7) The Desirable Future
There are many signs in the world today that show Jesus' return is very near. It has been shown that Jesus said his return is near when Jerusalem was ruled once again by Jews. The revival of the nation of Israel has to be one of the major signs and the witness to the surety of God's promises (Isaiah 43-44).
The return of Jesus Christ will transform this world from oppression and godlessness to justice, peace and equity. Those who await Jesus' return and are granted eternal life, will have important roles to play in administering this new world order. The mortal population who survive the war and calamities that will come with the transfer of power and government from the nations to Jesus Christ, will experience blessings of joy which we cannot yet fully understand.
Oh that you would rend the heavens, that you would come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence, For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither has the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he has prepared for him that waits for him. (Isaiah 64:1,4)
