J E Bradburn The Millennial Reign of Elohim

When Elohim returns to earth He will initiate “the time of universal restoration that Jehovah announced long ago through His holy prophets.


Acts 3:21 (KJV) Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.”


Those prophets consistently assured ancient Israel and Judah that a righteous king would restore Jehovah’s Kingdom to earth. The prophets reveal the exact spot to which the Messiah Elohim Jehovah’s anointed King, will return.


Zechariah 14:4 (KJV) And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.”


Starting with Jerusalem as His capital city, He will expand His reign to the world.  Zechariah 14:9 (KJV) And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name One.”


Once Jehovah’s Kingdom is established in Jerusalem among the people of Israel, Elohim will ask representatives of all nations to come to Jerusalem to learn about Jehovah’s laws. He will summon them to Jerusalem to attend Jehovah’s annual Feast of Tabernacles. 


Zechariah 14:16 (KJV) And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.”


Leviticus 23:33—44 (KJV)

33 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,”

34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, ‘The fifteenth day of the seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord.’” [15th July for seven days]

35 On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.” [Convocation = a large formal assembly,) Sabbath.

36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.”

37 These are the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon His day:”

38 Beside the Sabbaths of the Lord, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the Lord.”

39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the Lord seven days: on the first day shall be a Sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a Sabbath.”

40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days.”

41 “And ye shall keep it a feast unto the Lord seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.”

42 Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths:”

43 That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”

44 And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of the Lord.”


Not all nations will immediately cooperate. Remember, Satan will have organised these same nations to fight Elohim at His return. They will not quickly accept Him even after Satan is bound. Therefore Elohim will judge>


Isaiah 2:4 (KJV) 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 anymore.” 


Early in Elohim’s reign, strong measures will still be necessary to convince most nations that He intends to enforce the laws of Jehovah. (This is the reason why the Kingdom of Jehovah is in two stages; first the Millennial for a thousand years, and only then do we progress to the Kingdom of Jehovah). How will He make clear, especially to nations who obstinately refuse to attend the Feast of Tabernacles? His means of communicating His message to them will be straight forward. He will simply demonstrate His control over the natural forces of earth.


Zechariah 14:17 (KJV) And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.”


The nations will quickly learn that their existence depends very much on Jehovah’s blessing. Good weather and bountiful crops are blessings from Jehovah. From this time forward only nations that obey Jehovah will reap those blessings. All others will not. Such a system will serve as a convincing argument. In time, all nations will respond.


Rewarding the saints

Elohim has promised to reward people who through the ages have faithfully served Him.  


Revelation 11:18 (KJV) And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.


Revelation 22:12 (KJV) And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”


This will be the part in His Kingdom: Revelation 20:6 (KJV) Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God [Jehovah] and of Christ [Elohim], and shall reign with Him a thousand years.


This future period is often simply called the Millennium (a 1000 year span). From the beginning of Elohim’s Millennial reign the faithful servants of Jehovah—including many who will have suffered severe persecution and martyrdom—will serve as the teachers and administrators of that wonderful world to come. They will assist Elohim in teaching the ways of peace and righteousness to the nations. This will fulfil Elohim’s promise.


Revelation 3:21 (KJV) To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne.”


Daniel 7:27 (KJV) And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him. (Dominions = (ruling power, authority, or control). does not plan to change the world single handed. At His coming His faithful servants will be immediately transformed  from flesh and blood into immortal spirit beings who can assist Him.  Paul explains:


1 Corinthians 15: 50—53 (KJV)

50 Now this I say, brethren, ‘that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit in-corruption.’”

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; ‘we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,’”

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised in-corruptible, and we shall be changed.”

53 For this corruptible must put on in-corruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”


Genesis 2:7 (KJV) And the Lord God [Elohim] formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”


Ecclesiastes 12:7 (KJV) Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God.”


Adham and Eve (Hebrew) where created by Elohim; before the fall of our parents, and lived forever as immortal beings in freedom, until that fateful day. image002 But then we were expelled from Heaven.  


Genesis 3: 23—24 (KJV)

23 Therefore the Lord God (ELOHIM} sent him forth from the Garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.”

24 So He drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubim’s [Angels], and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”  Elohim drove out the man Adham and his wife Eve.

The flaming sword is the sun spinning around the earth for over 6000 years just like a clock; and we are now in the end-days.

What is to come is for Elohim to sort out who wants to be with Him  Not much time left to check this out folks  for you and the family.

These transformed beings will sit with Elohim at His throne. They will serve with Him as teachers and administrators during His millennium reign.


The Restoration of all Israel

Long ago Jehovah has promised:



Jeremiah 23:5—6 (KJV)

5 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.”

6 In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is His name whereby He shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.”


The restoration of all the tribes of Israel as one nation under the reign of the Messiah [Elohim] is foretold by the prophets in several places of the Bible (KJV). Through Ezekiel Jehovah says: 


Ezekiel 37:21—22 (KJV)

21 And say unto them, ‘Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:’”

22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.”


