Millennial Purity

Ungodliness not tolerated during the Millennial reign of Christ.

"In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land." (Zechariah 13:1,2)

Zechariah is a book on the Millennial Kingdom of Jesus Christ, and what it will be like to have Him as our Supreme Ruler and King. What a splendid time it will be when the evil that plagues the earth will be done away with! Here in these verses, clearly stated, idol worship will be done away with. False prophets and unclean spirits will be put out of the land of Israel.

We know that when all the Jews see Christ for the first time they will weep and turn to Him, a saved people. A people that will be priests and prophets of the Lord. They will preach the salvation of God to everyone.

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn." (Zech 12:10)

One amazing fact during the Millennial reign of Jesus, is the purity in which people serving God will live. We see in the world today many who profess to serve God but are false teachers, proclaiming lies and leading people from God into following idols, fables, and all manner of evil; set to do nothing but bring the wrath of God upon all unsuspecting and ignorant individuals.

But, bless God, during the one-thousand years of the Millennium, false teachers will not be tolerated. Only the truth of God will be allowed so long as Satan is bound up and caged from no more destroying this earth God has created for man.

"And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth." (Zech. 13:3)

The Jews, and others I am sure, who will be wholly serving God will not tolerate disobedience, nor any who try to preach falsehood in the name of God. Isn't it astounding that even a mother and father who hear their own child preach lies in the name of the Lord will not only rebuke him, but they will also put him to death. No preaching that is contrary to God's Word will be tolerated.

In this day and age we must so guard against the wicked schemes of the Devil, who was a murderer and a liar from the beginning. We must be in constant vigil lest we fall blindly into a snare and be ruined forever. There are so many distractions and temptations, let alone all the lies overwhelming us, if we hold fast, bless God, there will be a day for us to enjoy all truth, and nothing but rest in the truth of God.
