Is the return of the Fall of Adam and Eve prophesied for the end of the Millennial Reign? Lo, future Bible prophecy no one is talking about.
Solomon composed three thousand proverbs, and his songs numbered a thousand and five.1 Kings 4:32 (BSB)
Psalm 1 of the Psalms of Solomon:
“They became insolent in their prosperity . . . .“
I cried unto the Lord when I was in distress,
Unto God when sinners assailed.
Suddenly the alarm of war was heard before me;
I said, He will hearken to me for I am full of righteousness.
I thought in my heart that I was full of righteousness,
Because I was well off and had become rich in children.
Their wealth spread to the whole earth,
And their glory unto the end of the earth.
They were exalted unto the stars;
They said they would never fan.
But they became insolent in their prosperity,
And they were without understanding,
Their sins were in secret,
And even I had no knowledge of them.
Their transgressions went beyond those of the heathen before them;
They utterly polluted the holy things of the Lord.
19 If I speak of strength, lo, He is strong: and if of judgement, who shall set me a time to plead?Job 9:19-22 (KJVER)
20 If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.
21 Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would despise my life.
22 This is one thing, therefore I said it, He destroys the perfect and the wicked.
From the Book of Proverbs to the Song of Solomon within our standard biblical canon — to even the apocryphal Odes of Solomon — the foretelling of future prophecy proves to be stapled throughout the contents of these scriptures and sacred texts. The apocryphal Psalms of Solomon (specifically Psalm 1) show to be no different. After all, King Solomon himself wrote: The thing that has been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9 KJVER). In addition to, That which has been is now; and that which is to be has already been; and God requires that which is past (Ecclesiastes 3:15 KJVER). These very scriptures indeed prove to be the standard from which we can comprehend the infinite and prophetic divine nature of our Bibles.
According to Bible prophecy, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and other apocryphal texts, all the souls that ever existed — from Adam, to the last of the Saints and Elect of the Final Generation written of and for in the Book of Enoch — that believed on and/or received the Son of God (Jesus of Nazareth, 2,000 years ago) as Messiah, will rule and reign with Christ in His Second Coming for 1,000 years, in what is called the Millennial Reign; as Jesus’ precious sinless blood paid the price of redemption — for those willing to receive — from our inherent sin-nature from the Fall of Adam and Eve.
It is during the time of the Millennial Reign a new divine righteous seedline — rooted through the Son of God Himself (Christ’s Second Coming) — will be established [Isaiah 6:13, Isaiah 1:11, Isaiah 53:10]; as also fundamentally foretold in the accounts/prophecies of Abraham.
Without getting into too much theology — though the true details remain a prophetic mystery until they actually come to pass — the picture painted for the Millennial Reign is one of complete abundance, prosperity, rebuilding and regrowth; hence the parallel to King Solomon. This takes place after the prior desolations from God’s appointed wrath and judgement on a rebellious, wicked and perverse age. During this time, God’s holy Elect — called to replenish the earth — will have no need to fear the hindrance of Satan — who is prophesied to be bound and cast into the Bottomless Pitt for 1,000 years in temporary torment, before the true Great Consummation — or White Thrown Judgement. This is all generally mapped out throughout Revelation 20, for starters.
The interesting thing is, the average human lifespan will be restored or perhaps renewed, upon our long awaited redemption from the previously mentioned Fall. Studying the scriptures, it is led to believe, those called and deemed worthy to enter in the Kingdom, we will be seeing and walking with generations upon generations of their children’s children during the Millennial Reign of Christ!
20 There shall be no more there an infant of days, nor an old man that has not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.Isaiah 65:20-23 (KJVER)
21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them.
Through this basic understanding, we can now see how Psalm 1 of the Psalms of Solomon begins to take root within God’s prophetic timeline for future humanity. In this article we’ll be using Revelation 20 as a construct:
It can be discerned Psalm 1 of the Psalms of Solomon would fill in the unwritten gaps of Revelation 20:7-10, 7 And when the thousand years are expired, Sa’tan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever (KJVER).
