Doyal Gudgel: Millennialism (1965)

Millennialism teaches the Jews rejected Jesus in the middle of his earthly ministry. This rejection made it impossible to fulfill the prophecy and the purposes of God at that time. Therefore God stopped the prophetic clock, and postponed the fulfillment of his promise, until the second coming of Christ. The Church was created instead, as a sort of an interim measure.


Millennialism

By Doyal Gudgel
1965


INTRODUCTION

The word millennium means a thousand years. Premillennialists come in so many different varieties that it is impossible to describe, much less discuss them here. We will confine our references to the dispensationalist school of Millennialism. This is the type taught in the Scofield Reference Bible. Premillennialist churches of differing denominations hold this view. The view of the first coming of Christ, entertained by these folks, is as significant as their notion of the second coming of Christ, and lays the groundwork for it.

They believe Christ came the first time to establish an earthly kingdom among the Jews. Ascend the earthly throne of David. Give to the Jews the land God promised to the descendants of Abraham. Which they allege was never completely delivered in the Old Testament period. The Jews would then rule over all the earth.

Millennialism teaches the Jews rejected Jesus in the middle of his earthly ministry. This rejection made it impossible to fulfill the prophecy and the purposes of God at that time. Therefore God stopped the prophetic clock, and postponed the fulfillment of his promise, until the second coming of Christ. The Church was created instead, as a sort of an interim measure.

Chapter 1
The Millennium

Is it a sinister assault upon the family of Jesus Christ? It was
necessary to research the old encyclopedias, printed before the
modern liberals distorted scriptural truths. The most valuable
encyclopedias were those put out before the turn of the century.
Before they were filled with modern Isims. A case in point is the
volume of the Universal Encyclopedia and Atlas. In one paragraph it
manages to set forth the entire problem. Later encyclopedias take
several volumes to cover the same subject.. For instance, the
Encyclopedia Britannica, put out some 15 years ago, took two volumes
and many chapters to cover the simple subject.

The simple subject is the Millennium, commonly known as
Chilliasm. The thousand years of the Messiahs reign on earth.
Millennialists believe this is taught in Revelation 20: 1-7. The
Universal Encyclopedia has this to say about Millennialism: There
are two theories, to which all the numerous theories on this subject,
may be reduced.

One, the literal. According to the Jewish form, which
was taught 200 years before Christ, The Messiah should reign
in Jerusalem, The Jews, then restored to Palestine, will
enjoy remarkable and continuous prosperity.
In its Christian form, the so called Chilliasm, as found in
Papaias and others, Christians no less than Jews, shall
receive temporal blessings with the Jews. These views
persisted in the church and were revived by the radical party
among the early Protestants. But the sober sense of the
Church was against them.

Two. The spiritual theory; declares that the number
1,000 is used in scripture to denote an indefinitely large
number. So the 1000 years in Rev. 20: 1-7, is not to be taken
literally, but is figurative of that long period of spiritual
prosperity, which the church shall enjoy before the coming
of Christ and the end of time.

Let’s address our attention now to the Jewish Encyclopedia, so we
may get the Jewish insight on the Millennial theory. Because most
Christians think, or have been taught that the Millennial theory is of
Christian Origins.
Please keep in mind what Titus taught us in the New Testament
Titus 1:10, “

For there are many unruly and vain talkers and
deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths
must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things
which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

And we go on to verse 14 which says;

Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men,
that turn from the truth”.

Now, what does the Jewish Encyclopedia have to say on the
millennial theory?

The reign of peace, lasting a thousand years, which
will precede the last judgment and the future life. This
concept has achieved a special importance in the Christian
church, where it has been termed Chilliasm, designating the
dominion of Jesus with the glorified and risen saints, will
rule for a thousand years. Chilliasm, or the idea of the
thousand years is never, the less, older than the Christian
church. For the belief of a thousand years, at the end of
time, as a preliminary to the resurrection of the dead, was
held in Phariseeism. This concept is expressed in Jewish
literature in Enoch, etc.

The point here is; That the Jews inform us in their own
Encyclopedia, that the idea of the Millennium is actually older than
the Christian church itself. In other words it is not a Christian
Idea.

Christ scourged the Jews time and time again. For example in
Matt. 23: 13 he said

But woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites,

In 14 he said.

Woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites.

Again in 15,

Woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites.

Now let us direct our attention in our further study of the
millennial theory, to Who’s Who in World Jewry, Within the pages of
this Jewish Who’s Who, our attention is directed to Louis
Finkelstein. Now Louis Finkelstein is a Pharisees, pharisee, as well
as a Rabbis rabbi. He is noted throughout the world for his
reputation as a leader amongst Jews in America. He is so important to
the Jewish scheme of things in this country, that the President in
1970, had him give a Sunday service at the White House.
What has made Rabbi Finkelstein so famous? Well, one of his pet
hobbies is his tracing of the origins of the Pharisees. In this life,
he also wrote a book entitled “The Pharisees”. In his book “The
Pharisees, The Sociological Background of Their Faith, under the
subject of Judaism, Rabbi Finkelstein has this to say.

“Phariseeism became Talmudism, Talmudism became
medieval Rabbinism, and medieval Rabbinism became modern
Rabbinism. But, throughout these changes of names, inevitable
adaptation of customs, and adjustment of law, the spirit of the
ancient pharisees survived, unaltered.”

So there you have it. From the lips of the worlds renowned
Pharisee. A leader of Judaism, who tells us that the ancient
Pharisees; that is the Pharisee of Christ’s time, has survived right
up to this very moment. Let us be reminded from the lips of our Lord
and Saviour from Matt. 23: 14, and 15.

Woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites.

Let’s review the Millennial theory, as set forth by the Jews,
and compared it with the Millennial theory as set forth by the mislead
Christians. The Jews who started the millennial idea, stated David
would come back and sit on his earthly throne, then rule earthly
Jerusalem for a long period of time. The Jewish idiom for one thousand
years. But the mislead Christians, say that Christ was going to come
back and sit on David’s literal throne and rule a literal Jerusalem for
a thousand years. So the only difference between the two theories
is; David sits on the throne in the Jewish case, where the Judaized
Christian case has Christ sitting on the throne.
Now what is this all about? Why are the Jews so interested in
the Millennium? Why are the Jews so interested in Christians
promoting the Millennial idea? What could they be up to? Look
magazine of Jan 16, 1962 quotes, David Ben Gourion, then prime
minister of the state of Israel.

The imagine of the world in 1987, as traced in my
imagination: The cold war will be a thing of the past.
Internal pressure of the constant growing intelligentsia in
Russia, for more freedom, and pressure from the masses, for a
better living standard, may lead to a gradual
democratization of the Soviet Union. On the other hand the
increasing influence of the workers and farmers, and the
rising political importance of the men of science, may
transform the United States into a welfare state, with a
planned economy.

Western and eastern Europe will become a federation of
autonomous states having a socialist and democratic regime,
with the exception of the USSR. As a federated Eurasian
state, all other continents will become united in a world
alliance at whose disposal will be an international police
force. All armies will be abolished. There will be no more
wars. In Jerusalem a United Nations, a truly United Nations,
will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the Federated
Union of all continents. This will be the Supreme Court of
mankind. To settle all controversies among the federated
continent, as prophesied by Isaiah. Higher education will be
the right of all persons in the world. A pill to prevent
pregnancy will slow down the explosive natural increase in
China and India. And by 1987, the average life span of man
will reach 100 years.

Now, do you begin to see why the millennial idea, with the moving
of the seat of all world government and religious government to
Jerusalem, is so important to the Jews? Incidentally, Isaiah made no
such prophecy concerning spiritual Jerusalem, nor the millennial
theory for that matter. For the Jewish plan would put the whole
world under their earthly control, instead of the whole spiritual
world under Jesus Christ. For after all, it was Jesus Christ who said,
in John 14: 6.

I am the way the truth and the light. No man cometh to
the Father except by me.

Now you may say, no, this can not be, but let’s move out west to
Portland Oregon and read a letter to the editor, written by Ben
Madoivsky, prior to his death. What is so important about this
article? It is another case of a highly publicized Jew promoting the
Millennial theory.

Notice that article starts

Hippie millennium?

Ben wrote the following in the second paragraph.

Is it not possible the Hippies are the forerunners of the
Millennium as predicted in the scriptures?

Let us turn to the Word of God and see what it tells us about the
Millennium. That is, what they say of the thousand year reign of
Jesus Christ on this earth, after his second advent.
Now picking up the story, Let us turn to the Old Testament.
Gen. Chapter 12: 1.

Now the Lord had said unto Abraham, Get thee out of thy
country, and thy kindred, and from thy fathers house, unto a
land that I will show thee: 2. And I will make of thee a
great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name
great; And thou shalt be a blessing: 3. And I will bless
them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and
in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

Now please note particularly verse two. That the Lord promised
that he would make of Abram a great nation; and in verse 3. Abram was
promised all families of the earth would be blessed.
Your attention is directed to Genesis 17: 4. Where the Lord
said;

As for me, behold: my covenant is with thee. And thou shall
be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name be
anymore be called Abram, but the name shall be Abraham; For
a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make
thee exceedingly fruitful. And I will make nations of thee,
and Kings shall come out of thee.

Gal. 3: in the new Testament verse 8 tells us, the nations
portion was fulfilled for it reads;

And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the
heathen through faith, preached before the Gospel unto
Abraham, saying, In thee shall all the nations be blessed.

Now you all probably know the story of Moses, how he led the
Hebrew people out of bondage, that is, slavery in Egypt. So God
commissioned Moses to lead the Hebrew people from Egypt. Across the
Red Sea to freedom, in their march towards the promised land. Almost
immediately, after the Israelites crossed the Red Sea, they started
to murmur and rebel against Moses. Then God would punish them. They
would repent, and God would forgive them. Then in a short while, they
would rebel again. If you will study the pages of the Old Testament
you will find where this happens scores and scores of times.
Finally, the people rebelled so many times, that God decided to teach
them a lesson. At Mt. Sinai, notice in Gal 3:19, we are plainly told
why the law came. Lets read it together.

Wherefore then serveth the Law? It was added because of
transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise
was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a
mediator.

So the law was given because of the Hebrew people. We will pick
up the story of the seed, and the promise, and the hand of the
mediator, later on in this picture narration. So the law of Moses was
given because of transgression. It was given from God, through
Moses, to the Israelite people on Mt. Sinai. In receiving the law
Moses was separated from the people atop Mt. Sinai for forty days and
forty nights.
During the forty days and forty nights, that Moses was separated
from his people receiving the Law on Mt. Sinai, the Israelite people
pooled their rings and earrings and rebelled again against God by
building a golden calf: They knelt down before the idol and worshiped
it
As a result of the episode of the Israelite people building the
golden calf, God commanded Moses to slay score upon score of the
idolaters. Through the patience of God, the rest of the people were
forgiven their transgression. Only to rebel time and time again.
The estimate of the number of people leaving Egypt, is between
half a million to over a million. But only two over the age of 21, at
the time of the exodus, ever reached the promised land. All others
died, as the result of rebelling against God. Of the original group
only Caleb and Joshua, were allowed to enter the promised land.
Joshua took the place of Moses, after Moses died, and led the people
across the Jordan river into the promised land. Joshua 1: 1,2.

Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it
came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Joshua the son of Nun.
Moses’ minister, saying, 2. Moses my servant is dead; Now
therefore arise, go over this Jordan thou, and all this
people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the
people of Israel.

We do not have to guess whether or not the Israelites did obtain
all the land God promised them, for the Bible tells us so. Joshua
21: 43

And the Lord gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to
give unto their fathers; And they possessed it, and dwelt
therein.

