There is some confusion in our current day, regarding
the kingdom age, because
of the overuse of the term 'kingdom.' Ministers who
apply this term to salvation efforts
inadvertantly(we believe) confuse our age(church age)
with the future kingdom of JESUS.
While, no doubt, we Christians will have roles in JESUS'
kingdom here on earth, that period is not yet.
quote tells of some of the conditions that will exist
during that time yet to come.
Certainly, these things are NOT in place at present but
will surely come about when scheduled by the LORD.
Revelation quote gives a little more information about
the Kingdom Age though
less specific. We have to know that 1000 years with no
devil around should be pretty wonder-
-ful. Hence, the two verses mentioned actually cross
over and intertwine with each other.
As with many
things in the Bible, great detail is left out. We
believe this is because GOD wants to surprise His
children with good thing after good thing.
