    At some time in your life, you have likely asked, ‘Why all the suffering?’ For thousands of years, the human family has suffered greatly from wars, poverty, disasters, crime, injustice, sickness, and death. The past hundred years have seen more suffering than ever before. Will all of this ever end?








    The comforting answer is yes, and very soon! God’s Word, the Bible, proclaims: "The wicked one will be no more . . . But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, and they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." For how long? "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it."—Psalm 37:10, 11, 29.​

    After God removes wickedness and suffering, the earth will be transformed into a paradise. Then people will be able to live forever in perfect health and happiness. God’s Word foretells: "[God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore."—Revelation 21:4.​

    In that new world, even dead ones will be brought back to life to share in those blessings: "There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15) That is why Jesus Christ could tell a repentant evildoer who expressed faith in him: "You will be with me in Paradise."—Luke 23:43. and how will this come about

    Bible prophecy says: "In the days of those kings [human rulerships now existing] the God of heaven will set up a kingdom [in heaven] that will never be brought to ruin. . . . It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms [present rulerships], and it itself will stand to times indefinite." (Daniel 2:44) The vindication of Jehovah’s sovereignty, his right to rule, by his heavenly Kingdom is the central teaching of the Bible. Foretelling a key part of the sign of "the last days," Jesus said: "This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come."—Matthew 24:14.​

    When the end comes, who will survive? The Bible answers: "The upright are the ones that will reside in the earth, and the blameless are the ones that will be left over in it. As regards the wicked, they will be cut off from the very earth." (Proverbs 2:21, 22) Jesus Christ said: "This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ." (John 17:3) Yes, "the world is passing away . . . , but he that does the will of God remains forever."—1 John 2:17

    well i suppose it would be those who are blameless or wicked in Jehovahs eyes
    Those crooked at heart are something detestable to Jehovah, but the ones blameless in [their] way are a pleasure to him. proverbs 11;20

    that YOU may come to be blameless and innocent, children of God without a blemish in among a crooked and twisted generation, among whom YOU are shining as illuminators in the world...phillipians 2;15 we can only try our best to be a pleasure to God,

    Hope in Jehovah and keep his way, and he will exalt you to take possession of the earth. When the wicked ones are cut off, you will see it. psalm 37;34

    How many times does Jehovah need to cut off the wicked ones. He has supposedly done that before with the same result....man continues to do wicked things. Well..........he was made in Gods image.....so why are we surprised. God knows evil and has used evil.

    Genesis 3:5 (New International Version)


    5 "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

    The blamless are those who have recieved Jesus as their personal savior which absolves them of their sin making them as spotless and white as snow and those who will be cast out will go to the eternal lake of fire where there will be no quenching their thirst and there will be gnashing of teeth and they will be forever tormented in this lake of fire!


    There is NO time given for this suffering to end only that it will come...this has been fortold for thousands of years...we will NOT know when the Savior will come it will be as a thief in the night with a shout....much has not come to pass yet so there is still time to get it right in the eyes of God. One must also remember that to know suffering is the only way to realize that non-suffering is the opposite and strive for the good over the evil so that in that day we will be ready to be taken up by our Master to live in this perfect world.:)

    All the evidence shows that we are nearing the end of man’s tragic experiment in independence from God. It has been clearly demonstrated that rulership by humans apart from God can never succeed. Only God’s rulership can bring peace, happiness, perfect health, and everlasting life. So Jehovah’s toleration of wickedness and suffering is nearing its end. Soon God will intervene in human affairs by destroying this entire unsatisfactory system of things.......... bring it on

    Unfortunately, "soon" is relative.

    As we all know, only Jehovah knows the day , so are we ready , and are we meek, to be meek means to be teachable ,willing to be taught by Jehovah ,just as Jesus was willing to be taught by Jehovah his God
    The psalmist David wrote: "[Jehovah] will cause the meek ones to walk in his judicial decision, and he will teach the meek ones his way. ..........psalm 25;9

    Trust in Jehovah with all your heart and do not lean upon your own understanding. In all your ways take notice of him, and he himself will make your paths straight. ...proverbs 3;5-6 so thats what i am trying my best to do ,

    seek Jehovah, all YOU meek ones of the earth, who have practiced His own judicial decision. Seek righteousness, seek meekness. Probably YOU may be concealed in the day of Jehovah’s anger. Zephaniah 2;3

    We know we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the [power of the] wicked one. 1 john 5;19

    (John 12:31) Now there is a judging of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out

    (1 John 3:8) He who carries on sin originates with the Devil, because the Devil has been sinning from [the] beginning.

    Or, "from when he began." From the time he started sinning

    For this purpose the Son of God was made manifest, namely, to break up the works of the Devil ....1 john 3;8

    (Genesis 3:14) And Jehovah God proceeded to say to the serpent: "Because YOU have done this thing, ​



    (John 8:44) That one (THE DEVIL)was a manslayer when he began,(SINNING) and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie] . Yes Jehovah has put everything in place to get rid of ALL wicked ones , what a relief that will be

    The Bible alone tells us what we must do to please God.—Psalm 1:1-4; Isaiah 48:17, 18



    Happy is the man that has not walked in the counsel of the wicked ones,




    And in the way of sinners has not stood,​

    And in the seat of ridiculers has not sat.​

    2 But his delight is in the law of Jehovah,​

    And in his law he reads in an undertone day and night.​

    3 And he will certainly become like a tree planted by streams of water,​

    That gives its own fruit in its season​

    And the foliage of which does not wither,​

    And everything he does will succeed.​

    4 The wicked are not like that,​

    But are like the chaff that the wind drives away.​

    5 That is why the wicked ones will not stand up in the judgment,​

    Nor sinners in the assembly of righteous ones

    This is what Jehovah has said, your Repurchaser, the Holy One of Israel: "I, Jehovah, am your God, the One teaching you to benefit [yourself], the One causing you to tread in the way in which you should walk. 18 O if only you would actually pay attention to my commandments! Then your peace would become just like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.............so for me, paying attention to what the bible says is a must.

    God sent Jesus to earth for three reasons: (1) To teach us the truth about God (John 18:37), (2) to maintain perfect integrity, providing a model for us to follow (1 Peter 2:21), and (3) to sacrifice his life to set us free from sin and death. so listening to Jesus is a must also.

    This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ. john 17;3 so i can only take in knowledge about Jehovah and Jesus in the bible. and that is what i am trying to do .
