Christ returns
Antichrist's defeated,
His armies destroyed,

The Kingdom of God established
Millenium Kingdom Eternal Kingdom



Christ returns victoriously to defeat and destroy Antichrist's Empire and start the millenium

Day of the Lord - time frame 5 ends with the return of Christ to defeat Antichrist, his armies and the false prophet.  We read  in
Revelations 19:11-21

Revelations 19:11-21
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them
with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

  In the Old Testament the establishment of the visible kingdom of God over the whole earth was a future event. The book of Daniel tells the story of worldly kingdoms rising and falling until God establishes a kingdom that would last forever. God revealed to Daniel in Daniel 2:44, 45 (see Daniel 2) how He was going to establish this everlasting kingdom and when. 

wpe123.jpg (1112 bytes)Daniel 2:44,45
44 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.
45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

  This Stone (Christ) smiting the image at it's feet and then the whole image crumbling foreshadows the return of Christ and His victory of Antichrist's goliath empire.

Modern nations within old Roman Empire land area that will be united to be world's greatest and last empire under Antichrist in the last days Christ the Rock of Ages returns and destorys Antichrist's Empire.

  Daniel saw a rock which is symbolic of none other the God's Son - Christ the Rock of Ages. This rock strikes and destroying the image of Daniel 2. The image when interpretated is symbolic of the nations that make up the last great empire of man - Antichrist's Empire. When the rock strikes the image the whole image crumbles and the rock becomes a mountain which covers the whole earth.

                         The Rock (Christ) becomes a mountain that fills the whole earth

                                                                   wpe30.jpg (7122 bytes)  

  This mountain over the whole earth is a symbol of kingdom of God established over the whole earth when Christ returns with His saints to destroy Antichrist's Empire. This mountain is none other than the millenial reign of Christ and his saints over all the nations of the earth.


  When Christ returns and defeats Antichrist and his armies then Christ and the saints will rule over the whole earth. This is an important truth to Christians now. What one does as a Christian for Christ in his or her life determines their position in the future Kingdom of God. The parable Jesus taught in Luke 19:17-19 speaks of this truth.

Luke 19:17 - 19
17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.
19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

  Those that used their abilities wisely were rewarded openly when Christ returns. There will be those that rule over ten cities as opposed to those who rule over five depending on what they do with the God given abilities in fulfilling the Master's great commission to all believers. Paul talked in
1 Cor 3:13-15 about our works being judged to determine our postion in the Kingdom of God

1 Cor 3:13-15
13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer

Jesus prayer 'Our Father' in Matt 6:9-13 always looked forward to the establishment of the visible Kingdom of GodJ

Matthew 6:9-13

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Kingdom of God during the millenium

Sometimes we hear or read the expression ' the Kingdom of heaven'.  God's kingdom was always in Heaven because God is eternal. Heaven is where the departed saints go after they die. When Christ ascended into heaven He took all the old testament saints up with him because Christ's death opened heaven's door forevermore (Ephesians 4:8-10)

Ephesians 4:8-10
8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things).

  The kingdom of heaven today is growing every time a departed saint arrives in heaven. If we could count all the departed souls in the kingdom of heaven above the number would be astronomical. When Christ returns with all His saints having immortal bodies to earth then the kingdom of heaven has come down to earth to establish the visible Kingdom of God. The visible Kingdom of God was always in the heart of the Father to give to His Son and the saints (Matt 25:34).

Matthew 25:34
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Jesus said in Luke 13:18-19 the kingdom of God is like a mustard seed being the smallest seed growing to its maximum as a plant and then on to be like a mighty tree branching out in all directions. The greatness and height of this tree is indicated by the fowls of the air resting in its shadows.

Luke 13:18-19
18 Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?
19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.

  The Kingdom of God started with one person on earth - the Lord Jesus Christ when He was born in Bethelem - He was the promised seed in
Genesis 3:15.  From the time Mary, the mother of Jesus, conceived, the kingdom of God began on earth. The kingdom of God comes to its fulness of perfection as a kingdom by the end of the millenium. After the millenium the kingdom of God over the eons and eons of eternity will like a mighty oak tree rise up into the heavenlies and branching out in all directions taking dominion over all that God created in the heavens: the stars, the planets, the galaxies and all of His handiwork.  David said (Psalm 8:3-6) what is man that he created him lower than the angels and yet has given him dominion over all of His handiwork.

