Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 20:1-6 is about the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace.

When does the church of God enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace (the upcoming Paradise)?

  1. Revelation 19:20
    19:20. Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

    After the Antichrist and the false prophet reign over the world for three and a half years, they are cast into the hell forever, so the church of God can enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace.

    2 Thessalonians 2:1-8
    2:1. Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you,
    2:2. not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.
    2:3. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
    2:4. who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
    2:5. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?
    2:6. And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.
    2:7. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.
    2:8. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.


    The Antichrist or the mystery of lawlessness is already at work in the world vaguely, because there is something that restrains it, namely the church of God who has been redeemed and justified by the blood of Jesus as well as purified by the true teaching Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword (the Bride Tidings). If the church of God has become perfect, he will be evacuated to the wilderness with the two wings of a great eagle. At that moment, the Antichrist and the false prophet will be totally revealed in the world for three and a half years.

    The two possibilities when the Antichrists reigns over the world are as follows:

    • To the church of God who is left in the world. He is not evacuated to the wilderness. He cannot endure to face fight against the Antichrist, so he will surely deny Jesus and worship the Antichrist. He will not be tormented or massacred in the world, but he will be destroyed with the Antichrist when Jesus comes a second time. He will enter the feast of the slaughter up to perdition forever.

    • The church of God who has been redeemed, so he experiences the purification and the renewal of life by the sword of the true teaching Word, but his flesh has not fully been torn yet, especially disobedience and lie--the veil has not been torn yet--, so he experiences the persecution of the Antichrist.
      As long as man lies, he will surely become disobedient. He is against God, so he will enter the persecution of the Antichrist because he is left, and he is not evacuated to the wilderness. He does not deny Jesus. He does not worship the Antichrist although he is tormented up to being beheaded. He will be risen and saved by God when He comes a second time.

    Revelation 19:20
    19:20. Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

    2 Thessalonians 2:8
    2:8. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

    When Jesus comes a second time as the righteous Judge, He will consume the Antichrist with the breath of His mouth. Then, we will enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace.

  2. Revelation 20:1-3
    20:1. Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
    20:2. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;
    20:3. and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.


    The church of God can enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace after Satan is bound for a thousand years, so he cannot make the church of God fall into sins up to the peak. He cannot deceive the church of God with the false teachings.

  1. Revelation 19:9
    19:9. Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'"And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."

    The church of God can enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace when Jesus comes a second time in the glory of the Heavenly Bridegroom and the King of kings. At that moment the church of God is changed up to perfection. We become as glorious as Him. Jesus will lift up His church who is perfect on the glorious clouds. We enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God (the door of Paradise), the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace, and the New Jerusalem or the heavenly kingdom forever.

What is the atmosphere of the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace?
Matthew 6:9-13
6:9. "In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
6:10. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.
6:11. Give us this day our daily
bread.
6:12. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.
6:13. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

  1. The daily bread in the heavenly kingdom[Matthew 6:11].
    Before doing anything in the ministry, the food is important.

    The three kinds of food are as follows:

    • Eating fruits of all treesin the garden freely. Freely means in the anointing of Holy Spirit. The fruit refers to the Word in the General Service that gives the extra power to the church of God, so we can live in righteousness, and we are saved.

      Psalm 119:11
      119:11. Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You


    • The fruits of the knowledge of good and evil. It refers to the revelation of the Word of God by Holy Spirit in the Bible Study Service and Holy Communion. It will be ingrained in our life to give the knowledge of all good and evil or true and false things.

      Psalm 119:15-16
      119:15. I will meditate on Your precepts, And contemplate Your ways.
      119:16. I will delight myself in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word.


      Thus, we can do the good and true things. We produce the true and good words. We can be far away of evil, gossip, and lie, et cetera. We do not want to live in it. We can live in holiness, so we are used by God. We will be equipped with the ministry and Holy Spirit's gift to be used in the ministry of the building of the perfect body of Christ. It starts from marriage, shepherding, inter-shepherding, until the Israelites and the Gentiles become one perfect body.

    • The fruit of the tree of life. It refers to the Word that we receive in the Prayer Service. We can see Wondrous things from the Word of God. The Word of God changes us from the fleshly men to the spiritual ones like Jesus, so it becomes real, and we can live forever.

      Psalm 119:18
      119:18. Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law.

      Revelation 2:7
      2:7. "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God."'

      Being happy in praising but not in the preaching of the Word is not the true happiness. The Paradise bliss brings us to become happy in praising God, especially in hearing the Word of God.

  2. The atmosphere without Satanthe tempter, so all things become good.[Matthew 6:13].
    Lying means giving a chance to Satan to enter and destroy our life.

  3. The atmosphere without sinby confessing and forgiving one another [Matthew 6:12,14-15]. Do not sin anymore after being forgiven! We also forgive others' sin and forget it.

So, the atmosphere of Paradise or the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace is the one of renewal. We must become the servant of God who is shepherded well and correctly.

The last days must be the preparation to enter the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace. What must we do?

  1. We must use God's longsuffering to return to Him and repent. The fact of God's longsuffering is that He has not come for the second time yet and we still get the lengthening of our life.

    2 Peter 3:9-10
    3:9. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
    3:10. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.


    • We believe in Jesus and repent, namely we stop sinning and return to God. We are dead to sin.
    • We enter the true water baptism, namely one who has died to sin or repented must be buried in the water with Jesus and come out or rise from water with Him, so the heavens are opened. We are baptized in the name of Lord Jesus Christ.

    • We receive the heavenly life, namely Holy Spirit baptism, so we can live in righteousness. As a result, we are saved and blessed by God. We must live in righteousness no matter our job and duty. Thus, we can wait the New Jerusalem, namely a new heaven and a new earth.

