God’s Plan for His Creation
The reality is that the Bible is the only reliable guide that we have, discount it and you are in the mire of guesswork and conjecture. The Bible gives us the right way to live and does have a lot of prophecy, some accurately fulfilled, some still future. The prophet Daniel 12:9-10, says that some will be kept secret and sealed till the end time, but those who seek the truth and study the Word will understand.
Isaiah prophesied about 75 generations ago; Isaiah 24:1 Be warned, the Lord is about to lay waste to the earth, to devastate it and scatter its inhabitants.
By now, perhaps 1 billion people will have read this prophesy and it never happened to them. Why should we think it could happen to this generation?
There are several possibilities that could bring about a worldwide disaster: a nuke war, a comet strike, earthquakes, volcanoes, a Coronal Mass Ejection, etc. Everyone can see that there will soon have to be some kind of severe shakeup to sort out the world’s problems.
With Bible prophesy, I have found that it is necessary to clear the mind of humanistic ideas and look at it from what God’s purpose might be:
1/ God created everything. Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 66:1-2
2/ He does have a plan for His creation. Psalms 33:11
3/ That plan seems to be the formation of a group of beings like Himself, who freely choose to love and serve Him. Isaiah 43:10
4/ Those who refuse to acknowledge Him, may face destruction. Deuteronomy 7:10, Romans 9:22-29
God’s plan involved choosing one righteous man, Abraham, who demonstrated real faith in God and using his descendants to be a nation that would be ‘a light to the nations’, showing everyone the right way to live. Unfortunately, the Israelites did not do this and they divided into two nations, who both went into exile from the Holy Land. The return of Judah has started, still to be completed, but Israel is at present still scattered among the nations. When their decreed exile punishment is completed very soon, as we are told in Ezekiel 4:4-5 and Leviticus 26:18, then all the twelve tribes, including people from every race, nation and language, will be able to go and live in their heritage, in peace and prosperity. Isaiah 35:1-10, Ezekiel 34:11-31
The Lord’s Holy Land, Deut. 11:12 must be cleared and cleansed; at the first Exodus the people were tasked to do that, Deut. 6:19 but they failed to complete the job and the remaining inhabitants induced the Israelites into idolatry. This time, the Lord Himself will punish His enemies and clear all the area promised to the Patriarchs. Deuteronomy 32:34-43, 2 Chronicles 7:14, Ezekiel 30:1-5 and the more than 100 prophesies that describe the forthcoming Lord’s Day of vengeance and wrath, a worldwide judgement/punishment by fire that will fulfil Psalms 83:1-18, Isaiah 24:1-23, and the Sixth Seal of Revelation 6:12-17.
Then, the Lord’s faithful Christian people will live in the Land, being all that He originally planned for them, but the rest of the world – slowly recovering from this terrible fire judgement, will form a One World government.
