Peace is coming – be prepared

 

Unlikely as it may seem in view of today’s world being troubled by so many tensions and conflicts, the world is destined for a time of peace on an unprecedented scale. How will this be achieved? So many well-meaning human efforts have been made to accomplish this and yet have failed. Today, highly dangerous situations continue to be prominent in the Middle East, in the Korean peninsular, and in European nations bordering Russia. Peaceful coexistence between the major powers is under threat. Furthermore, extremist Islamic terrorism can strike anywhere – even in Australia, as already experienced in an increasing number of nations. Apart from the foregoing “headline” tensions there are many more areas of conflict in the world today.

 

There can be no solution to these growing threats to world peace without the supremacy and intervention of Almighty God and His righteousness. God’s inspired word, the Bible, predicts that the world will emerge from insoluble crisis to become a glorified and peaceful place. The Bible tells us repeatedly that Christ the Son of God will return to earth at a time of unprecedented crisis to establish God’s Kingdom. He will reign over the entire world, vanquish evil and achieve peace on earth. God’s word summarises beautifully the outcome of His intervention in world affairs:

“The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.” (Isaiah 32:17)

 

The big question is what are you doing, and what should you be doing, to prepare yourself for this momentous divine intervention? Unprecedented blessings will be conferred on those who have prepared for it and long for it to happen.

 

We warmly invite you to a free Bible presentation enlarging on this crucial subject and making clear what this preparation requires for such a blessed outcome. It’s titled Peace is coming – be prepared. This will be on Sunday evening the 26th of August at 7.00pm. The venue is the Christadelphian Hall, 489 Mt Gravatt-Capalaba Road, corner of Boyanda Street, opposite Ham Road, Wishart. That date and time again: Sunday evening the 26th of August at 7 o’clock.

Christ’s Return is a Certainty

Did you realise that Jesus Christ is going to come a second time to fulfil his destiny to be King of the world? Ordinarily, so called “world leaders” come and go – whether good, bad or mediocre. None of them actually “lead” the whole world. They are all fallible and all temporary. Mortality inevitably takes…

Why you should believe the Bible

Vast numbers of people today have little or no idea of the content of the Bible, let alone believe in its contents. There are some churches which claim to have the Bible as the sole authority for their beliefs. Other churches (some very large ones at that) claim that the authority of their leaders, or…

The Bible is God’s life handbook

The Bible claims to be the word of God – God’s inspired revelation of Himself and His Son, and His plan for the world. The Bible’s claim to truth is confirmed by its many future predictions that have actually come to pass – particularly predictions about Jesus Christ and God’s people Israel. This reassures us…

God’s Answer to Current World Chaos

Responsible world governments are deeply worried.

Israel – God’s Witnesses

The people of Israel are described in the Old Testament as “God’s witnesses” (Isaiah 43 vv10&12). God, we’re told, chose Israel not because of their importance but because He loved them. The Old and New Testaments contain an amazingly candid record of their history, with their flaws and failings plainly revealed – a consistent record…

Humanism and morality

Humanism represents a way of thinking that attaches prime importance to human thinking rather than a divine or supernatural authority. In contemporary western society humanism is largely non-religious and secular and does not recognise any divine authority. One of the problems arising from this philosophy is that humanists often fail to agree about the best…

God’s great promises

God’s “great and precious” promises hold out wonderful possibilities for us. They are detailed in the Old Testament, and confirmed and elaborated on in the New Testament. For instance, God’s promises to Abraham are described in the New Testament as “the gospel” and important comment stresses their relevance to us today. His promises to King…

The Bible’s Gospel of Hope

It’s usually bad news that makes headlines in our news media. However, the word “gospel” means, literally, “good news” – and that was what our Lord Jesus Christ and his apostles preached. The gospel message of hope we read about in the Bible concerns the Kingdom of God and the saving work of Jesus Christ.…

Why it matters what we believe

If you attend a church, or perhaps intend to do so, it’s probable that you believe that there is a God and that Jesus Christ is His Son. If that is so, then it’s really important to understand what God has revealed about Himself and His purpose in His inspired word, the Bible. God’s word…
