  • INSTEAD OF LOOKINGFOR A RULING KING,
  • 00:07:16.392 --> 00:07:18.594

  • 00:11:36.352 --> 00:11:38.954
  • IT COMES FROM THE FACTTHAT WE ARE ALL CREATED
  • 00:11:38.988 --> 00:11:41.290
  • IN THE IMAGE OF GOD.
  • 00:11:41.323 --> 00:11:43.092
  • AND EVEN AFTER THE FALL,EVEN UNBELIEVERS RETAIN
  • 00:11:43.125 --> 00:11:46.962
  • A REMNANT OF THAT IMAGEOF GOD INSIDE OF THEM.
  • 00:11:46.996 --> 00:11:51.333
  • THE REASON WE LONG FOR JUSTICE
  • 00:11:51.367 --> 00:11:54.403
  • IS BECAUSE WE ARE CREATED BYA GOD WHO IS A GOD OF JUSTICE.
  • 00:11:54.436 --> 00:11:58.874
  • AND WE HAVE THAT LONGING.
  • 00:11:58.908 --> 00:12:00.910
  • THE ONLY PROBLEM IS WE CAN'TBRING THAT JUSTICE OURSELVES,
  • 00:12:00.943 --> 00:12:04.146
  • WE OUGHT TO STRIVE FOR IT, BUTWE CAN'T BRING IT OURSELVES,
  • 00:12:04.180 --> 00:12:06.949
  • GOD HAS TO BRING IT AND HE WILLSATISFY THAT DESIRE WE HAVE
  • 00:12:06.982 --> 00:12:11.220
  • ULTIMATELY WHEN CHRISTCOMES AND RULES IN JUSTICE.
  • 00:12:11.253 --> 00:12:15.991
  • LOOK AT VERSE 6, "AND THEWOLF WILL DWELL WITH THE LAMB
  • 00:12:16.025 --> 00:12:19.228
  • "AND THE LEOPARD WILL LIEDOWN WITH THE YOUNG GOAT
  • 00:12:19.261 --> 00:12:21.564
  • "AND THE CALF AND THE YOUNGLION AND THE FATLING TOGETHER.
  • 00:12:21.597 --> 00:12:24.867
  • "AND A LITTLE BOY WILL LEAD THEM
  • 00:12:24.900 --> 00:12:26.635
  • "AND THEY SHALL NOT HURT ORDESTROY IN MY HOLY MOUNTAIN
  • 00:12:26.669 --> 00:12:29.738
  • "FOR THE EARTH WILL BE FULLOF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD
  • 00:12:29.772 --> 00:12:32.408
  • "AS THE WATERS COVER THE SEA."
  • 00:12:32.441 --> 00:12:34.443
  • WE SANG THAT SONG,THE LINE AND THE LAMB,
  • 00:12:34.476 --> 00:12:37.046
  • IT COMES FROM THIS PASSAGE,
  • 00:12:37.079 --> 00:12:38.747
  • THAT IS THE COMINGKINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:12:38.781 --> 00:12:41.517
  • REMEMBER IN ACTS 1, WHENJESUS WAS GETTING READY
  • 00:12:41.550 --> 00:12:46.222
  • TO ASCEND INTO HEAVEN AFTER HERECEIVED HIS RESURRECTED BODY
  • 00:12:46.255 --> 00:12:52.428
  • AND HE WAS STANDINGON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES
  • 00:12:52.461 --> 00:12:54.163
  • AND HE WAS ABOUT TODEPART, HIS DISCIPLES SAID,
  • 00:12:54.196 --> 00:12:57.499
  • "LORD, ARE YOU AT THISTIME GOING TO RESTORE
  • 00:12:57.533 --> 00:13:00.870
  • "THE KINGDOM TO ISRAEL?"
  • 00:13:00.903 --> 00:13:03.105
  • THEY WERE IN FACT SAYING,LORD, BEFORE YOU LEAVE,
  • 00:13:03.138 --> 00:13:05.941
  • HAVEN'T YOU FORGOTTEN SOMETHING?
  • 00:13:05.975 --> 00:13:08.077
  • HAVEN'T YOU FORGOTTENTHE WHOLE REASON YOU CAME
  • 00:13:08.110 --> 00:13:10.346
  • WAS TO ESTABLISH YOURKINGDOM ON EARTH?
  • 00:13:10.379 --> 00:13:12.581
  • ISN'T THIS THE TIME TO DO IT?
