THE NEXT WORLD.
The present world may seem to lack nothing; but the order of the world has been established with the trial of man in mind. According to God’s scheme, only a world which leads up to reward and punishment can be considered ideal punishment. This is not the case in the present world. So, when the period of trial is over. God will destroy this world and creat another more complete one. There the evil will be separated from the righteous, and all will be confronted with the just consequences of their deeds.
The present world is full of strange paradoxes. Here, birds chant hymns of divine praise, while man recites eulogies to himself. Stars and planets continue their voyages without clashing with one another, while man willfully sets himself on a collision course with others. In this world there is no tree which undermines another, but men spend their lives plotting one another’s destruction. Lofty, upright trees show their meekness by casting their shadows on the ground, but if man ascends to any heights he immediately becomes arrogant. This attitude of man to totally contrary to God’s will for His entire creation. Doomsday shall erase these paradoxes, the might of all save God shall be eradicated, and every will save His shall be negated.
When this period of trial has run its course, God will destroy the present world and created another one. There, the righteous and wicked will be separated from one another. The former will reside in paradise and the latter in hell-fire.
