The righteous themselves will possess the earth,
And they will reside forever upon it.”
When will the righteous possess the earth? Well, from the looks of things, it won’t be much longer. This could be great news for you, as you’ll learn. There is absolutely no need to fear if you heed the warning. Unfortunately, many are not.
Matthew 24:38-39 “. . .For as they were in those days before the flood, eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark; and they took no note until the flood came and swept them all away, so the presence of the Son of man will be.”
Have you ever heard the term cognitive dissonance?
Cognition: The process of thinking; the mental act or process by which knowledge is acquired, including perception, intuition, and reasoning (thefreedictionary.com)
Dissonance: Lack of agreement, consistency, or harmony; conflict (thefreedictionary.com)
Cognitive dissonance as used in this series of posts related to the 7th World Power of Bible prophecy is the reality of what actually is true as opposed to what you want to be true.
Sometimes we just have to face things. This is one of those times. Whatever you choose to do or not do, your life is going to change soon.
Revelation 17:10. . .And there are seven kings: five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet arrived, but when he does arrive he must remain a short while.
The fallen kings (or world powers) were Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia and Greece. The one who “is” at the time of John’s writing the Bible book of Revelation was the Roman Empire, existing as the 6th World Power of Bible prophecy at that time.
Yes Egypt, Rome and Greece exist today. But are they existing as powers dominating the world as they once did? They are not.
The 7th world power of Bible prophecy, the dual world power of the United States / Great Britain had not yet arrived, “but when he does he must remain a short while.”
The “short while” is about up.
Bible prophecy does not lie.
This 7th Anglo-American world power is crumbling, imploding in slow-motion right before your very eyes. Some see it very clearly. Others totally ignore the signs, deluding themselves into believing that this 7th world power will somehow escape its fate that is clearly laid out in the holy scriptures.
There is calamity ahead. The Bible offers sound advice…
Proverbs 22:3 “. . . A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. (New Living Translation)
Prudent: Practical and careful in providing for the future; exercising good judgment or common sense. (dictionary.com)
Perhaps you have plans and goals that do not harmonize with the reality of a dying system. Or perhaps you notice that things are getting kind of bad, but you don’t know what it means. Perhaps you know what it means, but you don’t know what to do about it, or you think it’s hopeless. Or perhaps you choose not to think about it at all.
The reality of this sinking empire is dismal, but it is what it is. However, there is good news, too. It does not have to mean doom for you.
The History Channel recently aired a documentary called Prophets of Doom in which several men who are considered knowledgeable – perhaps even experts in their fields discussed just a few of the challenges facing the United States. As you’ll learn, these same problems are also facing Great Britain.
Today’s world has troubles unique to its time in history, from the global financial crisis to technological meltdowns to full-scale, computerized global war. Observing the convergence of such events, contemporary prophets have begun to emerge from obscurity to suggest that these conditions might be signs of the demise of the modern world.
These men are historians as well, using all manner of information and patterns from the past to provide context for where we are going. Their predictions interpret the current state of affairs in our world as evidence that the America we know may come to an end.
The men proposing these ideas are not crackpots living on the streets of New York; they are intelligent, learned men who come armed with the evidence to back up their claims. – History Channel, Prophets of Doom
Unsustainable population growth, an economic collapse, energy shortages, terrorist nuclear threats, and a shortage of fresh water are just a few of the problems the 7th world empire is now confronted with.
Cognitive dissonance is a term I learned from the documentary Prophets of Doom and describes so many today.
Are you up for it? Can you handle the realities of the planet you reside on? Will you push through your fears and anxieties and face the wind in the form of the truth? What you’re going to learn is eye-opening, maybe a little bit frightening. It is what it is. But there is help for you if you reach for it.
Do your own research. Prove to yourself that what I will share with you is true. And then you can decide whether to become prudent or … I didn’t say it!
Don’t be afraid. Again, there is good news in all of this. The end of the 7th world power of Bible prophecy is the beginning of a government that will bring paradise on earth.
Daniel 2:44 “. . .“And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite;”
Do you want to be there?
John 17:3 “. . .This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.”
As John 17:3 states, it will require you to take in knowledge of the true and living God Jehovah and of his son, Jesus Christ.
Jehovah’s Witnesses will be very happy to help you take in accurate knowledge using the publication “What Does the Bible Really Teach?” This publication can also be downloaded in MP3, AAC and .pdf formats.
Psalm 37:11 “But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, And they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.”
You, too, can experience an abundance of peace in the future paradise on earth. Contact your local Kingdom Hall or www.watchtower.org to request a free home Bible study.
