Science declares that the human race began between 200,000 and 300,000 years ago. However, the Bible states that the first man Adam was created 6000 years ago counting from 1975 C.E. Who do you believe? It depends a lot on who you accept as the “authority” on the subject. Men today and in the past have believed that the Earth is flat. Others believed the Earth was the center of the universe and everything was rotating around it, even though world renowned authorities say different.
A man named Moses states that the only Almighty God inspired Him to write about the beginning of the universe, of unseen events in the spirit realm, of the first man and woman and why we grow old and die. Moses stated at Exodus 3:15 that the Almighty had an eternal personal name of YHWH that many translate to Jehovah in English. Other men added to Moses writings stating that this God said that he would provide a Messiah that would give his sinless life in exchange for the sinless life Adam gave up for sin and death, thus releasing all off Adam’s heirs from slavery to sin. Why should we accept that these men are authorities on what they write about and that they were truthful?
The Bible is full of prophecies, foretold future events, that have all come true. This gives us faith that the all powerful God Jehovah did tell them what was to occur, this also gives us faith that other foretold events will come true. Sometimes the writer related what God inspired him to say, in other places, human dramas foretold future events. One such event was when an aged man and woman miraculously had a son in their old age, the man was 100 and his wife 90, as foretold by an angel. This was the woman’s first child! They raised and loved the boy very much. After he had grown into a man, God told the father, Abraham, to take his only begotten son up a mountain and offer him as a sacrifice to God! This drama was a prophetic parallel to foretell how God would give his first creation, an angelic son, in behalf of sinful mankind. Genesis 22:1-18
Due to the compiled writings through the centuries that added prophecies about the Messiah, men knew approximately when and where the Messiah would appear. The Christ Jesus was born in Bethlehem as the prophecies foretold. He grew up and dedicated his life to God at the age of 29. When he went to be baptized, a public notification that he had privately made this prayerful dedication, God’s invisible force was seen fashioned as a dove descending from the Heavens to Jesus as he came up from the waters and God’s voice was heard to say “This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved.” Matthew 3:13-17. Jesus went through they land inviting men to become his disciples, he taught them many things about Jesus’ God and Father and trained them to go through the countryside by twos telling the people about a future hope for mankind, the Kingdom of God. In a sample prayer, Jesus stated the things that humans should pray for, the first was the sanctification of God’s name Jehovah, second was the Kingdom of God which is the government of God that would cause life on Earth to be structured and governed by God’s principles. Before Jesus was given a spirit body and raised back to Heaven by God, Jesus commanded his disciples to continue in this work of advertising God’s Kingdom.
After Jesus and all his disciples died, the Holy writings were kept hidden by men who taught others what they believed Jesus teachings meant. They kept the Holy writings carefully hidden from the common people. Thus, they could elevate themselves and control the people with false stories about God and His Wrath, reaping great profits from the rich and poor. About the year 1600 C.E. the Holy Writings were translated into the common language. Men arose who disagreed with the doctrines of the centuries old Church and drew away followers for themselves. This has happened over and over again. Who is the authority over this very important subject, the Church of old or anyone of these newcomers?
Neither! Why? Because the Bible itself states the complete and true meaning would not be available until the time of the end. Daniel 12:4 states: “As for you, Daniel, keep the words secret, and seal up the book until the time of the end. Many will rove about, and the true knowledge will become abundant.” Since the late 19th century many Bible truths have been found because of the exhaustive efforts of the first group of International Bible Students Association. They found that Churches were wrongly teaching that people have a second life living inside them called a soul. They were teaching that the soul never dies and when the flesh dies, an inner person either goes to a burning hot place where God punishes them forever or they become an angel with Jesus in Heaven. All of this is proven by Bible texts to be erroneous. The place of torment: Hades, Hell or Sheol is the common grave of mankind. For the Bible teaches at Ecclesiastes 9:5&10 that the dead are conscious of nothing at all, no thoughts or feelings. So how could God torment you? Too, Romans 6:7 states: “For the one who has died has been acquitted from his sin.” So, if all your sins are forgiven, why would God torment you?
The group who were discovering all these new facts about the Bible also learned that the Kingdom of God is a real government with Kings and Priests who will soon educate the living how to live forever in perfect health forever. Revelation 21:3-5 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.”5 And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new.” Also he says: “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” This is the Hope that Jesus taught his disciples to go door to door teaching the people that this life is not all there is. Like Daniel who died over 2500 years ago, was promised he would stand up for his lot at the end of the days,(the days alienated from God) the dead will be resurrected and taught these facts and given opportunity to live as God’s friend or be lifeless & thoughtless for all eternity. Daniel 12:13 “But as for you, go on to the end. You will rest, but you will stand up for your lot at the end of the days.”
