John the Revelator Saw “The Golden Kingdom of Jesus Christ”

POST-MILLENNIUMISM OR DOMINIONISM IS THE MOST MISCONCEIVED AND DARK DOCTRINE DESTROYING THE HOPE OF THE RAPTURE FOR MILLIONS. The New Agers are predicting a Crystal Kingdom to begin in this year of 2012 A.D. (Jose Argulles). Kingdom Dominion theorists are preaching a golden age in which the church takes dominion over the earth. In fact, they blame the Biblical doctrine of the Rapture as the culprit that has hindered the church from their ill-conceived idea. Instead of the present ministry of soul-winning, discipleship, salt and light influence, and the preparation of a Bride for the Son, they say we should be taking over the earth and establishing the literal kingdom. It is the same old lie Satan has told men repeatedly.

One great fact we should always remember is that there is only one antidote for error and that is truth. When error arises, we do not just cry out against the error. We rededicate ourselves to the wonderful “truths” of the Holy Scripture. John saw this “Golden Kingdom”.“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them……. and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”(Revelation 20: 4b-6) Our subject for this vision of John is one of those great Biblical concepts that very few ministers have ever touched. It is time to preach the “Biblical Golden Kingdom (Millennium).”

Abraham looked for this Golden Kingdom; why should we be ashamed to do the same? The Holy Scripture records, “By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles (a tent or cloth hut) with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God” (Hebrews 11:9-10). His acquaintance with God and the revelations of truths, though much less than present, assured him that after the present age there was a celestial kingdom. He endured the tents and huts in grand anticipation of the golden future. Faith was his stay.

The First Covenant is filled with the hope of the future. Almost every prophet has some revelation of this great reality. Isaiah gave a vivid description in Isaiah 65:17-25, “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. 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. 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. 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. And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. 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. 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. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. 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” (Isaiah 65:17-25).

Zechariah clearly placed this day as the day (revelation) of the Lord (Jesus Christ) when He would descend from the Father’s right hand to take possession from our enemies. “Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle . . .” “And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.” “In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD’S house shall be like the bowls before the altar. Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts” (Zechariah 14:3, 9, 20-21).

“Righteousness will cover the earth as waters cover the sea, the lion and the lamb will lay down together, the sword and the spear will be beaten into harvesting instruments, the earth will learn war no more.” The First Covenant literally abounds with these kinds of expressions as Holy Ghost inspired servants labored under pressure, but lived with spiritual eyes trained on the Golden Kingdom. They knew better than to even suggest this kingdom would be of their own doing. It was the “payday someday” that they lived to enjoy. Paul said, “(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise” (Hebrews 11:38-39). Believe me; they will yet receive the promise!

This hope of a golden age was so embedded in the Jewish mindset that the disciples of Jesus could not grasp His kingdom concepts. They wanted an earthly kingdom, but He was establishing a spiritual one. Even at His ascension in Acts, they were still asking the question, “. . . wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:6). The Messiah, as they supposed, was to fulfill all those golden promises. They finally saw the church age or dispensation as the interlude between Christ’s death and the golden future. After they were filled with the Holy Spirit, they labored untiringly, always watching for Jesus to return to get them. His coming was their Biblical signal that it was time for the golden kingdom. We are still watching as they did for that event (the Rapture) and the beginning of “the consummation of all things.”

The Time Is At Hand

Every Biblical sign points to the completing of the church. Israel is in place in Palestine. Babylon is being readied for the Antichrist. A world religious alliance never before considered in history is almost complete. World government is being either demanded or considered by almost every leader of the world. The only groups of people in all societies that are losing their rights are Bible-believing fundamental Christians. We are becoming more than ever a despised minority.

Before the final judgment of the wicked one, called the Great Tribulation, Jesus will come for His Bride. Satan hates this great Biblical truth, but he cannot stop Him or us. We will rise. “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”(John 14:1-3)

Following the seven (7) years of the Great Tribulation, Jesus and His raptured saints will return to the earth to establish the Golden Kingdom. “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:21-22)

Theologically, it has been called the Millennium, which means “one thousand years.” John spoke as the Holy Ghost gave him the utterance, “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years” (Revelation 20:4-6). These words are very plain and they are to be interpreted literally. Jesus alone can defeat the armies of Satan and He will do so.

Both the First and Second Covenant give great support to the role of the Messiah in His personal victory over our enemies. Daniel saw all of the man-made empires as a great image made of divers metals with a mixture of clay in her last stage. Then he saw the victor as the following, “Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth” (Daniel 2:34-35). The little stone (our crucified Saviour) became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. This great kingdom will be the one-world government with Jesus Christ as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Always remember that Satan’s efforts are a duplication of the Father’s plan. Lucifer’s one-world government, headed by the Antichrist, is an ill-conceived effort to pre-empt the kingdom of Jesus Christ. It will fail miserably.

