The Father’s purpose(s) for a Millennial Kingdom…
This morning, 26 March 2022, I observed the impotence of America’s Marxist Supreme “Democrat” Leader in Europe war-mongering among European leadership and in my shame and embarrassment for the Nation I love I could only think about my Lord, His eschatological plans and how faithful and accurate are the words provided by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit teaches us that a Time of Tribulation is coming upon the World and nuclear confrontation will manifest via an alliance between Russia-Iran/Islam (Satan)-China v. Israel; millions of men, women, children will perish in this horror and the suffering will be pervasive and unconscionable. This demonic horror will preface the 2nd-Advent of my Lord Jesus Christ and the establishment of His Millennial Kingdom; therefore, a most intriguing question is, “What is the Father’s purpose for the Thousand-Years of Peace” to be administered by King Jesus subsequent the Great Tribulation?
Concerning the Nation of Israel,
Even though Israel has been unfaithful and broken God’s Covenants; rejected and murdered their Messiah; rejected the New Covenant – the Gospel of Jesus Christ, God remains faithful and will save a remnant of Jacob’s children during the Tribulation era (Isaiah 10:22; Romans 9:27) and these will see and mourn for their Messiah and enter into the Millennial Kingdom and Messiah Jesus will receive the Kingdom denied Him at His first-advent (Zechariah 12:10). The thousand-years do not belong solely to Israel but to all faithful in Jesus Christ; both believing Gentiles and the redeemed of Jacob’s seed through faith.
Why a Millennial Kingdom?
I believe the Holy Spirit teaches that the Millennial Kingdom serves multiple purposes, one being the establishment of a Kingdom specifically to honor Jesus as King and second, to provide a stark differentiation from the previous 6000-years of horror manifesting from the Evil One’s influence upon human kind.
Furtherance of the Father’s eschatological plan…
The Father is currently Administrator in an unconscionable war initiated in His Kingdom by an anointed cherub angel; that war having been removed from the Kingdom and the Realm of Time, this Universe, created as a repository and battle ground where the Father through the Son (Warrior and Redeemer) is dealing with said rebellion and restoring peace and order to His Kingdom (1 John 3:8b); the Father is currently in the process of demonstrating to the faithful angelic creation the reasoning for Satan’s extrication from the Kingdom (Luke 10:18) and why Satan, the rebellious angels, must be interned in Hell, forever (Rev 20:10) while simultaneously maintaining volitional love with the beautiful angelic creation.
As the faithful angels have been horrified by the influence of their former brethren concerning the devastation of sin upon humanity, these same angels have been overwhelmed by their God’s selfless love at the Cross to redeem a vile, vulgar and thankless human kind. Through His selfless love demonstrated at Golgotha to destroy the works of the Evil One (1 John 3:8b), God will maintain volitional love with His faithful angelic creation that He loves beyond human comprehension.
The Millennial Kingdom, replete with absolute peace as the Evil One is confined for 1000-years (Rev 20:3), will provide an experientially relevant and stark differentiation, undeniable proof, that Satan is the father of lies, murder, suffering, disease, unconscionable horror (John 8:44) and the faithful angelic creation will wholly concur with the Father that Satan and the fallen angels do deserve eternal punishment in Hell (Rev 20:10) while concurrently, this demonstration of the horrors of rebellion to God’s authority, sovereignty, love, will act as a bulwark against future rebellion in the Kingdom where nothing impure is allowed to exist (Rev 21:27) but where free will is extant out of necessity.
In this, the Father, the Son, the Spirit, will be receive all honor and praise and glory as a result of their selfless love demonstrated by our God and Savior Jesus Christ at Golgotha. Faithfulness to God’s will and His moral law will be honored by all, both the resurrected faithful and the angelic creation, as God’s Way is the ONLY WAY to lasting peace and intimacy in the New Jerusalem.
