This world is not merely divided it is being torn asunder! Never in human history have we faced such international crimes and brutality as stalk the earth today!
Every nation has problems that cannot be solved by their governments. China with its type of government enslaves people for speaking their minds and wanting freedom. Those who do are put to death or put in prison for a long time and the same holds true for Cuba. Russia is still a communist nation and still has massive problems they can’t solve. Africa is full of misery and suffering of every kind. In Palestine, Jew and Arab are still at each others’ throats!
Look at what the U.N has done. Wherever the forces of the United Nations have gone the world has remained hopelessly divided. There are no exceptions. In Korea, the U.N. failed to unite the country. Korea is a tragic festering wound on the world’s soul.
Where is the supreme authority that can bring real peace to Korea and to 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 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 God, step in and take over Supreme Authority and bring us harmony and peace?”
Here is what news analysts and commentators, politicians and preachers don’t understand. The world today is divided because God has 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 law.
Then, just before man would destroy all life, God will intervene! It is because men have cut themselves off from God, have rejected His law, 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.
This is what God says about the United States and Great Britain: “Why should ye be stricken any more? Ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick (government), and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it” (Isa. 1:5-6). 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 world violence, except temporarily, because human beings do not know the way to unity and peace.
Notice the shocking description of man, of our politician 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 ways; and the way of peace have they not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes” (Rom 3:11-18).
Here are pictured the World leaders and politicians, certainly there is no basis for peace and harmony in them. 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 to 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 nations.
The Great God is going to intervene in world affairs. This 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. They have taught another gospel.
But, what are the results of this false gospel. Religion did not save people in Africa despite all the missionaries. The religion of Cuba and Venezuela, Russia and China has not saved its people from dictatorships. And the reason, plainly stated, is that the religions of this age are the religions of man, not 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 Jesus Christ over 19 centuries ago!
The religious and political leaders hated that message. They put to death Jesus 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 shall be preached (and published – Mark 13:10) in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matt. 24:14). You are hearing that gospel right here on this website.
Before God intervenes in human affairs, man is being given this last opportunity to accept voluntarily the Supreme Authority of the Great God. And if the world will not accept God’s rule voluntarily, which of course, it will not then God will allow the nations to plunge heedlessly toward world suicide. Then, suddenly, before the final button would be pushed by mortal flesh to snuff out all human life, God shall forcibly take away all power and authority from man and shake man to his senses!
The atheist 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 now time that we awake to the seriousness of this age and of this decade! No other work is fulfilling this prophecy, because no other work has the true Gospel which Jesus Christ 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 peace!
