These three expressions (Nations, Tribes, Peoples), in addition to the different languages, make it clear that Jehovah God, by means his Kingdom, will unify the different peoples
while taking into account their cultural (Nations), tribal (Tribes) and racial (Peoples) differences. We can expect that, futures, there will be a linguistic unity which purpose is to unify in the diversity, particularly in the worship of Jehovah God: "For
then I will change the language of the peoples to a pure language, So that all of them may call on the name of Jehovah, To serve him shoulder to shoulder" (Zephaniah 3: 9)). There will be nations without nationalism and patriotism, tribes without tribalism
and races diversities without racism. There will be lovely unity in lovely diversities.
Jesus Christ named the future humankind in the earthly paradise as the 12 tribes
of Israel: “Jesus said to them: “Truly I say to you, in the re-creation, when the Son of man sits down on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will sit on 12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel” (Matthew 19:28). Also, in the
prophecy of Ezekiel chapters 40-48, there the symbolic description of the earthly administration of the Kingdom of God, in the framework of the 12 tribes of Israel. This expression of "12 tribes of Israel" is prophetic, in the sense that for about fifteen
centuries, the nation of Israel has been the theocratic representation of what Jehovah God would do on all the earth by means His Kingdom: "For since the Law has a shadow of the good things to come, but not the very substance of the things" (Hebrews 10:1).
Even before the founding of the nation of Israel, Jehovah God made the covenant with Abraham (the prime Hebrew ancestor), that by his seed would be blessed all nations: "And by means
of your offspring all nations of the earth will obtain a blessing for themselves because you have listened to my voice" (Genesis 22:18). And as the Apostle Paul wrote under inspiration, through this Abrahamic covenant, Abraham became spiritually circumcised
as he was uncircumcised in his flesh: "And he received a sign—namely, circumcision—as a seal of the righteousness by the faith he had while in his uncircumcised state, so that he might be the father of all those having faith while uncircumcised,
in order for righteousness to be counted to them; 12 and so that he might be a father to circumcised offspring, not only to those who adhere to circumcision but also to those who walk orderly in the footsteps of the faith that our father Abraham had while
in the uncircumcised state" (Romans 4: 11,12). That means, in the future, all the Nations, Tribes and Peoples, uncircumcised in their flesh, could be spiritually circumcised in their heart, in the framework of the Abrahamic covenant, as the "Israel of
God", the Christian congregation or the Christian church. Also, the spiritual circumcision of the heart, would be done in the framework of the New Covenant written by God "in their heart", according the prophecy of Jeremiah (31:31-33). It is Jesus-Christ
who validated this New Covenant, by his own blood (Luke 22:19,20; Hebrews12:24).
And as the apostle Paul pointed out, under inspiration, what was in the flesh, the covenant
of circumcision as the identity of a Jew, would become spiritual as identity of spiritual Jew, part of the spiritual nation of the "Israel of God", the Christian Congregation or Christian Church, through Jesus Christ: "Circumcision is, in fact, of benefit
only if you practice law; but if you are a transgressor of law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision. If, therefore, an uncircumcised person keeps the righteous requirements of the Law, his uncircumcision will be counted as circumcision, will it not? And
the physically uncircumcised person will, by carrying out the Law, judge you who are a transgressor of law despite having its written code and circumcision. For he is not a Jew who is one on the outside, nor is circumcision something on the outside, on the
flesh. But he is a Jew who is one on the inside, and his circumcision is that of the heart by spirit and not by a written code. That person’s praise comes from God, not from people" (Romans 2: 25-29).
So, the future earthly 12 tribes of Israel, represent the spiritual Israel of God in the future earthly paradise: "As for all those who walk orderly by this rule of conduct, peace and mercy be upon them, yes, upon the
Israel of God" (Matthew 19:28; Luc 22:30; Galatians 6:16).
And the Kingdom of God, will take into account this cultural and racial diversity of all "nations, tribes,
peoples and tongues", united (in their diversities) in the only worship of Jehovah God by means of Jesus Christ, His Son: "You are worthy, Jehovah our God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power, because you created all things, and because of your
will they came into existence and were created" (Revelation 4: 11, Zephaniah 3: 9 "the pure language" which will unify the peoples in the same worship of Jehovah God (The
End of Patriotism)).
