Two New Worlds

There’s a new world that’s here already and yet another new world in the offing. 

Today

The first is a very ugly world, one that is a stepping stone to an even uglier and more horrible world.  It is a world in which the God that created all things is denied and the most godless and wicked people rule over everyone and everything. 

This new world order began to take shape long ago but last year it took a very visible downward step.  It saw the introduction in this country of totally unnecessary restrictions, regulations and laws.  The ostensible purpose of all this was to control a virus that in previous years was merely permitted to run its course.  It was for most people merely an inconvenience with a death toll less than one in ten million or so.  These being primarily aged persons, many already in nursing homes. 

This false alarm was the kickoff of a program intended to lead to the destruction of the existing but already compromised U.S. Constitution and the liberties it provides. If it prevails, it will lead to first a socialist and then a communist totalitarian regime ruled by an extremely wealthy few.  This program, in process today, has resulted in a stolen presidential election and an unelected President is now in office.  All this is just the beginning of a process that, if fully successful, will lead to some form of totalitarian government.

How, we ask, did this happen?  How did a few become so powerful that they were able to steal an election and effectively take over this once great and free nation?  What did we do or fail to do that made it possible?  Benjamin Franklin foresaw and provided the answer to this question when he was asked ‘what did you give us.’  He said: ‘a republic if you can keep it.’

Well, we kept it quite a while, over two centuries but didn’t hold on to what was needed to retain it permanently.  The missing ingredient was self-government which is impossible without God.  Our earlier citizens were governed first of all by God and God’s Law and they could live peaceably with one another.  Evil, though still among us, was under control and had limited strength. 

More recently, many of God’s people have been carried away by a false story.  They believe a lie, a lie that says God changed His mind and would no longer wait for the entire world to become born-again Christians before Jesus’ return.  This ridiculous notion, that God changed His mind, was one of many lies in the Scofield Bible, a book that turned the Christian world on its head.  The Great Commission was reduced from saving the entire world to saving just a few.  God’s Law, the Ten Commandments, was reduced to God’s suggestions that were seen as optional for true believers.  This even after Jesus said:

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.  18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.  19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  (Matthew 5:17-19)

We see here the importance Jesus places on the Ten Commandments.  We see also their great and lasting durability.

This diversion from God’s command to work toward making this world a Christian world has resulted in a tremendous rise of Satan’s power.  His people now control a great majority of the world’s wealth and are able to make the kind of sweeping changes we see today. 

We are now beginning to see some of the early consequences of our disobedience.  A once God-fearing and God-obeying country has turned its back to God and is entering into Satan’s evil grip.  This condition will continue to worsen until God’s people wake up and get back to obeying His Greay Commission.  Some are beginning to see that they have been deceived but more are needed to reverse this evil trend. 

Tomorrow

The second world is in many respects just the opposite of the first.  It is a world in which everyone lives in peace with everyone else.  It is a world in which the true God is worshipped and His law is obeyed.  It is a world in which the highest level of government is the ecclesia community.  These communities, consisting of 10-12 or so families, live by God’s Law.  As more and more such communities are formed and begin to cover the earth, the world changes.  The existing higher levels of government, federal state and eventually even the local, become less and less necessary and gradually fade away. 

This world will one day be populated entirely by born-again Christian families.  All unbelievers will either have been converted or died off.  This is the future God’s people can look forward to as they become more and more obedient to His directions.  They will grow in closer and closer conformity to God’s requirements and eventually be taken to Heaven.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

(1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17)

 The dead in Christ will rise first, followed by those that are alive.  They will rise in new and greatly transformed body’s (1 Corinthians 15: 35-56).  They will be taken to Heaven and be with the Lord forever ().
