During the Millennium the Bride (the translated saints i.e the wise virgins) live in the higher realm with Jesus (in the heavens). All law and order will come from Jesus to the twelve tribes governing the earth. Now let's talk about those that will be on the earth during the Millennium. Part of them are those left of the nations that fought at Armageddon Rev 20:8. Some of them are the remnant of the Israelites that survived the Armageddon war (Zech 13:8-9). Rev 20:1-2 tells us that Satan is bound in the bottomless bit for the whole period of the millennium, after which he is loosed again.
Rev 20:4-5 gives more insight about those who will be on the earth during the Millennium.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon 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 worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
So we see from the above scripture that part of those that will be on earth are those who have gone through Great tribulation(tribulation saints, the foolish virgins). Those that missed the Rapture and were killed because of their refusal to deny Jesus. Verse 5 tells us that they are resurrected. This is referred to as the first resurrection. There is a second resurrection but this does not happen until after the millennium, the first resurrection happens before the Millennium. Then Verse 6 tells us that they shall be priests and they shall reign with Christ for a thousand years. Also that the second death (eternal seperation from God - Rev 20:14-15) does not have power over them. Amen. They are given thrones, and judgement will be given to them. They are overcomers and so they shall reign with him during the millennium.
What other things happen during the Millennium?
(1) The Climate
The climate will be the same all over the world as it once was. Once was I said, the earth has suffered a catastrophic overthrow once, before Adam was created Gen 1:1,2. So great was this overthrow that it left the earth void. There is a time gap between Gen 1:1 and 1:2, Gen 2:4 tells the earth was created in generations. This catastrophic destruction was mentioned in Isaiah 24:1, Jer 4:23-26. There definitely was a pre-adamite civilization and it suffered a great destruction.
This catastrophic destruction caused a tilt in the earth's axis and in the sixth day of creating man; six thousands years ( a day to a thousand years, 2Peter 3:8) God would intervene and restore all things back to the way it used to be. One of those things will be the climate. There will be a shift again in the earth's axis. The bible says the foundations of the earth are out of course and this causes our harsh seasons of storms, tornadoes but the Lord is going to shift it back for the Millennium, and as he does it will cause the greatest earthquakes that the earth has ever seen. All the cities and mountains will fall Rev 16:18-21.
(2) Restoration of Perfect Year of 360 Days
Also during the Millennium the perfect year of 360 days will be restored. According to the scriptures, the actual length of the year before the flood was 360 days. It could have been the gravitational forces which caused the flood, disturbed the earth's orbit so as to lengthen the year to 365 one-quarter days.There is a solar year of 365 one-quarter days, the perfect calendar year of 360 days, and the lunar year of 354 days. Which of these years does God use in the scriptures? We find the answer in the account of the flood in Gen 7:11-24, Gen 8:3,4. There we are told that the five months, from the 17th of the second month until the 17th of the seventh month, are reckoned as 150 days, 30 days to a month.
Also if we look at the time period of the Great tribulation; referred to as the time of Jacob's trouble Jer 30:7 and that spoken of by Daniel as a time of trouble like never before; we see these period correlating with a period of 42 months of the second half of the reign of the Antichrist Rev 13:5, a period of 1260 days of persecution of the remnant of the woman's seed and a period of 1260 days of the ministry of the two witnesses to the Israelites during the Great tribulation. These time periods are the same; whether 1260 days or 42 months or a period of times, times and a half(three and a half years). The period of 42 months is the same as 1260 days taking into reckoning 30days to a month and this gives us further evidence.
(3) Shortage of Men
Isaiah 4:1 tells us there will be a shortage of men during the millennium.
And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.
Verse 2, reveals this is definitely during the millennium, due to the great battle of Armageddon there is a severe shortage of men.
More proof - Isaiah 13:12 tells us after the Great tribulation God will make a man more precious than fine gold , a man even more precious than the golden wedge of Ophir. You can read verses 10-11.
Also Rev 6:8 tells us that under the fourth seal, a fourth part of the earth dies. Rev 9:18, under the 6th trumpet a 'third part' of the men are killed and then many more during the plagues. Evidently the Lord allows the above mentioned so as to populate the earth again during the thousand year reign they become as the sands of the sea again.
(4) Longetivity of Life
Also we see that during the millennium men will live to be almost a thousand years and children over a hundred years Isaiah 65:20.
There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.
(5) Difference in Sun and Moon Compare to Pre-Millenium
The Sun will be different during the millennium; Isaiah 30:26 tells us the the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun and that of the sun seven times like that of seven days.
Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.
(6) Greatest Breakthrough in Science and Technology.
Lastly during the millennium we will witness the greatest breakthrough in science. Jesus will reveal many fantastic new things to men concerning knowledge, building and space and etc. Mankind himself will reach a zenith of super science like unto a peak of pyramid. Man may learn how to fly by energy magnetic forces in the air Ezekiel 1 or teach him how to use the forces that are in the stars.
In conclusion it is worth of repetition to say that the translated saints will spend this period of one thousand years with Christ in heaven, when the foolish virgins (the Tribulation saints) that missed the Rapture will be on earth for 1000 years.
What a wonderful experience it will be for those in heaven. Hallelujah!
We utmost wish for you is to make it in the Rapture.
This brings us to the end of this series on Armageddon and Millennium. We know you have been greatly blessed and we pray that when the Lord shall come to take his chosen ones, you shall not be found wanting.
God bless you. Amen.
Stay tuned for our next series which is Post-Millennium.
Always make mention of us in your prayers...
Thank You All!
