REV 20:1-3; And I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he should not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed; after these things he must be released for a short time.

(1) "to finish the transgression" = dealing with not only the payment for all of our sins but also problems of the entire OSN.
(2) "to make an end of sin" = dealing with the main problem of man's sin which is his sin of unbelief.
(3) "to make atonement for iniquity" which is to pay the price for the results of our sins, especially the ones that produced guilt and condemnation for breaking the rules of the land called iniquities as found in the Ten Commandments.
(4)  Our Lord is going to bring in everlasting righteousness or literally the "kingdom of everlasting righteousness."
Gog and Magog refer to the hostile nations of the world who are against Christians and Jews.

(1) First comes the Rapture.
(2) Then comes the 7 year Tribulation period.
(3) After the Tribulation - The Millennial reign or the Kingdom of Righteousness for 1,000 years
(4) Then the Eternal State.

The resurrection body is recognizable as a human body, Luk 24JOH 20:25-27.

The voice of the resurrection body is recognized as the voice of the person in their human body, JOH 20:16.

The resurrection body can also eat food, LUK 24:30,43.

The resurrection body can also walk though doors and walls, JOH 20:19,26, LUK 24:26.

The resurrection body is able to appear and disappear, LUK 24:31.

The resurrection body can move vertically or horizontally; MAT 28:10ACT 1:9-10.
(4) to bring in everlasting righteousness; (5) to seal up vision and prophecy; (6) to anoint the most holy place.

4. Prophecy #4 = our Lord will eventually “bring in everlasting righteousness” or in reality,  a Kingdom of righteousness that will last forever.

This is a prophecy about the coming of the king, our Lord and Savior, for the second time and setting up the Millennial kingdom, which is
a thousand year kingdom; ISA 11:2-10.

1. There will be world peace. National and individual peace will be the fruit of the Messiah's Reign, ISA 2:4; 11:6-9; 60:18; 61:7.
2.  It will be a fantastic time of inner happiness and joy, ISA 9:3-4JER 30:18-19ZEP 3:14-17.
3. The kingdom will also be characterized by glory, ISA 4:2; 60:1-9
4. The everlasting kingdom of God's righteousness called the Millennial reign will also  be a kingdom manifested by inner and overt holiness, ISA 1:26-27JER 31:23EZE 36:24-31.

JER 31:23   Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, "Once again they will speak this word in the land of Judah and in its cities, when I restore their fortunes, #'The Lord bless you, O abode of righteousness, O holy hill!'

5. The King will personally minister to every need so that there will be the fullness of "comfort",  ISA 12:1-2JER 31:23-25ZEC 9:11-12.

ZEC 9:11   As for you also, because of the blood of My covenant with you, I have set your prisoners free from the waterless pit.

ZEC 9:12 Return to the stronghold, O prisoners who have the hope; This very day I am declaring that I will restore double to you.

JER 31:23   Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, "Once again they will speak this word in the land of Judah and in its cities, when I restore their fortunes, #'The Lord bless you, O abode of righteousness, O holy hill!'

All of the divine blessings that will take place because you are also going to see the ingratitude and implacability that develops.

EZE 36:24 "For I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands, and bring you into your own land.
EZE 36:25 "Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols.

6. There will be the administration of perfect justice, ISA 9:7JER 23:5.

JER 23:5   "Behold, the days are coming," declares the Lord, "When I shall raise up for David a righteous Branch; And He will reign as king and act wisely And do justice and righteousness in the land.

7. There will also be the most fantastic teaching ministry of God the H.S., ISA 11:1-2; 41:19-20HAB 2:14.

Satan is in prison along with Abaddon and Beelzebub and the teaching  ministry of God the HS and the winner believers of the CA as  well as some from other dispensations will be ruling upon the earth.

8. There will also be direct instruction from TLJC as the King of kings, ISA 29:17-24MIC 4:2.

MIC 4:2  And many nations will come and say, "Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord And to the house of the God of
Jacob, That He may teach us about His ways And that we may walk in His paths." For from Zion will go forth the law, Even the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

All of the nations in the world will recognize the greatness of the nation of Israel.

It is such a great nation because of three of the greatest individuals who ever lived came from Israel-----Jesus Christ, Paul the apostle and Moses.

9. The original curse placed upon creation in GEN 3:16-19 will be removed! There will be abundant productivity to the earth, even the animal creation will be changed, ISA 11:6-9;     35:9; 65:25.

Do you recall when the Pharaoh of Egypt gave orders to kill all the Jewish male babies as soon as they were born, EXO 1:12-19.

God was blessing and protecting His people from being abused and mistreated and part of the blessing of God upon the Jewish females was that the curse of childbirth was removed.

They were no longer under the curse of GEN 3:16 where the Lord said to the woman "I will greatly multiply Your pain in childbirth, In pain you shall bring forth children;

The point being that part of the curse was removed as a part of the blessings of  God.
The same principle will also be true in the Millennial reign when the kingdom of everlasting righteousness will be upon the earth, certain parts of the curse over man, animals and nature will be removed.

