« Then I was told, 'You are to prophesy again, this time against many different nations and countries and languages and kings ' » (Apocalypse of Saint John 10:11).

All these kingdoms, the head turns... Let's try to put some order in all this.

The Messianic Kingdom has nothing to do with the antichrist. The antichrist is a kingdom of beast, no Messiah. The Messiah-Christ has already come. But his victory over the world has not come yet. This is a Kingdom we expect. The Messianic Kingdom is a period of Holy Russia, when the Heaven will be partially connected with Earth, and there will be a very special mystical state of life. This is not a Kingdom of God on Earth, not a Heavenly Jerusalem, but something very close to it. Divine grace will be much stronger than on Mount Athos. This is a Kingdom of God, built on a single territory. Previously, this level of holiness had only been achieved by individual saints. In the future, it will be an entire people. The essence of the Messianic Kingdom consists in fulfilment of the words of prayer: « Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. »

In the Apocalypse of St. John, the Messianic Kingdom is described as follows:

15 Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and voices could be heard shouting in heaven, calling, 'The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.'

16 The twenty-four elders, enthroned in the presence of God, prostrated themselves and touched the ground with their foreheads worshipping God

17 with these words, 'We give thanks to you, Almighty Lord God, He who is, He who was, for assuming your great power and beginning your reign.

18 The nations were in uproar and now the time has come for your retribution, and for the dead to be judged, and for your servants the prophets, for the saints and for those who fear your name, small and great alike, to be rewarded. The time has come to destroy those who are destroying the earth.'

Let’s note that the kingdom of world is transformed into the Kingdom of God even before an antichrist phenomenon and the end of the world. In addition, at the end of the world, God does not need to absorb the earthly world in His Kingdom; on the contrary, the earth and all its evil deeds will burn and disappear. And there will be a new Heaven and a new Earth. Therefore, this is a period of absolute victory of Christ over the prince of this world. That's why the nations are in uproar. The minions of Satan are angry because their iniquity on earth came to an end. But this is not the end of the world. Otherwise, there would be no needs to rage, if it’s about the Last Judgment. But it is a beginning of period of the bowls of wrath.

So, the Messianic Kingdom is a kingdom of people in Christ the Messiah, it is a civilization of "the kings coming from the Orient." It is necessary to think spiritually here, not as if we are waiting for coming of Messiah in flesh. Christ has already come and he now lives in our heart. And now, we do not expect the end of the world after the Second Coming. We expect a rise of people at Mount Zion, at height where Heaven is connected with Earth and entire Christ lives in man.

We are expecting a realization of sobor fullness in Christ; we are expecting a holy life of our people, a beginning of the period of Philadelphia Church, the Church of fraternal love in Christ the Messiah. And then, we are waiting when the fullness of sobor holiness matures to our King-Conqueror phenomenon, in whom Christ will manifest in all His power.

This period will be filled with mysticism and miracles. But we must understand that this is not a Kingdom of God phenomenon. It will still be a terrestrial world, although partially transformed. The King comes as a personification of earthly militant Church of Christ. He comes to judgment, struggle and victory.

Thus, it should be distinguished and not confused:

The Kingdom of God is the Heavenly Jerusalem that will happen after the end of the world. This is an absolutely different world, completely purified from evil and suffering.
The kingdom of beast is a kingdom of antichrist. These are two incarnations of New World Order. We are now at the beginning of collapse of the first kingdom of beast. The second kingdom of antichrist will come after the collapse of Holy Russia.
The Messianic Kingdom is a Kingdom of Holy Russia, which will continue until the end of the world; this is a Kingdom of Mount Zion, led by an Orthodox King, the holy man in Christ. The Messianic Kingdom is a Kingdom of the Mission of Christ, the Kingdom of universal preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom. And Christ, in this period, will reign throughout the saints, dressed in Christ: «That is why they are standing in front of God's throne and serving him day and night in his sanctuary; and the One who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them» (Apocalypse of Saint John 7:15).

In addition, during the establishment period of Holy Russia, there will be a reconciliation of Jews with Christ. What will sink a stake through the heart of satan and will cause the end of the wars on earth (the swords will be hammed into ploughshares). Therefore, Holy Russia is also a realm of Messianic Judaism. In short, do there will be neither Jewish nor Russian, but one people of God.
