Do you want to better your circumstances? Do you have a real hope your life will get better? No matter what your circumstances are today you can improve them, the secret is in knowing how. Knowledge is used by many to raise themselves above the common people . Some gain knowledge of the medical fields, others the Stock Market, others Geography. For instance there are Hidden Treasures of Gold and Silver in Egypt, they may be worth billions of dollars, and knowledge about them could greatly change your circumstances for the future in the short term. Daniel 11:43. There is knowledge that can do much more for you than this though. The Bible has information in it that is easy to understand that will improve your circumstances in a big way. Before we go to the Greater Egypt lets consider a few facts we’ll have to know.
Knowledge can liberate or enslave. In Egypt we will have to know our map and be able to trust it’s information whole heartily, even with our lives. There are many maps that have many mistakes on them, the unwary have been lead astray by them and are lost. The mistakes were made by men who claimed they were map makers but the maps prove otherwise. The Bible and it’s Understanding is much the same way, the Bible is accurate, its the guides who have made the mistakes. For instance many have been taught traditions and beliefs that are not in the Bible, these traditions may enslave them to unscriptural beliefs, making it harder to accept anything else. Some of these misconceptions are about the condition of the dead or what happens after death. Others believe we all either go to Heaven or Hell at death. Who decides which is Truth? To establish this we must accept this truth: The Bible was Inspired by One Individual, God. His thoughts are in the Bible’s pages from start to finish. The Bible is the Highest Authority. God states He cannot Lie. He is Always Just and Truthful. His Inspired word must always be the Truth. 2 Timothy 3:16 “All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work..”
Who is God?
Jehovah’s Witnesses have been blessed with a knowledge that unites them around the world. This uniting knowledge has brought them all into a relationship with God. Jesus, on the night before his death, prayed to his Father, Jehovah, that his followers would continue to take in this knowledge at John 17:3 he prayed: “This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God…..” When someone tells you about someone else, one key detail they give you is the person’s name. The Bible does that more than 7000 times, however men have tried to bury that name with titles such as GOD and LORD. In better Bible translations the name is recorded many times, open yours to Psalms 83:18. It should read real close to this: “May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth.” This knowledge can lead you to the greatest treasures of eternity. If you address your prayers to Him, using His Divine Name, Jehovah, asking the things you do in Jesus name you are assured to have those things that are in harmony with His Will.
What is God’s Will?
From the very beginning verses of the Bible we learn what that is. After God created the Heavens and the Earth, He created all types of plants and trees that would yield edible fruits good for food. He created many types of Life then Adam and Eve, He told them their commission at Genesis 1:26-28. After this a rebellion began in Heaven and on Earth, this has not changed the will of Jehovah to have a groomed planet where Adam and Eve’s offspring can enjoy the best life that human beings can enjoy. Isaiah 48:17,18
What is tangible of the Hope given Jehovah’s Witnesses? Have you ever enjoyed a memorable meal? What was memorable? Was it the taste of the food, were there Spices or Sauces that gave you that So Good Feeling. Were there Great Desserts? Like Sweet, Juicy Watermelon or Ice Cream with Chocolate and Nuts. Jehovah God promises we will enjoy plenty of the finest Earth can produce! In fact He states He will Bless the Earth. Psalms 72:16 states “There will be an abundance of grain on the earth; On the top of the mountains it will overflow. His fruit will flourish as in Lebanon, And in the cities people will blossom like the vegetation of the earth” Again at Psalms 145:16 “You open your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing” Has this happened? No, it’s prophesy, a promise from God of what will occur, in this case, for the people who are God’s favored people living in the near future.
God has promised to bring about Peace to every part of the Earth, There will be no crime, no police, no oppressive work, no bills. He promises to take away all the things that bring about sorrow and pain of heart. This is seen at Revelation 21:3-5. Has God made any other promises? Yes He Has. He has promised to give them land to grow their own food and build their own homes and families at Isaiah 65:17-21. Micah 4:4 , Psalms 67:6 , Revelation 11:18
What else is God’s Will?
There are many today who are blind, deaf or lame. Many are handicapped physically or mentally. Some are ill with debilitating diseases. God’s will is that everyone alive then will be whole, as Jesus was when he walked the countryside of Israel. The next verses promise that. Isaiah 33:24 , Isaiah 35:5,6 . Jesus gave a preview of how easy it is for God to do this and highlighted that this is God’s Will at Matthew 9:35 , Mark 1:40-42 , John 5:5-9 .
Have you ever loved someone very much, then they passed away in death? Jehovah has promised to bring billions of people back to life in a resurrection! Daniel 12:2 , Acts 24:15 . Jesus showed how this can be done and will be in the near future by resurrecting a widow’s only son at Luke 7:11-17 . Jesus also used God’s Holy Spirit to resurrect his friend Lazarus at John 11:1-44 .
With Knowledge Comes Power
The Bible states that Jesus was able to endure the sufferings he went through because of the Promises Jehovah had made to Him. It relates this at Hebrew 12:2. Jehovah promised Jesus that He would sit at God’s Right Hand, and he would be King of God’s Kingdom and that Jesus would be given Immortality. Many eyewitnesses have testified to the fact that Jesus was resurrected to Heaven in 33 C.E.
This knowledge of what Jehovah has promised us for the future has enabled millions to face their addictions. The strong desire to please God and better their lives empowers them. With every ounce of effort a person puts forth, coupled with prayer, God matches their strength with His Holy Spirit. “…With God all things are possible.”
Jesus foretold many events that would occur on Earth as a result of his being given Kingly authority at Matthew 24 and Mark 13. We see these things happening today like no other time in history. One facet of these events is recorded at Matthew 24:14. Billions of people alive today are witnesses of this event as Jehovah’s Witnesses walk their neighborhoods and knock on their doors preaching and teaching to those listening how the Kingdom of God will change their life. No other religion on Earth has accomplished such a great work, because it is God’s Will that all hear the message of Hope and Warning of what will occur. When Jehovah is satisfied that every right hearted person has been given ample warning the verse states “then the End will come.”
When Will These Things Be?
Soon! Remember what happened after God created Adam and Eve, a rebellion broke out, the pages of the Bible explain “How God will End the Rebellion and Restore Human Beings to His Favor.” We are in the Final Day’s of the Rebellion. The Bible gives information on how to tell that statement is true. The Bible is like a Map to the Greatest Treasure you can ever acquire, LIFE, I invite you to Learn “How this Knowledge can affect your circumstances Today and Enrich You Forever” by continuing to spend a few minutes every day reading about God’s Promises to You from His Inspired Map, the Bible, along with this trusted guide “ What Can the Bible Teach Us?”
