Who Will Be There

Millennium Superworld

Chapter 5: Who Will Be There?

“Sinners in Zion are struck with horror and fear seizes on the godless. Which of us can live&hellip ?
“—He who acts with integrity, who speaks sincerely and rejects extortionate profit, this man will dwell in the heights, in a citadel built on a rock, bread will be given him, he shall not want… ”

—Isaiah 33:14-16, Jerusalem Bible

“Thou… shalt call his name JESUS.
“He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest. and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David.
“And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end”

—Luke 1:31-33

“And the Lord shall be king over all the earth in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one

—Zechariah 14:9

Who will live during the grand, glorious coming age? Who will be there?

This is the question that has been echoed and re-echoed through the centuries by every earnest seeker after the knowledge of God: “Alas, who shall live when God doeth this!” (Num. 24:23).

What a question to ask!—and what a question to answer with the sure and unfailing Word of the Lord God!

We take our present lives more or less for granted. We are here, and we do not give too much thought to whether our presence in this world is wanted or unwanted. But life during the Millennium will be different. Anyone who survives to see the dawning of that thousand-year day will thank God for the privilege that is his, for he will have witnessed the destruction of hosts of the rebellious, warlike element.

All who are living when the new administration takes office and the Millennium begins will be living with the express permission and consent of the great King Himself. They will be living either by right of God-given reward, or because the King and His conquerors in mercy spared their lives when they showed a willingness to cooperate with the new order. All who live will not be perfect, nor will they all be wholehearted servants of God, but they will have this in common: they will be willing supporters of the new regime; all opposition will have been eliminated.

Who will be there?
