We know that all creation keeps on groaning together and being in pain together until now.—Rom. 8:22.

Since 1914, millions have chosen to become willing subjects of God’s enthroned King, Christ Jesus. They refuse to be supporters of Satan’s world. Instead, they use their lives and assets in support of God’s Kingdom, serving its interests. (Rom. 14:7, 8) Soon Christ will destroy Satan’s wicked system. Christ’s perfect government will free the earth of sin and sorrow. It will remove all traces of rebellion against Jehovah’s rightful sovereignty. Loyal servants of God will be in a position to become permanent residents of the earthly Paradise. (Rev. 21:1-5) In a full sense, creation will then have been “set free from enslavement to corruption and have the glorious freedom of the children of God.”—Rom. 8:21. w12 12/15 3:4, 5, 7
