“Proving the Future Kingdom of God era is a literal 1,000 year period”

so this class is going to address the timing nature of the restoration of the kingdom of god but not the point of its beginning but the length of its term that first kingdom age lasted over 1600 years from mount sinai where the kingdom was established to that destruction of the temple in the year 70 of the common era and then of course the complete expulsion of the jewish community from the promised land by the roman emperor hadrian following the barkhotska revolt in the year 135 of the common era we’re told six times in revelation 20 that this restored kingdom will last for one thousand years but we’re also told the prophetic book of revelation is a book of signs that this 22 chapter prophecy was signified to john while he was on patmos fortunately there are many of these signs that are actually interpreted for us within john’s john’s testimony for example that lake of fire into which those rejected by christ in that second judgment of the saints is defined as being the second death this refers to the permanent category of death dying forever perishing this is as opposed to the first death of all those who are accountable to the vindication of god’s righteousness who will be required to attend christ’s judgment their death is only temporary that first death the four living creatures described in chapters four and five are interpreted for us as representing the immortalized saints in that approaching kingdom as they declare that the lamb will have redeemed them to god buy his blood out of every kindred and tongue and people and nation and will have made them unto their god kings and priests and they will reign on the earth now of course even if the signs in revelation are not directly defined in that text those signs can be understood on the basis of the common patterns god uses in his two separate testimony witnesses as is always required for a life and death sentence in a trial god’s written word and his spoken word that spoken word is of course the features and operating structure of creation everything except for mankind was verbally commanded into existence or into place during those six evenings and mornings of the creation week and therefore all of creation qualifies as the spoken word of god and the spoken word of god must match the written word of god those four living creatures can be understood by paralleling the details of that vision with the three visions of the caribbean recorded by ezekiel and the vision of the seraphim recorded by isaiah and the vision of the composite man recorded by both daniel and john in revelation chapter one uh we’re both were given both a direct interpretation and the validation through layers and layers of related testimony as to what these four living creatures represent jesus explained why he was commissioned to testify to preach to the enlightened community with those often not very well understood parables in that same intentionally complex teaching pattern used by his father it was as jesus explained to give more to those already within the enlightened community who already had and to take away also from those within the enlightened community who did not have the difference was seeing eyes and hearing ears so in our examination of the term of the anticipated restoration of the kingdom of god we should be able to access both direct testimony and validating shadow testimony that extends from the same substance when the light of truth is applied to that substance of our creator’s testimony so six times uh revelation 20 identifies the term of the restored kingdom age to last 1000 years we’re told twice that the four sin icons of the devil and satan and the serpent and the dragon will be bound in the bottomless pit for a thousand years in verses two and three we’re twice told that the immortalized saints will reign with christ for one thousand years in verses four and six and we are told that after that first resurrection of the saints there won’t be another until after one thousand years in verse five the sixth one thousand year kingdom time stamp informs us that after the conclusion of this one thousand year term the chain and pit restraints will be removed from the influence of sin and the deceitfulness of sin will again be very active in the hearts of mortal mankind but the legitimate question would be is this 1 000 year kingdom term one of those representative time applications or is that term literally 1000 years well if it is symbolic then the interpretation should certainly be able to be found in scripture and that real uh time frame should certainly be able to be defined and if that kingdom term is literally a thousand years then that too should be able to be validated over and over and over in god’s testimony because because god is not a god of confusion he simply uses his intentionally complex testimony policy as a filter to separate between those who have eyes to see and those who do not whether they’re part of the unenlightened or the enlightened communities so let’s consider what other testimony can be found throughout god’s um two witnesses to either validate the legitimacy of this specific 1000-year term or define its symbolic representation first we have to recognize this is a number one thousand and numbers are used in patterns throughout god’s two avenues of testimony to an extreme level forming distinct and very definite patterns one of the interpretation rules that the bible reveals concerning this 1 000 year term is that it is divinely equivalent to a single divine day one evening and morning in a prayer of moses we see this interpretation rule being presented in psalm 90 and verse 4 we read for moses says for a thousand years in your sight our but is yesterday when it’s past and as a watch in the night this divine rule of interpretation is validated by peter in the very context of a prophecy of the destruction of that first kingdom of god and its eventual restoration in ii peter 3 and verse 8 peter writes 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 so we’re told one should not