1. There will be National and Individual peace.
2. There will be fantastic time of inner happiness and joy.
3. The kingdom will be characterized by the glory of God.
4. There will be the manifestation of inner and overt holiness.
5. TLJC will personally comfort every person.
6. There will be the administration of perfect justice.
7. There will be the most fantastic teaching ministry of God the H.S.
8. There will direct instruction from TLJC as the King of kings.
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 33:24; JER 30:17; EZE 34:16.
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 results from the of sin (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.
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 4:6-7, "In that day," declares the Lord, "I will assemble the lame, And gather the outcasts, Even those whom I have afflicted. 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.
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.
Joel 3:16-17">JOE 3:16-17, 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. 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.
ZEC 9:11-12, As for you also, because of the blood of My covenant with you, I have set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. 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; 31:29; EZE 47:22; ZEC 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.
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.
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. Finally, the eighteenth manifestation of the Kingdom of Everlasting Righteousness, though I'm sure there are some I probably missed is that 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.
The serving Him of shoulder to shoulder reveals the unity that exists because of the one unified language......which will more than likely be Hebrew but that's just my opinion.
These eighteen manifestations of the kingdom of our Lord's righteousness reveal that at that time the majority of the world will unite in the worship of God and God's presence will be experienced as never before.
There will also be our Lord's fulfillment of the four unconditional covenants or promises including the conditional covenant from the Old Testament called the Mosaic Law.
1. The Abrahamic Covenant2. The Palestinian Covenant3. The Davidic Covenant4. The new Covenant
In this covenant Israel's continuation and possession of the land and their inheritance of blessings take place.
b. The Palestinian covenant refers to the promises concerning the possession of the land will be are fulfilled by Israel in the Millennial age. ISA 11:11-12; ISA 65:9; EZE 36:28-29.
c. The Davidic covenant, the promises in the Davidic covenant concerning the king, the throne, and the royal house are fulfilled in the Millennial age, JER 23:5-8,20-26; 34:23-25; 37:23-24.
d. The New covenant, the promises of the New covenant of the new heart, the forgiveness of sin, the filling of the Spirit, all find their fulfillment in to Israel in the Millennium, JER 31:31-34; 32:35-39; EZE 11:18-20; ROM 11:26-29.
1. Mankind cannot be satisfied without a personal relationship with TLJC.2. Believers can use B.D. and remain faithful even in prosperity.
Environment is not even the basis for happiness! It is the individual's soul that counts, not the environment.
We noted the Edenic dispensation under the age or dispensation of the Gentiles and we noted how they failed.
We noted the antediluvian age under the dispensation of the Gentiles and how mankind failed, i.e., operation flood.
We also noted the post-diluvivian age under the dispensation of the Gentiles in which we saw mankind once again fail in the Tower of Babel incident.
We noted the dispensation of Israel and how the Jews totally failed no matter what the Lord did.
Then in the first Christocentric dispensation we saw how TLJC came unto His own but His own did not receive Him and how they failed.
The Church-age began and the word of God teaches that even in that dispensation most believers reject the lordship of TLJC and they fail.
Another dispensation, the Tribulation begins with God using Crisis evangelism to warn people but they still reject TLJC.
Finally perfect environment is given for 1,000 years. The question, will mankind respond to the Lord then?? The answer...no!
Illustrating that without a relationship with TLJC mankind is an implacable, frustrated, miserable, ungrateful, hard-hearted wicked individual.
"There is none good, not one". Amen, so be it. Come quickly Lord Jesus, come quickly. Praise God. Allelulah. Praise Jesus and His word. Amen.
