12. The Millennium
"Seventy weeks are determined For your people and for
your holy city, To finish the transgression, To make an
end of sins, To make reconciliation for iniquity, To
bring in everlasting righteousness, To seal up vision
and prophecy, And to anoint the Most Holy.
I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key
to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2He
laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the
Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;
3and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him
up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the
nations no more till the thousand years were finished.
But after these things he must be released for a little
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 Jesus and for the
word of God, 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
Christ for £a thousand years.
At the close of Daniel’s 70th
week, we see Satan bound for 1000-years , the Antichrist
and False prophet thrown into the Lake
and the nations being gathered before Messiah’s throne.
The Earth during the seven-year tribulation
has gone through unequaled period in time. Unless God
intervened, humanity would have been completely
destroyed. During the tribulation period, God allowed
man to reach a point of self-destruction. Humanism was
fulfilled, man without God, man left to his own nature
results in total corruption and destruction. The
seven-year period also concludes with destruction of the
environment; life in the oceans die, fresh water is
poisoned, and great earthquake destroys every city.
the return of Christ, with the armies of Heaven, the
armies gathered against
literally melt away at His presence. Israel
and the nations are gathered before the throne of
Messiah, to determine who will enter the Millennium.
is the Millennium?
Millennium, in short is the 1000-year reign of Messiah
on the Earth. During his reign, the promises and
blessing to obedient
Israel reach fulfillment. Jesus the Messiah will reign
from Jerusalem with his resurrected saints over a
physical earth. Satan will be bound for 1000 years.
The earth will flourish, People, nations and creation
will be at a complete state of peace. Immortal
resurrected saints and mortal human residents of the
millennium will live together on a Millennial earth.
Humanity will live to 1000-years during this time. Sin
and death will be rare in the Earth during this period.
earth’s population grows, those who survive the
tribulation, and enter the Millennium phase of humanity
populate the earth. In this phase, the population of the
earth will explode with death and sin being rare.
The Millennium will end at Satan’s release,
to test the nations one final time. Satan’s release will
test those born during the Millennium. His release will
give those born on the earth a trial of their heart.
Millennium ends with the Great White Throne Judgment
when all those alive during the millennium who rebelled
and the dead in Hell, whose names are not in the book of
life, will be brought before the throne of Christ for
final judgment, to give an account for their deeds.
is the purpose of the Millennium?
The Millennium accomplishes several
important purposes. The
God keeps his promises and word.
made very specific promises to the descendents of
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Promises of blessings for
obedience and cursing for disobedience, during the
Millennium Israel is blessed for obedience fulfilling
God’s promise to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
God rewards his people.
millennium is also a period when God will reward his
saints, both Old and New Testament with positions of
authority over a millennial kingdom. Christ will reign
as King, while the saints will reign with Him over the
nations. The twelve disciples will rule over the twelve
tribes of Israel, while some may rule over cities as
reward for a faithful service in the physical body.
God demonstrates his righteousness.
the Millennium, humanity will have every need physically
met and will lack for nothing. Despite this, in the end
when given the option, a significant portion born during
the Millennium will reject the Lord God. Those who
choose the Lord will show people do not choose or reject
God based on outward circumstance, but inward character.
More people for eternity.
Since Adam’s fall, the earth has been under a curse.
Humanity has died, and creation has been hostile to
man’s survival. This changes in the millennium,
creation harmonizes with humanity. Death and sin are
rare and the population of the earth explodes to
unprecedented levels. At the end of the millennium,
Satan, who is released from his prison, tests those
born. They who reject Satan, pass the test enter
eternity with Christ and the saints in the New
Jerusalem. Those who reject the millennium blessings,
and turn against God join the faithless of creation,
including the fallen from Adam’s fall to Armageddon.
During the Millennium, the covenants; The Abrahamic,
Canaan/Palestine/Israeli, Davidic and New Covenants will
be fulfilled literally. God operates according
to His word. God from the fall spoke through prophets
to fallen man. God made promises of redemption, only to
be fulfilled in literal
rejection of Messiah, placed their fulfillment on hold.
Israel’s obedience and acceptance of Messiah, Jesus
Christ reinstates Israel, and allows God to fulfill his
promise to their descendents.
this reason, Paul alludes to the Gentiles blessing in
Israel’s fall, but promises an even greater blessing in
For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the
world, what will their acceptance be but life from the
dead? Romans 11:15
says, “Life from the dead” referring to the
Israel accepts Christ, the time of resurrection is at
hand. God will then fulfill his promises of obedience to
Israel made in the covenants during the time of the
prophets, postponed at time Messiah was “Cut off”.
The Abrahamic Covenant
During the Millennium all nations of the earth will be
blessed, through the covenant God established with The
descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will be as the
stars in heaven. The land
of Canaan will be where the Messiah will reign over the
Earth. Israel, the descendents of Abraham, will be the
prince of nations on the Earth in the Millennium.
He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward
heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number
them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants
I give to you and your descendants after you the land in
which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an
everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
17blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will
multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and
as the sand which is on the seashore; and your
descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies.
the majority of the earth’s population dying in the
tribulation period, and 1/3 of Israel surviving
(Zechariah 13:8), Israel begins the Millennium with a
greater percentage then other nations (Speculation).
Therefore, there population will be greater, then the
other nations during the millennium period.
The Palestinian/Canaan/Israeli Covenant
Covenant of blessing is granted
Israel, Jacob’s descendents, if they are obedient;
will be blessed above all nations.
Israel will be a righteous and obedient nation and will
receive an outpouring of blessing. This blessing
fulfilled during the millennium, while Jesus Christ
reigns as King of the Earth from Jerusalem.
it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice
of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His
commandments which I command you today, that the LORD
your God will set you high above all nations of the
earth. 2And all these blessings shall come upon you
and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD
it shall come to pass, when all these things come upon
you, the blessing and the curse which I have set before
you, and you call them to mind among all the nations
where the LORD your God drives you,4If any of you are
driven out to the farthest parts under heaven, from
there the LORD your God will gather you, and from there
He will bring you. 5Then the LORD your God will bring
you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you
shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply
you more than your fathers. 6And the LORD your God
will circumcise your heart and the heart of your
descendants, to love the LORD your God with all your
heart and with all your soul, that you may live.
The Davidic Covenant
Davidic covenant establishes
Israel as the throne of God on earth during the
Millennium. The Messiah, the son of David, Son of God
will rule on David’s throne from
will set up your seed after you, who will come from your
body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13He shall build
a house for My name, and I will establish the throne
of his kingdom forever.
your house and your kingdom shall be established forever
before £you. Your throne shall be established forever.”’”2
Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things
in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of
David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
Jesus is descendent of David both through Mary, his
mother. During the millennium Jesus will rule over the
Earth, as the population of the Earth accelerates his
saints will serve as administrators, rulers, judges and
priests over the millennial earth. The law will go
forth from Jerusalem.
The New Covenant.