  • 00:13:12.615 --> 00:13:16.085
  • NOW, IF THE DISCIPLESHAD MISTAKENLY
  • 00:13:16.118 --> 00:13:19.588
  • BELIEVED IN A LITERALKINGDOM, IF THEY WERE WRONG,
  • 00:13:19.622 --> 00:13:22.591
  • THAT WOULD HAVE BEENA TIME FOR JESUS
  • 00:13:22.625 --> 00:13:24.193
  • TO HAVE CLARIFIED THAT FOR THEM.
  • 00:13:24.226 --> 00:13:26.328
  • HE COULD HAVE SAYS, A KINGDOM?
  • 00:13:26.362 --> 00:13:29.064
  • BOYS, YOU GOT IT ALL WRONGTHESE LAST THREE YEARS.
  • 00:13:29.098 --> 00:13:32.468
  • I'M NOT HERE TOESTABLISH A REAL KINGDOM,
  • 00:13:32.501 --> 00:13:35.504
  • JUST A SPIRITUAL KINGDOM;THAT'S ALL I CAME TO DO.
  • 00:13:35.537 --> 00:13:39.341
  • BUT HE DIDN'T SAY THAT, DID HE?
  • 00:13:39.375 --> 00:13:41.477
  • IN VERSE 7 OF ACTS 1,HE SAID IT IS NOT FOR YOU
  • 00:13:41.510 --> 00:13:44.446
  • TO KNOW THE TIME OR THE EPOCHS
  • 00:13:44.480 --> 00:13:46.282
  • WHEN I SHALL DO THESE THINGS,
  • 00:13:46.315 --> 00:13:48.050
  • THAT IS GIVEN TOTHE FATHER ALONE,
  • 00:13:48.083 --> 00:13:50.352
  • HE HAS FIXED IT BYHIS OWN AUTHORITY.
  • 00:13:50.386 --> 00:13:53.355
  • IN OTHER WORDS, HE WASSAYING, IT'S COMING
  • 00:13:53.389 --> 00:13:56.091
  • BUT IT'S COMING ACCORDINGTO GOD'S TIMETABLE
  • 00:13:56.125 --> 00:13:58.761
  • AND NOT TO YOURS.
  • 00:13:58.794 --> 00:14:00.262
  • THERE IS A KINGDOM COMING ANDIT WILL BE THE FULFILLMENT
  • 00:14:00.296 --> 00:14:04.500
  • OF GOD'S ETERNAL PROMISE TOISRAEL AND ISRAEL'S DESCENDANTS.
  • 00:14:04.533 --> 00:14:09.138
  • NOW THAT'S WHATTHE MILLENNIUM IS,
  • 00:14:09.171 --> 00:14:11.774
  • IT IS GOD'S KINGDOM ON EARTH,
  • 00:14:11.807 --> 00:14:14.810
  • THE FULFILLMENT OF THEOLD TESTAMENT PROPHECIES.
  • 00:14:14.843 --> 00:14:17.379
  • NOW THROUGHOUT HISTORY,
  • 00:14:17.413 --> 00:14:18.881
  • THERE HAS BEEN THREE PREVALENTVIEWS ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:14:18.914 --> 00:14:22.217
  • YOU MAY HAVE HEARDTHESE TERMS BEFORE,
  • 00:14:22.251 --> 00:14:24.153
  • LET ME EXPLAIN THEM TO YOU.
  • 00:14:24.186 --> 00:14:25.721
  • THE FIRST VIEW IS THEAMILLENNIAL POSITION
  • 00:14:25.754 --> 00:14:30.125
  • OF THE KINGDOM, AMILLENNIAL.
  • 00:14:30.159 --> 00:14:32.361
  • IN GREEK, THAT WORD A , A,LETTER A, IS AN ALPHA PRIVATIVE.
  • 00:14:32.394 --> 00:14:38.567
  • ANYTIME A APPEARS BEFORETHE WORD IT NEGATES IT,
  • 00:14:38.600 --> 00:14:41.537
  • IT MEANS NO.
  • 00:14:41.570 --> 00:14:43.172
  • THE AMILLENNIAL POSITIONMEANS NO MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:14:43.205 --> 00:14:48.177
  • AND THERE ARE MANYCHRISTIANS WHO BELIEVE THAT,
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:50.479
  • MANY GOOD CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:14:50.512 --> 00:14:52.481
  • MANY OF THOSE WHO SUBSCRIBETO REFORM THEOLOGY
  • 00:14:52.514 --> 00:14:56.185
  • BELIEVE IN AMILLENNIAL POSITION,
  • 00:14:56.218 --> 00:14:58.854
  • THAT THERE IS NO LITERALKINGDOM OF HEAVEN ON EARTH
  • 00:14:58.887 --> 00:15:03.158
  • FOR A THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 00:15:03.192 --> 00:15:04.960
  • THE SECOND VIEWOF THE MILLENNIUM
  • 00:15:04.994 --> 00:15:07.162
  • IS WHAT IS CALLED THEPOSTMILLENNIAL VIEW.
