THE MILLENNIUM KINGDOM

INTRODUCTION: We find that the kingdom is a very important theme that we find in the Bible and John Bright describes it like this. “The Bible is one book. Had we to give that book a title, we might with justice call it “The Book of the Coming Kingdom of God”. Many names are used in the scripture to describe this millennial kingdom.[1] In Matthew 19:28 Jesus describes it “in regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory”. In the third chapter of Acts it is spoken of as “times of refreshing” (v. 19) and “times of restitution of all things”. (v. 21) Hindson states that “there can be no true kingdom without a king”, and the kingdom has to be associated with the king. [2]

TIMING, DURATION AND NATURE: The word “millennium” is derived from two Latin words, mille and annus, which is translated as “thousand” and “year”. Thus it is a period of one thousand years. The Greek word that is used for millennium is chilias and this term is found six times in the book of Revelation.[3] It is the time after the church age and the Tribulation and prior to all eternity. All the promises and covenants that God made to Israel will be fulfilled at this royal reign of Christ on the earth.[4] Christ will return to the earth, Satan will be 2 bound, and because Satan’s world system has been destroyed the way is made for Christ’s kingdom on this earth. Because much prophecy of this time has been written in the Old Testament, the book of Revelation does not expand on it as much.[5] This period of time is characterized as being a period of joy and comfort due to Satan being restrained for the thousand years and is called the “theocratic kingdom” because it is ruled directly…...

The Kingdoms

...Cynthia Decker Bio-101 Andrew Walsh August 3, 2013 The Prokaryotic Kingdoms The first kingdom I would like to talk about in the Prokaryotic Evolution is the Bacteria Kingdom. There are many different bacteria in this world, some are bad which cause sickness and disease and some, surprisingly, can be beneficial in today’s world. First, let’s take a look at some bad bacteria, and what can happen when we come across it. There are bacteria and other organisms that cause disease, and they are called pathogens .Most of the time, our bodies can keep the pathogens that we are regularly exposed to in check. Our immune system is amazing at this. Once in a while our body’s defense system become compromised and will fail, maybe when we don’t get the vitamins and minerals that we need. Toxic overload (prescription medicines, cleaning fluids, insecticides, hairspray etc.),not enough sleep, too much stress, old age, too much exposure to the sun, too much physical exertion, or the wrong diet could all lower our immune system. ("A Weak, or Strong Immune System,” 2007) That is when bacteria could creep in and set up house in our bodies. Even some bacteria that we normally carry without causing us harm can gain strength and over run us if we are not careful. A bacterium makes us sick when they become too strong and secrete a poison called Exotoxins. An example of a Bacteria pathogen is too often see is Salmonella. A more common lay term for......

Separate Kingdoms

...Valerie Laken’s “Separate Kingdoms” is written using many visual strategies and different points of view in order to paint a better mental picture to her readers. She writes this short story in a way that is unique and in a form that is uncommon. Laken structures her story in a way that allows her to write it from two different perspectives, giving the reader a clearer understanding and a more in-depth look at the feelings of each of the characters. The two perspectives are in two different columns. Another unique strategy she uses in the story is combining the two perspectives. Each column is a different perspective, one being from the point of view of Colt and the other being his son, Jack. Another stylistic difference is that Laken keeps the sentence going across both columns in order to create the sense that both characters are experiencing an event in the same period of time. By using these different techniques, Laken is able to write a compelling story and really catch the attention of her readers. The main strategies of her book are used to not only catch the attention of the reader but to help the reader understand, in a deeper sense, what is going on, how the characters are feeling and how they relate to one another. One of these main strategies that is repeated throughout the story is that every action has a reaction. Colt never truly admits that he was the one that disabled the safety locks on the machine, but nonetheless, Colt still used the machine knowing that...

African Kingdoms

...1 African Kingdoms I. General Overview a. The single most important development in the history of northwestern Africa was the use of the camel as a transport vehicle. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Carthaginians engaged in just a trickle of commercial trade with west Africa, even though west Africa was rich in gold, precious metals, ivory, and other resources. b. The reason for this was the imposing barrier of the Sahara, which in Arabic simply means "The Desert." Around 750 AD, under the influence of Islamic peoples, northern and western Africans began to use the camel to transport goods across this forbidding terrain. c. Camels do several things exceptionally well: they can carry unbelievably heavy loads for impossibly long distances and they can keep their footing on sandy terrain. It was as if someone had invented sand ships and its effect on western African culture was just as profound as if they were sand ships. d. The most important developments occurred in the Sahel area just south of the Sahara; the Sahel provided southern terminal points for the goods being shipped across the Sahara. The Sahel is a dry, hot area with fertile areas and grasslands; all of the major north African kingdoms grew up in this area: Ghana, Mali, Songhay, and Kanem-Bornu: the Sahelian kingdoms.