10. The ministry of the King as the healer will be seen throughout the Millennium so that sickness and even death will be removed, the exception being "death" in dealing with criminal sin or capital punishment, ISA 33:24JER 30:17EZE 34:16.

MAT 8:16  And when evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon‑possessed; and He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were ill.

MAT 8:17  in order that what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, saying, "He Himself took our infirmities, and carried away our diseases."

MAT 9:20 And behold, a woman who had been suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years, came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His cloak;

MAT 9:21-22,  for she was saying to herself, "If I only touch His garment, I shall get well." But Jesus turning and seeing her said, "Daughter, take courage; your faith has made you well." And at once the woman was made well.

If God's people will turn from their wicked ways, He will take sickness from their midst (DEU 7:12-15.

Much of our physical sickness is a result of a curse (DEU 28:59-61), especially the curse of rejecting the word of the Lord.

It is true that some sicknesses are passed down genetically, or from food poisoning or neglect of the body, but not all!  JER 30:17 'For I will restore you to health And I will heal you of your wounds,' declares the Lord, 'Because they have called you an outcast, saying: "It is Zion; no one cares for her."

EZE 34:16 "I will seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken, and strengthen the sick; but the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them with judgment.

11. All of the deformed are healed as well, if they were deformed at the time of the Second Advent they will experience a total healing,
ISA 29:18-19JER 31:8MIC 4:6-7.

JER 31:8 "Behold, I am bringing them from the north country, And I will gather them from the remote parts of the earth, Among them the blind and the lame, The woman with child and she who is in labor with child, together; A great company, they shall return here.

MIC 4:6   "In that day," declares the Lord, "I will assemble the lame, And gather the outcasts, Even those whom I have afflicted.
MIC 4:7 "I will make the lame a remnant, And the outcasts a strong nation, And the Lord will reign over them in Mount Zion From now on and forever.

12.  There will also be a supernatural work of preservation in the Millennial age through the King, ISA 41:8-14EZE 34:27; Joel 3:16-17.

EZE 34:27 "Also the tree of the field will yield its fruit, and the earth will yield its increase, and they will be secure on their land. Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bars of their yoke and have delivered them from the hand of those who enslaved them.

JOE 3:16  And the Lord roars from Zion And utters His voice from Jerusalem, And the heavens and the earth tremble. But the Lord is a refuge for His people And a stronghold to the sons of Israel.

JOE 3:17  Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain. So Jerusalem will be holy, And strangers will pass through it no more.

13. There will be no social, political, or religious oppression, ISA 14:3-6; 42:6-7ZEC 9:11-12.

ZEC 9:11   As for you also, because of the blood of My covenant with you, I have set your prisoners free from the waterless pit.

ZEC 9:12  Return to the stronghold, O prisoners who have the hope; This very day I am declaring that I will restore double to you.

14. There will not be any of the tragedies of mental illness or of infant deaths, ISA 65:20.

15. The earth's population will soar and there will be sex. Children will be born to the believers who began the Millennium and will have a sin nature and therefore need salvation, JER 30:20; 31:29EZE 47:22ZEC 10:8.

JER 30:20 'Their children also shall be as formerly, And their congregation shall be established before Me; And I will punish all their oppressors.

JER 31:29 "In those days they will not say again, 'The fathers have eaten sour grapes, And the children's teeth are set on edge."

EZE 47:22  "And it will come about that you shall divide it by lot for an inheritance among yourselves and among the aliens who stay in your midst, who bring forth sons in your midst.

And they shall be to you as the native‑born among the sons of Israel; they shall be allotted an inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel.

ZEC 10:8  "I will whistle for them to gather them together, For I have redeemed them; And they will be as numerous as they were before.

16. There will exist a perfect economic system (e.g. no unions) in which the needs of men are abundantly provided for, ISA 62:9-12; 65:21-23JER 31:5.

JER 31:5 "Again you shall plant vineyards On the hills of Samaria; The planters shall plant And shall enjoy them.

One of the blessings that go along with the right-man right woman blessing is finding the right job or your niche in life as ECC 9:9 teaches.

ECC 9:9 Enjoy life with the woman whom you love all the days of your fleeting life which He has given to you under the sun; for this is your reward in life, and in your toil in which you have labored under the sun.

17.  There will be an increase of solar and lunar light. The increased light probably is a major cause of the increased productivity of the earth, ISA 4:5; 30:26; 60:19-20ZEC 2:5.

ZEC 2:5 'For I,' declares the Lord, 'will be a wall of fire around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.' "

18.  There will be a unified language. The language barriers will be removed so that there can be free social intercourse, ZEP 3:9.

ZEP 3:9 "For then I will give to the peoples purified lips, That all of them may call on the name of the Lord, To serve Him shoulder to shoulder.

All the world will unite in the worship of God and God's presence will be experienced as never before. = AMEN!
