6. The Future Kingdom


The future Kingdom of God will begin with the return of the King himself; His Royal Majesty, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord will return in great glory and power and will establish his rule from the throne of David, over all the nations of the earth. His reign will last for 1000 years; which at the end, he will turn it over to God the Father.

1.  His glorious return

  REVELATION 19:11-16   And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and
  he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge
  and make war.
  12.  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a
  name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
  13.  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The
  Word of God.
  14.  And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in
  fine linen, white and clean.
  15.  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations:  
  and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness
  and wrath of Almighty God.
  16.  And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS,
  AND LORD OF LORDS.


  MATTHEW 24:30-31   And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
  and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man
  coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
  31.  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather
  together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

3.  His throne and reign

A.  His Throne

      LUKE 1:31-33   And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a
      son, and shalt call his name Jesus.
      32.  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God
      shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
      33.  And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there
      shall be no end.

      ACTS 2:25-35    Vs.30   Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God has
      sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he
      would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

  B.  His Reign

      REVELATION 20:6   Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection:
      on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of
      Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

      ISAIAH 9:6-7   For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the
      government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful,
      Counseller, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
      7.  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the
      throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment
      and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will
      perform this.

       ( See Isaiah 11:1-10 )

      JEREMIAH 23:5   Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto
      David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute          
      judgment and justice in the earth.

4.  Christ delivers the Rule to God the Father

  1 CORINTHIANS 15:24   Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the
  kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all
  authority and power.

5.  God Purges Heaven and Earth

  2 PETER 3:10-12   But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the
  which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with
  fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
  11.  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought
  ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
  12.  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens
  being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

6. New Heaven and New Earth

  and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

  coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
