The promise from YHWH, our ETERNAL SOVEREIGN and CREATOR and loving Father, of The Good News Of The Wonderful World Of Tomorrow:
(Isaiah 11:1-9) (MEV) 1And there shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots. 2The Spirit of the ETERNAL shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the ETERNAL. 3He shall delight in the fear of the ETERNAL, and he shall not judge by what his eyes see, nor reprove by what his ears hear; 4but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and reprove with fairness for the meek of the earth. He shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked. 5Righteousness shall be the belt of his loins, and faithfulness the belt about his waist. 6The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 7The cow and the bear shall graze; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8The nursing child shall play by the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper's den. 9They shall not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the ETERNAL, as the waters cover the sea.
(Jeremiah 31:31-34) (WEB) 31Behold, the days come, says Yahweh, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they broke, although I was a husband to them, says Yahweh. 33But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Yahweh: I will put my law in their inward parts, and in their heart will I write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people: 34and they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know Yahweh; for they shall all know me, from their least to their greatest, says Yahweh: for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin will I remember no more.
Chapter 1 - Three World Views. Only One Will Happen.
Turn on the radio or television and what do you hear? Bad news and more bad news designed to put you into a state of fear, panic, and to terrorize you. However, we are here to tell you the Good News! Good News? Yes, the Good News of the Wonderful World of Tomorrow (WWT) and what it will be like. Take note that it will happen whether you choose to believe it or not. It is as sure as the rising of tomorrow's sun.
We hear on the news about "world peace" that will come from a one-world government. Contemplate on how humanity's view of world peace has been tried by human beings for 6,000 years to no avail. To give you a piquant example: the goal of Adolph Hitler was to bring about a thousand years of peace. Would you want Adolph's kind of "peace"? Not me!
Humanity will not, can not, bring about world peace. Why? Because to have "world peace" under human guidance is an impossibility for any number of reasons. The main reason is that the "human nature" of the rulers cannot handle total power and use it for the good of all mankind. Look at Iraq and Lebanon; people can be bombed into submission, but they cannot be forced into peace. In addition, the submission only lasts while the bombers are overhead.
Nevertheless, the good news is that there will be those who will enjoy peace in all of its abundance on planet earth. Joy and gladness will fill the earth as water fills the sea. There will be blissful happiness. Utopia? Why not? Why should it be an imaginary or impossible dream? There is a cause for today's world chaos and threat of human extinction and that cause is the way of "get and hate." In the WWT the CREATOR of the universe will replace man's way of "get and hate" with His way of "give and love" which will bring a utopia that is real and is successfully functioning.
We see all around the world that evil is happening every single day. There are natural disasters happening in catastrophic proportions and there is no sign of the patterns being broken. So how will all of this end? In addition, what will cause this world to do a total switchover where there will be peace instead of war? What will cause us to beat our swords into plowshares? A world of plenty instead of want! How will such an incredible changeover be brought about?
Most people will tell you of their thoughts trying to imagine what death is like and what eternal life is like. But, truly, what will this Wonderful World of Tomorrow look like? We can also ask other questions such as: How will this WWT be governed? Who will rule when there is peace and happiness?
Most of what we are experiencing in the education, medical, scientific, and technological fields were predicted decades ago. Now we are experiencing a sick and dying world that is traveling down a wrong path. Where is all of this taking us? We know that we are headed for some very troublesome times. We also know that there will come a time when the trouble will stop and there will be wonderful peace. Peace like you have never experienced before. Peace that is so above your thinking that it is hard even to imagine it. The peace we are speaking of is not just the cessation of war. It is peace based on each and every human being on earth having a spirit of give and love. Here is an example:
(Isaiah 11:6-9) (NKJV) 6The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard shall lie down with the young goat, The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little child shall lead them. 7The cow and the bear shall graze; Their young ones shall lie down together; And the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8The nursing child shall play by the cobra's hole, And the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper's den. 9They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the ETERNAL As the waters cover the sea.
In these pages, you will be given a surprising, exciting look into what is certain in the soon coming Wonderful World of Tomorrow, what really is ahead and why. Today there are three views, two widely held by world leaders and neither one of them is going to happen. In addition, it's the biggest, best news ever reported in the history of mankind. What actually is going to be the outcome of all this for our frenetic, entertainment-crazed, tinker-toy, gadget-buying, yet chaotically divided, sick and dying world, is something totally unseen by statesmen, scientists, religious men, educators, and world leaders.
The Enchanted World of Science.
Paradoxically, science and technology have dangled before our eyes a glittering, glamour-filled world of their making. The enchanted world of science was to be a fantastic, push-button dream world of "the three Ls", leisure, luxury and license. They have been working to produce unbelievable material devices they believe will convert this world into a glorified heaven. Ignoring the stark reality of conditions described just above, that is.
Aldous Huxley said:
"Most prophecy tends to oscillate between an extreme of gloom and the wildest optimism! The world, according to one set of seers, is headed for disaster; according to the other, the world is destined, within a generation or two, to become a kind of gigantic Disneyland in which the human race will find perpetual happiness playing with an endless assortment of ever more ingenious mechanical toys."
How true and also how ironic that those voicing the most glamorous predictions of science and industry seem to totally exclude the stark reality of world conditions, and, for that matter, seem unable to comprehend the additional snarls and problems their own predictions would bring. However, leaving the facts aside, let us take a look at some of the speculations for our future.
In his book, futurist Herman Kahn more than 30 years ago suggested that the world economy will continue to grow well into the next century bringing a growing standard of living and increasing affluence to the majority of the world's population. He painted a picture of a prosperous global utopia by the year 2176 brought about by continuing technological advances, with plenty of energy, food and raw materials for all. Kahn predicted:
"Two hundred years from now, we believe, people almost everywhere will be rich, numerous and in control of the forces of nature".
In his scenario written in 1976, the world two centuries from then, "will contain some 15 billion people with a staggering world-wide per-capita income of some $20,000, compared with only about $1,300 today."
In a previous study focusing on life in the United States in the years to CE 2000, Kahn forecasted a glittering utopia coming a great deal sooner than the world at large. He predicted that in the years just ahead, Americans would be enjoying:
"three day weekends, three or four month vacations, Southern California type living with the emphasis on family and home, high income, an abundance of material things". "People will live in ten-room houses, earn a disposable income (after taxes) of multiple tens of thousands of dollars, and enjoy a four-hour work day five days per week, or maybe even a six-hour work day and a three-day week with a four-day weekend.
In essence, we are to look forward to a life of almost complete idleness and leisure, the "good life" day after day after day. In short, a perpetual vacation. But wait would that be this Utopia? Does this kind of society sound truly good to you?
Although most of those predictions have happened, we are actually worse off today than we were 30 years ago. We have more problems today than we did when life was slower and less technological. We have less leisure time and definitely more stress.
Just for a moment think about those predictions. Think about all the many problems they have created rather than solved. Yet multiple millions, especially in the United States, still anticipate such developments hopefully in their own lifetimes while turning a blind eye to the ominous warnings by other respected scientists who see instead impending doom for large segments of the world through famine, pestilence, and war. These two scenarios do not even take into consideration what is happening in our world today e.g., the shattering of the borders between the US and Mexico, the quicksand war in the middle east, nor does it consider the effects as the world's oil markets switch from dollars to Euros.
Can a tiny segment of the population of one nation expect to succeed in achieving ever more dizzying heights of material wealth, playing with an ever more dazzling assortment of mechanical gadgets and ignore the awesome problems of the rest of the world?
Only a few decades ago there were those predicting new knowledge in biological science applied to medicine, giving new insight into, and partial control of, aging, heredity, genetic altering, mental illness, heart disease, cancer, and virus infections.
Whole hosts of ingenious devices in the fields of applied physics and advanced engineering would provide even better super-sophisticated computers, communication satellites, novel transportation techniques, space exploration probes, and a newer and more glittering array of medical instruments and techniques.
Envisioned were bigger crowds at bigger stadiums watching bigger athletic contests. Recreation, physical pleasure, and fun would be widespread. More golf courses, more swimming pools, tennis courts, dance halls, bowling alleys, high-definition color television sets, these were predicted to aid society in seeking ever more heightened pleasures.
What we got was also predicted: increased crime, gambling, sexual promiscuity, unrest, fear, hatred, air and water pollution, traffic congestion, noise, and lack of solitude. More and more there will be no place to hide.
Even back in 1976, Dr. Kahn in his study of the United States of the future admitted that the "utopian" changes in life-styles and work patterns could carry with them some traumatic consequences. "Many," he explained, "will be satisfied but others will find such a life meaningless and purposeless, and they will look for something to fulfill them." Kahn suggested that we may see more riots and irrational movements along with a turn to mysticism, cults, and drugs as a means for such fulfillment.
We have seen an upsurge in drug usage with certain drugs, notably marijuana, meth-amphetamine, cocaine, "angel dust" (phencyclidine, also called PCP), ecstasy, date-rape, crack, and a host of other drugs becoming increasingly accepted by larger numbers seeking escape from modern society and becoming a crisis of epidemic proportions in the U.S. according to police and hospital officials.
Accidents, suicides, homicides, all have been the end result of using illegal drugs. Yet multiple thousands continue to "find reality" through their use.
After drugs then what? What other forms of escapism would the supposedly affluent, leisurely utopian life of tomorrow bring with it assuming it comes about at all? Reading such reports of the "bad news" as well as the "good news," we may well have doubts about whether we want to be around in such an age.
Would We Really Want It?
We must begin looking at society in general. The same report adds that because of intensified social, ethnic and racial problems, the cities of the future will be "seething centers of periodically great turmoil and confusion."
"For the underdeveloped world, the 'plight of the average man' will have deteriorated. People will be more poorly fed and there will be fewer goods per person. Every attempt to improve the situation will be wiped out by the continued population growth. Hunger, starvation, and famine periodically and continuously will stalk major portions of the planet".
Then, almost incredibly, the report said probably "for the first time in history, every child everywhere will be at school, if they are not starving in a famine."
So goes the misleading and often conflicting foretelling of the future by science, industry, and technology. Not very happy predictions, are they? Other prognostications abound, even about our personal futures. Some included in that early report of 1976 are amusing now such as:
- Choosing the sex of children before they are conceived, 1980.
- Artificial plastic and electronic organs for humans, 1982.
- Artificial heart implantations; brain linked to computer, 1985.
- Chemical synthesis of inexpensive, nutritious food; cancer conquered, 1990.
- First human clone; brain transplants commonplace, 1995.
- Transplantation of almost all organs of the body, 2000.
- Alteration of the processes of aging, 2005.
- Biochemicals to aid the growth of new organs and limbs, 2007.
- Widespread use of artificial insemination to produce genetically superior offspring, 2010.
- Drugs to raise the level of intelligence, 2012.
- Fetuses grown in artificial wombs, 2015.
- Genetic engineering in humans by chemically modifying their DNA chains.
- Human brain linked with computer to enlarge man's intellect, 2020.
- Total mastery of human genetics and heredity, 2030.
- Suspended animation of life, 2040.
- Complete control of the aging process; man-made immortality, 2050.
The predictions are almost endless. Economists, sociologists, geneticists, psychiatrists, even zoologists and anthropologists are having a hand at predicting the varicolored and kaleidoscopic never-never land of tomorrow, glittering and glamorous for the few; filled with grisly specters of horror for the many.
What World Leaders Expect.
The two most widely held views are divergent ones, paradoxically pointing in opposite directions. Many world leaders now expect, though they probably do not dwell on the thought, that nuclear destruction eventually, perhaps soon, will erase human life from this earth.
Besides nuclear annihilation, there are several other means by which mankind could be destroyed from off the face of the earth: chemical warfare, biological warfare, overpopulation and resulting famine, disease epidemics, extreme weather conditions, worldwide volcanic eruptions and earthquakes, and environmental pollution, just to mention a few.
Consider these facts: Human life is sustained by air, food, and water. Today man is polluting his life-sustaining supply of these three necessities at a fast-accelerating rate. Air pollution, filling the air with gases, smoke, smog, fallout from nuclear test explosions, and fluorocarbons from aerosol spray cans, not only threatens man but renders plant life sick.
Many rivers and lakes worldwide have been so seriously polluted that the water supply in many places is reaching a crisis stage. Added to that, one of the ways that hazardous waste material is "gotten rid of" is deep well injection. Just contemplate what that is doing to our underground aquifers.
Man has depleted and ruined the very soil out of which our food must grow. Artificial fertilizers, poisonous sprays, and erosion caused by floods have robbed vegetables, grains, and fruits of life-sustaining minerals and vitamins. Adding to this is not to rotating crops and allowing the fields to rest every seven years as Scripture instructs. Food factories have further extracted these vital elements out of grains, rice, and sugar in the greed for profits. Add to these the worldwide revolution in the weather, droughts and floods, resulting in mass starvation now in some parts of the world, and widespread epidemics of disease as well. During the past half century in Africa, India and South America alone, weather and environmental damage has caused the loss of over one million square kilometers (over 247 million acres) of agricultural land. In addition, the rate of destruction is accelerating.
If all these fast-accelerating evils do not destroy humanity soon, the experts say the population explosion will.
The web page entitled "Total Midyear Population for the World: 1950-2050" presents the latest estimates and projections of world population from the U.S. Census Bureau. The world population increased from 3 billion in 1959 to 6 billion by 1999, a doubling that occurred over 40 years. The Census Bureau's latest projections imply that population growth will continue into the 21st century, although more slowly. The world population is projected to grow from 6 billion in 1999 to 9 billion by 2042, an increase of 50 percent that will require 43 years.
Even now, with our population of 6.6 billion, more than 850 million people today are gravely undernourished and unable to obtain sufficient food to meet even minimum energy needs. Approximately 200 million children under five years of age suffer from acute or chronic symptoms of malnutrition; during seasonal food shortages, and in times of famine and social unrest, this number increases. According to some estimates, malnutrition is an important factor among the nearly 13 million children under five who die every year from preventable diseases and infections such as measles, diarrhea, malaria and pneumonia or from combinations of these. As global population soars, the imbalance of human numbers and rapidly dwindling resources threatens to become even further aggravated. If the world cannot now adequately care for 6 billion, just how will it cope with 8 billion, or 12 billion?
Leading scientists look at this world picture and say they are frankly frightened. Even way back during the time of W.W.II, Sir Winston Churchill stated that "we need a strong hand from some where" was needed to save us. The scientists warn us that man's only hope lies in the admittedly impossible, that the nations form a super world government capable of unitedly acting on these problems on a global scale before it is too late. However, nations that are hostile to one another could never form such a government. Moreover, the humans then in authority would be no more able to cope with all nonmilitary evils that threaten the extinction of mankind than present leaders.
This widely held view of the future offers no hope and it will not happen!
What Will Happen?
So there you have the two opposite, divergent views of scientists, statesmen, educators, religious men, world leaders, one glowingly optimistic about the progress of society; the other utterly hopeless. However, both of these concepts are false.
Man wants desperately to save the society he has established upon this earth. Nevertheless, this society, this civilization cannot be saved! Man, himself is bringing this world to destruction. The Mighty One will soon step in and create a new, peaceful, and happy society, the Wonderful World of Tomorrow.
Painted by Mimmo.
Do you know why our loving CREATOR, inspired the men who penned the Hebrew Scriptures down through the centuries? His purpose was simply to proclaim the Good News of the Wonderful World of Tomorrow, and provide a guide for us to live by, so He can share that World with us, His children.
(Isaiah 52:7) (NKJV) How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, "Your SOVEREIGN reigns!"
Therefore in the end those who love the SOVEREIGN, obey Him,
and choose His Way will live their eternity with Him.
Chapter 2 - One Last "Obituary" Look at Today's World.
Before we look at what actually is going to come, the peaceful, happy, joyful Wonderful World of Tomorrow, let's take one last "obituary" look at this world that man has built upon the earth. Take one last fleeting look at the corpses of education, science, technology, commerce and industry, governments, the social order, and even religions.
Of course many see only the glitter, glamour, and tinsel of today's tinker-toy society and think it is good. They see the temporary pleasures and blind their eyes to the hard cold facts of reality. Others, more aware of the world they live in, seek escape to remote, unspoiled areas where they can start anew "away from it all" and in harmony with nature. However, there just is not really anywhere to go that mankind, under heylel's influence, has not polluted. Remember the man who before World War II started the thought that the safest most unspoiled place to be was Guadalcanal?
Education Is Decadent.
Take a realistic look at this world's civilization. We will look at modern education first because it is the mother, the alma mater, which has spawned the scientists, captains of industry and business, the politicians and rulers, the leaders in the modern social order, and the theologians.
Today's world is what its leaders have made it. In addition, the leaders are the product of modern education. Education is defined by the Encyclopedia Britannica as "a system by which adult leaders of a society inject their philosophies, ideas, customs and culture into the minds of the growing generation." Education is, and has been through the centuries, essentially pagan in origin and character. The pagan philosopher Plato founded our academic system.
The 19th and 20th centuries witnessed the absorption of German rationalism into the educational bloodstream, an approach that regards human reason as the chief source and test of knowledge. There has been a dangerous drift into materialism and collectivism. The true revealed knowledge of our SOVEREIGN in the Hebrew Scripture is ignored and rejected. The ancient belief of gnosticism, meaning we know, was succeeded by agnosticism, meaning we don't know (we are ignorant). This ignorance is glorified as knowledge.
Modern education trains students to earn a living in various professions, occupations, and vocations, but fails to teach them how to live. It commits the crime of developing the machine while failing to develop the man.
In modern education we find perpetuation of false values, the teaching of distorted history, warped psychology, perverted arts and sciences, all of which is worthless knowledge.
A leading expert on educational philosophy, Dr. Donald M. Dozer wrote this in and about contemporary university education:
"Ours is an age dominated by half-truths and for this situation many causes can be found not the least of which are attributable to the processes of higher education. American universities have succumbed to the cult of faddism, sensationalism, and even vulgarism. New courses in scatology, whether masquerading as sociology, anthropology, or literature, have been given classroom platforms and respectability. As students have become increasingly involved in curricular planning they have encouraged the idea that courses rich in content inhibit their creative impulses and represent an imposition upon them. This has led to the multiplication of colleges of creative studies which might better be called colleges of undisciplined studies where lectures are eschewed as 'bourgeois' and students educate themselves in 'rap sessions'."
