Who Really Controls the World?

Do you think it is . . .

  • God?

  • humankind?

  • someone else?

 WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

If God were the ruler of this world, would there be so much suffering?

If God were the ruler of this world, would there be so much suffering?

“The Evil One controls the whole world.”—1 John 5:19.

“The Son of God came . . . to destroy the devil’s work.”—1 John 3:8,New Century Version.

WHAT THAT CAN MEAN FOR YOU

Logical explanations for the world’s problems.—Revelation 12:12.

Reason to believe that our world will change for the better.—1 John 2:17.

CAN WE REALLY BELIEVE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS?

Yes, for at least three reasons:

  • Satan’s rulership is doomed. Jehovah is determined to bring Satan’s control over mankind to an end. He promises to “bring to nothing . . . the Devil” and undo all the damage that Satan has caused.—Hebrews 2:14, New World Translation.

  • God has chosen Jesus Christ to rule the world. Jesus is the complete opposite of this world’s present cruel, selfish ruler. Concerning Jesus’ kingship, God promises: “He will have pity on the lowly and the poor . . . From oppression and from violence he will rescue them.”—Psalm 72:13, 14.

  • God cannot lie. The Bible plainly states: “It is impossible for God to lie.” (Hebrews 6:18) When Jehovah promises to do something, it is as good as done! (Isaiah 55:10, 11) “The ruler of this world will be cast out.”—John 12:31.

 TO THINK ABOUT

1102013400_univ_cnt_3_smWhat will the world be like after its ruler is removed?

Take your Bible and see, it answers that question at PSALM 37:10, 11 and REVELATION 21:3, 4.