Psalms 8:3-6
3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

  The kingdom of God is much easier to understand in the old testament and Christ's parables if you look at the kingdom of God as a process which began in the heart of the Father as mentioned earlier. The kingdom of God will be visibly established and perfected during the millenium over the whole earth. God's Word reveals 3 main divisions of prophecy concerning the church, Israel, and the nations that all work together yet separately toward the establishment of the kingdom of God. Think of the kingdom of God as a trinity -
one kingdom but 3 levels - just like one God revealed in the person of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The 3 levels in the perfected kingom of God will be: the church - which will be the future rulers with Christ having immortal bodies and reigning as priests and kings over the nations; 2nd level - the Jewish nation of Israel as being the lead nation.  Jerusalem as the earth's capitol and the Jews posessing all the land and blessings promised to it in God's Word; the 3rd level - Gentile nations  - each having an inheritance and their portion of land sharing in the eternal glories of dominion that awaits them in the eternal kingdom of God. All kingdom prophecy has this forward look to bring about the kingdom of God with its fulfillment of all the promises made to the church, Israel and the nations. The bible is literally the story of the Father bringing to pass the kingdom of God for His Son, giving Him the church - His eternal bride and queen to share His throne over the kingdom. Israel is the chosen nation of God and the saved Gentile nations to receive the blessings which shall flow down from God and out to them. The kingdom of God did not come without a price on God's part.  The Father sent his Son into the world to die for our sins to make entrance into the kingdom of GOD a reality for the church, Israel and the nations. The kingdom of God was bought and paid for with divine love for mankind as revealed in the sacrifices of both the Father in offering up His only begotten son for us and the Son willing to be the sacrifice and the travail of the Holy Spirit to see the kingdom of God through to divine eternal perfection.

The beginning of the millenium - a lot of work for everyone involved

  The judged and purged earth after the day of the Lord (time frame 5) is now ready for redemption, restoration, regeneration, restitution and the millenial Kingdom of God. At the outset of the millenium, Christ and the saints have returned to a world that is reeling from the effects of the 6 seals during timeframe 4 and the 7th seal (7 trumpet/bowl judgments) during the terrible Day of the Lord - time frame 5).

  The 7 seals of Revelations caused the earth to experience worldwide war, famine, desease, earthquakes, fire, Satanic beings on the loose, mountains brought low and valleys exalted, whole continents disappearing while new ones appear. Total devastation of cities that have fallen and been destroyed worldwide while the earth reeled to and fro as a drunkard in the day of the Lord (
Isaiah 24).

Isaiah 24:20-23
The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.
22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.
23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

  The tremendous heat of the trumpets and vials applied to the earth during the day of the Lor
d melted the polar caps caused the earth to wobble terribly and finally adjusting itself in an upright position. 

wpe37.jpg (27982 bytes)

  All the extra water evaporated to restore a canopy of water around the earth as it was in Genesis 1:6

Genesis 1:6-8
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

  God allowed the water canopy of Genesis 1:6 to collapse and fall to earth resulting in tilting of earth's axis; frozen polar caps; uneven climate; much shorter life span

Genesis  7:17-20
17 And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.
18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

Job 38
Job talks of the polar caps as being used in the day of the Lord

Job 38
22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

Day of the Lord - time frame 5 is the time of trouble of battle and war Job 38 speaks of. During this time, great heat will be applied to the earth and the great ice caps will melt with fervent heat to accomplish God's will which is to restore the water canopy; make the earth upright again and make the climate more even over the whole earth.

2 Peter 3:10
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

  Psalm 148
is amazing psalm summing up the previous verse.  This psalm talks of the activity of nature during the day of the Lord  involving fire, and hail; snow, and vapours (due to the ice melting and evaporating because of the great heat in the day of the Lord). This evaporation restores the water canopy which is not here now but verse 4 says will be created and established forever.  If it existed in the past (Genesis 1:6) and is not here now then it must be created in the future.  It will be crfeated by the time Christ visibly returns to begin the millenium.  Praise God.  

Psalm 148:4-8
4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
5 Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created.
6 He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.
7 Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:
8 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word:

  The effects of the water canopy restored during the Milleniun and the earth being upright will restore the climate conditions that existed before the flood. The water canopy around the earth acts as a filter from cosmic rays that affect our ageing. During the millenium, people will live to be hundreds of years old as they did before the flood as recorded in Genesis geneology. Isaiah 65 is speaking of millenium conditions whem he talks of a child being a hundered years old and the sinner rejecting the laws of the Kingdom could die. The wolf will feed with lamb and the lion eating straw.