Millennium, Israel will receive the blessings of the
New Covenant. God’s everlasting covenant with
provides forgiveness of sins and the indwelling of the
Holy Spirit. Those who are resurrected will rule and
reign with Christ during the Millennium.
31“Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I
will make a new covenant with the house of
Israel and with the house of Judah—32not
according to the covenant that I made with their fathers
in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out
of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke,
£though I was a husband to them, says the LORD. 33But
this is the covenant that I will make with the house of
after those days, says the LORD: I will put My law in
their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be
their God, and they shall be My people. 34No more
shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his
brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they all shall
know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,
says the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and
their sin I will remember no more.”
Israel did not receive the New Covenant prior to the
millennium. The church, made of Jews and gentiles
received the blessing in the place of Israel. The New
Covenant blessings will be realized in the Millennium.

at the end of the 1000-year period. Man does not pursue
war but pursues peace. The kingdoms of earth are managed

many people; They shall beat their swords into
their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not lift
up sword against nation, Neither shall they learn war
27Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to
them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28For this is
My blood of the £new covenant, which is shed for many
for the remission of sins. 29But I say to you, I will
not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until
that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s
Transition to the Millennium
transition from the old order to the new order according
to Daniel 12:12 is 45 days. During this time the elect
who are in hiding are gathered by the angels (Matthew
24:31). Also gathered are the nations, who are
separated as sheep and goats are divided by a shepherd.
This division is to determine who enters the Millennium
and who is cast to Hell to await judgment at the end of
the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy
angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His
glory."All the nations will be gathered before Him, and

part of scripture tells us the Satan and his angels are
included in this judgment along with those who survive
the tribulation period. Satan and his angels are sent
to Hell for their judgment, along with them are those
actions in the tribulation period demonstrated
allegiance to Satan, by their works. The goats (People
on the left of the King) became their own judge by their
behavior during the tribulation.
Satan and his angles are judged, at this point as well.
We see Satan’s power removed and his placement in Hell.
The angels who rebelled with him are also placed in
everlasting fire. The saints are involved in the
judgment of the fallen angels at this point. (I

tribulation period (pre-tribulation view) or survived

way the Earth during the Millennium
the nature of man and animals will be changed during the
reign of Messiah. Satan will no longer be able to cause
havoc in the Earth. The curse of the fall, removed from
the Earth, transforms animal life from adversary to
friend. In Romans 8:19-21, we read that all nature
groans and waits for the adoption of the children of
God. The Earth will be like it was in the days of Adam
and Eve before the fall.

