How Will the World be Different When Christ Returns? Part 3

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.

How Will the World Be Different When Christ Returns? (Part 2)

The Bible assures us that Jesus Christ will one day return to earth and restore “all things” as has been prophesied by God’s prophets “since the world began” (Acts 3:21).

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.

Now 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

Will the wicked really be tormented forever in hell? In this sermon, pastor Rod Reynolds examines in detail passages in the book of Revelation that have traditionally been used to establish the common belief in a never-ending hellfire reserved for punishment of the wicked. To understand what the Bible says about hell, we must carefully study the context of the scriptures in question.
