Peace on Earth—How Will It Come?

The Bible’s answer

Peace on earth will come, not by human efforts, but by means of God’s Kingdom, a heavenly government ruled by Christ Jesus. Notice how the Bible teaches us about this wonderful hope.
  1. God will make “wars to cease to the extremity of the earth,” fulfilling his promise to bring “peace on earth to those with whom he is pleased!”—Psalm 46:9; Luke 2:14Good News Translation.
  2. God’s Kingdom will rule from heaven over the entire earth. (Daniel 7:14) As a world government, it will eliminate nationalism, which is at the root of many conflicts.
  3. Jesus, the Ruler of God’s Kingdom, is called the “Prince of Peace,” and he will ensure that “to peace there will be no end.”—Isaiah 9:6, 7.
  4. People determined to keep fighting will not be allowed to live under the Kingdom, since “anyone loving violence [God’s] soul certainly hates.”—Psalm 11:5; Proverbs 2:22.
  5. God teaches his subjects how to live in peace. Describing the results of this instruction, the Bible says: “They will have to beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war anymore.”—Isaiah 2:3, 4.
Already, millions of Jehovah’s Witnesses around the world are learning from God how to be peaceable. (Matthew 5:9) Although we belong to many different ethnic groups and live in over 230 different lands, we refuse to take up arms against our fellow man.

World Peace—Why So Elusive?


M

The Bible’s answer

Human efforts to bring world peace have failed and will continue to fail for several reasons:
  • It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step.” (Jeremiah 10:23) Humans weren’t created with the ability or the right to rule themselves, so they won’t be able to achieve enduring peace.
  • Don’t put your trust in human leaders; no human being can save you. When they die, they return to the dust; on that day all their plans come to an end.” (Psalm 146:3, 4Good News Translation) Government leaders, even those with the best motives, can’t devise lasting solutions for the root causes of war.
  • In the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. For men will be . . . fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride.” (2 Timothy 3:1–4) We live in “the last days” of the present wicked world, a time when prevailing attitudes make peace difficult.
  • 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.” (Revelation 12:12) The Devil, God’s enemy, has been confined to the vicinity of the earth and motivates people to adopt his vicious spirit. As long as he is “the ruler of this world,” we can never live in peace.—John 12:31.
  • [God’s Kingdom] will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms [that oppose God], and it itself will stand to times indefinite.” (Daniel 2:44) God’s Kingdom, not any human government, will satisfy our desire for permanent world peace.—Psalm 145:16.

DOES GOD REALLY CARE ABOUT US ?

   In a world filled with so many troubles and suffering, millions wonder if there exist a God.and if there is,is he really interested in humans? Does he really care about us?
 Where can well find satisfying answer to such question? If you turn to libraries or bookstores, you might find thousands of books claiming to provide the answer.but often time though, one book contradicts the another. Others seem to be valid at the moment but soon become outdated and need to be revised or replace.
  However, there is one book that contains reliable answer to the question. It is a book of truth. Jesus Christ said in prayer to God: "Your word is truth" (John 17:17) today we know that word to be the Holy Bible.
  DOES GOD REALLY CARE ABOUT US?
  Why The Question Ariese: we live in a world full of cruelty and injustice. Many religions teach that the sufferings we experience are God's will for human.
  What The Bible Teaches: God never causes what is wickrd. "It is unthinkable for the true God to act wickedly, for the Almighty to do wrong" says job 34:10. God has a loving purpose for humans. That is why Jesus taught us to pray: Our Father in the heavens, let...your kingdom come.let your will take place,as in heaven, also on earth. (Matthew 6:9,10) God cares so deeply about us that he has gone to a great lengths to make the fulfillment of his purpose a certainty. -John 3:16.
See also Genesis 1:26-28, James 1:13; and 1peter 5:6,7.
