nd Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. KJV

 

     The THIRD heaven/earth age where all unrighteousness, sin, and corruption are gone forever. Let’s go to Proverbs and read of what it was like in the first heaven/earth age and we’ll let Wisdom speak to us:

 

     Proverbs 8:22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

 

     Wisdom was with our Father before He created anything.

 

     Proverbs 8:23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

 

     Before the earth was ever created.

 

     Proverbs 8:24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.

 

     In that first age, there were no oceans, lakes, streams or water of any sort. The water we see today formed the firmament that surrounded this beautiful globe.

 

     Proverbs 8:25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:

 

     There were no mountains in that first age, no hills.

 

     Proverbs 8:26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

 

     Nothing had yet to be created.

 

     Proverbs 8:27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

 

     The creation of the heavens and water taken from the firmament and placed on the surface in this present age. Wisdom is talking about this current age, the second heaven/earth age.

 

     Proverbs 8:28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

 

     There are no clouds if there is no water, this present age.

 

     Proverbs 8:29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

 

     As the mountains emerged from the surface the higher land kept the oceans and lakes in their own boundaries, water no longer covered the entire earth.

 

     Proverbs 8:30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

 

     Wisdom stood with Him as He was pleased with His creation.

 

     Proverbs 8:31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men. KJV

 

     And men and women began to live on this earth and it pleased Him very much. Now, let’s read of the third and final age and where it will be:

 

     Revelation 21:21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

 

     New because we are going into the third and final age. And as it transitions in, it will be just like the first heaven/earth age because there will be no seas or oceans or lakes or streams. The water will revert back to the firmament and protect all souls.

 

     Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

 

     The new Jerusalem is coming from where? Heaven. And it’s going to come down onto what? On another planet? Nope. It’s coming down right here on earth.

 

     Revelation 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. KJV

 

     Our Father will be residing in that new Jerusalem and it will be forever, right here on Mother Earth, because it’s the eternal age.

 

     So, no, the heavens and the earth will NOT be destroyed. Why in the world would Father destroy the vastness of space and all that it contains and this beautiful globe as well? Ridiculousness in its highest form.

 

     ►► From the Active Christianity website

 

     "People will live much longer lives than they do now. In spite of all of this, the sinful nature that is inherent in all of mankind will not have changed."

 

     I am absolutely amazed by the ignorance of some of these religious organizations and the lies that they spread. I mean, people do web searches, looking for the truth, and this is the garbage that they end up reading.

 

     There are no PEOPLE in the Millennium, we’re all in spiritual bodies at that time! People indicates flesh and blood bodies and they will not be there.

 

     There is no SINFUL NATURE during the Millennium. Satan is locked in the pit for this time so there is no way that he can tempt us. You can’t run around on your wife because there is no sex or marriage in the Millennium. You can’t get drunk or rob a bank or murder someone. We are no longer in flesh and blood bodies.

 

    ►► From the Liberty University (Jerry Falwell, Jr.)

 

     "The millennium will return history to a time when Israel will be God’s mediatory people but will also continue to be a time in which sin will be present upon the earth. Thus, God will include a new Temple, a new priesthood, a new Law, etc., at this future."

 

     Don’t these people ever read the Bible? I’m not a Biblical scholar nor do I know and understand the languages by which it was written. I’m just a redneck living up in northwest Georgia.

 

     Why is it so difficult for people, the so-called religious leaders, in particular, to understand that there will be no sin during the Millennium? The time of human life is over, Satan is locked in the pit for these thousand years, so he cannot tempt us, the desires of the flesh no longer exist because flesh no longer exits.

 

     And this comes from JERRY FALWELL. An absolute joke when it comes to understanding the Scriptures. If this is what they teach at HIS university, it’s no wonder why so many don’t understand the truth of our Father’s Word.

 

     The Lord Himself has to return before the Millennium begins and at the moment that He sets foot on this earth we will all be changed into spiritual bodies:

 

     1st Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. KJV

 

     Changed into what? OUR SPIRITUAL BODIES! What else? It seems that religion wants to continuously accuse us of being worthless sinners and only by going to THEIR CHURCH can you learn the truth and be saved.

 

     I could go on and give example after example, but I think that you get the point. There is so much religious garbage being taught out there, in churches and on the net, that it’s no wonder why people believe these lies.

 

     And I’m not letting anyone off the hook. If you are too lazy or too stupid to read and understand the Bible for yourself, if you want to let some idiot or crackpot religion or preacher take YOUR soul into the Lake of Fire with him, then have at it.

