The Millennium Chronicles, a new book by Douglas Hamp: When Lucifer and his minions have regained their freedom after Yeshua’s thousand-year reign and are enticing the Adamites to rebel, Ben and Kristiana are forced to decide—will they remain loyal to Yeshua and His kingdom or will they believe Lucifer and side with him? Too young to remember the horrific battles of the former age, their quest for information becomes a virtual journey through the Chronicles of the Court, where they learn the truth about the apex of Lucifer’s former reign, known as the “time of trouble.” In a race against time before their protective shield is removed and their fate is sealed, they urgently seek in the Chronicles the Key they need to enter the New Jerusalem and gain immortality. www.douglashamp.com www.themillenniumchronicles.com

JRR Tolkien + CS Lewis x Correct Bible Eschatology = The Millennium Chronicles, By facelikethesun (CA, USA) –

“If JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis got together and worked out accurate Bible eschatology and produced a fantasy fiction, this would be it!

“The Millennium Chronicles: Road to the Final Rebellion” taps into all five (maybe six?) senses and paints a picture of the dramatic events that will ensue at the end of the 1000 year reign of Christ on earth. For the Bible believing Christian, this is an important book to remind us of what the saga of life and mankind is all about. For the skeptic or non-believer, you will gain a better understanding of proper Bible Prophecy and be heavily entertained along the way.

Douglas Hamp has achieved what many authors only dream of…accurate research presented in fascinating storytelling.”

-Gonz Shimura (Director of AGE OF DECEIT: Fallen Angels and the New World Order)

The Millennium Chronicles: Road to the Final Rebellion, by Berean (Texas) –

“Doug Hamp is perhaps the best communicator I have ever known. His teaching is clearly presented with anticipation of the areas which might confuse the reader. Sensationalism and dogmatism are absent; sincerity and excitement are the the magnets which grab the readers attention. In his video presentations Doug’s pleasantness adds to his total charisma. However, what makes Millennium Chronicles an absolute smashing hit is Doug Hamp’s imagination. I am not talking about fantasy. Because he has studied so thoroughly this subject, because he has worked out the conflicts in scripture to arrive at the most plausible explanation, this book is the peep into the the age to come that brings all the ages together. There has never been another book that made me so confident about God’s plan. ” The Millennium Chronicles” teaches the truths of the Biblical History of mankind in absolute living color and action. It took my breadth away; but most of all, I discovered the love and power of almighty God.”

It’s HISTORY too!!!, By Al S. –

“Biblical prophecy begins to make more sense when biblical history is clearly understood. Doug masterfully weaves together narratives from the past with revelation of the future. I often found myself marveling over insights I picked up in every chapter while reading the book. At times, what Doug described was far more reasonable than the traditional explanations I’ve grown up with! For example, I’ve often wondered how – if Lucifer was so smart as God’s highest created being – how could he entertain the notion that he could over-power the God of the universe?! Well, Doug answered that dilemma so smoothly and simply in “The Millennium Chronicles” that I shook my head at how obvious the answer is!

If you’re willing to challenge some of your assumptions about both the future and the past, then read this book!”

An eye-opening look behind The Veil and into the Future!, By Randy Stucky –

“Doug Hamp has a grasp on Biblical prophecy like no one I know. He carefully researches his material using his expertise in Hebrew and Greek to re-examine Biblical translations and to weigh the evidence in “traditionally” held views on the End Times. Through the use of a fantastic literary fiction, he brings to life the future reality of The Millennial Age in all it’s glory and splendor. Doug never waivers on Biblical truth, always threading it throughout his narrative to give his audience the thrill ride of a lifetime packed with a sober dose of reality. Doug’s straightforward approach lets the Bible tell It’s own story unhindered by presuppositions and biases of previous commentators and theologians by taking it at face value. Often, the truth is more incredible than fiction! It has given me great pleasure to read this book and inspired me to research more deeply myself what the Bible has to say to us today.”


