The Thousand Year Reign of Christ- the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD

God who in the past spoke to us through His prophets, has in these last days spoken unto us by his Son. During the Thousand Year Reign of Christ, He who is appointed as heir of all things, will also be recognized as the one who made all things, including the world (Heb 1:1-2).

Isaiah 11:9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

The Thousand Year Reign of Christ is a literal event that occurs upon this present earth with the existing heavens and seas, although there will be many changes that occur. There are only two complete creation events, and a restoration of the first creation is necessary to repair the damage done to what once was a beautiful planet. Refer to the article entitled sign of the times, and then add to that a probable nuclear confrontation, and the damage done to planet earth by means of the continual wars including the battle of Armageddon, and it becomes clear why the restoration will be required.

In the first creation, God created the heavens and the earth (Gen 1:1). Mankind can choose evil or righteousness during this time period.

In the second creation, God creates a new Heaven and a new Earth, as well as a new holy city called the New Jerusalem. The Thousand Year Reign of Christ occurs before the place that Jesus went to prepare for His children is revealed. This final and eternal destination is reserved for His Elect. The righteous will enter into a timeless, sinless and eternal fellowship with the Lord God.

There are many unique features of this second creation, that are very different from that of the first.

  • There is no more sea (Rev 21:1).
  • The first heaven and earth are replaced by the second after the millennial reign of Christ, and the New Jerusalem descends from Heaven (Rev 21:2).
  • There is no longer a sun nor a moon (Rev 21:23).
  • There is no longer a night or darkness (Rev 21:25).
  • The only ones who occupy New Jerusalem are those whose names are written in the Lambs Book of Life (Rev 21:27).
  • There shall be no more curse (Rev 22:3).
  • The righteous shall have access to the Tree of Life (Rev 22:2).

During the Thousand Year Reign of Christ, there are several characteristics that show that this creation of a new heaven and earth (or land), is a restoration of the first creation, and not the second creation.

  • We look forward to a new heaven and earth where Christ will bring in everlasting righteousness (2 Peter 3:13; Dan 9:24).
  • There are seas during this time period, but the second earth has no more seas, but instead the River of the Water of Life (Rev 20:13; Rev 21:1; Rev 22:1, 2, 17).
  • There still are tears shed, sorrow to be had, and death still occurs (Rev 21:4; Isa 65:20).
  • This time is an answer to our prayer: thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven (Mathew 6:10).
  • The Elect will receive a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give to all that love his appearing (2 Tim 4:8).
  • There are still seasons (Zec 14:8).
  • The remnant of the nations that came against Jerusalem will come to worship Christ in Jerusalem (Zec 14:16-17).
  • Not all reign with Christ, and those that disobey will be punished ( Zec 14:17-19).
  • Those of the nations will learn the ways of the Lord (Isa 2:2-3).
  • During the Thousand Year Reign of Christ, those who were slain for the Word of Christ live and reign with Him (Rev 20:4).
  • This is the promise of  the inheritance that the Elect who are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise receive at His coming (Eph 1:13; Eph 3:6; 1 John 2:25).

Gal 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

The great flood was necessary to remove all things that were an offence to God. Likewise at the Thousand Year Reign of Christ, the new heavens and earth that Christ creates at His second coming are cleansed of iniquity and all things that offend.

Matt 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity

The Thousand Year Reign of Christ is a time for the Redeemed that will Inherit Zion. The Elect who are also God’s chosen ones, will take part in the true Second Gathering of the Israel of God.

    destined you are becoming more confused by the day — you have twisted God’s plan of salvation into a knot.

    Rev 20:4 does not speak of a thousand year reign OF CHRIST. It speaks of the reign of the MARTYRS with Christ, those who had witnessed for Him and had been beheaded. Since they had been beheaded, the implication is that they were dead, and had passed from mortal life to immortal life. As Christ had ascended to the Father in Acts 1:9, then Christ was already in heaven with the Father. So the martyrs who had passed into life immortal were with Christ in HEAVEN…. not on earth. And, they were to reign with him for a period of time symbolized as a thousand years that meant a full or complete time. The 1,000 years was NOT LITERAL.

    Christ’s reign is not limited to a 1,000 years, nor is it an earthly physical kingdom! He reigns from the right hand of the Father in heaven above, and He exercises His judgment from the throne of God above.

    A study of the OT will show that in prophesy “one thousand” meant full, complete, perfect. It was only literal when people, coins, cattle, etc were being counted.

    I also have defined the symbols of the “sea” (gentile nations), the “sun” and “moon” (ruling authorities), the “stars” (the tribes of Israel), and other symbols of Revelation in my posts “The Signs of Revelation” Parts I – VIII also at my blog.
