(Tiyago 4:14) Tsono, Yahova ambadziwa bzomwe bzin’dzacitika kutsogolo. (Zaiya 46:10) Kale-kalero Fala lace Bibliya, lidaleweratu sikuti kokha bzinthu bzakuipa bzomwe bzinkucitika nsiku zathu zino koma bzinthu bzabwino bzomwe bzin’dzacitikambo patsogolopa.

4 Mu msolo wapitayu wa bukhu lino udafotokoza kuti Jezu Kristu adakhala Mambo kudzulu mu gole la 1914. (Werengani Danyeri 7:13, 14.) Atandopasidwa mphanvu za Umambo iye adayamba kucita basa. Bibliya limbalewa kuti ‘kudacitika nkhondo kudzulu. Migeli [dzina linango la Jezu] na wanjo wace akhamenyana na cinyoka, [Sathani Dyabu] ndipo cinyokaco na wanjo wace cikhacita nkhondo.’ * Sathani na wanjo wace wakuipa madimonyo adaluza nkhondoyo ndipo adathusidwa kucoka kudzulu mpaka pa dziko la pansi. Wanjo wauzimu wakukhulupirika wa Mulungu wadakondwa na kuthothedwa kumweku kwa Sathani na madimonyo yace. Koma wanthu alibe kukhala na cikondwesoco.

Ninga momwe tin’dzawonera, ifepano tinkukhala nthawe imweyi ya mabvuto. Koma bzimwebzi bzin’citika mu ‘kanthawe kakucepa’ basi. Napo Sathani akudziwa bzimwebzi.

Bwerani tiwone bzinthu bzinango bzomwe Bibliya lidaleweratu kuti bzin’dzacitika nthawe yathu ino. Bzimwebzi bzinkulatiza kuti tinkukhala mu nsiku zakumalizira ndipo Umambo bwa Mulungu bun’dzabweresa bzisimbo bzakusaya kumala kwa wale womwe ambafuna Yahova. Cakutoma, bwerani tiwone bzinthu bzinai bzomwe Jezu adalewa kuti bzin’dzakhala cizindikiro cakulatiza nthawe yomwe tin’kukhala.

Katswiri winango wakunemba nkhani ku Grã-Bretanha adanemba kuti: “Mu magole ya m’ma 1900 wanthu azinji adaphedwa pa nkhondo. . . .

Napo timbadziwa kuwawidwa komwe munthu ambakhala nako akafedwa munthu m’bodzi omwe ambamufuna pa nkhondo, mungakumbukire kuwawidwa komwe wanthu bzulu na bzulu ambabva, pomwe wadzinza wawo wambaphedwa pa nkhondo.

Bziteke-tekebzi bzimbakhala bzamphanvu mwakuti bzimbagwesa nyumba na kung’amba pansi. Ndipo gole liri-lense pambacitika bziteke-teke  bzamphanvu bzomwe bzimbadzongeratu nyumba za wanthu. Nkhani zakunembedwa zimbalatiza kuti bziteke-teke bzapha wanthu wakupitirira 2.000.000 kuyambira mu 1.900. Nkhani inango idati: “Kuyenda patsogolo kwa siyensiya kwandocepesa pang’ono mulewengo wa kufa kwa wanthu.”

Relatoriyo inango idalewa kuti matenda 20 yakudziwika bwino, kuphatanidza cifuwa ca befu, malaria, na kolera, yakhala matenda yakucitika kawiri-kawiri m’magole yatsapanopaya, ndipo mitundu minango ya matenda imbanesa kupola napo mankhwala yace yalipo. Kuthumizira bzimwebzi pana matenda 30 yatsapano. Yanango mwa matendaya njakudziwika lini ndipo njakupha.

Jezu adacenjeza kuti: ‘Ninga momwe bzidacitikira mu nsiku za Nowe zire, ndimo momwe bzin’dzakhalira pa kukhala kwa Mwana wa munthu.  Pa nsiku zomwe Cigumula ca madzi cikhanati kucitika, wanthu wakhadya, wakhamwa; amuna wakhalowola, akazi wakhalowodwa, mpaka pa nsiku yomwe Nowe adapita m’cingalawa cire.
