A few measured bon knots to get your thinker workin'.
As our friend Criswell has stated, "We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives."
The FUTURE will not see Man in charge-Christ will rule Creation from Jerusalem.
Not just Israel.
Nor only Sea to shining Sea.
There will be no people group not under His control.
Every nation will obey His rule.
Nations. Some will be known by the names they have now; Zechariah 14:18 makes mention of 'the family of Egypt', so there will at least be an Egypt. Other nations are also named as existing through the Millennial reign.
But will America still be called America? Only if Christ decrees that to be the case.
Cheer up, non-Christian buttercups. If you survive through the 'End Times', yes, you will be obliged to submit to Christ as King and Lord.
But the world, the harsh, evil sinful world you have known will be redeemed.
"And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, And the leopard will lie down with the young goat, And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little boy will lead them.
7 Also the cow and the bear will graze, Their young will lie down together, And the lion will eat straw like the ox." Isaiah 11:6-7
There will also be no war in your lifetime. No crooked politicians lying to garner power to themselves. No more hungry children. No more abused children!
The King of Peace will indeed rule from the city of Peace. Your life will be better in unimaginable ways, if you survive to see that Kingdom.
I hope to see you there.
