2 He shall destroy the sinners out of the land; and This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth; and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations, Isa 14:26. Listen! This is coming, and soon; just as described in Revelation. From the Word of the Lord within:"I will make obedience the fruit of righteousness. The Lord shall establish righteousness throughout the earth. It will be done." To establish righteousness throughout the earth, evil will have to be destroyed. But, as Revelation 21:1 explains in detail, there is a copy of the earth in our hearts; and after that earth is cleansed, it is a part of the new heaven and earth, with righteousness throughout. The new earth and heaven is the prize for each person who enters the kingdom. Could there eventually be a cleansing of the earth that we know and live in? Certainly, if the Lord wills it, it will be done, as he has cleansed many earths already.
