In all major religions there is a belief in a Creator who loves us as his own children. An eternal paradise is guaranteed to those that live a righteous, loving life, assisting those in need. This God is the real ‘Higher Power.’ This God is Earth’s only Hope. He will bring those that trust in Him through the fiery trials that are increasing in myriads of ways across our planet.
Our world is facing threats and perils now that no other people ever have. Human extinction is even being discussed! Judaism, Islam, and Christian holy texts all agree that mankind will experience these things just before the Creator comes down from heaven and saves us. He will end all wars, heal our earth, and bring justice and liberty to all.
Many such prophetic promises are made throughout the Bible. “When all around the earth there is darkness, suddenly there will appear a great light… and people will rejoice!”– We are promised that the He will dwell among us. His government will bring world peace that will never end. And we are assured that on this wonderful day when our Savior comes, we will sing, “I praise you, O Lord! For great is the Holy One who lives among us. – This one and only God of Creation will live among us and rule the earth, “The government will rest on His shoulders; and He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace… and He will rule for all eternity.” (Isaiah 9)
For those of us that love animals and nature His return and rule will be a delight: “In that day the wolf and the lamb, the leopard and the baby goat, the calf and the fawn, will be safe with the lion, and a little child will lead them all.” (Isaiah 11)
The immense damage that mankind has done to the earth and our environment will also be corrected and made whole again. “Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God… On each side of the river grew a tree of life… whose leaves were used for the healing of the nations.” (Revelation 22)
A new and better world is coming! “Look! God’s home is now among his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” (Revelation 21)
Heaven’s Holy One will return to earth when all seems lost and rescue the world from destruction. – So, amid the torrent of bad news and frightening possibilities in our times, take HOPE!
Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will be permitted to enter the gates of my city and to eat from the tree of life. And so, “Come. Let anyone who is thirsty come… Let anyone who wishes, to drink from water of life.” (Revelation 22)
“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? (John 14)
