The Millennium: Discussion between Dave & Miles [WLC Radio, Ep. #69] | Part A

The King James Version (KJV) is mostly used in these lessons. Click here to access the KJV online.

Dave: Well, your experience of waiting, and working, and waiting, and saving, and waiting some more to achieve your heart’s desire is quite like the Christian’s longing and anticipation to see the Saviour’s return.

The Bible has prophecies of the Saviour’s first coming. There are also prophecies of events leading up to his return—which, quite frankly, frighten most people—but the end goal, the longing of every believer, the hope that has strengthened martyrs, has been the yearning for when it is all over. Yahuwah has won, Satan has lost, and now joy can reign.

Miles: It’s the hope of an eternal life of happiness that, yeah, we’re all looking forward to.

Dave: On our website, as well as our radio programs, we talk a lot about prophecy: how it’s Yahuwah’s gift to the final generation, so no one needs to be caught unawares. What Satan’s delusions will be, that sort of thing.

But today, I want to talk about something we don’t hear very much about, even though it’s what we’re all looking forward to, and that is what happens after Yahushua comes.

Miles: Well, that would be the millennium, wouldn’t it?

Dave: Yes. It’s a very special time period and, interestingly enough, it is set off by two different, and distinct resurrections.

If you’ve got your Bible, would you turn over to John chapter five. Again, Scripture reveals that there will be two resurrections: one at the beginning of the millennium; the other, at its close.
Dave: John 5, verses 28 and 29.

Miles: “For the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear His voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.”

Dave: Everyone who has died loving Yahuwah will have a part in the first resurrection.

Miles: What about people who have never had the chance to learn about Yahushua and salvation but were good people?
Dave: Yes, this resurrection would include them. Even if they’ve never had an opportunity to hear the name of Yahushua, but if they have responded to the drawing of Yah’s spirit in nature, if they’ve lived up to all the light they had and it was in their hearts to want to do right, they will also be resurrected in the first resurrection.
The choices they’ve made have revealed what they would do if they had the chance to know more truth, so they, too, will be resurrected when Yahushua returns.

Now. Revelation 19 speaks of the coming of Yahushua.

Miles: Oh, that’s right. Isn’t that where we get the description of Yahushua as on a white horse? Then it says, “And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.”

Dave: Right. And the chapter ends with the defeat of the beast and his army. So Revelation 20, then, describes what happens next. Would you start reading, please, at verse 1?

It’s going to talk about the millennium here, and the two resurrections.

Miles: Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. [Revelation 20:1-3]

Dave: We learn here that Satan is “bound” for a thousand years. Anyone who has not yet made a full surrender; who has been deceived by Satan, will get the chance to know the truth for themselves. That’s what it means when it says that “he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished.”

Miles: That’s a very interesting distinction. Because, obviously, Yah’s people, the redeemed wouldn’t be deceived.

Dave: Right. The only ones who could be deceived during the millennium are those who’ve not yet had a chance to know truth.
Now, John’s going to explain what the righteous will be doing during the millennium.

Miles: And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Yahushua and for the word of Yah, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. [Revelation 20:4a]

Dave: I’m going to interrupt for just a moment here. Right here we see that, in the days ahead, there will be martyrs for the truth. I know some people insist that there won’t be, but John spells out that some people will be killed, and they’ll be martyred precisely because they refused to worship the beast or his image. They rejected his mark. The mark of the beast has not yet been enforced. So, we can know that these deaths are yet future. Okay, go on.
