The 1000 year empire is a much discussed, but especially misunderstood item. Do you know why? The answer is so simple. The people don't believe God, that's the whole cause. The starting point is and remains: GOD DOES NOT LIE, NEVER! So if God says it will take 1000 years, then it will take a thousand years and not a day shorter or longer. No, a thousand years is a thousand years.

What happens before the Millennium begins?

There are two texts I want to quote, just texts that are in the bible. One piece of advice: Read Isaiah 24 in its entirety and if you don't understand. Then I want to explain it to you, but first these two texts:

Isaiah 24:5-6  'The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. ' 

Micah 1:2-4  'Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein is: and let the Lord GOD be witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple. For, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth. And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place. '

EXPLANATION: In the end – so before April 3, 2026 – God will completely destroy everything that lives on the earth – i.e. walks, swims, crawls, flies, grows and blooms. Yes, including all living people. The mountains will melt, the valleys will split, so the whole face of the earth will change. Nothing will be recognizable anymore, not a single building will survive, not a stone will be found.

But you know, God is Love. All whom He will now destroy will one day – after billions of years – be taken back into His Kingdom in all Divine Love. The earthly body is now destroyed, but the spirit cannot be destroyed. Everything that emanates from Him has a life without end. The spirit of God will someday return to Him, but it requires that the soul of its free will radiate FIRST LOVE.

Love God above all and your neighbor as yourself.

Isaiah 24:22   'And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. 

The transformation of the earth

Shortly before the flood, the earth tilted and all life was destroyed, but in such a way that the same life would continue again. The entire flora and fauna has been preserved, human life has been destroyed except for 8 people. Noah and his sons, along with their husbands, were allowed to be the first inhabitants of the new generation. So water has less destructive power than fire.

Fire – the inside of the earth comes out and the outside in – now destroys everything. But after a literal cooling-off period, the Most High will make everything grow and bloom again. In a completely different way than what we are used to now.

The first inhabitants of the 1000 year empire on April 3, 2026

First of all, of course, the announcement that the Gregorian year calculation will no longer apply. Jesus Himself is in charge from then on during these 1000 years and no doubt He will keep track of and organize everything. He is in charge. Note: He is in charge, and that is something completely different from the rule we are used to now. It is love that will reign and that cannot be compared to an aura of power. Love God above all and your neighbor as yourself.

Revelation 12:6  'And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. ' 

1 Thessalonians 4:13-17  'But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. ' 

Ezekiel 12:15-16  'They will know that I am the Lord when I disperse them among the nations and scatter them among the countries. But I will spare a few of them from the sword (WWIII), famine (starvation), and plague (Covid19), so that among the nations where they go they can tell about all their detestable practices. Then they will know that I am the Lord .” '

EXPLANATION: It sounds strange to many, but there will be two groups.

  1. A group of people who will still be in the flesh, so with a body of flesh and blood. This group will - just like the sons of Noah - provide a new offspring. They will live and die no more, their life will know a great old age, as is also described in the bible of the people from the time of Enoch.
  2. The martyrs of the previous generation (the period from 8 to 8,000,000,000 persons) who were allowed to experience the rebellion shortly before the moment when God destroyed everything and are absorbed in an indivisible moment, along with the few men who were left, these persons come all back in a spirit body.

1 Corinthians 15:51-52  '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. '

The Fauna and the Flora change completely

Isaiah 11:6-9  'The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD , as the waters cover the sea. '

The Free Will, also in the 1000 year empire

Despite the fact that there is no mention of FREE WILL anywhere, free will is the most important thing that is meant in the bible. No man of God has ever been compelled to serve as a servant of the Most High. Also the commandment Love God above all and your neighbor as yourself, is a commandment without compulsion. You can choose who you want to love above all else, you can choose from: God, Yourself, your Neighbor, the Bad or the Good. There is no one to determine for you which choice you will make. It is true that your choice has consequences.

You are free to choose to steal a car. Even if you are more or less "forced" by someone you know, it does not exonerate you from this act. If you get caught, you will have to face the consequences. In the real world, the chance of being caught is often considered small and that people want to take this risk.

The chance of being caught is 100% in the mental sense. There is One who knows All, that One is the Judge, a most just and loving Judge.

Revelation 18:7-8  'How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. '

EXPLANATION: Very many people have a great deal of SELF LOVE, so that is the same as self-glorification. The love of the Most High has cooled, He must then take the first step to please man. Though this is a QUOTE: Psalm 118:6 'The LORD is with me, I am not afraid. What can a man do to me? ' is from the bible, this does NOT testify about the First Love. One makes the assumption that the Lord will take care of you anyway.

David, the psalmist, begins with a hymn that expresses admiration and respect and exhorts others to do the same. He bears witness out of love and cheerfully tells everyone that God is love. This is showing the FIRST LOVE.

Psalm 118:1-6  'O give thanks unto the LORD ; for he is good: Because his mercy endureth for ever. Let Israel now say, That his mercy endureth for ever. Let the house of Aaron now say, That his mercy endureth for ever. Let them now that fear the LORD say, That his mercy endureth for ever. I called upon the LORD in distress: The LORD answered me, and set me in a large place. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: What can man do unto me? ' 

Revelation 2:2-4  'I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: and hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. '

EXPLANATION: You can do so much with your faith, you can draw any conclusion. You may even find that the preacher is lying, but if you are NOT willing to step out of your comfort zone - if you continue to follow it anyway - then you are NOT IN LOVE FIRST.

Conclusion: Only if you freely choose to serve the Most High - you do that by always putting Him first - in humility, then He will reward you. Are you willing to tell everyone how great the Almighty is? Are you - me too - willing to esteem the other higher than yourself and God above all? Jesus showed it to us! He has always honored God and He has always gone down the drain, even to death.

The second or even the third death is NOT forever and ever!

Job 33:28-30 He hath redeemed my soul from going into the pit, And my life shall behold the light. Lo, all these things doth God work, Twice, yea thrice, with a man, To bring back his soul from the pit, That he may be enlightened with the light of the living.
EXPLANATION: You read that two or three times man is resurrected to human life from the second or third death. Spiritually dead is not dead, but far removed from God.

Free Will and the End of the 1000 Years Reich

Also in the 1000 year period man will have to choose freely for or against the Supreme and as it is described, also in this period a lot of people will choose for satan. This despite the paradisiacal situation in which man lives, they are again tempted with the desire to want to be equal to God. They leave the First Love and again choose self-aggrandizement.

Revelation 20:8-10  '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. ' 

The Greek word “aionion,” usually translated “eternal,” does not necessarily mean “eternal.” It specifically refers to an "age" or an "eon", a specific period of time. However, it is a period that we as humans - billions of years - cannot oversee.

Isaiah 24:22  'And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days** shall they be visited. ' ' 2 Peter 3:8  **'But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 

God is LOVE, can you reconcile this - And they will be tormented day and night for all eternity - with God's love? Isaiah 24:22 reflects God's love, it will take a long time - billions of years perhaps, but in the end EVERYONE will choose again from Free Will and submit in gratitude and joy to the LOVE of the Most High. You know, if you will submit from the FIRST LOVE, you will see how immense the eternal freedom will be.

1 Corinthians 15:22-26 'For as in Adam ALL die, even so in Christ shall ALL be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the Firstling; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. '

1 Corinthians 3:11-15  'For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. '
