Millennial Age (relating to)

Extracts and comments from Revelation Chp. 11


11:15                   

And (a)the 7th angel sounded; and there were great voices in Heaven, saying, "the world's Kingdoms and the reign of it is become our Lord's, and of His Christ; and He shall reign to the (b)Age and Ages".

 

11:16                   

(c)And the four and twenty elders, which sit before God on their thrones, fell on their faces and worshipped God.  

(b) The Authorised translates “for ever and ever”. Str. no. 165 gives the Greek word “AION” from a root “AEI” (Str. 104).  The root gives the meaning, “continued duration”, “ever”, “earnestly”, "always”, “ever”.  The manuscript word “AION”, gives; “an Age”, “perpetuity”, “course”, “eternal”, “forevermore”, “world without end”.  However; this word “AION” has a special meaning in the Jewish context, which is “A MESSIANIC PERIOD”!!  As the Lord’s (CHRIST’S) reign on Earth is also the Messiah’s reign (as Christ is Greek for Messiah) it is one and the same.  As Revelation is about restoring Israel (Jeshurun), defeating and vanquishing Satan, Jehovah Zebaoth’s wrath on the evil Nations, and re-establishing the Jewish order in Jerusalem outwards, it is clear which translated meaning applies.
