The Conversion Of The World And The Jews

The term, the conversion of the world, is nowhere used in the Bible.

That there is, according to the predictions of God's Holy Word, a

wonderful future in store for the earth, when nations will learn war no

more, but learn righteousness instead, and worship Jehovah as King and

Lord, is too well known to every intelligent Christian to need

restatement. When that jubilee time comes the knowledge of the glory

of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the deep; the

groaning creation, now so sadly sharing in the curse of man's sin, will

be delivered from its groans. It is noteworthy that there are no

promises in the New Testament which would authorize the Church of God

to expect the accomplishment of these predictions as the result of her

testimony and activity. If this were her work, to convert the world,

to lead nations to know God, to abandon the most horrible result of

sin, war--we would have to confess that she has failed miserably. Nor

is it true, as some now say, that this world war will, when it ends,

bring about these blessed things by man's renewed efforts. If it is

the work of present agencies, the expected world conversion lies in an

unreachable distance.
