Millennial Kingdom: Healthcare

When Jesus roamed the Earth over 2,000 years ago, He was a healer. Jesus fulfilled prophecy. Isaiah 35:5-6a Then the eyes of the blind will be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped. Then the lame will leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute will sing for joy…

Matthew 15:30 And large crowds came to Him, bringing with them those who were lame, crippled, blind, mute, and many others, and they laid them down at His feet; and He healed them.

Jesus healed the deaf in Mark 7:31-35.

A man with leprosy was cleansed in Matthew 8:1-3. Ten men with leprosy were cleansed in Luke 17:11-19.

When He comes the second time, health will be a hallmark of His kingdom. At the onset of the kingdom, residents will be healed from their illness. Jeremiah 30:17 ‘For I will restore you to health and I will heal you of your wounds,’ declares the LORD…

Ezekiel 34:16a “I will seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken and strengthen the sick…”

History will repeat when Christ heals the deaf and blind. Isaiah 29:18 On that day the deaf will hear words of a book, and out of their gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind will see.

Of those born into the kingdom era, they will not face disease. Isaiah 33:24 And no resident will say, “I am sick”; the people who dwell there will be forgiven their iniquity.

Isaiah 65:20 No longer will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his days; for the youth will die at the age of one hundred and the one who does not reach the age of one hundred will be thought accursed.

Still births and sudden infant death syndrome will be a thing of the past. The Hebrew word for “youth” is na ‘ar. It means: a boy, lad, servant, youth, or retainer (Strong’s Concordance). A young boy will be the age of 100 years.

Longevity of life will be restored as in the days prior to Noah’s flood. Prior to the flood as the oldest man, Methuselah lived to be 969 (Genesis 5:27). It was not uncommon to live 700-900 years as noted in Genesis 5.

With people living longer lives, the population of humanity will explode during the Millennial Kingdom.

Bad news for 21st century politicians, Jesus has a better health plan.

Zechariah 10:8 I will whistle for them to gather them together, for I have redeemed them; and they will be as numerous as they were before.

Rapture Part 2, Enoch

Posted in Prophecy, Rapture with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2014 by paulthepoke

To the critic who says, “There is no such thing as a ‘rapture’.” Sorry, that is incorrect. For the very first ‘rapture’, go all the way back to the Book of Genesis. This event takes place before the flood of Noah. Genesis 5:21- 24 Enoch lived sixty-five years, and became the father of Methuselah. Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he became the father of Methuselah, and he had other sons and daughters.So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.

Becoming a father clearly resulted in a changed attitude for Enoch. At that point, the Hebrew grammar suggests Enoch responded to God and “walked with Him”. The name Enoch means “dedicate” per Strong’s Concordance. Enoch dedicated himself to God. Jewish tradition states Enoch was a preacher.

The meaning of the name of Methuselah is a bit of a mystery. Here are a couple of possibilities. One is “man of the dart” per Strong’s Concordance. A second is “when he is dead it shall be sent” per Jones’ Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names. The issue is the root of the name. Is it “mut” (death) or “mat” (man) in the original Hebrew?

Did Enoch know judgment was coming from God? Something caused Enoch to rethink his attitude. The ages of the people documented in Genesis as time points would suggest the flood began when Methuselah died. Methuselah lived the longest of any man, 969 years (Genesis 5:27). God allowed the greatest amount of time for humanity to repent of their actions before judgment came. But, when the time came He acted swiftly and decisively with a global flood.

Note, Enoch was not around during the course of the flood. He was taken off of the earth before the world wide judgment of God came. He was spared and did not have to go through the tribulation of that time.

for God took him. The meaning of “took” in Hebrew is “laqach”. Strong’s Concordance defines the word as: to take, take in the hand, carry along, carry away, take away, or to fetch.

Another definition is to take to or for a person, procure, get, take possession of, select, choose, take in marriage, receive, or accept. The concept of taking in marriage is noted in the Hebrew Old Testament word “laqach” and the Greek New Testament word “harpazo”. Language of a marriage is noted with Christ and His bride the Church throughout the New Testament. Terms for rapture in the Old Testament and the New Testament center around marriage and a groom taking or snatching his bride.

Enoch was not a Jew or citizen of the country Israel. Nations were not in existence before the flood. Is Enoch a type or foreshadowing of the rapture of the bride of Christ, the church? Is there a group of people who will be taken away before a worldwide judgment of God?

Some may say Enoch is just an Old Testament story and fable. The story of Genesis is confirmed in Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death; AND HE WAS NOT FOUND BECAUSE GOD TOOK HIM UP; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God.

Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