This is a very important scripture, for it shows that God gave
the people of Israel the land, he promised them. And that they did
possess it. So as the Bible as your authority, don’t let anyone tell
you otherwise. But history was to repeat itself and the Israelite
people rebelled again and again. God would forgive them, and they
would rebel again. God forbad them from marrying the heathen people
about them. but he also forbad them from to intermarry between Hebrew
tribes. As set forth in Judges 21:

This astounded the Israelites. But again they disobeyed God
and intermarried with the heathen idol worshipers about them, and
also intermarried within their own tribes.
Later on a great ruler named David rose up amongst the Jews.
I’m sure you all know the story of David. David wanted to build a
temple to God, But God forbade it because David also had rebelled many
times against God, and was too much of a warrior. So God promised
David, that his son Solomon could build the temple . So Solomon did
build the temple. In spite of all it’s magnificence, and glory, and
the wisdom of Solomon, the people with Solomon again turned to
idolatry. So the Lord allowed the temple to be destroyed. As a result
of this continual rebellion, the twelve tribes which Joshua took
across the Jordan into the promised land, were to be divided. Ten
tribes formed the northern Kingdom of the House of Israel under King
Joabam. The two southern tribes became the tribe of Judah under
Solomon’s son Rehaboam, Soon thereafter the Assyrian nation captured
the ten northern tribes and carried them away to Assyrian slavery, or
bondage.
Then the Babylon kingdom grew in power, to the extent it overran
Assyria and in doing so it also absorbed the ten northern tribes.
Next, Babylonia captured the two southern tribes, and thus held all 12
tribes in captivity. The Hanging Gardens of Babylonia were one of
the seven wonders of the ancient world. The Babylonia people were a
wicked people, worshipped idols, and were an abomination to God. So
now, all the Israelite people, both the northern and southern tribes,
were being punished by God. Members of the 12 tribes living
together under the Babylonian captivity became fascinated with the
worldliness of the Babylonians and lost more of their faith in Gods
teaching. They became infatuated with the Babylonian religion. The
Babylonian religion, which is the traditions of men, is recorded in
the Talmud. The traditions of men is forbidden in the Bible. For it
is in opposition to the scriptures, as recorded in Mark chapter 7,
verses 6 through 8.

He answered and said unto them, well has Isaias prophesied of
you hypocrites, as it written, this people honor me with
their lips, but their heart is far from me. 7. Howbeit in
vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the
commandments of men. 8. For laying aside the commandments of
God, ye hold the traditions of men, as the washing of pots
and cups: and many other like things ye do. 9. And he said
unto them, full well ye reject the commandments of God, that
ye may keep your own tradition.

It took many volumes of the Talmud to record the tradition of their
God forbidden religion.
Hebrews of the 12 tribes again repented to God. Then God allowed
them to return from their Babylon captivity, to rebuild the temple in
Jerusalem. This is recorded in the book of Ezra and other places. But
especially in Ezra 1: 1 though 3.

Now in the first year of the reign of Cyrus King of Persia,
that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be
fulfilled, The Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus King of
Persia, and made a proclamation through all his Kingdom, and
put it also in writing, saying, 2. “Thus saith Cyrus King of
Persia, the Lord God of heaven has given me all the kingdoms
of the earth; And he has charged me to build him an house at
Jerusalem, which is in Judah. 3. Who is there among you of
all his people? his God be with him, and let him go up to
Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build a house to the Lord
God of Israel. (He is the God,) which is in Jerusalem.

Skipping along to verse 5.

Then rose up the chief of the fathers of Judah and Benjamin, And
the priests, and the Levites, with all them who’s the spirit that
God had raised, to go up to the build the house of the Lord which
is in Jerusalem.

So you see God was answering the repentant prayers of the Hebrews who
were in Babylon captivity.

Turning to Ezra Chapter 5: verse 1 and 2 we find, quote;

Then the prophets, Haggai the prophet, and Zechariah the son
of Iddo, prophesied unto the Jews that were in Judah and
Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, even unto
them. 2. Then rose up Zarabel The son of Shealtiel, and
Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and began to build the house of
God which is at Jerusalem: and with them were the prophets
of God helping them,.

Historians tells us the temple was completed between 520 and 516
before Christ. It was dedicated with great rejoicing. So the prophecy
of Jeremiah 33: 7 and 8 did come true, where it was prophesied
quote;

And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of
Israel to return, and will build them as at the first.
8. And I will cleanse them from all their iniquities,
whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all
their iniquities whereby they have sinned, and whereby they
have transgressed against me.

So you can see from the foregoing, neither the 10 northern
tribes, nor the 2 southern tribes, were ever lost physically. We saw
in correct chronological order of time, in the scriptures, where the
people of all 12 tribes would return to Israel and Judea and
Jerusalem. The Hebrew religious capitol. Therefore if anybody
tells you that the 12 tribes were physically lost, you will know by
the scriptures, that people telling such fabricated fables are indeed
spiritually lost themselves.
To wrap up this Spiritual truth, lets read together Ezekiel 37:
15 through 22.

15. The word of the Lord came again to me, saying, 16.
Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write
upon it. For Judah, and for the children of Israel his
companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For
Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel
his companions: 17. And join them one into the other into one
stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. 18. And when
the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying,
wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these? 19. Say
unto them. Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the
stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the
tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him,
even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and
they shall be one in mine hand. 20. And the sticks whereon
thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes. 21.
And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold I will
take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither
they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and being
them into their own land. 22. And I will make them one
nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king
shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two
nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any
more at all.

So you see he tribes were scattered out through Assyrian
captivity, out of Babylonian captivity. Then Babylonia captured
Assyria, and all 12 tribes were under Babylon captivity. Then were
allowed to return to Jerusalem as just shown. For the second time in
the Old Testament, God allowed the Hebrews to possess the land. Now
can there be any doubt in your mind that God did or did not keep his
word to the Hebrew people? You have been shown it in the Old
Testament twice, God gave the land to the people. Yet today we
still have Millennial theorists saying that the Jews must return to
Israel, as though it is the future, and yet it is in the past tense in
the Old Testament.
Now for a quick recap, You have been shown so far that the
Jewish people repeatedly were a rebellious people. The ten northern

tribes were never physically lost. That the land promised to the Jews
has been fulfilled in the Old Testament.

Jesus Fulfills Old Testament Prophecy

Now lets turn to the pages of the New Testament. For nowhere in
the Old Testament does it set forth the second coming of Christ. The
Old Testament only talks about the first coming of Christ. Which he
did do. Therefore, it is within the pages of scripture of the New
Testament, where we finds the complete story of the first coming of
Christ, as well as how the second coming will be announced. Gal 4: 4
we read:

But when the fullness of time was come, God sent forth his
son, made of a woman, made under the law.

Now lets just stop and absorb Gods teaching here. God is saying
that throughout the history of the world, this was the correct time
for him in his omnipotent knowledge to send his son down to the earth,
so the earth could be converted to the teaching of God through Jesus
christ. Lets go back and reread Gal. 4: 4

But when the fullness of time was come, God sent forth his
son, made of a woman, made under the law.

Matt 9: 37, 38.

Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is
plenteous but the labourers are few; 38. Pray ye therefore
the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers
into his harvest.

The scriptures reinforce the fact that God knew the correct time
to send his son into the earth. For the harvest is plentiful but the
workers are few. Then God sent his son, the Lord of the harvest to
send out workers into his harvest; knowing that it was the fullness
of time.

John 4: 34, says.

Jesus saith unto them. My meat is to do the will of him who
sent me, and to finish his work .

Jesus is saying that it is his pleasure, that it is his meat, to
do the will of the father, Who sent him at the right time to finish
his work here on the earth.

In Mark 1: 15, we read.

And saying, the time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is
at hand; repent ye, and believe the Gospel.

In the fulness of time, time is fulfilled. The kingdom of God is
at hand. That is just about to be set up. Believe the Gospel,
which is the New Testament, for it tells of the Kingdom of God which
is at hand. To come right after the death of Jesus Christ.

John 17: 4.

I have glorified thee on earth: I have finished the work
which thou hast gavest me to do.

We know from previous New Testament text, that God in the fullness
of time, and in his infinite knowledge, sent Christ to earth to save
man. Please notice in John chapter 17 Christ is praying to his
father, and verse 4 says:

I have glorified thee on earth .

Meaning that Jesus Christ glorified God to man on earth.

I have finished the work thou gavest me to do.

Christ’s work on earth is finished. So there is no reason for him
to come back to earth, as the millenniumists claim, for one thousand
years. Do you believe Christ? Or the Millenniumists? Amplifying
the previous statements Jesus goes on to say, from John 17: 11.

And now I am no more in the world. But these are in the
world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine
own name those whom thou hast given me. That they may be
one. As we are.

Here, Jesus is explaining that he is to be with his father in
heaven, and he wishes that all true scriptural Christians would be
with him in heaven. But the Millennialists want to force Christ to
leave his heavenly Kingdom and return to man here on earth. Yet in
the face of this scripture, we have millennialists telling us that God
sent his son down to the earth but the Jews wouldn’t accept him. So
according to the Millennial theorists, God took back his son and
instead of setting up his kingdom on earth, as he had planned, he
sent his church instead. How foolish that God wasn’t as smart as
Millennialists are. He didn’t know that Jews would not accept Jesus
christ. Even though God has all knowledge. Therefore, God must wait
until the apostate Jews will accept his son Jesus Christ, and at that
time he must send him back. However, this is not stated anywhere in
the Bible. Remember this is strictly a millennial theory wherein God
was not smart enough to know the correct time to send his son to save
his people.

Phil 3 17, 20.

Wherefore Brethren, be followers together of me (meaning
Christ) and mark them which walk as have us for an ensample.
(Meaning the Apostles for an example) 18: For many walk of
whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping,
that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19: Whose
end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory
is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

(Please note “Earthly Things.”)

20. For our conversation is in heaven; from whence we also
look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus christ.

Yet the Millennialists want to bring Christ out of Heaven, to
reign on this earthy earth. Which is condemned in this scripture
before your eyes.
As you have seen earlier in this film narration, Israel has made
the same mistake of disobedience to Gods wishes time after time: and
has been crushed time after time, for that disobedience. When the
neighboring nations with Gods help, have overrun her borders,
capturing her land, and at times carrying of her people. Today the
apostate Jews must accept Jesus Christ and the Christian dispensation
as their saviour. And become true christians in order to please God
the Father. For remember it was Jesus himself who said in John 14: 6.

I am the way,

Meaning the way to everlasting life.

The Truth,

Meaning the truth about everlasting life.

And the life.

Meaning the only everlasting life.

No man cometh unto the Father but by me.

There are present today self appointed interpreters, who
actually insult and degrade the Biblical prophecies of our Lord and
God. When they claim that the book of Jeremiah, Zechariah and Daniel
foretell of a group of dominant nations making a peace pact with
Israel.
From this, our false prophets claim, will come seven years in
which there will be peace for the first half but the last half of the
seven years will see that peace broken, leading to world wide
tribulation and the final war. Armageddon. These millennialists say,
in the midst of this chaos, Christ will come back to set up his
Kingdom on this earth.
Now let us examine some Scripture texts as the Lord God Almighty
will speak for himself, not the conjecturization of the Millennialists.

Luke 24: 44. And he said unto them, these are the words I
speak unto you, while I was yet with you. That all things
must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses,
and in the prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning me.

John 19: 28, After this, Jesus knowing that all things were
accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled saith, I
thirst.

Acts 13: 29, And when they had fulfilled all that was written
of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a
sepulchre,

In these last three scriptures you are shown literal, Biblical
proof, that all that was written or prophesied of Jesus by Moses and
the prophets and the Psalms was fulfilled. No instruction was given
for prophecy to be fulfilled 1900 or more years later. These
Millennialists create confusion, by putting the scripture out of
their actual chronological time frame.

>From her to end is disp3

The Lords Spiritual kingdom

Our subject at this time is the establishment of the Lords
Spiritual kingdom here upon the earth.
After the resurrection of Christ and his appearance to the
Apostles, he ascended back to heaven from whence he sent the Holy
Spirit to guide the apostles into all truth. This promise was made in
John 16: 13. With the coming of the Holy Spirit, on the first day of
Pentecost, after the resurrection of Christ, the eternal purpose of
God of providing redemption was accomplished. The prophecies have
been fulfilled. The Spiritual kingdom is now a reality, here on earth
as it is in heaven. The kingdom of God is made up of born again
sinners, Who have been translated out of the power of darkness, into
the kingdom of Gods great Son. These Called Out Ones constitute the
kingdom, or the Lords Church, here upon earth and are referred to as
the family of God. During the personal ministry of our Lord, he taught
many things concerning the kingdom. One thing very definitely in John
18th Chapter 36th verse. Jesus said

My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this
world then would my servants fight, that I should not be
delivered unto the Jews. But now my kingdom is not come
hence.

