This is the face of Hope in Christianity. Hope of Everlasting Life based on forgiveness of Adam’s Sin and Death based on Jesus Perfect Atoning Sacrifice. Which Jesus is real and which one is the imposter? Which Jesus represents God’s Kingdom? Which Jesus represents a Worldwide Counterfeit Religious System? The Devil is in the details you might say. Let’s ask some questions and get the answers from God through His Word the way He intended. How has Satan misled the World? The Bible tells us that he keeps transforming himself into a angel of light.
What does Satan want for every one on Earth? You do not have to look to far to see. God has allowed Satan to draw people out to where they do what ever their hearts really want to. Today by their actions, many act as Satan’s right hand man, by vulgar language, intimidation, threats and violence, both men and women look to abuse, beat , defraud or murder those who are just trying to mind their own business and follow Jesus peaceful example. As people lose all hope, the hope their church teaches, the hope that their government is going to improve their life or the hope that the medical community will find a cure for disease and death, frustration and violence escalates. You can take many things away from people, but when people lose all hope of a better life, they turn to the empty fleshly desires that distract them from their hopeless condition temporarily.
God has allowed everything to take place to answer a question: Is This the Kind of World You Want to Live In?
Jehovah God knew what life would be like today. He foretold world conditions and our feelings and had them recorded in the Bible, that somehow while in the depth of our despair we might read them and raise our faces toward the Heavens and say ”O’ Jehovah Please Help us.” Jehovah has humbled Himself as He holds out His Hand out to us, we in turn must raise our hand out to grasp it figuratively.

Today people depict Satan as appearing as a monster, easily identified red devilish looks. The truth is much different though, Satan is a Living Spirit without a fleshly body. As a spirit, invisible to human eyes, he is able to influence human thought and actions directly or through music, video games, television, movies or family and friends. Satan lives today in the many people who align themselves with Satan’s independent thinking that drew him, Adam, Eve and many other spirits and flesh away from Gods favor. Satan’s desire is to draw every person on Earth away from God through counterfeit organizations which appear to be godly or frustrate people so much that they no longer seek God for help or hope. Jehovah God has let some 20 billion people see just what kind of god Satan would is. We see every day what the world is like with Satan as god. It’s a very Hostile, Violent World. In contrast, Jesus was a very Peaceful person wasn’t he? Shouldn’t those taught by Jesus be peaceful too?
with Satan as god. It’s a very Hostile, Violent World.
“What is God’s desire for humans?“ He gives us insight as stated at Isaiah 48:17,18 which states:
- This is what Jehovah says, your Repurchaser, the Holy One of Israel: “I, Jehovah, am your God, The One teaching you to benefit yourself, The One guiding you in the way you should walk. 18.If only you would pay attention to my commandments! Then your peace would become just like a river And your righteousness like the waves of the sea.
Satan’s is alive. Satan’s attitude and his influence today is expressed through many people who may appear godly. You could put their picture in the frame above, dressed in their religious royal raiment and then examine if what they teach is a listening attitude based on Bible truth or a closed-minded attitude built on lies which developed thousands of years ago in philosophy and superstition and the marriage of god and country worship. The religious leaders of every religion on Earth except the one used by Jehovah God promote at least one lie about God, Jesus, Satan, Life, Death and the Future. Like the pictures above, you must be able to show in the Bible who the real Jesus was and how people are being led astray. These lies add confusion and false hope and a closed-minded attitude towards all religion. This adds to the frustration of people today and promotes an “I don’t want to hear it attitude”. This attitude serves Satan’s desire, namely “keep all he can from turning to the true God Jehovah” thus adding numbers to Satan’s god-ship expressed at 2 Corinthians 4:4. See 1 John 5:19 We know that we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.(Satan)
Let’s consider what Jehovah God wants for us as foretold at Isaiah 48:17.
God’s desire is that we have Peace every day, like a river, without end.
If those living today have to worry about getting sick and dying is that Peaceful? God states His Kingdom will relieve our precarious condition today. Revelation 21:3-5 says “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he 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.” Consider that, never having to worry about dying. Isn’t that Peaceful? Doesn’t that help you draw closer to Jehovah God knowing He wants that for you?
Food Shortages and Escalating Costs take Peace away from our life’s today. What does Jehovah want? What is His attitude toward our plight? Psalms 72:16 foretells “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 Lebʹa·non, And in the cities people will blossom like the vegetation of the earth.” The Earth will once again grow the grains and fruits we want to eat naturally, without cultivation. Yes Jehovah knows what we need and want. Our knowing that about Him comforts us and adds to our daily Peace. Jehovah’s attitude is one that will comfort us day after day just as a river runs to the sea, day after day with no end to Peace of Mind that comes with a full stomach.
What about those loved ones we have lost. How can we enjoy life knowing our friends and family have died? Jehovah wants to comfort every one of us. His attitude towards them is stated many times in the Bible. See John 5:28,29 ” Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” Isn’t that Peaceful knowing Jehovah is offering that Hope to them too? Can you imagine, you with all your family living on a large farm, playing games, learning new things and enjoying each other and traveling and exploring the Earth forever?