Isa 65:18-25
18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.
24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

Satan bound for a 1000 years and
then let loose for a short season

  Satan himself is bound for a 1000 years in a place inside the earth called the bottomless pit.  When the 1000 years are up Satan will be let loose again for a short season (
Rev 20:1-3).

Rev 20:1-3

1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

  This 1000 years that Satan is bound is called 'the millenium' (millenium = 1000 ). It is a time when the raptured saints and tribulation martyrs that had received their immortal bodies at the rapture and the end of the 3 1/2 year Christian tribulation period (see martyrs raised) have now returned back to earth with Christ to rule with Him over the nations of the earth as kings and priests. Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords (see chart below and charts above).

wpe12B.jpg (14444 bytes)

  From the above chart we see that Christ returns with His saints who now have immortal bodies they received at the rapture and the tribulation martyrs raised at the end of Christian tribulation. They now visibly reign with Christ on earth as priests and kings during the millenium. However, the people of the nations themselves that enter the millenium will be composed of those who have lived through the great Christian tribulation and the day of the Lord and allowed entrance into the kingdom of God.  During those terrible days before the millenium as much as 1/4 or more of the earth's population did not survive. Those that make it into the millenium will be blessed indeed. However, they are not free yet from the law of sin and death that works in their body and soul they inherited from Adam (Romans 5:12).

Romans 5:12
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

  Christ as the great creator will use the immortal saints (who will number in the high millions if not billions because these are the redeemed saints from the time of Adam to end of the first resurrection) to oversee the job of rebuilding and reconstruction of the earth during the millenium. These immortal saints who have been redeemed from a now prior age to the millenium, were saved at a time when Satan was the prince of the air. They have been redeemed from every walk of life known to man. Some were doctors, lawyers, preachers, deacons, carpentars, garbage men, janitors, presidents, kings, queens, dentists, bus drivers, taxi drivers, , morticians, etc. Some of these as sinners were former adulterers, liers, drunkards, effeminates, homosexuals, murderers, thieves, haters of them that do good.  The good news is, that during the age of darkness when the prince of darkness ruled, they got saved and their names written down in the book of life. Now they have eternal life as kings and priests unto God and are using their new powers of their immortal bodies plus the unique talents each one has, their gifts and authority given to them by Christ to rebuild every town, city, nation, and country to perfect the Kingdom of God over the whole earth during the millenium.

Immortal saints rule with Christ as priests and kings for 1000 years on the millenial earth

l                                                                     wpe135.jpg (33744 bytes)

Israel is the head nation with Jerusalem as the earth's capitol
Gentile nations enjoy peace and righteousness for 1000 years


What happens at the end of the 1000 year millenium

  During the 1000 year reign of Christ the immortal saints have been ruling over every city and nation overseeing the perfection of the kingdom of God.  Sickness, desease, pestilence, massive destruction, that existed when the millenium started has now given away to a 1000 years of no war and unheard of milennial prosperity for all nations.  Without war and with the personal rule of Christ and the immortal saints their will be a tremendous growth in every field of study especially in the purposes and plans of God. With the curse lifted from the earth and the water canopy restored those living in the millenium will live hundreds of years in age. The increase in population will be staggering and mans conquest of the stars will continue with possible interplantery travel within at least our solar system. However, even with a perfected divine government, climate, and peace, earthly man still has the sin nature of adam during the 1000 year reign. Many during the millenium have obeyed the laws of God because of the divine enforcement of the immortal saints ruling as priests and kings. Many in their heart will want to let sin reign and choose unrighteousness over righteousness, evil over good, darkness over light, ungodliness over holiness.  Their must be a final test to perfect earthly man, a final separation of those that are the pretenders from the sincere; the good from the bad; the righteous from the hypocrites. Again, God uses Satan as a instrument to accomplish this.