Note how the above passage also takes us into the Resurrection of the Valley of Dry Bones and the Gog and Magog War of Ezekiel 37-39. Readers will easily discover this fully supports the context of the case in point; thus unlocking doors of prophecy seemingly only Psalm 1 of the Psalms of Solomon could evidently open. We see this in the opening lines of the psalm: I cried unto the Lord when I was in distress, Unto God when sinners assailed. Suddenly the alarm of war was heard before me;…
The understanding of bible prophecy begins to fill in the rest: I said, He will hearken to me for I am full of righteousness. I thought in my heart that I was full of righteousness, Because I was well off and had become rich in children. Their wealth spread to the whole earth, And their glory unto the end of the earth. They were exalted unto the stars; They said they would never fan. But they became insolent in their prosperity,… Besides the reference of a new prosperous seedline, already established above, note the extend of the Kingdom proclaimed in Solomon’s psalm completely runs parallel to standard biblical prophecy [Psalm 2:6-8 and Daniel 7:27 stand as mere examples].
The mystery being unlocked here though — i.e. what is not being told to us in Revelation 20 — is the story of how and why the established seed of the House of Israel is eventually “deceived”, as verses 8 and 10 state. Suddenly — when understanding all the Millennial context and prophetic background — Solomon’s Psalm 1 makes a lot of dreadful sense:
Since Revelation 20:6-8 states, 6 Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years. 7 And when the thousand years are expired, Sa’tan shall be loosed out of his prison. 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Ma’gog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea (KJVER), we are enabled to discern that there will be a 1,000 years of peace while Christ (within His Second Coming) will be ruling on the throne, in order for truth to firmly be established for the generations upon generations of future descendants.
This leaves the question whether the author of Solomon’s Psalm 1 is mirroring what would be the prophetic narrative of Christ towards the end of His Millennial Reign, or perhaps a future descending ruler — even preluding to a Third Coming of Christ and beyond! — which seems to be the case, given the piece of the puzzle Revelation 20:6-8 provides. Due to a prompt from the Holy Spirit, I believe it’s likely Matthew 1:17 would be stapled as the prophetic marker into such a timeline. It’s also possible even all narratives could be a likelihood, as Inspired scripture commonly reveals itself through multi-dimensional facets. Surely, as this revelation settles within our spirits throughout time, more and more insight will begin to unveil itself through the scriptures. —Line by line; precept by precept (note and discern Psalm 22:30 and Psalm 24:6 for example).
The continuing lines though of Solomon’s Psalm 1 evidently unlock the mystery of how the future children of Israel eventually become deceived: They were exalted unto the stars; They said they would never fan. But they became insolent in their prosperity, And they were without understanding,… It can be conceived having generations upon generations of descendants — whom never to know the wiles of Satan — would lead to such misfortune and inevitable corruption. This is actually a sad but true dynamic told throughout our Bibles! —Towers of Babel fall!
As another confirming witness, we see the remaining closing lines of Psalm 1 of the Psalms of Solomon prophetically echoed throughout Jeremiah 2, as the Psalm closes with, Their sins were in secret, And even I had no knowledge of them. Their transgressions went beyond those of the heathen before them; They utterly polluted the holy things of the Lord. The extent of the parallels found within the verses of Jeremiah 2 are astounding — not to mention heartbreaking: Go and cry in the ears of Je-ru’sa-lem, saying, Thus says the Lord; I remember you, the kindness of your youth, the love of your espousals, when you went after Me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown (Jeremiah 2:2 KJVER). …
We also see paralleling examples of the reproach of the Gog and Magog War in Psalm 79 (thanks and glory to the Holy Spirit for recently showing me!), Psalm 83, Psalm 89 — and generally all throughout the reverberation of scripture. The foreshadow of this revelation even bleeds into the apocrypha! — discern 1 Baruch for example. What’s interesting is the insightful redemptive ray of hope these scriptures bring us: So we Your people and sheep of Your pasture will give You thanks for ever: we will shew forth Your praise to all generations (Psalm 79:13 KJVER).
