The Real New Age.
It has become obvious to all that are prepared to see, that we have entered into the last days for the end of the current age, All the warnings that Jesus pointed to, that would mark the end of the age, have either already happened or are under development and awaiting their implementation. And more importantly it is happening on a global scale !
Because of this, the time has come to start to look at what is going to be happening after the end of this age, what comes next ? Well obviously it is going to be the next age. From a Christian perspective this will be known as the Millennial reign where Christ returns to this earth with his resurrected saints and sets up his kingdom that will be in place for the next thousand years.
As confirmation of this consider the verse below;
Mat 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
Now the word “world” found at the end of that verse is derived from this one in the original Greek that the scripture was written in.
From the same as G104; properly an age; by extension perpetuity (also past); by implication the world; specifically (Jewish) a Messianic period (present or future): - age, course, eternal, (for) ever (-more), [n-]ever, (beginning of the, while the) world (began, without end). Compare G5550.
So as can be seen, we ought to be getting ready for the new age, but as per normal the kingdom of Satan has stepped out early so as to present us with its own counterfeit new age movement in an effort to sow confusion and discord. In fact Satan has given us choices from crystals to nature worship under Gaia along with any old thing in between. The normal deceptions where we are encouraged to bow to the created rather than the creator.
You can rest assured that as the time for the rapture draws closer, so we will be presented with a counterfeit rapture as well. As it is the number of false Christs is starting to grow exponentially. We can expect this simply because this is the way the kingdom of Satan operates, it counterfeits and promotes the alternatives so as to deceive and entrap at every opportunity it gets, while obscuring the real.
But just because Satan has muddied the waters with their false new age, along with all the false apostles and prophets to promote it, it does not mean that the saints should not get ready for the real New Age when it comes after the Battle of Armageddon.
As can be seen from this prophecy from the book of Daniel below, this has been in the works from way back. The kingdoms of men tend to build one upon the other, when one falls the other takes its place. The natural order of things ! Many of our modern methods date back to the time of the Roman empire such as the width of the road. It has to be two horses wide. However here God says that he is going to obliterate all the kingdoms that came before and set up a new one that will last forever.
This change in the order of things should be obvious, The kingdoms of this world operated in accordance with the laws of Mammon while the Kingdom of Christ will operate on the principles of service to God. Not exactly what the atheists want to hear but that is the way it will be.
Dan 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Dan 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
Now we know from the book of Revelation that the battle of Armageddon is when Christ returns to this earth with his resurrected saints and that this is the time when the kingdom of the anti-christ gets defeated and Christ set up his own kingdom here on the earth. It is easy to understand that this kingdom will stand forever and never pass to another because we will all be in our resurrected bodies and live forever. Basically we will be immortal.
The passage below explains what will be happening immediately after the battle has been won.
Rev 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
Rev 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
Rev 20:4 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.
Now the devil that gets bound and thrown in the pit is Lucifer himself, the Emperor of the kingdom of Satan. That means the leadership of Satan is imprisoned but the rank and file demons of that kingdom will still be on the run. Gathering them up and removing their influence from creation is what we will be doing during the millennial reign. Among other things like reordering of society.
This is demonstrated in the verse below where the order of the resurrection is explained.
1Co 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the first fruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
1Co 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
1Co 15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
1Co 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
1Co 15:27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
1Co 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
Well there you have it. This is what we are going to be doing in the real New Age that will be marked by Christs Millennial reign, with the resurrected saints as the new government officials of appropriate ranks in accordance to our abilities. The rebellion of Satan will be put down and the demons rounded up and judged, creation will be brought back into harmony with its creator and God will be honored through out his creation. The last enemy destroyed will be death itself !
Of course this can be expanded upon a lot but this will be enough to bring the subject to attention and give a basic idea of what to expect.
