The ideal candidate
Jesus Christ had remarkable powers of leadership. Many men have laid down their lives willingly for his sake
Enforcing his decisions would be no problem. When he was here before, the force of his personality was awe-inspiring. A detachment of armed guards was once sent to arrest him. They came back empty handed, pleading:
"No man ever spoke like this Man!"
John 7 v 46
No one will be able to criticise his behaviour. While he was on earth he threw out a challenge to his opponents:
"Can any of you prove me guilty of sin?"
John 8 v 4
Although they hated Jesus they were never able to take up the challenge. above all, Jesus Christ is the only great figure in all history who was completely untainted by the love of greatness, power or material possessions. The Bible makes it plain that he always sympathised with the weakness of others. Without doubt, Jesus is the only man who would make a satisfactory world president.
The rescue plan
The Bible makes it plain that Jesus Christ is coming back to the earth. When he left the earth, his followers were told:
"This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven"
Acts 1 v 11
The Bible’s rescue plan involves sorting out our world’s problems including:
- The problem we all face - death
Here is one section of the Bible that talks about this rescue plan
"The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide. They will beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. Every man will sit under his own vine and under his own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid,"
Micah 4 v 2 to 4
On a personal level, the Bible tells us that we can be involved in this plan. If we die before Jesus comes, we can be raised from the dead.
