    OK. So you aren't sure that you are correct, but you recognize that you might be wrong and teaching a falsehood at the moment?

    Certainly. Matter of fact early in teaching a new Bible student I openly tell them, I may be correct and I may be wrong in what I teach you, God's word is truth. You have to determine for yourself if what I say is correct or not.

    Okay so you believe that a perfect world will still have its struggles but no harmful conflict between humans maybe?

    The perfect world will be brought back to God's original purpose. When satan and those who side with him are destroyed, we will technically be right back to the start, moving forward on the path that God intended.

    He's not "waiting" for anything. It's up to us. His promise is clear...But most reject it.

    Does Jesus describe the Kingdom in detail? I looked on my own, but didn't find it.

    Yes, but would humans still have struggles to overcome?

    Well I rarely come across a person who takes their logic to their natural conclusion like you have. Many don't recognise that if beliefs can change that current beliefs might also be prone to change. They often believe that their current beliefs are definitely true despite past experience.

    I believe that isn't exactly true. The scripture mentions trees for healing which suggests sickness that needs to be healed. And although there is no death from old age there are other ways to die. That is why the gods who were said to have eternal life are no longer with us.

    I believe they do when God speaks them.

    But you cannot *know* it is from God. You can only know you experienced something you can't account for.

    The Bible identifies what the Kingdom is to a great degree sir.

    Enjoy this video: https://www.jw.org/en/library/books/good-news-from-god/what-is-gods-kingdom/video-kingdom-come/

    This may help:
    God’s Kingdom is a real government established by Jehovah God. “The kingdom of God” is also called “the kingdom of heaven” in the Bible, since it rules from heaven. (Mark 1:14, 15; Matthew 4:17, King James Version) It shares many attributes of human governments, yet it is superior to them in every way.

    • Rulers. God has appointed Jesus Christ as King of the Kingdom and has given him more authority than any human ruler could ever have. (Matthew 28:18) Jesus uses this power only for good, since he has already proved to be a reliable and compassionate Leader. (Matthew 4:23; Mark 1:40, 41; 6:31-34; Luke 7:11-17) Under God’s direction, Jesus has selected persons from all nations who will “rule as kings over the earth” with him in heaven.—Revelation 5:9, 10.

    • Duration. Unlike human governments, which come and go, God’s Kingdom “will never be brought to ruin.”—Daniel 2:44.

    • Subjects. Anyone who does what God requires can be a subject of God’s Kingdom, without regard for ancestry or birthplace.—Acts 10:34, 35.

    • Laws. The laws (or commandments) of God’s Kingdom do more than just prohibit wrong behavior. They raise the moral character of its subjects. For example, the Bible says: “‘You must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. The second, like it, is this, ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-39) Love of God and neighbor moves subjects of the Kingdom to act in the best interests of others.

    • Education. While God’s Kingdom sets high standards for its subjects, it also teaches people how to meet those standards.—Isaiah 48:17, 18.

    • Mission. The Kingdom of God doesn’t enrich its rulers at the expense of its subjects. Instead, it will accomplish God’s will, including the promise that those who love him will live forever on a paradise earth.—Isaiah 35:1, 5, 6; Matthew 6:10; Revelation 21:1-4.

    (Isaiah 33:24) . . .And no resident will say: “I am sick.” The people dwelling in the land will be pardoned for their error.

    This is prophecy Muffled, as never in history has this been fulfilled. I sure hope you are wrong.
