POST MILLENNIUM
Christianity Oasis Ministry has provided you with this Post Millennium study on Post Millennium verses. This post millennium Bible study on post millennium events looks at post millennium message and asks what does post millennium mean, when will post millennium events occur, what occurs in post millennium, why do the post millennium events occur, what is the post millennium message and how do the post millennium events affect Christians? Most Christians have heard about the post millennium period but know not the post millennium period events and many don't understand post millennium timing or the post millennium message. Let us seek within the Bible and find the truth of the post millennium events with post millennium message together in this post millennium Bible study, shall we?

 

POST MILLENNIUM

 Most people believe that when the seven years of  End Times are over that is it.

That is not TRUTH according to the Bible.

WHAT DOES POST MILLENNIUM MEAN AND WHAT EVENTS OCCUR POST MILLENNIUM?

If you read the Millennium study, you know that it is 1000 Years of Peace for God's chosen people.

It seems from what most express, that most people stopped reading the Book of Revelation after Chapter 19.

So, let us take a look at Chapters 20-22 ... Revelation, Chapter 20 picks up right after the years of Great Tribulation and the battle of Armageddon.

After the 1000 year period (Millennium) of peace, it's time for the ...

POST MILLENNIUM EVENTS

 This Post Millennium study looks into what the Bible says about the time period after the Millennium and before God creates the new Heaven and new earth.

Isaiah 65:17
For,
behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
 

 Just as He has said He would after the Millennium.
 

Revelation 21:1
And
I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
 

There are some pretty significant events that take place after the Millennium. 

Before we delve into what happens in the Post Millennium, let's go over the events that lead up to this interesting time period.  

The Seven years of the Tribulation during the End Times has passed.

Antichrist and the false prophet are in the lake of fire, forever.

Satan has been locked up and sealed in the bottomless pit (that's hell to you and me) for a thousand years.

This Brings forth a question to mind and heart ...

What happens to Satan after the 1000 years?

Don't for one minute believe that satan will be sitting like a good little boy in time out, thinking about what he has done for the last six thousand years, and comes out with a new attitude.

No way ladies and gentlemen. No pun intended, but there will be no IMProvement.

All joking aside now, did you know that satan is let out of the pit after the thousand years of the Millennium?   

Revelation 20:1-3
And I saw an Angel come down from Heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

Now, what do you think has gone on for the thousand years while the devil has been imprisoned? I want to enlighten you about something. Just because satan is in the bottomless pit, does NOT mean that there will be no evil in the world. Remember, we all inherit original sin when we're born, and though there is peace on the earth for the thousand years of the Millennium, mankind still has free will. 

Mankind will still be capable of sin ... he just won't have the power of satan enticing and seducing him into sin, but sin will still exist. I have to remind you, even the fallen Angels, who don't have original sin inherent in them, sinned. So mankind, of whom sin IS inherent in, will certainly sin, without satan's influence. Another thing to remember is that death and hell aren't cast into the lake of fire until Judgment Day, which means, peoples' souls can still go there, who choose the wrong path.

You may be under the impression that after the End Times, all will be pure and blissful, and everyone will be sinless, because after all, God does away will all the unbelievers, and cleanses the earth of them during the End Times and Armageddon ... and with satan locked up ... well, what could there be to worry about? I'm going to show you some TRUTH that reveals that many are mistaken by this train of thought.

Now, the Bible does say that those who are Raptured will be changed, from mortal to immortal: 

1 Corinthians 15:51-56
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last Trump: for the Trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

What does this mean? It means that when those who died in Christ, and those who are taken in the Raptures are changed from mortal to immortal, death is swallowed up ... in other words, this is the first resurrection, they are resurrected, and they are no longer 'dead'. Paul goes on to say that the sting of death is sin, so one may conclude that there is no more sin for them either. 

Paul also tells us another interesting thing:

1 Corinthians 13:9-12
For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Let's discern this beautiful scripture. I'll let Paul explain the first sentence in his own words:

1 Corinthians 8:2
And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.

But when that which is perfect ... JESUS ... arrives, our lack of knowledge will be done away with. Just like when you're a child, Paul goes on to say, you could only understand things that a child is capable of understanding, but when you become an adult, you understand more. Now picture a two way mirror, like they have in interrogation rooms that you see on television in police stations. If you're on the mirror side, you don't know what's on the other side, but from the other side, you know what's on both sides of the glass. As mortals, our knowledge is limited as well, but those who are changed from mortal to immortal will put away the understanding of a man, and understand all ... they will come out from behind the glass, and see (understand) everything.

