It is the Kingdom of God that’s coming; it’s the kingdom for which the Messiah taught His people to pray....
“Your kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” (Matthew 6:10)
This is a kingdom that even good men cannot establish. It will be established after the Tribulation when the King of Righteousness, the Messiah, returns in power and glory. His Kingdom is the answer to all our inequity, exploitation,
poverty and injustice.
WILL THIS REALLY HAPPEN?
Most definitely, for not one single word of God will fail. All Bible prophecies have been, or will be, fulfilled with absolute accuracy. And there are a lot of Bible prophecies concerning the Messiah and the coming Millennial Kingdom - the glorious 1,000-year reign of righteousness. A few of those prophecies are quoted below.
The Almighty says:
“For you who revere My Name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in His wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall.” (Malachi 4:2)
In this prophecy the Messiah is called “the Sun of Righteousness.”
He is also called the “Sh’khinah Glory.”
“Arise, shine, for your light has come! and the Sh’khinah glory (the manifest Presence) of Yahweh has risen upon you. Look! Darkness will cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but Yahweh will arise upon you, and His glory will be seen over you. The Gentile nations will come to your Light, and kings to the brightness of your Rising.” (Isaiah 60:1-3)
“The Spirit of Yahweh will rest upon Him (the Messiah-King). The Spirit of Wisdom and of Understanding; the Spirit of Counsel and of Power; the Spirit of Knowledge and of the Fear of Yahweh - and He will delight in the fear of Yahweh. He will not judge by what He sees with His eyes, nor make a decision by what He hears with His ears; but with righteousness He will judge the poor, and with justice, give decisions for the meek - the lowly, timid and afflicted - of the earth.” (Isaiah 11:2-4)
“In the last days the mountain of the House of Yahweh will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and all nations will stream into it. Many peoples will come and say, ‘Come, let us go up to the
mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us His ways, so that we may walk in His paths.’ For the Law (instruction) will go out from Zion, and the Word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.
He will judge between the nations, and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they learn warfare any more.” (Isaiah 2:2-4)
“The kingdoms of the world have become the kingdom of YHWH our LORD and of His Anointed - the Messiah; and He will reign forever and ever.” (Revelation 11:15)
“I, yes, I have installed My King on Zion, My holy hill.” (Psalm 2:6).
“The earth will be full of the knowledge of Yahweh as the waters cover the sea.” (Isaiah 11:9).
