While Jesus Christ was here on earth he taught his followers to pray for God's kingdom to come and for God's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven Matthew 6:9, 10.
Jesus Christ demonstrated what God's kingdom will do he fed the poor, healed the sick Matthew 15:29-38.
Raised some of the people that had fallen asleep in death back to life right here on earth one of them was Jesus Christ friend Lazarus that had been laying in a burial tomb for 4 days John 11:11-44.
As the future ruler of God's Kingdom Jesus Christ gave us a beautiful preview of what God's kingdom will do for its subjects Revelation 11:15.
Very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21: 1-5 jw.org.