A little different view of the future, but well done. I recommend it!, December 9, 2013

By Michael J Ping –

This is an excellent book. I do recommend it. Has twists and turns, unusual story telling could be how it really turns out.

The Millennium Chronicles Chapter 2: The Final Village

“They are ready and waiting, my Lord,” Prince Yaván said to Lucifer. The sound of thousands of Adamites from the village of Koinonia, eager to hear how they could be liberated from Adonai, filled the air. The sky was uncharacteristically dark. A shadow lingered in every place where Lucifer was welcomed. He had come to the village to personally oversee the final persuasion, as there was no room for mistakes. He was the father of lies,[1] and no one could spin them as he could.

The villagers could see the two beings with brilliant shining bodies decorated with gemstones walking toward their village. Their radiance had a cold bluish hue; it felt almost ominous as if the light were hiding a shadow of darkness. Many perceived them as standing taller and nobler than any Adamite. One of the two exuded an air of great power, confidence, and authority characteristic of the anticipated Great Liberator.

“I have been encouraging them to follow their passions and pride for the past year,” Prince Yaván reported. “This entire land including this village has been waiting for you, their Great Liberator, to come and set them free from the upside-down kingdom of Yeshua!”

“Who founded this village of ‘Koinonia’?” Lucifer inquired.

“A certain immortal named Antipas was the founder and ruler of the village of Koinonia. He was one of ten whom Yeshua granted authority over such villages on account of his loyal and faithful service in the previous age. Though there were many men named Antipas in the former age, I believe it may have been the very same Antipas that we so meticulously disposed of in Pergamum, where your throne was. He held fast to the name of Yeshua and would not deny his loyalty to him,[2] even though we turned up the heat unmercifully.”

“Antipas,” Lucifer said, remembering the many mortals he had destroyed throughout the millennia. “Of course I remember him–he was ‘well-done’ when he finally passed through the veil. If he founded this village then I suspect that same devotion and loyalty must still be present. Tell me more about him.”

“As an immortal equal in power and knowledge to an Angel,” Prince Yaván began, “he directed the early mortal villagers in the building of the roads and bridges and all the infrastructure of Koinonia. He taught them how to work together and to consider the needs of others[3] by assisting in the construction of one another’s homes,[4] made of crystal, gold, lapis lazuli, gemstones, and other abundant resources.”

“I can see the infrastructure!” barked Lucifer. “What else do you know about him?”

“When a disagreement arose among the villagers, Antipas was the one who heard their complaints and because his authority was given to him by Yeshua, his decisions were binding.[5] He believed the greatest and most exciting times of the year were when they went to celebrate the feasts of Adonai. For centuries they used to go up to Adonai’s mountain, ​​​​​​to the house of the King of Jacob, ​​​​​​so he could teach them his requirements, ​​​​​​and they could follow his standards.”[6]

“With such a foundation, what makes you think that they will join our rebellion now?” Lucifer asked with concern.

“I perceive that they will offer no resistance, my Lord,” Prince Yaván said. “They appear willfully ignorant of the former times and share none of the loyalty to Yeshua like the survivors who went through the time of the Hebrews’ Trouble, nor the early generations. Unlike these villagers, the first villagers of Koinonia, who had only weeks earlier come out of the time of the Hebrews’ Trouble, truly appreciated the things that were missing in their village.”

Prince Yaván pointed to the doors which did not have a lock and key mechanism.

“They valued that locks were no longer necessary on doors, nor was intense labor required to obtain the raw materials necessary to produce such devices. As survivors of the previous age, they also valued the absence of extreme temperatures on the earth. They appreciated that everything was different in the kingdom of Yeshua: there were no obstacles to overcome, no wars to win,[7] no diseases to cure, no crimes to solve, no factories to manage.

