HOW WILL YOU BE SERVING JESUS IN HIS MILLENNIAL KINGDOM?

One of the parables Jesus told the disciples when they asked Him about “what shall be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the world?” (Matthew 24:3) was the Parable of the talents.

This parable demonstrates clearly that God expects us to be productive with the money He gives us in this life in accordance with the natural abilities He has given us.

Note both men who were successful, the one given five talents and the one given three talents, both receive the same commendation “Well done, good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a little, I will make you ruler over much: enter you into the joy of the lord.Matthew 25:21

Ninety percent of serving is just showing up, so being faithful means being available. One person that doesn’t show up is one person who won’t serve. That means more for someone else to do, so just showing up is essential to being a faithful servant. If you think what you are doing is insignificant, don’t miss the fact that Jesus said that if “You have been faithful over a little,” He “will set you over much,” so you might “Enter into the joy of your master” (Matt 25:21). Your faithfulness doesn’t depend on how little or how much you have, but on what you do with it. Are you faithful in showing up and in using what you have been given by God?

What you will be doing in Jesus’ Millennial Kingdom depends upon how faithful you are with what God has given you in this life.

I hope this gives you cause to consider what you are doing now and call on the Holy Spirit to help you get on track with the time you have left before Jesus returns, first to rapture His church and pour out His wrath upon the unrepentant, prior to setting up His transitional Millennial Kingdom on this earth.

Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.Revelation 20:6

ISRAEL IN THE MILLENNIUM

Jon Voight understands that Jeremiah, Ezekiel and many of the other O.T. prophets prophesied that God would restore Israel and that God’s people will once again produce wonderful wine, more so in the coming Millennial reign of Jesus Christ.

The following two Scriptures clearly outline the future of Israel with their Messiah, Jesus ruling and reigning over the nations of the world.

Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will take the people of Israel from the nations among which they have gone, and will gather them from all around, and bring them to their own land. And I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. And one king shall be king over them all, and they shall be no longer two nations, and no longer divided into two kingdoms. They shall not defile themselves anymore with their idols and their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions. But I will save them from all the backslidings in which they have sinned and will cleanse them, and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.Ezekiel 37:21-23

At that time, declares the Lord, I will be the God of all the clans of Israel, and they shall be my people... Again you shall plant vineyards on the mountains of Samaria; the planters shall plant and shall enjoy the fruit. For there shall be a day when watchmen will call in the hill country of Ephraim: ‘Arise and let us go up to Zion, to the Lord our God.’ For thus says the Lord: “Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob, and raise shouts for the chief of the nations; proclaim, give praise, and say, O Lord, save your people, the remnant of Israel.’ Jeremiah 31:1, 5-7

Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it in the coastlands far away; say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him and will keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock.’ For the Lord has ransomed Jacob and has redeemed him from hands too strong for him. They shall come and sing aloud on the height of Zion, and they shall be radiant over the goodness of the Lord, over the grain, the wine, and the oil, and over the young of the flock and the herd; their life shall be like a watered garden, and they shall languish no more.Jeremiah 31:10-12