Satan told Eve that if she ate of the forbidden fruit she would not die at all,
Many falsehoods are spread about Heaven and Hell, robbing us of Peace now and our Hope for tomorrow. Many believe you will either go to one or the other. This belief is because of something Satan told Eve. Satan told Eve that if she ate of the forbidden fruit she would not die at all, rather she would become like God. Christian churches teach this lie as truth; that you either go to Heaven or Hell when your flesh dies. Jehovah told Adam and Eve the punishment for breaking this one rule of living in the Garden of Eden was death. Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden where they did die. Satan told Eve she would not die, but would live on. Who do You Believe? Satan is Called the Father of the Lie because of this. This is the First Lie recorded in the Bible that we might be able to discern what God really wants for Us. Listen or Read John 8:44 Revelation 12:9 Ecclesiastes 9:5,10
Some believe they are going to Heaven because Jesus told his followers while on Earth that some of them would go to Heaven and Rule in God’s Kingdom with Jesus. They know what it’s like to be imperfect humans, it’s reasonable that Jehovah would want their input on making life the best it can be for us who will live on the Earth under their dominion, but their numbers were limited to 144,000 plus Jesus. Some 20 billion have lived and died since Adam and Eve, where do the rest go?
Consider this logic too: Jehovah created Angels in Heaven to live forever in Heaven without worry of death. In that same reasoning Jehovah created the first man on Earth to live forever on Earth with no worry of death. There were many trees in the Garden of Eden that could be eaten from; Jehovah was not asking too much to leave this one tree alone. Jehovah God has not changed His mind; He still purposes men and women to live in Peace on the Earth forever. In reality Satan’s deflection will only hinder God’s will 7000 years, 6000 have already passed.
What about Wars, Violence and Crime that is Advancing Today? What is Jehovah’s attitude toward this? After God’s Kingdom begins any who want to revert to such things will be removed by God so they won’t harm you or your family. Peace will be everywhere for those who want it. Read Psalms 37:10,11 “Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more; You will look at where they were, And they will not be there.11 But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.” Jehovah will provide you with a Un-ending River of Peace. He wanted this for Adam and Eve. Jehovah wants Peace for all His children, even Satan had this opportunity, yet Satan’s attitude was unsatisfied, Satan wanted all humans to look up to him as god. That wrong attitude led him astray, then into outright opposition to his father, Jehovah.
Would a God that Promotes Peace use 10,000 different Religious Entities and Beliefs? The different teaching by all the religious organizations on Earth today is one way that Satan has blinded the Eyes of the Unbelievers. This takes Peace away from us, knowing that Jehovah wants unending Peace for us means that we must have a learning attitude to protect ourselves. We must use the Bible to learn who Jehovah God is and what His Attitude is toward things we encounter every day. Knowledge of the Bible will protect us from false beliefs about God. Do All Religions Lead to the Same Place? No. 1 Corinthians 14:33 states “For God is a God not of disorder but of peace”. An Almighty God of Peace would teach All His believers the same things Jesus taught while on Earth, in fact Jesus prayed to Jehovah his God and Father to Sanctify His Followers by Truth. John 17:17
What other type of Un-ending Peace has Jehovah Foretold for Us?
Isaiah 65:21 foretells: They will build houses and live in them, And they will plant vineyards and eat their fruitage.
22 They will not build for someone else to inhabit, Nor will they plant for others to eat.
For the days of my people will be like the days of a tree,
And the work of their hands my chosen ones will enjoy to the full.
23 They will not toil for nothing,Nor will they bear children for distress,
Because they are the offspring made up of those blessed by Jehovah,
And their descendants with them.24 Even before they call out, I will answer;
While they are yet speaking, I will hear.25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together,
The lion will eat straw just like the bull, And the serpent’s food will be dust.
They will do no harm nor cause any ruin in all my holy mountain,” says Jehovah.
Jehovah will allot you your own land just as He did for the Nation of Israel as He was teaching them to live a better life. You will not have rent a home or borrow money to finance a home. With your renewed youthful vigor you will build your own family home. There will never be anybody who will try to take it away or throw you out of it. You will live in Peace with your family and all the animals on Earth will greet you peacefully.
As you consider all the Un-Ending Peace that Jehovah God wants for His worshippers you should be able to pick out Who Today Are Acting Peacefully toward Everyone Else. The Apostles and Disciples of Jesus would have never picked up a sword and slaughtered one another or anyone else because Jesus message was one of Humility,Forgiveness, Hope and Peace. His followers would never be terrorists or teach extremist views gathering weapons and supplies for their survival of Armageddon. No, Jesus followers would be doing just as Jesus taught them, carry the Hope of God’s Kingdom to the most distant parts of the Earth. Helping all they can to regain Hope and take in the Knowledge that leads to a Peaceful Eternal Life. As your neighbors, we Hope with all our Hearts that You and Your Family will Enjoy the Real Life God has held out to all of us who want to enjoy the river of Peace that Only Jehovah God can provide.
The pictures above may be hard to tell apart, it’s a person’s beliefs and actions which make them who the really are.
