Since Jesus prayed, "On earth as it is in heaven," I'm thinking that there must be a coming kingdom on earth in the image of a heavenly kingdom...

That the kingdom of God is where God exists with man, that the heavenly
kingdom must be where flesh and blood cannot exist, that man must be
born again as spirit to exist with God in Heaven.

Since Jesus came on earth speaking of an earthly kingdom, after which,
he rose again and entered into a heavenly kingdom...

So...the Kingdom of Heaven is of "The Promise," where eternal things exist, even eternal life. And if a man say: Seek ye first the kingdom of heaven, you can be sure it is built upon the same foundation, the same way of life, that you keep the spirit of the commandments. That you love God, and love your neighbor as yourself; for the Spirit is born of love and truth.

And if you ask, "What is the purpose of man?" You should consider that any "Purpose" besides the type like the pangs of our belly that urge us to eat, must exist in a mind. Purpose cannot exist where there is no mind. There must be a higher mind of some sort for a higher purpose to exist. And whatever a man decides that purpose is, that is his purpose; and it
indeed exists in his mind. It is his purpose. And the mind of man should consider the purpose of the pangs of his belly that urges him to eat and if there is complete mindlessness he can do no more than try to satisfy this urge built into him and the reckoning of his own being and creation cannot be considered. For these things require a mind to be recognized.

So the Word of God works in the minds of men. "And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth..." this is the easy part, but it continues, "...and subdue it...". Such an important word as "Subdue," should be searched for all the meanings of it. So I reach for my copy of 'The American College Dictionary'
Copyright 1963, 1964, by Random House, Inc.

And "Subdue," has seven directions or degrees given here:

1. to conquer and bring into subjection.
2. to overpower by superior force; to overcome.
3. to bring into moral subjection, as by persuasion or by inspiring awe or fear; render submissive (to).
4. to repress (feelings. impulses, etc.).
5. to bring (land) under cultivation.
6. to reduce the intensity, force, or vividness of (sound, light, color, etc.); tone down; soften.
7. to allay (inflammation, etc.)

To "Allay"?

1. to put at rest; quite (tumult, fear, suspicion, etc.); appease (wrath).
2. to mitigate; relieve or alleviate: to allay pain.

Therefore, let us consider. Let us exercise our minds. For to make an error, or a mistake, are common obstacles not considered evil or we would be afraid to even try and do. But to recognize a mistake and cover it, to hide it, and not try to correct it is an evil where man runs head on to build for his own benefit and the end is a great falling with much destruction. Our way should be built upon truth and love, not deception which is a gateway to hell. For surely there is One in Heaven that will shake our concepts to test whether they will stand or not: "And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may
remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 12:27-28

And, "Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise." Hebrews 10:35-36
