What we experience today has absolutely nothing to do with God....Did you know that pestilence (sickness, viruses, diseases) was foretold hundreds of years ago as a sign of the end times? True, in the bible at (Mt 24:3, 21; Lu 21:10, 11, 31, 32), Revelation 6:1-8 pointed to a future time of sword, famine, and “deadly plague.”
So why is this world in such a state, not only with viruses and diseases but also famine, wars and violence?
Let me explain from the bible why...
Most of us know the basic reason why life is this way which is directly due to Adam and Eve's choice to listen to Satan at the start of Mankind's history, but there is much more and the bible explains. When Satan led Adam and Eve into disobeying God, an important question was raised. Satan did not call into question God’s power. Even Satan knows that there is no limit to God’s power. Rather, Satan questioned God’s right to rule. By calling God a liar who withholds good from his subjects, Satan charged that God is a bad ruler. (Genesis 3:2-5) Satan implied that mankind would be better off without God’s rulership. This was an attack on God’s sovereignty, his right to rule.
Additionally, Satan made Eve believe she would be free and independent of God, becoming like God. By this means this wicked spirit creature raised himself higher than God in Eve’s eyes, and Satan became her god, even though Eve, at the time, apparently did not know the identity of the one misleading her. By his action he brought man and woman under his leadership and control, standing up as a rival god in opposition to God.—Ge 3:1-7.
It can it be no wonder our world is in such a state because it's current invisible ruler Satan (1 John 5:19) "We know we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one" This is the very reason why we need our spiritual suit of armour. With billions of angels and all creation watching on, Satan has been allowed to guide mankind under his rulership to settle the issue and that is why this world is in crisis.
But note what the bible says here:
(Revelation 12:9-12) So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. And I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God! . . . . On this account be glad, you heavens and you who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing he has a short period of time.”
This Bible prophesy shows us that time is running out (2 Tim 3:1-5; Matthew 24) for Satan and he knows it. God through his kingdom has made a way out. God didn't have to but he did. At Armageddon, Jesus and his angels will remove Satan and his hoards and throw him in the Abyss then God's Kingdom (Daniel 2:44) with Jesus as King and those who have gone to heaven that "will rule as kings and priests over the earth" (revelation 5:10). Those who are not of the heavenly calling will live on the earth (Ps 37:11,29, Matthew 5:5). It is only going to get worse before it can get better. But these are the promises of the changes that will take place.
The bible says:
Wickedness, warfare, crime, and violence will be gone. “The wicked one will be no more . . . But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth.” (Psalm 37:10, 11)
(Psalm 37:29) The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it.
“The eyes of the blind ones will be opened.”—Isaiah 35:5
“No resident will say: ’I am sick.‘”—Isaiah 33:24
“There will come to be plenty of grain on the earth.”—Psalm 72:16
There will be peace between humans and animals. Wild and domestic animals will feed together. Even a little child will have nothing to fear from animals that are now dangerous.—Isaiah 11:6-9; 65:25.
The whole earth will become a paradise. Lovely new homes and gardens will occupy land that had once been ruined by sinful humans. (Isaiah 65:21-24; Revelation 11:18)
This may make you wonder when will it come to an end?
