On the 7th Day...

Scriptures: Genesis 1; 2 Peter 3 v 6-9; John 17 v 1-5; Hebrews 4 v 3-4; Revelations 20 v 1-6.

God created everything we know and see around us in 6 days. That was the 6 days before Adam and Eve were formed. And on the 7th day God rested. God ceased all activity and established that 7th day for Israel to cease all work and spend that day in worship of God.

When Christians are born again they enter into a period of rest in Spirit which means they freely worship God every day. We are spiritually resting in Jesus Christ all the time. Physically and in our souls we continue to live and work but our spirits are seated in Christ in heavenly places. Jesus is in our hearts changing us into His likeness.
We are waiting for the 7th millenium which is also known as the 1000 years of peace. The same formula is applied - 1000 years equals 1 day.

In John it says that the works were finished from the creation of the world. The Lamb was slain from the creation of the world (Rev 13v8). This time span on earth time is a slow motion action replay of the events that happened in the 6 Days from the fall of Satan to the Creation of Genesis 1. We have already lived the 6000 years and are waiting for it to end.

The 1000 years of peace are for believers only. It is when the Bridegroom reunites with His Bride in Jerusalem and all the issues are resolved. There will be no death, disease, poverty or divorce. There will be no wars, no demons, no famine, no theft or corruption.

There will be no governments for the Lamb of God is King of Kings. He will be our only King forever. There will be love, peace and perfect harmony. The lion will lie down with the lamb. Plants will no longer be poisonous, there will be no drugs like cocaine, heroin, crystal meth, dagga or opium. The only drinks will be pure crystal clear water and the new wine.

Insects will not bite or sting, and mosquitoes will not whine; flies will not infect with germs. There will be no germs, no corruption no heart attacks or HIV AIDS in the 1000 years of peace.

The seas and rivers, lakes and streams will be free of all impurities. Fish will resume their proper breeding and the oceans will teem with fish.

The air we breathe will be fresh and smoke free for all to enjoy.

Everyone will work for the same salary. The Lamb will own everything. We will live under a theocracy the best form of government. We will be one people under Jesus. There will be no separate nations. 

Sport will be enjoyed without the need of competition. There will be no vying for supremacy and hooliganism will not exist.  Any mentally, emotionally or physically challenged believer will be made whole. In fact every awful thing Satan did to us in the Six Days will be wiped out as if it never happened.

We will live like kings on the Earth till the 1000 years are over. A time of living in Eden before mankind fell. There will be no sin of any kind at this time, no alcohol, no cigarettes, no cursing, no witchcraft, sorcery or satanism. No lies or deceit or fraud. Everyone will love and trust each other. Our dead family members will be alive with us on Earth. So there will be no tears, sorrow or mourning.

What a wonderful life it will be. 

A life without weapons, guns, knives, cannons or tanks. No army or navy or airforce. No nuclear threat, no fear of kidnapping, hijacking or rape. No need for high walls or electric fences. There will be no fear of anything ever again.

It will be perfect as God made it before satan destroyed everything.

Prayer: Father God we yearn for these halcyon days in which we will rebuild the waste places together with Jesus. It is up to us to show those on the outside what they will be missing. Help us O Lord to do Your will. In Jesus' name. Amen.
