The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord
And of his Christ,
And he will reign for ever and ever. (Revelation 11:15)
It is noteworthy that it says “the kingdom of the world,” singular,
Because in reality the whole world belongs to one kingdom,
The kingdom of Satan.
This is why in Satan's tempting of Jesus,
He could offer Jesus the kingdoms of the world;
The kingdoms of the world are all part of Satan's kingdom. (Matthew 4:8-9)
What is the future of the nations; the kingdom of the world?
The God of Creation has determined the future of the nations.
The story is clearly told in His Word:
The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates,
And its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East.
Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs;
They came out of the mouth of the Dragon, out of the mouth of the Beast
And out of the mouth of the False Prophet.
They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs,
And they go out to the kings of the whole world,
To gather them for the battle on The Great Day of God Almighty.
'Behold, I (Christ Jesus) come like a thief !
Blessed is he who stay awake and keeps his clothes with him,
So that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.'
Then they gathered the kings together
To the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air,
And out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying,
'It is done!' (Revelation 16:12-17)
“It is done!” The reign of Satan is over.
His kingdom, the whole world, all the nations of the world;
That is what is left of them,
Are now the Kingdom of our Lord and His Christ, Jesus.
And He will reign for ever and ever.
Christ Jesus, at The Battle Of Armageddon,
Overthrows the Beast, the Antichrist,
With the breath of His mouth and the splendor of His appearing.
(2 Thessalonians 2:8)
All the armies of the world are destroyed at The Battle Of Armageddon.
All the nations of the world are destroyed, their cities turned to rubble
And most of their people killed.
Such is the ignoble end of the world we know.
In fact Satan knows his future; all he can do at this point is play his part
In that which is foretold in the Word of God.
Nevertheless, a Remnant of people; those who put their faith, hope and trust
In the Christ of God are saved.
This is The Bride of Christ, The New Jerusalem, Zion, The Israel of God.
The Eternal City of God.
