REASONS: BEHIND POSTPONEMENT OF DOOMSDAY 2012
Why The Almighty God Postponed the Doomsday 2012?
“God moves in a mysterious way,
His wonders to perform:
He plants his footsteps in the sea,
And rides upon the storm.
Well it’s a million dollar question in the minds of every living beings out here on earth.. Every one looking towards heaven for the answer.. All of us waiting to hear, But the Almighty has it’s own ways of explaining things ” given in signs and We have to look out for the signs of the God to understand(at least something) of his divine plans .
So, I think all of us must sit down and be relaxed, then prepare and watch out for the signs of the Almighty..
As some ignorantly misjudge the skill and wisdom of a great architect and builder by his unfinished work, so also many in their ignorance now misjudge God by his unfinished work; but by and by, when the rough scaffolding of evil, which has been permitted for man’s discipline, and which shall finally be overruled for his good, has been removed, and the rubbish cleared away, God’s finished work will universally declare his infinite wisdom and power; and his plans will be seen to be in harmony with his glorious character.
God’s method of dealing with men did not vary during all that time – from Adam’s fall to the flood. God had given man his law, written in his very nature; but after he had sinned he left him measurably to his own course, which was downward, “evil, and that continually,” that thus man might realize his folly, and that the wisdom of God in commanding absolute obedience might be made manifest.
Since God tells us that he has a definitely fixed purpose, and that all his purposes shall be accomplished, it behooves us, as his children, to inquire diligently what those plans are, that we may be found in harmony with them.
Notice how emphatically Jehovah affirms the fixedness of his purpose: “Jehovah of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it be.” “The Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it?” “I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me. . . My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure. . .
Yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.” (Isa. 14: 24-27; 46: 9 – 11.)
Therefore, however haphazard or mysterious God’s dealings with men may appear, those who believe this testimony of his Word must acknowledge that his original and unalterable plan has been, and still is, progressing systematically to completion.
While the mass of mankind, groping in the darkness of ignorance, must await the actual developments of God’s plan, before they can realize the glorious character of the Divine Architect, it is the privilege of the child of God to see by faith and the light of his lamp the foretold glories of the future, and thereby to appreciate the otherwise mysterious dealings of the past and the present. Therefore, as interested sons of God, and heirs of a promised inheritance, we apply to our Father’s Word, that we may understand his purposes from the plans and specifications therein given.
We must understand that the world we are living in is the World that is under the rule of Satan, the usurper, it has been indeed an “evil world;” it is called “Evil World” not because there is nothing good in it, but because in it evil is permitted to predominate.
“Now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.” (Mal. 3: 15.)
Because Satan is the prince (ruler) of the present evil world, evil prospers and the wicked flourish.
That in this present evil world, whosoever will live godly shall suffer persecution, while the wicked flourish like a green bay tree. – 2 Tim. 3: 12;Psa. 37:35.
But the world that we are waiting for will be the Kingdom of God.. “THE WORLD TO COME – “wherein dwelleth righteousness.” – Heb. 2:5; 2 Pet. 3:13.
Under divine administration it will be an era of righteousness and of blessing to all the families of the earth. It is mentioned as “THE WORLD TO COME- ” Wherein dwellth righteousness” not because there will be no evil in it, but because evil will not predominate. The blotting out of evil will be gradual, requiring all of the first thousand years. Evil will not rule then; it will not prosper; it will no longer be the wicked that will flourish; but
“The righteous shall flourish” (Psa. 72 : 7),
“The “obedient shall eat the good of the land” (Isa. 1: 19), and
“The evil doer shall be cut off.” – Psa. 37: 9.
Lord’s words show why there is to be a difference between the present and the future world. It is because he will be the prince or ruler of the world to come, that in it righteousness and truth will prosper; while, because Satan is the prince (ruler) of the present evil world, evil prospers and the wicked flourish.
As Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world,” and until the era or “world to come” does come, Christ’s kingdom will not control the earth. And for this we are taught to hope and pray, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth.” Satan is the “ruler of the darkness of this world,” and therefore “darkness covers the earth and gross darkness the people.” He now rules and works in the hearts of the children of disobedience. – Eph. 2 : 2; 6: 12.
Now the point to be noted that “There must be some very important part of the great Architect’s plan for man’s salvation not yet fully developed – else the new prince and the new world would have been introduced in 2012.
Why it was postponed for an appointed time, and also the manner of the change from the present dominion of evil under Satan to that of righteousness under Christ, are points of interest which will be more fully shown hereafter. Suffice it now to say, that the kingdoms of this world, now subject to Satan, are at the proper time to become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ. (Rev. 11 : 15.) The context shows that the transfer will be accomplished by a general time of trouble.
In reference to it Jesus said, “No man can enter into a strong man’s house and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man, and then he will spoil his house.” (Mark 3 : 22-27.)
Thus we are taught that Satan must first be bound, restrained and deposed, before Christ’s reign of righteousness and peace can be established. This binding of Satan is accordingly to be the first work in the transformation of the new world . – Rev. 20: 2.
For the kingdoms of this world are supported and enriched through oppression, injustice and deceit, to as great an extent as the increasing intelligence of the people will permit.
Satan, the present “prince of this world,” must yet be displaced, and these kingdoms, now under his control, must become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Anointed, when he shall take unto himself his great power, and reign.
Therefore, this unfinished work of God, This binding of Satan is accordingly to be the first work in the transformation of the new world . – Rev. 20: 2.
“Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust him for his grace.
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.
“His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour.
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.