Kingdom of Aksum

...Theresa Gbekia Mr. Riemers World history 20/October/ 2013 The kingdom of Aksum lasted for about eight, hundred years. The kingdom's unremitted location allowed easy access to areas across the red sea, into the Indian Ocean and beyond. This remarkable kingdom was one of the first civilizations in the continent of Africa. Although Aksum had influential customs regardless the kingdom was found off of its indigenous African heritage, having created their mixed ethnicities/customs, a writing system, money currency and religion. Aksum was mostly populated with the indigenous Africans. It was long after the development of Aksum had there been any mixture of other ethnicity. The expansion of Aksum also welcomed other races and people. For example the people of southern Arabia were conquered by Aksum, the different races mix along with the rest of the other ethnicity Aksum took over in the African lands such as the Cushitic speaking people and Nilo-Saharan speaking people. With prove according to the book, the heritage of the world civilization, the people of Aksum are product of genetic mixing of southern Arabia and the first there indigenous African that were already there. It is apparent that the Ethiopian and Entrain look like mixed breed compare to other African nations. In result of this many people disregard Ethiopian and Entrant’s civilization as an African civilization but consider the fact that Aksum was long before any Arab arrival. Customs and daily life of people......

...organisms. Today, taxonomists use the following categories of classification: species, genus, family, order, class, phylum and kingdom. Recently, a higher taxonomic category, the domain, has been added to this list.Kingdom is the second highest taxonomic rank below domain. It is divided into categories called phyla, each phylum is divided into classes, each class into orders, each order into families, each family into genera, and each genus into species. Living organisms are subdivided into 5 major kingdoms, including the Monera, the Protista, the Fungi, the Plantae, and the Animalia. Each kingdom is further subdivided into separate phyla or divisions. Generally "animals" are subdivided into phyla, while "plants" are subdivided into divisions.  Organisms in any given Kingdom maybe separated from organisms in any other Kingdom by many hundreds of millions, if not billions, of years of evolution.

The Kingdom of God

...A STUDY ON THE KINGDOM OF GOD A PROJECT SUBMITTED TO DR. JOEL AJAYI IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE COURSE OBST 592 OLD TESTAMENT ORIENTATION II BY JAMES D. PERKINS Student ID: 3437129 jdperkins3@liberty.edu LOUISVILLE, KY 5 OCTOBER, 2012 08 Fall 08 Fall Introduction The angel Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary and heralded one of the most debated and controversial eschatological statements in all of Scripture. "With breathtaking brevity, in one vast, glorious, revelation Gabriel succinctly summarized the entire ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ". There was nothing theologically new in the angel's announcement for much of it had been the subject of the Old Testament prophets, yet there is little agreement among scholars regarding its fulfillment. Gabriel, having come from the presence and glory of God (Luke 1:19), no doubt relayed the words of God in precise detail: "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end" (Luke 1:30-33 ESV). These words would have rung with Messianic overtones to any Jewish person living at that time, and Mary probably understood this to mean the inauguration of the anticipated Jewish...

Millennium Pharmaceuticals

...The strategies that Millennium Pharmaceuticals engaged in over the years were incredibly well calculated and executed. Founded in 1993 as a small startup, Millennium grew to a market cap of $1.4 Billion by 1998 and was able to secure alliances which guaranteed revenue for many years to come. What was very apparent when reading the Millennium case study is that the strategies which Millennium used constantly evolved. Year after year, Millennium’s alliances adapted and changed to Millennium’s benefit while simultaneously delivering for their clients. I would argue that there was never a time that Millennium did not sway a deal to its full potential. These alliances became Millennium’s bread and butter, ensuring success, a constant revenue stream and also minimized risk. Furthermore, in addition to the alliances which Millennium acquired, the resulting revenue and knowledge never went to waste. Instead, these revenues and newly acquired knowledge were essentially re-invested back into the Millennium business in very strategic manner. For example, in the beginning Millennium was sure to keep risks to a minimum and play their strengths. Their ambitions were never to invest in a single drug and then push their discovery into clinical trials. Millennium knew that an overwhelming majority of proposed drugs failed and even if successful, the prospects of becoming profitable were still slim. It was also noted in the case study that Millennium studied the failures of other......

