After The Kingdom Of God On Earth, Then What?
By Leo Holley
More and more each and every day there are more Planets being discovered in the Universe and the question has come up, what dose it matter? If there is a God and He is all powerful as He is presented, then why would He continue to create or why do we continue to find Planets that could be suitable for population?
There is a division of Christians on what is believed about Gods Kingdom, some believe it will be established in Heaven and some believe that it will be here on this Earth for 1000 years. For those who believe the latter, what future do they see after the 1000 years is complete? I believe this deserves an answer.
As I stated at the beginning of this article there are millions of Planets that are like Earth and could sustain life for humans. But why are they their. Why are they just setting their with a Sun and a Moon just as we have here? The reason may be a surprise to many.
Let us start at the return of Jesus Christ. When He does return only those who have been called and Chosen, which will include those alive and those dead, will be changed, given a new heavenly body. Both dead and alive will meet Jesus in the air. If those go to Heaven for a short time for the Marriage of the Lamb, I do not know. But I do know they will return to Earth and the 1000 years of reign will begin.
Those who are His Elect and who have been changed at His coming will be under King David and will help in ruling in the Kingdom of God as King and Priests.
7.After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.
2. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea:
3. “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.
4. Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.
From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed,
from the tribe of Reuben 12,000,
from the tribe of Gad 12,000,
6 from the tribe of Asher 12,000,
from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000,
from the tribe of Manasseh 12,000,
7 from the tribe of Simeon 12,000,
from the tribe of Levi 12,000,
from the tribe of Issachar 12,000,
8 from the tribe of Zebulun 12,000,
from the tribe of Joseph 12,000,
from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000.
I do not believe that there is any doubt that David, Moses, Abraham, Issac, Jacob and many more from the Old Testament would not be in Gods Kingdom and with this said, I see those as have already been Sealed and will be included in the 144,000.
The rest of the 144,000 are those who are chosen in our time, how ever many there is. Those will be King and Priests in Gods Kingdom. Now as time continues in the 1000 years there will be physical beings, those who are not yet of Gods Spirit family. They will live as they are today, only in a utopian environment. A earth that will not have been like the mind or the way of man has ever seen.
People will be living with their families, under Gods rule, in homes and will have jobs as they do now. Those who have been change to a spirit essence can also live as a physical being. How else could the be seen? They will be able to do as Christ, change at will.
This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem:
2 . In the last days
the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established
as the highest of the mountains;
it will be exalted above the hills,
and all nations will stream to it.
3. Many peoples will come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the temple of the God of Jacob.
He will teach us his ways,
so that we may walk in his paths.”
The law will go out from Zion,
the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4 . He will judge between the nations
and will settle disputes for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
nor will they train for war anymore.
5. Come, descendants of Jacob,
let us walk in the light of the Lord.
This shows that Physical people will be in the Kingdom of God.
But the question was, what happens after the 1000 years is finished?
Notice this very important statement:
18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
19. For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.
20. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope
21. that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.
22. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
Yes, the Creation, the Universe is waiting for Gods Sons to be Changed and after the 1000 years is over the real work begins. A whole new Creation process. God want to Populate the Planets in the Universe, that is the future we have to look forward to. A continual creation, forever. What an awesome God we have.