A tree is known by its fruits. A mixed-up, unhappy and fearful world in chaos, divided against itself, filled with heartaches, frustrations, broken homes, juvenile delinquency, crime, insanity, racial hatreds, riots, violence, wars and death; devoid of honesty, truth and justice; now facing extinction by man-inflicted cosmocide, that is the fruit of modern education.
The first man, Adam, having the opportunity to make a choice between being limited to human reason in knowledge or yielding to the SOVEREIGN's Commandments and learn true unlimited knowledge, made the decision to use limited human intuition and reasoning.
Yes, today's educational intellectualism is ready to die. It will be replaced by the right and true educational system of the Wonderful World of Tomorrow.
Science and Technology.
Today's world looks with awe at modern science as the messiah trusted to deliver it from poverty, ignorance, disease, and unhappiness, to solve all its problems.
Science and technology, teamed with commerce and industry, promise the magic, push-button dream world of leisure, luxury, and license.
However, modern science has totally failed to reveal to the world the purpose of human life or explain its true meaning. This scientific body of knowledge remains ignorant of the true values. It does not know the way to peace. This scientific branch of knowledge has failed miserably to deliver the world from poverty, famine, disease, fears, worries, and unhappiness. It does not even know the causes of broken homes, crime, insanity, and immorality; much less how to rid the world of them.
A realistic look at the fruits of modern science leads only to disillusionment. Science and technology confine their attention to the realm of the material and the mechanical. How about the purpose and meaning of human life? The true values? Finding the way to peace, happiness, and joy? We find that these basics to human welfare are not even their concern. These essentials are outside their field and scope of intelligence.
Look again to their fruits. True enough, we do find the accelerating invention and production of intricate mechanical devices, laborsaving mechanisms that inspire admiration, spectacular entertainment, and amusement devices.
The down side is that we also observe that people have not been taught to put added hours, days, and weeks of leisure to beneficial uses. The fruit here is increasing idleness, aversion to work, covetousness, desire for more and more, and dissatisfaction with it when it is acquired. This turns out, in practical application, to be false values which only increase unhappiness.
We also find an increasing segment of adolescents, who, with money to spend and nothing but idleness on their hands, become frustrated staring a hopeless future in the face turning to immorality, drugs, violence, and, too often, suicide.
After all, the principal contribution of modern science and technology has been the production of constantly more terrifying weapons of mass destruction. We find push-button world warfare. Yes, today any one of nine or ten men could push a button and destroy whole continents probably culminating in the total extinction of all mankind.
Modern science stands exposed as a false messiah, the Frankenstein monster threatening to destroy the mankind that created it.
Commerce and Industry.
Turning to the realms of commerce and industry, surely, here, we find an exhibition of development that excites our enraptured admiration. Here we find an astonishing condition that would cause people who lived a century ago, could they suddenly come back to life, to gasp in amazed wonderment.
The miniature TVs, radios, and cell-phones that can take pictures, connect to the Internet, and show movies and world events. The ability to take pictures with your shirt pocket telephone and send them around the world almost instantaneously would blow the socks off any one who died only twenty-years ago.
I remember as a lad that my Dad told me of how his Dad and Uncle (who worked for the railroad) arguing whether trains would go 60 mph or not. Granddad argued that the wind at that speed would tear the cars apart. Now we have railroad trains, rocket cars, boats that travel over 200 mph, and at this writing the motorcycle record is 186 miles per hour. Won't they have a surprise when they are finally awakened from the dead?
In addition we have mammoth oil-tankers, jet and rocket planes, spacecraft hurtling astronauts around the earth in outer space in 90 minutes, and that sent men to the moon and back, unmanned spacecraft that take close-up photographs of the surfaces of Mars and Jupiter, the gadgets and modern electrical devices, the incredible modern computers, just to scratch the surface and name a very few.
Both commerce and industry are a world within a world, fast-moving, pulsating realm of high-geared activity. Surely all these magic productions cannot be bad? No, but most of them are being made to serve bad purposes as well as good ones.
And if we look further, we find these vibrant, high-pressure fields of activity based on competition and greed, appealing too often in marketing their products to vanity and wrong desires, utilizing dishonesty, misrepresentation, deception, unfair dealing. The motivating incentive is to give less while charging more.
"Is honesty the best policy?" A magazine survey some years back put this question to 103 business executives, all high in their fields. An overwhelming majority doubted whether a strictly honest policy would enable a man to rise to the top in the business world. Only two answered "Yes," and one of these said he knew he was being naive.
One business executive said, "People who don't get dirty don't make it."
"In thirty years," said another, "I've known of only three men who've reached executive positions cleanly, and I admit I'm not one of them."
"The higher the executive is in the management ladder," said a third, "the more likely he is to do some dirty work."
An appraisal of the field of modern business reveals selfish motivation, disregard for public good, underhand practices, dishonesty, dog-eat-dog competition. We emphatically do not find here the true values and the outgoing concern for others that would give happiness to the world.
The Field of Government.
The politicians in the field of government are said to be in 'public service.' They profess to be 'public servants.' They are installed in offices of authority and power. They execute the laws that regulate and govern the people. Theirs is the power to regulate society, guide it, and make it what it is. They are the leaders of the people.
When we turn the searchlight on government in today's modern world, we meet once again with sad and discouraging disillusionment. Today as in ancient times, too many of those who seek offices of power over the people of cities, states, districts, or nations, promise great benefits, pose as public benefactors while their inner motives are ambitions for personal power and wealth.
The modern world has produced four more-or-less new forms of government. Each promises peace, happiness, and prosperity for its people. They are: 1) French and United States republics. 2) Swedish- and British-type limited monarchy. 3) Atheistic communism. 4) Religious monarchies.
All four are based on a system of industry and on diffusion of education. All four are predicated on the theory that every individual has the right to share in the benefits of science, industry, and the modern life.
But actually too often what we find is selfish, greedy men of excessive vanity, ambitious in their lust for rule, scheming to get their hands on the throttle of power for personal aggrandizement and monetary gain. We find secret deals, graft, immorality, deception, and dishonesty running rampant in high places.
Governments promise peace, but bring wars. They promise benefits for the people and then extract from the people the cost of the benefits plus excessive costs of government. Government promises are empty. The people are the pawns who fork over the money in order to get a part of it back. We fail to find in human government any knowledge of life's purpose or dissemination of the true values.
The Social Order.
What about civilization? Let someone suggest a possible stupendous worldwide calamity that might destroy civilization. People would exclaim, horrified, "What? Destroy civilization?" as if that would mean the destruction and ending of everything worthwhile, everything people have to live for.
People think of civilization as the sum-total of everything good that mankind has struggled from the dawn of history to establish. People think of civilization as the far-advanced, intelligent, well-ordered human society that is good to the point of perfection, the acme of human progress. Perhaps you have accepted this popular assumption.
Think about this, is this world's civilization really good?
If the facets of human life and organization so far examined have brought disillusionment, surely we would think the social order ought to be good, evidencing great human progress, a proud monument to human advancement. So now we look behind the scenes. Now we turn the searchlight of truth on the social order of civilization.
We look first at the most populous nations where far more than half the world's population lives, China, the countries of Southeast Asia and Indonesia, India, the Arab countries of the Middle East, and most of Africa as well as much of South America. And what do we see here? illiteracy, ignorance, retrogression, famine, disease, people living in unbelievable poverty, filth, squalor, and stench beyond description. Victims of famine and widespread epidemics of disease, in many places half of all babies die during their first year of life. Wretched beings, ill-housed, ill-fed, and ill-clothed.
Is that part, the biggest part, of this world's humanity an example of progress, and a culture worth preserving?
Now we will focus the floodlight of truth on the affluent "have" nations. Do we find the social order of the Western world based on understanding of life's purpose and true meaning, pursuing the true values that produce universal happiness?
Regretfully, quite the contrary. In purely social functions and contacts, especially among the elite of high society, we find an unhappy competition in snobbery and vanity with class distinctions, racial discrimination, religious bigotry, and selfish motives.
Look at amusements and recreations. The prevailing format in motion pictures and television is illicit sex, illicit drugs, violence, and murder. Young twelve to fifteen-year-olds hear the beat, see the wiggle, and give themselves over in a virtually possessed frenzy to rock music. Children start going steady about age twelve or thirteen, and a theologian-labeled new morality becomes "understanding" about premarital sex, adultery, and perversion.
Juveniles stare in the face a hopeless future, descend into delinquency, rebellion against society, and organizing into gangs.
One in five people today is mentally sick. Crime and violence are on the upsurge. Divorce stalks the Western world (one for every two marriages) leaving broken homes and frustrations in its wake. Even those who "mount the ladder of success" , the millionaires and billionaires, relentlessly seek more and more; and are never satisfied with what they acquire when they have it.
This world's civilization is mentally, morally and spiritually sick. This society supplies no purpose for life, knows nothing of the true values, and has no concept of the right meaning of the word "success."
This world's civilization has been making progress in reverse. It has become decadent, putrid, rotten, filthy, and is now bringing about its own destruction.
Nevertheless, the future is not hopeless. This present evil world is to be replaced, in our time, by the happy, joyous, peaceful Wonderful World of Tomorrow. That is an event we should not want to miss!
What Has Religion Contributed?
Well, surely we should expect to find finally in religion the knowledge of life's purpose, the true values, and the right ways that should make this world a better world, a happy world, a peaceful world.
Here at last we must surely find a stabilizing and uplifting influence for society.
Yet, shocking, though it is, incredible, if we put the searchlight of the truth on the facts and view them realistically with an open mind, we find here the most sickening disillusionment of all.
The churches of the Western world are divided and in confusion. They have not converted, saved, and reformed the whole world as they profess to have been commissioned to do. If that be their mission, they have failed miserably.
Look at the religions of the world, Buddhism, Shintoism, Taoism, Confucianism, Islamism, Hinduism, "Christianity" and the others. In most countries where these religions are embraced, we find illiteracy, poverty, degeneration, misery, suffering, despair, and general unhappiness. None of them has produced a happy world. They have spawned communal wars, hatreds, and violence.
So we have appraised the major facets of modern civilization, this world's education, its science and technology, its commerce and industry, its systems of government, its social order, and its religions, the civilization man has developed, swayed by Satan. Moreover, we have found them all wrong, all evil, all decadent. They are ready to die. The 6,000 years of man is ending. But the ETERNAL SOVEREIGN will soon usher in the utopian world of peace and happiness!
In addition, where have these major branches of civilization brought us? Just what is the status of 21st century "progress"? What is the actual state of the world today?
When we take a hard, cold, realistic view of conditions and trends, they do point inevitably to a fast-approaching world crisis of combined nuclear war, starvation, uncontrollable disease epidemics, crime and violence, and the extinction of human life on this planet.
Man has no solution. The farther he goes, the more destructive are his efforts. Yet, absolute utopia is soon to grip this earth in our time, and we shall see world peace. We shall see sickness banished; vigorous health restored; ignorance replaced with universal right education; poverty replaced with universal prosperity; weeping and wailing turned into happiness and joy!
Incredible? Why should it be? Why? Yes, why should we have a world where more than half of the world's people is living in abject ignorance and poverty, wracked with disease and pain, living in filth, squalor, and wretchedness? Why, even in our prosperous Western nations should our lands be filled with sickness and pain; plagued by crime, violence, riots; broken and unhappy homes, juvenile delinquents of delinquent parents, frustrations with no hope for the future?
Why? Does it make sense? Do we not realize that there is a cause for every effect? Why are people blind to the cause of all this degeneration?
The Two Alternatives.
Let's face it. At the present, there are two alternatives. Either there does exist a living ETERNAL CREATOR, a SOVEREIGN of Supreme mind and total power who very soon will step in and intervene in the affairs of this world and save humanity from itself, or else the threatened extinction pictured above must inevitably soon occur.
There is no other alternative. One may blind his eyes to existing facts, and trends, and say, "Now, come on! I cannot see that this world is any worse than it ever was, nothing is going to happen. If we just ignore the conditions and don't worry, perhaps they'll just go away." Nevertheless, these conditions and trends will not just go away, not unless they are caused to go away.
The Scriptures, the inspired revelation of the Supreme SOVEREIGN of mankind, have foretold today's world conditions and trends, and give us the advance news of coming peace on earth, of universal prosperity, of happiness and joy, of veritable utopia! This is the Good News of the Wonderful World of Tomorrow. Believe it or not, it is absolutely sure. It is sure, because it does not depend on men, or anything men might do. The ETERNAL is going to do it in spite of rebellious man. Man will fail. Man always has failed. The ETERNAL never fails!
Chapter 3 - The Cause of All World Troubles.
You look at today's newspapers, and what do you see? Terrorism, crime, heartbreak, and war news. Crime is on the increase. Murder is commonplace. We read about terrible accidents every single day. Bombings and terrorism break out in many nations with many being killed. We are bombarded with terror, and crime; it seems that they want us to be terrorized. However, this is prophesied to happen to us in the latter days.
(Leviticus 26:15-16) (NKJV) 15and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My Covenant, 16I also will do this to you: I will even appoint terror over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
However, our SOVEREIGN gives us a way out and that is by obeying HIM.
(Isaiah 54:14) (NKJV) In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and [far] from terror, for it shall not come near you.
Now let's look into the near future at the newspaper headlines of the SOVEREIGN's World of Tomorrow that is going to come in our time. Now know that it will not become utopia all at once. (That will be explained later.)
Take a Glimpse into Tomorrow.
When the Mashiach (Messiah) is raised from the dead to take his rightful place on earth as King of kings in all his power and splendor, the Gentile nations actually will resist him at first. Know that he is coming to rule under the SOVEREIGN's Almighty power! His purpose at that time will be to gather the remnant of the thirteen tribes of Israel from the nations where they had been taken captive and bring them to the wilderness outside the Valley of Jezreel. That is his job and that is what he is going to accomplish.
When the righteous remnant gets to the Land of Israel, these might be the headlines you will read in Israel's and the world's newspapers of the future:
"Crime Rate Drops to Zero." "No Wars During This Year. Former Soldiers Being Rapidly Assimilated into Food Production and New Industries." "Disease Epidemics Disappear. Millions Have Been Supernaturally Healed of Sickness and Disease. All Vaccines and 'Shots' Banned. Causes of Cancer, Heart Attacks, and other Fatal Diseases Revealed. Authorities Predict All Such Diseases to Disappear, by Avoiding Causes, Within Coming Year."
"Thousands of Hospital Properties Up for Sale. Sensational Decline in Sickness and Disease Releases Increasing Hundreds of Thousands of Doctors, Nurses, Attendants and Staff Personnel for Happier and More Useful Occupations. Knowledge of Causes Reduces Sickness and Disease. Thousands of Afflicted Now Being Healed."
"Rapid Increase in Food Production. All Records Broken for Increased Food Production. Agricultural Authorities Reveal Abolition of Artificial and Synthetic Fertilizers, and Return to Nature's Laws of Soil Enrichment Resulting Not Only in Bumper Crops, but Vastly Improved Quality and Flavor."
Well, how are those, for starters? We repeat: there's a cause for every effect. If crime is to be greatly reduced then wiped out, there will be a reason. People may have many guesses, opinions, theories about what causes crime, but the answer is, human nature.
What is the cause of wars? The answer is, human nature. Why do people steal, murder, commit adultery or fornication, covet what is not theirs? Human nature!
We shall never have utopia on earth until human nature is changed. But, you may say, "Man can not change human nature." Oh, but The CREATOR can! And that is precisely what He is going to do.
What Is Human Nature?
We customarily think that human nature is something with which humans are born. But wait a moment. Stop and think. If there is a CREATOR SOVEREIGN did He design and create within humanity the thing we call human nature? Alternatively, if one accepts the theory of evolution, did man inherit it from a lower species of vertebrates from which he is supposed to have evolved? There are both tame and wild animals. Now consider for example, a cow, a dog, or an ape. They have instincts not reasoning powers as man does. But not human nature! Just what is human nature?
I state that human nature is vanity, lust, and greed toward self, and is jealousy, envy, hostility, and resentment of authority against others. Scripture defines it thus:
(Jeremiah 17:9) (KJV) The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
You cannot ascribe that attitude or nature to the dumb animals. Does it make sense to suppose a Father of love, mercy and great outgoing concern for His human family, deliberately created us to be naturally hostile toward our Maker, not subject to His law, deceitful and desperately wicked?
Satan Was Not Created Evil.
Look at the Scriptural account of human creation. Before the serpent (Satan) got to Adam, the CREATOR brought to Adam "every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air" (Genesis 2:19) asking Adam to give them names. Did Adam rebel? Did he say, "Go do it yourself?" Did Adam refuse to obey his Father's command? The answer: "And Adam gave names to all cattle, to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field". (Genesis 2:20) No, Adam immediately did as the CREATOR instructed.
Now consider that from Genesis 3 all through Scripture, much is said repeatedly about Satan. Isaiah 14 identifies Lucifer as the former angel that covered. And Ezekiel 28 affirms that she was created as a super being perfect in all her ways until by her own free choice iniquity was found in her.
The former righteous angel Lucifer turned to rebellion against her CREATOR. She turned to deceit, hostility, becoming cunning, subtle, and desperately wicked. She came to be filled with vanity, lust, and greed. She turned from the CREATOR's Way of love, which is out-flowing concern and desire to help and share and the way of giving, to the way of hateful manipulation and getting.
Only Two Basic Philosophies.
There are only two ways or attitudes of life broadly speaking: give, the way of love; and get, the way of vanity, selfishness, hostility, and resentment.
The first man Adam, after Satan got to him through his wife, had turned to the way of get, greed, and envy. The "get" way of life is not inherited, but it is acquired.
We did not inherit the "get" way of life from Adam. Adam was not created with it, he acquired it from Satan. In addition, acquired characteristics are not passed on by heredity. Those who are called by the CREATOR and come to real repentance and obedience become partakers of His Way. Likewise, the children of one who has acquired righteousness will not receive the SOVEREIGN's nature by heredity.
Adam and Eve, by making the wrong decision, acquired the "get attitude" from Satan. All their children, the entire human family, have acquired it after birth from Satan.
