jw.org - Who Really Controls the World? Do you think it is . . .God? Humankind? Someone else?






Who Really Controls the World?


Do you think it is . . .
  • God?
  • humankind?
  • someone else?

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

“The Evil One controls the whole world.”1 John 5:19.
“The Son of God came . . . to destroy the devil’s work.”1 John 3:8, New Century Version.

WHAT THAT CAN MEAN FOR YOU

Logical explanations for the world’s problems.Revelation 12:12.
Reason to believe that our world will change for the better.1 John 2:17.


Satan controlling the world’s politics, military, religions, and people

CAN WE REALLY BELIEVE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS?

Yes, for at least three reasons:
  • Satan’s rulership is doomed. Jehovah is determined to bring Satan’s control over mankind to an end. He promises to “bring to nothing . . . the Devil” and undo all the damage that Satan has caused.Hebrews 2:14, New World Translation.
  • God has chosen Jesus Christ to rule the world. Jesus is the complete opposite of this world’s present cruel, selfish ruler. Concerning Jesus’ kingship, God promises: “He will have pity on the lowly and the poor . . . From oppression and from violence he will rescue them.”Psalm 72:13, 14.
  • God cannot lie. The Bible plainly states: “It is impossible for God to lie.” (Hebrews 6:18) When Jehovah promises to do something, it is as good as done! (Isaiah 55:10, 11) “The ruler of this world will be cast out.”John 12:31.

TO THINK ABOUT

What will the world be like after its ruler is removed?
The Bible answers that question at PSALM 37:10, 11 and REVELATION 21:3, 4.
