People act more and more selfish. Sorrow and misery
is increasing in the world. Though God Shows a lot of patience and gives people plenty of time to repent,
most of them refuse to turn back to him.
God is causing a worldwide flood to hit the earth.
Just Noah and his loved ones who are loyal to God
and live by his commandments, survive;
along with some animals.
The earth's landscape changes after the flood.
God makes a covenant with Noah and promises him blessings. But sin has not yet been overcome.
People are multiplying again, but few remain loyal to God and ask about Him sincerely. Most peoples make their own "gods" (ie idols = false gods) and worship them.
The proud people band together to build a tower in Babel that will reach up to heaven to show that they are mighty as God. But God confuses their languages and the project fails. This is how the different nations come into being and languages of the earth.
God divides the earth. The continents emerge.

Israel moves to Egypt, where it initially lives in peace.
But a few generations later, a pharaoh makes the people slaves. This is why God calls Moses - a faithful Israelite - to free Israel from slavery.
With great signs and wonders God lead
Israel through Moses out of Egypt.
God makes a covenant with Israel, his first chosen people, from which salvation is to come to all other nations on earth. God gives Israel his law and promises his people blessings and protection from their enemies and a fertile land in which they and their descendants can live in peace; provided, that they are faithful to God.
God fulfills his promise and brings Israel to the promised land. Yet Israel repeatedly breaks its covenant with God. Although God constantly calls his people to repent through various prophets, few follow him with all their hearts. Most of the people are determined by greed
God gave Israel numerous prophecies over many centuries, according to which the Savior of all people will come from the people and that through him God will judge the whole earth on a fixed day and will deliver you from all evil.

When the time is fulfilled, Jesus, the promised Savior of mankind - as prophesied - is be born in Bethlehem.
Jesus goes with his disciples through Israel to tell people about God and to proclaim eternal life to all who believe in God through him and repent of their sins. In doing so, Jesus does all sorts of signs and wonders through
which God confirms him as the promised Savior.
Jesus lives a sinless life and fulfills at the same time
all the prophecies of scripture about him.
Although Jesus is innocent, he is betrayed, mistreated,
and sentenced to death by the leaders of his people and
by resolution of the Roman governor Pontius Pilate.
Jesus, the Son of God, dies on the cross for the sins
of all people, so that all who turn to God,
received forgiveness for their sins in his name.
God raises Jesus from the dead on the third day.
The risen Jesus appears to his disciples,
to testify to them that he is alive.
God gives Jesus all power and authority in heaven
and on earth. Then Jesus ascends to God in heaven.
God has the good news of the gospel preached all over the world through believers so that everyone who is reconciled to God may be saved.
The last phase of this world time - the end time -
The end time:
Wars, epidemics and catastrophes are increasing steadily.
Professing Christians commit innumerable crimes in the name of the churches and in appeal to God. More and more false prophets appear around people through teachings that promise salvation and to seduce religions.
Science is becoming increasingly atheistic
and seeks God's creation through theories
by the big bang and evolution.
Social trends that contradict the Bible and God's will (for example abortion, gendering or marriage for all)
are increasingly gaining acceptance.
The truth of God and those who preach it are increasingly hated and rejected by most people.
Even the traditional churches are increasingly
rejecting God's word and the proclamation of
salvation through Jesus Christ. Only a small part
of the people stays true to God and truth.
All the rulers of the earth transfer their power to a single person who is directly under Satan's influence. She presents herself as a savior and promises people peace and an end to all misery on earth. In doing so, it overrides God's commandments and instead enacts anti-God laws that most people willingly accept.
In addition, it forbids the spread of the gospel of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ worldwide
so that as many people as possible may be lost. It unites people under a hypocritical pretext to fight against God's people as a common enemy. Many believers who adhere to the truth are being persecuted and killed
for their beliefs around the world. Eventually,
she even lets everyone worship herself as a god.
But God warns us men that there will be no salvation
for those who bow to Satans will.
Satan's dominion over mankind peakes for a short time.
The time of probation for the people is over. God lets
the great judgment, which is announced in the book of Revelation, pass over those people who have resisted
his call to repentance to the end.
Jesus comes back from heaven in the company of thousands upon thousands of angels to judge humanity and to raise all who have been faithful to God
and did God's will to eternal life.
Satan and all who did evil to the last and
Disregard God's will will come to an end.
God transforms the destroyed earth into a new paradise,
in which all people who love God will live forever and ever as one people with one language in unity with God their Creator and in peace with one another .
Sickness, injustice and death are no more.
