Jesus returned already and "Babylon has fallen", the place 'where Christ was crucified'.
Because thats what Christians believe would happen after Jesus returns as a conqueror... and take control as the ruler of the world.
The Christian era began back then. We are tasked with the responsibility of creating the 'utopia'.
But it turns out that Jesus received "authority" over the earth shortly after his resurrection. The utopian era should have begun way back then. There is a genuine problem there.

Being given authority over the earth, is obviously a big deal. So if the Bible tells us Jesus was given authority over heaven and earth, then its as good as saying Jesus started ruling the world.
Never has power been so necessary and yet so useless at the same time. Either crap or get off the darn pot, Cheezus Rice. If you're not willing to drive, hand over the stinkin' keys and let us get the job done for you. Don't worry, you can damn us later.

The Bible takes a lot of liberties with what Jesus said and did after his "supposed death and resurrection!"
When Jesus was in the desert, during his vision quest, we're told, (although there were no witnesses, and I can't really picture that Jesus would go bragging to his buddies how he kick some Satan arse) that Satan offered Jesus his domain, all of the Earth, if he would bow to him. Jesus turned Satan's offer down.
Both, Jesus' "temptation" and his "resurrection" are incredibly flawed stories. If Jesus was God, how could he have been in a position of temptation? If Jesus was God, how could he have "sacrificed" anything? If Jesus is "in charge" why is there still so much oppression of the innocent?
I can only believe that the story of Jesus being "God" or even the son of "God", born of a virgin, died for the sins of the world and resurrected as the "ruler of the world" is false. Either that, or, Jesus failed in his mission and Satan won. Personally, I reject the story as mere mythology.

Jesus rules now, at the right hand of God.
So he was to sit at God's right hand UNTIL the time arrived for him to begin ruling as king.
My suggestion would be for you to consider living Christ's "utopia" right now.
They are all suppose to accept jesus christ and those will live in christ's utopia. you still have to go through the rest of the things in the remaining books of the Bible to get to that Utopia.
We are perfected and glorified in this life by sanctification, according to Paul in the New Testament.
Jesus Christ has authority on earth and in heaven. We on the other hand do not get perfected until after our resurrection. This existence that we call life is actually death. Death is what we inherited from our first father Adam. The last Adam brought life so that after we put off this corruptible body (carnal flesh) we can become like Him. The catch here is we have to shed this carnal piece of flesh before that begins to happen.
