Biblical Concept: The Earthly Reign of God the Father
The underlines and parentheses are mine.
NAS Revelation 1:4 John to the seven churches that are in
NAS Revelation 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there arose loud
voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the
kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever."
16 And the twenty-four elders, who sit on their thrones before God, fell on
their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying, "We give Thee thanks, O Lord
God, the Almighty, who art and who wast, because Thou hast taken Thy great
power and hast begun to reign. 18 "And the nations were enraged, and
Thy wrath came, and the time came for the dead to be judged, and the time to
give their reward to Thy bond-servants the prophets and to the saints and to
those who fear Thy name, the small and the great, and to destroy those who
destroy the earth." 19 And the
NAS Revelation 22:1 And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, 2 in the middle of its street. And on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His bond-servants shall serve Him; 4 and they shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 And there shall no longer be any night; and they shall not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God shall illumine them; and they shall reign forever and ever. (In the eternal New Jerusalem, God the Father and Jesus Christ will reign forever and ever. Note 21:22.)
