Plan to Bless You and All
taught us to pray, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth,
as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). Prophecies indicate this
kingdom is near at hand. We are at the threshold of the most
glorious epoch Earth has ever seen—the blessing of Christ’s
Millennial Kingdom! This will be the “Golden Age” mankind has
cherished in their hopes and aspirations since the dawn of history.
The results will be more wonderful, more glorious, more all
encompassing, than even the dreams of philosophers, poets and
sages. The best which noble men and women have dared imagine
will be surpassed by the wonders God has planned.
There will be world peace (Psalms 46:9).
All defects of humanity will be healed (Isaiah 35:5, 6).
Moral integrity will be planted in every heart (Jeremiah 31:33).
Sorrow, pain, tears and death itself will cease (Revelation
21:4; Isaiah 11:9).
Even the dead of past ages will be raised to life again (Acts
Salvations in God’s Kingdom
promised God's Kingdom nearly 2,000 years ago. Why the long
delay? The secret to understanding God’s ultimate plan is to
recognize that the Scriptures teach two salvations for mankind,
a Heavenly and an Earthly.
2,000 years of the Gospel age are for the selection and development
of a Heavenly Church class. This elect class is comprised of
those who in their present life dedicate themselves to be faithful
followers of Christ. Their life is one of total commitment to
serving our Heavenly Father supremely. If faithful, they are
promised a Heavenly reward (Matthew 5:3-12).
purpose of developing this “heavenly” class is so they as joint
heirs with Christ will as “priests” bless all the rest of earth’s
billions in the Earthly phase of God’s Kingdom (Revelation 20:6).
Note a few of the scriptures that refer to the Earthly phase
of God’s Kingdom.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as in heaven.
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as
the waters cover the sea.
Isaiah 26:9 When thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants
of the world will learn righteousness.
Isaiah 65:21 And they shall build houses,...and they shall plant
vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
Isaiah 65:25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,…They
shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the
Isaiah 35:1-6 NIV The desert and the parched land will...blossom
like the rose. The eyes of the blind shall be opened and the
ears of the deaf unstopped.
Ecclesiastes 1:4 The earth abideth for ever.
God’s Kingdom, the Heavenly Church class will have the privilege
of awakening from the sleep of death every man, woman and child
that has ever lived. Their awakening will be here on planet
Earth in the earthly phase of God’s Kingdom. Notice the scriptures
that show ALL mankind will be raised from death to life and
given an opportunity for earthly salvation.
1 Timothy 2:4
Who will have ALL men to be saved (from Adamic death by being
awakened), and to come unto the knowledge of the truth (in the
earthly phase of God’s Kingdom).
1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall ALL be made
Zephaniah 3:8, 9
Then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may
ALL call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.
RSV No longer shall each man teach his neighbor and each his
brother, saying, “Know the LORD,” for they shall ALL know me,
from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I
will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no
Acts 15:16,17 After this (the selection of the Church) I will
rebuild the tabernacle of David which is fallen down...that
the residue of men might seek after the Lord.
ALL mankind will gradually be awakened from the sleep of death.
Every help will be given them by the Heavenly Church class to
transform their characters into loving, obedient sons of God.
They will be instructed, guided and, yes, disciplined with a
loving hand as needed for the purpose of rehabilitation.
who change their characters and pass the final test will receive
everlasting, perfect earthly life. A life of happiness filled
with unending blessings (Isaiah 25:6-8)! What a prospect!
God Permitted Evil
the close of the 1000 year Millennial Kingdom mankind will look
back on their lives and fully understand why God permitted pain,
sorrow and death in this first life. They will realize it was
God’s wisdom and love that permitted this learning experience
as a lesson that will never be forgotten! God allowed mankind
to first experience the painful effects of disobedience caused
by father Adam’s sin. Then, as mankind has the contrast of the
blessings of peace, health and perfect life as a result of obedience
in God’s Kingdom, they will be able to appreciate those blessings
in a way they could never have done without the lesson of the
permission of evil.
Culmination of God’s Plan
culmination of God’s Plan for mankind is described beautifully
in Ephesians 1:9,10 (Barclay Translation). “He revealed to us
the secret of His will, and of the purpose which long ago He
had in Christ. This purpose is finally to bring to their conclusion
all events in history, and to make of all things, things in
heaven and things on earth, one perfect whole in Christ.” Yes,
all in the Heavenly and Earthly phases of God’s Kingdom will
recognize Christ as head and will go on to serve God eternally.
The promise of Revelation 21:4 will be fulfilled forever. “God
shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be
no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there
be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
