Just What Do You Mean ... BORN AGAIN?
EARTH. For He shall have "made us kings and priests;
and we shall reign on the earth" (Rev. 5:10).
The First Thousand Years

over the entire vast universe - literally ALL THINGS. For
that is the power that has been given to Christ, and we
are joint-heirs, to become joint-INHERITORS with Him.

universe] are delivered unto me of my Father. .

given ALL THINGS into his hand."
