There are numerous passages that describe Israel’s physical and spiritual blessings in the new millennial kingdom (Gen. 12:2; 22:17). Here are my findings in ten points, beginning with the spiritual blessings.
1. God will bless them with forgiveness and cleansing. When all Israel is saved this blessing is the first one each Jew will experience as they are transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light and love. Micah 7:19 prophesize this wonderful event.
He will again have compassion on us;
He will tread our iniquities under foot.
Yes, Thou wilt cast all their sins
Into the depths of the sea.
2. God will bless them forever in their new relationship with Him. It will be a relationship of love and comfort and joy. And they will be contented in the fact that He possesses them and they possess Him. As Jeremiah 31:33 says,
“But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the Lord, “I will put My law within them, and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”
3. God will bless them and give them a blessed assurance in their new salvation. This is portrayed for us in Isaiah 12:1-3.
Then you will say on that day,
“I will give thanks to Thee, O Lord;
For although Thou wast angry with me,
Thine anger is turned away,
And Thou dost comfort me.
2 “Behold, God is my salvation,
I will trust and not be afraid;
For the Lord God is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation.”
3 Therefore you will joyously draw water
From the springs of salvation.
This salvation will never go away. It is eternal. I like the way Isaiah says it.
Israel has been saved by the Lord
With an everlasting salvation;
You will not be put to shame or humiliated
To all eternity.
4. God will bless them forever in His security and comfort. They will be blessed not only with houses and land and food and clothing, but with His presence and love.
5. God will bless them forever in their new knowledge of Him and His ways.
“And they shall not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares the Lord, “for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”
6. God will bless Israel forever with His new kingdom as they see His glory and majesty. God promised David that He would give him rest from all his enemies and establish his kingdom forever (2 Sam. 7:8-16). We saw this happen partially under Solomon’s reign, however, we will see it happen fully in the millennial kingdom and forever. Isaiah paints a beautiful picture of the blessings of this new kingdom.
The wilderness and the desert will be glad,
And the Arabah will rejoice and blossom;
Like the crocus
2 It will blossom profusely
And rejoice with rejoicing and shout of joy.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
The majesty of Carmel and Sharon.
They will see the glory of the Lord,
The majesty of our God.
7. God will bless Israel forever with peace and security. In 2 Samuel 7:10-11 (which is the Davidic covenant) God promises,
I will also appoint a place for My people Israel and will plant them, that they may live in their own place and not be disturbed again, nor will the wicked afflict them any more as formerly, 11 even from the day that I commanded judges to be over My people Israel; and I will give you rest from all your enemies.
I also like the familiar passage in Micah 4:3-4.
And He will judge between many peoples
And render decisions for mighty, distant nations.
Then they will hammer their swords into plowshares
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation will not lift up sword against nation,
And never again will they train for war.
4 And each of them will sit under his vine
And under his fig tree,
With no one to make them afraid,
For the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken.
8. God will bless Israel with new houses and cities that will never again be destroyed. When they rebuild they will not have to worry about invaders coming in to destroy. The Lord will protect them and keep them safe.
“Also I will restore the captivity of My people Israel,
And they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them,
They will also plant vineyards and drink their wine,
And make gardens and eat their fruit.
15 “I will also plant them on their land,
And they will not again be rooted out from their land
Which I have given them,”
Says the Lord your God.
9. God will bless Israel with renewed health and long life. In the millennial kingdom the curse on the ground and the atmosphere will be lifted. As a result, all crops and gardens will flourish, the air will be pure, and the water clean and refreshing. All people, especially Israel, will be so much healthier than they are today; and they will live for a long, long time. I think they will live for as long as they did before the flood. Isaiah 65:22 says, “For as the lifetime of a tree, so shall be the days of My people.” (Read also Isa. 30:23-26; Ezek. 36:28-30; Joel 2:23-27; Amos 9:13-15; Zech. 8:11-12.)
10. God will bless Israel with His knowledge and wisdom. If the Jews seem brilliant now without knowing the Lord (most of them now reject Him as the Lord), just imagine how much more brilliant they will be when they are personally taught by Him. They will not only be very smart, they will be very wise and will have a godly way about them. I think they will be great teachers and leaders and will be very compassionate and wise, just as Jesus is.
