• To exalt Christ amongst the nations and to usher in His kingdom upon the earth (Zech 14.9). The Lord’s prayer ‘Your kingdom come … on earth’ is fully realized
  • To provide a forum for the fulfillment of the unconditional covenants: Abrahamic, Davidic, Palestinian and New Covenants: Israel becomes a great nation, Christ sits on David’s throne, the land of Israel becomes very fruitful and God writes His Law on the hearts of both Jew and Gentile
  • To restore Israel to her intended place as His servant and witness amongst the nations (Isa 43.10)
  • To provide a period of perfect communion between the saints of the first resurrection and their Lord (Rev 20.4-6)
  • To enable millions of Gentiles to come to know the Lord. The Lord’s people will not only be Israel, rather, they will come from many nations (Zech 2.11)
  • To provide a ‘day of rest’ for nature. Not only will mankind be in near-perfect communion with the Lord, but also will nature. It is probable that imperfect aspects of nature, such a drought, locust, earthquake and flood will be removed (except when ordained as judgement on a nation). Nature will be at peace (Rom 8.21)
