24.    We place our hope in the reign of God and its fulfillment in the day when Christ will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead. He will gather his church, which is already living under the reign of God. We await God’s final victory, the end of this present age of struggle, the resurrection of the dead, and a new heaven and a new earth. There the people of God will reign with Christ in justice, righteousness, and peace forever and ever. (Exod. 15:18; Judg. 8:23; Zech. 14:9; Rev. 5:13-14; Rev. 7:9-17; Rev. 11:15; 15:3-4; Rev. 21:1-4)
