0 YOU want to live in peace and happiness?
Do you desire good health and long life for
yourself and your loved ones? Do you long to see
wickedness and suffering end? Every honest-
hearted person wants these things. But today, in
all parts of the earth, violence, crime, hunger and
sickness are increasing. Why is the world so filled
with trouble? What does it all mean? Is there any
sound reason to believe that conditions will really
get better in our lifetime?
'Yes, there is reason for such hope, and it is
clearly set out in a book that is published in more
languages than any other book in the world. That
book is the Bible. It tells us of God's purpose to
set up an entirely new system of things for man-
kind. If you had the power to do so, would you not
bring to an end the conditions that cause so much
sorrow? Of course you would! Should we think
that the Creator of mankind will do any less? The
Bible tells us that "God is love." (1 John 4:s)
Surely this loving heavenly Father knows what
mankind needs. He has the power to fill those
needs, and he will most certainly do so, for Psalm
1. In vlew of ramscnlng world condltlona, what questions nriw?

145:16* says of God: "You are opening your hand
and satisfying the desire of every living thing."
See also Deuteronomy 32:4.
'When will God satisfy man's desire for true
peace and happiness, along with lasting health
and life? Must mankind wait for thousands of
years more? No! The time is near at hand! But
how can this be? Conditions in the world are get-
ting worse, not better. True, but the Bible clearly
showed, long in advance, that these very condi-
tions would be proof that we are living in the "last
days" of the present wicked system. (2 Timothy
3:l-5) Soon the loving Creator will bring to their
end both wickedness and those who cause it. But
God will richly bless honest-hearted ones who
want to do what is right, for he promises: "The
world is passing away and so is its desire, but he
that does the will of God remains forever."
-1 John 2:17.
'What a change this earth will experience!
There will be no more war, nor will there be any
of the suffering that war brings. Hatred, selfish-
ness, crime and violence will all be things of the
past. Instead, there will be perfect peace and se-
curity on earth. God's own Word declares: "Just
a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no
mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. . . .
Look! I am making all things new." (Revelation
21:4, 5)" That is something that no human ruler,
no scientist, no doctor can do; but it is something
that God will do. Is it reasonable that God's only
purpose for man is that he spend twenty years
growing up, perhaps another twenty or thirty
years gaining knowledge and experience, and
shortly thereafter begin to grow old, suffer from
sickness and die? Why should man's life be so
short when even a turtle may live to the age of
two hundred years and a tree may live far longer?
God made man to live, not to die. The Creator
promises that soon it will be possible to enjoy life
everlastingly, right here on earth. (Isaiah 25:8)
With peace-loving neighbors, good health and
satisfying activity to All our lives, what a pleasure
that will be!

the fulfillment of this heartwarming promise does
not depend on men! It is God who will bring it
about. How? By destroying the wicked and by
educating his people in the ways of peace.-Prov-
erbs 2:21, 22; Isaiah 54:13.
