The Millennial Kingdom

The Millenium

Have you noticed the turmoil in governments today? The division and chaos are worldwide. However, there is something to look forward to; the Millennial Kingdom, a time of peace spread upon the whole world with a new leader.

The Issue

Our government in the U.S. is in a very vulnerable state. The most evident of this state is the January 6th insurrection, with an attack on the Capitol to interrupt the peaceful transition of power.

                                                       The Insurrection of the US Capitol

The next sign of this vulnerability is the recent election of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. For the first time in approximately one hundred years, it occurred with much controversy. It took fifteen rounds of voting and lasted four days. This process, which is usually a characteristically run-of-the-mill government process, was turned into a theatrical spectacle exposing a significant susceptibility in Congress. In order for the nominated Speaker to obtain the votes required to be elected to the position, he yielded substantial concessions to a small group of ultra-conservatives that included making it easier to remove him from office and giving them more significant contributions in writing and passing laws, and in lawmakers’ positions with committees, where Congress is most effective.

This scenario is only the beginning of the potentially crippling confusion that will threaten our government’s effectiveness. These right-winged, ultra-conservatives literally high-jacked Congress until they got their way. Although they were a minority unit, they used their unity for leverage to fulfill their goal. Therefore, one can conclude with the assurance that this leverage will be used in their future endeavors, ultimately high-jacking the government to get their way.

This set of circumstances places crucial legislation, such as the government’s funding, to keep it open and avoid defaulting on its obligations, along with other ominous spending bills on a battlefield. Should the government ever reach the spending limit, which could occur this summer, it will no longer be able to borrow money to pay off its debts, possibly forcing a default. That could cause severe damage to the world’s financial system. Among other consequences, U.S. Treasuries would no longer be considered a safe investment.

Imagine the government on such shaky ground. To make things worse, looking at the big picture, the U.S. is not the only country with governmental problems. There are governmental protests and upheaval in governments around the world. This condition is a worldwide political pandemic affecting all forms of government with continued escalation.

In the U.S., this defeats the purpose of government, which is to help the citizens.

What Does the Bible Say?

The Bible says in 1 Cor. 1:10:

10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

In this Scripture, Paul addressed the church at Corinth, saying there should be unity and no divisions among them. Unity is one of the most potent forces available to man on earth. Unity gets God’s attention (Gen. 11:4-8). Division only leads to confusion and chaos.

Does this apply to government? Absolutely! Even though we have a two-party government, there must be the ultimate goal of agreement on some level…for the sake of the people.
However, this is becoming more of a pipe dream rather than a reality.

What is the Answer?

How long can this go on? What is the solution? Unfortunately, this worldwide upheaval will not get any better until the return of Christ. Jesus stated that before He returns, there will be “great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”
[Matt 24:21-22]

According to this prophecy of Jesus, what we are witnessing today in our governments is only the beginning of what is to come.

The Millennium Kingdom - The Beginning of Sorrows

Jesus Said in Matt 24:6-8

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Notice in verse 8 that these things are only “the beginning of sorrows.” These will be a prelude to sufferings. Jesus’ words indicate that there will be a period prior to the end of the age and the future kingdom — it was not to come that week, nor immediately upon Jesus’ resurrection, or promptly after the devastation of Jerusalem.

First, much suffering must occur as a part of life on earth as history moves toward a single, final, God-planned goal — the creation of a new earth and a new kingdom (Rev 21:1-3). The description of sufferings as “sorrows”
is a common biblical metaphor for the commencement of pre-kingdom travail and suffering (see Isa 13:6-8; 26:16-18; Jer. 4:31; 22:20-23; Hos. 13:9-13).

Therefore, we Christians must not be alarmed. Jesus has warned us about them, and we know they must pave the way for the arrival of God’s magnificent kingdom. Everything will happen as per God’s divine plan. Our responsibility is to endure, be prepared, and continue preaching the Good News to all nations (Matthew 24:14).

Ultimately, Jesus is the answer to the resulting troubled condition of the world. Isa 9:6-7 reads:

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

The Millennium Kingdom
                                                                     Jesus will usher in peace !

