Is everyone going to “rule and reign” with Jesus Christ for all of eternity if they make it to heaven? Sadly the answer appears to be an emphatic “no”. However, if you are alive and reading this now, there is hope and an opportunity for you to change your eternity.
This is not a popular topic and quite frankly that’s okay. I cannot, of good conscience, know about these things and fail to share them with you. Some of you will choose not to accept it. This means, without any further research, you have chosen in your heart to accept the consequences should you be wrong. Amen. Eternity is a very very long time.
Over the last several years, the Lord has weened me from milk to meat. I have done the best I can to share the meat with every reader of this web site, and every listener of the Tribulation-Now Radio Show. At this point I am not only positive, I am sure beyond any shadow of a doubt. For me to doubt this information now, would be unacceptable. For me NOT to share this information with the readers of Tribulation Now would be unforgivable.
I must and I shall.
The Time is Now to Make the Change!!
I wish I had the time to write a really long article and share with you all the supernatural evidence the Lord has shared with me over the last 3 years regarding this topic. You can use the “search box” in the upper corner of this web page to search on the term “inheritance” and you will see proof that this is not the first time I have been introduced to this topic by God. But the Lord doesn’t throw everything at you all at one time. The fact of the matter is that some Christians (humans that we are) do not have the spiritual capacity to embrace some of the more advanced Kingdom concepts. This is fine. We are not all equal here on earth, and indeed we will not all be equal in heaven. Amen?
And there’s no possible way for any of us to know for sure where we are going to land when we get there. When one studies the topic of “Inheritance and Rewards” (1 Cor. 3:12-15) it is a daunting study and takes time. If you are unwilling to “take up your cross” for Jesus and “get out there” and “be ye doers of the word, not just hearers” (James 1:22), then you might not make it as a “ruler” in the Millennium Kingdom.
HOWEVER there are many many ways to be a “doer”!! There are people who have “intercessory prayer” ministries and pray and pray for other people all day long. Not everyone has to move to Africa and preach to tribesman. There is hope for all of us to become contributors to the Kingdom of Jesus. Get yourself and t-shirt with “JESUS” printed on it and start handing out flyers. Praise God I even have “Rapture is Imminent” flyers here on this web site which you can start handing out even today.
GLORY TO JESUS!!
Why not get involved with a Prison Ministry? If you live in the United States, you can use Google and search on “Prison Ministry [state]”. If you live in New Jersey, type in “Prison Ministry New Jersey” and start making telephone calls. I recently got involved with a prison ministry here in Florida called Passion for Prison and it is the most moving, wonderful thing I have done in a long time. YOU CAN DO IT!
Here below is an excerpt from the book shown in the picture above. I am hand-typing in the introduction for you to read. You need to take this to heart. Now is the time.
The 1,000 Year Reign of Jesus Christ, Will You Make It??
The Bible clearly testifies that a 1,000-year reign of Jesus is scheduled to occur on the earth. Since the degree of accuracy for biblical prophecy is so high that it is almost mathematically impossible to describe, it behooves every man, woman, and child on the earth to heed this advanced notice and prepare for this coming kingdom. You can be included, or you can miss it. Admittance is availed to each and every person by God’s grace, but every candidate must prove him- or herself worthy for this kingdom. Rest assured, it is coming, whether you are ready or not.
For many years my theology did not even contain a cubicle into which I could file this doctrine. The extent of my understanding concerning the future was that if I believed in Jesus then I would go to heaven, either after I died or at the rapture of the church. I thank the Lord for that much understanding and I still believe that, but before the new heavens and earth are going to be made, there will be a 1,000-year kingdom coming to this earth.
Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
This biblical truth has been buried and hidden out of sight from Christianity since about A.D. 350, but now the Holy Spirit is endeavoring to restore this truth into prominence, because the knowledge of how to enter this kingdom will fuel commitment within Christians like no other subject in the Bible. It did it for the early church, and it will do it for the church of the last days, too.
The Roman emperor Constantine (along with the theologian Augustine) hid this truth by not teaching about this period of time and stating that it was allegorical, and not literal truth. This was an assault on the kingdom of Christ — an attempt to negate and deny the prophecy that a future kingdom would come and crush all other kingdoms. It is time to get out our shovels and dig this gem up from the rubble of confusion and deception, and let the whole Word of God be known about the prophetic promises that will be imparted to those who are faithful in serving the Lord. This is the incentive the Holy Spirit is seeking to give His people — to keep them motivated during this time of harvest and apostasy.