In this year or 2020 C.E. there is only one group of people who have preached the Kingdom Good News in all the inhabited Earth as a witness to all the nations. SEE Mtt.24:14. They have made the name of God known in all the Earth and are proud to wear that divine name when they go preaching the Kingdom of God has drawn near. They are Jehovah’s Witnesses. They are the only religion on Earth that is recognized by the Almighty God Jehovah. At Isaiah 43:10 it states “You are my witnesses,” declares Jehovah, “Yes, my servant whom I have chosen, So that you may know and have faith in me And understand that I am the same One. Before me no God was formed, And after me there has been none. Today there is only one authority on the Bible and the sacred truth it contains, every other religion and every other offshoot of the first Christian Church is part of a global apostasy which was also foretold, leading mankind to false hopes and preventing them from laying hold of the hope of everlasting life on an Edenic Earth as God’s purpose is fulfilled. Acts 3:21 states Heaven must hold this one within itself until the times of restoration of all things of which God spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets of old.
ONLY ONE RELIGION HAS BEEN SEEN DOING THE EXPRESSED WILL OF GOD SEEN AT MATTHEW 24:14 And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. and MARK 13:10 Also, in all the nations, the good news has to be preached first.
Jehovah’s Witnesses are known to people on every continent as a people who really know their Bible! You can taste many of the Bibles Truths of Life today and of the life for all who live in the divinely backed Kingdom of God which could begin in the next weeks as the Divine Seat of Judgment removes the last President, Dictator, King and every other human ruler on that day. See Daniel 7:26 But the Court sat, and they took away his rulership, in order to annihilate him and to destroy him completely.27 “‘And the kingdom and the rulership and the grandeur of the kingdoms under all the heavens were given to the people who are the holy ones of the Supreme One. Their kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all rulerships will serve and obey them.’
Read about the image which foretold the order of World Powers from Daniel’s Day until now at Daniel chapter 2: 27 Daniel replied to the king: “None of the wise men, conjurers, magic-practicing priests, or astrologers are able to tell the king the secret that he is asking.28 But there is a God in the heavens who is a Revealer of secrets, and he has made known to King Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar what is to happen in the final part of the days. This is your dream, and these are the visions of your head as you lay on your bed:29 “As for you, O king, on your bed your thoughts turned to what is to take place in the future, and the Revealer of secrets has made known to you what is to happen.30 As for me, this secret was not revealed to me because I have greater wisdom than anyone living; rather, it was to make the interpretation known to the king so that you may know the thoughts in your heart.31 “You, O king, were watching, and you saw an immense image. That image, which was huge and extremely bright, was standing in front of you, and its appearance was terrifying.32 The head of that image was of fine gold, its chest and its arms were of silver, its abdomen and its thighs were of copper,33 its legs were of iron, and its feet were partly of iron and partly of clay.34 You looked on until a stone was cut out, not by hands, and it struck the image on its feet of iron and of clay and crushed them.35 At that time the iron, the clay, the copper, the silver, and the gold were, all together, crushed and became like the chaff from the summer threshing floor, and the wind carried them away so that not a trace of them could be found. But the stone that struck the image became a large mountain, and it filled the whole earth.36 “This is the dream, and we will now tell the king its interpretation.37 You, O king—the king of kings to whom the God of heaven has given the kingdom, the might, the strength, and the glory,38 and into whose hand he has given men wherever they may dwell, as well as the beasts of the field and the birds of the heavens, and whom he has made ruler over all of them—you yourself are the head of gold.39 “But after you another kingdom will rise, inferior to you; then another kingdom, a third one, of copper, that will rule over the whole earth.40 “As for the fourth kingdom, it will be strong like iron. For just as iron crushes and pulverizes everything else, yes, like iron that shatters, it will crush and shatter all of these.41 “And just as you saw the feet and the toes to be partly of clay of a potter and partly of iron, the kingdom will be divided, but some of the hardness of iron will be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with soft clay.42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom will be partly strong and partly fragile.43 Just as you saw iron mixed with soft clay, they will be mixed with the people; but they will not stick together, one to the other, just as iron does not mix with clay.44 “In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever,45 just as you saw that out of the mountain a stone was cut not by hands, and that it crushed the iron, the copper, the clay, the silver, and the gold. The Grand God has made known to the king what will happen in the future. The dream is true, and its interpretation is trustworthy.”
Notice that the Kingdom of God is as a stone, cut from Jehovah’s Universal Sovereignty, (an administration of God given to Jesus and 144,000 others) which crushes the governments of mankind at a time of distress when people are no longer in agreement as foretold in verse 43. Every living adult on Earth needs to educate themselves of what the Bible foretells could begin at any time! Remember what is stated at Hebrews 6:16 For men swear by someone greater, and their oath is the end of every dispute, since it is a legal guarantee to them.17 In this same way, when God decided to demonstrate more clearly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath,18 in order that through two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to the refuge may have strong encouragement to take firm hold of the hope set before us.19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, both sure and firm, and it enters in within the curtain,20 where a forerunner has entered in our behalf, Jesus, who has become a high priest in the manner of Mel·chizʹe·dek forever.
