Information about history in context is limited. In the present time, not everyone knows they can talk to God directly and be divinely guided too. A promise was made to the people of faith.
As we progress forward, not only will there be renewed spiritual understanding available for everyone, there will be a breaking away of people being oppressed and religious divide. The paradise many millions of people dream of will be created on earth - a world without war, corruption, injustice and self serving officials.
In the world we live in, even high up officials and royals SERVE and are supposed to uplift the people. Every oathtaker has a responsibility and most certainly not to violate any people.
Everyone as individuals, we can only see what we can see and understand what we can understand. Nothing is coincidence! Everything happens with divine timing in God's New World Order!
