We, at Maranatha Ministry, believe in the literal return of Jesus Christ to establish
His kingdom upon this earth but the question remains for many.
Will Jesus Christ Intervene in the Affairs of Men?
Many intelligent and well educated men and women scoff at the idea that Jesus would
return to this world. They see no reason why He should, given the fact that they
believe that there is a God who has the power to do so.
It seems that the world of mankind has lost sight of the fact that God is real and
that He is not some imaginary concept with those who believe and that God is a very
much a real person, who has all the power at His disposal!
And it’s at this time in man’s history, that men have lost sight of the very basis
of all knowledge!
Men don’t know who He is; what He is; and why He is and the purpose of His existence!
A World In Chaos!
In spite of the efforts made by men to bring about lasting peace, world war looms
ahead. With the weapons that mankind has at his disposal global destruction is now
Many years ago, our Lord Jesus Christ spoke of a time when it would be termed, the
“last days” when the human race would be on the verge of extinction!
In Matthew 24:22 it says, that unless those days (meaning the last days) should be
shortened there would be no flesh saved alive!
Our Present World
In Matthew 24:37 it tells us that these days-the days that we are now living in,
are as “the days of Noah” and as such they show that Jesus Christ will come in like
manner to intervene in the lives of men.
Notice that Genesis 6:11-12. God compares our present world conditions with that
of Noah’s day. Now why? What had happened in Noah’s day or time?
Notice that in these verses that God had looked at the doings of men and found that
they had “corrupted Gods way” upon the earth! Men were corrupt and the earth was
filled with violence! You see, men had departed from the ways of God which God had
In our world today we do not see mankind seeking after God. Men use their own reasoning
in not doing the will of God. They simply do not have peace because of that reasoning
if you can call it reasoning, and even denying that God exists!
Let’s look at Psalm 53:1 The fool has said in his heart, “there is no God.” They
are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; there is none who does good!
Let’s look at Romans 3:16-18. Notice what Paul tells us of the carnal mind of men,
“destruction and misery are in their ways; and the ways of peace they have not known;
and there is no fear of God before their eyes.”
God speaks of a “definite way of peace.” Which men are ignorant of.
End Time Prophesied
These days that we live in are prophesied within the pages of the Bible and when
we look to the Word of God we can see how our society-that is how it thinks, how
it behaves, how it educates itself and how it will be in practice!
Let’s look at 2nd Timothy3:1 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times
will come!” In reading the entire chapter of 2nd Timothy, you can see how far men
have become. Notice their ways of living, “Truce breakers”, “Proud”, “blasphemers”,
having a “form of Godliness” but they deny His power to intervene in world affairs,
they also deny His power to rule in their lives!
No wonder Jeremiah 17:9 says, that the heart of man is deceitful and above all things
is desperately wicked!
Human nature since the time of the fall of Adam has not changed. Remember what Jesus
said about the conditions this world be in, just before His return the second time.
In Matthew 24:37 “As the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son
of Man shall be!” And this because God sees that “the wickedness of men is great
upon the earth and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart (mind) are only
evil continually and the earth is filled with violence!” (Genesis 6:5,11)
What’s the Alternative?
What needs to be remembered is that the conditions of this world would be like that
of Noah’s day just before the second coming of Jesus Christ.
You see, left to his own devices, man cannot solve the worlds problems, even though
some sincerely try to bring peace, they themselves are sincerely wrong!
In Proverbs 14:12 it tells us that, “there is a way which seems right to a man but
the end thereof are the ways of death!” The normal or carnal ideas of man have only
brought upon themselves death and destruction! As 2nd Timothy 3:13 tells us; they
go from bad to worse!
Despite all of the efforts of man to bring about lasting peace upon this world through
all of organizations that he has set up to prevent war, famine, sickness and death
all of these efforts have only failed!
So, what can men do? What do they need to do?
A Change of Heart
Let’s look at another scripture that will show us what men need. Ezekiel 11:19-20
“Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take
the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, that they may
walk in My statutes and keep My judgements and do them; and they shall be My people,
and I will be their God.” You see it is only God that can change the heart or mind
of man so that mankind will then be able to learn peace! And isn’t this something;
that God will actually force mankind to have peace but only on Gods’ terms! No more
wars, no more evil, only peace and harmony amongst men and women.
Let’s look at another Scripture which gives us the reason why Jesus Christ is coming
again to rule over the kingdoms of mankind. Revelation 11:15 “Then the angel sounded:
And there were loud voices in heaven, saying; “The kingdoms of this world have become
the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”
This is why our Lord Jesus is coming to this earth! He will rule not as the dictators
of mankind but one who will rule mankind out love for man. Jesus will bring peace
and security to our troubled world! This is the good news that the Bible gives to
Matthew 24:22 Notice here Jesus gives us the stark reality of what is to occur in
the last days, “And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but
for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened!” Can you grasp what the conditions
will be like at this time? Jesus Christ who is the saviour of mankind is saying unless
He himself intervenes in the affairs of man, then mankind would destroy all flesh
upon this planet! Isn’t sad that the world doesn’t have a clue of what the Bible
says on the subject? It is time that the world of man turn to God in repentance and
seek His protection! Jesus has to return in order to save us from ourselves!
Now notice another promise made by God in His word. Let’s look at 2 Peter 3:9 “ The
Lord is not slack concerning His Promise, as some count slackness, but is long suffering
towards us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
It has been said many times before, over the centuries that Jesus Christ is coming
soon and that event has not occurred but remember this; there has never been an age
like ours in which mankind has all the technology and science at our disposal to
completely erase all life from our planet! And this is the very reason why we need
our Saviour to return the second time to establish His kingdom on earth and then
mankind can truly see and know peace and live in the very family of God.
It’s Our World!
Now for some, it could be argued, well, why doesn’t God leave us alone to sort out
the mess that we have got ourselves into? If we want to destroy ourselves then so
be it! But is that the case? After all was it not God who created the earth and all
the stars and planets in the universe? Yes! Let’s look at Genesis 1:1”In the beginning
God created the heavens and the earth.”
In Psalm 50: 12 it says this; “If I were hungry, I would not tell you; For the world
is Mine, and all its fullness.” Here in this verse its telling us that God owns the
whole world” So, God has every right to intervene and stop His earth and its occupants
from total destruction! Even the evolutionists of this world know and recognize that
this world is on the verge of self destruction! You see, when Jesus comes again the
second time, He is not coming as a little baby in a manger but with all of the power
of the Almighty God at his disposal
