DFO 2292 10/86—That Even Destroy the Millennium!
1. SO THE END OF THE MILLENNIUM IS NOT QUITE SO BEAUTIFUL as the beginning, & it has a pretty sad ending!—Except that finally & forever all the wicked on Earth are annihilated & the Devil is cast into Hell to stay! The Saints then have the complete victory over all the wicked, & all the wicked on Earth are completely destroyed in the Fire Flood‚ the surface burned over, all the junk & pollution consumed & the Earth's surface completely remade!—And there's nobody left but us, all the good folks, the Saints!
2. EVEN IN THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT WHICH FOLLOWS, only those who are written in the Book of Life will be chosen to live on the surface of the Earth & replenish it! They'll be only the ones that God knows are going to be His believers & followers‚ & all the rest are cast into Hell in the Second Death!
3. SO THOSE ARE THE AMAZING THINGS THAT I'VE BEEN GETTING ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM!—That it's going to wind up just about as bad as this dispensation! It's another illustration, demonstration & manifestation of the power of Sin without God‚ & the horrible evil effect it has on Man, until it's totally & completely eradicated, including its source!
4. THE DEVIL & ALL OF HIS PEOPLE‚ all of his evil demons‚ imps & devils are all completely gone & done away with, so that nobody is left except those who are born-again Saints & those who are going to be definitely saved out of the resurrection of the Dead, the Second Resurrection at the Great White Throne Judgement. Only those written in the Book of Life will then be spared, those whom God knows are not going to be Rebels & not going to become evil etc., but will be healed by our Leaves from the Tree of Life! (Rev.22:2) Hallelujah! Thank You Jesus!
5. THEY APPARENTLY HAVE HAD THEIR CHANCE, & you might say served their time, perhaps in Hell or Purgatory or whatever, & therefore God is going to release them because they are undoubtedly to become saved. They're written in the Book of Life‚ so the Lord releases them at the Great White Throne Judgement & they are placed onto the surface of the Earth outside the City to be healed & saved!
6. SO THAT'S HOW I SEE IT‚ & IT'S BEEN AMAZING TO ME, BECAUSE I NEVER THOUGHT OF SOME OF THOSE THINGS BEFORE! But as I have to try to describe it & see it, those are the things that the Lord has been showing me about the Future & about the Millennium! It will begin really like Heaven-on-Earth‚ but once again it'll end almost like Hell-on-Earth, sad to say! But thank God‚ we don't have to worry about that right now, not for a long time after the beginning of the Millennium!
7. BUT GOD HAS GOT TO GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO MAKE THEIR CHOICE, the rest of the people who never had a chance. But it's just to show that sin is an evil seed & it's horrible! This lesson is to teach the whole Universe how bad it is to rebel against God & to disobey Him!—How evil Man is worse than a ferocious beast when let loose! His heart is continually evil & his thoughts are continually to do evil, reminding you of what the Lord said about people before the Flood! (Gen.6:5)
8. SO THAT'S WHAT I SEE FOR THE FUTURE! I'm beginning to tell the end from the beginning. We've had a lot about the beginning & its beauty & all that, & what a wonderful relief it's going to be to have a righteous Government! All the curse is gone & everything is wonderful & beautiful! But those few Rebels that we start out with, they're going to have children & they're going to increase in population, until apparently by the end of the Millennium there are whole nations of them who are rebelling & chafing at the controls of God!
9. DO YOU SEE THE PICTURE GOD HAS OF THEM IN THE 2ND CHAPTER OF PSALMS? It gives you the whole picture!: "Why do the heathen rage, & the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the Earth set themselves, & the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, & against His Anointed, saying, 'Let us break their bands asunder, & cast away their cords from us!' He that sitteth in the Heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath‚ & vex them in His sore displeasure.
