Great events have heretofore come to pass and which involved many nations. Among these events, the two World Wars have been the greatest wars from human history. But, in the very near future a far greater event will occur and this will involve the entire universe, namely the universal war, known in Scriptures as the Armageddon or the war of the great day of God, the Almighty. This war, which is near at hand, will be by far the biggest from all times. Less people will survive this war and this will happen only because they have accepted the truth from God's Word and comply with it.

With the theocratic New World society already functioning and preparing to move out of this old world, and with the God-given message of "new heavens and a new earth" ringing louder and louder in our ears, the end of the corrupt, Devil-controlled old world is nothing for lovers of truth, right and godliness to fear or regret. Jesus taught his disciples to pray for its end in these words to God: "Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your kingdom come. Let your will come to pass, as in heaven, also upon earth."- Matt. 6:9, 10.

It was of significance that faithful Abraham built the altar on which to sacrifice his beloved son Isaac upon a mountain that Jehovah God designated in the land of Moriah. Nineteen centuries later in that same region Jehovah let his only begotten Son be sacrificed, for it was on Mount Moriah that King Solomon built the first temple of Jerusalem.

Such things being well under way, it is very timely to review a few of the points made by Jesus, especially since the time for celebrating the Memorial draws near, namely, Monday, April 14, 2014, at sundown of which day Nisan 14 begins.

The cosmos or world that stands today had its beginning some time after the flood of Noah's day in 2,370 B.C. After describing the destruction of the preflood world with its heavens and earth, the apostle Peter warns us in writing: "But by the same word [of God] the heavens and the earth that are now are stored up for fire and are being reserved to the day of judgment and of destruction of the ungodly men." (2 Pet. 3:7, NW) Now, the literal planet earth and the literal heavens above did not pass away at the flood, but the symbolic ones did; so we must understand that the "heavens and the earth that are now" that are stored up for fiery destruction must be the symbolic ones. Who created them?

A corrupt world came into existence when Adam joined Eve in eating the forbidden fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, thereby expressing his approval of her disobedient act and transgression of God's law. How long would this corrupt world of that time last? God decided.
January / 2014
At Eden at the beginning of God's seventh creative day a righteous world existed. The time was about 4,025 B.C. There was then a righteous earth under righteous heavens.

God's heavenly sons, who had sung at the founding of the earth as a special creation, fol-lowed this drama of creation with the keenest of interest. Little did they realize that what was finally to be brought forth on this the closing work day of the creative week was to affect heaven and earth and to make necessary the creating of new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness is to dwell uninterruptedly forever. The evening of this day begins! "And God went on to say: 'Let the earth put forth living souls according to their kinds, domestic animal and creeping animal and wild beast of the earth according to its kind.' And it came to be so." (Gen. 1:24)

In the beginning of the Book of Hebrews, apostle Paul says: "God, having of old time spoken unto the fathers in the prophets by divers portions and in divers manners, hath at the end of these days spoken unto us in his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the worlds."

Describing it as one great divine act of creation that provided all the tremendous masses of matter that were involved, Genesis 1:1 opens up the Holy Bible with the words: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.".

The creating of new heavens and a new earth is now under way. This is an all-powerful reason for lovers of truth, righteousness, liberty and life in peace and happiness to overflow with irrepressible joy. After almost six thousand years of human sorrow, suffering and death, at last permanent relief is near at hand and will be realized within this generation. A clean, just and healthful new world is immediately before them and they may enter into it. Now, when the outlook for this old world is utterly hopeless, it is high time for persons who long for life under perfect conditions to inform themselves and prove whether this startling good news is true. If it is true - and it can be proved true upon the highest authority - then it is only reasonable that they prepare for it, letting it be a guide to their present course of action. In view of the shortness of the time, it is most urgent that they do so. This will save them from sharing the certain destruction of a doomed old world and guarantee them a joyful entrance into the new world that will endure forever with blessings for its inhabitants.

In tense years when the communistic Russia and the capitalistic democracies eyed one another suspiciously, it was an uncomfortable thing to be rich in this world’s goods. The Bible does not favor the communist side of the controversy when it declares at James 5:1: "Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you."