How the Spirit in Man Works.
When the CREATOR put it into the mind of King Cyrus of Persia to issue a proclamation to send a contingent of people of the House of Judah back to Jerusalem to build the second Temple, He "stirred up the spirit of Cyrus King of Persia" to do this (Ezra 1:1).
Every human has from conception, not "human nature", but a spirit in man (in the form of essence, not a "soul" or ghost), which imparts the power of intellect to the human brain. The spirit in man is injected into the new human being formed at conception by the union of the male sperm and the female egg. It resides in the frontal lobe of the human brain and gives the human brain its intellect.
This spirit in man cannot see. The physical brain sees through the eyes. Knowledge enters the brain through the senses of hearing, tasting, smelling, and feeling. We know that by itself the brain cannot see, hear, smell, taste, or feel spirit. It is confined to physical, material knowledge.
Yet the knowledge that enters the physical brain through these five senses is automatically programmed and recorded in memory into this spirit in man. This spirit in man, therefore, acts as a computer and it gives instant recall of knowledge stored in it to the brain. The brain uses this instant recall in the process of thinking, reasoning, and decision-making by its "intellect" which is provided by the spirit in man.
The spirit in man does not think, it empowers the physical brain to think. This spirit in man does not supply human life. The human life is supplied by the physical breath of air, and by physical blood as directed by the "empowered" conscious and subconscious layers of the human brain.
When our SOVEREIGN calls someone, He slightly tunes the spirit in man to His wavelength. If the person responds in a positive manner then the ETERNAL tunes the spirit in man more to His wavelength. If the person continues to respond positively the ETERNAL continues to tune the spirit in man until the person's stony heart is replaced with a new spirit and a new heart (Ezekiel 36:25-27).
The 'spirit in man' of ancient King Cyrus was utilized by the CREATOR as a mechanism through which to transmit the thought into Cyrus' mind to issue the decree to free the people. Likewise, Satan transmits through the air, broadcasts attitudes, impulses, desires of vanity, lust and greed, jealousy and envy, competition, and rebellion against authority.
You Are on Satan's Wavelength.
Satan is a spirit being so how does she then work in humans?
The spirit in man of each human is automatically tuned in on Satan's wavelength. Satan has no power of control and she cannot force any human mind to submit to the attitude she broadcasts and attempts to instill. Every human is a free moral agent responsible for his/her own attitudes, decisions, and actions. Satan does not broadcast in words, merely in attitudes. If the human mind is willing, it will accept and yield to Satan's attitudes, attitudes that we have mistakenly called "human nature."
The human mind is not born with Satan's hostile, self-centered attitudes. Neither is a human born with the SOVEREIGN's Nature. Yet, as soon as an infant or little child begins to exercise his brain in the thinking process, Satan's broadcasts of the self-centered attitude begin reaching his brain through his spirit in man.
Since the normal child's mind begins receiving these impulses to accept Satan's attitudes very early in childhood, unless counteracted by parental teaching and influence, he will automatically begin accepting these carnal attitudes. They become habitual, by habit they are acquired as a nature. Nevertheless, a person can reject the natural human tendencies and become obedient unto the CREATOR. Each individual can choose life and not be subjected to Satan's evil nature. Unlike religious thinking, obedience is a choice not a feeling. Religious people are swayed by their emotions. Those who love the CREATOR choose to obey His Word His Way!
The SOVEREIGN Will Change Human Nature.
It is interesting that the CREATOR wants to change our nature. He says that He will give us a new spirit. When our SOVEREIGN calls someone, He slightly tunes the spirit in man to His wavelength. As long as the person responds in a positive manner, the ETERNAL continues to tune the person's spirit in man into His wavelength. This continues until the person's stony heart is replaced with a new spirit and a new heart.
(Ezekiel 11:19-20) (NKJV) 19Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them. And take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, 20that they may walk in My Statutes and keep My Judgments and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their SOVEREIGN.
This will take place in the Wonderful World of Tomorrow on a much larger scale than today as the ETERNAL is only calling those to be shepherds in the WWT.
How Utopia Will Come.
World famous scientists now say frankly that the only hope for survival on earth is a supreme world-ruling government that controls all military power. Yet, they also admit that is impossible for man to accomplish. However, we have seen the results of man ruling man so how will a utopian world be established?
Now let us be very specific on how tomorrow's utopia is to be ushered in. Remember that this wonderful world-state will not be achieved instantaneously. Every major step of these soon-coming events is laid bare before our eyes in prophecy. We know from Scripture that the SOVEREIGN is coming back to earth.
(Zechariah 14:4) (NKJV) And in that day His [the ETERNAL's] feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.
Think of it. The glorified SOVEREIGN, coming in all splendor with the supernatural power to save the remnant of Israel and set up the Davidic Kingdom on earth. First, the ETERNAL will raise the Mashiach and the Prophet from the grave. Then the SOVEREIGN will send them with His mighty power to save the remnant of Israel which will then be in captivity.
Then eventually during the 1000 years the Mashiach and the Prophet will usher in peace, abundant well being, happiness, and joy for all those who love and obey the CREATOR. However, a question is, "Will the Mashiach be welcomed by the nations"?
Will the Mashiach be Welcome?
A leading American news weekly gave the following surprising appraisal of man's only hope: The article said once optimistic hope of Americans, the article said, for a well-ordered and stable world, is fading. Expenditures close to a trillion dollars have failed to provide stability. Rather conditions have worsened. This appraisal indicated that among officials, the prevailing view is gaining acceptance that tensions and world problems are becoming too deep-seated to be solved "except by a strong hand from someplace" as Winston Churchill once opined.
"A strong hand from someplace." The Almighty SOVEREIGN is going to send a very strong hand from "someplace" to save humanity! So do you think that humanity will shout with joy, and welcome the Mashiach in frenzied ecstasy and enthusiasm?
No they will not! Most will not even know who the Mashiach is. They will believe because the false ministers of Satan have deceived them, that He is the anti-Christ. The nations will be angry at His coming and the military forces will actually attempt to fight Him to destroy Him.
The nations will be engaged and will gather their military to Jerusalem in the Valley of Jehoshaphat (Joel 3:2 and Joel 3:12) to fight in the climatic battle of the coming World War III (Zechariah 14:1-2). The ETERNAL Himself will fight against nations that come up against His people. The Valley of Jehoshaphat is between the Temple Mount, Mount Moriah (2 Chronicles 3:1) and the Mount of Olives where the Mighty One of Israel is.
In supernatural power our SOVEREIGN will "fight against those nations" that fight against Him (Zechariah 14:3). He will totally defeat those nations. But how will He defeat His enemies?
How Nations Will Submit.
When the all Powerful SOVEREIGN first returns to earth, the nations will be angry. The military forces gathered at Jerusalem will try to fight Him. I said, "try." However, the ETERNAL has armies that are far more powerful. Remember the Mashiach? King David will be raised to rule the Kingdom but the ETERNAL will fight for His people Israel and establish the Kingdom.
How will the ETERNAL overcome them? We find that answer in Zechariah.
(Zechariah 14:12) (RSV) And this shall be the plague with which the ETERNAL will smite all the people that wage war against Jerusalem: their flesh shall rot while they are still on their feet, their eyes shall rot in their sockets, and their tongues shall rot in their mouths.
This rotting of their flesh off their bones will happen almost instantaneously, while they are still on their feet. What a sovereign retribution against armies that will fight against THE SOVEREIGN and His people. What a demonstration of His Majestic Power! Rebellion against the SOVEREIGN's Law and Rule must speedily be put down.
Can you realize that every unhappiness; every evil that has come to humanity has been the result of transgressing the SOVEREIGN's Law?
If no one ever had any other "g-d" before the true SOVEREIGN; if all children were reared to honor, respect, and obey their parents, and all parents reared their children in the ETERNAL's Way; if no one ever allowed the spirit of murder to enter his heart; if there were no wars, no killing of humans by humans; if all marriages were kept happy and there were no transgressions of chastity before or after marriage; if all had so much concern for the good and welfare of others that no one would steal, we could throw away all locks, keys, and safes; if everyone told the truth, everyone's word were good, everyone were honest; if no one ever coveted what was not rightfully his, but had so much outgoing concern for the welfare of others that he really believed it is more blessed to give than to receive, what a happy world we would have!
In such a world, with all loving and worshipping the ETERNAL with all their minds, hearts, and strength, with all having concern for the welfare of all others equal to concern for self, there would be no divorce, no broken homes or families, no abused children, no juvenile delinquency, no crime, no jails or prisons, no police except for peaceful direction and supervision as a public service for all, no wars, no military establishments.
In addition, the ETERNAL has set in motion physical laws that operate in our bodies and minds, as well as the spiritual Law. There would be no sickness, ill health, pain, or suffering. There would be, on the contrary, vigorous, vibrant good health, filled with dynamic interest in life, enthusiastic interest in constructive activities bringing happiness and joy. There would be cleanliness, vigorous activity, real progress, and no slums; no degenerate backward races or areas on earth.
When Will Satan Be Removed?
The day of man, swayed, deceived, and misled by Satan for 6,000 years, will soon be at an end like most believe. Satan will still be around during the Time of Jacob's Trouble and even the 1000 years. Only at the end of the 1000 years will all evil including Satan and its fallen angels be removed from the earth. Then there will be a new heaven and a new earth. Please see the essay: "When a Man Dies Shall He Live Again?".
Then Satan will not be able to broadcast through the air into the spirit of man. No longer shall she be able to inject into unsuspecting humans her satanic nature, which we have been misled into calling "human nature." That will be a wonderful day, the Wonderful World of Tomorrow.
Human Nature will Not Disappear at Once.
This earth began with mankind in a utopian Garden of Eden. It has taken mankind about 6,000 years to turn the earth and its populations into the condition it is in now. There is nothing that humans have not polluted. No magic wand got us here and no magic will get us out. As we worked to get here, we will have to work to get out. The only possible exception would be the pollutants and radiation that humans cannot remove and for these, it will take the Living Waters that flow from the Throne of the SOVEREIGN to clean them up. For example, it will take special crews seven months just to bury the remains of the dead after W.W.III (Ezekiel 39:14).
Just because the ETERNAL, His prince David, and His Prophet Elijah will be ruling the earth does not mean that the acquired satanic attitude will disappear from human minds immediately. Multiplied millions shall have acquired it and will have to work to overcome it. Even though there will be David and the Prophet broadcasting the ETERNAL's Law and Way, Satan will continue to broadcast her evil attitudes. What has been acquired by habit will not be automatically removed. There will be tens of thousands of people who will refuse to follow the ETERNAL's Way although they will be able to see for themselves His power and His majesty.
The ETERNAL has made us humans free moral agents with control over our own minds. We must choose and refuse to be blinded by Satan's pull of evil by deception.
Even during the 1000 years, there will be earth's mortal humans who will still be deceived. The beautiful thing is that the righteous will speak saying "this is the way, walk ye in it." At that time, those who desire to be righteous will know right from wrong and it will be their own choice who they will follow. Then the Prophet, the Mashiach, and the immortal saints ruling under the ETERNAL will begin removing the scales that have blinded human minds.
That is why I say complete utopia cannot be ushered in all at once. Multiple millions will still hold to the attitude of rebellion, of vanity, lust, and greed. But David and Elijah's advent shall begin the process of re-education, of opening deceived minds, of undeceiving minds, and bringing them to a voluntary repentance.
From the time of the Mashiach's supernatural take over, the ETERNAL's Law and the Word of the ETERNAL, shall go forth from Zion spreading over the whole earth (Isaiah 2:3). David and Elijah will begin calling all mortals on earth to repentance and spiritual salvation! The ETERNAL's Spirit shall flow out from Jerusalem (Zechariah 14:8).
What splendor! A new day shall have dawned. Peace shall soon come to those who choose righteousness. Righteous men shall turn from the way of "get" to the way of "give", the SOVEREIGN's Way of love. A new civilization shall now grow and grip the earth!
Chapter 4 - The New World Government.
Now notice just how the SOVEREIGN's World Government will function. It will not be a government of man's choosing such as democracy, republican, socialism, communism, fascism, human monarchy, oligarchy, or plutocracy.
There will be no election campaigns. No campaign fund-raising dinners. No secret sessions in smoked-filled rooms behind closed doors. No dirty political campaigns where each candidate attempts to put himself forward in the most favorable light, defaming, denouncing, or discrediting his opponents. No time or resources will be wasted in mudslinging campaigns in the lust for power.
Man has proven his utter incapability of ruling himself. So, the people will no longer rule; they will no longer have votes. It will not be a government of the people by the people or for the people. However, it will be a Government of the SOVEREIGN by the SOVEREIGN and yet for the people. Our Father, the Ancient of Days will be the Ruler and He is concerned for His children. The ETERNAL will appoint the King Himself and it will be His Mashiach (Messiah).
(Isaiah 11:10) (TLB) In that day, He who created the royal dynasty of David will be a banner of salvation to all the world. The nations will rally to him, for the land where he lives will be a glorious place.
Backing up a few verses we find a description of the Mashiach, his ability and character. Isaiah gives a clear picture of the Mashiach who is a Branch that shall grow out of the Root of Jesse (Isaiah 11:10). Notice:
(Isaiah 11:2-5) (TLB) 2And the Spirit of the ETERNAL shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, and might; the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the ETERNAL. 3His delight will be obedience to the ETERNAL. He will not judge by appearance, false evidence, or hearsay, 4but will defend the poor and the exploited. He will rule against the wicked who oppress them. 5For he will be clothed with fairness and with truth.
Remember that the ETERNAL is the Supreme One Who is love, who gives and who rules with outgoing concern for His people. The highest wellbeing of the people will be the standard of His Rule. The most able, the most righteous, the most faithful, and those best fitted for office will be placed in all offices of responsibility and power. Most were chosen long ago as was the Mashiach (quoted from The Living Bible because of its ease of readability).
(Psalms 2:6-9) (TLB) 6For the ETERNAL declares, "This is the King of My choice, and I have enthroned him in Jerusalem, My [pure] city". 7His chosen one replies, "I will reveal the everlasting purposes of the SOVEREIGN, for the ETERNAL has said to me, 'You are my Son. This is your Coronation Day. Today I am giving you your glory. 8Only ask and I will give you all the nations of the world. 9Rule them with an iron rod; smash them like clay pots!
The ETERNAL continues to speak, but addresses the world.
(Psalms 2:10-12) (TLB) 10O kings and rulers of the earth, listen while there is time. 11Serve the ETERNAL with reverent fear; rejoice with trembling. 12Fall down before his son and kiss his feet before his anger is roused and you perish. I am warning you, his wrath will soon begin. But oh, the joys of those who put their trust in him!
(Psalms 89:20-27) (KJV) 20I [the ETERNAL] have found David my servant; with my holy oil [spirit] have I anointed him: 21With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him. 22The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness [Satan] afflict him. 23And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. 24But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name [the ETERNAL's] shall his horn be exalted. 25I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers. 26He [David] shall cry unto me [the ETERNAL], Thou art my father, my SOVEREIGN, and the rock of my salvation. 27Also I [the ETERNAL] WILL make him [David] my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
The SOVEREIGN said it and that settles it. King David is the Mashiach. Believe it or not!
What Is the New Covenant?
Those who are gathered from among the nations by the Mashiach will be returned to the Promised Land. They will receive a "new spirit" along with those who are awakened in the First Awakening. They will be blessed and will have plenty. By the way, the ETERNAL will have the Anointed One (the Mashiach) gather the remnant from the nations where they are captives and bring them to the wilderness outside the Valley of Jezreel. The two sticks (representing the House of Israel and the House of Judah) will be rejoined into one stick or in actuality one Kingdom under our SOVEREIGN.
There the unrighteous goats will be separated from the righteous sheep. Those who are righteous will then enter the Valley; they will be or become spirit beings. Whether they die and are awakened or whether they are just changed immediately into spirit is not stated. In either case, those who walk after detestable things along with their abominations will be left in the wilderness.
After the righteous enter the Valley of Jezreel in the Land of Promise, they will become a part of the New Covenant. The righteous will be sprinkled with clean water and cleansed from all of their filthiness that came from their idols. There the ETERNAL will cleanse them. The stony heart will be taken out of their flesh and they will be given a new heart and a new spirit. What a wonderful day that will be. The ETERNAL will be their SOVEREIGN and the righteous will be His people. They shall walk in the ETERNAL's Ordinances and keep them. See: (Ezekiel 11:14-21 and Ezekiel 36:19-35)
After those days, after the Time of Jacob's Trouble, and after the ETERNAL has established His Reign on earth, what we shall see here is happiness, peace, abundance, and justice for those in the New Covenant.
(Jeremiah 31:31-33) (KJV) 31Behold, the days are coming, says the ETERNAL, when I will make a New Covenant with the House of Israel and with the House of Judah; 32not according to the Covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My Covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them [House of Israel and the House of Judah], says the ETERNAL. 33But this is the Covenant that I will make with the House of Jacob after those days, says the ETERNAL: I will put My Law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their SOVEREIGN, and they shall be My people.
Many people believe that they will go to a place called "heaven." But that is exactly opposite of the truth. The Father will come to earth to dwell with His people so we will not go dwell with Him in the sky. When the ETERNAL is here and the Davidic Kingdom is set up on earth even the desert will bloom as a beautiful meadow (Isaiah 35:1). Moreover, there will be peace, joy, and happiness in unbounded abundance. Incidentally, there is not going to be an-ever-burning hell fire either. That is the demitted dreams of Dante in the 1300 century based on the writings of ancient pagan philosophers. You will not find that teaching in Scripture. Please see the essay: "When A Man Dies Shall He Live Again?"
There will come a time when the ETERNAL will give the righteous a New Covenant and write His Laws in their minds and hearts and they will only want to keep His Way and His Covenants. Then they will have an abundance of overflowing love springing out of their hearts for their SOVEREIGN.
The whole world under the Davidic Kingdom will be as the Garden of Eden as long as the nations obey the CREATOR, and we the SOVEREIGN's children will live full abundant lives that we were created to live and will learn of war no more (Isaiah 2:4 and Micah 4:3). The New Covenant will occur after the Time of Jacob's Trouble when both houses, the House of Israel and of the House of Judah, will be united as one house, the House of Jacob. Only then, each person will experience peace, happiness, and abundance, joyful well being! The SOVEREIGN will walk and live among His people. That will be a Great Day (Zechariah 2:8, Zechariah 2:10, Zechariah 2:12).
