After serving eight years as president of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower gave a farewell speech to the nation on Jan. 17, 1961. Near its conclusion he laid out this captivating vision:

“We pray that people of all faiths, all races, all nations, may have their great human needs satisfied; that those now denied opportunity shall come to enjoy it to the full; that all who yearn for freedom may experience its spiritual blessings; that all who are insensitive to the needs of others will learn charity; that the scourges of poverty, disease and ignorance will be made to disappear from the earth, and that, in the goodness of time, all peoples will come to live together in a peace guaranteed by the binding force of mutual respect and love.”

In conveying his sincere aspirations for humanity, President Eisenhower voiced what many others have yearned for throughout history. Was this merely wishful thinking? Was it just a dream to imagine that peoples, nations and races could live together in perfect harmony and enjoy loving, respectful relationships? Is it possible that every person on earth could have their physical needs met completely and continually?

And in taking this a bit farther, is it only a fantasy to think that all people could enjoy peace of mind, feel totally safe and secure, be educated and have the opportunity to fully develop their talents? Is it beyond hope to think that people could always be governed under honest, honorable and caring leadership?

Not a dream but a coming reality

As improbable as it may seem, what President Eisenhower expressed was not a mere dream but a marvelous and electrifying reality yet to come! It will happen—not by human effort or action, but because the loving, powerful, eternal God of the universe will bring it to pass!

Bible prophecy reveals that these wonderful conditions the world has longed for will last for a millennium, meaning 1,000 years. When this epoch is initiated it will mark the most magnificent turning point in the entire history of humanity. World society will move from conditions of fear, deficiency and distress to assurance, prosperity and tranquility.

And, most significantly, all people will have the opportunity to develop a close and enduring relationship with their Creator, follow His way of life, obtain the gift of spiritual salvation and enter into His eternal, divine family (Isaiah 61:10 Isaiah 61:10I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
American King James Version×
; John 17:3 John 17:3And this is life eternal, that they might know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
American King James Version×
). This is all part of the greatest news anyone could ever hear!

This glorious age to come will begin when Jesus Christ returns to earth in magnificent power and glory to reign for 1,000 years as King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 17:14 Revelation 17:14These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
American King James Version×
; 19:16). Just prior to that time, however, the world will experience a calamitous period of global warfare resulting in enormous destruction and the death and suffering of billions of people. However, Christ will intervene to stop it completely so as to save humanity from annihilation (Matthew 24:22 Matthew 24:22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
American King James Version×
).

Furthermore, He will take power and authority out of the hands of debased, evil men and wicked spiritual influences operating behind the scenes, incarcerating Satan the devil and his demonic cohorts so they can no longer corruptly influence human beings (Revelation 20:1-2 Revelation 20:1-2 [1] And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. [2] And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
American King James Version×
; Jude 13). The world will then at last be freed from its long and wearisome captivity to ignorance, violence and iniquity (Romans 8:21 Romans 8:21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
American King James Version×
).

Afterwards Christ will launch the beginnings of a new, righteous civilization that will bring all people tremendous joy and an incredibly exciting future (Isaiah 49:8-9 Isaiah 49:8-9 [8] Thus said the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard you, and in a day of salvation have I helped you: and I will preserve you, and give you for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages; [9] That you may say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Show yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.
American King James Version×
; Jeremiah 29:11 Jeremiah 29:11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, said the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
American King James Version×
). Building literally on the ashes of a spent, shattered human society, He will first offer great comfort and aid to the bewildered and terrified survivors of the worldwide catastrophe just experienced.

With the assistance of His newly resurrected, immortal followers of this age then serving with Him as kings and priests (Revelation 5:10 Revelation 5:10And have made us to our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
American King James Version×
; 20:6), He will provide the beleaguered people of the world with immediate physical needs, including food, water, clothing and shelter (Ezekiel 34:12-16 Ezekiel 34:12-16 [12] As a shepherd seeks out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. [13] And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them on the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. [14] I will feed them in a good pasture, and on the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed on the mountains of Israel. [15] I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, said the Lord GOD. [16] I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.
American King James Version×
).

Jesus Christ’s righteous government

Jesus will also assure all of these weary, grief-stricken people that they no longer need to live in fear (Isaiah 44:8 Isaiah 44:8Fear you not, neither be afraid: have not I told you from that time, and have declared it? you are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yes, there is no God; I know not any.
American King James Version×
). As Isaiah 40:1-2 Isaiah 40:1-2 [1] Comfort you, comfort you my people, said your God. [2] Speak you comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry to her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she has received of the LORD's hand double for all her sins.
American King James Version×
declares: “‘Comfort, yes, comfort My people!’ says your God. ‘Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned.’” And likewise in Isaiah 49:13 Isaiah 49:13Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD has comforted his people, and will have mercy on his afflicted.
American King James Version×
: “Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones” (New International Version).