1 Baruch, Chapter 5 (RH Charles)
1 Put off, O Jerusalem, the garment of thy mourning, and affliction: and put
on the beauty, and honour of that everlasting glory which thou hast from
2 God will clothe thee with the double garment of justice, and will set a crown on thy head of everlasting honour.
3 For God will shew his brightness in thee, to every one under heaven.
4 For thy name shall be named to thee by God for ever: the peace of justice, and honour of piety.
5 Arise, O Jerusalem, and stand on high: and look about towards the east, and behold thy children gathered together from the rising to the setting sun, by the word of the Holy One rejoicing in the remembrance of God.
6 For they went out from thee on foot, led by the enemies: but the Lord will bring them to thee exalted with honour as children of the kingdom.
7 For God hath appointed to bring down every high mountain, and the everlasting rocks, and to fill up the valleys to make them even with the ground: that Israel may walk diligently to the honour of God.
8 Moreover the woods, and every sweet-smelling tree have overshadowed Israel by the commandment of God.
9 For God will bring Israel with joy in the light of his majesty, with mercy, and justice, that cometh from him.
This of course thus helps usher in the everlasting promise of the Kingdom we see throughout Bible prophecy. We see this verified and confirmed in the previously mentioned passage of reference of Ezekiel 37-39: 25 Therefore thus says the Lord God; Now will I bring again the captivity of Ja’cob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Is’ra-el, and will be jealous for my holy name; 26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid. 27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; 28 Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. 29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, says the Lord God (Ezekiel 39:25-29 KJVER).
Reflections of this theme can also be found echoed throughout the Book of Lamentations, The adversary has spread out his hand upon all her pleasant things: for she has seen that the heathen entered into her sanctuary, whom You did command that they should not enter into Your congregation (Lamentations 3:10 KJVER).
Amazingly enough, this theme continues throughout Psalm 2 and Psalm 17 of the Psalms of Solomon; giving yet more insight into what the standard biblical canon and previously mentioned apocrypha writings already provide!
Unfortunately though this all leaves us with more gaps of unanswered questions, between these verses, into humanity’s far distant future; likely not to be revealed to us at this current juncture in God’s timeline. To our intrigue though, Psalm 8 of the Psalms of Solomon shows to help fill in these gaps, echoing the past abominations of what is considered in the scriptures as Spiritual Egypt of our current closing age:
In secret places underground their iniquities were committed to provoke Him to anger;Psalm 8 of the Psalms of Solomon
They wrought confusion, son with mother and father with daughter;
They committed adultery, every man with his neighhour’s wife.
They concluded covenants with one another with an oath touching these things;
So the unanswered question remains, Could this revelation be the return of the Fall of Adam and Eve? Time will tell, but I personally believe this question is actually a bit more plausible than one may think.
First of all there is a peculiar scripture found of Genesis 5:2, implying Adam and Eve were not just individual people, but a whole tribe and/or nation, as a look into a concordance confirms. Whether this is true or not, amazingly this runs perfectly parallel with the context at hand. Surely, this is an angle to consider.
Personal Word from the Holy Spirit:
From a more personal level, I have received personal Words and revelation regarding this topic about over a year ago; as thus looking back in the light of this revelation, my own discernment pieces together, painting a more clear confident picture regarding this subject at hand. Of course, this testimony may not mean anything to the average reader, but still let the Lord and His resurrection power alone be glorified!:
The Lord did once give me a Word of revelation, making connection to King Solomon and the return of the Fall of Adam and Eve. I did cry out to Him, pleading if there was any way to prevent another Fall of Humanity? He left me with a comforting lesson: Not directly quoting, but the Word He gave me was, Without sin He is dead to us. Hence, if we lived without corruption, we therefore wouldn’t need Him; therefore we could not have a living active relationship with Him.
I found this meditation comforting, as I hope it may comfort you. As God always lives true to His Word, I eventually found this reasoning reflected in the above passage quoted from Job 9, found at the very top of this article.
I’d like to thank you to taking the time to read this article. I pray it is a blessing and edification — serving to build up and strengthen the Body of Christ!
24 The Lord bless you, and keep you.Numbers 6:24-26 (KJVER)
25 The Lord make his face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you:
26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.