This truth about the 1,000-year reign of Jesus on the earth is called the “gospel of the kingdom,” and it is the next step beyond the “gospel of grace” – so abundantly known and taught. Jesus and John preached this gospel of the kingdom and passed it on to the apostles and prophets of the early church. This was the mainstay of the early church and the impetus that moved Christianity faster during that time than in any other in the history of the church. It is the good news (gospel) of the 1,000-year reign of Christ on the earth that will include those individuals who are committed to the cause of Christ, which is building God’s kingdom on the earth.
This is indeed good news! During this 1,000-year period on the earth, Satan will be chained (Revelation 20:1-3)
Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished.
This will be life on the earth the way God has always planned it. It will be “Thy Kingdom come,” and “Thy will (will) be done on earth as it is in heaven,” because Jesus will be here as King to make it so. Jesus will live and reign as King of the world from Jerusalem; King David will be king over the Jews (Ezekiel 34:23-24) the 12 apostles will rule over the 12 tribes of Israel (Matthew 19:28); and Jesus’ faithful disciples will rule over the cities and towns around the world (Luke 19:17-19). This will be life on a devil-free planet! It will be Satan-free (Revelation 20:1-4), poverty-free (Psalm 72:2), war-free (Isaiah 2:4), siness-free (Isaiah 35:5-6) and hunger-free (Amos 9:13). It will be a mosquito-free, ant-free picnicking paradise.
As exciting as this truth is, and as good as the news is that you can make this kingdom, the other side of the coin is that you can miss it, too.
But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
All Christians have been given eternal life by the grace of God — the right to live in the new heavens and earth (Revelation 21:7). Access into the millennial kingdom, however, will be granted only to those who have labored in service for Christ during their life on earth. There will be many Christians who will view this kingdom from the outer darkness (Matthew 22:13-14). They will weep due to their sorrow of not participating in it. They will gnash their teeth in anger, either for not knowing about it so they could have been in on it, or for not living according to the standards required to qualify for it.
Every Christian will go to the judgment seat of Christ and will hear either:
Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’
Matthew 25:26a, 30
Thou wicked and slothful servant … cast ye the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
There is a 1,000-year reign of Jesus Christ coming to the earth. Will you make it or miss it? It is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Yes, it is the Father’s will for you to be in that kingdom; but be not deceived — what you sow is what you will reap (Galatians 6:7). The Father will give to each man his rightful due, for He is no respecter of persons.
1 Peter 1:17-18
And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear;
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. 25 But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality.
The purpose of this book is to motivate you to strive for the masteries and to show you how to enter this kingdom. Our study is laced with the promise of being in the kingdom and yet it also contains the fear (of the Lord) of missing it, too. Be well assured that this kingdom is coming to the earth and will exist, either with us or without us. There is a 1,000-year reign of Jesus coming to the earth. Will you make it, or will you miss it? What you do today determined the answer to that question.
Inheritance and Rewards Primer
Here is a You Tube video series from Chuck Missler. He has an advanced teaching on inheritance and rewards which his wife Nancy Missler assembled entitled “The Kingdom, Power, Glory“. I assure you this author, Dale M. Sides is NOT alone in this scripture backed belief. In fact another author, Joseph C. Dillow wrote the book “Reign of the Servant Kings” which backs these concepts 100%. This work by Missler is just “freshman level” information but may help you to understand this is fact, not fiction.
Summary in Jesus Name
I have no idea if I will make the cut for the millennial kingdom but I sure am going to give it my best shot. Amen? The time to jump on this bandwagon is NOW. I am frustrated and upset that so many pastors and teachers out there will not teach on this information for fear of upsetting “the flock” or their fellow pastors. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. We MUST tell people that their behavior on earth is critical toward their rewards in Heaven!!!
“And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.
Isn’t it a terrible irony that the very pastors that do not teach this information are almost certainly going to make it, but the sheep (congregation) are the ones that will “miss out”. Maybe the Lord will take into consideration that fact that these pastors neglected to teach these things … I don’t know. But it sure frustrates me to NO END that we have been robbed like this.
Praise Jesus we still have time left on earth to change our eternity and do wonderful things for our King Jesus Christ.
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
… BE BLESSED IN JESUS NAME