In other words Jesus was not going to establish a literal kingdom
here upon the earth, but it was to be spiritual in nature. For
spiritual life demands a spiritual kingdom. Upon one occasion, while
in conversation with his disciples, Jesus said to them,

There be some of you who stand here who will not taste death
until you have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

And our lord promised his disciples that he would send the Holy
Spirit to guide them, so the kingdom would come during the life time
of these apostles. It was a future event and it was very close at
hand at that time. The apostles standing there with Christ would see
the kingdom come with power. As the apostles all died then, we are
assured by this scripture, that the spiritual kingdom is now in
force. Could you doubt Christ’s statement here?

From the second chapter of Acts, we learn that at least 17
different nationalities were there, when these apostles stood up and
began to speak under the influence of the Holy Spirit. These men,
from the different nations spoke in their own tongues, wherein they
were born. Some said these men are drunken, They are full of new
wine. But when Peter got up and began to explain and said,

these men are not drunken as it is but the 3rd hour of the
day. But this is that which was spoken of by the prophet
Joel.

Peter in explaining, what had taken place on the day of the
Pentecost, showed the fulfillment of a number of things concerning the
coming of the kingdom. As we follow Peters sermon and he explains
why these men are not drunken as they supposed, since it was only the
third hour of the day. He goes on to further explain, this is that
was spoken by the Prophet Joel, Peter then quotes the prophecy of Joel
and affirms that this is indeed the period of time known as the last
days. This is what Isaiah meant 793 years before when he said the
kingdom would come or the Lords house would be built in the last days.
So we have the period of time, right for the coming of the kingdom.

Quoting from Heb. 1: 1,2

God who in sundry times, and diverse manners, spake in time
past unto the fathers by the prophets has, in these last
days, spoken unto us by his Son, whom he has appointed heir
of all things, by whom also he has made the world.

This is further proof that we are in the last days and according to
verse two we have been in the last days, ever since God sent his son
to speak to us. Therefore, the last days, started in the fullness of
time, when God sent his son to start Christianity upon this earth.

Second, in his sermon on that occasion, in Acts 2nd Chapter verses 29
through 33, Peter explains about Christ. Starting with the prophet
David and coming down the stream of time, he said concerning Christ,

30: Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God has
sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins,
according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on
his throne; 31: He seeing this before spake of the
resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell,
neither did his flesh see corruption. 32: This Jesus hath
God raised up, whereof we are all witnesses.

Reading further we find Peter now affirming that Jesus is seated at
the right hand of God. And so we have the fulfillment of Jeremiah the
23rd Chapter verses 5 and 6; that when the kingdom of God is
established the Lord himself would be the king.
As we follow Peter Simon concerning the will that was made
known on that occasion, first, let us give our attention to the
things that are necessary to make a will binding. In Heb. 9: 16,
17. the apostle Paul, by inspiration, explains how a will is made
binding on the executor and how it can not be binding as long as who
makes the will is still alive. He said,

16: For where a testament is, there is also of necessity be
the death of the testator. 17: For a testament, (or will) is
of force after men are dead. Otherwise, it is of no strength
at all, while the testator liveth.

And so the will of our Lord that applies to us in the Christian
dispensation, was not effective and did not apply to all people as
long as Jesus who made it was alive, here on earth. Jesus had
previously said, while in conversation with is disciples, in Matt.
16, and 19.

That whatsoever you bind upon earth I will bind in heaven,
And whatsoever you loose on the earth I will loose in heaven.

Jesus here was teaching concerning his will. And he knew at this
time, though he was with his disciples here on earth, that when his
will became effective and applied to all people, he himself would not
be here. But would be on his throne in heaven.

The Church Established

We have now passed from one age to another. From the Jewish age,
which lasted almost 1,500 years, to the Christian age. During the
Jewish age the people could not inherit land according to the promise
God made to Abraham, unless they were born into a Jewish family. The
cross in the center represents the death of Jesus Christ. He nailed
the law of Moses to the Cross and in the death of Jesus he inaugurated
the law that applies to the Christian age.
We now have the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Christian age
beginning. Likewise the Christian age had it’s beginning by an act of
God. Jesus chose his disciples while here on earth, and he taught and
trained them for about three and a half years. Not only did he teach
his 12 apostles, he taught great multitudes of disciples too. He
taught them things pertaining to the kingdom of heaven. Because the
kingdom was in a preparatory state, During the personal ministry of
Christ, Jesus instructed these apostles to return to the city of
Jerusalem to wait for that power that was to guide them in all truth.
On the day of Pentecost, God delivered his law directly to these
apostles. He had chosen and filled them with the Holy Spirit. They
in turn began to make known God’s will unto all the people. The
message God delivered to them was a law that applied to all nations
upon the earth. This marks the beginning of the Christian age.
Now having seen the establishment of the kingdom, the beginning
of the Christian age, and the application of the will of Christ to all
people, we now know the kingdom is now an existing institution. It
had it’s beginning on the first day of Pentecost, after the
resurrection of Jesus Christ, in the year A.D. 33.
Now, may I call your attention to a statement that Jesus made in
Matt. 16:18. During a conversation with his disciples he said;

I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this
rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not
prevail against it.

Jesus knew at this time he would die before his church would be
built. So we have the words of Jesus, asserting that even though he
was going to die, he would still build his church. In 1st Tim. 3rd
Chapter, 15th Verse, Paul, writing to Timothy, said

But if I tarry long, thou that mayst know how thou oughtest
to behave thyself in the house of the Lord, which is the
church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

Here we have the term The Lord’s House and the Church used
interchangeably, or explained by the Apostle Paul that they are one
and the same thing. Isaiah had said in Chapter 2, verse 3, The Lord’s
house would be established in the last days, The Lord’s House, which
the Lord’s kingdom was established or built and now an inspired
apostle tells the us the Lord’s House is the same as the church.
In Acts 2 the 47th, verse after the sermon on the day of the
Pentecost, by the Apostle Peter, in which 3,000 accepted the Truth
that Peter taught and were baptized for the remission of their sins;
the scripture concludes with these words,

Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the
lord added to the church daily, such as should be saved.

Thus, we have the church in existence from this point on. The
church and the kingdom is a reality, and is referred to throughout
the remaining New Testament’s an existing institution. In fact, the
book of Acts, is largely a record of the missionary efforts by the
apostles. And the early Church to expand the kingdom of God and
establish congregations in various places.
We call your attention now, to this chart, so we may show that
the terms kingdom, Church, Body, and even the term Christ, are used to
refer to the same arrangement. In other words, they are synonymous.
Let us examine the first one; the kingdom. We have the kingdom
prophesied, and the kingdom in existence. In Matt. the 2nd chapter v.
1 and 2, the writer tells us that Christ was born to be the King.
Thus, he would be the head of the kingdom or the King. In Col. 1: 13.
14. Paul writing to the Christians at Colossi said

13. Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and
has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14. in
whom we have redemption through his blood, even the
forgiveness of our sins.

So, as we sum up, we find the kingdom is the arrangement over
which Christ is head. In the kingdom we have redemption through his
blood, even the forgiveness of sins. This is what the Lord’s purpose
was almost 4,000 years before our time. So we move this arrangement
down to the bottom circle, and place it there fore the time being.
Then as we take a look at the next circle, The term Church which means
called out, we find in Ephesians 1:22, the record says.

And gave him (that is Christ) to be the head over all things
to the Church, 23. which is his body, The fullness of him
that filleth all in all.

So we see that Christ is the head of this arrangement. As we
already noted in Acts 2: 47, The Lord adds to the Church those that
should be saved. May I point out the Church does not save anyone, but
the Church is the saved. All those who are saved by the blood of
Christ, are added to the Lord’s Church, which is the lords family, or
the kingdom and thus we add this one to the circle also. We haven’t
gained anything we haven’t lost anything. Christ is the head of the
kingdom, as well as the head of the church. He is the head of but one
institution.

Christ and the Church

Now we consider the body as we read from Ephesians 1 verse 22,

And gave him to be head over all things to the church which
is his body.

Colossians 1st Chapter 18th verse.

And he is the head of the body, the church.

We don’t need to read farther here, because inspiration tells
that the church and the body are the same. In Eph. 5: 23, Paul says:

For the husband is the head of the wife. Even as Christ is
the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

And so we add this one. We still we haven’t gained anything but
we haven’t lost anything. Even the term Christ is the same as Paul
uses it in writing in Timothy in 2 Tim. 2 and 10,

Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sake. That they
may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with
eternal glory,

May be used in 2 different ways. Christ is usually referred to
as a person or individual. The term Christ is used and referred to
as a means to salvation. When we think of salvation being in Christ,
it then includes all the arrangements that Christ has for saving
mankind. And thus we add this one.

We place all of them in one. We may call it the church, the kingdom,
or the body of Christ, it doesn’t matter. All these terms are to be
found in the Scriptures. They all refer to exactly the same
arrangements. In this arrangement all spiritual blessings are to be
found. Including the forgiveness of sins and salvation. As we read
from the Ephesian letter Chapter 1 verse 3.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who
hath blessed us with a spiritual blessings in heavenly places
in Christ.

We see that if all Spiritual blessings are in Christ, and in this
arrangement he has for saving people, there is not one spiritual
blessing outside of Christ or outside the arrangement Christ has for
saving his people.

In Coll. 1: 13, 14. we read:

Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath
translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: in whom we
have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of
sins.

From this passage we easily understand we cannot receive the
forgiveness of our sins separate and apart from the kingdom, or the
Lords arrangement for saving us. The kingdom being the same as the
church, as a body of Christ, for Christ is our saviour. This simply
means that we can not be saved separate and apart from the arrangement
God has for saving us.

Matt. 13: 10.

Teaching Through Parables

And the disciples came, and said unto him, why speakest thou
unto them in parables?

The “them” referred to, is the apostate Jewish priests and
scribes and Pharisees.

Verse 11,

And he answered and said unto them, because it is given unto
you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to
them it is not given.

Christ turned to teaching in parables, after opposition developed
against his divine mission. This verse shows that Christ designed the
parable, at least in part, to conceal his teachings from those who
were not sincerely seeking to know and do his will. The harmless and
innocent stories, which the Great Teacher told, gave nothing at all
for the Pharisees spies to report. Mysteries of the kingdom mentioned
here, referred generally to Christ’s redemptive message which appeared
mysterious enough to those secular and materialist persons who had no
proper conception of the Messiah’s purpose. Mystery, as used in the
New Testament, referred to things concerning the kingdom of God,
hidden from all previous generations. But then, in Christ, revealed
to the Apostles and later to all mankind. In Romans 16: 25-27:
1st Corinthians, 2: 7 and 8.

Matt. 13: Verse 12.

But whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have
more abundance but whosoever hath not, from him shall be
taken away him even what he hath.

This means: that those who hath perceptive and willing, hearts
and truly desired to know Gods will, could by proper application, know
more of the kingdom of heaven and thus be richly rewarded. But those
who did not have such character, would consider the parables as mere
riddles, and lose their chance to know the Lord.

Verse 13,

Therefore speak I to them in parables: because seeing they
see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they
understand.

How wonderfully were the parables designed to accomplish Christ’s
purpose. They were marvelous devices for the separation of his
hearers and polarizing them with reference to the approaching kingdom.
Those who desired and expected some worldly conqueror, who would break
the back of Roman tyranny and restore secular power to the Jews, were
repelled by the innocent and innocuous descriptions of such prosaic
and common place things which formed the basis of the parables. On
the other hand, spiritually minded disciples, would read the deeper
meaning and know the mysteries of the kingdom of God.

