Christ's economic system

  1. Been wondering what it will be like here on Earth after Christ returns and sets up His Kingdom. Will the worlds' economies be allowed to exist in whatever form they were before Christ arrived? Doubtful. Will the world economies take on a Jewish model? Socialism? Communism? Only under Christ could communism work. I figure the Jewish model, most likely. Though I wonder if Christ will allow the accumulation of wealth. This too I doubt.
  2. I think that under Christ, there would be no money at all. People would work because God told them to, and it is really hard to argue with God, especially when He's right in front of you.

  3. I have given some thoughts about this recently. Values, in the economic sense will undoubtedly change. I wonder on why Christ will need an iron fist to rule believers.....The values of things like money have been satan based almost from time immemorial. Even now, with ATM's, etal - the money we use today is illusionary and based essentially on nothing. With "glorified" bodies, I wonder what we will eat. I wonder what abilities they will allow us. My conclusion is that it is almost impossible to guess what that time will be like. Certainly not like now....where the majority of $$ is spent on wars and destruction and porn and evil. Everyone will have enough to eat, and live freely and work at things they love.

  4. The Bible says that God will do away with both the stomach and food.
  5. Hmmm....that positively will eliminate any eliminations....:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
    Juk and Mykuhl say Amen and like this.
  6. Lol! True
  7. But Christ broke bread with His disciples post crucifixion.
  8. I have some thoughts on this as well: first do you guys believe that Isaiah 65:17-25 is describing the millennium? If so then it is interesting to note verse 20: No more shall an infant from there live but a few days, nor an old man who has not fulfilled his days; for the child shall die one hundred years old, but the sinner being one hundred years shall be accursed".
  9. To me, it seems so unfair, not living in a straight forward and deception filled world. And I think that Christ's Millenial Kingdom will harken back to a world before Adam & Eve fell. They had glorified bodies and when they fell, that was the nakedness that shamed them. They ate from fruit bearing I'm thinking vegetarian.

  10. Yep. I imagine vegetarian too. With no more seas= lotsa farmland?
  11. As I read it, the child will have to choose at age 100 for or against Christ/God....if he/she chooses Christ, they live on.
  12. Hmmm interesting. So do you think that these verses refer to the coming millennium then?
  13. Re-establishment of the firmament will allow people to age much more slowly and to live much longer. Hence, no more seas.
  14. 1 Corinthians 6:13 KJV
    Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
  15. Well, since those in glorified bodies will not be in need of food, that will make it easier to feed those left.

  16. You notice it says meats? Not vegetables? It could mean we get back a different digestive system. Still, I like the idea of no more constipation or diarhea (grin) ((ok ok no more illness more pain....)) (((Maranatha)))

    @Muykuhl - as i recall, I do think Isaiah is talking about the Millenial but I would have to review the verses again....and I will...right after IZombie
  17. It said that God will do away with bellies as well.
  18. Yes..and but I think the meaning could be a different digestive system/stomach....what's inside. There will be no more animals eating other predators. Their digestion will change also. I forgot where I read/saw it (possibly here)....when we come back with Christ, we will be given the flying horses we ride. So animals and children will still be part of the world.

  19. I usually like to read before and after for added context (and at the time I read the post - the online bible wasn't working but now it is) but on the verses you quoted..Yes, I think it refers to the Millenial Kingdom. It's been awhile but I read somewhere that the emphasis was on the fact that children would not be stillborn or live only a few days but would live at least to 100 years. And then would have to choose either for God or against. I'm assuming that this would be the seed of the later war after 1000 years when judgement day would come. I'm assuming that is why Satan is bound for that 1000 years.
  20. Perhaps this is the reason then that Christ will have to rule with an iron fist, because these things will be taking place.
