My sons, why doesn’t God do something?The pandemic is killing millions, Global warming is oncourse to cause millions of animals and people to be displaced and die. The world has become a more hostile place with growing disrespect for any authority other than their own. Wicked people have advanced from bad to worse in the atrocities being committed . Have we not seen all the facets of the Last Days as described by God’s inspiration in these verses? Mtt.24:7-14, Mark 13:1-20, Luke 21:10-28, 2:Tim.3:1-5, 13. So whats next?
We know 2 prophecies must be fulfilled before the End can come, the Good News about God’s Kingdom Government must be preached in all the inhabited Earth and those 144,000 humans who God’s chooses to be Kings and Priests in Heaven with Jesus must live faithfull lives until death or until they are sealed by God as faithful. Are we waiting on the last person anointed to serve in Heaven to be sealed in integrity? Re.7:3 Are we waiting on the Good News of God’s Kingdom to be preached in all the inhabited Earth to God’s satisfaction? Mtt.24:14, Mrk.13:10.
This is the basis of our faith, we see God in creation, in the thousands of measurements and properties that make gravity, air, water, vegetation and life possible on Earth alone at this time. We see His intelligence, wisdom and love in the great variety of animal and plant life that we wonder at, see as beautiful and enjoy watching over and over again. We see His wisdom in the water cycle and plant photosynthesis. We note His order in the smallest of ways, in the orbits in atoms that are similar to larger objects in space.
We see His truth, in that He appointed man over all the animals, no imagined evolution of animals has come near to disproving this statement: Then God said: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every creeping animal that is moving on the earth. Genesis 1:26.
Man is the only flesh that is able to reason out complicated equations and then build on previous knowledge, from tying a stone to a stick, which is beyond animals, to great catapults and pile drivers. Animals are instinctively wise, like a beaver can build a great dam, however they will never evolve to build skyscrapers. God had to reason out in His mind all the equations that make each plant, bird, marine, reptile, amphibious and human life reality on a self sufficient planet with atmosphere and gravity, soaring around a sun at 66,000 miles per hour with a nearby orbiting moon in tow, in unison with other planets and objects orbiting that same sun at different speeds and orbits, in harmonious movement with the __trillions of other bodies in the universe.
Too, we have knowledge of the prophecies in the Bible and their fulfillment, by this we know He exist and He inspired 40 men to express His message to us in their own words with growing harmony of theme and purpose. Through Bible study and meditation on the things read, our faith is strengthened, that we see the unseen and hear the unspoken, a word behind us saying this is the way. See Isa.30:21. By our knowledge we see God and understand His purpose to enjoy a relationship with you and me and His human friends for all eternity as He sustains us and removes the effects of Adamic sin and death. John 17:3 states: This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.
What is God doing today?
We know a Great Day will separate this world under man’s rule from Jesus’ rule and God’s blessings, but when will that “Day” begin? The Bible states two things must be accomplished and then the end will come. 1: the Good News of God’s Kingdom must be preached in all the inhabited Earth. 2: the 144,000 humans God chooses to serve in Heaven with Jesus as kings and priest must be vetted as to their love and integrity towards God’s principles. Re.7:3,4
God’s works are seen in Revelation 14:6 states: And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, and he had everlasting good news to declare to those who dwell on the earth, to every nation and tribe and tongue and people
We see that Jehovah’s Witnesses have preached God’s Kingdom and what it is and what it will mean for us throughout the Earth for over 140 years, in an ever increasing number of languages. The Bible states this will be the last facet fulfilled before the Great Day. Mtt.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.
However, never before have they been able to reach an entire generation! We see God’s principle of justice in His trying to reach every person on Earth before that Day begins, even if they all hate Him because of His name or due to the actions of the churches, their commercial activity, their wars and immorality, seeking a man to rule over them, while claiming to be “Christians” or Christ-like, in these they are bringing reproach on God and His Son. God is just by giving every person on Earth the opportunity to know Him, His qualities, His purpose for human life on a paradisaic like Earth, His approved way of worship and His love and peace seen among His worshipers. We are obligated by that love to speak about this to as many as possible until the door is shut by God.
Does the Bible hide a key to knowing the Day that Jesus said God only knew? Can a man reason the beginning date out with increased knowledge? Not likely, God opens the minds of people to know Him and His purpose at His appointed time. I, like many others have seen events on Earth and thought this must be it, but it did not develop. This does not mean it will not occur, it means I was mistaken. We do not have anyway to know how many of the 144,000 have been sealed. However it has been almost 2000 years since the man Jesus was resurrected as a spirit, he was the first, so we can conclude the number will coincide with the completion of the preaching work in God’s eyes.
What We Should Be Doing?
Our goal should be to live with eager expectation for the change that God’s Government will bring, keeping that day in mind constantly, as if it were to occur in the next months, until it does occur, it will not be late! That Day will cleanse all reproach from the divine name, He will show He had one group of obedient worshipers that were separate from the religions and churches that have expressed a wrong definition of God and His Love, He has loved every person as one of His creation, however He must remove every person not choosing to live within His Way for lasting peace to be possible for those who do.
He has chosen to be known by for all eternity by the divine name expressed in modern Bibles as YHWH some 7000 times, we should have no reason for not calling Him by that name commonly pronounced Jehovah in English. Can a person have a relationship for all eternity with someone and never call them by name? See Ex.3:15, Ez.38:23, Joel 2:32, Hab.3:16
Our goal must be to keep seeking, keep searching, keep hoping that Jehovah tells the angelic hordes to go subduing in the midst of His enemies in the very near future, for in an hour we think not to be it, change will suddenly occur. See Ps.2, Mtt.13:36-43 Have full confidence my sons that there will be survivors of this world into a new system. They will be the foundation of the New Earth with everlasting sinless, painless, peaceful life held out to them as seen in these verses:
Daniel 12:1 “During that time Michael(Jesus) will stand up, the great prince who is standing in behalf of your people. And there will occur a time of distress such as has not occurred since there came to be a nation until that time. And during that time your people will escape, everyone who is found written down in the book.
Re. 7:14 So right away I said to him: “My lord, you are the one who knows.” And he said to me: “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Keep Seeking it, Keep Searching for it, Keep Hoping in it, for whether you live through it or die before it occurs, you will enjoy all that God has promised. Just as God comforted the aged man Daniel in verse 12:2 And many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up, some to everlasting life and others to reproach and to everlasting contempt. and in verse 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.”
At Re.21:3-5 we read: 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.”
So Why Doesn’t God Do Something? As we can see, He continues to share the Good News that this world’s way of life will suddenly end and a righteous, peaceful, painless, happy life with Jesus as God’s Appointed King will be begin just as the sun rises in the morning of a new day. Learning what God has promised is changing lives and building friendships with people around the Earth. Let us exhort all we can in the limited time left to take in this information and much more from JW.org There are no variation in #truth
Let us remember this fact: What God has promised, He must fulfill as He states at Isaiah 55:10 For just as the rain and the snow pour down from heaven And do not return there until they saturate the earth, making it produce and sprout, Giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,11 So my word that goes out of my mouth will be. It will not return to me without results, But it will certainly accomplish whatever is my delight, And it will have sure success in what I send it to do. Jehovah.
