1 Thessalonians 2:13 "For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe."

4. The Restitution of All Things - The Rest [the seventh day]


“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.”  [2 Peter 3:8]

 

Rooted in the creation week are days, with each day denoting “a thousand years”, and the aggregate of the seven days pointing to a seven-thousand-year period of measured time.

The first six days [or six millenniums] have been with man’s government!

The seventh day [The Millennium] will be with God’s “government”!

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” [Isaiah 9:6-7]

“And it shall come to pass in that day [The Millennium], saith the Lord,” [Micah 5:10],

What is coming to this world in the near future is directly related to WHO is coming to this world in the near future.      What men can see now … is not what men will see in that day.    Whenever we see in the Bible this statement: “And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord,” [Micah 5:10], be ready for the “sea change”.

What is a SEA CHANGE?

Now, imagine you are seeing a vast desert before you, and in a moment of time … in the twinkling of an eye … a vast sea appears before your eyes.  This transformation is known as a SEA CHANGE! [Sea change = a marked change: a radical transformation]

Here is the SEA CHANGE that is coming!  What a man sees now … will soon pass away.   And what no man sees now will soon appear before his naked eye.

Any man can now see the invisible things to come, by the Spirit of God, who will reveal these invisible things to come, if that man has been supernaturally “born again”, and given that supernatural sight to see those things, which will soon be made visible. [John 3:3, 16:13-14]

This supernatural spiritual sight will see into the mysteries of the “deep things of God”: “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:” [1 Corinthians 2:7].    The “deep things of God”, i.e., the Millennial Kingdom of Heaven are revealed by promise to the believer in Jesus Christ in verse nine and ten, [which see for this truth]: “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.  But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.” [1 Corinthians 2:9-10]

The really important thing to understand here is that things that are different … are things that are not the same.  This “present time” [this dispensation – the Church] is different from “the world to come”, i.e., the Millennium [a different dispensation].  Jesus Christ made this demarcation in the dispensations in the book of Luke in chapter eighteen: “Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.” [Luke 18:30]

“That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:” [Ephesians 1:10].

There is a new world coming, [“in the world to come”] and this new world is not to be confused with the renovation of this earth in the transition from measured time into eternity, which thing will occur after the one-thousand-year Kingdom of Heaven.

After the seventh Millennium is complete, there will be “the day of God”, when this earth will be totally “dissolved” by fire.

Now, note this; this all is according to the book of the Second Epistle of Peter.  The proof text is in chapter three, verses twelve and thirteen: “Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”  [2 Peter 3:12-13]   Now from the book of Revelation, we read: “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” [Revelation 21:1]

Remember this: two things that are different … are things that are not the same!

There is a new world coming [“in the world to come”] … a beautiful world, and it comes only when Jesus Christ comes to this world.

The “presence of God” will change everything.   It will be as the BOOK says it is:  “As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.” [Psalm 68:2]  This shows us that the “presence of God” will upset the apple cart of the whole earth.  Amen!  When the apple cart is flipped the effect is this: “The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.” [Psalm 68:8]

All the messengers of God [Haggai 1:13], all the prophets of God, and all the words of God are pointing to the most important event that will ever occur to this earth [ever since the creation].  This event is “the presence of God” in the millennial dispensation of a GOVERNMENT established by the SON of GOD JESUS CHRIST when every knee shall bow to HIM, as SCRIPTURE says it will happen, in the book of Isaiah: “I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.”

Here is one of the basic truths of life. 

Men will have to do with WHOM they will have to do.  “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.”  [Hebrews 4:13]

Heretofore, all the messengers of God, all the prophets of God, and all the words of God “cried out” [Zechariah 7:7, 13] the message of the Kingdom of Heaven [the 2nd Advent of Jesus Christ], in no uncertain terms, first to Israel, and then to all the world, to all men everywhere, by the time of the 1st Advent of Jesus Christ.

“And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” [Matthew 3:2]

“Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” [Matthew 5:3]

“And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.” [Matthew 8:11]

“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” [Matthew 16:19]

“And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” [Matthew 18:3]
