When Does The Millennium Start?
I did a Google search this morning using the key words…
”How Soon is Christ’s Return.”
And I chose the first result at the top of the list so as not to pick favorites.
This preachers’ response was..
”Christ’s return may not be one thousand years off because the Millennium comes after His return.”
What is the truth? Christ's return will NOT be a thousand years away and the Millennium begins WHEN He returns.
Bear in mind that this gentleman is the chancellor of a Bible College and Seminary and has written over fifty books.
And, of course, the words of established religion come out like bats after sundown..
Amillennialism, Premillennialism, and Postmillennialism.
And the words that really distressed me is…
“They come to life and reign with Christ for one thousand years.”
Come to life from what? From being dead in the grave for all these years?
Why does man, why does religion, have to make things so complicated? Neither our Father nor Christ made things complicated. As far as coming to life, life never left them.
It’s true, the flesh and blood bodies go into the grave, into the casket, and will remain there until it decomposes back into the minerals from which it was made but, at the time of death, Father tells us that our soul and spirit go immediately back to Him, the Creator of it.
Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. KJV
There’s 21 words in that verse and it explains, quite well, that the flesh and blood body returns to the dust of the earth and the soul and spirit returns to God who gave it in the first place. I know that it doesn’t say the word soul, but you cannot have a soul without a spirit, you cannot have one without the other.
Just like you cannot have an earthly body with out a beating heart. One cannot be without the other. The soul cannot be without the spirit.
How difficult is that to explain? It's not and therein lies the workings of Satan for this earth. This time that we're living in, this dispensation, is his to own, his playground. Every time I hear the word church it makes me sick. It's the church, the synagogue of Satan himself, that's going to destroy so many of our Father's children, their souls. Misleading them into the very arms of Satan.
Of the seven churches written of in Revelation only two of them were teaching what was pleasing to our Father and what was that? They were teaching of the synagogue of Satan, the Kenites.
The church is where the birth of many lies, rebuking our Father's truth, have their beginning. Read the Bible, for heavens' sake, you won't find the word rapture anywhere in it. It's a fabrication of mankind. The vision of a woman in Scotland back in 1830.
So, what are the steps, what is the process by which Father ends this time in these bodies and we go into the Millennium and then the eternity?
Life will be existing just like it has for thousands of years. We’ll be going to work, kids going to school, going on vacation, all the things that humans have been doing for centuries.
The first sign that things are changing is that the two witnesses will begin to prophesy the return of our Lord and they will do it from Jerusalem. It will seem that they just came out of nowhere because the 1260 days of prophesying has been reduced to a 5-month period and they will begin their testimony ten days, approximately, before the appearance of Satan in his role as the Antichrist, who will appear in Jerusalem as well.
Revelation 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. KJV
There's the change from 7 years to the 5-month period of tribulation.
Let's look at 2nd Thessalonians, chapter 2 , to see the coming of Satan as the Antichrist.
2nd Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
This falling away and the appearance of Satan as the Antichrist will happen one right after the other. Satan has to appear, looking just like the True Messiah, for that apostasy to happen. The transferring of your love for the True Christ over to the fake christ, is what the apostasy is.
2nd Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. KJV
There you have it from the mouth of our Father...shewing himself AS God, an imitation, a false representation.
What does it mean..for that day shall not come? It means the day that Christ Himself returns to us, also in Jerusalem, on the Mount of Olives.
Who is this.. Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God? That would be Satan, in his role as the Antichrist.
Now, it also says there that he will sit in the temple of God, in Jerusalem. There is no temple in Jerusalem at this time and there will be no time to build one. So, what temple is being talked about here? It’s the Dome of the Rock. That building with the dome-shaped, gold-plated roof that sits exactly on the old foundation of the previous two temples of God.
That sure seems fitting, doesn’t it?
The way that history is written, it was common for the conquering army to build THEIR religious building ON TOP OF the foremost religious building of the conquered, and we know that it was the working of Satan to put HIS temple on top of FATHER'S temple.
The Kenites doing the work of building that dome.
Alright. The two witnesses are here and Satan/Antichrist is also here and so begins the five-month tribulation period of Satan. Have we heard anything about the Millennium so far? Not yet.
Three and one-half days before the end of this five-month period of tribulation, Satan will kill these two witnesses, these two sons of oil..
Revelation 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
Revelation 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Revelation 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
They're not going to put these two in the ground and have them resurrect like our Lord did. They may be Kenites but they're not stupid.
Revelation 11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
Who will do the rejoicing? Those that believe that Satan, in his role as the Antichrist, is the True Messiah. Has the rapture happened as of yet? Nope. Everybody is still here. How about the Millennium? Not yet.
