Milllennial Sinners-Where Do They Come From?
Bible Questions Answered:
“How can there be sinners in the Millennium, when Christ has cast out all the goats, the sinners?”
William/ Victoria, Queensland Australia
Matthew 25:31-46 NLT
31 When The Son Of Man comes in His glory with all of His angels, He will sit on His royal throne.
32 The people of all nations will be brought before Him, and He will separate them, as shepherds separate their sheep from their goats.
33 He will place the sheep on His right and the goats on His left.
34 Then The King will say to those on His right, “My Father has blessed you! Come and receive the kingdom that was prepared for you before the world was created.
35 When I was hungry, you gave Me something to eat, and when I was thirsty, you gave Me something to drink. When I was a stranger, you welcomed Me,
36 and when I was naked, you gave Me clothes to wear. When I was sick, you took care of Me, and when I was in jail, you visited Me.”
37 Then the ones who pleased The Lord will ask, “When did we give you something to eat or drink?
38 When did we welcome you as a stranger or give you clothes to wear
39 or visit you while you were sick or in jail?”
40 The King will answer, “Whenever you did it for any of My people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for Me.”
41 Then The King will say to those on His left, “Get away from Me! You are under God’s curse. Go into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels!
42 I was hungry, but you did not give Me anything to eat, and I was thirsty, but you did not give Me anything to drink.
43 I was a stranger, but you did not welcome Me, and I was naked, but you did not give Me any clothes to wear. I was sick and in jail, but you did not take care of Me.”
44 Then the people will ask, “Lord, when did we fail to help you when you were hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in jail?”
45 The King will say to them, “Whenever you failed to help any of My people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you failed to do it for Me.”
46 Then Jesus said, “Those people will be punished forever. But the ones who pleased God will have eternal life.”
Yes, our Lord, begins His Millennial rule by cleansing the land of sin!
Well if there is no sin in the land how can Revelation 20:7-9 be true ?
Revelation 20:7-9 NLT
7 At the end of the thousand years, Satan will be set free.
8 He will fool the countries of Gog and Magog, which are at the far ends of the earth, and their people will follow him into battle. They will have as many followers as there are grains of sand along the beach,
9 and they will march all the way across the earth. They will surround the camp of God’s people and the city that His people love. But fire will come down from heaven and destroy the whole army.
10 Then the devil who fooled them will be thrown into the lake of fire and burning sulfur. He will be there with the beast and the false prophet, and they will be in pain day and night forever and ever.
Where did this hoard of sinners come from?
During the millennium a 1,000 year period, these were born to the “sheep,” those who have been accepted by The Lord. (The Sheep)
If we suppose that 40 years is a generation then there will be no less than 25 such generations in the Millennial Kingdom. Time for many many children to be born, and come to adulthood.
Though they were raised in righteousness, many will rebel in sin, falling evil prey to Satan.
Isaiah 65:18-25 KJV (The Millennium a blessed time of Christ rule on earth.)
18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of My people, and Mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of The Lord, and their offspring with them.
24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, saith The Lord.
Sinners in the Millennium? Yes. Adam and Eve though sorry for their sin, gave birth to Cain, a murderer.
Born to Godly parents, yet their offspring will live in rebellion, and after the 1,000 years have expired, and Satan is loosed from his prison, they will be easy prey for him.
Can Godly parents have godless children? Yes. It must be remembered that The Lord Jesus and His saints are ruling and reigning from Jerusalem, for this 1,000 year reign of peace on earth. But even though Christ Himself reigns, still there will be the ungodly.
Isaiah 65:20 KJV
“...but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.
