What the Kingdom Will Accomplish
God’s Kingdom is already ruling. Soon it will make big changes on the earth. Let us consider some of the good things that you can look forward to under Kingdom rule.
1. How will God’s Kingdom restore peace and justice to the earth?
Jesus, the King of God’s Kingdom, will destroy wicked people and governments at the war of Armageddon. (Revelation 16:14, 16) At that time, the following Bible promise will be completely fulfilled: “Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more.” (Psalm 37:10) Through the Kingdom, Jesus will make sure that peace and justice fill the earth.—Read Isaiah 11:4.
2. What will life be like when God’s will is done on earth?
Under the rule of God’s Kingdom, “the righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.” (Psalm 37:29) Imagine living in a world where everyone is righteous and all love Jehovah and each other! No one will get sick, and everyone will live forever.
3. What will God’s Kingdom accomplish after the wicked are destroyed?
After the wicked are destroyed, Jesus will rule as King for 1,000 years. During that time, he and his 144,000 corulers will help humans on earth to become perfect and sinless. By the end of that period, the earth will be turned into a beautiful paradise, filled with happy people who benefit from obeying Jehovah’s laws. Jesus will then hand the rulership back to his Father, Jehovah. As never before, Jehovah’s “name [will] be sanctified.” (Matthew 6:9, 10) It will have been proved that Jehovah is a good Ruler who cares about his subjects. Jehovah will then destroy Satan, the demons, and any others who choose to rebel against His rulership. (Revelation 20:7-10) The perfect conditions brought about by God’s Kingdom will last forever.
Consider why we can trust that God will use the Kingdom to fulfill all the Bible’s promises for our future.
4. God’s Kingdom will end human governments
