The Millennium The First Days of Forever Lesson 12

Jesus’ Testimony of His Kingdom. The King himself had much to say about his kingdom, especially in the book of Matthew. He often used the phrase “the kingdom of heaven is like…” to begin his parables, trying to capture for his disciples the character of the kingdom. We know much more from him about the spiritual than the physical nature of the kingdom, but he gave a few memorable glimpses into the regenerated earth.

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.

The Millennium -The First Days of Forever: Lesson 5

No Old Testament book speaks more of the coming kingdom than Isaiah. In Isaiah, we also get what is probably the Old Testament’s most detailed look at the 1000 year reign of Christ in chapter 65.

In these familiar passages, we should look to see an intermediate state in which death and sin are still present, yet are minimized through the righteous rule of the Messiah. Blessings abound where sin and the curse once abounded.