“The first villagers also valued how the degeneration was gone from the earth and how it now yielded great quantities of food with very little effort,”[8] he said, pointing to a bushel of oranges and then a bushel of plums and another of grapes. The fruit, slightly dry from lack of rain, still looked delicious. “The villagers here and now have no concept of what they have,” he added, pointing again to fruit trees all around with dry, withered fruit. “They do not understand the mouth-watering taste of the fruit in this age that no chemical or fertilizer of the old age could approximate. They don’t understand that with no insects to infest or weeds to compete with, no insecticides or herbicides are needed.”

“The first villagers brought here by Antipas recognized that the professions they once held were no longer needed, “ Yaván continued. “There were no doctors, surgeons, or nurses because there was no sickness or disease. They were glad that the old economy was gone, never to return.[9]

“These current villagers, however, have no recollection of the previous age for the most part and increasingly are controlled by their own appetites. They will believe whatever you tell them because they love the darkness more than they love light![10] Over the past year I have observed them and they have become haters of Adonai, proud and boastful.[11] They also complain about having to take their wealth to the New Jerusalem and how unfair it is that the Hebrews receive it.”

“Then they have been waiting for me, their Great Liberator, to come and set them free from the upside-down kingdom of Yeshua!” Lucifer stated flatly. “It is just as I told you in the Abyss: ‘The greater serving the lesser is foolishness,’[12] which I have always fought against, and these Adamites appear to agree.”

“It is not as though you desire to be the greatest,” Prince Yaván flattered, “you simply are the greatest.[13] The Adamites ought to be serving you, and now they desire you to be their master.”

“Oh, how we were betrayed those seven thousand years ago!” lamented Lucifer. “I remember well the day Adonai formed the worm! The betrayal was not forming a body from the dirt, the adamáh that resembled himself, or even when Adonai condescendingly slouched over Dusty and breathed into him.[14] It was when he gave such a lowly creature complete dominion of the earth[15] and then expected us, his glorious messengers of flaming fire,[16] to be servants[17] of Dusty and his kind!”

“It was so easy,” Prince Yaván callously smirked, “convincing Adam and his helper to violate Adonai’s directive, which merely proved how unworthy they were of our service.”

“I remember the looks on their Adamite faces when they realized their folly. The moment everything changed for all time. That moment was priceless,” Lucifer recalled, despising them in his heart.

“And you were right to expose them!” Prince Yaván said. “They and their kind are worthless pieces of dirt, bits of dust ready to disintegrate back into the ground from which they came. Naturally, when you, the paragon of form and beauty, the very one that Adonai created as the sum of all things, the paradigm against which all else was measured, the epitome of wisdom and beauty,[18] were expected to act like a slave to the one made of dust,[19] then it was apparent that Adonai had transgressed his own laws of hierarchy – that is the very essence of evil! We, your lesser brothers, shared your outrage over such a scheme to enslave all of us to an inferior race. We are the greatest of Adonai’s achievements and we serve no one,” Prince Yaván said with contempt.

“A glorious day it was when they began dying,” Lucifer gloated. “They no longer absorbed and emitted Adonai’s light[20] and had to hide themselves when Adonai came looking for them.[21] They were overcome by death, which eventually left their bodies separated from their life-force and hence separated from their beloved Adonai.”

“It worked so easily and all according to your brilliant plan,” said Prince Yaván. “Thanks to you we were freed from having to serve the worms. Never again would they be able to exist in his presence[22]–that is, were it not for Yeshua.”

Lucifer grimaced. “Yes, but Yeshua’s deed cannot be repeated; thus Adonai has played his ace.[23] There will be no way for him to counteract the treason the Adamites are now committing.”[24] Lucifer sighed with satisfaction.

“And now billions of the Adamites have joined us, demonstrating once and for all the foolishness of the race of Adam and the inverted economy of Adonai,” Prince Yaván scoffed. “Adonai loves the Adamites and even relinquished his life-force for them and yet they will be delighted to have you back.”

In the village center, a man stepped up onto a beautifully-crafted platform made of sapphire and diamond. “They are almost here!” he shouted excitedly. Korah, the oldest person in the village, still looked youthful even at 870 years old.[25]

The villagers erupted in anticipation and excitement.