(Ezekiel 37:26-27) (Darby) 26And I will make a Covenant of peace with them: it shall be an everlasting Covenant with them; and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in the midst of them for ever. 27And My Tabernacle shall be over them; and I will be their SOVEREIGN, and they shall be My people.
Therefore, the New Covenant that the ETERNAL will give His people will be a Covenant of Peace. It will be an Everlasting Covenant, one that can never be changed or taken away. The righteous people who will inherit the New Covenant are the ones who chose to walk in the CREATOR's Way in spite of circumstances here on this earth. They had a heart and willingness to pass their tests just like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Job, Moses, Daniel, King David, Samuel, and others passed theirs.
There will then be two kinds of beings on earth, humans and spirit beings, until the end of the Thousand Years. Then there will only be spirit beings.
Two Witnesses for the SOVEREIGN.
1) Crime and organized rebellion will be put down by force. The Mashiach (David) will rule with the rod of his mouth and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked (Isaiah 11:4).
2) At the same time the Prophet (Elijah) will have set his hand to reeducate the people and to turn their hearts back to the CREATOR SOVEREIGN.
The social and religious customs of this world will be changed by the SOVEREIGN's mandate to observe the activities and Festivals according to Scripture. Originally, the CREATOR gave seven annual Festivals and the Special Night of Protection He commanded to be observed. They contained great and important meaning. They pictured the SOVEREIGN's Master Plan for working out His purpose for humanity. They were established forever.
They were and still are the Mighty One's Way, customs for His people. Nevertheless, the people rejected His Way and customs and turned instead to the ways and customs of pagan religions. People did what seemed right to themselves not what the Scriptures actually states is right. These same wrong ways seem right to most people today. We realize they seem right, not wrong, to most who will be reading these words because we have been there also. Now we realize that.
(Proverbs 14:12) (KJV) There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
(Proverbs 16:25) (KJV) There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
This statement is important enough to be repeated. The SOVEREIGN said through Moses:
(Deuteronomy 12:8) (NKJV) You shall not at all do as we are doing here today, every man doing whatever is right in his own eyes.
(Deuteronomy 12:30-31) (NKJV) 30take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their 'gods', saying, How did these nations serve their 'gods'? I also will do likewise. 31You shall not worship the ETERNAL your SOVEREIGN in that way; for every abomination to the ETERNAL which He hates they have done to their 'gods'; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their 'gods'.
Today the professing "Christian world" rejects the ETERNAL's Special Days set apart only to Him but which the deceived "Christian religion" hates. They observe instead the pagan days, "Christmas, New Year's, Easter," and others, "which the SOVEREIGN hates." Many know and confess that these are pagan holidays, but they argue, "We don't observe these in worshipping the pagan g-ds; we use their customs in worshipping 'G-d' and besides the children enjoy them."
That is the way that "seems right" to people. They may not mean any wrong. They are deceived. A deceived man does not know he is wrong. He thinks he is right. He may be as sincere as those who have found the ETERNAL's Way and obey it. Yet, the SOVEREIGN says He will not accept that kind of observance or worship. It is an abomination to Him, "which He hates."
It is those who have been deceived whose eyes the Priest will open to the CREATOR's Truth when he returns to teach all nations of mortals still left alive.
All Will Keep the Festivals.
People will no longer be blinded and deceived in regard to the ETERNAL's Commandments and Way. To see that in Scripture:
(Zechariah 14:16) (ESV) Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the SOVEREIGN of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths.
The Feast of Booths that the above verse mentions is one of the seven annual Festivals the CREATOR commanded His people to observe. Sadly, ancient Israel rebelled. They rejected the SOVEREIGN's Festivals and turned to pagan holidays of worshiping the "Queen of Heaven."
The reason that Judah was taken into captivity in the first place is because they were not keeping the festivals and following the CREATOR's Way. The Jews that came back from Babylon still were not keeping the correct Festivals and they still, today, are not keeping the correct ones.
When Ezra and Nehemiah brought the Jewish people back to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem they observed the Festivals for a while. However, it did not take long until the Jews went back to their heathen Babylonian practices and forgot the SOVEREIGN's Way. By the way, Jews as well as "Christians" still observe the heathen Babylonian practices today. Both celebrate their own holidays going by their calendars instead of the Special Festival Days appointed by the ETERNAL for them to observe.
In the days before and after the fall of Jerusalem, Saul (known in the NT as Paul) broke off from the Jewish religion and basically invented Christianity Paul, thought to be Simon Magus the Pontus Maximus of Mithraism in Samaria, formed 'Christianity' which he claimed was based upon the Jewish Messiah.
In 325 CE (fourth century AD), Constantine prayed to the sun g-d, whom he worshiped, for instructions on how to unite the Roman Empire. The answer he received was "Under the sign of the cross you will conquer." Then Constantine proclaimed that the religion of the Roman Empire was "Christianity" and he killed anybody that would not convert calling them Judaizers.
"Christians" were deceived into believing that Christmas, New Year's, Easter, etc. which were substituted for the Festival Days.
Jews were deceived into believing that the crescent moon was the moon of the new month and therefore based their religious feasts on the wrong calendar.
The ETERNAL equates "though your sins be like scarlet" to bringing futile sacrifices, burning incense, keeping new moons, Sabbaths and calling of assemblies. These are not the ETERNAL's set-apart days but they are manmade days. They are what religions celebrate today.
(Isaiah 1:14) (NKJV) Your New Moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates; they are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them.
But thankfully, the Mashiach is going to restore the SOVEREIGN's Way, including the Festivals. Those who rebelliously won't keep the SOVEREIGN 's Special Set-apart Days now, who sneer at them in scathing contempt, will observe them after the ETERNAL stands with His feet on the Mount of Olives. As soon as the ETERNAL comes to rule and reign on earth, He will awaken the Mashiach first and then the Prophet from their sleep of death. Both the Mashiach and the Prophet will bring the remnant remaining of Israel (including all tribes) back to the Promised Land. That event will conclude the Time of Jacob's Trouble. The next major event will be the Day of the ETERNAL's Wrath. The Millennium Years begin after the Terrible Day of the ETERNAL's Wrath and during these years of Peace the Festivals will be restored. Notice what this scripture says:
(Zechariah 14:17-19) (ESV) 17And if any of the families of the earth [including Gentile nations] do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the ETERNAL of hosts, there will be no rain on them. 18And if the family of Egypt does not go up and present themselves, then on them there shall be no rain; there shall be the plague with which the ETERNAL afflicts the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths. 19This shall be the punishment to Egypt and the punishment to all the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths.
After the Mashiach takes his rightful position as King of kings, he will require obedience to the ETERNAL's customs or there will be dire consequences. These passages give us the method by which the Mashiach will "rule with the rod of his mouth" (Isaiah 11:4), of how he will use supernatural force to bring people of all nations to the CREATOR's right Way. In contrast, those who find the ETERNAL's Way will find that His Way is the cause of real blessings.
Psalms 110 - The Coronation of the Prophet.
Yes, our SOVEREIGN will set his hand to save mankind. He will stand on the Mount of Olives (and the mount will split in two) in full glory and power. He is coming to rule all nations and every knee will bow (Isaiah 45:23).
The ETERNAL will first awaken David who will be the firstborn then the Prophet Elijah will be awakened. Then by directing both of them He is going to set up a worldwide governmental system composed of two sections consisting of church and state. These sections will both be directed by the Supreme and Total SOVEREIGN.
Under the SOVEREIGN, King David, the Mashiach, will be King of kings in the SOVEREIGN's World Government. Elijah, the Prophet, will establish and administer the ETERNAL's Way of education and worship producing peaceful, happy living for all of humankind. Let us take a little side trip and find out more about the Mashiach and the Prophet.
The next series of scriptures show a conversation of two persons/beings. One is our CREATOR and the other is the Priest who is being installed into his office as High Priest in these very verses:
(Psalms 110:1-3) (KJV) 1The 'LORD'[#H3068] said unto my 'lord' [#H113], Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 2The 'LORD' [#H3068] shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 3Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
(Psalms 110:4-7) (KJV) 4The 'LORD' [#H3068] hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. 5The 'Lord' [#H136] at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. 6He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. 7He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
"The English word 'lord' in verse 1 is translated from the Hebrew word "adown" and is from an unused root (meaning to rule); sovereign, i.e. controller (human or spiritual) (Strong's #H113) and refers to King David.
"The English word 'lord' in verse 5 is translated from the Hebrew word "Adonay" and is an emphatic form of #H113; "LORD" (used as a proper name of "God" only) (Strong's #H136) and refers to our CREATOR.
"In order to understand this scenario, imagine you are behind three thrones facing ahead of you with you standing behind them.
Seated in the center Throne is the ETERNAL. The Priest is ahead of and to the ETERNAL's left hand and David is ahead of and to His right. Both the ETERNAL and David are to the right of the Priest.
From the ETERNAL's
The first stanza of (Psalms 110:1-3) is about David. The Priest is speaking to David and says, "the ETERNAL told my sovereign [King David the Mashiach], 'Sit on My right hand until I send forth the rod of My strength and make your enemies your footstool.' The ETERNAL also told David, 'Rule in the midst of your enemies and the people will offer themselves willingly in the day of warfare. And David will stand from the grave in the strength of his youth.'"
The second stanza (Psalms 110:4-7) is about the Priest. The Priest is still speaking to David and says, "the ETERNAL has sworn and will not repent when He told me 'you are a Priest forever after the order of Melchizedek and David at your right hand does crush kings and will judge among the nations and will fill them with dead bodies. He shall drink of the brook by the wayside; therefore, He shall lift up the head.
Nevertheless, who can this priest/prophet be who will be the Priest with King David? The Hebrew Scriptures proclaim who he is straightforward.
(Malachi 4:1-6) (NKJV) 1For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up, says the ETERNAL of hosts, that will leave them neither root nor branch. 2But to you who fear My Name the Sun [ray] of Righteousness shall arise with healing in his wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. 3You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this, Says the ETERNAL of hosts. 4Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5Behold, I Will Send You Elijah The Prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the ETERNAL. 6And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.
The Perfect Government.
Did you know that King David is soon going to stand up from his grave to life again? The CREATOR will cause King David to arise in power and glory. When he was alive in ancient times, he ruled the 13 tribes of Israel. But in this second coming, he is coming to rule all nations! He will be King of kings directly under the SOVEREIGN Himself. He is the Mashiach (Messiah) and is coming to set up a super world government. It will be a highly organized government. There will be many positions of authority.
Right here, it is time we stop to explain the mechanics of this perfect form of government. It is the Government of our SOVEREIGN, not a human government. Man will not acknowledge it yet, but man has demonstrated by 6,000 years of inefficient, bungling, wasteful efforts of human government that mortal man is utterly incapable of rightly governing himself.
As for man being qualified to rule and administer government, the ETERNAL says of government officials today:
(Isaiah 59:4) (KJV) None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
(Isaiah 59:7-8) (KJV) 7Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. 8The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.
The people under this human mis-government say:
(Isaiah 59:9-10) (NKJV) 9Therefore justice is far from us, nor does righteousness overtake us; we look for light, but there is darkness! For brightness, but we walk in blackness! 10We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes. We stumble at noonday as at twilight; we are as dead men in desolate places.
Then in the conclusion of chapter 59 of Isaiah and the beginning of chapter 60 foretelling our time, the final solution is given regarding the coming Mashiach.
(Isaiah 59:20) (NKJV) The Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from transgression in Jacob, says the ETERNAL.
(Isaiah 60:1-3) (NKJV) 1Arise, shine; for your [the redeemer, the Mashiach] light has come! And the glory of the ETERNAL is risen upon you. 2For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the ETERNAL will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. 3The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
The only hope of justice, peace, truth, and of right solutions to all of the world's problems, is the coming in power and splendor of the ETERNAL Himself to set up His World Government. The Government of the SOVEREIGN ruled by His anointed Mashiach, King David! Yes, only then will we have right government!
In this and many other passages, the SOVEREIGN shows mankind in His Word how utterly helpless man is to govern himself and his fellows. Now 6,000 years of human experience has brought mankind to the very brink of world suicide. The world's leading scientists and statesmen say the only hope now is One World Government.
World leaders met in Geneva, Switzerland after W.W.I where they attempted to form a world organization of nations. They called it "The League of Nations," but it collapsed into W.W.II. Then in 1945 the "United Nations" replaced it but it has no power over the nations. It has no power to settle disputes, stop wars, or prevent wars. This effort has also failed, the so-called United Nations are not united. This endeavor has degenerated into a sounding board for the drumbeat of totalitarianism and corruption. This has been the goal of government and religious leaders since Nimrod established his power at Babel there establishing religion and government as a means of deceiving and controlling the people. Mankind is now failing his last chance.
The ETERNAL has a perfect master plan for accomplishing that Purpose.
That Master Plan involves a duration of 7,000 years. The seven literal days of Creation were a type. They set the pattern. The first six were days of physical creation. The seventh day of that first week began the spiritual creation, still going on. On that day, the SOVEREIGN created His Sabbath, setting it apart for spiritual use. On that day, our SOVEREIGN instructed the first man and woman in His Spiritual truth. On that day He taught the truth of His Word to them, explaining about and offering them, freely, His wonderful gift of eternal life , symbolized by the "tree of life" in the Garden. He also explained that the wages of sin , rebellion against His Government , was death.
So our SOVEREIGN allotted the first six thousand years to physical man, to live his own way (deceived and swayed by Satan), to prove by 6,000 years of suffering mountainous evils, that only the SOVEREIGN's Way can bring desired blessings. That 6,000 years we may call "The Day of Man" followed by a millennium of spiritual rest, under the enforced Government of our SOVEREIGN.
There will be no incompetent and selfishly ambitious politicians seeking to get their hot little covetous hands on the throttle of government power by the deceptive political methods of this world. It has been shown time after time that candidates have been voted into office not because they were a good choice for the position but that they had the most charismatic political swaying power. In the soon coming sovereignty Government by man's CREATOR every official placed in authority shall have been tried and tested, trained, experienced and qualified by our SOVEREIGN's qualifications.
Perfect Government Planned from the Beginning.
Now we come to a marvelous revealed insight into the wonderful planning, preparing, and organizing of the perfect Government of the CREATOR.
It began in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve were booted out for disobedience.
(Genesis 3:19) (NKJV) In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return.
Therefore, the CREATOR gave man 6,000 years of being cut off from Him to figure it out. Yet, He reserved the prerogative of calling to special service and contact with Himself any human as He should choose for His Purpose. During this Day of Man, the SOVEREIGN has prepared for His own millennial civilization in all its phases, governmental, educational, spiritual, His whole civilization.
In the soon coming Government of the Wonderful World of Tomorrow, every official placed in authority shall have been tried and tested, trained, experienced and qualified by the SOVEREIGN 's qualifications.
The CREATOR planned ahead not only for His Government to rule the earth, but He had said to man in effect, "Go, plan your own human governments, create in your own imaginations your own 'gods' and religions; develop your own knowledge and educational structure, plan your own social systems (in a word, organize your own human civilization)."
Not even a human government does anything without planning and since the CREATOR has promised a Wonderful World of Tomorrow (Isaiah 11), and He has been working His Plan for numbers of years, so surely He has been training men down through the millenniums.
Elijah and King David were especially trained to do the job that the SOVEREIGN gave them.
The ETERNAL began early training men for top positions of authority in His coming Wonderful World of Tomorrow starting with the ancient Patriarchs. Now we will pick up the thread beginning with Abraham. Abraham lived in the most "advanced" civilization of his time, the most developed and, the most desirable locality for the job ahead.
(Genesis 12:1) (NKJV) Now the ETERNAL had said to Abram: get out of your country, from your family and from your father's house, to a land that I will show you.
There was no argument. Abraham did not say, "But why? Why must I give up all the pleasures of this civilization, give up even my relatives and friends?" Abraham did not argue or delay. Scripture just says, "So Abram departed" (Genesis 12:4).
Abraham was put to severe tests. He failed some but after he died the ETERNAL said of him:
(Genesis 26:5) (NKJV) because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.
The CREATOR started preparing for His Kingdom early on by training top personnel for positions in His Civilization for example with Abraham. When Abraham proved obedient, the CREATOR blessed his labors and blessed him to become wealthy. Abraham was given experience in the wise handling of vast wealth and in directing a great force of men under him.
Isaac was reared by SOVEREIGN-fearing, SOVEREIGN-obeying Abraham, obedient to the CREATOR's Government in all His Ways. Isaac became heir along with his father Abraham. He too was trained in obedience and in directing and ruling over others.
Then Jacob, born with this rich heredity, was educated to follow through on the same pattern Abraham and Isaac had learned. Although his father-in-law deceived him and held him back financially, Jacob also became wealthy. Jacob was human as were Abraham, Isaac, and all humans. He made mistakes. Nevertheless, he overcame. He repented. He prevailed with his Maker and was renamed Israel. He never quit. He developed the qualities and character of leadership. He became the father of the twelve greatest nations-to-be in the soon-coming Wonderful World of Tomorrow.
Both Government and Religion.
Another principle is made clear in Scripture: Both Government and Religion will be united under the SOVEREIGN. There will be one government over all nations. There will be one Religion , one SOVEREIGN , one belief system based on one set of Scripture , one educational system , one social order. In addition, as in the ETERNAL's original pattern in ancient Israel, they will be united. For this to take place it requires both the Witness and the Mashiach.
Have you ever wondered where the SOVEREIGN will be during this time? To understand that question lets understand the phrase "In that day" is the conclusion of the time of Jacob's Trouble (tribulation). So, where will the ETERNAL be "in that day"?
(Zechariah 14:4) (NKJV) And in that day His [the ETERNAL's] feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.
