The Second Coming of Christ and the Millennial Reign

We teach that the second coming of Christ properly relates to the physical personal return of Christ to earth (Acts 1:9-11; Matthew 25:31), in order to overthrow the Antichrist and the False Prophets (Daniel 7:17-27), bind Satan in the abyss (Revelation 20:1-3) and to establish the millennial age (Revelation 20:2-7) as Israel’s Davidic King (Luke 1:31-33; Acts 2:29-30; 2 Samuel 7:8-16) ruling over a redeemed (Jeremiah 31:31-34; Ezekiel 36:22-32) and restored (Deuteronomy 28:1-30:20; Romans 11:25-29) Israel, in fulfilment of Israel’s covenants (Genesis 12:13, 15:1-21; Deuteronomy 28:1-30:20; 2 Samuel 7:8-16; Jeremiah 31:31-34) and the predictions of the prophets (Isaiah 65:17-25; Ezekiel 37:21-28; Zechariah 8:1-17).

As with the judgements of the tribulation, so with the blessings of the Kingdom, all is mediated through the Jews (John 4:22) with whom the providential dealings of history are providentially bound.

With Israel’s acceptance of her King there begins the 1000 year kingdom on earth (Acts 1:6, 3:19-22; Isaiah 11:1-16, 65:17-25; Ezekiel 36:33-38; Revelation 20:1-7) and the resurrected saints will share in this rule (Ezekiel 37:21-28; Daniel 7:17-22; Matthew 19:28; 1 Corinthians 6:1-3; Romans 8:17-22; 2 Timothy 2:12; Revelation 5:10, 19:11-16).

We teach that this time of our Lord’s reign will be characterised by harmony, justice, peace, righteousness, and long life (Isaiah 11, 65:17-25; Ezekiel 36:33-38), and will be brought to an end with the release and final judgment of Satan (Revelation 20:7).
