For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord. Isaiah 11:9
Our planet is wrought with fears of pandemics, wars, earthquakes, and global economic meltdowns. The worst is yet to come for planet earth, for there is a future seven-year period known as the Tribulation. But wait! At the end of the Tribulation, Jesus Christ will descend from heaven, deal with evil, and establish a thousand-year kingdom, which we call the Millennium.
Our Lord will reign from New Jerusalem, unify the world, transform nations, and give us a preview of eternity. He will also fulfill all the promises made in the Old Testament to the nation of Israel.
In The Book of Signs, I wrote: “The Millennium will be a time of great peace. It will also be a time of prosperity. The whole world will be economically healthy, and the land of Israel will flourish beyond anything imaginable.”
Don’t peer into the future with fear and foreboding. Gaze forward with anticipation. Things are going to get better—much better!
If God be our God, He will give us peace in trouble. When there is a storm without, He will make peace within. The world can create trouble in peace, but God can create peace in trouble. Thomas Watson