We pray you too will open your hearts and minds to Christ’s
teachings about the kingdom of God.

The Parable of the Tares, verses 24 through 30.

Another parable set he before them, saying, The kimgdom of
heaven is liken to a man that sowed good seed in his field:
25. But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares with
the wheat and went his way. 26. But when the blade was
sprung up, and brought fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27. So the servants of the householder came and said unto
him, Sir, dids’t thou not sew good seed in thy field? from
whence then hath it tares? 28. And he said unto them, An
enemy hath done this. The servants say unto him. Wilt thou
then that we go and gather them up? 29. but he saith, Nay,
lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up the wheat with
them. 30. Let both grow together until the harvest, and in
the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, gather up,
first the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them: But
gather the wheat into my barn.

Christ fully explained this parable in Matt. Chapter 13 verse 36 to
40.

36. Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the
house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto
us the parable of the tares of the field, 37. He answered
and said unto them. He that soweth the good seed is the Son
of man; 38. The field is the world, the good seed are the
children of the kingdom, but the tares are the children of
the wicked one; 39. The enemy that sowed them is the devil;
The harvest is the end of the world; the reapers are the
angels. 40. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned
in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

The following analysis are explicitly set forth in this parable.
Gathering into his barn is the salvation of the righteous. He that
sowed the good seed is the Christ. He that sowed the evil is the
devil. The good are Christians, the bad seed are the children of the
devil. The field is the world. The harvest is the end of the world.
The burning of the tares represents hell, the reapers are the angels
in the end of the world. While men slept; means that Satan must abide
his opportunity, and may not fully countermand the truth except with
Gods permission, and man’s inattention. Gathering out of his kingdom,
suggests purging of the church in the last days; in the judgment.
Please note that Christ did not say to save the tares for the
Millennial reign of one thousand years, wherein the tares would be
given a second chance to be converted into wheat. No; Christ said to
gather up the tares and burn them up. That is in hell. There is not
a millennium after the second coming of Christ.

The parable of the net that was cast into the sea, verses 47 to
49.

47. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that
was cast into the sea,. and gathered of every kind. 48.
Which when it was full, they drew up on the beach, and they
sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but the bad they
cast away. 49. So shall it be in the end of the world: the
angels shall come forth and sever, the wicked from among the
righteous, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire:
There shall be the weeping and gnashing of teeth.

This is another of the parables Jesus explained. And again, not
one analogy but many are noted. The sea is the world. The net is the
church. The enclosed fishes of every kind are the members of the
church. The good fishes are the truly spiritual children of their
father, and the bad fishes are like the tares; sons of the Evil One.
The fact that both kinds are in the net shows the proximity of the
good and bad in the kingdom . Where all are counted by men to be in
it. But some of whom are wicked. The beach represents the end of
time. The nets being filled shows that God will obtain his full
purpose in the redemption of men. The sorting of the fishes, represent
the judgment of the last day. The sorters are the angels. The
casting of the bad away is the casting of the wicked into hell. The
gathering into vessels represents the salvation of the Godly. The
vessel represents heaven.
The parable of the net is the Christ’s pledge that what ever
doubts and perplexities may arise; from this mixture of the good and
bad in the church, there will at last occur the thorough and dramatic
separation of the one from the other. And that it will be accomplished
by beings most eminently qualified to do it. Namely by the angels of
God. Furthermore, not all so called Christians will be saved. A
great many are in the net, the church who must be accounted as bad,
and who shall suffer eternal banishment from the face of the Father.
Please note again; that no command was given to save the bad
fish in a millennial one thousand year reign. No, the bad fish were
not given a second chance, but were thrown away at that time; at the
second coming of Christ.

Matt. 1 through 13. The parables of the ten virgins.

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins,
which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the
bridegroom. 5. And five of them were wise, and five were
foolish. 3. They that were foolish, took their lamps and
took no oil with them, 4, But the wise took oil in their
vessels with their lamps. 5. While the bridegroom tarried,
they all slumbered and slept. 6. And at midnight there was a
cry made. Behold, the bridegroom, cometh; go ye out and meet
him. 7. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their
lamps. 8. And the foolish said unto the wise, give us of
your oil; for our lamps are going out. 9. But the wise
answered, saying. per adventure there will not be enough for
us, and you go ye rather to those who sell and buy for
yourselves. 10. And while they went away to buy, the
bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to
the marriage. and the door was shut. 11. Afterwards came
also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open up to us,
12. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I
know you not. 13. Watch therefore for ye know not the day or
the hour.

This is plainly a parable of the second coming and the judgment,
emphasizing of that theme in chapter 24. The analogies in the
parable are the kingdom of heaven, it’s the church, the bridegroom
is Christ. The midnight arrival is the advent, The virgins are church
members. The wise virgins are the prepared, the foolish virgins are
the unprepared. The lamps are faith and works, the oil are works and
the spirit. The sleep of the virgins is the sleep of death. Tarrying
of the bridegroom is the delay of the second coming. The midnight cry
is the call to judgment, Refusal to give oil is that merit is not
transferable. Exclusion of the foolish is the rejection of
unprepared. The shut door is the impossibly of last minute
preparations.

This parable pertains to members of the body of Christ, That is
the true church of Christ. The parable is practical, the tragic
story of the ready and the unready. It applies to all present day
Christians. The kingdom of heaven is the Church, aptly set forth in
the analogy as a company of precious bridesmaids. The great shock
therefore, is to realize that some even of these, shall summarily be
excluded from association with the bridegroom. The parable is
designed to shock men, into realizing that a host of good clean moral
respectable members of the church will be lost. Through shear
negligence, many of the redeemed, shall fail to enter in. The foolish
virgins, are the Lords own example, of saved persons, who have failed
to make the port of everlasting life. This warns against idleness and
neglect, but it should not discourage. Those foolish virgins did not
provide oil, but they could have done so. What was required of them
was nothing extraordinary or especially difficult, but it did require
concern and attention, which they failed to give. And the door was
shut.
This is a warning to the good, the morally upright, the
respectable and the cultured church member. A warning thundered from
the gates of heaven. There must be oil in your lamp.

Be not deceived by the clichés of Satan to the effect that works can
not save. Preparation can save, and works are invariably involved in
preparation. One shudders to think of some who may be trusting to be
saved, with faith alone, as outlined in many of the current creeds.
Or expecting to store up merit in some ancient saint, to save them.
Equally futile are the host of those who may rely upon the goodness of
their parents, the merits of their families, or the works of their
religious groups to save them.
Is there enough oil in your lamp? Arouse you sleepers and
provide oil for your lamps, before life’s little day is spent. Oil
you must have, not merely enough to light. But enough to burn and
last. An Apostle said, work out your own salvation with fear and
trembling. Philippians 2: 12. The unwise virgins simple did not do
it, and millions today are in the same condition. They are members of
the company called to meet the bridegroom, they even have lamps and a
little oil, but not enough. Not enough, what awful words were
those.
This parable is a trumpet call and war cry for men to bestir
themselves. Go and buy for yourselves. This is the only proper advice,
but do it now. The foolish virgins waited, till the sun declined and
the twilight came, and darkness fell, till their eyes were closed in
the sleep of death. In that retched state of unprepardness, the
midnight cry overtook them, then it was too late. May it not be too
late for us.

Watch therefore for ye know not the day nor hour.

This was Jesus’ own conclusion from the parable. It should also be
ours. The meaning of watch is not restricted to staying awake, but
included thoroughness of preparation. An alertness that takes account
of unseen contingencies, and a conscious readiness at all times, to
respond to the divine summons. The wise virgins slept with the
foolish ones, as indeed all shall sleep in death. Thus, to watch,
enjoins the proper employment of all those golden hours, that precede
the inevitable onset that night when no man can work.
It is clear, that if there was to be a Millennial reign after the
second coming of Christ, it would have to be in the parables or at
least somewhere in the New Testament. However this is not the case.
Therefore the millennium is false.

Matt. 4 27 through 30. Particularly verse 28. Christ said,

But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God then the
kingdom of God has come upon you.

All Christians, who have studied their Bible, know Christ did cast out
demons, and it was done by the spirit of God. For Christ said, he
did nothing but what his father told him to do, therefore, the
kingdom of God is upon you, and is not something in the distant
future, as the millennialists teach.

Rev. 3: 12. tells us,

Him that overcometh will I make I make a pillar in the
Temple of my God. and he shall go no more out: And I will
write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city
of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of
heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

The statement in the latter part of verse 12, referring to the
new Jerusalem, with a new name, simply means that the old Jerusalem
and for all which it stood would be gone. As stated in chapter 21 of
the Apocalypse the old things would pass away.

And behold I will make all things new.

This new temple would not be the restoration of the old house nor
the reconstitution of it’s ordinances. The emblem of the new Church
is used to distinguish a new institution, the church from Judaism
completely. It would not be a new dispensation of old ordinances,
the old things are passed away, behold, all things are new.
The promise to the members of the church, was that in the
spiritual temple of the new Jerusalem, in contrast with the old
temple of the apostate Jerusalem, the Lord established them as
permanent elements of the redeemed society of his church, which
nothing could destroy. These principles prevail in the church today,
and should ever be a source of strength and encouragement to all of
its members. Yet, there are many ministers, who in the millennial
theory, are preaching the restoration of the old temple and its
rights, instead of the teachings of truths of Jesus Christ. Matt. 8:
verses 7 and 8.

7, And he saith unto him I will come and heal him. 8. And
the centurion answered and said unto him, Lord I am not
worthy that thou shouldst come under my roof: but only say
the word and my servant will be healed.

When word was relayed again to the Centurion Jesus would come
and heal his servant. He took quick appraisal of the situation and
in a marvelous demonstration of true humility confessed his own
unworthiness that the Holy one should come into his house. Even
today, there are those who suppose that Christ could do more on earth,
if he were personally present in some millennial reign. But the
Centurion properly understood that the physical presence of the Lord
was not necessary for the accomplishment of his wise designs. We now
quote John 6: verses 14 and 15.

Then those men, who had seen the miracle that Jesus did,
said, This is of a truth that prophets that should come into
the world, 15. When Jesus therefore perceived that they
would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he
departed again into a mountain himself alone.

The multitude recognized Christ as the Messiah, and tried to make
Christ an earthly king by force, However, Christ knew he was not to be
anything but a spiritual leader, and not of this world, and withdrew
from the crowd. Yet the millennialists want to force Christ to be an
earthly ruler, in a millennium for one thousand years. That is to
force their plan upon the scriptures, whereas the scriptures do not
teach of Christ as an earthly ruler in a millennial kingdom.

Matt. 24: 35,36.

Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words shall not pass
away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not
the angles of heaven, but my Father only.

Lets clear up another misconception often associated with
millennialists. They continually say we know the end of the world is
near at hand, due to the fact that things are getting so bad.
According to their theory, Christ will have to come to clean things
up. However, turing to Matt. 24: verse v 35. We find Christ answering
two questions put to him by the disciples, The first question he
answered was about the destruction of the temple, From verse 35 on,
Christ tells about the end of the world, and please note on the
slide, Christ plainly said that no man nor the angels of heaven knows
when the end will come. But only the Father. Therefore it is
ridiculous to believe anyone prophesying the end of the world. The
only thing we know that each day the end is one day closer. There is
no doubt, the main reason, why many millennialists people will not
become involved in straightening out world conditions is due to the
fact they think, that if they allow conditions to worsen, Christ will
have to return soon to clean things up. This is, you see, contrary to
the Word of God. The scripture you are viewing now. In Matt; 23,
verses 13 through 15, we read,

But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye
shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go
in yourself, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go
in. 14. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! ye
devour widows’ houses and for a pretense make long prayer:
therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. 15. Woe
unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass
sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye
make him two fold more the child of hell than yourselves.

