"The nursing child play by the cobra's hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper's den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the water covers the sea." - Isaiah 11 V8, 9
"Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him for a thousand years." - Revelation 20 V6
The rule of Jesus Christ upon this earth will last for a thousand year period and during this time there will be total peace upon the earth. Those who trusted Christ as Lord and Saviour now will rule and reign with Him then. They will be the priests of Christ and will serve Christ in a new body which will be given to them at the first resurrection. We are only required to believe with a child like faith in Jesus and receive Him as Lord and Saviour of our life. The first death is the separation of the soul from the body. The soul of the believer goes to be with the Lord but at the first resurrection will be reunited with a new body. The second death is the eternal separation of the unbelievers from God. People without Christ will experience the second death and there is no return nor hope for these people. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Praise God!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
