Summary: Have you ever thought about who the people will be and where do they come from that populates the earth during the 1000 year reign of King Jesus? Some of you have I'm sure but there's others that have never considered it one way or another, so today
Matthew 25:31-46 #5 ~ PROPHCEY ~PEOPLE BORN IN THE KINGDOM~ 7-16-11
Today Lord willing we'll continue our thought to do with prophecy, let me remind us that both Matthew 24:& 25: are prophetic chapters.
Have you ever thought about who the people will be and where do they come from that populates the earth during the 1000 year reign of King Jesus? Some of you have I'm sure but there's others that have never considered it one way or another, so today Lord willing I want to talk for a few minutes on who these people will be according to the word of God, some time back I talked a little on this subject.
It seems that there are people that have some kind of notion that being saved is some sort of hum drum state to be in and that it amounts too some thing like floating around out in space some where twanging on a harp, they don't realize that there's going to be much to do and enjoy, our little span here on this earth is nothing more than a dressing room, we’re preparing in this short life for life eternal.
You've heard me say many times that what we do for Jesus here on this earth before the rapture would have a big bearing on what He will allow us to do for Him yonder on the other side of the rapture, in other words our stewardship after we're saved may very well depend on the activities we'll be involved in at that time, I suppose one explanation might be sorter like a person that’s in the military, if you do what is expected of you you'll be promoted.
Jesus said in a parable to do with faithful stewards in
Luke 19: 16_17 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. 17And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
In this parable we find a picture of the Lord Jesus going back too the Father after His rejection and crucifixion and leaving His workers to work for Him until He returns, and at the judgment seat of Christ He will reward them according to how they did concerning His business. And the business of Jesus is saving souls.
Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
• The 1st recorded words of Jesus are found in
Luke 2:49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business? This implies that the Fathers business is too redeem the fallen human race.
And His last recorded words before He gave up the Ghost are found in
John 19:30--- It is finished:----
So Jesus made and finished the way for people to be saved, and now you and I are too tell others about what He accomplished.
I've said all that too point out that depending on what we do now at this time will determine where He will allow us to rule and reigned with Him in His Kingdom.
Among the occupants that will be on the earth when Christ reigns during the 1000 year Kingdom will be the New Testament church, that's you and I that are saved.
According to the scriptures we will be "kings and priest" during the Millennium,
