MILLENNIAL KINGDOM – A Scriptural Snapshot
THE MILLENNIAL KINGDOM
A scriptural snapshot of your near future
Below is a short, but High Definition, photograph of the future Millennial Kingdom on earth of Yeshua HaMashiach, King of kings, and Lord of lords. Take your smartphone self-portrait today, one that you would be happy to post on Facebook, and place it into the photo album below, wherever you see yourself fitting into the near future of earth. The below photo album is a family album, Yahweh’s family, Yeshua’s Kingdom on earth. Hebrews 3:6 (NKJV) “but Messiah as a Son over His own [family] house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.” If your self-portrait does not fit into this family album, you may want to take a serious look at your spiritual state of being, now, today, this minute. You have time to repent of your sinful self, until you die, or until Yeshua returns, whichever comes first. Turn to Yeshua today for the salvation of your soul.
1 – There will be unbelieving survivors remaining on the earth, per Zechariah 14:16 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.”
2 – All nations will come to worship Yeshua, per Zephaniah 2:11 (NKJV) “Yahweh will be awesome to them, for He will reduce to nothing all the mighty ones of the earth; people shall worship Him, each one from his place, indeed all the shores of the nations.” Isaiah 66:23 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that from one New Moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says Yahweh.” Zechariah 14:16 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.” Micah 4:1-4 (NKJV) “Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of Yahweh’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it. 2Many nations shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the Divine One of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion the Torah shall go forth, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem. 3He shall judge between many peoples, and rebuke strong nations afar off; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. 4But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid; for the mouth of Yahweh of hosts has spoken.”
3 – Yeshua will unite both houses of Israel in the land and physically rule over all nations from Jerusalem, per Ezekiel 37:15-28 (NKJV) “Again the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 16“As for you, son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it: ‘For Judah and for the children of Israel, his companions.’ Then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions.’ 17Then join them one to another for yourself into one stick, and they will become one in your hand. 18“And when the children of your people speak to you, saying, ‘Will you not show us what you mean by these?’– 19say to them, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will join them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand.” ‘ 20And the sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes. 21Then say to them, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; 22and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king [Yeshua] over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again. 23They shall not defile themselves anymore with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will deliver them from all their dwelling places in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them. Then they shall be My people, and I will be their Divine One. 24“David My servant shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd; they shall also walk in My judgments and observe My statutes, and do them. 25Then they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob My servant, where your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell there, they, their children, and their children’s children, forever; and My servant David shall be their prince forever. 26Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. 27My tabernacle also shall be with them; indeed I will be their Divine One, and they shall be My people. 28The nations also will know that I, Yahweh, sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.”‘”” Zechariah 2:10-12 (NKJV) “”Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion! For behold, I [Yeshua] am coming and I will dwell in your midst,” says Yahweh. 11Many nations shall be joined to Yahweh in that day, and they shall become My people. And I will dwell in your midst. Then you will know that Yahweh of hosts has sent Me [Yeshua] to you. 12And Yahweh will take possession of Judah as His inheritance in the Holy Land, and will again choose Jerusalem.” Ezekiel 43:5-7 (NKJV) “The Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of Yahweh filled the temple. 6Then I heard Him speaking to me from the temple, while a man stood beside me. 7And He said to me, “Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever. No more shall the house of Israel defile My holy name, they nor their kings [or elected officials], by their harlotry [Sunday churchianity] or with the carcasses of their kings on their high places [Capitol Hill, state legislatures, Knesset]. Zechariah 8:3 (NKJV) “Thus says Yahweh: ‘I [Yeshua] will return to Zion, and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, the Mountain of Yahweh of hosts, the Holy Mountain.’”
Isaiah 9:6-7 (NKJV) “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His [Yeshua’s] shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty Divine One, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7Of the increase of His [Yeshua’s] government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of Yahweh of hosts will perform this.”
4 – It will be mandatory for all mankind to keep the Feast Days, per Isaiah 66:23 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that from one New Moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says Yahweh.” Zechariah 14:16 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.”
