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:

Earth

"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?)

"6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:10 KJV; see also The True Gospel Of Christ)

"12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." (Matthew 12:40 KJV; see also Jonah: Three Days And Three Nights and Counting On The Resurrection)

"24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." (Matthew 24:29-31 KJV; see also The Feast Of Trumpets Prophecy)

"28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth." (Matthew 28:18 KJV; see also What Happened When The Messiah Arrived In Heaven? and The Kingdom Of The LORD God).

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.

21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful." (Revelation 21:2-5 KJV)

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.

Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed. 65:2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. 65:3 Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away. 65:4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

65:5 By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea: 65:6 Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power: 65:7 Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people. 65:8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.

65:9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it. 65:10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof. 65:11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness. 65:12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side. 65:13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing." (Psalm 65:1-13 KJV)