Besides providing empathy and support, Christ will deliver miraculous healing to halt pain, distress and suffering (Isaiah 35:5-6 Isaiah 35:5-6 [5] Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. [6] Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
American King James Version×
; Malachi 4:2 Malachi 4:2But to you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and you shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
American King James Version×
). Over a period of time all who’ve endured intense misery and tragedy will experience a rebuilding of their physical, mental and emotional health and strength: “I have seen their ways, but I will heal them; I will guide them and restore comfort to Israel’s mourners” (Isaiah 57:18 Isaiah 57:18I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts to him and to his mourners.
American King James Version×
, NIV).

As the Good Shepherd who truly cares for His flock (John 10:10-14 John 10:10-14 [10] The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. [11] I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. [12] But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and flees: and the wolf catches them, and scatters the sheep. [13] The hireling flees, because he is an hireling, and cares not for the sheep. [14] I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
American King James Version×
), Jesus will also help people understand that genuine safety and security is now guaranteed, with a divine, benevolent administration in place to continually serve and support them (Isaiah 2:3 Isaiah 2:3And many people shall go and say, Come you, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
American King James Version×
; 9:6; Jeremiah 33:15 Jeremiah 33:15In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up to David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.
American King James Version×
).

He will replace all levels of human rule with judicious and righteous governance, resulting in magnificent changes throughout world society. During Jesus’ millennial reign over the Kingdom of God on earth, His generous and gracious ways will characterize all relationships between people (Revelation 20:6 Revelation 20:6Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
American King James Version×
; Psalms 111:4 Psalms 111:4He has made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
American King James Version×
). With society personally guided and governed by Jesus Christ, genuine peacefulness—previously unknown to humanity—will gladden and reassure individuals, families and entire nations (Isaiah 9:7 Isaiah 9:7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, on the throne of David, and on his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from now on even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
American King James Version×
; Psalms 119:165 Psalms 119:165Great peace have they which love your law: and nothing shall offend them.
American King James Version×
).

Contributing to this spectacular condition will be the fact that education in warfare and war itself will be utterly abolished (Psalms 46:9-10 Psalms 46:9-10 [9] He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and cuts the spear in sunder; he burns the chariot in the fire. [10] Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
American King James Version×
). Assuredly, humanity will no longer suffer the apprehension, cruelty and devastation of war (Micah 4:3 Micah 4:3And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
American King James Version×
).

“Violence will disappear from your land; the desolation and destruction of war will end. Salvation will surround you like city walls, and praise will be on the lips of all who enter there” (Isaiah 60:18 Isaiah 60:18Violence shall no more be heard in your land, wasting nor destruction within your borders; but you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.
American King James Version×
, New Living Translation). All people will experience confident well-being as God’s loving and saving influence transforms the hearts and minds of people the world over (Isaiah 52:10 Isaiah 52:10The LORD has made bore his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
American King James Version×
).

Wonderfully, these earthly citizens of God’s government will be relieved of anxiety and live peaceably because conflict and contention between races and peoples will be entirely eliminated! In fact, former enemies will work together in complete unity and harmony (Isaiah 19:24-25 Isaiah 19:24-25 [24] In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the middle of the land: [25] Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel my inheritance.
American King James Version×
).

Peacefulness will not only be the way of life for humanity, but it will also govern in the natural world since God will change the very nature of animals so they become tame. “A wolf will reside with a lamb, and a leopard will lie down with a young goat; an ox and a young lion will graze together, as a small child leads them along” (Isaiah 11:6 Isaiah 11:6The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatted calf together; and a little child shall lead them.
American King James Version×
, New English Translation).

In this transformed world, parents will be freed from all worry in knowing that their children are safe in every situation. The same prophecy continues: “The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain” (verse 9).

Wilderness areas to be transformed

God’s flawless design for His coming, marvelous age will also take into account an important new fact about the earth itself. Shortly before Jesus Christ’s second coming, powerful earthquakes and meteor impacts will cause enormous changes to the world’s surface (Matthew 24:7 Matthew 24:7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
American King James Version×
; Revelation 6:12-14 Revelation 6:12-14 [12] And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, see, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; [13] And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, even as a fig tree casts her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. [14] And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
American King James Version×
). And divine intervention will bring further changes.

