Was League of Nations useless

Yes, it was a complete waste of time just as it's successor, the United Nations is a failure. Whenever men attempt to do something that only the Creator can handle properly, then what can we as puny humans expect? Here is what Jeremiah had to say about man's leadership qualities:  "I well know, O Jehovah, that to earthling man his way does not belong. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step." (Jeremiah 10:23) It is interesting also to note that the existence of the League of Nations to be followed by the United Nations was predicted in the book of Revelation and spoken of in figurative language. Notice what is said about the events in Revelation 17:7-11:

"Well, on catching sight of her I wondered with great wonderment. And so the angel said to me: “Why is it you wondered? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the wild beast that is carrying her and that has the seven heads and the ten horns The wild beast that you saw was, but is not, and yet is about to ascend out of the abyss, and it is to go off into destruction. And when they see how the wild beast was, but is not, and yet will be present, those who dwell on the earth will wonder admiringly, but their names have not been written upon the scroll of life from the founding of the world.  “Here is where the intelligence that has wisdom comes in: The seven heads mean seven mountains, where the woman sits on top. And there are seven kings: five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet arrived, but when he does arrive he must remain a short while.And the wild beast that was but is not, it is also itself an eighth [king], but springs from the seven, and it goes off into destruction."

I am sure you do not understand this prophecy but where it says "The wild beast that you saw was, but is not, and yet is about to ascend out of the abyss", this is speaking about the League failing and the UN coming back. If you would like more of an explanation feel free to Email me. I am no "nut case" trying to scare people. This depiction as I have stated has been long known about by Jehovah's Witnesses. Check out their web site if you want. Thanks very much.

This is actually speaking about the League being followed by the United Nations in prophetic language