The Celestial Kingdom

The glory of the Garden of Eden presents a foretaste of this grand time. Every distasteful result of human sin that has spoiled our planet will be removed. Earthly creatures will become as tame as a house kitten. The harsh atmospheric conditions will be changed to that which enhances our pleasure and comfort. From east to west and north to south, our world will be free of the curse. The only reminder of our former state will be the death of natural men who survived the tribulation and a withholding of earthly blessing from those of this same group who refuse the worship of the true creator, God.

Human government has been a dismal failure. Our nation of America has probably been the greatest success of all efforts to govern society. Even this nation will continue to disintegrate as we approach the end. Most governments have made life unbearable for its subjects. Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar elevated human control over the masses to an art form. Bureaucracies were established to create a system of domination. You should notice how the church has become an extension of this same design. The “Shepherding/Discipleship” disaster (still strong) was a striking example. Jesus will set up a government that is righteous and just.

The Bride of Christ who was raptured before the Tribulation and other orders of resurrected saints will reign with Christ over this golden kingdom. As soon as the Bride arrives in heaven a celebration commences. “And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth” (Revelation 5:9-10). This heavenly event will end in the coronation of the King Himself and will then proceed to leave the heavenly city for the inauguration of the New King in the world capitol, Jerusalem.

“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. 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. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 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. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Revelation 19:11-16)

Isaiah the prophet spoke of this glorious day. Obedient believers have tasted a little of this joy as we have awaited the grand finale. “The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God. Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there. And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away” (Isaiah 35:1-10). The center of this stream of earthly prosperity and sanctified government shall be Jerusalem and the throne of David. Righteousness will literally fill the earth.

The animal kingdom will become a joy to all mankind (Isaiah 11:6-9). Everything that our Father created was for His and our pleasure. It will be a worldwide zoo of uncaged creatures in their natural habitats. It will be a delight to experience their beauty. No animal slaughter will ever occur again. “And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely” (Hosea 2:18).

Glorified saints of the nations of the world will be His ruling elite. Governors, princes, mayors, and all governing individuals will be his faithful servants who have earned the right to rule by virtue of obedience to Him. It will be a world of justice, mercy, equality, and compassion. Every saint will be rewarded according to what they have done in the flesh. It will be a merit system instead of a caste system. We will have equal rights but individual rewards.

Multiple scriptural details describe the grandness of this hour. The return of this triumphant Redeemer riding His great white stallion will be too glorious to describe. His appearing in the air above the marching hordes of the Antichrist’s army will strike paralyzing fear. The sword of His mouth is but His piercing words of judgment. The entire army of millions will be instantly defeated. The Battle of Armageddon will be months in organizing and moments in finalizing. The Word of God will take flaming vengeance on this diabolical mob.

With the same expression of eternal glory He will turn to the establishment of His earthly kingdom after the enemy is vanquished. This entire planet will become His parish and object of kingly favor. Not a detail will be forgotten. Every member of His Bride will be placed in proper authority. The resurrected saints who were guests of the Bride or the Groom will be given places of service. He will quickly establish a worldwide theocracy based on the holiness of His Person. With sin judged and adjudicated, the earth will be free of its curse. Even the beauty of a sunrise will be enhanced by the absence of a poisoned atmosphere. Every expression of our natural world will be a testimony of the Redeemer’s created glory.

Every believer should live in grand anticipation of this Golden Kingdom. It is hard to imagine, but after this one thousand years of righteousness, an even greater period will follow. The New Jerusalem will descend from God out of heaven to be fixed over this planet, Earth. Then the Saints of Christ will enter into that “city without foundation,” suspended in the mid-air above the earthly kingdom. John described this city as a Bride adorned for her husband. (Revelation 21 & 22). It is the final glory of His kingdom and eternity will begin. This glorious kingdom will be the everlasting abode of our eternal God and His glorified family. What a future an overcoming Christian can live to inherit.

THE FINAL PROGRAM IN THE SERIES ENTITLED, “THE HARBINGER: A FORBIDDEN FABLE” WILL CONTINUE THIS SATURDAY. THIS COMING SATURDAY’S BROADCAST WILL BE “THE HARBINGER, LEANING TOWARD POST-MILLINNISM. I am overwhelmed with the church’s utter lack of discernment. The so-called prophet in this book is possessed with all the characteristics of the occult. Almost every action of a Psychic Practitioner is evident. His use of Scriptures from Jewish history and the application of those Scriptures to the New Testament era is “Replacement Theology”. His close connections to Rick Joyner, Jim Bakker, and Sid Roth is enough to warn any careful person. There is not one reference in this book to a single truth that is the heartthrob of End Time Prophecy. The Rapture, the Antichrist, The Nation of Israel’s future Kingdom, The Battle Of Armageddon, the Seven Year Tribulation or the Millennium are never named one time. A special article documenting every fact that we will discuss will be free to every listener. This Broadcast is live all over the world.