Jesus Kingdom

...Kingdom Essay Taylor Downey Grand Canyon University: BIB 354 1/29/2015 Kingdom Essay Within scripture and the gospels, Jesus was an incredible teacher and preached the good news of the kingdom of God to those around Him in his ministry. In the Gospels, he is called teacher more than 40 times, which proves that he was truly an influential figure and people hung to every word he spoke. Within his words and teachings, he talks about a variety of topics such as love, forgiveness, and purity. However, the big picture for Jesus as a teacher was speaking truth and pointing people towards the coming of the Kingdom of God. The majority of what he spoke on centered on this idea of kingdom, which showed the many characteristics of the Kingdom. How Jesus Taught The material to which Jesus taught was very impactful, but they way he delivered it and taught was truly unlike any other. Jesus was know for using parables within his lessons because of the audience he dealt with and the resistance he might face. The best way to fight the resistance was to teach in a way that broke through potential hostility within listeners while teaching on dangerous topics (Stein, 1996). The beautiful thing about the way that Jesus taught was before his listeners could resist what he was saying, he already got his point across and it was received because of the parables in which he used. An example of this would be in Luke chapter 13 verse 18 and 19 when he uses the phrase “like a mustard seed”......

Kilpatrick August 1, 2015 Contents Introduction……………………………………………………………………………………1 Brief Summary…………………………………………………………………………………1 Critical Interaction……………………………………………………………………………..1 Conclusion………………………………………………………………………………………3 Bibliography…………………………………………………………………………………….4 Introduction The purpose of this article was to show how the church is an eschatological community that is closely connected to the kingdom of God; however, that understanding of the church’s role hasn’t been prominent in recent ecclesiology. The contents of the article contain the central features that characterize the eschatological concept of ‘anticipation’; the church is seen as an anticipatory symbol of the forth coming kingdom of God. Those characteristics are found in the celebration of the Eucharist, its pastoral services, mission and political associations. Christiaan Mostert argues that “the early Christian community understood its own existence in eschatological terms, as the vestibule of God’s reign.” Brief summary Mosert asserts that the initial development of the......

Millennium Development

...Millennium Development Goals Introduction: The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are eight international development goals that all 193 United Nations member states and at least 23 international organizations have agreed to achieve by the year 2015. They include eradicating extreme poverty, reducing child mortality rates, fighting disease epidemics such as AIDS, and developing a global partnership for development. Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) provide concrete, numerical benchmarks for tackling extreme poverty in its many dimensions. The MDGs also provide a framework for the entire international community to work together towards a common end – making sure that human development reaches everyone, everywhere. If these goals are achieved, world poverty will be cut by half, tens of millions of lives will be saved, and billions more people will have the opportunity to benefit from the global economy. Background: The aim of the MDGs is to encourage development by improving social and economic conditions in the world's poorest countries. They derive from earlier international development targets, and were officially established following the Millennium Summit in 2000, where all world leaders present adopted the United Nations Millennium Declaration. The Millennium Summit was presented with the report of the Secretary-General entitled ‘We the Peoples: The Role of the United Nations in the Twenty-First Century’. Additional input was prepared by the Millennium......

Kingdom

...Kingdom of God Dr. Pat Francis Dustin William Hall September 8th 2011 Introduction In a kingdom there are kings and queens, princes and princess's and all kinds of other royalty figures. To the common person access to the royal people and the royal property is not allowed. To capture and take hold that we we're born with royalty in our spiritual bloodline and that the God that sent HIS only begotten son not only wanted us to receive the free gift of salvation but wanted us in his royal family is astonishing. God not only wants us to be blessed but he wants us to accept the benefits of being in the royal family. Kingdom of God I have the ability to be so attractive. The kingdom of God is something that when placed inside of our hearts makes us attractive to those around us. We posses the solutions to the modern day questions. We walk with something that all mankind will react too because God created all in HIS image and are allow subject to HIS creativity entity. With the kingdom of God reigning in our hearts we allow the invisible kingdom to take reign and allow an everlasting kingdom to begin to open up opportunities for us. Opportunities like establishing that which was rightfully the LORDS back to HIM. The world has established it's kingdom and is in pursuit of capturing the sons and daughters of light. When we realize that we have the kingdom of God within us, we can begin to take authority over the kingdoms that threaten God's. The......

One of those debates is the interpretation of the millennial reign of Jesus Christ mentioned in Revelation 20. Many Bible students throughout the history of the church have been very divisive over the fact of this chapter being interpreted from a literal viewpoint or symbolically. With all the debate among the Bible students, there seems to be three distinctive views in which they view the millennium from an amillennialism, postmillennialism, and the premillennialism interpretations.
