At Jesus' birth, the angels proclaimed “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” (Luke 2:14)
- Since Jesus' victory over death through his resurrection, where is the “peace on earth”?
- Why does mankind continue to suffer from poverty, oppression, war and injustice?
- Why do Jesus’ followers often suffer, even when petitioning God in prayer for healing or rescue from misfortune?
- Why does God continue to permit evil and human suffering?
Jesus taught us to pray “Thy kingdom come.” God made a beautiful promise in Revelation 21:3-4, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
- When will God’s kingdom finally come?
- When will the promised peace, health and joy finally be fulfilled?
- What was the purpose of Jesus having to suffer and die?
- How and when will this help in God keeping His promises?
You are invited to join our internet broadcast entitled, “Why Did Jesus have to Suffer and Die?” The Bible answers all of these important questions!
A Nighttime of Sin...to End in a Joyful Morning!
God has a just and loving plan for all mankind which has been unfolding throughout our history. Understanding this progress of events through the ages of time helps us appreciate the beautiful harmony of the Bible. The dark night of sin now engulfing man will never be forgotten.
Soon, Messiah as the "Sun of Righteousness" will arise with healing and blessing. The dreadful night of pain, sickness and death will end. The joy of morning will more than offset the tears of our groaning creation. "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning (Psalm 30:5)."
The Bible observes that the whole creation is groaning and waiting for something better, (Romans 8:19, 22) but they grope along blindly, not realizing the magnitude of God's gracious purposes. Soon, our great Creator's plan for man will far exceed our highest hopes (1 Corinthians 2:9). The love of God will go far beyond man's greatest expectations!
