The FUTURE government


Ecclesiastes 7:14

King James Version

14 In the day of prosperity be joyful, 

but in the day of adversity consider: 

God also hath set the one over against the other, 

to the end that man should find nothing after him.

In the previous post, we shared with you the PERFECT government.

Which is in stark contrast to how governments in the world are.

You can also call it the "ideal" government.

We can create such a government, if we really wanted to.

But what if we don't?

What happens then?

Will we be doomed?

Well, there's a bright future for believers.

Scripture assures us:

Revelation 21:1-2

King James Version

21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: 

for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; 

and there was no more sea.

2 And I John saw the holy city, 

new Jerusalem, 

coming down from God out of heaven, 

prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Revelation 21:3

King James Version

3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, 

Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, 

and he will dwell with them, 

and they shall be his people, 

and God himself shall be with them, 

and be their God.

Revelation 21:4

King James Version

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; 

and there shall be no more death, 

neither sorrow, nor crying, 

neither shall there be any more pain: 

for the former things are passed away.

Revelation 21:5

King James Version

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, 

Behold, I make all things new. 

And he said unto me, 

Write: for these words are true 

and faithful.

Revelation 21:6-8

King James Version

6 And he said unto me, 

It is done. 

I am Alpha and Omega, 

the beginning and the end. 

I will give unto him that is athirst 

of the fountain of the water of life freely.

7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; 

and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, 

and the abominable, and murderers, 

and whoremongers, and sorcerers, 

and idolaters, and all liars, 

shall have their part in the lake 

which burneth with fire and brimstone: 

which is the second death.

Revelation 21:9

King James Version

9 And there came unto me 

one of the seven angels 

which had the seven vials 

full of the seven last plagues, 

and talked with me, saying, 

Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, 

the Lamb's wife.

Revelation 21:10-13

King James Version

10 And he carried me away in the spirit 

to a great and high mountain, 

and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, 

descending out of heaven from God,

11 Having the glory of God: 

and her light was like unto a stone most precious, 

even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

12 And had a wall great and high, 

and had twelve gates, 

and at the gates twelve angels, 

and names written thereon, 

which are the names of the twelve tribes 

of the children of Israel:

13 On the east three gates; 

on the north three gates; 

on the south three gates; 

and on the west three gates.

Revelation 21:14-17

King James Version

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, 

and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 And he that talked with me 

had a golden reed to measure the city, 

and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

16 And the city lieth foursquare, 

and the length is as large as the breadth: 

and he measured the city with the reed,

 twelve thousand furlongs. 

The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

17 And he measured the wall thereof, 

an hundred and forty and four cubits, 

according to the measure of a man, 

that is, of the angel.

Revelation 21:18-21

King James Version

18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: 

and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

19 And the foundations of the wall of the city 

were garnished with all manner of precious stones. 

The first foundation was jasper; 

the second, sapphire; 

the third, a chalcedony; 

the fourth, an emerald;

20 The fifth, sardonyx; 

the sixth, sardius; 

the seventh, chrysolyte; 

the eighth, beryl; 

the ninth, a topaz; 

the tenth, a chrysoprasus; 

the eleventh, a jacinth; 

the twelfth, an amethyst.

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: 

every several gate was of one pearl: 

and the street of the city was pure gold, 

as it were transparent glass.

Revelation 21:22

King James Version

22 And I saw no temple therein: 

for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb 

are the temple of it.

Revelation 21:23

King James Version

23 And the city had no need of the sun, 

neither of the moon, to shine in it: 

for the glory of God did lighten it, 

and the Lamb is the light thereof.

Revelation 21:24-25

King James Version

24 And the nations of them which are saved 

shall walk in the light of it: 

and the kings of the earth do bring 

their glory and honour into it.

25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: 

for there shall be no night there.

26 And they shall bring the glory and honour 

of the nations into it.

Revelation 21:27

King James Version

27 And there shall in no wise enter into it 

any thing that defileth, 

neither whatsoever worketh abomination, 

or maketh a lie: 

but they which are written 

in the Lamb's book of life.

Does that bring you joy yet?

Does that bring tears to your eyes?

That there won't be tears anymore.

That death will not visit us anymore.

That you won't worry about thieves, and feel secure.

That you'll be in the presence of GOD, and the LAMB.

That there won't be crime anymore.

You can FINALLY live happily, peacefully, harmoniously.

Imagine nations, and kings, to be under GOD.

Oh, such a lovely thought!

Won't you want to live under such circumstances?

And be governed by GOD, with no one usurping His power?

I would.

Believers really have much to look forward to.

And it is for ALL, who care to know the LORD.

And repent, and get right with GOD.

Believing in His Son, JESUS.

It's time you did.