These two verses contain one of the most significant prophecies of Jesus in the Old Testament. In verse 6, it states that “the government shall be upon his shoulder.” Jesus will be the One who will eventually rule the world and bring peace to the earth as the eventual governor and ruler. He is called “the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” His rulership will be eternal, as the Scripture reads, Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end” (vs. 7).

The Millennial Kingdom – Jesus to the Rescue!

The ushering in of the Millennial Kingdom by Christ will be the answer to all of the forthcoming upheaval that will come upon the world.

The Millennium Kingdom

The Scriptures inform us that when Christ returns to the earth, He will install Himself as king in Jerusalem, sitting on the throne of David (Luke 1:32–33). The Davidic Covenant promised Israel a king from David’s line who would rule forever—giving the nation rest from all their enemies (2 Samuel 7:10–13).

At the second coming, this and other covenants will be fulfilled as God’s people are gathered again from the nations (Matthew 24:31), converted (Zechariah 12:10–14), and restored to the land under the rule of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. The Scriptures address the conditions during the millennium as a perfect environment physically and spiritually. It will be a time of peace (Micah 4:2–4; Isaiah 32:17–18), joy (Isaiah 61:7, 10), and comfort (Isaiah 40:1–2). The Scriptures also tell us that only Christian believers will enter the millennial kingdom. Because of this, it will be a time of obedience (Jeremiah 31:33), holiness (Isaiah 35:8), truth (Isaiah 65:16), and the knowledge of God (Isaiah 11:9, Habakkuk 2:14). Christ will rule as king (11:1–10). Nobles and governors will also rule (Isaiah 32:1; Matthew 19:28), and Jerusalem will be the world’s political center (Zechariah 8:3).

There are some who believe that the millennium kingdom is symbolic and not an actual one thousand years but is a way of expressing an extended period of time. However, Revelation 20:2-7 gives the specific time period of the millennial kingdom. Actually, six times in that passage, the millennial kingdom is expressly said to be 1,000 years in length.

Additionally, numerous other passages of Scripture point to a literal reign of the Messiah on the earth. The fulfillment of many of God’s covenants and promises rests on a literal, physical, future kingdom. Therefore, there is no solid basis for refuting the literal interpretation of the millennial kingdom and its duration of 1,000 years.


The time is coming when Christ will return to earth again. In Rev 22:12, He said, “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”

However, we do not know when for He also said in Mark 13:32, “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.”

Therefore, we simply do not know. Even though more events are to occur before Christ returns, they can transpire quickly enough during our lifetime to witness His grand return.

As a result, it behooves us to take the advice of Jesus, who said, “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” (Matt 24:42).

Therefore, we must stay ready for when He comes, He will already have His reward with Him, and all judgment will have been completed (Rev 22:12).

    It’s fascinating how you discuss the need for unity in government and draw parallels with the biblical principle of unity in the church. Your insight into the troubled state of the world and the scriptural references provide a unique perspective.

    1. Hi Katy – The best advice I can give on preparing for the times of uncertainty is to follow the Scriptures. Prov 3:5-8 reads:
      5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
      6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
      7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.
      8 This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.

  3. “Hi, Nathaniel,
    I just read your article about the Millennial Kingdom, and it really got me thinking! It’s interesting to read about the prophecies and how they relate to the current state of the world. It’s comforting to know that, despite the chaos, there is hope and a plan.
    I’m wondering, how do you think we can stay hopeful and keep faith in such turbulent times? Do you believe there are signs we should look for that signify the nearing of the Millennial Kingdom?
    I’d love to hear more discussions on this topic. Has anyone else found peace in these prophecies, or do you have different interpretations of the scriptures mentioned?
    Thanks for sharing this perspective! Exploring different viewpoints on the scriptures and what they mean for our future is always enlightening. Looking forward to more insightful articles and discussions on your site!
    Warm regards, 


    1. Hi Max – As the turbulent times increase, it will be indicative of the nearing of Christ’s return. In the meantime, Prov 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” NIV

      We must trust in God through Christ and follow His Word.

