  • 1. Kingdom Secrets The Millennium Reign: Facts of the Matter “All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee….For the kingdom is the LORD’S: and He is the governor among the nations” (Psalm 22:27-28)As far as God is concerned, the whole earth is just one kingdom. Therefore, God’s eternalcounsel was not to be King only over one physical country called Israel (they will have their ownmaterial prince) but to be King of kings over an Israel of nations. This explains why His throne issurrounded by a rainbow! (Rev.4:3 ref. Rev. 5:9)In Heaven, God sits in the centre, then follows the four beasts, then the seven angels, then thetwenty-four elders; as the hierarchy of authority spreads out. All of them report to and act fromGod’s counsel. Similarly, it is the wisdom of heaven that all who bear rule in every nation,during the millennium reign, take their authority and guidance from God. That way, Godremains Governor among the nations. Hence, any country or dominion not covered by thefavour of the Commonwealth of Israel, will be exposed to great calamities, drought and generalvexations, until such a time that such country bows the will of the LORD God of Israel.As the LORD God of Israel is the true God, and we are His people, it has always been the willand delight of heaven that we worship no other but Him. Herein is our peace guaranteed!Herein lies the felicity of the Millennium Reign!However, a few questions continue to bug our imagination as we prepare for the inaugurationof the Millennium Kingdom, viz: where will it happen? When will it take place? How will it takeplace? Let’s examine these briefly:Jesus Christ in Matthew 13:41 & 43 said, “The Son of Man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity…then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father, who hath ears to hear, let him hear”Sit back and ask yourself, was Jesus at this point referring to the saints going heaven? Are thereconditions, objects, policies, and people that can cause offense to the saints in heaven? Are
  • 2. there those that do iniquity in heaven that Christ needs to remove? Or was Christ here talkingabout the revival, reformation, leadership re-orientation, leadership overhaul, cleansings andrestorations that need to take place for the Millennium Reign to achieve worldwidedimensions?From available evidence, the Millennium Reign will take place on earth. For instance Daniel 7:27submits, “And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him”You will agree that “under the whole heaven” refers to the earth. And of course, by now, whothe Most High is, is no longer a matter of dispute. He is the God of the Millennium Reign; theOne every country or dominion shall serve, obey and worship: Jesus Christ of Nazareth – theLion of the tribe of Judah and the Root of David (Rev. 5:5)Again, Daniel 2:44 says, “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever”From the above scripture, key issues stand out: a. These kings and their kingdoms are not in heaven but on earth. So their breaking up happens here! And their replacement is here! b. God already has His eternal heavenly kingdom and does not need to SET UP one there again. Therefore, the one to be set up is on earth. c. If you compare verses 34 & 35 with verse 44, you will see that the Millennium Kingdom started with, and as a small stone but in continuously consuming the previous kingdoms, it became a great mountain. This is an earthly scenario because in heaven everything is already settled. Moreover, God’s heavenly Kingdom has no competition! d. Verse 45 says that the small stone was cut from the Mountain. This not only means that the heavenly Mountain is already established but also that the small stone has the nature of the parent mountain, is bringing with it the realities of the mountain and has a mandate to reproduce the Mountain on earth because it can be nothing but the mountain – it can give nothing but the mountain.
  • 3. So far, humanity has done well, but there is enough room for heaven on earth; and it is onlyheaven-inspired kings, administrators, ministers, and stewards that can bring heaven to earth.Our LORD is the God of dispensations, and the setting up of the Millennial Kingdom is thetrigger to the next dispensation. However, if we think we can delay Him, then we risk losing Hisfavour. Whenever God leaves a house, it becomes desolate but He stays with us if wecontinuously move along with Him. Therefore, the true small stone, as originally conceived byGod, has to be quickly set up in Jerusalem lest God withdraws His favour from present rulers,bishops, princes, and lords. And we know that if God withdraws His favour, only great troublesand vexations of the soul will be left for this class worldwide. Yet what has been decreed shallbe established.Let’s go back to the location of the Millennium Reign. The Four Beasts and Twenty-four Elders,in praising the Root of David for receiving and unveiling the Secrets of His Kingdom, and byextension, the kingdom, proclaimed: “…thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth” (Rev.5:9-10)Again, the location is the earth. Also we can see from the above that the establishment of themillennial kingdom will culminate in the resurrection – metaphorically and literally. The elders,saints and martyrs of yesteryears have been waiting for this. This agrees with Daniel 12:2 &13 “And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt…But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shall rest, and stand in THY LOT at the end of the days”Therefore the resurrection means being born again, an awakening and enlightenment of thespirit or being physically brought back from the dead. We can compare this with John 5:25, 28&29, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live… Marvel not at this: 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
  • 4. resurrection of damnation”Going forward, the Millennium Reign shall commence after Lucifer is bound and sealed up inhell for a thousand years (Rev.20:1-4). Even from this passage, we can see that the angel thatwill bind up Satan descended from heaven to earth. So the location of the Millennium Reign iscertainly the earth! Note also that it was not Jesus Christ that descended but one of Hisservants – an angel. Note also that the saints are on thrones because Judgment is given in theirfavour (Rev.20:4 ref. Daniel 7:22)With respect to the location of the Prime Dominion of the coming dispensation, whether JesusChrist is coming down in person to rule from Jerusalem or to rule through the restored Houseof David, is immaterial, because in both instances, He is the One in charge; He remains the rulerbecause the spirit and power behind a throne is the real ruler. Moreover, to rule with Christ canbe interpreted in two senses: the first sense is literal, that is, an actual situation where thesaints co-rule with Him. The other sense means the application of Jesus Christ in governance,arts, culture, entertainment, education, business, and politics. In both senses, the saints aresaid to rule with Christ. From scriptural evidence, the physical running of the millennial kingdomwill be done by humans, and by divine fiat the Prime Dominion will be resident in the House ofDavid. Take a look at these: “In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them” (Zechariah 12:8) “And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem” (Micah 4:8)This is what the Heaven wants, and this is what we have – God’s wisdom!How do I know that the House of David shall be restored?We are bold to speak because we know the Bible is God speaking to humanity. For instanceJeremiah spoke of the eternal line of kingship that God has given to David. “For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of Israel…For I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them” (Jeremiah 33:17 &26).
  • 5. Expanding on the foregoing, God further decrees “In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up the ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old” (Amos 9:11)God also speaks of a time when the House of David will act for God: “In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them” (Zechariah 12:8)It also declares that when there shall be national Jewish repentance and hunger for JesusChrist, the House of David shall also weep for Him! “And THE LAND shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart” (Zechariah 12:12)Therefore shall the House of David and his people obtain grace and pardon from the sin ofidolatry and every form of unrighteousness. “In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM for sin and for uncleanness “(Zech.13:1)These angels, those that are sent by Christ to cleanse the earth and reform the church, as wellas the one sent to bind up Satan and set up the millennium kingdom; all are humansempowered by the Spirit of God, to preach righteousness, cause revival and set things in order.Recall the epistles sent to angels of the churches? (Rev.2:1,8,12,etc)Therefore, be prepared for glory! Join the train! See, Rahab got herself into Israel by helpingGod’s plan come alive. That was faith in action! There is a certainty about what God isdetermined to do in this generation, do you want a part in it? You can change your destiny bykeying in.Shalom!Yours ever,Michael Nkanyi Uyeh.
