What is God’s purpose for the Millenium? What does He want to accomplish from it… with Satan locked away? Is it the fulfillment of a covenant?

    It’s a time of teaching…Yhvh is just and wants all the children to have the opportunity to hear the Truth before satan is loosed the last time at the end of the millennium to test them one last time

    Not everyone gets to see the 1000 years it is only for the Elect/Saints/Martyrs from Great Tribulation. Only after the Great White Throne Opens will the rest of the dead in Hell in the Sea and in the earth will join them.
    But the 1,000 years is not for the masses.

    The 7 year tribulation will test those left behind. The ones martyred will get sinless bodies in the different harvests during the 7 year tribulation. But if people from all nations are alive on the last day of Daniels 70th week, they are judged in the sheep and goat nation judgment. They cannot get sinless bodies because they still have to be tested. At the end of the millennium they will be tested to see if they pick Satan or God. This includes the nation of Israel.

    Things will get worse,,,, if this world do not believe that I am “the man” in this last days,,,then the word of GOD will stand. .the devil will run this world in flesh. Or if they believe that I am Jesus Christ,the one true and Living God,then God will run this world in spirit…it matters not…one life I have,, one purpose,,,so any road this world choose,,,you will see the I at the end… The earth is mine,and all that it contain…. There is nothing I don’t know,,, I know things that this world don’t know. All I have is now,today,,,there is no tomorrow nor is there yesterday in I….#GODasGOD

    First you have to import the premise of an earthly 1000 year reign, when not a single verse of Scripture says Jesus will reign on earth for 1000 years.

    After the Day of the Lord, as in the days of Noah, the majority of life will be gone. There won’t be governments, mighty armies or war. There will be 1000 years of peace. The Remnant will be gathered into a place of safety. They will live and reign with Christ 1000 years. They will be glorified and changed and not know of war, but will call everyone his neighbor. They shall all know God!

    After 1000 years as the earth’s population begins to grow people will eventually amass an army. But when they attack the Children of God, Fire will come down from heaven and wipe them out.

    If there is no Millennial reign then God’s promises to David and Israel, plus Jesus promises to those Disciples who had followed Him will have all been voided. I wondered why there appears to be no mention of the Millennial Kingdom in the New Testament except for Rev 20, and it dawned on me, that the Day of the Lord is actually that time on Earth, which is the renewal of all things under the rule and reign of Jesus, (a day is as a thousand years) before the Eternal state, when Jesus will hand the Kingdom back to the Father.

    It will be about teaching discipline! Father wants our love of our free will and He is long suffering, but He is tired of those who rock the boat. He does not interfere in our flesh lives, save His elect who were foreordained. Each soul will have the opportunity without hindrance from satan to make up his own mind to willingly love Father. After the 1000 years, however, satan gets one more chance to tempt. Those who choose him at that time will follow him into the lake of fire.

    I thought that too like the post above, that maybe those who died never hearing of Christ, small children and aborted babies may get a chance to live during that time and when Satan is let loose one more time after the 1,000 years, that is when they will either go with him or stay with Jesus,

    One Day with the LORD is better than 10,000 else where. The Millennial Kingdom is a time of Ruling over the Nations with a Rod of Iron. This will be a time where Jesus will rule from the Throne of David for 1,000 years with His Resurrected Saints. There is no second chance the Bride is the bride. However, there will be many blessings in this time because there will be peace and no temptations coming from Satan. There will be premature death and punishment for nations and folks who disobey the Theocratic form of Government. Now that is just the beginning of it and there is a lot more. Any questions?

    WHAT IS THE MILLENNIUM?

    The purpose of the millennium was to give the Jews time to accept Christ before God’s judgment on them in AD 70 (Matthew 21:33-45; 22:1-14; 23:29-39; Luke 17:41-48; 21:5-33).

    Here is a snippet from my book CHRISTIAN HOPE THROUGH FULFILLED PROPHECY:

    Numbers in the Bible are often symbolic, especially in apocalyptic texts. The number seven in the Bible is symbolic for completeness. Even numbers (as opposed to odd numbers) have their own symbolism. The number ten in the Bible is symbolic for manyness. The thousand years is a symbolic term for many years. The Greek word translated “thousand” is chilioi. According to the online Blue Letter Bible, the root word of chilioi means “plural of uncertain affinity.”