As God promises the blessings of rain and abundance for all peoples, it appears that the earth’s weather patterns will be altered substantially. Multiple millions of previously unusable acres of land will become accessible for future human settlement and cultivation. Also, abundant water resources, including new rivers, streams and lakes will be manifested in the changing landscape (Psalms 107:35 Psalms 107:35He turns the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into springs.
American King James Version×
).

Earth’s former wilderness areas will be transformed into well-watered, productive lands (Amos 9:13 Amos 9:13Behold, the days come, said the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that sows seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.
American King James Version×
). Deserts and former wastelands will turn green and lush as rainfall reaches them regularly in precisely needed amounts (Isaiah 51:3 Isaiah 51:3For the LORD shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.
American King James Version×
). “The wilderness and the dry land will be glad. The desert will rejoice and blossom like a rose” (Isaiah 35:1 Isaiah 35:1The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
American King James Version×
, World English Bible).

Besides having suitable precipitation on a consistent basis, springs of water will bubble up from the ground creating clear, sparkling streams and gracefully flowing rivers (Isaiah 41:18 Isaiah 41:18I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the middle of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
American King James Version×
). It will be as if the earth itself expresses great joy because of all these marvelous changes! As Psalms 65:13 Psalms 65:13The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
American King James Version×
says, “The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered with grain; they shout for joy, they also sing.”

Moreover, many uninhabited, abandoned cities and towns will be completely renovated: “And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations” (Isaiah 61:4 Isaiah 61:4And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.
American King James Version×
).

Imagine young families journeying to these locations to build homes and farms (Ezekiel 36:9-10 Ezekiel 36:9-10 [9] For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown: [10] And I will multiply men on you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be built:
American King James Version×
). “The fields that used to lie empty and desolate in plain view of everyone will again be farmed. And when I bring you back, people will say, ‘This former wasteland is now like the Garden of Eden’” (Ezekiel 36; 34-35, NLT).

Jesus Christ will at that time give all families their own land to cultivate and enjoy! “Everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid; for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken” (Micah 4:4 Micah 4:4But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken it.
American King James Version×
).

Farms and gardens will flourish abundantly: “The Lord says, ‘The time is coming when there will be all kinds of food. People will still be harvesting crops when it’s time to plow again. People will still be taking the juice from grapes when it’s time to plant again. Wine will drip from the mountains and pour from the hills’” (Amos 9:13 Amos 9:13Behold, the days come, said the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that sows seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.
American King James Version×
, New Century Version).

Families will experience blessing after blessing as they raise a variety of abundant crops, care for productive fruit trees and tend to healthy livestock (Isaiah 30:23 Isaiah 30:23Then shall he give the rain of your seed, that you shall sow the ground with; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall your cattle feed in large pastures.
American King James Version×
).

Great prosperity and fulfillment

As a result of God’s perfect rule through Jesus Christ, families all around the world will have plenty to eat, live healthfully, be prosperous and enjoy extraordinary fulfillment (Jeremiah 31:12 Jeremiah 31:12Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all.
American King James Version×
).

The next verse adds that the people of that day, being peaceful, happy and productive, will have opportunities to participate in a variety of cultural, recreational and social activities, with young and old enjoying each other’s company: “The young women will dance for joy, and the men—old and young—will join in the celebration. I will turn their mourning into joy. I will comfort them and exchange their sorrow for rejoicing” (verse 13, NLT).

And significantly, as an example to other towns, villages and farms around the globe, the world capital of Jerusalem will become the center of education and inspiration for everyone. “Many people shall come and say, ‘Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.’ For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem” (Isaiah 2:3 Isaiah 2:3And many people shall go and say, Come you, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
American King James Version×
).

Unlike the present age, when Jerusalem has so often been a place of bitter fighting and contention, it will become an incredibly beautiful city of supreme happiness and tranquility (Isaiah 33:20 Isaiah 33:20Look on Zion, the city of our solemnities: your eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.
American King James Version×
). It will be so secure and peaceful that little boys and girls will play happily in its streets (Zechariah 8:5 Zechariah 8:5And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof.
American King James Version×
). “Behold, I create Jerusalem as a rejoicing, and her people a joy. I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people; the voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her, nor the voice of crying” (Isaiah 65:18-19 Isaiah 65:18-19 [18] But be you glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. [19] And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
American King James Version×
).

Throughout the Millennium, people everywhere on earth will live in perfect safety and will raise their children in fine homes on beautiful, well-tended, highly productive land: “My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings and in quiet resting places” (Isaiah 32:18 Isaiah 32:18And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;
American King James Version×
).