In verse 13 the apostate Pharisee Jews were not allowing the
people to hear the truth of God, that Jesus Christ was the son of God
and the true Messiah. Thereby, the truth of the kingdom of heaven was
kept from them. They searched the scriptures for themselves. So in
verse 15, Christ is telling the apostate Pharisees, their fate in
hell, for teaching error. Please remember, that earlier in this
narration, that the Pharisees of old, have come on down to us to this
moment, so have their teachings infiltrated today. So often, one can
see the so called Jew today, but do not recognize the Jews religion.
The millennium is not Christian teaching found in Gods word, the
Bible. In Matt: 16, 19 we read

And I will give unto thee the keys to the kingdom of heaven:
and whatsoever thou shall bind on earth shall be bound in
heaven: and whatsoever thou shall loose on earth shall be
loosed in heaven.

Here Jesus Christ is telling Peter and the rest of the
Apostles, that they would have the keys to the kingdom in their hands
here on earth. Remember, the apostles were the ambassadors of
Christ on earth, after his death. He left them here to write the New
Testament as revealed to them by the Holy spirit. And to teach his
word to others well enough to make them teachers of his word. At this
time, after Pentecost, after Christ had gone go his father in heaven,
the apostles had complete remembrance of what Christ had taught them.
Therefore, the keys to the kingdom that Christ gave Peter and the rest
of the apostles, was the New Testament. That kingdom, as you will
note, is in existence today. At this moment. As it has been ever
since Christ gave the keys to the apostles. If there was no kingdom
immediately at hand, then Christ’s gift of the keys would be
meaningless and useless to the Apostles. In verse 11 Jesus added,

I am no more in the world, but these (referring to the
apostles) are in the world and I come to thee.

Now do you think Jesus would lie? He said I am no longer in the
world. Now with this fact do you think he is coming back to this
world? NO! In Mark 9: 1, we read.

And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be
some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death,
till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

The Parable of the Tares, verses 24 through 30.

Another parable set he before them, saying, The kimgdom of
heaven is liken to a man that sowed good seed in his field:
25. But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares with
the wheat and went his way. 26. But when the blade was
sprung up, and brought fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27. So the servants of the householder came and said unto
him, Sir, dids’t thou not sew good seed in thy field? from
whence then hath it tares? 28. And he said unto them, An
enemy hath done this. The servants say unto him. Wilt thou
then that we go and gather them up? 29. but he saith, Nay,
lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up the wheat with
them. 30. Let both grow together until the harvest, and in
the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, gather up,
first the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them: But
gather the wheat into my barn.

Christ fully explained this parable in Matt. Chapter 13 verse 36 to
40.

36. Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the
house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto
us the parable of the tares of the field, 37. He answered
and said unto them. He that soweth the good seed is the Son
of man; 38. The field is the world, the good seed are the
children of the kingdom, but the tares are the children of
the wicked one; 39. The enemy that sowed them is the devil;
The harvest is the end of the world; the reapers are the
angels. 40. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned
in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

The following analysis are explicitly set forth in this parable.
Gathering into his barn is the salvation of the righteous. He that
sewed the good seed is the Christ. He that sewed the evil is the
devil. The good are Christians, the bad seed are the children of the
devil. The field is the world. The harvest is the end of the world.
The burning of the tares represents hell, the reapers are the angels
in the end of the world. While men slept; means that Satan must abide
his opportunity, and may not fully countermand the truth except with
Gods permission, and man’s inattention. Gathering out of his kingdom,
suggests purging of the church in the last days; in the judgment.
Please note that Christ did not say to save the tares for the
Millennial reign of one thousand years, wherein the tares would be
given a second chance to be converted into wheat. No; Christ said to
gather up the tares and burn them up. That is in hell. There is not
a millennium after the second coming of Christ.

The parable of the net that was cast into the sea, verses 47 to
49.

47. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that
was cast into the sea,. and gathered of every kind. 48.
Which when it was full, they drew up on the beach, and they
sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but the bad they
cast away. 49. So shall it be in the end of the world: the
angels shall come forth and sever, the wicked from among the
righteous, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire:
There shall be the weeping and gnashing of teeth.

This is another of the parables Jesus explained. And again, not
one analogy but many are noted. The sea is the world. The net is the
church. The enclosed fishes of every kind are the members of the
church. The good fishes are the truly spiritual children of their
father, and the bad fishes are like the tares; sons of the Evil One.
The fact that both kinds are in the net shows the proximity of the
good and bad in the kingdom . Where all are counted by men to be in
it. But some of whom are wicked. The beach represents the end of
time. The nets being filled shows that God will obtain his full
purpose in the redemption of men. The sorting of the fishes, represent
the judgment of the last day. The sorters are the angels. The
casting of the bad away is the casting of the wicked into hell. The
gathering into vessels represents the salvation of the Godly. The
vessel represents heaven.
The parable of the net is the Christ’s pledge that what ever
doubts and perplexities may arise; from this mixture of the good and
bad in the church, there will at last occur the thorough and dramatic
separation of the one from the other. And that it will be accomplished
by beings most eminently qualified to do it. Namely by the angels of
God. Furthermore, not all so called Christians will be saved. A
great many are in the net, the church who must be accounted as bad,
and who shall suffer eternal banishment from the face of the Father.
Please note again; that no command was given to save the bad
fish in a millennial one thousand year reign. No, the bad fish were
not given a second chance, but were thrown away at that time; at the
second coming of Christ.

Matt. 1 through 13. The parables of the ten virgins.

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins,
which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the
bridegroom. 5. And five of them were wise, and five were
foolish. 3. They that were foolish, took their lamps and
took no oil with them, 4, But the wise took oil in their
vessels with their lamps. 5. While the bridegroom tarried,
they all slumbered and slept. 6. And at midnight there was a
cry made. Behold, the bridegroom, cometh; go ye out and meet
him. 7. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their
lamps. 8. And the foolish said unto the wise, give us of
your oil; for our lamps are going out. 9. But the wise
answered, saying. per adventure there will not be enough for
us, and you go ye rather to those who sell and buy for
yourselves. 10. And while they went away to buy, the
bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to
the marriage. and the door was shut. 11. Afterwards came
also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open up to us,
12. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I
know you not. 13. Watch therefore for ye know not the day or
the hour.

This is plainly a parable of the second coming and the judgment,
emphasizing of that theme in chapter 24. The analogies in the
parable are the kingdom of heaven, it’s the church, the bridegroom
is Christ. The midnight arrival is the advent, The virgins are church
members. The wise virgins are the prepared, the foolish virgins are
the unprepared. The lamps are faith and works, the oil are works and
the spirit. The sleep of the virgins is the sleep of death. Tarrying
of the bridegroom is the delay of the second coming. The midnight cry
is the call to judgment, Refusal to give oil is that merit is not
transferable. Exclusion of the foolish is the rejection of
unprepared. The shut door is the impossibly of last minute
preparations.

This parable pertains to members of the body of Christ, That is
the true church of Christ. The parable is practical, the tragic
story of the ready and the unready. It applies to all present day
Christians. The kingdom of heaven is the Church, aptly set forth in
the analogy as a company of precious bridesmaids. The great shock
therefore, is to realize that some even of these, shall summarily be
excluded from association with the bridegroom. The parable is
designed to shock men, into realizing that a host of good clean moral
respectable members of the church will be lost. Through shear
negligence, many of the redeemed, shall fail to enter in. The foolish
virgins, are the Lords own example, of saved persons, who have failed
to make the port of everlasting life. This warns against idleness and
neglect, but it should not discourage. Those foolish virgins did not
provide oil, but they could have done so. What was required of them
was nothing extraordinary or especially difficult, but it did require
concern and attention, which they failed to give. And the door was
shut.
This is a warning to the good, the morally upright, the
respectable and the cultured church member. A warning thundered from
the gates of heaven. There must be oil in your lamp.

Be not deceived by the clichés of Satan to the effect that works can
not save. Preparation can save, and works are invariably involved in
preparation. One shudders to think of some who may be trusting to be
saved, with faith alone, as outlined in many of the current creeds.
Or expecting to store up merit in some ancient saint, to save them.
Equally futile are the host of those who may rely upon the goodness of
their parents, the merits of their families, or the works of their
religious groups to save them.
Is there enough oil in your lamp? Arouse you sleepers and
provide oil for your lamps, before life’s little day is spent. Oil
you must have, not merely enough to light. But enough to burn and
last. An Apostle said, work out your own salvation with fear and
trembling. Philippians 2: 12. The unwise virgins simple did not do
it, and millions today are in the same condition. They are members of
the company called to meet the bridegroom, they even have lamps and a
little oil, but not enough. Not enough, what awful words were
those.
This parable is a trumpet call and war cry for men to bestir
themselves. Go and buy for yourselves. This is the only proper advice,
but do it now. The foolish virgins waited, till the sun declined and
the twilight came, and darkness fell, till their eyes were closed in
the sleep of death. In that retched state of unprepardness, the
midnight cry overtook them, then it was too late. May it not be too
late for us.

Watch therefore for ye know not the day nor hour.

This was Jesus’ own conclusion from the parable. It should also be
ours. The meaning of watch is not restricted to staying awake, but
included thoroughness of preparation. An alertness that takes account
of unseen contingencies, and a conscious readiness at all times, to
respond to the divine summons. The wise virgins slept with the
foolish ones, as indeed all shall sleep in death. Thus, to watch,
enjoins the proper employment of all those golden hours, that precede
the inevitable onset that night when no man can work.
It is clear, that if there was to be a Millennial reign after the
second coming of Christ, it would have to be in the parables or at
least somewhere in the New Testament. However this is not the case.
Therefore the millennium is false.

Matt. 4 27 through 30. Particularly verse 28. Christ said,

But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God then the
kingdom of God has come upon you.

All Christians, who have studied their Bible, know Christ did cast out
demons, and it was done by the spirit of God. For Christ said, he
did nothing but what his father told him to do, therefore, the
kingdom of God is upon you, and is not something in the distant
future, as the millennialists teach.

Rev. 3: 12. tells us,

Him that overcometh will I make I make a pillar in the
Temple of my God. and he shall go no more out: And I will
write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city
of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of
heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

The statement in the latter part of verse 12, referring to the
new Jerusalem, with a new name, simply means that the old Jerusalem
and for all which it stood would be gone. As stated in chapter 21 of
the Apocalypse the old things would pass away.

And behold I will make all things new.

This new temple would not be the restoration of the old house nor
the reconstitution of it’s ordinances. The emblem of the new Church
is used to distinguish a new institution, the church from Judaism
completely. It would not be a new dispensation of old ordinances,
the old things are passed away, behold, all things are new.
The promise to the members of the church, was that in the
spiritual temple of the new Jerusalem, in contrast with the old
temple of the apostate Jerusalem, the Lord established them as
permanent elements of the redeemed society of his church, which
nothing could destroy. These principles prevail in the church today,
and should ever be a source of strength and encouragement to all of
its members. Yet, there are many ministers, who in the millennial
theory, are preaching the restoration of the old temple and its
rights, instead of the teachings of truths of Jesus Christ. Matt. 8:
verses 7 and 8.

7, And he saith unto him I will come and heal him. 8. And
the centurion answered and said unto him, Lord I am not
worthy that thou shouldst come under my roof: but only say
the word and my servant will be healed.

When word was relayed again to the Centurion Jesus would come
and heal his servant. He took quick appraisal of the situation and
in a marvelous demonstration of true humility confessed his own
unworthiness that the Holy one should come into his house. Even
today, there are those who suppose that Christ could do more on earth,
if he were personally present in some millennial reign. But the
Centurion properly understood that the physical presence of the Lord
was not necessary for the accomplishment of his wise designs. We now
quote John 6: verses 14 and 15.

Then those men, who had seen the miracle that Jesus did,
said, This is of a truth that prophets that should come into
the world, 15. When Jesus therefore perceived that they
would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he
departed again into a mountain himself alone.

The multitude recognized Christ as the Messiah, and tried to make
Christ an earthly king by force, However, Christ knew he was not to be
anything but a spiritual leader, and not of this world, and withdrew
from the crowd. Yet the millennialists want to force Christ to be an
earthly ruler, in a millennium for one thousand years. That is to
force their plan upon the scriptures, whereas the scriptures do not
teach of Christ as an earthly ruler in a millennial kingdom.

Matt. 24: 35,36.

Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words shall not pass
away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not
the angles of heaven, but my Father only.

Lets clear up another misconception often associated with
millennialists. They continually say we know the end of the world is
near at hand, due to the fact that things are getting so bad.
According to their theory, Christ will have to come to clean things
up. However, turing to Matt. 24: verse v 35. We find Christ answering
two questions put to him by the disciples, The first question he
answered was about the destruction of the temple, From verse 35 on,
Christ tells about the end of the world, and please note on the
slide, Christ plainly said that no man nor the angels of heaven knows
when the end will come. But only the Father. Therefore it is
ridiculous to believe anyone prophesying the end of the world. The
only thing we know that each day the end is one day closer. There is
no doubt, the main reason, why many millennialists people will not
become involved in straightening out world conditions is due to the
fact they think, that if they allow conditions to worsen, Christ will
have to return soon to clean things up. This is, you see, contrary to
the Word of God. The scripture you are viewing now. In Matt; 23,
verses 13 through 15, we read,

But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye
shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go
in yourself, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go
in. 14. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! ye
devour widows’ houses and for a pretense make long prayer:
therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. 15. Woe
unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass
sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye
make him two fold more the child of hell than yourselves.

In verse 13 the apostate Pharisee Jews were not allowing the
people to hear the truth of God, that Jesus Christ was the son of God
and the true Messiah. Thereby, the truth of the kingdom of heaven was
kept from them. They searched the scriptures for themselves. So in
verse 15, Christ is telling the apostate Pharisees, their fate in
hell, for teaching error. Please remember, that earlier in this
narration, that the Pharisees of old, have come on down to us to this
moment, so have their teachings infiltrated today. So often, one can
see the so called Jew today, but do not recognize the Jews religion.
The millennium is not Christian teaching found in Gods word, the
Bible. In Matt: 16, 19 we read

And I will give unto thee the keys to the kingdom of heaven:
and whatsoever thou shall bind on earth shall be bound in
heaven: and whatsoever thou shall loose on earth shall be
loosed in heaven.

Here Jesus Christ is telling Peter and the rest of the
Apostles, that they would have the keys to the kingdom in their hands
here on earth. Remember, the apostles were the ambassadors of
Christ on earth, after his death. He left them here to write the New
Testament as revealed to them by the Holy spirit. And to teach his
word to others well enough to make them teachers of his word. At this
time, after Pentecost, after Christ had gone go his father in heaven,
the apostles had complete remembrance of what Christ had taught them.
Therefore, the keys to the kingdom that Christ gave Peter and the rest
of the apostles, was the New Testament. That kingdom, as you will
note, is in existence today. At this moment. As it has been ever
since Christ gave the keys to the apostles. If there was no kingdom
immediately at hand, then Christ’s gift of the keys would be
meaningless and useless to the Apostles. In verse 11 Jesus added,

I am no more in the world, but these (referring to the
apostles) are in the world and I come to thee.

Now do you think Jesus would lie? He said I am no longer in the
world. Now with this fact do you think he is coming back to this
world? NO! In Mark 9: 1, we read.

And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be
some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death,
till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

When Jesus Christ left this world, no more to return to it or
dwell upon it, the work the father had sent him to do in it was
finished. His kingdom was ready to be established. And in Mark 9:
1. Jesus assured his disciples standing there, that they would
witness it. His words “I am no more in the world but these are in the
world”, means that the world of his kingdom in the world would be
executed by his ambassadors, the apostles, with full port folio as
ministers of state, in his kingdom. Their ambassadorial office, with
all of it’s inspired prerogatives, began on Pentecost of Acts 2. and
this was the culmination of all his sayings. It meant the ending of
the law, and the beginning of the Gospel. So it was true, that within
the life span of some of those standing there with Christ, would see
the kingdom come before they died. That was some 1900 years ago.
Therefore the kingdom has come, it’s here now. You might think that
the kingdom is not here now, because you haven’t seen it. But read
with me what Jesus said. In Luke 17: 20,21.

And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom
of God should cometh, he answered them and said, The kingdom
of God cometh not with observation. Neither shall they say
Lo here, or lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is
within you.

So you see it is true the kingdom is spiritual. You may wonder
how you get it within you. Of course, many millennialists as well as
others, say you don’t have to be baptized to be saved. However if you
are scripturally baptized as set forth in Acts 2: 38, for the
remission of your sins, then we are further told in Galatians 3: 26,

for as many of you have been baptized into Christ have put
on Christ.

You see there is more to be accepted by Christ than just
believing. You must be baptized. And when you have put on Christ,
Christ is within you and you are within the kingdom. It is just that
simple. In Coll. chapter 3: 1,2. we read,

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things that are
above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set
your affection on things above not on things on the earth.

Here the new Testament explains that Christ is on his spiritual
throne now, thus negating an earthly kingdom. 1 st. John 2: 15, says.

Love not the world, nor the things in the world. if any man
loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

Need I remind you that the Millennium is of this world? In 1st John 5:
19 we read

And we know we are of God, and the whole world lieth in
wickedness.

It would seem that every Christian would rather go to heaven to
be with God and his son, than to remain hereon this wicked earth. But
then again the millennialists, are against the teaching of the Bible
want to drag Christ off his Heavenly throne, and bring him back to
this wicked world, for a thousand years.

The hypocrites in this verse from Matt. 15: 7, 9 refers to the
apostate Pharisees Jewish chief priests described in verse 7.

Ye hypocrites, well did Esais prophesy of you saying, 8. this
people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoreth me
with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in
vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the
commandments of men.

The same thing is going on in our day, as in Christ’s day, where
we have men going on beyond the scripture such as the millennialists
teaching their millennial doctrines. The precepts of men.

Chapter 7

Cyrus Ingerson Scofield

If you think Dr. Scofield was a brilliant man, I challenge you
to find a book pertaining to his life. No information could be found
through any library association or any church library association.
The book entitled The Life of Scofield, was on record in the Library
of Congress which was photocopied in its entirety. It seems strange,
that those who know about Scofield’s true background, have kept his
book out of circulation. However, not strange, when you have read the
book. The picture of Dr. Scofield sitting in his Library at Princeton
University, would leave the illusion that Scofield graduated from
Princeton in theology, however this is absolutely not the case.
This is the fly sheet of an ordinary Scofield Bible. In most
cases, the Scofield Bible, is the King James Bible, with Scofield
notes at the bottom of the page. Unfortunately, most people believe
that Scofield was a theological giant, and in place of reading the
Bible, read his notes at the bottom of the page. Only when those with
an open mind, an honest theological background, read what Dr.
Scofield says, on some pages, it is noted he is in conflict with the
Holy Scriptures.

>From Rev. 22: 18, 19. we quote,

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the
prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these
things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written
in this book. 19. And if any man shall take away from the
words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away
his part out of the book of life and out of the holy city,
and from the things which are written in this book.

These words should ring loudly in the hearts and minds of people
who cherish the Scofield bible, where the pages are filled with the
precepts of men, out of context of the Bible. and in many places in
absolute conflict with the Bible.
This photograph is a good example where Scofield notes take a
large part of the Bible page, and in this particular page, are in
absolute conflict with the Holy Scripture. On this page, from the
“Life of Scofield”, a Jewish friend of Scofield is quoted as saying,
“You are a better Jew than I”. As you know, from former information
in this picture narration, you are shown from he Jewish Encyclopedia,
that the Millennial idea was started by the Jews long before the
Christian era, and the long before the days of Christ on this earth.
In other words, the Jew was saying to Scofield, who was teaching the
Pharisaic millennial theory in effect; “Scofield, you are a better
Pharisee than I.” From Titus 1: 13-15.

This witness is true, wherefore rebuke them sharply that they
may be sound in the faith, not given heed to Jewish fables
and commandments of men that turn from the truth. Unto the
pure all things are pure, but unto them that are defiled and
unbelieving, nothing is pure. but even their mind and
conscience is defiled.

This New Testament scripture has sounded down through the ages as
a warning as not only against the precepts of men, such as Scofield,
but against all Jewish fables that have infiltrated the teachings of
Jesus Christ. In Philippians 3: 17 through 20 we read,

Brethren be followers together of me, and mark them that
walk, so ye have us for an ensample. For many walk of whom
I have told you often and now tell you even weeping, that
they are enemies of the Cross of Christ. To them is
destruction who’s god is their belly; who’s glory is in their
shame, who mind earthly things. For our conversation is in
heaven from whence also we look for the savior. The Lord
Jesus Christ.

In any other words anything more than the Bible is too much.
Anything less than the Bible is too little. Anything the same as the
Bible is the Bible. Therefore be safe and stick to the Bible only.
Not to the Scofield or anyone else. Beware of the precepts of men.
You must believe Scofield and his precepts of men, that is his
imagination or his interpretation of the Bible. Or believe the Bible
for yourself. Christ didn’t need Scofield to interpret the Bible or
he would have mentioned Scofield or his cohorts in the pages of the
New Testament. Christ plainly said. Beware of the precepts of men.
>From 1st Cor.4: 6 we read;

Now these things brethren I have in a figure transferred to
myself and Apollos for your sakes; that in us ye might learn
not to go beyond the things that are written.

In other words don’t think so much of any person that you would
allow yourself taken in and allow yourself to go beyond scriptures
that are written. In any belief, other than Jesus Christ. Rev. 22: 14.

Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have
right to the tree of life and may enter in through the gate
into the city.

It is only those who obey the commandments of Christ and reject
the precepts of men, as these scriptures have shown, that will enter
the gates of heaven and will enjoy eternal life with Christ and God.
Again let me remind you, the millennial theory is not contained
within the pages of the Bible. In 2 Cor. 4: 18 we read

While we look not at the things that are seen, but at things
that are not seen; for the things which are seen, are
temporal, but things which are not seen are eternal.

I hope you see in this scripture that everything that is seen is
earthly and temporary. For as spiritual things, as set forth in the
Bible, more especially the New Testament, are not seen but are
spiritual and forever. Which is the way of life for Christians. 1 John
2: 15, 17.

Love not the world, either the things that are in the world.
If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in
him. 16. For all that is in the world, the lust of the
flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not
of the father but is of the world. 17. And the world passeth
away and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of God
abideth forever. This is so obvious, no comment. From Matt.
6: 19, 20 we read:

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moss
and rust doeth corrupt, and where thieves break through and
steal, 20. but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moss and rust doeth corrupt and where thieves
do not break through nor steal. This is now so plain I hope
it needs no explanation. 1st Thess. 4: 16, 18.

For the lord himself shall descend with a shout with the
voice of the Arch angel and with the trump of God. And the
dead in Christ shall rise first. 17. Then we which are alive
and remain shall be caught up together with them in the
clouds. To meet the Lord in the air. And so shall we ever be
with the Lord. 18. Wherefore comfort one another with these
words.

No where in the Bible are we told that Jesus Christ will ever set
foot on earth at his second coming. You can see in this scripture that
we will meet him in the air and so shall we ever be with Christ. A
reign of Christ on this earth after his second coming is taught no
where in the Holy Bible. From 2 Cor. 4:

In whom the God of this world hath blinded the minds of them
which believe not, lest the light of the glorious Gospel of
Christ who is the image of God should shine upon them.

Do not let the Millennial theory of this world blind you. nor
your mind from the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ. If the
Millennial reign was true the New Testament the Christian handbook
would be full of it. Then why is the Bible so quiet about the 1000
year reign? Because it is false teaching. By the god of this world.
Satan.

In Rev. 20: 1 through 6 we read,

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key to
the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand. 2. And he
laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the
Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years. 3. And
cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a
seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more,
till the thousand years should be fulfilled, and after that
he should be loosed a little season. 4. 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 on their foreheads, or in their hands; and
they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5. But
the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years
were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6. Blessed
and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection: on
such the second death has no power, and they shall be priests
of God and of Christ and shall reign with him a thousand
years.

