And I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.” Revelation 5:11, 12 (New American Standard Bible)
If you’re old enough to recall the 1950s then you may remember the half-hour television show “Super Man.” He was known as the “Man of Steel” and could do most anything to catch law breakers without being injured. He was the hero of America and as the show’s beginning narration went he protected “truth, justice and the American way.” He was a super hero who could always be called on to right the wrong done in his city of “Metropolis.”
As we see what is happening in the world any normal person can’t help but be alarmed. Truth is subjective to people’s agendas and justice is being perverted by those with power while the strong prey on the weak physically and financially. Cheaters are prospering. In the last few decades we’ve seen wholesome virtues run into the ground with evil seeming to flourish. Will it ever change for the better and fulfill the longing of human beings in every part of the earth? I have bad news followed by extremely good news. The bad news is as long as sinful men and women control the nations governments that harm and take advantage of its citizens evil will continue. The good news is a Man is coming who will ensure that truth, justice and the Godly way are restored. The Man who will bring this Godly society into being is Jesus Christ.
When He sets up His rule from Jerusalem as the King of the Earth, righteousness will reign. The weak will be protected by the rule of the saints of God (Revelation 20:4). There will be no more harm in all the earth by man or even the animal kingdom (Isaiah 65:25). The good care of mankind will be evident everywhere and people will want for nothing. Those who try to cheat, rob and steal will be dealt with under the righteous rule of the saints of God. It is sad that there is so much harm and cruelty being committed by the human race but in the plan of eternity it is momentary. There will be peace only when the Prince of Peace brings it. We wait with the greatest longing to see Him. Meanwhile let us be patient and think of how God has everything in His sight and nothing moves without His consent. We don’t need the man of steel. Jesus Christ is better, stronger and wiser in the eternal scheme of things. He will bring truth, justice and the Godly way and what He changes for the good will last forever.
