The world faces many threats of armed conflict today. Highly dangerous situations continue to be prominent in the Middle East, in the Korean Peninsular, in the South China Sea and in European nations bordering Russia. Peaceful coexistence between the major powers is in jeopardy. Furthermore, extremist religious terrorism can strike anywhere – even in Australia, and it has already been experienced in an increasing number of nations.
United States and Russian intervention in the Syrian civil war with their opposing aims has brought their relationship to a point that could lead to an all-out war between them that would also involve their associated client states. The movement of NATO troops into nations bordering Russia further heightens tension between the western powers and Russia. These two situations have revived the dangerous “cold war” situation of former decades. These and other threats to world peace are leading to the curtailment of principles that have governed western democracies for decades. They have led to the election of “nationalistic” leaders and governments. These divisive developments have the potential to lead to more widespread ruinous warfare and the potential use of nuclear weaponry.
There can be no solution to these growing threats to world peace without the 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 Jesus 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 the outcome of divine intervention in world affairs:
“And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.” Daniel 2:44
