END WARS AND WRONG POSSESSION

“He will judge between many peoples and will settle dis-

putes for strong nations far and wide. They will beat their

swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.

Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they

train for war anymore”

(Micah 4:3).

God will end the wrong possession of the earth. In the be-

ginning, God gave rule and dominion to Adam (Gen. 1), who

in turn gave it to Satan at the Fall (Gen. 2). God promised to

reclaim it through the Messiah (Gen. 3), Who is the second

and last Adam (Rom. 5:14).

Christ is the Kinsman, the Redeemer of mankind. He paid

the price for redemption by shedding His blood (Rev. 5:9). At

the end, He will evict Satan and his forces from their temporary

position of authority on the earth (Rev. 19:20; 20:3). He then

establishes the theocratic rule as it was intended for Adam, the

first man (and the last until Christ), who was created in His

image.

“I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill. Ask of me,

and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the

earth your possession”

(Psalms 2:6, 8).