    As put by Steve Gregg, “The number ‘a thousand’ is frequently used in Scripture without the intention of conveying statistical information. It is given as the number of generations to which God keeps His covenants (Deuteronomy 7:9), the number of hills upon which God owns the cattle (Psalm 50:10), the number of enemy troops that one Israelite shall chase (Joshua 23:10), the number of those who shall fall ‘at your side’ as opposed to the ten thousand who will fall at ‘your right hand’ (Psalm 91:7), etc. Furthermore, the expression ‘a thousand years’ is never used elsewhere in Scripture for an actual number of years, but only to suggest the idea of a very long time (cf. Psalm 90:4; Ecclesiastes 6:6; 2 Peter 3:8).”

    The usage of a thousand years is not necessarily a long period of time, as it can also be understood symbolically in context to mean “completeness” or “fullness” (Psalm 50:10-12). According to Anthony A. Hoekema, “The number ‘thousand’ which is used here must not be interpreted in a literal [straight forward] sense. Since the number ten signifies completeness, and since a thousand is ten to the third power, we may think of the expression ‘a thousand years’ as standing for a complete period. . . . of indeterminate length. . . . We may conclude that this thousand-year period extends from Christ’s first coming to just before his Second Coming.”

    I am persuaded that the millennium is a figurative period of time between the cross and Parousia. It was about 40 years culminating in the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple in AD 70. This is a remarkable parallel to the 40-year period before entering the LITERAL promised land after leaving Egypt. In the first century, there was a 40-year period of trials and tribulation until entering the SPIRITUAL promise land — the New Heavens and New Earth — when Old Covenant Judaism came to a final end.

    For more about the millennium and other topics on Bible prophecy, see my website:

    During the millennium there will be no humans alive on earth. Only Satan and his wicked angels will be imprisoned here during the 1000 years. All the wicked will be dead on the earth. All the righteous will be in heaven reviewing the judgement of God. At the end of the millennium the righteous will return to earth in the New Jerusalem with God. After the New Jerusalem is settled on the the earth, Jesus will rise above the city of God and call forth the wicked from their graves to stand final judgement. Then they will be cast into the lake of fire to be destroyed along with Satan and his angels. After sin is destroyed, God will recreate the earth. No eternally burning hell. The wages of sin is death. Romans 6:23

    He will come back to set up his kingdom. He will come back to raise those in the 1st resurrection. Those righteous living will be caught up with them and be changed to immorality. We will be living with him in heaven for 1000 yrs. We will be a priests of God, judging the bad angels. All our questions will be answered. We will be able to look at his book of life. Then we will return to earth with him after 1000 yrs are over for the second resurrection. Check out Revelation 20 The Millennium- Kenneth Cox youtube.

    2 Peter 3:8 one day is with the Lord as a thousand years… God created the earth in six days and rested on the Seventh Day. Jesus rested in the tomb over the Sabbath day. After six thousand years of sin, the earth will rest for a 1000 years. There will be no human alive on the earth during the millenium. The earth will be desolate and empty of all life, except for the imprisoned Satan and his wicked angels. Rev 20. The wicked dead are not resurected until after the millenium to stand final judgement. During the millenium the righteous saints are with God in heaven. There they will be shown the judgements of God. Who made it and who didnt and why.

    If there is any fulfillment of a covenant it goes back to the covenant he made with the first human being, the first man and the first woman. Now think what covenant he made with them and how it will be fulfilled in the Millennium.

    If we believe the record of the first millennium in Genesis then, we can also believe in that promised millennial kingdom will be another garden of Eden under the rule of the secönd Adam, Jesus Christ. Christ will come in the resurrected incarnate body to reign on earth for 1000 yrs as king of Israel.(David’s Throne)
    This reign will be over the mortals who survive the Seven years Tribulation Period. All resurrected saints of the OT, the Church, & the Trib period will be officers of the millennium kingdom. Million Babies of Muslims, buddhist, & other religious cults will be nurtured by the saints. It is a reign of peace, prosperity & righteousness. yet many will still be deceived by satan when he is release at the end of the millennium to deceive & encamp the nations to make war. He will be defeated & cast into hell w/ his followers. Rev.20

    There is not some different gathering of gentiles before the gathering of the elect. It is only one gathering at the return of JESUS. The pre trib rapture is a made up fantasy. It is a fantasy that no one can talk people out of. They have to be willing to see that no live people are taken before the first resurrection that happens after the tribulation.
    Revelation 20
    4 Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.

    The first resurrection is a reward for being killed for not taking the mark of the beast. Then when JESUS comes back with his resurrected army the live people are gathered by Angels.
