Rewards of the Millennial Kingdom
4. The Son of Man, Christ Jesus, will return with His overcomer believers to reign with a "rod of iron" (Rev. 2.27, 12.5, 19.15) "over the nations" (2.26) for 1000 years.
Do you believe the Son of Man, Christ Jesus, will return in Person to reign
with an "iron rod" with His overcomer believers (Rev. 2.27, 12.5, 19.15) "over
the nations" (2.26) for the last
1000 years (or a
great length of period) on earth in the time of recompense (Rev. 20.4) and
regeneration of the world (Matt. 19.28) before the new city on the new earth
commences? Do you believe Christ is not reigning with an iron rod today? Do you
believe the nations won't be deceived (Rev. 20.3) during the 1000 years, because
they will not war as they do now? Do you believe the kingdom of God is a deeper
inner knowing inside the believer that abides in Christ, for “the kingdom of God
is righteous and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Rom. 14.17)? Can you sense
the outward appearance of the kingdom of heaven with its boundaries in greater
Christendom that exists today of believers and those who appear to be saved but
are not? Is the conduct of Matt. 5-7 the conduct of the kingdom that is to be
kept unto rewards (see the 5 wise virgins, Matt. 25.1-12 and parable of the
talents, Luke 19.11-27)?
"And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations..they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years" (Rev. 2.26, 20.4). Do you agree not all Christians meet this condition? "The Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints [holy ones or myriads]. To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard [speeches] which ungodly sinners have spoken against him" (Jude 14,15).