For the ETERNAL's Way of Life, Elijah spent his entire life battling the religion of "Baalism" and he, above all others, is represented in Scripture as the prophet who restored the worship of the true SOVEREIGN and obedience to His Commandments. When Elijah ordered King Ahab to gather on Mount Carmel with "all Israel" (1 Kings 18:19-21) and the prophets of "Baal" and of "Asherah" (pronounced easter), he said: "How long will you falter between two opinions? If the ETERNAL is the SOVEREIGN, follow him: but if B-al, follow him..." (1 Kings 18:21).
The ETERNAL's Government will be a government from the top down. There is to be a definite chain of authority. No one will be elected by the people. Mortal humans have proven they do not know how to judge qualifications and do not know the inner minds, hearts, intents, and abilities of men. All will be sovereignly appointed from above. All in positions of governmental authority will be righteous spirit beings no longer flesh-and-blood humans.
The Mashiach under the direction of the ETERNAL is the one who will gather the righteous remnant back to Israel somewhere around the end of the Time of Jacob's Trouble. Please note that only the ETERNAL can unite the two houses, the House of Israel and the House of Judah, and bring them back to Israel. The ETERNAL has never given that job to anyone else. Using the Mashiach, King David, the ETERNAL will direct the reuniting of the two Houses of Jacob.
Structure of the SOVEREIGN's Government.
We know that our SOVEREIGN is now and will always be over all other beings. The ETERNAL has no adversary. We know from Scripture that humans have an adversary, Heylel, but the SOVEREIGN has no adversary. See: (Job 1-2). In the coming Sovereignly Government we do not know what job each of the Patriarchs will have. The only ones that are specifically mentioned are King David and the Prophet Elijah.
We know that King David of ancient Israel is to be King of kings and Master of masters. King David will be the firstborn and the highest King on earth.
(Psalms 89:20-28) (NKJV) 20I have found My servant David; With My holy oil [spirit] I have anointed him, 21With whom My hand shall be established; Also My arm shall strengthen him. 22The enemy shall not outwit him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him. 23I will beat down his foes before his face, And plague those who hate him. 24But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him, And in My name his horn shall be exalted. 25Also I will set his hand over the sea, And his right hand over the rivers. 26He shall cry to Me, You are my Father, My SOVEREIGN, and the rock of my salvation. 27Also I [the ETERNAL] will make him My firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth. 28My mercy I will keep for him forever, And My covenant shall stand firm with him.
The awakened King David, now immortal and in power and splendor, will be King over all of the nations of the earth. Therefore, since King David will be the King of the entire earth, he will truly be, 'The King of Kings'.
(Genesis 49:10) (NKJV) The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh comes; and to him shall be the obedience of the people.
The Companion Bible adds the word "he" so that verse then reads "Until, he, Shiloh comes."
The English word "Shiloh" comes from the Hebrew word "Shiyloh" and is "an epithet of the Messiah" and is from #H7951 "shalah" meaning "tranquil i.e. secure or successful" both words together mean "the one who will be successful in bringing peace and tranquillity." Therefore, King David will be the Prince of Peace.
King David will be king over the twelve great nations composed of literal descendants of the thirteen tribes of Israel. Each tribe will have its own king. However, in every case these kings and rulers will be immortals, not flesh-and-blood mortals. And in every case they will be those who qualified by overcoming, spiritual character development, growth in the ETERNAL's knowledge, also having training in being ruled by the ETERNAL's Law and Government as well as learning to rule.
The nations of the two houses of Ephraim and Judah (descended from Jacob) will again become the leading nations of the Commonwealth of Greater Israel or the House of Israel (Jeremiah 30:16-18; Jeremiah 31:4-11, Jeremiah 31:18-20; Isaiah 14:1-2; Deuteronomy 28:13). Then next to them will be the nations descended from the other tribes of Israel in the Commonwealth which will be the leading nations of the world.
There will be two main nations that will serve with Israel; they are Egypt and Assyria (Germany). These three nations together will be a blessing in the midst of the land and the three will be blessed by the SOVEREIGN.
(Isaiah 19:23-25) (NKJV) 23In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come into Egypt and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians will serve with the Assyrians. 24In that day Israel will be one of three with Egypt and Assyria; a blessing in the midst of the land, 25whom the SOVEREIGN of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.
The rest of the world will be organized under the twelve tribes (Isaiah 49:5-7) and their kings. In addition, each foreign nation will have its own king. Next after them but still prosperous and full of abundant blessings will be the Gentile nations who choose the CREATOR as their SOVEREIGN.
Thus, King David will rule over all and will be King of kings over all of the SOVEREIGN's Government.
What a paradox! Mortal people still on this earth are going to be forced to be happy, to have peace, to find abundant and joyful living just by honoring and obeying the CREATOR. Do not forget that the tribes of Israel (Jacob) were promised to be a Kingdom of Priests and a Holy Nation for an example to the rest of the world. But the offer came with strings attached, namely, that they had to honor the covenant the ETERNAL made with them. However, they failed to do so anciently, so it looks like it will take 'The Time Of Jacob's Trouble' to encourage them in the right direction.
(Exodus 19:5-6) (NKJV) 5Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. 6And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.
The Pattern of Government Organization.
We can speculate on how other leaders may be used, but this is only human speculation based on their lives as portrayed in Scripture. There are many, many others such as the judges and the righteous kings, but we have picked a few others who in our minds could be used.
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob may function as a topflight team, with Abraham as Chairman. Abraham proved obedient and the SOVEREIGN blessed his labors and allowed him to become wealthy which included directing a great force of men under him. Isaac was reared by SOVEREIGN-fearing, SOVEREIGN-obeying Abraham, obedient to SOVEREIGN's Government. He became heir along with his father Abraham. Isaac too was trained in obedience and was also skilled in directing and ruling others. Then Jacob, born with this rich heredity, was educated to follow through in the same pattern in which Abraham and Isaac had learned. Although Jacob's father-in-law deceived him and hindered him monetarily for many years, Jacob also became wealthy.
Moses could be a candidate to function in a position dealing with both national and international government. He has had experience in dealing with stubborn governments and was a great leader of Israel.
When the SOVEREIGN through the Prophet Ezekiel named three of the most righteous men who ever lived, He named Daniel as one of them. The other two were Noah and Job (Ezekiel 14:14, Ezekiel 14:20). In addition, it is probable that the ETERNAL will assign Noah and Job to offices of very great magnitude.
Daniel was thrown into almost daily contact with the king in one of the first world government. Though that was human government, Daniel proved completely loyal and obedient to the SOVEREIGN and His rule. He would obviously fulfill a needed role in the Government. Daniel will be in the First Awakening (Daniel 12:13), the awakening of the righteous. He could be one that is King over the Assyrians (see the section "Structure of the SOVEREIGN's Government" above).
Noah walked and talked with the CREATOR and was a just man (Genesis 6:9 and Genesis 7:1). Obviously he could be used in the righteous education in the ETERNAL's Way. But Noah, in the Awakening, immortal in power and glory, may also be given the power to enforce the SOVEREIGN's Ways concerning race relations.
It seems a possibility that righteous Noah, after the First Awakening of the Righteous, will head a vast project of the relocation of the races and nations within the boundaries the SOVEREIGN has established for their own best well being, happiness, and richest blessings. This will be a tremendous operation. It will require great and vast organization reinforced with the SOVEREIGN 's power to move whole nations and races. This time, peoples and nations will move where the SOVEREIGN has planned for them and no defiance will be tolerated.
Joseph was a son of Israel and great-grandson of Abraham. From a logical point of view, it would seem that Joseph, who became food administrator of Egypt, the greatest nation on earth of that era, would have tremendous responsibilities in the Wonderful World of Tomorrow. Joseph was synonymous with "prosperity." Joseph's primary job could be as the King of Egypt (see the section "Structure of the SOVEREIGN's Government" above).
(Genesis 39:2-3) (KJV) 2And the ETERNAL was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and the ETERNAL made all that he did to prosper in his hand. 3And his master saw that the ETERNAL was with him, and that the ETERNAL made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
Joseph was actually made ruler for the pharaoh of the world's greatest nation. Remember that his specialty was dealing with the economy, with prosperity. In addition, what ever he did, he did it the SOVEREIGN's Way.
It seems possible, therefore, that Joseph could be made director of the world's economy, its agriculture, its industry, its technology, and its commerce, as well as its money and monetary system. These systems will be on the international level, the same in every nation.
Speculating, Joseph could develop a large and perfectly efficient organization of immortals made perfect with and under him in this vast administration. This could be an administration that will eliminate famine, starvation, and poverty. There will be no poverty-stricken slums for righteous nations (Micah 4:4). There will be universal prosperity.
Job was the wealthiest and greatest man of the east (Job 1:3). He was so upright and perfect that the SOVEREIGN pointed out Job and even allowed L-cifer to test his character. Actually, there was a terrible sin in Job's life, self-righteousness. Read how the SOVEREIGN brought him to a change of mind. See: (Job 38-42)
Another tremendous project on the worldwide international level will be that of rebuilding the waste places and the construction of whatever really great and large buildings or structures the CREATOR will require for the world He will create.
(Isaiah 61:4) (KJV) And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.
It could be that Job was a great master builder. (Compare Job 3:13-14 with the SOVEREIGN's challenge in Job 38:4-6). Once this man of such strength of self mastery that he could be so righteous in his own strength was humbled and brought to reliance on the SOVEREIGN, well, in our earthly speculation no man could equal him as an engineer over vast stupendous world projects.
Indication is strong, therefore, that Job could be director of worldwide urban renewal rebuilding the waste places and the destroyed cities, not as they are now, but according to the SOVEREIGN's pattern, vast engineering projects, such as dams and power plants, or whatever the ruling Anointed One shall decree.
So much for the New World super-civilization speculation on the national and international level. Now we come to the World of Tomorrow on the individual level. The New Covenant educational system and worshipping system will be highly organized.
Captives Brought Home.
When the Anointed One, David, awakens in the first rising as the first of the firstfruits in the full supreme power and glory of the CREATOR SOVEREIGN, he is coming to set up the CREATOR's World Government. He will rule this earth with the rod of his mouth. His job at that time will be to bring the remaining remnant out of captivity to Jerusalem.
It is interesting to note that most people will be reluctant to follow the "real" Mashiach because they have been conditioned by religions of the world that "the anti-christ" is coming to deceive people into believing lies about their "gods." Therefore they will be afraid to follow anyone who is not called by their "god's" name.
Other religions will not recognize King David's ways because his ways are not according to their beliefs and therefore refuse to obey him. What a confused world this is. That is why a "prophet" is needed at that time during the Time of Jacob's Trouble to re-educate the remnant to believe the SOVEREIGN's Way.
Of course, there will be great opposition and that is why the Mashiach, David, will have to back his word by the rod of his mouth. In other words, he is going to back what he says by power given to him by the CREATOR Himself. David has been given the job of bringing the remnant back to Jerusalem and that is exactly what he will do no matter what the circumstances require.
Upon David's success of freeing the captive remnant from the nations where they were taken during the Time of Jacob's Trouble, he will take the remnant to the wilderness where the ETERNAL separates the sheep (the righteous) from the goats (those who rebel and do not obey the CREATOR). Those who are righteous and are worthy will go to the Valley of Jezreel where they will become the CREATOR's people. At that time they will receive a pure language.
(Zephaniah 3:9) (KJV) For then will I turn to the people a pure language that they may all call upon the name of the ETERNAL, to serve Him with one consent.
With all the Mashiach's responsibilities of ruling the earth and freeing the captive remnant, there will require, simultaneously, reeducating the world. Close to half of all people on earth today are illiterate, and many more do not even have a clue who the real SOVEREIGN is.
Chapter 5 - Education and Religion of Tomorrow.
About half of all people on earth today are illiterate. Thus, they are ignorant of the Scriptures unless it has been spoken to them. It is not that they have rejected truth or refused to understand it they just do not have any education other than what they need to survive in their land. So what does the ETERNAL say:
(Zephaniah 3:8-9) (NKJV) 8Therefore wait for Me, says the ETERNAL, Until the day I rise up for plunder; My determination is to gather the nations To My assembly of kingdoms, To pour on them My indignation, All My fierce anger; All the earth shall be devoured With the fire of My jealousy. 9For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, That they all may call on the name of the ETERNAL, To serve Him with one accord.
Reeducating the World.
Now consider those in our more universally educated affluent nations, the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, and such nations, in other words, the Anglo Saxon people.
We covered a section on this world's paganized, agnostic, decadent education earlier in this pamphlet. The academic system was founded by the pagan philosopher Plato. It has always remained pagan. Injected into it, in more recent times, has been German rationalism, and the atheistic theory of evolution.
Evolution, the atheist's attempt to explain creation without the CREATOR, is the basic concept on which modern education has been built. Modern education is a mixture of truth and error, fact and fable and mostly fable. One of the first things that I can remember being taught is the false fable of "Santa Claus." We all know that it is a false fable, yet it is still taught to young children. So goes all of modern education and with more fables than facts!
The educated of this world started at birth from scratch as far as knowledge goes. At the hour of birth they knew nothing. The process of education in this world is one of funneling knowledge into minds. It is a process of memorizing. The student is taught from textbooks. Textbooks are supposed to be true and authoritative. The student must read, study, accept, and memorize. In exams he is graded on the accuracy of repeating what was "in the book." He is not supposed to question but to accept and believe.
Modern education has been based on a false, erroneous, untrue foundation. The supposedly educated of this world, even the great minds, have absorbed false knowledge. They have been trained in a false approach to knowledge. Usually error is based on a false assumed premise or hypothesis, taken for granted, never questioned, and, of course, unproved. The "educated" minds have been filled with such false hypotheses. They have allowed a false sense of values to flood their minds.
Truth appears to these "educated minds" to be fable. What is right may be to them foolishness. That which may be utterly wrong appears to be right. They come to view things through the false concept of evolution that man is just another animal, howbeit, with more intelligence. This mis-education holds their minds captive.
It has been explained how the natural carnal mind, devoid of revealed knowledge from the ETERNAL, is limited to knowledge of the physical and material. The approach to all knowledge in the Western world has been through the evolutionary hypothesis , never through the CREATOR's revealed knowledge.
In the SOVEREIGN's millennial civilization, the basis of all knowledge dissemination will be revelation from Him who created all things. Light will replace darkness. Truth will replace error. Understanding will replace crass materialism. True knowledge will replace intellectual ignorance. To help the physical beings in the WWW, there will be a voice behind them telling them the right way to go.
(Isaiah 30:21) (NKJV) Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.
One of the great problems facing the Prophet will be that of reeducating the supposedly educated. These minds, and they are, indeed, the world's finest and best minds, have become so perverted with false education that they will be unable to accept truth until they first unlearn error. Moreover, it is at least ten times more difficult to unlearn error firmly imbedded in the mind than it is to start from "scratch" and learn new truth.
It may actually take the world's educated longer to come to a knowledge of truth, to become truly educated, than the illiterate people of this world. But, what is the basis of all true knowledge?
(Proverbs 1:7) (KJV) The fear of the ETERNAL is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
The SOVEREIGN's inspired Word is the foundation of knowledge, but the scholars of this world have been trained to hold this true foundation in prejudiced contempt.
Yes, indeed, the educating and reeducating of the world will be one of the most important tasks Elijah will face in the SOVEREIGN's Kingdom. Today people follow the false and deceptive values. Their entire thinking will require a reorientation, a complete reversal of direction.
Jerusalem - The World Capital.
After David and Elijah come on the scene, the earth will be full of the true knowledge of the SOVEREIGN as the oceans are full of water (Isaiah 11:9). How will this be brought about?
The Prophet Micah gives part of the answer.
(Micah 4:1) (KJV) But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the House of the ETERNAL shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
Prophecy uses "mountain" as a symbol of a major nation, and "hills" as a symbol of smaller nations. In other words, the Kingdom of the SOVEREIGN, the ruling Kingdom, will be established in complete authority over all of the nations, both large and small, and people will flow to the ETERNAL's Kingdom. Now continue:
(Micah 4:2-3) (KJV) 2And many nations shall come, and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the ETERNAL and to the house of the SOVEREIGN of Jacob; and He will teach us of His Ways, and we will walk in His paths. For the Law shall go forth of Zion and the Word of the ETERNAL from Jerusalem. 3And He shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
This knowledge, this teaching, and even knowledge of the SOVEREIGN's Law, shall go forth from the Temple and from Jerusalem, the new World Capital.
The CREATOR Himself will be ruling from Jerusalem with David and Elijah under His direction. This Headquarters, the World Capital of Jerusalem, then, undoubtedly will administer the world's new system of education.
The indication is that the teaching of spiritual truth, will be directed, worldwide, from this Headquarters under Elijah and the overall direct supervision of the SOVEREIGN.
The principal purpose of Elijah is to minister to the people:
(Malachi 4:5-6) (KJV) 5Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the ETERNAL: 6And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
And when, at Elijah's 18-second prayer (Malachi 4:36-37), fire fell miraculously from heaven consuming Elijah's sacrifice, the people fell on their faces, and said, "Elijah, Elijah" meaning: "the ETERNAL, He is the SOVEREIGN; the ETERNAL, He is the SOVEREIGN" (Malachi 4:39) because that is what Elijah's name means.
Actually, religious development is merely spiritual education. It also includes repentance which is just basically changing your thought pattern with the help of the ETERNAL's Righteous Spirit. Then continuing to make the right decisions develops Sovereignly righteous character in us.
It is very significant that Elijah had organized and headed three schools or colleges (2 Kings 2:3, 2 Kings 2:5; 2 Kings 4:38) at Bethel, Jericho, and Gilgal teaching the SOVEREIGN's Truth in a world corrupted by false pagan education.
There are those in religions today who believe that their doctrines are the answer to this world's problems. But that, dear brethren, is exactly why there is a Time of Jacob's Trouble. All religions are man made and all have another "god" and another "book" other than the CREATOR and His Word. The SOVEREIGN does not use a babylonian mixture of confused, disagreeing religious organizations, divided into hundreds of different concepts of theological doctrine as His instruments.
David will be successful in his duties of bringing back all of the tribes from all of the nations where they were taken captive during the Time of Jacob's Trouble and ruling the world. Elijah will be successful in reeducating the world and imparting the knowledge of the CREATOR. These will not be easy tasks because the people have been deceived for thousands of years. This will result in mankind's development of Sovereignly righteous character which is what we need to be developing in our lives today.
