Genesis 1 says that after God created mankind he gave them rule over the earth. But man did not choose to rule according to God's guidance but rather created their own forms of government and ways of governing. We see the result of this in our present world where everyone thinks their opinion is the correct one and we have a world filled with division between liberal and conservative ideas of governing. In this lead in sermon to the feast Mr. Smith shows us that the Bible says that God will take control of this world and bring in a form a government that we have never seen before,a government that brings about peace and blessings for mankind and for the world itself.
