The end (1 Cor. 15:24)

“Then comes the end.

When he hands over

The kingdom

To God the Father,

After he has destroyed

Every ruler,

Every authority,

And every power.”

εἶτα τὸ τέλος, ὅταν παραδιδοῖ τὴν βασιλείαν τῷ Θεῷ καὶ Πατρί, ὅταν καταργήσῃ πᾶσαν ἀρχὴν καὶ πᾶσαν ἐξουσίαν καὶ δύναμιν,

Paul said that the end would come (εἶτα τὸ τέλος), when Christ handed over the kingdom (ὅταν παραδιδοῖ τὴν βασιλείαν) to God the Father (τῷ Θεῷ καὶ Πατρί), after he has destroyed (ὅταν καταργήσῃ) every ruler (πᾶσαν ἀρχὴν), every authority (καὶ πᾶσαν ἐξουσίαν), and every power (καὶ δύναμιν).  Paul then explained the end times, when Jesus would hand over this kingdom to God the Father.  This would be after Christ had destroyed all the rulers, anybody in authority, and every power on earth.  The judgment day or the end times would bring an end to earthly existence.  The followers of Jesus would enter into eternal life with him and his Father, as all evil would be destroyed.  Are you expecting the end times?
