The Kingdom Of God will be a visible irresistible and everlasting state to be established on the earth. It will replace all existing kingdoms, states and republics. Its establishment begins with the physical return of Jesus to the earth, when He assumes its Kingship. The exact time of this happening is known only to God.
“. . . the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever” (Daniel 2:44).
“Then to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed . . . Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him” (Daniel 7:14,27).
“Then the seventh angel sounded: and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, ‘The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!’” (Revelation 11:15).
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only” (Matthew 24:36).
The coming into existence of this kingdom will see the commencement of a previously unattainable state of peace and agricultural productivity.
“But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace” (Psalm 37:11).
“He will bring justice to the poor of the people; he will save the children of the needy, and will break in pieces the oppressor . . . Yes, all kings shall fall down before him; all nations shall serve him . . . There will be an abundance of grain in the earth, on the top of the mountains; its fruit shall wave like Lebanon . . .” (Psalm 72:4,11,16).
