You can be certain that it’s coming – an incredible millennium that will be ushered in after Christ’s return. And the devil doesn’t want you to know about his 1,000-year prison sentence because it reveals his true character.

The resurrection of the righteous begins the 1,000 years. The resurrection of the wicked ends the 1,000 years

“These came to life again and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.” Revelation 20:4

This is the first resurrection.  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. Revelation 20:5, 6.

What exactly are the symptoms of the beginnings of the First Resurrection? Do you suppose it is the lifting of the veil, the fog that has clouded the minds of humanity for so long? If so, then it certainly is occurring, right now.

The Bible says that Satan will be bound in the bottomless pit during the 1,000 years. What is this pit?

The word for “bottomless pit” in the original Greek is “abussos,” or abyss. That same word is used in the Greek version of the Old Testament in Genesis 1:2 in connection with the creation of the earth, but there it is translated “deep.” “The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.” How interesting! The words “deep,” “bottomless pit,” and “abyss” here refer to the same thing–the earth in its totally dark, disorganized form before God made order of it. Jeremiah, in describing this earth during the 1,000 years, used virtually the same terms as these in Genesis 1:2: “without form and void,” “no light,” “no man,” ‘black.” Jeremiah 4:23, 25, 28. So the battered, dark earth with no people alive will be called the bottomless pit, or abyss, during the 1,000 years just as it was in the beginning before Creation was completed. Isaiah 24:22 also speaks of Satan and his angels during the 1,000 years as “gathered in the pit” and “shut up in the prison.”

What is the chain that binds Satan? Why is he bound?

The chain is symbolic, a chain of circumstances. A spirit being cannot be confined with a literal chain. Satan is “tied down” because he has no people to deceive. The wicked are all dead and the righteous are all in heaven. The Lord confines the devil to this earth so he cannot roam the universe hoping to find someone to deceive. Forcing the devil to stay on the earth, alone with his demons for a thousand years with no one to deceive, will be for him the most galling chain ever forged.

What happens to the wicked–living and dead–at Jesus’ second coming?

“With the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.” Isaiah 11:4. “When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God.” 2 Thessalonians 1:7, 8. “Let the wicked perish at the presence of God.” Psalms 68:2. “But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.” Revelation 20:5.

 

Ezekiel Chapter 34, My Favorite

1 And the word of þe Lord came vnto me, saying;

2 Sonne of man, prophecie against the shepheards of Israel, prophecie and say vnto them, Thus saith the Lord God vnto the shepheards, Woe be to the shepheards of Israel that doe feede themselues: should not the shepheards feede the flockes?

3 Yee eate the fat, and ye clothe you with the wooll, yee kill them that are fed: but ye feede not the flocke.

4 The diseased haue ye not strengthened, neither haue yee healed that which was sicke, neither haue ye bound vp that which was broken, neither haue yee brought againe that which was driuen away, neither haue yee sought that which was lost; but with force and with crueltie haue yee ruled them.

5 And they were scattered because there is no shepheard: and they became meate to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.

6 My sheepe wandered through all the mountaines, and vpon euery high hill: yea my flocke was scattered vpon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seeke after them.

7 � Therefore, yee shepheards, heare the word of the Lord.

8 As I liue, saith the Lord God, surely because my flocke became a pray, and my flocke became meate to euery beast of the field, because there was no shepheard, neither did my shepheards search for my flocke, but the shepheards fed themselues, and fed not my flocke:

9 Therefore, O yee shepheards, heare the word of the Lord.

10 Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I am against the shepheards, and I will require my flocke at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flocke, neither shall the shepheards feede themselues any more: for I will deliuer my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.

11 � For thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I, euen I will both search my sheepe, and seeke them out.

12 As a shepheard seeketh out his flocke in the day that hee is among his sheepe that are scattered: so wil I seeke out my sheep, and will deliuer them out of all places, where they haue bene scattered in the cloudie and darke day.

13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countreys, and will bring them to their owne land, and feede them vpon the mountaines of Israel by the riuers, and in all the inhabited places of the countrey,

14 I will feede them in a good pasture, and vpon the high mountaines of Israel shall their folde be: there shall they lie in a good folde, and in a fat pasture shall they feede vpon the mountaines of Israel.