  1. Whewwww! Bro Chambers, that one blew me out of the water! Thanks so much! I will preach this! AND WITH HOLY GHOST FIRE! Jesus truly is Coming Back Real Soon!
    God Bless pastor Beard

  2. What a beautiful article!! I cannot wait for the rapture and all of this to commence. I try talking to others about these topics and they are dull of hearing! Thank God for the Word of God and the Blood of Jesus Christ. I wish I had a church like PawCreek Ministries to attend! Awesome, infallible truths! Maranatha!!

  3. Amen! Can’t be soon enough for me! I awakened this morning with a *homesickness* for it!

    BTW, here’s what happened to me yesterday: I was having lunch with a friend in a very wholesome & family-friendly “good country cooking” place…. and my friend did not see this as her back was to them….. but these 3 ladies kept staring — more than that: “G L A R I N G” at me!!! Also whispering under their breaths in agreement while looking right at me. I kept thinking, “well what did I do TO YOU?”

    It goes deeper than that, however. I believe I literally saw the depths of EVIL in the one lady’s eyes!! Apparently she must not have liked the “light” she saw in me. [ref: Mt 5:16]

    I honestly believe that, had the Restrainer not still been here ~ “restraining” yesterday, that lady would have been quite overjoyed to have hopped over chairs to gouge my eyes out ~ as to look at me! That’s how intent & evil her stares/glares were!!

    Sure makes you wonder what’s going on with people…. what they are thinking…. what is the reason for these stares…..

    The reason I make such a point to describe the restaurant as being extremely wholesome & family friendly is ~ because, well, apparently demons even like those places! I mean, it wasn’t like a bar we went to or anything. {would not anyway, just making a point}

    This world’s getting darker & that’s what the unsaved want anyway, right? The Pentagon is, for the first time, celebrating “gay pride month” and NYC holds their gay pride parade this coming weekend. And this abomination is being shoved at my husband’s place of employment as well… no kidding, an insurance co. actually ENCOURAGING their employees to *attend* one of these hideous celebrations!! What’s next? National Adultery month? National fornicators’ month? National child porn month? **sigh!!** We’re all feeling… a lot… like LOT!!

    I have one prayer that’s consistent in my heart & on my lips: “Come, Jesus, come!”

  4. Thank you for this explanation. I am so excited about the coming Millennium. I believe in the Rapture of the Church and then the Marriage of the Lamb in Heaven during the Tribulation, then the Final Battle of Armageddon, then the Millennium, when we will live and reign with Jesus Christ our King and Lord on this Earth. I am so excited. I keep thinking of this event and what is coming, at the same time serving and loving the Lord as a missionary in South America. Maranatha, come Lord Jesus.

  5. Dr. Chambers,
    I just read on Fox News that the City of Charlotte will no longer allow ministers to pray in the name of Jesus at public function on government property. Please continue to lift up the name of Jesus with boldness – your brothers and sisters will be praying for your ministry.