HOWEVER

What about those who are left here on earth?

Those people left on earth will not have this perfect knowledge, they will still be mortal. And a thousand years is a long time. People will once again be fruitful and multiply and repopulate the earth, spreading out to the four quarters, and in time, those who choose, will once again stray from the will of God. Do you remember the story of the exodus and how the children of Israel soon forgot the wonders that God performed to free them from slavery in Egypt? Mankind will forget the wonders that God will perform during the End Times as well. Let me give you an example:

Zechariah 14:16-18
And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

  As you can see, people will become lackadaisical in their fear of the Lord and neglect the commandments of God. 

Let's look at more TRUTH, shall we?

Revelation 20:7-10
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the
Saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of Heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Okay, now remember at the beginning of our study, we found out that satan would be loosed for 'a little season.' How long is a little season? There is only one other scripture in the Bible that uses these exact words. 

Revelation 6:9-11
And when He had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

This 'little season' lasted from the 5th seal until the end of Armageddon, which is somewhere between 3 and 7 years. One can only speculate as to whether the little season that satan is loosed compares to this duration or not. One thing is for certain, it is long enough for satan to deceive the nations of the earth and gather them to battle around Jerusalem. Gog and Magog, who will have a history (in the future) of evildoing against Israel (Ezekiel 39:1-16), will once again be major players in the Post Millennium events, in fact, as you read above, of all the nations on earth only the devastation of these two merit mentioning by name in the Revelation by John. The prophecy of Ezekiel tells about the demise of Gog and Magog:

Ezekiel 38:1-7
And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

God says he will put hooks in the jaws of the leaders of the attack. What does that mean? As an unsuspecting fish, a hook in the jaw would be a surprise. 

Let me give you a little background before you read what God goes on to say through Ezekiel.  Since the Romans conquered Jerusalem more than 2,000 years ago, the Jewish people had been 'scattered' throughout the lands of the Gentiles, until 1967 when they took back control of Jerusalem. Even today, we know that the people of Israel do no live in 'peace' in the land that God promised to them. Now, back to the future ... living in the peace of the Millennium ... Ezekiel tells what will happen next: 

Ezekiel 38:8-13
After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee. Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought: And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

How do you know this is speaking of the Post Millennium time period? God's people dwell safely in unwalled villages, they are at rest, without walls, bars or gates. Wouldn't you say that describes peace? Suddenly ... 'thou shalt think an evil thought.' This is evidence that this is that 'little season' when satan is loosed. As we learned from Revelation earlier, satan will deceive and gather many against Israel. Ezekiel describes this as well:

Ezekiel 38:14-16
Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? And thou shalt come from thy place
out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

But God will be glorified in sight of all and everyone will know that He is God.

Ezekiel 38:17-20
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them? And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the Heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

God will be so angry when all this happens that even fish, birds, and even all creatures that are not human, will tremble along with all of mankind. Then Ezekiel also confirms that fire will rain down from Heaven and devour them.

Ezekiel 38:21-23
And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Do you suppose 'every sword shall be against his brother' might be a surprise, like a hook in the jaw? 

Psalms 9:15
The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

How about some more scripture explaining this same event?

Haggai 2:22
And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.

What does all this mean? This means that people will STILL fall for the devils old tricks, even after witnessing the End Times ... Jesus' return ... His awesome victory at Armageddon ... The Rapture of all the Saints ... Innumerable other wonders ... And a thousand years of peace on earth. Unbelievable? Nope, you just read it ... It's the TRUTH.

Zephaniah 3:8
Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

When the deceived surround the Holy City, fire will come down from Heaven and devour them ... just like what happened in Sodom and Gomorrah. 

THEN

Satan is thrown into the lake of fire, to be tormented forever.

POST MILLENNIUM PROPHECY REVEALS THAT POST MILLENNIUM EVENTS AND POST MILLENNIUM PROMISES WILL OCCUR AFTER THE MILLENNIUM
