Today’s world is in turmoil. The descendants of the ancient peoples of Israel, not just the Jewish people, but all of the so-called “lost ten tribes,” who migrated westward and eventually settled in the British Isles, parts of western and northwestern Europe, and kindred peoples in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and other scattered places, were warned that if they rejected him and his commandments they would have their blessings replaced by curses. But after a period of punishment, they would be delivered, and not only they, but the entire world would be blessed by God as never before, under the reign of the risen Jesus Christ, returned to the earth to assume rulership over the entire world, sitting on the throne of David in Jerusalem.
In this message we discuss some additional ways in which the world will be different — and far better — after the return of Jesus Christ, than it is today, in the concluding message of this series.
Is it true, as has often been taught within professing Christianity, that the question of eternal salvation is sealed at the time of one’s death? Are some of your loved ones, simply because they did not profess faith in Christ during their earthy pilgrimage, destined to suffer eternal torment forever?
The Bible assures us that God is the giver of every blessing (James 1:17). There are countless blessings from God that could be listed.
However, in this article I want to focus on one particular blessing of paramount importance to every single person, especially those who are in possession of that blessing. But those who are without it, or who are deficient in it, suffer as a result.
Even though the blessing I am focusing on here is rare in certain respects, and becoming even more scarce, it’s a blessing that God wants everyone to have. And in due time, the world will be confronted with this blessing on a universal scale.
A key theme of the Bible is that of a Messiah to bring salvation to
the world (cf.; Isaiah 49:6; 52:10). Jesus Christ is prophesied to
return to the earth in power and glory, restore peace, and establish
a righteous and just government over the earth (cf. Psalm 72:1-7;
Daniel 7:13-14; Revelation 11:15).
After the living
God, Creator of all that is made, establishes his government over the
earth, it will be a much different world. In the final article in
this series, we will explore some additional important ways in which
the world will be different after Christ returns.
review key points covered in the previous articles in this series.
After Christ returns there will be: (1) An end to oppression. (2)
Just government. (3) An end to war. (4) Peace and harmony among races
and nations. (5) Stable government. (6) Predictable and favorable
weather, and abundant produce for all.
