And they do such a good job of it.
they haven't taken over yet. the world is still in the power of the wicked one.
"The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." And the Bible identifies him, saying: "The one called Devil and Satan . . . is misleading the entire inhabited earth."-1 John 5:19; Revelation 12:9
the question you're wanting an answer to likely is why? why has Jah allowed all of this to unfold?
to resolve the issue of universal sovereignty once and for all. in the beginning, Jah's sovereignty was challenged, when Satan, Adam and Eve rebeled. They were essentially saying "we know what's better for ourselves than Jehovah does". He has allowed time for humans to rule seperate from Him to see how it turned out. We know now "that to earthling man his way does not belong. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step." Time has proven this time and again.
Soon now Jehovah and Jesus will crush Satan and the world he controls (which includes the earthly governments) so that this suffering will end AND it will never happen again. How so? Because if anybody in the future now challenges God's sovereignty, his right to rule, he can point to the time period in which humans ruled seperate from him, and show how that turned out. Thus any rebels will be delt with immediately, and not allowed time to prove their point so as to save millions from suffering at the hands of governments ran seperately from God.
It's a huge issue, and is at the heart of everything.
