Now we see through a glass, darkly; (1 Cor 13:12)
I thought the Church returns to Earth for the Millennium Kingdom. If not, will we ever return to Earth?
"Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." 1 Thess 4. We will be wherever Jesus is, and that is on Earth during the Millennial Kingdom. It will be so great!!!
I think about it more and more these days….recently being more aware of the reality that Jesus will be with us in the flesh..it’s mind blowing.And none of that even touches on how having Jesus accessible in the flesh would change things or how having the all people filled with knowledge of God could change things or how having resurrected people intermingling with the mortals would work. Lots and lots of room for facinating speculation! I love thinking about it!
I also though those of us who are Raptured would be on earth during the MK…
As I understand it, we will be living in New Jerusalem, but will be able to return to earth whenever we wish. We will have Glorified bodies allowing us to travel to earth, or anywhere in the universe we wish. We won't be constrained by distance, allowing us to visit other worlds essentially, instantly.
Rebellion is part of man's sin nature. The Bible compares it to "witchcraft" and we know what God thinks about that.Good Q and A, In my mind there will be sin and jesus will rule with a rod of iron, perhaps that will be the impetus for when satan is released he will find a lot of willing individuals to be foolhardy and proud enough to have one last battle so to speak.
The way I understand it, is that we will follow the Lord and the Armies of Heaven to earth at the end of the Tribulation and then return with Him to the New Jerusalem, after helping Him to establish His Millennial Kingdom on earth. Not sure if, during the Millennium, there will be much mixing for us with mortal humanity. From the last chapters of Ezekiel, it seems that there will be mortal rulers and subjects in the Millennial Kingdom. The Law will go out and be enforced by those from the earthly Jerusalem. There never seemed to be a lot of interaction between the immortal holy angels and mortal humans in the OT or the NT.
Imo we'll have our own particular roles to play going back and forth to the new Jerusalem which will be in orbit somewhere over the earth, I also think that somehow we're being trained now for it, just an opinion.I also though those of us who are Raptured would be on earth during the MK…