the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits
for the revealing of the sons of God. 20For the creation
was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of
Him who subjected it in hope; 21because the creation
itself also will be delivered from the bondage of
corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of
God. 22For we know that the whole creation groans and
labors with birth pangs together until now.
Government during Millennium
government of the Earth will not be a democracy, but a
theocracy. Jesus the Son of God will rule from
Jerusalem over the earth. His servants will be his
governors, mayors, judges and priests over the citizens
of the Earth. The body of the Church will rule with
Christ over the Earth. During this period Christ's
servants will be rewarded for a faithful life.
reward of government is best illustrated in the parable
of the Talents and Mina. The faithful servants are
rewarded with responsibility of the kingdom received by
the master. In Luke, in exchange for the 10 Minas the
servant is given charge over 10 cities (Luke
19:16-17). The disciples we see in Matthew 19:28 rule
over the tribes of Israel.
Jerusalem will be the Earth’s Capital
capital city of the Earth will be Jerusalem. From
the government will go forth throughout the earth. The
nations come to Jerusalem to learn the ways of God. To
worship before the King of the Earth.

it shall come to pass in the latter days That the
mountain of the LORD’S house
Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And
shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.
Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up
to the mountain of the LORD,
the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His
ways, And we shall walk in His paths.” For out of
Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the
LORD from Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:1-3
10“Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion! For behold, I
am coming and I will dwell in your midst,” says the
LORD. 11“Many nations shall be joined to the LORD in
that day, and they shall become My people. And I will
dwell in your midst. Then you will know that the
LORD of hosts has sent Me to you. 12And the LORD will
take possession of Judah as His inheritance in the Holy
Land, and will again choose

the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up
from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of
hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.
2“Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘I am zealous for Zion
with great zeal; With great fervor I am zealous for
her.’3“Thus says the LORD: ‘I will return to Zion,
And dwell in the midst of Jerusalem.
Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, The
Mountain of the LORD of hosts, The Holy Mountain.’Zechariah
Jesus king of the Earth
Jesus will rule from the throne of David over the
nations of the Earth. Jesus will have a visible and
holy presence to the nations. His appearance will be
one of awe and splendor according to Ezekiel. King
Messiah is called the Glory of the Lord in Ezekiel 43.
Here we see Jesus, in His glory as God and King ruling
the increase of His 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
justiceFrom that time forward, even forever. The zeal of
the Lord of hosts will perform this.
1Afterward he brought me to the gate, the gate that
faces toward the east. 2And behold, the glory of the God
of Israel came from the way of the east. His voice
was like the sound of many waters; and the earth
shone with His glory. 3It was like the appearance of
the vision which I saw—like the vision which I saw when
£I came to destroy the city. The visions were like the
vision which I saw by the River Chebar; and I fell on my
face. 4And the glory of the LORD came into the
temple by way of the gate which faces toward the east.
5The Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner
court; and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the
I heard Him speaking to me from the temple, while a man
stood beside me. 7And He said to me, “Son of man,

