Who Really Controls the World?

Who Really Controls the World?

Do you think it is . . .

  • God?

  • humankind?

  • someone else?

 WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

“The Evil One controls the whole world.”1 John 5:19.

“The Son of God came . . . to destroy the devil’s work.”1 John 3:8, New Century Version.

WHAT THAT CAN MEAN FOR YOU

Logical explanations for the world’s problems.Revelation 12:12.

Reason to believe that our world will change for the better.1 John 2:17.

 CAN WE REALLY BELIEVE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS?

Yes, for at least three reasons:

  • Satan’s rulership is doomed. Jehovah is determined to bring Satan’s control over mankind to an end. He promises to “bring to nothing . . . the Devil” and undo all the damage that Satan has caused.Hebrews 2:14, New World Translation.

  • God has chosen Jesus Christ to rule the world. Jesus is the complete opposite of this world’s present cruel, selfish ruler. Concerning Jesus’ kingship, God promises: “He will have pity on the lowly and the poor . . . From oppression and from violence he will rescue them.”Psalm 72:13, 14.

  • God cannot lie. The Bible plainly states: “It is impossible for God to lie.” (Hebrews 6:18) When Jehovah promises to do something, it is as good as done! (Isaiah 55:10, 11) “The ruler of this world will be cast out.”John 12:31.

 TO THINK ABOUT

What will the world be like after its ruler is removed?

The Bible answers that question at PSALM 37:10, 11 and REVELATION 21:3, 4.
