Will Christ One Day Rule In Jerusalem?

Do you believe that at Christ’s second coming He will set up a kingdom on earth and will rule personally and literally from Jerusalem? 

No. The coming of Christ is the end of all earthly existence (2 Peter 3:12; 1 Corinthians 15:23, 24; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).

Additionally, in Jeremiah 22:28-30 we read of an evil ruler named Coniah (Jeconiah). It is sworn by God that no son of his would ever prosper reigning in Jerusalem. In Matthew 1:11, we find that Jesus is a descendant of this same Coniah (Jeconiah). Thus, Jesus could not prosper reigning on a physical throne established in Jerusalem. Jesus is now reigning over His spiritual kingdom, the church.