Satan is let loose for a short season

Rev 20:7-10
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

  Satan is the instument again that God is going to use to test the nations at the end of the 1000 year millenial reign. Loosing of Satan from his prison will show that not even a 1000 years has changed him in his diabolical desire to be worshipped as god and have control over the nations. Gog and Magog like in Ezekiel 38 are the same identities. Gog is Satan himself and magog is the man that Satan uses. Antichrist in the last days before the millenium was Satan's man through which he worked (timeframe 1), now Satan uses Magog again at the end of the 1000 year millenium. Toward the end of the 1000 millenial reign, it is likely the immortal saints have returned control back to many on earth of responsibilites they had taken on in the millenium. They now have appointed earthly ruling authorities among the nations to carry out God's will.  After all, the millenium serves as a training ground for both the immortals and the nations for the eternal reign of the perfected kingdom that follows (see below). After the immortal saints have given much of their control back to the nations they themselves now set their sights on God's future plans. The kingdom of God as it grows will be expanding outwards in every direction from earth and beginning to populate the heavens - that is -outer space.  After the1000 years the immortal saints will go to live in the city above called the New Jerusalem and most likely that transition will be well under way as the 1000 year millenia draws to a close.The nations will be tested to see how responsible they are without the visible appearance of the immortal saints enforcing God's rule.  Whatever the case may be at the end of the 1000 years,   we read that Satan is successful in gathering from the 4 corners of the earth a number that could not be counted. They will attempt to take the beloved camp of the saints - the earthly capitol city of Jerusalem. We are told simply that fire from heaven came down and destroys them. The many from all nations that had not joined Gog and Magog and were not destroyed by fire they are greatly rewarded. The law of sin and death from their mortal bodies is taken away from them. They get to eat of the tree of life and live forever in their earthly bodies. These faithful from all nations will fulfill what Adam and Eve were originally commanded in Genesis 1:28 - to be fruitful and multiply as a sinless race.
Ge 1:28
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

  After the perfecting of the kingdom of God during the millenium, Jesus will offer the kingdom back to the Father as a perfect work preparing for the eternal state.  This is summed up in so many words in
1 Corinthians 15:23-28.

1 Corinthians 15:23-28
23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith, all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

           The perfected eternal ever increasing Kingdom of God

Rev 21:1-3
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

After the 1000 years is finished (end of the millenium) John sees a new heaven and a new earth for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away; and there was no more sea. This is very important to understand.
This is the same heaven and earth that existed before the 1000 year millenium but made new. Just prior to the millenium their were great geological changes during the day of the Lord ( time frame 5). There also was the restoration of the water canopy over the earth and the earth's axis becoming upright (
see above charts). After that, their is the personal reign for a 1000 years of Christ and the immortal saints as a time of regeneration, restoration, and reconstruction of the earth. The end result after a 1000 years was what John saw - the old heaven and earth passed away and made new.  This is easy to understand when you consider the following verses that are applied to a person that is saved from sin. Over time old things pass away and all things are made new .

2 Corinthians 5:17
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

1 Thessolonians 5:23
23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

These two verses refers to a person that accepts Jesus Christ as their personal saviour. The moment that individual is saved a process began known as regeneration which ends with that person perfected body, soul, and spirit when Christ returns. Yes, old things have passed away but through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit and the renewing of the mind that person becomes a complete new creature in Christ.  This process may take a while to bring to fruition to see the results.  God did not destroy the individual that got saved for he is the same old individual but made completely new.  So it is with the heaven and earth after the 1000 year reign in which Christ and the immortal saints as well as the nations work very hard to perfect the kingdom of God. The result is the old heavens and earth that started with judgments of the day of the Lord followed by the 1000 year reign of Christ resulted in a new heaven and a new earth.  Many bible teachers and scholars show charts where at the end of the 1000 years God completely destroys the earth by fire and then creates a new one.  This is incorrect and distorts the whole purpose of the 1000 year reign of Christ and the immortal saints and that is to perfect the kingdom of God on earth.  It does not make sense to destroy that which Christ and the immortal saints labored 1000 years for.  The scriptures of those that advocate the earth been completely destroyed by fire apply the verses that apply to the day of the Lord which have their fulfillment in time frame 5.  The judgments of the day of the Lord take place after the rapture but end at the return of Christ with His immortal saints at the BEGINNING of the 1000 year reign NOT the end (
see charts above). 

2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

  The holy city, new Jerusalem, comes down from heaven prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. What a day that will be. Imagine standing on the earth at the end of the millenia when the kingdom of God is perfected on the earth.  God now has a perfected heavenly people - the church which is His bride and a perfected earthly people - the saved nations in which the last enemy to be destroyed was death.  Jesus offers up to the Father a perfect work (1 Cor 15:24, 28 as quoted earlier). The Father now joins the Son in a great spectacle event in which all creatures watch as this holy city - the New Jerusalem descends in magnificence and splendor as a bride studded with glory for her bridegroom. This is a marriage between the heaven and earth and also is the new home of the immortal saints with the Father and Son . Jesus said to his deciples that in His father's house their are many mansions and He goes to prepare a place for each immortal saint. Is this city big enough for all the redeemed immortal saints? It sure is. We read in Rev 21:16 and when the measurements are translated (12,000 furlongs = about 1500 miles) we find the New Jerusalem to be a city that is about 1500 miles high, 1500 miles in width, and 1500 miles in length.

