Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
God has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of Christ. The kingdom of Christ could only reign over a people who were in proper spiritual relationship to Him. In a coming day, Jesus will return to receive us unto Himself and at the end of the Tribulation, He will return to earth, set up His kingdom with Jerusalem as its capital, and reign for one thousand years. At the end of that time, Christ will put down all enemies under His feet and then deliver up the kingdom to God the Father, which will inaugurate the eternal kingdom, that will continue throughout eternity.