What people are saying about the Millennium Chronicles

“Thank you so much for the Millennium Chronicles! All I can say is that it is AMAZING!! WOW! How brilliant! I have to say – I’m not one to read books, especially “fiction.” I research in books, but probably only actually read a book maybe one every five years at best! I cannot stop reading the Millennium Chronicles, you so masterfully weave the facts of the Millennium into a riveting story, everyone MUST read this! I haven’t been able to stop reading 🙂 I’ve been thrilled reading it, I’ve also been in tears the whole time; I am very rarely moved to tears, in fact, this is the first time I ever remember being brought to tears by any book. I am drawn into the book so powerfully, it really is a masterpiece and DEFINITELY makes an impact. I can’t stop thinking about it!” – Jeanne, Dallas, TX

“Great Christmas gift – something for everyone!!! The Millennium Chronicles will captivate your thoughts and transcend you into a place of discovery and wonderment. For the Bible scholar, you will want to delve into the footnotes and extrapolate passages for deep Biblical truths that may challenge your core theology. For the Believer, allow the Holy Spirit to rejuvenate your soul and remind you of what the Blessed Hope is all about. Want to ignite a fire in your teenager for God’s Word, this is the book that will bridge the gap as it takes Biblical truth and events, bringing them to life through a captivating fictional work. For those wanting to introduce the Gospel through a non-threatening venue, this would be a great gateway book.” – Sandy J.

“Such an exciting and powerful book. Perhaps the best I’ve ever read definitely got my attention.” – Nathan L.


REVIEW by Josh Peck:


Doug Hamp has done the impossible with his book “The Millennium Chronicles”. He was woven an exciting tale of future-history together from Biblical principles; and the most exciting part of all, it’s completely based on the Bible!

Follow our hero Ben and his companion Kristiana as they take on a perilous journey of personal discovery and worldwide revelation. Set in the time of the millennial reign of Christ, Ben and Kristiana have known a life quite different from our present age. All that is about to change and their world is about to be turned upside-down, however, when Lucifer and his minions are set free from their chains of darkness and escape the bottomless pit to deceive the nations once more. Ben and Kristiana must discover the truth, trek along the King’s Highway, and find the Key to enter the City of Adonai before it is too late.

In reading this book, it is obvious Doug spent a vast amount of time in meticulous study of the Bible to put this story together. “The Millennium Chronicles” will give you a look into the often-debated world of Biblical end-times prophecy, focusing on areas that are not commonly taught within the Church today. Doug goes to great lengths to show how he came to his conclusions, interpretation, and translations in this story of the coming reign of Jesus Christ. The Bible truly comes alive in a way never before thought possible within this controversial topic.

 In this book, you will discover the Biblical reason for Lucifer’s fall and how sin truly entered the world. With an ongoing theme of the stronger serving the weaker, you will learn more about Jesus and His sacrifice, as well as gain a deeper understand of God Himself. Ultimately, this entire process will result in a closer walk with God, a very real sense of excitement for what our future as Christians will be as promised by the Bible, and a more accurate and intimate knowledge of Biblical end-time prophecy. If you only read one book this year, make sure it is “The Millennium Chronicles” by Doug Hamp. You will not be disappointed or left wanting! – Josh Peck, founder of Ministudy Ministry and author of Disclosure: Unveiling Our Role in the Secret War of the Ancients

The Millennium Chronicles Chapter 1: The Escape!

Chapter 1: The Escape

Millennium Chronicles Thumbnail

Click to get book

On the surface of the earth, two illustrious beings were coming out of the massive, golden, gemstone-covered temple. Their bodies looked like dazzling gems; their faces emitted flashes like lightning, like the rays of the sun.[i] Their arms and feet shone like polished bronze.[ii] Their clothing was shining[iii] whiter than any snow[iv] and they wore belts of pure gold around their waists.

