(ORDO NEWS) — Today, many people are concerned about the question: “How real is the danger of a third world war? ”
Interestingly, most scientists deny its possibility, because, in their opinion, it will definitely lead to the death of our planet. But for me, even more convincing evidence is the biblical point of view on this issue.
This unique book gives a completely different, hopeful picture of the future of humanity. It makes it clear that what lies ahead for people is not war, but, on the contrary, universal peace! “He will judge the right between peoples, he will resolve the disputes of many tribes.
They will beat swords into plowshares, spears into garden knives, nations will no longer raise swords against each other, and the art of war will be forgotten” (Isaiah 2:4; Modern translation).
That is, we see that in the future there will be no weapons and, accordingly, there will be nothing to fight with. And also, there will be no one to fight, since military professions will cease to exist.
But it is important to understand that general disarmament will not be the result of the activity of human forms of government, but the result of the intervention of Almighty God: “In all the earth He stops wars: he breaks bows, crushes spears, burns chariots with fire” (Psalm 46:10; Modern translation)
And this will not be a war with people, but a war of the almighty God with the political and military systems of this evil world. It is called Armageddon in the Bible, and in it our Creator will destroy all the forces of evil.
“These are demonic spirits, working signs; they go out to the kings of the earth of the whole universe in order to gather them for battle on that great day of God Almighty. And he gathered them together to the place which in Hebrew is called Armageddon” (Revelation 16:14, 16 NT).
Unfortunately, today people often mean the destruction of our beautiful planet by Armageddon. Of course, the Apocalypse, in its essence, will be a very dramatic event!
“And the agile will not have the strength to flee, and the strong will not hold his fortress, and the brave will not save his life. And the bravest of the brave shall flee naked in that day, says the Lord” (Amos 2:14,16 NT).
But, for people obedient to God, this will not be the end, but deliverance from evil and injustice. In fact, this will serve as the beginning of building a new, happy society under the wise leadership of Jesus Christ.
It is under his rule that people will turn our earth into a blooming Garden of Eden, as it was originally intended by the Creator:“And God blessed them, and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it” (Genesis 1:28).
The plan of God included the settlement of the whole earth by people. He also gave them a very important assignment – to protect and take care of her.
“And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden, to till it and keep it” (Genesis 2:15 NT).
And, as the Bible says, it is the righteous people who live according to God’s standards who will be able to fully enjoy eternal life in the restored paradise!
“The righteous shall inherit the earth and live on it forever” (Psalm 37:29).
So let’s look to the future not with fear, but with hope!