However, their work does not stop with just bringing Israel back to the wilderness where the righteous will enter the Valley of Jezreel. It will continue through the millennial years and even beyond.
Through the millennial years, the real world teaching will be administered by the Jerusalem Headquarters, composed of the righteous remnant and those who have been raised in the First Awakening under direct personal supervision of Elijah the Prophet. Included in those awakened, other than the obvious candidates for teaching the faith of our SOVEREIGN (today called the Abrahamic Hebrew Faith), are all of the many priests and prophets. Other candidates that are less obvious could be the following.
Enoch and other Patriarchs who walked and talked with (Genesis 5:24) will surely have a big part to perform.
Noah preached righteousness for decades to his fellow inhabitants. Was there even one person who listened to what he had to say? The answer is a resounding "no." Actually, there is no difference between his generation and our generation today. Even though we may tell those we come in contact with, and even write articles and put them on the Internet, we cannot change even one person's heart and mind. Only the CREATOR can open the eyes of the blind. It probably was very lonely for Noah in his lifetime. However, that was not the important factor for him, being faithful was.
This gives an insight into how the world may be organized and how a super world government can and will be established on earth.
Why Supernatural Force?
World leaders today are virtually unanimous in concluding that man's only hope of being saved alive for even another generation lies in establishing an all-powerful super world government. Yet, all confess that nations are utterly unable to bring that concept about.
Clement Attlee, a former British Prime Minister, said: "The world needs the consummation of our conception of world organization through world law if civilization is to survive!" Again, he said, "We do not have a lot of time. There is too much dangerous stuff in the world, and there are too many fools about, trigger-happy idiots and the like."
We could reproduce such quotes from world leaders, past and present, for the next hundred pages. Yes we all know that man is utterly helpless and unable to bring about such a solution.
Would the United States say to the leaders of other nations, "We are ready to relinquish all sovereignty over ourselves and place our great nation under the absolute rule of leaders from Russia, China, France, Egypt, and other countries?" Would the leaders in the Kremlin step down and relinquish all Communist sovereignty to a government headed by leaders from the United States and these other countries? No nation would willingly give control of themselves to another power.
In addition if men should undertake to establish a super New World Order government wielding all the military power over all nations, what form of government would it be? The men in the Kremlin would never step down in submission unless this NWO would be Russian Communism, and even then these men in the Kremlin would insist on having all the power. The Chinese communists would not submit to that either; they would demand that the NWO be their brand of Communism.
Most nations would never accept democracy as their form of government whereas the United States would accept nothing else if the people had a free will choice.
Could anything be more impossible than for this world's nations to get together in a new world government of some form each willingly surrendering all its power and sovereignty to it?
No, and even when the Almighty SOVEREIGN, the CREATOR and Ruler over the entire universe, does supernaturally intervene to set up His world government, His perfect Government, the nations will be angry. The nations will fight. Men will say, "We don't want the ETERNAL to rule over us!"
That's why King David is coming with all the power and glory of the ETERNAL's supernatural force. That is why he will rule with a rod from out of his mouth (Psalms 2:9). Man will never submit to the way of peace, prosperity, happiness, and abundant well being unless he is forced into it. How ironic is that?
Purposed Long Ago.
The ETERNAL SOVEREIGN is working out a purpose here below which He carefully planned every move toward the accomplishment of that purpose.
His first promise of this happy state was made to Abraham. The ETERNAL promised Abraham this whole earth as an everlasting inheritance for him and his children. The SOVEREIGN promised that through Abraham all nations of the earth would be blessed (Genesis 17:7-9; Genesis 18:18).
At the same time the ETERNAL began insuring the efficiency and perfection of His world-ruling government by causing Abraham, Isaac, Israel and Joseph to be trained, during a lifetime, in several basic essentials for top personnel in a government of perfection.
First of all we must have the right attitude. That is essential. The ETERNAL looks on the heart, the spirit, the attitude. That is where He looked in choosing David to be king over Israel (1 Samuel 16:6-7, 1 Samuel 16:11-12) and later to be King of kings. That is where He looks in you and in me as well. These men were trained in submission to the ETERNAL and those over them in authority. They were trained in teamwork, harmoniously working together.
Secondly, they were trained in knowledge of the true values.
After that they were trained in handling people, in wise management of people, of wealth without letting it turn their heads. In the same way King David was trained and developed.
All who made immortal will occupy important executive offices in the SOVEREIGN's coming world super government that passed their training in these essentials. All will finally realize not only the power but also the wisdom, the love, the righteousness, and perfection of the ETERNAL SOVEREIGN the Mighty One of Jacob. All know of a certainty that His Way is the right way, His Laws, the right and perfect Laws, His Rule and His Government, the perfect Government that will bring every blessing to those whom they govern.
In this manner the ETERNAL SOVEREIGN has prepared for His Kingdom. He began, long ago, selecting men of outstanding ability who would yield fully to Him, impressing into their innermost being those principles and characteristics that form the seven basic laws for success in life.
1. The right goal: all of them to be a part of the SOVEREIGN's Kingdom, the goal that inspires motivation and stimulates the ambition to achieve that goal.
2. The right teaching or education: every one of these men was freed from the shackles of pagan teaching, tradition, erroneous knowledge, false sense of values, and pagan customs. Every one was trained in the SOVEREIGN's Way based on His Law and the principles of that Law. They were trained in the way of righteousness. They became skilled in applying the principles of the SOVEREIGN's Commandments, Laws, Statutes, and Judgments.
3. Good Health: they were trained in avoiding the causes of sickness, disease, and infirmities. They were trained in keeping their minds sharp, clear, alert, balanced, and sound.
4. Drive: every one was trained to constantly put a prod on self not only to accomplish more and strive harder, but to drive the self away from wrong desires, impulses, or temptations and into the right ways of the SOVEREIGN's Law. They were trained to flee temptation. (They were all human. They all did sin, sometimes seriously, but they repented; they profited by mistakes; they overcame those things.)
5. Resourcefulness: these men learned through a lifetime. The ETERNAL allowed multiple problems, hazards, and obstacles to confront them and through the determination of these men. They learned how to face up to and solve problems, not to be defeated by them.
6. Endurance: they kept their eyes constantly on the goal. When the going got so tough that even with their resourcefulness they could not think their way through, when it appeared they were completely defeated, when it appeared hopeless to try to carry on further, they did not give up, they never quit. They endured through thick and thin, they endured to the end. They endured by faith in the SOVEREIGN.
7. Righteousness: the guidance and the help of their SOVEREIGN along with these other traits these men relied on, they walked with Him; they talked to Him; they listened to Him, whether He spoke verbally and in person or through His Scriptures. They sought wisdom from the ETERNAL. They relied on the ETERNAL for guidance, for protection, and their for every need. But, most importantly they submitted to and obeyed Him.
Compare With Today's Politicians.
Now, finally consider.
Take outstanding, superior men having undergone a human lifetime of this attitude, this training in the ways of success and perfection. Now change these men by awakening them from death in their graves into the perfection of immortality.
And consider that immortality will multiply their aptitudes, abilities and powers perhaps a million times above what they achieved as humans by infusing into them the power and splendor of the SOVEREIGN. That is what the SOVEREIGN is going to do.
Then there you have the chief executive personnel under the direction of the SOVEREIGN administering the new super world government.
Compare that to the scheming, compromising, selfishly motivated politicians that head most of the governments of this world today and other phases of civilization.
Feast your eyes for a while on the picture of the world of tomorrow which the SOVEREIGN's Government will produce, as we shall now do, and when you take your eyes from this book and look again on this drab, ugly, sin-sick world of corruption, violence and suffering, it will make you sick at heart.
Does it not truly make you want to shout for joy to realize what a civilization, what a world, is actually coming?
Just a few general afterthoughts before we leave the subject of the personnel and organization of the coming Kingdom. It is one of the joys of anticipation to realize that we shall know where they shall be placed in the near future.
Someone may ask, "What about the women?" Yes, there were outstanding women, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, Miriam, Deborah, and many others.
We would certainly suppose that women such as these would be given high positions and great honor in the Kingdom. Nevertheless, we do not presume in this present writing to suggest what it shall be.
Chapter 6 - Now Picture Tomorrow's World!
We have covered some things pertaining to the organization of the government that will rule tomorrow's world. Picture the changed conditions. Look at the solved problems.
See now a glimpse into a world of no illiteracy, no poverty, no famine and starvation. Look into a world where crime decreases rapidly, people learn honesty, there is chastity, human kindness, and happiness, a world of peace, prosperity, abundant well-being as promised.
The Population Explosion Solved.
The CREATOR predicts vast reforms everywhere in the wonderful utopian era He says will soon break out on this earth. Can you imagine it? A world making great strides in solving the most crucial problems facing mankind.
Today, the greatest and most awesome problem of all is the population explosion. Growing populations in all nations are rapidly outstripping the ability of human society and governments to sustain them.
The areas of the greatest rise in population are the underdeveloped parts of the world, the "have-not" nations of poverty, illiteracy, disease, and superstition. Remember not more than 10 percent of the earth's surface is tillable or arable land. In addition, the latest UN figures indicate the world will be a staggering 8 billion by 2013 CE.
The daily, ominous pressure of world population is one of the truly incomprehensible problems today. Nevertheless, the ETERNAL already has the solution, and how simple it is! Simply make most of the earth cultivatable.
1) Reduce the bare snow-swept craggy mountains, raise up some of the deep arid desert valleys, and change the world weather patterns. Make all the deserts green and fertile. Open up huge slices of the earth, like the Kalahari Desert, the Lake Chad basin and the Sahara in Africa, the Gobi Desert in Asia, and the great American deserts. Make green and verdant the vast wastes of Mongolia, Siberia, Saudi Arabia and many of the Western states in the U.S.
2) Thaw out the deep ice packs and snowdrifts, the permafrost and tundra from the vast almost limitless expanses of Antarctica, North America, Greenland, Northern Europe, and Siberia. Make level the awesome Pamir Knot, the huge giants of the Himalayas, the Atlas, Taurus, Pyrenees, Rockies, Sierras and Hindu Kush, level the immense sweep of the Andes, and all the other forbidding, towering, virtually uninhabitable mountains of earth.
3) Then provide good gentle rainfall in right balance just in the right season. If those things are done what will be the outcome? Multiple millions of acres of unbelievably fertile, productive, wonderful farmland suddenly becomes available, just waiting to be discovered and pioneered. Impossible? Yes, in the hands of man. However, look what the ETERNAL promises.
(Isaiah 41:14-16) (TLB) 14Despised though you are, fear not, O Israel; for I will help you. I am the ETERNAL, your Savior; I am the Righteous One of Israel. 15You shall be a new and sharp-toothed threshing instrument to tear all enemies apart, making chaff of mountains [governments]. 16You shall toss them in the air; the wind shall blow them all away; whirlwinds shall scatter them. And the joy of the ETERNAL shall fill you full; you shall glory in the SOVEREIGN of Israel.
(Isaiah 41:17-21) (TLB) 17When the poor and needy seek water and there is none, and their tongues are parched from thirst, then I will answer when they cry to Me. I, Israel's SOVEREIGN, will not ever forsake them. 18I will open up rivers for them on high plateaus! I will give them fountains of water in the valleys! In the deserts will be pools of water, and rivers fed by springs shall flow across the dry, parched ground. 19I will plant trees, cedars, myrtle, olive, the cypress, fir and pine, on barren land. 20Everyone will see this miracle and understand that it is the SOVEREIGN who did it, Israel's Righteous One. 21Can your idols make such claims as these? Let them come and show what they can do! says the SOVEREIGN, the King of Israel.
Pure Water, Fertile Deserts.
Can you imagine such a fabulous scene? Deserts becoming green, fertile, garden lands of trees, shrubs, bubbling springs and brooks, mountains brought low, and made habitable. Notice how the ETERNAL describes these conditions in many parts of the Scriptures.
(Isaiah 35:6-7) (TLB) 7The lame man will leap up like a deer, and those who could not speak will shout and sing! Springs will burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert. 8The parched ground will become a pool, with springs of water in the thirsty land. Where desert jackals lived, there will be reeds and rushes!
Read the whole 35th chapter of Isaiah starting with the ETERNAL's words:
(Isaiah 35:1-3) (TLB) 1Even the wilderness and desert will rejoice in those days; the desert will blossom with flowers. 2Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and joy! The deserts will become as green as the Lebanon mountains, as lovely as Mount Carmel's pastures and Sharon's meadows; for the ETERNAL will display His glory there, the excellency of our SOVEREIGN. 3With this news bring cheer to all discouraged ones...
Some years ago in a dry dusty canyon deep in the profusion of hills between Bakersfield and Los Angeles, California, a minor earthquake struck. The proprietors of a small resort, now almost totally ignored, and nearly always deserted because of the parched conditions of the area were considering closing up and moving elsewhere.
Suddenly, a groaning jolting earthquake rippled through the arid hills. Not long after the earth rocked and groaned beneath their feet, they heard a faint gurgling sound. They ran to the dry, dusty creek bed that coursed through their property, and were utterly amazed to see water flowing swiftly along. As the creek gradually cleared up, they found the water crystal clear and pure, sweet and refreshing to drink.
Needless to say, their business picked up. Somehow, the earthquake had broken open an underground water source sending it cascading through their property.
Think about the vast wastes of this earth. Does it sound incredible or unbelievable that the ETERNAL could make them blossom like a rose? Well, why should it?
The mountains were formed. Great forces caused gigantic upheavals, huge cracks, and slippage in the crust of the earth. Massive blocks of granite lunged up into the sky, the earth rocking and reeling in the throes of the greatest earthquakes in its history. Mountains were made, they did not just happen.
Read of the huge earthquakes yet to strike which will directly accomplish much of the rehabilitation of the land surfaces. See: (Zechariah 14:4). Scripture also says:
(Nahum 1:5) (KJV) The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
Reclaimed land in Holland.
Land Beneath Sea Reclaimed.
Man recognizes much of the wealth of the world lies beneath the seas. Oil, gold, silver, and dozens of minerals, these all remain unobtainable today lying untapped deep under the vast oceans. Also, seawater contains a great deal of gold and most of the world's gold supplies are under the oceans.
Many areas of the earth are ravaged by tidal action, by the ceaseless pounding of the surf that gradually wears away frontal land. The lowlands of Europe, Holland in particular, consist to quite an extent of land reclaimed from the sea.
Think of the multiple millions of additional acres available to mankind if some of the world's oceans were reduced in size. Now notice what the ETERNAL says they shall be. Notice it:
(Isaiah 11:15) (NKJV) The ETERNAL will utterly destroy the tongue of the Sea of Egypt; with His mighty wind He will shake His fist over the River, and strike it in the seven streams, and make men cross over dry-shod.
(Nahum 1:4) (TLB) At His command the oceans and rivers become dry sand; the lush pastures of Bashan and Carmel fade away; the green forests of Lebanon wilt.
Sounds incredible, but it's true!
Today, the United States realizes water shortages are becoming critical. Wasted water through the huge consumption of industry, through pollution, and through the prodigious amounts used by each person each day mean the ominous approach of that day when water is scarce. In the twisted weather patterns there are drought areas that have never been drought areas before.
Consequently, additional huge dams are planned, fantastically expensive seawater conversion plants are being constructed. So far, however, the cost of desalinization is completely prohibitive. Yet the ETERNAL describes a wonderful era of discovery and invention in the Wonderful World of Tomorrow, major portions of the earth reclaimed and put to productive use.
The problems of the population explosion are real and manifold. Not only does mass starvation face millions within the near future but also government leaders recognize there is an immediate concern. Food wars.
Witness what happened in India. Government troops once battled 100,000 people who were rioting because of the slaughter of "sacred" cows in their country, done in part in an attempt to stave off starvation for those same rioters.
You see there are more cattle in India than in the U.S. Yet because of religious beliefs the cattle are not eaten. They wander about the fields and into the villages and towns eating prodigious amounts of food some of which would be edible for humans. The cattle are not used for any constructive purpose.
In addition to this, terrible floods and long-term drought in many areas have produced grain shortages more severe than normal. Fully half of third world crops are traditionally lost through lack of adequate transportation and storage facilities, to rodent and insect damage, and by being siphoned off to the black market. Consequently many countries have asked the United States for help.
In the latter part of the 20th century the largest peacetime armada in all man's history was assembled, over six hundred ships, and began plying the oceans between US ports and India. In a short amount of time the vast wheat reserves of the United States were depleted. However, the famine in India was only barely staved off but is now full rage in many parts of Africa. The recent sudden disasters in American wheat areas could mean threatening famine in the United States, because she has insufficient reserves.
What about the coming years with the extremes in world weather? Government leaders fear huge food wars will be fought, each nation struggling mightily to possess the dwindling means of survival, food and water.
Sickness and Disease Feared.
A horrifying "solution" to the population explosion may right now be in the making unless the ETERNAL averts it.
With growing malnutrition and starvation comes the macabre threat of disease epidemics of massive, worldwide proportions. Already officials warn of the threat of vast epidemics of cholera, typhoid, tuberculosis, small pox, flu of various kinds, or even the dread "black death" (bubonic plague) that took the lives of millions in Europe during the 15th through the 17th centuries and in the huge plague that ravaged England in 1664 and 1665.
Reassuringly the ETERNAL says disease and sickness will finally be conquered.
Man seeks to find cures for sickness, cures for flu and the common cold, cures for cancer, sclerosis, heart disease, arthritis, deafness and blindness, muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, and all the other pain-ridden debilities of man.
Let's understand the real meaning of this word "cure." Do you realize that cures for diseases already contracted merely mean rendering the ETERNAL's laws ineffectual? It means ignoring the cause, allowing people to perpetrate the cause, and then treating only the effect. It means continuing to break nature's health laws which the ETERNAL has made to operate in the human body and then trying to prevent nature's laws from exacting their penalties.
However, the SOVEREIGN shows that when His Kingdom is in rule, He will teach people to obey His natural laws and thus stop causing sickness and disease. In other words, stop disobeying the CREATOR's Laws including the Health Laws. An example is the health laws of Leviticus 11.
The ETERNAL reveals a great result of the increased productivity of the land and the abundance of right and good foods, together with right knowledge and education in health laws, will be good health for all.