 

     We’re going to find animal sacrifices being written about as we get into the Millennial chapters of Ezekiel, chapters 40 through 48. There’s been quite a bit of discussion and dissension among religious scholars and leaders as to whether these chapters should be taken as having literal meaning.

 

     Hebrews chapter 10 says that our Lords’ death on the cross ended all bloodshed through animal sacrifices. His blood was sufficient to cover all human beings. This in itself must tell us that a literal translation of the blood sacrifices in Ezekiel chapters 40-48 is not possible.

 

     Hebrews 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. KJV
 

     Secondly, there will be no flesh and blood humanity or fleshly animals in the Millennium so what would there be to sacrifice? 1st Corinthians 15:52 tells us explicitly that when our Lord returns that we will all be changed into a spiritual body. St. Paul goes into quite a bit of detail to explain to us the difference between an earthly body and a heavenly body in chapter 15.

 

     To make these sacrifices to be literal, the religious community must believe that we will still be in flesh and blood bodies during that time and the examples I've given above prove that beyond a doubt.

 

     If that is true, then 1st Corinthians 15:52 is a lie and that cannot happen. If we have to spend our time trying to decide which parts of Scripture are true or not, then why even open the Book and read it?

 

     1st Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. KJV

 

     And because the religious leaders WANT to believe that these sacrifices are literal, they will quietly try to say that the Bible contradicts itself by using a lot of fancy words that mean nothing to common people, such as you and me. That is a lie unto itself.

 

     Nothing that has ever happened since the time when our Father created our souls for His pleasure and company, will ever be forgotten or done away with. Therefore, I have to believe that the sacrificial offerings during the Millennium are a carry-through of old Mosaic law from the time of flesh and blood bodies to the time of spiritual bodies. It has to be brought to remembrance..

 

     Hebrews 10:3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. KJV

 

     When the Millennium begins, the time of earthly creations is over. It has served its purpose. There can be no sin during that time because our Lord will be present there and sin cannot occupy the same space with Him.

 

     If you read 1st Corinthians 15:50 it will tell you that flesh and blood cannot enter into the Kingdom of heaven, which includes the presence of Christ.

 

     1st Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. KJV

 

     There will be NO flesh and blood animals TO sacrifice in the Millennium. Therefore, it must be symbolic, as most of the book of Revelation is symbolic in nature.

 

     So, as physical circumcision, mandated by our Father for the Israelites in the Old Testament, has graduated to spiritual circumcision of the heart with the death of our Lord on the cross, so it is with animal sacrifices during the Millennium.

 

     Flesh and blood sacrifices mandated by our Father in the Old Testament has graduated to the blood of Christ being sufficient to cover and remove all sin.

 

     Animal sacrifices in the Old Testament never removed or forgave sin in the first place so what was the purpose of doing them? To show our Father how much we loved Him by OBEYING His ordinances and statutes and instructions.

 

     Father never liked blood sacrifices to begin with, but He had to find a way of making us take something, take a possession that we really liked or that we could sell for money, and with free will and love, sacrifice it to Him. David wrote in Psalms 51 that he knew that He didn’t like sacrifices or burnt offerings:

 

     Psalms 51:16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. KJV

 

     It’s not that difficult to study and learn the truth of what happens during the Millennium. The insidious part is when someone that is looking for knowledge comes across web sites such as these, takes what they read as gospel, and may go through the rest of their lives believing these lies.

 

     Never listen to any man or woman, including this one, without finding out for yourself whether what they are teaching is the truth or not. Yeah, it’s going to take some time and effort on your part to do that and most people will not do it.

 

     Time, time, time. We live in a time of instant gratification. Data has to be delivered faster and faster to our devices; news must be instantaneous. And that has a positive effect on us because when Satan/Antichrist stands in Jerusalem claiming to be our Lord Jesus Christ, we want to know about it as quickly as possible.

 

       I'm going to close this out by saying that after these thousand years comes to a close, Satan will have another "short season" by which he will tempt those that have been taught and disciplined. No one gets a free ride into the Eternity.

 

     Revelation 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. KJV

 

     He cannot tempt anyone DURING the thousand years but he will have a five-month period AFTER those thousand years are over to do just that. And when that is complete, then comes the Judgment. 

 

     There is no mention of any kind of body change because that happened long ago when our Lord returned.
