17 Jesus is telling us to pray and ask that God will send King Jesus in glory with His angels in flaming fire and gather His children from the four winds and establish His Kingdom on earth for the 1,000 year reign.
18 Matthew 13:41-43 “The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, and throw them into the fiery furnace. In
19 that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.”
20 Matthew 25:31-34 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the
21 nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the
22 goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”
23 Revelation 5: “And they sang a new song, saying, ‘Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you
24 ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.’”
25 This is a prayer of longing by His kingdom citizens who realize that earth is NOT their home.
26 Philippians 3:20-21 “But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform
27 our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.”
