Psalm 65: What Did Jesus Christ Prophesy About Earth?
"Thou visitest the Earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the River of God"
The planet known as Earth is not only the home of humanity. Humans were created from the Earth (see Adam and Adamah and The Thinker From The Soil) by means of the life-giving Spirit of God (see What Makes Physical Life Possible?). According to the Word of God, the Earth was also created to be the place of Salvation and Eternal Life (see What Was The Lesson Of John 3:16? and Who Can Be Saved?).
The Messiah (see What Happened When The Messiah Arrived In Heaven? and What Happens After The Messiah Returns?) often spoke of the Earth in His teachings and prophecies. Everything that He said consistently described the purpose and eternal future of Earth.
A few examples:
"5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." (Matthew 5:5 KJV; see also What Will Happen On Your Next Birthday?)
The Book of Revelation (see Revelation: Thy Kingdom Come) was written in accordance with what Jesus Christ spoke and revealed to the apostle John.
"1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: 1:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw." (Revelation 1:1-2 KJV)
Jesus Christ then continued His teachings and prophecies about Earth that He began with what was recorded by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. "Thy Kingdom Come" is going to happen. Earth will be the home of God and the family that He created.
"21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
King David was also a prophet (e.g. see David's View From The Cross and David's View Of Hell Fire and Paradise) who was very well-aware of the Gospel of the coming Kingdom of God on Earth (e.g. see The Patriotism Prophecy and David's Resurrection Prophecy).
"65:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm and Song of David.
