"Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as it is in heaven, also upon earth. (Matthew 6:10)

Under God's heavenly Kingdom, we will enjoy the rulership that all righthearted individuals now long for. Psalms 145:16 will then find fulfillment in its completest sense: "You [Jehovah God] are opening your hand and satisfying the desire of every living thing." Moreover, Isaiah 32:1 says: "Look! A king [Christ Jesus in heaven] will reign for righteousness itself; and as respects princes [Christ's earthly representatives], they will rule as princes for justice itself." Regarding the King Jesus Christ, Isaiah 9:7 foretells: "To the abundance of the princely rule and to peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and upon his kingdom in order to establish it firmly and to sustain it by means of righteousness, from now on and to time indefinite." Can you see yourself living under that just rulership?
