SCRIPTURE READING: Isaiah 11

GOLDEN TEXT: Revelation 5:9-10

1. What two great events mark the beginning of the one thousand years of restitution? Acts 3:20-21, Revelation 20:1-2.

2. Will Satan be allowed to deceive the nations any more until the thousand years have expired? Revelation. 20:3.

3. How long shall the saints made kings and priests in the first resurrection reign with Christ? Revelation 20:4, 6.

4. Jesus said that if He went to heaven, He would COME AGAIN. At the coming, does the Scripture say He is coming TO MEET THE SAINTS, as they start to heaven, or does it say they are resurrected from their graves and are caught up to MEET HIM, as He is returning? I Thessalonians 4:16-17. After meeting Him in the air, how long shall we BE with Him? Verse 17, last phrase.

(NOTE: This makes it plain that we shall BE with Him forever, yet we shall REIGN with Him only through the thousand years. So if we can find where we REIGN, that is where the thousand-year millennium will be spent.)

5. Where shall we reign with Him? Revelation 5:10.

6. In reigning with Him for this thousand years, WHOSE THRONE will we be sitting on? Revelation 3:21. Where is Jesus sitting NOW?

7. Where is the throne of God the FATHER? Matthew 5:34. If Jesus had a throne of His own IN HEAVEN, making TWO thrones in heaven, would not that make heaven a kingdom divided against itself, which could not stand?

8. What throne shall be given to Christ to be His own throne? Luke 1:32. Is the throne of David, which shall become Christ's throne, in heaven or on earth? Then where will the throne be, on which we shall sit with Him a thousand years?

9. When we reign with Christ for a thousand years who shall we reign over? Revelation 2:26-27. Do you think this indicates DEAD nations that had previously been destroyed at Christ's coming?

10. God gave over the reign of the earth to the Gentile nations for 2520 years. This reign is pictured and prophesied to us by Nebuchadnezzar's IMAGE, and Daniel's four BEASTS. When, at the end of the Times of the Gentiles, Christ, the Stone, smites this image on the feet, what place does His Kingdom fill? Daniel 2:35. Is this the Kingdom of God, and does it fill the earth a thousand years AFTER the days of these Gentile kings? Verse 44.

11. How long does the "little horn," make war against, and prevail against the saints? Daniel 7:21-22. Is the Kingdom they possess in heaven, or under it? Verse 27.

12. When Jesus comes, during the battle of Armageddon, when Jerusalem shall be taken, does He return to heaven, or where does He go THAT SAME DAY? Zechariah 14:1-4 (first part of verse 4). What shall go out from Jerusalem from THAT DAY? Verse 8. Will the Lord be king over heaven, or over the earth in that day? Verse 9. Will the land be desolate and uninhabited? Verse 10-11. What happens from year to year thereafter, and will Gentiles and sinners be there? Verses 16-19.

13. Read Isaiah 11:6-8. Will wild animals be tamed BEFORE the millennium? Will there be nursing babes, and weaned babes during the thousand years? Verse 9.

14. What else will happen in THAT DAY? Verses 8-11. Can these events be BEFORE the millennium? Can they be AFTER the millennium? And if they MUST BE DURING THE MILLENNIUM, could we have these animals in heaven, with Gentiles seeking salvation, and babies being born? This condition must be DURING the millennium, and must be ON THE EARTH.

15. What condition will exist during the Millennium? Isaiah 2:4.

16. Will houses be built and vineyards planted during this kingdom age? Isaiah 65:21.

17. Will they build and another inhabit, or will they long enjoy the work of their hands? Isaiah 65:22.

18. During the millennium, what will be the condition of the Holy Land? Isaiah 51:3, Ezekiel 36:35. Will it be like the Garden of Eden?

19 Shall the righteous ever be removed from the earth? Proverbs 10:30.

20. One of the qualities of Godís Holy Spirt is meekness. What are the meek to inherit? Matthew 5:5.

(NOTE: When Jesus Christ returns, He will establish the kingdom of God on earth. Obedience to the laws of God will be taught throughout the world. Jesus Christ, as king of Kings of this millennium kingdom will possess the power and wisdom to enforce His laws. The strong will no longer oppress the poor and the weak. True justice will be administered to all under the direction of Jesus Christ and His saints.  Your Bible reveals a literal UTOPIA is coming! It will be a time of rejuvenation and restitution - 1,000 years of boundless love, joy, peace and prosperity!)

 


Scriptures


SCRIPTURE READING: Isaiah 11.

(Isa 11 NKJV) "There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots. {2} The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD. {3} His delight is in the fear of the LORD, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears; {4} But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, And decide with equity for the meek of the earth; He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked. {5} Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist. {6} "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. {7} The cow and the bear shall graze; Their young ones shall lie down together; And the lion shall eat straw like the ox. {8} The nursing child shall play by the cobra's hole, And the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper's den. {9} They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD As the waters cover the sea. {10} "And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, Who shall stand as a banner to the people; For the Gentiles shall seek Him, And His resting place shall be glorious." {11} It shall come to pass in that day That the LORD shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left, From Assyria and Egypt, From Pathros and Cush, From Elam and Shinar, From Hamath and the islands of the sea. {12} He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth. {13} Also the envy of Ephraim shall depart, And the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off; Ephraim shall not envy Judah, And Judah shall not harass Ephraim. {14} But they shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines toward the west; Together they shall plunder the people of the East; They shall lay their hand on Edom and Moab; And the people of Ammon shall obey them. {15} The LORD will utterly destroy the tongue of the Sea of Egypt; With His mighty wind He will shake His fist over the River, And strike it in the seven streams, And make men cross over dry-shod. {16} There will be a highway for the remnant of His people Who will be left from Assyria, As it was for Israel In the day that he came up from the land of Egypt."

(Dan 2:35 NKJV) ""Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found.

Half of the city shall go into captivity, But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. {3} Then the LORD will go forth And fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle. {4} And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south."

(Zec 14:8-11 NKJV) "And in that day it shall be That living waters shall flow from Jerusalem, Half of them toward the eastern sea And half of them toward the western sea; In both summer and winter it shall occur. {9} And the LORD shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be; "The LORD is one," And His name one. {10} All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be raised up and inhabited in her place from Benjamin's Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananeel to the king's winepresses. {11} The people shall dwell in it; And no longer shall there be utter destruction, But Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited."