They walked past six guardhouses, each artistically engraved with palm trees, until they passed through one of the eastward, ten-foot-tall gates in the mile-long wall that encircled the temple.[v]

“It is with great satisfaction I tell you that the time of the Covering is over,” Adam said to Michael, his companion as they crossed over a bridge. Michael thought back to the first time when Adonai offered the life-force of an animal as a covering for Adam and Eve, which they needed when they were mortals. Adam glanced over at Michael as they shared the memory of that ancient day of shame and mortality.

They continued walking next to the crystal clear water of the River of Life that proceeded from the very throne of Adonai and of Yeshua at the apex of the mountain.[vi] The water collected in a pool before the throne and looked like a sea of glass as clear as crystal.[vii] Half of it flowed to the Western Sea and the other half flowed to the Eastern Sea, branching off into multiple streams on the way down the mountain, making glad the City of Adonai.[viii] One branch flowed under the Temple and came out of the eastern-facing threshold where it continued toward[ix] the eastern territories and its water flowed toward the Eastern Sea (formerly the Salt Sea). The Living Water had transformed the Sea so that it could support all kinds of living creatures that thrived abundantly. Wherever the river flowed, everything lived!

A pair of fiery horses[x] adorned with bells inscribed with ‘Holiness to Adonai’ galloped by on the ornate gold-covered streets in front of the massive temple structure.

Michael suddenly stopped. “He’s coming,” he said solemnly to Adam, looking to the south, to the gate of the Abyss.

Under the surface of the earth, deep in the lowest recesses of the Abyss, on a remote slope of that ancient pit void of light,[xi] the unbreakable, everlasting chains[xii] that had fully immobilized Lucifer for the past thousand years began to shake. He knew that the time of his emancipation was at hand.

How he loathed his prison of darkness in the belly of Tartarus, the lowest rung of the Abyss. A foul and putrid stench of sulfur and rotting flesh, like the smell of death, permeated the stale, lifeless cavern of despair while wailing voices and gnashing teeth were faintly heard[xiii] far above them. It was here in this place, thousands of years earlier, in the days of the Great Deluge, that some of Lucifer’s Watchers had been imprisoned until he had acquired the Key and released them,[xiv] before being ingloriously cast into it himself.

Lucifer was still seething with rage over his last debacle. He had been on the verge of victory when Adonai’s mighty Angel swooped down with that unbreakable chain and single-handedly bound and thrust him into the pit, sealing him in and locking the gate with the Key.[xv] This same Key was once his when he had robbed Adam and Eve of the earth and left them in abject slavery binding their entire lives by the fear of death.[xvi] Both this Key of death and the Key of the Abyss[xvii] had been in his possession until Lord Yeshua intervened on behalf of the mortals and repossessed the Keys and the Scroll of Destiny.[xviii]

The unyielding and relentless chains that had shackled his neck, hands, and feet, shook violently and suddenly clicked open. Immediately Lucifer ripped them off, throwing them to his side. Finally free, he stood up from his bed of maggots, shook off the blanket of worms that had smothered him,[xix] and watched as the chains of his entire Watchers army also fell away. At that moment they roared mightily like a horde of lions seizing their helpless prey, shaking the Abyss. The reverberation traveled out of their dungeon and up the jagged sides of the shaft where it crashed against the mighty door, fracturing the great seal which the powerful Angel had placed over it one thousand years[xx] earlier, allowing the din of their voices to escape to the world above, announcing their return.

All eyes were on Lucifer, eagerly awaiting instructions from their leader.

“The Adamites have had one thousand years of Lord Yeshua their King ruling with his rod of iron,”[xxi] Lucifer said sarcastically, “while we have been unjustly locked away in the Abyss. Now we shall go and test the hearts of the Adamites to see if they truly desire him as their King.” He paused, then spoke slowly and deliberately, “Or to see if perhaps they missed me. I know their hearts, for they are utterly deceitful and incurably wicked![xxii] They have served him for these past thousand years because they had no choice! We shall go and liberate them from their oppression!””[xxiii] He said, triumphantly holding up the chains that had fallen off him. “I guarantee you; there will be billions of defectors who will march with us to sack Adonai’s City of Light[xxiv] because the Adamites are weak and feeble-minded!”

