The Millennium

        But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. (II Peter 3:10)


        In this verse, the Earth has just been thoroughly cleansed by fire, right down to even the elements. There is no longer flesh of any kind left on the Earth, or anything else for that matter. No America, no Europe, no China or Russia, no malls, no Green Bay Packers, no Mountain Dew, nothing. "I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?" (Luke 12:49).


        Fire is how the second Heaven and Earth age ends, as we read again in Zephaniah 1:18: “Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of His jealousy: for He shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.”


        In Malachi 4:1 we read that it will burn like an oven: "For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven...."


        Remember, it's the wicked God is mad at, and this punishment by fire is intended for them, not God's followers.


      


        We read not only of this fire of God's again, in Isaiah 66:15, but also that God will arrive on Earth in a vehicle described as a chariot like a whirlwind: "For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire."


        The tools of God's judgment on the wicked will be by fire and His sword, the word of God.


        This cleansing comes after the tribulation and upon the return of Jesus, as we read in Matthew 24:29-30:

29. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

  1. 30.And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven.


        The stars will not give off their light because the brightness of the presence of Jesus will outshine them. God is going to clean house in Heaven and the various competing powers of Heaven will be shaken right down to the Earth.