15 I will feed my flocke, and I will cause them to lie downe, saith the Lord God.

16 I will seeke that which was lost, and bring againe that which was driuen away, and will bind vp that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sicke: but I will destroy the fat and the strong, I will feed them with iudgement.

17 And as for you, O my flocke, thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I iudge betweene cattell and cattell, betweene the rammes and the hee goates.

18 Seemeth it a small thing vnto you, to haue eaten vp the good pasture, but ye must tread downe with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to haue drunke of the deepe waters, but yee must fonle the residue with your feete?

19 And as for my flocke, they eate that which yee haue troden with your feete: and they drinke that which yee haue fouled with your feete.

20 � Therefore thus saith the Lord God vnto them, Behold, I, euen I will iudge betweene the fat cattell, and betweene the leane cattell.

21 Because yee haue thrust with side and with shoulder, and pusht all the diseased with your hornes, till yee haue scattered them abroad:

22 Therefore will I saue my flocke, and they shall no more be a pray, and I will iudge betweene cattell and cattell.

23 And I will set vp one shepheard ouer them, and hee shall feede them, euen my seruant Dauid; he shall feede them, and hee shall be their shepheard.

24 And I the Lord will be their God, and my seruant Dauid a prince among them, I the Lord haue spoken it.

25 And I will make with them a couenant of peace, and will cause the euill beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wildernesse, and sleepe in the woods.

26 And I will make them and the places round about my hill, a blessing; and I will cause the showre to come downe in his season: there shall bee showres of blessing.

27 And the tree of the field shal yeeld her fruite, and the earth shall yeeld her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the Lord, when I haue broken the bands of their yoke, and deliuered them out of the hand of those that serued themselues of them.

28 And they shall no more be a pray to the heathen, neither shall the beasts of the land deuoure them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraide.

29 And I will raise vp for them a plant of renowne, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither beare the shame of the heathen any more.

30 Thus shall they know that I the Lord their God am with them, and that they, euen the house of Israel, are my people, saith the Lord God.

31 And yee my flocke of my pasture, are men, and I am your God, saith the Lord God.

Examples Of Recent Witnessed Truths

Published December 6, 2016 by tindertender

People show their true colors when they speak, especially if they wear a mask. They feel they can do anything if they hide themselves sufficiently.

Jeremiah
  24“Can a man hide himself in hiding places
            So I do not see him?” declares the LORD.
            “Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?” declares the LORD.

A woman described a drive by shooting in North Dakota. She did not know who did it, but someone’s cat was hit by gunfire and killed. It could have been a person she said. It must have been the Indians she said. Do you know what that is? That is bearing false witness.

There are six things that the LORD strongly dislikes, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.
~Proverbs 6:16–19

Human beings were brutalized for standing in protection of sacred grounds and waters. What did they do? They turned the other cheek. Their tents, supplies and all materials were torn apart and pissed upon by a truly evil crowd. What did they do? They prayed for those who were destroying property.

Matthew 5:38
Eye for Eye
38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’[a] 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well.

Vicious attacks and threats to life are being done and made to the first people of the land as well as veterans of many nationalities who have fought for, and sworn to protect freedom in this country.

Romans 2:11
11For God does not show favoritism. 12All who sin apart from the Law will also perish apart from the Law, and all who sin under the Law will be judged by the Law.…

“For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” (Matthew 6:14-15)

The Elders want peace and love for all people protecting the lands and waters. True leadership does not put one man against another. True leadership embraces all as equal and allows choices to be made per individual, walking in the way of honorable example.

Through His Word and His Perfect Example, Jesus Shows Us How to Live.  Like Him, we, too, should strive to be…
• Loving • Compassionate • Responsible • Focused • Dedicated • Obedient • Respectful • Prayed Up • Serious • A Hard worker • Kind • Thirsty for the Word • Humble • Patient • Concerned about others • Living on His purpose • Following His will • Content • Smart • Forgiving

This country has lacked good leaders for a very long time. Those that have integrity and morals are stifled or killed. Puppets do dirt while the fat cat watches in glee.

You have a choice. You can be a slave, owned and given orders, obediently killing and harming, or you can break the bonds and walk free in righteousness. You still have time to turn it around.

Will you?