“My unjust incarceration these past one thousand years has only given me time to calculate every possible combination of scenarios and their potential outcomes. As you know, our battle with Adonai has never been one of strength, for he is stronger and we cannot defeat him that way. Ours has always been a battle of legality, which is his greatest weakness; we shall exploit it to the fullest. Our strategy is simple and our victory is certain because Adonai is obligated to keep his word; he cannot lie.[xxv] He has magnified his word above his name[xxvi] and therefore any contradiction of his word will create an irreparable rift in the cosmos which will force him to abdicate his throne.”

“Each of you must go out to your former regions,” he said to Prince Parás, lord over the land of Persia. Then turning to Prince Yaván, lord over Greece, “You must oh-so-subtly share our plan of attack,” he said with a malicious smile. “Then I will climb up to the peak of Jerusalem, the City of Adonai, and set up my throne.”[xxvii] The legions of the underworld cackled spitefully in the darkness, eager to realize the final fall of the Adamites and even Adonai himself.

“Take courage, my brothers,” Lucifer said, looking around at the countless faces of Watchers who were once luminous Angels resembling Adonai’s image but were now disfigured like him. “Our sacrifice to restore justice in the cosmos is nearly complete. Soon all of the Adamites will learn their true place – at our feet!” he said, reviving the ancient hatred in the hearts of the fallen. “Now, great ones, destined to rule the cosmos with me, let us rise, never to fall again and, henceforth, never to taste defeat! We shall feast on the life-force of the Adamites!”[xxviii] Lucifer bellowed. Immediately, he and countless hordes shot upward as if from cannons to the world above them. In just moments, they reached the massive gate which had shut them in and smashed through it, sending it flying thousands of feet into the air and landing miles away. Hundreds of millions of the rebel Watchers launched through the smoke billowing from the dungeon of deepest darkness and out into the agonizing light of Adonai, exposing their sunken cheeks, and shriveled arms and legs on their colorless grey, disfigured and grotesque bodies.

They hovered for a moment as they transformed themselves into Angels of light, disguising themselves as Angels in Adonai’s service, just as they had done in the previous age, though their light had a bluer hue to it than did their counterparts’.[xxix] Their hideous true-selves could not endure Adonai’s blazing brilliance. They then flew out like balls of lightning in every direction, returning to their former regions.

A strange shadow of darkness began to fall upon the pristine planet for the first time in one thousand years.[xxx] “I feel the same wickedness, greed, and depravity[xxxi] emanating from Lucifer like those of seven millennia ago,” Adam said, surprised by the sensation caused by the release of his ancient nemesis. Adam looked at the lush orchards brimming with vibrant flowers of every color that flanked the street. He inhaled deeply the rich scent of apples, passion fruit, peaches, oranges, and fruit of every kind that permeated the untainted air. The light of the rays of the setting sun poked through the wings of a thousand beautiful blue butterflies clinging to the side of one of the tall, majestic trees, home to animals of every sort. Hummingbirds drank of the nectar from the boundless fruit trees. A warm glow emitted from every leaf, and every blade of grass, every wing, and every creature. A lion gently played with a deer near a tree, and animals were everywhere.[xxxii]

Adam observed one of two wolves that were lying down together with a lamb nestled between them. It warily raised its head, tilting it sideways, and thrust its ears back for the first time in a thousand years. “It is the same bloodthirsty, invincible, and willful arrogance of Lucifer as when he strolled up to the Tree so long ago, covered with his precious gems of brilliant colors that refracted his light in every direction.”

“We met his gaze yet suspected nothing,” Adam continued, remembering his first encounter with Lucifer. “Eve and I simply admired his beauty, for none but Adonai himself compared in splendor. His presence was not surprising, for Adonai had stationed him in Eden to keep Adonai’s special places.”[xxxiii]

Michael nodded, remembering the treachery of Lucifer, once a member of the divine council of the Angels[xxxiv] on the Mountain-City of Adonai and Guardian cherub to Adonai himself![xxxv] “There has been no noble thing that the mortal Adamites could not have during the past thousand years,” he said, looking down at the sparkling crystal clear water and the many fishermen who had plenty of room to spread out nets along the banks of the River.

