How are you? Hope you had or are having a good day today?
Are you longing for the return of our Lord? I’ve had an impression that even some Christians put a long face on them, when they hear of the end-times. What would make them still long for this world soiled by injustice and wickedness, while we see all creatures groaning? I think one of the reasons would be the lack of vision on the new world to come. Many people have an impression that Heaven will be boring with angels playing harps and we sing praises all the time. I don’t believe Heaven will be ever boring, as our Father is Creator and His Creativity is beyond our imagination. Yet, I think many Christians lack in vision on 1,000 Years of reign, i.e. Millennium.
In 2016, I took a class on the book of Revelation. It was a weekly evening class after work. My friend invited me to join her; so I attended the class with her and I liked it. While I took the class, I also watched David Pawson’s teachings on the book of Revelation recorded in the US many years back. After I watched his teaching on Millennium, I began to be so interested in knowing more of it. And I began to look forward to it.
There will be Millennium before the new heaven and the new earth comes. Jesus will reign and He will be King and Judge of all nations on earth. And we will reign with Him for 1,000 years. To the faithful, He will entrust ten cities, a nation or even more. We will work with Him to restore the earth as He originally intended. Nature and animals as well as humans will be glad, for we will restore the life in Eden. Recently, I got to watch Neville Johnson’s teaching on 1,000 Years and read his book “Secrets of the Kingdom, volume I.” He shared what the Lord showed Him when he was caught up into the third Heaven. It was quite in line with what David Pawson shared. I think the Lord gave David Pawson the Spirit of Wisdom and Knowledge through the Scriptures so that he understood what the Millennium would look like, while He caught Neville Johnson into the Heaven and showed him in person what it would look like.
In order to encourage you to have vision on what is coming and encourage you to long for Millennium, I would like to share some of the things Neville Johnson wrote on Millennium, and Reign of Christ, in his book:
Rebuilding: A massive building program will get underway. Civil engineers, architects, and planners will be needed. God’s people will be involved in planning and rebuilding the new world of tomorrow.
Ecology will need to be re-balanced as a new climate takes hold.
Science and Technology will not be discarded but will reach its zenith.
Economics: The present economic systems of the world based on profit will be discarded for an equitable and fair system with plenty for all.
The Music and Arts: This will reach a level unprecedented in human history.
No More Famine
A University at Jerusalem: There will be a teaching center at Jerusalem where the Lord Himself will teach us of His ways. Can you imagine the subjects that will be taught?
Planet Management, Astral Physics, Agricultural Science, Celestial Music, Cosmic Energy, The Power of Love, Secrets of the Universe, Economics, etc.
God is preparing a people for this New Age and you have been chosen to live in this century when the climax of these things will occur. Your destiny is tied up with this.
God is looking for a people. He is running an ad. Throughout the body of Christ, the cry of the Spirit is:
Wanted: (To build a New Age)
Friend, aren’t you excited? You might want to work in the department of Economics? I might learn Agriculture from the Lord! Neville Johnson said some would be in charge of even galaxies!
One day in my Singapore church, a sister said to me, “If we live in the last days, why should I teach my daughter and send her to school? Jesus would return soon and her education here would be useless.” What do you think? I think not only unbelievers but some Christians like her would ask that question. Jesus is looking for trustworthy people who can steward what He has given here. If you are a mother or a housewife, and do your work faithfully, He would entrust a galaxy or a nation to you. If you are a faithful student, He would entrust ten cities to you. He is interested in what our heart attitude is, not what our career on earth is. He watches to see if you’ve been faithful in finance, talents, time and so on, to give Him glory. We are not here only to be saved and raptured and to end up in Heaven. Our Father put a great plan for us from the beginning and look for His sons and daughters who will rule and reign with Him here on earth! I can’t wait to witness this glorious manifestation of the divine plan.
Friend, even when we see many tribulations and turbulence in the days to come, please do not be discouraged. It has been slated and must come to pass before His return. And we have hope and goal in Him. We press forward to win the prize to reign with Jesus for 1,000 years. I do not know whether it’s literal or symbolic, but it will be really long. See how temporary it is to live here, but so many people focus on the cares of this world only? We will have a lot of works to do with our King. Are you willing to be obedient here on earth? Living in this world temporarily is kind of a probation period when He tests us to see whether we are qualified for the positions to reign with the King in the Millennium for 1,000 years. We must be meek and obedient to the King of kings. I pray that you and I long for the return of our King and we share this gospel of Kingdom with the hopeless world.
Dear Friend, get ready! The Kingdom is at hand!
Have a bliss!
And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years. (Revelation 20:4~6)
