Who Really Controls the World?
Do you think it is . . .
WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
“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
What 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.