“And yet,” continued Michael, finishing his thought, “many have ungratefully lingered; waiting, imagining, anticipating his ascension,” he said, turning his head back to the place where Lucifer and the Watchers had re-entered earth’s atmosphere. “Now Lucifer has returned, and he and his minions will slowly begin sowing seeds of discord, just as before, so that they may eventually dare to show their faces to the Adamites and encourage them to rise against their Maker.”

Adam walked down to the bank of the river and cupped some of the water and let it pass through his fingers, remembering how Lucifer’s subtle scheme had excited his pride and desire to be wise[xxxvi] and so, being lured and trapped by it, sank his teeth into the deadly fruit,[xxxvii] savoring its flavor while Lucifer looked on, masking his devilish delight.[xxxviii]

“Not only have earth’s inhabitants been abundantly satisfied with the fullness of God’s house, but he has even invited them to drink from the river of his pleasures! Indeed with him is the fountain of life and it is in his light that we see light.[xxxix] How sad to think that,” Adam reflected, “just as the ancient Hebrews previously forsook Adonai, the fountain of living waters, and carved themselves broken cisterns that could hold no water,[xl] so too now some will prefer Lucifer, who is nothing but a broken cistern full of stagnant water.”

Adam stood and turned, looking to where Lucifer had come from the Abyss. “Adonai has placed before them life and death; they must choose their destiny.”

Menorah Radio w/ Douglas Hamp: Addendum Interview

Addendum interview with author/lecturer, Douglas Hamp as we conclude the discussion on his latest project, “The Millennium Chronicles (working title was “Twilight of Eternity”). This show is a total of 40 minutes long as it contains all of the discussion points that we weren’t able to fit into the 3 previous episodes. Here, Doug delves into the Jewish temple sacrifices of the past and how they will pertain to the New Kingdom (The 1,000 year global reign of Jesus – a time where neither war nor weapons are allowed).

The Millennium: Heaven on Earth? (Video 1 of 2)

If the earth is destroyed and the heavens pass away at the second coming of Jesus, then what will there be during the Millennium? What is the beloved city that Satan will attack after the thousand years? Why is the New Jerusalem called the bride of Christ? When do the new heavens and earth come to be? The biblical evidence demonstrates the new heavens and earth come about at the beginning of the thousand year reign of Christ, not after as is commonly thought.

The placement of the new heavens and new earth traditionally comes after the Great white throne judgment. The trouble is there are too many verses that argue against that. In this short expose, we will consider some verses, that if taken literally, prohibit the above interpretation.

The first thing we need to consider is that the earth will be in such havoc that the Lord must recreate it at (or shortly after) the second coming because it will be uninhabitable; all the oceans will have been turned to blood and be full of rotting dead corpses of all the sea creatures — certainly not a nice place to live!

Therefore, we see that the heavens pass away and the earth is utterly devastated at the second coming and thus a new heavens and new earth are absolutely necessary. In Isaiah 65:17 God declares that He will make new heavens and a new earth which from reading the passage is occurring at the beginning of the millennium/messianic age.

The basic chronology therefore is as follows:
The great tribulation
The second coming
The judgment of the nations (separation of the sheep and the goats) (Mat 25:31-41, Joel 3:2)
The new heavens and and the new earth (possibly before the judgment of Joel 3:2)
The millennium, Jesus ruling with a rod of iron (Isa 11, Rev 20:1-10)
The Great White Throne Judgment
The rethinking of when the new heavens and new earth occur takes time to accept. It took me a while because I kept thinking that no thinks that and therefore I shouldn’t believe it either. But then I just kept seeing it in Scripture. In the end, the plain interpretation of Scripture won.
