What will His Kingdom be like?  Let us consider 10 things that will be true during the Kingdom:

1)  Christ will be King over all the earth, and He will rule from Jerusalem for 1000 years (Zech. 14:9; Dan. 7:14; Isa. 2:3: Rev. 20:1-7)Christ’s government will be a Theocracy, a government ruled by God, specifically, Jesus Christ (Jn. 1:1, 14). 
2)  Christ will be the perfect Ruler.  He will rule in total righteousness (Isa. 11:4-5). 
3)  His government, like ours, will have three "branches."  The difference is, He will be all three!  Isaiah 33:22 says, "For the LORD is our Judge (Judicial), the LORD is our Lawgiver (Legislative), the LORD is our King (Executive); He will save us." 
4)  There will be peace on earth; there will be no war (Ps. 46:9).  There will be no need of a military (Isa. 2:4).  The Prince of Peace will rule (Isa. 9:6)!
5)  All men will be taught the truth about God, by God (Isa. 2:3; 11:9).  There will be no need to preach the Gospel, or to send missionaries (Jer. 31:34)! 
6)  Satan will not be around to cause trouble.  "And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season" (Rev. 20:2-3).  
7)  All barren lands, even deserts, will become fruitful (Isa. 32:15; 35:1-2).  God will provide all the water necessary for this to happen (Isa. 35:6-7)! 
8)  Sickness and disease will be cured (Mt. 4:23-24; Isa. 33:24).  There will be no sickness or unforgiven sin there (Isa. 33:24).  There will be no deafness or blindness (Isa. 29:18; 35:5-6)! 
9)  People will live for hundreds of years (Isa. 65:20).  Although there will apparently be some who die due to unrepentant sin, even their death at 100 will seem like the death of a child (Isa. 65:20). 
10)  There will be a change in the nature of animals (Isa. 11:6-9; 65:25)!

Do you remember reading about Creation in Genesis 1:1-2:25?  Well, the Word of God says that Christ's 1000 year kingdom will be just like the Garden of Eden (Isa. 51:3; Ezek. 36:35; Joel 2:3)!  That sounds wonderful to me!  And just think, according to Revelation 5:10, all born again believers will play an important role in Christ's Kingdom:

"And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth."