ignore these divinely provided interpretation rules if they wish to truly understand the testimony of god that is always presented with that intentionally complex filtering process that gives more to those who already have while simultaneously taking away from those who have not so we should be asking why why god would chain sins deceptive influence for a thousand years and why the kingdom over which christ and the immortalized saints will reign is defined as a term of one thousand years which is equivalent to a single day to our creator this day for a year interpretation rule offered by god is the key to validating over and over and over again that the kingdom that we do hope to inherit will indeed last for one thousand years which is equal to a single day to our creator this seventh millennium will parallel the seventh day of creation when god rested from his creation activity this was one of the prompts one of the prompts for the law of sabbath observation during that first kingdom age initiated at sinai under moses in fact this is exactly why the deceitful influence of sin will have to be restrained for that one divine day that one thousand year term this will be the sabbath kingdom lasting for one of our creators days 1 000 years other prophecies about this kingdom clearly identify the sabbath day like rest of this kingdom age since there will be a restraining of sin’s influence during this sabbath kingdom there will have to be a complimentary restraining of the physical effects of sin this is why isaiah tells us that dangerous predatory carnivores will be biologically altered to become herbivores and gentle the lion is going to eat straw like a bull wolves will not be a danger to lambs but will actually feed side by side formerly poisonous snakes will pose no threat to even toddlers we read that mortal life mortal life will be extended as someone dying at 100 years old is going to be mourned as if they died far too young with much of their life expectancy ahead of them we read that the the burden of the curse of agricultural product hit unproductivity imposed in eden will be relaxed with far greater productivity and even new agricultural species we read that all military educational centers will be closed and that military weapons will be reforged into agricultural tools a sabbath law also required arrest for service animals as well as the land even the agricultural service animals like like the bullock and the donkey were given a sabbath rest under the laws of the first kingdom age every seventh year that sabbath year the land was supposed to rest this will be the same in the sabbath kingdom in that seventh divine day that seventh millennium when the animals rest and the land rests due to the restraining of the influence of sin there will be a sabbath-like rest from the oppressive physical effects of sin that will be enjoyed by all of creation as all of creation was cursed after sin corrupted the entire previously very good creative order in eden but this sabbath kingdom will only be a rest sin and death will not be eliminated from creation during this 1000 year sabbath kingdom it will be the next divine day the following day to this sabbath day kingdom period of 1 000 years in that eighth divine day when sin and death will be cut away completely in circumcision like fashion and that provides another layer of this sabbath day kingdom framework this would be the progression of the two signature rituals of the abrahamic covenant of faith and the mosaic covenant of works the divinely appointed signature ritual of the mosaic covenant of works was sabbath observance that seventh day um so let’s look at that evidence in exodus 31 picking up at verse 12 and the lord spoken to moses saying speak thou also under the children of israel saying verily my sabbaths you shall keep for it is a sign that’s the hebrew word oth it’s also translated token it’s a sign a token between me and you throughout your generations that you may know that i am the lord that does sanctify you you shall keep my that keep the sabbath therefore for it is holy unto you everyone that defiles it shall surely be put to death for whoever does any work during that soul shall be cut off from among his people six days may work be done but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest holy to the lord whosoever does any work in the sabbath day he shall surely be put to death wherefore the children of israel shall keep the sabbath to observe the sabbath throughout their generations for a perpetual covenant it is a sign a token between me and the children of israel forever for in six days the lord made heaven and earth and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed we see this confirmed in ezekiel 20 this issue of sabbath observance being the signature ritual of the mosaic covenant so ezekiel 20 verse 12 moreover also god says i gave them my sabbaths to be a sign oth a token between me and them that they may know that i am the lord that sanctify them and verse 20 and hallow my sabbaths and they shall be a sign a token between me and you that you may know that i am the lord your god now this hebrew word translated sign is the same word that is translated token in relation to defining circumcision as the signature ritual of the abrahamic covenant of faith in genesis 17 picking up at verse 10 god says this is my covenant which you shall keep between me and you and your seed after you every man-child among you shall be circumcised again he defines that as the covenant verse 11 and you shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin and it shall be a token same word oth sign of the covenant between me and you and he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you every man-child in your generations either born in the house or bought with money of any stranger which is not of your seed this is the same word oth token sign that’s used in relation to uh defining the rainbow as the token of the uh covenant god made with noah that he would you the rainbow would be proof a token a sign that he would not destroy the earth with water ever