Upon Jesus’ second coming, there will be a bodily resurrection for everyone, to either eternal salvation or condemnation. The time between Jesus’ resurrection and our resurrection is a lengthy ministry season of love, grace, and mercy as news of the gospel goes forth, inviting sinners to repent of sin and enjoy the present and future salvation of Jesus Christ. We long for the day when God’s Kingdom will be established upon this earth by His son Jesus Christ as he ushers in the fullness of the Kingdom of God.
Something to consider: God reigns forever with us on earth.
