The wonderful news of the coming Kingdom of God is the heart and core of Jesus Christ’s message for humanity. Jesus will return to earth and establish this Kingdom. He will be the Ruler of the Kingdom of God. Consider this prophecy of Jesus Christ’s return: “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 11:15Revelation 11:15And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. American King James Version×). Jesus Christ will rule over literal kingdoms on earth.
This is the gospel—the good news—that Jesus Christ taught. The focus of Jesus Christ’s message was the announcement of a coming world government (Luke 21:31Luke 21:31So likewise you, when you see these things come to pass, know you that the kingdom of God is near at hand. American King James Version×). This government will not be ruled by selfishly motivated humans but by Jesus Christ Himself, and it will continue forever!
