Millennial Kingdom: Ending Hunger

Genesis 3:17b-19 …Cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; and you will eat the plants of the field; by the sweat of your face you will eat bread, till you return to the ground, because from it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.

In the Millennial Kingdom, the Genesis curse will be reversed. Adam’s choice to eat the forbidden fruit resulted in a curse to the ground. Because of this, we have weeds and thorns. Food does not grow as plentiful as intended. Acquisition of food is by hard, laborious work and effort. Sweat was not originally intended. Sweat is a consequence of the fall in Eden.

In Romans, the Apostle Paul confirms the earth is still under the curse even though Christ has died for sin. The fact we still have thorns and thistles on plant life confirms the ongoing curse. Check out a rose or a cactus. They are reminders of the fall of man. The land has yet to be freed from bondage. The redemptive and liberating event remains in the future as of 2016 AD.

Romans 8:19-22 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

Here is a glimpse into the future. The Bible describes what agricultural production will be during the Millennial Kingdom under Jesus Christ.

Zechariah 8:12 For there will be peace for the seed: the vine will yield its fruit, the land will yield its produce…

The Hebrew word for “peace” is Shalom. Per Strong’s Concordance, it means: peace, quiet, tranquility, contentment, welfare, health, prosperity; completeness (in number); safety, soundness (in body).

The seeds of plants and trees will no longer face a hostile soil or earth. They will grow in a safe and tranquil environment, free to grow to their potential.

Ezekiel 36:29b-30 …and I will call for the grain and multiply it, and I will not bring a famine on you. I will multiply the fruit of the tree and the produce of the field, so that you will not receive again the disgrace of famine among the nations.

Joel 2:22b … for the open pastures are becoming green. The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig-tree and the vine yield their riches.

Joel 2:24 The threshing floors will be full of grain, and the vats will overflow with the new wine and oil.

Isaiah 30:23b …and bread from the yield of the ground, and it will be rich and plenteous…

Say goodbye to commercials with starving children. Jesus will end hunger once and for all.
