The Eternal State

21:1 to 22:5

    While the messianic Kingdom is the high point of prophecy in the TaNaKh, the Eternal State is the high point of prophecy in the B'rit Chadashah. Whereas much of the information in the first twenty chapters of the book of Revelation can also be found in the TaNaKh, the last two chapters of Revelation contain material that is new and was not revealed to the prophets of the TaNaKh.

    Genesis and Revelation mirror each other. Genesis, chapters 1 and 2 depicted a perfect order and Revelation, chapters 21 and 22 once again depict a perfect order.

    The Messianic Kingdom itself is only one thousand years long. Yet, according to the promises of God’s Covenant with David (Second Samuel 7:5-16), there was to be an eternal dynasty, an eternal Kingdom, and an eternal throne. The eternal existence of the dynasty is guaranteed because it ends in the eternal person of Jesus Christ. However, the eternal existence of the throne and the Kingdom must also be assured. The millennial Kingdom will end after a thousand years. But ADONAI’s Kingdom will continue into the Eternal State because Yeshua will continue to rule on David’s throne.474
