Needed: A Supreme Authority!

This world in not merely divided it is being torn asunder! Never in human history have we faced such international crimes and brutality as stalks the earth today.

Look at what the United Nations has done. Wherever the forces of the United Nations have gone the world has remained hopelessly divided. There is no exception. In Korea, the U.N. failed to unite the country. North Korea is a tragic, festering wound on the worlds-soul.

In Palestine, Jews and Arabs are still at each other’s throats. There is no final, supreme authority in the United Nations here either!

What is the supreme authority that will bring peace to South and North Korea, to China, Russia, South America, Palestine, Africa and the rest of the world?

Have we not learned from history that no human government has ever succeeded in bringing lasting peace?

Let’s admit it! The world is so completely divided separated by a veritable “iron curtain” that there is no possibility of a workable world government of man’s creation.

Human beings are not willing of themselves to relinquish their independence to an all-powerful Supreme Authority.

“Why,” asks the doubter, the skeptic, the atheist, “doesn’t God if there is an all-powerful One step in and take over Supreme Authority and bring us harmony and peace?

Here is what news analysts and commentators, politicians and preachers do not understand. The world today is divided because God had decreed it! The Creator and Supreme Ruler of the universe has a great purpose and that purpose demands that man be permitted to go his own way for 6,000 years, to set up his own governments, to establish his own religions, to seek to bring peace without God and without His laws.

Then just before man would destroy all human life, God will intervene!

It is because men have cut themselves off from God, have rejected His Laws as God knew they would do that we have this divided world, tearing itself apart at the seams, suffering from all kinds of festering political sores.

There can be no unity, no lasting harmony without God’s law. God’s law is a law of love because God is love. No human government can stop the present violence, except temporarily, because human beings do not know the way to unity and peace.

Notice the shocking description of man, of our politicians and statesmen:’ “There is none that understands, there is none that seeks after God. They are all gone out of the way, with their tongues they have used deceit whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: their feet are swift to shed blood: destruction and misery are in their way; and the way of peace have they not known” (Rom. 3:11-17).

Here are pictured the Communist leaders, the dictators of Iran, Cuba, China, North Korea and elsewhere, certainly there is no basis for peace and harmony in these nations!

Even the “sweet talk” of Western leaders is not solving world problems, but multiplying them! “There is none that does good, no, not one” (Rom. 3:12). Our leaders seemingly have no genuine purpose other than preserve a tottering status quo. They know not the way of peace!

The only hope is divine intervention by the God whom the doubter, the skeptic and the atheist taunt. Divine intervention by the Supreme Authority over all the universe.

The Almighty God will intervene in world affairs. That is the very message of the gospel, the good news which Jesus Christ brought. But the good news of God’s soon intervention in human affairs is the very message which the religious leaders have sought to hide from the people. The theme song of religion for too long has been, “God is in His Heaven and all is right with the world.”

But all is not right with the world. Religion did not save Africa despite all the missionaries. The religion of Cuba has not saved its people. Plainly stated, the religions of this age are the religions of man, they do not have the truth of God.

Now, at the close of 6000 years of human history, just before God takes all power and authority away from mortal man forever, God’s last warning is being sounded around the world. It is the thundering proclamation of the same good news of God’s kingdom which God sent by His Son Jesus Christ almost 20 centuries ago!

The religious and political leaders hated that message. They crucified Christ so they could continue unhampered in their own customs and traditions. Make no mistake about it the world hates that message as much today as it did then. The world does not want to hear about God’s intervention in human affairs. It will try to stop the good news of the New World to come when God’s kingdom will come and His Will shall be done on earth as it is now being done in Heaven!

The only reason that World War III has not started is simply that “this gospel of the Kingdom has not yet been preached [and” published” (Mark 13:10)] in all the world for a witness unto all nations. Then shall the end come” (Matt. 24:14).

Before God intervenes in human affairs, man is being given this last opportunity to accept voluntarily the Supreme Authority of the Almighty Creator. And if the world will not accept God’s rule voluntarily which, of course, it will not do then God will allow the nations to plunge heedlessly toward world suicide. Then, suddenly, before the final button would be pushed by moral flesh to snuff out all human life, God shall forcible take away all power and authority from man and shake man to his senses!

The atheists may taunt God now for allowing all this human suffering. But then he shall realize to his chagrin that if God would not have intervened at the very moment He did, all humanity would have been wiped out.

It is time that we awake to the seriousness of this age and of this decade! The only reason that God has not allowed this world to destroy itself is so the good news of the coming Kingdom of God can be proclaimed to the world.

No other work, except God’s True Church, is fulfilling this prophesy because no other work has the true Gospel which Jesus Himself preached. The competing denominations and sects of this world are preaching about Christ while they reject His Message. They have seized upon His name to cloak their own traditions!

It is high time we wake up, get on our economic feet and help complete the proclamation of the good news of the New World to come when God will be the Supreme Authority over all the earth. Divine intervention is humanity’s only hope. God will bring us lasting peace!
