God is a God not of disorder but of peace.1 Cor. 14:33.

Jehovah, the Creator of the universe, does things in an organized manner. His first creation was his only-begotten spirit Son, who is called “the Word” because he is God’s principal spokesman. The Word has served Jehovah for ages, for the Bible states: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God.” A little over 2,000 years ago, God sent the Word to the earth, where he faithfully did his Father’s will as the perfect man Jesus Christ. During his prehuman existence, God’s Son served loyally as His “master worker.”  By means of him, Jehovah brought into existence many millions of other spirit creatures in heaven. Regarding such angels, one Bible account informs us: “A thousand thousands kept ministering to Jehovah].”  God’s numerous spirit creatures are referred to as the well-organized “armies” of Jehovah.

Jehovah is the God of peace and order. His wisdom and power are expressed throughout all creation. There is an order and rank in the invisible world above and in the physical world we live in. Everything, from the smallest known particles of matter to the vast star systems, function according to the order imposed upon them by the Creator. The work of true science is to discover the order which governs the systems.

Take genetics for example. According to the myth of evolution creatures evolve into entirely different species. Animals are believed to have come from fish that got tired of swimming around and so they grew legs and lungs. Supposedly humans evolved from monkeys and apes, which supposedly evolved from lower creatures. While there are obvious similarities in physiology, each being classified as primates and mammals and sharing the same biosphere, God created each according to their kind. Apes and humans are completely different kinds. There are no missing links. While there is unlimited variety within each kind, God has imposed an order upon his creation that says: “according to their kind.” Hence, there is only one kind of human —humankind, mankind.

It is evident that Jehovah has impressed an order upon all creation with one notable exception —  human society. Though having the power to do so God has allowed another god to have a great influence over the world. That god is Satan, the Devil. He is the god of disorder and confusion. In fact, did you know that the word “chaos” is actually the name of a Greek god? Although mythological in nature, the character of the Greek gods were inspired by the demons.

The fact is, there will never be peace on earth as long as the gods of chaos are allowed to hold sway. Fortunately their days are numbered. The only downside is that their final overthrow will be a time of chaos and confusion like no other.

It will be an especially chaotic time for Jehovah’s Witnesses, since they are laboring under the persistent delusion that Satan and the demons were cast down in 1914 and the Kingdom has been ruling ever since. The present “theocratic order” will give way to confusion. That is why the prophecy of Micah says: “The day of your watchmen and of your reckoning will come. Now they will panic.”
