Thy Kingdom Come, Asking for Paradise on Earth

We have come to the twelfth and final promise God made to Israel.

God PROMISED in His Word that: Jesus will return as Israel’s Messiah, Jesus Christ the Pierced Messiah will rescue the Jews at their darkest hour, after defeating all their enemies and locking up their fiercest adversary the Devil they will rebuild their Temple in Jerusalem for all the world to visit, and finally, Jesus Christ, the Son of David will sit as the Promised King on the Throne of David.

Each day, countless times, all over the Earth, there is a cry for the 1,000 year rule of Jesus Christ as King over all the Earth to commence. You know it well. See if you can follow along saying those words with me:

“Our Father, who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done;
On Earth, as it is in Heaven;
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil;
For Thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory—Forever.”

Yes, that is the Lord’s Prayer taught to the disciples.

And that is the heart’s cry of Christ's Church; and that is the call for Christ's return to restore Israel again to the place God planned, and to see Christ sit on the Throne of David!

That prayer is uttered by believers who recite what Jesus left us to pray as a model to guide us. Each time you pray these words you are saying come quickly, overthrow the Devil and the kingdoms of this world, and come to sit on the throne of David, and bless your chosen people of promise the Jews with all those hundreds of promises you made them long ago!

“The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like the ox, and dust shall be the serpent’s food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,” says the Lord (Isaiah 65:25, emphasis added).

It is time to focus our attentions on the new world God has planned, because this old one is dying. Although this old world is doomed, He has some great plans for the future of this planet. God has planned for a whole new world—far beyond anything we could ever plan or do. The Lord is preparing to restore an Eden-like paradise on earth again! There are dozens of promised changes until the world blossoms like a rose garden—yet with no blight and no bugs! When will all that happen? It will occur in the Millennium.
