When will suffering and injustices end?

The faithful prophet Habakkuk wanted to know the answers to that question as well. Have you ever felt like this faithful man of God? Habakkuk 1:2-4---"How long, O God, must I cry for help, but you do not hear? How long must I ask for help from violence, but you do not intervene? Why do you make me witness wrongdoing? And why so you tolerate oppression? Why are destruction and violence before me? And why do quarreling and conflict abound? So law is paralyzed, and justice is never carried out. For the wicked surround the righteous; that is why justice is perverted.....Sound familiar?

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Or to quote Ecc 1:9 "What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun."

It would probably all end on the second coming or when the great white throne appears. Humans just don't have what it takes to end it all, it would always be with us like a curse

So true. Humans do not have the ability to rule themselves successfully. Your comment is in harmony with what the Bible says Ecclesiastes 8:9----".....man has dominated man to his own harm or injury"....Isn't interesting that humans have tried every form of government under the sun and yet still cannot bring about desirable conditions for themselves and others?

@itslikethistome Matthew 19:26 New International Version Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

@louievill thank you for your reply. According to the Bible suffering and injustice will soon end permanently (Psalms 37:10-11 and Revelation 21:4) And yes with humans it's an impossibility for humans to bring about peace.