    Proverbs 10:2-3
    10:2. Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, But righteousness delivers from death.
    10:3. The LORD will not allow the righteous soul to famish, But He casts away the desire of the wicked.


    2 Peter 3:13
    3:13. Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

    That is why, the most important thing is that we inherit the righteousness to our descendants, so all of us are saved and blessed by God.

  2. We must work out our own salvation by ministering and serving God with fear and trembling.

    Philippians 2:12-16
    2:12. Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvationwith fear and trembling;
    2:13. for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
    2:14. Do all things without complaining and disputing,
    2:15. that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
    2:16. holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.


    The salvation is the asset of God that we must work out.
    Working out the salvation with fear and trembling means that we must use Jesus' mind. Do not let the serpent's voice influences us!
    Having the fear of God means becoming obedient. We do not follow the fleshly mind that will stumble us make us stumble.

    The facts of working out the salvation are as follows:

    • We can minister to God without grumble and contending, but we always give thanks to God regardless of anything that happens

    • We willingly minister to God, not of necessity as well as not being forced or forcing. We minister to God because we love Him.

    • We willingly sacrifice. We sacrifice all things except the true teaching Word.

    • We minister to God in righteousness and holiness, so we may become blameless and harmless.

    Thus, we can shine as lights in the world that hold fast the true teaching Word or the one of life. The Word of life is the one that becomes our life experience. We will not fall, and we will not be deceived but we can testify about the Good News and the Bride Tidings.

    Matthew 24:14
    24:14. "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

    Let us minister to God faithfully and earnestly until we shine as lights [Philippians 2:12-16] before the Antichrist reigns over the world. We will be lifted up on the glorious clouds when Jesus comes a second time. We are with Him forever.

  3. We must worship God in an hour prayer, fasting prayer, and all night prayer, so we experience the tearing of the flesh with all of its lusts and emotions.

    Revelation 11:1-2
    11:1. Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, "Rise and measurethe temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there.
    11:2. "But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months.


    Our worship will be measured.
    If our worship has not fulfilled the measurement yet, we will be tormented or trampled by the Antichrist. The worship will be measured with a rod or the shepherding Word. The measurement is that the flesh does not speak anymore--the veil is torn.
    The flesh does not speak anymore. It means that there are no more emotion and disobedience.
    For example, Jesus follows the will of the Father in Gethsemane.

    Revelation 11:19
    11:19. Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.

    If our worship fulfills the measurement, God will show the ark of covenant. It means that God gives the secret of the bride of God.
    The mercy seat which is made of gold refers to the Heavenly Bridegroom.
    The ark which is made of shittim wood overlaid with gold refers to the heavenly bride.

    The heavenly bride or the body of Christ consists of the parts as follows:

    • Revelation 12:1,14
      12:1. Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.
      12:14. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.


      The first part is those who live in Jesus until He comes a second time, and they become perfect. They will be evacuated to the wilderness with the power of the two wings of a great eagle, far from the eyes of the Antichrist who will reign over the world for three and a half years.

    • Revelation 19:9
      19:9. Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'"And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."

      The second part is those who have died in the Lord. They are not evacuated, but they will be resurrected in the body of glory when Jesus comes a second time.

    Both of them will become one perfect body of Christ who is as glorious and perfect as God. There is no more the sinful flesh, but the glorious and perfect body like the one of Jesus when He was risen and ascended to heaven.

    That is why we must worship God from now on. We put Jesus as the Head forever. We are not separated anymore. The fact is having no more anxiety about daily life, future, death, and Jesus' second coming.

    Matthew 6:31-34
    6:31. "Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'
    6:32. "For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
    6:33. "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
    6:34. "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.


    Without anxiety, we can minister to God faithfully and fervently. We can become obedient until the flesh does not speak anymore. We cry out and glorify the name of Jesus. We trust and crying cry to God.

    The facts and the examples are as follows:

    • Peter. It He is the image of a man who is fearful in facing the winds and waves in the ocean of the world.
      It means doubting the teaching Word because of the winds, namely temptation and false teaching that makes us doubt the power of God.

      Matthew 14:29-32
      14:29. So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
      14:30. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"
      14:31. And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
      14:32. And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.


      The consequence is beginning to sink. It means that one starts becoming untrue and unholy, so he does not minister to God faithfully and fervently. Beginning to sink also means the physical and spiritual decadences. If there is no more anxiety, God will restore us.

    • A woman of Canaan. It is the image of a woman who is worried about marriage and children. The anxiety makes one cannot lick the crumbs of the Word, but vomit. It means lying, gossiping, and slandering.
      Consequently, Satan destroys the marriage and children.

      Matthew 15:21-
      26
      15:21. Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
      15:22. And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed."
      15:23. But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, "Send her away, for she cries out after us."
      15:24. But He answered and said, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
      15:25. Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, help me!"
      15:26. But He answered and said, "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs."


      We can be lifted up in the worship. We, as God's sheep, can lick the Word. The marriage and children can be helped. We can be shepherded well and correctly. We are happy until we can say: 'I shall not want'.

      The youth is often worry worried about the future, so he becomes arrogant and disobedient. Actually, he is being degraded as well as fails and totally fails. If it continues, he will be destroyed.

      1 Peter 5:5-6
      5:5. Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble."
      5:6. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,


      If we cry and lift our hand up to God, He will lift us up. He gives the beautiful and successful future.

      All things will be changed and lifted up on the glorious clouds when Jesus comes a second time. We cheer to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God, the One-Thousand-Year Kingdom of Peace, and the New Jerusalem forever.

God blesses us.
