10 The Millennium

How God Will Make Global Warming a Tremendous Blessing

God gave mankind this earth and he commanded us to:  Genesis 2:15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. Yet we have managed to destroy this earth beyond repair.

Today many are deeply concerned about changes in the weather patterns and a potential increase in the sea level.  Yet an even greater danger comes from the massive pollution of our dying air and oceans.  

During the 42 month tribulation vast numbers of people will die, there is no question about that; and if God does not intervene all life will perish off the earth. 

One could assume that such mass death will be the result of war and the effects of war will certainly kill vast numbers, but the fact is that the earth itself is dying.  Our forests are being destroyed and our seas are being polluted to the point that all sea life is endangered.   

How long can life survive if our forests are largely depleted and the seas can no longer produce oxygen?   While global warming is a concern to many the awful truth is that our earth is in the process of dying and that we can do nothing about it.  Even now there is almost ho hope of saving this earth and its life. 

 

The Earth Transformed

Today’s weather patterns are based on the circulation of the air, which is established by the high mountain ranges.  The mighty towering Himalayas block the rain from central Asia turning vast areas into virtual desert and thereby causing the devastating monsoon rains in India and BanglaDesh. 

When Christ comes there will be massive earthquakes around the world and many of the high mountains will be drastically lowered (Ez 38:20, Is 40:4).   This is the beginning of resetting the world’s climate to bring great prosperity to the earth! 

As a matter of personal speculation, since all things are going to be restored it is entirely possible that the movements of the earth and moon would be restored back to the original twelve equal 30 day months making one complete 360 day year which existed before the time of Hezekiah. Such a resetting of orbits would drastically affect te surface of the earth causing unbelievably massive earthquakes.

Besides demonstrating the power of Almighty God, the surface of the earth would be recreated in such a fashion as to completely change weather patterns, water and cool  the earth’s deserts and warm the frozen wastes making them suitable for use by mankind.

Think of it, if the height of the Himalayas was greatly reduced there would be no more devastating Asian monsoon downpours and floods, and the vast deserts of Asia would be properly watered [absorbing vast quantities of water] and bringing forth abundantly!  This and the lowering of other mountain ranges on the earth will completely change weather patterns around the world.

Imagine the vast deserts of Asia, Australia, Africa and the Americas being amply watered.  Imagine how much water these arid lands could absorb!   

Now think global warning; what a blessing the melting of the ice in the far north and south would be in opening up vast areas of previously frozen lands to human use, especially if all that water went to water the earth’s deserts and arid lands instead of raising sea levels! 

Think about the vast deserts being made productive, the northern sea passages being opened, and the vast tundra becoming useful agricultural or grazing land!   Think about the vast resources buried under ice which would become available for use, and the burgeoning life in the future for today’s frozen or arid lands!   

Then consider that curses like biting insects and agricultural pests and weeds will be removed and even the animals will have their wild natures changed to become peaceful with humanity and each other.

Isaiah 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 11:7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

11:8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.

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.

All people will live by every Word of God and God’s enabling Spirit will be poured out on all flesh (Joel 2:28), changing the nature of people and animals.  No more working hard only to lose to thieves, no more fears for the security of our lives or families, no more terrible diseases, wars or suffering! 

LORD do come very quickly and deliver us!

A fabulous new world is about to be born, by the delivering power of our Mighty God!

 

On the Feast of Pentecost the New Covenant will be established in its fullness.

Since physical Israel could not obey God her Husband and kept wondering astray into the adultery of following others contrary to the Word of God;  God promises to make a New Covenant with pysical Israel, as it is written:

Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord:

31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

Also see Jeremiah 32:37-41, Ezekiel 11:19 and Ezekiel 36:26. 

In this New Covenant, sin may be repented of and a true efficacious atonement will come through the application of the sacrifice of the Lamb of God, who was the very Creator God made flesh. 

This New Covenant with all Israel will then be extended to all mankind as humanity is grafted into Israel by their repentance and commitment to live by every Word of God, as the law says:   

Exodus 12:48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.