  • 00:15:07.196 --> 00:15:10.366
  • POST MEANS AFTER,
  • 00:15:10.399 --> 00:15:12.601
  • WHEN DOES CHRIST COME?
  • 00:15:12.634 --> 00:15:13.936
  • HE COMES AFTER THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:15:13.969 --> 00:15:17.706
  • THIS IS THE IDEA THAT THEWORLD IS GOING TO GET BETTER
  • 00:15:17.740 --> 00:15:21.677
  • AND BETTER ANDBETTER AND FINALLY
  • 00:15:21.710 --> 00:15:23.846
  • IT WILL BE IN SUCHWONDERFUL SHAPE
  • 00:15:23.879 --> 00:15:26.015
  • THAT CHRIST SAYS I CAN'TSTAY IN HEAVEN ANY LONGER,
  • 00:15:26.048 --> 00:15:28.384
  • I'VE GOT TO COME TOTHIS PERFECT WORLD
  • 00:15:28.417 --> 00:15:30.352
  • THAT MAN HAS CREATEDAND RULE OVER MAN.
  • 00:15:30.386 --> 00:15:33.255
  • NOW THE THIRD VIEW ISTHE PREMILLENNIAL VIEW,
  • 00:15:33.288 --> 00:15:36.358
  • THAT'S THE VIEW I SUBSCRIBEDTO AND MANY OF YOU DO.
  • 00:15:36.392 --> 00:15:40.195
  • PRE MEANS BEFORE, ANDTHAT IS WE BELIEVE
  • 00:15:40.229 --> 00:15:42.731
  • THAT CHRIST MUST COMEBEFORE THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:15:42.765 --> 00:15:45.701
  • ONLY HE WILL BE ABLE TOINSTITUTE HIS REIGN HERE
  • 00:15:45.734 --> 00:15:50.072
  • ON EARTH. NOW, WITHTHAT INTRODUCTION,
  • 00:15:50.105 --> 00:15:53.442
  • WE'RE READY TO GET INTO THE TEXT
  • 00:15:53.475 --> 00:15:55.711
  • FOR THE FINAL MOMENTS WE HAVE.
  • 00:15:55.744 --> 00:15:58.113
  • WE'RE ONLY GOING TO LOOKTHE FIRST SIX VERSES
  • 00:15:58.147 --> 00:16:00.649
  • ABOUT THE BEGINNINGOF THE MILLENNIUM,
  • 00:16:00.682 --> 00:16:02.518
  • AND IT STARTS WITHTHE BINDING OF SATAN.
  • 00:16:02.551 --> 00:16:04.820
  • LOOK AT CHAPTER 20:1,
  • 00:16:04.853 --> 00:16:07.289
  • THEN JOHN SAYS, "I SAW ANANGEL COMING DOWN FROM HEAVEN,
  • 00:16:07.322 --> 00:16:10.659
  • "HOLDING THE KEY OF THE ABYSSAND A GREAT CHAIN IN HIS HAND.
  • 00:16:10.692 --> 00:16:17.099
  • "AND AS ANGEL LAID HOLD OF THEDRAGON, THE SERVANT OF OLD,
  • 00:16:17.132 --> 00:16:22.104
  • "WHO IS THE DEVIL ANDSATAN, AND HE BOUND HIM
  • 00:16:22.137 --> 00:16:25.641
  • "FOR A THOUSAND YEARS."
  • 00:16:25.674 --> 00:16:27.242
  • REMEMBER LAST TIMEIN CHAPTER 19,
  • 00:16:27.276 --> 00:16:29.378
  • WE SAW THAT AT THEBATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON,
  • 00:16:29.411 --> 00:16:31.580
  • THE ANTICHRIST AND THE FALSEPROPHET ARE SEIZED BY AN ANGEL
  • 00:16:31.613 --> 00:16:37.719
  • AND THEY ARE CASTINTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:16:37.753 --> 00:16:39.755
  • BUT WHAT ABOUT THE THIRD PART
  • 00:16:39.788 --> 00:16:41.056
  • OF THAT SATANICTRINITY, SATAN HIMSELF?
  • 00:16:41.090 --> 00:16:43.826
  • WELL, HE HAS A SPECIAL DESTINY.
