THE REIGN OF CHRIST

 

Scriptures are cited from the King James (Authorized) Version, unless stated otherwise.

 

Question: Why should we expect Christ to reign over the earth?

 

Answer: The Bible indicates that there are many reasons for Christ’s future reign over the earth.

We will give many of them, and cite Scriptural texts as proof:

 

  • To provide for the needs of the race by uplifting all the willing and obedient to physical,

mental, moral and religious perfection (Romans 8: 21, 22).

  • To exalt the righteous, who have been oppressed (Isaiah 35: 4) (Psalm 37: 7-11)

(Psalm 75: 10) (Psalm 107: 41) (Matthew 25: 34, 46).

  • To overthrow and destroy Satan’s empire, which has ruled the world with terrible results

(Daniel 12: 1) (Matthew 24: 21) (Isaiah 25: 7) (Revelation 11: 15).

  • To mete out justice to mankind (Isaiah 26: 9) (Jeremiah 23: 5, 6) (Matthew 10: 42)

(Matthew 12: 36).

  • To restrain evil and spread good (1 Corinthians 15: 24-26) (Revelation 20: 1-3)

(Revelation 21: 4, 5).

  • To make it possible for all to receive the benefits of Christ’s death, for He died for all

(Hebrews 2: 9) (John 1: 29) (John 12: 32) (1 John 2: 2). History and observation show that

not all in this life receive the benefits of Christ’s death, consequently, this can only be

brought about through His reign.

  • To give the world an opportunity to obtain salvation (1 Timothy 2: 4-6)

(Romans 5: 18, 19) (Psalm 22: 27-29) (1 Corinthians 15: 21-26) (Philippians 2: 8-11).

  • To minister restitution to the obedient (Acts 3: 19-21).
  • To test the world of mankind as to fitness for everlasting life (Revelation 20: 7-9).
  • To render and execute final sentence (Matthew 25: 46).