This sincere repentance and redemption by the sacrifice of the Lamb of God brings the enabling gift of  God’s Spirit, which will be poured out on all flesh (Joel 2:28).  See the Pentecost study

 

The Millennial Kingdom of God

Jesus Christ will resurrect his faithful and change them to spirit and then he will take them to the Marriage of the Lamb in heaven where they will be instructed further and organized, and their responsibilities conferred on each one at the heavenly marriage feast (Rev 15, Rev 19).

Brethren, on this awesome occasion of a wonderful banquet of celebration will be given by God the Father for the Son and for all those chosen to be a part of his resurrected bride!

Over the about 45 days of this wedding celebration, the seven last plagues will be poured out on the earth, and when that process has been completed; Jesus Christ will come to the earth WITH his resurrected bride to put down all wickedness and to rule the earth together in godly righteousness (Jude 1:14). 

When he returns with his resurrected chosen, Christ will totally destroy the Babylonian Mysteries system (Dan 2).

Then he will wait until the Feast of Pentecost; and on that Feast, the Kingdom of God will be established and the Holy Spirit will be poured out on all flesh.  See the Pentecost study

Then the nations, now freed from the deception of Satan and humbled, will seek out the Light of the LORD, and as they do so the whole earth will be abundantly blessed.  Then God will pour out his Spirit upon all flesh and all shall know him. 

Even the very nature of the wild beasts will be changed to a peaceable nature and the land will be healed and become abundantly fruitful.

Isaiah 2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain [government] of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains [above all other governments], and shall be exalted above the hills [local governments]; and all nations shall flow unto it.

2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

2:4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

2:5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

 

Messiah the Christ

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

11:3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

11:5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

11:7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

11:8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.

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.

 

Psalm 67

God’s mercies and blessings on his faithful will be made known to all humanity when the dead are resurrected.

Psalm 67:1 God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.

The ways of God will be revealed to all peoples and they will seek to live by every Word of God which shall be their saving health

67:2 That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.

When the King of kings comes and rules all nations all humanity will praise him for his justice in ruling all nations by the righteous Word of God. 

67:3 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.  67:4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.

67:5 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.  67:6 Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.  67:7 God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

 

Psalm 72

Psalm 72:1 Give [teach] the king thy judgments [God’s Word], O God, and thy righteousness [God’s Word] unto the king’s son.

In the Kingdom of God Messiah will rule the whole earth and the resurrected David will rule all Israel while the resurrected saints will rule all nations in the righteousness of every Word of God

72:2 He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.

72:3 The mountains [national governments will bring peace and not war] shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills [local governments will teach the righteous Word of God], by righteousness.

The King of kings and his Bride [the resurrected chosen] will rule the nations in the righteousness of every Word of God

72:4 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.

God the Father and Messiah the Christ will be honored and greatly respected and obeyed forever

72:5 They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.

When the nations turn to live by every Word of God, the whole earth will be blessed by the righteousness of God and the rule of Messiah the King of kings.  God’s Spirit will rain down upon the earth and the physical rains will fall in due season.

72:6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.

In the millennium peace will flourish and when God the Father comes down to the cleansed earth, peace and the righteousness of every Word of God shall flourish forever

72:7 In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth. 72:8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.

Every enemy of God who refuses to live by every Word of God,  will either sincerely repent or they will be destroyed forever.

72:9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust. 72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.  72:11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.

72:12 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.

When  Christ comes he will deliver all those who were poor in the spirit of pride and stubborn self-will and who hungered and thirsted to live by every Word of God.  Christ will raise them up from death to life eternal 

72:13 He [Messiah the Christ] shall spare the poor [in the spirit of self will] and needy [who hunger and thirst after godliness], and shall save the souls [lives] of the needy. 72:14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood [the death of the righteous is precious to God, because God will resurrect them from their rest] be in his sight.

Jesus Christ [Hebrew:  Yeshua Mashiach]  was resurrected to become the King of kings, and the chosen who loved and lived by every Word of God, will arise in the resurrection to eternal life as spirit.

72:15 And he shall live [to reign as King of kings], and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.

