The Redistribution of the Land of Israel in the Millennial Kingdom

Studying Bible Prophecy

001

After the land is enlarged and given its new and promised borders, it would seem logical that Jesus will next order the redistribution of the land.  Ezekiel 48:1-29 gives us the outline of how it will look (see map above).

The land will be divided into three portions.  In the northern section the land will be allotted to the tribes of Dan, Asher, Naphtali, Manasseh, Ephraim, Reuben, and Judah, in that order from north to south (Ezek. 48:1-7).  In the southern section the land will be allotted to Benjamin, Simeon, Issachar, Zebulun and Gad, in that order (Ezek. 48:23-27).

The section in the middle will be known as the holy district. As you see on the map below

in the center of this area will be a square shaped parcel of land, 25,000 cubits square (or 8 1/3 miles square).  This area, as you see, is divided into three sections. …

The Borders of Palestine Will Be Enlarged In the Millennial Kingdom

Studying Bible Prophecy

 

 001

 

We have been talking about the setting up of the millennial kingdom.  After the government is put in place, I think the second thing Jesus will do is order the enlargement of Palestine to its promised dimensions.  The first mention of this land covenant is in Genesis 15:18.

On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying,

“To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates:

 

This description, as you can see, is quite general and a bit vague.  A more specific border description is in Numbers 34:1-12.  It is the description that was given by the Lord to Moses just before the Jews entered the land.  Well, wouldn’t you know it, the border description in Ezekiel 47:13-20, though worded a bit differently, is exactly the same. 

Ezekiel 47:13-20

Thus says…

The Millennial Government: Who Will Sit On The Throne, David Or Jesus Christ?

Studying Bible Prophecy

017

The government in the millennium will be a theocracy—a government ruled by God.  But as with all things on the earth, God the Father delegates His rulership to God the Son.  Daniel 7:13-14 shows us this delegation.

I kept looking in the night visions,
And behold, with the clouds of heaven
One like a Son of Man was coming,
And He came up to the Ancient of Days
And was presented before Him.
14 “And to Him was given dominion,
Glory and a kingdom,
That all the peoples, nations, and men of every language
Might serve Him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion
Which will not pass away;
And His kingdom is one
Which will not be destroyed.

 

Whether Jesus Christ will actually occupy a throne on the earth in Palestine, some believe that, though Christ will reign over the earth as our King, the resurrected and glorified…

Setting Up the Millennial Kingdom: In Five Stages

Studying Bible Prophecy

030

 

We don’t know exactly how the millennial kingdom will be set up—by what method and how long it will take.  But we do have some details in the scriptures of some key parts of the kingdom and what that kingdom will look like.  Here are five stages to the set up of the kingdom:

 

1.  The government will be installed. The government in the millennium will be a theocracy—a government ruled by God. But as with all things on the earth, God the Father delegates His rulership to God the Son.  Daniel 7:13-14 shows us this delegation.

“I kept looking in the night visions,
And behold, with the clouds of heaven
One like a Son of Man was coming,
And He came up to the Ancient of Days
And was presented before Him.
14 “And to Him was given dominion,
Glory and a kingdom,
That all the peoples…