again so the signature ritual of the mosaic covenant of works was the day of rest seventh day the rest from the burden of the physical effects of the curse of sin and death this is the number seven the seventh day the day of rest however the signature ritual of the abrahamic covenant of faith was circumcision the cutting away of the flesh on the eighth day these two covenant signature rituals are shadow prophecies of the seventh and eighth divine days those seventh and eighth millenniums in the plan of the creator in the sabbath day kingdom lasting one divine day of 1000 years there will be a rest from the oppression of sin but only a rest we are told specifically that it will be after the conclusion of the sabbath kingdom that the restraints of sin will be removed ending that rest this will have to be the following divine day therefore the eighth the eighth millennium there will be a rebellion as explained in revelation 20 the defeat of that rebellion then a second resurrection of the enlightened community for the purpose of judgment and then a second immortalization event for the saints well although literally it will be the third as jesus served as the exclusive participant for the first immortalization event that would have been three days before three divine days three thousand years and following that third salvation event the fourth salvation event will be realized through the complete elimination of death and and therefore sin as we’re clearly told that death is the wages of sin so the elimination of death will automatically eliminate sin from creation and this results in what paul defines as god being all in all perfect harmony between heaven and earth between spiritual and physical but the sabbath kingdom only offers a sabbath day rest from sin not the complete elimination of sin that complete cutting away of death and flesh is scheduled for the eighth divine day in the exact pattern of the two signature covenant rituals but there’s there’s there’s actually an immense depth validating uh this seven and eight divine day pattern which projects that seventh and eighth day uh millennium pattern in our creator’s plan so let’s consider the question as to why jesus had to be dead for three complete days i mean why couldn’t they have been dead for a few hours still have been dead what could it be why not a week or a month wouldn’t that have been a dramatic alive again after a month why exactly three complete days let’s not make that silly mistake of respecting the harlot church’s false doctrine of a friday afternoon crucifixion and a sunday dawn resurrection for our messiah as that objection as that that declares that jesus was testifying falsely about being dead for three days and three nights and it is very easy to prove that jesus died on wednesday afternoon on the 14th of nisan in the year 30 of the common error era and then he rose first immortality on the sabbath afternoon of the 17th and then rose to immortality at the beginning of the next day sunday just after the sunset when the new jewish day began there’s a long list of validations that confirm jesus was telling the truth when he said he would be dead for three days and three nights and also that he would be he would die but he would come back to life after three days not after less than two days not after one and a half days and just two nights as paganized christianity insists we see this presented in mark 8 31 it says and he began to teach them that the son of man must suffer many things and be rejected of the elders and of the chief priests and scribes and be killed and after three days rise again and in matthew 27 we read that everybody knew this everybody knew this testimony this is where they speak to the jewish leaders speak to pilate says sir we remember that that deceiver said while he was yet alive after three days i will rise again command therefore the sepulcher made sure until the third day lest his disciples come by night and steal him away and say to the people he’s risen from the dead it was three full days as jesus repeatedly testified for the term of his death now like i said there’s many ways to prove this but one quick example would be john records that jesus appeared in that locked room with his disciples and according to the marx account those same two disciples that came back from emmaus and that was the evening of the first day of the week well that would be sunday night with the full 12 hours of darkness always preceding any daylight whatsoever of any day in the jewish equation in the jewish measure of a day this sunday evening would be equivalent to what we would call our saturday evening as of course the jewish community followed the pattern of the creation record where the full 12 hours of night preceded the 12 hours of daylight and since jesus appeared alive and apparently immortal appearing in a locked room somewhat after the sabbath sunset and having already walked to emmaus with two of his disciples as well as their two-hour return trip over those more than seven miles from emmaus to jerusalem to witness jesus appearing just after dinner then very obviously jesus had to have exited the tomb saturday afternoon which would have been a full three days and three nights as he said after his death on wednesday afternoon and in the year 30 of the common era passover that 14th of nisan nissan did fall on a wednesday and with therefore thursday being that high sabbath first day of the feast of unleavened bread there are several other ways to confirm that jesus was dead for a complete three days just like he repeatedly testified but let’s consider how actually believing the testimony of jesus has a direct application to our consideration of the thousand-year term of the approaching kingdom jesus was under the power of death for three complete days this is a shadow prophecy of how all of creation will continue under the power of death for three subsequent divine days of one thousand years each death will be eliminated after that third divine day but that absolutely demands the understanding that the second kingdom age will last for a single