When Christ comes after the devastation of the tribulation, the remnant of Israel will be a mere handful of her former self, but from that handful a great harvest [mighty nations] shall spring forth, like a tree barely able to stand, shaking for the abundance of its fruit.

72:16 There shall be an handful of corn [grain] in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.

Jesus Christ the King of kings shall rule under God the Father; forever

72:17 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.

72:18 Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.  72:19 And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.

Blessings on the earth

The wondrous Kingdom of God described!

Isaiah 35:1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. 35:2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.

Exhort and encourage the people to an enthusiastic zeal for the Lord God of Abraham and Jacob, who will deliver his zealously faithful people!

Those who are being persecuted by the proud:  Be Strong in a wholehearted zeal to live by every Word of God!

35:3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.

Christ IS coming and he will deliver all repentant humanity.

35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 35:6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.

The parched land will be like a pool of water; and the spiritually parched will be filled with the waters of salvation [the Holy Spirit of God]!

35:7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.

The way will be opened for all those who seek to come to God; this is a type of opening up the way to Salvation to all peoples (Joel 2:28)!

35:8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

Deliverance is at hand for the sincerely repentant who seek out their God and all his ways to keep them with a whole and enthusiastic heart!  May God speed that day!

35:9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: 35:10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

 

Messiah the Christ; Mighty to Deliver

The Greatness of God!

The coming of Christ, repentance, forgiveness and the establishment of the Kingdom of God

Isaiah 40:1 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. 40:2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare [correction] is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.

John Baptist prepared the way for the coming and ministry of Yeshua [Jesus Christ] in the first century; and another similar person will teach enthusiastic zeal to live by every Word of God; preparing the way for our Mighty One to come to his people in this latter day.

Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: 4:6 And he shall turn the heart of [turning God the Father to the people]  the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children [teach the people repentance to turn to God the Father] to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Luke 1:17  And he [John Baptist, and the latter day Elijah] shall go before him [Christ] in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready [to prepare the people for the first and second  coming of Christ] a people prepared for the Lord.

Isaiah 40:3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway [preparing the way for the people to accept Christ at his coming, by teaching repentance from sin] for our God.

Those who are lowly and humbly zealous to live by every Word of God shall be exalted and shall rise up to meet him in the resurrection of the chosen. The governments and mighty [mountains and hills] of the earth shall be humbled and brought low. The roughness of wickedness shall be destroyed and made clean and smooth in righteousness.

40:4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: 40:5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

All physical things are momentary and transient, passing away in a short time; the ONLY things that really matter, that are lasting and of real value; are the spiritual things of God.

40:6 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: 40:7 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass. 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

Let the faithful messengers and watchmen of God cry aloud!!!  Let them proclaim the righteousness of the Word of God to everyone!!!

The law will go forth from Jerusalem

Isaiah 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

Isaiah 40:9 O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!

God will reward all those who are faithfully zealous to live by every Word of God.  His reward will be eternal life and a good office in God’s kingdom.

The work of Christ is to remove all the blemishes of sin and destroy all tolerance for false lying doctrines which separate the people from God the Father.

40:10 Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

Messiah the Christ will gather his chosen elect and feed them with the words of life eternal; he will also gather all humanity when he comes and feed them with the words of life, the sound doctrine of God the Father and Jesus Christ, in the kingdom of God.

Jesus Christ will NEVER tolerate the sin of false doctrine in his kingdom!

40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd [the goodness of his word]: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

Why do men rebel and sin against the Word of God? Why will those who call themselves by God’s name exalt themselves above God’s Word?  Why will they tolerate false teachings instead of rebuking lies and every false way and sin?

40:12 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? 40:13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him? 40:14 With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?

40:15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing. 40:16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering. 40:17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

40:18 To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?

The wicked make their own gods in their ignorance; which one of them is like the Eternal?

Which one of the men or organizations that we idolize comes as close to Christ for righteousness and greatness; as a speck of dust in comparison to the entire universe?

40:19 The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains. 40:20 He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image [of wood], that shall not be moved.

How is it that we, who are supposed to have God’s Spirit and understand his ways, do not know his might and glory and power and wisdom and righteousness?

