The millennium kingdom not on earth
by Gloria Esther HOlder
Dear Watchman Bob
Thank you for this article. However the Millennium kingdom of Yahushua will NOT be on earth as Jesus said to Pilate "My kingdom is not of this world, if my kingdom were of this world then would my servants fight that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but NOW is my kingdom not from hence (here). Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered: To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Everyone that is of the truth heareth my voice (understand my words).
From the above passage two things are very clear. 1.Jesus was born of God to be a King over all the earth and 2. His Kingdom would not be on earth. Also in Rev.20:4 John wrote: And I saw thrones and they (of the first resurrection) sat on them, and judgment was given unto them, and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worship the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark in their foreheads or in their hands: and they lived and reign with Christ a thousand years.
Since John saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the word of God, it stands to reason that the souls were in heaven and the thrones also were in heaven. Jesus will sit on the throne of David is a figure of speech as David, a man after God's own heart, never departed from God's laws and statues all the days of his life as Solomon his son did.
Reply from Watchman Bob: Please read Isaiah 65 which is a description of the Millennial Kingdom. Where is that? In Heaven or on Earth? Also, read Revelation 20:7-9 which foretells Satan being released after 1000 years to deceive the nations of the earth and go over the breadth of the earth to bring them against the camp of the saints and the holy city (New Jerusalem) where fire comes down out of heaven to destroy them. Does this all sound like the Millennial Kingdom is on earth or in heaven?