divine day of one thousand years just like revelation 20 declares six times in a row this term of three millenniums from the death and resurrection of the savior to the harmonious blending of heaven and earth is also validated in the heaven and earth covenant between god and abram which is recorded in genesis 15. god required three earthbound animals sacrificial animals that were each specifically three years old he demanded one to be a male and two to be females god told abram to cleave those three earthbound sacrificial animals in order to make six components to which was added to whole fowl of heaven which are not gender identified making a total of eight components now eight is the number of both salvation and particularly our savior as he is very definitely the man of eights the gender requirements of these three cleaved earth-bound sacrificial animals perfectly matches the gender assignments of the christ bridegroom and the two applications of the of his bride in those two resurrections of the saints the three-year maturing requirement is a shadow prophecy of the three millenniums from the sacrifice of jesus christ that that man from both heaven and earth to that third immortalization in that eighth divine day once again we have a confirmation that in order for the third salvation event of that second set of saints that bride category to be realized in the eighth divine day then we’re going to have to have an entire seventh day preceding that eighth day which again validates the full one thousand year term that seventh divine day for the sabbath kingdom of which christ and the saints will rule and there will be a rest from sin because sin’s influence will be chained now let’s provide even more depth to the hidden glory in god’s testimony that’s reserved only for those within the enlightened community possessing eyes at sea and ears that hear we’re going to see that 7-8 pattern extended beyond the two signature covenant rituals to the two resurrections experienced by jesus christ and the two subsequent promised resurrections of the saints this seven and eight shadow pattern is very extensively presented in a salvation framework all through scripture this seven and eight pattern is a validation of the thousand-year term of the millennial kingdom because you can’t have an eighth divine day an eighth millennium until the seventh divine day seventh millennium has fully concluded so let’s recognize that jesus was both the seventh and the eighth participant in a resurrection as recorded in scripture however these these were two separate resurrection categories the first was to mortality and the second was to immortality god’s written word records that there were six people that preceded jesus in experiencing a resurrection from death back to mortal life these included the son of the widow of zarephath which was done by elijah the son of the shunamite woman performed by elijah the man whose corpse touched the bones of elisha and revived the fourth was the son of the widow of name brought back to life by jesus the fifth was the daughter of jairus at capernaum again by jesus the sixth was lazarus and jesus was the seventh and that was on a seventh day a saturday sabbath as opposed to the high day sabbath following the death of jesus just like john notes in chapter 19 come yeah but that seventh resurrection on that seventh day was followed by christ’s resurrection to immortality after the sabbath sunset because as jesus tells mary after the end of the sabbath that he had not yet ascended to his father but will be this is this is like the waving of the first fruits to heaven on the day after that high sabbath in the feast of unleavened bread jesus rose to his father and his god to immortality on that day after the sabbath that day after the seventh day and therefore not only was jesus the seventh to participate in a resurrection on a seventh day he was the eighth to participate in a resurrection on the next or eighth day this is the same seven and eight pattern that we saw in the signature rituals of the mosaic and abrahamic covenants just like the prophetic nature of the three days of death experienced by our savior so these two resurrections of our messiah are shadow prophecies of the two promised resurrections of the saints the first will be in the beginning of the seventh divine day that’s seventh millennium since creation and the second will be after the conclusion of that sabbath kingdom of rest which means it will be in the eighth divine day then eighth millennium now another subtle confirmation would be the timing of the six hours of crucifixion that jesus suffered by jesus well first let’s recognize the validation of the full three days and three nights that jesus testified he would be dead and how that’s validated in the three hours of daylight and three hours of darkness defining the crucifixion of the son of god jesus was crucified at the third hour of daylight on passover day that fourteenth day of nissan at the sixth hour a miraculous darkness descended on that region and possibly the entire world after three more hours of that darkness jesus died which was an incredibly short time for anyone to die from crucifixion which was actually expected to last for days those three hours of light and three hours of darkness for christ’s crucifixion parallel and validate the three days and three nights of his death similarly the doubled seven and eight pattern in the two resurrections of jesus are subtly validated in the timestamps of his crucifixion the crucifixion of jesus began at the third hour of the day but that would be the 15th hour of passover day due to the the full night preceding daylight 15 is the total of seven plus eight now the end point for that crucifixion was the death of jesus which was at the ninth hour of the day which would be the 21st hour of the full passover day which is equivalent to seven eighths of the entire day now perhaps a single time stamp with that seven and eight pattern might possibly suffer the accusation of being contrived but not both time stamps and also not in the parallel pattern of