Will our world . . .
stay the same?
WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
“God . . . will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”—Revelation 21:3, 4, New World Translation.
WHAT THAT CAN MEAN FOR YOU
Meaningful and satisfying work.—Isaiah 65:21-23.
No more sickness or suffering of any kind.—Isaiah 25:8; 33:24.
A happy, unending life with family and friends.—Psalm 37:11, 29.
CAN WE REALLY BELIEVE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS?
Yes, for at least two reasons:
God has the ability to fulfill the promise. In the Bible, Jehovah God alone is called “the Almighty,” for he has unlimited power. (Revelation 15:3) So he is fully able to keep his promise to change our world for the better. As the Bible says, “with God all things are possible.”—Matthew 19:26.
God has the desire to fulfill the promise. For example, Jehovah has a longing to restore life to people who have died.—Job 14:14, 15.
The Bible also shows that God’s Son, Jesus, healed the sick. Why did he do so? Because he wanted to. (Mark 1:40, 41) Jesus perfectly reflected his Father’s personality by his desire to help those in need.—John 14:9.
So we can be sure that both Jehovah and Jesus want to help us to enjoy a happy future!—Psalm 72:12-14; 145:16; 2 Peter 3:9.
TO THINK ABOUT
How will God change our world for the better?
The Bible answers that question at MATTHEW 6:9, 10 and DANIEL 2:44.