    Dear Joe Chambers,

    So getting Mitt into White House would be a slight improvement and can buy us enough to get out of this planet before a Nazi style Holocaust breaks out. Yes like the Dominionists say, WE SHOULD ELECT AS MANY CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS INTO PUBLIC OFFICES AS WE CAN, BUT DON’T EXPECT THE CHRISTIANS TO DOMINATE, BECAUSE WE ARE NOT IN A MAJORITY. The most we can do is to BUY SOME TIME BY HOLDING OF THE HOLOCAUST OR DICTATORSHIP AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. If Obama and the Demo-Socialists win we (Christians and also the Jews) will MASSIVE AND DEADLY PERSECUTION IN IN A NAZI STYLE HOLOCAUST (GULAGS) almost immediately. But if Romney wins and also Tea Party Republicans win, we might be able to BUY JUST ENOUGH TIME TO GET OUT AT THE RAPTURE. So our POLITICAL GOALS SHOULD BE TO HOLD BACK ALL FORMS OF TYRANNY BOTH DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN. Especially fight off “Patriot” Act style laws and NDAA style laws. Fight against high surveillance legisLaltion. We must watch both REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS LIKE HAWKS. QUESTION TO DOMINONISTS: HOW DO YOU EXPECT TO BE ABLE TO OVERTHROW THE ANTI-CHRIST THE MOST POWERFUL AND BRUTAL WORLD DICTATOR EVER TO EXIST. HIS SOLDIERS WILL BE HUNTING YOU DOWN TO KILL YOU. HE WILL EVEN USE DRONE MISSILES AGAINST YOU. YOU CAN HIDE IN THE CAVES OF PETRA BUT THE DRONES CAN GET THERE TOO. You might as well give up the idea of setting up a DOMINION KINGDOM. It is not possible in this world dominated by Satan. YOU MUST PAN YOUR EXIT STRATEGY. To exist Accept Jesus now, and he will EVACUATE YOU. Our situation a lot like DUNKIRK IN WW-2. The British and the French troops had only ONE WAY TO ESCAPE, AND IT WAS BY BOAT. They had to keep fighting until the boats took them away. IN our DUNKIRK, we have to keep fighting on the POLITICAL FRONT (putting Conservatives into office, and fighting tyranny legislation) and on THE SPIRITUAL FRONT (winning people to Christ, and praying for God to block evil rulers). If we keep fighting Satan the enemy, we might just BUY ENOUGH TIME TO GET OUT AT THE RAPTURE AND AVOID A HOLOCAUST. The GLORIOUS KINGDOM will not come until JESUS THE REAL SUPERMAN COMES TO OVERTHROW SATAN AND THE ANTI-CHRIST. Dominionists could never hope to be able to do that on their own. Theu cannot overthrow the ANti-Christ. Only Jesus can. WHERE IS YOUR EXIT STRATEGY? WE MUST BE PREPARED TO EVACUATE. There is no other way to avoid the HOLOCAUST.

  7. Here is an example of the error being promoted that somehow the church will “Christianize” the world and make everything great so all Jesus has to do is to come back and take over. It comes from the Book of Common Prayer used not only in the Episcopal Church (TEC) but also still being used in most of the conservative breakaway Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) parishes, pages 278-279:

    “Almighty God, kindle, we pray, in every heart the true love of peace, and guide with your wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth; that in tranquility your dominion may increase, until the earth is filled with the knowledege of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

    Of course this is NOT what the Bible teaches. What is does teach is that society and even the church will get worse – something we can see before our very eyes as being true. Only when the King of kings returns will the wolrd begin its renewal.

    In the days when I was still a part of organized religion I brought up the fact that this prayer was unbiblical to several TEC and ACNA clergy people and never got a response. I was not surprised by the silence from clergy the apostate TEC but was disappointed when those belonging to the ACNA remained similarly non-committal.

    It is amazing, though clearly prophesied in the Bible, to see for oneself just how far the infection of false doctrines in general has sickened most of the church today.

  8. RJ, what a weird experience for you in that restaurant. I would bet the poor woman glaring at you was possessed by a demon. She probably doesn’t even know it. Not all demon possessed people act like the girl on The Exorcist. I have read a few good books on demons and how they operate, etc. I too have often had people comment to me about how they are drawn to me, and how I have a “light” radiating out of me. I never put two and two together until recently. It is the light of the holy spirit working in me and I need to take advantage of that to reach others for Christ. God Bless you RJ.

  9. Thank you brother Joe for the thorough job, this ‘replacement theology’ is all about corrupting the Church and of coarse our ‘hope’, I do question all who hold on to this garbage out of Hades, almost nothing cripples Christians from spreading the Gospel that! What I find troubling is our rights as Christians in America (let alone the globe) are quickly disappearing, looking at all the signs it’s clear we’ll be called up very soon. Anyone (even pagan) who thinks that surviving the sweep of the ‘a c’ are very ignorant of all (including agenda twenty 1) and the return of Gen 6. What does get me is why don’t folks see that Matt. 24 etc was before the Apostles had a clue of the conception of the Church after the day of Pentecost, you did nail this, thank you. The old song ‘trust and obey’ for there IS no other way is so fitting now, our Father (Father Son & Sweet Spirit) knew what would be taking place, thats why brothers & sisters like you have been put in this timely slot!

    note; I would be almost surprised if the Church were not called ‘up’ before this years out, if not by the day of Pentecost of 013 it might be clear the Lord has more work for us, either way it will be worth it when we’re finally w/Him! The World is arrogantly in our faces w/there boasting sin, it’s getting sickenly harder to take all the in our face smut!

  10. So, the sleeping church wants to take over the earth and start a literal kingdom. I say good luck with that and I want no part in it. I certainly do not want this earth in it’s present condition. Man has proven that he can’t handle anything so, this literal kingdom would be totally corrupt anyway.

    Let the sleepers have it….and good luck with it. I won’t be here.