And through Jeremiah:


Jeremiah 32:36—39 (KJV)

36 And now therefore thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel, “Concerning this city, whereof ye say, It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence;’”

37 Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in Mine anger, and in My fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:”

38 And they shall be My people, and I will be their God:”

39 And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear Me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:”


Since Elohim will establish Jerusalem as His capital, the first people to experience the effects of His rule will be the restored kingdom of Israel. As their king He will immediately establish a close working relationship with them:


Ezekiel 37:26—28 (KJV)

26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.”

27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”

28 And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.”


The people of Israel will play a necessary role in helping other nations implement Jehovah’s ways. Once Jehovah has forgiven their sins Elohim will begin using a humbled and repentant Israel to spread the knowledge of Jehovah’s Law to other nations. The whole of the earth will gradually come under the administration of a unified code of law, the law of Jehovah. Elohim will coordinate this as He reigns over the nations from Jerusalem. The nations of the earth will finally learn to obey Jehovah’s law.

Israel will help the nations learn Jehovah’s ways

Concerning the restored nation of Israel during Elohim’s millennial reign Jehovah says:


Jeremiah 33:6—9 (KJV)

6 Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.”

7 And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first.”

8 And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against Me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against Me.”

9 And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.”


As the people of Israel learn to follow Jehovah’s ways, their example will inspire other nations to seek the same way of life, and to want to receive the same blessings


Zechariah 8:22—23 (KJV)

22 Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord.”

23 “Thus’ saith the Lord of hosts; ‘In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, ‘We will go with you: for we have heard that Jehovah is with you.’”


Nations will understand that keeping Jehovah’s law produces benefits. They will come to Jerusalem to learn how they can apply their own lands.


Micah 4:2 (KJV) “And many nations shall come, and say, ‘Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God [Jehovah] of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord {Elohim] from Jerusalem.’”


The fruit of the correct knowledge

With Christ [Elohim] as King, Jerusalem will be the centre of learning for the nations. Jehovah’s covenant, in the Bible (KJV), will provide a solid foundation for the development of education and knowledge.


Isaiah 55:11—13 (KJV) 

11 So shall My word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”

12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”

13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”


Prosperity will increase while crime and corruption will cease.


Isaiah: 60: 17—18 (KJV)

17 For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness.”

18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.”


It takes much more than mere knowledge, however, to produce lasting peace and cooperation. A spiritual change is also necessary. It will be this spiritual change in the people of Israel that will inspire other nations to admire their way of life and want to emulate it.


Ezekiel 36: 22—27 (KJV)

22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, thus saith the Lord God; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for Mine Holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.”

23 And I will sanctify My great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, saith the Lord God, ‘When I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.’” [Profanity = language or behaviour that shows disrespect for God, or religion ]

24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.”

25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.”

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.”

27 And I will put My spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and ye shall keep My judgments, and do them.”


The spiritual restoration of humanity is the most important transformation that will occur during this millennial period when the world has been transformed. The spirit of Jehovah will enable people to willingly and enthusiastically obey Him from the heart.


Hebrews 8:10 (KJV) For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days,’ saith the Lord; ‘I will put My laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God [Elohim], and they shall be to Me a people:” [Elohim is Hebrew for the firstborn of Jehovah]


Elohim’s Spirit will phenomenally transform people. Obedience will be widespread; people will exhibit honourable leadership and enjoy a stable society: 


Isaiah 1:26 (KJV) And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.”


The changes will be permanent, lasting throughout subsequent generations:


Isaiah 60:21—22 (KJV)

21 Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified.”

22 “A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord [Elohim] will hasten it in his time.


Each new generation will carry on this this tradition of righteousness: People of the world over will notice and respect their example.


Isaiah 54:13 (KJV) All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.”


Isaiah 61:9 (KJV) And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.


Spirituality Spreads

As people from other nations see what happens in Jerusalem and its environments, they too will want to serve the living God Elohim.


Isaiah 56:6—7 (KJV)

6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve Him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be His servants, every one that keepeth the Sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of My covenant;”

7 Even them will I bring to My Holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon Mine altar; for Mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.”


Finally the barriers between Israel and other nations will fall. This will occur because all will eventually realise:


Galatians 3:8 (KJV) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there  is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Elohim.”


Physical Blessings

As people the world over begin to obey Jehovah, first by getting their spiritual priorities arranged, they will begin to experience unprecedented physical prosperity.


Amos 9: 13—14 (KJV)

13 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.”

14 And I will bring again the captivity of My people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.”


Isaiah compares this time to a perpetual feast with the best of everything: Detect blessing’s yet to come with this second inspiring inscription:


Isaiah 25:6 (KJV) And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.”


Isaiah 65:21—25 (KJV)

21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.”

22They 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.”

23They shall not labour 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.”

25The 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.”


This vision of the millennial reign of Elohim is not an illusion; but a promise of reality. Elohim will return to earth to spiritually transform His people and establish utopia, a paradise on earth. The combination of removing Satan’s influence, giving humanity Jehovah’s Spirit and teaching the world the laws and ways of Jehovah; will produce 1,000 years of peace and a society blessed beyond its wildest dreams. However, as incredible as this sounds prophecy reveals that an even more amazing period awaits mankind.
