1 Cor 15:24-28; Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. For “He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.
The Son Himself will be subject to (Him) God

Holy City Jerusalem

Rev 21:11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
