A thousand years with Christ
Apocalyptic prophecies revolve around the end of time after the Great Tribulation that God will establish a thousand-year kingdom in which the Messiah will be the head of the kingdom and shepherd all nations in an environment of justice, peace, and love.
Before the beginning of this millennial Kingdom, God will bind Satan for a thousand years and lock him up in the abyss of the earth so that he will no longer deceive the nations during the millennium period:
I saw an angel descending from heaven, with the key to the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he seized the dragon, the ancient serpent, which is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the abyss, and shut him up, and put his seal on him, so that he would no longer deceive the nations, until the thousand years were completed; and after this he must be unleashed for a little time. Revelation 20: 1-3 King James Version (KJV)
With Satan's imprisonment for a thousand years in the depths of the earth, absolute peace is guaranteed during that period.
During the millennial kingdom the redeemed who died during the Great Tribulation and did not allow the mark of the beast to be placed but preferred death and show their fidelity to God, will rise and reign with Christ a thousand years along with all the saints who died before the great tribulation. In the same way, righteous and righteous people who have survived the Great Tribulation period will continue to populate the earth during that millennial period.
For the beginning of the thousand years with Christ on earth there will be people with natural bodies and the redeemed resurrected with incorruptible bodies like that of angels.
The important thing is that it will be a glorious period of a thousand years where peace, justice, love and coexistence will prevail among all living beings of that millennial period.
18 At that time I will make a pact for you with the beasts of the field, with the birds of the sky and with the serpents of the earth; and I will remove bow and sword and war from the earth, and I will make you sleep safely. 19 And I will marry you to me forever; I will marry you to me in justice, justice, kindness and mercy. 20 And I will betroth you to me in faithfulness, and you shall know the Lord. Hosea 2: 18-20
The people of Israel will confidently live in an environment of peace, much love and all the nations that surround them will love peace with Israel and will renounce weapons of war.
All this applies to the nations of the earth, there will be so much peace that the weapons of war will be burned and there will be no need for one nation to rise up against another nation.
The earth will abound in prosperity in every sense of the word. A crop has not yet been harvested when the other is coming very close. Children will die a hundred years old and the years of an adult will be many. This recalls the beginning of creation where people had a life span of up to 969 years as was the case with Matusalen.
Christ will reign over the earth and promote a global government in which all the kingdoms of the earth will render account and worship to him. The word of God will come out of Jerusalem for all the peoples of the earth and many will come from far away places to Jerusalem to worship the Messiah.
The earth will rest from so much violence, war, famine and disease. Everything will be peace, health and coexistence such as there never was on earth until the days of the Millennium with Christ.
Dear reader, it is worth serving Christ and looking forward with great joy to the glorious times of the millennial kingdom when together with Christ we will be enjoying his love for a thousand years on earth.
Do not let your faith be weakened by the enormous problems we are experiencing in this present time. Do not be robbed of the blessing of being able to live with Christ for a thousand years in a kingdom of justice, love, peace, health and much prosperity.