The dream of conscientious doctors may be to put themselves out of a job by finding cures for every sickness and disease. But the truth is that most ignore the causes and merely treat the symptoms, whereby tacitly encouraging people to continue causing sickness and disease by neglecting to educate them in the SOVEREIGN's Way and teaching human's way (humanism), resulting in perpetuating the medical profession. Can we have utopia with people causing themselves sickness and disease secure in the delusion that medical "science" can remove the penalty?
In the ETERNAL's new Wonderful World of Tomorrow there will probably be a place for doctors. They could be teaching people to keep well by avoiding the causes of disease. That will require an entirely new type of medical education, only we shall then drop the term "medical." A very good doctor friend once said to me: "We physicians have been kept so busy treating sicknesses and diseases that we haven't had much time to do extensive study and research into the causes of these troubles." In the SOVEREIGN's New World, they will be given ample time for that.
In the Wonderful World of Tomorrow there actually will be utopia. There will be universal good health.
How can such utopian dreams come true? It's simple. Remove the cause of disease. Okay, so how is that going to be done? Two ways:
First, by right education. Cause people to know that the CREATOR did not design the human physical body so that it must be getting sick all the time and catching continual diseases.
Sickness and disease occur only when nature's laws are broken. It is not natural to be diseased, it is unnatural. Educate people in the laws of good health and in proper diet. The CREATOR designed certain foods for good health. Some things that grow are not designed for food. Some are poison to our bodies. Educate people in sanitation, hygiene, and required amounts of sleep, pure water, fresh air, sunshine, and exercise.
Secondly, when people in spite of this education do get sick or catch a disease it can be healed, the ETERNAL's Way.
The medical equation is this: One poison in your body plus one poison in the form of medicine equals no poisons. One plus one equals nothing? That is not the way they teach second grade arithmetic.
The CREATOR's equation is different. The ETERNAL supernaturally removes the poison in the body. One minus one equals nothing. Even second-graders could figure that one out.
The combined force of right education about true health and healing of all sickness when it is repented of, will mean perfect, utopian health. Notice how the ETERNAL describes it.
(Isaiah 33:21-22 (KJV) 21But there the glorious SOVEREIGN will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby. 22For the ETERNAL is our judge, the ETERNAL is our lawgiver, the ETERNAL is our king; he will save us.
Isaiah 33:24) (KJV) And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.
Listen to this wonderful promise:
(Isaiah 35:3-6) (KJV) 3Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. 4Say to them that are of a fearful heart, be strong, fear not: behold, your SOVEREIGN will come with vengeance, even the SOVEREIGN with a recompense; he will come and save you. 5Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing....
The ETERNAL describes the rewards for obedience to His laws of mercy and love. Notice:
(Isaiah 58:8) (NKJV) Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the ETERNAL shall be your rear guard.
Happiness in Health.
In describing the conditions of good health and plenty to be ushered in upon the earth, the ETERNAL says:
(Jeremiah 30:17) (NKJV) For I will restore health to you And heal you of your wounds, says the ETERNAL, Because they called you an outcast saying: This is Zion; No one seeks her.
(Jeremiah 31:12-14) (NKJV) 12Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, streaming to the goodness of the ETERNAL; for wheat and new wine and oil, for the young of the flock and the herd. Their souls shall be like a well-watered garden, and they shall sorrow no more at all. 13Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old, together; for I will turn their mourning to joy, will comfort them, and make them rejoice rather than sorrow. 14I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people shall be satisfied with My Goodness, says the ETERNAL.
Why not have good health for the people? Why should we be so willing to believe such a perfect state of health and joy is impossible? There are blessings for observing the laws of health, absolute guarantees good health will result, and that sickness and disease will become a thing of the past. Notice what the SOVEREIGN promised His people.
(Deuteronomy 28:1-5) (NKJV) 1Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the ETERNAL your SOVEREIGN, to observe carefully all His Commandments which I command you today, that the ETERNAL your SOVEREIGN will set you high above all nations of the earth. 2And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the ETERNAL your SOVEREIGN: 3Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country. 4Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. 5Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.
Notice that we are not receiving those wonderful blessings today. Instead, we are under a curse.
Our cities are festering sores filled with the clangor and confusion of jangled traffic, riots, racial hatred, crime, pornography, air pollution, and an unhappy, wretched populace that seeks fast money so it can escape the obnoxious environment of the big asphalt and concrete "jungles" of our time.
Our fields are cursed, cursed with upset weather, drought, flood, insect damage, and disease, cursed with chemicals and man-made blight.
In the United States in 1970 one out of nine (10.7%) of all babies were illegitimate. The percentage of births to unmarried mothers rose to one out of three babies (36.8%) of total births in 2005.
In the United States about 3% of babies are born with birth defects.
The latest figures on birth defects show that one of every 33 babies is born with a birth defect. A birth defect can affect almost any part of a baby's body. Many of these are blighted at birth with a serious defect; cursed with blindness, dumbness, deafness, malformed limbs, or terrible diseases even from the womb. Some babies are born each year with cancer!
Our basket and our store is cursed as the foods we purchase have no nutritional value due to depleted soil and what we do have is irradiated to kill bacteria but which also kills the nutritional value. In addition, we are cursed with genetically modified food which in many cases our bodies cannot digest.
The national reserves of food and raw material in the USA are now gone and we face shortages here which will only get worse. These reserves were given to starving peoples of impoverished nations (to nations that rarely if ever back U.S. policies) in an admittedly temporary effort, only delaying the starvation facing millions.
Whether we like to admit it or not, our peoples are under a curse today.
Soon the great SOVEREIGN will force us to take the blessings. He will impose His warm and merciful rule on rebellious, stiff-necked mankind, and bring us compulsory joy. He will insist on happiness for us; demand plenty of goodness in our lives; command us to be healthy, and filled with a sense of well being and contentment.
The ETERNAL will stop the frightening, manifold problems of the population explosion, bad weather, sickness, and disease, and all problems relating to the population rise. This population rise results in symptoms such as over-crowding, pollution, rising crime, and the psychological pressures from big-city living, all these will be solved, and in our time. Can we give thanks to our wonderful SOVEREIGN Who will soon set up His Kingdom and His Mashiach as the King of kings?
What about Distribution of Populations?
Will there be room for the multiple billions of humans on earth? Of course there will!
Remember only 15 percent of the surface of the earth is habitable today, and not more than 10 percent is cultivatable. But when the ETERNAL makes all the earth habitable, even changing the whole weather patterns of earth, the ocean currents, and flow of arctic air, the jet streams, the pattern of mountain ranges and placement of continents, all of the earth will be occupied.
The SOVEREIGN shows individual races returning to their own lands repopulating them.
(Isaiah 27:6) (KJV) He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit.
The Eternal Says The Wastes Will Be Rebuilt.
(Ezekiel 36:9-11) (NIV) 9I am concerned for you and will look on you with favor; you will be plowed and sown, 10and I will cause many people to live on you, yes, all of Israel. The towns will be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. 11I will increase the number of people and animals living on you, and they will be fruitful and become numerous. I will settle people on you as in the past and will make you prosper more than before. Then you will know that I am the ETERNAL.
Notice a few verses later what else the ETERNAL states:
(Ezekiel 36:33-35) (NIV) 33This is what the Sovereign CREATOR says: On the day I cleanse you from all your sins, I will resettle your towns, and the ruins will be rebuilt. 34The desolate land will be cultivated instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass through it. 35They will say, This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins, desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited.
Moreover, what about all other nations? Notice:
(Isaiah 19:23-25) (NKJV) 23In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come into Egypt and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians will serve with the Assyrians. 24In that day Israel will be one of three with Egypt and Assyria; a blessing in the midst of the land, 25whom the SOVEREIGN of hosts shall bless, saying, "Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.
(Isaiah 49:6-7) (NKJV) 6Indeed He says, It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant To raise up the tribes of Jacob, And to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also give You [Israel] as a light to the Gentiles, That You [Israel] should be My salvation to the ends of the earth. 7Thus says the ETERNAL, The Redeemer of Israel, their Holy One, To Him [Israel] whom man despises, To Him whom the nation abhors, To the Servant of rulers: Kings shall see and arise, Princes also shall worship, Because of the ETERNAL who is faithful, The Holy One of Israel; And He has chosen You [Israel].
What a utopian prediction that is. Egypt and Germany are pictured in loving, respectful, serving cooperation with the very peoples they contended with in the past. Now that's real progress.
So the Scripture reveals nations that still exist, and in specific places. Scripture also reveals re-population of waste places rendered temporarily useless by the ravages of war and plagues. Sounds as though the Wonderful World of Tomorrow will be just that , WONDERFUL!
Chapter 7 - And All Speaking the Same Language.
Can you imagine a world with only one language? Think back a little. One of the major barriers to mutual understanding and cooperation between peoples has been the language barrier. When one man cannot understand another he cannot freely exchange ideas, philosophies, concepts, or opinions. Therefore during translating the personal rapport, the sense and feeling of what is being said, is lost.
If you have ever experienced talking to someone through an interpreter you probably remember how awkward you felt.
Today this world stands on the brink of cosmocide. Great races having different languages cannot seem to come to a meeting of minds. In addition, different peoples' minds work differently.
A different language means a different culture, different music, different habits, different education, different values with different standards, and a whole different approach to life.
Think what an almost unbelievable step forward it would be if all peoples everywhere spoke and read and wrote the same language.
However today vast areas of the earth do not even possess a written language. Millions upon millions are illiterate, cannot read or even write their own names.
Millions of others are sadly limited in expressing themselves even in their own language and have not bothered to learn the language of another people.
One of the great handicaps to free trade as well as the exchange of ideas and cultural thought is the language barrier.
If the language barrier were removed and everyone became totally literate with fine minds, grasping the same thoughts, capable of thinking the same terms, capable of understanding each other fully, think of the huge changes that could be effected.
First consider what a universal worldwide language would mean today with the world cut off from the ETERNAL.
Evils would multiply. Universally there would be a new age in art and perverted literature (pornography), G-dless education, Satan-inspired music, such as the US and Britain are producing over the world now, of quarreling and hostility and war between nations.
Such evils beginning at the Tower of Babel caused the ETERNAL to confound languages to prevent such evils from spreading through direct communication between peoples and nations.
However, in the Wonderful World of Tomorrow with the ETERNAL's civilization established and ruled by the Mashiach, King David, what a blessing having the same language it will be.
Man was once bound together by a common tongue from the Garden of Eden until the Tower of Babel. Sadly, after the deluge man used his knowledge for evil, for an attempt to begin the very civilization that would end by destroying itself.
When the ETERNAL divided the languages at the Tower of Babel, He was merely forestalling that eventual time of world chaos which even now threatens the annihilation of humanity.
But once the ETERNAL's Kingdom is established on this earth, David and the Prophet will usher in an era of total literacy, total education, and give the world one new pure language.
This subject by itself needs a book to describe. The whole literary processes of the whole earth will be changed. Today all languages are corrupt. They are literally filled with pagan, heathen terms, superstition, misnomers, exceptions to rules, peculiar idioms.
In our English language, Germanic in origin but with a great deal borrowed from Latin (either directly or through French) and other languages, there are many such terms we take for granted.
"Romance" comes from "Roman", because that's what the Romans did. People are called "lunatics" because of an old superstition that the moon (Latin luna) caused insanity. Some "thank their lucky stars," a holdover from astrology (which more and more of our "enlightened" society are turning to). Others even still use pagan curses such as "by Jove."
Our rockets (Thor, Agena, Atlas, and Titan) are named after pagan g-ds and g-ddesses of the Greeks and Romans and our space programs (Gemini, Apollo) are named the same way.
June brides want to get married under the sign of the ancient g-ddess of fertility (though it's not chic to have large families any more) and our days and months bear pagan names.
All languages have peculiarities of expression and grammatical oddities which cause misunderstandings and make them difficult for foreigners to learn. In most cases even native speakers have problems with their own language as Professor Higgins so astutely observed in My Fair Lady. Many are in sad need of spelling reform, English being probably the prime example (ough has about six different possible pronunciations). The modes of writing vary from Chinese which still uses a form of picture writing to a multiplicity of different alphabets including Greek, Arabic, Sanskrit, Hebrew, and Russian. Something must be done. The ETERNAL says:
(Zephaniah 3:9) (NKJV) For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the Name of the ETERNAL, to serve Him with one accord.
Think of the new era of good literature, good music, and of the avoiding of duplicated effort, misunderstandings through linguistic difficulties and thousands of painstaking hours of translations. What an age it will be when the entire world becomes truly educated speaking the same language.
What about the Economic Structure?
The ETERNAL shows that Jerusalem will become the financial capital of earth. The CREATOR says of the rebuilt city:
(Isaiah 60:5) (NKJV) Then you shall see and become radiant, and your heart shall swell with joy; because the abundance of the sea* shall be turned to you, the wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.
*The world's gold, silver, and oil reserves are mostly under the seas.
Do you know what vast wealth there is in the sea? The Dow Chemical Company, manufacturers of about 500 substances taken directly from seawater, says one cubic mile of seawater stores 175 million tons of dissolved chemicals.
Each cubic mile of seawater contains 93 million dollars worth of gold and eight and one-half million dollars worth of silver.
Each cubic mile contains seven tons of uranium, and enough other minerals, elements and chemicals in dissolution to make each cubic mile worth, in today's figures, five billion dollars.
It has been estimated that the total value of the oceans would amount to one quintillion, five hundred quadrillion dollars.
A quadrillion dollars means a thousand trillion. In addition, a trillion is one thousand billion. A billion is one thousand million. And a million is one thousand thousand. So a quintillion is one thousand quadrillions of dollars. The abundance of the sea is what is promised by the CREATOR.
As you have already read the SOVEREIGN says He will raise many places now covered by waters of the oceans which He will make much more land available. Scientists know most of the earth's raw materials lie in the strata beneath the depths of the seas.
The ETERNAL says this vast wealth will become available for constructive use during the rule of King David on this earth. In addition, the SOVEREIGN says the wealth of the world will be centered in Jerusalem and that the vast rebuilding programs, rehabilitation processes, and new-age pioneering that begin will be backed by that wealth.
(Haggai 2:6-8) (ESV) 6For thus says the SOVEREIGN of Hosts: Yet once more, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land. 7And I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this House with glory, says the SOVEREIGN of Hosts. 8The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, declares the SOVEREIGN of Hosts.
However the ETERNAL's great treasury will be for public display. No gold bricks, reposing in deep, subterranean vaults, utterly useless except for their meaning, no fear of thievery or robbery. It will made into breathtakingly beautiful decorations for the capital building of King David and the Temple in which the ETERNAL will dwell.
The gold standard will be set up and values will never change. No more speculating or gambling on other people's ability.
Never again will any person become rich from investing in the labors and creative ability of another person. No more stock markets, world banks, financing centers, insurance companies, mortgage companies, loan agencies, or time payments.
In the ETERNAL's abundant Government people will buy only what they need when they can afford it and when they have the savings to pay for it. No more interest and no more taxes! Nevertheless, the tithing system will be universal.
Today's governments demand up to 40, 50, and even 90 percent in inheritance taxes, income taxes, hidden taxes; federal, state, county, school board, and city taxes.
However, the ETERNAL requires only ten percent. And out of that ten percent will be financed the entire governmental, educational, and spiritual leadership of the whole earth.
(Malachi 3:8-10) (ESV) 8Will man rob the CREATOR? Yet you are robbing Me. But you say, How have we robbed You? In your tithes and contributions. 9You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing Me, the whole nation of you. 10Bring the full tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house. And thereby put Me to the test, says the ETERNAL of Hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
That is a prophecy for now and what a blessing that will be. There will be none of the financial burdens that curse most peoples today. Then people will not try to "keep up with the Jones's," so they will not try to live beyond their means.
They will be educated to resist impulse buying, and lustful acquisition of various gadgets, toys, playthings, and luxury items that they cannot afford and do not need.
Take the commercialism of various holidays away, expose the true origin of pagan holidays. People would have more money for the essentials of life that really count.
Reduce the really big expenses in most people's homes; take away all the taxes that are real and hidden. Take away property taxes, school taxes (since all education will then be handled by the Family of the ETERNAL and the physical family of Levi) and all other taxes; cut down totally on any medical bills (only small fees for first aid, or child delivery, or necessary physical helps), and insure no one ever again signs a 36-month contract at up to 35 or 40 percent interest on an ancient used car that falls apart while the buyer still owes more than the car is worth.
Do these things and the financial curses under which most people live will be healed. The ETERNAL says financial blessings are to become the order of the day.
Take away thievery, robbery, accidents, weather damage, rust, rot and decay from plants, stores, and manufacturing concerns. How much less could merchandise then sell for, and at how much greater profits?
Take away weather problems, insect damage, blight, and fungus from farmers, losses through government price controls and over flooding of markets, and what would be their lot in life?
Take away massive, assembly-line production of cheap, flimsy automobiles and think what would that do to solve the traffic snarls, the smog problems, the collisions and loss of life and the whole social and economic picture?
The ETERNAL will accomplish these things. How will He do so? He tells us what the first step will be.
(Ezekiel 11:19) (NKJV) Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a New Spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh.
The first step then will be changing the nature of human beings; changing their outlook toward life, removing their lust and selfishness, their covetousness and greed that drives them onward toward material goals.
Human nature covets. It lusts for the things money can buy. It longs for prestige, recognition, admiration, and popularity. It lusts for power, position, and wealth.
Ask any segment of our modern-day populations what they desire most in life and they will almost invariably answer, "money"! Actually, they want the things money can buy. They know prestige and recognition come through the acquisition of material goods. They know most people evaluate other people by what they possess , by the kind of clothing they wear, the kind of home in which they live, the kind of automobiles they drive, and the material goods they possess.
The CREATOR will provide shepherds that will teach the people the Real Truth (the CREATOR's truth). People will get the encouragement they need that can change their outlook toward life. Truth taught by caring shepherds dedicated to feeding the people will help to eliminate their lust and selfishness, their covetousness and greed that drives them onward toward material goals.
