A few days ago I started a discussion about what is coming ahead in the next age of Earth’s history. As I write tonight I am watching a T.V. show called “Is There Hope For America?” The topic parallels our discussion from these last weeks. Judgment is coming according to the Bible. Yet there is hope for America if we will embrace the mercy of Christ. If we do we shall walk with Christ in those days ahead called the thousand-year-reign. What shall they be like?
In those days:
Men Shall Live Long Lives with no sickness:
Scripture indicates that there will be two races of men in this time. The redeemed-Those who left Earth in the rapture before the Tribulation. These will be immortal (according to Revelation 20:4-6)
The men who live through the tribulation- These are those who survive the Great Tribulation but do not take the mark of the Beast. Isaiah indicates that children will be born during this time and will have a choice to follow Christ or not.
“Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; He who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere youth; He who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed.” Isaiah 65:20 NIV
The enmity between mankind and the animal world will be eliminated:
“The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear. Their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child put his hand into the viper’s nest.” Isaiah 11:6-8 NIV
The ancient link between man and God will be restored.
“They will not toil in vain or bear children doomed to misfortune for they will be a people blessed by the Lord they and their descendants with them. Before they call I will answer. While they are still speaking I will hear.” Isaiah 65: 23,24 NIV
A time is coming for those who will serve God in which sickness and death will be done away with. True unity with the creation will be achieved and the constant supernatural blessing of God will flow down upon us continually.
These are the days I am living for!
