How will God’s purpose for mankind yet be realized? Necessarily, by removing the condemnation resting upon mankind because of Adam’s transgression. This God made possible by having his Son come to earth and take man’s place in death. As we read of Jesus: “See, the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world!” Yes, even as the sin of one perfect man, Adam, brought death to the human race, so the sacrifice of one perfect man, Jesus, opens the way for all lovers of righteousness to get life.(John 1:29)

However, before mankind can receive the benefits of Jesus’ sacrifice or ransom, Satan and all his cohorts, both visible and invisible, must first be put out of the way, as they would obstruct all such activity in behalf of man. This Jesus Christ and his invisible armies will do at Armageddon, at “the war of the great day of God the Almighty.” In that universal war all those on earth who do not take their stand for YHWH God will be destroyed, whereas Satan and his invisible hosts will be hurled into an abyss of deathlike inactivity for a thousand years.(Revelation 16:14, 16; 20:1-3)

Armageddon’s survivors, the lovers of Jehovah and righteousness, will then see Jesus’ prayer being fulfilled: “Let your will come to pass, as in heaven, also upon earth.” That will mean a “new heavens and a new earth” in which righteousness will dwell. (Matthew 6:10; 2 Peter 3:13)
That heavenly kingdom of God, which will realize God’s purpose for mankind, consists of a King, Jesus Christ, and 144,000 royal associates. These associates are chosen from among men by YHWH God, and are an exception to the rest of mankind and will be the only ones ever taken to heaven.(Revelation 14: 1, 3)

As the seed of Abraham, Christ and his associates will bless all mankind. Under their Kingdom rule the effects of sin and death will gradually be removed. Their first subjects, the Armageddon survivors, the “great crowd” of Revelation 7, will share in a token fulfillment of the procreation mandate, bringing forth children in righteousness. They will also exercise wise, just and loving dominion over the animal creation and subdue the earth, making it a paradise. And then those in the memorial tombs, or in God’s memory, will hear Jesus’ “voice and come out.”(John 5: 28, 29)

At the end of the 1,000-year Kingdom rule Satan and his demons will be loosed so as to try all those dwelling on earth. All who succumb to selfish temptation will be destroyed with Satan and his demons. Those that withstand the test will be declared righteous by God and given the right to everlasting life. Then God’s purpose will be fully realized as all mankind enjoy endless life in an earthly paradise, unitedly worshiping Jehovah in spirit and in truth and dwelling together in happiness, love and peace.

Wouldn't you like to share in YHWH God's glorious purpose for mankind, so certain to be realized, and soon? Then give him the exclusive devotion all mankind owe him and he rightfully requires of them.