Human nature will be dealt with by truth, exposing evil for what it is. Many, many people will change their way of doing things. Ones that choose not to change their evil ways will not receive eternal life. Human nature inspired by Heylel is why Jeremiah was inspired to write:
(Jeremiah 17:9) (KJV) The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Notice. It is not a sin to be rich. However, it is a sin to covet riches or to set your heart on material things. Our SOVEREIGN is a multibillionaire heavenly Father. "The gold is mine". (Haggai 2:8)
The ETERNAL wants fullness, abundance in every life. Now look at the material "successes" you have known. How truly happy are they? As J. Paul Getty, one of the world's richest men, reputed to have said, "I'd give all my millions for just one happy marriage!"
In the ETERNAL's Kingdom these Commands of His will be obeyed. They will become the standard for regulating commerce, business, finance, and the entire economic structure of the world.
The giving standard will be followed in the SOVEREIGN's rule on this earth, not the grasping, conniving, striving, deceitful, clandestine, furtive, scurrilous, devious, cheating and lying chicanery that is commonplace in today's business world.
But until the ETERNAL breaks the haughty spirit of man (Isaiah 2:10-12, Isaiah 2:17), the peoples of earth will not be ready to accept such a wonderful, loving, generous, honest, giving standard for the whole economy.
Never again will anyone build a building he cannot afford and does not need nor lease and rent to tenants who help him pay for it. No more interest. The ETERNAL says it is sin to lend money at "usury" or interest to your brother (Leviticus 25:36).
Once each fifty years (the Jubilee year) all debts public and private will be completely cancelled (Leviticus 25:10-11).
Since governments will be in the hands of the spiritual Family of our SOVEREIGN and administered by those leaders directly under that great ruling Family. Since there will be no huge bureaus watching other huge bureaus which are suspiciously watching other bureaus; no military establishment; no "intelligence" (spy) agencies or members of Interpol; no huge cartels, monopolies, unions, or giant government spending, the economy of the world will be healed.
Think of it. No more foreign aid, none of the wasted billions to buy "lovers" (allies) (Ezekiel 23:9, Ezekiel 23:22; Lamentations 1:2, Lamentations 1:19; Ezekiel 16) who turn and rend you later. No more strings-attached government grants to industry, to science and space technology, or to schools and institutions for research. Instead every necessary industry, educational institution, and business will be in sound financial condition.
What a Wonderful World that will be living under our CREATOR's wings of love!
Statesmen, scientists, educators know the only hope for survival and for peace is one world government under a New World Order. We could quote many scores of world leaders affirming this and other scores of world leaders saying it is impossible.
So humanly the choices are "world government, or annihilation" on the one hand, or "world government is impossible" on the other hand.
That is the stark paradox of terror facing all mankind today. However what man cannot do for himself the Great Loving SOVEREIGN will do for him. World government, perfect government, is coming in our time in the hands of the Great Ruling SOVEREIGN, His Mashiach, Prophet, and unnumbered thousands of Co-Rulers given immortality with and under Him.
And that good news is that King David is to inherit the world throne which the ETERNAL had promised to him that will never cease on this earth (2 Samuel 7:13). In addition, at that time the Mighty One of Israel will be here on this earth (Zechariah 14:3-4).
The awakened Mashiach is coming in all the power and glory of the ETERNAL SOVEREIGN as "King of kings and establish the SOVEREIGN's world-ruling Kingdom over all nations (Daniel 2:44; Daniel 7:9, Daniel 7:13-14, Daniel 7:18, Daniel 7:22, Daniel 7:27; Isaiah 9:7).
King David is the firstborn (Psalms 89:27) of many brethren who will be awakened or changed to spirit life to live forever. King David will rule with a rod of iron (Psalms 2:9) to insure justice, love, and peace. When he is awakened from death, it will be his Second Advent since his first was when he was born as a human. King David knew that one-day he would teach righteousness and that sinners would be converted (Psalms 51:11-13).
King David knew that he would die but later awakened and that he and the prophet would be coronated to their office (Psalms 110)
Thus, the hope of the Righteous Remnant is in the first Awakening.
David, the King of kings made perfect in character, absolute in honesty, integrity, faithfulness, loyalty and trust; filled with outgoing loving concern for the governed, their welfare and salvation; total knowledge, understanding, wisdom. Yet, possessing total power, and never compromising one millionth of an inch with the ETERNAL's perfect Law, this is the way of love. He will enforce the ETERNAL's Law, the ETERNAL's Government on earth. He will compel haughty, carnal, rebellious humans to yield in complete submission to the ETERNAL's Way.
No one will be deceived as the vast majority of mankind is today. All will know the truth. No more religious confusion. Eyes will be opened to the truth. Humans will become teachable. People will start living the SOVEREIGN's Way, the way of outgoing loving concern for others, the way of true values, the way of peace, happiness, well-being, and joy.
Crime, sickness, disease, pain and suffering, gone! Poverty, ignorance banished. Smiles on people's face, faces that radiate. Wild animals tamed. Air pollution, water pollution, soil pollution, will be gone. Crystal pure water to drink; clean, crisp, pure air to breathe; rich black soil where deserts, mountains and seas formerly were producing full-flavored vitalized foods; and fantastic beauty in flowers, shrubs, and trees. A world filled with happy radiating humans, guided, helped, protected, and ruled by former mortals made immortal, and all the humans realizing that they, too, may inherit everlasting life in supreme happiness and thrilling joy.
What a fabulous glorious picture!
The Good News of the Wonderful World of
Tomorrow soon coming to planet earth!
Appendix - 7000 Year Time Plan.
Have you ever wondered what year of the world the year 2000 really was? Maybe it was the Gregorian Year of 2000/2001? Perhaps it was the Jewish Year 5760/5761? Or was it the Year of the World 6000? Keep reading to find the answer.
It has been postulated that the CREATOR's Master Plan in this stage for mankind will last for a duration of 7,000 years. Some scholars believe that the seven literal days of the Creation Week were a millennia type and that they set the pattern for the 7,000 year duration.
To understand the time setting for The Wonderful World of Tomorrow there are things that we must understand about the new millennium, the 21st Century. Technically, the new millennium did not begin until midnight December 31, 2000 with the arrival of the year 2001. For all practical purposes the powerful symbolic value of the round number 2000 has won the day as the beginning of the new millennium. Few of us realize however that our concept of marking time in 1,000-year segments is rooted in Scripture.
We must go back to the Psalms to find the germ of the idea of dividing time into eras or periods of one thousand years. This notion was picked up and made central by early "Christians" who gave it an apocalyptic cast in the [New Testament]™. Revelation's thousand-year period is allegedly the final one thousand years culminating in the resurrection of the dead and the last great Judgment.
Dividing time into thousand-year segments occurs in Psalms where the sweet psalmist of Israel stated:
(Psalms 90:4) (NKJV) For a thousand years in Your [the ETERNAL's] sight Are like yesterday when it is past, And like a watch in the night.
There seems to be an analogy between:
The Festival Days: Night of Protection, First Day of Unleavened Bread, Last Day of Unleavened Bread, Feast of Weeks, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Feast of Booths with The Last Great Day.
The periods of human history that would last precisely 6,000 years are followed by a final seventh "day" or millennium that is the final 1,000 years. This final 1,000 years like the Sabbath day will be characterized by peace and rest and will also include the First Awakening. It would be realized in the Davidic Kingdom referring generally to a "millennial reign of the Messiah (Mashiach)"; more specifically to a utopian view of a Wonderful World of Tomorrow of which the last 100 years of the millennial reign will be the Second Awakening.
The first six days of the first week symbolizes the physical creation. The seventh day of that first week began the spiritual creation that is still going on. In addition, on that day the CREATOR created His Sabbath Day of rest thus setting it apart for spiritual use. Also on that day the CREATOR instructed the first man and woman in His spiritual truth. On that day He taught His Way to them explaining His wonderful gift of eternal life and offering it to them freely; it was symbolized by the "tree of life" in the Garden of Eden. He also explained that the rebellion against His Way would end in death, which is physical death.
Various ancient Jewish and "Christian" sources have suggested that the Book of Genesis anticipates later divisions of time into millennia. They see an analogy between:
The periods of human history that would last precisely 6,000 years followed by a final seventh "day," or millennium, the final 1,000 years. The final 1,000 years like the Sabbath day would be characterized by peace and rest and would be realized in the Davidic Kingdom. The Sabbath has come to mean relief from the toil and domination of Satan's evil grasp upon this planet. The word "millenarianism" refers generally to any utopian view of a transformed New Age, but more specifically to a "millennial" reign of the Mashiach (Messiah). In particular it refers to 1000 year Davidic Kingdom reign culminating in The Second General Awakening of the dead into the ETERNAL's Wonderful World of Tomorrow.
The notion that our CREATOR created the physical world in six days and rested on the Sabbath and that He would create a New World of spiritual perfection over a 7,000-year period, has become commonplace in nearly all churches. In this world of apocalyptic symbolism, six is the number of humankind operating without the ETERNAL. Seven symbolizes the perfection or completion that the Kingdom of the ETERNAL will bring about a Sabbath rest.
In Jewish and "Christian" apocalyptic circles, the idea that 6,000 years of human history would unfold according to an overall plan in an ordered sequence orchestrated by the will of The Mighty One was and is compelling. However, it also offered a second, far more alluring possibility, that of approximating when the end of the age as we know it would occur. Knowing this would give us an approximation of when the Wonderful World of Tomorrow might be established.
After all, if one could determine precisely where one lived in this unfolding sequence of millennia, the idea of the time of the End of the Age drawing near would become much more real to us. In addition, that brings us back to the year 1999. The millennium now ending, the 2nd millennium as dated from the birth of the man from Galilee, is the 6th millennium based on the literal chronology of the Hebrew Scriptures. We will do the numbers together:
From Adam to Noah's Flood = 1,656 years
From the Flood to the birth of Abraham = + 454 years
From Abraham to the Exodus = + 430 years
From the Exodus to Jerusalem's First Temple = + 480 years
From the First Temple to the Israelite Exile = + 393 years
From the Exile to rebuilt Temple under Persians = + 72 years
Total = 3,485 years
"The year 3,485 BCE takes us to the time of the prophets Haggai and Zechariah and the completion of the rebuilt Temple by Jews returning from the Exile in 516-515 BCE, the sixth year of the reign of the Persian King Darius (Ezra 6:15). That works out to be just about 2,515 years ago. Add the numbers together, 2,515 years taking us back to the time of Darius and another 3,485 years taking us back to Adam, You guessed it. We were then sitting on the cusp of the 5,999th year of world history, based on a literal reading of the Hebrew Scriptures. Now that we are past the 2000/6000 year marker in the days of man, we are no doubt walking on borrowed time.
"However if you are familiar with the traditional Jewish calendar you will immediately spot a problem. According to their calendar 1999 is the year 5760 since Adam and Eve rather than 5999. So how can we account for the 240-year difference? The answer is that the traditional Jewish calendar, based on the rabbinic text called Seder Olam, is rooted in rabbinic tradition and theology, not on literal numbers taken directly from the Hebrew Scriptures. The rabbinic chronology results in 163 fewer years and dates the Babylonian Exile to 423 BCE. This is impossible according to modern scholarship; we know with certainty that the 19th year of Nebuchadnezzar when he destroyed Jerusalem, burned the Temple and exiled the Jews, was either 587 or 586 BCE. The rabbis also count Israel's time in Egypt based on Exodus 12:40 differently from what I [Dr. Tabor] have done above, accounting for an additional difference of 77 years between the rabbinic and 'Christian' systems, giving us a discrepancy of 240 years".
In any case, most people do not believe that the world began only 6,000 years ago. They believe that Homo Sapiens existed many hundreds of thousands of years ago. A mere 6,000 years is a blink of an eye against human and planetary evolution. However, there are millions of creationists who do take these numbers as absolutes and who believe that the first human beings with a human soul can be traced back to a literal Adam and Eve around 4000 BCE. But beyond that, there are many conservative Bible believers who fully accept the evolutionary timetable of millions of years for the development of life on this planet (interpreting the days of Creation in Genesis 1 as ages) but nonetheless see civilization (literate humans in Egypt, Sumer and China) as dating only to approximately 4000 BCE. Thus, those who see the chronology in the Scriptures as a metaphor for scientific chronology can still maintain that human history has about run its course.
What is particularly intriguing about the general chronological scheme of 6,000 years (our year 2000 equals 6000 years after Adam) is that it does not have the slightest relationship to the birth of a man from Galilee. All the numbers are taken from the Hebrew Scriptures. Yet, there is a fascinating correlation between the Hebrew and the "Christian" Calendars. In and of itself, passing the 2,000th year mark since the supposed birth of J-sus appears to have no significance in the Hebrew Scriptures or even in the [New Testament]™. There are no passages in the [New Testament]™ that specifically state that the present age is to last 2,000 years.
(Joshua 24:15) (TLB) But if you are unwilling to obey the ETERNAL, then decide today whom you will obey. Will it be the 'gods' of your ancestors beyond the Euphrates or the 'gods' of the Amorites here in this land? But as for me and my family, we will serve the ETERNAL.
So the CREATOR allotted the first six thousand years for physical man to live his own way (deceived and swayed by Lucifer) to prove by 6,000 years of suffering mountainous evils that only His Way can bring desired blessings. Those 6,000 years we can call "The Day of Man."
So in other words the CREATOR allotted the first 6,000 years to allow Lucifer to labor at her work of deceiving mankind as a test to determine who would love the SOVEREIGN with all their heart, mind, soul, and being. Those who have done that will be in the 1000 Years or Seventh Day. Put another way, the CREATOR SOVEREIGN marked out six millennial days to allow man to indulge in the spiritual labor of sin followed by a millennium of spiritual rest under the enforced Government of the CREATOR Himself.
The Observational, Scriptural, Hebrew Calendar, has Abib 1 as beginning at sunset on April 18, 2000 on the Gregorian Calendar. This first day of Abib in the year 2000, approximately began the 6000th year of the world from Adam.
What is the significance of this new knowledge? When in the scope of world history does the Time of Jacob's Trouble (Tribulation) begin and end? Who but the ETERNAL, knows what He has planned and when He has it planned to happen.
But, there will come a time that there will be a voice behind you saying, "Don't turn to the left or to the right" and in that day a little child will lead a lion and lamb together (Isaiah 11). That time is The Wonderful World of Tomorrow and oh how great a blessing that Day will be. See you there.

The Battle of Guadalcanal was fought between 8/7/42 and 2/9/43 in the pacific theatre of World War II. This campaign fought on the ground, at sea, and in the air, pitted Allied forces against Imperial Japanese forces, and was a decisive, strategically significant campaign of World War II. The Battle was one of the first prolonged campaigns in the Pacific. These gains cost the Americans 2,142 killed in action and 5,472 wounded, with thousands more disabled for varying periods by disease. For the Japanese, losses were even more traumatic: 14,800 killed in battle, another 9,000 dead from disease, and about 1,000 taken prisoner.

"Paul is not mentioned by name, but he is strongly hinted at as the supreme enemy under the disguise of 'Simon Magus', against whom Peter is represented as polemicizing. Peter's attack on this lightly disguised Paul is on the grounds that he is a false prophet, that he has spread lies about Peter and, most telling of all, that he knows nothing about the true teaching of Jesus, since he never met him in the flesh and bases his ideas of Jesus on delusive visions. That this 'Simon Magus' is really Paul is now accepted by scholars, despite many desperate attempts to resist this conclusion made by critics of Baur who realized how profound would be the consequences of such an admission. For it shows that Paul, far from being a unanimously accepted pillar of the Church, like Peter, was a controversial figure, whose role in the founding of 'Christianity' was a subject of great contention (p 180)."

 This article was adapted from an article by Dr. James Tabor.
 According to Catholic/Protestant theology.
 See the essay: "Quest for the Messiah".
 "Although there are a number of ambiguities in the chronological system that runs through the Masoretic text, these numbers are generally quite easy to come up with from a literal reading of Genesis 5:11,25; Exodus 12:40; 1 Kings 6:1; the Exile and Return as described in 2 Kings 25 and Ezra; and passages chronicling the reigns of the kings of Judah. However, the writings of Josephus and of the Septuagint give very different numbers throughout." Dr. Tabor's note.
 Dr. Tabor wrote his original article in late 1999 CE just before the beginning of the 5999th year of the world that began after midnight on December 31, 2000. Remember that technically, the new millennium did not begin until midnight December 31, 2000 with the arrival of the year 2001.
 "There is a theological reason the rabbis collapse their history and lose 163 years during the Persian period. They insist that there were only 490 years between the fall of the First and Second Temples based on how they interpreted the "70 weeks" prophecy of Daniel 9:25-27; a period they maintain ended with the destruction of the Second Temple by the Romans in 70 CE and not with the coming of 'J-sus' as Messiah, as 'Christians' were interpreting it." Dr. Tabor's note.
 "It is worth noting that some mystical Jewish sources still find significance in this 20th century of the 'Christian' era although they accept the year of the world as 5760 based on the standard Jewish calendar. The Zohar predicts that "in the year 600 of the sixth millennia [5600 on the Jewish calendar, or the year 1840] the gates of wisdom from above and below will be opened to [begin] to rectify the world to prepare it to enter into the seventh millennium" (1.117A). "This analogy, comparing a thousand years to a day means that 1999 still 240 years from the seventh millennium on the Jewish calendar is just "hours" before the arrival of the cosmic seventh millennium or Sabbath. Just as pious Jews prepare for the Sabbath each week several hours before sundown, the events of the late 20th century (especially the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 and the Six Day War in 1967) are seen as just such a Sabbath preparation, the "footsteps of the Messiah," as it were. "By such a cosmic measure, 1999 would be equivalent to the Friday afternoon of human history, about five hours before sunset! Ironically, one mystical rabbi of the 15th century, Abraham Azulai, actually ascribed significance to the precise year 5760 (1999 CE!). He reasoned that the measure of the world is the same as the measure of the mikveh (ritual bath), 40 seah. A seah is 144 eggs (these are Talmudic measurements of volume), and 40 times 144 equals 5760. Writes Azulai: "Thus the length of days of this world shall be 5760 years. Then, shall the world be renewed. For as the mikveh purifies the unclean, at this time, the Set-apart One, Blessed Be He, will remove the unclean spirit from the world, but this is only the beginning of the redemption." Dr. Tabor's note.
