The Millennium The First Days of Forever Lesson 15

While nearly all of Revelation concerns the Great Tribulation and the New Heavens and the New Earth, the most explicit text about the Millennial Kingdom is found here in Revelation 20.

Jesus’ Testimony of His Kingdom. The King himself had much to say about his kingdom, especially in the book of Matthew.

The Millennium: The First Days of Forever – Lesson 8 The final chapters of Ezekiel describe a mysterious prince who will lead sacrifices and have authority in the land. We also see the geographic restructuring of the land for the building of a massive 640-acre temple. This temple has a river flowing out of it that replenishes the Dead Sea and the entire land with it. Finally, we see the reconstituted tribes of Israel living in the land. Not one of them is lost.

The Millennium – The First Days of Forever: Lesson 6

The Millennium – The First Days of Forever: Lesson 6 In the final chapter of Isaiah, we get a glimpse at both the New Earth and the Millennium. Prophecies of the two are interwoven, as the Millennium is a time of expanding righteousness and peace that leads seamlessly into the New Earth, yet the distinguishing factor is the presence of sin and death in the Millennium.