Have we not heard of his wonders and how he parted the sea for his followers and destroyed the wicked?  Can we not remember that those who tasted of his glorious deliverance and then turned back to Egypt, were destroyed in the wilderness?

40:21 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? 40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle [yes they knew the world was round from most ancient times] of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers [for multitudes]; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

The proud and the strong among men are nothing before him!

40:23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.

The wicked mighty men of the earth will vanished away, before the Glory of Christ.

40:24 Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.

Who is like our God? Who is mighty to save his zealously faithful?

40:25 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.

40:26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host [the stars of the universe] by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.

Why do the leaders and elders say that they are righteous in the sight of God as they do what is right in their own eyes and turn aside from God’s Word to follow after the false traditions of men?

40:27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God? 40:28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

God will save his zealously faithful who are diligent to learn of him and to live by every Word of God

40:29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

In the tribulation, the physically strong young men who rely on their own strength and ways, will faint and fall in their affliction

40:30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

The zealous to live by every Word of God will be strong in HIM, to overcome sin!  Our Mighty One, our Refuge, our Salvation, our High Tower of Strength; will deliver his zealously faithful virgin [the faithful who abstain from false teachings and sin] bride from death and the grave!

40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

 Isaiah 60

A prophecy of the coming of Christ to Jerusalem, the city’s restoration and its exaltation as the capital of the entire earth

This is a prophecy of the coming of Christ, who is here revealed as part of the LORD [YHVH] family. 

Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light [Messiah the Christ (John 1)] is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon [Christ is come to Jerusalem] thee. 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 60:3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

All nations shall flow to Jerusalem to worship God at the Ezekiel Temple; and the resurrected chosen will be teachers [kings and priests] of the righteousness of every Word of God.

60:4 Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side. 60:5 Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear [respect God and the Word of God], and [the sincerely repentant  shall be blessed] be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea [a representation of all nations covering the earth] shall be converted unto [all nations shall come to Christ and to God the Father] thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee [shall serve Christ and worship God the Father through living by every Word of God].

The whole earth will come to worship God the Father at the Ezekiel Temple in Jerusalem

60:6 The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the LORD. 60:7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.

All the tribes of Israel will be restored to Palestine, the land of promise

60:8 Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows? 60:9 Surely the isles [far off nations] shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee. 

Messiah the Christ will glorify Jerusalem as his capital and the place of God’s Temple].

60:10 And the sons of strangers [foreigners and Gentiles] shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee [will serve God and help build up Jerusalem]: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.

People from all nations will be continually coming up to Jerusalem to help build the city and Temple, and to worship God the Father and exalt the King of kings

60:11 Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.

All nations will sincerely repent and come to serve God in his holy city, Jerusalem

60:12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

60:13 The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet [the House of God]  glorious. 60:14 The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending [the knee in submission] unto thee [the capital of the earth, Jerusalem the city of God]; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee; The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

60:15 Whereas thou has been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.

The millennial [and through eternity] Jerusalem will be fed by the gifts of nations from far away.  Again Messiah [Jesus Christ] is called YHVH!

60:16 Thou shalt also suck the milk of the [be nourished by the nations] Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD [YHVH] am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

The city and the earth will be filled with the righteousness of the whole Word of God; and the teachers and rulers of the people will be righteous, teaching all people to live by every Word of God.

60:17 For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness.

The holiness of God will fill the city, and the whole earth shall be filled with the salvation of God and his praise.

Isaiah begins to prophesy of the New Jerusalem and the Eighth Day Feast; which represents eternity with mankind at peace and in harmony with God the Father.

60:18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

60:19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. 60:20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

60:21 Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. 60:22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time.

 

The Earth Rejoices at the Coming of the LORD

Psalm 97

The Kingdom of God will be established and on a future Feast of Shavuot or Pentecost the New Covenant will be extended to all humanity; and Messiah the Christ shall rule all nations as King of kings and Lord of all lords.

Psalm 97:1 The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

At his coming the earth will  tremble and when his throne and Kingdom are established; on  the Feast of Pentecost, God’s Spirit will be poured out on all flesh (Joel 2:28) and all people shall rejoice.

