Living under the reign of God

A scripture on the reign of God:

And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.” (Mark 1:11)

From Article 24 of the Confession of Faith from a Mennonite Perspective:

We place our hope in the reign of God and in its fulfillment in the day when Christ our ascended Lord will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead. He will gather his church, already living under the reign of God according to the pattern of God’s future. We believe in God’s final victory, in the end of this present age of struggle between good and evil, in the resurrection of the dead, and in the appearance of a new heaven and a new earth. There the people of God will reign with Christ in justice, righteousness, and peace.