Learning God’s perfect way of life

Not only will Jesus Christ make it possible for people to live in peace and enjoy great physical abundance, but He will give them key spiritual and moral instruction and guidance. Assisting Christ in this essential duty will be His resurrected, faithful and wise divine sons and daughters of this age who will then serve as teachers, administrators, judges and leaders (2 Corinthians 6:18 2 Corinthians 6:18And will be a Father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, said the Lord Almighty.
American King James Version×
; Isaiah 30:20 Isaiah 30:20And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not your teachers be removed into a corner any more, but your eyes shall see your teachers:
American King James Version×
).

They will diligently coach all people in God’s exceptional way of life—foundational to which are His Ten Commandments, including the required observance of His weekly Sabbath day along with His seven annual Holy Days (Exodus 31:13 Exodus 31:13Speak you also to the children of Israel, saying, Truly my sabbaths you shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that you may know that I am the LORD that does sanctify you.
American King James Version×
; Ezekiel 44:24 Ezekiel 44:24And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all my assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.
American King James Version×
). If anyone drifts from following these vital guidelines, they will be quietly yet firmly corrected: “Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left” (Isaiah 30:21 Isaiah 30:21And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left.
American King James Version×
).

By obeying God’s teachings, all individuals and nations will have a firm foundation for cooperation as they harmoniously serve others. It will be such a spectacular time that “the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14 Habakkuk 2:14For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
American King James Version×
)!

In addition, God will grant repentance to all who are willing, followed by the matchless gift of His Holy Spirit (Acts 11:18 Acts 11:18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then has God also to the Gentiles granted repentance to life.
American King James Version×
; Jeremiah 31:33 Jeremiah 31:33But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, said the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
American King James Version×
). As He says, “I’ll place my spirit within you, empowering you to live according to my regulations and to keep my just decrees” (Ezekiel 36:27 Ezekiel 36:27And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my judgments, and do them.
American King James Version×
, International Standard Version).

Empowered and changed by that Holy Spirit, people will be motivated by a sincere desire to love and obey God and show profound, caring concern toward their neighbors. “This is the new covenant I will make with my people on that day, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds” (Hebrews 10:16 Hebrews 10:16This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, said the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
American King James Version×
, NLT).

Then, after 1,000 years of phenomenal peace, joy and prosperity, the next phase of God’s great plan will commence. All the billions of people who have lived in past ages, not having known their Creator or scriptural truth, will be resurrected from their graves to physical life and be given their very first opportunity to learn about God and His way of life (Ezekiel 37; Revelation 20:11-12 Revelation 20:11-12 [11] And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. [12] And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
American King James Version×
).

Jesus Christ will offer them the gift of the Holy Spirit so they will not only comprehend spiritual knowledge, but have the prospect of receiving salvation (Acts 2:38 Acts 2:38Then Peter said to them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
American King James Version×
; Isaiah 65:20-24 Isaiah 65:20-24 [20] There shall be no more there an infant of days, nor an old man that has not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. [21] And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. [22] They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and my elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. [23] They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. [24] And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
American King James Version×
). As they look back on their former physical lives, they will see that its results could never compare to the prosperity, tranquility and joy experienced under the rule of God’s Kingdom. As a result, the vast majority will choose to submit to God, obey His commandments and later be transformed into immortal spirit beings in His eternal, divine family (Ephesians 3:15 Ephesians 3:15Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
American King James Version×
; Hebrews 2:10 Hebrews 2:10For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
American King James Version×
).

The greatest news anyone could hear

Perhaps you can now better visualize God’s breathtaking new age, which is depicted clearly in Bible prophecy. He is preparing the most positive, exciting and marvelous future for all humanity.

Jesus Christ will introduce dramatic and wonderful changes into people’s lives as He initiates an entirely new, awe-inspiring civilization built on the foundation of God’s truth. This will result in immeasurable joy, peacefulness and abundant prosperity for every person. And, through God giving people His Holy Spirit, they will have the ability to truly love and obey Him, deeply care for others and personally grow spiritually strong (Galatians 5:22-23 Galatians 5:22-23 [22] But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, [23] Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
American King James Version×
).

With everyone continually educated in God’s ideal ways and applying them, they will experience boundless contentment and happiness while becoming spiritually prepared to join God in His family of divine beings (Psalms 100:1-5 Psalms 100:1-5 [1] Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all you lands. [2] Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. [3] Know you that the LORD he is God: it is he that has made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. [4] Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful to him, and bless his name.