It is a common expression, we hear it on every hand, the Bible
plainly says Christ will reign on the earth a thousand years, That is
something the Bible nowhere says vaguely or plainly. Like the battle
of Armageddon notion. The millennial notion is not in the Bible. The
Bible has something to say about a thousand years but nothing about
a thousand year reign on earth. Christ reigns but the reign of Rev. 20
is not the reign of Christ, it was rather a peculiar and special
reign of certain souls with Christ. It does not refer or mention the
reign of Christ the ones mentioned were reigning. It was a special use
of the word applied to a special incident of the Revelation vision.
The text says they lived and reigned. Where did they live and reign?
They lived and reigned with Christ. John saw souls out of the body,
not in the body. It was a vision of the souls of the martyrs living
and reigning with Christ in a particular and a peculiar sense.
In a conversation with any group of denominational preachers one
will invariably be heard to say “the Bible plainly says that we shall
reign with Christ on earth a thousand years. When it is asked for the
passage that plainly says it, he will just as invariably and
confidently refer his listeners to Revelation 20 verse 4. it is in
order in time and place now to dissect this misunderstood and
misapplied passage of Scripture. This is the way it reads

And I saw a throne and they sat upon them and judgment was
given unto them. And I saw the souls of them 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.

The scripture passage is almost universally believed to actually say
we shall live and reign with Christ on earth a thousand years. The
text says. They lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

The pronoun “we” is a personal pronoun, a first person, but they,
is a personal pronoun of the third person. The verbs lived and
reigned are verbs of past tense, but shall live and reign are verbs of
future tense. No man can claim the right to change the sentence of
this text from the third personal pronoun “they” to the first personal
pronoun “we”. Nor to change the verbs “lived and reigned”, of the past
tense, to shall live and reign of future tense. That is too much
change for any man to make who has an ounce of respect for the word of
God. John said

they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years,

The passage says nothing about the thousand year reign of Christ.
there is a great difference in the two expressions. Rev. 20 says;

they lived and reigned with Christ.

“they” who? “lived” lived where? “reigned” how? with whom and
where? Lived and reigned with whom in what place? It is not the reign
of Christ, but the reign of souls with Christ that is mentioned in
Rev, 20. There is a vast difference between living and reigning “with
Christ” and a millennial reign “of Christ”. So let us be true to the
facts of the case. It does not mention the reign of Christ. But the
reign of souls with him. They not only reigned with him they lived
with him. They lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. The
two verbs “lived” and “reigned” are both limited by the thousand
years. If the expression denotes time then when the reign is over and
they cease to reign the living would be over and the would cease to
live. Rev. 20 1 through 6 does mention the second coming of Christ.

Does not mention the second coming of christ. That is not the
subject. It does not mention a bodily resurrection and that is not
the subject of it. It does not mention a reign on the earth nor does
it mention the reign of Christ and neither is the subject. Is it not
possible for souls live and reign with Christ without being on earth?
Furthermore it does not mention the throne of David or any other
throne on earth. And it does not mention either Jerusalem or
Palestine. Nor does it mention Christ on earth. Jesus said
Jerusalem is not the place for men to worship. And they want to put
it there. He said his Kingdom was not of the world. But they want to
put it there and make it of the world. Can Millennialists
consistently say that though it mentions none of these things, it
teaches all of them? 2nd Peter 3:8 says

But beloved be not ignorant of this one thing. that one day
is with the lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years
as one day.

There are only two scriptures in the Bible that mention a
thousand years, one is here in 2nd Peter 3:8. Please note that in
neither scripture is a hint of a millennial reign of Christ on this
earth. However the thought taught in this scripture is, to God a day
in a thousand years, is the same in his infinite being and that time
is nothing in the life of God.
This chart emphasizes the fact that before Pentecost all the
scriptures mentioning the Kingdom of God referred to it as in the
future. But all these scriptures in the Bible beyond Pentecost refer
to the Kingdom being in existence now.
We are often told by the millennialists that the battle of
Armageddon is in the future. And that it will be a physical battle
here on earth. Between the forces of Christ and forces of Satan.
Here again the millennialists, like the pharisee Jews, is looking for
a physical kingdom upon this earth. Confusing the physical, with the
spiritual. The battle of Armageddon is a spiritual battle between
Satan and Christ for the mind and spirit of man. However the battle
of Armageddon is going on at this very moment. Wherein Satan is
seeking your time and attention away from Christ and his truths, as
set forth in the New Testament. It is you who must decide which
direction you will go. It is you who must know the New Testament
truths. No one can learn them for you.
The millennialists have confused the issue again in the case of
the mark of the beast. Here again it is not a physical mark but a
spiritual mark. The millennialists continue to look at earthly
things. Actually the mark of the beast upon the persons hand is a
person who knowingly or unknowingly is doing Satan’s work here on
earth. For as the mark of the beast on the forehead is one who is
thinking like Satan wants him to think in earthly terms. Whereas the
New testament Christian is guided by the will of Christ. As in the
pages of the New Testament. Col. 1: 12,13.

Giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us meet to be
partakers of the inheritors saints in light: who has
delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated
us into the kingdom of his dear Son.

Notice here the New Testament author is talking in the past
tense. More especially in verse 13

Who has delivered us from the power of darkness.

That is he has already done it for Christians, and has
translated us, meaning Christians, into the kingdom of his dear son.
In other words this is already done for Christians since the day of
the Pentecost. Because the kingdom of God is already in existence.
the new testament writer does not say he will do it, meaning he will
do it in the future. So the Kingdom has to be in effect, Now. 1 John
5: 4,5 says

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world. This is a victory
that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh
the world but he that believeth that Jesus is the son of God.

The victory that overcomes the world is in large part to overcome the
precepts of men. Who cloud the true word of God. So that the
misguided will see a Kingdom here on earth instead of the true Kingdom
of God in heaven.
In Matt. chapter 17: verses 4 and 5 Jesus has taken Peter, James
and John up on a high mountain where they saw Moses and Elijah.
Peter wanted to build tabernacles for them all. Then a bright cloud
overshadowed them and Gods voice came out of the clouds saying;

This is my beloved son in whom I ma well pleased. Hear Ye Him.

This teaches us not to listen to the old prophets but to Christ
only. Christ never taught a millennial reign on earth. Nor did the
apostles who wrote the New Testament. Therefore I also pray you also
hear Christ only. Which also completes the prophecy of Daniel and the
seventy weeks as being fulfilled in spite of the Millennialists. From
Matt. 24: 15, 16. The abomination of desolation.

When you therefore see the abomination of desolation spoken
of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place. Who so
readeth let him understand. 16. Then let them who be in
Judea flee into the mountains.

I recognize a well known rule of Biblical interpretation is this:
In order to determine the meaning of a verse in question, it is
helpful to find other verses on the same subject. Often what one verse
does not fully explain, the other will. The Gospel writers often
mentioned the same incident. One may record some details the other
omits. Consequently by comparing parallel accounts we can get a more
complete picture. This is a simple recognized rule on which all
Bible students agree. By such a comparison of the Gospel accounts,
pertaining to our present study, we can see exactly what was meant,
by the abomination of desolation. It is so simple and plain we
wonder how we ever missed it. We ask now that you carefully notice
the parallel accounts. Now step by step let us notice what we are
told in these parallel accounts. Mark 13: 14 tells us.

When ye shall see the abomination of desolation spoken of by
Daniel the Prophet standing where it ought not, let him that
readeth understand. Then let them that be in Judea flee to
the mountains. From Luke 21: 20-24.

And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed by armies then know
that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21. Then let them in
Judea flee to the mountains, and let them that is in the
midst of depart out, and let not them that are in the
countries, enter thereinto. 22. For these be the days of
vengeance that all things that are written be fulfilled.
23. But woe unto them who are with child, or to them that
give suck in those days for there shall be great distress in
the land and wroth upon the people. 24 And they shall fall
by the edge of the sword and shall be led away captive into
all nations. and Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the
gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Luke, using somewhat plainer language states,

And when ye see Jerusalem, compassed by armies then know
that the desolation is nigh. And Jerusalem, shall be trodden
down by the Gentiles that would make Jerusalem desolate.

You see according to Jesus’s own words it was Jerusalem to be
come a desolation. Was to be destroyed. This the Bible plainly
states. Matt. 24: 2. the abomination of desolation. Most
millennialists hold that this prophecy is still in the future. But
Christ said in 24: 2. speaking of the Jewish temple at Jerusalem.

Verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one
stone on another that shall not be thrown down.

It was a shocking statement that Jesus made to his disciples that
day. As they left the temple in Jerusalem certain ones remarked, What
a magnificent temple it was, and how splendid its stones. The temple
and Jerusalem were destroyed by the Roman armies in 79 A.D. But before
this happened, in obedience to the warning Jesus gave, every

Christian fled and thus escaped the awful wrath that befell the city
and country.

In view of the size of the stones used in building the temple it must
have seemed highly improbable that everyone of them would be thrown
down. And yet that is exactly the way it happened. The fire that
ravaged the cedar beams and furnishings within, melted the gold over
which much of the temple was overlaid. It ran down into the crevices
of the mighty stones, and the soldiers literally left no stone
unturned. They even plowed the ground under the temple as they
sought to recover as loot the gold that had adorned the temple.
And here again the millennialists have the cart before the horse. That
is the past confused with the future.

From John 19: 16, 17.

Then delivered he him, to be crucified, and they took Jesus
and lead him away. And he bearing his cross went forth a
place called the place of the skull, which is called in the
Hebrew Golgotha,

Please note that Jesus was crucified near the wall of Jerusalem,
at a place called the skull or Golgotha. Anyone who knows his
geography or has been to Jerusalem realizes that Golgotha is
definitely in Jerusalem . In fact it is a tourist attraction to
this day.
Here in the Bible we are shown that the same earthly city is also
to by known by differing identification. That is Jerusalem is also
referred to by Golgotha and also where our Lord was crucified.

Now, we know Jerusalem
Equals Golgotha.
Equals the place where Jesus was crucified. Revelation 11:8.

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great
city, which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, where
also our Lord was crucified.

Most learned theologians agree that Revelation is written in
cryptic language. Cryptic language is used so that the allies can
transmit messages to one another so that the enemy, who might
intercept them, will not be able to understand them. Revelation is
so written, so that Christians can understand the code, but the
enemies of Christ, that is the antichrist, can not. You therefore
being a Christian, should have no trouble deciphering the following
of Revelation. Here the Bible shows the place the great city where our
lord was crucified which was Jerusalem. Is also called spiritually
Sodom and Egypt. Any Christian layman or scholar knows Sodom and
Egypt were spiritually dead. Therefore, the Bible is showing us
hereby that Jerusalem is spiritually dead.

Now we know.

Jerusalem;
Equals Golgotha.
Equals the place our lord was crucified.
Equals the great city.

Rev. 17:18.

And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which
reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Note here, that the great city identified previously, is also
referred to, as the woman that reigneth over the kings of the earth.
You will note that the cryptic language is still plain to the
Christians

Now we know;
Jerusalem,
Equals Golgotha.
Equals the place our lord was crucified.
Equals the great city.
Equals the woman is that great city.
Equals the great city that reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Rev. 18: 9,10.

And the kings of the earth who have committed fortification,
and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament
for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning. 10.
Standing afar off for fear of her torment, saying, Alas,
that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is
thy judgment come.

Notice here, that the kings of the earth who have committed
fortification lived deliciously with the woman referred to in the
previous slide, and the smoke of her burning, refers also to the
woman of previous slide.

These kings standing afar off from fear of her, the woman’s
torment, said Alas, Alas, that great city Babylon. that
mighty city, for in one hour is come thy judgment.

This scripture shows that Jerusalem the great city that was
burned, was cryptically referred to here as Babylon. Historians tells
us it burned in 70 A.D.

Now we know;
Jerusalem,
Equals Golgotha.
Equals the place our lord was crucified.
Equals the great city.
Equals the woman is that great city.
Equals the great city that reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Equals where the kings of the earth committed fortification with her.
Equals the great city is Babylon.
Equals her burning.
Equals her judgment.
Equals mighty city.

Rev. 17:5.

