After Earth’s six thousand-year history, the King of Glory has come, and ushered in a perfect world. Continuing to fill in the picture, changed, converted, immortal saints will rule. Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom (DAN. 7:22); And he that overcometh, and keepeth My works until the end, to him will I give power over the nations; and will I grant to sit with Me in My throne… (REV. 2:26, 3:21).
Who will they rule? The children born of the small remnant Church hidden in the wilderness during the last THREE AND A HALF YEARS OF TRIBULATION. At first they will be few, but the ruling saints will have work enough preparing the spaces and living quarters for themselves and Yahshua Himself. Yerushalem will be rebuilt as the centre of divine and holy Government, and as a place to feast and celebrate at least once, perhaps three times a year.
And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of YHWH’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exulted above the hills; and all nations shall flow into it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, to the house of the Father of Yacob; and He will teach us His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the Law, and the word of YHWH from Yerushalem. And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks, nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more (IS. 2:1-3, MIC. 4:1-3).
We have covered substantially the cleansing to be undertaken by Father YHWH. What about the renovation or restoration of Eden?
Throughout the Great Tribulation and FINAL SEVEN YEARS a grandiose plan will be in progress. Earth will be changed back to a pre-flood condition. The great deluge of Noah caused immense oceans to form on our planet. Once the beds of smaller seas, huge deserts like the Sahara rose up and remained. Massive mountains and cordilleras were thrust up by the action of plate tectonics. World weather patterns were corrupted. Ice packs, snow drifts, permafrost, and tundra developed in the far north and south as a result of the collapsed vapour canopy surrounding the earth. At least a portion of these will have to go.
Why? To enable the multiplying population to cultivate more than the present ten percent of the planet that is agriculturally sustainable. Huge slices of the desert will be made green and fertile. Rocky, snow-swept mountains will be brought low while arid desert valleys are raised. The ice, snow, and permafrost will thaw. Gentle seasonal rainfall will be provided in precisely the correct places and balance. Every man will have their own patch of productive ground to farm and on which to keep his family.
The Word of prophecy says it all: Fear not, thou worm Yacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith YHWH, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. Behold, I will make you a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shall make the hills as chaff. Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shall rejoice in YHWH, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel. When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I YHWH will hear them, I the Father of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah (acacia) tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree (cypress) together; that they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of YHWH hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it (IS. 41:14-20).
Following these momentous events, suffering as a consequence of cold, famine, droughts, and other weather-based disasters will be alleviated: Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert (IS. 35:6).
ISAYAH 35 is filled with these awesome miracles: The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice even with joy and singing (v.1-2).
Huge earthquakes such as we read about in REVELATION and ZECHARYAH will help accomplish Earth’s rehabilitation: The mountains quake at Him, and the hills melt…rocks are thrown down by Him…with an overrunning flood He will make an utter end of the place thereof… (NAH. 1:5, 6, 8).
Additional acreage will be found when parts of the world’s oceans are reduced in size leaving their bare beds as dry land: And YHWH shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with His mighty wind shall He shake His hand over the river, and He shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod (IS. 11:15).
As a consequence of the Law being taught and it settling in men’s hearts, there will be perfect health and no sin: For YHWH is our judge, YHWH is our lawgiver, YHWH is our king; He will save us. And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity (IS. 33:22, 24).
The rewards for obedience to YHWH’s laws of love are clear: Then shall light break forth as the morning, and thy health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of YHWH shall be thy reward (IS. 58:8); For I shall restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith YHWH (YER. 30:17).
MAN WILL MULTIPLY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH AGAIN
Scripture speaks for itself about this one: For behold I am with you, and I will turn unto you, and you shall be tilled and sown: and I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded. And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and I will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am YHWH (EZE. 36:9-11).
Today many tribes of the earth remain illiterate and uneducated. Some do not even possess a written language. But Father promises His world will have a single pure language with total literacy and everyone educated in YaH’s Way: For then I will turn to the people a pure language, that they may call upon the name of YHWH, to serve Him with one consent (ZEPH. 3:9). Purity in speech and writing as promised means no more swearing, profanity, cursing, idiomatic slang, colloquialisms, or bad grammar, no corruption of speech in any form, and never again will linguists spend painstaking hours translating. Imagine the resultant beautiful literature, music, and artwork.
Imagine furthermore a time when we have horse-drawn carriages again instead of polluting automobiles, even fish survive in their watery home unmolested, children don’t go walkabout, and husbands love their wives enough to die for them but never have to.