97:2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne. 97:3 A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about. 97:4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled. 97:5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

The glory of the Lord

97:6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

Those who trust in their own ways and idols of wood and stone or idols of men and will be confounded and brought to humble contrition; and all people will worship the Eternal.

97:7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.

All physical and spiritual Israel will rejoice in Messiah the King, and all nations will be humbled before God

97:8 Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD. 97:9 For thou, LORD [YHVH both Messiah the Christ and God the Father], art high above all the earth: thou [YHVH both Messiah the Christ and God the Father] art exalted far above all gods.

A good understanding and God’s ultimate deliverance is given to all those who hate and loathe all evil; and love, follow and live by every Word of God.

97:10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. 97:11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

True godly righteousness is living by every Word of God

97:12 Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

 

Psalm 98

A song for joy that Messiah has come and established the Kingdom of God as King of kings over all nations.

First Christ saved men by being made flesh and giving his life for the sincerely repented sins of humanity;  then he saves Israel and all humanity from destruction by coming with his resurrected chosen and destroying the destroyers of the earth. 

When Christ comes in his power all nations will see and quickly turn to the righteousness of living by every Word of God and a New World Order of righteousness will be born.

Psalm 98:1 O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.

Messiah the Christ will teach the only way to salvation which is sincere repentance, the application of Christ’s sacrifice and embracing the righteousness of living by every Word of God.

98:2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.

After their correction all Israel [both physical and spiritual] will sincerely repent and God will pour out his mercy on them and then on all humanity to the ends of the earth

98:3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

Let every mouth rejoice and every person sing, because repentance and eternal salvation is opened to all then living humanity!  and will be opened up to all who have ever lived in due time!

98:4 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. 98:5 Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm. 98:6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.

Let every breath be employed in rejoicing over the salvation of the LORD, let the earth herself rejoice for the time of her decay is past and her desolate places will flourish! 

98:7 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. 98:8 Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together

May God speed the day!

98:9 Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.

 

Psalm 99

Let every mouth rejoice for the God of Moses and Aaron is coming to reign over the earth from Jerusalem! 

Let all flesh rejoice and praise God that Messiah comes and he shall reign over all the earth in godly justice as King of kings.  His mighty power will be employed to do justice, to teach all people to live by every Word of God and to extend eternal salvation to a repentant humanity.

Psalm 99:1 The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.  99:2 The LORD is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people. 99:3 Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.

99:4 The king’s [Messiah the King of kings] strength [will be employed to do justice] also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.

99:5 Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool  [the earth is God’s footstool (Isaiah 66:1) and all the earth shall obey the Father and the Son]; for he is holy.

The Messiah the Christ [and God the Father] is YHVH on whom Moses, Aaron and Samuel called, and they will serve God the Father and Christ again in the resurrection 

99:6 Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.

The YHVH who led Israel in the cloud and in the fire is the very Messiah the Christ who gave up his God-hood to become flesh as Jesus Christ and die in effectual sacrifice for the repented sins of humanity; he has been resurrected back to spirit and he will come to the earth to rule all nations as King of kings.

He is well deserving of being King over humanity because he gave up his God-hood to become flesh, sacrificing himself for the sins of humanity, and he was then resurrected and returned to his past glory.

99:7 He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.

The Being who became Jesus Christ corrects those who follow ways contrary to the Word of God but he forgives the sincerely repentant.

99:8 Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.

99:9 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship [exalt and obey] at his holy hill [the Temple; the place of God’s presence]; for the LORD our God is holy.

 

Psalm 100

Almost all nations and people will sincerely repent and greatly rejoice, entering into eternal life in the family of God; serving God through living by every Word of God.

Psalm 100:1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.  100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

The eternal YHVH family has made us and is God alone and is to be exalted and obeyed forever. We are to follow NO other; we are to live by every Word of God the Father!

100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

100:4 Enter into his gates [His household, His family] with thanksgiving, and into his courts [presence] with praise: be thankful unto him [for creating us and for saving us to eternal life], and bless his name.

God is merciful to all those who turn to God in sincere repentance to STOP all sin and to live by every Word of God the Father.

100:5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

May God speed the day!
