Tectonic Chaos – Chapter 31 – Millennial Preachers and Survivors
From among the one-third of Jews that survive the tribulation period, God will select ministers to proclaim the same Word of God to the lost during the millennium, which the Gentile age ministers preached before them during the Church age.
Zechariah 13:8,9 – And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.  And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.
Isaiah 61:4-6 – And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.  And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.  But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.
These Israelite ministers will, as we do today, preach the Christ of the Old and New Testaments, but they will also proclaim the Christ of the tribulation period and millennium as fulfilled. They will preach the book of Revelation through chapter 20 as we preach the Old Testament today – it will be history to them.
There will be a tremendous period of worldwide reconstruction of an earth devastated by God’s judgment on all mankind during the 7 seals and 7 trumpets, and by his wrath on the lost in the 7 vials of wrath that follow, and the Jewish nation will become most powerful nation in the world. A percentage of the Gentiles will also survive the tribulation period, which I suspect may all be under the age of 20, and I would guesstimate they might number about one-sixth of the current world population, say, one billion. However, I can only say for certain that “some” Gentiles will survive, as the following Scriptures attest.
Isaiah 61:6 – But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.
Zechariah 14:16 – And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
Zechariah 8:20-23 – Thus saith the Lord of hosts; It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities:  And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts: I will go also.  Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord.  Thus saith the Lord of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.
Micah 4:1-3 – But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.  And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.  And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
I do not know what criteria the Lord will use in bringing individual Gentiles through the tribulation period, but these Scriptures testify very loudly that he will do it. I am of the opinion that anyone who has heard the gospel before the end of the tribulation period, and failed to accept Christ as Savior, will not be one of the Gentiles in the millennium.