those two resurrections let’s not make the mistake of suggesting there were any other resurrections experienced between the death of jesus when the grace of the saints were opened by the earthquake and that second resurrection of jesus we’re specifically told by matthew that the graves of the saints were certainly uncovered at the death of jesus but they did not exit their graves and enter the city until after the resurrection of jesus perhaps now in the light of this pattern that we can see we can understand why that fourth divinely designed sanctuary that jesus will build the temple in that sabbath kingdom will have seven steps to climb in order to enter the outer court of that temple but then another eight steps to climb in order to enter the inner court of that divinely designed temple i’ll just give the references for this it’s the they’re both in ezekiel 40 verses 20 to 26 31 34 37 that detailed that seven and eight pattern for approaching the presence of our god the significance of this seven and eight pattern in the two historical resurrections of jesus christ and the two promised resurrections of the saints is emphasized by the repeated shadows by the two witnesses of god his written word the bible and his spoken word creation for example there were eight separate categories of animal sacrifices under the laws of the first kingdom of god but only seven of those categories were burned at the altar of burnt offering what paul defines as the christ altar these were the bullock the male and female goat the male and female sheep and the gender undefined the genderless peached pigeon and turtledove but the eighth category sacrificial category was the female bovine that red heifer um there were no female bovines offered on the altar burnt offering that eighth sacrificial category was burned outside the camp with its ashes uh cleansing from the development of death on those third that third and seventh days we can also extend this seven and eight pattern in these sacrificial animal categories to embrace the saints as well as our messiah just like the two resurrections of the saints when we add the other four bloodless and agricultural offerings to those eight we get a total of 12 which is the number of the saints those four agricultural offerings included bare unprocessed grain and then secondly crushed grain that fine flour and thirdly the exclusively unleavened bread as leaven was never ever allowed on the christ altar of burnt offering and fourthly the drink offering the wine that total of 12 sacrificial offerings projects the saints in addition to our savior who was seen in all the sacrificial categories required by god under kingdom law that second divine witness of creation the spoken word of god validates the significance of this same seven and eight pattern it was the second day of creation when the firmament or our planet’s atmosphere was created from nothing just the response to the creator’s verbal command of let there be a firmament that firmament is identified with salvation in daniel chapter 12 we read in in daniel’s prophecy and many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake some to everlasting life and some to shame and everlasting contempt and they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn many to righteousness as to stars forever and ever so the immortalization of the saints is defined in relation to the brightness of the firmament but this firmament identification with salvation is also validated by the son of god nicodemus could not understand how one had to be born again to inherit the kingdom so jesus explained that being born of the spirit being reborn into god’s eternal spirit nature was to become like the wind so in john 3 and interestingly verses 7 and 7 and 8 jesus says to nicodemus marvel not that i said unto you you must be born again the wind blows where it lists and you hear the sound thereof but you cannot tell whence it cometh and wizard goeth so is everyone that is born of the spirit jesus quotes creation to explain his point he defines the immortalization procedure as being like wind our moving atmosphere our firmament now this firmament of our planet shares this same seven and eight pattern god designed that ferment earth’s atmosphere to consist of two basic elements as more than 99 of our atmosphere is made up of a combination of two elements nitrogen and oxygen the element nitrogen is numerically defined as seven seven seven because each atom is constructed with seven protons seven electrons and seven neutrons interestingly and appropriately at least from a spiritual perspective nitrogen comprises 78 percent of our planet’s firmament oxygen is numerically defined as eight eight eight due to each atom’s eight protons eight electrons and eight neutrons this eight eight eight identification with oxygen parallels the eight eight eight identification of our savior the six alphanumeric greek letters forming the name of jesus in the greek add up to exactly eight eight eight these are iota eta sigma omicron epsilon and sigma eight eight eight just like the three immortalizations in the creator’s plan and just like that eighth element oxygen this seven and eight pattern and how it repeatedly fits within a salvation frame in both the written words of god the bible and the spoken words of god creation validate and emphasize those two promised salvation events of the saints in the seventh and the eighth days like the seventh day sabbath rest millennium and the eighth day millennium on all that is flesh will be cut away in circumcision like fashion leaving only eternal spirit life now this is only part of the evidence for understanding that the anticipated restoration of the kingdom of god to be ruled by jesus christ and the immortalized saints is accurately described those six times in revelation 20 as lasting for one thousand years there really is actually a lot more to this seven and eight pattern other validations hidden in the intentional complexity of our creator’s testimony for the review of those within the enlightened community who have developed seeing eyes and