5 – The seventh day Sabbath will be observed by all, per Exodus 31:16 (NKJV) “Therefore the children of Israel [this is the Olive Tree you are grafted into] shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant.” Mark 1:21 (NKJV) “. . . and immediately on the Sabbath He [Yeshua, your Savior and King] entered the synagogue and taught.”
6 – Yeshua will enforce the Leviticus 11 dietary laws, per Isaiah 66:17 (NKJV) “”Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves, to go to the gardens after an idol in the midst, eating swine’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse, shall be consumed together,” says Yahweh.” Scavenger animals have never been considered FOOD by Yahweh and never will be considered FOOD, so they have never been declared clean and will never be considered clean animals, so they never will be kosher to eat. So get over your piggish seafood diet.
7 – Every idol will be demolished and every false religion abolished. Examples of false religions would be Islam, Catholicism, modern Judaism, Sunday go to meeting Christianity, per Zephaniah 2:11 (NKJV) “Yahweh will be awesome to them, for He will reduce to nothing all the mighty ones of the earth; people shall worship Him, each one from his place, indeed all the shores of the nations.”
8 – Nations are denied rain if they fail to pilgrimage to Jerusalem during the Feast of Tabernacles, per Zechariah 14:16-18 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 17And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which Yahweh strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.”
9 – The curse to nature will be reversed and there will no longer be carnivores in the animal kingdom, per Isaiah 11:6-9 (NKJV) “”The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 7The cow and the bear shall graze; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den. 9They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Yahweh as the waters cover the sea.”
10 – Humans will live to be hundreds and hundreds of years in age, and some will be procreating forever, per Isaiah 65:19-23 (NKJV) “I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people; the voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her, nor the voice of crying. 20“No more shall an infant from there live but a few days, nor an old man who has not fulfilled his days; for the child shall die one hundred years old, but the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed. 21They shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 22They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of My people, and My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth children for trouble; for they shall be the descendants of the blessed of Yahweh, and their offspring with them.”
11 – Yeshua will set up His humble servants to serve in the Temple due to His inability to serve as High Priest while on the earth, per Isaiah 66:2, 14, 21 (NKJV) 2 . . . “But on this one will I look: on him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word. . . 14 . . The hand of Yahweh shall be known to His servants. . . 21And I will also take some of them for priests and Levites,” says Yahweh.” Hebrews 8:4 (NKJV) “For if He [Yeshua] were on earth, He would not be a priest, since there are priests who offer the gifts according to the Torah.”
12 – There will be no more weapons, or fear, of war due to world peace, per Micah 4:3-4 (NKJV) “3He shall judge between many peoples, and rebuke strong nations afar off; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. 4But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid; for the mouth of Yahweh of hosts has spoken.”
13 – The immortal saints rule over/judge the nations of the earth with Yeshua, per Revelation 20:4-6 (NKJV) “And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Yeshua and for the word of Yahweh, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years. 5But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of Yahweh and of Messiah, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.” Daniel 7:22, 27 (NKJV) “22until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom. 27 Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.’” 1 Corinthians 6:2-3 (NKJV) “Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?”
14 – People will travel long distances to hear Yeshua teach the law/Torah, per Micah 4:1-2 (NKJV) “Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of Yahweh’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it. 2Many nations shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the Divine One of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion the Torah shall go forth, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.
Folks, human survivors of the Tribulation will have babies during the Millennium. Those babies will be born with a sin nature. Will you, future resurrected saints, be ready to minister to them and lead them to a saving knowledge of Yeshua? Matthew 24:44 (NKJV) “Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” [YESHUA ADVENT 2.0] Satan won’t be around to interfere with your life, so you will have NO excuse not to minister and witness for Yeshua. In fact, you could begin practicing today, while the Devil is here to harass you. What a great boot camp opportunity we have! Let’s not waste our time on entertainment and pop culture.
Isaiah 25:9 (NKJV) “And it will be said in that day: “Behold, this is our Divine One; we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is Yahweh; we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation [Yeshua].””
Looking forward to the King’s return,
