There Will Always Be Evil Until Jesus Reigns

Yes, there will always be evil on this earth until King Jesus takes the reins and reigns over this earth. There will always be evil men who cannot be reasoned with. But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived {2 Timothy 3:13}.This is why God ordained governments over the people; to protect them from evil. NOT to make sure they have free college educations, smart phones, big screen televisions and huge entitlements that are building up massive debts, but to protect them!

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience...{Romans 13:1-7}

Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good.  {1 Peter 2:13}

It boggles my mind that some think evil men can simply be talked out of doing evil things and therefore, we don't need many policemen or a strong military. As we have seen on 9/11 and yesterday in France, there are evil men out there whose sole purpose is to kill, steal and destroy who do the deeds of their father Satan. Evil will continue until God does away with Satan and Jesus reigns on this earth for a thousand years. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years {Revelation 20:6}. Then Satan will be released for a short time to deceive many but this is where his evil finally ends. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever {Revelation 20:10}.

After all the evil are judged, the party on earth begins when all evil is done away with forever! And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God {Revelation 21:1-3}.

This is our hope and our future! This is why we can smile at the future; knowing that God is Sovereign over all and has it all under control. Yes, we mourn with and pray for those who have lost their loved ones yesterday and every day that someone is murdered by evil men, including the precious 38 year old pregnant pastor’s wife shot dead in her home, but for those who place their hope in Jesus, we wait for a new heaven and a new earth where there will be no more crying, no more pain, no more evil and no more death. God will reign and we will be His people. His plan from the beginning will be accomplished just as He promised us it would.

Pray that many will turn to the Savior of their soul during this difficult time in France. May they find peace and healing that can only come from Him whom all blessings flow.