10. "YET HAVE I SET MY KING UPON MY HOLY HILL OF ZION. I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, 'Thou art My Son; this day have I begotten Thee. Ask of Me, & I shall give Thee the heathen for Thine inheritance, & the uttermost parts of the Earth for Thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel!’ Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the Earth. Serve the Lord with fear, & rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son‚ lest He be angry, & ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him."
11. HOW REBELLIOUS THEY STILL ARE AS THEY TRY TO LIBERATE THEMSELVES FROM THE KINGDOM OF GOD!—They even look on Satan as their Saviour when he comes to save them from the Kingdom of God! They actually think because they're so numerous & have become so powerful again & have their revived technology & cities & all the rest, that they can finally really defy their rulers & attack the Millennial Saints‚ who are, of course, only human, natural, normal people who have accepted the Lord during the Millennium.
12. THEY THINK THEY CAN ONCE AGAIN TRY TO OVERCOME THE SAINTS & RULE THE WORLD! But this time God is done with them! He saves the Saints & obviously takes them home to Heaven where we are, & then just completely gives up on the World & all the wicked as a hopeless case, burns it all up & starts all over again with a New Earth!
13. BUT THAT'S BEEN KIND OF A SHOCK TO ME, SOMETHING I HAD NEVER REALISED BEFORE! But as we were trying to really find the answers & pray & ask the Lord to lead & guide us, I ran across these Scriptures that I never understood before! (See Rev.6:12-14; Rev. 16:17-21; 2Pe.3:10) I realised there's going to be a revival of Babylon, a revival of evil forces, a revival of evil cities & a revival of wickedness etc. at the end of the Millennium! There're going to be the seeds of it even in the beginning, & then it's going to gradually grow just like it has in past dispensations.—Just like it did after the Flood, just like it did after Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden. Each time it's grown & grown again!
14. WHAT A PICTURE! WHAT AN ILLUSTRATION OF HOW BAD WICKEDNESS IS, HOW BAD EVIL IS, HOW BAD SIN IS!—How it poisons every generation, every dispensation! Every era in which God has allowed it, it has poisoned & ruined & destroyed them! What a terrific illustration to the whole Universe, or whoever else there is out there that needs to know, that crime doesn't pay‚ that sin is not good for people & rebellion against God is evil‚ & evil grows & destroys them each time in the end!
15. IT DESTROYED THEIR LANGUAGE & THEIR POWER & STRENGTH & FELLOWSHIP AT BABEL! (Gen.11:1-9) It destroyed nearly all of them in the Water Flood! (Gen.6:11-13)—And so on down through the Ages! Many times it got so bad that it completely destroyed whole peoples & nations! This time it threatens to destroy the Earth itself with their crazy monstrous bombs & insane madmen's dreams of destruction! God's got to stop them before they will blow up the World!—They could, if He didn't stop them, but He does, thank God!
16. IN THE MILLENNIUM IT WILL BE WONDERFUL FOR A LONG TIME! But little by little the evil seeds of sin will grow again & men will become wicked again & grow & multiply until they have resurrected Babylon & gained in power & control whole nations, even rebelling against the Kingdom of God!
17. THE LORD ALLOWS IT BECAUSE HE HAS TO ALLOW THEM FREE WILL & CHOICE IN THE COMING MILLENNIAL DISPENSATION, just as He does now. But it always seems that sin is inborn & Man is naturally & normally wicked! Therefore wickedness grows & the wicked population grows, & the Broadways to Hell grow filled with them until "many there be that enter therein" to go to their destruction! (Mat.7:13)
18. SO THAT IN THE END GOD HAS TO COMPLETELY DESTROY THEM & EVEN THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH until there is nothing of Natural Man left—no more natural, normal Earth people! There will only be the saved spirits & spiritual people, righteous Saints, saved, born-again—even those resurrected in the Second Resurrection that will be saved because they are in the Book of Life!—And we'll have a new World‚ a New Earth & a New Heaven wherein dwelleth righteousness! (2Pe.3:13) Praise the Lord!—Amen?