And what happens next?
Revelation 11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
Did you catch the times referenced there? 3 1/2 days before the Lord's return, Satan will kill them. 3 1/2 days later, when our Lord does return, they will come to life..apparently...because they were in spiritual bodies to start with. Father is as good at deception as Satan is.
Mankind cannot kill a soul, only Father can.
Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. KJV
Many believe that these two sons of oil will be Enoch and Moses.
Revelation 11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Revelation 11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. KJV
Who are these seven thousand? They are the seven thousand fallen angels that came with Satan when He was booted out of heaven to begin his five-month tribulation. They will die right here when our Lord returns.
Let’s continue with Revelation…
Revelation 11:14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
Revelation 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. KJV
Christ has returned to us, right here. Have we heard anything of the Millennium yet? Nope. How about the rapture? Nope. But let’s look at what has happened already. The two witnesses have gone back to heaven, their job is complete. The seven thousand angels that came with Satan have been destroyed. They’re outta here.
And in Revelation 11:15 we see that the Lord has returned, so what happened to Satan/Antichrist? Let’s go to Revelation, chapter 20..
Revelation 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
Revelation 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
Laid hold on who? The dragon (one of Satan’s names), the serpent (one of Satan’s names), the Devil (one of Satan’s names), and, HEAVEN HELP US, Satan (Satan’s name)!
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
There is that thousand years! There is the Millennium! No Premillennial, no Postmillennial. Just a flat-out thousand year period, AFTER the return of our Lord.
In the last nine chapter of Ezekiel Father goes into great detail to describe the measurements of the Millennial Temple and what would be the reason for having a Temple during that time if our Lord wasn't there with it? It even describes how His Elect will be able to enter that Temple, after donning the proper linen clothing, and sit down and worship and commune with Him.
And what is this little season? That’s another five-month period of time where Satan will be turned loose, to test all those souls that were taught the truth of the Word, during that thousand years, to see who they would choose to follow, our Father or Satan.
And what happens next? The great White Throne Judgment and then the eternity.
Revelation 21:1 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.
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. KJV
That’s the eternity, my friends, the place where we will enjoy happiness forever and ever. No more lies of men or established religion, no more lies from Satan, no more deceiving angels. Just the plain truth and how sweet it will be.
So, there you have it. Not all that difficult to understand, was it? Was there anything mentioned about the rapture? No, because it will never happen, it's a lie. All you have to do is follow the simple truth of our Father’s Words. Father does not deal in multiple answers.
"Well, it could be this or, maybe, it could be that, or, it could happen this way or that way."
NO. It happens exactly as it has been written, no blanks to fill in, no multiple choice answers. When does the Millennium happen? It happens on the Lord’s Day because that’s what the Lord's Day means. A thousand years.
It happens/begins on the day that our Lord returns and Satan is put in the pit to trouble us not for that thousand years. Who will participate in the Millennium?
The souls on the right side of the Gulf in heaven will remain there for the length of this time. The souls on the left side of the Gulf will be separated into two groups: those that did not overcome, and they will go into the Lake of Fire and NOT participate in this thousand years, and second...
...that group that never had a real chance of understanding the truth of it all. They are the souls for which the Millennium was created in the first place. To give them their one and only chance of spiritual survival.
Father makes sure that everyone has a fair shot at the eternity.
We cannot leave it at this without having some idea of WHEN this will all come down and that's pretty easy as well. This 5-month tribulation of Satan/Antichrist will be during the time of the adult stage of the locust, which falls, approximately, between the months of May and September. This is called the season.
In regards to this season, it's important to note that Christ died at Passover, which falls 15 days after the spring equinox and the equinox this year is Tuesday, March 20th.
He was born, approximately, on or around the Feast of Tabernacles, around the 24th - 25th of September. Would it not seem proper for our Lord to return to us on the day of His birth? To begin a new cycle of life in our Spiritual bodies?
Now that we have the season, in what year will it be? That's what no one knows, not even the angels, not our Lord, only the Father. But we do have a few clues to look at.
The generation of the fig tree began in 1948, when Israel established her international borders once more, and the good and bad fig began returning to the land of their forefathers. And we are given three generations throughout Scripture...a 40 year generation in Exodus, a 70 year generation in Daniel, and a 120 year generation in Genesis.
So, just for fun, let's play with these numbers for just a moment.
If you add 40 to 1948 you get the year 1988, so it's not that generation because we're all still here in our earthly bodies.
If you add 120 to 1948 you get the year 2068, which is 50 years from now.
If you add 70 to 1948 you get the year 2018.
What did our Lord tell us to do? WATCH.
