A Biography Of Jesus Christ: The 1000 Years
"Many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the Law shall go forth of Zion, and the Word of the LORD from Jerusalem ... For He must reign, till He hath put all enemies under His feet"
The result of the Messiah's return (see A Biography Of Jesus Christ: The Return Of The Messiah) will be the fulfillment of the famous "swords into plowshares" prophecy (see also The Business Of War - Swords Into Plowshares).
"4:1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
That process of world conversion (see What Gospel Did Jesus Preach? and The Only Political Party That's Going To Survive) will happen over a period of 1,000 years. Those of the first resurrection (see the Fact Finder question below), which will happen on the days of the Messiah's return, will teach and rule with Him.
"20:4 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 upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
The overall purpose of the 1,000 years is for the Messiah to prepare a sin-free Paradise and the truly "born again" children of God (see What Was The Lesson Of John 3:16?) for the coming of The Father when all has been done.
"15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
At the end of the 1,000 years, the final Judgment before the coming of The Father to Earth.
"20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (Revelation 20:11-15 KJV)
