Our world is dying. Have you noticed it?
-When you look at the pollution of our world,
-when you hear as we did this week that 10% (or 866 species) of the world’s trees are going extinct this decade,
-when the oceans are depleted of their abundant harvests of fish
-when the birds of Mexico City fall from the smoke laced skies in death
-when industrial wastes have cast a blanket of death across the farms and forests of eastern Europe . . .

But God has some great plans for the future of this planet. Have you studied them? The Lord is preparing to restore Paradise on Earth again. He has planned for a whole new world. Far beyond anything we could ever plan or do, He is preparing. Just a few of His plans are:
-a complete return to a global climate of mild weather with no storms, droughts, and catastrophes.
-A renewing of the abundant harvests of land and sea
-The return of animals to non-poisonous, non-carnivorous states
-The transformation of spiders and snakes to beauty and wonder
-And dozens of other promised changes until the world blossoms like a rose garden with no blight and no bugs.
Revelation 20 is the step between Earth as we know it and Heaven for Eternity. It declares that the golden age will arrive. The armies of the nations have been disbanded, and the great military academies have fallen into ruin and decay. The machinery of war has all been melted down and converted to the implements of peace. Jerusalem has become the world’s capital. The throne of David is there, and the twelve apostles are there judging the twelve tribes of Israel, for Israel rules the world. The millennial temple has been built to crown Moriah’s brow, and the nations of the earth come there to worship the living God. Prosperity is evident from pole to pole. Poverty is unknown. Every man has all that heart can desire. There are no prisons, no hospitals, no mental institutions, no barracks, no saloons, no houses of ill repute, no gambling dens, no homes for the aged and infirm. Such things belong to a past and lesser age. The bloom of youth is on everyone’s cheek, for a man is a stripling at a hundred years of age. Cemeteries are crumbling relics of the past, and tears are rare. The wolf and the lamb, the calf and the lion, the cow and the bear, the child and the scorpion, all are at peace. Jesus has come, and the Millenium is here. The golden age, so frequently heralded by the prophets of Israel’s past, has dawned at last, and the earth is filled with the knowledge of God. Jesus is Lord, and He rules the nations with a rod of iron. His reign is righteous, and the nations obey. The principles of the Sermon on the Mount are the laws of the kingdom, and men obey them because infractions are not allowed. Sin is visited with swift and certain judgment. The era lasts for a thousand years.
In Revelation 19:11- 20:10, we see in three distinct strokes, God’s mighty plan.
First of all 19:11-21 – THE RETURN of the King of Kings.
Secondly 20:1-3 – THE RESTRAINT of the adversary.
Finally 20:4-10 – THE RULE of the Messiah. Let’s plunge into the first phase – the return of the King of Kings.