they committed; therefore I have consumed them in My

was watching in the night visions, And behold, One like
the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of
heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, And they
brought Him near before Him. 14 Then to Him was given
dominion and glory and a kingdom, That all peoples,
nations, and languages should serve Him. His
dominion is an everlasting dominion, Which shall
not pass away, And His kingdom the one Which shall
not be destroyed.
37Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?”
Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king.
For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have
come into the world, that I should bear witness to
the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” John
Role of the Church
church, the body of Christ, will rule with Him during
the Millennium. As the population of the Earth grows,
the earth will require administration. Throughout the
earth, the saints will be placed in positions of
authority to manage Christ’s kingdom.
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. 27Then
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
Jesus said to them, “Assuredly I say to you, that in the
regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of
His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on
twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
29And everyone who has left houses or brothers or
sisters or father or mother £or wife or children or
lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold,
and inherit eternal life. 30But many who are first will
be last, and the last first.
15“And so it was that when he returned, having received
the kingdom, he then commanded these servants, to whom
he had given the money, to be called to him, that he
might know how much every man had gained by trading.
16Then came the first, saying, ‘Master, your mina has
earned ten minas.’ 17And he said to him, ‘Well done,
good servant; because you were faithful in a very
little, have authority over ten cities.’ 18And
the second came, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned
five minas.’ 19Likewise he said to him, ‘You also be
over five cities.’ Luke
4AndI 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
Jesus and for the word of God, 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 Christ for £a thousand years.
Old Testament Saints will Rule with the Church
During the Millennium resurrected Old Testament saints
such as Daniel, David and Job will be active
participants in Jesus Christ the Messiah’s kingdom.
David will have a rule of leadership, Daniel is told in
the end of days he will rise to his inheritance. Job
looked forward to the day when he would see the redeemer
with his own eyes (Job 19:25).
they shall serve the LORD their God, And David their
king, Whom I will raise up for them.
you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and
will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.”Daniel
I say to you that many will come from east and west, and
sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom
of heaven. 12But the sons of the kingdom will be cast
out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and
gnashing of teeth.”
Worship during the Millennium
During the Millennium Messiah Jesus will be the focus of
worship and celebration. Jesus, the glory of the Lord,
God himself will be present for the whole world to
worship. Jesus will construct his throne room, an
Earthly temple to be the center of worship. . Only
this time, there will not be an Arc of the Covenant,
God himself will be the center of worship in the earth.
Nations will come up yearly to honor the Lord
earth will submit to the Messiah, who will rule with a
rod of Iron (Psalm 2). Nations will not be allowed to
lax in their submission to the King of the Earth.
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, the LORD 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
to worship the King, the LORD 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 the LORD strikes the
nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of
Tabernacles. 19This shall be the punishment of Egypt and
the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to
keep the Feast of Tabernacles.
Temple & Messiah
During the Millennium a Jewish Temple will exist onMt.
will be the throne room of Jesus Christ, who will rule
the nations in justice and righteousness.
Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court;
and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the temple.
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, by their
harlotry or with the carcasses of their kings on their
high places. 8When they set their threshold by My
threshold, and their doorpost by My doorpost, with a
wall between them and Me, they defiled My holy name by
the abominations which they committed; therefore I have
consumed them in My anger.
Memorial Priesthood will exist during the Millennium
priesthood’s purpose was to administer the sacrifice on
behalf of sinners. During the Millennium, the purpose
of the Priesthood will be to remind the world of
Messiah’s sacrifice, offered on their behalf. They will
administer a memorial sacrifice. The priesthood will
instruct on what is holy and profane.
15“But the priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok, who
kept charge of My sanctuary when the children of Israel
went astray from Me, they shall come near Me to minister
to Me; and they shall stand before Me to offer to Me the
fat and the blood,” says the Lord GOD. 16“They shall
enter My sanctuary, and they shall come near My table to
minister to Me, and they shall keep My charge.
Population during the Millennium
the Millennium, the earth’s population will explode.
Without war, disease, famine and death the earth will
multiply with people. Today there are over 6 Billion
people alive on the Earth. After the Tribulation two
thirds of the Earth population will be killed. Those
alive during the return of Christ will be judged. Those
found worthy will enter the enter the Millennium
kingdom. Those who enter the Millennium will repopulate
only cause for death during the Millennium will be for
rebellion and apostasy, but even death at one hundred
years old will be like the death of an infant today.
But when death does come, the individual will have
willingly and knowingly rebelled against Christ.
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.
How many will be alive at the end of the
Millennium is total speculation. A guess of 10 times
the current population of the Earth would not seem
outrageous. Without the factors that decrease
population, 60-70 billion might be conservative.
we one million people survived the tribulation period
and entered the Millennium age, and we assume the
population doubled every 55 years in the first 330 years
the population would grow to 32 million souls. In the
next 330 years there would over 2 billion souls, and by
the end of the 1000 years over 130 billion souls. A
doubling of the population every 55 years is extremely
conservative, especially considering there will be no
war, death will be scarce and the environment will not
be adverse to humanity.
Of this population, many will have never
experienced the testing of Satan. They will have seen
the glory of Christ and his earthly kingdom. There will
be no lack of anything in the earth. However, the true
hearts of those born during the Millennium was never
tested. God’s existence will be as obvious and open.
However, humanity given the chance, will still rebel
against God. Satan tested the angels, he tested mankind
in our day and he will test those born in the
Testing at the end of the Millennium
is the final test of mankind. Following this final test
will be the “Great white throne judgment”. This test
is not for saints only to those born during the
when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be
released from his prison 8and will go out to deceive
the nations which are in the four corners of the earth,
Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle,
whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9They went
up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp
of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down
from God out of heaven and devoured them.
the conclusion of the Millennium, Satan deceives an
innumerable number of souls born during the Millennium
to rebel against Christ’s kingdom. How they rebel is
not important, they are deceived like those at
Armageddon and the angels who fell, thinking they could
actually defeat God in the universe He created.
Great White Throne Judgment
After the Millennium, all whose names are not in the
Book of Life will stand before the throne of Christ to
be judged for all eternity. The dead in Hell are
resurrected to give an account of their life.
I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from
whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there
was found no place for them. 12And I saw the dead, small
and great, standing before £God, and books were opened.
And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.
And the dead were judged according to their works, by
the things which were written in the books. 13The sea
gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades
delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were
judged, each one according to his works. 14Then Death
and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the
second £death. 15And anyone not found written in the
Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
9Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him
the name which is above every name, 10that at the name
of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and
of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11and
that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is
Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