  4. Very detailed breakdown about what God’s Word says about the millennial reign of Christ. While I don’t hold to your one-sided assessment of our current politics, I will agree with you that our U.S. government is in shambles and it is divided to where nothing can get accomplished. The budget talks are the same every time and ultimately there is an agreement. But enough of that. 

    I agree with you that the Bible teaches a literal 1,000-year reign of Christ. It will be a time of victory for the Lamb. I do not believe though that this is the “new heaven and new earth.” The Bible teaches that this will come after the 1,000 years. There will be another great battle after the millennium. Satan will be loosed from the bottomless pit where he will once again deceive many. There will be a final battle, after which all the dead will be raised, some for eternal life and others for eternal damnation. Revelation is very clear about this. Then there will be a new heaven and new earth. I am looking forward to that day. “Even so come, Lord Jesus.

    1. You are correct, Scott; the Millennial Kingdom is not the new heaven and the new earth that will arrive after. In any event, it will be much better than the kingdom we live in now. Man has proven himself insufficient to govern himself.

      Thanks for commenting!

  5. Hi, I am not a Christian, but I grew up in a Christian home. There are a LOT of cool things that are taught. For example the ten commandments. If people were to follow them, none of this terrible stuff would be happening. It’s a reflection of a separation from the good values that are taught in the Bible.

    1. Absolutely, Jake. If we followed the Ten Commandments, the world would be a much better place. Your Christian roots are remaining steadfast.

      Thanks for commenting!

  6. However, we do not know when for He also said in Mark 13:32, “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” I love this from the scriptures. Keep in mind that those in power are masters at deception and they work for for the father of all lies.

    God Bless!


    1. That is correct, Pete; we do not know the day or the hour. So we live in hope that He will come soon and that we will be ready for His return.

      Thanks for commenting!

  7. Your article is timely and well-researched using The Word (The Holy Bible) which I believe is inspired content that seamlessly weaves a true guide written for us all over 2000 years to view current world events and for what is to come in the shorter term prior to the return of Yashua, or as some know Him by, Jesus.

    The United States is a divided country right now, in Government and between its citizens. I think the division is not as pronounced as the media likes to portray with the state of politics (controversy sells) or amongst the population though. The ultra-right are extremists and need to be stopped in my opinion. The end game for them is raw power and chaos so they can maintain that power. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

    In the USA and in many other areas, there are forces that are creating such a divide and fomenting hate, crime, and unrest. As followers of Jesus, I think it is important that we get to know Him and Yahweh (YHWH) on a personal basis so we can keep things in perspective. It is not this world we should focus on, but rather the next that you so eloquently described and as depicted in The Holy Bible!      

    1. For sure, Dave, we need to get as close to Jesus as we can. After all, He is our only hope. This world is not our home; we must focus on that fact. In fact, I am working on an article focusing on our coming out of the world. Although we are in the world, we are not to be of the world. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we can rise above the chaos of the world.

  8. Hi there! Your post brings up some fascinating points about the challenges in today’s governments, not just in the U.S. but globally. The idea of a Millennial Kingdom does sound intriguing, especially in the midst of such turmoil. I’m curious to know more about how you see unity being achieved in today’s complex political landscape. Do you think there are specific steps that could be taken to bring about more agreement and harmony, both in the U.S. and on a global scale? It’s an engaging topic, and I’d love to hear your thoughts on potential solutions or paths forward. 🌍🤔 #GovernmentChallenges #MillennialKingdom #UnityInPolitics

    1. Hi Debby – I think the only resolution is compromise. Each side has to realize that they can’t have their way totally and make concessions. This is how the US government operated during more civil times. However, since we live in such a narcissistic climate these days, that is next to impossible to achieve without prayer. 2 Chron 7:14 reads, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

      I think it’s the only step left. Because if things don’t get better soon, disaster will be on the horizon.

      We must pray, Debby—pray!

      Thanks for commenting!

