|Will there be a literal Kingdom of Heaven and what will it be like?|
There will be a literal kingdom here on earth with Yeshua reigning from His throne in Jerusalem (Isaiah 9:6,7; Daniel 2:44-45; 7:13; Zechariah 14; Revelation 17:8-18). The redeemed will come back with Yeshua to help Him set up the kingdom and reign over the nations (Zechariah 14:1-5; Jude 14; Revelation 1:4-5).
At the time the Antichrist is destroyed, Satan will be bound for 1,000 years (Revelation 20:2,7) and Yeshua will reign on earth during that time with a theocratic government. This will not be a monarchic, democratic, or autocratic government but one in which God will reign supreme through our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 25:31-46; Luke 1:32-35; Revelation 11:15). God will also rule through the redeemed from Adam to the millennium. All Saints that have ever lived will be judged and rewarded according to their deeds done while on earth during the days of their flesh (body) and will be given places and positions of leadership according to their rewards.
The Millennial Kingdom will be worldwide and will not be governed any longer by man's laws but rather by God's perfect wisdom. This will be a time of absolute peace and pleasure. All nations that exist at Yeshua's return will be judged according to their treatment of Israel as a determination whether or not they will be permitted to enter into the Millennial Kingdom (Daniel 7:9-14; Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation11:15). It must be noted there will still be sinners here during the millennium (Isaiah 2:2-4; Micah 4:3; Zechariah 14:16-21) that will not be completely purged until the end of the millennium, when Satan is loosed for just a short season then destroyed by God and cast into the eternal lake of fire prepared for him and his followers.

The geographical borders of Israel will be re-established as had been earlier promised by God to His chosen people and will extend from the Mediterranean Sea on the west to the River Euphrates on the east, taking in all of the Arabian Peninsula with most of Syria and the countries south and east of Palestine. The nations of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia will most likely be eliminated with these new boundaries for Israel, God's Chosen People (Genesis 15:14-18; Exodus 32:13; Deuteronomy 4:40; Joshua 14:2-9; Ezekiel 47:13-23).
The Jews will
have a temple during the millennial reign located at the site where Solomon, Zerubbabel, and Herod
built their temples (Zechariah 6:12-13; Ezekiel
40:5-48:35). There will be a literal river flowing out form this temple
eastward and from the south side of the temple alter in Jerusalem. Half of these living waters will flow into the Dead Sea and
All people will
have the knowledge of the Lordship of Yeshua as described by Isaiah 11:9; Zechariah 8:22-23; and
Habakkuk 2:14. Satan will be bound and there will be no tempter
on earth as we enter an era of universal peace and all needs
will be fulfilled. There will even be a