And upon her forehead was the name written, “MYSTERY,
BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS, AND OF
ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”

The mystery is now plain to the believing Christians. For they now
understand the code of this part of Revelation. In that, it was Gods
desire to convert all God believing and God fearing men to
Christianity, and at the same time, keep the inconvertible Pharisee
Jews from killing all the Christians, before God could destroy
earthly Jerusalem.
Now we know for sure with the code broken for Christians that;

Old earthly Jerusalem
Equals place our lord was crucified.
Equals the great city.
Equals the woman is that great city.
Equals the great city that reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Equals where the kings of the earth committed fortification with her.
Equals the great city is Babylon.
Equals her burning.
Equals her judgment.
Equals mighty city.
Equals Mystery Babylon the great , the mother of harlots, the
abomination of he earth,

So the mystery was that Jerusalem is Babylon. That mystery
was therefore exposed to Christian believers that, Babylon, that great
mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth, is none other than
earthly Jerusalem. For things equal to each other are equal to
themselves. Making the earthly city of Jerusalem therefore Biblically
synonymous as Babylon. The earthly Jerusalem, the great mother of
harlots and abominations of the earth is the Jerusalem that the
millennialists worship. They go so far as to have countless schemes of
sending people to Jerusalem and many people really believe that they
are drawn closer to Christ by drawling closer to the mother of
harlots. What a fraud! Rev. 21 1.

And I saw a new heaven and new earth for the first heaven and
the first earth were passed away. And they was no more
seen.

Notice in this scripture there is a new heaven and a new
earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away. We
actually find in other scriptures that the old earth is burned up
right down to the elements. Rev 21. 10

And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high
mountain, and showed me the Great city, the holy Jerusalem,
descending out of heaven from God.

Jesus here carried John away in the spirit, And while in the
spirit, he saw the great city holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven
from God. This is the new Jerusalem and Spiritual Jerusalem that
John saw when he was in the spirit. This is definitely not speaking
of old Jerusalem. That Great mother of harlots. and the abomination
of the earth. John 4: 23 24.

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall
worship the Father in spirit and truth: For the Father seeketh
such to worship him. 24. God is a Spirit and they that worship
him must worship him in sprit and in truth.

It goes without saying that if we are to believe the Bible, we
are to worship as he directs us, in spirit and in truth. And likewise,
when John was carried away to the new holy New Jerusalem, he was in the
spirit. Then he saw Heaven in that spirit. So the New Jerusalem is
definitely a spiritual Jerusalem. And entrance thereto is earned only by
those who worship God in Spirit and in Truth. But to repeat. Many
Millennialists want us to go back to an earthly Jerusalem. And others
say we will go back to a renovated Jerusalem. But again, these
millennial myths, are not found within the pages of the scripture.

Christ Is God

To reject Christ is to cast aside God. There are at least 15 to
20 scriptures that plainly say, or imply, that to reject the teaching of
Christ, is to cast aside God. This is emphasized here for the many
religions that say they believe in God but do not believe in Christ.
But God plainly says that if you do not believe in his Son, you do not
have the Father either. So one must believe in Christ, to also have the
Father. This was the fault of the Pharisees, that is, the apostate
Jews, for instance, 2 John 1: 9.

Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of
Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of
Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

Quoting from John 4 21

Jesus saith unto her, Woman believe me, the hour cometh, when
ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship
the Father.

Most millennialists, continue to state, that Christ will return
to Jerusalem, to his earthly kingdom, and unscrupulous men spend
thousands of dollars of peoples money sending them on trips to the holy
land. Making them feel they are closer to Christ. However, Christ
himself, stated to the Samaritan woman at the well verse 21

Woman believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this
mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

In other words Christianity is world wide. Not dedicated to
one place, nor to one country. Rev. 1:9

I John, who also am your brother, and companion in
tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ,
was in the Isle that is called Patmos, for the Word of God,
and for the Testimony of Jesus Christ

Please note here, that John was alive when he wrote the book
of Revelation and he definitely stated, in the Kingdom. Revelation
was written on the Isle of Patmos. John was one of the apostles with
Christ, when Christ made the statement, that some of you will not pass
away until you see the kingdom come with power.
So Revelation, Chapter 1 verse 9, proves conclusively, that
John was at that time alive and in the Kingdom before he died. This
proves the Kingdom was in effect since the day of pentecost, and is
not something in the future as expounded by the millennial theorists.

The Second Coming

Matt 6 10.

Thy kingdom come, kingdom thy will be done, in earth as it is in
heaven.

Some Millennialists. imply, that when the Jews didn’t accept
Christ, after he was sent to earth by God, even he himself prayed for
the Kingdom to come. These millennialists go on to state that it is
obvious the kingdom is in the future if christ is praying for it to
come. These theologians either do not understand their Bible or are
purposely deceptive for; as you have seen in this narration, Christ’s
kingdom did not come till after Christ died. It is obvious that if
Christ was alive and praying for his kingdom to come, that kingdom
would not come until immediately after his death. Which it did on
Pentecost. 1900 years ago. Matt. 24, 6

And ye shall hear of wars, and rumors of wars. See that ye
be not troubled. For all these things must come to pass,
but the end is not yet.

But we have the millennialists, crying up one side of the
country, and down other side of the earth, that the end of the world
is getting closer. Because there is more warfare, But Christ said

But ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, see that ye be
not troubled. for all these things must come to pass, but
the end is not yet.

The number of wars that are waged on the face of the earth is
no sign of how close the end is. For remember, as you were formerly
shown, neither man nor Christ nor the angels of heaven, know when the
end is. but the father. That is God alone knows. When he will call
for the end. 2 peter 3 10-14

For the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night;
In which the heavens shall pass away with as great noise, and
the elements will melt with a fervent heat, The earth also,
and the works that are therein shall be burnt up. 11. Seeing
then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of
person ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness.
12. Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of
God. wherein the heavens being on fire be dissolved and the
elements melt with fervent heat. 13 Nevertheless we,
according to his promise, look for a new heavens and a new
earth, wherein dweleth righteousness. 14, Wherefore,
beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent
that ye may found of him in peace, without spot, and
blameless.

Notice that the day of the Lord, which means the end of the
world, will come as thief in the night. Now a thief, who comes in
the night, doesn’t bang of the side of your house making a lot of
noises and arouse you, and let you know you are going to be robbed.
No, a thief comes as quietly as possible, without attracting any
attention, and being unannounced to his victim. So shall Christ come.
Unannounced until the last moment. Notice that at the announcement
the heavens shall pass away with great noise and the heavens melt with
a fervent heat. And the works therein shall be burnt up. Now if
you burn up the elements, the elements are what compose the world,
then, how can an honest millennialists say that this is just a
cleansing fire to renovate the earth? With this in mind, especially,
look at the last portion of verse 12, where it says;

The heavens being on fire, shall be dissolved, and the
elements shall melt with fervent heat.

In Matt 24 36-39 we read;

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels
of heaven, but my Father only. 37. But as the days of Noe
were, so shall also the coming of man be. 38. For as in the
days that were before the flood, they were eating and
drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that
Noe entered into the Ark. 39. And knew not until the flood
came and took them all away; so shall also the coming of
the Son of man be.

Please note here, that Christ is speaking, and he is saying
no man, nor the angles of heaven but the Father only, knows when the
end comes. Yet, the millennialists seem to know when the end is
coming, because they say wars and rumors of wars and all kinds of
earthly things about us are pointing to the end time. The Bible is in
contradiction to their theory. Also note in verse 39

As in the days of the flood

Christ is comparing the flood to the end of the world,
showing the world will go on the way it is, until the last moment. He
says,

And knew not until the flood came and took them all away. so
shall the coming of the Son of Man be.

1 thess. 4 16,18, we read.

And the lord himself shall descend from heaven with a
shout, of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the
dead in Christ shall rise first. 17. Then those who are
alive and remain shall be caught together with them in the
clouds to meet the lord in the air: and so shall we ever be
with the lord. 18. Wherefore comfort ye one another with
these words.

Note here it says the Lord himself will descend from heaven
with a shout, and with the voice of the archangel, and with the
trumpet of God. Then in verse 17, it is very important to note Christ
said,

We that are alive and remain, shall be caught up together
with them in the clouds.

Meaning other Christians, to meet the lord in the air. Please
note it says to meet him in the air. Remember now, the earth is being
burned up and there is nothing to come back to. Nothing left of the
material world. Then the scripture goes on to read,

And so shall we,

And the “we” are the Christians. Ever be with the Lord.
Meaning we will be up in the air away from the earth, Ever with the
lord. There is not one scripture in the whole Bible, that ever makes a
mention of the fact that Christ will ever set one foot on this earth
again in his second coming. Christ said: beware of ravenous wolves in
sheep’s clothing. which was a forerunner of the Trojan horse theory,
which was pointed out in Titus 1: 14.

Not paying attention to Jewish myths, the commandments of
men, who turn always from the truth.

The earthly kingdom message, which is as thick as the air we
breath, has deceived Americans away from the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
For the hope of an earthly kingdom to come. This propaganda hides
from us, our saviour Jesus Christ, and clouds our reason to our
loyalty. The doctrine of the coming world, Israelite political state,
confuses our perspective, of the spiritual Israel of God.
Unfortunately, the nature of man is such, that the kingdom message of
heresy deceives him and it enslaves him and it controls him when he
separates himself from New Testament Bible truths.
It is the purpose of this political religion, in the name and
form of Christianity, to falsely imply that the hope of the world is
to be the Kingdom of God on earth. This Spiritual unity of heaven and
earth, is a Judaized pharisaic veil of world deception. It is
precisely the political Rabbinism which caused the blindness of the
apostate Jews, their rejection of Christ and his subsequent
crucifixion by them. It is also the source of spiritual blindness
which denies the blessings of the Gospel of Christ and divides against
ourselves. Helps us set up a one world Government, the dream of kings
and dictators throughout the ages of history, But do not be fooled by
the devils deception. Cling only to Christ and the New Testament.
The biggest conspiracy of all ages, is to exaggerate every
evil now rampant, and cause a reaction against the established order,
from which we emerge into the millennial superstate, called the
Kingdom of God. Which is even a worse evil, under the mantel of
Christianity. Would you believe that millions of professing
Christians now believe the world Government, the Millennium , is of
God? We’ll they do. To them, the coming theocracy, is the basis of
their christian Faith. So perfectly is the Jewish skullduggery being
staged throughout the news media, that there is no doubt in the minds
of the premillennialists, that Gods Kingdom is close at hand. Do not
be deceived and jump from the frying into he fire. When in 70 A.D.
the nation of Judah and its capitol Jerusalem, were destroyed, people
were no longer called Jews because they lived in a certain nation.
As said before, those who had the Old Testament, who came to
know the Christ spoken of therein, were after their conversion to the
Christian faith, no longer known as Jews, but were known as
Christians. The only people, after 70 A.D., who called themselves
Jews, were those who sought to deceive people. Making them believe
they were the people of the book. When in reality they were members of
a conspiratorial sect. The people of the devil. Who were known as
Pharisees. Since 70 A.D., the word, Jew, has been equal only to
Pharisee. The Pharisee Jews of today, would like trick all people
into thinking they are kin to the God loving people in the Old
Testament days. Remember, it was the sabbath social Jews how never
really studied the scriptures who were misled from Bible truths by the
Pharisees. However the alert Jews who look to God for guidance, were
therefore, looking forward to the Messiah Jesus Christ who were
converted to the truth of Jesus and were therefore no longer religious
Jews but were devout Christians. Rev. 17: 14.

These shall make war with the Lamb but the Lamb shall overcome
them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings, and they
that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

In this worldly jungle of satanic lies and half truths, this is
a comforting scripture which expresses, that those true Christians, who
side with the Lord are the real truly chosen people of Jesus Christ. The
son of God.

Then as Christians, although it isn’t taught in the Bible, we
should not believe any Jewish generated myths. For God commanded, on
the mountain of transfiguration, speaking of his only living Son. Hear
Ye Him.

Yes, this is the end of this narration, but we pray it is just
a beginning for your search for spiritual truth, That you will work out
your own salvation, with scriptures of the New Testament, so you may
spend your eternity with Christ and his Father.
