“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:1-5)”
God is the Word from the beginning, life, and light of all mankind. Therefore, when God is with people, they can continue to live because they receive life from God. Then why do people die nowadays? Isn’t God with us? The answer is in the Bible.
Adam was created by God and he was supposed to rule over the world of God’s creations. However, Adam was deceived by Satan’s lie. Adam betrayed God and handed over the world to Satan. The world became corrupt due to Satan and the world was full of wickedness. Since sinners die if they see God, He had no choice but to leave the world because He loved his people. This incident happened about 6,000 years ago. Since then, the human race has lived under Satan’s rule without God.
As soon as God, who is life, left, the lifespan of people began to shorten. Starting with Adam who died at age 930, people began to die earlier and earlier. Just like how a lamp goes out without oil, human life began to grow shorter since life(oil) left along with God.
Fortunately, God never gave up on his people and the world. After trial and error, God found the way to completely free the world from Satan. He has already put this into action secretly, and soon, God will be able to reclaim the world. Do you want to know what he did? Click this link: http://cafe.daum.net/scjschool/E4mY/1005
