The world’s history is one of misrule, injustice, instability, disease, war, suffering, untold misery for countless numbers of people. But it didn’t have to be this way. And it won’t be this way in the future, after the return of Jesus Christ. He is coming to rule the earth in righteousness and justice. His government will be different from that of any other on earth since the time of Adam and Eve.
Learn more of what prophecy reveals about how the world will be different, and better by far, under the reign of Jesus Christ after his return.
Since Adam and Eve, in the Garden of Eden, chose the rulership of Satan in the Garden of Eden over that of God, their Creator, human beings have suffered many calamities and sorrows.
Yet, God has also greatly blessed humanity, as well, especially the descendants of Abraham in the latter days. The apostle James, a half-brother of Jesus Christ, wrote, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning” (James 1:17).
We may look around us and see all kinds of evils, and things to be concerned about, but we also need to be mindful of our blessings.

I’m going to show you from the Scriptures, that testify of God’s intervention in human affairs, how God is the source of specific blessings. Those discussed below are by no means an exhaustive list of God’s blessings, but they are fundamental to life and happiness, and too often we take them for granted.

earth and restore “all things” as has been prophesied by God’s
prophets “since the world began” (Acts 3:21). He will establish
at that time a literal world ruling kingdom, that shall never end
(Revelation 11:15). In part one of this series we discussed several
ways in which the world will be different from today’s world when
Jesus Christ establishes the Kingdom of God on earth.
As discussed in that article there will be: (1) An end to oppression. (2) Just government. (3) End to war. (4) Harmony among races and nations.
let’s continue with a discussion of some other ways in which the
world will be different, and far better, than today’s world after
Jesus Christ returns to establish his kingdom.Continue reading →
