QUESTION (1912-Z)–3–Will there be accidents and death during the Millennium aside from those of sinners going into the Second Death?

ANSWER.–While the reign of Christ will be a reign of righteousness unto life, we are not to understand that Adamic death will be at an end as soon as Messiah has begun His reign, for it is stated that He must reign until He has put down all enemies. (`1 Cor. 15:25,26`.) It is understood that people will be more or less in the Adamic death during the thousand years and will rise gradually out of Adamic imperfection and death to the perfection of the human nature. We should remember that the Kingdom as it will be established in the beginning of the Millennial Age will consist of the New Jerusalem–that is, the glorified Church, of which Christ is the Head. (`Rev. 21:1-8`.) During the thousand years the world will be coming into accord with this arrangement. For all such as will come into harmony there will be a blessed arrangement by which they will be protected from any penalty for imperfections. We may reasonably suppose that after perfection is reached there will be no more accidents, just as we have reason to suppose that in heaven there is no necessity for surgeons, doctors, ambulances, etc. „Nothing shall hurt or destroy in all God’s holy mountain (Kingdom).” (`Isa. 11:9`.) God’s will shall be done on earth as it is done in heaven. We read that there shall be no more sighing and no more crying and no more dying.
