Verses:

 

Jer. 23:5 “I will raise up to David a righteous Shoot; and He will reign as King and act prudently and will execute justice and righteousness in the land.”

 

Excerpts:

 

After Christ comes back, He will set up the kingdom of God on earth. Then in the kingdom He will still be the Son of Man. God’s enemy, Satan, rebelled against God’s authority. For dealing with him God created man and gave man dominion to rule over the earth. After man was seduced by Satan to follow him, God became a man by the name Jesus to undo the works of the devil and destroy him, that He might reclaim the earth to be His kingdom. In this upcoming kingdom, which Christ as the Son of Man will bring in, He will surely be the Son of Man, not only as a sign of God’s victory and glory but also as a sign of Satan’s defeat and shame.

 

After Christ takes possession of the earth, He will reign over the earth as the King in the kingdom, ruling over the nations with His overcoming believers. As the coming King, He will be the Head and the center in the upcoming kingdom of God in the millennium. This will be the fulfillment of Isaiah 32:1, Jeremiah 23:5, and Zechariah 14:9 and 17. As Christ has redeemed the earth and all its peoples to be the sphere and components of His kingdom, as He has sold all to buy the kingdom, and as He has rescued the earth with all its peoples from the usurpation of Satan, He will have the full right to be the King of the restored earth and the restored nations. In His upcoming reign God’s Authority and glory will be fully manifested, and the whole earth with its peoples will be brought into righteousness, peace, joy, and the full blessing of God’s creation. (The Conclusion of the New Testament, msg. 32)