  • 00:16:43.859 --> 00:16:46.061
  • THAT IS THIS ANGEL TAKES HIM
  • 00:16:46.095 --> 00:16:47.896
  • AND BOUNDS HIM FORA THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 00:16:47.930 --> 00:16:49.731
  • IN OTHER WORDS, TO PUT HIM INTOTHIS PLACE CALLED THE ABYSS,
  • 00:16:49.765 --> 00:16:53.936
  • THE BOTTOMLESS PIT.
  • 00:16:53.969 --> 00:16:55.704
  • LOOK AT VERSE 3, "AND HETHREW HIM," THAT IS SATAN,
  • 00:16:55.737 --> 00:16:58.907
  • "INTO THE ABYSS AND SHUTIT AND SEALED IT OVER HIM
  • 00:16:58.941 --> 00:17:02.911
  • "SO THAT HE WOULD NOT DECEIVETHE NATIONS ANY LONGER
  • 00:17:02.945 --> 00:17:05.914
  • "UNTIL THE THOUSANDYEARS WERE COMPLETED.
  • 00:17:05.948 --> 00:17:09.618
  • "AND AFTER THESE THINGS,HE MUST BE RELEASED
  • 00:17:09.651 --> 00:17:11.854
  • "FOR A SHORT TIME."
  • 00:17:11.887 --> 00:17:13.388
  • HE IS GOING TO BE BOUNDFOR A THOUSAND YEARS
  • 00:17:13.422 --> 00:17:19.828
  • SO THAT HE CAN DO NOTHING ONTHE EARTH FOR A THOUSAND YEARS
  • 00:17:19.862 --> 00:17:21.930
  • DURING THIS MILLENNIUM, THETHOUSAND YEAR REIGN OF CHRIST.
  • 00:17:21.964 --> 00:17:26.135
  • AND THIS IS THE PREDOMINANTFEATURE OF THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:17:26.168 --> 00:17:28.937
  • IT IS A TIME WHENSATAN IS BOUND,
  • 00:17:28.971 --> 00:17:33.008
  • WHICH MAKES THE AMILLENNIALPOSITION SO LUDICROUS.
  • 00:17:33.041 --> 00:17:37.146
  • SATAN IS IN NO WAYBOUND RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:17:37.179 --> 00:17:40.215
  • LOOK AROUND YOU, LOOK IN YOUROWN WORLD AT WHAT'S HAPPENING.
  • 00:17:40.249 --> 00:17:43.485
  • SATAN SEEMS TO BE RUNNINGRAMPANT ALL OVER THE WORLD,
  • 00:17:43.519 --> 00:17:47.856
  • BUT HIS TIME IS SHORT.
  • 00:17:47.890 --> 00:17:49.124
  • THERE IS COMING A TIMEWHEN HE WILL BE BOUND
  • 00:17:49.158 --> 00:17:51.627
  • FOR A THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 00:17:51.660 --> 00:17:52.828
  • NOW, HOW LONG IS THE MILLENNIUM?
  • 00:17:52.861 --> 00:17:56.265
  • WELL, IT'S A THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 00:17:56.298 --> 00:17:58.200
  • IN FACT, IN THE FIRST SEVENVERSES OF REVELATION 20,
  • 00:17:58.233 --> 00:18:01.503
  • THE PHRASE THOUSANDYEARS IS USED SIX TIMES
  • 00:18:01.537 --> 00:18:05.974
  • SO THAT NOBODY MENTIONS IT.
  • 00:18:06.008 --> 00:18:07.809
  • THIS IS A THOUSANDYEAR PERIOD OF TIME.
  • 00:18:07.843 --> 00:18:11.380
  • BUT HERE IN VERSE 4,I WANT YOU TO NOTICE
  • 00:18:11.413 --> 00:18:14.917
  • ONE OTHER ASPECTOF THE MILLENNIUM
  • 00:18:14.950 --> 00:18:16.752
  • THAT GOD REVEALS TO JOHN.
  • 00:18:16.785 --> 00:18:20.088
  • LOOK AT VERSE 4, AFTERSATAN HAS BEEN BOUND,
  • 00:18:20.122 --> 00:18:23.025
  • LOOK AT WHAT JOHN SAYS HE SAW;
  • 00:18:23.058 --> 00:18:25.460
  • "I SAW THRONES ANDTHEY THAT SAT UPON THEM
  • 00:18:25.494 --> 00:18:28.530
  • "AND JUDGMENT WAS GIVEN TO THEM.