Rev 21:16
16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

  A city this big could allow for many multi-tiered levels. I believe personally that just like the earthly Jersualem has its holy mountain Zion that the New Jersualem has within it it's holy mountain Sion where God's throne will be. We read in Hebrews 12:22

Heb 12:22
22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

  The city had no need of the sun or moon to light it for God Himself will be it's light. God the Father will dwell there and the Lord Jesus Christ will rule from there with His bride - the redeemed immortal saints.  The New Jerusalem, suspended over the earth at some height, is now the capitol of the universe over God's perfected Kingdom on earth that will expand and increase forever outward. The saved nations will grow in population and take dominion over the stars and galaxies forever that God created. The Father, Son, the angels, and the redeemed immortal saints however will remain a fixed number. They themselves do not increase because they do not marry and have children.Though the immortal saints are at home in the New Jerusalem they can travel in their immortal bodies anywhere in the universe and at the speed of thought. The saved nations however, will be limited by their redeemed but perfected earthly bodies like Adam and Eve had before the fall. They will always need the supernatural provisions God provides for them that grow in the New Jerusalem. We read in Rev 22 about the tree of life bearing its fruit every season and the leaves for the healing of the nations. These trees provide eternal life for each newborn born in the perfected kingdom of God and divine health and restoration for their body.

Rev 22:2
1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

  The new Jerusalem will be suspended at some height over the earthly Jerusalem. The heavenly light of the New Jerusalem will shine down on the earthly capitol of Jerusalem providing heavenly light that all nations on earth can come and walk in. The sun and moon will still give light upon the earth but the capitol city Jersualem on earth will always enjoy the heavenly glory shining down on her from New Jerusalem above (Rev 21:23-26).

Rev 21:23-26
23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

These truths are also confirmed in the Old Testament in Isaiah 60:18-20

Isaiah 60:18-20
18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.
19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

  The nations shall walk in the light of the New Jerusalem for all nations will be required to attend specials feasts in the earthly Jersualem throughout the year.  We also read that the saved nations bring into the New Jerusalem their honor and glory.  As big cities have airports to come and go I believe the saved nations will bring their goods and riches as commerce to the New Jerusalem and have access in a big way to the New Jerusalem above. Such a large city as the New Jerusalem could have many portals on each side for the saved nations to come and go no matter how big the Kingdom of God grows. However, just like in the old Testament temples, the Gentiles were only allowed in the outer court of the temple, so much of the New Jerusalem will be restricted to only God's angels and the immortal redeemed saints who live there.

The perfected kingdom of God population expands from a perfected earth to taken ever increasing dominion over space  

  The saved nations on the earth that go into the eternal state after the 1000 years has ended had death the final enemy taken away from them. They get to eat of the tree of life and are perfected as an eternal redeemed earthly people. They continue to have children and their childeren have children and will eventually over time populate the planets and galaxzies that God has created from the beginning for man to have dominion over. The future role of the immortal saints as priests and kings with Christ and being a fixed number will see their dominion and responsibility grow as the kingdom of God expands outward from earth forever. Consider the following well known verse -
Isaiah 9:6,7 and notice the words 'of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end'

Isaiah 9:6
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

  Isaiah speaks of a child that would be born that would also be a son that is given to us. Of course this would be God's only begotten son - Jesus Christ who would be called all these wonderful names. This same Jesus would rule over a government of peace that would increase forever. This part of the prophecy reaches its fulfillment in the perfected kingdom of God at the end of the 1000 year. After the 1000 year millenium the kingdom of God will continue to increase forever as the nations population grows and they begin to populate the heavens above - its planets and galaxies in the eternal ages to come. Isaiah 60:20,21 speaks of a time in the future when every child born is within itself a great nation.

Isaiah 60:20,21
21 Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.
22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time.

  God said this in His call to Abraham that he would be the father of a great nation but Isaiah talks of a time when every child born is a great nation.  This indicates the great growth and expansion of the perfected Kingdom of God. Notice, Isaiah first tells us that all the people are rightous and Israel has inherited its promised land which is only the branch of His planting and that God would hasten it's increasing population in His time.
