There is a widespread and persistent “rumour” of a 1000 year kingdom of peace to take place on earth. However, the Bible does not provide any such information, but rather describes a millennium of “hooliganism”.
If it were up to a large number of evangelicals, then the Lord Jesus Christ would appear one day and then set up His 1000-year kingdom of peace on earth. In fact, the Bible speaks of such a kingdom of peace for a thousand years, although this event does not take place on earth, but in the kingdom of heaven. The millennium on earth is an error based on the ideas of the two Jesuits Francisus Ribera and Robert Cardinal Bellarmine (Futurism).
Earthly kingdom of peace presupposed Messiah on earth
A kingdom of peace set up by Jesus Christ also presupposed the “Messiah” who will walk around on earth after his appearance. Not even this option is found in the Bible. This is only the case after the 1000 years have elapsed. With the widespread variant of a messiah walking the earth and a 1000-year-old kingdom of peace, mankind could be wonderfully fooled.
A terrestrial appearance of the “Messiah” also fitted with the notions of the Jewish faith because it still awaits “their national savior”. According to their “Tanach” (for example OT Daniel 9 and Isaiah 53) the Messiah has not yet appeared. However, anyone who believes the Bible already knows today that an “earthly messiah” can only be a well-arranged theatrical performance.
The 1000-year kingdom of peace takes place in heaven
However, the Bible gives numerous indications that this 1000-year kingdom of peace will not exist on earth but in the kingdom of heaven. The Lord Jesus Christ will not set foot on the (desecrated, unclean) earth at this time. Any entry into the earth by a “Messiah” can thus be ruled out from the outset and, in the event of the appearance, also identified as a forgery.
Furthermore, the Bible describes a finally destroyed and uninhabited earth where only Satan and his fallen angels will roam for 1000 years. After the millennium comes the final judgment (keywords Gog & Magog) with Satan, his following fallen angels and the condemned people. Only then does the final cleansing of the earth (consuming fire), the birth of the New Jerusalem and finally the creation of a new heaven and a new earth take place.
Jesus Christ wants to pick up the righteous
The statements of Jesus also indicate that the redeemed will (temporarily) leave the earth and be raptured into the heavenly kingdom and will reign there for 1000 years with Jesus Christ (conviction of God’s righteousness and His judgments). Jesus Christ didn’t want to be where the people are, but He wants the people to be where He is.
“Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.”
Jesus Christ Himself put it in no uncertain terms.
“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.”
The earth will be (temporarily) devastated
The Bible contains clear statements about the fate and temporary condition of the earth (including its inhabitants) after Jesus’ return.
References to destroyed earth in the Old Testament
Already in the Old Testament there are some hints in the typos about how people, animals and earth will finally fare.
Also Job knew in connection with the mortal soul also the state of the earth at the end of time.
“But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he? As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.”
“I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD. I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD. I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests; And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by Malcham; And them that are turned back from the LORD; and those that have not sought the LORD, nor enquired for him.”
“My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust. Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.”
“I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger. “
“Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.”
Nahum also knew what the wrath of God can look like. Nahum 1:4-5:
“He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth. The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.”
“For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.”
References to destroyed earth in the New Testament
2 Peter 3:10:
“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”
2 Peter 3:12-14:
“Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.”
Clear descriptions in Revelation
“Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
“And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.”
The 1000-year kingdom of peace on earth, the previous secret rapture and the appearance of a future single, first-time “Antichrist” are all canceled. This “Antichrist”, or the anti-Christian ideas, already existed in Paul’s time.
The earth will be laid waste at the coming of Jesus Christ and He will not set foot on it at that time. The kingdom of peace is the heavenly kingdom in which the places will be prepared for the redeemed. Only after 1000 years, after the judgment of the wicked, will there be a return to earth for the “final final end”. There will then be a new earth and a new heaven, as described in Revelation chapter 21:
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”
Anyone who is waiting for a Messiah who, according to “stories”, will set his feet on earth before the millennium is about to fall for a deception.