  • 00:18:28.564 --> 00:18:31.667
  • "AND I SAW THE SOULS OFTHOSE WHO HAD BEEN BEHEADED
  • 00:18:31.700 --> 00:18:34.870
  • "BECAUSE OF THEIRTESTIMONY OF JESUS
  • 00:18:34.903 --> 00:18:37.005
  • "AND BECAUSE OF THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:18:37.039 --> 00:18:39.107
  • "AND THOSE WHO HAD NOTWORSHIPED THE BEAST OR HIS IMAGE
  • 00:18:39.141 --> 00:18:42.211
  • "AND HAD NOT RECEIVED THEMARK ON THEIR FOREHEAD
  • 00:18:42.244 --> 00:18:44.446
  • "OR ON THEIR HAND,AND THEY CAME TO LIFE
  • 00:18:44.479 --> 00:18:48.317
  • "AND ALSO REIGNED WITHCHRIST FOR A THOUSAND YEARS."
  • 00:18:48.350 --> 00:18:51.220
  • WHO IS HE TALKING ABOUT HERE?
  • 00:18:51.253 --> 00:18:53.188
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE
  • 00:18:53.222 --> 00:18:55.657
  • WHO WERE SAVED DURINGTHE TRIBULATION
  • 00:18:55.691 --> 00:18:57.426
  • AND WERE MARTYRED,BEHEADED FOR THEIR FAITH.
  • 00:18:57.459 --> 00:19:00.662
  • HE SAID, I SAW THEM AS WELL,
  • 00:19:00.696 --> 00:19:03.398
  • AND THEY CAME TO LIFEAND REIGNED WITH CHRIST.
  • 00:19:03.432 --> 00:19:07.002
  • AND THEN HE ADDS THISWORD IN VERSE 5:
  • 00:19:07.035 --> 00:19:09.771
  • "THE REST OF THE DEADDID NOT COME TO LIFE
  • 00:19:09.805 --> 00:19:13.742
  • "UNTIL THE THOUSANDYEARS WERE COMPLETED."
  • 00:19:13.775 --> 00:19:16.812
  • WHO IS THAT?
  • 00:19:16.845 --> 00:19:18.146
  • THAT'S THE UNSAVED DEAD.
  • 00:19:18.180 --> 00:19:19.514
  • AGAIN, WE'LL LOOKAT THAT NEXT WEEK.
  • 00:19:19.548 --> 00:19:21.450
  • THEY ARE RAISED FORJUDGMENT, BUT THEN HE SAYS,
  • 00:19:21.483 --> 00:19:25.053
  • THIS IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION.
  • 00:19:25.087 --> 00:19:26.855
  • EVERYTHING HE HAS JUSTDESCRIBED IN VERSE 4
  • 00:19:26.888 --> 00:19:29.825
  • AND HE ADDS THIS WORD:"BLESSED AND HOLY
  • 00:19:29.858 --> 00:19:32.928
  • "IS THE ONE WHO HAS A PARTIN THE FIRST RESURRECTION;
  • 00:19:32.961 --> 00:19:35.731
  • "OVER THE SECONDDEATH HAS NO POWER,
  • 00:19:35.764 --> 00:19:38.767
  • "BUT THEY WILL BE PRIESTOF GOD AND OF CHRIST
  • 00:19:38.800 --> 00:19:41.837
  • "AND WILL REIGN WITH HIMFOR A THOUSAND YEARS."
  • 00:19:41.870 --> 00:19:45.707
  • HERE JOHN AND PRODUCESAN IMPORTANT CONCEPT
  • 00:19:45.741 --> 00:19:48.644
  • TO UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE.
  • 00:19:48.677 --> 00:19:50.212
  • THERE ARE TWO RESURRECTIONS.
  • 00:19:50.245 --> 00:19:53.148
  • THE FIRST RESURRECTION IS THERESURRECTION OF SAVED PEOPLE
  • 00:19:53.181 --> 00:19:57.853
  • AND THEY ARE RAISEDTO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:19:57.886 --> 00:19:59.888
  • GOD'S BLESSING FOR ETERNITY.
  • 00:19:59.921 --> 00:20:02.324
  • BUT THE SECOND RESURRECTIONIS A RESURRECTION
  • 00:20:02.357 --> 00:20:05.193
  • OF THE UNSAVED; THEYARE RAISED FROM THE DEAD

  • WHO'S A PART OF THEFIRST RESURRECTION.
  • 00:20:17.773 --> 00:20:20.776
  • LET'S IN CLOSING LOOK ATTHIS FIRST RESURRECTION
  • 00:20:20.809 --> 00:20:24.112

  • IF YOU ARE IN CHRIST, YOU'REGOING TO RECEIVE A BRAND NEWBODY,
  • 00:20:55.610 --> 00:20:58.880

  • VERSE 5 SAYS, "THE RESTOF THE DEAD DID NOT COME
  • 00:21:18.233 --> 00:21:21.670
  • "UNTIL THE THOUSANDYEARS WERE COMPLETED."