  9. Hi Nathaniel, thank you for this great blog post on the Millennial Kingdom. It is a very informative and in depth article and I found it to be a great read. As someone who is new to Christianity and is starting to practice more, your website is invaluable to me with plenty of resources and information.

    1. Greetings, Ebony. Thank you for your kind words regarding the article and the website. May it continue to bless you and aid you in your walk with the Lord.

      Thanks for commenting!

  10. Excellent article! It will inform all the religious people about the return of Jesus, and the events that will happen before and after that. It’s very interesting that you make a comparison with the political events that happened in the Capitol in 2020. I must say I was scared because it was the first time that the political alternance was threatened. Good job!

    1. Yes, Angelce and the events that have followed since have shed even more light on the government’s vulnerability. The time of humans governing themselves is coming to a close. Thank God that we have His coming government to look forward to.

      Thanks for commenting!

  11. Tbe present state of confusion is not unique to united state alone. It is a global challenge and a pointer to the coming of our Lord. While we do not have control over the present wars and poltical instability, we must prepare for the coming of our lord and master. Like you rightly pointed out, we must speak one voice and wait diligently for the coming of our Lord 

    1. Indeed, it is a global challenge Parameter. But we have the return of the Lord to look forward to and give us hope.

      Thanks for commenting!

  12. I found this article on the Millennial Kingdom quite thought-provoking. The concept of a thousand-year reign is intriguing, but I’m curious about how different Christian denominations interpret and understand this idea. Could anyone here shed some light on the various perspectives and teachings related to the Millennial Kingdom? Thanks so much for sharing. I highly appreciate it. 

    1. Greetings, Kiersti—Some choose to interpret the 1,000 years allegorically. They understand the 1,000 years as merely a symbolic way of saying “a long period of time,” as opposed to a literal, physical reign of Jesus Christ on the earth. However, six times in Revelation 20:2-7, the millennial kingdom is expressly said to be 1,000 years long.

  13. We are indeed living in very turbulent times, with governments often struggling to keep chaos from entering, and keeping peace between different factions. It is interesting how you bring the Millennium Kingdom into this scenario. 

    We do not know when Christ will return to earth, but it is important that we are prepared for His return. I am slightly confused with the start of the Millennium Kingdom. Will the return of Christ mark the start of the Millennium Kingdom that will last for a thousand years? Or are we already in it? 

    Thank you for clarifying.

    1. Greetings, LineCowley – The return of Christ is when the Millennium Kingdom will commence. This momentous event will end the chaos upon the earth.

      Lord, come quickly, and may we be ready!

      Thanks as always!

  14. We are living in a time where the signs of the times are all around us, bible prophecy is being fulfilled so while others are fearful and have no hope as believers in God we have hope and we know that that grand day will come when Jesus our Lord and Saviour will come and put an end to these earthly kingdoms and their rulership. The word of God gives hope so let’s continue to stand upon the word of God. Because a better day is coming.

  15. I like your article, as it connects the current political states with the word of Jesus Christ.  Fitting verses as well.  The US government is ruined, and it needs to be connected back through faith,  Keep up the good work.  The quotes provide hope for our nation.  I do like the connection between the January 6th protests and the Biblical word.  

    1. For sure, Anshu, the US government, and those throughout the world need to be connected to God. It has become increasingly evident that man cannot govern himself.

      Thanks for commenting, Anshu!

  16. The careful consideration of different interpretations and perspectives on the Millennial Kingdom demonstrates a commitment to presenting a well-rounded view. This balanced approach encourages critical thinking and respectful dialogue among readers with diverse beliefs.

  20. As Christians and believers, we must always be ready for the second coming. It always starts from our own hearts. Let us all be open to unity in everyone, open to forgiving the faults of others. If there’s no oneness, there will always be chaos, as what is happening in our world today.

    Let us all spread the Good News. Every leader in the government must have Jesus in their hearts for true service, ” for the people. ” Let us vote for those whose hearts are full of love and peace.

    God bless,


    1. Amen, Marita, the world surely needs the heart of Jesus, especially our leaders (1 Timothy 2:1-3).
